2) Market Rally 2009 vs 2020

The current market rally has seen a similar bounce from the lows when compared to 2009. Economic conditions are still shaky. I would not be surprised if volatility were to pick back up with the election and Covid-19 developments.

3) Delta vs Clorox

Both these companies are household names, but Covid-19 has had drastically different impacts on the two. Clorox posted a year over year growth of +22% vs Delta’s -88% decline.

4) PENN Volatility

Penn National Gaming, Inc. purchased a 36% interest in Barstool Sports, Inc in January. The CEO of Barstool, Dave Portnoy, has made news recently day trading. New York Times called him the “Captain of the Day Traders”. He has a massive following on social media who watches him day trade. One of his largest holding is Penn stock which has been extremely volatile this year.
