7 "Perfect 10" Stocks to Buy Now

The Standard & Poor's 500-stock index ended April with its best start to a year since 1987, and most of the major stock indexes are either near or at all-time highs. That's great for existing shareholders, but it does make it difficult to find stocks to buy now that aren't priced for perfection.

However, a deep analysis of stocks - that means rooting through analyst activity, headline sentiment and even momentum - can turn up a few stock picks that have meaningful upside.

TipRanks' Smart Score is a newly launched feature that pulls together eight data sets - including the factors mentioned above - to create a rating that unites all of TipRanks' equity insights.

Here are seven "Perfect 10" stocks to buy now, according to the Smart Score system. All seven boast the highest possible score of "10," indicating that these stocks represent compelling investing opportunities at the moment. Read on to discover these stocks and learn why they've earned these high scores.

Data and TipRanks Smart Scores are as of May 3, 2019. Smart Scores are adjusted daily to reflect changes in analyst sentiment, news sentiment and additional data.
