Adding to Stocks During Covid-19

By Blog
The spread of Covid-19 has been referred to as a “black swan” event by some, meaning an occurrence with potentially severe consequences that were unpredictable. The consequences have certainly been severe with disruption to jobs, schools, and everyday life (though health experts would argue whether this was unpredictable). The first quarter of 2020 saw a nearly 35% market drop from the all-time highs of February, in a matter of weeks. The volatility index, or VIX, sometimes referred to as the “fear index” shot through the roof. In the short-term, the U.S. economy, along with many others across the globe, has…
