PhD medical scientist here with no background in finance or wall street. Whenever I perform a due diligence for a specific healthcare or biotech company, I develop a thesis from a scientists perspective for myself before I invest, but I'm not sure what this type of work this is called. I figured that there's got to be something marketable about my work, but I'm not sure what to call it. Equity research? I basically critically analyze the experimental and clinical data that every company publishes/presents and determine if it passes my standards for a long-term investment
I apologize for the inexperience, but is this what research analysts do? I investigate companies like this on my own time, but I perform my due diligence from a very different angle.
I plan on cold emailing senior research analysts on getting their personal opinion, but I thought I'd drop by here first. I made a blog to upload my personal work called scientific-investments (can't upload a link bc i'm new here)
Thanks for the help!
