TOMORROW’S TRADE IDEA, TODAY

Greater Expectations

Investors are always looking for stocks with hidden value. 

Goldman Sachs (GS) is on the hunt too. The investment bank has identified some stocks it thinks could have more earnings potential than Wall Street anticipates.

These aren’t stocks that other analysts are bearish or neutral on. They’re stocks that haven’t seen earnings expectations rise high enough, in Goldman’s opinion.

The Qualifications

The firm was specifically looking for equities it expects to increase at least 2% more than current Wall Street projections. These stocks also have a minimum 5% upside based on Goldman’s price target and carry a “buy” rating from the firm.

There were some big names on the list, including Expedia (EXPE), General Motors (GM), and Amazon (AMZN).

Each stock on the list has an upside between 16% and 45% based on Goldman’s price target, with Expedia being the highest.

Breaking down the Data

Zooming in, Amazon’s stock is up more than 15% this year. Most Wall Street analysts have raised their earnings estimates by 16%, but Goldman thinks that number should be 21%. 

General Motors, which is up almost 14% this year, has an average analyst earnings increase of 17%. Goldman has it around 2% higher. 

The biggest discrepancy between earnings estimates belongs to Expedia. Goldman expects the travel company to see earnings increase 12% above the Wall Street consensus. 

If Goldman is correct, these stocks could provide investors with value that the rest of the industry is overlooking.

Which stock do you think will outperform in 2024?
