Why Talos Energy (TALO) Might Be a Diamond in the Rough

Read MoreHide Full Article

It can be very difficult to find companies that are both flying under the radar, and still might have potential for gains. Many times, stocks are off investors’ radar screens for a reason, though there are some hidden gems that could be worth uncovering by those with a high risk tolerance.   

One way to find these underappreciated stocks is by looking at companies that haven’t seen their share prices move higher lately, but have observed analysts raising earnings estimates for their stock. This trend could signal that investors haven’t quite embraced the rising estimate story yet, but that the potential for a big move higher is definitely there.

One such company that looks well positioned for a solid gain, but has been overlooked by investors lately, is Talos Energy Inc. (TALO - Free Report) . This Oil and Gas - Exploration and Production - United States stock has actually seen estimates rise over the past month for the current fiscal year by about 60.4%. But that is not yet reflected in its price, as the stock lost 6.1% over the same time frame.

You should not be concerned about the price remaining muted going forward. This year’s significant earnings growth expectation over the prior year should ultimately translate into price appreciation.

And if this isn’t enough, TALO currently carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) which further underscores the potential for its outperformance (See the performance of Zacks' portfolios and strategies here: About Zacks Performance).You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.

So if you are looking for a stock flying under-the-radar that is well-equipped to bounce down the road, make sure to consider Talos Energy. Solid estimate revisions and an impressive Zacks Rank suggest that better days may be ahead for TALO and that now might be an interesting buying opportunity.
