About Us


Fox Advisors is a boutique sell side equity research firm focused on providing in-depth intelligence using unique, proprietary methods and corporate access to understand trends in electronics supply chains, automotive technologies, and a wide set of storage products. With such a wide range of expertise, Fox Advisors is able to leverage deep industry contacts and alternative macrodata that is used to provide unparalleled and opinionated research depth and accuracy.

Our research on the technology supply chain centers heavily on component technologies (from Corning’s Gorilla Glass and optical fiber to electronic connectors and sensors from TE Connectivity, Amphenol and Sensata) plus distributors of components (Arrow and Avnet) and EMS providers (Jabil and Flex) that build complex designs for Amazon, Cisco, Ford, Johnson & Johnson, NetApp, and others.

When it comes to auto technology, we focus on Transportation-as-a Service companies such as Bird, Lyft and Uber, but also the technologies on their roadmaps including mapping, AI and machine learning algorithms, sensors, full autonomous vehicle technology and certain functions in between that are being developed by companies such as Aptiv.

Finally, our coverage in the storage sector consists of everything from hard disk drives (HDDs), to NAND flash memory, DRAM, all the way up to full storage arrays and associated software.

Founder and CEO Steven Fox launched Fox Advisors following 25+ years of sell side equity research experience at Cross Research, an independent research provider, and Merrill Lynch, where he covered supply chain and technology OEMs.

During his time at Merrill, Steven was recognized on Institutional Investor’s All-American Research Team in all five years that he was eligible, including a second team ranking in 2007 and 2008.

Throughout his many years in the industry, Steven has covered companies and markets in North America, Europe, and Asia, lending him a unique worldly perspective encompassing all companies in his coverage universe.

 

Fox Advisors consists of Founder & CEO Steven Fox, Senior Associate Aneesha Patel, and a nationwide sales and marketing team powered by Analyst Hub. Steven saw an opportunity with Analyst Hub to take his business to the next level while maintaining the independence of an IRP in order to cover electronics supply chains, including a special focus on how they relate to storage and automotive technologies. This partnership gives Steven and Aneesha the opportunity to focus on helping their clients position their investments for success.
