This paper is to explore similarities and differences for various company’s stock performance based on a past pandemics, epidemic, or a new virus outbreak. Research shows that when an emergence of a new virus occurs, there is a pattern of volatility in the markets during that investors can capitalize on. Sectors like the airline and cruise industries experienced volatility due to travel ban or restriction for personal health precautions. Other sectors of business like the pharmaceutical industry can become even more volatile due to the demand for a vaccine or other preventative care. Past research has shown that the stock market had increased in 6 & 12 months after the epidemic and COVID 19 is following that trend.
