Here’s why I’d buy these 2 FTSE 100 stocks in this market crash

first_img Enter Your Email Address I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” FTSE 100 stocks are crashing again today. Not a single blue-chip is in the blue, as I’m writing. It’s at times like this long-term investors should be snapping up bargain stocks.Certainly, there’s considerable fear in the market, and a challenging outlook in the near term. However, history shows that many stocks bought during such periods deliver high returns in the long run. As such, buying at discount prices today could even help you build a £1m portfolio by the time you retire.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…FTSE 100 stocks I’d buy right nowInvestors are spoilt for choice, with potential bargain stocks left, right, and centre. I’m particularly keen on strong businesses with trusted brands and a loyal customer base.With this in mind, Premier Inn owner Whitbread (LSE: WTB) and consumer goods powerhouse Reckitt Benckiser  (LSE: RB) are two FTSE 100 stocks I believe are brilliant buys today.Hard hitThe spread of the coronavirus has hit travel & leisure stocks particularly hard. Whitbread’s shares are trading at 3,350p, as I’m writing. They’re almost 30% down from their pre-crash level on 21 February, and 35% below their 52-week high.Undoubtedly, the company faces headwinds in the near term. Business and leisure travel are likely to be subdued for as long as the outbreak of the coronavirus lasts. However, I believe Whitbread is well positioned for both the near-term challenges and long-term growth.Value on offerThe sale of its Costa coffee business last year means its balance sheet is strong. That’s good for weathering a spell of near-term economic turbulence. It also has the financial headroom to invest in the growth of its primary business, Premier Inn, when other operators may be struggling. That’s good for its long-term growth prospects.Premier Inn is a much loved brand, consistently rated the UK’s best value hotel chain. It has further scope for growth at home, but is also intent on replicating its decades-long UK success in Germany. This represents a compelling long-term growth opportunity, in my view.The shares are trading at 15 times forward earnings per share (EPS) of 201p. The forecast dividend of 100.5p is robustly covered twice by EPS, and gives a yield of 3%. It’s rare for Whitbread’s shares to carry a yield as high as 3%. I see this as a good indication of the value on offer.Bargain stock #2Reckitt Benckiser’s share price hasn’t been hammered as severely as Whitbread’s. It stands at around 5,700p, as I’m writing. This is 11% down from its pre-crash level on 21 February, and 15% below its 52-week high.RB owns a strong portfolio of loved and trusted household brands in hygiene, health, and nutrition. For example, Dettol, Durex, and Enfa are the world number one brands in antiseptics, condoms, and infant milk formulas respectively. Sales of such trusted products tend to hold up relatively well through economic downturns – as do the share prices of the companies that own them.RB’s currently trading at 19.2 times forward EPS of 297p. The forecast dividend of 170.8p is covered 1.7 times by EPS. I view this as reasonable cover for a relatively stable business. The yield on the dividend is 3%. Like Whitbread, it’s rare for RB to be available at a yield as high as this. As such, I see RB as another bargain FTSE 100 stock to buy today.

