2015 All-America Research Team: Best Stocks to Invest In


Top-ranked analysts tell Institutional Investor which companies they’re urging investors to buy.

A key part of any sell-side analyst’s job is advising clients on how to invest their money — and recent academic research shows that those who appear on the All-America Research Team, Institutional Investor’s exclusive annual ranking of the nation’s leading sell-side equity analysts, make better stock calls than their peers.
