Analysts said the changes to the methodology were fueling doubts about the accuracy of China’s figures.

Cleveland Federal Reserve Bank President Loretta Mester said Friday that fallout from the coronavirus on China could spill over to the U.S., but that business investment should otherwise pick up later this year.

  • Tesla Inc. /zigman2/quotes/203558040/composite TSLA -0.59%  shares closed 0.5% lower a day after the electric-vehicle maker surprised investors by announcing plans to offer around $2 billion of common stock in an underwritten deal.
