Thomson Reuters Announces Winners of 2015 StarMine Analyst Awards – France

CM-CIC Securities (ESN Partnership) recognized as the top brokerage firm; Arsène Guekam, of CM-CIC Securities (ESN Partnership) and Jean-Michel Köster, also of CM-CIC Securities (ESN Partnership) take top individual awards

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

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 based on the calendar year of 2014, and/or earnings estimators on the fiscal period that reported between April 1, 2014 and March 31, 2015.

Raj Shah, head of StarMine sell-side research at Thomson Reuters, added, “With sell-side research seeing change, research departments have been forced to make tough decisions on which stocks and sectors to cover, driving them to rethink not only the size of their departments but their research model. Analysts had to be responsive to the changes in the sorts of research and analysis requested by money managers. Winning analysts were those that did well in unraveling emerging trends, articulating the investment case and identifying the opportunity for their clients to make money. 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”).
