Billionaire investor Bill Gross said 2020's growth stocks "may struggle" in 2021 and revealed his favorite sector pick for the new year in his latest Investment Outlook letter.
According to the PIMCO co-founder, stocks that soared in 2020, like Tesla and certain SPACs, won't repeat the performance in 2021.
Tesla was up over 740% in 2020, with most Wall Street analysts predicting either a decline or only slight increase for the EV maker's stock price in the next 12 months. Meanwhile, the top performing SPAC according to Nasdaq, QuantumScape, flew over 1,115% in 2020.
For returns in 2021, Gross is eyeing natural gas pipeline stocks within the energy sector of the market. He said the market sector yields between 9% and 12% for investment grade stocks with certain tax advantages. Gross told inventors to "take a look" at Magellan Midstream Partners, BP Midstream Partners LP, and Enterprise Products Partners L.P.
"TSLA? In the hands of the Robinhood gods I'm afraid it's definitely overvalued,"he added.
The billionaire investor also commented on what's behind the sky-high asset prices in the market.
"This market is driven - yes - by intense speculation, but also by fiscally pumped, central bank-primed corporate earnings, which when discounted to present value by near zero nominal and in many cases negative real interest rates, produce record stock prices," Gross said.
