Institutional Investor recently released its annual ranking of U.S. corporate leaders, ranking Honeywell #1 of more than 60 companies across all categories in the electrical and multi-industry sector. Honeywell Chairman & CEO Dave Cote, Honeywell CFO Dave Anderson and Honeywell Vice President of Investor Relations Elena Doom were all ranked first in this sector for the publication's 2014 All-America Executive Team by both the buy-side and sell-side investment professionals. The rankings place Honeywell at the top of Institutional Investors’ list of Honored Companies with equipment manufacturer Cummins.
Cote is quoted in a recent Institutional Investor article titled Cummins, Honeywell Top 2014 All-America Executive Team, which is focused on this year's awards. Cote explains Honeywell’s plan to expand its presence in emerging markets, where he believes the most growth will occur over the next two decades. The article also details Honeywell’s year-over-year profit increase, rise of earnings-per-share, and impressive stock price increase of 46.1 percent in the past 12 months, to $88.51.
Institutional Investor’s annual ranking of U.S. corporate leaders as seen through the eyes of investment professionals reflects the opinion of more than 1,400 buy-side analysts and money managers at 625 firms that collectively manage an estimated $7.2 trillion in U.S. equities and roughly 1,200 analysts at brokerages and independent investment firms.
