Bills fans finding creative ways to watch Tuesday’s game

Bills fans finding creative ways to watch Tuesday’s game

LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WIVB) — Some Bills fans hoping to head down to Tennessee to cheer for the team in person changed their minds after the recent scheduling woes.

Although the Titans are allowing more than 8,600 fans inside Nissan Stadium, many decided against traveling after the what ifs and back and forth whether the game would still be on.

Nick Giammusso is the president of VIP Tix, an organization that allows people to buy and sell tickets to events like football games. He says just a few weeks ago people were contacting him to head to Nashville.

“It seems like just a few weeks ago we were getting a lot of calls, fielding a lot of calls, and then with the uncertainty of the date, things just kind of leveled off,” Giammusso told News 4.

But Bills fans still want to be able to watch the game while also staying safe, so they’re finding creative ways to cheer on the team.

People can head to Lockport and break out the charcoal grills and folding tables. The Transit Drive-In is allowing people to tailgate and stay for the game. Strict safety protocols will be in place, however, with parking at roughly 50-percent capacity.

“The game is going to be projected on the largest outdoor screen in New York State with the brightest projector in the world, and it’s going to be incredible,” said owner Rick Cohen. “All from the comfort of your car, or you can sit outside in lawn chairs, as long as you stay within your group and social distance, everyone will have a safe and fun time.”

Here are 3 things to watch for as earnings season kicks off amid continued economic recovery, according to LPL

NYSE trader

  • With earnings season set to officially kick off on Tuesday, LPL is out with a list of three things to watch for in company results.
  • LPL expects management teams to instill confidence in investors as an economic recovery from COVID-19 is well underway.
  • “Mostly better-than-expected economic data during the quarter is a positive indication of earnings surprises,” LPL noted.
  • Here’s what to watch for in the upcoming third quarter earnings season, according to LPL.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

Investors will have a lot to digest over the coming weeks as third quarter earnings season kicks off amid an ongoing economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to FactSet, consensus estimates call for a 20% year-over-year decline in earnings per share, but LPL expects that figure to be “quite a bit better,” according to a note on Monday.

Over the past three months, consensus estimates have been improving for third quarter earnings, rising by about 4%, LPL observed. 

This represents a “good sign that companies may be able to deliver more than the typical upside,” LPL said, adding that it expects management teams “to instill confidence” in investors that the earnings rebound might materialize. 

US economic data in recent months is also supportive of this season’s corporate earnings, LPL explained. “Mostly better-than-expected economic data during the quarter is a positive indication of earnings surprises,” LPL said.

Here are three things to watch out for this earnings season, according to LPL.

3 Things to Watch in the Stock Market This Week

3 Things to Watch in the Stock Market This Week

Stocks rose significantly last week as Wall Street tried to judge the likelihood that a new stimulus package aimed at supporting the U.S. economy would be passed. Both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 gained over 3%. That put the Dow back in positive territory for the year, while the S&P is up nearly 8%.

3 Things to Watch in the Stock Market This Week

Several big-name companies are set to make headlines over the next few trading days, including Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ), Bank of America (NYSE: BAC), and Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL). Below, we’ll look at the key trends that might send their stocks moving this week.

Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine update

Tuesday’s earnings report by Johnson & Johnson should answer some important questions for investors. The healthcare titan is in the running (along with several other drugmakers) for securing orders to produce a coronavirus vaccine that might draw unprecedented demand over the next year. CEO Alex Gorsky told shareholders back in July that the company has dedicated some of its best assets toward that goal, and we will hear more details on its progress this week.

In the meantime, Wall Street is expecting to see a modest sales decline for the fiscal third quarter: an improvement over the 11% sales slump it reported for Q2. Johnson & Johnson should announce sequential sales growth overall, but particularly in the medical device segment, which shrank while consumers around the world put off elective procedures during the outbreak’s initial phases. Returning stability in this division might persuade management to boost its 2020 forecast. Johnson & Johnson currently predicts roughly flat organic sales for the broader business this year.

Watch What The Market Is Telling You, Not The News

The stock market has had a crazy past two weeks after a very weak performance in September, where the Nasdaq Composite was down 5.2% and the S&P 500 lost 3.9% for the month. The stock market opened rough on Friday, October 2, with panicked overnight selling in the futures and stocks as traders reacted to President Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis.

However, despite the frantic end to the week, the overall market remained strong, as there were three times more advancing issues on the NYSE and than there were declining ones. That is why I concluded last weekend that “as long as the market turns higher by the end of the week [of October 5], the intermediate trend will stay bullish.”

However, there was another news-related market decline last week, as President Trump ordered an end to negotiations over a new economic relief package. From a high of 3431.56, the S&P 500 dropped to a low of 3354.54 in the last 90 minutes of trading on Tuesday. The market commentary after the close was not optimistic, as this was the S&P 500’s largest daily drop in almost two weeks.

However, a longer view is necessary to diagnose the current market’s trend. The above chart of the Spyder Trust (SPY) has data up through the close on Tuesday, October 6. As you can see, the SPY low from late September corresponded to SPY’s high from June high (line a), which shows that resistance level became support.

The advance/decline numbers help to give an even better picture. On Wednesday, September 30, the S&P 500 Advance/Decline closed above its downtrend (line b), which was a sign that the correction from early September was over. Then on Monday, October 5, the S&P 500 A/D line made a new

Roger Ferguson, CEO of TIAA

Roger Ferguson’s Wall Street career has been marked by a series of crises. Ferguson is the president and CEO of TIAA, the Fortune 100 financial giant that is a major provider of retirement services for teachers and employees at more than 15,000 nonprofits and other institutions. He is currently working with his team to ensure that the COVID-19 economic downturn doesn’t jeopardize TIAA’s $1.1 trillion in assets under management. The company is the No. 1 manager of farmland investments worldwide and one of the largest commercial real estate investors globally. Ferguson, 69, came to TIAA as CEO in 2008, amid another financial crisis; previously, he was the vice chairman of the Federal Reserve on 9/11, personally leading the central bank’s nimble response to that catastrophe.
