  6. Thoughts on Travel and Tourism stock rebounds (11/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Disclaimer: I'm an idiot. Also, I have no current positions in any stocks mentioned in this post. I have been considering stocks that have been steeply discounted by the effects of COVID, namely CCL, CUK, NCLH and others. I am of the uninformed (but seemingly logical) thought that within the next 12 months, as world travel normalizes again, these types of companies should experience a resurgence of stock price. Currently, many travel/tourism based stocks are at 50% of their 5 year avg. value. To me, these stocks seem to be an obvious buy, but my DD tells me most these stocks are rated 'hold.'

  13. How come Cramer can't own stocks? (27/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I'm wondering why Jim Cramer can't own stocks, but other CNBC commentators can. For example, Josh Brown, The twin guys, etc advertise the stocks they supposedly own as they're commentating (CNBC puts the tickers in a box next to them). I can understand that maybe the reason could be that Cramer could pump certain stocks and benefit from that? But why wouldn't this rule affect the others also? So in reality Cramer doesn't own ANY stocks in real life? I find that a little hard to believe. Even if he "owns them indirectly through his travel trust", isn't that basically the same thing if he has interest in it? Couldn't he still tout stocks that are part of his travel trust?

  15. Stock market bargains: I’d snap up these shares now to buy-and-hold (16/06/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    A buy-and-hold investing strategy does what it says on the tin. It’s geared towards the long term, in that I would buy a stock and hold it for the foreseeable future. In theory, the chances of the stock price being higher in, say, 10 years is higher than over 10 days. Using this logic, I can hopefully generate even higher long-term returns from buying UK stock market bargains.  What’s a stock market bargain? It may sound a simple idea to only try and buy UK stock market bargains. But a bargain to one person might not be a bargain for me. This is because it’s subjective. When I invest, I like to try and take subjectivity out of the equation as much as possible. So in this case, I can try to set some parameters. For example, I can filter for companies with a price-to-earnings ratio that is below the average for the industry. I like to use the industry measure instead of the entire market figure. This is because ratios differ from industry to industry. Being more specific allows me to get a more accurate picture of whether the company really is a stock market bargain or not.  Another metric I can look at is the historical share price return relative to peers. If a stock has underperformed over the past year relative to the returns of its competitors, this could represent an opportunity to buy. The thinking here is that if I think the industry will continue to do well, I’d prefer to invest via a company that is potentially undervalued.  The risk with this thinking is that underperformance may be justified. The company might be struggling due to firm-specific factors. So although it could be a stock market bargain, I’d want to use several indicators instead of just this one. Long-term mindset Even with the FTSE 100 index up over 10% in the past six months, I still think there are good shares to buy right now. In fact, the buy-and-hold strategy helps me in this regard. Even if the companies I like take longer than expected to increase in value, it doesn’t matter. If I’m planning on holding the stock for a decade, the next few months is a small part of this. As a result, I’d look to buy shares in areas that have been hit hard by the pandemic. I’m talking about banking, travel, tourism, and similar areas. For example, take banks. Companies like Lloyds Banking Group and HSBC have underperformed over the past year when looking at a counterpart such as NatWest. So I could look to buy shares in these companies. Given the longevity of both these banks, I’m confident they will still be around in a decade or longer. Overall, if I can pick good stock market bargains now, then with a buy-and-hold mindset my returns down the line could be very attractive.

