For this episode of Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Ralph Garcea from Echelon Wealth Partners. Ralph was a participant on the “Institutional Investors” panel at the Planet MicroCap Showcase, which is available on Stock News Now’s YouTube channel. After that panel, I had the pleasure of speaking to Ralph more, and I thought he would be a great guest to have to describe his experiences as a professional analyst. We’ve spoken to a lot of individual investors on the podcast discussing their strategies and I was curious if there was a fundamental difference between them and professional analysts. The goal for this episode is to learn more about how a professional analyst goes about doing their due diligence and research on a MicroCap company.
