Why Statoil (EQNR) Could Shock the Market Soon

Read MoreHide Full Article

It commonly happens in stock investing that investors miss the chance of buying winning stocks that they knew would stand out. Before they take the plunge, others get to know the hidden potential and enter into these stocks, pushing them out of reach.

So, instead of repenting, spotting the off-the-radar potential winners and immediately investing in them could be a smart decision.

One such company that looks well positioned for a solid gain, but has been overlooked by investors lately, is Statoil ASA (EQNR - Free Report) . This Alternative Energy – Other stock has actually seen estimates rise over the past month for the current year by about 16.7%. But that is not yet reflected in its price, as the stock gained only 0.8% over the same time frame.

You should not be concerned about the price remaining muted going forward. This year’s expected earnings growth over the prior year is 42%, which should ultimately translate into price appreciation.

And if this isn’t enough, EQNR currently carries a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong 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 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 Statoil. Solid estimate revisions and an impressive Zacks Rank suggest that better days may be ahead for EQNR and that now might be an interesting buying opportunity.

Here's another stock idea to consider. Much like petroleum 150 years ago, lithium power may soon shake the world, creating millionaires and reshaping geo-politics. Soon electric vehicles (EVs) may be cheaper than gas guzzlers. Some are already reaching 265 miles on a single charge.

With battery prices plummeting and charging stations set to multiply, one company stands out as the #1 stock to buy according to Zacks research.

It's not the one you think.
