US stocks to watch in 2022

What you should know before buying stocks

There’s no single winning strategy to finding what experts might call the best performing US stocks on the NYSE and Nasdaq, because the most important considerations are your own goals and circumstances. But that shouldn’t discourage you from doing your homework and investing.

Whether you care more about short-term capital gains or long-term dividend growth, it’s important to know whether a stock is performing well, making a profit, paying dividends or going backwards. Always remember that past performance does not guarantee future results. Investments can go up and down in value.

The information provided here is general in nature. It is not personal financial advice, and your personal objectives, financial situation and needs have not been taken into consideration. The best Canadian stocks listed on this page may not be the best investments for you. So you should do your own research, and speak with an investment professional if in doubt.
