5 Stocks to Watch in 2016

5 Stocks to Watch in 2016
  • Opening Intro -

    Despite great up and down movements caused by both bears and bulls, 2015 ended along the notes that were constant in the second part of the year.


2016 started strongly, and by the end of January, we already have some stocks you could look to add to your portfolio:

1. Aerospace/Defense stocks

With the entire world being involved in the war against ISIS, defense budgets are being increased almost everywhere. This leads to better-than-expected returns for U.S. companies, who not only have to produce more products and new technology, but also have a lot more states to sell them too. The defense sector is our pick for the best performing sector in the market in 2016.

2. Intel

Technology stocks will always be under the highlights, but Intel is not your modern, start-up like stock. It has been here for a good time, and despite the 5.84% loss in 2015 which was mainly due to the decrease in PC demand, is now considered a bargain stock and could see a very good growth in 2016. Most of this growth will be owed to the fact that Intel is playing hard on the smartphone market, introducing a new, advanced chip.

3. Apple

While this may seem counter-intuitive, Apple has very good fundamentals and close to zero debt. Due to the world exiting recession and entering deflation, consumption in emerging markets will only continue to grow. These regions will demonstrate a very strong appetite for Apple products in the next several years, so buying the stock now can produce good gains.

Also watch and invest in paying off your mortgage.

4. Tech/innovation stocks

As general investments appear to be more and more volatile at the beginning of 2016, you should be looking to add to your portfolio of stocks from innovative companies that bring new technologies in the world. A big plus in this case is the fact that they are relatively independent from issues with commodities and other markets, leading to a better overall performance.

5. Slow-moving blue chip stocks

As more and more millennials enter the investment market, they won’t be looking for risky traders – they’re a generation that’s suffering from the effects of risky trades. They will be looking for established companies with goods records in the domain – something you should also consider.

These ideas are just the tip of a long list of stocks which are considered good buys in 2016. Remember to keep your portfolio carefully balanced and check it at least once every 3 months. You can also try holding a good number of dividend stocks and blue-chip stocks as counter-balance for these ideas and also invest in more risky ones, like up-and-running companies for emerging markets.

That’s the beauty of the stock market – the multitude of options you have at your fingertips, every day. To get even more options and tips, share this article with your friends and followers and discuss investment ideas for 2016. Build a portfolio together and organize meetings every few months to keep track of it!
