A Lockdown Share

Share On Facebook

In this virus hit market there are a few shares that are benefitting. One was a fairly obvious buy given I had just bought its services.


When I did a seminar at a hotel on march 9th I never knew that would be the last one I could do in a hotel for some time.

I was due to host one on March 23rd and the nearer it got to the time, the more anxious delegates and me got. Should we take a risk? A lot were up for it, I wasn’t sure but then the decision was taken for us.

But people still wanted a seminar and the only way was online. Best app apparently? Zoom!

I bought a subscription to Zoom and held the March 23rd seminar online. And despite a few tech problems – mainly my fault like pulling the plug out of my computer by mistake – it worked surprisingly well. So well I bought Zoom shares and though volatile they have done rather well.

The shares seem to go up on a down day in the market when markets feel we will be in lockdown for longer. They zoom up when things look gloomy, I presume because people think more people will need Zoom.

I wonder whether longer term there is more upside for Zoom? After all now, I will probably still hold seminars online as well as meeting people in a hotel. They will continue to get money from me and I suspect in the new world online conferences will still be a big thing.

After all, air travel is likely to get more expensive and perhaps people will be too scared to travel till a vaccine in approved. Which could see more zoom for Zoom.

If you’d like to spend a day with me and online Zoom, the next two seminars are sold out but there is space for the one in May.  Dates of future events are at my website
