The major indexes stumbled as investors weighed the latest round of earnings and the Federal Reserve’s next move — and more in Friday’s stock market recap.
Social media company Snap Inc. (NYSE: SNAP) disappointed on both revenue and average revenue per user, a key metric for the company. This caused shares to plummet about 28% in premarket trading Friday.
American Express Co. (NYSE: AXP) also disappointed on revenue, falling 5%.
These negative earnings reports are pulling down other companies like Meta Platforms Inc. (Nasdaq: META) and Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG), which are down 4% and 1.8%, respectively. These companies don’t report until next week.
In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss which sectors are thriving and which are failing, a broad view of the global economy… the top ETF that keeps trending stronger… an update on the bond market and what to expect… the divergence between small caps and interest rates… plus how algos have changed the dynamics of momentum in the past 30 years.
