We all want the coronavirus to die off. It is the government’s job to spin reality to keep up the country’s morale. It is the prudent investor’s job to discern the truth.
The key questions for investors are: Where is the bottom in the stock market? Should you buy or sell stocks now?
Let’s examine with the help of a chart.

Note the following:
• Look at the last bar. After touching the top band of the mother of support zones, the stock market has moved above the top band of the support/resistance zone. From a technical perspective, this shows significant optimism in the face of worsening coronavirus news.
• The chart shows that RSI (relative strength index) is nowhere near the level shown at the last major bottom. This indicates there is significant risk in this market that investors are underappreciating.
• The chart shows the Arora call on Jan. 22 that the coronavirus could cause problems for the stock market. This call was repeated on Jan. 30. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 Index SPX, was on its way to new high Feb. 19.

• Abbott Laboratories ABT has come up with a coronavirus test that takes five minutes. The revenues from the coronavirus test will dwarf those that Abbott is likely to lose due to issues related to coronavirus. Investors are running up the stock.
• Johnson & Johnson JNJ is making great progress on a coronavirus vaccine. Johnson & Johnson is likely to sell the vaccine at cost. This will have no material increase in earnings. Investors are running up the stock.
• General Motors GM will make ventilators. It is selling them at cost, so they will have no impact on earnings. Investors are running up the stock.
• Medtronic MDT makes ventilators, which are a small portion of its business. At the same time, Medtronic is suffering because its sales are likely to drop due to the postponement of non-essential surgeries. Investors aren’t seeing the whole picture. And, yes, they are running up the stock….Read more at MarketWatch.
