“No One Has Ever Seen This Before”: With Companies And Analysts Flying Blind, Q1 Earnings Massacres Loom

“No One Has Ever Seen This Before”: With Companies And Analysts Flying Blind, Q1 Earnings Massacres Loom

It’s appearing as though Wall Street hasn’t quite prepared for what is coming down the pipeline, as companies across the board prepare to blindside analysts with upcoming earnings reports. 

Walgreens, this morning, was a perfect example. Everyone believed they were a company that was coronavirus-proof, yet the stock fell after the company admitted it was still seeing decreasing foot traffic – even after the company beat its earnings estimates.

“We Have No Money”: Coronavirus Slams State Taxes

Authored by Sophie Quinton of the Pew Trust,

Economists who advise the Colorado legislature told lawmakers in mid-March to expect a roughly $800 million revenue decline for the next fiscal year as people travel and dine out less during the coronavirus pandemic. That estimate already looks far too optimistic.

“The forecast that we released in March — we weren’t imagining the world that we’re living in right now,” said Kate Watkins, chief economist for the Legislative Council Staff, the nonpartisan research arm of the Colorado General Assembly. read more

CCP Virus Revelations Cast Suspicion on China’s ‘Unrestricted Warfare’ Efforts

Commentary

There is no evidence to prove how the CCP virus, commonly known as the novel coronavirus, was unleashed on the world. But with 900 million people under pandemic lockdowns, China is set to wage “unrestricted warfare” to economically and militarily benefit from the pain of Western nations.

Quit Trying to Make Americans Like Each Other

F.H. Buckley’s newest work, American Secession: The Looming Threat of National Breakup, is probably the most important non-fiction books of 2020. Written during the last year when Americans were more divided at any time in their national history since the Civil War, Buckley argues that neither “Blue” America nor “Red” America, to use former President Barack Obama’s postulation from 2004, can coexist. According to Buckley, that is all right. We Americans have a mechanism — nullification — for coexisting peacefully in this massive country without the need to take up arms against those with whom we disagree. Under nullification, the immense powers of the central government are distributed (or, returned, as my Libertarian friends would argue) to the state and local authorities without the need for one part of America violently separating away from the other as happened during the Civil War. read more
