4 Top Jefferies Aggressive Growth Stock Picks to Buy Now

With the market seemingly back in a more bullish mode, and for the most part the early earnings numbers looking solid, a fourth-quarter move higher looks like it could be in the cards. Despite the recent rally, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 are still down for the year, and it will take a big move in the markets to just get a year of positive low to middle single-digit gains.

A new research report from Jefferies focuses in on some growth stock calls that are decidedly more aggressive, but that also could have tremendous upside potential. While these are more suitable for accounts with a higher risk profile, they all make good sense for patient growth investors.

Cerner

This is a solid health care sector company that has good upside potential. Cerner Corp. (NASDAQ: CERN) solutions assist clinicians in making care decisions and enable organizations to manage the health of populations. The company also offers an integrated clinical and financial system to help health care organizations manage revenue, as well as a wide range of services to support clients’ clinical, financial and operational needs.

Jefferies surveyed hospitals and found that only about 25% have replaced their electronic health record (EHR) systems. An electronic health record is a digital version of a patient’s paper chart. EHRs are real-time, patient-centered records that make information available instantly and securely to authorized users. The analysts feel that quality vendors like Cerner will continue to take share in these replacements.
