In the first week of October we saw a really good employment report in September President Trump spent three days in Walter Reed Hospital with a case of COVID-19 and, to his credit, the president has withdrawn from negotiations with House Democrats on New COVID Economic Stimulus Plan It’s Enough to Make Your Head Spin It Also Enough To Send S&P Up 60 Points One Day And Down 60 Points The Next Investors Are Nervous; no one wants to see another economic downfall, no one wants to see the administration crippled by the coronavirus, and whether or not there will be a stimulus package of $ 1.6 trillion or $ 2 trillion, or just $ 400 billion, Wall Street would just like to get a feel for what’s in the cards Looking at everything from Wells Fargo, senior global market strategist Sameer Samana summed it all up when he wrote: “While there are still risks, such as elections and the uncertainty related to COVID-19, we believe investors should continue to remain fully invested and we favor US large and mid caps and the information technology, consumer discretionary, communications services sectors and Health « With Samana’s outlook in mind, we took a closer look at three stocks backed by Wells Fargo Browsing through the tickers in TipRanks’ database, we learned that the company saw at least 70% upside potential in-store for each of them, and all three achieved a ‘Strong Buy’ consensus rating. from the rest of the streetNorthern Oil and Gas (NOG) First, Northern Oil and Gas, a small-cap oil and gas exploration company operating in the Williston Basin of North Dakota and Montana The company’s active games include wells in the formation of Bakken, the region that helped put fracking into national consciousness Northern reserves include 74 billion barrels of recoverable oil and production, at 15 million barrels per day, has increased by 30% over the years Despite strong output growth, low prices and weak demand during the corona crisis dampened 1H20 earnings Profits, however, hover around EPS was only 5 cents in Q1, but jumped to 20 cents in Q2 and expected to reach 38 cents in Q3 Unsurprisingly, these gains come as several states ease COVID restrictions and aggregate consumer demand increasesThomas Hughes, Analyst at Wells Fargo, sees the company’s strong acquisition plan – and membership – as key. “As NOG improved its balance sheet and cost structure, the E&P business moved in the opposite direction, particular within its main pool of interest (Williston) After closing an acquisition of around 300mm in 2019, NOG selectively sought out what it describes as ‘ground game’ opportunities, or plots smaller and smaller in size offering short-term CF increase due to: (1) superior acreage productivity analysis and (2) better understanding of future development plans As of 2Q19, they have totaled> 90mm, and NOG is now looking for more ”Wrote Hughes The analyst concluded:“ As a smaller-cap operator, we believe that the limited beta of NOG relative to the volatility of oil prices in the short term provides strong FCF insurance, while a strong (and improving) balance sheet provides an option to capitalize on a short-term buying marketTo that end, Hughes assigns NOG stocks an overweight rating (ie Buy) with a price target of $ 10 This figure suggests a potential upside of 90% from current levels (To view Hughes’ balance sheet, click here) Wall Street agrees with Hughes on the potential here; Strong Buy analyst consensus rating comes from 5 unanimous positive reviews Stocks are priced at $ 5.30 and have an average price target of $ 14, giving an impressive upside potential of 166% (See analysis of NOG action on TipRanks) Bonanza Creek Energy, Inc (CBIE) Next, Bonanza Creek, another small-cap oil and gas explorer in the North American energy sector This one operating in the Front Range of the Colorado Rockies Bonanza Creek owns active wells in the Wattenberg field, using hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling to extract oil and gas from formations first brought into play in the 1970sIn the second quarter, CBIE saw a 40% sequential drop in revenue, to $ 36 million, and a net loss per EPS of $ 187 At the same time, the stock has managed to retain its value; stocks are now trading at the same level they were before their « crown collapse » in early March The second quarter also saw capital spending at the low end of the forecast scale and debt plummeted to $ 58 million The company plans to pay off this balance by the end of the year This optimistic forecast is based on meeting annual production forecasts – which have been raised to a range of 24 to 25 million barrels of oil equivalent per day For the quarter, sales volume averaged nearly 25,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day At Wells Fargo, analyst Thomas Hughes is impressed with the company’s balance sheet and production opportunities. YE20 and PDP expected net cash balance of debt underlying a valuation above where stocks are trading, we view CBIE as a rare SMID value opportunity that also benefits from low leverage risk … CBIE does not have the scale required to land itself among the ranks of Shale 30 operators, but in our opinion that does not necessarily matter given the clear disconnect of value unleveraged balance sheet provides important dry powder to deal with in a market ripe for distress-related opportunities Until then, untapped development should help stabilize volumes until higher oil prices (we estimate between $ 45 and $ 50 a barrel) justifies the expansion of the company’s Legacy acreage, ”commented HughesHughes’ written opinion supports his overweight (ie Buy) – and his price target of $ 33 suggests a sharp rise of 72% over the next 12 months Overall, CBIE’s Strong Buy analyst consensus rating is based on 4 reviews, or 3 buy and 1 hold The stock sells for $ 19.16, and its average price target of $ 31 implies that it has room for upward growth of 61% ahead