Well when things hit bottom, there is only one way to go. “UP”

Nope. There's always sideways with a slow, gradual increase which would be way worse than a V-shaped recovery.
The details and nuance of our CEO's analysis is apparently lost on some

A sliver of optimism amongst all the doom and gloom... I hope he's right

Measuring from the horizontal plane. 80 degrees down angle and then 30 degree up angle, kind of a lazy “V” pattern qualifier. Highly doubtful to be a pure “V” for sure. This involves too many areas of our economy (global impact as well) and unfortunately emotions to recover as fast as it fell. Definitely recover though; hopefully businesses we saw/used/owned/worked for prior to this remain intact and as prosperous as before.
