Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly CVS, the 2nd largest pharmacy in the US, recently came under pressure with the announcement of Amazon stepping into the pharmacy space. However, now trading at 11x earnings, CVS is good value here -- especially after announcing they are hiring 15,000 staff in Q4 to likely become a mass vaccine distributor. Recent earnings of $1.66 per share beat expectations of $1.34. Management raised guidance of annual 2020 earnings to $7.35-$7.42 per share, above analyst calls for $7.23. It pays a great dividend, backed by a 33% payout ratio. We would buy this with a stop-loss at $57, looking to achieve over $82 -- over 21% potential. Yield 2.96% (Analysts’ price target is $82.43)

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly BIIB has been on a roller-coaster. When the FDA announced a priority review of a new Alzheimer's drug, it stock soared to $360. When the review failed to approve the drug in the first go-round, the stock plunged to under $250 -- so it goes with drug manufacturers. Its MS drugs continue to do well and it is working on treatments for Parkinson's disease as well. Trading at 8x earnings, it is cheap compared to peers at 30x. We would buy this with a $180 stop-loss looking to achieve $305 -- 26% upside. Yield 0%. (Analysts’ price target is $305.90)

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly Fresh buying by a key investment fund and a re-iterated buy with a $60 price target by another is bringing INTC back into favour. With a PE of only 9x, compared to the sector average of 71x, it is good value now. Another catalyst is the announcement that Dish Network will use their products for their 5G roll out. It pays a good dividend, backed by a 25% payout ratio. We would buy this with a $40 stop-loss, looking to achieve $58 – 24% upside. Yield 2.91% (Analysts’ price target is $57.83)
