Top Wall Street analysts see upside in stocks like AMD & Tesla
Strauss Zelnick is CEO of Take Two Interactive.
The third-quarter earnings season has come with plenty of stunning beats — and a few notable disappointments. Now investors face the daunting question of which companies can carry their successes into the next quarter.
Tesla is a leader in electric vehicle green-tidal waves and continues to be a major player. The video game industry saw tremendous growth during the pandemic. However, can Take-Two Interactive keep making a living from it? FuboTV now bets on the growth of its sportsbook business to increase profits. The shift to cloud services is creating a large demand for cloud infrastructure services and companies such as Calix. But will this firm be able to maintain its relevance in the future? The highly competitive industry of semiconductor developers is fierce, but Advanced Micro Devices appears to be positioned for some very well-designed quarters.
According to TipRanks which monitors the top-performing stock pickers, some of Wall Street’s most successful analysts published bullish hypotheses about these five stocks. Let’s see what they had to say.
Investors continue to be swept away by the green tsunami.(*) (TeslaThe ), has moved forward yet again by inking a $4.2 Billion deal with Hertz, a rental company (TSLAFor 100,000 units, the agreement will be renegotiated. While the agreement is certain to provide Tesla with consistent revenue through 2022, the deal will also help drive mainstream adoption of electric cars in the U.S. HTZZTipRanks Tesla Hedge Fund Trading ActivityDaniel Ives, of Wedbush Securities, explained in his report that Tesla, along with other competitors like General Motors, is leading the charge in domestic EV manufacturing. He also outlined the need for further innovation in electric vehicles.
Ives reiterated the Buy rating on the stock, and $1100 price target for it.
According to the five-star analyst, Tesla’s U.S. sales are facing a backlog that spans several months. While demand was high in Europe and China previously, Tesla has now experienced a multimonth delay. Ives anticipates that supply will increase immediately after the Austin and Berlin gigafactories are activated. The company can produce up to 2 million vehicles annually.
The global shortage of chips has also hampered Tesla’s supply chain. This is what contributed to the long wait for Tesla vehicles.
Ives said that Hertz was the “biggest order of electric vehicles ever made” and it “speaks to what demand will be for the EV transformation in the global auto industry.”
TipRanks ranked Ives No. 1 out of over 7,000 analysts. Ives is 20. This strong performance resulted him in 78% success and an average return of 37.8% per trade.
Take-Two Interactive Software

Over the next three year, nine of its major non-sports games titles will be released. This would significantly increase production from previous two or three titles per annum. If the firm can execute on this level, it would expand growth and fill a gap left by GTA VI (Grand Theft Auto 6, the latest edition of a popular video game), which is not expected to be released until 2026. (See TTWOTipRanks Take-Two News SentimentUerkwitz gave the stock a Buy rating and set a $231 price target.
Take-Two is valued at “reasonable”, according to an analyst. Although it is impossible to predict exactly how the new games will perform, Uerkwitz believes that just the number of titles released could be sufficient to generate short-term and medium-term profits.
Uerkwitz recommends that you buy the stock. He also notes that once the pipeline is in a better perspective, it will be possible to publish a lower price target.

FuboTV Website TrafficAftahi stated that Fubo’s sportsbook should be launched as soon as possible, since the fourth quarter is known for having higher holiday advertising spending. FUBO has announced partnerships with NASCAR and teams in the NBA, NFL, and NHL. There are already hints about the launch. Aftahi hasn’t yet included a potential gaming and sportsbook segment in its valuation projections. This would be a bonus.
Fubo must demonstrate its ability to capture players in an extremely competitive online gambling market once it is launched. This could be a “positive incremental growth catalyst”, driving subscribers numbers through FY2022.
Aftahi pointed out that FuboTV could see a decrease in average revenue per user due to the fact that most subscribers signed up late this quarter. This is due in part to the timing of the football season, although he does not foresee this weighing on Fubo’s average advertising revenue per user, which is expected to improve quarter-over-quarter.
