After reporting another expectations-beating quarter of revenue and earnings growth along with raised guidance (causing its share price to surge over 20% in just two months since my initial buy call on the company), Applied Materials (AMAT) still offers investors considerable value.
Shares of Rogers Corp. (NYSE:ROG) gained 19.9% in April 2017, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence.
The company reported first-quarter results on April 26, sending share prices nearly 12% higher the next day. Rogers saw 27% year-over-year sales growth and 79% higher earnings, leaving analyst estimates far behind in both cases.
