With markets at all-time highs, which stocks are priced attractively?

November is here, and you're asking yourself, "Which stocks should I buy now?" I've got your back! I have three stock ideas for you to explore. These stocks have been beaten down from recent highs, and they could be an opportunity at these levels. Today's video is focused on three growth stock picks, and each is focused on megatrends:

  • The first stock covers fintech and "buy now, pay later," also referred to as BNPL.
  • The second deals with robotic process automation (RPA).
  • The third and final stock is pivoting its long-term business model from social media to the metaverse. 

PayPal (PYPL -2.68%) is an online payments platform that enables users to send and receive money digitally worldwide. PayPal is not new to the fintech space. It was founded in 1998, and it is headquartered in San Jose, California. The company has grown into a monster over the years, now owning iZettle, Honey, Braintree, Venmo, Xoom, Hyperwallet, PayPal Credit, and more. It even has a "buy now, pay later" platform, which I explain in the below video.

This has been a hot trend, and companies like Affirm Holdings (AFRM -7.02%) have been rocketing higher, while PayPal has been beaten down from recent highs. Perhaps the stock is a buying opportunity here?

UiPath (PATH -4.65%) is a global software company focused on robotic process automation, also called RPA. The company's software enables organizations to automate data entry and repetitive tasks. RPA technology makes it simpler for businesses to build, deploy, and manage bots. These software robots emulate human actions and provide many benefits. Examples include:

  • Increased production times
  • Reduced costs
  • Increased employee creativity and innovation
  • Improved efficiency
  • Increased employee happiness and retention
  • Improved process quality 
  • Higher employee productivity
  • Improved customer service

Meta Platforms (META -3.08%) is the third stock on today's video. The business is pivoting to the metaverse, and the company changed its name from Facebook to Meta Platforms. Starting on Dec. 1, the new stock ticker will be MVRS. The stock trades at around a 23 P/E (TTM), which seems attractive for its growth. Is the dip a buying opportunity?

Please see the video below for more information and my opinions on what price levels I think could be attractive for long-term investors.
