/*============================================= = Thursday JUN 03 2021 = =============================================*/ Thursday, June 3, 2021 Futures Up/Down % Last Dow -146.00 0.42% 34,444 S&P 500 -18.25 0.44% 4,187 Nasdaq -62.50 0.46% 13,611 Stock futures are edging lower, with investors expressing some caution ahead of key economic data jobs reports later this morning. Stocks finished Wednesday with slim gains ahead of today’s ADP private payrolls and jobless claims and tomorrow’s nonfarm payrolls. Investors have been closely watching for signs of inflation and indications on whether the Fed could put the brakes on the rebounding U.S. economy sooner than anticipated. Politico is reporting this morning that President Biden wants $1 trillion in new spending in the infrastructure bill. Energy stocks were market leaders on Wednesday, led higher as oil prices advanced on improving demand expectations as the economy strengthens and as the dollar weakens. The benchmark S&P 500 is up about 12% this year, and within about 1% of its record high, as investors anticipate an economic rebound from the coronavirus pandemic. The big story this week remains the strength in a group of stocks favored by retail investors on forums such as Reddit’s WallStreetBets, led this week by surges in AMC Theatres ($AMC), Bed Bath & Beyond ($BBBY), and Blackberry ($BB), following the early year surge in GameStop ($GME) which has not given up its gains.
