10 UK shares I’d buy in 2021 for big returns

I reckon there will be bumps and highs along the way. And I intend to make the most of both of them. I see 10 big things that will impact UK share prices in 2021, which can be seen under four themes. These are detailed below, including how I’d invest according to each of them.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…UK shares that avoid risks#1. Brexit: This is the number one reason that the FTSE 100 index has underperformed in the past few years. And now it’s almost time for a wrap on the first chapter. Brexit deal or not, I’d buy a stock that’s defensive, even with a UK focus. My choice is the hygienist Rentokil Initial.#2. Business closures: Coronavirus isn’t just a human tragedy, it has also shut down businesses. Retailer Debenhams is just one example. More could happen. But there are others that are doing well. Like JD Sports Fashion, which is on an acquisition spree. It’s one I’d buy instead. Growing with the recovery#3. US recovery: With the US economic recovery under way, I’d also buy a FTSE 100 stock that gains from an upswing in the world’s largest economy. One example is the construction company CRH, which gets much of its revenue from the US. #4. China boom: If the US can recover, China will be booming by comparison. Metals demand is on the rise, and I’m buying the multi-commodity miner Rio Tinto. #5. Emerging markets growth: Emerging markets, especially in Asia, are slated to grow as well, which makes me bullish on consumer goods biggie Unilever, with its strong focus on those countries. Playing prices and policies#6. Oil prices: With all the growth, oil prices will be back in business too. If I was investing for the next three years or so, I’d buy stocks like BP and Royal Dutch Shell, which have also paid great dividends historically.#7. Interest rates: In this glorious mix, I reckon domestic interest rates will remain quite muted to stoke UK growth. With the price of loans low, credit uptake can increase, helping domestic banks like Lloyds Bank. I think it’s still risky, but the tide could turn. #8. Policy push: Home builders have benefited hugely from supportive policies in 2020 like the stamp duty holiday. Even afterwards, some policy support for economic growth and an accommodative interest rate environment could help them thrive. I like Persimmon among the FTSE 100 ones.Long-term investments in UK shares#9. Corona catalysed: From a long-term perspective, there are clear winners like the FTSE 100 e-grocer Ocado, whose growth has been accelerated during the pandemic. I reckon it will continue to make gains because of this. #10. Clean energy: Over the next decade, clean energy-related companies will win big. One of them, I reckon will be Johnson Matthey, which is building a plant in Poland to develop a chemical used in electric vehicle cells.  Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Swans are up for fight – Monk

first_img The Swans head to Everton on Saturday, standing just four points above the drop zone. They have not posted a league win since beating Cardiff almost six weeks ago, with last Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat against West Brom leaving them still within striking distance of the bottom three clubs. Press Association Swansea head coach Garry Monk says he has no question marks over his players as they prepare for what could be a Barclays Premier League relegation dog fight. “The good thing for us is it’s in our hands,” Monk said. “We are not chasing to try and make up points. It is upon us to make sure we fight for every single point. “I have got no question marks over the players. They all want to do well. Their attitude has been spot on. “At the end of the day, they realise what is at stake. When you get questioned, you tend to get a reaction. “Everyone always talks about the 40-point (safety) mark, but a lot of the teams have to play each other. A lot will drop points and a lot will get points. “The reaction this week has been very good. You have to be honest with people. I told them straight after the game (against West Brom) what I felt. They are all in it together and pushing each other. “I am more than confident that in the coming games we will earn enough points to achieve what we want to achieve.” Swansea were boosted against West Brom by Spanish striker Michu’s return off the bench following a 17-game injury absence, and his record as a proven top-flight goalscorer could ultimately be a decisive factor in steering his club to safety. “He hasn’t had a lot of game time,” Monk added. “It is about building him up, really. Whether he starts or not on the weekend, we haven’t decided. “It is unfair to put too much pressure on him. Of course, he has got the quality to score goals for us, and he is a very important player with the quality he has got, but it is important we don’t rush him.” Jonjo Shelvey and Nathan Dyer are set to join Michu in being part of the squad for Goodison Park. Shelvey has been out for almost a month with hamstring trouble, while Dyer missed the West Brom game due to a heel injury. Swansea, who were knocked out of the FA Cup by Everton earlier this season, have never beaten the Merseyside club, and Saturday’s clash sees a quickfire return appointment with their former manager Roberto Martinez. “They are very strong at home,” Monk said. “They are pushing well in the league. We played them in the cup not long ago, and for 60 minutes our gameplan worked very well. “We realise how hard it will be, but we will go up there with a determination to try and get a reaction from last weekend. “Roberto is a good manager. From his time here, you could tell he was always going to go on and do some good things in football. He has got his chance now at Everton, and he has taken it very well.” last_img read more
