The legacy of the pandemic: remote working, isolation and skepticism

2023 will be the first full year after the pandemic. The Washington Post identifies the following global changes during lockdowns, vacations and quarantines:

  • remote work is no longer something extraordinary
  • the level of live communication has dropped even more
  • the era of easy money is over
  • gender contradictions have receded into the background
  • skeptics feel much better than others

The world has changed, and this is just the beginning.

The segment’s profitability was 60%, which was significantly ahead of any other sector in the S&P 500 index. Here are the leaders:

  • Occidental Petroleum (+122%)
  • Constellation Energy (+109%)
  • Hess (+94%)
  • Marathon Petroleum, Exxon, Schlumberger, APA, First Solar.
