3 stocks that did not back down to the virus
2020-03-20 • Updated
Walmart: standing tall
While a number of stocks lost up to 50% of their value because of the coronavirus, Walmart, although going through obvious turbulence, did significantly better than 99% of its peers. Ironically enough, its performance in 2020 is +1%. Under normal market conditions, it would hardly be a reason to brag. But when the market gets decimated sector by sector, this one-percent-strong performance is like the only whole stone left from a destroyed tower.
Amazon: with a straight face
The same can be said about Amazon. In fact, there is no visual sign of a problem with this stock. Yes, there was a sharp rise to $2,190, then a fall to $1,690, some would say “that’s a 22% drop!”. True, but the drop taken alone brings little constructive information. You have to look strategic: the stock was at $1915 at the beginning of 2020. Since then, it made its rise and fall, but now it is almost exactly there. Trading at $1,878, it is only a few dozens of dollars away from $1,915. In view of the enormous almost two-thousand-dollar value of this stock, this $37 gap may be well forgiven.
Netflix: not bad
Netflix entered January 2020 at $322 per share. Currently, it trades at $332. Although it suffered a plunge to $295 from its recent top at $390 – “almost a 100$ drop for a previously-400-dollar stock”, one can say – still, we look at the results. The virus is still around, some stocks are still down, but Netflix is $10 higher than where it was before the virus-caused crisis. Well done and keep the mark.
The Netflix stock (NFLX), with a market cap of $145.17B and a whooping 10 000+% rise since its inception 16 years ago, experienced some turbulence for a short period last year while trading around the $250 share price. However, the NFLX stock quickly recovered and rose to over $300 towards the end of the previous quarter of 2022.
The Q4 earnings season has been interesting, mainly because of the turbulent global economic outlook. On this premise, analysts forecast a disappointing performance for several stocks ahead of the Q4 earnings report publishing.
Last year was tough for the Japanese yen. USDJPY gained more than 30% over 2022, striking above 150 in October. While anticipation of slower Fed rate hikes pulled the pair below the 130 level at the start of 2023, the speculations over the destiny of BOJ’s yield control policy grabbed the attention of the Japanese assets in the middle of January. What lies ahead for traders of the Japanese yen?
