Just when you thought it was safe to buy any stock – selected at random via Scrabble letters – on any dip, with levered money you can’t afford to lose, COVID-19 reappears in size to steal the jam out of your donut.
Last Friday saw surges in COVID cases across many states and news that Apple would be re-closing stores in a handful of states. That sent stocks tumbling. Today – after a few days of exuberant dip-buying, those same states hitting new record highs (and more Apple store closures) sparked an even more impressive plunge (and was not helped by The IMF’s downbeat forecast for the global economy)…
- 0905ET California COVID-19 cases rise 3.9% or +7,149 to 190,222 (up from +5,019)
- 0938ET Texas reported a 7.3% rise in Covid-19 hospitalizations to 4,389 from 4,092 yesterday.
- 1033ET *FLORIDA COVID-19 CASES RISE 5.3% VS. PREVIOUS 7-DAY AVG. 3.7%
- 1130ET *HOUSTON-AREA INTENSIVE CARE UNITS ARE AT 97% OF CAPACITY: CITY
- 1140ET *NEW YORK, N.J. AND CONNECTICUT ORDER VISITORS TO QUARANTINE
- 1400ET *CALIFORNIA HOSPITALIZATIONS UP 29% IN 14 DAYS, NEWSOM SAYS
- 1440ET *APPLE TO RE-CLOSE 7 STORES IN HOUSTON, TX ON COVID-19 SPIKE
All building on one another to slam stocks lower (led by Small Caps) ending the 8-day win streak in Nasdaq (there was a late-day bounce on chatter of $1 trillion stimulus again but a $3bn MoC ruined that fun and games)…
