The ratings on the P&I classes, Classes F and G, were affirmed because the transaction's key metrics, including Moody's loan-to-value (LTV) ratio, Moody's stressed debt service coverage ratio (DSCR) and the transaction's Herfindahl Index (Herf), are within acceptable ranges. The rating on the P&I class, Class H, was affirmed because the rating is consistent with Moody's realized losses.

Oil producer Continental Resources is one of several US companies that have been able to cut borrowing costs after their credit ratings were upgraded to investment-grade on the back of rising commodity prices and a robust economy. The number of potential "fallen angels" that could move in the other direction dropped to 35 from 40 in the first quarter, which is the 10th consecutive quarter to see a reduction, according to Moody’s Investors Service. The proportion of potential fallen angels to "rising stars" also dropped to 1.9 times on March 31 from 2.7 times on December 31, according to Moody’s. It was as high as 5.7 times in the fourth quarter of 2015 after oil prices collapsed, which was the highest level since 8.0 times in June 2009, after the financial crisis.
"The luxury space is doing very well," says HSBC's Global Co-Head of Consumer and Retail Equity Research Erwan Rambourg, citing recent reports from Kering (PPRUY) and LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMUY), and it goes beyond strength in China, with American, Japanese and Western European consumers also feeling enthusiastic. Yet times are also changing for high-end retailers, which may not face the same kinds of pressures from Amazon.com (AMZN) as less-expensive brands, but still aren't immune to ecommerce. According to a recent survey Rambourg conducted, Chinese luxury consumers still prefer to buy their products on a company's website, with their second preference being to shop in stores in other countries (domestic stores are their third choice). Rambourg writes that he expects these multibrand ecommerce sites will certainly continue to gain steam, as the luxury consumer in China is becoming more skewed toward digital natives that spend hours online.

While shares of Dollar Tree (DLTR) have bore some fruit in the past year, they've lagged the market since the start of 2018, hurt by disappointing guidance and concerns that aggressive pricing from Walmart (WMT) could be a headwind for the stock.

Walmart appears to be translating tax savings into price cuts to gain market share, triggering a downgrade of so-called value retailers like Big Lots, Dollar General and Dollar Tree.
