Published by Mark Bodnar

To find the Argus reports within S&P Capital IQ, select the Research tab, then pick Argus Research Company from the Contributors list. See my earlier post for other ways to search for research reports in S&P Capital IQ.

The majority oScreen capture of the cover of an Argus Industry report from S&P Capital IQ. f CapIQ's Argus documents are equity reports featuring Buy/Sell/Hold recommendations and quantitative analysis, but I'm most excited about the much smaller (but growing!) number of Argus Industry Review & Outlook reports in the database.

Those documents — currently numbering just 26 — offer a detailed overview of broad industries (e.g., Regional Banks, Biotechnology, and Food & Staples Retailing), including a summary of recent changes in the technological, economic, and competitive environment, a listing of major firms, and some tips on what to pay attention to if investing in each industry.

To focus your S&P Capital IQ search on only the Argus Industry Review & Outlook series, choose Argus Research Company from the Contributors list (as above), then add "Argus Industry Review" to the Keyword field, and check off the option to search within the headlines only. Here's a screen capture showing those search steps:

I've listed the Argus Industry Review & Outlook series among the many other industry research options available to SFU researchers on our Industry Surveys guide.
