5 Latest Stock ‘Buy’ Ratings From Tipranks’ Top 15 Analysts

Date: Sunday, May 14, 2017 10:52 AM EDT

In last week’s blog post we covered Daily Insider Transactions (hot stocks from the best corporate insiders); this week we decided to find fresh investing inspiration from the popular Daily Analyst Recommendations tool.

To reveal the most compelling stock opportunities we limited the results to only the top 15 analysts out of all the 4,563 analysts ranked by TipRanks. Using this ranking system, investors can make better, data-based investing decisions by only following analysts with the highest success rate and average return.

Let’s start by selecting the following filters for the recommendation type:


We also chose stocks of all market cap size from all sectors, and ranked the analysts on a 1-year basis against no benchmark. From the stocks pulled up we scanned the list for stocks recommendations by top-15 analysts- which resulted in the following stock selection:

1. Wells Fargo

The No.1 analyst on TipRanks, Gerard Cassidy, has just reiterated his Buy rating on troubled bank Wells Fargo (WFC). His $60 price target represents a 13.16% upside from the current share price of $53.02. While the RBC Capital analyst is bullish on the stock, the analyst consensus rating of Hold reflects the market’s cautious attitude to WFC following last year’s fake-account revelation. Share prices fell on Friday as the estimated number of unauthorized accounts balloons to 3.5 million. Read more about Wells Fargo’s latest scandal update here>>>


2. Upland Software

Canaccord Genuity’s Richard Davis says he would aggressively buy Upland Software (UPLD) on any kind of pullback. The company, which delivers cloud-based work-management software, has an impressive margin trajectory, says Davis. He is predicting 12-month upside potential of 17.6% for the stock, which has a Strong Buy analyst consensus rating on TipRanks.


3. Ichor Holdings
