The Trump administration surprised global investors this morning by saying that it is preparing to impose tariffs on an additional $200 million worth of Chinese goods. The tariffs would slap 10% charges on a number of products, including produce, furniture, and baseball gloves.
Ryan recaps this new story and explains why the ongoing trade war drama has dragged the Shanghai index into a bear market. He also touches on earnings results from Fastenal (FAST ) and speculates as to whether a great Q2 report season could outweigh trade war fears.
Later, he touches on airline stocks, which fell in early trading Wednesday after American lowered its unit revenue guidance for the second quarter. American is still predicting TRASM growth, but its lowered guidance—and raised estimate for average fuel prices—underscores industry-wide headwinds which have hurt airlines this year.
Ryan checks in with American and discusses its new outlook. He also digs into several key charts from the “Big 3” airlines, as well as the broader industry. Can a strong summer travel season help these stocks rebound? Check out the show to hear what Ryan has to say!
