NEW YORK, April 1, 2021 – CFRA, one of the world’s largest providers of independent investment research, today announced that it has acquired Lowry Research Corporation.

With the addition of Lowry Research, CFRA further strengthens its already robust research offerings. CFRA clients will now be able to leverage Lowry’s in-depth, technical tabulations that provide the statistical foundation for supply vs. demand analysis of market trends.

“Adding Lowry’s industry leading technical research and analytic capabilities creates new value for our clients across both the institutional investor and wealth management segments of the market,” said Peter de Boer, CEO of CFRA. “In Lowry Research we have a tremendous partner who shares our values, is aligned around our vision, and is committed to the highest quality of research with indispensable results.”

Founded in 1938 by L.M. Lowry, Lowry Research Corporation has provided unbiased and factual based analysis of the stock market using, amongst other metrics, its exclusive Buying Power and Selling Pressure indices which depict the forces of Supply and Demand at work in the stock market.

“With Lowry, CFRA adds best-in-class technical analysis to its lineup of best-in-class equity research, best-in-class ETF and mutual fund research, and best-in-class forensic research,” says Beth Piskora, CFRA Head of Global Editorial Operations, who will head the Lowry unit post-acquisition. “No matter what approach our wealth manager or individual investor clients take, we have a top-notch research product to help them identify the securities they want to buy and sell.”

Indeed, technical research has a use case in each of CFRA’s major market segments. Combined with other CFRA content, the Lowry content will forward CFRA’s “Clients First” goal – by creating a unique and differentiated product offering.

“Joining CFRA provides the resources necessary to enhance and expand the capabilities of Lowry Research, without affecting the ability to provide unbiased and fact-based analysis to clients,” states Jacques LeFevre, COO of Lowry Research, who will be assisting with the transition. “It is an exciting opportunity for the Lowry staff to build upon eighty plus years of Lowry Research excellence.”

Founded in 1994, CFRA is one of the world’s largest providers of independent investment research. Through a differentiated methodology blending forensic accounting, fundamental equity research, and technical analysis, CFRA empowers its clients to confidently evaluate sectors, industries, funds, and companies with unique insights, alternative data, and proven results.
