Stay at Home Stocks

Stay at Home Stocks

8 min read

What stay-at-home stocks should you watch? Raise your hand if you are naturally a homebody like me! The past two years have given ‘staying at home a new meaning. The COVID-19 pandemic turned us all into homebodies, whether we liked it or not. Many places like restaurants, bars, and gyms were closed to the public. Only the essentials, like grocery stores, were open, and many of us learned how to navigate our needs from the comfort of our homes.

The advancement of technology has changed our outlook on leaving the house. Thanks to companies like Amazon, we can get anything we want delivered right to our door.

As twisted as it may sound, technology has allowed us to isolate ourselves from the world. While this comes in handy during a pandemic, what happens when we return to normal one day? If you believe in the trend of staying at home, here are some stocks to look at for the future. 

The idea of this article is to imagine which companies would allow us to live normally while almost completely staying at home. We’ll need the essentials to survive, but we should also consider entertainment, fitness, and income. 

1. Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN)

For most people, including me, Amazon is the first place to look when you realize you need something. There are very few things you can’t get on Amazon. And you can often save a few bucks by buying from their home brand, AmazonBasics.

The best part? You can usually get what you order within 24 hours, and often, it’s even faster! You can even order groceries or necessities like toilet paper or bottled water. Need things regularly? Add a subscription and save the plan to your account. Then, you save money by having things automatically delivered. Regarding eCommerce, Amazon is the global leader, and if you plan on spending a lot of time at home, then it is the first and often only site you will ever need!

2. Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX)

Netflix is the ultimate stay-at-home companion. The streaming platform is constantly churning out new original programming and classic titles from its vast library. While it has recently met some competition from other platforms like Disney+, Peacock, and HBO Max, Netflix remains the global leader in the streaming industry.

Netflix has over 210 million global subscribers in nearly 200 different countries worldwide. If you spend much time at home, you’ll want to get familiar with the Netflix catalog as they make our stay-at-home stocks list.

3. Peloton (NASDAQ: PTON)

If there’s one thing I’ve noticed from the pandemic, we’ve all put on a few extra pounds! With most gyms closed or at least limited in availability, many people turned to at-home fitness equipment. One of the premier brands for at-home fitness is Peloton. The company hit the mainstream when it debuted its interactive fitness experience.

Peloton machines are easily distinguishable by the large monitors attached to the equipment. Users can use these monitors for live training sessions in class or private settings. Connected fitness accounts for a very small percentage of the total fitness industry. And Peloton is one of the most recognizable brand names. Peloton has an attractive subscription service for users, which provides a nice recurring revenue model for the company. Add in the fact that Peloton’s equipment often costs upwards of several thousand dollars, and you can see why some investors are so bullish on the brand.

4. Chewy (NYSE: CHWY)

Another popular trend that gained popularity during the pandemic is pets! Many people adopt pets after feeling isolated and needing a little company.

Once these pets come home, you will quickly realize how much they need to eat! Never fear because Chewy is your one-stop shop for anything related to pets.

Ryan Cohen founded the eCommerce platform and is now the Executive Chairman of GameStop (NYSE: GME). On Chewy, you can find your pet’s food and treat needs. You’ll also find toys, bedding, and even finding a vet in your area.

Chewy worked hard to build up its logistics department to compete with Amazon. The company is cornering the online pet supply market. It looks to be a solid investment moving forward. 

5. DoorDash (NYSE: DASH)

If you like dining out but no longer want to sit in a crowded restaurant, companies like DoorDash are the answer. DoorDash brings a wide selection of local restaurants to order from. You can count on it being delivered promptly.

I think we probably all utilized these food delivery services during the pandemic. Potentially, many of us will not switch back to in-person dining. DoorDash also helps smaller businesses that don’t otherwise offer food delivery as they would have to hire a full-time delivery driver. DoorDash is even partnering with local grocery stores to offer free pickup and delivery of groceries to people who need them.

HIGHLIGHTS

Healthcare and Home Improvement

1. Home Depot (NYSE: HD)

Well, we had a lot of fun stocks, but if you spend a lot of time at home, things will start to break down.

Have you ever seen a Home Depot that isn’t busy? You’ll be visiting Big Orange quite a bit to keep up the condition of your home. Luckily, there are over 2,300 locations around North America if you ever need to repair! Home Depot is as blue-chip as stocks come in the retail sector, and the stock pays a generous dividend. 

2. TelaDoc (NYSE: TDOC)

Ultimately, all we have is our health. If you plan on staying home, a doctor’s office is likely the last place you want to visit.

Telemedicine and telehealth are two essential services that gained popularity during the pandemic. When all you need is a prescription renewed, getting on the phone with a physician is much easier than heading across town to see them.

Some visits still need to be in person, but it is much easier for patients and doctors to do the low-touch appointments over the phone.

While there are some competitors to TelaDoc, the company remains the brand most associated with telemedicine. The stock has been beaten up recently as the pandemic appears to be coming to an end.

Rest assured, telemedicine will continue to be utilized for the foreseeable future!

Stay at Home Stocks to Chart

1. Robinhood (NASDAQ: HOOD)

An odd choice? Investing and trading became incredibly popular during the pandemic. Many people were sitting at home as the government sent out multiple stimulus checks to citizens nationwide. Many people thought they would throw that money into the stock market to get rich quickly. Robinhood is one of the more popular brokerages and is completely based online. Robinhood is excellent for trading stocks, investing in cryptocurrencies, and buying and selling options contracts. The company has some controversy, particularly in how it sold user data to hedge funds. Robinhood is a go-to mobile app for investing in stocks and will continue to be used by retail investors who spend most of their days at home.

2. Etsy (NASDAQ: ETSY)

If you will be spending a lot of time at home, why not take some time to make it look nicer? On Etsy, you can browse through handmade products that people have crafted. You can usually find some pretty unique things that would otherwise cost a small fortune if you bought a brand-name version. Etsy is even getting into the second-hand and vintage clothing markets. Etsy became popular during the pandemic because it was one of the only sites where you could find masks. If you want to add a bit of character and charm to your house, then Etsy is a great place to start!

Final Thoughts: Stay at Home Stocks

So as you can see, staying at home really isn’t so bad these days! You can trade these stay at home stocks and make some money. Apart from the lack of human contact, you can easily get access to anything you need that is essential to your survival. Online shopping and delivery logistics have become so advanced that companies like Amazon and Alibaba are working on 48 hours delivery service to any location on Earth!

The COVID-19 pandemic certainly changed how we view leaving our houses. No matter what side of the argument you land on, you cannot argue against how easy it is to simply stay at home and carry on with our lives. Whether it is health related or not, the companies we mentioned above can make our lives easier without ever having to leave home!
