    Hospital Says Chinese Doctor Has Officially Died: Virus Update

    (Bloomberg) -- The Chinese doctor who issued an early warning about the coronavirus has died, said the hospital where he worked, ending hours of confusion about his status.The city of Wuhan told residents to begin reporting their body temperature daily, and the large port city of Tianjin said it would restrict residents’ movement, part of steps across the country to stop the coronavirus outbreak from spreading. In Beijing, the Chinese government voiced anger as countries placed more restrictions on travelers.Tesla temporarily closed its stores in the nation, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV warned that a China-related parts shortage could force it to idle a European plant, according to a report.

Another post mourning the doctor by Hu Xijing, the Global Times’s editor-in-chief, was also deleted.They were replaced later with suggestions the doctor was alive. Hu said in a Weibo post around 1 a.m. Beijing time that attempts were still being made to save Li. “We wish a miracle of life could happen,” Hu said.Bloomberg earlier reported Li’s death, citing a person familiar with the matter and state-affiliated media. The doctor had been infected with coronavirus before his death.Li’s reported passing quickly became a trending topic on the Chinese social-media platform Weibo around midnight local time, with the hashtags DoctorLiPassedAway and LiWenliangPassedAway attracting hundreds of millions of views. The World Health Organization, which had posted a tweet mourning Li, issued an update saying it had no information his status.The Wuhan doctor became well-known after, in early December before the outbreak of coronavirus exploded, he posted a warning on a social media platform about a SARS-like illness. Days after his warning, he was reprimanded by police for rumor-mongering online, according to his social media account.Canadian Evacuation From Wuhan Begins (2 p.m. NY)Canada’s first evacuation of citizens from Wuhan is underway.A plane with 194 people on board was stationed at a Wuhan airport and set to depart as soon as passengers go through the screening and boarding process.

The editor of the Chinese state media Global Times, which hours before said that Li had died, said in a social media post that efforts were being made to save him. Wuhan Central Hospital, where Li worked, also said that there were attempts being made to rescue him. Li’s status was not immediately clear.American Airlines Extends Flight Cancelations (12:11 p.m. NY)American Airlines Holdings Inc. extended the suspension of flights to Hong Kong from Los Angeles through March 27, citing reduced demand.

The exact cause of death wasn’t immediately known.Li on Dec. 30 posted in a social media group about a SARS-like illness that within weeks would explode into the coronavirus epidemic that has infected more than 25,000 people. Days after his warning, he was reprimanded by police for rumor-mongering online, according to his social media account. The Chinese Supreme Court later said the police were wrong to have taken the actions they did.The death was reported earlier by the Global Times, a Chinese state-run media organization, and other Chinese outlets. A person familiar with the situation confirmed Li’s death to Bloomberg.Economic Impact Will Be Limited, Envoy Says (9:45 a.m. NY)The impact of the coronavirus outbreak on the Chinese economy will be limited and short-term, the country’s envoy to the European Union, Zhang Ming, said in an interview. Smart investors shouldn’t lose confidence on the country’s prospects, the ambassador told Bloomberg TV.The priority of the Chinese government is to contain the virus and save lives, Zhang said. Asked about any fallout from the outbreak to the China-U.S trade deal, he reiterated that any impact will be limited, though he did acknowledge that the virus will affect both the Chinese and the global economy.Port City of Tianjin to Restrict Residents’ Movement (9:08 a.m. NY)Tianjin, a Chinese port city of some 15.6 million people, said it will restrict movement in residential compounds citywide in an effort to slow the coronavirus’s spread there.The city borders Beijing and has only reported 78 cases and one death so far, but authorities across China have taken drastic measures to slow the virus’s spread outside the center of the outbreak in Wuhan. There are more than 25,000 cases across China, concentrated mainly in Hubei province.Tianjin authorities said that residential areas will check and register people who come into communities, limit the access of deliveries and food orders, and restrict entrances and exits, according to the state media People’s Daily.The notice also calls for keeping track of people with electronic registration systems and enhancing management of rentals.Wuhan Tells Residents to Report Body Temperature (8:35 a.m. NY)The city of Wuhan told residents check their body temperature on a daily basis and report it to local health authorities, part of new steps to contain the coronavirus in the city of 11 million that’s the center of the outbreak.The city is conducting door-to-door inspections as well, and will send someone to check on people displaying a fever, according to a notice posted by the provincial government. People with symptoms will be sent to a community health center for evaluation.Fiat Chrysler Warns Disruption Could Shut Europe Plant (8:33 a.m. NY)Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV could be weeks away from needing to idle one of its plants in Europe because it’s running out of parts sourced from China, Chief Executive Officer Mike Manley told the Financial Times.Manley said one critical maker of components is putting European production at risk. He didn’t name the company or specify what type of parts, or say which of Fiat’s European factories may have to close.Hyundai Motor Co. said earlier this week it was halting production in South Korea because of the shortage of a wiring component sourced from China.Estee Lauder Cuts Profit Outlook Again, Citing Coronavirus (7:03 a.m. NY)Estee Lauder Cos. cut its earnings outlook for a second straight quarter, saying the coronavirus outbreak in China would crimp demand for luxury cosmetics.

