4 Robinhood Stocks To Own In 2021: Visa, Johnson & Johnson, Disney, And Uber

NYSE: V | Visa Inc. News, Ratings, and Charts

Because the roll-out of COVID-19 vaccines has begun, hope for an economic recovery this year is in the air. However, the U.S. is still seeing the highest death toll globally, according to data aggregated by Johns Hopkins University. And Europe recently announced tighter and longer coronavirus lockdowns to control the spread of a new, more contagious, variant of the virus.

Amid the pandemic, the Robinhood app, which is known for its commission-free trades, saw an influx of investors, particularly millennials. For a stock to be listed on the Robinhood 100 list it must generate some buzz. So, not all stocks on the list are fundamentally sound.

Visa Inc. (V), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Walt Disney Company (DIS), and Uber Technologies, Inc. (UBER) are currently on the Robinhood 100 list, but not solely because of market hype. We think these stocks are strategically positioned to soar in the upcoming months based on their fundamental strength and market dominance. So, it could be wise to own these stocks this year.

Visa Inc. (V)

Founded in 1958, V operates as a payment’s technology company worldwide. It connects consumers, merchants, financial institutions, businesses, strategic partners, and government entities to electronic payments.

The company’s EPS is expected to increase 8.1% in 2021, 25.5% in 2022, and at a rate of 12% per annum over the next five years.
