U.S. stocks were in the red on Monday on the back of China's announcement that it will impose tariffs as high as 25% on U.S. goods. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 2.38% to 25,324, the S&P 500 index retreated 2.41% at 2,811, and the Nasdaq Composite Index slid 3.41% to 7,647.

Shares of Navios Maritime Acquisition Corp. (NNA) gained more than 5.6% on Monday after the company reported first-quarter results. Revenue grew 67.1% from the prior-year quarter to $77.1 million, beating expectations by $15.1 million. Earnings of 6 cents per share topped estimates by 91 cents.


"I am pleased to report that for the first quarter of 2019, Navios Acquisition recorded revenue of $77.1 million, Ebitda of $41.7 million and net income of $0.9 million," Chairman and CEO Angeliki Frangou said. "We declared a quarterly distribution of 30 cents per share for the first quarter, and repurchased about 735,000 shares since the program was initiated, together providing a total annualized return of about 22%."

The earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization grew by $32.9 million to $41.7 million, as compared to $8.8 million in the prior-year quarter. Time charter and voyage expenses decreased 18.2% to $4.8 million.
