In March 2018, US President Donald Trump tweeted, “Trade wars are good, and easy to win.” The basic premise behind this assumption is the massive trade deficit that the US runs with almost every major trading partner.
In the daily bar chart of AA, below, we can see that prices have been cut down from around $46 back in July to below $22 earlier this month. The On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line has done strange things the past twelve months. The OBV line was very steady when prices declined from July to late December.
Last month, US President Donald Trump increased tariffs on $200 billion worth of goods from China, accusing China of reneging on its previous commitments. President Trump sees China—and other trading partners, for that matter—ripping the US apart in terms of trade.

(Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Justice Department has opened a criminal investigation into allegations that chicken processors, including Tyson Foods Inc., Pilgrim’s Pride Corp. and Sanderson Farms Inc., conspired to fix prices.Prosecutors disclosed the grand jury probe in a court filing Friday in Chicago, where civil lawsuits against more than a dozen companies in the industry are pending. Tyson, Pilgrim’s and Sanderson alone control almost half of the U.S. chicken market.The investigation significantly escalates pressure on the poultry processors, which have been fighting price-fixing allegations by consumers, distributors, grocery chains and food companies, including Conagra Brands Inc. and Kraft Heinz Co.Tyson closed down 1.1% to $79.97 in New York, while Pilgrim’s settled down 1.3% to $25.18 and Sanderson dropped 2.2% to $131.03. Brazil’s JBS SA, which owns a controlling stake in Pilgrim’s, settled up 0.5% to 21.90 reais in Sao Paulo.A spokesman for the Justice Department declined to comment. Prosecutors intervened in the civil litigation to ask the court to suspend for six months depositions of the chicken processors’ current and former employees. Tyson said it was notified on April 26 that plaintiffs in the civil cases had received a subpoena from the Justice Department.“We are aware of the Department of Justice’s request, which does not change our view that there is simply no merit to the allegations that Tyson Foods colluded with competitors,” Gary Mickelson, a company spokesman, said in an emailed statement. “We remain committed to vigorously defending ourselves against these baseless allegations.”Sanderson Farms Chief Financial Officer Mike Cockrell said the company hasn’t received a subpoena. “The company continues to believe the civil plaintiffs’ claims as to Sanderson Farms are wholly without merit, and we are committed to defending the case vigorously,” Cockrell said in an emailed statement.Pilgrim’s Pride didn’t immediately respond to a request Tuesday seeking comment on the criminal probe.The poultry processors are accused in the civil lawsuits of colluding to increase prices for broiler chickens. The companies allegedly reduced the supply of broiler chickens and then manipulated prices on a weekly benchmark compiled by the Georgia Department of Agriculture, according to court papers.(Updates shares in fourth paragraph.)To contact the reporters on this story: David McLaughlin in Washington at email@example.com;Lydia Mulvany in Chicago at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Sara Forden at email@example.com, ;David Glovin at firstname.lastname@example.org, Steve Stroth, Peter JeffreyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
Kraft Heinz has lost half its value over the past year, and one analyst is worried the company could fall even further.
Warren Buffett recently said he overpaid for Berkshire Hathaway's stake in Kraft Heinz. To avoid following in his footsteps, here are three signs that you might be overpaying for a stock.

