How I’d aim to find the best shares to buy in today’s stock market rally

Enter Your Email Address I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. These are just a few of the factors to consider when looking for the best shares to buy in today’s market. This won’t shield me from a short-term stock market crash. Because, when that happens, good companies are typically sold off with the bad.However, by choosing wisely, I hope to come out on top over the longer term. Stock markets always recover from a crash, given time, but some shares recover faster than others. Finding the best shares to buy in the current stock market rally isn’t easy. Some companies have flown over the past year and are now starting to look overvalued. Nobody wants to jump on board a momentum stock just as it runs out of steam.Even though the FTSE 100 now trades above 7,100, I still reckon it’s possible to pinpoint a spread of the best shares to buy today, without overpaying. I’d look for companies with healthy long-term growth prospects throughout the investment cycle.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…I’d start by making a beeline for unpopular sectors. These may have fallen out of favour, for all sorts of reasons, but could swing back as bargain-seekers spot an overlooked opportunity.Is Glaxo one of the best shares to buy?Ironically, given we’re still in the middle of a pandemic, pharmaceutical stocks appear to be out of favour. GlaxoSmithKline now trades at a bargain 11.6 times earnings, but yields a thumping 5.92%. To me, it looks like one of the best shares to buy on the FTSE 100, provided you can hold long-term and are willing to be patient. I really like buying high-quality companies trading at discounted prices.We’re looking for the best shares to buy, so I favour companies with strong, healthy balance sheets and low net debt. I also look for hidden nasties, such as hefty company pension liabilities, which weigh down companies such as BT Group, BAE Systems and Centrica.Sectors swing in and out of favour. Last year, banks and oil companies suffered as the economy floundered and people stopped travelling. However, they’ve been two of the best performers last year as vaccines hopes rise. But bargains are harder to find. For instance, the Lloyds Banking Group share price is up two thirds in just six months. Investors also have to decide how much risk they’re willing to bear. The Rolls-Royce share price has been hit hard by the pandemic. That could make it one of the best FTSE 100 shares to buy today, but its troubles could worsen if the world doesn’t resume flying soon.There are still bargains on this FTSE 100While I look at valuations such as the price/earnings ratio, I’d handle with care. A stock may look cheap, but it could face hidden challenges, such as a new competitor on the block. It’s also worth seeing whether they’ve a wide economic moat, such as a strong brand or product, to cement their market position. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image: GlaxoSmithKline Harvey Jones has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

He made his comments in the first of a series of online meetings being held in advance of the United Nations’ COP26 climate change conference in Glasgow, Scotland, later this year. Welby said that “the relationship between science and faith presents us with a very real and a powerful route to lasting, major change. Our global reach, our commitment to local communities and our hope combined with the knowledge and expertise of science can forge a powerful alliance.”He welcomed United States President Joe Biden’s decision to resume America’s commitment to the Paris Accord and said: “I speak as a Christian. Jesus teaches us that there are no greater commandments than to love God and love our neighbor. To abide by those commandments as a Christian today is to step up to the challenge of climate change and connected environmental crises.”Read the entire article here.

ITM Cup in New Zealand – Highlights from Round 5

first_imgMonday Aug 30, 2010 ITM Cup in New Zealand – Highlights from Round 5 There have been quite a few requests for more tries from the ITM Cup in New Zealand, so today here is a package that is ten minutes long and features the best moments from every New Zealand provincial championship game of the weekend.Starting on Thursday, Taranaki made it four from four as they beat Otago 25-15 in Dunedin. Both sides scored some good tries but Otago failed to get off the bottom of the table as theyre still winless so far.On the opposite end of the table, Southland continued their fine form as they beat Tasman 21-16 with fullback Robbie Robinson kicking seven penalties. Tasman snuck a bonus point at least, kicking a penalty with time up on the clock.Waikato scored some nice tries as they powered over Counties Manukau with a convincing 39-3 win in Hamilton. The game was finely balanced at 7-3 at the halftime break, but Waikato stretched their legs in the second, playing some great rugby.The Wellington and Northland game was a little closer, with the latter taking a 31-28 win in which the impressive Rene Ranger featured prominently. Some sensational tries were scored by both sides, but Victor Vitos for Wellington would probably pick up the try of the game award.Canterbury got off to a great start and followed through, eventually winning 35-16 in their match with Auckland in Christchurch. In Rotorua, Hawkes Bay were to good for Manawatu as they cane out 17-9 winners, while North Harbour won 39-29 against Bay of Plenty in an entertaining match in Rotorua.The quality of these highlights isnt fantastic, but the quality of the rugby is never in question. Sit back and enjoy a total of ten minutes of tries as each game of the round is recapped. If there is anything in particular that you spotted on the weekend that you think should be featured as an individual post.
