Abstract:     
We provide evidence that the research of equity analysts affiliated with corporate lenders reflects private information obtained through the commercial lending relationships. Lender-affiliated analysts improve the accuracy of their earnings forecasts on borrowers after a lending relationship is established, and publish more accurate research prior to adverse credit-related events. Lender-affiliated analysts’ accuracy gains increase in their geographic proximity to the lending activity. Furthermore, we find evidence that analysts induce a positive recommendation bias to help secure the lending business. Lending-related informational advantages persist beyond Regulation FD and the Global Settlement, but the strategic use of bias ends with these regulations.
