Analysts are bullish on these following companies: Duluth Holdings, Fibrocell Science, Union Bankshares. These companies are relatively strong financially, and have a great outlook in terms of profits and cash flow. Investment in growth companies can benefit your current holdings, whether it be in established tech giants or undiscovered micro-caps. Here, I’ve put together a few companies the market is particularly optimistic towards.
Duluth Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:DLTH)
Duluth Holdings Inc. sells casual wear, workwear, and accessories for men and women under the Duluth Trading brand in the United States. Started in 1989, and now led by CEO Stephanie Pugliese, the company currently employs 1,018 people and with the market cap of USD $593.39M, it falls under the small-cap category.
DLTH’s projected future profit growth is a robust 28.03%, with an underlying 51.75% growth from its revenues expected over the upcoming years. Profit growth, coupled with top-line expansion, is a positive indication. This is because net income isn’t artificially inflated by unsustainable activities such as one-off cost-reductions expected in the future. This prospective profitability should trickle down to shareholders, with analysts expecting the company to generate a positive return on equity of 17.52%. DLTH’s bullish prospects on both the top and bottom lines make it an interesting stock to invest more time to understand how it can add value to your portfolio. Want to know more about DLTH?

Fibrocell Science, Inc., an autologous cell and gene therapy company, focuses on discovering and developing therapies for diseases affecting the skin, connective tissues, and joints in the United States.

FCSC’s projected future profit growth is an exceptional 55.36%, with an underlying triple-digit growth from its revenues expected over the upcoming years. It appears that FCSC’s profitability may be sustainable as the fundamental push is top-line expansion rather than unmaintainable cost-cutting activities. FCSC ticks the boxes for high-growth generation on all levels of line items, which makes it an appealing stock to dig into deeper. Want to know more about FCSC?
