3 Cheap Real Estate Stocks to Buy in December

With the market up near all-time highs, it’s getting hard to find cheap stocks, but you can do it if you look in the right places. Right now, that includes retail landlords like Simon Property Group (NYSE: SPG) and Federal Realty Investment Trust (NYSE: FRT), as well as net lease player W.P. Carey (NYSE: WPC). The first two will probably take a strong stomach to own, but the third is a real estate investment trust (REIT) even the most conservative investor could easily love. Here’s a quick rundown on each.

A giant in the hard-hit mall sector

Simon Property Group owns around 200 enclosed malls and outlet centers. The coronavirus has not been kind to its business, with the REIT collecting just 85% of the rent owed in the third quarter. Funds from operations (FFO), which is like earnings for an industrial company, was off by 33% year over year

Stock market rally: I’d buy dirt-cheap UK shares today and hold them forever

There’s no guarantee a stock market rally will follow 2020’s stock market crash. However, the past performance of UK shares suggests it’s very likely to take place over the coming years.

As such, buying dirt-cheap UK shares now and holding them for the long term could be a sound move. It may enable an investor to make attractive capital returns as company profits and investor sentiment strengthen following a tough 2020.

Buying and holding dirt-cheap UK shares ahead of a stock market rally

A stock market rally could lift the valuations of today’s ultra-cheap UK shares. It seems likely to take place over the coming years, since every previous market downturn has been followed by a bull market that has produced new record highs. There may not necessarily be a fast-paced market rally in 2021. However, a buy-and-hold strategy could allow an investor to take part in a likely rise

7 Cheap Stocks to Buy for 2021 That Deserve Recognition

InvestorPlace – Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips

Investing in cheap stocks can seem fail-proof. And to be sure, the underlying logic is sound.

Early investors should seek out equities that are fundamentally undervalued, and others will follow as the strength of said equities becomes more apparent. Then the underlying equity rises in price concurrently with demand and investors benefit via price appreciation. 

But the world doesn’t work in such easily identifiable patterns. If it — or at least,  the investment world as a microcosm of the larger world — did, then Benjamin Graham would be all the rage on Wall Street. Further, many of the growth stocks that dominate our daily media headlines wouldn’t receive much investment interest, because these stocks are anything but “cheap”. 

Which leads me to my next point, or rather a question: how can investors objectively define a subjective term like cheap? After

How I’d find top growth shares to buy at cheap prices in December 2020

Taking the time to find top growth shares to buy at cheap prices could be a worthwhile move in the long run. It may allow an investor to take part in improving company performances, while benefiting from a potential increase in valuation over the coming years.

Through focusing on solid businesses operating in sectors with strong growth outlooks, but that face challenging near-term prospects, it may be possible to capitalise on the stock market’s future growth potential.

Identifying top growth shares in attractive sectors

Top growth shares are likely to deliver improving profitability in the coming years. That is because of the attractive prospects for the industries in which they operate. If they have weak operating conditions in the years ahead, they are more likely to record disappointing sales and profit growth.

As such, identifying industries with attractive growth prospects could be a sound move. This process may understandably be

Cheap Shares: 1 tech stock I think can double my money!

Cheap shares are hard to come by, but this tech stock is looking like a bargain to me. Why is that? Well, it’s all about the changing world we live in.

The pandemic has created a semi-permanent shift in the average working lifestyle. Due to safety concerns, many employees are now working from home. Yes, the announcement of multiple vaccines means the pandemic may be over soon. However, an estimated 25%-30% of people will continue working from home even after Covid-19 becomes a chapter in the history books.

That actually makes a lot of sense from a business point of view. Many employees can do their job as effectively from home. In that case, there’s no need to spend money renting costly offices.

Video conferencing tech stocks in the pandemic

Tech stocks like Zoom Video Communications have flourished under current market conditions. The sudden need for remote working solutions resulted

2020 stock market recovery: how I’d invest in dirt-cheap UK shares to retire rich

A stock market recovery from the 2020 market crash is likely to take place, judging by the past performances of the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250. They’ve always bounced back from their declines to post fresh record highs.

As such, buying a diverse range of dirt-cheap UK shares now could be a shrewd move. It may enable an investor to maximise their returns in a likely stock market rally. Doing so could improve their chances of building a nest egg from which they may retire earlier than previously planned.

Investing in dirt-cheap UK shares ahead of a stock market recovery

Despite showing signs of a stock market recovery in recent weeks, the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 continue to trade significantly down on their 2020 starting prices. As such, many shares are priced at low levels relative to their averages over the past few years.

Car insurance is fairly expensive for Rhode Island drivers. The average driver pays $1,300, about $300 more than the US national average, according to the Insurance Information Institute. There are some ways to save if you’re willing to put in a few minutes of work. 

Shopping around for coverage is the best way to make sure you’re getting the best price for you. Your premium, or the amount you’ll pay for auto insurance coverage, depends on several factors, including things like your credit score, the type of car you drive, how many years of driving experience you have, and even where you live in Rhode Island.

These quality stocks have dived since June. I’d buy these cheap shares today

From June, the FTSE 100 index zigzagged downwards, losing ground as rising Covid-19 infections worried investors. By Halloween, the Footsie had dropped 590 points — almost a tenth (9.6%) — as share prices drifted downwards. Then came a near-record month, with cheap shares staging a massive comeback and the FTSE 100 leaping by almost an eighth (12.4%) in November. However, not all stocks rose in this relief rally, with several quality companies lagging behind.

Bottom-fishing for cheap shares

From early June until today, 29 FTSE 100 members have seen their share prices decline. The worst performer has crashed by almost a quarter (24.1%), while the best of these 29 losers had its share price dip by just 0.3%. Overall, the average decline among these laggards is 9%, with 12 stocks recording higher falls than this. I see this ‘dirty dozen’ as fertile ground for bottom-fishing — finding unloved and cheap

“Verizon’s strategic position isn’t nearly so dire as AT&T’s.”

Verizon Communications

shares received a boost Wednesday from MoffettNathanson analyst Craig Moffett, who lifted his rating on the telecom giant to Buy from Neutral and changed his price target on the stock to $66 from $59.

His core thesis is that with the stock trading at just half of the broader market’s price/earnings ratio,

Verizon

shares (ticker: VZ) are “simply too cheap.”

Moffett isn’t exactly a raging bull on Verizon, but he does see room for the stock to gain ground from here, even as the company continues to lose market share to

T-Mobile US

(TMUS), which he continues to recommend. He also maintains his Sell rating on

AT&T

(T), which he sees as losing market share to both of its rivals and which is hampered by considerable leverage.

Moffett notes that T-Mobile’s combination

Stocks to buy, top defense & aerospace stock picks for 2021, JPMorgan

The defense sector has been one of the worst hit by the coronavirus pandemic, not least because of huge cuts to government spending. At the end of October, the sector’s average price-to-earnings ratio hit a 20-year relative low against the European market, according to JPMorgan.

But sentiment on the sector started to turn last month when UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the country’s biggest defense investment since the end of the Cold War.

Johnson has promised an extra £16.5 billion in addition to the annual budget, which is almost £41.5 billion, or $55.4 billion, for this financial year.

The announcement of the UK’s increased spending, combined with the outlook for Europe and the US, has fed into JPMorgan analysts’ positive view on the defense-and-aerospace sector.

As part of JPMorgan’s Europe and Global equity outlook released Monday, the equity analyst David Perry provided insight into the sector exploring the current
