Arhaq

Airline stocks are the most overbought they’ve been in years, chart analyst Matt Maley said Thursday.

Travel stocks were swept up by a broader market sell-off in Thursday’s trading session, with airline, hotel and cruise line names paring back after substantial year-to-date rallies.

The reversal could mark the start of a larger setback, particularly for airline stocks, Maley, who is chief market strategist at Miller Tabak, told CNBC’s “Trading Nation” on Thursday.

Up more than 180% from the March 2020 lows and 30% just this month, the NYSE Arca Airline Index is “really getting stretched here,” Maley said.

For Covid-vaccinated individuals in the 65-and-over crowd, hitting the road (or sky) may become more alluring than it’s been in nearly a year.

Be sure to consider whether your Medicare plan will travel with you. 

While coverage when you’re away from home depends partly on your destination, it also hinges on the specifics of your Medicare plan. Whether the care you receive is routine or due to an emergency also can play a part.

In other words, it’s worth knowing what to expect so there are no surprises.

Arhaq

It’s been more than a month since Frank Coronado got covid-19, but the photographer from Oaxaca, Mexico, still gasps for air when he speaks sometimes. Although his illness didn’t put him in the hospital, his case was severe enough that he worried about suffocating in his sleep.

Coronado’s personal experience with the coronavirus has made the Oaxaca native sensitive to the pandemic situation in the state. As he watched case numbers continuing to rise, he also noticed more tourists defying widely practiced public-health protocols, like wearing face masks in public.

On Feb. 25, Coronado posted a plea to his 171,000

Members of the House Finance Committee heard testimony on the bill Thursday.

Currently, the counties have the option to not participate in the state’s “Safe Travels” program — which requires a single negative COVID-19 test before departure for Hawaii to avoid a mandatory quarantine. Counties can either require people to quarantine for 10 days, implement additional
