Don't let the cord-cutting movement lead you astray.
"Comcast (CMCSA) shares are attractively valued, in our view, and the company is well positioned in video and broadband even amid mounting fears of cord-cutting. Furthermore, the FCF outlook supports higher buybacks, with the potential for meaningful EPS accretion. We believe concerns about a bid for Sky/Fox (FOXA) are largely reflected in the current valuation, though the uncertain outcome creates an overhang that could limit near-term share appreciation," Jefferies writes.

Comcast is also a holding in Jim Cramer's Action Alerts PLUS member club.

Wall Street continues to be obsessed with surging chip player Nvidia (NVDA) .
Writes Jefferies, "We see NVDA as a major beneficiary of the 4th Tectonic Shift in Computing, where parallel processing captures share in the computing market. We think NVDA's decade-long investment in CUDA has resulted in a multi-year competitive advantage. We think core Gaming will benefit from increased demand for high-end PC cards and mining GPUs for cryptocurrency. Our field work indicates that the Volta-based tensor cores (matrix multiplication) NVDA has put into its next-generation Datacenter architecture extends NVDA's lead over competitive merchant neural networking processors."
Adds the Action Alerts PLUS research team on the long-time holding, "We continue to view Nvidia as being at the center of several strong secular growth trends including gaming, the cloud (data centers) and autonomous driving."
