Investors are constantly searching for the next big winner. We mean the stocks that are on track to see explosive growth, handsomely rewarding the investors that managed to get onboard at the right time. But how are investors supposed to know when it’s time to snap up the right stock?When first approaching this task, investors will often turn to names during or on the heels of an impressive rally. However, Wall Street analysts note that this isn’t always the best move. Instead, the Street’s seasoned pros tell investors that compelling investments can be found among names that have stumbled lately. Rockiness in share prices can present a unique opportunity to get in on the action before the stock heats up.Taking this into consideration, we used TipRanks’ Stock Screener tool to pinpoint 3 tickers with strong growth narratives that remain intact despite recent weakness. If this wasn’t promising enough, each of the names has received enough bullish calls in the last three months to be given a “Strong Buy” consensus rating.Enphase Energy (ENPH)Investors are desperately trying to understand what’s going on with Enphase Energy. Known for being the leading provider of solar microinverters, the company has seen shares tank following a period of massive growth in the first half of the year. Nonetheless, one analyst states that concerns regarding ENPH have been blown out of proportion.Roth Capital’s Philip Shen points to a report published by Jcap as the partial source of recent shakiness. The primary assumption made in the report is that ENPH has seven months of inventory left in the channel. Shen responded by calling this claim “simply nonsensical”, with his estimates putting the actual inventory levels at 3-4 weeks.Adding to the good news, the analyst wrote in a note to clients that the U.S. residential market is expanding much more quickly than previously expected.“We continue to believe the U.S. resi market will be up 25% YoY in 2019 AND in 2020 vs. consensus view of mid-teens YoY growth after a fresh round of checks this week. Overall, ENPH is ramping capacity at the right time to grow with an accelerating market,” the analyst commented.As a result, Shen advocates buying the dip in ENPH shares, as reiterates a Buy rating along with $30 price target, which implies shares could soar 65% in the next twelve months. (To watch Shen’s track record, click here)Like Shen, other Wall Street analysts are impressed with the energy tech company. As ENPH has earned 100% analyst support over the last three months, the word on the Street is that it’s a ‘Strong Buy’. Additionally, its $31.29 average price target indicates about 70% upside potential. (See Enphase stock analysis on TipRanks)Ciena Corporation (CIEN)Ciena supplies telecommunications networking equipment and software as well as provides various services. While it’s no question that shares have taken a beating over the last three months, several analysts maintain that big gains are in store.The company is on track to meet its full-year 2020 revenue and margin guidance thanks to its continued focus on revenue diversification. This diversification has been witnessed not only across geographic regions, but also across customer segments.On top of this, CIEN has successfully taken market share, becoming one of the top two players in the optical systems space. The other giant in the industry, Huawei, has been crippled given the fact that it’s still on the U.S. Commerce Department’s entry list, preventing the company from accessing the U.S. supply chain.This lends itself to Cowen & Co. analyst Paul Silverstein’s conclusion that the pullback represents an attractive entry point. “Significant broad-based rev diversification, ongoing share gains and focus on profitability, not just rev growth, is driving far better and more consistent, earnings power and cash flow. Investor expectations have yet to catch-up making for highly attractive risk-reward,” he explained. With this in mind, the five-star analyst remains bullish on CIEN. He even sees upside potential of 47%. (To watch Silverstein’s track record, click here)In general, the rest of the Street is also in favor of CIEN. 11 Buy ratings and 3 Holds assigned in the last three months add up to a ‘Strong Buy’ analyst consensus. At an average price target of $50.67, the potential twelve month gain comes in at 36%. (See Ciena stock analysis on TipRanks)Catalyst Pharmaceuticals (CPRX)Catalyst is a biopharma name that develops treatments for people affected by neuromuscular and neurological diseases including Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS), MuSK antibody positive myasthenia gravis (MuSK-MG), congenital myasthenic syndromes (CMS) and spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) Type 3.Analysts remind investors to look past recent weakness as its Firdapse drug, its FDA-approved therapy for LEMS in adults, still has the potential to heal share prices. Share prices are hurting partly as a result of unfavorable clinical data.On October 30, CPRX broke the news that Firdapse fell short of its primary endpoints during the Phase 3 CMS-001 study evaluating its ability to treat CMS, a group of conditions known for causing muscle weakness. Even though shares fell 13% in reaction to the findings, SunTrust Robinson analyst Edward Nash points out that this result was somewhat expected. “We are not surprised by the results give more than 50 subtypes of CMS with only 16 pts randomized in the study,” he commented.The four-star analyst adds that the drug is likely to demonstrate improved performance in treating MuSK-MG, which is set to see study enrollment completion by the end of the year. This would make top line data available in the first half of 2020, possibly driving big gains for CPRX.With Nash noting that the FDA could take a favorable stance on CPRX due to the difficult nature of the patient population, it’s no wonder he reiterated his bullish recommendation and $11 price target. This target conveys his confidence in CPRX’s ability to climb 135% higher over the next twelve months. (To watch Nash’s track record, click here)As 4 Buy ratings have been issued in the previous three months compared to no Holds or Sells, CPRX is a ‘Strong Buy’. In addition, the biopharma’s $9 average price target brings the upside potential to 91%. (See CPRX stock analysis on TipRanks)
