Why Hong Kong-Listed Stocks Can Go On Such Wild Rides
Hong Kong may be Asia's premier financial hub and a favorite for U.S. and European stock investors, but away from the big names such as Tencent Holdings Ltd. traders must negotiate unusual practices that might seem out of place for the world's biggest markets. Here is a list of issues that are worrying some investors and vexing regulators.

Stocks edge higher at open as Dow, S&P 500 look to avoid four straight losses
U.S. stocks rose at the start of trade Friday, one day after both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 index closed lower for the third-straight session amid anxiety about the state of U.S-China trade relations. The Dow rose 56 points, or 0.2% to 27,818, the S&P 500 gained 7 points, or 0.2% to 3,111 and the Nasdaq Composite index advanced 23 points, or 0.3% to 8,531. Chinese President Xi Jinping injected a degree of trade optimism in markets when he told a forum in Beijing that "We want to work for a Phase 1 agreement on the basis of mutual respect and equality." Reports this week, however, have provided conflicting narratives of the state of talks, with some suggesting that a deal won't be reached this year. In company news, Nordstrom shares rose 8% early Friday after the department-store chain issued better-than-expected earnings and shares of Tesla Inc. fell 4.4% following the disappointing reveal of its anticipated "Cybertruck" late Thursday.

JM Smucker shares fall premarket after sales miss, lowered guidance
The J.M. Smucker Co. shares slid 2% in premarket trade Friday , after the distributor of Folgers and Cafe Bustelo brands missed sales estimates for its fiscal second quarter and lowered its full-year guidance. Orrville, Ohio-based Smucker said it had net income of $211.2 million, or $1.85 a share, in the quarter to Oct. 31, up from $188.5 million, or $1.66 a share, in the year-earlier period. Adjusted per-share earnings came to $2.26, ahead of the $1.97 FactSet consensus. Sales fell to $1.96 billion from $2.02 billion, below the $1.97 billion FactSet consensus. The sales decline was partly due to the sale of the company's U.S. baking business on Aug. 31. Chief Executive Mark Smucker acknowledged that the company's sales performance was below its expectations, but said cat food and pet snacks performed well, along with coffee brands. The company lowered its full-year guidance and said it now expects sales to fall 3%, compared with prior guidance of a decline of 1% to flat. It expects adjusted EPS to range from $8.10 to $8.30, down from prior guidance of $8.35 to $8.55. Shares have gained 11% in 2019, while the S&P 500 has gained 24%.

U.K. service PMI falls in November to worst reading in 40 months
The flash reading of the IHS Markit/CIPS flash U.K. services purchasing managers index fell to a 40-month low in November of 48.6, from 50 in October. The manufacturing PMI meanwhile slipped to a two-month low of 48.3 versus 49.6 in October. "The weak survey data puts the economy on course for a 0.2% drop in GDP in the fourth quarter, and also pushes the PMI further into territory that would normally be associated with the Bank of England adding more stimulus to the economy," said Chris Williamson, chief business economist at IHS Markit. "While Brexit issues such as stock-building and car factory closures have led to volatile GDP data so far this year, making monetary policymaking especially difficult and encouraging the Bank of England to sit on its hands until the fog clears, the PMI surveys are not only warning that the underlying trend in the economy is deteriorating markedly, but also that the labour market is cooling."

Eli Lilly to create 100 jobs in Indianapolis as it adds capacity to its technology center campus
Eli Lilly & Co. said Wednesday that it will create 100 new jobs in Indianapolis as it invests $400 million in its manufacturing facilities at its Lilly Technology Center campus. The drug maker said its plans are a result of increased demand for its medicines and for the production of additional capacity for future medicines, and are helped by having more capital available as a result of tax reform. "These investments support our manufacturing capabilities in Indianapolis, including additional capacity and technology upgrades to our active ingredient, syringe filling, device assembly and packaging operations," said Myles O'Neill, president of manufacturing operations. "All of these projects support Lilly's investment in next generation manufacturing and feature high levels of automation, robotics, new technologies and advanced data analytics." The stock, which was still inactive in premarket trading, has slipped 0.5% year to date, while the SPDR Health Care Select Sector ETF has climbed 13.0% and the S&P 500 has advanced 24.5%.
