Brendan Wood International Investor Conviction Intel – Technology & Media

May 15th, 2024 by TopGun Press

Below are some of the most topical Technology & Media Stocks on the BWI Shareholder Confidence Index based on our daily chats with global investors. If you would like more detailed shareholder conviction intelligence on Global Technology & Media companies, please contact Gordon Peck , Youssef Alshimy or Hazaifa Javed.


Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.
Investor Commitment to Own Alibaba has seen a notable decline the past couple quarters. Investors in the BWI Panel say for a lot of their problems are geopolitical concerns around China. According to investors, Alibaba are not doing anything to help themselves through their reporting and disclosure practices, which according to institutional investors, rank well below sector and peer group averages. Addressing issues related to management turnover, strategic clarity and transparency are what investors are looking for the most.


ASML Holdings NV
ASML’s moat is perceived by institutional investors as world class. There is a heavy reliance on ASML’s products and services by other industry players. Anticipation of continued success and growth, particularly from 2025 onwards, fuels investor optimism in ASML’s outlook.  Institutional investors say ASML’s Strategy, Reporting, CFO, Senior Management, Long-Term Growth and Capital Allocation practices establish it as a frontrunner in the sector. However, investors want to learn and see more from new CEO, Christophe Fouquet.


Intel Corp
Institutional investors have mixed ownership conviction toward Intel. Some believe the company is at the bottom of its cycle, with potential for improvement if they can execute on their outlined strategy and credit CEO, Patrick Gelsinger with making a real effort of delivering. Others express skepticism, citing Intel’s history of cash burn, intense competition from the likes of Nvidia and AMD, and perceived delays in addressing critical issues. Investor confidence in Intel’s growth potential, short and long term, lag behind peer group and sector averages, but improved in the last couple of quarters. Doubts linger about the company’s ability to catch up with rivals like TSMC and navigate challenges with ARM architecture. Non-owners are unconvinced by Intel’s CFO, Strategy, Growth, and Price Appreciation Potential.


Netflix Inc.
Investor commitment to own Netflix is improving. Their confidence in Co-CEOs Ted Sarandos and Greg Peters, Netflix’s disruptor Corporate Strategy and Growth potential remains high. Investors credit the CFO, Spencer Neumann for improving reporting, focusing on projecting revenue rather than just subscriber numbers.
