Shares of Wolfspeed Inc (NYSE: WOLF) closed more than 10% up after a Goldman Sachs analyst turned bullish on the Durham-based company, which produces specialty semiconductors that are broadly used in electric vehicles.
Wolfspeed shares could climb to $108
Brian Lee now rates Wolfspeed at “buy” and has a price objective of $108 a share that translates to another 50% upside on top of today’s gain.
He sees a significant potential for growth in the NYSE-listed firm and recommends taking a position in the stock at the current discount. The analyst wrote:
While WOLF’s growth story tied to EVs is likely well appreciated given the company’s ongoing investment and backlog growth in this space over the past couple of years, the stock has given back a significant amount of the momentum trade.
Shares have lost more than 40% over the past three months.
More reasons to buy Wolfspeed stock
Lee is particularly impressed by the execution and increasing production capacity that he believes will help Wolfspeed beat revenue and margin expectations. The analyst added:
[We’re] tactically more bullish given the most significant EPS inflection in its history is now a near-to-medium term event, and entry point is more attractive than it’s been in some time with potential for EPS power of greater than $3.0 in FY 2025.
In its latest reported quarter, Wolfspeed said its loss was a bit narrower than analysts’ forecast. Revenue, however, came in shy of Street estimates in its fiscal Q3.
