3 Underfollowed Stocks With Solid Potential

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for next year is only at $2.15, so we’ll see if that takes off after the fourth-quarter report and into 2018. Nevertheless, the estimate has jumped 13.2% in 30 days.

Weibo Corporation (WB - Free Report)

Weibo (WB - Free Report) is sometimes considered to be “China’s Twitter”...but maybe we should start talking about Twitter being “America’s Weibo”. It was recently reported that WB has nearly 400 million active viewers around the globe per month, which is about 50 million more than Twitter. Plus, shares of Weibo have soared 197% so far this year, while its big rival has only gained about 23%.

Weibo has never missed quarterly earnings estimates since going public. It has beaten in 9 consecutive quarters. Most recently in the third quarter report, earnings per share of 51 cents topped the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 46 cents by 10.9%. The past four quarters have contributed to an average beat of 13.4%.

Revenues of $320 million jumped 81% from the year-ago total of $176.9 million. Monthly active users jumped 79 million to 376 million in September 2017, with mobile monthly active users representing 92% of that.

There are only 2 covering analysts of WB in Zacks research right now, which makes this the most underrepresented of today’s three highlighted stocks. These analysts haven’t moved their earnings estimates very much in the past 30 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for this year has gained only 2.4% in that time to $1.71 per share and next year’s forecast has advanced even less.

But the big potential growth can be seen next year, where the Zacks Consensus Estimate currently sits at $2.99 per share. That suggests year-over-year growth of 75%.
