Are there any impartial analysts who are not paid to write stock recommendation reports?

Do they exists? Can they survive? Are they credible?

Yes, but usually not paid ones. Take a look at some personal blogs of investors such as AK, pro butterfly.. And heads up, I don't actually look at bank analysts reports - I would vet through what they find first and analyse myself.

Hello Gabriel! When the Motley Fool Singapore was around (I worked there from the very beginning), we were impartial - our only source of revenue were the subscribers who paid us for our investment research and recommendations.

I believe Dr Wealth and Fifth Person (I have friends working in both organisations) also have research services that earn revenue from subscribers - that's impartial to me too.

This has always intrigued me. The accuracy of buy/sell calls by banks and brokerage houses, what are their hit rate? I wonder did anyone do any research on this. But nonetheless, I'm pretty sure you can find plentyful on Seedly as well! Their stock analysis generated is really detailed and useful and most importantly intuitive with the nice graphics and design rather than the long wordy stuffs by banks hahaha

Whether one analyst is credible is not up for them to say, its up to you, the reader to decide via independent thinking

There are indenpendents but these are rare and usually lack resources. The main differentceis between buy-side and sell-side analysts, buy-side work for large insti investors and usually product reports for internal use. sell-side usually work for brokers/dealers and investment banks, this is when they run into conflict of interests and their clients may be the companies these analysts are writing about. This COI has resulted in the MiFid II regulation in Europe, which you can read about about

They are but they tend to be in forums. Some good forums have members that cover certain companies without fear or favour such as Investing note and valuebuddies
