Coronavirus Stock Market Crash 2020: When’s the Best Time to Buy Stocks?

The coronavirus stock market crash is in progress. The storm came fast and furious with the U.S. and Canadian stock markets falling about 21% in a month. And that was after they were somewhat lifted by a relief rally on Friday.

The turnaround or contrarian stock ideas I discussed, in my last video, were way too early to be considered. My positions in Carnival (NYSE:CCL, LSE:CCL) and Booking Holdings (NASDAQ:BKNG)stocks, respectively, are down 40% and 18%.

In the previous video, I said Carnival stock could triple one’s investment. At the current levels, it can be a six-bagger over five years, if it makes a comeback. 

Of course, the coronavirus pandemic can drag these stocks even lower. In the worst-case scenario, Carnival could go bankrupt. However, it’s too early to conclude that it will. The probability of it going bankrupt should be slim given it is a leading global cruise company and has an A-grade balance sheet

How the Coronavirus is Affecting Stocks

Stocks are driven by their underlying businesses. Due to the coronavirus, Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) will begin shutting down its theme parks in Florida and Paris and new departures for Disney Cruise Line starting this weekend for a month. However, it’ll continue to pay its employees.

These follow the forced shutdowns of its parks in Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Japan. Without a doubt, all of these suspended operations will pressure Disney’s near-term earnings.

Across Italy, Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) is closing its stores until April 3, while Burger King, a part of Restaurant Brands (NYSE:QSR, TSX:QSR), will remain closed until the end of the health emergency

It’s no wonder Disney stock has fallen 27% since its high in February. Starbucks stock has dropped 22%, and Restaurant Brands’ stock value is slashed 31%.

One of his famous quotes is

Invest in what you know.

So, what do we know? We come into contact with many companies every day. For example, in the past week, you might have gotten a quick bite at Burger King, Tim Hortons, or Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen and notice that the quick-service restaurant was buzzing with people.

This triggers you to do more research and realize that these franchises are actually all under the same company, Restaurant Brands (TSX:QSR)(NYSE:QSR).
