Hot Stocks to Watch For 2018

by | 5 Dec, 2017

Investment publication MarketWatch has collated a selection of top stocks that analysts expect to perform strongly next year. 

In terms of predicted upside potential, the top 10 are:
1. Range Resources Corp. (+59%)
2. Alexion Pharmaceuticals (+50%)
3. Incyte Corp. (+49%)
4. Western Digital Corp. (+44%)
5. Noble Energy Inc. (+35%)
6. Kinder Morgan Inc. Class P (+34%)
7. Allergan PLC (+33%)
8. Anadarko Petroleum Corp. (+29%)
9. EQT Corp. (+29%)
10. Applied Materials Inc. (+28%)

Stocks in the oil and gas sector make up the largest proportion of the overall list, with a smaller section made up of pharma / biotech firms, broadcasters and others. Now that OPEC have agreed to extend production cuts throughout 2018, it is likely that oil prices will go higher and provide a healthy underlying support for those energy companies. 

The forecasts set by analysts compiled in the list last year turned out to be mixed in terms of the amount of correct predictions, but MarketWatch contributor Philip van Doorn insists that, “For one thing, 12 months is not a particularly long time to hold a stock.” 

Indeed, Invstrs should remember that patience is often a virtue in equity market investing!
