The 10 Most Active Stocks Of 2023 – What Are The Biggest Movers This Year?

Published

on

Key Takeaways

  • The most actively traded stocks either have large trading volumes or price volumes.
  • The list usually includes large-cap stocks, though small-cap stocks can appear with the right innovative product offering or news is released.
  • Keep in mind that high trading volumes do not always result in gains.

Some investors evaluate the most active stocks list for investment ideas. These stocks are the most liquid, meaning you can easily and quickly buy or sell shares.

Moving into 2023, many investors are looking for new ideas to help them grow their wealth after the markets realized a loss in 2022. Here is a look at the stocks that could dominate the most active list this year.

Defining Actively Traded Stocks

All the major markets keep a list of the most traded stocks daily regarding the volume of shares traded and the highest dollar volume. These stocks are at the top of the daily lists most of the time since they are large companies attracting investments from retail and institutional investors.

Sometimes, you may find a small-cap stock leading the most active list, which is usually due to new information changing the stock’s valuation. This results in many investors trading the stock, putting it high on the list. Once the stock is priced more accurately, the increase in trading volume subsides, and it falls off the list.

Let’s look at the companies that tend to make up the most actively traded stocks and their outlook for 2023.

Tesla

MORE FOR YOU

Tesla’s stock declined in 2022 after years of high valuations. The company is considered an automotive and technology company. However, many investors lean towards the automotive classification since most of Tesla’s value comes from its ability to deliver finished products.

Wall Street analysts expect to see deliveries grow by as much as 40% in 2023, which could be too aggressive considering economic factors and Elon Musk’s recent antics on Twitter.

Apple

Apple is undergoing a stock price depreciation as investors sell their shares in bulk. Various economic forces are putting pressure on Apple’s ability to sell its products at high prices and in large quantities.

The inflationary environment has caused consumers to reel in their spending, resulting in falling sales for the iPhone. Investors are turning away from tech companies as investment options and turning to other industries instead.

As a result, 2023 might be a bumpy year for Apple’s stock price.

Amazon

Amazon lost about 30% of its stock value during the last three months of 2022, but its price leveled off to the mid $80 range for the last couple of weeks of the year.

The stock reached as high as $170 per share in 2022, then lost about 50% of its share price. Part of this was due to the loss of confidence in the technology sector and inflation, resulting in people buying fewer products.

However, Amazon’s current stock value may have found its normal value and might slowly rebound over time.

Nio

Nio is a Chinese electric car manufacturer with plans to expand its operations into the U.S. by 2025. Its current lineup of cars is aimed at the luxury market, and it has the potential to give Tesla a run for its money performance-wise.

The company’s stock price is increasing and could be a breakout stock in 2023. Its current price may create a nice return on investment if the company can deliver on its promise of desirable and reliable luxury EVs.

Advanced Micro Devices

Advanced Micro Devices, or AMD, will likely have a bad first half of 2023 due to excess inventory and slowing sales. The company is regarded as one of the best manufacturers of high-performance computer products. Its Ryzen CPUs and Radeon RX GPUs were in high demand during the pandemic.

However, the collapse of the cryptocurrency mining industry, high prices, and economic slowdown have caused buyers to hold off on buying new GPUs.

Nevertheless, AMD is still a contender. Its products are desirable, so it should emerge from the inventory backlog without significant issues.

NVIDIA

NVIDIA faces similar issues to AMD in that the inventory backlog of its GPUs is growing as sales slow. Its gaming division lost 51% of its revenue year-over-year from the third quarter of 2021 to 2022, and investors responded by selling off the stock in large quantities.

However, NVIDIA sees positive results from its automotive division, and it is entering the cloud computing industry with its GPU and CPU server processors. Its Grace server processors are reported to be more powerful while using less energy and could beat the performance of Intel’s CPU server processors.

Meta

Meta, the umbrella name for Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and the virtual reality universe of the same name, is facing an uncertain 2023. Mark Zuckerberg is doubling down on his investment in virtual reality by spending cash on talent and labor to make his project a reality.

Meanwhile, Facebook has suffered from a loss of advertising revenue, and TikTok is challenging Instagram. It remains to be seen if Meta will recover and focus on competing with its rivals or if Zuckerberg will continue to focus on his virtual reality project at the cost of other operations.

Carnival Corporation

The pandemic adversely impacted Carnival Corporation’s cruise operations, and the company is finding recovery difficult. At issue is the core nature of cruises, which is to house thousands of people together on one cruise ship. These conditions make it easy for a virus to spread.

Even though the coronavirus is becoming less severe, people are still reluctant to voluntarily put themselves at risk of illness. Carnival is showing signs of recovery, but its stock likely will see little growth in 2023.

Plug Power

Plug Power is a hydrogen fuel cell manufacturer delivering its product to the market and boasts an impressive list of corporate customers. It manufactures fuel cell systems for forklifts, delivery vans, and truck fleets. Plus, it supplies hydrogen to its customers.

Using hydrogen as an alternative fuel source is finally becoming a reality in terms of daily use, and Plug Power is showing that retrofitting existing equipment to run on the fuel without a significant effort is possible.

The company’s stock is poised for solid gains in 2023 if it keeps up with its hydrogen fuel cell equipment deliveries.

Ford

Ford is another company whose stock took a beating in 2022 due to a slowdown in vehicle sales. Historically, its stock price has been low even though it’s a major global auto manufacturer, and its EV lineup has generated a lot of excitement among car buyers.

The company’s outlook for 2023 is uncertain because supply chain issues are easing, more vehicles are reaching dealership lots, the average vehicle price is still high, and the cost to borrow money has significantly increased.

Furthermore, consumers are more reluctant to take on a large debt when their income is uncertain, which could put downward pressure on Ford’s stock in 2023.

Bottom Line

If a stock shows up on the most active list, it does not mean it will increase in value. It could have large daily trading volumes because many mutual or exchange-traded funds own it and thus are traded frequently. A stock on the list could also lose value.

The Future Of Economic And Workforce Development

Published

on

Our economic attention currently is fixed on national policy, with growing risks from a debt limit deadlock and debates over inflation versus recession. But economic prosperity also depends on state, regional, and local policy, and now there’s a free guide to some of the best thinking in the field in the newest edition of the Economic Development Quarterly (EDQ).

EDQ is a leading journal overseen by the W.E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research. It brings together practitioners and scholars through “supporting evidence-based economic development and workforce development policy, programs, and practice in the United States.” (I’m a member of the editorial board, and also a contributor to this new issue.).

The new issue asked experts associated with the journal “what are the key research and policy questions facing economic development and workforce development today?” In order to reach a broad audience, including policy makers, academics, journalists, and the public, the issue is free for a limited time.

There are 15 articles in the issue, and their range and excellence make it impossible to summarize them. Some focus on companies and firms, including how entrepreneurs can be included in economic development, what policies and programs are most effective in supporting businesses and job creation. Other analyze how public economic development and workforce professionals in the field can be most effective in our complex and tangled systems.

Several articles examine changing workforce dynamics. How can policy engage with macro trends like globalization, high housing costs, and changes in commuting and working from home? Can greater inclusion for the workforce be part of an effective economic development strategy? What would economic development look like if it paid more attention to environmental, racial equity, and family and household issues?

MORE FOR YOU

My contribution draws on my new book, Unequal Cities: Overcoming Anti-Urban Bias to Reduce Inequality in the United States. The book outlines how America depends on cities for innovation, growth, and productivity, but also how our political systems—regional, state, and national—are biased against cities.

That pervasive bias holds down both regional and national productivity and growth. And it perpetuates racially stratified inequality in jobs, economic growth, housing, and education.

Wealthy (and predominantly white) suburbs capture the lion’s share of urban economic growth while not paying their fair share of the costs. That ongoing and structural racial bias is perpetuated over time by our public policies and fragmented metropolitan governments. This in turn makes it very hard for cities to address these problems on their own.

I argue that hyper-mathematized models in urban economics divert energy from more empirical engagement on our economic and workforce problems. We need multi-disciplinary analysis of policy, with special attention to how seemingly neutral policies generate racial and other forms of inequality. And we must recognize how our metropolitan fragmentation and segregation hold back shared economic prosperity.

