Bull Of The Day: Disco Corp (DSCSY)

Read MoreHide Full Article

Disco Corp (DSCSY - Free Report) is a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) and it is the Bull of the Day today.  Let's take a look at why this stock has the most coveted Zack Rank.  We will also take a look at why this stock might not be for everyone as it is awfully illiquid.  


Dsico Corporation manufactures and sells precision cutting, grinding and polishing machines primarily in Japan and internationally. Its precision machines include dicing saws, laser saws, grinders, polishers, wafer mounters, die separators, surface planers, and waterjet saws, as well as products for dicing before grinding process and package singulation. The company also manufactures and sells precision diamond abrasive tools; and offers processing services. DISCO Corporation is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.

Style Scores

A quick look at the style scores tells me that this is a stock that I like.  It has a growth style score of "A" and a value style score of "F".  As the aggressive growth stock strategist, this is just what I like to see as it tells me that the value investors are not interested in this stock.  

Earnings History

As an ADR, DSCSY doesn't report in the exact same way that domestic companies report.  With this in mind the earnings history is a section we cannot really cover.

Earnings Estimates

The primary control factor for the Zacks Rank is the movement in earnings estimates.  When estimates move higher, the rank tends to improve.  As shown below, the estimates for DSCSY have been moving higher over the last 30 days.

Not That Liquid

This stock is not very liquid.  That means that it doesn't trade that much and as a result likely has a very large spread between the bid and the ask.  That means that you will end up buying it at the ask and not able to sell it unless you are at the bid and the difference between the two could be substantial.

We can see this is the case because by mid day on September 6, 2017 there was only one trade of approximately 1,300 shares.  This was double the average volume over the last 90 days.
