Today the Mays Report™ has become an operating unit of Mays Research™ and is expected to restart operations and relaunch the Mays Report™ web site sometime during 2016. Mays Research™ is an independent investment research firm focused on the food production value chain from upstream seed and fertilizer companies to downstream food retail and distribution companies and supermarkets. Our approach to analysis requires us to perform in depth research and analysis in the equities and alternative investments asset classes. Within those classes we cover companies in both the consumer staples and basic materials sectors in the equity asset class as well as the grains and livestock futures markets in the alternative investments asset class. This firm was originally operated between June 2009 and August 2014 as The Mays Report™ and initially specialized in fertilizer stocks as well as the grains markets. Before deciding to cease operations and pursue new opportunities an expansion of the firms coverage universe began that included companies downstream in the food production chain.