  21. What’s going on with the IAG share price? (23/07/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The International Consolidated Airlines Group (LSE: IAG) share has seen some serious swings since the pandemic started. Despite the massive blow to travel stocks from the pandemic, the FTSE 100 aviation giant did not hit rock bottom till October 2020. After a brief time as a penny stock, it was rescued by vaccine developments in November, and there was no looking back for it.  By April this year, it had reached a one-year peak of 217p. But has been sliding downwards since. It is now down by 22% from its highs. I think this is a good time to buy the IAG stock. In fact, I already did.  To understand why it can fly, I think it is essential to first look at why it fell in the first place. Four reasons come to mind.  4 reasons why the IAG share price fell One, the fall in the IAG share price has a bigger context. Many other cyclical stocks whose prices rose sharply after the stock market rally of November, have slipped too. I reckon as they became pricey, investors sold them off, leading to a share price fall. Two, fresh fears of the pandemic’s spread have rocked the stock markets recently. Coronavirus cases have been rising, especially those associated with the Delta variant. The FTSE 100 index even had a mini-meltdown las week, impacting all stocks.  Three, freedom day has finally happened in the UK, but it was delayed by a month. As a result, I reckon a potential stock market pickup has been delayed. And even now, we have been asked to exercise caution when outdoors, which could impact investor sentiment. Finally, rising inflation is bad news for travel stocks. Travel by individuals and households is a discretionary spending, which consumers reduce when there are other demands on their income. Inflation has rising in the past few months. If it continues to remain so, the travel demand may not pick up sustainably.  Also, fuel costs are a concern for IAG. Crude oil prices have run up, which will either be passed on to customers or absorbed by airlines at an already financially difficult time for them. Neither is a good solution for these stocks.  Why it can rise now But there is another side to these challenges as well. If investors are rotating their investment across stocks, it also means that eventually, their interest will return to the likes of IAG.  Also, there is evidence that even while coronavirus cases are rising, they are less severe now. In other words, vaccines are doing their work and travel can be safer. Further, many experts believe that high inflation will not stick around for much longer, so it need not impact travel companies significantly overtime.  My assessment Despite all this, the IAG share price is at less than half its pre-pandemic levels. Even accounting for the drag of the pandemic on its finance, I think the stock can start rising as travel becomes more routine again and improvements start showing in its financials. That is why I bought it. The post What’s going on with the IAG share price? appeared first on The Motley Fool UK. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner. But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared. What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

  24. This FTSE 250 stock still looks a bargain to me! (22/07/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The time to buy quality stocks is when they’re temporarily out of favour. I continue to think there’s no shortage of examples out there in the UK market. As luck would have it, one from the FTSE 250 (in which I’ve already started building a stake) reported to investors earlier today. FTSE 250 laggard Price comparison site owner Moneysupermarket.com (LSE: MONY) has stubbornly refused to get involved in the recovery in the UK stock market until today. Bar one or two flushes of positive momentum, its share price has been drifting lower for some time now. Today’s interim results provide some context for this.  Revenue sank 11% to a little over £162m in the first half of 2021. Pre-tax profit fared even worse, tumbling 31% to £28m. I pretty much expected this. Like many in the market, Moneysupermarket continues to be impacted by the pandemic and the ongoing impact on consumer behaviour. However, I think there are reasons to be optimistic. Moneysupermarket is still clearly generating a healthy amount of cash. Margins were up, as was the amount of net cash held by the company on its balance sheet. Holding the interim dividend at 3.1p per share was another encouraging move. Sure, I’d prefer payouts to be increasing. Even so, the fact that it wasn’t reduced is indicative of confidence on the part of management. Patience required Naturally, the recovery won’t happen overnight. The spike in Covid-19 infections, while expected, means the rest of 2021 could still be tricky for the FTSE 250 member. The markets in which MONY operates — insurance, money (that is, cards and loans), home services (like energy), and travel — are also “recovering at different rates“, according to the company. Even so, CEO Peter Duffy did say that he expected “more normal trading conditions” for the company’s markets next year. This may explain why the shares are up strongly today. I personally think we’ll see a dramatic improvement in revenue at MONY’s travel insurance arm as restrictions lift overseas.  At 19 times earnings before markets opened, MONY still looks like a bargain to me. I’d feel comfortable buying more today.  Another bargain? Another company that’s seen buying pressure this morning has been online pension provider PensionBee (LSE: PBEE). Like Moneysupermarket, this new-stock-on-the-block also released half-year numbers to the market today.  Helped by increased marketing, PensionBee has been attracting more people to its services. Invested customers rose 81% to 92,000 over the reporting period. Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised by this. Make of it what you will, but PBEE was named as a ‘Best Buy’ in five categories at this year’s Boring Money Awards. Most importantly, it seems to be hanging on to its customers. Retention rates remained at more than 95%. At £2bn, assets under administration (AUA) were also more than double that seen at this point in 2020.  Based on today’s numbers and the potential demand for online pension consolidation going forward, I wonder if the shares may turn out to be another bargain in time. Right now, however, I think it’s wise to keep my feet on the ground. PBEE remains loss-making (and won’t be profitable until the end of 2023, according to the company). That’s a long time to keep my money tied up in an illiquid stock.  Despite today’s encouraging share price rise, I’ll only be adding this promising small-cap to my watchlist for now.

