  • While very well-known, Amazon could be one of the strong top picks for 2022. AMZN stock has underperformed the broader markets in 2021, rising by just over 5 percent. However, that might be about to change in 2022. The tech titan has invested over $38 billion in 2021 to expand its capacity and technology infrastructure. It will start reaping the benefits of this huge investment starting 2022. With its strong cash position and a strong supply chain presence (which became even stronger with recent investment) it is also expected to trump its rivals by a wide margin.
