Walter Deemer began his Wall Street career in July, 1963 as a Merrill Lynch research trainee. In April, 1964, he moved to their Market Analysis Department, where he worked directly under Bob Farrell, and he has been a full-time market analyst ever since.
In February, 1966, Walter joined Tsai Management and Research just before the initial offering of the Manhattan Fund. In May, 1970, he went to the Putnam Management Company in Boston, one of the most prestigious money management firms in the world at the time(!) and headed Putnam's Market Analysis Department throughout the ten years he worked there. For part of that time, Walter was a full member of Putnam's Investment Policy Committee, and he was promoted to Senior Vice President in 1976.
Walter formed his own company, Deemer Technical Research Inc., in July 1980, which has successfully offered his market strategies and insights to institutional clients since that time.
