Consumer – Retailing/Food & Drug Chains: Third

Edouard Aubin leads the Morgan Stanley duo to a third-place debut. “Aubin’s knowledge of the food retail industry is truly impressive,” says one Paris-based money manager. “He has always been able to provide me with all the data I was looking for, in a very prompt manner.” The London-based analysts monitor a dozen companies and have been encouraging clients to invest in small-box discount food retailers; that is, those that operate stores of not more than 10,000 square feet. Small stores have less inventory and thus can adapt more quickly to changes in customer spending habits, he explains. Spain’s Distribuidora Internacional de Alimentación, or Día, has been a team favorite since October 2011. The stock returned a tasty 37.4 percent in 2012, compared with the sector’s loss of 7.5 percent.
