Cummins Leads Institutional Investor's 2014 All-America Executive Team 
Honeywell, Starbucks and Enterprise Products Also Earn High Marks in
Annual Analyst-Perception Survey 
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 12/03/13 --  Cummins, the world's
largest engine maker (as measured by annual sales), captures first
place on the 2014 All-America Executive Team, Institutional
Investor's annual ranking of U.S. corporate leaders as seen through
the eyes of investment professionals. 
Complete survey results can be found here. 
Institutional Investor asked portfolio managers and sell-side
analysts to name the best CEOs, CFOs, and investor-relations
professionals at the U.S. companies they cover, and to evaluate these
companies on their performance in each of eight IR attributes,
including access to senior management, quality and depth of answers
to inquiries, transparency of financial reporting and disclosure, and
so on. 
Only two companies capture first place in every category in their
respective sectors: Columbus, Indiana-based Cummins and Honeywell
International, a commercial and consumer products manufacturer
headquartered in Morristown, New Jersey. 
Cummins earns a higher share of its sector vote, the metric II uses
to break ties when companies achieve the same overall score. 
Seattle's Starbucks Corp. claims third place, followed by Enterprise
Products Partners, a Houston-based operator of natural gas and oil
pipelines, at No. 4. Rounding out the top five is Cognizant
Technology Solutions Corp., a business consulting and
outsourcing-services provider headquartered in Teaneck, New Jersey. 
Survey results reflect the opinions 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 from roughly 1,200
analysts at brokerages and independent investment firms. Votes from
buy- and sell-side participants are tabulated separately.
