2 UK stocks I might buy for 2021 in my Stocks and Shares ISA! Could they treble my money?

There’s still a huge amount of uncertainty facing today’s investor. But I still feel now’s a great time to go share shopping. The FTSE 250 trebled in value following the UK stock market crash of 2008/2009 as the global economy steadily recovered.

I think these three UK stocks could similarly surge in value following the 2020 share market crash.

5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!

According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…

And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential...

#1: A popular UK gambling stock

The online gambling sector is ripe with opportunity for UK stock investors. And 888 Holdings is one major operator I’m thinking of adding to my ISA in 2021. This share trades on a slightly-toppy forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 20 times. But I believe it’s worth every penny.

888 has some of the strongest brands in the sports and casino betting segments. This is helping the company to ride this exploding market to the maximum. Last month, the business said it expected full-year sales to soar 45% in 2020, better than its previous forecasts.

Brand investment and new product launches are just two reasons to get excited. Ongoing geographic expansion (and in the massive US market in particular) is another reason I’m expecting earnings at this UK stock to rocket in the 2020s.

#2: Gaming goliath

I’d also buy shares in Paris-listed Ubisoft Entertainment to get rich from the booming games industry. In November, its Assassins Creed Valhalla title sold more copies in its launch week than any previous instalment in the series. And the software colossus has plenty more popular titles such as Far Cry and Watch Dogs in its locker to capitalise on this ballooning market.

Now Ubisoft’s shares don’t come cheap. Today, this non-UK stock trades on a P/E multiple of 30 times at today’s prices. But a business with such a mighty position in a fast-growing market warrants a meaty premium, in my book.

Latest data from Mordor Intelligence illustrates Ubisoft’s bright profits outlook perfectly. It reckons the global games market will soar at a compound annual growth rate of 9.2% through to 2025.

#3: A cyber security hero

I’d also buy tech-focussed UK stocks which specialise in the fast-growing field of cyber security. Businesses and government agencies are spending more and more to protect themselves against fraud and malicious digital attacks. And Kape Technologies (LSE: KAPE) is one expert that’s enjoying stunning sales growth as a consequence.

Revenues at Kape soared 97% during the six months to June as companies stepped up efforts to protect themselves. And the UK share has embarked on a significant number of product launches, such as its CyberGhost 8 Privacy Suite and pioneering WireGuard encryption protocol, to meet the needs of its growing customer base.

Today, Kape Technologies’s shares trade on a forward P/E ratio of just 18 times. This makes the IT star a steal, in my opinion, and could lay the foundation for stunning share price growth in 2021 onwards.

In fact, I think this UK stock is one that could treble investors’ money this decade.
