9 cyclische aandelen waarvan de tijd eraan komt

Under the traditional or commonplace definition, cyclical stocks are investments that are largely impacted by macroeconomic events. In a bull market, for instance, you’ll see Wall Street top dogs transition into cyclical sectors to advantage growth opportunities. Of course, with the incredibly disruptive novel coronavirus, all bets are off the table.

Or are they? To be sure, conservative investors will want to give their portfolio a healthy dose of secular names, or assets that perform reliably well irrespective of market conditions. And some of these investments, such as food-related securities, are acting very much like cyclical stocks due to their newfound relevance and momentum.

However, for those that can stomach a little risk, genuine cyclical stocks have an opportunity for potentially massive upside. Unlike other recessionary periods, the new normal was arguably not caused by an economic vulnerability. Prior to the pandemic, one of our fiscal headwinds was the U.S.-China trade war. Still, both sides were making headway until disaster struck.

Finally, keep in mind that the Covid-19 outbreak has not dampened our innovative or resourceful spirit. In some ways, the coronavirus has shifted our priorities. And these nine cyclical stocks to buy stand to benefit from this unprecedented transition.

WORK), Dropbox (NASDAQ:DBX), and of course Zoom Video Communications (NASDAQ:ZM). But I’m going to start off with a classic: Microsoft.” data-reactid=”53″ type=”text”>Shortly after the pandemic disrupted most Americans’ ability to make a living, the rise of a new set of cyclical stocks – the work-from-home sector – captured everyone’s attention. Logically, you can benefit from this phenomenon through trending names like Slack Technologies (NYSE:WORK), Dropbox (NASDAQ:DBX), and of course Zoom Video Communications (NASDAQ:ZM). But I’m going to start off with a classic: Microsoft.

While the other names I mentioned provide specialized solutions, in this crisis, it doesn’t hurt to have a jack-of-all-trades. But don’t say that Microsoft isn’t a master of none because that’s far from the truth. As a freelancer myself, I have always found the company’s products to be lifesavers. Yes, other competing platforms exist, but they don’t have the same cachet. Therefore, I love the long-term potential of MSFT stock.

Palo Alto Networks (NYSE:PANW) or Check Point Software Technologies (NASDAQ:CHKP). However, FEYE stock is rather attractive because of its low price and favorable fundamentals. Frankly, there’s never been a more crucial time for enterprises to protect their digital ecosystem. Thus, FireEye may benefit from a rising tide.” data-reactid=”72″ type=”text”>Don’t get me wrong: if you’re looking for cyclical stocks in this space, you’re better off with stable competitors like Palo Alto Networks (NYSE:PANW) or Check Point Software Technologies (NASDAQ:CHKP). However, FEYE stock is rather attractive because of its low price and favorable fundamentals. Frankly, there’s never been a more crucial time for enterprises to protect their digital ecosystem. Thus, FireEye may benefit from a rising tide.

Also, Morgan Stanley raised its price target for FEYE stock to $13 from $12. Although I don’t recommend blindly following analysts’ forecasts, they may have a point here. Plus, this is the best chance that FEYE has ever had for upside.

Blink Charging (BLNK)

Earlier this year, Blink Charging shares were barely above penny stock status. Admittedly, it got very scary following the initial attack from the coronavirus.

Since the March doldrums, though, BLNK stock has blossomed into one of the most compelling cyclical stocks to buy. What’s more remarkable is that in the past five years, shares were all over the map. Back then, electric vehicles represented only a small portion of automobile sales. And to be clear, that hasn’t changed much. What has changed is the attitude.

You see, the oil price falling below zero wasn’t just an unprecedented, though thankfully temporary calamity. It also was emblematic of a decided consumer shift toward cleaner fuel vehicles. Therefore, the much-discussed hype about a massive transition to electric now has credibility.

But what has practically prevented mainstreaming of EVs is infrastructure. After all, not every driver has access to a garage. That’s where Blink Charging comes into play with its network of charging stations. Thanks to the aforementioned consumer shift, BLNK stock should be a long-term winner.

