For investors seeking to identify potential winners before the world emerges from the coronavirus crisis, seize the moment as now is the best time for stock picking since the financial crisis, according to Goldman Sachs. 

The historic sell-off has stretched the range of possible returns to the widest since 2009, setting the stage for stock pickers to shine, the bank said. Goldman found the stocks in the S&P 500 with the most attractive stock-picking opportunities.
