1. Background and Disclaimer

On the TV show “Mad Money w/ Jim Cramer” which is hosted by Mr. Jim Cramer, Cramer has been introducing the stocks whose prices are expected to rise in the future or which is benefiting from the economy despite slaggish economy due to outbreak of coronavirus. He called those stocks as “Stay-at-Home stock” in the show.

Since business impacts from coronuvirus have divided businesses into two groups: a group whose business has been hit hard (eg. travel industries, energy industries) and a group whose business has suffered just a little (or even benefited from coronavirs). Because of such situation, it seems Jim Cramer reached a theory that at this point it is better to invest to a group of industries that has been receiving little or no impact from Coronavirus pandemic, rather than investing to 500 S&P Fund because 500 S&P consists of both groups. And from this perspective, he introduced “Cramer’s COVID-19 Index” in his April 27, 2020 episode. The Cramer’s COVID-19 Index consists of around 100 stocks (17 sectors) whose prices have been risen, or expect to rise even more.

Please note that this article does not intend to say that it is the time to buy the stocks mentioned here, as the prices of some of the stocks listed in the index might be already risen too high. Please make individual decisions regarding when to buy any stocks. Also, please understand that this article does not recommend investments in any particular stock.

In the May 26, 2020 episode of Mad Money, 10 stocks out of 100 listed in the “Cramer Covid-19 Index” were replaced with other stocks. In this respect, I posed a separate article which lists revised Cramer Covid-19 Index. Please refer to the below article for the revised index.

Today's topic is revised "Cramer's Covid-19 Index". It was originally introduced in his show, Mad Money w/ Jim Cramer, in April 2020. The Index consists of about 100 stocks that are expected to perform well even under the Coronavirus pandemic. This article relates to revised version which is published in May 2020.