of it (See analysis CBIE stock exchange on TipRanks) Devon Energy (DVN) Devon Energy, the latest stock on this Wells Fargo list, is another North American energy game This mid-sized company operates primarily in the New Mexico-Texas-Oklahoma region , with some additional operations in Wyoming At the end of 2019, Devon held over 18 million acres of mineral rights and 10,800 production wells Last year’s net production was 323 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day and reserves totaled 757 million barrels of oil equivalent Oil About two-thirds of that total is liquids, the rest being natural gas Like the other companies above, Devon struggles with low oil and gas prices, declining revenues and low Q2 profits, revenue fell sequentially from $ 2.09 billion to just $ 394 million EPS fell into negative territory with a net loss of 18% per share But there was also good news Devon reported greater operational efficiency at during the quarter, bringing total investment to $ 203 million for the quarter, a savings of 10% Oil production for the quarter exceeded forecast by 3,000 barrels per day, hitting 153,000 barrels But most importantly, the company ended the second quarter with no debt maturities until 2025 and $ 4.7 billion in available liquid assets, including $ 1.7 billion in cash Since the end of the second quarter, Devon has made two moves that bode well for future performance First, Devon closed the sale of its Barnett Shale assets, freeing up $ 320 million in cash at close And second, the company announced it would enter into a ‘merger deal’ between equals ”with competitor WPX Energy Merger is an all-equity deal and will create the largest unconventional oil and gas producer in the United StatesAnalyst Thomas Hughes was impressed with the Devon merger and what this transaction reveals about the overall business plan Referring to the near term “Management expects to generate approximately $ 575 million in annual flow improvements cash flow within 21 years thanks to the initiative already underway in Devon (around $ 300 million) and the synergies from the [WPX merger], ”Hughes wrote Looking to the future, Hughes sees Devon following a cautious with a clear goal in mind « We think the huge portfolio transformation Devon has undergone over the past 5 years has been an impressive look at how a large-cap, diversified oil producer can pivot their focus Recognizing the difficult road Devon has traveled, « New Devon » seeks to further focus its operations on core parts of the US shale by divesting the Canadian Oil Sands and Barnett (also Rockies CO2) assets We see the goal of the « New Devon « is doable with the remaining US Shale assets are above average, anchored by a strong position in Delaware » Analyst noteConsistent with these comments, Hughes gives DVN a rating of overweight (ie Buy) Its Price target of $ 18 indicates potential up 106% year on year In total, the 17 recent reviews on DVN include 14 buys and 3 takes, supporting the Strong Buy analyst consensus Average share price target of 15 USD56 implies a 60% rise from current price of $ 9.75 (See DVN Stock Analysis on TipRanks) To find great ideas for stocks traded at attractive valuations, visit Top Stocks s to buy from TipRanks, a newly launched tool that brings together all information about the shares of TipRanks Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in this article are solely those of the featured analysts The content is intended to be used for informational purposes only It is very important to do your own analysis before making any investment

Corona may have locked us all inside, shut down the economy for almost half the year, and even put President Trump in hospital – but it seems to have overtaken the semi -conductors And for good reason Semiconductor chips are essential to our economy From mobile devices and laptops to wifi and factories, almost everything in our lives runs on solid state chips A look at the numbers will confirm it fifteen largest chipmakers achieved combined revenue of $ 314 billion last year, and the industry as a whole is on track to see $ 468 billion by 2020 The industry is estimated to will sell over 1 trillion units this year With that in mind, we looked at chip stocks with two stocks to consider here and one to avoid Using TipRanks’ stock comparison tool, we’ve lined up the three next to each other to get a feel for what the short term holds for these chip players.Marvell Technology (MRVL) We’ll start with Marvell, whose market capitalization of $ 29 billion makes it a mid-sized company in the semiconductor industry With $ 2.9 billion in total sales last year, the company did not made a top 15 chipmaker list – but it remains a significant player, operating in more than a dozen countries around the world and partnering with big names like Samsung and Nokia Marvell’s partnerships strengthen Marvell’s position the company in the growing 5G-capable chip market Samsung and Nokia are both major handset manufacturers, and Nokia has signed up with Marvell to resolve “5G chip issues” Marvell’s deal with Samsung is important, because the Korean company is one of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world and is now a captive market for MarvellAll of this helps explain why MRVL shares are up 64% year-to-date The company is simply on a tear – and the general economic downturn in 1H20 could not have impacted earnings from Marvell Revenue of $ 693 million, and $ 727 million for Q1 and Q2, in line with previous two quarters Earnings per share increased sequentially from Q1 to Q2, 9 cents to 12 cents , and exceeded forecast by 20% A solid foundation and profitable results brought Marvell to the attention of 5 star analyst Hans Mosesmann who covers Ronseblatt’s title « Marvell has 5nm silicon in its labs today and the performance and density characteristics seem rather favorable… Marvell’s decision makes customers buy up