This shaky stock market has lost almost all of its momentum. But if you’re looking for lucrative returns in growthy stocks, you’re still in luck. The market still offers plenty of high-upside stocks to buy – they’re just not all in plain view.

While you can pick up some fundamentally strong stocks at discount levels right now, this approach isn’t entirely without risk. A stock that’s falling won’t necessarily rebound, even if we get a broad-based lift such as a Santa Claus rally; some will just keep on selling off. The question is, then, how can you sort the studs from the duds?

Here, we will look at seven stocks to buy that have significant Wall Street support right now. Each of these companies’ shares have “Strong Buy” analyst consensus ratings, which shows that Wall Street’s top minds broadly agree that these are quality stock picks. Moreover, they boast upside potential of 30% or more, calculated from the current share price to the average analyst price target.
