Coronavirus-Battered Tech Retirement Bets for Millennials

March 26 2020 by Radhika Pujara for Zacks


Millennials are becoming increasingly apprehensive regarding the impending recession and the economic downturn triggered by lockdowns globally owing to coronavirus outbreak.

Per the survey conducted by retail predictive analytics company, First Insight, the novel coronavirus is influencing spending decisions of 54% of millennial population.
