Editor’s Picks – hot sectors and dividend plays

Using Dividend Stocks To Offset Inflation – 29/12/21

In the November reading, CPI inflation was at 5.1%. Even with the rate hike in December, a 0.15% increase isn’t going to stem inflation anytime soon. Therefore, one way we like to avoid the erosion of our cash funds is via investing in top dividend stocks.

3 Sectors To Invest In For 2022 – 30/12/21

Taking advantage of tech, value in the metaverse and utility defensive stocks

Stocks – a quiet week with eyes on 2022

Insignia Systems (NASDAQ:ISIG) 28/12/21

Insignia Systems has gained over 50% in pre market, rocketing from $12 to $17.50 right before open. The stock is currently number two on our short data. It has 57.7% short interest.

Stran & Co (NASDAQ:STRN) 28/12/21

We think the combination of these factors make STRN one of the top targets for a short squeeze. We also think that STRN is a top watch throughout next year as a market leader as a distributor of promotional products and branded merchandise. They are looking to explore accretive acquisitions and invest in sales and marketing initiatives.

Nukkleus Inc (OTCMKTS:NUKK) 30/12/21

We think the recently released earnings have shown positive signs for Nukkleus going froward. They are seeking great business opportunities and partnerships and are expanding their foundation within the digital asset space.

Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) 31/12/21

However, given the outperformance of other major NASDAQ names, 12% feels more akin to a benchmark return rather than any real outperformance. After touching $700 in Q4, shares now trade back close to $600. Here’s why we think that a return to $700 could be on the cards next year.

Crypto – struggling for conviction

Ethereum (ETH) 27/12/21

Overall, momentum lacks any real drive currently for ETH. We’d argue that as long as the 100 DMA holds, the next move is to the upside, to target $5,000. However, in the short term, we feel $4,400 needs to be taken out to support this forecast. If it doesn’t, then a break below $3,650 opens up the trapdoor to have a look at $3,000.

Bitcoin (BTC) 28/12/21

The major coin, BTC, was down 5.5% over the past 24 hours, seeing a 40% surge in volume. The break below $50k likely accelerated the move lower with stop losses being triggered just below this level. We flagged up the importance of $50k in a TechTalks piece here. The break lower in BTC is one of the key reasons for the rest of the market following suit.
