Safe Stock Sectors in 2022
There are several sectors that are safe for investors right now, says Kaden Nay, the YouTuber behind the personal finance and investing channel Modern Money, in a new episode of the Early Bird podcast.
Consumer Discretionary: Nay likes consumer discretionary stocks the most because he says that their earnings per share are good and there is strong demand.
Industrials: Supply chain challenges will start to improve, which is good for industrial stocks, according to Nay.
Communication Services: Stocks in communication services are good, according to Nay, because more businesses are adopting these tools to increase productivity.
Final Thoughts: What research should average investors do before picking stocks? Nay explains in a new episode of the Early Bird podcast.

Cardano’s Recent Rally
The price of the cryptocurrency Cardano jumped about 9% in the past week.
Numbers: Cardano’s price increased from $0.46 to $0.52 this week before settling down to $0.49 on Sunday.
Catalyst: The recent rally seems to be attributed to the Vasil hard fork, which will hopefully bring new improvements to Cardano’s blockchain.
Final Thoughts: The launch date for the Vasil hard fork has not been announced yet, but some traders anticipate that it will happen soon.
