    Oil, energy sector will be listening to Trump's RNC speech

    Former President Donald Trump is scheduled to formally accept his Republican party nomination and speak at the Republican National Convention (RNC) tonight. The energy sector (XLE) will be hanging on Trump's words if he references plans to up oil (CL=F, BZ=F) drilling practices or pullback on a green energy push that has been a policy staple under the Biden administration. Senior markets reporter Ines Ferré breaks down Stifel data that compares how clean energy and traditional energy stocks performed under Trump's and President Biden's first terms.

    Chip stocks under pressure, pharmaceuticals rise: Morning Brief

    On today's episode of Morning Brief, hosts Seana Smith and Madison Mills break down the market open and some of the biggest stories hitting the market. The major market averages (^DJI, ^IXIC, ^GSPC) are under pressure Wednesday morning, with the Nasdaq Composite falling by over 300 points — or over 1.6% — as semiconductor stocks drag down the tech-heavy indexes. As a new report from Bloomberg outlines the Biden administration's plans for stricter trade regulations on chip exports to China, Principal Asset Management chief global strategist Seema Shah explains: "In a way, this is not unexpected. I think everyone has been anticipating that,as you see this continuation of US-China tensions, that, unfortunately, some of these chip makers, technology almost falls right into the spotlight." However, InsingerGilissen senior analyst Jos Versteeg believes ASML (ASML) will continue to perform well despite the news, saying, "When you look at China, China semiconductor manufacturing, they are using mainly low-end chips and the US wants them to keep on producing low-end chips because the world needs it." Meanwhile, the US political landscape is heating up. In a recent Bloomberg interview, former President Donald Trump said he would allow Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell to complete his term if reelected, as long as Trump thinks Powell is "doing the right thing." However, Trump doesn't think the Fed should cut rates before the election in November because that could help President Biden's reelection prospects. Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk, who recently backed Trump in the 2024 election, announced on X, formerly Twitter, that he plans to relocate the headquarters of both SpaceX and X to Austin, Texas. This move is in response to a new California law regarding transgender rights in schools, bringing increased rhetoric to some of the biggest issues dominating the November election. Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) posted its second quarter earnings Wednesday morning, beating estimates on its top and bottom lines. However, the pharmaceutical giant slashed its full-year profit forecast. Shares of Roche (ROG.SW) are also moving higher on Wednesday as the company reported positive results from its obesity drug trial for a once-a-day oral pill currently labeled CT-996.

    2 reasons why oil will remain between $80 and $90 per barrel

    Crude oil (BZ=F, CL=F) prices are rebounding in Wednesday's trading session, ending a three-day slide. The Morning Brief welcomes on Rystad Energy global market analysis director and head of oil macro Claudio Galimberti to discuss the oil market dynamics at play. Galimberti attributes the oil rally primarily to demand concerns in China. "This is the major factor for this week that everybody is looking at," he says, also mentioning how Canadian wildfires may be contributing to price phenomena. He emphasizes that "the [energy] markets are still tight." Looking ahead, Galimberti forecasts oil prices to remain range-bound between $80 and $90 per barrel, largely due to OPEC production cuts. He explains this range with two key points: first, prices are unlikely to fall below $80 because "OPEC is very determined" to keep this threshold; second, prices are unlikely to exceed $90 because "when prices are high, there is an incentive for OPEC+ members to not be compliant" with agreed-upon production cuts.
