Francesco's Recent Publications

* Secondary Coverage

Secondary coverage can be a "Profile" or is defined as analyst coverage of a company that was initiated on within the past three years with subsequent research reports. The distinction is that a research report has not been written within a recent reasonable period of time. Note that if coverage has been terminated, then the company cannot be included in secondary coverage.
