U.S. Futures Dip With Trump Stoking China Tensions: Markets Wrap
(Bloomberg) -- U.S. futures edged lower and European stocks dropped on Friday as President Donald Trump's planned press conference on China threatened to further strain ties between the world's two largest economies. Treasuries gained alongside most European bonds.Contracts on the main U.S. equity benchmarks traded modestly lower as Trump appeared poised to sign a measure rebuking China for its treatment of Muslims, following Beijing's moves to enact a law that may curb freedoms in Hong Kong. Twitter Inc. shares slipped in pre-market trading after the company put a warning on one of Trump's recent posts, escalating their confrontation.The Stoxx 600 Index declined for the first time in five days, dragged lower by travel shares and automakers. The euro extended gains after the region's inflation rate fell to the lowest in four years, adding to reasons for authorities to expand monetary stimulus. The dollar weakened for a second day.Global stocks have mostly shrugged off escalating tensions between Washington and Beijing, but Trump's planned press conference appears to have spooked investors. It comes amid growing good news on the economic front as governments add to stimulus and ease lockdown measures in the wake of the coronavirus. Meanwhile, clues on the next stages for Federal Reserve policy may also come Friday, when Chairman Jerome Powell participates in a virtual discussion."I'm very cautious on my medium and even long-term outlook for the markets," Kate Jaquet, a portfolio manager at Seafarer Capi

UPDATE: Canopy Growth posts loss of C$1.33 billion as it books impairment and restructuring charges
Canopy Growth Corp. U.S.-listed shares tumbled 19% premarket, after the Canadian cannabis market leader posted weaker-than-expected earnings for its fiscal fourth quarter. Smith Falls, Ontario-based Canopy said it had a net loss of C$1.33 billion ($946.4 million), or C$3.72 a share, in the quarter to March 31, wider than the loss of C$347.5 million, or C$1.10 a share, posted in the year-earlier period. The loss included C$743 million in impairment and restructuring charges, most of which are non-cash, the company said. Revenue net of excise taxes rose to C$107.9 million from C$94.1 million. The FactSet consensus was for a loss per share of 59 cents and revenue of C$128.9 million. Chief Executive David Klein said the company was resetting its strategy to be faster and more agile with fiscal 2021 expected to be a year of transition. "Canopy Growth's overall strategy is to unleash the full potential of cannabis, capture sizable market share in focus categories and markets and execute a path to profitability to build sustainable, long-term shareholder value," the company said in a statement. As a result, and given the uncertainty created by the coronavirus pandemic, Canopy is withdrawing previously offered guidance for achieving positive adjusted EBITDA and net income. The company had a gross cash balance of C$2.0 billion as of March 31. Shares have gained 3% in the year to date, while the Cannabis ETF has fallen 11% and the S&P 500 has fallen 6%.
