The Best Stocks to Invest in at the Moment
July 30, 2020 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Buying stock isn't tricky. It's making it work well over time that can be challenging. Someone considering purchasing stock for the first time needs to get the fundamentals right, which includes buying the stock at the right time.
It's recommended to choose stock with an annual earnings growth of 25% at least, along with companies that have innovative products and services. For those considering investing in companies that aren't yet profitable, look for IPOs that generate significant growth.
Another thing to look for is stock supply and demand. Consider stock in only the best industries or ones which will provide the best support. Then look at stock charts and find a suitable point for entry.
Markets in a confirmed uptrend are best for investment, and cash investment is best when a market goes into a correction. The best gains usually occur a few weeks after. Also, look for stock with increasing relative strength lines.
Stocks Currently Performing Well and Worth Investment
Apple (AAPL). There are many great reasons to consider investing in Apple. Since August 2nd 2018, they were the first-ever company in the U.S. to reach $1 trillion in market capitalisation, and with a value of $72 million, are the biggest holding in the Berkshire Hathaway portfolio. Their current market share in the U.S smartphone market is an impressive 49%, and they're a leader in the tablet market as well. The fact that they're achieving a 77% quarterly dividend from February 13th 2020 is just another sound reason to invest.
Microsoft (MSFT). Microsoft was the third company to achieve a market capitalisation above $1 trillion hence why Bill Gates is considered one of the world's most wealthy business people. It's not Windows and Office software which is fuelling it's success. Server and cloud products are becoming increasingly popular. In fact, server product revenue grew 30% and 62% for Asure. This is according to the second fiscal quarter for 2020. From the fiscal year 2020, a quarterly dividend was paid out of 51 cents per share.
McDonald's. By sales, McDonald's is now considered the biggest U.S food chain, worth $130.4 billion in 2019. This represents an increase up to $4.73 in 2019 from $4.19 just a year earlier. By the end of April 2nd 2020, the total return on stock removing dividends reinvested reached 132.5%. When reinvested dividends are included, this rose to 190.54%,
Amazon. Being only second to Walmart, Amazon is now considered the second biggest retailer in the world with impressive net sales totalling $280.5 billion for 2019. It's similar to it's competitor, Microsoft, in that it relies heavily on cloud computing to generate stable profit and revenue. This is reflected in the stocks annual average return of 47.23% for the 2015 to 2019 period. It's also the second company to reach a market capitalisation of $1 trillion by September 4th 2018. It comes as no surprise that the founder, Jeff Bezos, is worth $131 billion.
Alphabet. Ever wondered who controls search features on YouTube or Google? The answer is Alphabet, which had cash and marketable securities of $119.7 billion by the end of last year. From mid-January 2020, it was the fourth company with a market capitalisation of more than $1 trillion.
Facebook. There's no doubting the popularity of Facebook, considering it has 2.5 billion users alone. It was named the top stock in 2017, where it gained an increase of over 50% shares. It also achieved a return of around 25%. Although the short-term outlook appears to be risky with a falloff in ad revenue, long term, it could be a reliable option. Facebook's sister brand Instagram is still taking off, and there are other projects in the pipeline for dating. Not forgetting the growth in the Facebook marketplace as well.
888. The final one to be discussed is 888 Poker, which is considered a high-quality brand with strong momentum. Both these traits are highly favoured with investors who are seeking a reliable deal. 888 is a cash-generating and resilient business that won't fail to deliver on good compound investment return. It's a stable and growing company with strong sales and earnings, indicated by the 33.2% figure on five-year return on capital.
