The mood rises when the annus horribilis ends in 2020. There is the feeling that after all we have been through in the last ten months, it can`t get any worse. And so investors are looking forward to 2021. Two major factors of market uncertainty are being resolved. First, COVID-19 vaccines are being developed and two major pharmaceutical companies have announced that vaccines will be available in a few months. And second, Democrat Joe Biden will take office in the White House, with increased GOP opposition in Congress. The prospect of a release of the coronavirus and a divided government, unable to take extreme or controversial measures, promises a level of stability that will be welcome. A sense of optimism and a perception that there are chances, Wall Street equity analysts met for success. We tracked TipRanks` data on three stocks that marked highly valued analysts as potentially large investments. These are repurchase rating shares with double-digit upside potential for the coming year. LendingTree, Inc.

(TREE)First, LendingTree, the online marketplace that connects borrowers and lenders. The company offers borrowers options to purchase competitive interest rates, credit conditions and various financing products. Offers from several sources of financing include credit cards, deposit accounts and insurance products. LendingTree is headquartered in North Carolina, with offices in New York, Chicago, and Seattle.In third quarter, the company has shown mixed budget results. Revenue increased 19% to $220 million — but the result declined one after the other and throughout the year. At minus $1.33, the EPS was net negative, well below the previous quarter`s $1.70. 5-star analyst Mayank Tandon, who has evaluated a total of 66 professionals out of more than 7,100, is optimistic despite recent price developments following Q3`s results. Tandon noted: “[We] remain positive about TREE LT`s shares because we believe the company is well positioned to generate strong and consistent sales… Consumer incomes decreased by 68% y/y, as the pandemic limited consumer lending, but trends improved on a sequential basis due to better personal credit volumes and a seasonal boost in student credit activity… “TREThe diversified portfolio of personal financial products and strong secular trends that drive personal financial advertising and purchasing to digital channels will help the company achieve its LT growth goals,” concludes the Analyst. To this end, Tandon evaluates TREE a Buy and sets a price target of 375 $US. At the current level, its 2021 target proposes a 44% increase in the share price.

(To see Tandon`s list, click here) LendingTree has a consensus of Strong Buy analysts unanimously, based on 6 buy valuations that were established last week. The average share price target of $362 implies that it has a 39% growth margin over the current share price of $260.09.
