Which stocks to buy in 2018

It is 2018! It is time to invest. There are tons of shares available in U.S stock markets. Which shares should I buy this year? Here are some recommended stocks.

Facebook (FB)

Who doesn’t know Facebook ? Everyone has Facebook , right? Mark Zuckerberg-owned social is still one of the most recommended stocks to buy, along with Alphabet (GOOG,GOOGL). Facebook ’s profit will continue to grow, thanks to the increase in the numbers of users. Most business owners rely on Facebook to promote their products and services. According to the data from Facebook (published on Zephoria), there were over 2.07 billion active Facebook users in the third quarter of 2017, a 16 percent rise year over year.

The numbers of business pages created on Facebook rose 100 percent in May 2013 (16 million) from the same period in the previous years. Those figures show how vital Facebook is in everyone’s life.

Ryanair Holdings PLC

Despite the pilot shortage that forced the Dublin-based airline to cancel 20,000 flights, the air carrier still rules the sky and will likely post high-profit in the fiscal year of 2018. Analysts predict that the company’s business will keep improving in 2019, thanks to Ryanair’s 129 million customer base. Also, three of its competitors (Monarch, Air Berlin , and Alitalia) went bankrupt in 2017, benefiting Ryanair as the world’s leading air-carrier.

Five Below Inc

Most retailers have decided to close their stores due to the decline in sales. Five Below is still one of the most favourite outlets for teenagers who want to buy fancy stuff for less than $5.

Despite the growing online shopping activities, Five Below Inc is planning to increase its store count by 20 percent (By the end of October, it has 625 outlets).

Sales of Five Below in the holiday season jumped to 6.7 percent, contributing to the overall revenue’s 26.7 percent increase to $442.6 million. This figure was the retailer’s highest sales since the company went public in 2012, said the CEO, Joel Anderson.

General Electric

Despite reporting a decline in the revenue in the fourth quarter of 2017, General Electic is optimistic about the 2018 outlook. CEO John Flanery is reshaping the company’s policy to focus on cash flows, capital allocation, and accountability.


Everyone loves this traditional footwear. The company is trying to rejuvenate the brand to help to recover sales after it closed some of its weak outlets and dumped some loss-making distributors in China. Moreover, Crocs is capable of redesigning its distribution and boost its overall efficiency.

The company’s earnings right before taxes, interest, amortization and depreciation (EBITDA) in 2018 is estimated on the right track, and is expected to double its 2016 level. These achievements, combined with significantly low investor expectations starting last year produced the 83% gains year-to-date.
