Mike Gallo and David Westenberg Win Top Stock Picker Awards in 2018 Thomson Reuters Analyst Awards.

We’re pleased to announce that CL King analysts Mike Gallo and David Westenberg have been recognized as Top Stock Pickers in the 2018 Thomson Reuters United States Analyst Awards, which were previously known as StarMine awards.

Mike won the #1 Top Stock Picker award for his work in food products, and David Westenberg was the second ranked Top Stock Picker in health care equipment & supplies in the 2018 survey.  The Thomson Reuters Analyst Awards are an objective measurement of the returns of analysts’ buy/sell recommendations, using a portfolio simulation that measures each analyst relative to an industry-based benchmark.

The award recognizes the leading three stock pickers among U.S. sell-side analysts covering each industry group.  Taking the first and second slots for stock selection in their respective industry specialties is, therefore, a meaningful honor for a select few analysts within each industry specialty.  It also means that two of our five analysts have been recognized in this year’s survey, which is a very high percentage of the CL King analyst base and research universe.

We’re proud of the performance of these analysts’ recommendations, as well as the work done by all of our analysts, many of whom have been recognized in previous annual editions of the Thomson Reuters Analyst Awards.  Most important, we hope and trust their work assists our institutional clients in identifying undervalued securities and achieving superior returns.
