Watch below as CEO Jeffrey Kraws explains in detail who we are, what we do, how our research is used, and what sets us apart from conventional research firms.
What We Do
Crystal Research Associates provides investor-based research and corporate communications services to increase the visibility of innovative and growing private and public companies that represent extraordinary investment opportunities. Regardless of the size of the client, our independent research and advisory services provide additional value and assistance in realizing a company’s goals, enabling it to achieve its fullest potential.
We have successfully articulated the exceptional stories of small- and mid-cap companies to the Wall Street investor community since 2003. Our methods are well-established and diverse—from compiling and disseminating objective, factual information for both institutional and retail investor audiences to capitalizing on our expansive line of targeted distribution channels, which include industry-leading financial data and information providers complemented by the use of prominent social media channels and by strategic and targeted appearances on national news programs and print media.
Our team works proactively and closely with clients to gain a clear understanding of their goals, ensuring that their company is properly, honestly, and effectively represented to investors, the media, and the business community. We pride ourselves on our ability to fulfill the needs of each individual client and their existing and future investors by communicating each company’s profile, management, technology, and market clearly and directly, in strict accordance with NIRI and SEC guidelines.
What Makes Us Independent
Crystal Research Associates does not offer direct investment banking or brokerage services to clients, so we are able to maintain our independence and objectivity when examining and detailing a company’s business for investors. Unlike conventional analyst reports, our products do not contain ratings ("Outperform," "Market Perform," "Underperform," or in plain language, "buy," "hold," and "sell"), target prices, or financial models with projections, which frequently cause investors to discount the credibility of information presented. Rather, our products are built upon a tried-and-true model of Facts Without Fiction™, which emphasizes thorough research, accurate reporting, and in-depth analysis from experienced Wall Street analysts presented in a format that audiences can easily digest in order to make an investment decision. This approach has been proven successful over the years as our products are prominently published and available on Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters/First Call, Capital IQ, FactSet, Yahoo! Finance, and scores of other popular forums. Importantly, the merits of Facts Without Fiction™ have been validated as we are the only unrated research service selected to provide research and analysis to Thomson Reuters’ subscribers.

Our clients and the investment community receive the best of both worlds: detailed independent research and market analysis written within the SEC’s Regulation Fair Disclosure (FD) guidelines and the perspective of a seasoned, top-ranked Wall Street analyst team.