One Killer Stock For The Cybersecurity Surge Cybersecurity is surging, with experts predicting that the cybersecurity market will reach US$366 billion by 2028 — more than double what it is today!

  30. 2 bargain FTSE 100 shares I’d buy now with £5k (06/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    I’ve got some cash to spare so I’m going to start scooping up bargain FTSE 100 shares.  Today I’ll  tell you exactly what’s on my shopping list.  The first thing I’m looking for is great value. I follow Warren Buffett’s tactic: “Whether it’s socks or stocks, I like buying merchandise when it’s marked down.” The current P/E average across this market is 21.3 and the average dividend income payout in the FTSE 100 is 2.3%. If my picks can beat these averages? I think I should be on to a good thing.  Bargain FTSE 100 shares: Aviva  British insurer Aviva (LSE:AV) was once top of most investors’ favourite bargain FTSE 100 shares list. But it disappointed shareholders when it scrapped its FY19 dividend in April 2020. Yet I believe in hindsight, it was the right choice.  In my eyes, CEO Amanda Blanc has done a great job of turning the business around. We heard this week that Aviva had completed the sale of its 40% stake in its Turkish operations for £122m. And Blanc has also disposed of underperforming overseas arms in Singapore and Italy to refocus on Aviva’s core markets. Dividends have returned too, albeit at a reduced rate. A 14p final dividend gives us a 3.4% yield at today’s share price. One risk is that Blanc continues to tighten Aviva’s belt and holds the dividend here, instead of adding the low-to-mid-single digit increases the City expects.  But on the price side, I see these as bargain FTSE 100 shares with a P/E ratio of only 7.7. I’m wary that if the UK economy doesn’t recover as strongly as expected, we could see medium-term weakness in Aviva, however. Overall though, I see this FTSE 100 company in a good position to grow. Evraz’s juicy dividend Evraz (LSE: EVR) offers up a 5.6% dividend, way above the market average. The next one is due to be paid on 25 June, with an ex-dividend date of 25 May.  The company is also unusual among FTSE 100 shares because it’s seeing extremely strong share price growth. In fact, it has added over 83% in the last six months and 161% in the last 12 months. I still think there’s far higher for this stock to go. While FY20 revenue dipped from $11.9bn to $9.7bn, FY21 revenue is expected to bounce right back to FY19 levels. And the company has forecast profits to double from $848m to $1.6bn next year. That’s an incredible leap for a massive multinational business. I want a piece of that.  A recent trading update highlighted some quarterly production weaknesses. And Evraz is suffering from the same supply chain problems as many other big businesses. So the share price could suffer in the short term. However, we also have a sector-wide rally in commodity prices. So Evraz is able to sell its iron and vanadium for higher prices.  Evraz could lose its bargain FTSE 100 shares status because of general market concerns over the environmental impact and sustainability of miners. It appeared in a recent study by sustainable finance manager Arabesque alongside Anglo American and BHP, which said these miners were producing CO2 emissions that could see damaging global temperature increases.  In conclusion, the market can ‘mark down’ stocks for a variety of reasons. As a contrarian value investor, I have to weigh up these reasons carefully to choose true bargain FTSE 100 shares with growth potential.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner. But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared. What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

