Daqo New Energy (DQ) Shares March Higher, Can It Continue?

Posted Fri Jul 28, 07:51 am ET

by Zacks Equity Research

As of late, it has definitely been a great time to be an investor in Daqo New Energy Corp DQ. The stock has moved higher by 20.4% in the past month, while it is also above its 20 Day SMA too. This combination of strong price performance and favorable technical, could suggest that the stock may be on the right path.

We certainly think that this might be the case, particularly if you consider DQ’s recent earnings estimate revision activity. From this look, the company’s future is quite favorable; as DQ has earned itself a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), meaning that its recent run may continue for a bit longer, and that this isn’t the top for the in-focus company. You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.

Last year, it generated $8 billion in global revenues. By 2020, it's predicted to blast through the roof to $47 billion. Famed investor Mark Cuban says it will produce "the world's first trillionaries," but that should still leave plenty of money for regular investors who make the right trades early.

by Zacks Equity Research

Conn's Inc CONN has been on the move lately as the stock has risen by 24.3% in the past four weeks, and it is currently trading well above its 20-Day SMA. This is a pretty solid move higher, but the question that has to be on investors’ minds right now is; can this trend continue?

While there can be no telling for sure, it is certainly encouraging that earnings estimates have risen in the past few weeks on the company, suggesting that sentiment on CONN is moving in the right direction. In fact, the stock currently has a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), suggesting that the recent run could certainly continue for this in-focus company.  You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.
