Stifel Award-Winning Research

Award-Winning Research

Stifel research focuses on all market caps, but is a leader in small and mid cap research. The department is staffed predominately with industry professionals from outside Wall Street. In fact, many of its analysts have hands-on work experience in the industry that they research. Stifel believes industry experience, its opportunistic approach, and broad market cap coverage drive excess returns and its award-winning franchise.

Stifel Equity Research Teams ranked No. 5 among 156 qualifying firms and earned a total of 15 awards in the 2020 Refinitiv StarMine Analyst Awards. Stifel earned five #1 rankings and has had 14 consecutive top ten finishes.

Stifel has one of the nation’s largest U.S. equity research platforms and a global footprint focusing on 12 major sectors and covering more than 2,000 companies.

Figures are as of 2/8/23 and include Keefe, Bruyette & Woods (KBW), a wholly owned subsidiary of Stifel Financial Corp., and other firms acquired by Stifel. For more information on the Refinitiv StarMine Analyst Awards, please see
