Best Stocks to Buy Now October 2021

The hard part is finding them.

At MAPsignals, that’s where we focus.

And this month we look at my best stocks to buy now for October 2021. Keep in mind, I like to use a lot of data in my process and this isn’t personalized advice.

For MAPsignals, we focus on Big Money buying the best stocks. We find that oftentimes how a stock trades can alert you to the forward fundamental picture more than just looking at a company’s financials. I like the odds in my favor when looking for the highest quality stocks.

Up first is Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), which is a leading semiconductor company. They have been trucking higher for years.

When we decide on the strongest candidate for long-term growth, we consider many fundamental and technical considerations.

Here we see good 3-year sales and earnings growth. Just for fun, juice is good, so-so is ok, and not ideal is underwhelming:

Best Stocks for August 2021

Outlier stocks are the ones that account for a lion’s share of the gains of the stock market. One thing they have in common is the same ones keep appearing. These 5 were on that list.

Great quality stocks have a few things in common. I focus on the following key fundamentals:

  • 1 Year Sales Growth
  • 3 Year Sales Growth
  • 1 Year Earnings Growth
  • 3 Year Earnings Growth
  • Profit Margin
  • Debt/Equity

Big Money Outliers meet strict criteria. All of these 5 stocks have great growing sales, earnings, and profits.

The real test is if Big Money is buying the stocks. By finding the ones most frequently on the Top 20 report, we get a quick filter for the best of the best. In order to even get on one instance of a MAP Top 20 report, the stock needs to have superior fundamentals and get some Big Money Buy Signals. The Top 20 stocks are the best 20 out of over 6,000 every week.

So, when they appear frequently over just six months, it means it has great potential.

So, let’s dive into the best potential outlier stocks to buy for August 2021. On this list we have one established outlier and 4 maturing stocks. The ones maturing are where we find potential undervalued future outliers. In summer volatile months, it can be a good time to size up stocks under a little pressure.

Up first is D.R. Horton, Inc. (DHI) which boasts great fundamentals (source FactSet) and big money buying:

Up next is the ailing Tencent Music Entertainment Group (TME). The stock has been punished starting in February from the Archegos blow-up. Recent Chinese IPO and regulation fears have amped up selling. It’s pushed this strong grower down to incredibly cheap levels. The Chinese population will not stop streaming music because of a few scary headlines. Check out these numbers (source FactSet):

And there we have it. A great quality-stuffed list of the best potential outliers for August of 2021.

The way I found these stocks was fairly simple. I used MAPsignals.com to make the quantitative analysis of mounds of daily stock data fast and simple. Looking back at 30 years of outliers shows me 2 clear things:

  1. Outliers keep appearing time and time again.
  2. When they do, those can be winners for years to come.

When Big Money is buying the best quality stocks, we should always take notice. But when they become outliers, that’s where the big potential winners are.

The Bottom Line

DHI, CELH, TME, CALX, & BRKS represent the best stocks for August 2021. Based on strong fundamentals and Big Money buy signals year after year, these are worth further investigation.

Celsius Holdings: Big Money Is All Over This Stock

So, what’s Big Money? That’s when a stock goes up in price alongside chunky volumes. It’s indicative of institutions betting on the shares.

Smart money managers are always looking for the next hot stock. And Celsius has many fundamental qualities that are attractive.

This sets up well for the stock going forward. But how the stock trades is what points to more upside. The Big Money has been crazy about the shares this past year.

You see, fund managers are always looking to bet on the next outlier stocks…the best in class. They spend countless hours sizing up companies, reading reports, speaking to analysts…you name it. When they find a company firing on all cylinders, they pounce in a big way.

That’s why I’ve learned how critical it is to gauge Big Money demand for shares. To show you what I mean, have a look at all of the big money signals CELH has made the last year.

Last week there was one too. Each green bar signals big trading volumes as the stock ramped in price:

In 2021 alone, CELH made 8 of these rare signals. Generally speaking, that means more upside is ahead.

Now, let’s check out a few technicals grabbing my attention:

  • 1 year outperformance vs. market (+608% vs. SPY)
  • 1 year outperformance vs. Staples ETF (+626% vs. XLP)

Outperformance is huge for leading stocks.

Next, it’s a good idea to check under the hood. Meaning, I want to make sure the fundamental story is strong too. As you can see, Celsius has been growing sales at a breakneck pace. Take a look:

  • 3-year revenue growth rate (+54.09%)
  • 3-year earnings growth rate (-23.06%)

Marrying great fundamentals with technically superior stocks is a winning recipe over the long-term.

In fact, Celsius has been a top-rated stock at my research firm, MAPsignals, multiple times the last year. That means the stock has buy pressure, strong technicals, and growing fundamentals. We have a ranking process that showcases stocks like this on a weekly basis.

CELH has been a constant Big Money favorite since 2020. And since its first appearance on this report, it’s up +369%:

Let’s tie this all together.

Celsius Holdings continues to fire on all cylinders technically and fundamentally. With many high-quality growth stocks beginning to breakout with Big Money, I like the long-term story of the stock.

The Bottom Line

The Celsius Holdings rally likely has further upside. Big money buying in the shares is signaling to take notice. Shares could be positioned for a bounce soon. Given the historical gains in share price and strong fundamentals, this stock could be worth a spot in a growth-oriented portfolio.
