Hot Stocks in the News: SeaDrill Limited (NYSE:SDRL), Itaú Unibanco Holding S.A. (NYSE:ITUB), Visa Inc. (NYSE:V)

Oil fell on Monday as weaker-than-predictable Chinese economic data weighed on markets, adding to concerns that declining global demand would exacerbate a surplus of crude, according to Reuters.

Markets are also waiting to see if the U.S. central bank raises interest rates for the first time in nearly a decade later this week. Should rates rise, analysts expect oil to fall, as a stronger dollar would undermine demand from importing countries.

Oil prices have fallen almost 60 percent since June 2014 on the largest global surplus in modern times and concerns about a slowing Chinese economy. Reuters Reports
