    Markets in Crisis (Cue the CNBC Armageddon Music)

    Apple (AAPL) got a downgrade, and Cirrus Logic (one of Apple’s suppliers)(CRUS) pre-announced a miss for the December quarter.  But most eyes were focused on the two-pronged trade war and rate move.  Suddenly, the Dow (DIA) was down 800 points, and the Nasdaq (QQQ) dropped as much as 3%. The 10-yr treasury yield dropped as low as  2.88% today, down from a high of 3.24% a month ago.  And the prevailing wisdom is that when 10-yr yield drops like that, it is foreshadowing lower economic growth ahead.  Add that to the Fed still seemingly about to raise short term rates on Dec. 19th to 2.25%-2.5%, and we are very close to an inverted yield curve, which supposedly predicts recessions.

    Twilio Stock Isn’t Good Enough to Keep Growing as Tech Tanks

    The last redoubt of the bull market, the cloud service stocks, was taken Nov. 19 as Twilio (NASDAQ:TWLO) fell 15% despite an absence of news. Twilio stock has been on fire in 2018, and even with the hard fall of $12.27 in intraday trading, and another $1.72 drop overnight, it was still due to open nearly three times higher than the $25.78 price it fetched at the start of the year. The rout of Twilio stock on Nov. 19 was joined by other cloud stocks and the First Trust Cloud Computing ETF (NYSEARCA:SKYY), which fell 3.53%.

    ‘Last Mile’ Dominance Cannot Help Comcast Corporation Stock

    As recently as even a few years ago, the latest moves by Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ:CMCSA) would likely have been cheered by Wall Street, and Comcast stock was an easy choice.

(NYSE:T), is trying to buy both Sky plc (OTCMKTS:SKYYY) and the entertainment assets of 21st Century Fox (NASDAQ:FOXA) the Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) previously negotiated a price on. It’s the kind of big money boardroom tussle analysts love, but analysts are waking up to the fact we live in a cloud-based world and are suddenly frightened of the debt Comcast would take on if these deals get done.
