ANIL JAGTIANI | NAKA TECHNOLOGIES (NAKA)

FEATURING CHRISTOPHER COLUCCIO, CEO & KEITH NEWELL, CFO AT TECHWORKS CONSULTING, INC.

TELL US ABOUT HOW YOU/ YOUR COMPANY STARTED. I have worked in the IT Services industry for over 20 years and through my journey I developed an amazing team which led me to realize I had everything I needed to build a successful company of my own. I had a goal of building an amazing culture with a people-centric approach similar to great companies such as Zappos, Netflix, Apple and Google. With that vision, we launched our state-of-the-art office in Hauppauge, that caters to anyone that is looking to join a family atmosphere with an exceptional work environment. I wanted to name the company after pride, passion and integrity, where clients trust our diligence and dedication. The name Naka comes from the town in Mumbai, India where I grew up. Humble beginnings gave me the drive to pursue the American dream of starting my own company.

WHAT WAS A TURNING POINT FOR YOU/YOUR COMPANY? Naka was built by leaders who have worked together for over 10 years and have a proven track record with commitment to high performance in the industry. We hit the ground running and we experienced rapid growth while we were challenged with credit lines for the millions in product we needed to procure for our clients. I decided to invest all my assets into the business, confidently knowing there was no turning back for the sake of the great team I brought on with me. We met all challenges with funding in our first year and were granted unlimited credit by most of our suppliers and distributors relying on the growth we had experienced. It was a fairly easy decision to calculate the risk when you have a team that is loyal and dedicated to the success of the organization. We are now known as one of the top firms on Long Island in our industry for the risk we all took but more importantly, the passion we all put into our work.

April 2020 - The HIA-LI Reporter Page 4

WHAT IS YOUR PHILOSOPHY AT NAKA TECHNOLOGIES? Corporate culture is one of the key drivers for the success or failure of an organization. Culture sets the tone of every company and it is the foundation and guiding principles of Naka. My management style has always been to empower my employees. This helps form leaders with a value and vision that determine what the organization stands for. Our creative approach helps Naka better position clients by conceptualizing and building innovative solutions. This cultivates our people to go against the grain in this competitive landscape. We don’t see rules; we only see the possibilities! With this being said, we ensure that our culture and work ethic is infused into our client relationships. No matter how much technology we deal with, ultimately its always about the people!

“Our creative approach helps Naka better position clients by conceptualizing and building innovative solutions.” ANIL JAGTIANI | NAKA TECHNOLOGIES (NAKA)

Dear HIA-LI Members, Courage is our greatest weapon against fear. We all possess untapped reservoirs of courage, and now is the time to reach within, find that courage, and put it to work. As the Coronavirus continues to impact our community, HIA-LI continues to stand on the front lines with the latest on critical resources for your business. Help is available, and there are lots of ways we can help others, too. Suffolk County HIA-LI is actively participating in Suffolk County’s COVID-19 Business Response Task Force. We’re also serving as a critical communication conduit. Suffolk County has created a steadily updated webpage, http://suffolkcountyny.gov/bru, that consolidates information and resources for businesses. The site includes: • • • • • •

Information on Suffolk County’s Business Recovery Unit Business Impact Survey Suffolk County’s Business Recovery Plan Operational Restrictions/ Closures for Employers Employer Resources Workforce Support Links

As you know from previous disasters, our ability to secure recovery funding will mirror our ability to demonstrate need, and to document our economic and workforce losses. With this in mind, Suffolk County has created an Economic and Workforce Impact Survey to help capture and calculate monetary losses to businesses and workers. The survey must be as comprehensive as possible in documenting all the damage that businesses and workers are sustaining. Fill out the survey at https://suffolkcountyny.force.com/public/ request/DOLBUSIMP/details.

