My 5 Stock Picks for 2018

This is not a financial advice. It’s just me mumbling about my picks for the next year and writing them down, so that somebody can come and say “yeah, rememba when tesla stock?” and laugh at me.

So without further due..

1. ADVANCED MICRO DEVICES, INC. (AMD)

2016 EOY Price: 11,34$
Current price: 11,38$

AMD’s stock had it’s up and downs during the year and has never really recovered after reaching the highest value (14,55$) in March of 2017. A big lineup of products will be announced in the first half of 2018.

2. PAYPAL HOLDINGS INC (PYPL)

2016 EOY Price: 39,47$
Current price: 78,57$

Massive and stable growth in it’s userbase, volume of transactions and payments seems no end.

3. QUALCOMM INCORPORATED (QCOM)

2016 EOY Price: 62,44$
Current price: 68,91$

Troublesome year caused by lawsuits. QCOM is trying to buy NXP, but at the same time is a target of potential buyout by Broadcom. Either QCOM gets bought or it buys NXP, which is needed by Qualcomm, so QCOM seems to me to be undervalued.

4. KRAFT HEINZ COMPANY (KHC)

2016 EOY Price: 87,32$
Current price: 79,76$

Their last moves show, that they want to diversify their line of products, but not for any stake.

5. TESLA Motors Inc. (TSLA)

2016 EOY Price: 213,69$
Current price: 315.55$

Missing the quarterly targets makes Tesla undervalued in my opinion. TESLA is trying to diversify and to hit niches nobody else is really trying. The best example is their truck – it’s not made for roads, it’s made for cargo transports between hubs.
