2022 is here, and you are asking yourself “which stocks should I buy now in 2022?” or "which stocks should I buy now January 2022?". I’ve got you covered. Today, I am bringing you 12 stock picks for 2022 and the next decade. I am providing a variety of secular growth stock trends to consider, from cloud services, cybersecurity, and electric vehicles, to metaverse, artificial intelligence, fintech, big data analytics, and more! Many of the stocks on the list have been beaten down from previous highs, and I believe each is positioned well for 2022 and the next several years. These stock picks are not in any particular order.
Here are a dozen stocks to buy now in January 2022...to ride the secular growth waves of 2022 and beyond!
1. Cloud Services and E-Commerce
Here are the five primary reasons I believe Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) should rebound in 2022: Record holiday sales, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Amazon Marketplace, Infrastructure and employees, Lagging performance is historically part of a trend.
2. Cybersecurity and SaaS
The next stock pick is KnowBe4 (NASDAQ: KNBE), a security awareness training company that simulates phishing attacks to educate employees and prevent social engineering cybercrime.
3. International E-Commerce and Fintech
Digitalization is accelerating in all parts of the world. Can we take advantage of this secular growth trend as investors? Global internet access, adoption, and digitalization are rapidly increasing, and the number of digital buyers continues to climb annually. MercadoLibre (NASDAQ: MELI) is a great way to invest in Latin America, and its stock is priced attractively after a recent correction.
The metaverse is unquestionably the hottest stock market topic in recent months. One of the first names that comes to mind is Roblox (NYSE: RBLX). Roblox is a platform that brings players and developers together. The company's mission is to enable billions of people from across the globe to have fun, learn, and play. Roblox is built on a strong foundation of millions of developers who produce immersive "experiences" using Roblox Studio.
5. Artificial Intelligence
Upstart (NASDAQ: UPST) is down well over 50% from its recent high of $401.49. This red-hot stock is an AI lending platform that works with banks to disrupt traditional lending practices such as FICO scores.
6. Reopening Stock
I wanted to include a potential “reopen” play, and Everi Holdings (NYSE: EVRI) fits the bill. This is a slot machine jackpot stock!
7. Semiconductors - "The New Oil"
I have been calling semiconductors "the new oil" since August of 2020. Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) has been a leader in the sector, but will its outperformance continue? It's easy to see why some investors would shy away from Nvidia at these levels. Nvidia has its hands in nearly every secular tailwind imaginable: Data centers, Cloud computing, Cybersecurity, Space exploration, Video gaming, Online sports bets, Augmented reality (AR), Virtual reality (VR), Mixed reality (MR), Autonomous driving, Electric vehicles, Genomics, Esports, 5G, E-commerce, Cryptocurrency, Artificial intelligence (AI), Metaverse, and Big data.
8. Cashless and Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL)
PayPal (NASDAQ: PYPL) is an online payments platform that enables users to send and receive money digitally worldwide.
SoFi Technologies (NASDAQ: SOFI) is a one-stop shop for all things banking and personal finance. From stock investing, crypto, credit cards, and student loans, to auto loans, home loans and more, SoFi is a fintech play that has great long-term potential.
10. Big Data, Analytics, and Cybersecurity
Palantir (NYSE: PLTR)
11. International E-Commerce, Gaming, and Fintech
Sea Limited (NYSE: SE) is what I like to call a three-headed monster. The holding company consists of: Garena (esports and mobile gaming), Shopee (e-commerce), SeaMoney (financial technology).
12. Electric Vehicles and AI
I believe Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) is the top high-growth artificial intelligence company in the world.
