3 Top Off-the-Radar Consumer Stocks for 2017

3 Top Off-the-Radar Consumer Stocks for 2017: Zeltiq Aesthetics, Yelp and LendingTree.

Shares of Zeltiq Aesthetics (ZLTQ) have risen 54% year-to-date, but the body fat-reduction company could see its market cap grow even larger in the coming year, said James Callinan, portfolio manager for the brand new Osterweis Emerging Opportunity Investor Fund (OSTGX). Yelp (YELP) - Get Yelp Inc Report , up 25% year-to-date, also posted impressive quarterly results last month and is another one of Callinan's favorite stocks. Yelp earned $0.22 per share in its third quarter beating Wall Street expectations of $0.03 per share. Revenue increased 30% year-over-year to $186.2 million. Projections were for $182.9 million, according to FactSet. Finally, Callinan is a fan of LendingTree (TREE) - Get LendingTree, Inc. Report , up 12% thus far in 2016. Unlike Zeltiq and Yelp, the Charlotte, N.C.-based company missed estimates last quarter, reporting a profit of $0.80 per share on revenue of $94.6 million compared to Wall Street's consensus forecast of $0.82 per share on revenue of $96.4 million.
