The Pros' Top 5 Industrial Stocks to Buy
Industrials stocks have been slammed so far in 2020, and that has Wall Street's analysts pounding the table for select names in the beaten-down sector.

There's little wonder why. The sweeping coronavirus pandemic and related lockdowns have derailed economies around the globe. As a result, the highly cyclical industrials sector is off more than 12% year-to-date. That lags the broader market by a wide margin. 

Of course, anywhere you find carnage, you'll find a few bargains, too. And analysts recently have targeted a few industrial stocks to buy for their apparent value and growth prospects.

To get a sense of where those discounts might lie, we surveyed the S&P 500 for industrial sector stocks with some of the strongest analyst ratings on Wall Street, according to S&P Capital IQ.

Here's how it works: S&P Capital IQ surveys analysts' stock calls and scores them on a five-point scale, where 1.0 equals a Strong Buy and 5.0 is a Strong Sell. Any score lower than 2.5 means that analysts, on average, rate the stock as a Buy. Scores of 1.5 and below mean the stock is a Strong Buy. Either way, the closer a stock's score gets to 1.0, the more bullish analysts are about its prospects.

After sorting through the S&P 500, we found buy-rated stocks across the industrial sector, from data analytics to defense contractors. Read on as we look at five of the top-rated industrial stocks to buy in these turbulent times.

BofA Sets Aside Billions for Soured Loans; Shares Decline
(Bloomberg) -- Bank of America Corp.'s profit slid 52% as it joined rivals in preparing for an onslaught of consumer defaults spurred by the pandemic's economic fallout.Profit at the consumer-banking unit plunged 98% as the coronavirus shuttered much of the U.S. economy and caused tens of millions of Americans to lose their jobs. The company allocated $5.1 billion for loan losses in the second quarter, the most since 2010, as Bank of America joined its biggest rivals in predicting pain to come that contrasts with stock market optimism for a quick economic rebound.Calling it "the most tumultuous period since the Great Depression," Chief Executive Officer Brian Moynihan said in a statement that "strong capital markets results provided an important counterbalance to the Covid-19-related impacts on our consumer business."With its 4,300 branches across the country, Bank of America is often seen as a bellwether for the U.S. consumer. Government stimulus measures and bank forbearance have kept some individuals and businesses afloat, but the largest U.S. lenders used the first full quarter with the pandemic to prepare for coming pain.JPMorgan Chase & Co., Wells Fargo & Co. and Citigroup Inc. set aside almost $28 billion of credit-loss provisions when they reported results earlier this week, citing a deteriorating outlook.Shares of Charlotte, North Carolina-based Bank of America slipped 3.5% to $23.75 at 7:44 a.m. in early New York trading.
