High-Growth Investments

CrowdStrike Holdings, Inc.

CrowdStrike Holdings, Inc. (CRWD) is on a mission to thwart cyberattacks and data breaches on and off businesses’ networks. The company offers real-time endpoint security, threat intelligence and cloud workload protection. Through its CrowdStrike Falcon platform, it provides 16 modules for next-generation antivirus protection, firewall management, malware search engine and analysis, threat intelligence and threat hunting.

With more folks working remotely and businesses relying on the cloud to connect their employees and make their data/resources available, CrowdStrike’s software is more important than ever. So, it’s not too surprising that it’s seen a surge in customers recently. At the end of the third quarter, CrowdStrike had 8,416 total subscription counts, or an 85% year-over-year increase.

CrowdStrike is scheduled to announce fourth-quarter results on March 16, and analysts are anticipating blowout earnings and sales. For the fourth quarter, the company is expected to report earnings of $0.08 per share on $250.44 million in revenue. That’s up from an earnings per share loss of $0.02 and revenue of $152.11 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Analysts have also increased earnings estimates by a whopping 700% in the past three months, so a quarterly earnings surprise is likely. CRWD is a Moderately Aggressive buy below $244.

Logitech International

Logitech International (LOGI), like CrowdStrike, has benefited from more and more folks working remotely over the past year—and the great news is that trend isn’t going away any time soon. A recent survey by Gartner revealed that 80% of the companies it surveyed will permit at least part-time remote work and 47% will allow full-time remote work. So, home office supplies and communication equipment will remain in strong demand for the foreseeable future.

If you recall, Logitech provides keyboards, mice, iPad and tablet accessories, smartphone accessories, headsets, webcams, home security cameras, smart home devices, video conferencing tools and speakers. So, Logitech stands directly in line to continue benefiting from the work-from-home trend.

Back in January, Logitech revealed that it achieved earnings of $476 million, or $2.45 per share, and revenue of $1.67 billion in its third quarter in fiscal year 2021. That represented 214% year-over-year earnings growth and 85% year-over-year revenue growth. These stunning results inspired the analyst community to increase their outlooks for the fourth quarter.

For the fourth quarter in fiscal year 2021, analysts are looking for earnings of $0.76 per share and revenue of $1.05 billion. That’s up from earnings of $0.42 per share and revenue of $709.25 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. Analysts have upped earnings estimates by 49%, which bodes well for another quarterly earnings surprise. LOGI is a Conservative buy below $117.

Novavax, Inc.

Novavax, Inc. (NVAX), our developer of vaccines for the toughest viruses in the world, announced this week that it plans to file for emergency use authorization (EUA) for its COVID-19 vaccine with the FDA in April. Based on its UK-based trials, the company recently revealed that its vaccine was 89.3% effective in preventing COVID-19. Novavax finished enrolling volunteers for its U.S.-based study this week and expects positive data at the beginning of April. After which, it will file for an EUA.

In the meantime, Novavax will post fourth-quarter results after the stock market closes on Monday, March 1. For the fourth quarter, Novavax is expected to report an earnings per share loss of $1.15, which compares to an earnings per share loss of $1.13 in the same quarter a year ago. Fourth-quarter revenue is forecast to surge 3,846.5% year-over-year to $347.92 million, up from $8.82 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Remember, Novavax is more of a speculative buy as the company is still in the midst of achieving profitability. But the good news is that first-quarter earnings estimates are outstanding: Analysts are expecting earnings of $2.93 per share, or 605.2% annual earnings growth. NVAX is an Aggressive buy below $364.

United Microelectronics Corporation

United Microelectronics Corporation (UMC) shares have pulled back a bit from the all-time highs achieved in early February, and that’s giving us a great opportunity to scoop up shares of this semiconductor company. Based in Taiwan, UMC provides foundry services, developing and manufacturing integrated circuits (ICs), and its wafers are used by every corner of the electronics industry. So, it’s not surprising that UMC’s business is booming.

In the fourth quarter, UMC achieved earnings of $0.16 per ADS, or 166.7% year-over-year earnings growth, and revenue of $1.59 billion. The consensus estimate called for earnings of $0.06 per ADS and revenue of $1.57 billion, so UMC posted a whopping 166.7% earnings surprise and a slight revenue surprise. The company also reported 19.3% annual revenue growth and 200.7% annual revenue growth for fiscal year 2021.

Given the global semiconductor shortage right now, many chip manufacturers like UMC are scrambling to increase production to better keep up with demand. As a result, analysts expect UMC’s earnings and revenue to continue to expand in 2021.

For the first quarter, earnings per ADS are forecast to soar 166.7% year-over-year to $0.08 per share and revenue is expected to grow 19.7% year-over-year to $1.68 billion. Earnings estimates have nearly doubled in the past month, too, so another quarterly earnings surprise is likely. UMC is a Moderately Aggressive buy below $11.

Zoom Video Communications, Inc.

Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (ZM) is making its ninth-straight appearance on the Top 5 Stocks list—and for good reason: The company’s business is zooming!

A recent report by MarketsAndMarkets revealed that the enterprise video market, which includes Zoom, is expected to reach $25.6 billion by 2025. Or, in other words, it’s forecast to rise at a 9.3% compound annual growth rate (CAGR). The report also noted that cloud video solutions are anticipated to accelerate during this timeframe, and that’s great news for Zoom.

Already, the analyst community is expecting the company’s top and bottom lines to more than double for the foreseeable future. Take the fourth quarter, for example. Zoom will announce fourth-quarter results on Monday, March 1, and the consensus estimate calls for earnings to surge 426.7% year-over-year to $0.79 per share. Fourth-quarter revenue is forecast to soar 331.2% year-over-year to $811.77 million.

For fiscal year 2020, Zoom is also expected to achieve 314.5% annual revenue growth and 731.4% annual earnings growth. Analysts have also upped fourth-quarter and full-year earnings estimates over the past three months, so Monday’s earnings release is lining up to be an outstanding one. ZM is a Moderately Aggressive buy below $453.
