Stock market

So I never bought stock and have been wanting to get into the market. I was told from some of the guys at work that with the stock market so low from the COVID19 now is the time. Some suggest purchasing Delta, United airlines, TDOC, Disney, carnival. Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations?

    I have a 457 account that is now in the bond market. One more 2000 point drop and it might get rolled over into mutual funds/stock market based. It might take 2 years to see all of the gains but I have the time or if I don't it won't matter to me.

    Kinda same story here; $25K in liquid funds I want to sink into the stock market, but it hasn't fallen quite as much as I want (I have a set number, and no I'm not telling).  
    Having recently dropped into retirement, changing health insurance, AF pension starting up, Civil Service ending, it's kind've an exhilarating time to be making a change like this.  
    But, hell, hold my beer.

    If you are investing for the long term, those are probably pretty decent picks.

    Boeing has been crushed by two things. First the cut back in air travel. Second their on going problems with the civilian 737 Max. 
    The flip side is several good military contracts, the P 8 Poseidon patrol plane sold to several countries, the unmanned refueling drone for aircraft carriers, good sales of 777 and 787 twin engine passengers planes before the travel problems. Last since they are pretty much the only large passenger plane company left in the US they are “too big to fail”.

    If it were me, I’d stay away from cruise lines. They are likely to have lasting negative effects. Companies like Google on the other hand don’t have any real exposure to this.

    Boeing is a good long play. If GE gets back to the low $7s I would jump on that too until it hits the $11.70 range and then dump.

    If things here start to look like they currently do in Italy, I’d anticipate at least another 20% drop in the market.  Nevertheless, some of the tech stocks are bargains right now.

    Look for the babies getting thrown out with the bathwater.  All ships sink when the tide goes out.  Find companies that were doing really well before this hit and will keep doing well.  It will take time for industries hit hard to recover.  Airlines, cruise, travel.  The good companies getting hit will recover faster. JD and SE are ones to look at.
