Eye on the Markets: Coronavirus Stocks/Investments thread

Zombie company

In political economy, a zombie company is a company that needs bailouts in order to operate, or an indebted company that is able to repay the interest on its debts but not repay the principal.

If we've learned anything it's dont listen to pundits anymore, it was one month ago dire predicitons were made about corona resurgence due to reopenings. The NASDAQ just hit an all time high by the way.
Bear market rallies often the most vicious. We will see this fall how the markets are trading.
 
All this nonsense about our economy being in good shape based on our stock market is baffling.

Wall Street was again artificially pumped with our tax dollars while most of Americans continue to get the shaft.

Our nation has become a service industry economy for the most part and service industries are on life support.

I guess I should have said 'jawbone the Fed into more easing" aka goosing Wall Street/markets.

That is all he has

Corona virus response--yuck

You can forget that second stimulus. Markets approaching all time highs. Improved jobs report, although almost certainly flawed. He can't play it both ways; he can't celebrate the jobs report then turn around and say "it's really BS so we need more stimulus".
 
100 percent the stimulus is coming.
Lock of the century

And yeah he can talk out of both sides of his mouth and not even feel a tiny bit guilty about it.

state and federal employees are exempt from SS and have much more beneficial programs for themselves.
State and federal employees have not been exempt from Social Security for a long time. Has been for at least 30 years (feds -1990) -- most likely before 1987 (states). The non-exemption probably ended at the same time for both. (Dates based on personal knowledge.) Remember my Mom mentioning that federal employees would have to start paying social security taxes,
but don't remember the time frame. I'm guessing sometime in the 1980's before 1987.

Feel free to research the exact date.

The Fast Money crew was addressing a number of sports bettors turned market investors/gamblers today. Piling into garbage like Hertz or Chesapeake may have worked for a day or two, but bets on bankrupt companies, or those teetering on it, will likely end in tears. Can't say I disagree.

Well lookie here, futures down nearly 500 overnight after back to back healthy down days. Do I smell another correction? May want to review that Heroes Act after all. Sqwauk on the Street is next. This is CNBC.

If the trend continues trump is going to take more of our money to artificially inflate the market again to attempt to reverse his plummeting poll numbers
