Bottom Line

Soon, delivery stores may become crucial compared to physical stores. But nothing is permanent and investors must be careful while selecting their stocks.

Always check with all the factors of the company and the stock before adding it to your portfolio. Another way is to diversify it. By spreading it out, you are spreading out the risk as well. Once the risk is mitigated, they may work in your favor. Therefore, look at the 360-degree view to stabilize your portfolio.
