Equity Research

Our research focuses primarily on companies listed on the German share index (DAX) as well as selected mid and small caps. Within the context of our overall equity strategy, we value stocks and companies using a "bottom-up" approach. Appropriate valuation models and criteria are chosen based on each company's particular characteristics.

Innovative tools of analysis

In addition to company contacts, our tools of analysis and prognosis range from break-up valuations to ratios, sensitivity and structural analysis and business model evaluation. We analyze companies in their relevant competitive context whether domestic, European or global. Our analysts are assisted in their work by our custom-designed databases and IT support systems which allow us to compress and synthesize large amounts of data.

Local expertise

With headquarters in Germany’s financial center Frankfurt/Main, Metzler Research has extensive knowledge of the local peculiarities of the German equity market. We are thus highly qualified to react promptly to changing market conditions and make clear investment recommendations with precise price targets.