April 2020 - The HIA-LI Reporter Page 6

Suffolk County’s Business Recovery Unit’s (BRU) dedicated email and phone line can also help businesses with questions about weathering this crisis. Contact the BRU at: business.recovery@ suffolkcountyny.gov or dial its hotline at 311. Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone is working with New York State to create a real-time Business Response Plan, a fluid document that can help businesses with emergency planning. Check the Suffolk County website for updates. Text COVIDSUFFOLK to 67283 to receive emergency updates from Suffolk County. Small Business Administration: Disaster Relief The U.S. Small Business Administration offers designated states low-interest federal disaster loans up to $2 million for working capital to small businesses suffering substantial economic injury as a result of the pandemic. Contact SBA’s Disaster Assistance Customer Service Center at 800-659-2955 (TTY: 800-877-8339) or email disastercustomerservice@ sba.gov. SBA’s New York District Office has a Long Island Branch in Hauppauge dedicated to assisting and

guiding Long Island’s small businesses. They’re at 631-454-0750. The SBA Long Island Branch Office is also the home of the Long Island SCORE Chapter at 631-454-0771 or http://longisland.score.org. Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) The SBDCs and the SBA can provide support services through their Economic Injury Disaster Loan program. Here’s their contact information: SBDC in Stony Brook: 631-632-9070 sbdc@stonybrook.edu SBDC in Farmingdale: 934-420-2765 sbdc@farmingdale.edu Appointments can be scheduled in either office through this link: http://nysbdc.org/appointment.html. New York State New York State has created a web page for all offers of assistance. The page provides clear directions about where people should direct offers of assistance including healthcare professionals, where personal protective equipment (PPE) and other products to help with response can be sold, how to help the state manufacture vital products, and how to donate goods and services. Use this link: https://coronavirus. health.ny.gov/get-involved-how-you-can-help Stony Brook Hospital: Supporting our heroes on the “front lines” HIA-LI is leading the way to secure personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare workers at Stony Brook Hospital, which is on the front lines of the battle against Coronavirus. We call upon the business community to help: PPE: Stony Brook accepts donations of PPE and supplies including masks, gloves, gowns, ventilators, and other items. Contact Joan Dickinson, Stony Brook University Community Relations Director, at joan.dickinson@stonybrook.edu or call 631-2190603. Donations can be made by appointment only and at specific drop-off locations to ensure the safety of all involved and to get the supplies into the right hands immediately. •

Comfort care items: The hospital seeks donations of “comfort care” items (socks, snacks, tissue packs, hand lotion, gum, lip balm, etc.) for these healthcare heroes. Contact Joan Dickinson to set up a donation appointment.

Messages of support to medical staff: Many people have asked about ways to show support to the medical staff who are working around the clock. The best way to share your sentiments is through a simple cell phone video. Email a video no longer than 20 seconds to joan.dickinson@stonybrook.edu. Videos will be shared in hospital areas and be visible as employees move throughout their day.

Messages for Veterans: Some residents of the Long Island State Veterans Home miss their families but can’t have visitors because they’re in a high-risk group. You can send a veteran a message by emailing a video no longer than 20 seconds to Jonathan Spier, LISVH Deputy Executive Director, at jonathan.spier@lisvh. org. Your message will be shared on the digital boards in the facility.

Long Island tackles the shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) Working in cooperation with the Governor’s office and Congressman Lee Zeldin, HIA-LI is leading Long Island’s efforts to address the statewide shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare workers battling the pandemic. The idea is to have manufacturers pause their current manufacturing – if it isn’t paused already – and go back to work to manufacture PPE. This shift would not only help ameliorate the PPE crisis, but also help these manufacturers keep their businesses afloat and their people employed. New York State can provide funding for companies manufacturing needed equipment. PPE includes gloves, masks, gowns, respirators, and other equipment critical to protect those on the front lines. Businesses interested in receiving state funding to manufacture PPE products should contact Eric Gertler at 212-803-3100 or covid19supplies@ exec.ny.gov. The Governor’s office also asks that all PPE product providers sell to the state directly through this pandemic, including any products that are nonessential or not currently used. Businesses interested in selling products to the state should contact Simonida Subotic at 646-522-8477 or covid19supplies@exec.ny.gov. Coronavirus Webinars HIA-LI will be sending notices about Northwell Health’s webinar updates that cover the everchanging coronavirus landscape. Northwell also provides a wealth of COVID-19 information at https:// www.northwell.edu/coronavirus-covid-19. Tough times never last -- but tough people do. It’s time for Long Island to show our determination and unlock our courage. Together, we’ll get through this. Sincerely,

Terri Alessi-Miceli President & CEO HIA-LI

CHAIRMAN SPOTLIGHT Moving Forward in the Face of Fear By Joe Campolo, Esq.

