Best Insurance Stocks To Buy For 2019

There are a few industries that can obviously be impacted when hurricanes hit, such as the insurance industry. However, there are many more businesses that could feel the effects — both positive and negative — from hurricanes and other natural disasters.

In this Industry Focus: Financials clip, host Jason Moser and Fool.com contributor Matt Frankel, CFP, discuss how Florence and other hurricanes could affect your stock portfolio.

A full transcript follows the video.

This video was recorded on Sept. 17, 2018.

Jason Moser: Insurance is the obvious industry here that comes into play for investors. We want to take a look, also, at some of the businesses that will feel the impact of this storm and future storms on the retail side of things. It’s interesting to see the two different sides of the coin here. On the one side, I look at companies like Home Depot and Lowe’s, for example, and I can’t help but think they will ultimately benefit from a storm like this. Most repair materials are going to come from those stores, and people are going to probably stock up a little bit more in the future to prepare for future storms. On that side, you feel like those businesses tend to do OK.
