Research Capabilities


Stifel research focuses on all market caps, but is a leader in small- and mid-cap research. The department is staffed predominantly with industry professionals from outside Wall Street. In fact, many of its analysts have hands-on work experience in the industry that they research.  Stifel believes industry experience, its opportunistic approach, and broad market cap coverage drive excess returns and its award-winning franchise.

Stifel Equity Research Teams ranked No. 5 among 156 qualifying firms and earned a total of 15 awards in the 2020 Refinitiv StarMine Analyst Awards.  Stifel earned five #1 rankings and has had 14 consecutive top ten finishes.  

Stifel has the nation’s largest U.S. equity research platform and a global footprint focusing on 12 major sectors and covering more than 2,000 companies.
