New Trade for October 5th, 2023

While everyone else is scratching their heads and feeling gloomy about the market, opportunistic investors are out there finding those hidden gems – stocks that are like a secret waiting to be uncovered.

Our featured stock for today might not be getting all the love in the stock market right now, but hey, don’t let those share prices fool you. Deep down, this company’s got its act together, strong fundamentals, and a game plan for growth that’s worth looking at. All it needs is that special spark to ignite the investor fireworks, and when that happens, watch out because their stock could surge higher as more focus turns their way.

Opera (OPRA)

Opera has been on a bit of a rollercoaster lately, and not the fun kind. Its stock price has taken a nosedive, dropping over 60% from its peak of $28 to a more modest $11 per share. But, hey, sometimes the best opportunities come when others are running for the hills, right?

Sure, there are some short-term bumps in the road, like the whole macroeconomic headwind thing and a dip in digital advertising spending. But here’s the deal – Opera’s got a solid long-term game plan. They’re shifting their focus to the big leagues, targeting those high-value Western markets. In Q2 2023, they even managed to bump up their average revenue per user by 25% year-over-year to $1.17. Plus, their Western user base is growing, now accounting for 15% of the total user base.

But that’s not all. Opera’s been pulling out the big guns with AI-powered features in its web browsers. This could be a game-changer, especially in developed markets. Ever since they introduced their AI assistant, things have been looking up – more time spent on their browsers, more searches, more engagement, you name it.

And here’s the kicker: Opera’s sitting on a mountain of cash – $98 million, to be exact. No debt. Plus, they even started tossing out dividends in Q2, just to show off their financial muscles.

So, while the advertising world might be going through a rough patch, Opera’s smart moves into Western markets and their AI tech could make them a heavyweight in this colossal industry. And here’s the cherry on top: the stock’s trading at just 2.5-times sales, even with an estimated 15% annual revenue growth on the horizon. The latest insider scoop? Analysts have slapped a one-year price target of $23 per share on OPRA, which means there’s a potential 109% upswing in the cards.
