Goldman sees 'no earnings growth' for S&P 500 companies this year
Goldman Sachs slashed its outlook for S&P 500 corporate earnings in 2020, and now expects "no earnings growth" this year, as fears over the potential negative impacts of the coronavirus outbreak intensifies. Portfolio strategist David Kostin now expects aggregate S&P 500 earnings per share of $165, down from his previous estimate of $174, which represents 0% growth, and he lowered his 2021 outlook to $175 from $183 to now represent a 6% rise. "Our reduced forecasts reflect the severe decline in Chinese economic activity in 1Q, lower end-demand for U.S. exporters, supply chain disruption, a slowdown in US economic activity and elevated uncertainty," Kostin wrote in a note to clients. The S&P 500 has lost 3.4% so far in February through Wednesday, and futures are shedding 1.6% ahead of the open.

Oil Rout Deepens Past 13-Month Low on Mounting Pandemic Fears
(Bloomberg) -- Oil continued to plunge after closing at a 13-month low as more new coronavirus cases were reported outside of China, adding to fears the world is on the brink of a pandemic that will stunt economic growth.Futures fell as much as 5.3% in New York on Thursday and headed for the worst weekly loss since 2014. Global stocks also tumbled, with the six-day slide pushing the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average indexes down by 10% from all-time highs set this month.Germany said the virus was likely at the start of an epidemic and Saudi Arabia halted religious visits. In addition to crude, diesel has also plummeted, with heating oil futures in New York trading at the lowest since July 2017."We've dived deeper into this well," said Bob Iaccino, market strategist at Path Trading Partners. "Until the virus outbreak gets under control it's going to be the driver of everything. We still don't know the full effect on demand but it's going to be terrible."U.S. data that showed a smaller-than-forecast increase in crude stockpiles failed to arrest the slide. Oil has fallen more than 24% this year as the virus hit a market already awash with supply. Investors are assessing whether the Organization for Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies will be able to agree on deeper output cuts at a meeting in Vienna next week.Oil could fall below $30 a barrel if OPEC fails to agree a production cut, Standard Chartered Plc analysts Emily Ashford and Paul Horsnell wrote in a report.

The S&P 500 index was most recently off 9.3%, which would also represent its sharpest weekly slump since a 18.2% decline in October of 2008. The Nasdaq Composite Index Nasdaq was off 9.4% for the week and set for its sharpest weekly skid since 2008. All three benchmarks fell into correction territory early Thursday, defined as a drop from a recent peak of at least 10%, but not greater than 20%.

Nasdaq's selloff into correction territory comes despite panic-like dip buying behavior
The Nasdaq Composite dropped 2.9% in morning trading, which puts the index in correction territory, but market internals suggest investors who are buying on dips are much more aggressive than those selling. The Arms Index, a volume-weighted breadth indicator, has tumbled to 0.289. That is well below the 0.5000 level, which many believe normally depicts panic-buying behavior. The number of declining stocks on the Nasdaq are outnumbering advancers 10.1 to 1 while volume in declining stocks leads advancing volume by just 3.0 to 1. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq Composite has now lost 11.1% since closing at a record 9,817.18 on Feb. 19, amid growing fears over the potential negative impact from the coronavirus outbreak. Many technicians believe a decline of 10% to up to 20% from a significant peak defines a correction, while a decline of 20% or more defines a bear market. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average tumbled 566 points, or 2.1%, and is now 10.7% below its Feb. 12 record close of 29,551.42, while the NYSE Arms Index is up to
