With the price of goods rising due to inflation, choosing the right stock is more important than ever. These stocks are showing strong support heading into November.

These five stocks are on the uptrend. Since they are at or near all-time highs, it’s best to wait for a dip in the market.

This month I discuss five stocks for you to consider.

  • Applovin (APP)
  • CrowdStrike (CRWD)
  • Netflix (NFLX)
  • Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD)
  • Snowflake (SNOW)

The price for the stocks was recorded on November 1, 2021, at the open of the market.

Pioneer explores, develops, and produces natural gas liquids (NGLs), gas, and oil. The company had proved undeveloped reserves and proved developed non-producing reserves of 31 million barrels of oil, 88 billion cubic feet of gas, 17 million barrels of NGLs, 88 billion cubic feet of gas; and owned interests in 11 gas processing plants. The company was started in 1997 and is headquartered in Irving, Texas.

Analysis. Pioneer looks strong in the institutional crowd (market cap of $47 billion, owned by a whopping 1,913 mutual funds at the end of September). The company has a 920,000 net acre position in Midland and another 100,000 acres in the Delaware basins. The company is leading a best-in-class breakeven oil price (around $28 oil!) and strong cash flow even if energy prices turned. The company expected $3.2 billion free cash flow in 2021 and about $4 billion annually for the next five years. Pioneer has its debt under control and expects to pay out around 80% of cash flow. Like Devon Energy, Pioneer has implemented its fixed-variable dividend policy —in Q2, it paid a 56 cent per share base dividend and another $1.51 in variable dividends. With strong energy demand, profits will be stronger in Q3 onwards. Pioneer has one of the best big-cap oil stories. Earnings are expected November 3, but analysts expect strong growth to continue with rising energy prices.
