Markos' esteemed Wall Street career included seven years service as a sell-side analyst at Standard & Poor's. Markos held a special role as an idea generator, supporting the portfolios of institutional clients as well as playing a significant role in driving performance within S&P's recommended lists and portfolios. At times, Markos held responsibility for up to 10% of his firm's entire "Strong Buy" recommendation list - and for good reason:
He followed a group of 30-40 Small and Mid-Cap firms and was charged with finding new buy and sell candidates while operating without restriction regarding industry or business sector. He also authored IPO research, wrote for S&P newsletters and edited the work of foreign analysts for one such publication.
Mr. Kaminis generated a 23% average annual return over five years on his "Strong Buy" recommendations, and 26% over three years ended 2004. Mr. Kaminis' excellent performance only improved in the last half year of his tenure at S&P. He was ranked internally as the best "strong buy" stockpicker over the four-year period ended 2004 and second over five years, among a group of approximately 60 domestic and 90 global analysts.
