Thom Guidi and Ryan English spoke with Steve Watkins of the Cincinnati Business Courier about the performance of local stocks in 2020. Thom weighed in on how healthcare stocks reacted to the pandemic, and Ryan shared some insight on how stocks in the financial industry were impacted, as well as thoughts on the two biggest companies in Cincinnati, Kroger and P&G.
