I am currently a Global Business/Finance major at a non-target with a 3.7 GPA. I am looking to break into equity research by obtaining an internship next summer (I tried for this summer but did not have luck). I have very little relevant experience and I don't really have any connections, so I decided that if I create equity research reports of my own it will give me an edge.
Is this something that could make a difference or am I wasting my time? Also, I have never written an equity research report before. I have seen some examples of a few so I have a general idea but that's about it. Does anyone have any advice/tips to share?
