Stimulus Delay Not Yet a Cause for Concern

By |October 21st, 2020|Categories: Science4Data|

The delay on passing the new stimulus bill doesn’t seem to be translating into losses on the  stock market. An interesting contradiction on the state of the economy that is also present in our media analysis. Axios’ headline with its hint towards a looming crisis carries a negative sentiment with it, whereas the article on a whole has a rosier outlook at the legislative gridlock. 

The first stimulus bill worked. Providing a financial safety net to those impacted by the pandemic and allowing for the economy to hold up much better than expected. However, despite positive language on the current situation, there is a preponderance of risk and crisis language throughout this piece on what may occur. Most likely associated to the article’s final outlook: while the economy has fared better than expected, without further government assistance or market improvements the situation could worsen.

If the impasse between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the White House on a new stimulus deal is supposed to be a crisis, you wouldn't know it from the stock market, where prices continue to rise.

That's been in no small part because U.S. economic data has held up remarkably well in recent months thanks to the $2 trillion CARES Act and Americans' unusual ability to save during the crisis.

The bottom line: At worst, passing a stimulus bill would be a form of insurance on the recovery, Mike Fratantoni, chief economist of the Mortgage Bankers Association, tells Axios.

"If you listen to the public health experts there is a real risk that we see a second or third wave and the course of the pandemic could get worse from here.""If you're a policymaker, having that insurance or risk management mindset makes a lot of sense right now."

Job gains have slowed considerably since May, manufacturing and production are contracting and 26.5 million people are receiving unemployment, with 14 million at risk of losing benefits when pandemic programs expire at year end."

Netflix's stock was down more than 5% in after-hours trading Tuesday after the tech giant reported that it missed expectations on global subscriber growth for the quarter.

Details: The company met Wall Street estimates for its bottom line, but missed on earnings per share, suggesting that it spent more money on marketing and content relative to its subscriber revenues than investors had hoped.

What's next: The company forecasts it will add 6 million paid net subscribers globally next quarter, bringing its total global paid subscriber count to over 200 million.

It wasn't expected to match that growth this quarter, when lockdowns lifted and after new competitive services had launched, but analysts were still expecting it to meet expectations of at least 3.3 million net new global subscribers.

In a letter to shareholders, Netflix said that the pandemic and its impact "continues to make projections very uncertain, but as the world hopefully recovers in 2021, we would expect that our growth will revert back to levels similar to pre-COVID."

Stocks fell for a third day in a row following uncertainty around the U.S. stimulus bill and increasing covid cases in Europe; that’s the picture painted by CNBC on the state of the markets.

There is a strong preponderance of risk language in the overall article, with a focus on the uncertainties in global news leading to market volatility and a downward trend.

Stocks fell for a third day in a row on Thursday as hope for a U.S. coronavirus stimulus deal continues to decrease while infections across Europe are on the rise.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told CNBC's "Squawk Box" that he and President Donald Trump are committed to getting a stimulus deal done and that while it will be hard to get one done before the election, they will keep trying.

The uncertainty over new U.S. fiscal aid and disappointing economic data, along with the spike in coronavirus cases in Europe, came as investors waded through a slew of corporate earnings results.

Meanwhile, The Financial Times reported that France and the Netherlands are endorsing a plan for the European Union to curb the power of Big Tech, including by possibly breaking companies up.

Facebook led most of Big Tech lower, falling 1.9% amid rising regulatory concerns.
