Autumn is a time when the stock market often comes alive again. Some of the top UK stocks are already busy over the summer, from consolidated negotiations to profit improvement. The next few months may even see an acceleration of this insane contract activity.
If I have to put £ 1,500 in the top stocks in the UK now, here are three I would consider buying. To diversify, I would spread my money evenly among the three and invest £ 500 in each.
Retail success stories with opportunities for expansion
Although much has been focused on investors Morrison Or Tesco, They are not the only successful UK retailers.
Variety store chain B&M (LSE: BME) has recorded some stellar performances in recent years. Last year, for example, earnings per share more than doubled. Nevertheless, the shares continue to express mixed feelings. Some analysts are concerned that demand is a single phenomenon that will not be repeated when the B&M UK store is open during the lockdown.
But the company has set mandatory inventory and pricing, which seems to appreciate its customer base. Reducing the occupancy rate on high roads allows for chain expansion and may even lead to lower fares. The purchasing power of the company enables it to achieve strong margins. Last year’s B&M profit rate was 8.9%, compared to 1% at Morrison and 1.3% at Tesco, for example. I think the long-term growth story of B&M will continue-the chain has upgraded a profit this month. I will consider adding B&M to my portfolio today.
Digital star among top UK stocks
As a longtime bull in the digital advertising agency S4 Capital (LSE: SFOR), I’ve been seeing confusing share price performance lately and wondering if the positive momentum is sustainable. This is back from the all-time highs reached earlier in the week, but still the share price of S4 Capital has more than doubled compared to last year.
Nevertheless, I will consider adding to my position. The company’s appetite for acquisitions continues, with it announcing last week that it will buy technology services company Jemoga. In its interim results this month, the S4 has increased its equivalent gross profit guidance for the third time this year. The company now expects 40% organic growth for the year. Add to that his acquisition and the total increase should be higher.
I see a risk in heavy exposure to technology – any downturn in technical spending could hurt the S4’s revenue. But I have a buyer for my portfolio.
Defeats the consumer giant
I will consider buying top UK stocks to talk about in my portfolio for the next few years Racket. Its shares have fallen 21% in the past year. They have damaged the earnings of low-quality child formula businesses as well as caused anxiety and reduced business profits.
I think the sale has stopped. Reckitt is working to address the challenges of his child formula business. It has agreed to sell most of the formula business in the main Chinese market. Meanwhile, the company’s brand premium portfolio e.g. Dettol It gives price power and a wide footprint. I see price declines as buying opportunities for my portfolio.
