State of the Market

In this week’s episode of his YouTube series State of the Market, Chief Income Strategist Marc Lichtenfeld spotlights a sector that investors have feared during the COVID-19 pandemic…

A sector that should see incredible gains as the world begins to recover.

Travel stocks’ performance has been a bellwether for investor sentiment over the past two years.

Airline call options, for example, traded at high volumes this spring as optimism swept the market.

But now volume has dwindled to some of its lowest post-COVID-19 levels in stocks like American Airlines (Nasdaq: AAL) as uncertainty about the delta variant leaves traders skittish.

Just one week ago, the CNN Fear & Greed Index placed us squarely in “extreme fear.”

But there’s reason to be hopeful about these once-high-flying stocks…

Merck‘s (NYSE: MRK) molnupiravir treatment for COVID-19 signals the start of a period in which our efforts to treat the disease may catch up with our efforts to prevent it, providing hope in spite of vaccine holdouts.

So it may be time to look to the market’s most beaten-up sectors and stake your claim on a long-term play…

In this week’s video, Marc features three travel-related stocks that may have slipped under your radar but should be at the top of your list.

These stocks have managed to hold up during the pandemic, and as the world’s recovery progresses, they should benefit.

With a 5% yielder in the hotel space, a pick-and-shovel airline play that yields 5.2% and an international airport operator worth waiting for, this week’s State of the Market is not one to be missed.

In it, Marc reveals the best travel stocks to watch in 2021 – stocks that will reward your faith in the world’s recovery.
