Advanced Micro Devices shares have lagged the broader Zacks Electronics - Semiconductors industry over the past year (+55.8% vs. +113.5%), but they have handily outperformed the broader market (+55.8% vs. +27.8% for the S&P 500 index). The Zacks analyst believes that weakness in the Gaming and the Embedded businesses have caused the stock to lag the chips space.

Moreover, AMD faces significant competition from NVIDIA in GPU market, and is suffering from a challenging macroeconomic environment, along with persistent inflation, which has forced the U.S. Federal Reserve not to cut interest rates year to date.

However, while the company has not matched up to the broader semiconductor market which has been booming, portfolio strength, expanding partner base and server CPU revenues have continued to benefit its business.

GE Aerospace shares have outperformed the Zacks Transportation – Airline industry over the past year (+48.0% vs. +8.7%). The Zacks analyst believes that rising global defense budgets, geopolitical tensions, positive airline & airframer dynamics and robust demand for commercial air travel auger well for the company.

Yet, high costs and expenses related to projects and restructuring activities have remained as causes of concern.

Shares of Newmont have outperformed the Zacks Mining – Miscellaneous industry over the last six months (+16.3% vs. -3.6%). Per the Zacks analyst, the company is making notable progress with its growth projects, including the Tanami expansion and the acquisition of Newcrest. Higher gold prices in recent months have also contributed to drive its performance.

Yet, higher production costs and a rise in general and administrative costs as it continues integration work after the Newcrest acquisition remain headwinds.

Atrion Corporation’s shares have outperformed the Zacks Medical – Dental Supplies industry over the past year (+31.9% vs. -1.9%). The Zacks analyst believes that revenue growth in the cardiovascular segment and a strong cash position have benefited Atrion, while a growing global medical devices market presents significant opportunities for it.

However, high inventory levels and competitive pressures from major players could strain its profitability.
