Stocks Stumbling After Thanksgiving Week

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) is extending its premarket losses, down 265 points at midday, as protests in China over the country's zero-Covid policy weigh on investor sentiment globally. Apple (AAPL) in particular is feeling the heat after Wedbush said the protests could lead to an iPhone shortage of up to 10% this holiday season. Meanwhile, the retail sector is in the spotlight this Cyber Monday, especially after online Black Friday sales hit a record-breaking $9 billion.
