The novel coronavirus has dealt a crippling blow to various industries and sectors, translating to tens of thousands of businesses. It’s impacted inflation, stock markets, labor markets, interest rates and a whole swath of other financial metrics. Surprisingly, though, there hasn’t been any shortage of stocks to buy.
The stock markets reacted to the initial Covid-19 trauma with a breathtaking and stunning decline. The S&P 500 fell about 35% inside of a month. However, the market found its footing and soared to the upside. It’s been grinding away at all-time highs without even 5% correction for months.
That said, the industries and sectors that were hit hard are still struggling through the mess that Covid-19 has left — and is leaving — in its wake. With the successful deployment of vaccines from drugmakers like Pfizer (NYSE:PFE), Moderna (NASDAQ:MRNA), Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) and others, we’ve been able to achieve some state of “normal” once again.
