Is Now a Good Time to Buy Airline Stocks?

Airlines were some of the hardest-hit stocks during the bear market brought about by the coronavirus.

In fact, the Dow Jones U.S. Airline Index is still down 60.0% today from its Feb. 12 closing high.

Even worse, last week's low was below the initial panic low in March.

In other words, the broad market's rebound happened without any help from airlines at all.

So is it a good time to buy airline stocks?

Money Morning's Capital Wave strategist Shah Guilani says it's "up in the air" in a bad way.



3 Key Takeaways from Warren Buffett's Annual Shareholder Meeting

Over the weekend, Warren Buffett hosted the annual Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A) shareholders meeting.

The so-called "Woodstock for Capitalists" featured a few surprise revelations from the Oracle of Omaha.

Buffett, who has been at the helm of the company since 1970, expressed optimism over the long-term outlook of the U.S. economy.

This "other" pandemic isn't immediately visible to the naked eye.

It's not grabbing as many headlines.

But it's everywhere.

And it's dangerous.

Very dangerous…

I'm talking about the pandemic of misinformation, conspiracy theories, and outright lies about COVID-19.

With our world being turned upside down and scientists still searching for responses to this brand-new virus, regular folks like us are searching for answers.

But to protect yourself, your family, and your economic wellbeing, you need to know what's really going on.

So today, let's close that Reality Gap between what half-baked pundits, self-important voices, and self-serving politicians are saying, and what we really know.
