CJS Securities, Inc. seeks to identify quality Small and Mid-cap companies that may be inefficiently priced in the market due to lack of research coverage or a material change in the business. 

CJS Securities actively follows approximately 100 stocks that span a number of sectors/industries.  We are generalists, not "industry analysts," and therefore tend to seek companies that do not typically slot into traditionally "ranked" categories.  Our product consists of basic reports on each of the companies we follow with detailed financial models, frequent written updates as well as a coverage universe “update” distributed four times per year. We also provide clients access to management through non-deal road shows and telephone access to our analysts for additional information, as needed.  In addition, we host two Small and Mid-cap conferences each year; our winter conference is usually held the first full week in January and a summer conference, held in mid July.
