A failed attempted coup in Turkey over the weekend dictated the direction of oil. West Texas Intermediate more than one percent on Monday after a key port was found to have been undisturbed by the turmoil, offering no relief to an already-oversupplied market. J.B. Hunt (JBHT) slumped after missing quarterly earnings and disappointing with a softer outlook. The freight trucking company now sees full-year sales growth of just seven percent, below a recent range of at least nine percent. Netflix (NFLX) has closed a deal with CBS (CBS) to stream the new and original Star Trek series. The new series will premiere in January with Netflix streaming each episode within 24 hours of its broadcast.
