Each year for more than three decades, our editorial team has surveyed the nation's leading newsletter advisors and investment experts asking for their favorite stocks for the year ahead.

This year's report—Top Picks 2021—features over 100 investment ideas for the new year.

You can read the 2021 Top Picks each day in our daily free newsletter, Top Pros' Top Picks. By subscribing to our free newsletter, you will also receive first access to future Top Picks Reports

The advisors and analysts who participate in this report are among the nation's most respected and knowledgeable investment experts. Each has a time-tested reputation for in-depth research, integrity, and a track record of long-term investment success. Most of these advisors have been participating in these reports for years; indeed, many have participated for decades!

The Top Picks report includes a variety of fast-growing stocks with high potential, as well as conservative dividend-paying stocks and iconic blue chips chosen for safe and steady returns. The defense sector, industrial outfits, consumer stocks, and financial firms are well represented on this year's list of favorites.

We also notice a decided trend to smaller-cap issues and numerous lesser-known stocks that many would consider under-the-radar. And, as always, there are compelling growth stocks on the leading edge of science and technology. This year we see a significant number of biotechnology and specialty healthcare ideas. And gold—a favorite sector in last year's report—returns again as a favored sector among these advisors.

Although we are always pleased when an advisor's investment ideas prove to be market outperformers, we nevertheless emphasize that this is not a contest. Any stock you buy should match your own investment strategy and time horizon—and fit your personal risk-tolerance level.

The recommendations presented in this report should be viewed as a starting place for your own research. These top picks are a snapshot in time—and a stock that is a “strong-buy" today can become a “sell" based on changing fundamental or technical developments.

We also encourage our readers to consider buying subscriptions to newsletters if you are following an advisor's suggestion. That way you will be kept apprised of their changing views on any given recommendation.

Our goal in this report—MoneyShow's Top Picks 2021—is to provide you with a well-rounded and diverse shopping list of investment ideas for you to consider as you build your personal long-term portfolios.

Thank you for being a part of the MoneyShow family. We hope you enjoy our annual Top Picks report and wish you the very best for investment success in 2021.
