I don't know whether if its a good time to invest on stocks due to the Covid-19 situation around the countries, plus now US is going to sue China for causing this virus spread. How do you think this will affect the markets?

I am thinking to invest on food & beverage, healthcare and hospital in SG, US, CHN stocks. Or should I invest on ETF index, Trust, Funds to play safe? I would like to hear the expert of investors in Seedly community. Thank you.

I think getting a globally diversified porfolio, which will track the performance of the world's economy, can be good since you do not have a firm idea on what you want.

Food and beverage companies can be resilient, especially if they are staples. However, these companies also tend to be more pricey. Healthcare REITS can be worth considering since there will be a gloabal awareness of the inadequacy of medical facilities and the ageing population. Personally, I wouldn't go for China stocks since their regulations, for example on accouting procedures, are not as stringent. If you want exposure to China, you can look at Hong Kong instead.

All these are just rough thoughts on the industry, you will still have to do in-depth research on the stock/fund yourself.​​​
