Tips of the Year 2019

After a bruising 2018, the format of our Tips of the Year is changing a bit. From a sector perspective, the list of eight tips is less diverse than usual and less perspective by virtue of not being forced to fit with a pre-determined selection of categories (Value, Growth, Contrarian, Recovery, Takeover etc). That’s not to say readers will not find tips that fit with such themes. Brickmaker Forterra (FORT) and airline company easyJet (EZJ) certainly fit the bill as value plays, for instance. Meanwhile, London Stock Exchange (LSE) has been a perennial takeover target and industry dynamics means this could prove the year it finally gets taken out. Meanwhile, battered telecoms giant BT (BT.) is definitely contrarian and also a recovery play.
