The article reports that the National Research Exchange (NRE) was launched recently with much fanfare, positioning itself as an intermediary between investors, corporations and issuer-paid research firms. Public companies with small capitalizations have seen their research coverage shrink in recent years, prompting some to consider paying a research firm to provide coverage. The NRE aims to eliminate the potential for taint by stepping between the buyer and the seller to handle payment and ensure that both sides live up to their ends of the bargain.
