Canopy Growth shares drop on wider-than-expected loss
Canopy Growth Corp. shares fell 11% in premarket trades Friday after it said its fourth-quarter loss narrowed to C$574.6 million, or $1.46 a share, from C$700 million, or $1.85 a share in the year-ago quarter. Revenue for the three months ended March 31 fell to C$126.1 million from C$167.4 million in the year-ago period. Analysts expected Constellation Brands Inc.-backed backed Canopy Growth to report a loss of 30 cents a share on revenue of C$129.9 million, according to FactSet. Looking ahead, Canopy Growth expects to generate positive adjusted Ebitda in fiscal year 2024, excluding investments in BioSteel drinks and its U.S. THC businesses. "Achieving profitability is critical and we have undertaken additional initiatives to streamline and drive efficiencies for our global cannabis business," said CEO David Klein. "In FY2023, we are focused on executing our path to profitability in Canada, while we continue to invest in high potential opportunities -- particularly in BioSteel, and further developing our U.S. THC ecosystem, which we believe remains significantly under-appreciated by the market." Prior to Friday's trades, shares of Canopy Growth are down 35.5% in 2022 compared to a drop of 25% by the Nasdaq and a loss of 41.9% by the Cannabis ETF .

Big Lots stock plunges after swinging to surprise loss and sales miss, and as gross margin contracted
Shares of Big Lots Inc. plunged 21.2% toward a two-year low in premarket trading Friday, after the home discount retailer swung to a surprise fiscal first-quarter loss and sales that fell more than forecast, as gross margin fell amid challenging changes in consumer demand. The net loss for the quarter to April 30 was $11.1 million, or 39 cents a share, after net income of $94.6 million, or $2.62 a share, in the year-ago period. The FactSet consensus was earnings per share of 95 cents. Sales fell 15.4% to $1.37 billion, below the FactSet consensus of $1.46 billion, while same-stores dropped 17.0% to miss expectations for an 11.4% decline. Gross margin contracted to 36.7% from 40.2% as selling and administrative expenses declined just 3.3%. For the fiscal second quarter, the company expects same-store sales to decline in the single-to-high single digit percentage range, compared with the FactSet consensus for a 1.5% decline. "We expect the environment to remain challenging and we remain highly focused on managing the business prudently, which includes aggressively right-sizing our inventories over the course of Q2," said Chief Executive Bruce Thorn. "We are focused on opening price points that drive traffic and improving gross margin rates through capitalizing on significant close-out opportunities, more targeted pricing and promotions, minimizing supply chain charges, and reducing shrink." The stock has already tumbled 32.0% year to date through Thursday, while the S&P 500 has lost 14.9%.

Biden plans to cancel $10,000 in student loans per borrower, announcement won't come this weekend: report
President Joe Biden had planned to announce forgiveness for student loans as soon as this weekend as he gives a speech at the University of Delaware's commencement, but that timing has changed after Tuesday's school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, according to a Washington Post report on Friday citing unnamed sources. White House officials currently plan to cancel $10,000 in student debt per borrower, limiting the forgiveness to Americans who earned less than $150,000 in the prior year, or less than $300,000 for married couples filing jointly, the report said. That would be in line with what was expected.

Inflation Bear Market: 4 Large-Cap Stocks to Buy
The industry stalwarts can combat inflation and reward investors over time.

Is the Stock Market Closed on Memorial Day 2022?
Americans will commemorate its fallen military personnel, and mark the unofficial start of summer, this Memorial Day, Monday, May 30. And the stock market will indeed be closed for Memorial Day, ensuring that investors can focus on the events of the day rather than watching the stock market continue its roller-coaster ways.

In many ways, 2022's day of commemoration is sure to feel more normal than the past two years. The COVID-19 pandemic largely clamped down on celebrations in 2020 and still cast a pall over 2021. And while the disease is far from contained, Americans clearly plan to travel. 

SEE MORE The 10 Best Stocks for a Bear Market AAA estimates that 39.2 million travelers will fly or drive this Memorial Day weekend ... still down from 2019's 42.8 million people who either booked flights or drove at least 50 miles to a destination, but up from last year's 36.2 million. That's naturally expected to keep upward pressure on gas prices, which have shot 40% higher from the start of 2022 alone.

But one thing that stays the same, year after year? Investors are getting a long weekend. Both the stock market and the bond market will be closed on May 30 in observation of Memorial Day. Also, the bond market will close early May 27, the Friday before Memorial Day.

Regular trading in stocks and bonds resumes on Tuesday, May 31.
