How to Trade a Stock When the Unthinkable Happens

Keith Fitz-Gerald Mar 16, 2019

This week I’d like to address something that most investors never think about… how to trade a stock when the unthinkable happens.

The Boeing Co. (NYSE:BA) is a great example.

It’s a key defense contractor and a “must-have” stock, tied into several key Unstoppable Trends, including Technology, War, Terrorism & Ugliness, and Demographics.

The company’s under extreme pressure at the moment, and existing shareholders have taken a $26.6 billion buzzcut they didn’t sign up for.

For most investors, a situation like this is unthinkable.

One day, they buy a company based on super results, super products, or just super potential. Then… WHAM… the stock gets pounded.

Boeing opened, for example, a full 51.29 points lower Monday, following the crash of Ethiopian Airlines 737 Max 8 the day before – the second such crash in less than six months for a 737 Max 8 aircraft. Then, it dropped further, ultimately breaching $370 a share by Wednesday.

Thing is, this isn’t an isolated incident.

Here’s why and what you can do about it.
