America's Most Honored Companies Awards celebrates the U.S. Companies who ranked at the top of our All America Executive Team ranking for their corporate leadership and investor relations expertise as voted on by the buy- and sell-side analyst community for the 2017 calendar year.
America's Most Honored Companies will be honored and awarded at a dinner and ceremony on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 at the Mandarin Oriental in New York City. We hope you'll join us for a fun night of networking and celebration.
Portfolio managers and sell-side analysts nominated a total of 2,213 U.S. companies in this year's All-America Executive Team rankings. Two hundred seventy companies achieved a first, second or third place ranking for Best CEO, CFO, IR Professional and/or IR Programs. Of those, 191 were named America's Most Honored Companies for achieving two more published positions in the combined (buy-side and sells-side) rankings. Rank order is determined by those with the highest weighted score; first-place positions receive three points, second place receives two, third place receives one. Recently, a new designation for Most Honored Company for Midcap and Most Honored Company for Small Cap has been introduced using the same approach as above, recognizing companies within the $2B-$10 billion market cap for Midcap and less than $2B for Small Cap. The Midcap ranking is based on the highest weighted score achieved within each sector, whereas the small cap ranking is tabulated on a category level rather than sector. This score is determined by weighting each ranked position a company achieved in the combined (buy-side and sell-side) ranking. Each first-place position is worth three points; second place, two; and third place, one. If a tie exists in the weighted score, the winner is then determined by calculating a company’s results from the underlying data. The company with the highest total weighted score from the underlying data received in each of the categories was used as the tie breaker.
