Here is a couple of stocks that might be worth your attention this week. They were selected using a couple of criteria – most of them heavily rely an the company’s fundamentals; the analysts recommendations are only provided as a kind of support for the hand-picked names. This is why I’m calling the approach a consensus strategy. The stocks I’m going to present you below are generally believed to outperform the stock market in the coming months, they have a consensus recommendation of Buy, their fundamentals are scored considerably better than most stocks and their average target price by stock analysts is above current market valuation.

In order to consider buying the stock’s shares, the following criteria need to be satisfied:

  • TheStreet score: A+, A or A-
  • Zacks Rank: 1 (Strong Buy), 2 (Buy) or 3 (Hold)
  • Weiss Ratings recommendation: A or B
  • Yahoo Finance recommendation: at least mixed Buy/Hold
  • Yahoo Finance target price: min. 5% higher than current price
  • Piotroski F-Score: min. 4
  • InvestorsObserver Overall Score: min. 50
Note: Descriptions of those criteria are provided at the end of this post as well as HERE.
