Catch up on the…

Catch up on the weekend's top five stories with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. President Donald Trump said on Sunday that he will extend the guidelines aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus to April 30, from his original target of Easter on April 12, according to Reuters. Trump added that deaths from the coronavirus could peak around Easter. The President also accused hospitals of hoarding ventilators that are in scarce supply across the U.S. as the coronavirus spreads, adding any hospitals not using the devices must release them, Reuters' Nandita Bose and Phil Stewart reported. Publicly traded companies in the space include Community Health (CYH), HCA Healthcare (HCA), LifePoint (LPNT), Tenet (THC) and Universal Health (UHS). 2. Amazon (AMZN) warehouse workers in Staten Island plan to strike on Monday to call attention to the lack of protections for employees who continue to come to work amid the coronavirus outbreak, CNBC's Annie Palmer reported. Nearly 100 workers at the facility, known as JFK8, plan to participate in the work stoppage, the author notes. The employees will walk out Monday morning and "cease all operations" until their demands are heard by site leadership, said Chris Smalls, a management assistant at JFK8 and a lead organizer of the strike. 3. Microsoft (MSFT), Apple (AAPL), Amazon, and Google parent Alphabet (GOOGL) with their fortress-solid balance sheets, are poised to come out of the downturn just as strong as they went in, Eric Savitz wrote in this week's edition of Barron's. 4. General Motors (GM) agreed to a $120M settlement over faulty ignition switches that allegedly caused cars to stall and air bags to deploy, in some cases triggering fatal accidents, Bloomberg's Robert Burnson reported. The deal, which must be approved by a judge, would resolve hundreds of lawsuits filed before the automaker sought bankruptcy protection in 2009, the author noted. 5. Caterpillar (CAT), Merck (MRK), UnitedHealth, Intel (INTC), Honeywell International (HON), Best Buy (BBY), W.W. Grainger (GWW), D.R. Horton (DHI), Qualcomm (QCOM), Akamai Technologies (AKAM), Lockheed Martin (LMT), and BlackRock (BLK) saw positive mentions in this week's edition of Barron's.

Citi analyst Walter Pritchard opened an upside catalyst watch on Check Point Software (CHKP) and downside catalyst watches on ServiceNow (NOW), Okta (OKTA), Ping Identity (PING) and Zscaler (ZS). These are based on recent moves in the stocks and the analyst's view of upcoming events. Pritchard's channel checks indicate short-term priorities are "jumping the line" and that the deal sign-off process is complicated by individuals working from home.

Apple (AAPL) plans to launch several Mac notebooks and desktop computers with its own custom Arm-based processors in 2021, MacRumors' Joe Rossignol reports, citing a research note by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Kuo believes that Arm-based processors will significantly enhance the competitive advantage of the Mac lineup, allow Apple to refresh its Mac models without relying on Intel's (INTC) processor roadmap, reduce processor costs by 40%-60%, and provide Macs with more hardware differentiation from Windows (MSFT) PCs.

BTIG analyst Gray Powell initiated coverage of Ping Identity with a Buy rating and $25 price target. The company's ability to facilitate remote work solutions and its large-enterprise exposure provide some level of insulation against macro headwinds from the COVID-19 outbreak, Powell tells investors in a research note. The analyst thinks much of the Ping Identity story is misunderstood by investors and likes the stock at current levels.

BTIG analyst Gray Powell initiated coverage of Check Point Software Technologies with a Buy rating and $117 price target. The analyst feels the stock is "too cheap to ignore" with an attractive risk/reward profile. Unlike peers, Check Point relies much more on refresh business and upsell to existing customers versus chasing new customers to drive growth, says Powell. The analyst views the company as a "defensive play for volatile times."
