Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and government lockdowns, aircraft have been grounded for many months. Although restrictions have eased and flights have resumed, airlines are still not utilising their full fleets. With that in mind, it’s not surprising that aviation stocks on the FTSE have taken a huge hit. However, with the beginning of a recovery finally in sight, I’m starting to look at interesting opportunities in the aviation industry.

One stock I like the look of is Meggitt Group (LSE:MGGT).

FTSE 250 opportunity

Meggitt Group is an engineering firm that operates in three divisions: civil aerospace, defence, and energy. Aerospace produces core components that many aircraft rely on. MGGT’s markets for aerospace include civil aircraft, helicopters, engines, and business jets. Over 50% of the group’s revenue comes from its aerospace division. Defence is the second biggest revenue generator for MGGT, with over 30% from military aircraft, vehicles, naval, … Read more

The FTSE 250 index has weakened a bit in September after inching up last month. This is not surprising. Coronavirus cases have surged again, leading to new restrictions on public activity. There is danger that Brexit arrangements will break international law. Improvement in economic activity, while still steady with a 6.6% growth in July, has tapered from the month before.

In a nutshell, uncertainties abound. There may even be another stock market crash. However, it can still be an opportunity for investors, as we at the Motley Fool have been reiterating in the past months. I’m of the view that the best bets right now are beaten down stocks like Britain’s food services businesses, which include pubs and restaurants among others. 

The reason is simple. All … Read more

Our view here at The Motley Fool is clear as can be. If you want to make monster profits with UK shares then buying after stock markets crashes is a great way to do this.

It pains writers like me to see fellow investors sit on the sidelines in fear and waste this excellent opportunity to get seriously rich.

That said, not all decisions by UK share investors have left me with my head in my hands. I’m happy to see share pickers continue to give the Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) an extremely wide berth. The FTSE 100 bank’s 60% cheaper than it was since the start of the year. And it tipped to fresh eight-year lows at the end last week.