(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Oil and gas producer stocks are deeply unpopular. Oilfield services stocks, on the other hand, are deeply, deeply unpopular:The oily water in which the services companies swim is the money that exploration and production firms spend – and it has dried up. Analysts at Morgan Stanley have just reduced their forecasts for upstream capital expenditure. In the title of the report, “Global Upstream Capex: Growth Still in the Cards,” that “Still” does most of the work.At around $65 a barrel, oil remains well below those triple-digit salad days of early 2014. Still, it’s about double where it was in early 2016, and yet there’s precious little sign of that in E&P capex budgets. Something structural has happened.E&P stocks are unpopular because a decade of high spending did wonders for oil and gas output, “energy dominance” and C-suite pay, but little for investors. So the latter have gone on strike, demanding evidence of a change of heart on the part of management teams, chiefly in the form of tighter spending and more generous payouts to shareholders. You can see the problem for oilfield services, which profited nicely from the E&P sector’s pre-2014 largesse.At the same time, E&P companies still like to grow, so the pressure to do more with less remains high (especially as activists have begun beating the drum on this). Last year’s surge in U.S. oil and gas production was the biggest achieved by any country ever, according to BP Plc, even as upstream capex there was still 22% below the level of 2014.E&P companies depend on their services providers to help achieve the productivity gains that have fueled the shale “miracle.” Yet the rewards for this – such as they are - have flowed overwhelmingly to the client, not the contractor. A decade ago, the oilfield services sector earned a return on capital employed that was more than 13 percentage points higher than the E&P sector, according to analysts at Evercore ISI. By 2018, the sectors had switched places, with services earning 7 percentage points less than their clients. That is some transfer of value.The oilfield services industry shares some pathologies with the E&P business. Contractors invested too heavily in the boom, creating excess capacity and bloated cost structures. When the crash hit, they prioritized market share, the standard response in expectation of an eventual rebound – and the rebound hasn’t taken off. General Electric Co.’s ill-timed foray into the business via Baker Hughes and Weatherford International Ltd.’s meandering shuffle into chapter 11 have provided unwelcome narratives for all this. Today, despite deals such as the recently announced merger between Keane Group Inc. and C&J Energy Services Inc., the sector remains fragmented, particularly in those areas such as pressure pumping that service the U.S. shale industry.Shale is a blessing and a curse. On one hand, it has accounted for all of the growth in global upstream capex since the trough in 2016 and is set to contribute 29% of the forecast growth from here through 2022. On the other, it is a fragmented corner of the business that is highly sensitive to oil prices and has flattened the cost curve across the global industry. Besides trade-war concerns, expectations of frackers taking advantage of any geopolitical spike in oil prices to boost production have helped to keep a lid on that spike, despite numerous provocations.The upshot is a very narrow band in oil prices between celebration and belt-tightening. Morgan Stanley estimates $50 oil in 2020, as opposed to $60, would cut expected cash flow from operations in the global upstream business by a fifth, translating to a 13% drop in capex – which would take it below 2016 levels.Faced with such sensitivities, investors aren’t willing to pay a premium. Bellwethers Halliburton Co. and Schlumberger Ltd. trade at Ebitda multiples similar to where they were in 2015, when spending was headed down, rather than being priced for growth. Spending should grind higher from here; even so, the sector faces a deep-rooted challenge. For E&P companies to win favor with investors again, they must adhere to a regimen that won’t help their contractors win any popularity contests.To contact the author of this story: Liam Denning at email@example.comTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Mark Gongloff at firstname.lastname@example.orgThis column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Liam Denning is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering energy, mining and commodities.

Warren Buffett has denied that the problems at Kraft Heinz are causing tension between him and 3G Capital.
The six-day winning streak of the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index was broken today as the index fell 0.87% to close at 2,982.07. This was the longest winning streak in over a year for the index, which has gained 19.6% so far in 2019.
opened flat here on Tuesday morning as Warren Buffett said the biggest problem facing Kraft Heinz is that Heinz overpaid when merging with Kraft in July 2015. The charts of KHC (below) show that Buffett could have made this statement at any time in the last four years and certainly since early 2017, when the trend turned bearish. In this daily bar chart of KHC, below, we can see that prices have been under selling pressure/liquidation the past 12 months.
shares drifted lower Tuesday, extending a year-to-date decline of around 30%, after billionaire investor Warren Buffett said he 'overpaid' for the packaged food group when he purchased it along with 3G Capital in 2015, but pledged to support incoming CEO Miguel Patricio. Buffett, who stepped down from the Kraft Heinz board last year, told CNBC that even has he acknowledges the difficulties stemming from his 26.7% stake in the group, and the $3 billion goodwill writedown he was forced to take in February, his relationship with Brazil-based 3G co-founder Jorge Paulo Lemann remains solid and reports of tension between the pair are incorrect. vice chairman Greg Abe were "pleased with the selection of Miguel", who takes over as Kraft Heinz CEO on July 1.
