Wall Street has been anything but predictable since the decade began. Investors have worked their way through the steepest bear market crash in history (the COVID-19 crash in February-March 2020), enjoyed a euphoric bull market in 2021 that sent the major stock indexes to new highs, and then endured a second bear market in as many years in 2022.
Although the Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500, and Nasdaq Composite have rallied well off of their 2022 bear market lows, all three indexes are still meaningfully below their record highs. For long-term investors, this means opportunity still abounds.
The best part of putting your money to work on Wall Street is that most online brokerages have torn down previous barriers to entry. Commission fees associated with common stock purchases on major exchanges are gone, as are minimum deposit requirements. It means any amount of money — even as little as $100 — can be the perfect amount to invest.
If you have $100 at the ready and you’re certain you’re not going to need this cash to pay bills or cover emergencies as they arise, the following three stocks stand out as no-brainer buys right now.