  41. Southwest Airlines Stock (08/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Can someone explain how this stock is at an all-time high, after a year of significant losses, travel routes not completely back and won't be for some time, and even if leisure travel returns to where it was, business travel won't be back for a long time, if at all. With leisure travel at peak, the stock is above where it was. Any explanations?   submitted by   /u/SweepTheLeg_ [link]   [comments]

  42. The 2 best FTSE stocks to buy before the summer (25/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    There’s a saying on Wall Street — “sell in May and go away” — that relates to a belief that the sunny season is a bad time to buy stocks. Whether true or not, and although we’re only in March, I’ve got two companies in my crosshairs that I believe could be the best FTSE stocks to buy ahead of the summer months. And despite England just announcing £5,000 fines to all travellers in breach of Covid-19 regulations, vaccinations are proceeding as planned while the UK’s government leaders have also outlined a reopening plan. That’s why I want to talk about my two best FTSE stocks to buy right now, Ryanair (LSE: RYA) and Diageo (LSE: DGE). 1. Ryanair Not only a top airline share to buy, but a top FTSE stock too. I know what you’re thinking: “An airline stock? Now? Really?!?” But there is a reason behind my madness, especially when I see that Ryanair stock has risen 68% in the past year, as of market close on March 24. However, what makes this one of the best FTSE stocks to buy for me is its bullish sentiment towards a resurgence in airline travel to come this summer. This optimism was backed by chief executive Michael O’Leary, who announced a fresh batch of 26 destinations this week and plans to operate 2,000 weekly flights on 400 summer routes. When asked about travel bans, he reiterated that travellers should just book holidays: “If you’re fully vaccinated, I’d be very surprised if there was any legal basis for the UK government preventing people travelling on holidays to other European countries.” Although Ryanair is well poised for a return to travel, it is still highly unlikely that it will operate at full capacity any time soon. Should the worst happen and bans continue, Ryanair will continue to bleed millions of pounds, and will likely have to keep dipping into its €3.5 billion in cash-on-hand just to stay afloat, which would negatively impact its share price. 2. Diageo Diageo was always going to be one of the best FTSE stocks for me to buy ahead of 2021 following its impressive rally since last March. Yes, the beverage giant was hit hard by the closure of restaurants, pubs, and establishments around the globe, but its 19% rally in the past six months has not been without reason. At-home sales of alcohol have been carrying the flag for Diageo, with grocery sales in the UK surging 30% in January alone. These figures increase in the summer, but what I believe has not been factored into Diageo’s share price is the fact that massive friends and family reunions this summer will likely boost sales. What’s more, should vaccinations continue as planned, all restrictions across the UK will be lifted on June 21, marking a massive moment for Diageo. However, for Diageo to be one of my best FTSE stocks to buy before the summer, vaccine rollouts and restrictions need to go without a hitch. This is a big ask, and if lockdowns do continue throughout the summer, then Diageo stands the risk of losing millions worth in revenue for the second year in a row.

