Latest Top Picks

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly GE has floundered for the past several years, but new initiatives are beginning to change analyst outlooks. The company recently announced its plan to abandon new-build coal-fired plants in favour of renewables and natural gas projects, including wind powered offshore windfarms. Goldman Sachs recently resumed coverage, looking to a $10 target – more than 35% upside. We would trade this with a $6.00 stop-loss. Yield 0.55%. (Analysts’ price target is $9.17)
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly HOG is showing technical breakout signs, which we see testing $36 – over 27% upside. The new Chairman, Jochen Zeitz (who tripled Puma’s share price over a three year turnaround) has slimmed down the product line, and shaved $100 million from annual costs. The urge to return to open roads due to the pandemic is expected to boost sales when new models arrive in 2021. We would trade this with a stop-loss of $23. Yield 0.28%. (Analysts’ price target is $31.73)
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly JBHT recently released results, which resulted in a retracement in the rapid rise in the share price it had enjoyed in since end-September. The shipping company is benefitting from the e-commerce sales rebound, but the company has been temporarily impacted by a shortage of drivers and rising wage costs. Metrics on shipping were all supportive in the lasted earnings. We would trade this with a $110 stop-loss, looking to retract back up to recent highs of $142 – 15% upside. Yield 0.87%. (Analysts’ price target is $141.09)
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly As auto sales are beginning to recover from the effects of pandemic lockdowns, we see GM emerging as a TOP PICK. Signs are showing demand growth in China already -- up 12% during the past three months -- marking the first growth in the region since 2018. In the US, sales topped 665,000 units last quarter, a sharp beat of analyst expectations. Record low loan interest rates are expected to help as well. GM is the most aggressive in EV model plans, which should give them an added edge over the competition. Trading at only 7 times next years earnings, it is good value. We would buy this with a stop-loss at $28, looking to meet analyst expectations over $40. Yield 0%. (Analysts’ price target is $40.75)
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly JPM just reported earnings and the 3% drop in revenue from a year ago, but revenues were $1 billion higher than expected at $29 billion. Investment bank revenues were up 21% over the year thanks to a strong trading segment. EPS was reported at $2.92, beating consensus by $0.73. The company managed to post $611 million in credit-reserves, when the market expected $1.5 billion. It pays a good dividend (backed by a 47% payout ratio) and is likely poised to increase it again soon, when allowed. We would trade this with a stop-loss at $92. Yield 3.59% (Analysts’ price target is $115.90)
