|Abstract:||Using textual analysis for a large sample of analyst reports, we find that analysts are more likely to use DCF model than PE model and engage in more cash flow and discount rate discussions when investors have a stronger demand for value-relevant information.

These results indicate that analysts’ valuation process reflects investor demand for value-relevant information and has a bearing on the quality of their research|
