“Jobless claims: Another 965,000 Americans filed new unemployment claims last week.

New weekly unemployment claims spiked far more than expected last week to reach a five-month high, as the coronavirus pandemic and stay-in-place orders weighed heavily on the labor market.

The U.S. Department of Labor released its weekly report on new jobless claims Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m. ET. Here were the main results in the report, compared to consensus estimates compiled by Bloomberg:

Initial jobless claims, week ended Jan. 9: 965,000 vs. 789,000 expected and a revised 784,000 during the prior week

Continuing claims, week ended Jan. 2: 5.271 million vs. 5.000 million expected and 5.072 million during the prior week

At 965,000, new jobless claims hit the highest level since August, ending what had been a tentative start of a downward trend in initial claims.”

“December jobs report: Payrolls drop for the first time since April, unemployment rate steadies at 6.7%.

U.S. job growth turned negative for the first time since April in the final month of 2020, as the pandemic that rocked the economy over the past year dealt yet another blow to the labor market.

The Labor Department released its December jobs report Friday morning at 8:30 a.m. ET. Here were the main results from the report, compared to consensus estimates compiled by Bloomberg:

Change in non-farm payrolls: -140,000 vs. +50,000 expected and a revised +336,000 in November

Unemployment rate: 6.7% vs. 6.8% expected and 6.7% in November

Average hourly earnings, month-over-month: 0.8% vs. 0.2% expected and 0.3% in November

Average hourly earnings, year-over-year: 5.1% vs. 4.5% expected and 4.4% in November

December’s drop in payrolls widened the employment deficit in the labor market from before the pandemic, bringing the economy still more than 9.8 million payrolls short of its February levels. This came even as the payroll gains for each of October and November were upwardly revised by a combined 135,000.

Heading into Friday’s report, consensus economists had braced for a further deceleration in job growth at the end of the year, with employment trends weakening as new virus-related restrictions dampened employment and businesses awaited support from Congress’s latest stimulus package.”

Breaking stock market news. “October jobs report: Economy added 638,000 jobs as unemployment rate fell to 6.9%.

The Labor Department’s October jobs report offered fresh signs of a slowing economic recovery in the U.S., with the number of jobs added back and the pace of improvement in the unemployment rate each decelerating considerably from earlier this year. Still, the increase in non-farm payrolls and change in the unemployment rate were each better than economists feared for the month.

The Department of Labor released its monthly non-farm payrolls report Friday at 8:30 a.m. ET. Here were the main results from the report, compared to consensus estimates compiled by Bloomberg:

Non-farm payrolls: 638,000 vs. +580,000 expected and a revised +672,000 in September

Unemployment rate: 6.9% vs. 7.6% expected and 7.9% in September

Average hourly earnings, month-over-month: 0.1% vs. 0.2% expected and 0.1% in September

Average hourly earning, year-over-year: 4.5% vs. 4.5% expected and a revised 4.6% in September

Friday’s jobs report also saw revisions to the last couple months’ worth of payrolls. August employment was upwardly revised to see a gain of 4,000 jobs to 1.493 million, and the change for September was revised up by 11,000 to 672,000.”

“Stocks closed broadly lower on Wall Street Monday as markets tumbled worldwide on worries about the pandemic’s economic pain.

The S&P 500 ended with its fourth-straight loss, though a last-hour rally helped trim its decline by more than half. Industrial, health care and financial stocks accounted for much of the selling. Technology stocks recovered from an early slide to notch a gain.

The selling followed a slide in European stocks on the possibility of tougher restrictions to stem rising coronavirus counts.

The losses were widespread, with almost all the stocks in the S&P 500 lower. The S&P 500 fell 38.41 points, or 1.2%, to 3,281.06.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 509.72 points, or 1.8%, to 27,147.70, and the Nasdaq composite lost 14.48 points, or 0.1%, to 10,778.80. In another sign of the increased worry, the yield on the 10-year Treasury fell to 0.65% from 0.69% late Friday.”
