About BCA

Doing thoughtful and leading edge research can be more time-consuming than coming up with market ideas, but it has more lasting benefits. A reputation of making good calls can easily be lost, but a reputation of doing good research tends to persist. Both are necessary. Doing in-depth research is of no value if we can never get the markets right. But as noted above, we are unlikely to get the markets right unless we do in-depth research. Historically, BCA has established its reputation by doing provocative and thought provoking research.
