Global Fundamental Analysis 22/06/2020

OPENING CALL: The Australian share market is expected to open higher. 


Luckin has touted itself as China’s largest coffee chain by stores. It opened stores faster than Starbucks Corp., doubling its valuation to $12 billion eight months after going public. But it admitted to faking sales numbers on April 2, sending its stock plunging 75% overnight.


Apple Inc. said it would re-close nearly a dozen stores across four states where cases of the coronavirus have climbed, showing wariness in the business community about the safety of reopening in some places.
