One company that should be on your radar is Computer Programs & Systems Inc. (CPSI - Free Report) . The stock of this medical information provider has seen its Zacks Rank surge over the past four weeks, moving from Hold territory to its current position as a Strong Buy.

A key reason for this move has been the positive trend in the earnings estimate revisions picture. For CPSI’s full year estimate, we have seen 10 estimates go higher in the past 30 days, compared to no downward revisions. This trend has helped the consensus estimate to trend higher, going from $3.00 a share a month ago to its current level at $3.30.

This positive shift in estimates has made some investors take notice and buy the stock. In fact, CPSI has seen some pretty solid trading lately, as the company has moved higher by 12.1% in the past month.

If Computer Programs & Systems can keep up this great momentum on the earnings estimate front and continue to impress analysts, we could see more gains ahead for this company, suggesting that you might want to put CPSI on your watch list for the future.

Other top-ranked stocks worth considering in the medical space include Natus Medical Inc. (BABY - Free Report) , Auxilium Pharmaceuticals Inc. , and Omnicell, Inc. (OMCL - Free Report) . While Natus Medical and Auxilium Pharmaceuticals hold a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), Omnicell, Inc. carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
