The coronavirus continues to cause investor anxiety and market uncertainty, but Wall Street analysts told clients this week there’s still plenty of quality stocks to own.

CNBC combed through recent Wall Street research to find where analysts see buying opportunities amid the epidemic. The stocks include Apple, Qorvo, Kontoor Brands, Synopsys, ON Semiconductor, and Nike.

Kontoor, the maker of Lee and Wrangler jeans, is likely to see some effect from the virus but the company’s growing global platform should keep it fairly insulated from any long-term damage according to one analyst.

“Despite the likelihood, near term, of transitory headwinds related to the coronavirus, we think KTB remains well positioned to achieve its ’20 and ’21 financial targets,” Susquehanna analyst Sam Poser said.

The firm also said the company’s strong management is another reason clients should own the stock.

“Patience is a virtue, and a stable strong dividend pays investors to wait,” he said.

The stock was down over 7% on the week.


Shares of Nike are down more than 4% over the last month, but Morgan Stanley says it’s still a great time to buy.
