3 Stocks with Upgraded Broker Ratings for Robust Returns

With near-term recession fears and still high inflation, investors are wary about entering the market. Though the Federal Reserve has paused interest rate hikes, it has hinted at raising the rates further and keeping those at a high level longer to bring down inflation.

Higher rates will likely lead to a recession/economic slowdown in the latter part of 2023 or early 2024. Under such a scenario, it is difficult for individual investors to pick stocks independently and generate solid returns.

One way to choose the right stocks in the current situation is to follow rating upgrades by brokers. In this regard, stocks like Abcam plc, Maxeon Solar Technologies, Ltd. and Allegiant Travel Co. are worth a look.

As brokers directly communicate with the top management, they have a deeper insight into what is happening in a particular company. They accurately evaluate companies’ publicly available documents and even attend conference calls.

Brokers have more understanding of the overall sector and industry. They place company fundamentals against the current economic backdrop to determine how a particular stock will fare as an investment.

Hence, when brokers upgrade a stock, you can rely on their judgment. But solely depending on broker upgrades is not a good way to build your investment portfolio. Several other factors should be taken into consideration to ensure steady returns.

Here are three stocks that qualified for the screening:
