World Bank chief calls for broader scope of G20 debt freeze

WASHINGTON, July 13 (Reuters) – World Bank President David Malpass on Monday called for a broader approach to a debt relief initiative offered to the world’s poorest countries by the Group of 20 major economies, and underscored the need for private creditors to join in. More transparency was also needed to ease ongoing debt restructuring efforts and aid in reconciliation of debtor-creditor data, Malpass told Reuters in a statement after taking part in a meeting of Group of Seven finance ministers on the debt issue.

Morocco plans $624 mln aid package for RAM airlines

RABAT, July 13 (Reuters) – The Moroccan government plans a package of 6 billion dirhams ($624 million) in aid to state carrier Royal Air Maroc (RAM) to help it get through the pandemic crisis, Finance Minister Mohamed Benchaaboun said on Monday.

The aid, part of a reviewed 2020 budget, includes a state-guaranteed loan of 2.5 billion dirhams, a finance ministry source told Reuters without giving further details.

RAM has struggled with $5 million in daily losses caused by the pandemic and said recently it will cancel some routes between destinations, cut jobs and reduce fleet.

Naya Rivera: Body found in lake is missing Glee star’s, police say

A body found in a California lake is that of Glee star Naya Rivera, police said.

The 33-year-old went missing after renting a boat with her four-year-old son last Wednesday.

Josey Hollis Dorsey was discovered alone in the boat, asleep and wearing a life jacket.

He told investigators he and his mother went swimming and he got back on the boat, but “his mum never made it out of the water,” sheriff’s sergeant Kevin Donoghue said on Sunday.

A body found in Lake Piru was confirmed as Naya Rivera’s in a news conference this evening

Ten Thousand Day Traders an Hour Are Buying Tesla Shares

Robinhood users can’t get enough of Tesla Inc.

At one point Monday, there was a four-hour span in which Tesla stock was added to almost 40,000 Robinhood accounts, according to website Robintrack.net, which compiles data on the investing platform that’s much beloved by millennials.

The frenzy in interest means there are now roughly 447,000 users on the Robinhood app that hold shares of the electric-car maker in some form. That makes it the 11th-most popular stock on the platform, ahead of even Amazon.com Inc., which is held by 356,000 users.

It isn’t at all clear that day traders are the main driver for the nosebleed rally in Tesla shares over the past few weeks. Indeed, there are myriad other possibilities, from the potential reveal of a new battery technology, to short covering, to conjecture over the possibility for the stock’s addition to the S&P 500 Index.

But whatever the case, the shares have surged more than 60% in just the past 10 days. The stock jumped as much as 16% on Monday before erasing the bulk of that advance. As of 3:20 p.m. in New York, the stock was up 1.4%.

Of course, Tesla is just one company. But for those who like to track investor sentiment, particularly as a contrarian market indicator, this is a doozy.

Apple Market Cap Closes In on Saudi Aramco’s as No. 1 in World

Apple Inc. is getting close to overtaking Saudi Arabia’s state-owned oil company in market valuation, a milestone that would make the technology giant the world’s largest company by that measure.

Apple gained as much as 4.2% on Monday for a market capitalization above $1.70 trillion, trailing Saudi Aramco at about $1.78 trillion based on current exchange rates. In March, the gap between the two market values was more than $500 billion. Apple has rallied 32% this year on broad optimism about its businesses.

By comparison, Saudi Aramco’s market value has fallen 5.5% this year as the pandemic sapped global oil demand, prompting many producers to cut output.

PepsiCo sees surge in snacks as soft drink sales fizzle

PepsiCo provided an upbeat start to the second-quarter earnings season on Monday.

While revenue at the food and drink giant’s North American beverage division dropped 6.6 percent, to $4.97 billion, thanks in part to restaurant shutdowns, the company saw a positive 6.6 percent surge in its snack division as consumers sheltering in place devoured more of its salty Fritos and Cheetos snacks.

In late-afternoon trading, the stock price climbed 1.3 percent higher, to $136.22.
