Quick Glance: Tesla to Cut 14,000 Jobs, Elon Musk Aims for Lean Brand
  • Tesla is laying off more than 10% of its global workforce, equivalent to at least 14,000 roles, in response to slowing demand and price pressure.

  • Tesla recorded a gross profit margin of 17.6% in the fourth quarter, the lowest in over four years, attributed to repeated price cuts and increased competition in China.

How the Israel-Iran conflict could send oil prices higher
Quick Glance: Oil Prices Could Witness a 'Super Spike Well Above $100' Post Iran's Strike on Israel
  • Market analysts predicted that oil prices could surge to $100 per barrel and beyond after Iran conducted an aerial attack on Israel, reigniting concerns of a regional war.

  • Iran carried out an aerial attack on Israel on Saturday night, launching over 300 drones and missiles, marking the first direct military attack by Iran on the Jewish state.

  • Insufficient investment renders the supply more fragile, raising the likelihood of a 'super spike well above $100' if the supply is disrupted.

  • Recent months have seen oil prices rise due to trade disruptions and delays caused by maritime attacks in the Red Sea by the Houthis, who express solidarity with the Palestinian people.

Quick Glance: Trump Faces Landmark Trial Over Hush Money Case
  • Donald Trump will go down in history as the first former president to stand trial in Manhattan on criminal charges. The historic case revolves around a potential sex scandal cover-up just days before the 2016 elections.

  • The prosecution alleges that Trump falsified business records to hide hush money payments aimed at influencing the election outcome. Trump maintains his innocence and refutes any involvement with Stormy Daniels.

  • The trial will feature key witnesses from Trump's inner circle testifying against him, including Michael Cohen and David Pecker. It will delve into the Oval Office, where Trump allegedly approved the cover-up.

  • Prosecutors must prove that Trump falsified business records with intent to commit or conceal another crime. Trump's defense is likely to focus on the legality of the hush money payments and attempt to distance him from the accounting handled by his employees.
