TipRanks Identifies the Top 300 Analysts of 2017

TipRanks, the world’s leading analyst ranking service, has identified the Top 300 Wall Street analysts of 2017. The number 1 analyst of 2017 was Joseph Foresi of Cantor Fitzgerald.

The ranking was based on the analysts’ ability to generate return with their stock ratings and price targets. TipRanks’ algorithms calculated the average return and statistical significance of each rating, as well as the overall success rate. Each rating made during 2017 was measured over a time-frame of 3 months.

TipRanks discovered that one key sector — tech — dominated the list. This again underlines how tech stocks outperformed the rest of the market in 2017.

CEO of TipRanks, Uri Gruenbaum, commented, “While we are not an analyst endorsement platform, we are always excited to see those that generate excess returns and feel obligated to highlight them. Clearly, 2017 was the year of the smaller research firms as most of the top performing analysts came from private research firms.”

Based on TipRanks data, the Top 300 Wall Street Analysts of 2017 are:
