TipRanks Identifies the Top 100 Wall Street Analysts of 2020

TipRanks, the world’s leading analyst ranking service, has identified the Top 100 Wall Street analysts of 2020.

Jason Helfstein from Oppenheimer is in first place, followed by Colin Rusch, also an Oppenheimer analyst. Mark Mahaney who recently left RBC Capital and is a regular on our annual lists made third place.

The ranking was based on the analysts’ ability to generate returns with their stock ratings and price targets. TipRanks’ algorithms calculated the average return and statistical significance of each rating, as well as the analysts’ overall success rate. Each rating made during 2020 was measured over three months.

TipRanks CEO, 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. In 2020, we continued to see the power of smaller research firms in producing a disproportionate number of top-performing analysts.”
