    Dow 15,000 very likely as coronavirus pandemic hits U.S. economy: strategist

    He thinks the economy could begin to show signs of life in the fourth quarter of this year — but until that starts to show up somewhere in the markets or economic data, he prefers putting on trades that profit from extreme volatility and downside. Yahoo Finance highlights a call such as this because, well, McDonald has been dead right so far. Moreover, April has lived up to its billing in the early going as potentially lethal to stocks because of dreadful economic data nobody on Wall Street has ever seen before.

    Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway has sold off millions of shares of Delta Air Lines and Southwest Airlines over the past few days, regulatory filings showed on Friday. That sent Delta stock, Southwest stock and other airline stocks lower after hours. Delta stock was down 9% in the stock market Friday.

    He nailed the March coronavirus selloff — now he says there’s another 30% to go before the stock market hits bottom

    Hedge-fund manager Dan Niles, in a note cited by Yahoo Finance this week, warned his clients way back in February that he was getting “increasingly worried” investors weren't ready for the impact the spread of the coronavirus could have on the U.S. economy. While the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA)posted its worst first quarter ever, his Satori Fund closed in positive territory.

    Precious Metals Are About To Reset Like In 2008 – Gold Bugs, Buckle Up!

    For years, many Gold Bugs (investors who've been advocating buying Gold and Silver at low prices as a hedge against future global economic risks) were shunned as conspiracy theorists and nuts. How could these people believe Gold and Silver were solid investments when the Global equities markets were rallying 5% a year consistently – what could go wrong? Over the past two weeks, I have personally received multiple phone calls and emails from friends and associates asking how these people can suddenly “buy physical metals”.

    Market bottom or ‘very tough times ahead’? Here’s what one chart watcher is keeping his eye on

    Investors say there's no one chart that will signal when the stock-market bottom is in. In a Friday blog post, the founder of Kimble Charting Solutions pointed to the chart above for the Thomson Reuters Equally Weighted Commodities Index, which he said “will go miles and miles towards telling us if we are headed towards very tough times or if the huge declines of late are actually in a bottoming process.” The index tracks a basket of 17 commodities, including cocoa, coffee, copper, corn, soybeans, cotton, crude oil, gold, heating oil, lean hogs, live cattle, natural gas, platinum, silver, soybean oil, sugar and wheat.

    Trump threatens tariffs on oil imports to 'protect' U.S. energy workers

    U.S. President Donald Trump said on Saturday he would impose tariffs on crude imports if he has to "protect" U.S. energy workers from the oil price crash that has been exacerbated by a war between Russia and Saudi Arabia over market share. "If I have to do tariffs on oil coming from outside or if I have to do something to protect our ... tens of thousands of energy workers and our great companies that produce all these jobs, I'll do whatever I have to do," Trump told reporters in a briefing about the coronavirus outbreak. Oil prices have dropped by about two-thirds this year as the pandemic crushes demand and as major producers Russia and Saudi Arabia boost output in a war over market share.

    Saudi Arabia delays May crude prices until after OPEC+ meeting: Saudi source

    Saudi Aramco will delay the release of its crude official selling prices (OSP) for May until April 10 to wait for the outcome of a meeting between OPEC and its allies regarding possible output cuts, a senior Saudi source familiar with the matter said on Sunday. May OSPs will depend on how the OPEC+ meeting concludes. Saudi Aramco typically issues its OSPs by the 5th of each month, setting the trend for Iranian, Kuwaiti and Iraqi prices and affecting more than 12 million barrels of oil per day bound for Asia.

    Goldman Sachs: These 3 Stocks Are Poised to Surge by at Least 35%

    Investment bank Goldman Sachs has been analyzing the market performance, and has a mixed outlook for the year – not necessarily bad news for the long term, but an acknowledgement that we're not completely certain what the economic cycle has in store. David Kostin, Goldman Sachs' chief U.S. equity strategist, predicts that the market has not found its true bottom yet, and has to meet three conditions before it can. Kostin notes that the current peak-to-trough time, of just 23 trading days, is an order of magnitude faster than the median – which stands at 17 months.

    Here Is a List of Companies That Have Suspended Dividends or Stopped Stock Buybacks in April

    After dozens of companies suspended or cut their dividends in recent weeks amid the coronavirus-driven business slowdown, some analysts believe dozens more are vulnerable across a variety of sectors. Take banks: After suspending stock buybacks in mid-March, eight big U.S. financial firms, including (BAC) (ticker: BAC) and (JPM) (JPM), appeared as though they could emerge from the coronavirus crisis with their dividends intact. After European and U.K. banks suspended their dividends on regulators' urging, however, investors began sell U.S. bank shares amid concerns that a similar request could be made by federal regulators.

    China's Luckin Coffee says business will continue amid financial fraud probe

    Luckin Coffee Inc said on Sunday it will maintain normal operations at its stores and apologised to the public, days after it announced an internal investigation had shown its chief operating officer and other employees fabricated sales deals. Shares of Luckin, which competes in China with Starbucks Corp, sank as much as 81% on Thursday in New York after it said the investigation had found that fabricated sales from the second quarter of 2019 to the fourth were about 2.2 billion yuan ($310 million). "Regarding the suspected financial fraud and the extremely bad impact it has caused, Luckin Coffee hereby sincerely apologizes to the public," the company said in a post on its official Weibo account.

The surge buoyed oil stocks and other energy-related industries, with many rising over 10%. Optimistic comments from President Donald Trump during a CNBC interview sparked the rally after he said he expected Russia and Saudi Arabia to slash oil production by 10 million to 15 million barrels.

    With a Seismic Change Coming to the Travel Industry, Dump CCL Stock

    Due to COVID-19 pandemic, Carnival packed a lot of bad news into the first three months of 2020, a theme that did relent on March 31. To cap what was a tumultuous quarter, Carnival said it's selling $1.25 billion worth of equity – diluting existing investors in the process – selling $4.75 billion worth of private debt and suspending its dividend so if you think the 15.19% yield CCL stock closed the quarter was tempting, don't take the bait. Carnival is taking those steps of capital conservation and raising because unlike airlines, casino operators and other U.S.-based big businesses that want to participate in the Treasury Department's $454 billion coronavirus loan program, Carnival isn't based in the U.S.
