Interactive Brokers

  • Year-To-Date Performance: +44.4%
  • Market Cap: $50.4 Billion

Back in December 2023, I recommended Interactive Brokers when the stock was trading at $81.33. At that time, InvestingPro's Fair Value estimate for IBKR was $120.54, indicating a potential upside of 48.2%.

This recommendation was based on robust fundamentals, a strong growth outlook, and favorable market conditions.Interactive Brokers Chart

Fast forward to today, and IBKR is now trading at $119.74. It reached an all-time high of $129.19 on May 28, easily surpassing its InvestingPro Fair Value price target.

The Greenwich, Connecticut-based financial services firm has significantly outperformed the broader market this year, delivering outstanding returns for investors.

The continued growth and robust financial health of the company have been key drivers behind its impressive performance. It operates the largest electronic trading platform in the United States by number of daily average revenue trades.

It should be noted that despite the strong year-to-date rally, IBKR shares are still trading at a discount, as indicated by InvestingPro’s updated Fair Value estimate.

There's a possibility of a 28.4% increase from last night’s closing price, moving it closer to its Fair Value price set at $153.69 per share.

The stock has benefited from a strong earnings trajectory, increased trading activity, and expanding client accounts, reinforcing its position as a top pick in the financial sector.

KKR & Co.

  • Year-To-Date Performance: +33.3%
  • Market Cap: $97.7 Billion

In mid-March of this year, I highlighted KKR & Co. when it was trading at $96.83, with a Fair Value estimate of $106.14. This implied a potential upside of 10.6% at the time, as per the AI-backed models in InvestingPro.

KKR stock has since climbed to $110.48, exceeding the initial Fair Value price target. Shares, which have gained 33.3% year-to-date, reached a new record peak of $113.91 on June 12.KKR Chart

Key drivers of this bullish sentiment include KKR's strong investment track record as well as a favorable macroeconomic environment for alternative investments.

The New York-based company's outstanding performance this year has been driven by its strategic investments, solid asset management business, and robust earnings growth.

Investing Pro's latest Fair Value assessment for KKR stock is $114.63, implying a further potential upside of just about 4%.

Additionally, InvestingPro paints a mostly positive picture of the investment management firm's Financial Health, highlighting its upbeat earnings prospects, rising net income, and overall strong profitability outlook.

It should also be noted that KKR has maintained its annual dividend payout for 15 consecutive years, underlining its focus on total shareholder return.
