In 2005 Tom founded Equities Research LLC, a small boutique investment research firm where he provides market research analysis and consulting services to both Issuers (private and public) and Wall Street professionals. Tom’s experience as an investment banker, financial advisor, institutional equity broker, bond broker, entrepreneur and director of a public company gives him the unique ability to see all sides of Wall Street. Tom provides invaluable insight to both issuers and investors, from the novice to top Wall Street executives. In 1997 Tom was an original owner of Newsgrade Corporation, a private online publishing company, a private online publishing company that annually generated millions of timely and actionable automated unique stories that were streaming on Bloomberg Terminals for institutional investors. By 2003 Tom had become Managing Director of National Sales for Stockdiagnostics.com, a subsidiary of Newsgrade that he helped to create.

Well here we are a week later and another company, Cost Plus, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPWM) has announced they will be acquired.
