Stock markets suddenly booming again, with the Federal reserve deciding not to hike interest rates again, and the fear of oil prices subsiding, investors
seem to have got their confidence back to pile money into the market. At the turn of the year markets were in freefall with China’s economy showing signs
Since then it’s all got a little more rosy. Earnings are up, investors are happy and new money is flowing into the market. Stocks are being bought once
again like no tomorrow and trend does not seem like slowing any time soon. Here are a couple of good stocks to look at, which may be suitable for your
portfolio. They have survived the worst of the falls and should be strong during any stock market strength.
First is a company we all know well and probably use several times a week. Social media giant Facebook (FB) keeps on growing revenues year after year, is
also growing its user base year after year and innovating like no tomorrow. Rumours are that Facebook is pushing really strongly to get into the Chinese
market, if they do that growth will explode from here. It’s the last huge market that Facebook has not cracked, and if they do Facebook stock price will
skyrocket. If you are ever going buy an Internet stock then this is one you should seriously look at.
An industry which is always in focus is the airline industry. People like to travel, for business, pleasure, and out of necessity. Boeing (BA) is one of
the largest manufacturers of aeroplanes, it’s a stock that should do really well over the coming years if oil prices stay low. Air travel is becoming
cheaper because of low-cost fuel, and as demand for air travel increases than the need for new aeroplanes does to. Boeing stock price benefit greatly as
airlines place new orders through higher demand. This is certainly want to get on board with before the market wakes up to this.
It’s a good time to look at stocks again because Warren Buffett stated in his annual letter to shareholders that the American economy is in good shape.
Even though short-term fluctuations don’t seem that way, his view is that compared two decades ago Americans do not realise how good they have got it.
He states wages are higher, standards of living a higher, and business is booming through new technology. He has got a good point and now may seem like a
good time to start buying stocks in, whether that’s the wall for the long-term or just for a year or two. Stock prices may fall if interest rates start to
creep high, but the Federal reserve has hinted strongly that they will not be any rate increases before the end of summer 2016. This should be a good boost
to stocks and everyone can profit from it.
