Are You a Momentum Investor? This 1 Stock Could Be the Perfect Pick

·2 min read

Taking full advantage of the stock market and investing with confidence are common goals for new and old investors alike.

Achieving those goals is made easier with the Zacks Style Scores, a unique set of guidelines that rates stocks based on popular investing methodologies, namely value, growth, and momentum. The Style Scores can help you narrow down which stocks are better for your portfolio and which ones can beat the market over the long-term.

Is This 1 Momentum Stock a Screaming Buy Right Now?

Different than value or growth investors, momentum-oriented investors live by the saying "the trend is your friend." This investing style is all about taking advantage of upward or downward trends in a stock's price or earnings outlook. Employing factors like one-week price change and the monthly percentage change in earnings estimates, the Momentum Style Score can indicate favorable times to build a position in high-momentum stocks.

Model N (MODN)

San Mateo, CA-based Model N Inc. provides revenue management solutions for life sciences and technology companies including applications for configure, price, quote (CPQ), rebates management and regulatory compliance.

MODN sits at a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), holds a Momentum Style Score of A, and has a VGM Score of B. The stock is up 2.7% and up 7.2% over the past one-week and four-week period, respectively, and Model N has lost 6.3% in the last one-year period as well. Additionally, an average of 147,139.75 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. Two analysts revised their earnings estimate upwards in the last 60 days for fiscal 2022. The Zacks Consensus Estimate has increased $0.13 to $0.70 per share. MODN boasts an average earnings surprise of 80.2%.

With strong earnings growth, a good Zacks Rank, and top-tier Momentum and VGM Style Scores, investors should think about adding MODN to their portfolios.
