Global Brokerage Reports Added To Dialog Intelliscope Service

Sep 05, 2003

Dialog, a Thomson business and provider of online-based information services and integrated information solutions, has added 128 new providers of brokerage reports to its Intelliscope online service. The new content providers represent about a 25 percent increase in the number of investment banks, brokerages, and consulting firms contributing their brokerage reports to the Intelliscope service. Dialog said there would be no increase in pricing for Intelliscope, despite the expanded content collection.

Brokerage reports, one category of content available through Intelliscope, are prepared by financial firms and are designed to help guide investment decision-making. Dialog offers them outside the investment community through its Intelliscope service. The brokerage reports available through Intelliscope cover more than 37,500 public and private companies, with more than 1,500 new reports added each business day. Other elements of the reports encompass revenue forecasts, management outlooks, marketing strategies, competitive landscapes, new product plans, industry trends, regulatory issues, product lifecycles, and analysis of business plan executions. Additional content categories available through Intelliscope include Morning Meeting Notes, as well as trade publications, newswires, and other sources of news and analysis.

The new providers of brokerage reports include banks, such as ABN AMRO Bank and Deutsche Bank; international investment firms, such as Bear, Stearns & Co. and Credit Suisse First Boston; and regional firms, such as the Australian-based Burdett Buckeridge Young and SNS Securities, based in the Netherlands.
