Just some ideas:
“CODX”, maker of diagnostic kits for Covid-19 could go vertical once approved by FDA/CDC. The stock has already jumped 400% on news that their patented test kits offer results in 45-min, as opposed to 48-hours to send samples for testing at various state labs. They also advertise to be more accurate than the CDC tests, which have already given some “false-positives”.
“TOMZ”, is also under the radar, maker of sterilization machines, already approved/adopted by China. Could be in high demand if the virus spreads as rapidly in the U.S.
There is a slew of vaccine makers jumping on the bandwagon to develop a successful vaccine, but to the victor will go the spoils of that race. Even Israel has recently promised they will have a valid vaccine in “weeks”, but most virologist view that as a small miracle since animal testing, human testing Phase I/II/III would require months per phase before approval for mass production.

Also, checkout Ligand (LGND). The stock just started spiking on Friday’s news that company CEO made a statement that it is helping find a cure for the coronovirus. Can someone with an insight on the company’s products make comment on efficacy of the company to produce the vaccine for the virus? Is this stock good to own?
