What kind of company should one write an equity research report on?

Like what reasons should someone have for writing a report on Company XYZ?

I'm trying to decide what to write an initiation report on. Could someone help? I was thinking Caribou, but everyone covers that, and it's not like there's something that most analysts are missing that I could pick up on...

Thanks! Any help is greatly, greatly appreciated!

I'd be interested in a report on JCI or John Deere (DE). Are you looking for less well known companies to initiate coverage?

How about MTG?



Just do a quick LM/IS curve and theres where your answer will be. If not, try the ricardian model.
