3 recovery killers that will stymie your post-COVID comeback

By Dr. Evans Baiya6 minute Read

The business world has been significantly disrupted by the pandemic. During situations of macro disruption, most people look for ways to first survive and eventually emerge from the circumstances stronger and better. As they do this, most leaders attempt to re-create past success—to go back to what life and business were like pre-disruption. 

Few people look forward with excitement to the unpredictable, unknown future while living through the dissonance caused by ongoing disruptions. Yet because of what we have collectively experienced, there is no going back to the old state of things. Business environments are changing constantly. True business recovery is forward moving, embracing today’s reality and finding ways to thrive within it. The best measure of successful negotiation of disruption is how strongly you recover.

There are plenty of approaches to business recovery, but the key to success is avoiding the obstacles

Big Comeback For Apple, Netflix, And Other Big Tech Names Softens Some Of The Pain

 A rally in the wilting Tech sector prevented a complete Monday washout. Still, at the end of the day, the week is off to a rough start as concerns about the virus, politics, and banks ganged up on most of Wall Street.

That turnaround in Tech does raise some hopes going into Tuesday. Consider keeping an eye on futures trading overnight to get a sense of whether any of that strength can flow into tomorrow’s open.

Having the Nasdaq (COMP) go positive at one point in the last few minutes was quite a statement, even if COMP couldn’t hold those gains at the close. The area the market depended on so much during the long rally (Tech) came back, with stocks like Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), Netflix Inc (NASDAQ: NFLX), QUALCOMM, Inc. (NASDAQ: QCOM), and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) all having nice days. 

On the other end, Financials continue to

‘Mass Effect’ Making A Comeback? Listing Leak Suggests Franchise Return And Surprise Platform

BioWare’s beloved “Mass Effect” franchise has been firmly dormant since 2017’s “Mass Effect: Andromeda” left a bad taste in the mouths of most fans. Now, a retail listing may have just revealed the series’ return, and in a way that should excite longtime gamers.

In a since-deleted listing from Wednesday, the Portuguese retailer Gaming Replay appeared to reveal “Mass Effect Trilogy,” a collection of the first three games in the series, according to several outlets reports. The site listed the re-release for PS4, Xbox One, and unexpectedly, Nintendo Switch.

While not surprising from a technical perspective – as the Switch would be more than capable of handling these titles – it is unique to see the franchise return to Nintendo consoles, should the listing be true. The series only graced a Nintendo system once, when “Mass Effect 3” made its way to the Wii U in 2012.

The listing included

Fun Belt upest; Big Ten comeback?

Published 9:53 p.m. ET Sept. 12, 2020 | Updated 1:56 a.m. ET Sept. 13, 2020

On the first Saturday of the college football season with Power Five conference teams playing, the Sun Belt was the star and the Big Ten grabbed headlines without even playing.

What figures to be at best a weird season as teams try to navigate the pandemic ramped up Saturday with 19 games, including a bunch involving the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Big 12.

The Power Five conferences all modified their schedules for this season to deal with the inevitable disruptions caused by COVID-19.

Good call. Three Big 12 teams had their openers this weekend postponed, including No. 15 Oklahoma State. In the ACC, four hours before the first conference’s first game of the season, it was announced that next week’s Virginia-Virginia Tech game was being postponed.

Welcome to 2020, folks. When the games

Dollar Bulls Stage a Comeback

The former king of the currency markets is on a mission to reclaim dominance, appreciating across the board after a sell-off in stock markets prompted investors to rush towards safe-haven destinations. Dollar bulls seem to be deriving strength from not only concerns over a possible delay in the Covid-19 vaccine but the recent U.S jobs report showing a decline in the U.S unemployment rate and jump in U.S Treasury yields.

With the Dollar Index trading at levels not seen in four weeks around 93.60 and appreciating over 1.5% since the start of September, are bulls back in the game?

Looking at the technical picture, a rebound may be on the cards on the weekly timeframe following the solid move above 93.00. A weekly close beyond this point could suggest an incline towards 94.00 and 96.00 in the medium term. If 94.00 proves to be reliable resistance, the DXY may find

The stock market shakeout is likely not over yet, even with Friday’s comeback

The tech wreck is probably not over, despite Friday’s market comeback. 

Analysts expect the shakeout in stocks to continue after the long Labor Day weekend, especially in technology names and the Nasdaq, areas of the market that notched the sharpest gains.

After August’s 7% gain in the S&P 500, stocks started September strong, and then just as quickly rolled over. The Nasdaq lost 5% Thursday and was down sharply Friday but pared losses to decline 1.5%. The S&P 500 was down about 2.3% for the week, even after a 3.5% loss Thursday.

“I think this is a good wake-up call and a reminder that there are risks out there,” said Leo Grohowski, chief investment officer at BNY Mellon Wealth Management. “In August, we did take a little
