Sharps Compliance (SMED) Looks Good: Stock Moves Up 11.3%


Sharps Compliance Corp. SMED was a big mover last session, as its shares rose over 11% on the day. The move came after the company delivered encouraging second-quarter 2017 results. This continues the recent uptrend for the company as the stock is now up over 12% in the past one-month time frame.

None of the estimates for this stock were revised over the past 30 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate also remained unchanged over the same time frame. Yesterday’s price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Sharps Compliance currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).

Will You Make a Fortune on the Shift to Electric Cars?

Here's another stock idea to consider. Much like petroleum 150 years ago, lithium power may soon shake the world, creating millionaires and reshaping geo-politics. Soon electric vehicles (EVs) may be cheaper than gas guzzlers. Some are already reaching 265 miles on a single charge.

With battery prices plummeting and charging stations set to multiply, one company stands out as the #1 stock to buy according to Zacks research.

It's not the one you think.
