The Fourth of July is a great time for a backyard barbeque, but before the family gathers, Dad will want his lawn looking its best. To get the job done like a pro, he’ll need his new Toro Company (TTC) riding mower. Toro is the leading maker of both professional turf and residential yard and snow removal equipment.

S&P just raised its opinion on the stock to a “buy” from a “hold” with a 12-month target of $57. Technically, despite the general market selloff, TTC is above its 200-day moving average and is oversold with a trading target of $55.
