Boston Beer stock slips ahead of earnings after MKM analyst warns revenue could miss on seltzer weakness #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
Shares of Boston Beer Co. eased 0.2% in afternoon trading Wednesday, a day before the beer brewer was scheduled to report second-quarter results. MKM Partners analyst Bill Kirk cut his price target on the stock to 4 from ,204, while reiterating his neutral rating, ahead of the earnings report. "With a slowing seltzer category and underwhelming on-premise contribution, we believe that Boston Beer's 2Q is at risk for a topline miss and that forward guidance needs to be cut," Kirk wrote in a note to clients. Boston Beer is slated to report earnings after Thursday's closing bell. The FactSet consensus for second-quarter earnings per share is .60 and for revenue is 7.6 million. For full-year 2021, the company said it expects adjusted EPS of between .00 and .00, while the FactSet revenue consensus is .50 billion. The stock has tumbled 25.5% over the past three months, while the S&P 500 has tacked on 4.3%.

Treasury to run out of cash to pay bills in October or November absent debt-limit hike, CBO says #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
The Treasury Department will probably run out of cash and be unable to make usual payments in October or November absent an increase in the U.S. debt limit, the Congressional Budget Office predicted Wednesday. The borrowing limit is suspended through July 31, and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has previously warned that so-called extraordinary measures her department uses to keep paying obligations may not last long past the end of July. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has suggested Democrats would need to raise the limit on their own, something Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer called "shameless, cynical and totally political." The White House on Tuesday said President Joe Biden expects Congress to raise the limit.

Didi shares slide 3.3% premarket on report Chinese government mulling serious penalties for U.S. IPO #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
Shares of Chinese ride-sharing company Didi Global Inc. fell 3.3% in premarket trade Thursday, after Bloomberg reported that Chinese regulators are considering serious penalties for the company after its U.S. initial public offering in June, citing people familiar with the matter. Didi raised .4 billion in the deal, which came despite pushback from China's cyberspace administration. The decision to push ahead with the deal is being viewed as a challenge to Beijing's authority, the people told Bloomberg. Officials from that agency, the Ministry of Public Security, the Ministry of State Security, the Ministry of Natural Resources, along with tax, transport and antitrust regulators, have launched an investigation at the company's offices. The penalties under consideration include a fine, suspension of some operations or the introduction of a state-owned investor. But the company may also be forced to delist its U.S. shares, although it is unclear how that might happen. The Chinese government started a crackdown on its big tech giants last year, forcing Alibaba Founder Jack Ma's Ant Group Co. to pull what would have been the world's biggest-ever IPO.

Southwest Airlines swings to Q2 profit thanks to PSP program as revenue tops estimates #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
Southwest Airlines Co. said Thursday it had net income of 8 million, or 57 cents a share, in the second quarter, after a loss of 5 million, or .63 a share, in the year-earlier period, when travel stalled during the global pandemic. The profit was driven by a 4 million offset of salaries and other benefits related to the receipt of proceeds from the Payroll Support Program, a federal relief program for airlines. Excluding that offset, the company had an adjusted loss of 35 cents a share, wider than the 23 cents loss consensus estimate of FactSet analysts. Revenue rose to .008 billion from .008 billion, topping the .939 billion FactSet consensus. "Second quarter 2021 marked an important milestone in the pandemic recovery as leisure travel demand surged," Chief Executive Gary C. Kelly said in a statement. The company generated net income in June, to mark its first monthly profit without the benefit of temporary salary and benefit relief since the start of the pandemic, he said. The rapid ramp-up in travel demand has proved a challenge and the company is now focused on bring back workers and improving operations. Jet fuel prices are also significantly higher and expected to remain so in the third quarter. "To support the return of flight activity, we expect to recall the vast majority of our Employees early from voluntary time-off by the end of third quarter 2021, which is expected to reduce our prior forecasted savings from voluntary leave programs beyond second quarter 2021," said Kelly. The company's load factor stood at 82.9% in the second quarter, while available seat miles were up 86.8%. The company is expecting capacity to rise 49% in the third quarter as travel demand continues to improve. Shares were down 1% premarket, but have gained 14% in the year to date, while the U.S. Global JETS ETF has gained 4% and the S&P 500 has gained 16%.

Biogen's beats on earnings, says it's also brought in million in sales of Alzheimer's drug #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
Shares of Biogen gained 1.6% in premarket trading on Thursday after the company beat expectations for the second quarter and disclosed that it's already sold million of its new, controversial Alzheimer's disease drug. Biogen had earnings of 8.5 million, or .99 per share, in the second quarter of 2021, compared to .5 billion, or .59 per share, in the same quarter a year ago. Adjusted EPS were .68, against a FactSet consensus of .55. Revenue was .7 billion for the quarter, down from .7 billion in the second quarter of 2020. The FactSet consensus was .6 billion. Biogen cited a 24% decline of revenue in its multiple sclerosis portfolio for the quarter; Tecfidera sales, for example, tumbled to 8.5 million for the quarter, compared with .19 billion in the same quarter a year ago. Biogen said its recently approved Alzheimer's drug Aduhelm brought in million in revenue during the quarter even as questions persist about the regulatory process that led to approval. The company updated its guidance for the year, now saying it expects revenue of .65 billion to .85 billion, instead of .45 billion to .75 billion. Biogen's stock is up 31.9% so far this year, while the broader S&P 500 is up 15.1%.

ECB tweaks forward guidance in line with new, symmetric inflation target #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
The European Central Bank, as expected, left interest rates and its program of asset purchases unchanged Thursday, while tweaking its forward guidance on policy to put it in line with its newly adopted inflation target. The ECB earlier this month completed a strategic review, adopting a symmetric 2% inflation target in place of its previous aim of keeping inflation near but just below 2%. In a statement following its policy meeting, the Governing Council said it expects "key ECB interest rates to remain at their present or lower levels until it sees inflation reaching two per cent well ahead of the end of its projection horizon and durably for the rest of the projection horizon, and it judges that realized progress in underlying inflation is sufficiently advanced to be consistent with inflation stabilizing at 2% over the medium term." The ECB said this "may also imply a transitory period in which inflation is moderately above target."

Coronavirus tally: Global cases of COVID-19 top 192 million as Biden says children under 12 may soon be approved for shots #FinanceUSA #StockMarketNEWS
The global tally for the coronavirus-borne illness climbed above 192 million on Thursday, while the death toll climbed above 4.1 million, according to data aggregated by Johns Hopkins University. The U.S. leads the world with a total of 34.2 million cases and in deaths with 609,862 as the highly infectious delta variant continues to spread fast, especially in states with low vaccination rates. President Joe Biden expressed frustration Wednesday over the slowing COVID-19 vaccination rate in the U.S. and pleaded that it's "gigantically important" for Americans to step up and get inoculated against the virus as it surges once again, the AP reported. Biden also said he expects that children under 12 will be approved for shots in the coming months.
India is second by cases at 31.3 million and third by deaths at 418,987, according to its official numbers, which are expected to be undercounted.
Brazil is second in deaths at 545,604 but is third in cases at 19.5 million. Mexico has fourth-highest death toll at 237,207 but has recorded just 2.7 million cases, according to its official numbers. In Europe, Russia continues to pull ahead of the U.K. by deaths at 149,012, while the U.K. has 129,182, making Russia the country with the fifth-highest death toll in the world and highest in Europe. The U.K. fully reopened its economy on Monday against the advice of healthcare experts, who are concerned at the continued rapid spread of cases there that is forcing many to isolate and quarantine.
