Below is an updated look at the most loved stocks in the S&P 500 by analysts. As shown, two stocks in the index have 100% “Buy” ratings — Harris Corp (HRS) and Leucadia (LUK). Analysts can’t get more bullish than that! Both stocks are up nicely since the election as well. The next three most loved stocks, however, are down 6%+ since the election. These three names are Newell Brands (NWL), Broadcom (AVGO), and salesforce.com (CRM), and they all have more than 93% “Buy” ratings. With these names trending lower since the election, are they ripe for downgrades?
Other notable names on the “most loved” list include Amazon.com (AMZN), Alphabet (GOOGL), Facebook (FB), Priceline (PCLN), Visa (V), and Celgene (CELG).
Looking to the least loved stocks, below is a list of the S&P 500 names with the lowest percentage of analyst “Buy” ratings.
