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

first_img Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images 10 UK shares I’d buy in 2021 for big returns The worst might be over for UK shares — for now — but let’s not for even a single minute believe that it will be smooth sailing in 2021. 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.

Economic Outlook: Consumer Confidence and The Fed

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago About Author: Nicole Casperson in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines The Federal Reserve Bank of New York recently released results from its September 2017 Survey of Consumer Expectations, which showed overall increases in pessimism.Specifically, the survey found that expectations about earnings, spending, income growth, home prices, financial situations and the stock market all “deteriorated.”The fraction of respondents who believe they are financially better off declined compared to last year to 32.3 percent, while the proportion of respondents who expect being better off financially a year from now declined to 40.3 percent.The mean perceived probability that U.S. stock prices will be higher 12 months from now also fell from its August level of 43.1 percent to 42 percent.Median home price change expectancies fell to 3 percent its lowest level since March 2016. In addition, median expected household income growth fell from 2.7 percent in August to 2.2 percent; the lowest level recorded since February 2014 and well below the series high of 3 percent in July 2017, according to the survey results.Additionally, “the average perceived probability of missing a minimum debt payment over the next three months increased for the third month in a row,” from 12 percent in June, to 13.4 percent in September.As consumer’s hope in the economy dwindles, the Fed’s expectations might be different. The Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) recently released its minutes of the Committee meeting held on September 19-20, 2017.In the latest FOMC minutes, the Fed indicated that an interest rate hike later in 2017 is likely, even with low inflation. However, Federal Reserve officials see the economy expanding at a steady pace.The meeting also shows members anticipating that the factors slowing down inflation will pass. The expectation is that inflation will hit the 2 percent target the central bank believes is consistent with healthy growth.Housing updates included, “interest rates on 30-year fixed-rate residential mortgages moved lower over the intermeeting period, in line with comparable-maturity Treasury yields.” While growth in mortgage lending for home purchases “picked up in July and August compared with its pace over the second quarter.” However, credit conditions remained tight for borrowers with low credit scores or hard-to-document incomes.The Fed also discussed recent information on housing activity, which suggests that real residential investment spending was decreasing in the third quarter after declining in the second quarter. Therefore, “starts for new single-family homes edged down, on net, in July and August, and starts for multifamily units moved lower in both months.”Building permits issuance for new single-family homes—which tends to be a good indicator of the underlying trend in construction—declined in July and August.To view the whole summary of FOMC minutes, click here.
