New Report Compares How Wall Street vs. Main Street Investors Research Stock Opportunities
"Shareholder Confidence 365 Study" guides public companies on the tactical and practical aspects of communicating with shareholders

NEW YORK, June 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Vintage, the capital markets, corporate services and institutional & fund services division of PR Newswire, today announced the publication of the exclusive new report - Shareholder Confidence 365 Study: "How are Investors Consuming your Investor Relations Content?"  The report was formally introduced during last week's 2016 National Investor Relations Institute's (NIRI) Annual Conference in San Diego.


New Report Compares How Wall Street vs. Main Street Investors Research Stock Opportunities. "Shareholder Confidence 365 Study" guides public companies on the tactical and practical aspects of communicating with shareholders.

The report is comprised of data accumulated from over 6,870 responses from a pool of 16,000 buy-side analysts & portfolio managers and from over 15,000 long-term holding retail investors.

Initially launched in 2012, the Shareholder Confidence 365 Study is an ongoing study targeted at two key constituents with whom public companies communicate: institutional investors and individual investors. It was the first study of its kind: directly asking investors how they consume investor relations content. In 2014, a follow-up study was published.

For the 2016 iteration, the results are segmented and compared between institutional investors and individual investors.

"The goal of this report is simple and, in the vocabulary of the industry, very transparent," said Bradley H. Smith, Director of Marketing, Director of Marketing, Investor Relations and Regulatory Compliance Services at PR Newswire & Vintage. "By tracking and comparing the content consumption of both institutional investors and individual investors, an Investor Relations department can make better informed decisions on how to allocate their budget. This assures they are satisfying their stakeholders' needs while getting an intelligent value for the services they buy – especially from our quiver of shareholder communications and SEC regulatory solutions."
