New Trade for April 7th, 2021

Stocks were flat this morning after pulling back from record highs late in yesterday’s session. 

We’ll see where today’s session will take us.  Jamie Dimon is optimistic about the U.S. economic recovery, as he expressed in his widely read annual letter, which was released this morning.  

“I have little doubt that with excess savings, new stimulus savings, huge deficit spending, more QE, a new potential infrastructure bill, a successful vaccine and euphoria around the end of the pandemic, the U.S. economy will likely boom,” Dimon said.  “This boom could easily run into 2023 because all the spending could extend well into 2023.”

Cheers Mr. Dimon, we hope you are right.  

Our trade alert for today highlights what the experts are calling one of the hottest investment ideas for 2021. And we’ve got one company to recommend that’s priced just right.  

With driverless technology being one of the hottest investment ideas in the auto market, the best way to tap the AV revolution would be to invest in the core technology that has made self-driving cars a reality.  And that foundational technology is none other than LiDAR — which basically stands for light detection and ranging.

 Luminar’s (LAZR) proprietary software is designed to unlock full lidar capabilities and will  enhance automakers’ ability to deliver high-speed highway autonomy in commercial series production scale. 

The company has landed huge contracts with Daimler AG (DDAIF), Intel Corp’s (INTC) Mobileye unit, Volvo Group and others, which are likely to solidify its standing in the LIDAR market.  Volvo’s vehicles will be equipped with Luminar’s Iris lidar sensors beginning 2022. 

Luminar expects to generate revenues of 15 million in 2020, which is expected to jump to $837 million by 2025.  The company has recorded year-over-year revenue growth (CAGR) of 7.8%. 

Northland Capital Markets analyst Gus Richard upgraded Luminar Technologies from Market Perform to Outperform with  a price target of $41.  The analyst commented, “LAZR will be the entrenched supplier to Mobileye by 2025.”  

The company has leveraged multiple technological breakthrough innovations to develop the industry’s best LiDAR sensors.  InvestorPlace senior Investment Analyst, Luke Lango, recently noted that LAZR stock might have nearly 500% upside potential over the next few years.  Which means now is a good time to consider an investment in LAZR.  

LAZR stock is down nearly 40% from its December high.  The current consensus average price target for the stock is $35.29, which would be a 41% upside from here.  Out of 7 analysts offering recommendations for LAZR, 5 rate the stock a Buy and 2 call it a Hold.  There are no Sell ratings for LAZR stock.
