Market Has Not Yet Noticed Potential in Range Resources (RRC); Have You?

It commonly happens in stock investing that investors miss the chance of buying winning stocks that they knew would stand out. Before they take the plunge, others get to know the hidden potential and enter into these stocks, pushing them out of reach.

So, instead of repenting, spotting the off-the-radar potential winners and immediately investing in them could be a smart decision.

One such company that looks well positioned for a solid gain, but has been overlooked by investors lately, is Range Resources CorporationRRC . This Oil and Gas - Exploration and Production - United Statesstock has actually seen estimates rise over the past month for the current fiscal year by about 7.3%. But that is not yet reflected in its price, as the stock lost 1.9% over the same time frame.
