10 equity Research As part of one of the largest institutional and retail research departments of any investment banking firm in the industry, approximately 50 fundamental and technical research analysts cover nearly 700 companies in a variety of industry sectors. As testament to the high-caliber analysts who make up our equity research group, Raymond James is regularly recognized with a number of individual analyst awards in The Wall Street Journal s Best on the Street. In 2006, Raymond James Equity Research claimed five awards in the Journal s Best on the Street survey that ranked 72 firms after evaluating analysts from more than 280 sell-side firms. Raymond James has a long-standing reputation for high quality, independent research. Raymond James stock picks performed better than those of 11 other brokers over both the short and long term, reported Worth magazine in 2006, quoting from a Zacks Investment Research study that ranked Raymond James first among the 12 brokerage firms evaluated for stock-picking prowess. The firm also ranked second among small- and mid-cap fund managers in Greenwich Associates 2006 Quality Index study. Raymond James is regularly recognized 9 Past performance does not guarantee future results. The Wall Street Journal does not sponsor, endorse or approve Raymond James & Associates investment programs. During the seven-year period reviewed by Zacks Investment Research, Raymond James recommended 463 securities through its Focus List. Of these 220 advanced and 243 declined. Performance noted in the study includes dividends and a 1% trading commission on additions and deletions. Individual results will vary and an investor would incur commissions (and interest charges if transacted in a margin account) to transact these recommendations. A complete record of all Focus List recommendations since 1998 is available upon request. The results should not and cannot be viewed as an indicator of future performance. The market value of securities fluctuates and investors may incur profits or losses. The Greenwich Quality Index measures overall small-cap and mid-cap equities sales and research quality among United States institutions. Investing in small-cap and mid-cap equities generally involves greater risks and may not be appropriate for everyone.
