Top 5 Stocks To Invest In 2021

Warren Buffett once said that when its comes to stocks, his “favorite holding period is forever.” Investors shouldn’t blindly apply that idea to all stocks, but holding the best stocks “forever” can mean the difference between a 10% gain and multi-bagger returns. Today, I’ll discuss three of my favorite long-term holdings, and why I don’t plan to sell them anytime soon.

Amazon

I bought Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) back in the low $600s, and it now trades at above $1,700. Yet I plan to keep holding the stock, because its growth story seems more compelling than ever.

Amazon generates most of its revenue from its online marketplaces in over a dozen countries. Amazon locks in those customers with Prime, its premium plan, which offers discounts, free shipping, streaming media, and other perks.

Top 5 Stocks To Invest In 2021: Nuveen Core Equity Alpha Fund(JCE)

Nuveen Core Equity Alpha Fund (the Fund) is a diversified closed-end management investment company. The Fund’s investment objective is to provide total return. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective primarily through long-term capital appreciation, and secondarily through income and gains. The Fund will invest in a portfolio of common stocks selected by employing a mathematical process designed by its sub-advisor, Enhanced Investment Technologies, LLC (INTECH), which seeks to provide risk-adjusted excess returns (alpha) above the S&P 500 Index (the Index), with an equal or lesser amount of relative investment risk. The Fund will, to a limited extent, write (sell) call options primarily on custom baskets of securities that seek to track the return of the Index. Its investment advisor is Nuveen Asset Management (NAM), a wholly owned subsidiary of Nuveen Investments, Inc.

The Fund will invest its managed assets in a portfolio of common stocks from among the 500 stocks comprising the Index as selected by INTECH (the Equity Portfolio). INTECH will construct and manage the Equity Portfolio employing its mathematical process. Nuveen Core Equity Alpha Fund seeks to invest approximately 95% of its managed assets in the Equity Portfolio. The Fund will invest at least 80% of its managed assets in the Equity Portfolio. In constructing the Equity Portfolio, INTECH will employ its Large Cap Core strategy. The Large Cap Core strategy targets risk-adjusted excess returns for the Equity Portfolio (as distinguished from the Fund) over the Index of 3% to 4% annually. The Equity Portfolio will consist of a diversified portfolio of 250 to 450 common stocks included in the Index.

Nuveen Core Equity Alpha Fund may invest up to 10% of its managed assets in securities of other open or closed-end investment companies (including exchange-traded funds (ETFs)) that invest primarily in securities of the types, in which the Fund may invest directly and that have a similar investment objective! as that of the Fund. In addition, the Fund may invest a portion of its managed assets in pooled investment vehicles (other than investment companies) that invest primarily in securities of the types, in which the Fund may invest directly. The Fund may write call options on stock indexes or ETFs. It may invest in securities that, at the time of investment, are illiquid (securities that are not readily marketable). The Fund’s Equity Portfolio will be invested in liquid equity securities selected from the Index.

    Stocks to Watch Today: KHC, HD, JWN, M, AAPL
    Kraft Heinz Co. (NYSE: KHC) is still licking its wounds after an abysmal earnings report on Thursday and a weak 2019 outlook. The consumer goods giant is looking to reshape its business as consumer tastes continue to evolve. According to reports, the firm – backed heavily by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK.A) – is considering a deal to sell its Maxwell House brand. Warren Buffett is also affecting shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL). Although AAPL stock added 0.4% in pre-market hours, Buffett said he would not purchase more shares of the company stock at these levels. However, should AAPL stock pull back in the near future, the “Oracle of Omaha” would consider purchasing more. Earnings season may be winding down, but concerns about the U.S. brick-and-mortar retail industry are always high. This week, Home Depot Inc. (NYSE: HD), Nordstrom Inc. (NYSE: JWN), and Macy’s Inc.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE: GSK) has fought for its asthma drug Advair, including the patented inhaler, for a few years now. Now, however, it seems to be finally facing off against generic competition. Just a month ago, on February 8, GSK announced that it plans to make an “authorized generic” version of Advair available. This is likely in a response to the FDA approving the first generic version of Advair on January 30, and an attempt to save at least some of the $1.4 billion in annual sales.

Top 5 Blue Chip Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Sports and stocks go hand in hand.

Wall Street denizens often talk about slam dunk investments and describe the economic cycle as being in a particular inning.

So it makes perfect sense that there’s an ETF dedicated to the business of sports.

The ProSports Sponsors exchange-traded fund, which has the ticker symbol FANZ (FANZ), invests in companies that have business deals with the four major US team sports leagues.

Nick Fullerton, CEO of SportsETFs, the company behind the fund, said it was set up last year to take advantage of the popularity of team sports, which bring in big dollars.

Legal gambling, which is set to spread across the United States, could boost that popularity even more.

Fullerton was quick to point out that the companies in the FANZ ETF must have an actual sponsorship with a major league, and not just a naming rights deal on a stadium.

No CMGIs or Enrons here.

“These are blue chip companies with strong balance sheets and cash flow,” Fullerton said.

    Thursday was a largely down day for the stock market, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average taking the biggest hit of the major benchmarks. The global turmoil over trade got a lot closer to home as the U.S. imposed new restrictions that led the Canadian government to issue retaliatory tariffs in response. Yet many broader-based measures of the market fell only slightly, showing that much of what drives the economy isn’t as dependent on trade as traditional industrial giants. Good news also sent some key stocks higher. Madrigal Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:MDGL), Brink’s (NYSE:BCO), and Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.
