The S&P/TSX Composite Index posted a record-high 19,852.20 on May 28, 2021, but took a breather on Monday and slid 0.6% to close the month at 19,731. It was a red-hot month, as Canada’s primary stock market index rose 622.70 points (3.3%) from April 30, 2021. The year-to-date gain is now 13.2% as it approaches 20,000.
Investors should have the appetite to invest, as buying opportunities are plenty. A health and wellness firm, an electric gaming business, and a cloud-based software provider are exciting picks today. All three could grow big in 2021 and beyond.
Jamieson Wellness (TSX:JWEL) hasn’t left the limelight since the pandemic began in March 2020. The $1.5 billion, Toronto-based company develops, manufactures, distributes, and sells natural health products domestically and abroad.
Inflation shouldn’t affect the business or demand for the products, as people have become more health conscious during the health crisis. In Q1 2021 (quarter ended March 31, 2021), it was no surprise that revenue and net income rose 16.3% and 18.2% versus Q1 2020.
Mark Hornick, president and CEO of Jamieson, confirms that momentum is on their side, as evidenced by the almost 9% growth in branded revenue in local and foreign markets. Entering June 1, 2021, the stock’s year-to-date gain is 4.3%. Meanwhile, analysts’ price target is $50, or a 33.7% upside. The potential return is fantastic since Jamieson also pays a 1.34% dividend.
