Representative image The Federal Reserve's determination to raise interest rates until it squashes the highest inflation in decades is darkening the outlook across Wall Street, as U.S. stocks stand on the cusp of a bear market and warnings of a recession grow louder. At issue is the so-called Fed put, or investors’ belief that the Fed will take action if stocks fall too deeply, even though it has no mandate to maintain asset prices. One oft-cited example of the phenomenon, which is named after a hedging derivative used to protect against market falls, occurred when the Fed halted a rate hiking cycle in early 2019 after a stock market tantrum. Also Read: Global stocks rebound despite unease over economy; dollar gains This time around, the Fed’s insistence that it will raise rates as high as needed to tame surging inflation has bolstered the argument that policymakers will be less sensitive to market volatility - threatening more pain for investors. read more A recent … [Read more...] about As bear market looms, battered Wall Street seeks elusive ‘Fed put’

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Peloton’s stock has seen another sell-off, falling by around 40% over the last month, as surging inflation, rising interest rates, and the prospect of a recession continued to turn investors away from growth stocks and pandemic favorites. Moreover, Peloton’s Q3 FY’22 earnings were weaker than expected, with revenue declining to $964.3 million from $1.26 billion a year ago, as demand for at-home fitness equipment cooled considerably. This marked Peloton’s first year-over-year revenue decline since it went public. Peloton’s poor planning didn’t help either, as inventory has piled up, eating into the company’s cash just as sales fell. Net losses also widened to $2.27 per share, from about $0.03 a year earlier. Things are expected to remain tough over Q4 FY’22 as well, with the company projecting revenue of between $675 million and $700 million, well below consensus estimates, marking a decline of as much as 29% from the same quarter … [Read more...] about Peloton Stock Is Cheap Given Its Solid Subscription Business