Although there’s a wide range of policy viewpoints in the EDQ issue, all of the authors use research and analysis to help improve the places where we live. That distinguishes this work from much of mainstream urban economics, which is skeptical of place-based policies. Standard urban economics favors individually-based approaches emphasizing education and skills, and encouraging mobility by companies and people.

Of course, education and skill development are essential components of sound policy, and several of the EDQ articles suggest how to improve it. But in the real economy, experts like those at the Economic Policy Institute show our policy bias towards individualized and company-focused approaches hasn’t led to shared prosperity.

Instead, as watchdog analysts like Good Jobs First point out, we far too often see wasted tax subsidies going to firms that don’t need them, without good jobs and other benefits that were promised in return for the tax breaks. Public education mirrors the unequal fragmentation of regional governments, with suburbs creating better education from their higher property tax bases and wealth while core cities struggle to generate adequate educational funding.

So if you’re interested in economic and workforce development, national and regional and city prosperity, and how equity and growth can be combined in public policy, get your free issue of Economic Development Quarterly. I’m proud to be in such distinguished company, and there’s a lot to learn from them.

What To Expect From Altria’s Q4?

Published

on

Altria (NYSE: MO) is scheduled to report its Q4 2022 results on Thursday, January 26. We expect MO stock to see little movement, with its revenue and earnings aligning with the street expectations. Although the company should continue to see a decline in cigarette volume, given the declining market and higher inflation, pricing growth will likely help offset the revenue loss from volume. While we expect little movement in MO stock based on its Q4 results, it has more room for growth from a valuation perspective, as discussed below. Our interactive dashboard analysis of Altria Earnings Preview has additional details.

(1) Revenues expected to align with the consensus estimates

  • Trefis estimates Altria’s Q4 2022 revenues to be around $5.2 billion, reflecting a low single-digit y-o-y rise and in line with the $5.2 billion consensus estimate.
  • Altria sells its tobacco products in the U.S. Revenue is generated from selling cigarettes, oral tobacco, and smokeless products.
  • While the company is expected to see continued pricing growth, lower volume/mix will likely weigh on its top-line growth.
  • Looking at Q3 2022, the company reported net revenue of $5.4 billion, marking a 2% decline over the prior-year quarter.
  • The decline in revenue can be attributed to lower cigarette volume (down 9%) and the sale of its wine business in October 2021.
  • Our dashboard on Altria Revenues has details on the company’s segments.

(2) EPS likely to be in line with the consensus estimates

  • Altria’s Q4 2022 adjusted earnings per share (EPS) is expected to be $1.17 per Trefis analysis, aligning with the consensus estimate. This compares with the $1.07 figure the company reported in the prior-year quarter.
  • The company’s net income of $2.3 billion in Q3 2022 reflected a modest rise from the $2.3 billion figure seen in the prior-year quarter due to a 90 bps y-o-y rise in operating margin to 58.9%.
  • For the full-year 2023, we expect the adjusted EPS to be higher at $5.11 compared to the EPS of $4.61 in 2021 and an estimated $4.83 in 2022.

(3) MO stock looks like it has some more room for growth

  • We estimate Altria’s Valuation to be around $52 per share, which is 16% above the current market price of $45.
  • At its current levels, MO stock is trading at a little under 9x forward EPS estimate of $5.11 in 2023, compared to the last three-year average of about 10x, implying that it has some room for growth.
  • If the company reports upbeat Q4 results and provides a 2023 outlook better than the street estimates, the P/E multiple will likely be revised upward, resulting in higher levels for MO stock.

MORE FOR YOU

While MO stock looks like it has some room for growth, it is helpful to see how Altria’s Peers fare on metrics that matter. You will find other valuable comparisons for companies across industries at Peer Comparisons.

Furthermore, the Covid-19 crisis has created many pricing discontinuities, which can offer attractive trading opportunities. For example, you’ll be surprised at how counter-intuitive the stock valuation is for Ecolab vs. Philip Morris.

What if you’re looking for a more balanced portfolio instead? Our high-quality portfolio and multi-strategy portfolio have beaten the market consistently since the end of 2016.
