Tech Companies Could Be In Focus As Apple Pulls Out Of SXSW; Volatility Flares Up
The roller coaster isn’t over yet. Market volatility is continuing as investors try to sort out what they think are proper valuations for stocks amid the threat the coronavirus poses to the global economy and corporate profits. But it’s a moving target as cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, continue to spread abroad and within the United States, where California declared a state of emergency. This morning’s activity seems to be focused on the International Monetary Fund’s announcement that it thinks global growth this year will be below last year’s 2.9% and the International Air Transport Association’s prediction that global airlines could lose $113 billion if the outbreak continues to spread. Meanwhile, Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL ) has joined other high-profile companies in canceling its plans to attend the South by Southwest music and tech festival. As a sign of the unease among market participants, oil prices turned negative this morning despite a reported provisional OPEC agreement to cut production if Russia agrees.

Biden's plan would allow people to keep their existing insurance coverage and expand Obamacare. Read more on Business Insider . Health insurance stocks led market gains on Wednesday following Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders' Super Tuesday performance. The renewed optimism came after former Vice President Joe Biden won key delegates during Super Tuesday over Sanders. The wins solidified Biden's place as a front-runner in the presidential race and calmed some investors who prefer his more moderate policies to Sanders'. Stocks moved higher Wednesday following Biden's success, rebounding from investor panic around the coronavirus outbreak that roiled markets in recent weeks. The S&P 500 Healthcare Index is up 3.6% on Wednesday, led by a 5% gain in the healthcare equipment and services sub-index, and beating out the S&P 500 index's 1.9% increase.
