  3. US Chamber of Commerce calls for ending extra unemployment benefits after disappointing jobs report (07/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    "The disappointing jobs report makes it clear that paying people not to work is dampening what should be a stronger jobs market," U.S. Chamber of Commerce Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley said in a statement on Friday. "One step policymakers should take now is ending the $300 weekly supplemental unemployment benefit. Based on the Chamber’s analysis, the $300 benefit results in approximately one in four recipients taking home more in unemployment than they earned working." The U.S. economy added much fewer jobs than expected in April, with employers increasing their payrolls by 266,000 jobs, well below the 1 million that economists expected, according to consensus data compiled by Bloomberg. The economy is still 8.2 million jobs short of its February 2020 pre-pandemic levels. Source   submitted by   /u/LogicX64 [link]   [comments]

  28. U.S. Job Growth Picked Up Steam in May After Disappointing April (04/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    U.S. job growth picked up in May and the unemployment rate fell, signaling firms are making some progress filling a record number of openings as the economy powers up. Payrolls increased by 559,000 last month after a revised 278,000 gain in April, according to a Labor Department report Friday. The median estimate in a Bloomberg survey of economists was for a 675,000 rise. The jobless rate dropped to 5.8%, while the labor participation rate was little changed. Long-term Treasury yields are little changed, the dollar declined and U.S. stock futures moved higher. The payrolls gain leaves the U.S. labor market 7.6 million jobs short of pre-pandemic levels. A broader improvement in the labor market requires faster job growth among service providers, like the leisure and hospitality industry, that have suffered a more lengthy disruption from the health crisis.

  38. “Disappointing but hopeful” stocks you hold (22/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Are there any stocks in your portfolio right now that have been disappointing so far, but they don’t frustrate you as much because you’re hopeful that they’ll turn it around at some point in the foreseeable future? Also, for those who’ve invested for several years, have there been any stocks from your past that fit this category? If so, what did you eventually do with those stocks? I’m only less than two months into my investing journey, so take what I say with a grain of salt, but my top three so far are… 3) MA - Talk about a stock that swings wildly. At its peak, MasterCard was as high as +300 for me. At its bottom, it fell to almost -200. Right now it’s sitting at around -100. I saw MA’s chart before I bought, and I noticed the wild price swings, but I also saw the general upward trend of higher highs and lows, which is why I’m not worried about its ability to eventually recover again. 2) SBUX - The stock was climbing from the moment I bought it…until its earnings report. Then it recovered. Then it didn’t. Yet despite its ridiculously high P/E ratio, it’s Starbucks. Its brand is as loud as Coca-Cola or Disney. I doubt it stays down for long. 1) OPY - When I was trying to find undervalued stocks, Oppenheimer’s numbers made it an attractive buy. Then the recent panic over inflation hit, and OPY wasn’t immune from the fall. Still, all indicators point to it being undervalued, and it’s already shown the ability to recover at least once. It seems as though I just got in at a bad time.   submitted by   /u/ZhangtheGreat [link]   [comments]

  46. Monday predictions Because of NFP report (03/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I believe that the tech market will be down on Monday. The report was quite positive, smashing expectations for new jobs. There is other stuff. But I see value stocks back in play for Monday. Rotation out of tech for a day or two, and then back into tech for April. The fact that the report was positive sounds positive overall, but more jobs means more workers, and more people being out and about and spending on basic necessities that they needed. I can’t imagine this translating to more spending on tech stocks. I think there’s still value in some tech stocks, which is why I say April will be green overall, but I’m talking Monday open after Easter. Historically seems to be more favored to a down day also.
