It seems to me that companies like Apple which provide tools that can help during a crisis (eg, webcams, online entertainment/movies/books) should be benefitting. So I was expecting more. Maybe that's why their stock fell.

My previous car had Fender audio and it was fantastic. As things are now, I’d never consider another Apple audio system or even these AirPods headphones based on my negative experience with Beats.
And I hasten to add I have absolutely no reason to trash Apple without cause. Most of my personal wealth is tied to their stock.
This is the most overblown BS I have seen in my lifetime. Pure hype. The entirety of the American media should be dissolved for creating this panic.
Corona killed what, less than 100 Americans? Swine Flu killed 23,000 Americans, nothing. Measles? Nothing. H1N1? Nothing. EBOLA? Not a damned thing.

Glad I have cash on hand because the market is having the sale of the century, and all its going to cost is the economy, and thousands of jobs.
Shame on all of you lemmings who are playing along.