Honda (HMC)

TSLA). Even if you don’t like the nominal price tag of TSLA, you could always opt for fractional ownership via platforms like Robinhood. That’s probably why gravity seemingly has no effect on Tesla.” data-reactid=”130″ type=”text”>If you’re looking to invest in the EV space, you should primarily focus on Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA). Even if you don’t like the nominal price tag of TSLA, you could always opt for fractional ownership via platforms like Robinhood. That’s probably why gravity seemingly has no effect on Tesla.

Still, there’s something to be said about going for the obvious pick. If you want to enjoy the advantages of cyclical stocks in the EV market but want something with perhaps higher profitability potential, you might want to check out Honda.

reliability. Also, many Tesla owners in the past have been frustrated with the company’s slow repair times. These misfires could provide an underappreciated opportunity for HMC stock as Honda prepares to go EV only from 2025.” data-reactid=”132″ type=”text”>As EVs become mainstream, I believe that consumers will expect more from their automotive brands. Though Tesla has a tremendous lead in the space, they don’t stack up too well in terms of reliability. Also, many Tesla owners in the past have been frustrated with the company’s slow repair times. These misfires could provide an underappreciated opportunity for HMC stock as Honda prepares to go EV only from 2025.

As everyone knows, Honda has built a longstanding reputation for reliability. It’s not that much of a stretch to assume it will apply the same principle to EVs. Also, Honda’s extensive dealership networks could provide far superior service for customers.

Of course, this is a riskier contrarian play. But if you prefer unconventional thinking, HMC stock could be your ticket to success.

Albemarle Corporation (ALB)

Out of all the high-probability cyclical stocks available, those levered to the EV market could witness the biggest gains. From true energy independence to environmental concerns, electric power hits the right notes for the emerging generation. However, picking individual EV players is fraught with risk. To mitigate the dangers to your portfolio, you may want to consider Albemarle Corporation.

industry leader in lithium and lithium derivatives, Albemarle essentially acts as an umbrella investment. At a certain point, you’d expect auto rivals to challenge Tesla’s throne. Though Tesla enjoys brand dominance, it can’t possibly sell to every American driver. For instance, the company is leaving open the economy car segment, which should see intense competition. And that just translates to higher demand for lithium, boosting ALB stock.” data-reactid=”161″ type=”text”>An industry leader in lithium and lithium derivatives, Albemarle essentially acts as an umbrella investment.

Newmont Corporation (NEM)

To be perfectly honest, cyclical stocks related to the gold industry have relied on an old but dangerous adage: “this time, it’s different.” Unfortunately, every time someone uttered this phrase following gold’s record-breaking move last decade, enthusiasm quickly met with disappointment. Nevertheless, I’m bullish on Newmont Corporation.

First, this time, it really is different. Though we’ve suffered pandemics in our past, we’ve never encountered one that forced state governments to shut their economies. Typically, gold rises on fear and uncertainty, and there’s plenty of that going around. Thus, with higher demand for the underlying commodity, NEM stock is finally enjoying a credible fundamental tailwind.

Second, the resurgent coronavirus is almost screaming the case for gold-related investments. Obviously, another round of state shutdowns will cause much calamity. With federal relief funds to support the unemployed about to expire soon, NEM stock could jump on the fear trade.

But the biggest catalyst could be the Federal Reserve. Given that no playbook exists for responding to this crisis, the central bank will probably adopt an inflationary policy. This could be the spark that sends gold prices to absolutely ridiculous levels.

Smith & Wesson Brands (SWBI)

crime went down during his first term, although many question the President’s role in this trend.” data-reactid=”215″ type=”text”>Not all rises in cyclical stocks are due to uplifting reasons. Case in point is the unbelievable growth in Smith & Wesson Brands. Ironically, SWBI stock didn’t do all that well under the Trump administration. First, the fear of Democrats taking away people’s firearms just didn’t exist. Second, crime went down during his first term, although many question the President’s role in this trend.

