    Here's Why StoneCo Stock Is Plunging Today

    Shares of Brazilian fintech company StoneCo (NASDAQ: STNE), which gained notoriety in recent months after being added to Berkshire Hathaway's portfolio, are plummeting today. Generally speaking, moves like this are often seen after earnings announcements, but StoneCo isn't set to report earnings again for another couple months. In this case, the plunge appears to be triggered by a move from a rival company.

    Exclusive: Cardone lays off dozens, Brookfield takes over ownership of the family company

    Cardone Industries, a remanufacturer of vehicle auto parts that has a 45-year history in Philadelphia, is now in the control of Brookfield Asset Management Inc., a Toronto firm that was part of a $240 million loan extended to the company last fall.  This means the Cardone family, which started the company and has seen its third-generation shepherd its growth as well as weather ups and downs through various economic cycles, has relinquished control over the company but maintains a minority interest in it.  As part of the transition, 60 Cardone administrative employees have been let go from the company, said George Zauflik, senior vice president at the company. More layoffs are not expected this year though the company went through a round last year, he said. In addition, a planned move for its corporate offices to Bala Cynwyd has been put on hold.

    Boeing 'shielded' from 737 Max order cancellations

    Don't expect Boeing Co. to face a slew of order cancellations following the 737 Max debacle. Airlines, Boeing's (BA) main customers, are hungry for fuel-efficient single-aisle aircraft such as the Max, and there's a long backlog for the jet's closest competitor, Airbus SE' (FR:AIR) A320neo, analysts at Oxford Economics said in a note Thursday. “That will shield Boeing from a mass cancellation of orders,” the analysts said.

    Here's Why Blackstone Shares Jumped on Thursday

    Shares of Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX) climbed nearly 7% on Thursday morning after the alternative asset manager reported first-quarter earnings that blew past expectations and announced plans to convert to a corporation from a partnership. Blackstone, before markets opened, said it had earned $0.71 per share in the first quarter, easily surpassing the consensus estimate for $0.53 per share in earnings. The partnership structure has prevented some classes of investors, namely pension funds and other tax-exempt institutions, from buying shares of Blackstone, and has made the company ineligible for inclusion on certain indexes.
