I feel ya. But Microsoft isn't going to default, and so the quotes no don't really matter, do they? Not unless you have to sell, or you're interested in buying.

I think it's evident that cash-constrained entities have found themselves forced to sell anything of value, which includes high-quality bonds, preferreds, and the like.

I've got cash, and I'm looking to buy. But not yet.

We'll get through this. Covid is not Ebola. Total # cases in China has been basically flat for weeks now (obvious data issues aside), S. Korea is seeing light on the horizon. If everyone essentially sheltered in place for a few weeks, we'd come out the other side pretty much OK. I'm expecting Italy to show signs of recovery imminently. We'll see.

(PS: I say this as someone who'll turn 71 later this month. I'm well aware of the significant variation in impact by age group.)
