Coronavirus Infecting World Stock Markets

World stock markets plummet, driven by oil shock and coronavirus fears

The coronavirus initiated market sell-off has erased over (USD) $9 trillion in value from global stock markets over the past 9 days. 

There are many companies that are caught up in the global sell off even though they have not been directly impacted by the virus. 

Although such times present a doom and gloom mentality, money can be made when stocks have tanked. Baron Rothschild is famously credited with saying that “the time to buy is when there’s blood in the street”.  With that metaphor in mind, here are some of the largest capitalised stocks that have taken a significant hit. While nobody can be sure of the next move, we believe that these stocks are worth investigating further.
