8 Long-Term Uptrend Stocks to Buy

8 Long-Term Uptrend Stocks to Buy

In the early stages of an uptrend, it’s hard to tell just how far a stock will rally. Sometimes these trends are short-lived and “only” give us a 10% return. Other times though, these trends are good for several years and return 100% or more.

Telling the difference in the beginning is tough and too many investors take a pass on something because it’s up 10% or 20% in a few months. While there’s no such thing as a risk-free bet, they’re leaving a ton of reward on the table by avoiding the name simply because of its recent rally. It reminded me of a line from a great writer, Richard Saintvilus:

“One lesson, among many others, I’ve learned on Wall Street is that it’s never too late to make the right call. And if ever that proverbial train “leaves the station,” there’s nothing wrong to admit you were wrong and chase that train to get back on board — even if the ticket costs more to ride.”

A stock rallying from $105 to $125 in a few months is a lot and may make many feel they’ve missed the train. But what if we ignored a good fundamental situation because “it had rallied too much.” Ultimately nine months later that stock is sitting another $50 per share higher and we ignored it. We sat out a $50 per share gain because of its $20 rally? That doesn’t make any sense.

5 TV Stocks That Netflix, Inc. Can’t Beat

With that in mind, let’s take a look at 8 solid stocks that are still in an uptrend and may still have farther to go.

Uptrend Stocks to Buy: Netflix

Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) has been on a mission, both in reality and in the stock market. The company’s goal is to become the leader in global streaming. With 125 million customers, it’s well on its way to fulfilling that leadership goal. Heck, its market cap is just $7 billion short of Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS).

That puts things in perspective a bit.

But NFLX stock has been even more impressive than the company. It’s up 132% over the past 12 months and 73% since the start of 2018. That’s paved a solid — if also explosive — uptrend for investors. Take note of the chart to see what I mean.

As you can see, Netflix stock has been a beast. Notice that when it started 2018, shares weren’t over $200 yet! Now we’re already over $300. The move has been intense, but so long as the trends stay in place it’s hard to bet against NFLX.

Over its previous highs and above $330, Netflix stock is basing nicely. Momentum is strong and the stock is not yet overbought (blue peaks on the chart). Should nearby support fail, investors would be lucky to gobble up the stock near $300. There should be support near this level, along with the 50-day moving average and a rising uptrend line of support.

Given that the company just beat earnings, revenue and subscriber estimates, as well as provided subscriber guidance that topped analyst estimates, I’d rather be a buyer on dips than a seller on rips.

Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) has been one of the market’s best performers. If you bought this name at the start of 2016 and forgot how to hit the sell button, you’d be sitting on a 600% gain in Nvidia. While the move has been extraordinary, we could be setting up for even more gains.

Looking at the charts, it’s pretty obvious that Nvidia has been struggling to eclipse the $250 mark. On three separate occasions this year, shares have rallied to this point only to fail and stumble lower.

Thursday’s 3% selloff could setup NVDA stock to retest the 100-day moving average and uptrend support that’s been in place for almost a year. As much as investors would hate to see this level fail though, I would love to get a shot at NVDA near $200. At this level, it would have the 200-day moving average and decent support to hold it.

Just like January 2017 through May 2017, it’s good to see Nvidia digest some of its massive move over the past 12 months. If there are worries about waning demand due to cryptocurrency headwinds, then Nvidia stock could see a further decline — perhaps down to that $200 level we’re wishing for.

While this is one of the strongest uptrend stocks we’ve seen, remember it has massive gains over the past few years. Eventually a big pullback wouldn’t be a surprise. If $200 comes, it would be a 20% decline for the highs. I’d love to buy into its secular upside on a short-term selloff.

Until then, the $250 breakout is still in play.
