Investing trends and outlook on 2021

As we’re stepping into the new year, we’re looking at markets and the investment landscape in search of sustainable stocks promising healthy returns increasing over time. A number of trends come into consideration here, a mix of political, economic, lifestyle, and consumer purchasing trends.

▌Analysts are predicting a slowdown in giant tech stocks, which had an excellent year in 2020, caused by the potential Trump administration’s antitrust litigation against Google (GOOG) and other tech giants.

▌Under Biden, the relationship between the US-China can potentially improve, there are big hopes for the Asian markets, specifically in China tech.

e-commerce continues to grow; Alibaba recently recorded $56 billion in Singles’ Day sales. Investor confidence is high as e-retail revenues are projected to grow to 6.54 trillion USD in 2022.

strong gains in computing and AI stocks so far in 2020 are likely to continue in 2021. Nvidia agreed to buy Arm Holdings for $40 billion as they seek to corner the AI market, and cloud computing continues to play a larger role in daily lives through technology used daily such as email, video streaming, and even social media.
