Dow threatens eighth straight drop as trade remains at forefront
U.S. stocks opened slightly lower on Thursday, with the Dow on pace to extend its lengthy losing streak to an eighth straight day as uncertainty over trade policy continued to dominate investor sentiment. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 0.2% to 24,593. If the blue-chip average finishes in the red, it will match its longest losing streak since March 2017. The S&P 500 was unchanged at 2,768. The Nasdaq Composite Index rose 0.3% to 7,803. The Nasdaq, as has recently been the case, was supported by gains in large internet and technology stocks. Notably, Micron Technology Inc. jumped 4.6% a day after reporting strong results and giving an optimistic forecast. Broadly, markets remain fixated on trade tensions between the U.S. and key trading partners such as China and the European Union. Investors are worried the tensions and recent tariffs could develop into a headwind for the global economy. These concerns come as the U.S. economy, the world's largest, is increasingly viewed as in the late stages of its expansion.

Shares in German auto makers fall after Daimler warning, tariffs proposal
Shares in German auto makers fell Thursday as traders assessed a profit warning from Daimler AG as well as the companies' support of a tariffs proposal. Daimler issued a surprise profit warning late Wednesday, saying Chinese retaliatory import duties on vehicles built in the U.S. would hit sales and profits of the SUVs it builds at its Alabama factory. Meanwhile, Daimler, BMW AG and Volkswagen AG have thrown their support behind the abolition of all import tariffs for cars between the European Union and the U.S. in an effort to find a peaceful solution to the brewing trade war. Shares in Daimler were down 2.9%, BMW fell 2.2%, and VW dropped 1.3%.

Sirius XM stock falls after Goldman downgrades to sell
Sirius XM Holdings Inc. shares are down 4.1% in Thursday trading after Goldman Sachs analyst Brett Feldman downgraded the stock to sell from neutral. "We believe the stock's material YTD outperformance ( 40% vs. 4% for the S&P 500) has been driven primarily by a range of positioning factors including its relationship with its tracking stock , declining short interest, and Sirius's high share repurchases relative to its low float," Feldman wrote. "We see limited upside potential to subscriber and financial estimates over the near-to medium-term given the slowing pace of new car sales in the US, a maturing used car subscriber acquisition funnel and limited opportunity to increase pricing in the near-term." He has a $6 price target on the stock. Sirius's stock has gained 43% over the past 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained 14%.

Bank of England holds key rate at 0.5% in 6-3 vote; pound surges
The Bank of England on Thursday left its key interest rate at 0.5%, meeting widely held expectations. But the vote was 6-3, a change from the bank's prior tally of 7-2 to make no changes in policy. Thursday's decision comes as inflation has slowed to a 2.4% rate but is still above the bank's 2% target. "Inflation is expected to pick up by slightly more than projected in May in the near term, reflecting higher dollar oil prices and a weaker sterling exchange rate," the bank said in a statement. The size of the bank's asset purchase program was held at £435 billion ($570 billion). The pound jumped to $1.3206 from $1.3125 just before the decision was released. Sterling late Wednesday traded at $1.3173.

Western Digital stock gains after upbeat forecast from Micron, positive commentary from Guggenheim
Shares of Western Digital Corp. are up 2.2% in premarket trading Thursday following an upbeat memory outlook from Micron Technology Inc. in conjunction with its latest earnings report as well as a positive note from Guggenheim analyst Robert Cihra. "We continue to estimate WDC's fastest-growing segment in CY18E being its data center group...with ALL of that growth coming from a big reacceleration in high-capacity (nearline 7200-rpm) enterprise HDDs shipping into booming hyperscale cloud capex" wrote Cihra. He estimates that this segment will grow 19% year over year and come to represent 31% of Western Digital's total revenue, up from 28%. "We estimate WDC's Enterprise SSD revs down Y/Y through the June quarter but with new products potentially driving improvement starting 2H18E," Cihra wrote. Enterprise SSDs could "reaccelerate" during the second half of 2018, he said. Western Digital shares are down 12% over the past 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained 14%.
