Let the stimulus logrolling begin (I hope): Republicans near $1 trillion (maybe) with Democrats at $3 trillion as McConnell describes his plan on Senate floor

Let the stimulus logrolling begin (I hope): Republicans near $1 trillion (maybe) with Democrats at $3 trillion as McConnell describes his plan on Senate floor

Of course, there isn’t actually a Republican bill in the Senate yet, but in a floor speech today Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said “The American economy needs another shot of adrenaline.” McConnell also noted that infections are “climbing in hot spots around the country.” At least we’re edging toward something that looks like the usual pattern of talks and compromise between the Democratic controlled House or Representatives and the Republican Senate. The wildcard, the thing that could derail any compromise, is a list of supposedly “line in the sand” demands from the White House. If President Trump is serious when he says he won’t sign a bill that doesn’t contain a payroll tax cut or that does contain more money for testing, then we could still wind up with no deal by the time Congress is scheduled to go on recess on August 10. That recess is scheduled to extend through September 7.

But key fundamentals of the business remained on track.

Today it’s Amazon’s market

Today it’s Amazon’s market

This morning shares of Amazon (AMZN) burst higher out of the box, gaining 5.98% as of noon New York time. The catalyst, it appears, was a new target price from Goldman Sachs of $3800 a share, up from the previous target of $3000. The shares had closed at $2961.97 on Friday, July 17. That big move in Amazon was enough to move the Standard & Poor’s 500 higher by 0.33% and the NASDAQ Composite up 1.41%. The Technology Select Sector SPDR (XLK) ETF was up 1.46% at noon. But the Amazon move wasn’t done

Market worries that a smaller-than-expected drop in new claims for unemployment portends future downturn in economy

Market worries that a smaller-than-expected drop in new claims for unemployment portends future downturn in economy

Initial jobless claims in regular state programs totaled a seasonally adjusted 1.3 million in the week ended July 11, down just 10,000 from the prior week, the Labor Department reported this morning. That’s the smallest drop in the new claims since March and feeds into worries that the recovery in the jobs market is stalling as states pause or reverse re-openings. Economists had expected initial claims for the week to fall to 1.25 million.
