Dow's Black Friday plunge puts blue-chip stock gauge at risk of closing below 50-day moving averageU.S. stocks were facing their worst Black Friday trade in recent memory and the decline was putting the Dow Jones Industrial Average at risk of closing below its 50-day moving average for the first time since mid October, as markets wrestle with reports of a new coronavirus variant.The Dow was down 826 points, or 2.3%, to trade at 34,969, which is below its 50-day MA at 35,261.93. Scientists say the coronavirus strain has a high number of mutations that may make it more transmissible and allow it to evade some of the immune responses triggered by previous infection or vaccination. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 index , and the Nasdaq Composite Index were both trading sharply lower but holding above their short-term MAs. Moving averages are used by technical analysts to gauge short-term and long-term momentum in an asset.

S&P 500 ends just below record high above 4,700 on Thanksgiving's eve, as Nasdaq rises and Dow closes flatU.S. stocks finished mostly higher on the eve of Thanksiving as investors parsed a deluge of data, including minutes from the Federal Reserve's November meeting, which indicated that inflation pressures could take longer to subside than previously thought and that members of the central bank raised the possibility of ending bond purchases sooner than they planned if high prices persisted. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed in negative territory but virtually unchanged at around 35,805, on a preliminary basis, the S&P 500 index advanced 0.2% to around 4,701, just below a Nov. 18 closing record high at 4,704.54, and the Nasdaq Composite Index gained 0.4% at roughly 15,845. U.S. markets will be closed on Thursday for Thanksgiving and will see an early finish on the following Friday session. An account of the Fed's Nov. 2-3 meeting showed that most senior officials at the central bank still expect price rises to slow next year, but they also acknowledged "inflation pressures could take longer to subside" than they previously believed due to continuing labor and supply shortages. Earlier investors digested U.S. economic data showing first-time claims for unemployment benefits plunged by 71,000 to 199,000 last week, the lowest levels since 1969. In other data Wednesday, the pace of economic growth in the third quarter was raised to a 2.1% annualized rate versus an initial estimate of 2%. The U.S. trade deficit in goods narrowed sharply in October. Data also highlighted historically elevated levels of inflation, with a measure of the cost of goods and services jumping 0.6% in October, based on the personal consumption expenditure index or PCE, and rose 5% over the past year from 4.4% in September. That's the highest level since December 1990. The PCE index is the Federal Reserve's favored inflation indicators. In corporate news, shares of Nordstrom Inc. slumped nearly 30% Wednesday after the department store chain reported third-quarter earnings short of analysts' expectations.

U.S. oil down early Tuesday as White House announces release of 50 million barrels from strategic reservesWest Texas Intermediate oil oil was down sharply on Tuesday as President Biden to release 50 million barrels of oil from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve, or SPR, in coordination with other countries, to help ease pricing pressures, supply-chain bottlenecks and surging demand that have emerged in the economic recovery phase of the COVID-19 pandemic. WTI crude for January delivery was trading 29 cents, or 0.4%, lower at $76.43 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, after rising 1.1% on Monday. "As we come out of an unprecedented global economic shutdown, oil supply has not kept up with demand, forcing working families and businesses to pay the price," wrote Secretary Granholm, U.S. Secretary of Energy, in a Tuesday statement. "This action underscores the President's commitment to using the tools available to bring down costs for working families and to continue our economic recovery," the energy secretary said. The White House said that the release will come in two parts: 32 million barrels will be an exchange over the next several months, releasing oil that will eventually return to the SPR in the years ahead; and "18 million barrels will be an acceleration into the next several months of a sale of oil that Congress had previously authorized." The statement from the White House said that the U.S. would be ready to take additional action as needed to relieve pricing pressures. The U.S.'s SPR is the world's largest emergency stockpile of crude oil. The SPR was established primarily to reduce the impact of disruptions in supplies of petroleum products and to carry out obligations of the United States under the international energy program, according to the Energy Department. The stocks in the reserve, which have an authorized capacity of 714 million barrels, are federally owned and are stored in underground salt caverns at four sites along the Gulf of Mexico coastline. As of Nov. 12, the SPR had a total of 606.1 million barrels of crude oil, following a drawdown of 11.6 million barrels in October. The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies, including Russia, known as OPEC+, have rebuffed calls to increase production, amid concerns that the current prices will compromise the global economic recovery. Biden had previously asked China, Japan, India and South Korea to also release strategic oil along with the U.S. to help lower prices across the globe.

Barclays initiates coverage of Tilray, Cronos and Canopy GrowthBarclays analyst Guarav Jain on Thursday initiated coverage of three cannabis stocks but said their businesses are limited by the relatively small size of the legal market in Canada. Barclays launched overage of Tilray and Cronos with an underweight rating and price targets of $10 and $5.50 respectively. Barclays also initiated coverage of Canopy Growth with a price target of $14 and a equal weight rating. Canada will account for about 30% of Canopy's and Tilray's operating enterprise value, and about 40% for Cronos. "The rest of their enterprise value is attributable to optionality in the U.S. market" through alliances with U.S.-based multi-state cannabis operators, he said. "Canadian companies cannot directly invest in the US market. They are entering into structured transactions with U.S. multi-state operators that would convert into minority stakes upon U.S. federal legalization. We think the benefit of these deals accrues to the shareholders of MSOs rather than those of the Canadian companies."
