Peter Schacknow

Check out the companies making headlines before the bell:

Boeing (BA) – Boeing’s 737 Max jet has been taken off flight schedules for both American Airlines (AAL) and Southwest Airlines (LUV) until early March, as they await the return to service of the still-grounded jet.
Alibaba (BABA) – Alibaba is on pace to post record sales for its Singles’ Day event, although the pace of year-to-year growth is seen as likely to fall short of year-ago levels. This is the 11th year the China-based e-commerce retailer has held the event.
Apple (AAPL) – Apple’s newly launched Apple Card is being accused of gender discrimination by the algorithm that determines credit limits. Goldman Sachs (GS), which partners with Apple in issuing the card, released a statement saying it does not make decisions on factors like gender.
Blackstone (BX) – Blackstone took a majority stake in MagicLab, the parent company of dating apps “Bumble” and “Badoo.” The private-equity firm’s investment values MagicLab at about $3 billion. (AMZN) – Amazon executive Steve Kessel is leaving the online retail giant after 20 years. Kessel is a senior vice president who has worked on both Amazon’s Kindle e-reader and its brick and mortar Amazon Go stores.
Xerox (XRX) – Xerox is offering computer and printer maker HP Inc. (HPQ) four weeks of mutual due diligence, according to a Bloomberg report. HP acknowledged last week that Xerox had approached it about a possible business combination.
Chewy (CHWY) – Chewy was rated “outperform” in new coverage at Credit Suisse, saying the online pet products seller is well-positioned in a robust pet care industry.
Tesla (TSLA) – Jefferies raised its price target on the automaker’s stock to $400 per share from $300 a share, noting gross margin levels that are consistent with sustained profitability.
Bank of New York Mellon (BK) – The bank’s stock was upgraded to “buy” from “neutral “at UBS, which notes a stabilization in net interest income as well as improved cost controls.
Cisco Systems (CSCO) – The networking equipment maker’s stock was downgraded to “neutral” from “overweight” at Piper Jaffray, which points to a slowing macro environment in Cisco’s markets as well as the lack of any near term catalyst for the stock.
Bellring Brands (BRBR) – The maker of Power Bar and other nutrition products was rated “overweight in new coverage at Morgan Stanley, with a price target of $21 a share. The stock went public at $14 per share last month.

Analysis | The Cybersecurity 202: How the shutdown could make it harder for the government to retain cybersecurity talent

By Joseph Marks 13-17 minutes THE KEY President Trump delivers an address about border security amid a partial government shutdown on Jan. 8. (Carolyn Kaster/AP) The partial government shutdown that's now in its 18th day is putting key cyber policy priorities on hold and leaving vital operations to a bare bones staff.

With the prospect of better pay and greater job security in the private sector, more government cyber operators are likely to decamp to industry, those former officials tell me, and the smartest cybersecurity graduates will look to industry rather than government to hone their skills. That’s especially dangerous, they say, considering the government’s struggle to recruit and retain skilled workers amid a nationwide shortage of cybersecurity talent.

Democrats call for investigation into Trump’s iPhone use after a report that China is listening:Analysis | The Daily 202 I The Washington Post. By James Hohmann _________________________________________________________________________________ President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping visit the Great Hall of the People in Beijing last November. (Andrew Harnik/AP) With Breanne Deppisch and Joanie Greve THE BIG IDEA: If Democrats win the House in two weeks, it’s a safe bet that one of the oversight hearings they schedule for early next year would focus on President Trump’s use of unsecured cellphones. The matter would not likely be pursued with anywhere near the gusto that congressional Republicans investigated Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state. Leaders of the minority party have higher priorities . But Democratic lawmakers made clear Thursday morning that they will not ignore a New York Times report that Trump has refused to stop using iPhones in the White House, despite repeated warnings from U.S. intelligence offici
