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

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.

Renting Hotels for Big Events Is Dirt-Cheap … for Now

It’s no secret: Hotel ballrooms, boardrooms and rose gardens that once commanded big budgets for conferences, cheer competitions and wedding ceremonies have now been mostly vacant for months. For people still willing to hold events in 2020, venues are cheap and abundant. But event planners don’t expect things to stay that way for long — especially if (OK, when) coronavirus gets under control.

Event planners are imploring soon-to-be-married couples, corporate party planners and everyone else renting a hotel to jump on hotel venues now — even if the event is a long way out. Because pretty soon, finding available event rental space is going to become harder than finding a spare roll of toilet paper in March.

2 dirt-cheap UK shares I’d buy in an ISA today to start earning a passive income

Buying dirt-cheap UK shares to make a passive income could become increasingly popular for ISA investors. Many FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 stocks currently have significantly higher dividend yields than the income returns available on assets such as cash and bonds. They may also offer dividend growth potential over the long run that further increases their appeal on a relative basis.

With that in mind, here are two UK shares that appear to offer impressive income prospects. They could increase the income return within an ISA over the coming years.

A robust passive income from a defensive FTSE 100 share

National Grid (LSE: NG) has been a popular FTSE 100 stock among passive income investors in the past. The utility company’s defensive business model has meant that it has offered greater resilience and stability than many UK shares. This may make it increasingly popular at a time when the prospects

Stock market rally: 2 dirt-cheap UK shares I’d buy in an ISA for the new bull market

Global share markets have soared in value in recent days as hopes of a Covid-19 vaccine have ballooned. Strong demand for UK shares in the new trading week is pushing stock prices higher again. The FTSE 100, for one, is surging back to Wednesday’s five-month peaks of around 6,400 points.

It’s too early to claim the new bull market has begun. Certainly while Covid-19 infection rates continue to surge and a vaccine is still to be signed off. And also while other issues, such as Brexit and bickering over trade tariffs, rumble on in the background.

What’s pretty much definite though, is that the bull market will come. It’s simply a question of timing. And now’s the time for UK share investors to start thinking about what stocks to buy to get rich from the economic recovery.

If You Like Amazon, You’ll Love These 2 Dirt-Cheap E-Commerce Stocks

Few stocks have delivered the kind of returns that Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) has.

The e-commerce stock has gained more than 150,000% since its 1997 IPO, and the company is so powerful that it’s created its own shopping holiday, Amazon Prime Day, which major retailers like Walmart and Target, have mimicked, making it one of the biggest shopping days of the year in the U.S. For Amazon, it’s even bigger than Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

However, you might be surprised to learn that China’s Singles Day, the Nov. 11 shopping holiday celebrating the country’s bachelors and bachelorettes, dwarfs its American counterparts. 

While Amazon brought in an estimated $10 billion in gross merchandise volume (GMV) over the two-day Amazon Prime Day bonanza in October, https://www.digitalcommerce360.com/article/amazon-prime-day-sales/ Alibaba (NYSE:BABA), China’s biggest e-commerce marketplace, reported $74.1 billion in GMV over the 11-day shopping festival, and JD.com (NASDAQ:JD), the country’s biggest direct online

A dirt-cheap 7.7%-yielding FTSE 100 dividend stock I’d buy for 2021

Interest rates have fallen to new lows during the pandemic. The bank I use for my current account — a big high street name — now offers 0.01% interest on its savings accounts. In other words, just-about-zero interest. In this environment, I’m relying more heavily than usual on dividend stocks for income.

Today I want to look at a FTSE 100 stock that offers a 2020 forecast yield of 7.7%. As I’ll explain, I think this payout should be sustainable. It’s also a share I’d like to buy.

Much better than banks

The company I’m going to look at today is Legal & General Group (LSE: LGEN). The pension and insurance group has been a big winner since the financial crisis. L&G has delivered a share price gain of 150% over the last 10 years.

By contrast, the FTSE 100 has only gained about 10% over the same period, while

3 Dirt-Cheap Dividend Stocks With Above-Average Payouts

The average stock on the S&P 500 pays investors a dividend that’s normally no better than 2%. And with the index up by more than 6% this year, many of those payouts are even lower than normal amid rising stock prices. However, the good news is that there are still many dividend stocks that pay much more than that, allowing investors to get more for their money.

Walgreens (NASDAQ:WBA)Citigroup (NYSE:C), and Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) are among some of the bigger-name stocks out there that pay better than 2% per year, and each is a company you should consider adding to your portfolio today. Investors have been bearish on these stocks in 2020, which has made them absurdly cheap, and investing in them could set you up for some great capital gains in the years ahead.