The recommendation will still have to be discussed by OPEC+ ministers and the group hasn’t yet agreed on a date for an early meeting.Melco Scraps Plans to Invest in Crown Resorts (6:45 p.m. HK)Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited pulled out of a deal to invest in Australia’s Crown Resorts Limited, citing a “severe drop” in tourism to Asia and Macau’s decision to close casinos following the coronavirus outbreak.Tesla Temporarily Closes China Stores, CNBC Says (6:22 p.m. HK)Tesla has temporarily closed its stores in China as of Feb. 2, CNBC reported, citing a WeChat post from an unidentified company sales employee on that date.

The country is yet to record a single case, but has quarantined 243 people on the island of Natuna after they were evacuated from China.China Objects to Countries Imposing Travel Restrictions (5:39 p.m. HK)Authorities in Beijing are growing increasingly angry and have registered “strong objections” with countries imposing harsh travel restrictions on visitors from China.Nations are ignoring recommendations from the World Health Organization and the International Civil Aviation Organization, which have advised against canceling flight routes and limiting travel to affected nations, foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said.Coronavirus Cluster Linked to Singapore Business Event (5:35 p.m. HK)A Malaysian woman whose brother caught the coronavirus in Singapore also has the virus, widening a multinational cluster of cases linked to a meeting in the city-state.The 40-year-old woman’s older brother was the first Malaysian to be diagnosed with the pneumonia-causing illness. He was among more than 100 people who had attended a business event at Singapore’s Grand Hyatt hotel.GM China Car JV to Produce Millions of Face Masks (4:24 p.m. HK)SAIC-GM-Wuling Automobile, one of GM’s joint ventures in China, will start making face masks to help ease a shortage caused by the spread of the coronavirus in the country.More Businesses Caution on Virus Impact (4:20 p.m. HK)Volvo Car AB said two plants in China have not reopened and the shutdown would last a “few weeks,” Osram Licht AG also said some of its manufacturing facilities were temporarily shut, while Publicis Groupe SA said it was too soon to quantify the impact from the virus.CNOOC Declares Force Majeure on LNG Contracts (3:10 p.m. HK)China National Offshore Oil Corp. told some suppliers it won’t take delivery of liquefied natural gas cargoes, a rare step that shows how deeply the coronavirus is impacting global commodity flows.It’s among the first reports of a so-called force majeure clause being invoked in the global commodity market after mounting speculation that Chinese buyers of everything from copper to LNG could be forced to take the step.

Freight rates have swooned amid gathering indications that demand for cargoes will slump.There are signs of congestion building up at ports, and reports mills are cutting output, Rahul Kapoor, global head of commodity analytics and research for maritime and trade, told Bloomberg Television.Want to Avoid Virus on a Plane? Wash Your Hands (9:37 a.m. HK)Forget face masks and rubber gloves. The best way to avoid the coronavirus on a flight is frequent hand washing, according to a medical adviser to the world’s airlines.The virus can’t survive long on seats or armrests, so physical contact with another person carries the greatest risk of infection on a flight, said David Powell, a physician and medical adviser to the International Air Transport Association.

    Casino stocks fall as Macau shuts down for 2 weeks on coronavirus concerns

    Shares of U.S.-based casino operators with exposure to China were falling in premarket trading Tuesday, to buck the big rally in the broader stock market, after the gambling center of Macau said it was shutting casinos there for two weeks amid concerns over the rapid spread of the coronavirus. Wynn Resorts Ltd. had among the highest China exposure, as the company derived about 75% of total revenue from Macau over the last 12 months, according to estimates based on FactSet's proprietary algorithm. The stock fell 0.5% ahead of the open. Elsewhere, shares of Las Vegas Sands Corp. slipped 0.3% and MGM Resorts Ltd. gave up 0.7%.

