Investors certainly have to be happy with American Equity Investment Life Holding Company AEL and its short term performance. After all, the stock has jumped by 8.4% in the past 4 weeks, and it is also above its 20 Day Simple Moving Average as well. This is certainly a good trend, but investors are probably asking themselves, can this positive trend continue for AEL?

While we can never know for sure, it is pretty encouraging that estimates for AEL have moved higher in the past few weeks, meaning that analyst sentiment is moving in the right way. Plus, the stock actually has a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), so the recent move higher for this spotlighted company may definitely continue over the next few weeks.
