Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly IMVT is an emerging biotech company that develops treatment for autoimmune diseases, such as thyroid eye disease. Their products can be disruptive as they offer far less invasive treatments to products on the market today. The company is awaiting approval of its products, so it is not generating revenue currently making this a more speculative recommendation. We would buy this with a stop-loss at $15. This TOP PICK has substantial upside potential, so we will set an initial upside target of $35 (over 55% upside) to assess its further opportunity. Yield 0%. (Analysts’ price target is $44.75)

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly LLNW provides "edge" cloud services that allows internet content providers to operate smoothly and quickly -- much like a highway express lane. Bandwidth demand is skyrocketing due to the pandemic. The company's stock price has recently been hit hard, when it missed projections on EPS and revenue despite record traffic volumes in Q4. Enter the new CEO, who is creating strategies to improve cost efficiency, grow the customer base, and expand service offerings. We would buy this with a stop-loss at $2.25, looking for upside to $6.25 -- over 65% upside. Yield 0%. (Analysts’ price target is $6.25)

It's shot up since its IPO. It's a tech disruptor in the legal sector. A quality name with high growth. They just did a secondary offering of $500 million, perhaps to capitalize on the stock run, perhaps to fund an acquisition. Sadly, he missed the boat here. Lots of growth in this industry.

They just did an offering to prepare for more growth. The stock is getting expensive. Expect a little volatility with tech names like this, but it's a higher grower. He would probably buy this. Well run and in the right industry.

In an unloved sector, but this offers a fine dividend yield with upside. Emera, too. If the TSX moves upward, then FTS will underperform, but if we move sideways, this stock will do relatively well in comparison. Also, very cold weather like now helps these utilities. A boring, but core name. All told, this should return you 8-10%.
