Many investors are drawn toward stocks with name recognition and high trading volumes. Due to the fact that it is what other investors are participating in. However, available investment opportunities are abundant for investors looking for companies under the radar but still offer impressive returns.

Below are a few companies that offer investors another option than just sticking with the popular companies that consistently have massive amounts of trading. These companies come with little name recognition or the hype surrounding other companies that have seen huge growth from market trends such as generative AI and similar technologies. They are just stocks that have experienced long-term financial stability and growth that have all seen their share price skyrocket this year mostly due to their increase in overall revenue and other similar margins, as well as a much-improved customer base that enables these companies to continue to expand.

Modine Manufacturing (NYSE:MOD), headquartered in Racine, Wisconsin, provides heat transfer equipment primarily for the automotive industry. Its list of products includes air handler units, precision air conditioning units, oil-fired unit heaters, ceiling cassettes, fan walls, condensers, brine coolers, charge air coolers, fan shrouds and battery thermal management products. Modine also supplies products for the agricultural, construction and industrial industries.

The company’s most recent earnings report, released on November 1, stated its total revenue grew by 7% and net income nearly doubled compared to the year before. MOD’s CEO also mentioned the company’s sales dealing with data centers saw a large spike within the same period. That was partly due to its second quarter fiscal year 2024 being more profitable. With much-improved data center sales, Modine Manufacturing raised its guidance for the remainder of the fiscal year 2024 between an additional 6% to 11%.

Year-to-date (YTD), Modine’s stock is up by over 182%, resulting from its improved margins and shift to focus on climate solution technology — reducing overall emissions and improving indoor air quality.

Modine Manufacturing has been performing consistently well throughout this year. It will be interesting to see if this rally continues.
