8 Large-Cap Anti-Coronavirus Stock Winners During This Stock Market Sell-Off

When the Dow Jones industrial average has seen a drop of close to 3,000 points in less than a week, and with the new U.S. community-acquired coronavirus case hurting the markets, most investors assume that everything would be down with the broader markets. After all, a 10% correction in the major indexes is not something the market usually sees in a short time. It turns out that the coronavirus pandemic fears may actually have some benefits for having such defensive business models. 24/7 Wall St. tracks some of the stocks that are either defensive in general or that are actually benefiting from the fears, although we have left off the risky small-cap stocks that have had coronavirus announcements but that are so speculative they still may not exist in a year or two. We screened out the companies with market caps under $2 billion to avoid speculative stocks, and we did not cluster many companies that are in the same industry to avoid covering sectors. Not all “trade defensive” strategies worked. Even with the record lows in Treasury yields, the gas/electric utilities were not up on the day as fears that slower business activity would lower power demand. Clorox Co. (NYSE: CLX)...

What The Qassem Soleimani Black Swan Means For Markets

Just two trading days into 2020, a geopolitical black swan the size of an elephant splashed into the waters of history. The assassination of the second-most powerful man in Iran will echo through history, but what does it mean for markets? One of the defining features of markets over the past half-decade has been the disparity between, on one hand, news-based measures of policy and political uncertainty, and on the other, market-based measures of volatility.

It should probably go without saying that the main reason most people buy an electric vehicle

It should probably go without saying that the main reason most people buy an electric vehicle (EV) is because they want to reduce or eliminate their usage of gasoline. Even if you aren’t terribly concerned about your ecological footprint, the fact of the matter is that electricity prices are so low in many places that an electric vehicle is cheaper to operate than one which burns gas at $2.50+ USD a gallon. Another advantage, at least in theory, is reduced overal maintenance cost. While a modern EV will of course be packed with sensors and complex onboard computer systems, the same could be said for nearly any internal combustion engine (ICE) car that rolled off the lot in the last decade as well. But mechanically, there’s a lot less that can go wrong on an EV. For the owner of an electric car, the days of oil changes, fouled spark plugs, and the looming threat of a blown head gasket are all in the rear-view mirror. Unfortunately, it seems the rise of high-tech EVs is also ushering in a new era of unexpected failures and maintenance woes. Case in point, some owners of older model Teslas are finding they’re at risk of being stranded on the side of the road by a failure most of us...

On our list, you’ll find some of the best CBD oil the UK has to offer, based on effectiveness, quality, safety and overall value.

LED filaments started showing up in light bulbs a few months back. [Mike] discovered that the strips

LED filaments started showing up in light bulbs a few months back. [Mike] discovered that the strips are available in bulk from ebay and Alibaba. Always keen to work with new LED technologies, [Mike] ordered a few for experimenting and posted the results on his [mikeselectricstuff] YouTube channel. He also added the information to his website. The filaments consist of 28 LEDs connected in series. The blue LEDs are covered by the typical yellow phosphors to make them glow white. It’s interesting to note that some of the filaments use a removable silicone sleeve to hold the phosphor coating, while others are coated with a resin material. The LEDs themselves are bare dies mounted to a metal strip and joined by bond wires. The entire strip can be bent, but be careful, or you’ll break the fragile bond wires. The strips do require a fair bit of voltage to operate. The entire strip runs best at around 75 and 10~15 mA, while putting out about 1 Watt of light. [Mike] tested a strip to destruction by pumping 40 mA through it. Predictably the strip went out when the bond wires melted. The surprising part was that the strip blinked back on as the wires cooled and re-connected. The strip and...
