Screen of the Week of Zacks Investment Research:

Buy These Stocks with Upgraded Broker Ratings Right Away

For an individual investor, going through financials for each and every company and then deciding which stocks to buy is not an easy task. Therefore, some expert advice is always helpful. By following broker recommendations, one can easily find investment-worthy stocks.

Brokers have deeper insight into what’s happening in a particular company as they directly communicate with management. They research on the company’s publicly available financial statements and also attend conference calls. At times, they even talk with customers to gauge what they like or dislike about the products and services offered by the company.

Also, brokers have a comprehensive understanding of the overall industry. They understand the company fundamentals and try to place them against the present macroeconomic backdrop to better understand how it may fare as an investment option.

So, after thorough research, brokers decide to rate that particular company’s stock. So, when an analyst upgrades a stock, investors can easily depend on it.

But just relying on brokers’ ratings is not the correct method to build an investment portfolio. One should take into consideration certain other factors as well to ensure robust returns.

And that's what we're screening for today…
