    Italy's industry ministry is open to discussions with any investor interested in the rescue of troubled carrier Alitalia, including infrastructure group Atlantia, two sources with knowledge of the matter said on Friday. The ministry is leading talks between the administrators managing the loss-making Alitalia and state-owned railway group Ferrovie dello Stato, which is trying to set up a consortium to buy the carrier. An involvement of Atlantia could be a turning point in the rescue effort led by Ferrovie, but sources have previously said the plan still lacked a political green light.

    4 Semiconductor Stocks to Sell

    Global equities are under pressure on Friday as traders worry about the fallout from the attack on two energy tankers in the Persian Gulf as well as dismal economic data out of China, where industrial output growth slowed to a 17-year low.Semiconductor stocks are getting hit hard, with the pressure beginning over in Europe with names like Infineon, AMS and STMicroelectronics (NYSE:STM) feeling the hurt after Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) cut forward guidance and warned of a demand slowdown due to a tech ban resulting from U.S.-China trade tensions.All eyes are now turning towards the Federal Reserve's next policy announcement on June 19, with hopes high that officials heed the message of the futures market and prepare for interest rate cuts later this year. The promise of easier credit could help juice the market higher as the economic data worldwide becomes more and more disappointing.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThe specter for disappointment is extremely high, however, with history reminding us that the majority of prior Fed interest rate cuts come as a recession is already in flight. If so, the selling could well intensify, led by the makers of the silicon "raw materials" of our modern economy: Semiconductors. * 10 Stocks to Buy That Wall Street Expects to Soar for the Rest of 2019 Here are four stocks in the industry to consider selling: Semiconductor Stocks: Intel (INTC)Intel (NASADQ:INTC) shares continue to languish below their 200-day moving average, marking a 22% decline from the late-April high a continuing a long sideways range going back to late 2017. A breakdown below critical support near the $42-a-share level would result in a likely decline back to the 2016-2017 trading range near $34, which would be worth a loss of more than 25% from here.The company will next report results on July 25 after the close. Analysts are looking for earnings of 90 cents per share on revenues of $15.6 billion. When the company last reported on April 25, earnings of 89 cents per share beat estimates by two cents. Nvidia (NVDA)Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) shares are simply unable to get up off the mat, as the onetime momentum sweetheart languishes near its late December lows and remains well below its 50-day and 200-day moving averages. A slowdown in GPU sales, a loss to AMD (NASDAQ:AMD) on upcoming gaming console refreshes from Sony (NYSE:SNE) and Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), and a popping of the bitcoin bubble have all contributed to the downturn. * 7 High-Quality Cheap Stocks to Buy With $10 The company will next report results on Aug. 15 after the close. Analysts are looking for earnings of $1.14 per share on revenues of $2.6 billion. When the company last reported on May 16, earnings of 88 cents per share beat estimates by seven cents on a 31% drop in revenues. Texas Instruments (TXN)Shares of Texas Instruments (NASDAQ:TXN) are rolling down what looks like the right shoulder of a nasty-looking head-and-shoulders reversal pattern bounced by a neckline that coincides with its 200-day moving average. A breakdown here would trace down to a decline back to its late-December lows, worth a loss of roughly 15% from here. Earlier in the month, analysts at Cascend Research noted that demand for power chips in the industrial, automotive, and consumer products area was weakening at a 18%-plus pace year-over-year. This was the worst result in eight years and will weigh on TXN stock's top line results.The company will next report results on July 23 after the close. Analysts are looking for earnings of $1.22 per share on revenues of $3.6 billion. When the company last reported on April 23, earnings of $1.26 beat estimates by nine cents on a 5.1% decline in revenues. Broadcom (AVGO)Broadcom shares are down sharply, nearly 7% as I write this, testing their 200-day moving average average. Management cut its forward guidance as part of its quarterly earnings report, warning that fiscal 2019 results would be dampened by waning demand and ongoing trade tensions. There are a few silver linings, from 10% expected bump in content growth thanks to the 5G wireless rollout to module wins in the upcoming Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone 11. * 7 Stocks to Buy for the Coming Recession The company will next report results on Sept. 12 after the close. When the company last reported on June 13, earnings of $5.21 beat estimates by three cents on a 10% rise in revenues.As of this writing, William Roth did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    UPDATE 1-Italy's Salvini prefers transportation group as Alitalia partner

    Italy's Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini said on Friday an infrastructure or transportation group would be his preferred partner for troubled carrier Alitalia. Salvini's comments put pressure on Industry Minister Luigi Di Maio, who is also the leader of the 5-Star Movement and has been handling the Alitalia crisis since the coalition government took office last year. Di Maio has already had to postpone the deadline for the rescue of the carrier three times and the latest extension is due to expire on Saturday with every expectation it will have to be prolonged yet again as the search for a solution continues.

    Gloomy Stress Test Can Only Slow U.S. Banks' Buyback Train

    After two years of surging payouts as regulators relaxed the reins on the biggest lenders, those firms are likely to boost dividends and buybacks by just 3% following this year’s stress test, according to analysts’ estimates compiled by Bloomberg. The Federal Reserve will release results of the first part of its annual review next week. Payouts to shareholders started to ramp up in 2016 after the Fed was satisfied that the largest lenders had adequately beefed up loss buffers and improved risk management.

