Favorable economic data on retail sales renewed confidence that the U.S. economy continues to do well despite headwinds elsewhere around the world, and investors were pleased to see the U.S. and China discuss their respective currencies as part of their broader trade talks. Some benchmarks rose as much as 2%, but certain individual stocks saw even larger gains. NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA), XPO Logistics (NYSE:XPO), and Infinera (NASDAQ:INFN) were among the top performers. Here’s why they did so well.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Another no-brainer acquisition that would make sense for Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway is satellite radio operator Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI). It’s worth pointing out that Berkshire Hathaway already owns 137.92 million shares of Sirius XM, or about 2.9% of all outstanding shares.

    Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI) and Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) dominate their respective corners of the entertainment industry. As they’ve risen to power over the last decade, they’ve earned fortunes for investors along the way.

    A lot can happen to a stock in just a couple of weeks. There were 275.5 million shares ofSirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI)sold short at the end of January, the largest number of bearish bets placed on the satellite radio provider in more than a year. Two weeks later, short interest fell to 174.7 million shares, a fresh 52-week low in pessimism.

  • [By Money Morning News Team]

    Or look at Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: SIRI). It traded for just $0.70 in 2010. Now it’s worth $5.90 a share, an incredible 778% surge.

Top Cheap Stocks For 2021

In general, semiconductor stocks have had a great year, likely playing a bit of follow the leader given the rally that technology companies have had. Anything that supplies or sells to the electronics/technology industry is certainly in favor, and for investors that are a little late to the party it can be daunting to pull the trigger. It’s only natural to feel like it’s too late, but there are still a few pockets of value to be found. Despite record results, market share gains, and massive organic revenue growth, Microchip Technology (MCHP) has been left behind in this rally to some extent, despite the gains of the past year.

Some investor concerns likely still lie with the companys aggressive acquisition spree, which has totaled near $5B over the past four years, and feelings that those deals might come to bite the firm. Still, large investors don’t see much risk; institutional ownership of the firm is extremely high, and even after factoring in institutional shorts hedging convertible debt, I don’t believe many retail investors own the company, instead focusing on other more well-known semiconductor peers. Concerns over acquisitions appear overblown, and as the spread between non-GAAP and GAAP reported results tighten, the firm is likely to have more room to run. In my opinion, fair value per share is $110, representing roughly 20% upside from current share prices.

    Another no-brainer acquisition that would make sense for Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway is satellite radio operator Sirius XM Holdings (NASDAQ:SIRI). It’s worth pointing out that Berkshire Hathaway already owns 137.92 million shares of Sirius XM, or about 2.9% of all outstanding shares.

    In PMT, Honeywell’s process-solutions rival Emerson Electric (NYSE:EMR) continues to report strong results. But whereas Emerson’s CEO David Farr is expecting to benefit from relatively stronger LNG (liquefied natural gas) spending in the current cycle, Honeywell’s LNG revenue accounts for just 5% of its PMT sales, and it’s more heavily exposed to petrochemical and refining spending.
