U.S. Economic Growth Slows to 1.6%
The latest government report reveals that U.S. economic growth fell below 2 percent in the first quarter of the year, marking a notable decline from the previous quarter's strong 4.9 percent growth. This dip, below economists' forecasts, may offer a silver lining for the Federal Reserve, which aims for a robust yet stable economy. Despite inflation ticking up slightly to 3.5 percent year-over-year in March, it remains a concern, especially as it surpasses the central bank's 2 percent target. The recent economic data has extended the Fed's window to potentially cut borrowing costs, with the Federal Open Market Committee set to meet soon to assess whether to adjust rates. Read more

Tesla and Meta Prioritize AI Business in Recent Financial Reports
Tesla's earnings took a notable hit with a 47% decline compared to the previous year, coupled with a 9% drop in revenue to $21.3 billion, marking its largest downturn since 2012 and falling short of expectations.

This growth trajectory is underpinned by Meta's emphasis on online advertising and AI initiatives, driving anticipation among investors, reflected in the recent climb of Meta's stock. Read more

While everyday users and creators may not notice immediate changes, ByteDance has a 12-month window to divest its shares. Failure to comply would render support for TikTok illegal, compelling web-hosting services like Google and Apple app stores to remove the platform. Read more

Here’s Why High Interest Rates Haven’t Caused a U.S. Recession

America’s economy remains remarkably solid, despite the high interest rates. Economists say that’s partly due to the ultra-low mortgage rates that homeowners locked in during the pandemic, when the Fed slashed rates almost to zero, along with the generally healthy household finances of many Americans in recent years.

Bid Price

The term "bid" refers to the highest price a buyer will pay to buy a specified number of shares of a stock at any given time.  The term ask refers to the lowest price at which a seller will sell the stock. The bid price will almost always be lower than the ask or “offer,” price.  The difference between the bid price and the ask price is called the "spread."