Chairman, HIA-LI Board of Directors Managing Partner Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP

April 2020 - The HIA-LI Reporter Page 8

Fellow Long Islanders: We find ourselves at a crossroads that is going to take each and every one of us to conquer. No household and no business stands alone. It is in times like these when we must dig deep, stay positive, and most importantly continue to fight on. Courage is not the absence of fear, but instead is the ability to move forward in the face of fear. We must continue to fight, not only to help protect the health of our most vulnerable, but also our businesses, which have helped create the amazing quality of life that Long Island has to offer. The richness of Long Island lies not only in its real estate and school districts, but also in its diverse restaurants, shopping, and hospitality. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and must survive. Like you, I have spent my entire career helping to build Long Island, and also like you I am not willing to sit back and watch these businesses

be destroyed without a fight. While we must be safe, we cannot become paralyzed. Working remotely cannot be viewed as a sabbatical. Home schooling during this time needs to be more than cartoons and Xbox. Managers need to be directing their teams each and every day to ensure that they are performing. We cannot allow the fear of us potentially not getting paid prevent us from being productive. We have simply come too far for that. We need to trust one another a bit more and, even though difficult at times, we must also trust the government. We need to all mute out the hysteria being caused by irresponsible media pundits and help ensure that our colleagues and our families are all reacting to accurate information. In short, we all need to be leaders. This is our moment to shine: the moment when we can all directly work together to protect the health of our most vulnerable as well as our business community. I know we all have what it takes to get through this in a safe and prosperous way. Let’s all be smart, fair, and kind – in short, let’s all be Long Islanders.

WHY ARE YOU PROUD TO BE IN THE LONG ISLAND INNOVATION PARK AT HAUPPAUGE (IPH) AND SHOWCASING YOUR COMPANY? Liberty Moving is proud to have embraced innovation in an industry that many perceive as stagnant and boring. Since 2009 when we opened our state-of-the-art facility on Moreland Road, we have grown our business by over 300%. More importantly, we have grown our valued team members from 95 in 2009 to over 300 currently. We’re extremely proud of creating those job opportunities and providing exciting career paths for workers. We’re looking forward to continue growing within IPH in the future.

keepingcurrent Traditional Medical plans versus High Deductible Plans By Jeff Weiner HKM Associates 333 Earle Ovington Blvd Suite 402 Uniondale, New York 11553 516.394.2522 phone 516.316.1255 cell

A traditional medical plan is designed to include a copay for doctors, prescriptions, labs and hospitalizations for both inpatient and out-patient visits. These plans are typically the platinum, gold or silver level plans. The copays for these plans are generally $30 for primary care physicians and $60 for specialists. Prescriptions are normally $15 copay for generic, $35 for brand names and $75 for non-formulary. Hospitals will generally have a $1000 copay per stay. The premiums on these plans are customarily between $2100 -$2500 per month for a family. All plans have what is known as a max out of pocket (MOOP). That is the maximum amount which you will need to pay for claims during a given plan year. The range is from $8000 to $16,000 depending upon the metallic level of plan selected.

Liberty Gold plan with a premium of $2500 per month for a family. With a change to the Oxford Liberty Bronze plan, the premium dropped to $1600 per month per family. This small change will save the company approximately $10,000 per family per year. We recommended to the client that after the employee paid the first $500 in claims, the company should then the next $7000 in claims. The Company’s worst case scenario would still save the Company $3000 per year per family over a traditional plan. We recommended that the client set up an HRA A high deductible plan ($5000 single/ (Health Reimbursement Arrangement) for $10,000 family) has no copays.

keepingcurrent The Need For Emergency Food Increases As Our Region Confronts Covid-19 As Layoffs And Furloughs Increase or they’re housed in a church or other host location that also closed.

