Bethesda, MD, February 7, 2008 – Cyon Research Corporation, a business analyst consultancy for engineering technology markets, announced that it has made its historically private Cyon Research Stock Index publicly available for the first time. This detailed view of the index of selected publicly traded stocks can now be accessed free by anyone at cyonresearch.com/stocks.
The Cyon Research Index tracks the performance of bundles of stocks that provide a tool for understanding the movement of market sectors related to design and engineering software. The sectors traced include AEC, mechanical design, GIS, plant design, and EDA, with comparables for general hardware and service providers. The mechanical design sector is further refined into subsectors for MCAD, MCAE, CAM, cPDM, and RP.
For nearly a decade, industry professionals and investors alike have regarded the Cyon Research Index as a valuable tool for understanding the nuances of market growth. Previously the performance analysis had been available only to subscribers of Cyon Research’s monthly publication, the Engineering Automation Report, which Cyon Research sold in 2007.
“Historically, we have used the indicators for our own purposes to refine our understanding of both the state of the industry and the direction of its various sectors. By making the annually updated index public, it can reach a much broader audience,” says Cyon Research CEO Brad Holtz. “More frequent valuations are still exclusive to our clientele.”
