What determines which companies get covered by sell-side research?
Curious to know
Some of these stocks I'm looking at are not covered by sell-side research, despite being very good / solid companies
Feel that one of the reasons for mispricings on these companies is because there is no coverage on them
However, I'm not sure if / what would make sell-side researchers cover the company. Ideally would like to use it as a potential catalyst for the stock price rising but want to confirm generally how one decides which companies get covered
