    Legendary Oil Trader Says the End of Demand Growth in Sight

    Andy Hall, one of the most successful oil traders of his generation, is now predicting the biggest shift yet in the global market: the end of demand growth. While the view may not be original, it underscores the gloomy forecast earlier this week from the Paris-based International Energy Agency saying that global oil consumption will plateau in about a decade. The prospect of “peak demand” would end an expansion that dominated the past century and comes as investors and governments face pressure to move away from fossil-fuel-based economies.

    Bullish buyers have sent the S&P 500 Index soaring to a series of record highs this month, but wealthy investors are bracing for a significant market decline by the end of 2020, and now hold, on average, 25% of their assets in cash, according to a worldwide survey by UBS Global Wealth Management that drew more than 3,400 responses. “The rapidly changing geopolitical environment is the biggest concern for investors around the world,” as Paula Polito, client strategy officer at UBS GWM, observed in a statement.

    Dubai Airshow opens as big Gulf airlines slow down purchases

    The Middle East's biggest aviation event, the Dubai Airshow, opened Sunday without any major deals as flagship Gulf carriers rein back big-ticket purchases. This year's lackluster start could be seen as a reflection of the various challenges facing the industry but may also be due to the hundreds of planes already on order by Mideast airlines that have yet to be delivered. In the only major announcement of the day, Boeing and Biman Bangladesh Airlines signed a deal for two 787-9s aircraft, which list at $292.5 million a piece.

    Melinta Therapeutics, Inc. Just Reported Earnings, And Analysts Cut Their Target Price

    From this we can that analyst sentiment has definitely become more bearish after the latest results, leading to lower revenue forecasts and a pretty serious reduction to earnings per share estimates. The consensus price target fell 39% to US$15.00, with analysts clearly concerned about the company following the weaker revenue and earnings outlook. The consensus price target just an average of individual analyst targets, so - considering that the price target changed, it would be handy to see how wide the range of underlying estimates is.

    German automation talent drove Elon Musk's Tesla move into Europe

    To unclog bottlenecks last year in Tesla Model 3 production in California, Elon Musk flew in six planeloads of new robots and equipment from Germany to speed up battery output. Now the Tesla CEO is trying to tap that German automation ecosystem directly with Tuesday's announcement that the electric carmaker will build a European car and battery factory near Berlin. So far, Musk has failed in his plans to create a factory so highly automated that it allows Tesla to make cars more efficiently than much bigger rivals.
