5 Top-Ranked Stocks with Upgraded Broker Ratings to Buy Now

During an earnings season, market sentiments get influenced by corporate results and management commentary. Though earnings performance is a good indicator of a stock’s future performance, identifying primary growth drivers can become daunting.

Further, the current volatile markets and economic slowdown amid the coronavirus pandemic are big near-term concerns. So, it’s not an easy task for individual investors to pick stocks that will be able to generate solid returns.

In such a situation, guidance from experts is highly advisable. For this, you can follow rating upgrades by brokers as they have a deeper understanding of stocks, industries and the overall economy. Also, they communicate with company executives and even attend conference calls.

In addition, brokers comprehensively study the publicly-available company documents and scrutinize fundamentals. They place these against the present economic scenario to check how the stocks would fare as an investment option. Therefore, when a broker upgrades rating for any company, you can easily rely on it.

However, just depending on broker upgrades is not the right way to build your investment portfolio. You should take into consideration certain other factors as well before picking any stock for robust gains.