By Paule T. Pachter, A.C.S.W., L.M.S.W. Chief Executive Officer Long Island Cares, Inc. The Harry Chapin Regional Food Bank 10 Davids Drive – Harry Chapin Way Hauppauge, New York 11788 Office: 631.582.3663 x 101 www.licares.org

On any given day and not in the middle of a global pandemic, the need for emergency food is significant with 259,000 Long Islanders including, 79,000 children struggling with food insecurity. The realty of COVID-19 has changed the way the world, the United States, and Long Island are functioning now and conceivably for the next six to nine months. The words “social distancing” have entered our collective vocabularies along with increased fears and anxieties causing some Long Islanders to panic to a point of hoarding food and cleaning supplies. Since March 1st self-isolation has become the norm, and as we try to adjust among the daily government briefings, empty supermarket shelves, and the grim reality that too many of our loved ones and neighbors are dying, pressure is mounting on healthcare workers, first responders and essential services like food banks and food pantries to respond.

The COVID-19 pandemic has required Long Island Cares to refocus our priorities on the needs of specific populations for whom social distancing presents new challenges such as the elderly, homeless and homebound. At the same time, there are communities where economic challenges, cultural diversity, and the closing of local businesses and schools are having an impact on a family’s ability to access nutritious food for their children and themselves. Adding to the increased demand is that nearly 20% of our member agency food pantries and soup kitchens have closed their doors because they didn’t have enough staff or volunteers to help serve their communities,

Ten years ago, Long Island Cares opened its first satellite location in Freeport to distribute emergency food and other supports to people in need. The satellite model brings the support of the regional food bank directly to communities where there is documented high-need of food insecurity. Today, Long Island Cares operates satellites in Huntington, Freeport, two in Lindenhurst and our newest location in Hampton Bays. As the demands have increased as a result of COVID-19 and unemployment, we have opened temporary satellites in Glen Cove and Valley Stream, in addition to distributing from our warehouse and distribution center in Hauppauge. Hopefully, we will be able to flatten the curve on COVID-19 sooner than later but, the increase in unemployment will most likely continue for a longer period of time resulting in many more people turning to Long Island Cares and our member agencies for food assistance. And, as a result of the unprecedented support we have received from the federal stimulus funding, corporate donations, and donations from Long Islanders, we will be ready to help.

Membership Committee Co-Chairs Lisa Mitnick of People’s Alliance Federal Credit Union and Alex MacPherson from UBS Financial Services Inc. hit the ground running in 2020 and have a great dynamic that has allowed them to enjoy working on the meeting plans – from the discussion topics to general meeting logistics, and everything in-between! “We have a great team and are enjoying everyone’s company, meeting and connecting new members with current members,” said Mitnick. The main focus of the Membership Committee is to enhance and promote the value of the HIA-LI’s Membership, thereby increasing our membership and growing our networks. At every meeting, new members get a Welcome Packet filled with all the information a new HIA-LI Member needs to make the most of their membership. We also

take a moment to introduce the new members, giving them a moment of spotlight - members know the value of networking with others and enjoy learning about new members.

keepingcurrent Navigating COVID-19 for Manufacturers and Distributors: A Story on Ebb and Flow By John P. Giordano, CPA Partner, Citrin Cooperman DIRECT: 347.505.6351 MAIN: 631.930.5000 x6351 225 Broadhollow Road Suite 401, Melville, Ny 11747 jgiordano@citrincooperman.com citrincooperman.com With the announcement of an early spring, most people were looking forward to taking walks outside and getting some fresh air. In a few of Citrin Cooperman’s coastal communities, particularly on Long Island, we looked forward to watching the waves come in and go out, the tide continuing to rise and fall with the passage of time. This, in many ways, can be the same for business as well, even if we don’t always notice it. Through each of our lives we have seen peaks and valleys, highs and lows, bears and bulls. To this, I would often say, “A rising tide, hides a lot of the rocks.” When times are good, you don’t necessarily see the dangers lurking underneath, but it is important to remember, just because the tide runs out, doesn’t mean you are guaranteed to crash into an iceberg. It just means there is a lot more to navigate, and that is why I wanted to share a few thoughts to consider as we use our compass to guide us through. CASH FLOW Work with your lenders, customers, vendors, and other

