No, it is bad because falling oil prices means that there is weak demand for oil because there is significantly falling economic activity.JohnQThomas said:When oil prices go down, it’s bad news because...we’re heavily invested in the oil industry?

Which securities? There might be a good reason others want to short them so badly.kel said:Both I and a coworker just got called by our brokerage saying we have some securities which are "hard to borrow" and that we should enroll in a program they have where we "loan" our shares to other brokerage customers looking to short sell them.
18.21% today. Just so that everyone's clear, these are mall REITs when there is a global slowdown on the horizon and a pandemic where everyone's afraid to go outside, let alone shop. So they're very high risk. These are not my cup of tea, but it's interesting seeing the kind of dividend they're paying.Lampwick said:
Multiple experts say to wait a few weeks to see how things shake out. Good advice, I think. One example, from someone whose advice I respect:jbkunt2 said:AYX tanked 18% today alone to $110. Time to load up?
https://moneyandmarkets.com/mohamed...dium=Email&utm_campaign=Daily-Article-TrafficAllianz Chief Economic Adviser Mohamed El-Erian said this morning as stocks cratered that we might not even be close to the bottom yet, and markets could drop 30% before finding a bottom from last month’s all-time record highs.
“This is going to be treacherous for a while. I would advise most retail investors to stay on the sidelines, not panic. There will be opportunities but they’re not now,” El-Erian said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” while the Dow Jones Industrial Average slid 1,800 points down at the market open. Oil prices also fell more than 20% this morning while the yield on the 10-year Treasury note dipped below 0.4%.

The Virus came first, then he stepped down. Most of America had/stil has no idea this virus is as serious as it is but he knew Disney was about to go in the shitter. He stepped down after 1 park closed down and 3-4 days before the Tokyo park closed(Obv he knew) and the cruise industry was clearly on its way to the shitter with the diamond princess mess and other ports beginning to refuse people. On top of that cancelation calls keeping the phone lines busy.bacon said:@Lampwick
I agree Disney is a good buy at these levels. They recently replaced their CEO when Eisner stepped down which had hurt the stock, then the impact of corona virus on the Park sales caused the stock to go down a lot.
I think the lower interest rates will just be temporary
Not for long.Dr. Howard said:
