Stocks fell for a second day yesterday, pressured by declines in tech and bank shares, pausing a sharp rally to start off the month of June.

 

Falling gasoline and used-vehicle prices held inflation in check in May and inflation pressures more broadly eased again, potentially making it easier for the Federal Reserve to reduce the cost of borrowing soon if the U.S. economy weakens any further.  The consumer price index rose a scant 0.1% in April, matching forecast. It was the smallest increase since January.  More notably, the increase in the cost of living over the past 12 months slowed to 1.8% from 2%. The rate of inflation has tapered off from nearly 3% since last summer.

 

Newly minted public company CrowdStrike rocketed as much as 97% in its first day of trading in the public market yesterday. The security software vendor opened trading at $63.50 after it priced its IPO at $34.  The stock settled to a pop of more than 83%, pushing its market cap over $12 billion, nearly quadruple the valuation from its last private funding round in June 2018. The company is worth about as much as 37-year-old security software provider Symantec despite having about 5% as much revenue.  More evidence the IPO market’s are in bubble territory right now.
 
According to the Wall Street Journal new emails found by Facebook may implicate CEO Mark Zuckerberg in several of the privacy controversies that have battered the social network— something that the company has denied.  According to the publication, a cache of unearthed emails show that Zuckerberg may have been aware of privacy problems with his site that pre-dated the Cambridge Analytica scandal.  Some of these emails could show that Zuckerberg was aware of potential privacy violations that ran afoul of a 2012 settlement with regulators.  Shares of Facebook traded lower on the news.

(Portland, OR)  --  Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard is being honored with the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award.  The award named after the former commissioner recognizes the player, coach or trainer that shows outstanding service and dedication to the community.  Lillard's RESPECT program has helped show the value of education and has impacted the lives of many students.



(Tacoma, WA)  --  Brian Fernandez scored twice as the Timbers defeated the Sounders 2-1 in the fourth round of the U.S. Open Cup.  Portland will resume MLS action on June 22nd.  The Timbers are last in the Western Conference with 14 points.



(Renton, WA)  --  The Seahawks will close up shop on the practice field today.  It's the final day of mandatory minicamp.  Seattle will return later this summer for training camp as the Hawks get ready for the regular season.  They kick off the preseason August 8th against Denver.



(Minneapolis, MN)  --  A fielder's choice and a throwing error allowed the Mariners to take a 9-6 lead in the 10th innings and down the Twins in Minnesota.  Shed Long's three-run homer in the eighth staked Seattle to a 6-1 lead, but the bullpen couldn't hold it as the game went to extras.  Anthony Bass got the win.  The M's and Twins wrap up their series in Minnesota today.



(Eugene, OR)  --  The 2019 Oregon Ducks Hall of Fame class has been announced.  Among the inductees is former Ducks football coach Mike Bellotti, who helped lay the groundwork for some of the most successful seasons in program history.  He will join the likes of track stars Galen Rupp and Rachel Yurkovich and former Ducks offensive lineman Max Unger among others.



(Washington, DC)  --  The Storm are back on the road when they visit the Mystics tomorrow.  Seattle is 4-and-3 on the season.  The Storm are coming off an 84-82 win over the Fever Tuesday at Indiana.



(Renton, WA)  --  The Seahawks are thin at tight end and Jacob Hollister is hoping to move up the depth chart.  The former Mt. View High School star has already opened eyes during the team's mandatory minicamp that began yesterday, earning praise from offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer.  The Seahawks acquired Hollister after a trade with the New England Patriots in April.  The Patriots had high hopes for the 6-foot-4, 245-pound Hollister following his rookie season, but he suffered chest and hamstring injuries that limited him to eight games in 2018 and was placed on injured reserve in January 2019.



(Eugene, OR)  --  Oregon baseball is naming Mark Wasikoski its new head coach.  Wasikowski served as an assistant at Oregon from 2011 to 2016 before becoming head coach at Purdue.  He went 87-and-82 in three seasons with the Boilermakers, including an NCAA Regional appearance in 2018.  Wasikowski was an assistant on 11 NCAA Regional teams in 13 seasons, including four in five years with the Ducks.



(Renton, WA)  --  With the Seahawks three-day minicamp underway, one of the most positive developments has been the participation of defensive tackle Jarran Reed.  Reed, who had a career-best 10.5 sacks last season, had surgery for a core muscle injury in April.  Another defensive lineman returning from injury is free-agent signing Ezekiel Ansah.  The Pro Bowl pass-rusher isn't practicing yet but is making good progress in his comeback from the shoulder injury that ended his 2018 season in Detroit.  Minicamp concludes tomorrow.



(Tacoma, WA)  --  The Timbers are ready to host the Seattle Sounders tonight in the fourth round of the U.S. Open Cup at Cheney Stadium.  Portland is coming off a 3-2 loss to LAFC in MLS play.  The Timbers are 12th in the West with 14 points.  They return to league play June 22nd.



(Minneapolis, MN)  --  The Mariners gave up three runs in the eighth inning and lost 6-5 to the Twins in Minnesota.  Edwin Encarnacion hit a three-run homer in the third to give the M's the early lead.  Brandon Brennan took the loss.  Seattle has traded wins and losses in its last seven games.  The Mariners are last in the AL West at 28-and-42.
