It doesn't matter your age or experience: taking full advantage of the stock market and investing with confidence are common goals for all investors.

Many investors also have a go-to methodology that helps guide their buy and sell decisions. One way to find winning stocks based on your preferred way of investing is to use the Zacks Style Scores, which are indicators that rate stocks based on three widely-followed investing types: value, growth, and momentum.

Why This 1 Growth Stock Should Be On Your Watchlist

Different than value or momentum investors, growth-oriented investors are concerned with a stock's future prospects, and the overall financial health and strength of a company. Thus, they'll want to focus on the Growth Style Score, which analyzes characteristics like projected and historical earnings, sales, and cash flow to find stocks that will see sustainable growth over time.

Keysight (KEYS)

Based in Santa Rosa, CA, Keysight Technologies, Inc. is a provider of electronic design and test instrumentation systems. In 2013, Agilent Technologies announced that it will split into two independent companies. One of the companies was named Keysight Technologies, which became a fully independent electronic measurement company on Nov 1, 2014 and got listed on the New York Stock Exchange on Nov 3, 2014, with ticker symbol KEYS.

KEYS boasts a Growth Style Score of B and VGM Score of B, and holds a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) rating. Its bottom-line is projected to rise 14.9% year-over-year for 2022, while Wall Street anticipates its top line to improve by 7.8%.

Six analysts revised their earnings estimate higher in the last 60 days for fiscal 2022, while the Zacks Consensus Estimate has increased $0.11 to $7.16 per share. KEYS also boasts an average earnings surprise of 8%.

On a historic basis, Keysight has generated cash flow growth of 21.3%, and is expected to report cash flow expansion of 18.7% this year.

With solid fundamentals, a good Zacks Rank, and top-tier Growth and VGM Style Scores, KEYS should be on investors' short lists.
