Paul Tudor Jones, a hedge-fund luminary, said he’s stress-testing his portfolio of corporate debt because he expects a tumultuous road ahead on the back of the Federal Reserve’s apparent commitment to normalizing interest rates and buttressed by corporate tax cuts from the Trump administration. Speaking at an economic forum in Greenwich, Conn., a hotbed for hedge funds, Jones said the Fed faces real challenges amid “the end of a 10-year run” of economic growth that many anticipate will soon come to a screeching, cyclical end.

    Apple cuts production orders for all three new iPhone models: WSJ

    A lower-than-expected demand for the new iPhones and Apple's decision to offer more models has made it more difficult to anticipate the number of components and handsets the company needs, according to the paper https://on.wsj.com/2KeQ3LN. Apple shocked investors a few weeks ago with a lower-than-expected sales forecast for the Christmas quarter, prompting certain suppliers to issue warnings that pointed to weakness in new iPhone sales. Forecasts have been particularly problematic for iPhone XR with Apple cutting its production plan by up to a third of the nearly 70 million units some suppliers had been asked to produce between September and February, the paper said.

    Trump Insults Key House Democrat Adam Schiff With Potty Humor Tweet

    President Donald Trump insulted Democratic Representative Adam Schiff of California with a tweet that misspelled the Intelligence Committee member’s name in a way that suggests a scatological reference. “So funny to see little Adam Schitt (D-CA) talking about the fact that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker was not approved by the Senate, but not mentioning the fact that Bob Mueller (who is highly conflicted) was not approved by the Senate!” Trump tweeted on Sunday. Schiff, a frequent critic of Trump, said on ABC’s “This Week” earlier in the day that the appointment of Whitaker was “unconstitutional” because he wasn’t confirmed by the Senate — a claim that other Democratic lawmakers have made and the White House rejects.
