Stocks markets were in turmoil for the last few months due to the pandemic. Many companies couldn’t weather the storm and found themselves at the bottom of the line. Investors need to be more careful before sinking their money into shares, especially in times of an economic crisis.
Some shareholders were puzzled due to the fast rebound at the end of March. However, the market’s movements aren’t unusual. Long-term real interest rates stay negative, but the Federal Reserve is flooding the market with cheap credit. Analysts predict that the current economic slowdown will be temporary thanks to the massive stimulus measures.
However, most of the futures are selling cheaply right now. So, it is the ideal time to buy tech stocks which aren’t negatively affected by the lock down and economic slowdown. Some analysts think that artificial intelligence and robotic companies look especially good, considering that we live on the cusp of a technological revolution. Here are two such stocks with strong potential.
