Its only February, but the Top 5 are already ahead of the curb!
For seven successive years ShareAnalysis has identified a top 50 list of stocks and refined that group into a Top 5 Stock Portfolio for Money magazine.
For 2019, the Mainstreet Team, using the ShareAnalysis fundamental research platform, has selected the following five stocks from a global universe of potential investments, to create its Top 5 Stock Portfolio:
- Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Co Ltd Class H (HKE : 338)
- Intel Corporation (NAS : INTC)
- Pfizer Inc (NYS : PFE)
- Facebook Inc (NAS : FB)
- Oracle Corporation (NYS : ORCL)
ShareAnalysis’ Top 5 Stocks for 2019 have already raced ahead of Australian and Global Benchmarks in their first month since the portfolio’s inception. A key standout is Facebook (US) which has seen a 20.6% increase in Share price. The Top 5 Portfolio as a whole has delivered 11.5% growth since inception, leaving the S&P/ASX 200 (Up 8.3%), eating its dust.
This is a prime example of the advantages in investing internationally whilst leveraging off of the new ShareAnalysis Global Research Database. Expanding investment Universes into global markets allows for a greater volume of viable investment opportunities which may result in a better return on investment than a closed minded approach towards explicitly domestic investments.
The Mainstreet Team started the portfolio with an initial investment of $113,304 after rolling on realised gains accumulated over previous annual Top 5 Stock portfolios. That initial investment for 2019 would today be worth $126,490. That’s a gain of over $13,000 in less than two months!
