Our Two Least Performing Stocks:

The main reason(s) for the decline in OXY: It was basically a correction after the surge in the last week.

The main reason(s) for the decline in COP: Hawkish comments and the decline in oil prices paved the way for its bad performance (like the other commodities and the energy sector as can be seen above) this week.


TIL: What is Stagnation?

Stagnation is a lengthy period during which it is limited or no progress in an economy, often indicated by extended periods of high unemployment. When the gross domestic product (GDP) shows a growth rate of less than 2-3% annually, it is considered stagnation. Stagnation can manifest at the macroeconomic level or within specific businesses or industries. The condition of stagnation could be either a temporary state resulting from a recession in growth, a short-term economic disruption, or a component of a long-term structural issue with the economy.
