Boeing rises after management changes announced

Boeing advanced more than 2 percent in premarket trading after the planemaker announced that Chief Executive Officer Dave Calhoun will step down.

Calhoun will step down at the end of 2024, part of a sweeping leadership shakeup at the beleaguered airline. Larry Kellner, chairman of the board, is resigning and will leave the board at the company’s annual meeting in May. Stan Diehl, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, has left effective immediately.

The moves come amid a period of scrutiny and a reputational crisis after a panel exploded on a Boeing jet in flight. Boeing shares tumble more than 27% in 2024

Market expansion is a myth, says Raymond James

Investors have been clamoring for an expansion in the market this year, but all the evidence so far points to that being a myth, according to Raymond James.

“As we show in the chart(s) of the week, this ‘expansion’ drumbeat is simply not matched by data. The S&P 500 continues to outperform the equal-weighted Russell 1000 (almost every week this year), which we’d argue is a textbook example of a ‘tight’ market,” the bank wrote.

Meanwhile, strategist Tavis McCourt noted that Nvidia is still doing better than 10 “AI Derivative” games every week in 2024.

“Again, no dramatic expansion,” he wrote.

Japan’s top exchange rate official says yen weakness ‘doesn’t reflect fundamentals’

The Japanese yen’s current weakness does not reflect its fundamentals, according to Japan’s top currency diplomat Masato Kanda, Reuters reported.

The yen has weakened steadily over the past two weeks, even as the Bank of Japan moved to raise interest rates and remove its yield curve control policy. The yen broke through the psychological level of 150 against the greenback, currently trading at 151.28.

Kanda told reporters that yen weakness based on speculative moves was having a negative effect on the economy, according to the Reuters report.

However, Kanda said he had no specific level of exchange in mind.
