The Best Stocks to Buy

We’re past the half way mark of 2021, looking ahead to 2022 and what the economy will look like.  And we’re wondering which new stocks will get the recommendations and whether they’re suitable for our investment portfolio.

2022 will be a different year for investors. After a solid Xmas season ahead, the economic recovery should continue. Not only is this a continuous recovery after reopening, the Fed stimulus injection in the USA is notable.  While people talk of corrections and crashes, the solid companies in good sectors will shine.

Investors have switched from pandemic stocks, to growth stocks to value stocks, and now as the recovery truly begins with the reopening, earnings stocks will be in vogue.  Earnings stocks is a new nickname given to those stocks who are expected to generate significant earnings.  They may have a good track record of producing high revenue, dividends, price appreciation and try to keep their costs under control.

With the economy on the mend, heading into good economic times, some companies will outperform.  You should watch the latest earnings reports as they come out, however, by then it will be too late.  Best to keep up on expert news reports on which earning stocks are buys.

There’s no telling what company’s costs will be during this turnaround, and some might suffer inflationary costs, yet those companies with good balance sheets and growing earnings are perhaps the only ones you should consider.

If you’re gambling with pot stocks or bitcoin, maybe take a good portion of your funds and find some high earnings stocks on the Dow Jones, S&P 500 or NASDAQ.

The goal then is to find companies who will benefit from the new economic and business environment. Is it 2019 all over again. Likely not, now that the Biden regime is raising taxes, raising energy costs, and providing trillions of stimulus funds and promoting alternative technologies.

2022 is perhaps the real first year of the global economic recovery as part of the 5 year outlook which smart investors use as their guide. If the global economy grows as expected, then industrials should do well. And with US oil production cut back, and with OPEC and Russia holding back production, oil stocks might soar into 2022.

Will EVs, 5G, Cybersecurity, Construction, transports, and ETFs soar next year? Will cryptocurrency approval globally kill the banks?

2022 will see most of the Covid 19 pandemic in the rear view mirror, but it will still be with us, threatening communities and certain sectors and weighing on GDP. Democrats efforts to defund the police, to stir up trouble with Iran, open the border, and inaction on the housing market crisis, will be front page news this year.  The outfall will happen in 2022.

What will be different in 2022?

  • interest may rise slightly
  • inflation will have receded
  • stimulus funds will be working their way into the economy
  • GDP will rise as production is back full tilt across the country
  • wages will grow only slowly
  • US dollar will continue losing value
  • energy prices will rise to cripple GDP
  • anti-monopoly law suits will get more serious to help the cause of small business

Yes, you’ll want to check out the standard opportunities which include oil stocks, 5G stocks, Google, Facebook, Bitcoin, Tesla, Apple, and perhaps even check out some high quality penny stocks.  And you’ll find some good stocks on the Dow Jones, NASDAQ, and S&P reports.

Tech stocks and Google, Facebook, and Amazon have lagged this year as the pandemic fizzles out. They are facing anti-trust and monopoly charges, and big taxes, along with controls on tax evasion, so parking your money with big tech is a sketchy decision.

The bitcoin forecast is highlighted by regulatory fears and the usual doubts when a company or technology transitions from fantasy to where it has to compete in real markets.  Will it be litecoin, bitcoin or ethereum that have the best upside potential. Is Ethereum’s association with business going to make it the most respected and accepted cryptocurrency stock, or is Bitcoin simply too popular and well known to ignore?

The key thing about Cryptocurrency is that central banks want control of their own currencies, so crypto’s future is a cloudy one. Still, Ethereum is already up 160% year to date.

Are Bitcoin and Ethereum ideal stocks to buy on the dip?  They’re getting beaten right now, but they have a history to rocketing to crazy heights. If speculation wins are what you’re after, the crytpocurrencies might be a good pick. Some feel as the economy becomes volatility and financial companies begin to teeter, that cryptocurrencies will thrive.

If there is a stock market crash in 2023, you’ve got 18 months to pick some suffering stocks that can last the long run. Which stocks are those? Take a look at the stock market forecast page for some ideas.

Although the NASDAQ has stayed steady and the Dow Jones stocks have excelled, it may be S&P 500 stocks are your best bets. Take a look at the S&P 500 forecast and it’s top stocks.

Should you just stick to the best of the Dow Jones, S&P, and NASDAQ?  Tech stocks are sketchy right now however Google, Facebook might be the safest. See some best stock picks.  See the top recommended stocks to buy below.

Which Stocks Will Thrive in the Last Half of 2021?

We’re seeing a continued slow rotation into value stocks away from speculative growth stocks. Although Bitcoin is highly speculative and it too has drawn a lot of investors money. Cryptocurrency’s are a gamble and perhaps not for the investor who lacks gambling money.

GDP forecasts for the next 5 years are promising. 2020 is a wasted year, but steadily each year, it’s scheduled to grow guided by optimism and business reopening.

The economy looks up, and with the recovery, consumer spending and infrastructure spending should be able to carry the ball forward.  The full economic recovery won’t be felt until 2022/2023.  It takes years for stimulus spending to really take effect.

Find the Best Bargain Priced Stocks

Instead, surveil the available bargain stocks. Stocks prices will keep plunging with or without stimulus money. When no one is working, stock values cannot climb.

How To Spot the Best Stock Picks

  • checkout their P/E ratio — those with the lowest drop are ripe for the highest rebounds
  • low priced stocks with high volume – means everyone is evacuating
  • stocks that thrived during the last rapid price growth phase
  • Russell index where lots of small caps will be decimated and then return with vigor in 2021
  • good estimate of the 5 year and 10 year outlook
  • stocks in high growth sectors such as EV cars, 5G, software, automation and artificial intelligence

The real estate sector has performed alright and there might be still be some home builder stocks you might buy. The 5 year forecast for housing though is good and the 2022 real estate market should be a good one despite the current severe housing shortage. It’s that shortage that will draw in more investors.

The top losing market sectors are energy and financials.  Google stock price and Apple Stock price will bounce back too, but percentage wise you might not get the same growth as with smaller companies that were hurt more by this recession.

As we head into the second half of 2021, the stocks that are beginning to sink (weighted alpha) are perhaps those to avoid:
