After a great start to the year with stocks up around 5% in January, share prices are now being challenged by the implications of the Coronavirus and its potential impacts on the Chinese economy, China-dependent businesses such as Apple and Caterpillar and even economies such as Australia, as well as the related listed businesses that could be negatively affected.

I’ve always argued here that a sell off this year was on the cards but because the global and US economies were on the up, thought it would be a buying opportunity. This virus challenge has added a negative variable I’m not sure about.

The strange viral-affected investing world right now has got me thinking about safer investing plays and something called the ‘Dogs of the Dow’ (DOD) strategy.
