With major US stock indexes back within shouting distance of record highs reached before the coronavirus crash, one might think the market is headed back to business as usual.
Not so fast.
Even if those lofty levels are attained in the coming weeks and months — something viewed as eminently achievable by JPMorgan — there’s a growing consensus that long-standing market conditions will be turned on their head.

Many experts across Wall Street have instead trained their attention on the areas of the market best positioned to capitalize on the sudden wave of dislocation.

But he’s not talking about tech. He instead sees the opportunities in financial and small-cap shares.
