Metals Analyst Chris Olin Joins Rosenblatt Securities

Monday, September 28, 2015

New York, September 28, 2015 — Rosenblatt Securities is pleased to announce that veteran metals-industry analyst Chris Olin has joined the firm. Based in Cleveland, Olin will cover publicly listed metals, specialty-materials and aerospace-supply companies, such as Alcoa, Nucor and Carpenter Technologies. His joining Rosenblatt marks a further broadening of the firm’s investment-research offering, bolstering existing analysis of financial services, coverage of technology, media and telecom (TMT) companies and a suite of non-US research offered through partners in China, Taiwan, Africa and the Middle East.

Olin brings to Rosenblatt nearly 20 years of experience in the metals, mining, construction-materials and global-aerospace sectors, during which he has developed extensive industry knowledge and a rich network of contacts that inform his research. Prior to joining Rosenblatt, Olin spent 10 years covering the metals sector for Cleveland Research and three years in a similar role at Longbow Research. He has been cited by Forbes Magazine as one of the top 10 stock pickers in the United States and No. 1 in the metals sector.

“I am very excited to be working with Chris Olin again,” said Evan Morgan, managing director and head of research sales at Rosenblatt. “His in-depth analysis, driven by unique industry surveys and strong relationships with both suppliers and consumers, is very well regarded by institutional investors. I look forward to bringing this excellent research product to our clients.”

“Chris’ work is another great addition to the differentiated, value-added research platform we have been layering on top of our best-in-class execution services over the past few years,” added Rosenblatt President & COO Joe Gawronski. “In particular, I love its depth and the fact that it shows a thorough understanding of the supply chain, much like our TMT research.”
