And the title insurance firm could rise even more due to its strong earnings. But another likely reason is Big Money lifting the stock.

Big Money Believes in Old Republic International

So, what’s Big Money? Said simply, that’s when a stock goes up in price alongside chunky volumes. It’s indicative of institutions betting on the shares.

Smart money managers are always looking for the next hot stock. And Old Republic International has many fundamental qualities that are attractive.

This sets up well for the stock going forward. But how the shares have been trading points to more upside. As I’ll show you, the Big Money has been consistent in the shares.

You see, fund managers are always looking to bet on the next outlier stocks…the best in class. They spend countless hours sizing up companies, reading reports, speaking to analysts…you name it. When they find a company firing on all cylinders, they pounce in a big way.

That’s why I’ve learned how critical it is to gauge Big Money demand for shares. To show you what I mean, have a look at all the Big Money signals ORI has made the last year.

The last few months have seen Big Money activity, too. Each green bar signals big trading volumes as the stock ramped in price:

In the last year, the stock attracted 15 Big Money buy signals. Generally speaking, recent green bars could mean more upside is ahead.

Now, let’s check out technical action grabbing my attention:

Outperformance is important for leading stocks.

Old Republic International Fundamental Analysis

Next, it’s a good idea to check under the hood. Meaning, I want to make sure the fundamental story is strong too. As you can see, Old Republic International has been growing sales at double-digit rates and earnings at triple-digit rates! Take a look:

  • 1-year sales growth rate (+30.4%)

  • 3-year EPS growth rate (+101.5%)

Marrying great fundamentals with technically superior stocks is a winning recipe over the long-term.

In fact, ORI has been a top-rated stock at my research firm, MAPsignals, for years. That means the stock has buy pressure, strong technicals, and growing fundamentals. We have a ranking process that showcases stocks like this on a weekly basis.

ORI has a lot of qualities that are attracting Big Money. It’s made this list three times since 2017, with its first appearance on 01/02/2018…and gaining 73.1% since. The blue bars below show the times that Old Republic International was a top pick:

It’s been a top stock in the financial sector according to the MAPsignals process. I wouldn’t be surprised if ORI makes additional appearances in the years to come. Let’s tie this all together.

Old Republic International Price Prediction

The Old Republic International rally could have further to go. Big Money buying in the shares is signaling to take notice. Shares could be positioned for further upside, plus ORI pays a nearly 3.4% current dividend. Given the historical gains in share price and strong fundamentals, this stock could be worth a spot in a diversified portfolio.
