There’s always something going on in the markets. When there are so many exciting things going on, we can’t choose and expound on one, right? Here’s a list of three huge things going on in the market this week and what they could mean for your investments.

Second Chances Are Abundant

    A lot of the time, Corporate America seems to resemble so many plot points of that of a soap opera. Elon Musk tweets about buying Twitter, they launch into serious conversations with the board, and Elon backs out unceremoniously. 

    There are also instances where Corporate America resembles a feel-good sports motivation story. It would have been reasonable to expect for example, that Adam Neumann would have never returned to Silicon Valley. Like Michael Oher in the Blind Side, he managed to find a way out of the dark places he was in and take his new venture, Flow, to new heights. Flow is a service for landlords of residential real estate, and it has already attracted the backing of Andreesen Horowitz. It invested about $350 million in Flow, valuing the company at $1 billion. 

    Despite Neumann’s botched history, Andreesen Horowitz continues to express support, even so far as publicly stating that they “love how repeat-founders build on past successes by growing from lessons learned.”

Serious Downturns Continue

    Last month, the commerce department reported that the economic growth in the United States fell for the second consecutive quarter. By many definitions, this indicates a sure sign of recession. However, the broader set of indicators adds so much more nuance to the situation. It allows us to see the state of the economy and measures of income, spending, and employment. 

    It showed us that while GDP was down in the first and second quarter, the index for people’s income (Gross Domestic Income) was up. If GDI continues to be positive, then we can see that the data backs up the claim that the United States is not in a recession. Or, at least, not yet.

The Path Ahead For Inflation

    Jerome Powell said last year that inflation would only be temporary. Well, it’s been a year, and it’s become clear that it’s not. Despite showing its first signs of easing last month, Powell and Fed are set to speak in Wyoming where the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City has held an annual symposium for decades. If you want an inkling of what to look for ahead, join in on that.