essential service providers to free up cash flow. Many banks are working with customers to defer payments, assisting in the preservation of short-term cash flow. Those with asset-based lending arrangements, can try to free up liquidity through (a) increased availability percentages (i.e. going from 80% of receivables to 85%); (b) including other operating assets such as inventory; or (c) other means such as real property as part of the collateral. SALES STRATEGY Think out of the box – how can your company adapt to navigate the storm? Can you deliver your products directly to customers? Arrange for delivery or pickup from your warehouse? Offer services remotely? Or more importantly, can you make your products more adaptable to other businesses in need, such as hospitals and other services during this time of crisis. INVENTORY Breakeven pricing, with a sense of community: reducing overhead costs associated with the carrying of inventory should always be a consideration for your business. Now, more than ever, it is important to make sure products are moving and are being turned into cas. Increasing your inventory turnover can help cover necessary fixed costs such as rent and payroll, even at the sacrifice of normal margins. Pricing reductions also have the potential to benefit those in need of these products; giving back to the community.

EMPLOYEES No one likes to lay off employees, but unfortunately, many businesses are finding the need to make tough decisions. Once the pandemic hit, companies began to lean down immediately, with a lot of the discussion on essential versus nonessential personnel. One potential solution to those uncomfortable with laying off their workforce is to consider a “shift rotation,” with all employees taking a rollback in pay but dedicating less time to work. As COVID-19 forces a significant amount of the workforce to stay home, many are struggling to develop a work/home balance, especially with a full household. Having two or more teams rotating shifts, and focusing solely on the essentials, will allow them to care for the needs at home as well. Shift rotations can increase efficiencies, leaving a lot of the fat and redundancies by the wayside and lessening the need to permanently reduce your workforce. When the tide rises again, you don’t want to be left without a crew. One thing we can all agree on, is that we have never seen the tide run out like this. For many, the ideas shared in this article may be a reaffirmation of plans you have already been working on putting into place. For others, the hope is that it helps get those conversations started. If you’d like to discuss how to navigate your business through these uncertain times, please reach out to your Citrin Cooperman advisor. Togetherness may be the most important thing to get us through this. Here’s to hoping the next wave is far greater.

LI-IPH POWER TASK FORCE Working From Home? Not Without Reliable Power what it was like to suck gas out of a fuel tank to fill my generator. We had heat, Some lights and internet. But remember the percentage of folks without power after Sandy was tiny compared to the hundreds of thousands of Long Islanders now relying on power so they can work from home, students doing their online courses etc. etc. etc. For god sakes can you imagine this week without your modem? No Internet, no net Flix, no TV. Every person sitting at home in their slippers, “WORKING FROM HOME” cut off from their jobs and they can’t even charge their phones. If you are a business that has employees working from home than you must consider not just the technology to be able to have employees work from home but the reliable power, they will need to do so.

April 2020 - The HIA-LI Reporter Page 20

Your firm is vulnerable if your employees’ homes are vulnerable. All the tech prep is meaningless without reliable power at your teams’ homes. Today is Monday, March 23rd and I’m sure like many of you I am beyond bewildered. The business that I’ve grown for the last 19 years is shut down but for a few key people. So as to protect my team’s eligibility for benefits, most of my team needed to turn in their cell phones, lap tops and company vehicles. It’s eerie and to those that know me, my 165-person team is family and as the head of the family it was my job to protect them. It will take quite a while to recover financially from this nightmare but even longer emotionally. I’m not quite sure how we could have been better prepared, but I still feel helpless. Perhaps you feel exactly the same as me. I’m focusing on the positives that can come out of this. This week, leaders emerged in my company. Seriously, some folks really embraced the gravity of the situation, scrubbed in and did everything they could even knowing a lay off was possible.

I quickly found out who had capabilities and who was prioritizing their own needs. As these next days and weeks unfold more of this will emerge and when things begin to get back to normal, I feel this is a great opportunity to hit the reset button for my business. I continue to get emails and texts from colleagues and competitors, teammates and clients. All of these I view as positives. My solar + Tesla battery customers have especially reached out to share the comfort they are feeling. I keep however drifting to even darker places. As a Sandy victim without power for 13 days, I know

This concept extends to the leaders of the business especially. If you do not have solar on your home with Tesla back up power, you could be shut down. How will you lead your team? Are you protected? For how long? So on to the positives. We are all in this together and we will survive. Tough times bring out the best and the worst in people. See this as an opportunity to purge the selfish ones and reward the folks that step up. Assess your vulnerabilities.