Opening a Cash ISA? Here’s why I think you could be making a huge mistake

first_img Many people will be wondering what to do with their ISA allowance, as this year’s deadline looms ever closer. The stock market crash will deter some from investing in a Stocks and Shares ISA, and persuade them to play it safe with a Cash ISA instead.I understand that way of thinking, but for many people, opening a Cash ISA could be a big mistake that will cost them dear in the long run. You might be surprised to hear that a Stocks and Shares ISA may be a better use of your allowance right now.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…The big appeal of a Cash ISA during the current stock market crash is that your money is safe. While the FTSE 100 and other global indices have fallen by up to a third, any cash savings will not have fallen at all.Cash ISA returns are poorEverybody should have some cash, enough to cover six months of spending in emergencies like this one, held on instant access so you can get your hands on it quickly. But if you leave too much of your long-term savings in cash, you will regret it in the longer run.History shows that stocks and shares deliver a superior return to cash over the long run. You may suffer the odd stock market crash like this one, but in the longer run, shares are a far better way to boost wealth for your retirement.By investing in a Stocks and Shares ISA rather than leaving money to idle in a Cash ISA, you are getting exposure to  the fortunes of the UK’s top companies, and will benefit both when their share prices rise, and when they pay out dividends.Stocks and Shares ISA yields moreBlue-chip stocks typically yield around 4% a year on average, but in this crazy market, you can get as much as 15%. By contrast, the best easy access Cash ISA pays just 1.25%, a variable rate that is likely to fall in the near future, following the Bank of England’s move to cut base rates to 0.1%.Even best buy Cash ISAs are set to pay less than the rate of inflation, which means the value of your money will actually be falling in real terms.The stock market crash should actually tempt you to buy shares, rather than ignore them. Right now, they are about a third cheaper than before the Covid-19 crisis, which means you are picking them up at a relative bargain price.You need to be brave to buy in a stock market crash like this one, and should only invest money you will not need for at least five to 10 years, and preferably longer, to give it time to grow in value.In the longer run, current worries will pass, and share prices will recover. When that happens, you will be glad you chose a Stocks and Shares ISA over a Cash ISA.

Is this the end of the stock market crash? I’d invest in FTSE 100 shares regardless

first_img Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Global stock markets rallied on Monday amid hopes of the coronavirus outbreak beginning to slow. An investor’s first thought might therefore be: is this the end of the stock market crash? That could be followed by: might business activity return to usual sooner than some predict?The end of the stock market crashIt’s impossible to call. Nobody knows what a new week may bring. Of course, the end of the 2020 stock market crash will happen at some point. But nobody knows when. Despite this, I recommend a strategy that remains constant, regardless of whether the stock market crash will end in a month, or even next year.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…This would avoid the common pitfalls associated with trying to time the market while making it possible to snap up some bargains.Drip-feeding your investmentsThe conventional way to avoid the issues that come with trying to time the market is to invest regularly. Using this strategy, investors ‘drip-feed’ money in, rather than investing in one-off chunks.Drip-feeding a set amount of cash (say, £200 a month) into your investments means you buy more stock when prices are down and less when prices are up. To illustrate, when prices fall, this regular contribution buys more shares. Conversely, fewer shares are bought when prices increase.That means you won’t miss out on the bargains up for grabs in the market at the moment. But also prevents you buying too much stock when prices may have further to fall, potentially leading to you missing out on buying even cheaper stocks.Ultimately, you’ll still have cash to invest if the markets dip even lower.Invest in UK companiesSpeaking of bargains, many FTSE 350 companies are currently trading on dirt-cheap valuations. The FTSE 100 and the FTSE 250 have lost around 27% and 33% of their value respectively.That means a vast selection of good-quality companies can be picked up for great value in the stock market right now. I wrote about two I like the look of in particular here. And alongside investing in individual stocks, now could be a great time to buy one, or both, of the top UK indexes too.Looking at long-term charts showing the value of the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 overall, you’ll notice that after every major fall, the market soon rises.This illustrates an essential rule of thumb for investors. Namely, the stock market always recovers and shareholders can receive attractive returns for investing during the dips.Hold for the long termHowever, in order to maximise returns, you must be prepared to be in it for the long haul. Millionaires are rarely made overnight in the stock market.Investing genius Warren Buffet is testament to this. The majority of his wealth was achieved after he was 50 years-old! This was thanks to his investments being allowed to compound over time.All things considered, trying to determine the end of the stock market crash becomes irrelevant if you’re investing for the long term.That’s because your investments have the time to ride out the peaks and troughs in the stock market. All the while, you can reinvest dividends and allow for the process of compounding to begin.So regardless of whether the end of the stock market crash is here or is some weeks or months away, I’d continue investing in UK companies as usual. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Matthew Dumigan | Tuesday, 7th April, 2020 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.