  45. FTSE 100 investing: 2 bargain buys I’d consider today (25/02/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    A slew of FTSE 100 companies have released their results today, but investors are not impressed with all of them. Curiously enough, this is despite their posting decent results or their long-term prospects. I think this makes it a good time to consider buying these shares at a bargain. Here are two of them.  #1. Hikma Pharmaceuticals: defensives drop The FTSE 100 drug manufacturer Hikma Pharmaceuticals (LSE:HIK) turned in a broadly robust set of numbers for 2020 today.  Its revenue is up 6% and operating profit has risen by 17%. It has also increased its dividend amount by 15%. Its earnings per share are down, but I would be more worried if this was reflected in the dividends, which it is not. Hikma is also optimistic in its outlook for 2021. Yet, its share price is down almost 6% as I write. I reckon this is for two reasons. One, defensives are out of favour. AstraZeneca, for example, is down 25% from the highs seen in July last year. Hikma too, has witnessed a broad share price softening since the market rally started.  Two, in my observation it sometimes takes a day or two before the results’ impact shows up on the share price. I think that might be the case with Hikma, though other explanations are possible too. For instance, its operating profit is below analysts’ forecasts. We will know more soon.  In the meantime, I think it is a good stock to buy. Actually, going by its financials, any time is a good time to buy it, but more so now when its share price is down. There is, of course, the risk that defensives will remain out of favour as stock markets stay elevated. That would mean that its share price could continue to remain weak.  But I see little chance of that happening.  Hikma shares have a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of around 10 times right now. As other stocks start looking expensive, I reckon investors will circle back around to the likes of bargain buys like HIK. #2. Mondi: FTSE 100 long-term play The FTSE 100 packaging and paper provider Mondi (LSE: MNDI) released its results too, resulting in a small share price drop. Both its revenues and profits have been impacted in 2020, but I think of Mondi as a long-term play. Its fortunes are tied to the online sales market, which is really the way we will shop in the future. Digital sales have boomed in 2020, acclerating the process. This has positively impacted companies from e-grocers like Ocado to warehousers like Segro. MNDI is no different, which could otherwise have suffered far more in a lockdown.  I think over time it will benefit even more. Investors clearly think so too, going by the fact that its share price recently touched multi-year highs. Moreover, its P/E is still at 11 times right now, indicating that it is a bargain buy compared to many other peers. I think it will start rising again.  The risk I see here is that MNDI is that it may take a while to get its financial act back together. Till then its share price could really languish.  There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! Don’t miss our special stock presentation.

  48. Stock market bargains: I’d buy falling UK dividend shares in July (02/07/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The FTSE 100 has posted a positive return so far this year, and trades around 7,130 points. However, this is below the level it was at in late 2019 before Covid struck. It’s also a fair way off the record highs in 2019 of 7,877 points. With this is mind, I think there are still some UK stock market bargains to be had. As we head into July, I’m looking to buy some dividend shares that tick this box. What makes a stock market bargain? A stock market bargain can mean different things to different people. I’d classify something as a bargain if the share price is trading at a material discount to what I think the fair value is. The beauty of investing is that my fair value is different to another investor. That’s why the market functions, as in most cases there will always be a buyer for every seller of a stock. I’m particularly looking for bargains in relation to dividend shares. These are companies that pay out regular dividends to investors. One of my investing aims is to generate passive income from my investments. This is why dividend shares play a part in where I look to invest. I’d want to buy such shares when their prices are falling. This could allow me to buy the stocks at a discount to their fair value. If so, I’d be happy that I’d bought a stock market bargain. A falling share price also helps boost the attractiveness of dividend shares as it increases the dividend yield. The yield measures the dividend per share in relation to the share price. If the share price is lower, then the dividend per share is a larger proportion. It therefore increases that yield. The higher it is, the more passive income I get paid for the same amount of money invested.  Falling dividend shares for July By looking at share price movements over the past month, along with the dividend yield changes, I can find shares of interest. For example, the Polymetal International share price is down over 8% in a month. As a result, this has increased the dividend yield to 6%, making it one of the highest yielding dividend shares in the FTSE 100. Another example is financial services company M&G. Due to the share price falling 7.88% in June, the dividend yield has risen to just under 8%! I personally have a positive outlook for the business, and so see this as a good opportunity to pick up a stock market bargain. As long as the dividend per share doesn’t change, I can lock in the yield through buying the share now. If the share price recovers to a fairer value, then I could gain from capital appreciation as well as the dividend element. Of course, I have to bear in mind that a falling share price might be a sign of something wrong at the business. Overall, stock market bargains are subjective. Yet when I look for good value dividend shares, there are some great options for July, in my opinion.
