Builders Firstsource Ranked Among Today’s Top Buys

It was quite a weekend for Richard Branson, who made himself the first passenger on Virgin Galactic’s flight to space as a citizen as opposed to an astronaut. Unfortunately for his company, the stock sold off deeply into double digits as a result of possibly ‘sell the news’ type event, after a massive surge lately. Markets overall were flat to mixed ahead of the start of Q2 earnings season. Expectations are high this time around, with S&P 500 earnings expected to be up 65% from the same quarter a year ago, bouncing off those pandemic lows. With markets teetering around all-time highs, it is time for companies to show us if they have been executing, or if they have been struggling during the great reopening of the economy. The deep learning algorithms at Q.ai have crunched the data to give you a set of Top Buys. Our Artificial Intelligence (“AI”) systems assessed each firm on parameters of Technicals, Growth, Low Volatility Momentum, and Quality Value to find the best Top Buys.
