    One of the most predictable indicators of whether a president is reelected, the strength of the economy in the second quarter of the election year, is offering a grim outlook for President Trump's prospects in November. Because of the persistence of the coronavirus pandemic, Mr. Trump is facing the greatest economic downturn since the Great Depression.

    By Nick Carey and Ben Klayman Jul 30 (.) – Ford Motor Co He said Thursday that he expects to post an annual loss, but said he should have enough cash on hand for the rest of 2020 even if demand falls further or the COVID-19 pandemic forces more vehicle assembly plants to close. Ford’s announcements became known when the company posted a quarterly profit on an investment by Volkswagen AG on its Argo autonomous driving unit, which more than made up for the loss caused by a coronavirus-induced production shutdown. Results and better-than-expected earnings prospects pushed Ford shares up 2.5% in post-close Wall Street trading. “Solid execution allowed us to deliver much better financial results than we had hoped for just three months ago,” Chief Executive Jim Hackett said in a conference call with analysts. German automaker VW closed its $ 2.6 billion investment in Argo last month, which...

But many of the best performers were really bounce backs from the doldrums of March, when the market hit bottom during the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

That's the good news. The bad news: Wall Street is as clueless as it has ever been on what earnings will look like. I'm not talking about the third and fourth quarter. The second quarter is nearly over, and analysts still are clueless about what earnings companies will be reporting. And it's likely the confusion will continue into the second half of the year.A quarter of extremes in earnings estimatesWith 40% of the S&P 500 companies declining to provide guidance, the dispersion between analysts estimates has rarely been wider. Refinitiv is still projecting about a 43% drop in second quarter earnings, the worst since...
    The Independent Authority for Fiscal Responsibility (AIReF) has revised its tool for predicting the very short-term economic evolution of GDP and employment (MiPred) and estimates a 14.1% drop in the Spanish economy in the second quarter of the year. This forecast of GDP decline between April and June, with data from June 18, is in line with the most severe scenario of the estimates collected in May in the report on the update of the stability program, although is less than the expected 18.4% drop in the forecast of ten days before. This improvement is due to the incorporation of information relating to months after March and April after the Tax Authority has updated its MiPred model to adapt it to the new situation of uncertainty, since the emergence of Covid-19 has temporarily altered the estimation exercises of economic activity. Among some of the factors, the apparent consumption of cement...
