Top Analysts New To The List

For the past 40 years, Institutional Investor magazinehas surveyed research directors and chief investment officers at major U.S. money management firms to get their take on the best equity analysts in each sector.

Although many top analysts manage to hold onto their No. 1 spot, this year there are 13 analysts claiming top honors in their sectors for the first time — although all are veterans of the financial industry. They have staked out their top spots by making good calls ahead of the curve, responding to clients in short order, and making a name for themselves on Wall Street.

Although these analysts have been in the business for years and have been recognized by Institutional Investor in the past, they are new in the sense that they have never before claimed the number 1 spot in the magazine’s widely followed list.
