Watch out below as Tesla breaks key support, MKM analyst says

“Any time you have major support that breaks, the next key is you have to look for where’s the next downside level,” O’Hara said Thursday on CNBC’s “Trading Nation. ” “We see some support at $215, but there’s really not major support until $185, so that’s some big downside right here.” “We think the downside risks far outweigh any sort of oversold bounce because, again, broken support turns to new resistance.

Watch out below as Tesla breaks key support, MKM analyst says

Tesla is swerving lower again Friday.

Its stock is falling and now down 8% this week after a third fatal crash involving its autopilot function embroiled the electric carmaker in bad press. Those losses added to a 34% slump in 2019, putting it on track to post its worst annual drop ever.

Wall Street is turning on the stock too. Just this month, Tesla has received 12 analyst price target cuts. Evercore, for example, reduced its price target to $200 “on valuation and lower delivery estimates across all models.”

MKM Partners’ JC O’Hara agrees that the stock could have further to fall.

“Any time you have major support that breaks, the next key is you have to look for where’s the next downside level,” O’Hara said Thursday on CNBC’s “Trading Nation. ” “We see some support at $215, but there’s really not major support until $185, so that’s some big downside right here.”

Tesla is less than 2% from that $215 level. A decline to $185 would mark a 15% drop.

“We think the downside risks far outweigh any sort of oversold bounce because, again, broken support turns to new resistance. So we have major resistance at $250 now, with the next support on the downside at $185,” said O’Hara. “This is a chart we just want to avoid altogether.”

Tesla broke and closed below $250 in late April for the first time since March 2017.

John Petrides of Point View Wealth Management says while the stock is coming down from “ridiculously high” levels, operational headwinds remain for the company.

“The company has been unable to show sustainable cash-flow generation. They have balance-sheet issues. You have board members that are not seeking reelection, key members of the team are leaving, [CEO] Elon Musk is a wildcard, competition in the e-car market is coming on board,” he said during the same segment. “The stock and the company is a mess, and I think this stock could fall lower.”

Tesla had not responded to a request for comment by time of publication.

Haven, the new health venture led by Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JP Morgan, just lost its No. 2 exec

Haven, the health joint venture formed last year by Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and J.P. Morgan, has lost Chief Operating Officer Jack Stoddard just nine months into his new role.

Stoddard, who was most recently general manger for digital health at Comcast, confirmed to CNBC on Thursday that he departed Haven for personal reasons, including the length of his commute from his home in Philadelphia to Haven’s headquarters in Boston. Stoddard was Haven’s second hire in 2018, following Atul Gawande, the renowned author and surgeon who was named CEO last June.

“Jack played an important role in the early stages of Haven, but we understand his decision to leave the company for family reasons,” a spokesperson from Haven said in a statement. “We want to thank him for all of his contributions.”

Stoddard officially ended his tenure at Haven last week, and no replacement has been named.

Losing such a key executive so early in the process could be a big setback for Haven, which has laid out an ambitious effort to bring down health-care costs, starting with the combined 1.2 million employees at the three companies. The entity, which is set up as a nonprofit, was named Haven in March and at the time had about a dozen people.

Other key executives include Chief Technology Officer Serkan Kutan, formerly of ZocDoc, and Dana Gelb Safran, who Haven hired from Blue Cross Blue Shield in Massachusetts to run analytics projects.

Prior to joining Haven, Stoddard worked at Accolade, a health-technology start-up, and at Comcast, the parent company of CNBC. He said the the frequent travel to Boston — five hours by car and around 90 minutes by air each way — was taking him away from his family.

“I wish Atul and the group the best,” he said.

Google replaces its Bluetooth security keys because they can be accessed by nearby attackers

Google found a security issue that could give an attacker access to a users’ device based on a tool meant to keep it secure, the company disclosed Wednesday. The Titan Security Key is meant to provide an additional layer of protection for users hoping to prevent their accounts from being taken over by phishing attacks. While Google said the issue does not interfere with the key’s ability to protect users from a remote phishing attack, it still reveals a significant gap in the device’s security.

Google replaces its Bluetooth security keys because they can be accessed by nearby attackers

Google found a security issue that could give an attacker access to a users’ device based on a tool meant to keep it secure, the company disclosed Wednesday.

Google is offering free replacements of its Bluetooth Low Energy Titan Security Keys after it found that anyone within about 30 feet could communicate with the key and its paired device while a user tried to activate the key or pair their devices.

The Titan Security Key is meant to provide an additional layer of protection for users hoping to prevent their accounts from being taken over by phishing attacks. While Google said the issue does not interfere with the key’s ability to protect users from a remote phishing attack, it still reveals a significant gap in the device’s security.

