Shares of Fastenal Company (FAST) are up about 1.5% in Thursday's premarket trading session. The stock is looking to recover some of its losses from Wednesday, where it slipped 2% despite beating on earnings per share and revenue expectations.
Several analysts have come to its defense, though. Analysts at Raymond James called Fastenal a strong buy and assigned a $50 price target. This implies upside of roughly 20% over the next 12 months -- not bad.
But even better? Baird's price target of $53, which implies about 26% upside over the next year. This price target goes alongside the analyst's outperform rating. When combined with Fastenal's near-3% dividend yield, the total return for investors over the next 12 months could not only handedly beat the market, but be quite stellar.
What else is going on?
Analysts at Bank of America reiterated their buy rating on Facebook Inc. (FB) , but assigned a $170 price target. The price target "only" implies about 7%, but given the 38% rally so far on the year, an additional 7% would just be icing on the cake, at this point.
Touching on one more component from FANG -- Facebook, Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN) , Netflix (NFLX) and Alphabet (GOOGL) -- is the video-streaming giant. Netflix's international push has got analysts at Morgan Stanley excited, as analyst Benjamin Swinburne sees higher subscriber penetration overseas. While he kept his overweight rating, he boosted his price target to $185 from $175, implying more than 16% upside.Visit here for the latest business headlines.
