The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury is at morning lows around 1.63% but falling from overnight highs of 1.67%.

Thursday, September 9, 2021 Following a day of weakness, U.S. stock futures are again looking modestly lower, pulling back along with declines in both Europe and Asia as the spread of the delta strain of Covid-19 continues to weigh on the U.S. economy. This morning, two airlines noted impact to revenues due to a decline in travel. Tech stocks in China fell after regulators again increased pressure on gaming companies for focusing solely on profit. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index declines -173 points to hold just above 30K, the Shanghai Index rose 17 points to 3,693 and the Hang Seng Index dropped over -600 points (2.3%) to settle at 25,716. In Europe, the German DAX is down about -40points to 15,570, while the FTSE 100 tumbles over -80 points (1.2%) to hold around the 7,000 level. Yesterday, Europe’s Stoxx 600 was down 1.0%, marks worst day in nearly 3 weeks as the German Dax down 1.4%, marks worst day since mid-July. Later this morning, we get the European Central Bank (ECB) rate decision at 7:45 AM and press conference at 8:30 AM where investors will look for clues about inflation and or asset tapering. The S&P 500 Index was lower for a third straight session Wednesday amid increasing concerns about economic growth and the ongoing spread of Covid. The Federal Reserve’s Beige Book report showed that economic growth downshifted slightly to a moderate pace from early July through August, largely due to a pullback in dining out, travel and tourism because of consumers’ safety fears. The dollar pared earlier gains, while Treasuries recovered Tuesday’s losses.

Its second-quarter earnings might just be the catalyst it needs to get moving again. Energy, Industrials and Materials More than 90% of oil production in the Gulf of Mexico shut down this weekend as Hurricane Ida plowed toward the Louisiana coast, threatening an area that is home to 17% of U.S. oil production, 5% of natural gas output and 15% of U.S. refining capacity. Exxon Mobil ($XOM) reportedly has cut production at its Baton Rouge refinery to 50% of its 520K bbl/day capacity Berry Global ($BERY) a positive mention in Barron’s saying the company makes plastic containers, but writing off Berry for plastics overlooks changing practices in the industry and ignores one of the sturdiest of materials stocks. Berry could narrow the gap between its 10 times 12-month forward earnings and Sealed Air’s ($SEE) and Amcor’s ($AMCR) 15 times, which would imply a 50% gain on multiple expansion alone, the author notes Astra Space Inc ($ASTR) shares fall over -20% after the test launch of its rocket LV0006 was ended prematurely about 2-and-a-half minutes after liftoff; said one of LV0006’s engines shut down less than a second after liftoff United Airlines Holdings Inc. ($UAL) jets like the one that lost an engine cover over Colorado in February aren’t expected to fly until early next year, as federal regulators weigh additional safeguards, people briefed on the matter said. United had hoped to resume flying the wide-body jets this summer. Dow Jones Financials Freshworks Inc. (FRSH) filed for an IPO in the U.S. as the customer relations management software firm looks to compete with larger rivals such as Salesforce.com (CRM). Freshworks wrote in an S-1 filing with the U.S. SEC that it aims to raise $100M Shares of U.S. insurance companies, energy firms, utilities and refiners may be active when trading starts Monday after Hurricane Ida slammed ashore, hitting the Louisiana coast with winds more powerful than Hurricane Katrina Healthcare Baxter International Inc.

Amazon.com Inc and smartphone maker Samsung Electronics Co Ltd have also lodged opposition to the deal with U.S. authorities, the newspaper reported. Barron’s noted China’s most well-known companies are starting to look cheap to some U.S. investors, though the likelihood of volatility means there will be ample opportunity to buy. Alibaba ($BABA), Tencent ($TCEHY) and Yum China ($YUMC) are among the ones to watch HP Inc. ($HPQ) and Dell ($DELL) look attractive and cheap, according to Barron’s. One peculiar outcome of the pandemic has been a newfound appreciation for the personal computer, with the pandemic underlining the need to upgrade to hardware capable of running videoconferencing and other essential software Globalstar ($GSAT) shares may move on a report that Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone 13 will use satellite connectivity so users can make calls and texts in areas without cellular coverage https://bit.ly/3sXY2mN
