Inflation has remained one of the key concerns for investors around the world. We have seen market sell-offs not just in equities but also in crypto. We do not expect these inflationary pressures to ease until the end of the year and besides, central banks around the world, including the Fed, are putting in place measures to address this.
While investors don’t like high inflation, there are still some stocks to watch despite this. Here are our top picks:
Aptiv PLC (APTV)
Aptiv PLC (NYSE:APTV) is a US-based company that specializes in the manufacturing of vehicle components. The company focuses more on the EV market and has continued to beat market expectations as far as earnings go. Aptiv is more likely to benefit from the increased prices in the market and get more revenue on its books.