The flaw could undermine Google’s recent messaging around privacy and security, which has become a hot issue in Silicon Valley. Google CEO Sundar Pichai penned a New York Times op-ed earlier this month advocating for the democratization of privacy after unveiling a host of new privacy features at Google’s developer conference.

Google recommended continuing to use the affected keys until their replacement arrives. As an extra precaution, users should use the keys when they aren’t near other people who may try to gain access to their devices, then immediately unpair the key after signing on, Google said. However, iOS users who have updated the version 12.3 will not be able to sign into any accounts linked to the key until they receive a replacement, according to Google. The company advised staying logged onto accounts on iOS devices until the new replacement arrives.

Google said that only BLE versions of the keys are affected. Devices with a “T1” or “T2” on the back are eligible for the free replacement by visiting google.com/replacemykey.

Want to invest in esports? A top team owner says there's one key to the whole thing

As esports becomes a bigger buzzword among Wall Street analysts, a top team owner says potential investors should focus on one key factor: Who builds community best?

Sponsorships and brand deals are projected to bring in more than a third of total revenue for the industry this year, according to research firm Newzoo. But Steve Arhancet, owner and CEO of Team Liquid, an esports organization whose parent group includes the likes of former Sony executive Peter Guber and Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis, says the main driver of revenue in esports will ultimately come from businesses that are centered around the fan.

“That is what will eventually drive revenues,” he told CNBC. “You want to be able to invest in [companies and brands] that can generate substantial revenue in [the] future, so ask yourself: Who owns that fan relationship?”

“You can say that the gamer is playing the game and they have developed [a] relationship with the game, but I would argue that the teams have the biggest arsenal to create that relationship and drive revenue per capita,” he argued.

Esports enthusiasts, which Newzoo uses to define a person who watches professional esports content more than once a month, are set to bring in around $5.45 in revenue per capita this year, according to the research firm. This represents an increase of about 9% from 2018. This increase in revenue per capita is also taking place during a year where the total esports audience is projected to grow to almost 454 million, which Newzoo notes is a year-on-year growth of 15% based on their numbers.

About 201 million of those audience members are projected to be the esports enthusiasts that Newzoo has identified.

3M to cut 2,000 jobs globally, slashes its 2019 profit outlook

Here’s what investors need to know about 3M’s earnings miss 1 Hour Ago | 03:25

U.S. manufacturing conglomerate 3M said Thursday it will lay off 2,000 workers globally and reported a lower-than-expected quarterly profit. It also cut its 2019 earnings forecast due to worsening performance in key markets.

The job cuts, part of moves to restructure its businesses into four operating units from five, would result in an estimated annual pretax savings range of $225 million to $250 million, with $100 million in the remainder of 2019, the company said.

Shares of 3M tumbled more than 8% in premarket trading following the announcement.

Here are the numbers 3M reported:

Earnings per share: $2.23, adjusted vs. $2.49 expected in a Refinitiv survey of analysts

Revenue: $7.863 billion vs. $8.025 billion expected in the survey

The first-quarter results were hurt by a litigation-related pretax charge of $548 million, or 72 cents per share.

The company, whose diverse products include adhesive tapes and air filters, said it now expects 2019 adjusted earnings between $9.25 and $9.75 a share, down from its prior forecast of $10.45 to $10.90 per share.

“The first quarter was a disappointing start to the year for 3M,” CEO Mike Roman said in a statement. “We continued to face slowing conditions in key end markets which impacted both organic growth and margins, and our operational execution also fell short of the expectations we have for ourselves.”

—Reuters contributed to this report.

Motion pictures can appear on a streaming service on or after the day of their theatrical run and still be eligible for an award.

“We support the theatrical experience as integral to the art of motion pictures, and this weighed heavily in our discussions,” the academy’s President John Bailey said in a statement late Tuesday.

“Our rules currently require theatrical exhibition, and also allow for a broad selection of films to be submitted for Oscars consideration. We plan to further study the profound changes occurring in our industry and continue discussions with our members about these issues.”

Joe Biden tells key supporters he is running for president as he lines up fundraising help

As he geared up to announce his expected run for the White House in 2020, former Vice President Joe Biden was working the phones as recently as a few days ago to line up fundraising support.

One of his lead backers, former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, said he recently received a call from Comcast executive David Cohen about a potential Biden fundraiser at his home in Philadelphia. Then came the message from Biden himself late last week.

Biden told Rendell “he was going to do it [run for president]. He was going to do it with all his energy and heart. He thinks it’s the right thing to do and the right thing for the country,” Rendell told CNBC in an interview.

Biden will announce his candidacy through an online video Thursday and hold his first public event as a candidate Monday in Pittsburgh, according to a Biden aide who declined to be named. Biden represented Delaware in the U.S. Senate for more than three decades, but he routinely highlights his roots in the blue-collar Pennsylvania city of Scranton.
