Tokyo – Thomson Reuters today announced the winners of the 2017 Thomson Reuters Analyst Awards for Japan. This is the thirteenth year that the awards have been presented to the top ranking stock analysts and brokerage firms across Japan.

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 analysts who have shown outstanding performance either as stock pickers and/or earnings estimators based on the period between 1 July, 2016 and 30 June, 2017.

Raj Shah, the head of StarMine sell-side research awards at Thomson Reuters, said, “These coveted awards provide a lens by which sell-side analyst excellence and performance are measured across the critical research axis, and ultimately the quality of their research to money managers. 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 research firms whose analysts win the most awards (“Most Award-Winning Brokers”).

The winners of the Thomson Reuters Analyst Awards 2017 for Japan are:
