Is Maiden (MHLD) Run to $10 Just the Beginning?

Zacks Equity Research

Maiden Holdings, Ltd. (MHLD) just hit a fresh high breaching the psychologically-important $10 per share mark for the first time. This level is also close to the 52 week high for Maiden which has added over 21% in the last 12 weeks, suggesting that decent momentum is present in MHLD.

But after this fresh 52 week high and the positive price momentum, investors have to be wondering if Maiden can continue this march higher or if a pullback is overdue. We think that the answer might lie in the recent earnings estimate revision activity that is taking place in MHLD.

Recent Estimates

According to our research, Maiden has seen pretty positive earnings estimate revision activity lately, which means that analysts are becoming more bullish on the company’s prospects. In fact, 1 estimate has gone higher in the past two months, compared to no downward revision, while the consensus estimate has moved in the right direction as well.

We actually give MHLD a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) based on this information and think that the move higher for this company might have some room left to run. So while trading has certainly been good lately, estimates suggest that there might be more to come and that there is still time to get in on this buy ranked stock for more gains in the near term.