    Commercial aerospace stocks fall after SunTrust turns bearish, citing 'unprecedented' 737 Max unknowns

    Shares of a handful of commercial aerospace original equipment manufacturers sank Friday, after SunTrust RH analyst Mike Ciarmoli turned bearish on the sector, citing ongoing uncertainties related to the grounding of Boeing Co.'s 737 Max jets. Along with cutting the sector rating to negative, shares of Astronics Corp. slumped 7.1%, Barnes Group Inc. slid 3.8% and Spirit AeroSystems Holdings Inc. lost 4.0%, after Ciarmoli downgraded those companies to sell from hold; and shares of Ducommun Inc. dropped 5.6% and Woodward Inc. shed 2.3% after Ciarmoli downgraded them to hold from buy. "Given the current industry unknowns tied to 737, and our expectation that 2019/2020 outlooks and Street estimates need to be lowered, we cannot continue to advise investors to buy, or in some cases, own names in our coverage universe during this uncertain and unprecedented time...," Ciarmoli wrote in a note to clients. " We would note, however, that this is a short-term tactical downgrade which we will keep in place until more clarity around the MAX and supplier implications become more well known." The S&P Aerospace & Defense Select Index has rallied 27% year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 15%.

    Friday’s Vital Data: Lululemon, Disney and Snap

    U.S. stock futures are trading slightly lower ahead of the bell. In early morning trading, futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average are down 0.16%, and S&P 500 futures are lower by 0.23%. Nasdaq-100 futures have shed 0.63%.In the options pits, fear officially left the building, at least if put volumes are any indication. They sank to their lowest levels in recent memory. By day's end, only 12.7 million puts changed hands compared to 15.1 million calls.The ebb in put demand was felt at the CBOE as well, with the single-session equity put/call volume ratio slamming back down to 0.63. That places it in the center of the past few months range. Meanwhile, the 10-day moving average held its ground at 0.66.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsOptions traders targeted the following three stocks: Lululemon (NASDAQ:LULU), Disney (NYSE:DIS) and Snap (NYSE:SNAP).Let's take a closer look: Lululemon (LULU)A strong earnings report sent Lululemon stock to record highs on Thursday. For the first quarter, the athletic apparel company earned 74 cents per share on revenue of $782 million. Analysts were expecting earnings of 70 cents on $755 million revenue. * 10 Stocks to Buy That Wall Street Expects to Soar for the Rest of 2019 LULU also raised its full-year guidance to between $3.73 and $3.77 billion in revenue and earnings per share between $4.51 and $4.58.The stock opened 6.5% higher, but sellers erased the bulk of the gains by day's end. That said, Lululemon stock still sits above all its moving averages, and the long-term trend remains healthy as a horse. Wait for a close above the $180 resistance to signal buyers are ready to sustain a breakout.On the options trading front, calls won the day by a modest margin. Total activity rocketed to 744% of the average daily volume, with 128,810 contracts traded. Calls claimed 56% of the tally.The post-earnings volatility crush was on full display, sending implied volatility into the basement. At 29%, it now sits at the 19th percentile of its one-year range. Premiums are now pricing in daily moves of $3.16, or 1.8%. Disney (DIS)The mouse house was rockin' Thursday after receiving some love from Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne. By day's end, DIS stock rose 4% bringing it within a whisker of a new record high.In the research piece, the bank raised their price target for DIS shares from $135 to $160 citing a lofty forecast for the number of subscribers buying into Hulu, Disney Plus, and ESPN Plus. By 2024, the firm thinks the number could rise as high as 130 million, which should deliver a substantial boost to Disney's bottom line.On the options trading front, traders came after calls with a vengeance. Activity swelled to 516% of the average daily volume, with 372,538 total contracts traded. 85% of the trading came from call options alone.The uptick in demand drove implied volatility higher to 29%, placing it at the 29th percentile of its one-year range. Premiums are now baking in daily moves of $2, or 1.4%. Snap (SNAP)The news was light for Snap shares, but that didn't keep traders from gobbling up call options on the surging social media stock. The 2019 recovery accelerated this month with a rousing two-month breakout that has lifted SNAP stock just shy of a new 52-week high.Volume patterns are supporting the bulls' campaign with multiple accumulation days cropping up. The past five days have seen tight consolidation form near resistance. The lack of any giveback after last week's rip-roaring rally is impressive and reveals the continued strength of buying beneath the surface.On the options trading front, calls proved far more popular than puts. Total activity grew to 155% of the average daily volume, with 143,455 contracts traded. Calls accounted for 71% of the session's sum.Uncertainty has dwindled dramatically with implied volatility now down to 48%. That places it at the 13th percentile of its one-year range, suggesting premiums are quite cheap. The expected daily move is now 43 cents, or 3%.As of this writing, Tyler Craig held bullish options positions in DIS.
