    U.S. senators scrutinize meat packers' big profits during pandemic

    U.S. senators are calling for investigations of record profit margins for beef processors like Tyson Foods and Cargill, after ranchers complained surging meat prices due to coronavirus hoarding did not translate into higher cattle prices. Futures prices for cattle have tumbled during the outbreak, worrying farmers as the U.S. economy heads into a downturn and fueling questions about whether the market run by CME Group is an effective tool for risk management. Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa wrote on Twitter that U.S. Department of Agriculture, Department of Justice and Commodity Futures Trading Commission probes may be needed to determine why ranchers did not benefit from soaring meat demand.

    Nightmare Haunting Euro Founders May Be a Reality With Italy

    The longstanding suspicion that Italy's profligate borrowing could ultimately become the whole of Europe's problem was the recurring nightmare of German finance officials throughout the 1990s. Now, as the crisis forces Giuseppe Conte's government to jettison a decade of tightly capped Italian budget deficits, the country's strategy for the future is once again built on piling up debt, sending its public borrowings swelling toward or even beyond 150% of gross domestic product. The upshot is that Italy's finances now depend wholly on the European Central Bank keeping a lid on its borrowing costs.

The movements suggest that Riyadh is ramping up its oil production toward its target of supplying a record 12.3 million barrels a day in April, up from about 9.7 million in February, despite American pressure to end the oil price war.

    The analysts covering Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:HTZ) delivered a dose of negativity to shareholders today, by making a substantial revision to their statutory forecasts for this year. There was a fairly draconian cut to their revenue estimates, perhaps an implicit admission that previous forecasts were much too optimistic. Following the latest downgrade, the six analysts covering Hertz Global Holdings provided consensus estimates of US$8.7b revenue in 2020, which would reflect a definite 11% decline on its sales over the past 12 months.

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

    JPMorgan's Global Quantitative and Derivatives Strategy team, led by Marko Kolanovic, has been crunching the numbers on the coronavirus pandemic, and found that the forecasts can vary wildly, with predicted economic declines ranging from 20% to 70%, depending on which data the analyst chooses to start with. The JPMorgan report does offer a ray of hope: because the hospital numbers are a lagging indicator, it is possible that the social containment measures have taken hold and brought us closer to the inflection point – and that infection rates will soon start declining. Kolanovic writes, “Taking into account the unprecedented monetary and fiscal measures being implemented, as well as unprecedented asset declines over the past month, we maintain that asset price recovery is likely and our pre-pandemic equity price target for 2020 is achievable sometime in the first half of 2021.”
