How many ideas do you expect your analysts to generate per year?
Curious to ask any of the PMs on here how often they expect their analysts to generate ideas. Preferably looking for non-equity MM PMs as I know those guys tend to work under a pretty tight schedule from quarter-to-quarter and generally have a defined coverage universe so there's not a lot of wiggle room.
For anyone who invests/trades more opportunistically (as opposed toaround quarterly earnings), how many ideas are you pitching per year? How many does your PM actually add to the book?
For reference, I've seen anything from very frequent (think 2-4x per month) intraday/intraweek ideas to very infrequent (2-4x per year) long-term trades/investments and everything in between. Seems to be a huge spread and I'm not sure what is supposed to be "normal," although I guess what is "normal" will probably be strategy dependent.
