Asanko Gold (AKG): An Off-the-Radar Potential Winner


It commonly happens in stock investing that investors miss the chance of buying winning stocks that they knew would stand out. Before they take the plunge, others get to know the hidden potential and enter into these stocks, pushing them out of reach.

So, instead of repenting, spotting the off-the-radar potential winners and immediately investing in them could be a smart decision.

One such company that looks well positioned for a solid gain, but has been overlooked by investors lately, is Asanko Gold Inc. AKG. This Mining – Gold stock has actually seen estimates rise over the past month for the current fiscal year by about 20%. But that is not yet reflected in its price, as the stock lost 12.9% over the same time frame.

You should not be concerned about the price remaining muted going forward. This year’s expected earnings growth over the prior year is significantly high, which should ultimately translate into price appreciation.

And if this isn’t enough, AKG currently carries a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) which further underscores the potential for its outperformance (See the performance of Zacks' portfolios and strategies here: About Zacks Performance).You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank stocks here.
