Christine Idzelis of Institutional Investor reports that Apollo took just two months to raise a credit fund that seeks to profit from tumultuous markets — and it got a swift and significant contribution from Canadian pension manager IMCO:. When Apollo Global Management approached the Investment Management Corp. of Ontario about a credit fund it was raising in the market tumult caused by the coronavirus, the Canadian pension manger was ready to be nimble — even with its staff dispersed and working from home since mid-March. “It was clearly in the maelstrom, in the midst of the market chaos,” Christian Hensley, IMCO’s senior managing director of equ. 05/23/2020 14:23

Image: Five-day chart, S&P 500 Index. Source: Yahoo Finance. By Alex Veiga and Damian J. Troise. Stock indexes finished mostly higher Friday as Wall Street shook off an early slide, closing out a solid week of gains for the market. The S&P 500 index inched up 0.2% after having been down 0.5%. It ended the week with a 3.2% gain, largely due to a big rally on Monday that offset all of the benchmark index’s losses from earlier in the month. Strength in technology, communications and real estate stocks helped reverse much of the market’s early slide. Energy stocks fell the most as crude oil prices closed lower after six straight gains. Bond yields were mixed. Trading was choppy for much of the day ahead of the long holiday weekend. Markets in the. 05/22/2020 13:08
Image source: Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics. By Dan Burns. (Reuters) - Unemployment rates rose and total employment fell in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia in April as efforts to contain the coronavirus pandemic forced businesses to close across the United States, the Labor Department said on Friday. The department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics said 43 states set record-high rates of unemployment last month, with the highest being in Nevada, the state with the greatest reliance on the hard-hit food services and hospitality industry. 05/22/2020 12:34
By Lori Hinnant, Sheikh Saaliq and David Biller. NEW DELHI (AP) — The coronavirus pandemic accelerated across Latin America, Russia and the Indian subcontinent on Friday even as infection curves flattened and reopening was underway in much of Europe, Asia and the United States. Many governments — even those where the virus is still on the rise — say they must shift their focus to saving jobs that are vanishing as quickly as the disease can spread. 05/22/2020 12:02
Image source: BlackRock. Sustainable investing will sustain investment portfolios during times of market turmoil, according to BlackRock and Bank of America . Recent research from the firms shows that the majority of environmental, social and governance (ESG) investments outperformed their non-sustainable counterparts during the first quarter market crash. BlackRock, which made sustainable investing the focus of its investment strategy earlier this year, said its research has found a correlation between sustainability and traditional factors such as quality and low volatility, which its says indicates resilience. As a result, the firm expects sustainable companies to be more resilient during downturns. “In the first quarter of 2020, we have 05/22/2020 09:30
Image: Deere T Series Combine. Source: Deere & Co. (Reuters) - Deere & Co on Friday forecast a sharp fall in full-year profit as farmers and ranchers struggle to bring their goods to market because of coronavirus-led restrictions, crushing demand for equipment like harvesters and tractors. President Donald Trump announced a $19 billion relief program in April to help U.S. farmers cope with the impact of the health crisis, and analysts have said the additional liquidity will likely support farm machinery sales this year. Shares of Deere rose 3.6% to $148.00 in premarket trading after the company topped quarterly estimates for profit as demand for farm equipment fell less than feared and the company kept a tight lid on costs. The company typic. 05/22/2020 09:21
Image source: Alibaba Group. (Reuters) - China’s Alibaba Group Holding Ltd on Friday reported fourth-quarter revenue and profit that topped market expectations, as the COVID-19 lockdowns drove more people to shop online for essentials.

Revenue at its cloud computing business surged about 58%. With China’s economy starting up again much ahead of major economies in Europe and the United States, the e-commerce giant said it expects to generate over 650 billion yuan in revenue in fiscal 2021. The company has been pushin. 05/22/2020 08:54
By Elaine Kurtenbach. BANGKOK (AP) — Stock markets slipped on Friday, led by a nearly 6% decline in Hong Kong, after communist leaders in China proposed legislation that could limit opposition activity in the former British colony. For now, flaring tensions between the U.S. and China over Hong Kong and other issues appear to have eclipsed optimism over moves to reopen many economies stalled by the coronavirus pandemic. Germany’s DAX shed 0.3% to 11,028 while the CAC 40 in Paris lost 0.2%, to 4,425. 05/21/2020 16:57

By Michael Tackett. WASHINGTON (AP) — We are becoming a nation of amateur actuaries, calculating the risk of restarting our lives. Can we go outside? Can we go back to work? Can we go to a restaurant or bar? Can we go to the beach? Can our children go back to school? Can we visit grandma? The questions have an infinite run. The answers are less a product of math and hard science than one of highly variable, and often emotional assessment of the benefit relative to the cost. We know the odds of pre-coronavirus daily living. The lifetime chances of getting struck by lightning in the U.S. is about 1 in 180,000. Of dying in a car crash, about 1 in 106. Dying from heart disease? About 1 in 6. Dying from a storm? 1 in 54,699. Those statistics, dra. 05/21/2020 11:41
Image source: Best Buy. (Reuters) - Best Buy Co Inc said on Thursday it expects profit margins to be under pressure in the second quarter, as it spends more on expanding delivery services to support a surge in online shopping from people staying at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The company’s shares, which have gained nearly 60% in the last two months, fell 3.5%. The electronics retailer was forced to shutter stores across the United States for weeks to help contain the spread of the coronavirus, but its outlets continued to provide curbside delivery for online sales, which surged over 155% on a comparable basis. Best Buy said it was also ramping up its same-day delivery services, as people stuck at home under lockdown restrictions shop 05/21/2020 10:53
Image source: Macy's. (Reuters) - Macy’s Inc said on Thursday it could rack up operating losses of up to $1.11 billion in the first quarter, as the department store operator was forced to shut stores due to lockdowns aimed at curbing the spread of the new coronavirus. The health crisis has forced brick-and-mortar retailers to tap credit lines, lay off employees and suspend dividends and buybacks in a bid to stay afloat amid store closures. Just this month, several retailers, including J Crew, J.C. Penney and luxury store chain Neiman Marcus Group filed for bankruptcy after failing to cope with market uncertainties and mounting debt. Macy’s, which shut all of its 775 stores on March 18 to curb the spread of the coronavirus, hired investment b. 05/21/2020 09:54

By. Patturaja Murugaboopathy. (Reuters) - The monthly tally of defaults in the U.S. leveraged loan market has hit a six-year high, data from Fitch Ratings showed, as companies are either missing payments or filing for bankruptcy because of the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic.

The leveraged loan default total for the year to date is $33.3 billion, Fitch said. At the end of April, the trailing 12-month default rate jumped to 2.8%, compared to just 1.8% at the end of last year. 05/21/2020 08:51

By Michael Biesecker and Jason Dearen. WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican political operatives are recruiting "extremely pro-Trump" doctors to go on television to prescribe reviving the U.S. economy as quickly as possible, without waiting to meet safety benchmarks proposed by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to slow the spread of the new coronavirus. The plan was discussed in a May 11 conference call with a senior staffer for the Trump reelection campaign organized by CNP Action, an affiliate of the GOP-aligned Council for National Policy.
