Dollar Tree withdraws guidance amid coronavirus-related uncertainty heading into peak Easter shopping season
Dollar Tree Inc. said Tuesday that it is withdrawing its fiscal first-quarter and full-year outlook as the discount retailer heads into peak Easter shopping season beneath a cloud of uncertainty. Shares tumbled 3.6% in Tuesday premarket trading. Same-store sales trends soared through March 29, with the namesake chain up 7.1% and Family Dollar up 14.4%. However trends have "moderated," the company said, with same-store sales at Family Dollar up 8.8% for the seven days ending March 29 and Dollar Tree down 19.4% for the period. Food and household consumable sales remain strong, however the company's ability to restock items in high demand, weaker-than-expected sales in discretionary categories and the impact of the coronavirus on the Easter selling season raise questions. There were also higher first-quarter costs associated with pay and benefits, and other measures tied to the pandemic response. And there are concerns about gross margins due to the merchandise mix. As of March 30, Dollar Tree has $1.9 billion in cash and investments, including $750 million drawn down from its $1.25 billion revolving credit line. The company plans to pay $250 million due in April. All remodels and installations have been halted until April 27. The company doesn't expect to repurchase shares in the near-term. It is scheduled to report fiscal first-quarter earnings on May 28. Dollar Tree stock is down 15.1% for the year to date while the S&P 500 index has sunk 18.7% for the period.

Trump and Putin Are All Talk on Oil Price Plunge
Dividends are periodic payments a company makes to shareholders out of the profits it generates, provided it has a dividend policy. They assure a stable, steady stream of returns to shareholders -- unlike capital gains, which are subject to fluctuations triggered by company-specific and extraneous factors.The coronavirus pandemic and its impact on companies has put this steady stream of income at risk.Unable to cough up cash to meet dividend payments at a time when businesses are reeling to keep operations going, several companies have announced suspension of dividends or pauses of stock buybacks.Dividends In Value Vs. Growth Investing To compare the returns of a stock, a metric called dividend yield is used. Dividend yield is the amount of dividend paid by a company for a year, divided by its current stock price and expressed in percentage terms.Value stocks -- stocks that are trading at a lower price relative to their fundamentals -- invariably have a higher dividend yield. Most value stocks belong to mature companies that can afford to pay dividends due to their strong cash flows.Unlike value stocks, growth stocks are mostly up-and-coming companies that do not have the luxury of steady cash flows to fund dividend payouts. Even if their cash flows support payouts, they would often rather invest in growth opportunities than on dividends. Investors in these companies rely on capital gains or share price appreciation to realize returns.Due to the high P/E ratios of these companies, their dividend payouts tend to be lower.See also: 8 Best Investment Strategies During A Recession D

Shell Sees Oil Sales Volume, Margins Stable in First Quarter
(Bloomberg) -- Royal Dutch Shell Plc said it doesn't expect the coronavirus to have a significant effect on overall demand for its oil products in the first quarter.While the company warned that the pandemic was creating major uncertainties around oil prices and boosting volatility, it experienced a "relatively minor" impact in the first two months of the year and expects sales volumes and margins for the quarter to be relatively unscathed."Marketing margins in the first quarter are expected to remain strong, as the impact on demand from COVID-19 is not expected to be significant at the Shell group level," the company said in a statement.Oil-products sales volumes are seen at 6 million to 7 million barrels a day for the period, compared with 6.5 million barrels a day reported a year earlier. First-quarter upstream oil and gas production is estimated at 2.65 million to 2.72 million barrels of oil equivalent a day, with margins affected by the "weak environment," Shell said.Shell's trading update shows that the impact of the coronavirus on oil demand only really accelerated in March, meaning the first quarter will probably be "materially better" than subsequent earnings periods this year, RBC Capital Markets said in a note.The company's B shares rose as much as 5% to 1325.2 pence as of 8:14 a.m. in London.Survival MeasuresMajor oil companies have already taken big steps to adapt to the massive economic impact of the deadly pandemic.

Amarin's stock plummets on heavy volume after court rules in favor of makers of generic Vascepa
Shares of Amarin Corp. PLC took a 69% dive on heavy volume in premarket trading Tuesday, after drug maker announced a disappointing court ruling in its patent litigation against two generic companies regarding Vascepa, its Food and Drug Administration-approved treatment of cardiovascular disease. Trading volume ballooned to over 10 million shares ahead of the open, which is already more than the full-day average of 9.6 million shares. Amarin said late Monday that the U.S. Distric Court for the Distric of Nevada ruled in favor of the generic companies. "Amarin strongly disagrees with the ruling and will vigorously pursue all available remedies, including an appeal of the Court's decision and a preliminary injunction pending appeal to, if an ANDA is approved by FDA, prevent launch of generic versions of VASCEPA in the United States," said Cief Executive John Thero. Stifel Nicolaus analyst Derek Archila reiterated his hold rating but slashed his stock price target to $8 from $24, saying he believes the court ruling will be difficult to overturn on appeal. "The negative IP ruling is a serious blow for [Amarin], and we would not be buying shares here given the uncertainty the decision has created around the future of Vascepa sales and, more importantly, [Amarin's] near-to-medium term cash runway," Arichila wrote in a note to clients. Through Monday, Amarin's stock had declined 36.7% over the past three months while the S&P 500 had lost 18.7%.
