3 Stocks That Have Caught Wall Street’s Eye

  • Stock Market Analysis
  • Editor's Pick
  • US Indexes have done well this year despite a negative backdrop
  • And history suggests their good performance is set to continue
  • With that in mind, here are three stocks that Wall Street loves and you can consider buying

Despite an eventful year marked by Russia's ongoing war with Ukraine, the US debt ceiling issue, and interest rate hikes by the Fed and other central banks, the stock market has performed well so far.

The S&P 500 had a good first quarter, registering its best performance since 2019. Historically, when the index was up at least +5% in the first quarter, it ended the last three quarters of the year in the green. The only exception was 1987.

Since 1985, there have been 15 instances where the Nasdaq 100 took anywhere from 6.8 to 38 months to reach a new 52-week high.

Out of the 14 previous instances (excluding this year) where it took at least six months to reach a new high, the Nasdaq 100 was in the green 12 months later.

These are statistical facts and not guarantees. As Mark Twain said, history often rhymes, it doesn't repeat.

If it does rhyme, investors can profit, and the best way to do that is to invest in businesses known for their solidity on Wall Street. Using InvestingPro tools, we will take a look at three stocks worth considering.

2. Booking Holdings

Following the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the travel industry is gradually recovering. Recent reports from the American Automobile Association indicate that more Americans are expected to travel by plane during Memorial Day weekend compared to pre-pandemic levels in 2019, with a 5.4% increase reaching 3.4 million travelers. Similar trends are observed globally, such as in China, where record travel within the country was recorded during the May holiday.

Furthermore, the World Travel and Tourism Council predicts that global tourism revenues will continue to grow for the third consecutive year in the current fiscal year, leading to a full recovery next year.

Booking Holdings (NASDAQ: BKNG ), a well-established company in the sector with a global presence, stands to gain from this.

The company's upcoming financial results will be announced on August 2. Analysts have revised their earnings per share (EPS) forecasts for the next quarter. Additionally, revenues are expected to rise by approximately 20% in 2023 and 12% in 2024.
