3 Stocks that Might Surprise You in 2015

Those of you looking to make lucrative stock investments this year may be tempted to keep your gaze fixed squarely on some of the safer prospects in the market.

There are, however, a few stock choices that may hold a few surprises in store for the rest of 2015.

In this article we are going to look at three of the most promising stocks to find out why they might be set to achieve some very surprising and impressive things over the next couple of quarters.

Synergy Pharmaceuticals

Synergy Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: SGYP) may have receded slightly, but the stock almost doubled in the month of June, making Synergy Pharmaceuticals one company that you may want to keep your eye on.

On June 19th we saw Canaccord Genuity increase its Buy rating target for Synergy Pharmaceuticals from $11.00 up to an astounding $19.00.

This recent huge price growth has been largely attributed to the release of positive data surrounding drug studies on constipation and IBS, with the company looking at a very promising $2 billion drug potential in the long term because of this.

New Media Investment Group

New Media Investment Group Inc. (NYSE: NEWM) consists of GateHouse Media and reaches in the region of 14 million people each week through its newspapers and other assorted publications.

The company has decided to give its websites a complete overhaul, making them more compatible for mobile devices and generally enhancing media content and overall functionality.

On 8 June we saw Citigroup set a $37.00 Buy rating target, with New Media Investment Group’s own analysts setting a price target of $33.80.

Frontier Communications

Despite the notoriety surrounding Frontier Communications Inc. (NASDAQ: FTR) as a result of its almost 8% telecom dividend yield, price targets have been valued anywhere from the consensus of $6.85 all the way up to the valuation range of $8.50 – $9.00, as was released by Wells Fargo.

24/7 Wall St. took this Wells Fargo valuation as part of a post-merger analysis to suggest that the aforementioned telecom dividend yield is safe and secure.

  • A. Davidson has raised its rating of Frontier Communications stock to Buy from its previous Neutral rating, accompanied by a price target of $6.50

What’s more, Frontier Communications stock has been raised from a Market Perform rating to Outperform by Raymond Jones, with its own price target set at $6.00, just slightly lower than the consensus target.

Final Words

Although it cannot be said with any certainty what these three stocks will do before year end, it will definitely be interesting to see how they perform given recent developments.

We will certainly be keeping a close eye on them.
