Cannabis stocks surge as Biden overhauls U.S. marijuana policy (1 min read)

US-listed cannabis companies surged on Thursday after President Biden changed the policy on marijuana, pardoning all prior federal offenses of the drug’s possessions. Federal officials are reviewing how marijuana should be classified under this new policy. Tilery brands and Canopy Growth, two of the most well-known cannabis stocks, jumped 22% and 31% respectively after the news. Marijuana related companies have surged in 2018 after Canada legalized the drug but have since reversed as the industry failed to expand as quickly as investors anticipated.
Oil prices rise 1% on cuts to OPEC+ output targets (3 min read)

Since OPEC+ announced the cut in oil productions on Tuesday, oil prices went up by about 1%, the highest in three weeks. The output came as the Fed and other central banks are raising interest rates to combat inflations. Higher oil prices will likely reduce demand in the current environment which in turn could put a limit on the price increase. The US is also assessing whether to release more supplies from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and continues to look for other ways to reduce market control of OPEC and its allies.

This layoff marks the completion of the vast majority of their restructuring plan. Peloton now has less than half the employees it had in 2021.

Mutual Funds With Illiquid Assets Pose Risk to Financial System (3 min read)

Illiquid assets can take days to trade and mutual funds are priced at the end of the trading day. This creates a liquidity mismatch between the trading price and the underlying holdings. This mismatch in prices can force mutual funds to sell their assets more rapidly during times of high redemptions which amplifies the drop in values in those assets. Some mutual funds were forced to sell their holdings during the pandemic after experiencing only 5% outflows. They may be further tested again now as rates are rising and high economic uncertainty spreads.
