We’ve talked a couple of times in recent days about the search for a coronavirus vaccine.
And I have also given you plenty of details about promising new treatments at the cutting edge of science that could help keep the spread at bay.
In other words, biotech and pharmaceutical firms can play a big role in either stopping the disease with vaccines or treating seriously ill patients with effective new drugs.
But those are hardly the only ways in which high tech is helping to check the spread of this novel new pandemic.
Fact is, there are a wide range of high-tech solutions and platforms that are proving invaluable. They cover everything from robotics to video conferencing to robust medical AI.
As you might imagine, this is a pretty far flung area. So, today, I’m going to boil it all down for you and reveal what I believe are the three most effective coronavirus tech tools…
The Federal Reserve’s recent decision to push interest all the way to zero has millions of investors scrambling.
Clearly, now is not a good time to be buying bonds for retirement income. Their rates also have plummeted.
And the chances that bond prices will fall when the economy recovers have shot up overnight, greatly increasing the risk of losses if you have to sell.

With that in mind, today I’m going to reveal three tech leaders that currently offer the safest dividend plays…
