Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly OPEN is a new player to the real estate sales platform space and it promises to be a disruptor. Its platform offers both residential buyers and sellers to transact. What makes it different from its competitors is that they actually purchase inventory, which allows it to not only profit on the fees from both sides, but also to capture arbitrage profits. Several on the management team come from Uber. We would buy this with a stop-loss at $19, looking to achieve at least $38.00 -- over 38% upside. This one has enormous upside potential. Yield 0% (Analysts’ price target is $51.50)

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly This is a bit of a contrarian play. After hitting highs over $550 per share in mid-October, ZM is now trading just above $355 -- over 35% cheaper. Although vaccines are rolling out, it could be that remote meetings may still be necessary until late summer. Other competitors have emerged in the space, but the platform of ZM remains the preference. Current operations have allowed them to accumulate over $700 million in cash over the year. We would buy this with a stop-loss at $250, looking for a return to $435 -- over 20% upside. Yield 0% (Analysts’ price target is $435.00)
