FINANCE Stockbroking Survey 2005: Davy is still in pole position Back  
Davy Stockbrokers has once again out-performed all other stockbroking firms in the 2005 FINANCE Stockbroking Survey. However, as in 2003, Goodbody Stockbrokers has come away with one of the top titles, ‘Best Irish Equity Research Overall’. Newly acquired Merrion Capital also polled very strongly, with Robert Brisbourne taking ‘Research Report of the Year’, and ‘Analyst of the Year’.
In the overall firm categories Davy Stockbrokers has roared into pole position in this year’s survey, winning a total of six out of the 11 categories, including ‘Best Sales Trading Service/Execution/Ability to Deal in Size’, ‘Best Sales Service’ and ‘Best Economic Research’.

However, with another strong performance in this year’s survey is Goodbody Stockbrokers, who have, for the second time since 2002, taken one of the main titles, ‘Best Irish Equity Research Overall’, pipping Davy to the post.

NCB has held onto its ‘Best International Equity Research (Excluding Irish Equities)’ title, beating off both Merrion and Davy, as well as winning a new category in this year’s survey, ‘Best Technical Analysis’. Merrion also performed well, winning an award for ‘Best for Objectivity of Equity Research’.

On the individual analyst front, Davy’s Robbie Kelleher was awarded both ‘Best Equity Strategist’ and ‘Best Research Economist’. Davy’s Barry Dixon won two awards, ‘Best Technology Analyst’ and ‘Best Hotels and Leisure Analyst’.

Landsbanki will be pleased with its new acquisition’s performance in this year’s survey. Robert Brisbourne, in a super performance, was crowned ‘Analyst of the Year’, winning this award for the first time. Elsewhere he was awarded ‘Best Food & Beverages /Agribusiness Analyst’ beating long-time winner of that award John O’Reilly of Davy, and he also won the ‘Research Report of the Year’ award for his report on the food and drinks industry, ‘C&C Magners Survey’. Robert Eason of Goodbody won the ‘Best Construction & Building Materials Analyst’ award for the third year in a row.

Elsewhere in research, Goodbody again won ‘Best Morning Research Notes’ for its ‘Goodbody Irish Equity Morning Meeting Wrap’, followed by Davy and Merrion, with Davy taking the title of Best Equity Books (printed or online), followed by Goodbody and NCB.

On the sales side, Merrion’s Adrian O’Carroll held onto his title of ‘Best Equity Sales
Person’. In bonds, NCB’s Dermot O’Brien has scooped the’Best Research Economist’, with last year’s winner, Davy’s Donal O’Mahony falling back to second place, in this year’s survey, follwed by AIB’s Oliver Mangan.
