In a recent Motley Fool article titled “Stay-at-Home Stocks Send Markets Soaring Friday” the author discusses some of the companies that are doing very well despite the Corona Virus and associated quarantine.
The Corona Virus has caused partial or in some cases complete shutdown across most of the country. This has forced people to stay inside and away from crowds, also called a quarantine. This pandemic has given an incredible boost to many stocks in the Stay-at-Home sector. A reference to companies that service their clientele at their homes.
Some of the companies the writer mentioned that are doing very well are; Zoom (NASDAQ: ZM), Shopify (NYSE: SHOP), Peloton Interactive (NASDAQ: PTON), Livongo Health (NASDAQ: LVGO), and Teladoc Health (NYSE: TDOC)
The one thing all these companies have in common is that customers can use them from home. COVID-19 has completely changed the way we do things. Now we shop more remotely (Shopify), see our doctors and get our health advice online (Teladoc Health and Livingo Health, respectively), exercise at home (Peloton Interactive), and often times most important, work from home (Zoom).
Under the current situation these companies seem well positioned, here is a company that could also do well….
(OTC PINK: SNWR)
Independent musicians total 12 million, and make up the fastest growing sector in the music industry. Without the backing of a record label, they often struggle to promote and get their music distributed to the public.
Sanwire Corporation, (OTC Pink: SNWR) through its wholly owned subsidiary, Intercept Music (www.interceptmusic.com), provides independent musicians a platform to distribute and promote their music utilizing a software as a service (SAAS) model. Intercept has a product line that engages artists early in their career, and then stays with them as they grow.

However, musicians may elect to use, if invited by the company, the Intercept PLUS label services program once they have at least 10,000 fans and meet other minimums. For this Intercept is generating fees in the form of a percentage of sales.
