3 Best Stocks with Upgraded Broker Ratings to Invest in Now

You must be thinking that investing in stocks is one of the easiest things to do. But it’s not as easy as it may seem.

For this, one has to understand the fundamentals of a company and place them against the present economic background to figure out how it may fare as an investment. One way to cut this task out is to follow broker recommendation.

Brokers have more insight into what’s happening in a particular company as they directly communicate with management. Further, they have a deeper understanding of the overall industry.

Specifically, brokers research on a company’s publicly available financial statements, listen to conference calls and engage in talks directly with top management. At times, they even talk with customers to gauge what they like or dislike about the products and services offered by the company.

So, after thorough research, brokers decide to rate that particular company’s stock. Naturally, when an analyst upgrades a stock, you can easily rely on it.

However, solely depending on analysts’ upgrades is not the right way to build your investment portfolio. You should also take into consideration other factors to ensure solid returns.

Picking the Winning Strategy

We have a screening strategy that will help in your search for potential winners:

Broker Rating Upgrades (4 weeks) of 1% ore more: The screen selects stocks that have witnessed broker rating upgrades of 1% more over the last four weeks.

Current Price greater than 5: The stocks must be trading above $5.

Average 20-day Volume greater than 100,000: A large trading volume guarantees that the stock is easily tradable.
