Argus Research is a leading independent investment research organization providing quality research since 1934. Argus analysts, economists, and portfolio strategists forecast and monitor economic trends, analyze industries, and issue recommendations (buy, hold or sell) on a universe of 500 stocks. Each Argus rating must have a clear, reasonable, and adequate basis. The process starts with the analyst's application of our rigorous six-point system which includes meetings with senior managers. This methodology combined with our independence enables us to develop ideas which are then communicated in a straight forward manner to our clients, making them compete effectively in the marketplace.
