Paul F. Desmond served as the President of Lowry Research Corporation, the oldest continuously published advisory firm in the nation, until his passing in 2018. Paul joined Lowry in 1964 as Director of Research and advanced to President and owner in 1972. Over the course of nearly 50 years, he earned the distinction of being regarded in the industry as the Dean of Supply/Demand analysis. About 85% of the subscribers to the Lowry Analysis are professional investors, including some of the largest hedge funds and private investment counseling firms in the world.
Lowry Research, founded by L. M. Lowry in 1938, has been an enduring part of stock market analysis for more than 80 years because its analysis is a very basic study of the forces of Supply versus Demand, the starting point of all economic analysis. Lowry Research publishes two interactive websites: Lowry onDemand, covering all stocks registered for trading on the New York and NASDAQ Exchanges, as well as Lowry Global, covering 24 major equity markets throughout the Americas, Asia, and Europe.
From 1972 to 1990, Paul also served as the founder and Chairman of Lowry Management Corporation, an S.E.C. registered Investment Adviser and portfolio manager overseeing approximately $400 million in clients accounts. During that same period, he was also the founder and Chairman of Lowry Financial Services Corporation, a registered broker dealer, subsequently acquired by Pacific Mutual Life Insurance Co.
Paul served as President of the CMT Association from 1997 to 1999. He was also a founder of the American Association of Professional Technical Analysts (AAPTA). In 2002, Paul was the recipient of the Charles H. Dow Award for his original ground-breaking research entitled “Identifying Bear Market Bottoms and New Bull Markets.” In 2009, he was honored as The Technical Analyst of the Year by The Technical Analyst Magazine of London. In addition, Lowry Research was honored as the Best Equity Research and Strategy for 2009, 2010, and 2012 by The Technical Analyst Magazine of London.
Paul has authored several widely read white papers on the analysis of market trends, as well as being featured in multiple books. He has been featured in a number of formal interviews in Barron’s Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, Money Magazine, Marketwatch, and a wide variety of other financial publications. He has also been a frequent guest on CNBC and Bloomberg Television.
