3 Top Stocks to Buy During This Sell-Off

Over the past month, the NASDAQ 100 index has fallen by approximately 3%. That’s only for large names included in the benchmark. Many under-the-radar stocks — especially those in the tech industry with a high beta — have fallen even further…

The good news is that buying the dip when others are afraid to dive in can be a solid way to make money in the long run. Indeed, shares of BlackBerry (NYSE:BB)Sundial Growers (NASDAQ:SNDL), and AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC) are all on sale. Let’s look at why now might be the ideal time to go long on these stocks.
