3 stocks that did not back down to the virus
Information is not investment advice
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.

Hold onto your hats, folks! The Japanese yen took a nosedive after the Bank of Japan (BOJ) left its ultra-loose policy settings unchanged, including its closely watched yield curve control (YCC) policy. But wait, there's more! The BOJ also removed its forward guidance, which had previously pledged to keep interest rates at current or lower levels. So, what's the scoop? Market expectations had been subdued going into the meeting, but some were still hoping for tweaks to the forward guidance to prepare for an eventual exit from the bank's massive stimulus
