The Hottest Stocks and Crypto In January 2022

The year 2021 witnessed a historic turn of events in stock and crypto markets. With the craziest inflation rate, global supply chain problems, metaverse going mainstream, NFT boom, crypto bull run, and the widespread crypto embracement, what are the next market-moving assets which can take your portfolio to the next level? We are happy to divulge this list to you. Here are the top stocks and cryptocurrencies which are prone to rapid growth in January 2022. 

Communication Stocks

These kinds of stocks include both content producers and companies that provide phone and internet services. Here are the best communication stocks for your portfolio in January 2022.

Electronic Arts (EA) is one of the fastest growing stocks with the YoY revenue growth of over 58%. Such strong performance indicates the aptitude for further growth in Q1 of 2022.

Alphabet (GOOGL) is the company with the highest total return over the past 12 months – 68%, which will keep its momentum going into 2022.

Tech Stocks

The term refers to the companies which sell goods and services in industries related to information technology. In January 2022, we recommend you to keep the focus on Intel Corp. (INTC) and Nvidia Corp. (NVDA), as these stocks have a good value and promise rapid growth early in the year 2022. INTC has a low P/E (price-to-earnings) ratio making it a value stock, meaning that INTC may rise faster than others as the price comes back in line with the company’s worth. NVDA, in its turn, is one of the fastest-growing stocks with a revenue growth of 68%.

Consumer Discretionary Stocks

Companies in the consumer discretionary sector sell nonessential goods and services, such as cars, appliances, and entertainment. For now, the most prominent stock in this sector is Tesla (TSLA) as it has the most momentum and the highest total return of over 146% for the past 12 months.

Cryptocurrencies

We don’t expect the crypto boom to cease anytime soon. We truly believe that it’s just the first chapter in the digital finance book. So which cryptos will be the hottest in 2022? Pay attention to these crypto market players – they have gained a lot in value this year, but they still haven’t outgrown their potential and could play the leading role in the crypto world in 2022. 

Bitcoin (BTC): With myriads of rumors and opinions going around the first crypto, it still has room for growth (as this year’s record has shown when BTC broke over $65K). BTC promises to become greener and deeper permeate the financial system. Even some countries are looking into following El Salvador’s footsteps and make BTC legal tender, while more and more banks start embracing BTC and acknowledging the crypto’s role in modern finance.

Cardano (ADA): Having outlined the upgrade plan to become a truly self-sustained decentralized system, ADA is moving forward with it, relying on peer review before each upgrade. That gives investors confidence in this crypto’s capacity to stand out in the near future.

Polkadot (DOT): Polkadot’s experienced leadership (it was created by one of Ethereum co-founders) and its ability to connect blockchains may help it stay at the front of the pack in the short term.

Ethereum (ETH) is one of the biggest crypto players that could see a rise in value in January 2022. Why? Because it is about to release an important upgrade – Ethereum 2. It will solve its biggest problem, which is transaction speed. So, instead of only 30 transactions per second, it may be able to produce 100,000.
