3 Blue-Chip Stocks Set to Make a Comeback in 2024
Saturday, 9 December 2023, 03:00:00
Investors look at blue-chip stocks for dividends and capital preservation. However, dividend stocks do not always trend higher. There are years or phases of price or time correction due to temporary industry or company-specific headwinds. For value investors, I see a correction in quality blue-chip stocks as a golden opportunity to accumulate. I am reminded of Charlie Munger’s idea of delayed gratification. It’s difficult to predict the time for a reversal rally. However, when it comes to total returns from these oversold stocks, they can be robust. My focus in this column is on three blue-chip stocks that are likely to make a strong comeback next year. I must add here that macroeconomic headwinds are likely to be sustained next year. By adding these top blue-chip stocks to the portfolio, investors can reduce the overall portfolio beta. Further, since these stocks already trade at a deep valuation gap, the downside is capped even if the market trends lower. Let’s talk about the reasons to be positive about these blue-chip ideas.
Got Fun Money? Buy These 3 Ultra-Speculative Stocks
Saturday, 9 December 2023, 01:40:00
After stuffing your portfolio with safe, stable stocks, prudent investors should also allocate a small portion to higher-risk, ultra-speculative names. Why? Because while they’re risky, these stocks boast huge upside potential if things break right. I’m not advocating recklessness here, but rather calculated speculation. We all hope to one day pick the next Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN ) or Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX ) early, banking 1,000%+ gains. Allowing 5-10% of a portfolio to be focused on moonshot bets creates those home run opportunities, without jeopardizing one’s overall finances. Now feels like an opportune time to go fishing for big scores. Yes, volatility persists, and markets remain choppy day-to-day. High inflation and interest rates absolutely warrant caution. However, I’m also seeing positive indicators that a soft landing is achievable, perhaps even in 2024. Robust U.S. GDP growth suggests underlying economic strength, while struggling Europe and China may “export” welcomed disinflationary pressure.

University of Melbourne Vice Chancellor evades Palestinian student’s questions about weapons manufacturer ties
Thursday, 7 December 2023, 20:04:38
The University of Melbourne’s Vice Chancellor Duncan Maskell refuses to answer student questions about a partnership with Lockheed Martin, an arms and defence company accused of supplying weapons used on Gaza’s civilian population. Dana Al-Shaer, a student at the university, repeatedly questions Maskell on the university”s partnership with Lockheed Martin, but Maskell refuses to engage in dialogue, saying it’s not his role to answer to students.
