Right now, the focus of FutureMoneyTrends.com is to make sure all readers are as UPDATED as possible on the Covid-19 pandemic.
If you watched the stock market crash over the past few weeks, you weren’t alone, and it probably concerned you at least little. But there’s reason to be at least a little upbeat.
So many people have sold off their stocks to mitigate losses. That brings an incredible opportunity for those who are interested in long term investing to make some moves right now. At this time, it’s important to think about the outcomes of this pandemic. Humans are working diligently and around the clock to find a vaccine or at the very least, medications that can help alleviate the symptoms in those who suffer severely.
Because of the shutdown of the entire United States economy, you could consider positioning your portfolio for a recession. But you can make some money by owning a lot of recession-proof “anti-viral” stocks, many of which are also in healthcare.
Make sure you’ve got an emergency fund in place with 3-6 months’ worth of expenses saved up before investing. This will protect you if the worst happens and you have no income. Most are thinking only of the present, the here and now and are not looking forward to the opportunities.
Because most companies will be impacted by the coronavirus in some way, it’s wise to understand that and make your investing decisions with a clear head. Some companies are, in fact, operating from a position of strength and you could stand to come out way ahead if you prepare to do so now.

Some companies that I’ve been looking at:
Zoom Video Communications (NASDAQ:ZM) is the best pure play in video conferencing. I’ve used their services several times since being on lockdown, as have many others I know. Additionally, they’ve offered their services free to schools to help out during closures. Video chatting with colleagues or family members is easy. The platform is known for its free-to-use tier and ease of use, while also being lauded for its reliability. The company has been able to scale the number of users rapidly to accommodate the surge in demand that accompanied a growing remote workforce caused by the outbreak. The Motley Fool also agrees that this one could be a good investment.
Teladoc Health (NYSE:TDOC) has emerged as a key player since the coronavirus outbreak. The company announced that during a one-week period earlier this month, its virtual medical visits have increased 50% year over year. That growth is still escalating as people are stuck in the homes. While Teladoc was seeing patient volumes consistent with peak flu seasons, demand for the service spiked mid-week, with as many as 15,000 visits per day and soaring to 100,000 for the full week.
Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) should come to most minds. The company closed out 2019 with more than 167 million subscribers, with expectations to add another seven million in the first quarter thanks to the lockdown plaguing the globe. While the company has significant market share in the U.S., there’s plenty of opportunity in international markets right now too. Anecdotal evidence suggests that its forecast may be too conservative, as the EU asked Netflix to throttle streaming rates and several analysts have found evidence of increasing demand. Netflix can be a risky investment however, (the riskiest of all three) because the company has a lot of debt.
Because there are several companies working on medications and a vaccine for the coronavirus, it’s too soon to pinpoint which one would be best. All may be decent, however.
This is the time to think long term and brace yourself for the bumpy short term.
