You don’t have to be a stock shark shorting stocks to make a profit. A simple strategy of buying and selling the best stocks will garner you a tidy return.
Consider buying these five stocks as we close out the year and predict stock performance for 2020.
1. AbbVie (ABBV)
This company makes the world’s best-selling drug, Humira. While it struggled a bit in 2019 due to a proposed take-over, it’s swung back into favor and is ending 2019 strong.
For those investors interested in dividends, ABBV’s 5.5% dividend is an attractive number. Buying was prime when the stock was at a steep discount in the $45 to $70 range. But you can still get a deal while it’s in the $80s.
2. Medifast (MED)
This health and nutrition company struggled in 2019 thanks to some deceleration concerns and website tech issues. But that 30% drop makes it prime for buying. It also pays a 5% dividend.
Look at the history of the stock; a significant investor had lobbied for changes. The company made them, and the investor sold for a healthy profit. That investor is now back for round two.
Buy now and ride the wave of profit.
3. Alibaba Group Holding (BABA)
If you’re not familiar with this company, it’s the Chinese Amazon. The stock provides a nice mix of growth and security, which will make even conservative investors happy.
The company dominates in China and has had a head-spinning growth of 48% annualized over the last five years. Experts predict that growth will be at about 30% in 2020.
4. Healthpeak Properties (PEAK)
This stock is actually a REIT or real estate investment trust. It lets investors have access to real estate by investing in the stock. This trust focuses on high-quality real estate in the health care market.
Some reasons to invest in this particular REIT is the 4.3% dividend, insulation from the market at large, and the company’s potential benefit from the aging baby boomer demographic.
5. NMI Holdings (NMIH)
This is another one of those stocks that aren’t popular or “cool”, but it should be. This mortgage insurer works in the real estate industry of helping buyers who can’t afford the 20% down payment.
The company’s revenues have grown at an impressive rate over the last five years. Considering its future predicted growth, its stock price is still considered a bargain.
