    Top 10 US Stocks Recommended by Institutional Brokers to Clients

    NEW YORK, New York, November 5, 2010 -- The following are the top ten US stocks recommended by institutional brokers to their clients for the week, according to the Trade Idea Monitor (the TIM).  The TIM is used by more than 500 institutional brokerage firms to send trade ideas to more than 170 hedge and quant funds and traditional long-only asset managers.

    The decisively bullish tone to this week's trade recommendations has certainly been in step with the combined impact of the elections and the Fed's move to pump in money into the economy, both of which were widely anticipated.  Brokers obviously felt confident enough to advise their institutional clients accordingly.

    About the Trade Idea Monitor (the TIM)

    Institutional brokerage firms use the web-based Trade Idea Monitor to generate commissions through the development and distribution of stock trading ideas to hedge and quant funds and long-term asset managers.  As opposed to traditional sell-side research, stock trading ideas are time sensitive, client specific long/short recommendations. Buy side firms typically pay for ideas based on performance.  More than 70% of ideas from TIM contributors outperform their relevant regional indexes.
