Deep Dive: Here are the worst-performing stocks Monday as investors panic over the coronavirus

A heightened fear of the coronavirus spread over the weekend amid reports of scores of new infections in Italy, pummeling U.S. stock indexes in early trading Monday.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average

DJX, +0.00%

 fell as much as 997 points (or 3.4%) during morning trading. The S&P 500

SPX, -2.84%

 was down as much as 3.2% and the Nasdaq Composite

COMP, -3.43%

 plunged as much as 4.4%.

Travel-related and technology stocks were hit particularly hard.

The world’s integrated supply chains have investors worried about potential disruptions among companies based far away from the areas that have been hardest-hit by the virus.

Many vulnerable people have lived in what Chris Dillon, T. Rowe Price’s investment specialist for global capital markets, calls “closed-habitat systems.” These aren’t limited to cruise lines, but include factories with dormitory housing for workers, such as Foxconn Technology

FXCOF, +0.00%,

AAPL, -4.32%

 iPhones in China. In an interview Feb. 21, Dillon said: “Foxconn has told its people not to go back” to some of the dormitories, which could hinder a return to normal assembly schedules.

Dillon said that while he and colleagues were “not understating the human tragedy,” it was important for investors to have perspective about the scale of the coronavirus. “Last year, 42 million people contracted the flu and 61,000 died” in the U.S. alone, he said.

Remember Warren Buffett’s sage advice: Don’t buy or sell on the headlines.
