Investors are constantly searching for undervalued, under-followed, and emerging stocks. However, with so many options available, it can be challenging to uncover new information.
Benzinga’s Stock Whisper Index solves this problem by using proprietary data and pattern recognition to identify five stocks each week that warrant attention but aren’t widely discussed.
The index provides editorial commentary to help investors make sense of why these stocks are interesting and whether they should keep an eye on them. Here is a look at the Benzinga Stock Whisper Index for the week of Oct. 27, 2023:
Impinj Inc (PI): The semiconductor stock gained investor interest after surpassing third-quarter financial expectations and providing positive fourth-quarter guidance. Multiple analysts maintained a bullish outlook on the stock, although some lowered their price targets.
ABVC Biopharma Inc (ABVC): This biopharmaceutical company made the list after its shares soared during the week. The surge followed an announcement that they had entered into a term sheet to license the global rights of CNS drugs to AiBtl BioPharma.
First Foundation Inc (FFWM): The investment and financial planning company reported strong third-quarter financial results, with both revenue and earnings per share beating consensus estimates.
Silicom (SILC): Shares of this data infrastructure company declined after reporting third-quarter results. While the company beat revenue and earnings estimates, its weaker fourth-quarter guidance disappointed investors. Silicom expects a return to double-digit growth in fiscal 2025.
Align Technology (ALGN): The owner of clear aligners and the Invisalign brand saw a decrease in shares after reporting third-quarter results that fell short of analysts’ estimates. The company cited lower-than-expected demand and a challenging macro environment as reasons for the results.