keepingcurrent About COVID-19

By Katherine Cortavarria Manantial Cleaning Services 1050 W Jericho Turnpike - Suite B Smithtown, NY 11787 (631) 787-4678 katherine@ manantialcleaningservices.com www.manantialcleaningservices.com/

What is the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)? “Coronaviruses� is a general term used to identify a large family of viruses that often cause illnesses in animals and humans. The 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new virus that international health departments and research labs are still studying to learn how it spreads, to what extent it may spread and the severity of illness it may cause. COVID-19 was unknown before its outbreak that originated in Wuhan, China in December 2019. In humans, COVID-19 causes respiratory infections that can generate symptoms like fever, dry coughing, aches and pains, and shortness of breath. Most individuals (about 80%) develop mild symptoms that begin gradually and can recover without much special treatment if any at all (World Health Organization, 2020.) Older people and individuals who suffer from underlying medical issues such as high blood pressure, heart problems, and chronic illnesses are at the most risk and are likely to develop serious illness and potential death from COVID-19. How does COVID-19 spread? COVID-19, according to the most up-to-date studies, is mostly spread between people who are in close contact (within 6 feet.) It can even spread through respiratory droplets produced by a cough or sneeze from an infected person. These dangerous droplets can land in the mouths,

eyes or noses of people nearby. These droplets can also land on nearby objects and surfaces. When people come in contact with these infected surfaces or objects and eventually touch their face, mouth or nose, they can also contract the virus. Due to this information, the US Centers for Disease Control recommend that people practice good hygiene and maintain at least a distance of 3 feet (1 meter) from a person who seems sick. Although many rumors are suggesting that COVID-19 is airborne, studies suggest that the virus is mainly transmitted through contact or respiratory droplets rather than through the air. It is important to note that the risk of contracting COVID-19 from an individual who is not experiencing symptoms is very low, especially in the early stages of the disease, but having caution when having contact with anyone is very important. How to properly disinfect and kill COVID-19? Health experts state that COVID-19 can be spread by touching an infected surface or object. Experts are not yet certain as to how long the virus can survive on common surfaces but, from studied behavior of similar coronaviruses, studies show that COVID-19 can persist on surfaces anywhere from a few hours to a few days. The amount of time the virus lasts on common surfaces depends on several factors such as the type of surface, room temperature, and humidity, but is recommended to constantly disinfect surfaces or objects that experience a high-touch volume. The US Centers for Disease Control recommends the practice of good hygiene by constantly washing your hands, create habits to prevent touching your face and establish routines to disinfect surfaces regularly. Surfaces that should constantly be disinfected and sanitized are high-point areas such as light switches, doorknobs, keyboards, elevator buttons, desks, and handrails. It is

also very important to sanitize bathroom surfaces such as bathroom doorknobs, toilet seats, dispensers, and faucets. Disinfectant spray or wipes are very effective in killing COVID-19 on these surfaces but must be used at least every hour. Professional cleaning services do perform thorough cleaning in places of business, educational facilities, and office buildings. Professional cleaners tend to use stronger chemicals and disinfectant sprays that can kill not only COVID-19 but a variety of bacteria and viruses. It is recommended to develop routines that motivate every one of your patrons and employees to practice good hygiene and maintain cleanliness throughout your place of business. However, professional cleaners use protective equipment such as gloves, face masks, and goggles to safely and thoroughly disinfect common areas where people are always present. In addition to this, unlike most places of business, professional cleaning staff are highly trained to be aware of hazards associated with exposure to viruses and bacteria and often establish necessary protocols to prevent and reduce the likelihood of exposure. These protocols include, how to properly put on, use and take off protective equipment and how to properly dispose of, inspect for damage and disinfect equipment. The cleaning staff at Manantial Cleaning Services are trained, experienced and prepared to clean and sanitize any place of business during this highly stressed time. We offer cleaning services such as daytime porters, sanitizing, IT cleaning, and more. Give us a call at (631)787-4678 and our management team will develop the best cleaning solution for your place of business.

overtaken by events and overshadowed by reports that often can’t be substantiated. Portfolio managers are deluged with calls from clients asking questions no one can answer. Financial markets are in unsettling new territory. For decades, discussion of the market had often centered around whether stocks were in a bubble—in other words, if their gains had outstripped economic reality. There was the dot-com bubble. The housing bubble. And more recently, debate over whether a record-long run in stocks had made the market ripe for a fall. But the coronavirus represents something new: a non-financial, exogenous force whose impact on the global economy is huge and unknowable. The smartest minds on Wall Street and beyond are having difficulty discerning whether the epidemic will end up being a short-term disruption, or a more sustained and lasting threat that upends the lives of millions of people around the world.

