Brendan Wood International Investor Conviction Intel – TMT

New York, NY, June 6th, 2023 (TopGun Press)

Below are the most in-demand TMT Stocks based on our daily chats with global investors. Below is the link to the Investor Conviction Intel on Microsoft Corp.

Microsoft Corp:
Investors can’t stop talking about AI as Microsoft continues to impress with one of the highest investment quality index scores among the entire market. Microsoft’s management as a whole has been rated by investors as best in class, receiving near-perfect ratings in each management metric. (Click here for the Investor Conviction Intel on Microsoft Corp.)

Nvidia: Is the growth rate implied by consensus realistic? Nvidia’s rally made it a hot topic that raises more questions, but Jensen Huang remains the highest rated CEO in the sector according to investors. Investors cite his vision for the business and his ability to tell the story as what separates him from other CEOs. Perhaps most telling, investors have rated Nvidia the top name among the semiconductor companies with regards to their long-term growth prospects.

Meta Platforms, Inc: Costs are the central talking point for investors on Meta. Investor confidence in Meta’s capital allocation has increased this quarter from last quarter. Investors who viewed Meta Platforms capital allocation as problematic are becoming more confident in it.

BCE, Telus, Rogers, Quebecor, Cogeco: Regulatory concerns continue to abound due to the CRTC’s review internet competition. Conviction levels have been trending downwards for the Telecommunication and Broadcasting/ Cable companies. Investors have discussed the potential ramifications of regulation on all the names as the CRTC is facing scrutiny due to the particularly high prices for consumers in Canada.

Shopify: Tobias Lutke remains one of the most well-respected CEOs in the sector as rated by investors. Investors’ confidence in Shopify’s short-term growth prospects have improved so far in 2Q. Long term growth remains above their peer group and sector averages. Momentum of investor confidence has seen an uptick quarter over quarter. However, investor ratings of Shopify’s capital allocation/balance sheet are facing some pressure.
