The UK’s record on coronavirus has been patchy at best but the nation’s vaccine rollout is a success so far.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson set a robust target of giving 15million elderly and vulnerable people their first dose of the vaccine by 15 February and despite many doubts this has been hit.

We are still a long way from reopening the economy but talk of a path out of lockdown – hopefully for the final time – is giving hope to British business.

So does this set up those company shares that have suffered the most from lockdown for success in the second part of this year?

On this episode of the Investing Show, Richard Hunter and Simon Lambert discuss the sectors and companies that could see a rerating and benefit from the momentum-driven market turning their attention to them.

As firmer news of a road map out of lockdown emerged today, shares ranging from travel firm TUI to cinema chain Cineworld soared. 

Potential stocks that could benefit include banks, airlines, pubs and hospitality firms and Richard explains that it is not just UK investor interest that matters but international investors too.

Also, on this show, Richard and Simon discuss the fallout from the GameStop saga and why Tesla may have decided to buy into bitcoin.
