Dow Jones Industrial Average contracts were down 0.3% while those on the Nasdaq 100 retreated 0.6%.

China Virus Concern Hammers Asian Stock Sentiment on Holiday Eve
(Bloomberg) -- Financial markets in Asia reeled on concern a deadly virus emanating from China will spread through the region. Moves were exacerbated as traders closed out positions in the run-up to Lunar New Year holidays.Chinese shares in Hong Kong headed for their worst day since October 2018, while global traders offloaded more than 7 billion yuan ($1 billion) of mainland shares through exchange links. MSCI Inc.'s Asian gauge dropped 1%.The virus is another test for a bull run in global equities, which rose to record last week after shrugging off concerns of a wider conflict in the Middle East. Four people have died and a number of medical workers have been infected by the new illness, which emerged in the city of Wuhan. It has since been detected in people in Japan, Thailand, South Korea, as well as other parts of China."It is uncertain how the virus outbreak will develop in China during the holidays," said Jackson Wong, asset management director at Amber Hill Capital Ltd. "We are holding more cash and we are avoiding travel-related stocks and some technology stocks that had already jumped a lot earlier."The Hang Seng China Enterprises Index slumped more than 3% in Hong Kong, where equities were also hit after Moody's Investor Service dowgraded the city's rating and China's new top official in Hong Kong urged the city to enact national security legislation. The CSI 300 Index of stocks in Shanghai and Shenzhen dropped 1.7%.The reaction seeped into broader global markets. S&P 500 Index f

3 Healthcare Stocks That Can Double in the Next Year
Risk and reward are two of the most commonly used words in investing. The two are symbiotic and complement each other perfectly. Where there is more risk, the reward is likely to be more abundant. Of course, the equation works the other way too: less risk, probably less reward.The thesis is simple: a company such as Google is likely a pretty safe place for an investment. But with a market cap of $1 trillion, how much value can the company add to its share price? On the other hand, investing in a fledgling biotech with life-changing treatments in the pipeline could potentially see an investment yield extraordinary returns. Let's not forget, though, this sort of investment also carries a significant amount of risk with it.With this in mind, TipRanks' Stock Screener pointed us in the direction of three Healthcare stocks the experts on the Street think could soar in the year ahead. And by soar, we mean at least double their current value. The risk here as an investor is higher, but as we know by now, so are the possible rewards. As an added bonus, all three currently have a Strong Buy consensus rating from the Street. Let's take a look at the data.ProQR Therapeutics (PRQR)ProQR's back story is unusual. The company was founded after CEO Daniel de Boer's newborn son was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. De Boer, with the help of several co-founders, then formed ProQR - a biotech with a focus on providing new medicines for rare diseases. There are approximately 7,000 rare diseases in the world today, and only 400 currently have treatmen

China Virus Outbreak Thwarts Most Bullish Stock Market in Years
(Bloomberg) -- A virus outbreak in China is sending shockwaves through the country's stock market, denting what had been growing enthusiasm toward shares.Consumer shares led losses in the FTSE China A50 Index of large caps Tuesday, which was set for its biggest drop in almost five months. Investors also sold crowd favorites such as liquor makers Wuliangye Yibin Co. and Kweichow Moutai Co., while travel operator China International Travel Service Corp. fell 3.5%. The offshore yuan slid as much as 0.5%, briefly trading on the weak side of 6.9 per dollar.The declines come just days before China celebrates the Lunar New Year, a typically strong season for traveling and consumer spending. Now, there's doubt that markets can continue their ascent after the week-long break."People are getting nervous and cashing out," said Wang Chen, a Shanghai-based partner with XuFunds Investment Management Co. He said his firm has cut some stock positions this week. "We have a long holiday coming up and the virus outbreak, and there was a bit too much hype in the market recently. Outflows via the northbound links and upcoming earnings season are also adding to caution.'Northbound stock links with Hong Kong will be shut for 5 trading days from Friday. After months of buying, foreigners had sold a net 5.1 billion yuan ($740 million) of mainland-listed shares as of the mid-day break, set for the most since early August.It marks an abrupt shift in market confidence, which was riding high as Beijing signed a phase one trade
