Surging Rank, Surging Stock: Why GAIN Capital Holdings (GCAP) Is a Winner?

Zacks Equity Research

One company that should be on your radar is GAIN Capital Holdings, Inc. (GCAP). The stock of this finance company has seen its Zacks Rank surge over the past four weeks, moving from Hold territory to its current position as a Strong Buy.

A key reason for this move has been the positive trend in the earnings estimate revisions picture. For GCAP’s full year estimate, we have seen 1 estimate go higher in the past 30 days, compared to no downward revision. This trend has helped the consensus estimate to trend higher, going from 94 cents a share a month ago to its current level at $1.00.

This positive shift in estimates has made some investors take notice and buy the stock. In fact, GCAP has seen some pretty solid trading lately, as the company has moved higher by 16.1% in the past month.

If GAIN Capital Holdings can keep up this great momentum on the earnings estimate front and continue to impress analysts, we could see more gains ahead for this company, suggesting that you might want to put GCAP on your watch list for the future.

Other top-ranked stocks worth considering in this space include Investment Technology Group Inc. (ITG), LPL Financial Holdings Inc. (LPLA), and Piper Jaffray Companies (PJC). All these stocks hold a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