front due to nature of custom ASIC business Marvell also gets the benefit of being able to reuse blocks of building 5nm from non-owner customers for use in other products or market segments, « explained Mosesmann. The analyst concluded, » We see the market opportunity of Marvell, the secular and fundamental changes in the world IT, due to the exponential growth in AI workload requiring more custom ASIC solutions, and the accelerated shift to 5nm support the notion of a 30x Level premium valuation multiple compared to to our current view of the mid-1920s « As a result, Mosesmann awards MRVL a purchase price with a target price of $ 60 This figure implies a potential upside of 38% for the coming year (To consult the Overall, the recent 21 reviews of the MRVL stock break down into 15 buy and 6 take, giving the stock a consensus analyst rating on moderate buy (See the MRVL stock market analysis su r TipRanks) NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) Next, NXP takes us up a notch This company, which has dual headquarters in the Netherlands and Texas, was ranked 14 out of the top 15 semi- drivers in 2019, based on total sales (NXP saw $ 886 billion in revenue last year) As revenues and profits declined due to the corona pandemic and supply and distribution disruptions , Company Remains Profitable Continued Profitability Has Supported Share Price NXPI has recouped over 97% of its stock price losses since fainting in midwinter this year and is now posting a gain of 6 % since the beginning of the yearNXP is in an attractive position Almost half of the company’s business is in the automotive industry, where the chipmaker is a major supplier of circuitry and network processors for battery monitors and radar systems These are technologies integrated into electric cars and autonomous vehicles which, despite their crises and starts, are progressing steadily. Fortunately for NXP, the global auto industry expects electric cars and self-driving cars to gain market share – and adjusts planning accordingly Gary Mobley, 5-star analyst at Wells Fargo, definitely agrees  » Our investment thesis is largely based on a recovery in global automotive production In the longer term, our investment thesis is based on: 1) growth in semiconductor content per automobile, 2) gains in NXPI’s share in the automotive semiconductor market, and 3) the growing need for secure and contactless mobile payments as well as & proximity sensing authentication, « Mobley wrote The analyst concluded, » [We] believe that NXPI is expected to experience disproportionate revenue growth, margin expansion and EPS growth during CY21 Additionally, we believe stocks are attractively valued relative to EB Non-GAAP Standardized IT and BPA « Mobley is impressed enough here to rate NXPI as overweight (ie Buy), and a price target of $ 145 which indicates a 9% rise from current levels (To check out Mobley’s background, click here) NXP Semiconductor is another company with a consensus analyst rating Moderate Buy Stock has 19 recent reviews, including 14 buys and 5 takes (See NXPI stock review on TipRanks) Intel Corporation (INTC) Our latest stock is a big stick in the chip world From 1993 to 2017, Intel was the 1 company in the global semiconductor market, in total sales volume It was overtaken by its Korean rival Samsung for 2017 and 2018, but in 2019 Intel regained its crown, with $ 69 83 billion in total semiconductor sales Projections for 2020, however, show that Samsung once again overtakes Intel, even as Intel’s sales are in passes to reach 72 billion d Intel’s problem stems from its success It originally built its market share by dominating the PC and laptop market for processor chips – a vital niche, which continues to hold back the company’s sales But Markets Are Changing Smartphones and tablets are gnawing at the limits of the computing niche as capacity increases, and large-scale rivals like Nvidia (NVDA) and AMD (AMD) compete directly in the computer processor market. And Intel finds other avenues blocked by mid-tier competitors, like Marvell and NXP above, which have taken leadership positions in smaller but rapidly growing segments of the chip industry.1H20 financial results and market performance reflect the uncertainty of Intel’s market position Revenue remains flat at $ 19 billion to $ 20 billion per quarter, but EPS has been declining since Q4 of last year 1Q20 earnings were $ 1.45 per share, down 46% sequentially; 2Q20 EPS fell 15% to $ 1.22 per share and the stock is currently down 10% so far this year, in trading that has been very volatile Adding more fuel to the fire, the analyst at Northland Gus Richard rates INTC an underperformance (i.e. Sell), and his price target of $ 48 implies a 9% drop from current levels (To view Richard’s record, click here) In his comments, the 5-star analyst paints a grim picture of Intel’s future « INTC expects 2H to be down Y / Y INTC continued to sell to Huawei in 1H despite earlier attempts by US Commercial Services to restrict Huawei’s access to US technology We expect sales to Huawei to drop to zero by the end of the third quarter Intel is also losing shares to AMD and Apple is switching to its own processor in laptops. data does not paint a positive picture for IN TC in 2H and beyond Intel is on the wrong track, ”Richard wrote Overall analyst consensus on Intel is a cautious Hold The action has 32 recent ratings, breaking down to 9 buys, 14 takes and 9 Selling (See Intel Stock Analysis on TipRanks) To get great ideas for chip stocks traded at attractive valuations, visit Top Stocks to Buy from TipRanks, a newly launched tool that brings together all the information about stocks Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in this article are those of the featured analysts only The content is intended to be used for informational purposes only It is very important to do your own analysis before making any investment
