The Most Shocking Winners in Friday's Stock Market Rout

The stock market finished October on a terrible note, with big losses that reflected investor discomfort with all the unresolved issues in the markets right now. With declines of between 0.5% and 3% on Friday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES: ^DJI), S&P 500 (SNPINDEX: ^GSPC), and Nasdaq Composite (NASDAQINDEX: ^IXIC) all finished down for the month, with the Dow leading the markets to the downside with a nearly 5% fall in October. It'd therefore be reasonable to think that cruise ship stocks would continue to be on the defensive in a down market worried about the coronavirus.
