Over the past few weeks, AstraZeneca, Pfizer, and Moderna have given us a little bit of hope, reporting that their coronavirus vaccine candidates showed to be effective (although to different degrees) in phase 3 clinical trials. For the first time in a long time, there’s a light at the end of the pandemic’s tunnel. This time next year, the economy could be close to being back to normal.

Before the economy and struggling stocks completely recover, investors may want to consider buying shares of Merck (NYSE: MRK), JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM), and American Airlines (NASDAQ: AAL), which could be performing a whole lot better a year from now. Here’s a look at how these companies have been doing this year and why it might be prudent to scoop up their shares today.

Bargain hunting investors have a wealth of choice as the Covid-19 crisis disrupted many industries and economies which remain overlooked – and therefore cheap – despite the vaccine relief rally.

With an end to the pandemic hopefully just a matter of time now, global financial markets look set to boom while the optimistic vaccine news keeps coming,

A vaccine won’t mean previous life simply resumes though. People’s behaviour has changed dramatically, and countries have suffered severe social and financial shocks.

The business winners and losers will therefore be different when we finally reach the other side. That means, what is still undervalued now may yet come good during a recovery.

For those with a bias towards investing close to home, the UK is among the developed markets which remains cheap, and it is being heavily tipped.

InvestorPlace – Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips

Stocks can be cheap for a number of reasons and not all cheap stocks always offer value. Therefore, investors need to do due diligence to find bargain stocks that could also bring solid returns. Today’s article introduces seven of the best cheap stocks that also offer value.

Over 80 years ago, economist Benjamin Graham, who later inspired Warren Buffett, among others, first put forward the idea of investing in shares that sold at a discount to their intrinsic value.

Markets have had an incredible run-up since the lows hit in mid-March. Thus, it may feel as it there are no bargains to be found in the universe of robust shares. However, our markets are large and diverse enough to offer solid companies that are selling at discounts. Many such companies typically offer stable dividends, too.

Investors should ideally not overpay

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) admitted he was “cheap” after Fox News contributor Trey Gowdy jokingly said that “the box was more expensive” than a Christmas present he had been sent by the senator.

Graham agreed that he was frugal during a Monday night appearance on Fox News’ Hannity, with Gowdy, a former GOP congressman from South Carolina, filling in as host. Graham warned that if Democrats took control of the Senate by winning both of two upcoming Georgia runoff elections, it would be a “nightmare for conservatism” because, in part, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) would become chairman of the Senate Budget Committee instead of him.

Semiconductor giant Intel ((INTC) -Get Report) is under siege from outsourcing, so its execs are turning to Washington for help. If the gambit works, investors should sell Intel shares into strength.

Intel chief Bob Swan published an open letter Monday to President-elect Biden urging a big investment in domestic chip manufacturing. The idea jibes with Biden’s American-made push.

There’s a catch, though: Making more chips in the United States will not help Intel shareholders.

According to a report from the Semiconductor Industry Assn., US firms currently account for 48% of worldwide sales. From chip designs and manufacturing equipment to the complex software used to refine routing instructions, companies headquartered here are the

People assume that your public image matches the product or service you’re offering. How else could they gauge your quality if they don’t know you? The visible image should reflect the invisible. If you have a cheap or unprofessional image, the public will assume your product is likewise cheap and unprofessional. That’s not a good scenario if you’re trying to sell high quality.

Here are some of the ways your professional business is accidentally screaming, “I’m cheap!” despite your protestations to the contrary:

Let’s talk business cards. You have none. Or you have none with you— even at a professional conference. Or they’re free with another company’s ad stamped on the back of your card. With professionally designed business cards so easy and inexpensive to procure, there is no valid reason (other than cheapness) to not have a card that properly announces your high-quality services or products.

Thinking of traveling to England for Christmas? You’ll soon be able to cut your quarantine period by more than half — but only if you pay up to £120 for a COVID test.

Under the U.K. government’s new “Test to Release” strategy, which comes into force on Dec. 15, passengers arriving from countries with high infection rates can cut their quarantine from 14 days to five, if they test negative for coronavirus on the fifth day.

Passengers who choose it will need to book a test before travel and pay for it privately from a list of government-approved suppliers, with results usually provided in 24 to 48 hours. The tests are expected to cost between £65 and £120.

That works out at £325 to £600 for a family of five.
