graph of stocks

There are 10 S&P 500 stocks expected to outperform the market in the next 12 months. The following chart, produced by Investor's Business Daily (IBD) in collaboration with FactSet and S&P Global Market Intelligence, highlights these leading companies.

List of 10 stocks likely to outperform

Each of these companies has the highest percentage of buy ratings according to FactSet, with 92% or more of all analysts rating them as a buy. The three most notable companies, each with a 95% buy rating, are, Delta Air Lines, and Microsoft. Year to date, Amazon has gained over 21.5%, Delta 21.3%, and Microsoft 20.1%, each outperforming major indexes. Despite these impressive gains, analysts predict Amazon, Delta, and Microsoft could see additional increases of 19.4%, 23.7%, and 10.5% respectively over the next 12 months. 

Another notable company on the list is Schlumberger, which is projected to see a 54.7% increase in the next twelve months. Schlumberger is a leading global provider of technology and services to the energy industry, specializing in reservoir characterization, drilling, production, and processing. Operating in over 120 countries, the company helps customers optimize resource recovery and efficiency throughout the oil and gas lifecycle. The company has experienced moderate declines year to date, but analysts remain confident with their buy rating. The overwhelmingly positive outlook by analysts is encouraging, prompting investors to explore the stock's fundamentals further. While top analysts' projections offer valuable guidance for investors in deciding where to allocate their funds, they should not be viewed as the sole determinant of a company's performance potential.
