That Sounds Familiar?

White House advisor Larry Kudlow indicated that the U.S. and China are “getting close” to a deal.  Commerce Secretary Ross said the two countries are working diligently and are trying to come to terms on the fine details.  This sent futures higher in the overnight session even though it feels like we have repeatedly heard the same statements before with no results.

 

Under the Armour

The WSJ reported that former executives said they scrambled to meet aggressive sales targets, borrowing from future quarters to mask slowing demand in 2016.  The company has recently come under investigation for their accounting practices.  Under Armour has responded to the article saying their accounting practices were entirely appropriate and their actions were part of the normal business practices in the apparel, footwear, and retail industries.

Mickey says: How about those numbers, Netflix?

Disney (DIS) shares rose over 7% yesterday to a new record closing price of $146.39 on a strong debut of their new Disney+ streaming service.  The company announced that it had signed up over 10 million subscribers, within a day of launching.  Although an impressive number, the company did not give details on how many were on promotions.

 

The Cisco Slide

The networking giant stoked fears of a global slowdown in tech when the company issued a disappointing forecast for the second consecutive quarter during its earnings call.  The CEO said ‘the entire quarter was worse than we had expected’ and the company projected that revenue would fall between 3% and 5% year over year.

The Week Ahead

 

Single and Ready to Mingle

Alibaba (BABA) has just reached $33.3 Billion in sales in the space of 24 hours amid the ever-growing popularity of singles day in China. Today becomes the world’s largest shopping event pacing both Black Friday and Cyber Monday in the United States. Surprisingly, shares of BABA are down nearly $2 ahead of the open at $185, but up nearly 5% so far in the month of November leading up to the awe-inspiring event. 

 

Sparking Interest

Shares of automaker, TESLA (TSLA) are getting a boost today after an astronomic $100 jump in a price target was announced by an analyst this morning.  TSLA has been on a rampage since reporting a profit in their last quarterly result which has shares bouncing back to January highs near $342.  Sustained profitability was cited as the primary factor in the change.

 

Movers and Shakers (pre-open)

Chewy (CHWY) –The rapidly growing online pet products seller is finally seeing positive movement this morning from an analyst price raise to $29 a share. Shares have slipped near lows of $22.99 with 9 of the last 10 sessions trading weaker.  The CEO purchased nearly $1 million worth of shares earlier in October in a show of confidence. 

 

S&P 500 futures (/ES) -0.4% near 3078
