These are the strong buy stocks that make the most compelling investing opportunities and are definitely worth keeping a close eye on.Using TipRanks powerful stock screener, I set out to pinpoint seven stocks that command the unanimous support of the Street. You can customize the screener settings to match your investment strategy. In this case, I selected filters for stocks of all market cap size with a "strong buy" consensus from analysts and best-performing analysts alike.

This is based on the upside potential from the current share price to the average analyst price target. * 5 Dividend Stocks Perfect for Retirees Now let's delve into these seven top stocks to buy now:Source: Shutterstock Strong Buy Stocks: Exact Sciences (EXAS)Exact Sciences Corporation (NASDAQ:EXAS) has just received five back-to-back buy ratings from the Street. These "buys" flooded in following stellar Q4 earnings results. EXAS delivered a solid Q4 revenue beat and raised its 2019 revenue guidance to $710 million-$730 million, above its prior $700 million estimate. As it prepares to release its Q1 numbers April 30, those numbers still look achievable.Plus the future looks bright for sales for its Cologuard DNA test for colon cancer."EXAS is one of our top picks for 2019, and we reiterate our "buy" rating and our $100 PT," said five-star Canaccord Genuity analyst Mark Massaro. "Exact continues to execute at a high level and isn't afraid to make big investments to hit its ambitious goal of achieving $6 billion of revenue for Cologuard over time."That would give the company over 40% market share for its revolutionary screening product, first launched back in 2014.According to Massaro, even the new revenue guidance is beatable, writing "we see a path to upside to our raised estimates." A similar message comes from Baird's Catherine Ramsey. She writes: "We continue to see the potential for upside… and EXAS remains one of our top ideas."The average analyst price target right now stands at $104.

Essentially, this helps organizations safely manage and share business information.Since the company's inception in 1991, OpenText has deployed around $6 billion capital on acquisitions. Using these acquisitions, OTEX can cement its position as a leader in the EIM space."Our strategy is total growth," said CEO Mark Barrenechea said, "where M&A will continue to be our largest growth driver, augmented with organic growth." So far this strategy appears to be paying off. * 10 S&P 500 Stocks to Weather the Earnings Storm That level of optimism still is on Open Text's side as it prepares its May 1 report report on third-quarter earnings."We believe OpenText is likely to continue to create shareholder value through its acquisition strategy," RBC analyst Paul Treiber said following the encouraging Q2 numbers,Overall, five analysts have published recent bullish calls on the stock. That's with a $46.75 average price target -- 23% upside potential from the current share price. Shares are up 17% year-to-date.

The potential implications of using mRNA as a drug are significant and far-reaching. No less than eight analysts have published recent buy ratings on the stock.Right now the company just reported positive results from an ongoing phase Ib trial. This is for mRNA-1653, an mRNA-based vaccine for the treatment of human metapneumovirus (HMPV) and parainfluenza virus (PIV3)."The interim phase I data announced today support our outlook for this experimental product and support advancing studies in the pediatric population" said Oppenheimer's Leah R Cann.The mRNA-1653 program is one of Moderna's 21 most current and importantly, one of its 13 focus programs.She points out that currently there are no approved vaccines to prevent hMPV or PIV3 infections, and estimates that worldwide mRNA-1653 sales could reach $1.44 billion by 2030. That's with a predicted launch date of 2024.With a $27 price target, Cann sees upside potential of 19% for the coming months. Shares are currently surging more than 45% in 2019.

As the largest TV station operator in the U.S. reaching nearly 39% of households, Nexstar Media Group is a stock worth watching.Analysts certainly seem to think so. Nexstar has received six recent buy calls from the Street. Most notably, Evercore ISI's David Joyce upgraded NXST from "hold" to "buy" back in December. As a result, Nextar Media stock now scores unanimous support.Crucially, the company is on the verge of a fresh acquisition. It has agreed a $6.4 billion deal to buy Tribune's ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC stations. Tribune shareholders recently approved the deal. What's more, to help avoid any anti-trust issues, Nexstar has announced that it would sell 14 stations. * 7 Marijuana Companies: Which Pot Stocks Should You Buy? "We assign Nexstar an Outperform rating and a $112 price target. We believe that the Tribune acquisition should create significant value for shareholders," top RBC Capital analyst Leo Kulp tells investors.He ramped up his price target from $96 to $112 (23% upside potential) adding, "We see limited risk around regulatory approvals…We expect the FCF yield to moderate as the company completes the milestones to closing the deal and de-levers post-closing."

That's thanks to a pretty exceptional earnings report for the Paradise, Nevada-based casino company."BYD's 4Q18 operating results were nothing short of sensational," said five-star Stifel Nicolaus analyst Steven Wieczynski. "As we get late into EPS season, we believe we have seen the best print to date, with BYD's strong 4Q18 results tonight, an exclamation point on a strong 2018, with guidance above expectations serving as the cherry on top."With widespread growth throughout the business, BYD EBITDAR came in at $208.6mm, easily surpassing the estimated $197.1 million. Meanwhile 2019 EBITDAR guidance was established at a healthy $885 million-910 million, the midpoint of which was above Consensus forecasts ahead of the print ($888 million)."Post the strong 4Q18 results and with, we believe BYD is well positioned to continue to show healthy and steady same-store growth, while continuing to integrate its accretive acquisitions from the 2H18," said Deutsche Bank's Carlo Santarelli.That's with a "very compelling" current valuation to boot.
