Feb 24, 2021 (StockMarket.com via COMTEX) -- These 4 Epicenter Stocks Have Been Trending In The Market This Year

What are epicenter stocks ? Originally coined by Fundstrat's Tom Lee, "epicenter stocks" are companies that were hit hardest during the pandemic, but stand to benefit the most from an economic reopening. Now, it appears that new daily infections are on the decline with the global vaccine rollout. Many are jumping on the assumption that the pandemic may be over soon, if so, you may want to check out the top epicenter stocks to buy right now .

The current bull argument is that top epicenter stocks could be looking at the biggest recoveries once the pandemic comes to an end. Logically, positive vaccine news would incentivize investors to turn towards epicenter stocks. Of course, the idea of betting on epidemiological trends can be risky. While the infection data seems encouraging, no one can say for sure if the vaccines could offer full protection against the new variants.

That said, some protection is better than no protection. After all, vaccine rollout has been crucial in addressing the prior surge in coronavirus cases. And now, the Israeli studies show that the Pfizer ( NYSE: PFE ) and BioNTech ( NASDAQ: BNTX ) COVID-19 vaccine appeared to stop the vast majority of recipients in Israeli from becoming infected. This provides the first real-world indication that immunization will curb transmission of the coronavirus. With global vaccines continuing to roll out, we could very well be on the road to recovery. If that's the case, you might want to put up a list of the best epicenter stocks to buy before we can indeed confirm a recovery.

American Airlines Group

First up, American Airlines seems ready for take-off after gaining nearly 10% while the broader market took a hit. If you have been following our feeds on StockMarket.com , the story here should be familiar. Airline stocks took a major hit during the onset of the pandemic. And with the COVID-19 situation improving amid a global vaccine rollout, investors are starting to pay attention to the aviation space.

What really triggered a spike among top airline stocks was the sector-wide upgrade from Deutsche Bank's analyst, Michael Linenberg. While he appears to have some reservations about the valuation of the stock, he believes airline stocks have considerable upside. More travelers will fly when it is safe to do so.

It is not a matter of if, but when. Therefore, airlines and their stocks will eventually recover. The question is in getting on board early enough. What's more, with the recent vaccine news from Israel, the road to recovery for AAL stock may be a smooth one.

Coming up next, Royal Caribbean Group is another epicenter stock bucking the trend when the market goes south. Royal Caribbean Group is the largest cruise line company in the entire world. Additionally, it is the second-largest cruise line in the world by passengers. The company holds more than 14% of the cruise line market by revenue and 19% by passengers. That makes it a top candidate for recovery if this sector is able to perform better.
