At Tier4 Research, we look at companies tied to aerospace markets and the entire global supply chain differently. We are able to draw broader conclusions about macro level aerospace companies (like Boeing) through ground up analysis of the lesser-covered specialty materials markets integral to the formulation of the aerospace industry’s most critical moving parts.

 

Specialty Materials Expertise – Chris Olin started his work in the specialty materials universe, driven by the high-level feedback collected from titanium, nickel-alloy and aluminum-levered contacts. Over time, communications slowly expanded into other companies and products that are more difficult to track, including aerospace fasteners, composite materials, premium forgings, and aircraft interiors.

 

Extensive Market Research + Surveys – Tier4 Research conducts frequent surveys, expert calls, and focus groups to better understand the trends and competitive dynamics facing the aerospace industry and our covered companies.

 

Focus on Lesser-Covered Companies – No other sellside research analyst has this focused of an approach to the aerospace industry, especially not combined with this level of expert access. While the companies Tier4 Research covers are relatively small, they can have a huge impact on the industry at large as seen in the 737 Max issues – one of Chris Olin’s particular claims to fame.

 

*Tier4 Research conducts intensive due diligence on our expert usage and ensures all experts do not share material, nonpublic information as it relates to the collection of data.*

One of the most important factors that makes Tier4 Research insightful is our extensive access to both corporate decision makers and production level employees. After such a long time in the industry, Chris Olin has become a respected name in the sellside research category, granting him benefits that other firms might not have.

 

Huge Roster – After 20+ years researching the aerospace industry supply chain, Chris Olin has built up personal relationships with countless important contacts that his clients also benefit from. From production level employees, to industry experts, to C-level corporate connections, Chris Olin truly knows who’s who within his coverage universe.

 

Previous Entrepreneurial Experience – Everyone can hand out a business card or release a research report, but not everyone can do the work to develop and form their own company – not once, not twice, but three times. Prior to forming Tier4 Research, Chris was a founding partner at both Cleveland Research Company and Longbow Research, where he developed his bottoms-up survey process that provides investors with more accurate data points and information.

 

Direct Access for Clients – Nothing backs up a research report like connecting directly with experts through curated events. For clients, being able to directly ask questions and hear expert opinions leads to unparalleled trust in the research we provide. At Tier4 Research, our access is your access.

 

Public Recognition – Chris Olin has twice been named by Forbes Magazine as a top metals and materials stock picker. In 2006, he was highlighted as the #6 stock picker in the country (for all markets) and #1 in metals and mining. He frequently speaks at major industry conferences, presenting findings from his proprietary survey work and market analytics.

Chris Olin has earned a reputation among clients and corporations alike as a decisive sellside research analyst who isn’t afraid to tell the truth about the trends he notices in the aerospace industry.

 

Clear, Proprietary Information – Our data is aggregated into specialized indexes which can show potential inflection points that can be used to highlight investment opportunities or future industry talking points.

 

Patience + Knowledge – Interesting data points are always coming up, but the key to a good investment strategy is knowing which data to pay attention to, and which to ignore. Tier4 Research can provide that insight based on years of previous experience.

 

Decisive Recommendations, Backed by Data – We hate neutral recommendations, and will never recommend our clients to BUY or SELL specific equities unless the recommendation is supported by underlying channel research.
