12. the recovery will be interesting because this is a disaster for many companies but huge for others

businesses that depend on foot traffic and close proximity to customers are obviously hit hard -- dine-in restaurants, barbers, nail salons, etc. mostly local businesses. but they have suppliers who will suffer as well.

on the other hand, companies like domino's and amazon are doing great as they were always delivery services, which is doing just fine right now.

i expect the "winners" will do really well, and there will be a ton of consolidation among the "losers". to some extent this happens in all recessions/recoveries, but the contrast will be very stark this time. in most recessions, nearly all companies are affected. this disaster is more like a tornado, where some houses remain intact while other are obliterated.
