    Here’s how the stock market has performed during past viral outbreaks, as epidemic locks down 3 Chinese cities

    According to Dow Jones Market Data, the S&P 500 posted a gain of 14.59% after the first occurrence of SARS back in 2002-03, based on the end of month performance for the index in April, 2003. About 12 months after that point, the broad-market benchmark was up 20.76% (see attached table): SARS resulted in a total of about 8,100 people being sickened during the 2003 outbreak, with 774 people dying, according to data from WHO and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Separately, the S&P 500 rose 11.66% in the roughly six months following reports of the 2006 Avian flu virus — a fast-moving pathogen also known as H5N1.

    ‘Kids that don’t fail are normally frugal.' Wealth advisers say Meghan and Harry’s lifestyle already raises red flags

    Meghan and Harry Windsor aren't the first people to try to quit the safety of a rich family and try to go it alone, and they won't be the last. Chief among them: Reports that the couple is looking to buy a mansion in Vancouver on the market for $36 million Canadian dollars ($27 million in U.S. dollars), already dubbed a “Megha-Mansion” by the British press. “That is a red flag,” writes Elizabeth Windisch, a financial planner at Aspen Wealth Management in Centennial, Colo., in an email, “they really couldn't find a nice, secure home for, say, $15 million.” Others agree.

    FAA official tells U.S. airlines MAX could return to service before mid-year - sources

    Federal Aviation Administrator Steve Dickson has called senior U.S. airline officials Friday and told them that the agency could approve the grounded Boeing 737 MAX's return to service before mid-year, people briefed on the calls said Friday. Dickson's calls come days after Boeing said it was pushing back its timeline for approval of the plane's return and "currently estimating that the ungrounding of the 737 MAX will begin during mid-2020." A person briefed on one of Dickson's calls with the airlines said he told officials the Boeing mid-year timeline is "very conservative."

    Boeing 737 Max Could Get FAA OK Soon But Q4 Earnings Promise Sticker Shock

    The timeline for resuming production on the Boeing 737 Max and returning it to service will be big topics when the company reports earnings Wednesday. Analysts see Boeing's earnings falling 68.4% to $1.73 per share with revenue down 23.5% to $21.67 billion. "As we noted in our 4Q19 earnings preview, we are expecting Boeing's upcoming results to be 'an absolute disaster,' and that now looks guaranteed," wrote Vertical Research analysts Robert Stallard and Karl Oehlschlaeger in a note.

Investors will zero in on Tesla's 2020 sales outlook, said Garrett Nelson, an analyst with CFRA. Generally, we think the recent stock price run-up has greatly raised the bar in terms of expectations and elevated the risk of disappointment,” he said.

    Apparently so, according to consumer advocate and former presidential candidate Ralph Nader, who issued a stark warning this week, not only on the electric-car maker's pricey stock, but on the stock market as a whole. “Deep in debt, selling less than 400,000 vehicles last year and challenged by several competing electric car models in 2020, Tesla's stock valuation stunningly exceeds VW which sold over 10 million vehicles last year,” Nader added in a follow-up tweet. Of course, his stance didn't sit well with Tesla fans.

Smartphones won't be the next big thing forever, so if you are looking for long-term 5G growth potential, smartphone stocks may not necessarily be your best bet (though their potential in the short term is undeniable). Instead, the companies that will be involved in the 5G rollout and also stand to benefit from IoT technology might be better investments.

    Don’t worry about an overbought stock market because the Fed is here to help

    Some stocks look bubbleicious, but I do not believe the stock market is in bubble territory. I know the sizes of Alphabet (GOOG)(GOOGL) Apple (AAPL) and Microsoft (MSFT) can give many investors the feeling of vertigo, but so can their revenues and earnings, which were largely missing from the 1999 move in stocks. That does not mean the stock market is not overbought — it is based on reliable metrics — but overbought does not mean a bubble, and it certainly doesn't mean it's time to sell.

    Inovio’s stock soars after receiving grant to develop coronavirus vaccine

    As the coronavirus out of China spreads and gets deadlier, shares of health care companies that announce plans to take part in finding a vaccine, or identifying patients with the new strain, have rallied sharply in very active trading. On Thursday, among the bigger coronavirus gainers was Inovio Pharmaceuticals Inc.'s stock (INO) , which ran up 12% to the highest close since May 9. The Pennsylvania-based biotechnology company said early Thursday that it was awarded a grant of up to $9 million by the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) to develop a vaccine for the new strain of coronavirus, 2019-nCoV, which originated in Wuhan, China, and has killed no less than 17 people.
