Why You Need to Pay Attention to CommScope (COMM) Stock?
March 05, 2014
COMM ADTN CCI
One company that should be on your radar is CommScope Holding Company, Inc. ( COMM - Snapshot Report) . The stock of this connectivity and infrastructure solutions 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 COMM’s full year estimate, we have seen 3 estimates go higher in the past 30 days, compared to no downward revision. This trend has helped the consensus estimate to trend higher, going from $1.55 cents a share a month ago to its current level at $1.63.
This positive shift in estimates has made some investors take notice and buy the stock. In fact, COMM has seen some pretty solid trading lately, as the company has moved higher by 35.1% in the past month.
If CommScope 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 COMM on your watch list for the future.
