5 Outstanding Buy-Rated Stocks Trading Under $10 With Abundant Upside Potential

Hyliion

This off-the-radar stock holds solid potential for patient investors. Hyliion Holdings Corp. (NYSE: HYLN) designs, develops and sells electrified powertrain solutions for the commercial transportation industry. It also provides battery management systems for hybrid and fully electric vehicle applications.

Hyliion’s corporate goal is to reduce the carbon intensity and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of Class 8 commercial trucks by being a leading provider of electrified powertrain solutions. Leveraging advanced software algorithms and data analytics capabilities, Hyliion offers fleets an easy, efficient system to decrease fuel and operating expenses while seamlessly integrating with their existing fleet operations.

Hyliion’s powertrain solutions are designed to be installed on most major Class 8 commercial trucks, with the goal of transforming the commercial transportation industry’s environmental impact at scale.

Cantor Fitzgerald recently resumed coverage on Hyliion Holdings stock. The firm’s $12 price target compares with the $8 consensus target and a closing price of $6.92 on Friday.

Kosmos Energy

This stock is solid energy exploration and production play and, with oil and gas prices rising, could be an outstanding idea now. Kosmos Energy Ltd. (NYSE: KOS) is a deepwater independent oil and gas exploration and production company, focused along the Atlantic Margins.

The company’s primary assets include production offshore Ghana, Equatorial Guinea and the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, as well as a gas development offshore Mauritania and Senegal. It also maintains a proven basin exploration program.

Kosmos Energy’s focus is on unlocking new hydrocarbon systems and growing and maturing discovered basins through follow-on exploration success, development and production.

Barclays has set a $5.16 target. The consensus target is $3.25, and Kosmos Energy stock closed trading on Friday at $3.39.

Spire Global

This is another stock that cratered earlier this fall and has big-time upside potential for those who can wait for a recovery. Spire Global Inc. (NASDAQ: SPIR) provides space-based data, analytics and space services worldwide. It offers access to datasets and insights about earth, enabling organizations to make decisions. The company collects data relating to aviation, weather, maritime and earth intelligence and gives it to commercial and government organizations.

The company announced earlier this month that it has been included as a subcontractor in an award contract between Harris Miller Miller & Hanson and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The award supports a national campaign of community overflight tests using NASA’s X-59 Quiet SuperSonic Technology research aircraft.

The $10 Baird price target is near the $10.17 consensus target. Shares last traded at $5.10 on Friday.


These are five stocks for aggressive investors looking to get share count leverage on companies that have sizable upside potential. While not suited for all investors, they are not penny stocks with absolutely no track record or liquidity, and major Wall Street firms have research coverage.
