It’s been another tough week in the markets as the S&P 500 recorded it’s worst five days in two years. Equities were a sea of red on Friday, particularly tech stocks, with the Nasdaq dropping -2.33% on the day.
If there was a sector to make money it was healthcare and there were some big gains for companies linked to the Ebola crisis. For example, Lakeland Industries Inc. ($LAKE) soared 125%. The company manufactures Hazmut suits, the type worn to protect against the virus.
