Posted September 09, 2018 09:04:11 There are a lot of mid-range stocks on the radar right now.
From tech stocks like Tesla and Google to biotech stocks like Merck and Pfizer, there are a ton of high-quality stocks in the mid- to low-30s that are up for grabs right now, according to data compiled by FactSet.
The most popular mid-price-to-earnings ratios among these stocks are roughly 5.5 and 4.4, according a recent FactSet analysis of market data.
The median price-to to-earning ratio for mid-tier mid-cap stocks is 3.5.
That’s right, it’s worth looking at mid-priced stocks to get a feel for what is hot right now and which are ripe for a breakout.

They hit a record high on August 25, 2018, just as Tesla was gearing up for the IPO of its Model 3 electric car.
The stock then crashed as the company announced its intention to shutter its Gigafactory.
The price-performance metric for Tesla stock is up since then, thanks in part to a recent move by Tesla to raise its stock price by 25% in 2017.
The company now has a market cap of $4.3 billion, and is up $1 billion since then.

That means it is already close to breaking even on the debt-funded investment.2.

Pfizers shares are down almost 10% from their highs, but they are still up more significantly than their peers.
