You can see the average analyst price target and in green the upside percentage from the current share price. This represents a crucial indicator of the stock’s price potential over the next 12 months. To delve deeper simply click on the ticker.

Let’s take a closer look now:


Over the last five days, semiconductor hot stock Micron (Nasdaq:MU) has received a whopping 13 buy ratings and just 2 hold ratings. Analysts believe (on average) that Micron has big upside potential of 30% from the current share price. This would take MU from $44.12 all the way to $57.65. Bear in mind, MU has already doubled year-to-date.

Five-star Rajvindra Gill assigned a buy rating to MU with a very confident $76 price target on December 20 (72% upside). He wonders why the market is undervaluing MU and sees big potential for the stock in 1) 3D NAND transition, which generates a significant cost advantage (30%-35%), and 2) technology limitations in DRAM supply growth.

“We believe investors are focusing too heavily on a NAND pricing decline to see the big picture. With another record quarter and guide (beat revenue and EPS consensus by 5.6% and 11.4%, respectively) in the bag, Micron is on track to generate quarterly EPS of nearly $2.50 or roughly $10 per share of annualized earnings” says Gill.

Note that this analyst is worth following. He is ranked #43 out of over 4,700 analysts tracked by TipRanks.
