The Best Stocks to Buy Before the Next Round of Stimulus

Stocks were at their lows for the year back in March when COVID-19 was spreading rapidly throughout the world for the first time.

It was a time of fear and panic in the financial markets as stocks fell about 35% from their all-time highs in February with little information to go on for the novel virus.

But then, the United States federal government went into their economic playbook and passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

This provided over $2 trillion in economic support to American workers, families, and small businesses.

In general, most of the stock market has reacted favorably.

Since the CARES Act was passed on March 27, the S&P 500 is up 30% to new all-time highs.

Should I Buy Airline Stocks Now? Chris Johnson Explains in His "Markets Live" Session

Airline stocks find themselves in a precarious situation right now.

In April, these businesses received $25 billion in bailouts from the U.S. government to continue paying their hundreds of thousands of employees.

Under the terms stipulated by the government, the airlines weren't allowed to make any layoffs or job cuts until Sept. 30.

The government hoped the money would be enough to tide the airlines over until October, when travel was expected to pick back up again…

But that clearly hasn't happened.

You see, the number of passengers going through TSA is down 74% from a year ago.

And with COVID cases surging again, it doesn't seem like this trend will reverse itself soon...
