    Boeing stock took a serious hit in the first 20 days after one of its 737 Max 8 jets crashed in Ethiopia. But this could make the case to invest in Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) even stronger.

    Frankly, how much money was lost doesn’t matter – they tried to pick a top or a bottom in stocks they loved, or indices they wanted to buy, only to watch ’em drop further, and their account statements turn from green to a sea of red. Or they bought into “expensive” stocks like The Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), or even Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) and live in constant fear of a reversal that could turn their hard earned retirement dreams into the stuff of nightmares.

    Now, here’s a closer look at today’s Money Morning insight, the most important market events, and stocks to watch.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Monday
    This morning, investors are gearing up for the start of earnings season as we get our first look at first-quarter results. Wednesday will feature earnings from Delta Air Lines Inc. (NYSE: DAL), while Friday will show results from JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) and Wells Fargo & Co.(NYSE: WFC). Banking has generated a lot of news in recent days, after Warren Buffett received questions over who should become the next CEO of Wells Fargo. Buffett said the next CEO should not come from a major Wall Street bank like Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) or JPMorgan because the candidate could receive too much scrutiny from regulators and Congress.
    Oil prices are ticking higher following Friday’s positive March jobs report and news of military conflict in Libya. At a time that global oil cartel OPEC plans to slash output to support prices, analysts project that growing conflict in Libya could tighten oil supplies even further. This morning, WTI crude traded at $63.49 per barrel, while Brent crude – the global benchmark – saw prices as high as $70.82 per barrel. To tap into rising oil prices, here are the top two energy stocks to buy in April. The Federal Reserve is back in focus as President Trump prepares to nominate former GOP candidate Herman Cain to the board of the U.S. central bank. Critics have argued that Trump’s nomination threatens to “politicize” the Federal Reserve after the president criticized Chair Jerome Powell over the markets and the economy. Over the weekend, however, Trump economic adviser Larry Kudlow noted on “Meet the Press” that Cain was the former president of the Kansas City Federal Reserve.
