The Federal Reserve's emergency bond-buying is slated to aid tech giants, automakers, and communications firms the most.

The central bank announced in late March it would begin buying corporate debt to boost market liquidity and lift firms through the coronavirus pandemic. The Secondary Market Corporate Credit Facility began by purchasing corporate-debt exchange-traded funds on May 12 and expanded the program in mid-June to include individual bond purchases.
