The spread of coronavirus and uncertainty of containment has created turmoil in the market. Every stock in the Dow Jones Industrials Average is down at least 4% and the index is down over 11%. American Express (AXP) - Get Report is the worst-performing stock this week as stocks crumbled this week.
Our premium writers on Real Money have been providing investment advice to subscribers all week to help make sense of the market sell-off. Here are the best investing ideas from Jim Cramer, James "Revshark" DePorre, Doug Kass, Bruce Kamich and Sarge Guilfoyle:
"We have to expect selling on Friday because the weekend is unlikely to bring good news, especially because we know that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which I do trust, is saying that it's not if, but when."
Jim shares 10 companies that should continue to work while we wait for a cure or a vaccine. These stocks include Nvidia (NVDA) - Get Report, Shopify (SHOP) - Get Report, and more. These stocks don't rely on China and shouldn't need big enterprise spending to survive.
James "Rev Shark" DePorre
"This market is all about the news flow and it is not going to provide much upside opportunity until there is more clarity, even if the headlines are bad... This market is all about the news flow and it is not going to provide much upside opportunity until there is more clarity. Even if the news is bad at least it will be better than the current uncertainty"
Rev Shark shares his game plan before the weekend and how you can protect your money during this market uncertainty.
"Over the last month, I had strenuously argued that speculation was running amok. Market structure posed heightened risk (as ETFs and risk parity thrust everyone on the same side of the long/bullish boat), the underlying foundation of profit and economic growth was unsound, there was growing political and policy risks, and that the possible supply chain and demand implications of the coronavirus were being ignored."
Doug shares why he thinks there are some buying opportunities in this uncertainty.
"The 200-day moving average line has an upward or positive slope but the On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line... has mirrored the action of the price line. Trading volume was not much to talk about during the pullback so the assumption is that investors largely stayed with their long positions."
Bruce shares one of the stocks that the charts are showing should recover before others.
"What if gym rats are going to look for other ways to exercise that do not expose themselves to grunting steroid freaks and spin classes stuffed with 20 or more sweaty, heavy breathers? On Tuesday evening, Planet Fitness (PLNT) - Get Report beat Q4 expectations for both earnings per share and revenue... Since releasing those results, Planet Fitness has been hit hard. Very hard."
The coronavirus causes worry about germs in the weight room, so Sarge proposes investing in this exercise option.