    3 Big Stock Charts for Friday: Lyft, HD Supply, and Melco Resorts & Entertainment

    The big stock charts featured this week have mostly been cautious at best. Owing to skittish broad market trading amid coronavirus fears, the focus mostly has been on stocks with potential downside, particularly if U.S. stocks began a long-awaited correction.Source: Shutterstock But it's worth remembering that the financial news of the past few sessions hasn't been that bad. Equities showed strength on Thursday, with all three major indices rallying into the close to post solid gains for the day. Those indices still are not far from all-time highs.Underlying performance continues to be reasonably strong. Indeed, the three most valuable U.S. companies have posted impressive results this week, assuming Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) passes Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG,NASDAQ:GOOGL) for third place. And Amazon likely will move in behind Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) after a blowout fourth quarter report on Thursday afternoon.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Under-the-Radar European Stocks to Buy for 2020 In that vein, Friday's big stock charts take a more optimistic perspective, focusing on names with potential upside ahead. Two of these stocks have attractive technical setups. Another has room for a bounce after support held. As always, broad market sentiment has to cooperate. But investors looking for trades with upside should take a long look at these three charts. Lyft (LYFT)Source: Provided by Finviz Lyft (NASDAQ:LYFT) stock has struggled since its initial public offering ten months ago. And no doubt many investors remain deeply skeptical of the ride-sharing model.But the first of Friday's big stock charts shows an attractive technical setup and a potential catalyst looming just a week and a half out: * Resistance has held for LYFT stock around current levels going back to September, but the lows since then have moved higher. That creates a classic ascending triangle and suggests momentum is building as the stock tries to clear resistance. Shares clearly have exited a downtrend, even posting a bit of a reversal from a modestly narrowing descending wedge. Simply put, this is an attractive chart right now. * The fundamental case for LYFT might seem less bullish. After all, the company remains unprofitable even on an Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) basis. True net profitability might not arrive until 2023. But as I detailed just this week, Lyft has a more intriguing case than one might think. Performance over the past few quarters has been hugely impressive relative to expectations. And yet Lyft shares have lagged those of rival Uber (NYSE:UBER), whose 2019 performance has been uneven and whose stock is more expensive. Combine another earnings beat with the chart and the fundamentals and LYFT has a real chance to break out. * If Lyft can post another beat when it reports fourth quarter earnings on Feb. 11, the chart is set up for a nice post-earnings rally. Of course, that's a big 'if,' and LYFT has struggled despite topping analyst expectations in each of its first three quarters. With a cheaper price and a better chart, however, this time might be different. HD Supply (HDS)Source: Provided by Finviz HD Supply (NASDAQ:HDS) has a similar chart, but with one key difference: it looks like the breakout has begun. The second of our big stock charts looks bullish, and the industrial distributor has a solid fundamental case as well: * HDS stock has formed an ascending triangle and on Thursday managed to break through resistance to a six-month high. It's possible that the stock will dip back below the key level of $41. But HDS has seen solid volume in three straight green sessions, with particularly heavy buying yesterday. Moving averages have converged, setting up a "golden cross" as well. This simply looks like a stock ready to take off. * From a valuation perspective, there's plenty of reason for optimism as well. HDS stock trades at a little over 13x fiscal 2021 (ending January) earnings per share estimates. Other industrial distributors like W.W. Grainger (NYSE:GWW) and Fastenal (NASDAQ:FAST) have far higher multiples. HD Supply is separating into two public companies in a bid to close that valuation gap which could create a near- to mid-term opportunity. * There are risks. Most notably, both technically and fundamentally HDS needs external conditions to stay positive. But HD Supply stock looks like an intriguing trade for market bulls who are wary of owning an unprofitable name like LYFT. Melco Resorts & Entertainment (MLCO)Source: Provided by Finviz Melco Resorts & Entertainment (NASDAQ:MLCO) unsurprisingly has had a rough couple of sessions. The company's casino operations in Macau are under significant threat from the spread of coronavirus in China and Asia more broadly.But as the third of Friday's big stock charts shows, there is hope for a reversal: * Simply put, buyers stepped in. Support at this point has been confirmed repeatedly at $19. That level doesn't suggest zero downside from Thursday's close, but traders looking to play the range might well see MLCO as having a favorable risk/reward setup at this point. * Click to Enlarge Source: Provided by Finviz Taking the longer view, the case does seem a bit weaker. Like larger rivals Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS) and Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN), MLCO has traded sideways going back to 2013, albeit with a lot of volatility. Investors who believe the recent sell-off is overdone might well look to those larger names instead. But MLCO is a purer play on Macau than either Sands or Wynn, who have significant operations elsewhere. * It's too early to argue that MLCO, this time, is set for a consistent and sustainable rally. But it seems pretty clear that, at least for now, investors are willing to step into any declines under $20. That makes MLCO one of the more interesting buys for investors who believe coronavirus fears are overdone -- and for traders who see a reversal on the way.As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.
