3 reasons why the stock market’s crash could be the best buying opportunity in 10 years

first_img Enter Your Email Address Peter Stephens | Friday, 5th June, 2020 Image source: Getty Images. The recent stock market crash has caused significant paper losses for many investors. In the short term, they may increase depending on news regarding coronavirus. As such, many investors may determine that now is not the right time to be buying stocks.However, just as previous market crashes such as the global financial crisis, which occurred over a decade ago, proved to be buying opportunities, the 2020 downturn may end up being viewed the same way over the long run. As such, buying financially-sound businesses while they offer wide margins of safety could lead to high returns in the coming years.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…Recovery potential after a market crashThe prospect of a stock market recovery may seem unlikely at the present time. After all, coronavirus has sadly had a huge impact on the health and wellbeing of many people across the world. It has led to lockdowns being implemented in many countries that are expected to produce a major decline in economic output.However, the global economy has always recovered from its previous downturns. Certainly, this has taken many months or even years in some cases. But it has always returned to positive GDP growth, which has produced rising earnings for businesses and improving investor sentiment. Therefore, buying stocks now could enable you to take part in the world’s likely economic recovery over the coming years.Low pricesA stock market crash enables investors to buy companies while they trade on low prices. This has historically been a sound investment strategy, since equity prices are cyclical. They have always followed the same pattern of experiencing bull markets and bear markets, with neither lasting in perpetuity.Buying a company at a lower price can lead to a more favourable risk/reward ratio for investors. There is greater scope for capital growth, while many of the risks faced by businesses may be priced in. As such, investors who are able to buy bargain stocks today could generate high returns as the recent market crash gives way to growth.Financial strengthAs well as the stock market’s recovery potential and low prices, now could be the best buying opportunity since the global financial crisis due to the financial strength of many businesses.Although a wide range of sectors are likely to be negatively impacted by coronavirus in the short run, in many cases they contain companies that have solid balance sheets and wide economic moats. They may help such businesses to survive a period of economic weakness, and return to growth over the coming years.Investing in financially-sound companies can reduce your risk and improve your prospects of experiencing long-term growth. As such, focusing on the balance sheets of the companies you intend to purchase could be a worthwhile move when aiming to capitalise on low valuations found across the stock market following its recent crash.

It was caused by an exceptional event that was unprecedented, so many investors were unable to prepare for it.Looking ahead, risks such as a second wave of coronavirus, Brexit and the upcoming US election could cause investor sentiment to weaken. This may result in a further stock market crash in the coming months.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…Here’s how investors may wish to prepare for that prospect, while continuing to invest in undervalued stocks today to benefit from a likely long-term recovery.Cash holdingsAvoiding FTSE 100 shares and holding your capital in a cash savings account is likely to mean lower returns over the long run. However, having some cash on hand in case the stock market declines over the coming months could be a shrewd move.It may allow you to capitalise on even lower stock market valuations without having to sell other assets. Furthermore, it can provide an investor with the ability to quickly react to market downturns if cash is easily accessible.Holding some cash instead of being fully invested in FTSE 100 shares may also provide peace of mind. Having sufficient capital available for emergencies that may unfortunately become more common over the coming months, such as employment challenges, could also be a prudent move. It should mean you are not required to sell stock market investments at lower prices.Identifying FTSE 100 companiesThe FTSE 100’s recent rebound may mean that some stocks are now trading at price levels that you feel are somewhat unattractive. However, it is still a good idea to analyse those companies now to determine whether they could offer good value for money. After all, they could be bargains if a market crash occurs over the short run.Being in a position to buy specific stocks quickly could be an advantage for an investor. As the recent market crash showed, the window of opportunity to buy shares can be relatively short. Being in a position where you know which companies you want to buy, and at what general price, could allow you to react more quickly to rapidly-changing market conditions.Opening a Stocks and Shares ISABuying FTSE 100 shares today in a Stocks and Shares ISA is a simple and low-cost means of investing in a tax-efficient manner. Therefore, ensuring that you have an ISA opened and ready to be used for investing in a diverse range of companies right now could be a sound move ahead of a possible market crash.If you are ready to invest in high-quality stocks then you may be better placed to capitalise on what could prove to be a very volatile stock market as the world gradually emerges from a period of lockdown measures.

Stock market crash: I’d invest £10k in these 3 UK shares in an ISA to make a million

But they shouldn’t stop us from trying to get rich from UK shares. While some see market crashes as a reason to sell up and head for the hills, we at The Motley Fool consider corrections as brilliant investment opportunities.Investing £10k in UK shares today isn’t guaranteed to make you monster profits straight away. In fact, it’s quite possible that share markets will fall again in the near-term, given the range of issues knocking confidence like Covid-19.5G 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 threat of even another market crash hasn’t blown my appetite for buying UK shares off course though. The key to successful investing is to buy stocks you’ll feel confident enough to hold for five-to-10 years, perhaps more. Over this sort of timeframe, a balanced portfolio packed with quality stocks will recover strongly from any immediate turbulence and deliver monster shareholder returns.3 stocks I’d buy after the market crashLet me fill you in on three UK shares I’m thinking of buying for my ISA today:I’m contemplating buying into 4Imprint Group for when the economic recovery kicks in. Demand for the promotional merchandise manufacturer’s products has tanked this year. But business is already beginning to pick up and City analysts reckon profits will rocket 350% in 2021. Edison estimates the promotional materials market was worth $23bn in 2019. Yet 4Imprint’s share only sits at around 3%. This gives it plenty of room to grow in the years ahead.Buying into gold stocks like Pan African Resources is a brilliant idea too. Even when the chaos thrown up by Covid-19 lessens and economic conditions slowly improve, a backdrop of ultra-loose central bank policies across the globe will maintain strong gold prices as inflationary concerns likely persist. The rate at which debt is falling at this South African digger (net debt halved during December-June) makes it an attractive investment for me today too. This share trades on a dirt-cheap forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 11 times.I love bargain UK shares and so ECO Animal Health Group is on my radar as well. The animal healthcare market is booming and should continue to do so. According to Mordor Intelligence, this market will grow at an annualised rate of 8% through to 2025. Yet I don’t believe this bright outlook is baked into this AIM stock’s share price today. With earnings tipped to rise 35% this fiscal year ECO deals on a forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) of just 0.8.Get rich with more UK sharesBuying these UK shares is a brilliant idea for those who want to enjoy stunning returns in the years ahead. But they’re not the only top stocks worth buying after the market crash. With a little bit of research — and some helpful pointers from experts like The Motley Fool — you can build a formidable shares portfolio at little cost right now. Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended 4imprint Group.
