The origins of Thompson Davis & Company date back to the late 1980s at Branch Cabell & Co.
E. Hunter Thompson, Jr. (then, Branch Cabell's Research Director) formed an institutional research group that focused on stocks that met certain growth characteristics he had developed. These growth characteristics were expanded and refined by the group over the next 15 years.
Branch Cabell & Co. was acquired in 2000 by Tucker Anthony. Shortly thereafter, RBC Dain Rauscher acquired Tucker Anthony. With the desire to be independent and continue to provide our clients with truly original, unbiased equity research and asset management, we formed our own firm, Thompson, Davis & Company.
