Market Overview Earnings Recap Week Ending November 16th, 2018


NEW YORK, November 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

U.S. stocks plummeted through the entire week, continuing to push the market into bear territory. The Dow Jones plunged by over 600 points or approximately 2.23% on Monday due to decline in crude-oil prices and negative investor sentiment. The market was also driven down by a stronger dollar, which pressured investors. The stronger dollar is a concern because it can hurt sales of multinational companies. In addition, U.S. markets continued to fall throughout the week due to weaker-than-expected earnings, primarily driven by Apple's iPhone sales projections. The Nasdaq Composite fell by 4.18%, while the S&P 500 Index fell by 3.7%. Globally, markets fell after U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May's leadership and her plans for an organized exit from the European Union are being questioned after she received approval of her cabinet for a draft Brexit plan. The continuing Brexit negotiations are creating concern about slowing global growth, especially after Germany and Japan both reported declining economic data in their third quarters. Apple Inc.

"I believe [what] the stock market is experiencing is a continuation of the selling pressure that began in early October," wrote Robert Pavlik, chief investment strategist at SlateStone Wealth, in a note to clients. Pavlik also suggested that Trump is under greater pressure to reach some sort of a detente with China on the trade war, according to MarketWatch. "I suspect that given the recent election results with the Democrats taking control of the U.S. House of Representatives, President Trump probably thinks he needs a 'win,' and I believe that win will come eventually in the form of a trade deal with China. I don't suspect that the trade deal will be ideal. However, our president seems to be willing to claim any result as a win. With a trade deal behind us the market should be able recapture some confidence thus bringing in buyers."

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) shares plunged by 5.04% on Monday, falling below its USD 200.00 threshold. Apple's supplier Lumentum released an annual filing for its fiscal year and within the filing, Lumentum did not provide a forecast for Apple's orders.
