The transformation also brought opportunities to invest. TipRanks recognizes Wall Street’s 10 best financial sector analysts for capturing the best investment opportunities. These analysts outperformed in their stock picking and earned significant returns from their recommendations.

TipRanks has used its Experts Center tool to identify the top 10 analysts who have a high success rate. To create this list, TipRanks analyzed every recommendation made by financial sector analysts in the past decade. 

The ranking reflects the analysts’ ability to generate returns from their stock recommendations and price targets. TipRanks’ algorithms calculated the average return, statistical significance of each rating, and the analysts’ overall success rate. Further, each rating was measured over one year.
