Thomson Reuters Analyst Awards 2017: Winners of US awards announced

Wells Fargo Securities recognized as the top brokerage firm; Christopher Ellinghaus (Williams Capital Group) and Toshiya Hari (Goldman Sachs) take top individual awards

NEW YORK  Thomson Reuters announced the winners of the 2017 Thomson Reuters Analyst Awards for the U.S. This is the twelfth year that the awards have been presented to the top ranking stock analysts and brokerage firms across in the U.S.

The Awards, based on objective Thomson Reuters StarMine sell-side securities analysts’ ratings, measure the performance of analysts against the industry excess returns of their buy/sell recommendations and the accuracy of their earnings estimates. The 2017 awards recognise the sell-side securities analysts who have shown outstanding performance as either Stock Pickers during the 2016 calendar year, and/or Earnings Estimators during the fiscal quarter periods reported between April 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017.

Raj Shah, the head of StarMine sell-side research awards at Thomson Reuters, said, “These prized awards are more relevant than ever as the standard by which sell-side analyst excellence and performance are measured across the critical research axis and as a benchmarking tool for buy-side budgets. My congratulations to all the ranked analysts on providing truly differentiated research and extracting outsized returns from their coverage.”

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”).
