Wall street soars, investors countdown key Fed meeting.

Published

on

Investors appear to be buying what the Federal Reserve is selling at the minute, that is they’re shrugging off those pesky inflation concerns.

The Nasdaq and S&P 500 hit fresh record-highs ahead of the Fed meeting this week.

VFS Group’s James Whelan says there’s one key question in all of this.

“Will the Fed care about the market reaction? That’s the playbook for the next six months. Inflation, Fed response, market response to the Fed, and then will the market actually care? We’ve had four years of the Fed caring about everything the market did.”

The four years Whelan’s referring to are the Donald Trump years, where the former President often boasted of how strongly Wall Street performed.

But not everyone trusts the central bank right now, billionaire hedge funder Paul Tudor Jones is cynical.

“He (Tudor) called the stock market crash in ’87. History is on his side for calling big things. He’s saying if he doesn’t see any sort of commentary from the Fed this week, he’s going all-in on every inflationary hedge there is”

Expectations remain that the central bank will hold tight, and keep pace with their bond purchases.

James King of AFEX says the amount of stimulus that’s entered the market over the last 18 months is extraordinary.

“The last 18 months or so there’s been a meteoric rise in the Fed’s balance sheet. From four trillion dollars to almost eight trillion dollars in an 18 month period”

The next update is due Wednesday US time, and all investors will be watching.

Gen Z’s financial boom living with parents comes with baggage

Published

on

In an era marked by sky-high housing costs, many members of Generation Z are refusing to leave home.

While this arrangement offers financial relief in the form of reduced rent, the hidden costs, both emotional and financial, are beginning to surface.

Business Insider, in an analysis of recent surveys and personal accounts, reveals that Gen Z, defined as those born after 1996 by the Pew Research Center, faces less societal stigma for living at home than previous generations, particularly millennials.

However, this lack of criticism comes with its own set of challenges that can impact young adults in profound ways.

Financial benefits

While the prospect of saving money by living with family may seem appealing, the reality is often more complicated.

Beyond the social limitations, research indicates that living at home may have adverse effects on mental health.

Studies have shown a correlation between returning to the parental home and increased depressive symptoms, as well as heightened familial tensions.

These emotional tolls can outweigh the financial benefits, casting doubt on the long-term sustainability of the arrangement.

How will Disney’s AI strategy boost shares?

Published

on

Activist investor Blackwells has called upon Disney to implement a robust artificial intelligence strategy aimed at bolstering the company’s shares.

“Disney must produce an artificial intelligence strategy, and share elements of that strategy with its shareholders.”, said Blackwells in a recent presentation.

New groove

Blackwells, known for pushing corporations to adopt innovative approaches, contends that a well-crafted AI strategy could drive shareholder value and position Disney for sustained success in the entertainment landscape.

The activist investor emphasises that harnessing the power of AI could optimise content creation, enhance customer experiences, and streamline operational efficiency within Disney.

Disney’s response

The company opposed the suggestion to replace board members with activists’ nominees, emphasising the potential disruption to ongoing progress.

Additionally, Disney disagreed with Blackwells’ proposal to spin off land and hotels into a real estate investment trust, arguing it reflected a misunderstanding of the synergies within its businesses.

Published

on

Ryanair, one of Europe’s leading low-cost airlines, is grappling with the possibility of scaling back its summer flight schedule due to ongoing delays in the delivery of Boeing aircraft.

The airline had initially anticipated a boost in its fleet with the arrival of new Boeing planes, enabling an expansion of routes and increased passenger capacity.

However, prolonged delays in the manufacturing and delivery process have cast a shadow over these plans.

Growing pains

The airline industry, already navigating challenges posed by the global pandemic, now confronts the additional hurdle of supply chain disruptions impacting major aircraft manufacturers.

Ryanair’s dependence on Boeing for its fleet expansion has made it particularly vulnerable to these delays.

As the summer travel season approaches, the airline faces the tough decision of either operating with a reduced fleet or adjusting its schedule, potentially impacting travel plans for passengers.
