John is a Senior Advisor to DFW, assisting the firm in the development of new investment opportunities in the health services field. John is widely recognized as a leading health services analyst, having earned the most annual number one rankings of any healthcare provider analyst over a 30 year career with several major Wall Street firms.

Congratulations John; the honor is well deserved!

The following article was published by Institutional Investor Magazine on Oct. 13, 2011.

In October 1972, Institutional Investor published “The Best Analysts of the Year,” our inaugural annual ranking of the top U.S. equity researchers as determined by leading money managers and buy-side analysts. Members of this distinguished group, collectively known as the All-America Research Team, hailed from such firms as Burnham & Co.; Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette Securities Corp.; E.F. Hutton & Co.; and Salomon Brothers — to name just a few. Oppenheimer & Co. was the big winner that year, with 13 analysts tapped for the team.

In the decades since a total of 14,934 individuals have appeared on the All-America Research Team. Of that number, only a very select few — 49, or one third of 1 percent — have so dominated their domains that they’ve succeeded in being named the top analysts in their respective sectors at least ten times.

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of this ranking, we proudly introduce the All-America Research Team Hall of Fame, which honors analysts with ten or more first-place appearances on the team; each of the inductees is listed below. Profiles of the first group of Hall of Famers can be accessed by clicking on the name of the inductee.

Some of these individuals continue to produce research that is among the most highly regarded on the Street, some have moved on and found success in corporate America, others have long since retired — but each has earned a place in history for setting a standard for future generations to emulate.

We will be honoring the Hall of Fame inductees at an awards dinner and ceremony on December 14 at The Pierre in New York City.
