Stock Score Report Weekly for May 31

We have been keeping a close eye on the screening tool being offered by InvestorsObserver over the last several months, and the screener continues to identify some high-quality stocks with plenty of upside potential.

The main advantage to the Stock Score Report screener is that it combines both technical and fundamental data when calculating a ranking system of the overall stock universe.

Stocks that rank highly when combining both technical and fundamental data have a high likelihood of building on recent gains because they are already in Wall Street’s favor, and have strong enough underlying fundamentals to maintain the market’s faith.

We have found some great stocks over the months, and this week is no exception. Let’s take a closer look at five stocks which are currently dominating the rankings.

Facebook

Social media giant Facebook (FB) has enjoyed a steady presence at the top of the rankings. The stock fell out of favor with Wall Street for a brief stint following its data scandal, but Wall Street quickly returned to the stock as Facebook accepted some responsibility, and has taken steps to better protect its users’ data. FB has recovered close to all of its losses, and is once again just shy of its all-time high. The stock has near perfect technical rankings, and a very high 92 fundamental ranking, yielding it an overall ranking of 96 from InvestorsObserver’s Stock Score Report. FB trades at $187.86 with an average price target of $217.61.

At Home Group

Home goods retailer At Home Group (HOME) has been a fixture at the top of the rankings for months, and with HOME still trading just shy of its all-time high, its long-term technical scores remain near perfect, and with strong fundamentals the stock gets an overall ranking of 91 from InvestorsObserver’s Stock Score Report. The company is expected to grow earnings by 24.8% per annum over the next five years, which should be strong enough to keep Wall Street bullish on the stock. HOME trades at $35.33 with an average price target of $37.13.
