Growth stock expert Stephen Quickel, editor of US Investment Report, focuses on stocks with low price to earnings growth ratios, known as PEG ratios. Here, he reviews some favorite new buy recommendations.
In the consumer sector, we are re-recommending Comcast (CMCSA) which operates two dominant businesses: Comcast Cable and NBC Universal.
For all its heft (revenues nearing $75 billion), CMCSA is expected to grow earnings by 16% a year.
Polaris Industries (PII), a front-runner in all-terrain vehicles and snowmobiles, is a Buy on its current price dip from $153 to $148, with target of $165-$170.
In the healthcare sector, we’ve restored a Strong Buy rating on Celgene (CELG), which, after a tough spring sinking below its moving averages, is once again showing strength.
Its specialties are cancer and inflammatory disease pharmaceuticals. With consensus earnings growth of 34.5% projected by analysts, its PEG ratio is just 0.54.
In technology, smaller-cap Integrated Device Technologies (IDTI) of San Jose specializes in communications semiconductor solutions.
A recent price dip is a buying opportunity with earnings headed from $0.75 to $1.08 per share in 2015. Our target is $30.
Another Silicon Valley small-cap—Arista Networks (ANET)—is expected to grow earnings by 24% a year.
Already at $82 from its 2014 IPO price of 55, it could reach $95 or more as 2015 earnings jump from $1.54 to $2.41 a share and top $3 in 2016.
We are restoring our previously successful recommendation of New Jersey-based Synchronoss Technologies (SNCR), a provider of software-based cloud and activation services.
Of ten analysts, four call it a Strong Buy, five rate it a Buy, with a mean target price of $58 per share.
