This telecommunications company ruled the cell phone arena until the advent of the smartphone in 2007 and recently re-emerged as a top meme stock. Nokia Corp. (NYSE: NOK) owns two main businesses: 1) Nokia Networks, a network infrastructure equipment supplier to global wireless and wireline operators, and 2) Technologies, its patent/IPR licensing activities.
In a very positive sign for investors this past week, the company restarted its quarterly dividend and initiated a share buyback program after reporting very solid fourth-quarter results, with comparable operating earnings above market estimates as the telecom equipment maker kept costs in check. Nokia also forecasted annual revenue that was largely ahead of projections and set a long-term target for operating margins of at least 14%, replacing its earlier 2023 target of between 11% and 13%.
The $8 Cowen target price is higher than the $7.03 consensus target for Nokia stock. The shares traded at $5.40 on Friday.
Increasing numbers of people are using satellite radio, and this stock is a solid idea for aggressive investors. Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: SIRI) is the world’s largest radio company measured by revenue, and it has approximately 33.1 million subscribers.
The company creates and offers commercial-free music; premier sports talk and live events; comedy; news; exclusive talk and entertainment; and a wide range of Latin music, sports and talk programming. Sirius XM is available in vehicles from every major car company and on smartphones and other connected devices as well as online.
Sirius XM is also a leading provider of connected vehicles services, giving customers access to a suite of safety, security and convenience services, including automatic crash notification, stolen vehicle recovery assistance, enhanced roadside assistance and turn-by-turn navigation.
The Sirius XM stock price target at BofA Securities is $7.50 but may be going higher soon. The consensus target is $7.30, and shares traded on Friday at $6.55.
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.
