The Wuhan Virus Has Only Just Begun

There are reports out of Scotland that 4 people might have the Coronavirus. Three cities in China are now under orders of quarantine: Huanggang, Wuhan, and Ezhou.

Here are some other headlines worth your perusal.

I am posting these as I get them via my Twitter account. Feel free to fucking follow me there, since the blog is an antiquated form of prose.

Bottom line: Look towards stocks that performed well during the Ebola, SARS, and Zika scares. This is the flu, but on crack, and it will pass. But we’re in the beginning stages of it and before we can feel good about it dying down — we first need it to crest — which will entail many more people getting sick, unfortunately. Perhaps don’t serve and eat BAT SOUP — which is rumored to be the cause of the infection.

Nevertheless, I am actively scouring and trading stocks that should benefit. I placed a watchlist up in Exodus — dubbed ‘Contagion.’ Here’s a sneak peak.

As for the overall market, it might cause a brief sell off. I suspect this whole ordeal will be yesterday’s news within a fortnight.

    side note on NFLX:
    As has been reported, NFLX has decied to hide…err, change- it viewership reporting by saying that 2-minutes counts as a view instead of 70% of the showtime. They calim that this is enough time to assert that the view is intentional and not just cahnnel surfing. They said this would raise the average view rate of their shows by 35%.

    Another way to put this is that 1 out of 4 Netflix viewers watch a show for 2 minutes and then decied it is total crap and switch. This emphasizes waht I’ve been saying about NFLX: they only achieve growth through *quantity*, not *quality*. Hence, theire viewership rise but they still can’t generate postive cashflow because their spend rate is so high in order to maintain that viewership level. NFLX releases whole seasons, which again icnrease viewership – but again means that ecah of their viewers demadn more content becuase bing vieweing means that a whole season of a show will only entertain a viwere for a few days, isntead of a few weeks.

    Their US viewership is already peaking – and Asian viewers generate MUCH lower income levels.

      This stock is rangebound between $325 and $345. It will makea big move soon. The direction will liekly have nothing at all to do with NFLX, and will liekly be determiedn by the market.

      If the market doesn’t make a new ATH by the end of next week, NFLX will drop to near $316.

      If it does make a new ATH, then NFLX will likely close the gap to $362.

    Maybe the virus will kill off 60% of the world’s population.

    That would get our planet down to a manageable and
    sustainable 3 billion people. We should be so lucky.

      Careful what you wish for. Your family could be in the crosshairs. That might be good if your family consists of retards.

        You should be safe in your mother’s basement though, jerking forcefully to Apocalypse Now with no regard for human life.

          That is a great movie. Does your mother have it? I could watch it with her and jerk off in her face.

      “We should be so lucky.”

      Simple minds think of simple solutions. Did you see “Infinity War”? Big fan of Thanos?

      (Of course, Thanos at least decided to *randomly* wipe out people, but omniscient “genius” Tony Stark knew better and decided to wipe out only the “bad” people. Imagine if the US decided to nuke all of Japan’s, Italy’s, and Germany’s populations back in WW II. There are simpletons on this site that similarly think nuking Iran will make America safer).
