13 Cheap New Stocks To Buy

In this article, we will take a look at the 13 cheap new stocks to buy. To see more such companies, go directly to 5 Cheap New Stocks To Buy.

Global markets were rattled by the market crash of 2022 whose reverberations are expected to affect equities for several months to come. However, prudent investors always invest for the long term and an equities downturn is perceived by them as an opportunity. While there’s a consensus that the world will see a recession in 2023, major analysts believe it’ll be a short one. For example, JPMorgan said in its 2023 market outlook report that the global economy is expected to see “substantial” improvement in inflation levels  and a pause in rate hikes.  The report said that US stocks returns will be driven by earnings but will continue to see caps due to market volatility.

JPMorgan also said that the Federal Reserve is expected to conclude its rate hike spree in the first quarter of 2023. This would cause yields to stabilize and interest rate volatility to decline.

The JPMorgan report also said that the outlook for earnings for US stock would depend “on the evolution of economic growth.” If the economy manages to avoid a recession, JPMorgan expects earnings growth to remain flat when compared to 2022. If, however, the economy enters a recession the report said “history suggests earnings could decline by as much as 15%–20%.”

JPMorgan is not alone in its optimistic calls related to inflation. WisdomTree Investments, in a latest report, said that it believes inflation in the US has reached its “zenith” and would continue to decrease in 2023. The firm, however, said that bringing inflation back to the 2% threshold set by the Federal Remains “may remain elusive” due to the service sector.

The IPO space got hammered in 2022 due to the macroeconomic backdrop as companies chose not to enter the stormy waters. A Bloomberg report in December said that just $207 billion were raised in 2022 from public listings, a whopping 68% drop when compared to 2021. The report quoted Edward Byun, co-head of Asia ex-Japan equity capital markets at Goldman Sachs Group Inc., who thinks that “stability" around inflation and visibility on the trajectory for interest rate hikes is needed for the activity in the IPO markets to return.
