BB&T Capital Markets Analysts Named 'Best On The Street' In Wall Street Journal Rankings

RICHMOND, Va., May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Two BB&T Capital Markets equity research analysts have received top honors among their peers for stock recommendations and earnings estimates in the Wall Street Journal annual "Best on the Street" rankings. BB&T congratulates:

Scott Krasik – Apparel, Footwear, and Specialty Retail sector

Heather Jones – Agribusiness/Consumer Foods sector

  • The top analyst in the food and tobacco sector
  • Ranked No. 1 out of 39 industry-specific analysts
  • Also ranked No. 1 in the food industry in the 2009 Forbes.com "Blue Chip Analyst" awards
  • Has been with BB&T Capital Markets since 2001

"We are pleased to once again be recognized for the quality and accuracy of our analysts' work," said Rufus Yates, president of BB&T Capital Markets. "Our disciplined and consistent coverage across the board demonstrates our commitment to providing clients with timely and insightful market advice."

The Wall Street Journal "Best on the Street" survey recognizes the top stock pickers in each industry and identifies which analysts' recommendations generated the best returns. The industry roundup spotlights the achievements of the top analysts in 44 industries, the stocks they recommend now and their predictions. Within each industry, the top three analysts are identified using broker recommendation data sourced from FactSet Estimates. Analysts' skill in selecting stocks is measured using recommendation-performance scores calculated by FactSet on the basis of the estimated total return, including price changes and dividends, of each eligible stock an analyst covered in an industry.
