For momentum investors, upward or downward trends in a stock's price or earnings outlook take precedent, so they'll want to zero in on the Momentum Style Score. This Score can pinpoint good times to build a position in a stock, using factors like one-week price change and the monthly percentage change in earnings estimates.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)
Headquartered in Spring, TX, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company was formed as a result of the split of Hewlett-Packard Company into two separate entities – one focusing on the enterprise-facing hardware and service business and the other focusing on the consumer-facing computer and printer segments.
HPE sits at a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold), holds a Momentum Style Score of A, and has a VGM Score of B. The stock is down 0.1% and up 1.7% over the past one-week and four-week period, respectively, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise has gained 33.8% in the last one-year period as well. Additionally, an average of 10,955,610 shares were traded over the last 20 trading sessions.
Momentum investors don't just pay attention to price changes; positive earnings play a crucial role, too. Seven analysts revised their earnings estimate upwards in the last 60 days for fiscal 2023. The Zacks Consensus Estimate has increased $0.02 to $2.13 per share. HPE boasts an average earnings surprise of 9.6%.
HPE should be on investors' short list because of its impressive earnings fundamentals, a good Zacks Rank, and strong Momentum and VGM Style Scores.
