Morningstar Moments: 3 Things You May Have Missed

Our analysts talked about crypto in retirement plans, cheap stock picks, and sponsoring Black female advisors.

Here are the major market moments our analysts have been talking about.

1) Could Crypto Curiosity Kill the Cat? Despite its growing popularity, cryptocurrency remains a controversial topic in finance. In the future, it is possible that crypto will play a starring role in funds, exchange-traded funds, and even retirement plans. Stan Treger explores millennial and generation Z clients' interest in this investment.

2) Promising Stocks for Your Portfolio When looking for stocks with potential, it's important to go beyond the surface and consider the improving competitive advantages. Susan Dziubinski finds stock picks that are cheap and have positive moat trends.

3) Sponsors Are the Key to Success

Blacks and Hispanics still represent just a fraction of the total Certified Financial Planner population, writes Rianka R. Dorsainvil. This number is even smaller for Black women. How can the finance industry support and invest in Black female advisors? There needs to be a greater focus on sponsorship.
