The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies — the influential oil alliance known as OPEC+ — extended their collective cuts in crude production through 2025. The cuts were set to expire this year, and analysts and OPEC+ delegates awaited the decision to change the timeline. The coalition will produce a total of 39.725 million barrels per day next year, it said.

GameStop shares have seen a huge rally once again, on speculation that Keith Gill, the man behind the “Roaring Kitty” account that inspired the epic 2021 short squeeze, could take a huge position in the retailer video games. The stock rose more than 70% Monday in premarket trading. Gill, who also goes by DeepF——Value on Reddit, had posted a screenshot of what may be his wallet containing a significant amount of GameStop common stock and call options. The post was not verified by CNBC and he did not post on the WallStreetBets forum where he had previously made infamous trading updates.

Ford looks to the future. But its vision for the future seems a little different from that of some other companies, which are looking to downsize as employees become accustomed to working from home. Meanwhile, Ford spent nearly $1 billion restoring and reopening an abandoned century-old train station and other buildings to create the automaker’s new technology campus. Ford Chairman Bill Ford Jr., great-grandson of company founder Henry Ford and leader of the project, said the 30-acre campus will be key to talent acquisition and retention. The company plans to house at least 2,500 employees in the building as well as other occupants. So far, about two-thirds of the tower has planned tenants or use cases, officials said.
