    Why Lumber Liquidators Shares Dropped Monday Morning

    Shares of Lumber Liquidators (NYSE: LL) fell 10% on Monday morning after the specialty hardwood flooring retailer posted a fourth-quarter loss due to accruals from legal settlements and warned of weakness in the upcoming first quarter. Lumber Liquidators has been bogged down by poor publicity and mounting legal fees stemming from a 2015 media report claiming that the company misled investors and consumers about selling laminate flooring that contained excessive amounts of the carcinogen formaldehyde. Lumber Liquidators also has a memorandum of understanding with plaintiffs in litigation relating to the claims, agreeing to contribute $14 million in cash and provide $14 million in store-credit vouchers while not admitting to any fault or liability.

    OPEC looks to cancel April meeting as oil-producer committee reports improved output-cut compliance

    The Joint Ministerial Monitoring Committee of oil producers on Monday reported a sizable improvement in compliance with production cuts implemented at the start of this year and recommended that the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries cancel its ministerial meeting scheduled for April. In Baku, Azerbaijan, the committee, also referred to as the JMMC, pegged compliance with the production pact at almost 90% in February, up from 83% in January. OPEC members had agreed to trim 800,000 barrels a day from October's production levels for six months through June of this year, with Russia and other allied producers cutting another 400,000 barrels a day to total 1.2 million barrels in cuts.

    Boeing 737 Max grounding could drag on, analyst says

    Boeing Co. (ba) investors are mostly focusing on how long and how expensive it will be for the aircraft maker to fix the problems that led to the two fatal crashes in less than five months, and how much to compensate airlines and bereaved families, said analysts at Vertical Research Partners, led by Robert Stallard. The analysts expect the 737 Max to be grounded for about 2 months, but that could be an "optimistic assessment" as the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration's approval process for the plane is being questioned, the analysts said in a note Monday. Shares of Boeing fell 2.5% on Monday.

    2 Brand-Name Pot Stocks That Will Lose Money in 2020

    Investors would struggle to find an industry that's growing at a faster and more consistent pace than the legal marijuana industry. According to an annual report from Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics, global cannabis sales are set to rise from less than $10 billion in 2017 to an estimated $31.3 billion by 2022. With Canada having legalized recreational marijuana, 33 U.S. states giving the green light to adult-use weed in some capacity, and more than 40 countries now on board with legalized cannabis to some degree, Wall Street and investors envision a pretty clear path to substantive profits for most pot stocks.

    Is Cloudera a Buy?

    In addition, the company's guidance for $835 million to $855 million of revenue in fiscal 2020 fell far short of the $965 million that Cloudera projected in its S-4 merger document last fall. While the headlines look bad, there's an awful lot of noise going on beneath these numbers, mostly involving accounting issues surrounding the integration of Hortonworks, which officially merged with Cloudera on Jan. 3. Sales disruption expected over the next two quarters and an accounting change are throwing off this year's numbers quite a bit.

    Micron earnings: As memory-chip glut persists, can forecast raise hopes?

    Micron Technology Inc. faces a lowered bar for its quarterly results, but will need to show signs of a turnaround in the memory chip market later to avoid yet more concerns. The Boise, Idaho-based chip maker has had to contend with its own success after booking record sales in its most recent August-ending quarter as vendors scrambled to stock up on DRAM and NAND memory chips while prices were on the rise. DRAM, or dynamic random access memory, is the type of memory commonly used in PCs and servers, while NAND chips are the flash memory chips used in USB drives and smaller devices such as digital cameras.

    Better Marijuana Stock: MedMen vs. Auxly Cannabis

    But while California claims the biggest legal marijuana market in the world, the state got off to a rocky start last year with the launch of its recreational pot market. If California cuts some of its red tape that is limiting the cannabis industry and lowers its too-high tax rates as some legislators are proposing, it could pave the way for MedMen's sales to soar. Probably the biggest near-term catalyst for MedMen is its pending acquisition of PharmaCann.
