These are Wall Street’s favorite Dow stocks, and where analysts think they’re going


Fears over even higher Federal Reserve interest rates dragged stocks last week, but Wall Street analysts still see upside in some individual names. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 4.2% for the week, with the bulk of that decline coming Friday, when the 30-stock average slid about 1,000 points after Fed Chair Jerome Powell warned there could be “some pain” ahead as the central bank tries to rein in inflation. The S & P 500 and Nasdaq Composite also suffered steep weekly losses. Only two of the 30 Dow components posted a gain for the week: Chevron and Boeing. That said, there are some Dow stocks that could rally going forward, according to analysts. To find these names, CNBC Pro used FactSet to screen the Dow for the following criteria: Buy ratings from more than 50% of analysts covering them Potential upside of at least 10%, based on the average price target Here are the stocks that made the cut: Microsoft is the most beloved stock on the list, with 82% of analysts rating the tech giant a buy. Analysts also see upside of 20% for the name as of Aug. 25. Shares of Microsoft have struggled this year, losing roughly 20% in that time. However, JPMorgan’s Mark Murphy said in a note earlier this month that the company is “weathering the storm.” Salesforce , Disney and Visa also have buy ratings from more than 70% of analysts covering them. However, Visa is by far the relative outperformer, having lost just 6.3% this year. Meanwhile, Salesforce and Disney are down 35% and 26%, respectively, for 2022. To be sure, Salesforce has the biggest potential upside of any stock on the list at more than 30% as of Aug. 25. Analysts on average see Disney going up 20% and Visa 27%. Other names that made the list are Boeing , Walmart , Home Depot and Goldman Sachs . –CNBC’s Michael Bloom contributed to this report.
