Stock picks September 2021
Raiz is a promising start up. Millennials are pushed further away from real estate investment with prices exploding during COVID in some locations. On the ASX the minimum investment amount is AUD $500 in Australia, this alone is gate keeping investment for people new to the work force or without cash. Raiz offers an alternative to traditional shares investment using micro amounts. The company has a goal, a vision and a mission. Their team is diverse and they are going international with the recent appointment of a Co-CEO to expand to the US. Even though the minimum investment amount is only a few cents, they might partner up with similar apps or broaden their offer soon. Those are strong positive indicators that this company is going places.
It’s been a while since I recommended any new trade. With the current situation happening around the world I was waiting for the right window to buy. Below are stocks I recently bought.
Stock picks February 2021
Pfizer Inc.NYSE: PFE at USD 34.77
Pfizer manufacture COVID-19 vaccine. Many countries, including Australia, ordered millions of dozes of the vaccine and plan to buy more over the next 5 years. It is one of the most effective vaccine commercialized at the moment. Even though other drugs produced by Pfizer did not perform as well as expected this year, I believe that the vaccine will carry Pfizer value over the next 5 years.
Microsoft Corporation NASDAQ: MSFT at USD 243.77
Microsoft has a wider range of services in its cloud offering. Their products improved a lot since Satya Nadella became CEO. I think now is a great time to invest in Microsoft as the stock price is affordable and Microsoft has some amazing projects in the pipeline.
Crowdstrike Holdings Inc NASDAQ: CRWD at USD 223.72
Cloud security is becoming tremendously important nowadays. Working in a large company, I see it everyday. Crowdstrike developed a range of powerful softwares that are leading the market. We need to keep an eye on their board as its potential can attract the wrong crowd.
HPG: Hipages had their IPO and launched on the ASX earlier this month. It was introduced at $2.45 per share. We think it might go lower for a while but eventually it will become a great stock. Tradies represent a large part of the working class and they deserved to have a unified system to book jobs and make transactions with customers easier. Hipages does that really well.
