“Black “Price Drop” Friday” – Vista Partners Daily Market Recap 11/23/2018

Prices weren’t the only thing dropping this Black Friday, US stocks also saw cuts during this holiday-shortened trading session that closed at 1pm eastern. The S&P 500 sank 0.66% (17.37 points) and the Dow dropped 0.73% (178.74 points). The Nasdaq also dipped into the red with losses of 0.48% (33.27 points) shedding some gains from earlier in the day.

In general, most components of the Dow saw shares decline today, but United Technologies Corporation (UTX) was able to buck that trend with gains of 2.65%. On the other side of the spectrum, Chevron (CVX) had the worst day with a loss of 3.38%. Exxon (XOM) was next to worst as it tumbled 2.66% by the end of trade day.

Seattle based Biotech firm Atossa Genetics (ATOS) also saw red as it dropped 5.00% today.

Despite the poor showing for stocks, Black Friday sales seem to be doing just fine. So far, it appears that online sales have spiked this year; as of 10 a.m., they were up 27.8% when compared to last year. Thanksgiving Day sales also impressed, demolishing previous records as they soared past $3.7 billion.

According to Taylor Schreiner from Adobe Digital Insights, “Mobile stole the show Thanksgiving day with smartphones representing more than 50% of traffic to retail sites, as well as a record amount of revenue.”

“Downturn” – Vista Partners Daily Market Recap 11/13/2018

While the market stayed positive for most of Tuesday, it took an abrupt downturn around midday and wiped out most of the gains that Nasdaq had made and drove the S&P 500 and the Dow into the red. When all was said and done, the Nasdaq came out on top with a gain of 0.02% (1.48 points) while the S&P 500 lost 0.30% (8.04 points) and the Dow dropped 0.65% (164.58 points).

Many of the components of the Dow saw little change from their opening price as trade ended. Exxon Mobil (XOM), though, saw shares drop 2.29%. Boeing (BA) wasn’t far behind with losses of 2.10%. It wasn’t all bad news though, as Intel (INTC) had gains of 1.59%.

Apart from the Dow, Atossa Genetics (ATOS) had a very good day as it soared to an increase of 7.50%.

Crude oil continued its decline today, marking the twelfth straight session it has seen losses and the longest losing streak it has ever seen. On the other hand, natural gas was doing quite well as it rose 8% by the end of trading.

The big news from Amazon (AMZN) today was that it officially announced what had been suspected for some time: it will be opening two new headquarters in New York and Northern Virginia that should create around 50,000 new jobs. Jeff Bezos, Amazon CEO, said, “These two locations will allow us to attract world-class talent that will help us to continue inventing for customers for years to come.”

Exxon Mobil (XOM) Corporation is a global oil and natural gas company.  Founded in 1870 and headquartered in Irving Texas, Exxon Mobil explores for and produces crude oil and natural gas, manufacture and markets commodity petrochemicals, and transports and sells crude oil, natural gas, and petroleum.

Exxon Mobil recently announced its Q3 2018 financial results and earnings. The company outshone its earnings expectations of $1.199 per share with $62 billion in earnings or $1.46 per share.

Cash flow from operations and asset sales was reported at $12.6 billion. $3.5 billion was distributed in the form of dividends to shareholders. Capital and exploration expenditures rose 10 percent year-over-year to $6.6 billion.

Oil-equivalent production was down 2 percent from third quarter 2017, but saw an increase from second quarter 2018 at 3.8 million barrels per day.

Darren W. Woods, chairman, and chief executive officer stated, “We’re pleased with the increase in production from the second quarter of 2018 recognizing it reflects contributions from just one of our key growth areas, the Permian.

“Broken” – Vista Partners Daily Market Recap 11/2/2018

The three-day rally begun on Tuesday was officially broken today as the market was dragged down by underperforming tech stocks. The Nasdaq slid 1.04% (114.59 points) while the S&P 500 dropped 0.65% (17.96 points). The Dow also fell to end the day with losses of 0.45% (114.59 points).

While most of the Dow’s components saw moderate losses today, there were some exceptions. Apple (APPL), for one, plunged 6.63% during the day. In the other direction, there was Chevron (CVX) with gains of 3.20% and Exxon Mobil (XOM) which reported increases of 1.59%. Seattle-based biotech firm Atossa Genetics (ATOS) closed Friday’s trading session flat at $1.33 after moving up to $1.37.

Tech stocks were the main culprits for weighing down the markets. This was exemplified by Apple’s losses mentioned above, despite its mostly positive quarterly report released yesterday. Brian Belski of BMO Capital Markets remains unconcerned by October’s overall volatility, let alone today’s losses. He stated, “Indeed, positive fundamentals and steady macro data remain in place, thereby providing investors with one of the best buying opportunities in several months. Thanks, October.”

ExxonMobil Plans Petchem Plant and LNG Investment in China

ExxonMobil announced that it recently signed a preliminary deal to build a petrochemical complex and invest in a liquefied natural gas terminal in China. The deal with the southern Guangdong provincial, which is worth billions of dollars, includes a 1.2 million-tonne-per-year ethylene plant, two polyethylene production lines, and two polypropylene lines in the city of Huizhou.

The company has also agreed to take part in a provincial project of building a liquefied natural gas terminal in the coastal Huizhou and to also supply the liquefied natural gas for the terminal. China is granting greater access to its massive chemical markets for both global majors and local independents. Exxon would be one of just a few international oil majors to invest in the liquefied natural gas in China.

Exxon’s agreement follows the German chemical giant BASF’s $10 billion investment to build the first wholly foreign-owned chemicals complex in China. BASF’s complex will also be built in Guangdong and will produce 1 million tonnes a year of ethylene through a steam cracker.

Exxon’s deal with China could be seen as a goodwill gesture by the country during a heightening trade war between the US and China.

The local government of Guangdong province and Huizhou, along with Guangdong Yuedian Group, the state power company signed the preliminary deal.

After a joint study signed late last year, the petrochemical deal did not come as a surprise, but the liquefied national gas was not expected and it marks the second investment in China’s gas infrastructure by an international oil company.

Saul Kavonic, director for Asia Pacific markets and head of energy research at Credit Suisse in Australia stated, “It marks a salient step for Exxon in their pursuit of becoming an LNG portfolio player.”
