Steel represents a significant amount of materials trading done on the stock market, but as is the case with other sectors, individual companies perform better than others—for a number of reasons. Despite the widespread use and global demand, the benchmark index that tracks the steel sector, the NYSE Arca Steel Index, declined by more than 21 percent in 2018. Starting the year at a value of 1,285, the steel index ended the year at a value of 1,013.
The economic expansion that began post-financial crisis is nearing the 10-year mark, matching the longest in history. It is troubling times at the Federal Reserve, with President Trump's public bashing of Fed chairman Jerome Powell preceding a reversal in Fed policy on interest rates hikes.

The shake-up was announced late on Friday, and came after the company's new independent chairwoman, Robyn Denholm, sounded out the company's biggest investors about what changes they wanted to see. As part of the overhaul, the company's lead independent director, Antonio Gracias, who was previously responsible for board oversight of Mr Musk, has handed over his responsibilities to Ms Denholm with immediate effect, and is expected to leave the board next year. Tesla's board has been a perennial target of Wall Street activists, dating back to the company's acquisition of SolarCity, a company where Mr Musk was the chairman and his cousin, Lyndon Rive, chief executive officer.
The British pound fell during the week against the Japanese yen, reaching down towards the ¥145 level that extends support to the market. That support runs all the way down to the ¥144 level, so at this point it's difficult to imagine a scenario where I would be a seller, at least not until we break below the ¥144 level. In fact, when you look at the chart, you can see that there is a massive bullish flag underneath that I have marked.

Most people think they're above average in intelligence, relationship status and professional achievement.

For Lyft Inc., whose stock has tumbled sharply since its March 28 launch, it took less than three weeks for disillusioned shareholders to sue the company over claims they were taken for a ride. Such lawsuits are a rite of passage for newly public companies, and have become even more common after the 2008 financial crisis, according to Cornerstone Research. Lyft was accused in two nearly identical complaints filed April 16 of exaggerating in its prospectus when it said its U.S. market share was 39 percent.
That's because, of all the winners that 5G stocks will create, Intel believes it's already lost out in the mobile 5G space, which our own Matt McCall predicts to be a mega-opportunity that comes along once in a lifetime: “Only one company can be first. But in the coming years there will be a slew of big winners as 5G becomes mainstream,” Matt wrote recently on InvestorPlace.com.

A new, long-delayed 88-passenger jet from Japan may finally be the right plane at the right time. The Mitsubishi Regional Jet, the first airliner built in Japan since the 1960s, began certification flights last month in Moses Lake, Washington, to satisfy that demand. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd.'s new airliner is testing the skies just as rivals are moving to sell off their manufacturing operations for jets with up to 160 seats.
U.S. homebuilding dropped to a near two-year low in March, pulled down by persistent weakness in the single-family unit segment, suggesting the housing market continued to struggle despite falling mortgage rates. The second straight monthly decline in homebuilding reported by the Commerce Department on Friday probably reflected in part massive flooding in the Midwest, with housing starts in the region plunging to levels last seen in early 2015. The weak report bucked a recent tide of upbeat data, including retail sales, trade and construction spending, that indicated the economy regained speed late in the first quarter after appearing to stumble at the turn of the year.

(NYSE: BXG) and Orlando-based Wyndham (NYSE: WYND) have accused American Resource Management Group (ARMG) and its affiliate of defrauding timeshare customers and causing damage to their companies through deceptive marketing tactics.
