Thomson Reuters Announces Winners of 2015 StarMine Analyst Awards – Iberia

BBVA recognized as the top brokerage firm; Javier Pinedo, of BBVA and Aránzazu Bueno, of Santander GBM take top individual awards

London – Thomson Reuters today announced the winners of the 2015 StarMine Analyst Awards for Iberia. This is the eighth year that StarMine has presented its awards to the top stock analysts and brokerage firms across Spain and Portugal.

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 a changing sell-side research landscape, real rigour was required in the research as analysts formulated their forecasts and recommendations. Analysts had to react to the changing demands of the buy-side while at the same time continuing to help them interpret emerging signals. Winning analysts were those who were not afraid to make a sell recommendation, and issued estimates that were more timely and accurate than their peers. 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”).
