Describe your best performing stock for this week and identify company- specific, industry, market or economic reasons for its performance. Do the same for your worst performing stock. Calculate your portfolio’s total return since its original acquisition. This past week we have been bombarded by the press reports concerning the worsening of the coronavirus issue worldwide. Also reported has been the dramatic loss of trillions of dollars in the U.S. and international stock markets. Provide your opinion as to whether the U.S. and international community are headed into a recession or alternatively, will there be a recovery in the market as we approach Presidential Election Day in November 2020? In your post reflect on: 1) the effects of the actions taken by the Trump Administration relative to travel bans, virus testing and a recent decision to bolster the price of oil by buying enough oil to top off the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve and 2) the impact of Biden (likely Democratic candidate) or Trump on the markets/economy if he is the winner in November 2020. 1. Intel has been my best performing stock for this week regardless of the hard economic time which is currently being experienced worldwide. It has become very difficult to picture out the economic effect that Covid-19 has on the stock market as there are numerous stock markets which have been negatively impacted by the pandemic disease including all my five stock. Intel being my best performing stock this week went up by 9.8 points as compared to the previous week. The price is known to have dropped, but then the coronavirus pandemic in other parts of the world may also affect the market’s sale. As soon as the Covid-19 virus is managed and the global economy resumes to normal, the Intel business is anticipated to have a significant growth. It is due Intel will be able to normalize its operations and strategize on how to increase its operations to realize more sales. 2. NetEase has been my worst performing stock for this week. It is an outcome which is as a result of the outbreak of Covid-19 which has been experienced all parts of the world. NetEase had a decrease of stock of 8% which has been low since 2010. The stock is known to have a -2.96% rate of return which was an outcome of one instance which resulted to the fall of the NetEase price. It is due to the rapid spread of the Covid-19 all over the world recently. This has impacted to the imbalance in the demand and supply of the NetEase products as well as services. 3. Stock Price Update (April 9) Current Value Holding Gain/Loss Dividends Received Total Return % Intel 57.14 57,140 (2,160) 330 -3.09% Exxon Mobil 43.13 56,069 (34,619) 1,131 -36.93% Johnson & Johnson 141.23 141,230 (4,160) 950 -2.21% Apple 267.99 294,789 (45,804) 847 -13.20% NetEase 327.35 327,350 (11,020) 1020 -2.96% Portfolio’s Total Return: -9.59% 4. Taking account of the Dow Jones Industrial Average as of April 9, 2020 is at 23,719.37 points, it is possible that the Dow Jones Industrial Average will be at 27,750 points in December 31st, 2020. This prediction is based on the data that Dow was high in the beginning of the year with 29,000 points before the effect of Covid-19 affecting its business objectives and operations. Since the outbreak of Covid-19, it has been witnessed that Dow has reduced in points on April 2nd, 2020, but in a week he will have a back up to more than 20,000 points. Additionally, the presidential elections will have to rise as well as with the end of pandemic Covid-19, Dow will slowly rise as the economic routines normalizes.
