Asian stocks pulled higher by Wall Street jobs rally but China caution prevails
Asian stocks edged up on Monday, catching some of Wall Street's momentum after surprisingly strong U.S. jobs data although regional gains were capped by concerns about China's economy due to the prolonged Sino-U.S. trade war. Japan's benchmark Nikkei advanced 0.3% while MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan gained 0.3%, with Australian stocks and South Korea's Kospi up 0.2% and 0.6%, respectively. The modest Asian gains compared with Wall Street, which rose to near record highs on Friday on a strong jobs report and some sign of optimism about U.S.-China trade talks, with the benchmark S&P 500 closing within 0.2% of its peak set in late November.

3 Monster Growth Stocks That Make Great Picks for 2020
What's always in style on the Street? Growth. Investors are constantly window shopping on Wall Street to pinpoint the names that represent the crème-de-la-crème when it comes to the ability to post long-term gains. This makes sense as growth leads to profits, which in turn can lift share prices.However, given the market's record breaking performance in 2019, it isn't always easy to spot the stocks poised to climb higher and yield handsome returns in the years to come. That's where the analysts can help. Using the Stock Screener tool from TipRanks, we were able to zero in on 3 stocks with stellar long-term growth narratives backed by Wall Street analysts. We're talking about enough support to earn a "Strong Buy" consensus rating here. If that wasn't enticing enough, all of the names boast at least 20% upside potential from the current share price. Here's the scoop. Alphatec Holdings, Inc. (ATEC)This med tech company has disrupted the market with its innovative products for the surgical treatment of spine disorders. After skyrocketing 193% since the start of the calendar year, analysts are betting that ATEC can continue its impressive run in 2020.Part of the bullish sentiment surrounding the company is due to its strong Q3 performance that sped past the revenue consensus estimate. ATEC reported that quarterly revenue hit $29.2 million, surpassing the $26.4 million estimate. Management pointed to the domestic strategic distribution segment, which was up 52% in the quarter, as the driver here. Not to mention full year revenue gui

Big U.S. banks' reluctance to lend may have caused repo-market shock: BIS
An unwillingness among the four leading U.S. banks to lend cash, combined with a surge in demand from hedge funds for secured funding, could explain the spike in U.S. money market rates and the sudden stress in the repo market beginning in September, the Bank for International Settlements said in a report dated Monday. Cash available to banks for short-term needs, also known as the repo market, all but disappeared in September, and some rates shot as high as 10% on certain overnight loans, which forced the Federal Reserve to make an emergency injection of billions of dollars for the first time since the global financial crisis roughly a decade ago. The major banks were not named in the report. The researchers conceded that the exact cause of the sudden stress is unknown but they reasoned that the factors could have ranged from large withdrawals for quarterly tax payments to the knock-on effects of sizeable trades in U.S. Treasuries. The BIS analysts emphasized that a growing over-reliance on the biggest U.S. banks to keep the repo market functioning may have been the leading factor. The Fed's ongoing efforts to shore up the short-term repo lending markets have begun to rattle some market experts, as interventions have stretched to a third month.

Officials have not given figures for the oil price and export volumes used in the calculations, although the IMF has indicated Iran would need oil prices to be triple current levels to balance its budget as its crude exports have plunged. The United States reimposed sanctions with the aim of driving down Iranian crude sales, the Islamic Republic's main source of revenues, after Washington withdrew last year from a nuclear pact between world powers and Iran.

Nike shares jump premarket after Goldman upgrades to buy, says China is key growth driver
Nike Inc. shares rose 2.3% in premarket trade Thursday, after Goldman Sachs upgraded the stock to buy from neutral and added it to its Conviction List. "We believe Nike is a unique asset, where a strong brand combined with a disruptive and innovative strategy are positioning the business for multi year growth, expansion in margins, and higher returns on invested capital," analysts led by Alexandra Walvis wrote in a note to clients. A bottom up analysis of the company suggests China is a key growth driver for the sporting goods company and Goldman is expecting that Nike can grow revenue in China at a high teens pace. Direct-to-consumer is the biggest driver, reaching 50% of the region's revenue by 2023, according to Goldman estimates. The company can also expect support from growing purchasing power among younger consumers where the brand is clearly resonating. "Evidence of building pricing power, signs of operating leverage, accelerating shift to differentiated retail, sharply scaling app ecosystem, and a constructive global athletic growth backdrop," are the key motivations for the upgrade, said the note. Nike shares have gained 26% in 2019, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average , which counts Nike as a member, has gained 18.5% and the S&P 500 has gained 24%.

Electric cars should stream TV when they are fast-charging
Topic: Going GreenThe question every electric car buyer asks is how convenient charging will be, and how much will the range limit my travel - known as "range anxiety."

Deserted outlet malls aren't really exciting places to spend some quality time

Once cars get over about 200 miles of range, they tend to eliminate most such anxiety for drives in an urban area. Fast charging, such as Tesla superchargers, fills in the gap for road trips or days with extremely high amounts of driving. In normal use, it's less work and time to plug the car in each night than it is to visit a gas station and fill up once or twice a week the way gasoline drivers do.

Supercharging still takes more time. People tend to spend at least 20 minutes, which can gain them about as much as 120 miles of extra range, though they often spend longer if not in a hurry or on a long trip. Here, it loses to the gasoline fill-up, in that the fill-up only takes about 3 minutes and you usually don't have to go very far out of your way for one, unless you are nuts about price. So people want an activity when supercharging. If it's meal time, there is usually somewhere to eat at the charging stations -- though sometimes the selection can be quite limited, and you usually want a fast meal, not a lingering sit-down restaurant. What shopping there is can be quite variable.

The answer for many is to stare a
