Peter Schacknow

Check out the companies making headlines before the bell:

Las Vegas Sands (LVS), Wynn Resorts (WYNN) – These will be among casino stocks on watch, on news that gambling revenue in Macao fell a worse-than-expected 11.3% amid the spread of the coronavirus.
Delta Air Lines (DAL), American Airlines (AAL), United Airlines (UAL) – These and other airline stocks will also be in the spotlight, as new restrictions on travel to and from China are implemented.
Apple (AAPL) – Apple shut down all its stores and corporate offices in mainland China due to the coronavirus. The closure is scheduled to last until Feb. 9.
Aimmune Therapeutics (AIMT) – The drugmaker received Food and Drug Administration approval for the first-ever treatment for peanut allergies.
Check Point Software (CHKP) – Check Point reported quarterly profit of $2.02 per share, 3 cents a share above estimates. The cybersecurity company's revenue also beat Street forecasts, boosted by an increase in subscriptions.
Boeing (BA) – Boeing faces a new obstacle in getting the grounded 737 Max back in service, according to The Wall Street Journal. The paper quotes people familiar with the matter as saying that European regulators want what they regard as potentially hazardous wiring relocated to avoid short circuits.
Verizon (VZ) – Verizon was downgraded to "neutral" from "outperform" at Credit Suisse, which said the stock lacks positive near-term catalysts. Credit Suisse feels positive influences for the stock are weighted toward the back half of the year, ahead of the mass market launch of 5G service.
Seagate Technology (STX) – Seagate was upgraded to "buy" from "hold" at Stifel Nicolaus, pointing to improving fundamentals for the disk drive maker.
Nike (NKE) – The athletic footwear and apparel maker's stock was added to the "Analyst Focus List" at J.P. Morgan Chase, which sees a recent pullback as a buying opportunity. J.P. Morgan points to Nike's innovation and product pipeline.
Uber (UBER) – Uber was added to the "Best Ideas" list at Wedbush, which feels the ride-hailing service has laid the groundwork for growth, especially amid the streamlining of the Uber Eats operation.
Northrop Grumman (NOC) – The defense contractor's stock received a double downgrade at Goldman Sachs, which pushed its rating to "sell" from "buy." Goldman said the company's organic revenue growth is slower than that of its peers and that profit margins are compressing.

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. But the far greater long-term danger may be the blow to government cyber defenders' morale, former officials warn. 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. About 20 percent of staffers are furloughed at the De

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
