As investors digest the disappointing end to the week, month and quarter, they may be looking for stocks poised to rally through the end of the year. One way to gauge whether a stock is poised to win is to look at its performance so far: If it’s lost a lot of value since the start of the year but gained in recent weeks, that can be a good sign it’s on its way. bullish and is at a solid buy point. To determine a group of stocks that may have bottomed out, CNBC Pro used data from FactSet to find companies whose shares halved in the first six months of 2022. Of those, CNBC Pro selected stocks that rallied and beat the market usually. by more than 10% during the third quarter and still have a solid lead based on Wall Street’s consensus price target. The result is a basket of seven stocks that may have bottomed out earlier this year and could be poised to go higher in the coming weeks. Of the seven stocks, three are technology names, two are non-cyclical consumer companies, one is a selection of consumer services and one is a financial company. Here is a breakdown of the top stocks that appear to have bottomed out this year. PayPal Payments company PayPal plunged 63% in the first half of the year, but recovered 27% in the third quarter. The consensus price target of analysts covering the company is betting it can rise another 34%. In September, Raymond James upgraded PayPal to outperform the market and raised his price target, seeing a nearly 30% rise in the company’s shares. The firm cited the movement in shares so far this year and said that after some challenging quarters, the company should rise as forecasts pick up. “In our view, PYPL is exactly the kind of stock you want to own on this tape: defensive growth fueled by secular tailwinds, significant FCF generation, clean balance sheet, FY23 estimates biased up, not down, all at a reasonable valuation (5.6% FCF yield),” analyst John Davis wrote. “As such, we recommend that investors start or add positions at current levels.” Netflix Streamers in general have had a rough year, but Netflix is one of the top picks in the space for many Wall Street analysts. This week, analysts at Atlantic Equities upgraded Netflix stock to overweight and raised their price target, seeing the stock jump another 26% on the potential of the streamer’s ad-supported business. Evercore ISI also sees ad-supported subscriber level as adding value: Earlier in September, the company updated Netflix to exceed it as well, saying it could increase by 30%.

Netflix plunged 71% in the first half of the year, but was back up 37% in the third quarter. The consensus analyst price target sees a nearly 4% rise from where the stock is currently trading. Etsy Etsy shares fell more than 66% in the first half of the year, but rebounded 38% in the third quarter, the biggest gain in the basket of shares. The consensus analyst price target estimates the stock may rise another 14% from current levels. In June, JMP Securities said Etsy could rise 54% as it had become a priority destination during the pandemic. Shares of the online retail platform rose after it reported quarterly earnings in July that beat Wall Street expectations. Rounding out the group, tech stocks Ceridian and EPAM Systems fell about 55% in the first half of the year and rallied about 20% and 22% in the third quarter, respectively. Analysts see Ceridian gaining another 26% and EPAM Systems jumping 33%. The names of consumers Royal Caribbean and Bath & Body Works complete the list. While shares of all cruise lines have been volatile during the pandemic and its aftermath, Royal Caribbean has stood out as an industry leader. Analysts see that it will gain almost 40% in the future. Bath & Body Works fell after it cut its earnings outlook, but analysts see the shares rising after its underperformance. Piper Sandler signaled in June that the stock could double after a big drop, and in July, Raymond James said the company was oversold and could surge 70%.
