Stocks Earnings Beats
A worse-than-expected University of Michigan’s May consumer report halted stock gains on Friday, sparking worries about a potential decline in consumer health amid perceived rising price pressures. The report disclosed that both near-term and long-term inflation expectations have surged beyond projections this month, causing the broader consumer gauge to hit its lowest levels in six months. “If spending slows down and inflation increases, we'll get the opposite of the Goldilocks scenario that many were hoping for, and the Fed will be in an especially difficult position of choosing between accommodating a slowing economy and fighting increasing inflation expectations,” said Chris Zaccarelli, chief investment officer for Independent Advisor Alliance. Echoing this view, Jeffrey Roach, chief economist for LPL Financial, sees rising risks of stagflation, a concern that could unsettle markets. At 12:05 p.m. trading in New York, the S&P 500 was 0.1% lower, but it was firmly up by 1.6% for the week, poised to secure a third consecutive week of gains after three of losses. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was a tad higher, battling to secure the eight straight session of gains, the longest positive streak since December 2023. Tech stocks were flat. Small caps were the underperformers, with the iShares Russell 2000 ETF (NYSE:IWM) down 0.9%. The rising ...Full story available on

Stocks surged higher on Thursday, with the S&P 500 index aiming to snap a four-day losing streak as investors assess the latest wave of corporate earnings. During midday trading in New York, all major indices were in the green. Notably, small caps, as tracked by the iShares Russell 2000 ETF (NYSE:IWM), outperformed, posting a 1% increase. Industry-wise, airline stocks continued their upward momentum, with the U.S. Global Jets ETF (NYSE:JETS) climbing 2.7%, building on Wednesday’s 3.9% surge. Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) had another lackluster session, declining over 3% and on track for its lowest close since January 2023. This decline followed Deutsche Bank’s downgrade of the EV-maker from Buy to Hold, citing concerns over the strategic pivot to autonomous vehicles.

Wall Street can breathe a sigh of relief following the tense events on Saturday night, when Iran launched airstrikes against Israel. For now, the specter of escalation towards a larger conflict seems to have been mitigated, as both U.S. and U.K. allies have sternly cautioned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu against any retaliatory actions towards Tehran. Major U.S. indices moved sideways in midday trading on Monday in New York, halting the significant losses recorded last Friday and the risks of a further extension following last Saturday’s heightened geopolitical tensions. The market sentiment was further bolstered by a retail sales report that significantly exceeded expectations, showing a 0.7% increase last month. However, this robust data slightly tempered ...Full story available on

By Jupiter Zheng For many years, observers have wondered when the behemoths of traditional finance, like BlackRock (NYSE: BLK) and JPMorgan (NYSE: JPM), would finally enter the blockchain arena in a big way. The expectation that these bellwethers of global finance would, in a sense, “see the light” by acknowledging the technological advantages of web3 was perhaps a little naive. But it was not unfounded: traditional investors have been making incremental shifts in this direction for some time, whether by investing in spot cryptocurrency, launching custody services, settling digital bonds on public ledgers, or creating their own product offerings for retail and institutional clients. The argument that blockchain and cryptocurrencies must be embraced by traditional powerhouses in order to flourish is a sound one. But the heavy focus on legacy financial institutions overlooks something important: the rise of crypto-native institutions. Rather than having to be convinced of the merits of distributed ledgers, these forward-looking innovators and investors grew up with decentralized tech at the heart of their operations and vision. And make no mistake, they will be the ones to drive the industry – and maybe finance as a whole – forward. We Were Always Here: The Vitality of Crypto-Native Institutions As the crypto industry has matured, a new breed of institution has emerged. These are not your traditional Wall Street firms belatedly flirting with blockchain tech; they are entities that fundamentally understand and appreciate the ethos of decentralization. They get the tech, and the reasons for its development, at an instinctive level. They have been an integral part of Web3 since the technology’s inception, and have evolved together with it. From the beginning, these institutions have been key drivers in the industry’s advancement through major milestones, from the rise ...Full story available on

Investors can breathe a sigh of relief on Thursday as last month’s Producer Price Index (PPI) inflation turned out slightly lower than expected, albeit with some caveats across different measures within the basket. Stocks rebounded by noon trading in New York, yet the surge fell short of recovering Wednesday’s losses, indicating lingering nervousness regarding the rate-path outlook. Traders have significantly adjusted their expectations for the Fed’s future actions in the past 24 hours, pushing the potential first-rate cut from June to September, with less than two cuts priced in by year-end. The tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 outperformed the broader market, up 1.2%, driven by a rally in the semiconductor industry, with Nvidia Corp. (NASDAQ:NVDA) surging 3.1% following a 2% increase the previous day. Treasury yields stayed flat in the short-end, while inching higher in the long-end of the curve, triggering further declines in long-dated Treasury bonds.
