2 Stocks That Could Climb Over 40%

October 12, 2020 | technology | No Comments

Since President Trump was released from the hospital, following his bout with the coronavirus, the headlines have turned towards the possibility of a new economic stimulus package. On both sides of the aisle, there’s a perception that the public needs this – support for unemployment benefits, support for small businesses, more cash injected into the system – as a new wave of COVID cases starts ramping up.

The stumbling block is partisan politics. House Democrats put together a $2.2 trillion proposal, but it was loaded down with the traditional Congressional pork: plenty of funds for majority party pet projects, that would not likely get funded otherwise. Trump, with support from Congressional Republicans, refused to accept it. The Democrats refused to back down. Both sides are now refusing to negotiate. The media wisdom is, this is a political defeat for the President in the run-up to the election.

But, however the

(Bloomberg) — An expected surge in election-related volatility in the U.S. stock market is paving the way for Asian shares to make a run at besting their American peers.

Since hitting an all-time low relative to the S&P 500 on Sept. 2, the MSCI Asia Pacific Index has outperformed the U.S. benchmark by almost five percentage points. That nascent trend is expected to persist at least through the November poll and potentially beyond, according to strategists.

“There is a better than average chance that Asian stocks will outperform U.S. stocks over the course of the next month,” said Eoin Murray, head of investment for international business at Federated Hermes. “The volatility rise will be more pronounced in U.S. risk assets, and will pervade more globally but with less strength.”

The auto industry has had a rough go of it over the past few years. After a mini-recession resulting from the U.S.-China trade war sent auto sales down 1.4% last year, the COVID-19 pandemic put a big dent in sales this year as people quarantined and couldn’t get to dealerships.

Yet as people continue to avoid public transportation or ride-hailing companies, Americans appear to be turning to owning their own cars again, either used or new. After April auto sales were basically cut in half from pre-COVID February levels, auto sales have experienced a bounceback and have nearly recovered back to pre-COVID levels as of August.

Nevertheless, many automakers still face significant challenges, especially as the world turns to electric vehicles at an accelerating pace. That’s why the best way to play a recovery in autos may not be the automakers themselves, but rather these high-tech suppliers.

Boosted by fresh stimulus hopes, the markets have rallied this week. But the overall picture remains one of volatility and uncertainty. As yet no stimulus deal has actually been agreed, and with so many different factors at play (with the coronavirus vaccines, and upcoming elections) it’s not easy to pinpoint stocks poised to outperform.

Internet of Things stocks continue to see strong growth when it comes to market size. But from my observation, neither investors nor consumers have grasped just how large this market will become.

Year by year, more and more devices are linking up. That’s creating a rich web of connected devices, meaning an explosion in data, and therefore a need for faster internet infrastructure.

As a result, there’s an entire realm of growing stocks that are benefiting from the Internet of Things (IoT). It’s also a group that will continue to benefit from growth for years to come, particularly as connectivity infrastructure builds out and 5G networks become mainstream.

The Covid-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the way people are living their lives these days. This has led to a number of behavioral changes in the life of the average consumer, and one new aspect that has particularly gained importance is the use of zero-contact solutions. Consumers and businesses alike are looking to minimize contact with others as far as possible, whether through grocery delivery, healthcare, or payment solutions.

This “zero-contact wave” is likely here to stay for a while, and there are a number of companies providing solutions within this space that could heavily benefit from this new consumer behavior. Here are some of my picks.

Phreesia Inc.

The need for contactless healthcare services, particularly with the capacity of healthcare facilities being used heavily by Covid-19 patients, has pushed many consumers to telehealth providers. However, telehealth is not a solution for all kinds of healthcare
