As two potentially major hurricanes are brewing in the Atlantic Ocean, investors bid up shares that stand to benefit from increased sales of plywood and generators and sold shares that would be hurt by damage claims.
Hurricane Florence could strike a direct blow on the southeast U.S. later this week. Florence strengthened to a Category 4 storm on Monday morning, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Home Depot and Lowe's shares each rose nearly 2 percent in trading Monday, while generator manufacturer Generac stock popped 5.7 percent and roofing supplier Beacon rose 7.3 percent. Generac hit a 4½ high in trading.
Insurance stocks sank as Florence rolled closer, with Travelers and Allstate each falling by about 2 percent and high-end real estate insurer Chubb falling 0.8 percent.
