Attempting to speculate around earnings season can be tricky.
While three-quarters of S&P 500 companies have topped earnings expectations this quarter, dabbling on smaller companies can create a lot of challenges for the retail investor.
Sometimes, it's best to wait and see how a company performed before diving into the stock.
But how do we know which stocks have the most upside following their earnings reports?
To make that determination, I use the Money Morning Stock VQScore™ system.
This proprietary system tells us when to buy, when to sell, and when to hold a stock by combining a blend of a stock's PEG ratio and several proprietary metrics that help us assign a score to every profitable company.
The VQScore ranges from 0 to 4.9. Anything over a 4.0 sits in our "Strong Buy Zone."
One of our top VQScore stocks to buy carries a perfect 4.9 score and still has roughly 100% upside over the next 12 months.
Let's explore how the VQScore works – and how you can double your money in the year ahead.