But now, the narrative has completely changed. The coronavirus exposed Trump as an effective leader only in good times. When the chips are down, he appears vulnerable. Unfortunately for him, this disaster struck on a pivotal election year.

Nu wetshandhavingsdiensten in de Verenigde Staten worden aangevallen vanwege landelijke oproepen tot gerechtigheid, hebben individuele burgers weinig andere opties dan het heft in eigen handen te nemen.

Sportsman’s Warehouse (SPWH)

Met een tweede golf van infecties die ons treft als een goederentrein, zijn we bijna zeker op weg naar een lelijke recessie. Ja, het Witte Huis pochte over recordbrekende banenwinsten in mei en juni. Het meeste kwam echter van laagbetaalde beroepen in de dienstensector die gedeeltelijk terugkeerden toen staten begonnen met heropening. p >

Dat is nu van tafel. Logisch, dat vertaalt zich in een echt lelijk banenrapport voor juli of augustus. En dat voorspelt niet veel goeds voor cyclische aandelen die op de retailmarkt zijn gericht. Beleggers moeten echter een uitzondering maken voor Sportsman’s Warehouse.

Nike (NYSE: NKE ) voor mijnwerkers. “data-reactid =” 244 “type =” text “> Vanwege het woord” sport “in de bedrijfsnaam zou je kunnen denken dat dit een sportkledingwinkel. Je bent niet ver weg. Ik bel Sportsman’s Warehouse Nike (NYSE: NKE ) voor mijnwerkers.

Kortom, het verkoopt wapens – heel veel wapens. Zoals ik al zei met Smith & Wesson, is dit een zeer populaire sector; vandaar de snelle stijging van de SPWH-voorraad.

Bovendien weet ik niet zeker wanneer het enthousiasme zal ophouden. Terwijl ik schreeuw om het ontslaan van de politie klinkt misschien goed voor sommige politieke fracties, ik ben er zeker van dat het de meeste mensen bang maakt. Natuurlijk zullen ze, vanwege de annulering van de cultuur, dat niet toegeven.

In plaats daarvan kopen ze wapens, daarom moet je kijken naar het kopen van SPWH-aandelen.

Canopy Growth (CGC)

Vanuit mijn perspectief hadden we het over het omzetten van een voorheen illegale markt in een legale en dus belastbare markt. Dus ik was enthousiast over Canopy Growth en CGC-aandelen. Uiteindelijk veranderde die opwinding echter in teleurstelling. “Data-reactid =” 273 “type =” text “> Toen Canada de eerste G7-lidstaat werd die recreatieve marihuana legaliseerde, waren er veel mensen – waaronder de uwe echt – dachten dat dit een transformatieve paradigmaverschuiving zou inluiden. Vanuit mijn perspectief hadden we het over het omzetten van een voorheen illegale markt in een legale en dus belastbare markt. Dus ik was enthousiast over Canopy Growth en CGC-aandelen. Uiteindelijk veranderde die opwinding echter in teleurstelling.

Achteraf richtte Canopy zich, zoals zoveel van zijn rivalen, bijna uitsluitend op groei. Helaas, de legale cannabismarkt in Canada was niet bereid om de uitrol aan te kunnen. Veel van de tegenslagen kwamen van de overheid, met name achterstanden bij het aanvragen van cannabislicenties. Ook bestonden er niet genoeg dispensaria in de veelgevraagde provincies, waardoor knelpunten in de vraagvraag ontstonden. p >

Maar dat is geen excuus voor de bedrijfsleiders in deze markt. Ze namen slechte beslissingen, die uiteindelijk investeringen zoals CGC-aandelen.

Het coronavirus kan echter controversiële cyclische aandelen zoals CGC een andere geven leven geven. In het bijzonder is de nieuwe norm zwaar geweest voor de geestelijke gezondheid. Hoewel er nog steeds onderzoek wordt gedaan op dit gebied, kunnen cannabis en niet-psychoactieve cannabidiol (CBD) biologische verlichting bieden.
