TOMORROW’S TRADE IDEA, TODAY

The Underdogs

According to UBS (UBS), a handful of stocks are getting hated on by Wall Street, but they could provide an opportunity for investors. 

Despite a 10% S&P 500 gain this year, some large-cap stocks have yet to join in on the growth. UBS strategist Jonathan Golub came out with a list of stocks with improving fundamentals that might be flying under the radar and preparing to soar.

The list is compiled of stocks with below-average analyst ratings, substantial 52-week drawdowns, and proven 3-month earnings momentum.

Home and Auto

Ford Motor (F) made the list. The automaker’s shares have been flat this year. Many analysts give it a “hold” rating, and the analyst consensus upside is around 16%. 

However, Daniel Roeska of Berstein believes shares could climb much higher than that, up to 38%. According to the analyst, Ford is experiencing good profits from core markets and its EV unit holds promise of profits. 

Airbnb (ABNB) also made the list, despite being up over 7% this year. Like Ford, the average analyst rating for the stock is “hold.” Its average price target suggests a 5% upside. Wedbush analyst Scott Devitt believes it’s a good entry point for the stock, as its price fell nearly 10% over the last month following poor first-quarter earnings.

Norwegian Cruise Line

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCLH) was on the list too. Its shares are down 9% this year, and it has an average analyst rating of “hold.” However, its price target suggests around a 26% upside. 

Mizuho disagrees with the consensus, recently upgrading the stock to a “buy.” Mizuho analyst Ben Chaiken thinks the stock has fallen far enough to make its current price point attractive to investors. He also cited the company’s efforts to streamline its business and cut costs as reasons to be bullish. 

For investors looking to go against the grain and find value where others have overlooked it, these stocks could fit the bill.

Which stock do you think will outperform over the next 12 months?
