Finance Magazine Stockbroking Survey 2007

Davy Goodbody Merrion Landsbanki NCB

Historical Results
Davy hangs on despite Merrion surge
The twenty first Finance Stockbroking Survey shows an advance by Merrion Stockbrokers to challenge the dominance of the major stockbroking firms, with Davy just about retaining its overall dominance in terms of number of categories won in the Finance Stockbroking Survey 2007. However, with sixteen overall categories won, Davys had to rely on victories in the bond categories to retain its overall ‚€ėblue riband‚€ô, against Merrion's thirteen.
Analyst rankings reflect excellence and new focuses
Merrion and Goodbody have tended to dominate the individual analyst rankings in recent years and this trend is continued this year, with Goodbody capturing four individual analyst ‚€ėfirsts‚€ô, while Merrion captured 9 (four of which were won by John Mattimoe). Davy analysts headed the list in two categories, and NCB in one.
Foreign investment raises the stakes for Irish firms
Since the adoption of the euro, the Irish investment market has become increasingly dominated by foreign investors. Conor O‚€ôKelly argues that the bearish outlook for Irish equities has forced many investors to come back to Irish brokers.
Quality research for clients is the key
Clients are looking for a clear message from their broker; one that is delivered with conviction and backed by compelling data, says Enrique Curran. International and domestic investors alike await evidence that earnings forecasts in Ireland are robust, he says.
The changing challenges of the Irish equity market
Having enjoyed a decade of growth and diversification of investors, Irish equities are now suffering from a flight of investment to other jurisdictions, writes Robbie Kelleher. He says that the dramatic events of late have left Irish equities undervalued.
In-depth analysis needed to navigate dislocated market
With unprecedented levels of volatility in Irish equities, it is more important than ever for stockbrokers to offer clients an in-depth, case-by-case analysis of domestic companies, writes Roy Barrett.
