Stocks skid lower to end worst week since May amid disappointment on Fed rate-cut plans
U.S. stocks finished firmly lower Friday, capping the worst week for equities since the end of May, as doubts about the magnitude of an expected rate cut by the Federal Reserve softened the buying mood on Wall Street. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed down 0.3% at 27,154, off 69 points, the S&P 500 index retreated 0.6% at 2,977, while the Nasdaq Composite Index pulled back 0.7% to end at 8,146. For the week, the Dow booked a 0.7% decline, the S&P 500 finished with a weekly slide of 1.2%, while the Nasdaq logged a 1.2% drop over the five-session period. For all three stock gauges it was the steepest weekly decline since the period ended May 31, according to FactSet data. Reports of Iran seizing oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz added to uncertainty on the day and Federal Reserve officials attempted moderate comments made by NY Fed boss John Williams, whose comments investors appeared to interpret as implying a 50-basis-point rate cut at the end of this month.

Chesapeake's stock bounces off 20-yr. low as oil prices gain
Shares of Chesapeake Energy Corp. surged 3.4% in afternoon trading Friday, to bounce off a 20-year closing low, as a a rebound in oil prices helped provide a boost. The oil and gas company's stock had tumbled 7.1% on Thursday, and sank 18% amid a four-session losing streak, to the lowest close ($1.58) since April 1999. On Friday, crude oil futures rose 0.7% to snap a four-session losing streak, helped by reports that Iran seized a U.K.-flagged ship in the Gulf of Oman. The correlation coefficient between Chesapeake's stock and crude oil futures, over the past two decades, has been 0.78, in which 1.00 would mean they move perfectly in sync. In comparison, Chesapeake's correlation with the S&P 500 is negative 0.28.

Boeing's stock 'relief' rally is helping keep the Dow positive
Shares of Boeing Co. surged 3.9% in morning trading Friday, enough to keep the Dow Jones Industrial Average in positive territory, in the wake of the aerospace giant's announcement of a 737 Max-related charge of $5.6 billion. The stock's price gain of $13.99 was adding about 95 points to the Dow's price, which was up 89 points. J.P. Morgan analyst Seth Seifman said despite the larger-than-expected charge, he believes Boeing's decision to keep 737 Max production at 42 per month and its plan to boost production to 57 per month in 2020 "is likely a relief" for investors.
