    The stock market dealt with continued volatility on Tuesday, with investors uncertain how to react to a mix of earnings and geopolitical news. Throughout most of the day, market participants were trying to predict whether the Trump administration would move forward with its plans to withdraw the U.S. from the nuclear deal with Iran, and major benchmarks stayed in a relatively tight range with a downward bias during the morning and early afternoon. After the expected announcement, the Dow fell to a triple-digit loss late in the afternoon, but it recovered by the end of the session. Adding to the gloominess was bad news regarding some key individual stocks. DISH Network (NASDAQ:DISH), Gogo (NASDAQ:GOGO), and Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE:HTZ) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

That was one of the takeaways from the Sohn Investment Conference, an annual event held in New York City to raise money for pediatric cancer care and research. Hedge fund managers, venture capitalists and other big investors took the stage at Lincoln Center on May 8 to present some of their best ideas, offering tips on what to buy and what to sell short (a technique for profiting off falling share prices).

Some of these ideas may be too esoteric, or risky, for most investors. One fund manager pitched the idea of profiting off non-performing Italian loans by buying shares in Italian bank UniCredit. He also suggested betting against bonds issued by the British government (which he doesnt think will do well in the aftermath of Brexit). Hedge fund billionaire David Einhorn suggested shorting energy-services company Core Laboratories (CLB, price $106.76). (Share prices are as of May 9.)

A strategic mistake made six years ago by celebrity CEO Ron Johnson continues to haunt popular retailer JC Penney, as evidenced by the ongoing sluggish sales growth and store closings that have made the company smaller—a fraction of what it once  was.

Meanwhile, investors have been bailing out from the company’s stock, which trades in the middle single digits — a long way from the upper 30s, where it was trading back in 2012. 

JC Penney’s woes began with a change in the retailer’s pricing strategy –replacement of coupon sales with everyday low prices.
