Jason McBride, Senior VP with Presidential Wealth Management, joins Kim to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Let’s stay positive and be thankful for all that we have. “Gratitude” is so important in our daily lives—we need to acknowledge the insights our family and friends offer to us and the food we eat, to name a few aspects that bring happiness to us.
Jason and Kim review other viruses that have hit American soil in the past. Are there any comparisons? Ebola, H1N1, SARS, and MARS are a few mentioned. What are the infection and mortality rates? None of them had the media hits that the Coronavirus is having, surpassing 2.1 billion media mentions in just 54 days. This media hysteria has fueled the decline of the stock market. Jason explains Follow Through Day and protection with Mutual Funds. Final thought, be careful of the “stay at home” stocks.
