January 08, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
WALTHAM, Mass.—Battle Road Research, an independent voice, recently launched coverage of the hardware segment, marking an important expansion of its technology sector coverage. "The rapid adoption of broadband internet services and the explosive growth of storage-intensive rich media are driving demand for computer and storage systems," said Ben Z. Rose, Battle Road Research president and analyst.

Based near Boston, Battle Road Research serves professional money managers and individual investors with a straight-forward Buy, Hold, Sell research service focused on more than 70 technology, renewable energy, education and eConsumer stocks.

Stocks in Battle Road's hardware coverage range from tech titans Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), Dell (NASDAQ: DELL), EMC (NYSE: EMC), Hewlett Packard (NYSE: HPQ), and IBM (NYSE: IBM), to mid-sized storage providers NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP), Western Digital (NYSE: WDC), Seagate (NYSE: STX), as well as small cap players Netezza (NYSE ARCA: NZ), and SonicWALL (NASDAQ: SNWL).

Battle Road analysts place an equal weight on industry and securities analysis in an effort to identify stocks to buy and stocks to avoid. Analysts tap into a homegrown network of industry experts who provide insight into the companies they cover. In addition, Battle Road analysts build proprietary models to detect shifting and shifty accounting policies. As a matter of principle, Battle Road Research refrains from investment banking, company-sponsored reports, and personal investment in the stocks that it researches.

"We look forward to expanding our research coverage over the next year, both within technology, renewable energy, and education, as well as into new sectors," said Rose. Additional information may be found at
