The buy side says: “No one has had a better sense of ground-­level happenings in the Irish economy.”


In first place for a third straight year is the 19-­member Davy team captained by Dublin-­based Barry Dixon, 43; in fact, the firm has been No. 1 in Ireland coverage eight times in the past decade. The analysts have “a good grasp of both macro and micro drivers — no one else goes more deeply,” marvels one backer. In January 2010 the team reiterated its outperform rating on longtime favorite Paddy Power, one of the world’s largest gaming companies, telling clients that expansion into Australia and increases in business-to-­business operations in Europe would serve as catalysts for stock upside in 2010. By year-end shares of the Dublin-­based concern had surged 20.9 percent, from €25.39 to €30.70, and trumped Ireland’s broad market by 36.3 percentage points. The analysts “are quick to respond — and always worth listening to,” avows one impressed investor.
