Some feel that this top company would be an outstanding addition to a networking giant as a takeover candidate. Infinera Corp. (NASDAQ: INFN) provides Intelligent Transport Networks, enabling carriers, cloud operators, governments and enterprises to scale network bandwidth, accelerate service innovation and simplify optical network operations.
Infinera’s portfolio of solutions includes optical transport platforms, converged packet-optical transport platforms, optical line systems, router platforms and a suite of networking and automation software offerings.
In 2020, Infinera and Windstream completed a live network trial that successfully achieved 800G single-wavelength transmission over 730 km across Windstream’s long-haul network between San Diego and Phoenix. The results of the trial mark a major milestone in optical networking by demonstrating that ultra-high-speed optical transmissions, such as 700G and 800G, powered by Infinera’s ICE6 optical engine and Windstream’s high-performance fiber network, can be deployed in real-world network applications over significant distances.
The $10 Goldman Sachs price objective compares to a $9.30 consensus target. Infinera stock last traded on Friday at $5.73. Hitting the Goldman Sachs target would be a 72% or so gain.
This stock is a solid energy exploration and production play, and with oil and gas prices near all-time highs, this 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.
The target price on Kosmos Energy stock at Goldman Sachs is $9.50. The consensus target is lower at $5.20. The stock closed at $8.40 on Friday. Hitting the Goldman Sachs target would be a gain of about 13%.
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.
