7 Eternal Stocks That Are Never Bad To Buy
Investors thought 2021 would be a less volatile year. This story encountered some problems. Of course, all the major indices are up for the year. And this despite the heartbreaking 10% drop in NASDAQ in March.
But many investors don’t really want to celebrate. In fact, many are concerned about the liquidity that continues to flow into the stock market. In 2020, the pandemic inundated the economy with $ 6 trillion in stimulus packages.
However, in recent months, the Federal Reserve has pumped an additional $ 6 trillion into the economy. We would have stopped counting, but the math is pretty straightforward. It was $ 12.3 trillion that flooded the economy.
Ultimately, it will end badly. But market timing is a flawed science, especially when many investors are enjoying the game.

But these are actions that have stood the test of time. And investing in these stocks will keep your portfolio in the right direction.
