Analyst reports are frequently written to provide guidance to investors as to whether to invest in specific companies or industry sectors. Reports are focused on recent financials or expected share price movements, sometimes relative to competitors in the same industry. Sometimes, reports may be referred to as: Broker research; Broker reports; Equity research; Sell-side reports; Aftermarket research. These terms are often used interchangeably. 

Investment banks employ financial analysts or security analysts who are experts in evaluating companies and providing "buy", "sell" or "hold" recommendations.

Examples of investment banks which produce analyst reports include: RBC Capital Markets; Morgan Stanley; Deutsche Bank, etc.
