This is an abridged transcript of the podcast.

Mexican state-run oil company, Pemex, has canceled contracts to supply refiners in the United States, Europe and Asia with its flagship Maya crude.

Bloomberg News reported Monday, citing people familiar with the matter that the company instead will divert the supplies to domestic refiners.

Mexico on average exports about 600,000 barrels a day of Maya crude. The country’s suspension of exports comes as Brent crude prices reach a six-month high amid plans by OPEC and its allies to curb output.

Analysts at Goldman Sachs said European demand for oil has been stronger than expected this year, which may help to drive up prices. J.P. Morgan last week said global benchmark Brent could reach $100 a barrel this year as Russia cuts supplies.

Brent is trading at more than $88 per barrel. Crude oil futures are nearing $85 per barrel.

Electric vehicle startup Canoo (NASDAQ:GOEV) warned on Monday about its ability to continue as a going concern,

The company highlighted dwindling cash reserves amid a slump in the EV market.

Shares of the Torrance, California-based company are down 24% premarket.

The EV maker said that it would be required to terminate or curtail its operations if it was unable to obtain sufficient additional funding.

Canoo (GOEV) recorded a net loss of $29 million for the fourth quarter. Its cash and cash equivalents were $6.4 million as of December 31, compared with $36.6 million in the same period last year.

It sees 2024 revenue in the range of $50 million to $100 million, vs. analysts’ estimates of $152.5 million.

Florida’s Supreme Court has ruled to allow a referendum on adult-use cannabis — Amendment 3 — to proceed to the ballot this November.

Approval of the November ballot would enable adult-use sales to commence in May 2025.

“The approval of Amendment 3 represents a leap forward for Florida’s cannabis sector, poised to ignite economic expansion and job creation,” NewLake Capital Partners (OTCQX:NLCP) said in a statement.
