The overall market has become jittery, and with each new domestic Ebola case that is discovered—such as the health care worker in Dallas—there is one group of stocks in particular that will continue to fall: travel and leisure.
Flash back to a few weeks ago and the market focus was on the decline in fuel costs, with Ebola in the back of investors' minds. Now the focus has shifted, with Ebola front and center. As a result, the focus also moved to travel and leisure stocks.
Wondering which portion of your travel and leisure portfolio could be affected? Look no further than cruise stocks.
Jim Cramer thinks the disruption to this group has been so radical that, if not for Ebola, these stocks would have otherwise only suffered about half of their current damage during the general selloff.
He even recently profiled cruise stocks as having tremendous momentum because they are main beneficiary when oil prices drop. However even Cramer knows that investing is about being adaptable and being able to adjust your perspective as things change.
