Despite the cautionary tone of Monday’s market, some stocks performed relatively well.
"There's no question that (the flu outbreak) is affecting some stocks, such as airlines and restaurants but it's clearly not a big enough issue to effect the outlook for the global economy," says Hugh Johnson, chief investment officer of Johnson Illington Advisors.
In that case, which names are worth a look?
Mexico based firms were just hammered and that doesn't make sense to me, says the Chairwoman. As a result I’m looking at Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico ; the sell-off makes valuations attractive. Or look at America Movil , she adds. It's a telephone company based in Latin America. I'd think it should actually benefit because people will want to call one another and check-in.
I’ve got my eye on Hess for options action, adds the Pit Boss. This stock really reacted violently to Monday's move in oil
I’d put Las Vegas Sands on your radar, adds the Negotiator. Also Marriott looks like a short to me with a tight stop.
