Chinese Market Stocks Plunging Due to Coronavirus



Fears of coronavirus have affected the Dow Jones and S&P on Friday morning as the stocks have fallen down.

Amazon stocks went up earlier to a record high and a return to the club.

Western Digital, Vertex Pharmaceuticals, and Edwards Lifesciences also looking similar but not as bright as the one of Amazon stock.

IBM stocks rose. Also, it could be because of the stepping down of its Chief Executive Ginni Rometty.

On Thursday night, Visa missed on some sales and was cautious.

Its stock went down by 2.7% early Friday, whereas Caterpillar was topping its fourth-quarter earnings and revenue. Exxon Mobil fell short on earnings while Chevron got high on earnings but missed on sales.

These three major giants fell before opening. This was likely because of the coronavirus concerns, which affected crude oil and other industrial commodities.

On Thursday, the World Health Organization (WHO) has already declared a global public health emergency from coronavirus outbreak. On the other hand, trading and traveling due to the virus is still not limited.

The US, however, is discouraging people from traveling to China, whereas a lot of airlines have already canceled or cut short their flight to and from individual Chinese provinces.

From 1,982 cases, it rose to 9,692 on January 30 and has reached a death toll of 213 in China. Several dozen cases were confirmed out of mainland China. US confirmed the 6th case while the UK confirmed 2 of the same family while Russia has already one example.

Starbucks has closed thousands of its branches in China, and a lot of companies have extended the Lunar New Year celebration to prevent the spread of coronavirus. This is immense distress to companies that has some supply chains or production in China.

Amazon, on the other hand, rose from 6.47 to 7, with an increase of 21% to the $87.4 billion revenue. Some analysist was expecting that its earnings will go down to $4.05 and an income of $85.97 billion. Furthermore, its Amazon Web Services grew 34% to $9.95, also record-breaking.

The one-day shopping seems to be generating more than expected. It attracted more subscribers and customers. This, in hand, attracted more 3rdparty sellers to join in the club.

Amazon’s rival, Target, seemed to be getting the opposite. Its store sales underwhelmed the analysist as 2018 was better performing than 2019, providing that Target has been known to be the better retail performer last year. Again, the one-day shipping of Amazon beat a whole lot from the rival companies.

Another international Amazon is doing quite well too. Amazon japan raised its consumption tax from 8% to 10%, whereas India also did well during its 3rd and 4th quarters.
