After backlash, New York Times admits it should not have run Tom Cotton op-ed
The New York Times admitted Thursday it erred in publishing an op-ed column by Sen. Tom Cotton calling for the military to quell protests. The hawkish, one-sided column published Wednesday outraged many, including staff members, many of whom tweeted in solidarity : "Running this puts black @nytimes staff in danger." In a statement late Thursday, the Times said Cotton's piece did not meet its standards, though it did not explain exactly why it was published. "We've examined the piece and the process leading up to its publication. This review made clear that a rushed editorial process led to the publication of an Op-Ed that did not meet our standards. As a result, we're planning to examine both short term and long term changes, to include expanding our fact checking operation and reducing the number of Op-Eds we publish." A separate report by the Times late Thursday said opinion-page editor James Bennet had not read the column before publication.read more
Dow futures struggle for direction ahead of week's final test--a Friday jobs report where unemployment could recall 'Great Depression'
U.S. stock-index futures were bouncing around in thin trade Thursday evening, with investors looking toward a labor-market report that could reflect soaring unemployment even as the data hints at a decelerating pace of job losses in the coronavirus-stricken economy. Futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average were off 16 points, or less than 0.1%, at 26,235, those for the S&P 500 index were edging down less than 0.1% at 3,109.25, while Nasdaq-100 futures ticked up by about 0.1% at 9,635.50. Economists predict the official unemployment rate will climb to 19% in May, the MarketWatch survey shows, though some think it could approach as high as 25% unofficially. At that level it could approach the worst levels since the Great Depression. Another 7.25 million U.S. jobs may have disappeared in May, after the loss of more than 20 million in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the partial reopening of businesses in the past few weeks suggests the damage to the economy may be mostly done--for now. Thus far, investors have focused on reopenings and hope that the economy will recover soon if another outbreak doesn't hit the U.S. Director of the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield testifying Thursday in front of the House Appropriations Committee said that he is "very concerned" that Americans are becoming too lax about the dangers of the contagion. The disease has infected 6.5 million people world-wide, and 1.8 million in the U.S., while nearly 390,000 people have died from the the virus that originated in Wuhan, China in December, according to data from Johns Hopkins University as of Thursday night.read more
GameStop sees quarterly sales off by at least a third because of coronavirus
GameStop Corp. said late Thursday it expects quarterly sales to drop by as much as a third and that a majority of its stores were closed in March. The videogame retailer said it expects global sales to decline from "33% to 35% from $1.5 billion in the prior year fiscal quarter," which would result in revenue of $1.01 billion to $1.04 billion. Analysts surveyed by FactSet expect revenue of $1.13 billion. GameStop also expects same-store sales for the quarter to drop about 30% to 31%, while analysts had forecast a decline of 26.4%. The company said that about 76% of its international stores were closed temporarily in March, and that all of its U.S. locations were closed in March with 65% of those offering curbside pick-up service. "Despite the disruption caused by the pandemic, we are pleased to see our strategic investments in omnichannel capabilities allow us to deliver on the increased demand for gaming, entertainment and remote work products," said George Sherman, GameStop chief executive, in a statement. "Our Buy Online Pickup in Store capabilities enabled many of our stores to safely open for contactless curbside pickup." Shares of GameStop rose 1.8% after hours, following a 0.7% rise to close the regular session at $4.47.read more
La-Z-Boy to lay off 850 people, close Mississippi plant
La-Z-Boy Inc. said late Thursday it will lay off about 10% of its workforce, or 850 employees, across its business and including an upholstery factory in Mississippi. Production will be shifted to available capacity at the company's plants in Tennessee, Missouri, and Arkansas, La-Z-Boy said. The Mississippi plant, built in 1960, employs about 300 people and accounts for about 10% of the company's upholstery production as well as making the company's recliners and other furniture. The coronavirus pandemic "has had a far-reaching impact," Chief Executive Kurt L. Darrow said in a statement. The company "responded quickly" and as a result "we are confident we will emerge from the crisis with strength and remain a leader in the industry," Darrow said. " Since restarting production at the majority of our plants at the end of April, we have steadily increased production and continue to bring back more employees to meet demand." It is appropriate, however, to "right size" the business, Darrow said. "Still, these are difficult decisions to make and we deeply regret the impact they will have on those employees who are affected." La-Z-Boy expects to spend about $5 million to $7 million in fiscal 2021 in pre-tax charges related to these moves. The company is slated to report fiscal 2020 fourth-quarter and full-year results on June 23 after the bell.read more