Will the offices and factories and schools of America and Europe close up like the ones in China did? Will the streets empty out and shops shutter their doors as people retreat to their homes? How long will it take for scientists to understand the workings of the virus and develop medicines that can slow it down? Until the answers to some of those questions become clearer, traders say, the market could have trouble finding a bottom. “Everybody’s just trying to figure out where are the next rumors coming from and where the viruses are hitting and how bad they are,” said Thomas di Galoma, managing director of rates trading at Seaport Global Securities in New York. Over the course of six days of selling, the S&P 500 dropped 12% from its peak —wiping out $3.4 trillion in market value. The yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury note—a bedrock of global finance—has tumbled to a record low, indicating soaring prices as traders from other markets seek out the safety of debt issued by the richest nation in the world. In the Treasurys market, those who have been trying to fight off the precipitous slide in bond yields “have gotten stomped out,” said Mr. di Galoma. The rout marks the staunchest test yet for a U.S. stock bull market that started 11 years ago next month. Investors have learned over the past decade that it pays to stay invested in stocks, a mindset that has paid off handsomely for those who have used recession scares in 2011, 20152016 and 2018 to add to shareholdings at lower prices. At the same time, this rally has been by acclamation the most hated ever, one in which traditional stock mutual funds suffered significant outflows and some of the most visible buyers of shares were corporations pursuing buybacks to reduce their share counts and put extra cash to work. Households who saw their portfolios eviscerated by the financial crisis have been reluctant to return to the market. Even seasoned money managers have at times expressed disdain for the rally. They’ve argued that the stock market was juiced by the extraordinary monetary policy central banks put in place after the financial crisis. To them, stocks looked ripe for a selloff long before the coronavirus epidemic surfaced. They just weren’t sure what the trigger would be. The question for now in markets is whether the steep decline of the past week will be just another blip on the way to further highs in this cycle, whether the crash that a

handful of bears have been calling for for years is actually at hand, or whether this is something even worse that no one foresaw at all. Tony Roth, chief investment officer at Wilmington Trust Investment Advisors, said the firm’s investment committee had several emergency meetings before deciding to lower its position in stocks to less than the benchmark it tracks early in the week. Before that change, Wilmington Trust held a larger investment in stocks than its benchmark, and the move from an “overweight” position to “underweight” marked the first such change in the 5½ years Mr. Roth has been at the firm. “This is something that’s unprecedented in modern times, and the markets are now reacting in a way that’s more realistic,” Mr. Roth said. “We view this as a pretty significant shock to the system.” The market’s rout began in earnest Monday, after news over the weekend of the virus spreading rapidly in Italy showed investors that the pandemic had evolved from a Chinese crisis into a global and increasingly out-of-control problem. That realization sent the Dow tumbling more than 1,000 points and the yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury note fell briefly below an intraday record. But for many, the market’s turning point came Tuesday, when officials from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a stark warning. Experts now expected the coronavirus to spread widely throughout the country. Schools and businesses should brace themselves against a potential outbreak, officials said. The CDC’s warning drove home a point that many had largely dismissed just weeks prior—that the U.S. might not escape the disruption caused by the coronavirus that has already brought to a halt everyday life in China, Italy, South Korea, and other countries. Wall Street was quick to respond. By Thursday, analysts at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. warned they no longer expected U.S. companies to post any earnings growth at all in 2020. With the epidemic threatening to evolve into a pandemic, it’s likely that U.S. exporters will see a drop in demand for their products and that companies will suffer disruptions in their supply chains, said David Kostin, Goldman’s chief U.S. equity strategist.
