Newcomer Gregory Badishkanian of Citi shoots straight in to second place. Last October, Badishkanian upgraded Polaris Industries from hold to buy, at $41, on the view that sales at the Medina, Minnesota–based maker of recreational vehicles were improving and its valuation was attractive. The stock had zoomed to $53.33 by late August, gaining 30.1 percent and besting the sector by 10.2 percentage points. Backers say Badishkanian “does good survey work” and “nice ancillary research, using incremental contacts with private companies, marketing experts and travel agent calls.”
