By
A A A

One stock that might be an intriguing choice for investors right now is Golden Star Resources, Ltd. ( GSS ). This is because this security in the gold industry is seeing solid earnings estimate revision activity, and is in great company from a Zacks Industry Rank perspective.

This is important because, often times, a rising tide will lift all boats in an industry, as there can be broad trends taking place in a segment that are boosting securities across the board. This is arguably taking place in the gold industry as it currently has a Zacks Industry Rank of 48 out of more than 250 industries, suggesting it is well-positioned from this perspective, especially when compared to other segments out there.          

Meanwhile, Golden Star Resources is actually looking pretty good on its own too. The firm has seen solid earnings estimate revision activity over the past month, suggesting analysts are becoming a bit more bullish on the firm's prospects in both the short and long term.

In fact, over the past month, current quarter earnings estimates have moved higher to 1 cents from a loss of 2 cents per share, while current year loss estimates have moved down to 4 cents per share from 6 cents. The company currently holds a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold), which is also a favourable signal.

So, if you are looking for a decent pick in a strong industry, consider Golden Star Resources. Not only is its industry currently in the top third, but it is seeing solid estimate revisions as of late, suggesting it could be a very interesting choice for investors seeking a name in this great industry segment.