[Editor's note: "7 Semiconductor Stocks to Buy for Your Inner Geek" was previously published in July 2019. It has since been updated to include the most relevant information available.]Last year saw chip stocks swoon. There was the beginning of the trade war with China and all the unknowns it brought about.Remember, the one thing the market hates more than anything is uncertainty. And living with the uncertainty of how this powerful industry was going to navigate an all-out - or even partial - trade war was on everyone's mind.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsGlobal economies haven't been expanding as quickly as hoped, so spending has slowed. And that meant semiconductor stocks may well be starting their downward cycle.Smaller firms were spared initially, as the big semi firms took the brunt of it. But then the sector suffered. * 7 Stocks to Sell Before They Roll Over This year is entirely different. The S&P Semiconductor Select Industry Index has returned a whopping 43.8% year to date, more than doubling the S&P 500's 21%.Even the slowing U.S. economy won't slow them down now. Below are seven semiconductor stocks to buy to satisfy your inner geek and your growth portfolio. Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)Source: Shutterstock Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) looked like a goner a couple years ago.It was competing in two sectors that put it up against the biggest chipmakers out there, plus it was living on scraps from Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) and Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) in both the CPU and GPU markets.As the market began to transform with AI, cloud, and IoT gaining momentum, AMD looked like it was a bit lost. It still made quality products but was struggling to keep up. Lisa Su took over in 2015 and started to make changes, it was just a question of whether she could make them before it was too late.It's safe to say now, she has.AMD stock is making a comeback and competing again. It has also been beating earnings on a regular basis. AMD stock is up more than 90% year to date and doesn't show many signs of weakness. All of these factors make AMD one of the key semiconductor stocks to buy. Enphase Energy (ENPH)Enphase Energy (NASDAQ:ENPH) isn't technically a semiconductor stock, but it falls into the category since its niche doesn't really fit better anywhere else. At any rate, it's a great stock to buy.ENPH has become the leading builder of microinverter systems for the solar photovoltaic industry.Basically, when you get energy from solar panels (or most renewables), the electricity is DC (direct current). But the grid, residences, and offices operate on AC (alternating current).You have to convert that DC power to AC to make it useful. That's what inverters do.Prices are coming down as more solar is being deployed. ENPH is getting a lot of that new business. * 7 Under-the-Radar Retail Stocks to Buy Now What makes this one of the best semiconductor stocks ti buy is that it's already up around 70% year to date and this train just started running. Inphi (IPHI)Inphi Corp (NASDAQ:IPHI) is a small analog-to-digital chip maker company in a very high-growth space. Unfortunately, the trade war with China has hamstrung its ability to keep its rapid growth going.IPHI stock has bounced around the past few years but is really coming into its own over the past year.The stock is up 85% in the past year and 120% year to date. Its chips are focused in the server, communications and cloud sectors.Like all chip stocks, IPHI took a hit last year when the trade war started because it had big clients in China. The market for its products was growing quickly there as Chinese tech spread across Asia. As tensions ease, though, this is one of the semiconductor stocks to buy you want to keep your eye on. Lattice Semiconductor (LSCC)Source: Shutterstock Lattice Semiconductor (NASDAQ:LSCC) is back to focusing on its core technology - field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). These are semiconductors that have become very popular products for a variety of industries.For a while, LSCC was trying to diversify its product lines into various sectors of the tech space, which wasn't getting much traction. LSCC is now back to focusing on its core business.That's why over the past two years the stock flat-lined for the most part, until 2019 began.Another big part of it was the fact that LSCC has had historically close ties to the Chinese market, so the trade war was a big factor in its performance. But again, uncertainty was more the issue. * 7 Dividend Stocks That Could Struggle to Continue Payout Hikes By January, the trade war fallout was clear and resetting expectations boosted LSCC. The stock is up 180% year to date and looks well-positioned to get moving again. It's a stock to buy. Xilinx (XLNX)Xilinx (NASDAQ:XLNX) is one of the few semiconductor stocks to buy on this list that isn't rallying like crazy.The reason? One of its top customers happens to be Huawei, the massive Chinese telecom company.But there's no real reason to be alarmed. This company has a $30 billion market cap, is up 44% year to date, and sells at a trailing PE of 35.XLNX is a leading chipmaker in two of the hottest sectors right now: 5G telecom and data centers.There's little doubt that XLNX will continue to grow and maintain its position in lead-edge technologies. It might not be growing as quickly as smaller firms in the sector, but it's a solid, world-class player with a very bright future. Cirrus Logic (CRUS)Source: Hamish Irvine via FlickrCirrus Logic (NASDAQ:CRUS) is what's known as a "fabless" chipmaker, which essentially means it outsources production of its silicon wafers.From here, things get pretty technical, as its production slate includes codecs for analog-to-digital or digital-to-analog converters, smart codecs, boosted amplifiers and haptic drivers, among other integrated circuits (IC).Chances are these ICs are used in your laptop, smartwatch or even your virtual reality (VR) headset, especially if your device is an iPhone.Cirrus Logic's stock has outperformed in 2019, rising 100% year-to-date. The performance of CRUS is closely tied to sentiment around Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), up 30%-plus. * 7 AI Stocks to Buy to Profit from the Recent Tech Correction As demand for iPhones increases, so do Cirrus shares. Some see weakness in Cirrus Logic's lack of diversification, but if you're going to be tied down, there are not many companies that are better to be tied to than Apple. Mellanox Technologies (MLNX)Source: Shutterstock Mellanox Technologies (NASDAQ:MLNX) is an Israel-based chip firm that also produces a number of interconnect and switch systems.Its fundamental purpose is to build support systems that facilitate data transmission between servers, storage systems, telecom and other embedded equipment. This is a very important bridge technology that allows all the tech on one side to get its information to the other side.In March, NVDA announced it was buying MLNX for $6.9 billion. INTC had tried to buy it in January but was rebuffed. Other suitors included Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and XLNX. It's a very sought-after company.While the company sells for around $114 a share, that doesn't exactly equate to where the stock will eventually land.At this point, MLNX is a stock to buy and an interesting way to buy into NVDA. This is a key player in a very important sector of tech moving forward.
