The stock market crash back in March hit so many sectors and the industrial sector was one of the most affected. Nation-wide lock-down has forced factories to stay shut and has affected the industrial sector which relies on this factories running to make money.
Consequently, the stock price of some companies in the industrial sector has fallen way below book value like Airline stocks. And buying these stocks in their lows will see you potentially have huge ROI when factories start running and things return to normal.
However, moves like this are for patient long-term investors, who have the nerves to ride through storms.
