Thomson Reuters Announces Winners of 2015 StarMine Analyst Awards – Singapore

Citi Research recognized as the top brokerage firm; Adrian Chua, of Citi Research and Gerald Wong of Credit Suisse take top individual awards

Singapore - Thomson Reuters today announced the winners of the 2015 StarMine Analyst Awards for Singapore. This is the seventh year that StarMine has presented its awards to the top stock analysts and brokerage firms in Singapore.

StarMine, a leading provider of objective ratings of sell-side securities analysts, measures the performance of analysts based on the industry excess returns of their buy/sell recommendations and the accuracy of their earnings estimates. The 2015 awards recognise the sell-side analysts who have shown outstanding performance either as stock pickers and/or earnings estimators based on the period between 1 July, 2014 and 30 June, 2015.

Raj Shah, head of StarMine sell-side research at Thomson Reuters, added, “StarMine recognizes that stock picking and estimates accuracy are among the most coveted intelligence provided by sell-side analysts. The winning analysts were those that sifted deep into their industries and distilled more research insights to help their discerning institutional investors understand and interpret emerging signals. By providing truly differentiated research and extracting outsized returns from their coverage, these analysts stood out in the eyes of the investor community for their outstanding performance. Congratulations to all of this year’s ranked analysts.”

Analysts are awarded prizes in three main categories: stock recommendation performance relative to specific industry benchmarks (“Stock Pickers”), accuracy in forecasting earnings as compared with peers (“Earnings Estimators”) and brokerage firms whose analysts win the most awards (“Most Award-Winning Brokers”).
