Comcast Corporation (CMCSA)
No matter what happens to the economy and how much automation is implemented in years to come, media will still hold strong. CMCSA is a worldwide media and tech behemoth highlighted by Comcast Cable and NBC Universal. CMCSA had nearly $110 billion in revenue in 2019. Cable Communications account for more than half of CMCSA’s annual revenue. These communications consist of high-speed internet, video, and automation services.
TipRanks reports the average analyst price target for CMCSA is $50.50, which could mean a 9% upside. CMCSA has gradually climbed back to its pre-COVID price of $46.
