We all dream of making millions by investing in UK share markets. But very few manage to make these hopes a reality. It doesn’t necessarily have to be that way though. An army of British investors have got super rich by drawing up sound stock-buying strategies and investing regularly.

The number of UK share market millionaires has rocketed over the past decade. Eagle-eyed investors bought quality stocks in the depths of the 2008/2009 banking crisis. And then they watched them soar in value as economic conditions improved and corporate earnings rebounded.

It’s a strategy that investors today can replicate following the Covid-19-related crash of early 2020. I’ve bought UK shares that have fallen sharply in value in my Stocks and Shares ISA. And there are plenty more I’m thinking of adding to my shares portfolio for 2021 too.

2 top UK shares on my ISA watchlist

Here are a couple of top stocks on my ISA radar today. I reckon they could help me make a fortune during the new bull market:

#1: Gateley Holdings

Merger and acquisition (M&A) activity has slowed to a trickle in 2020. It’s no surprise as profits outlooks have become muddied and balance sheets experienced severe pressure. But it looks like things could be about to turn significantly higher as the global economic recovery kicks in.

Comments from Ross Mitchinson, co-chief executive of Numis Corporation, illustrate how takeover fever is beginning to take off. He’s just said that “we’ve quite a bit of M&A picking up… [and] there will definitely be a pick-up in inbound M&A.” This all bodes well for Gateley Holdings (LSE: GTLY). This UK share is the country’s most active M&A legal advisor by deal volume.

City analysts expect Gateley to record a fractional earnings rise in this financial year (ending April 2021). But things are likely to heat up as that M&A action improves and ongoing expansion boosts profits. I think a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 16 times represents an attractive entry point for long-term investors to buy in at.

#2: Wizz Air

2021 could be an explosive year for Europe’s airlines should a mass rollout of Covid-19 vaccines successfully transpire. It might be too late for many flyers, sure. But those with strong balance sheets like Wizz Air Holdings (LSE: WIZZ) stand to gain from a further thinning of the competition next year and beyond.

This particular airline is the best way to play booming wealth levels in Central and Eastern Europe. Its planes jet all over the continent but the Hungarian flyer has the best footprint in these emerging regions than any other in the fast-growing budget segment. Forget about Wizz Air’s huge losses that it’ll rack up in this unusual fiscal year (to March 2021). I think this UK share has ‘millionaire maker’ printed through it.

One Killer Stock For The Cybersecurity Surge

Cybersecurity is surging, with experts predicting that the cybersecurity market will reach US$366 billion by 2028more than double what it is today!

And with that kind of growth, this North American company stands to be the biggest winner.

Because their patented “self-repairing” technology is changing the cybersecurity landscape as we know it…

We think it has the potential to become the next famous tech success story.

In fact, we think it could become as big… or even BIGGER than Shopify.
