Cowen Group Inc. (COWN) engages in comprehensive banking services, research and institutional sales and trading primarily to the healthcare, technology, media, telecommunications, consumer, alternative energy and defense sectors. The Company offers equity and convertible debt financings, private placements of equity and debt, mergers and acquisitions advisory services including strategic alliances, joint ventures and restricted security sales.

In the report, the analyst notes:

"The Company's revenue and earnings varies with overall world economic conditions, strength of equity markets and the availability of credit. Global equity markets have improved substantially during the third and fourth quarter. Corporate and mortgage credit market spreads have narrowed significantly during the third quarter as well. Steep declines in the value of the U.S. dollar against the euro, yen and sterling have significantly curtailed equity and equity-related offerings within the developed economies.

"Economists appear divided on the outlook for the world economy in 2010. Many mainstream economists herald the end of the recession in North America and Europe, while other private economist point to further and sustained gains in GDP almost completely dependent upon government programs, bailouts from central bankers, flimsy accounting standards and treasury auction manipulations between central banks to artificially support the US dollar. Overall, the outlook for 2010 is murky, with too many variables that can be substantially upsetting to a fragile world economy, including energy prices, residential and commercial foreclosure rates ."
