How Amarin Corporation (AMRN) Stock Stands Out in a Strong Industry - Tale of the Tape

Zacks Equity Research

One stock that might be an intriguing choice for investors right now is Amarin Corporation plc (AMRN). This is because this security in the Medical - Biomed/Genetics space is seeing solid earnings estimate revision activity, and is in great company from a Zacks Industry Rank perspective.

 

This is important because, often times, a rising tide will lift all boats in an industry, as there can be broad trends taking place in a segment that are boosting securities across the board. This is arguably taking place in the Medical - Biomed/Genetics space as it currently has a Zacks Industry Rank of 49 out of more than 250 industries, suggesting it is well-positioned from this perspective, especially when compared to other segments out there.

 

Meanwhile, Amarin Corporation is actually looking pretty good on its own too. The firm has seen solid earnings estimate revision activity over the past month, suggesting analysts are becoming a bit more bullish on the firm’s prospects in both the short and long term.

 

In fact, over the past month, current quarter estimates have narrowed form a loss of 12 cents per share to a loss of 11 cents per share, while current year estimates have narrowed from a loss of 42 cents per share to a loss of 39 cents per share. The company currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold), which is also a favorable signal.

 

So, if you are looking for a decent pick in a strong industry, consider Amarin Corporation. Not only is its industry currently in the top third, but it is seeing solid estimate revisions as of late, suggesting it could be a very interesting choice for investors seeking a name in this great industry segment.
