China has provided North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his family with an experimental coronavirus vaccine, a U.S. analyst said on Tuesday, citing two unidentified Japanese intelligence sources.

It was unclear which company had supplied its drug candidate to the Kims and whether it had proven to be safe, he added.
(Bloomberg) -- Oil held losses near $45 a barrel as OPEC+ sought more time to reach a deal on production policy after a meeting on Monday broke down without an agreement.Futures were 0.2% lower in New York. Ministers will now meet on Thursday rather than Tuesday to allow more time to deliberate on whether to delay a planned increase in output from January. While some see the market as too fragile to absorb additional barrels, others are keen to pump more to take advantage of higher prices following Covid-19 vaccine breakthroughs.There had been some consensus building between ministers around keeping cuts for another three months, but friction has emerged with the United Arab Emirates on quotas, while Kazakhstan wavered on an extension.Oil has just capped its biggest monthly increase since May on optimism energy demand will rebound rapidly as Covid-19 vaccines start to be rolled out in the coming weeks. OPEC+ talks have been complicated by the price gain and cracks have appeared in the alliance, with Saudi Arabia’s energy minister signaling his dissatisfaction with the situation on Monday by telling others he may resign as co-chair of a committee that oversees the output deal.See also: The Oil Market’s ‘Other’ Traders Are Short Like Never BeforeGlobal fuel demand still remains shaky.

Scott Atlas, President Trump’s special adviser on COVID-19 who pushed back on lockdowns and repeatedly downplayed the severity of the coronavirus pandemic, has submitted a resignation letter, multiple news agencies report. Atlas began his 130-day position as a Special Government Employee in August, and his gig was set to expire this week. The Trump adviser has fielded fierce criticism for his efforts to downplay the pandemic and block states from enacting their own measures to combat the only worsening outbreak, including enacting mask mandates and social distancing guidelines. Some federal health officials were desperate for Atlas to leave, as they worried he still held too much influence over the Trump administration’s approach to the pandemic, which has now killed more than 267,000 Americans.“He’s a destructive force,” one senior official told The Daily Beast. “I mean, at this point, I don’t know how else to explain what he’s doing. It’s really disruptive.”Earlier this month, Atlas sparked an outcry by suggesting people “rise up” over Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s latest coronavirus mandate.“You get what you accept,” he said.In his resignation letter, Atlas insisted he “always relied on the latest science and evidence, without any political consideration or influence.”“As time went on, like all scientists and health policy scholars, I learned new information and synthesized the latest data from around the world, all in an effort to provide you with the best information to serve the greater public good,” he wrote as the pandemic reached new heights, with over 13,522,247 cases in the United States alone.

(Bloomberg) -- Tesla Inc. will be added to the S&P 500 Index in one shot on Dec. 21, a move that will ripple through the entire market as money managers adjust their portfolios to make room for shares of the $538 billion company.Given Tesla’s massive market size, S&P had sought a consultation with investors earlier in November, asking for feedback on whether the stock should be folded into the index all at once or in two parts, which would have been unprecedented. The electric-vehicle maker will be the seventh-biggest company in the S&P 500 at its current market value, falling between Berkshire Hathaway Inc. and Visa Inc.With about $11 trillion in funds tied to the S&P 500, money managers have been looking toward a few busy weeks ahead no matter how Tesla was included in the index. Whether it was one fell swoop or two separate tranches, managers of index-tracking funds would still have had to offload stocks of several other companies to make room for the mammoth newcomer in their portfolios.“It looks like they’re ripping the band-aid off,” said Steve Sosnick, chief strategist at Interactive Brokers. “It’s ultimately less disruptive than trying something new with the largest index addition ever.”Tesla shares rose more than 4% in postmarket trading after S&P Dow Jones Indices announced the plan in a brief statement on Monday. The index provider said it will release a full statement on Tuesday morning. The stock slipped 3.1% in Monday’s regular session from a record high on Nov. 27. Tesla shares are up about 580% this year.Adding the company in the traditional way is “simple and easy to understand” said Gary Black, a private investor who was chief executive of Aegon Asset Management from mid-2016 through September.After the initial buying into the Dec. 21 inclusion, the stock may pull back, if history is any guide, according to Black. The shares may fall about 10% to 20%, a pattern that would be consistent with what happened to Facebook after its entry into the S&P 500 seven years ago.Read more: Tesla FOMO Fires Up Wall Street’s $300 Billion Custom-Index BoomTesla’s market capitalization is larger than any other company had at its debut in the S&P 500.

As far as Saints coach Sean Payton is concerned, there were meaningful storylines coming out of New Orleans' lopsided victory at Denver that had nothing to do with the Broncos being forced to play without a true NFL quarterback.

Japanese companies cut spending on plant and equipment in July-September for a second straight quarter as the coronavirus pandemic hit private sector demand.

Ministry of Finance data out Tuesday showed Japanese firms' capital expenditure fell 10.6% in July-September from the same period in the year before, following a decline of 11.3% in the previous quarter.
