Top Five Best Stocks to Buy at 2021..buy and forget
An expected return for the broader market should materialize, with value, real economy stocks set to catch up. 2020 saw tech stocks lead the rally with a lot of the broader market not fully participating, reflecting the struggling underlying real economy. But with near-limitless cheap credit, expect property and housing stocks to do well and associated stocks such as the construction sector.
Retail has had a torrid year at the hands of Amazon, expect this trend to continue as traditional brick-and-mortar retail is stuck with high rents and large cost and logistics bases meaning they just cannot compete with the likes of Amazon.
