Markets have well and truly changed direction from last year’s bullish trends. The downward shift has brought us a major selloff, and declines of 27% and more in the tech-heavy NASDAQ index. For investors, it’s a situation that requires a close watch on the markets, and clear eye for the opportunities that will pop out as conditions change. It’s also a situation in which investors can use expert advice. Jim Cramer, the well-known host of CNBC’s ‘Mad Money’ program, tells investors that when the

SEATTLE/WASHINGTON (Reuters) -U.S. air-safety regulators have told Boeing Co the documentation it submitted to win approval to resume 787 deliveries to airlines after a year is incomplete, two people familiar with the matter said. The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) identified a number of omissions in Boeing's documentation, submitted in late April, and has sent portions of it back to the planemaker, one of the people said. A second person said it was too early to say whether FAA concerns would lead to a new delay in resuming deliveries, which have been suspended for the past year due to production flaws.

For his fourth and final "Executive Decision" segment of Thursday's Mad Money program, host Jim Cramer talked to Sanjay Mehrotra, president and CEO at Micron Technology , the semiconductor maker that trades at just five times earnings. Mehrotra repeated that all of Micron's end markets remain very strong, and they're both diversified and secular growers. When asked about slowing cell phone sales in China, Mehrotra reminded investors that while user growth in smartphones is leveling off, the transition to 5G wireless means there are more, and more profitable, chips in each device.
Beef prices are soaring. Meat processor Tyson Foods reported that its average price for beef rocketed 27.8% higher in the six months that ended on April 2. Beyond Meat's pea-based beef substitute is pricier than real beef, so it stands to reason that rising beef prices should make Beyond Burgers and other fake-meat products more attractive to consumers.

Canadian cannabis company Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQ: ACB) reported its fiscal third-quarter 2022 earnings last night, and in so doing, sparked a rally across the cannabis sector today. As of 1 p.m. ET, shares of Aurora Cannabis itself are already up 13%, and peer producers Canopy Growth (NASDAQ: CGC) and Sundial Growers (NASDAQ: SNDL) are benefiting as well -- up 8.5% and 5.9%, respectively.

(Reuters) -Elon Musk tweeted on Friday that his $44-billion cash deal for Twitter Inc was “temporarily on hold” while he waits for the social media company to provide data on the proportion of its fake accounts. Twitter shares initially fell more than 20% in premarket trading, but after Musk, the chief executive of electric car market Tesla Inc, sent a second tweet saying he remained committed to the deal, they regained some ground. The shares were down 9.6% to $40.71 in trading on Friday, a steep discount to the $54.20 per share acquisition price.
Now that a star-crossed deal has closed, new plans are being rolled out to compete with the sector's king.
