U.S. Futures Push Higher Amid Stimulus Talks: Markets Wrap
(Bloomberg) -- Asian stocks rose and U.S. futures extended overnight gains amid optimism about progress on stimulus talks in Washington. Treasuries and the dollar retreated.Shares climbed in Japan, Hong Kong and South Korea, and fluctuated in Australia. S&P 500 contracts edged higher after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she remains hopeful of a deal before the election. The gauge bounced back from Monday's selloff on Tuesday. Tech shares mostly shook off the U.S. Justice Department's decision to sue Google for allegedly abusing its power. Netflix Inc. plunged in late trading after it missed Wall Street estimates.Elsewhere, Treasuries continued to decline, with the 10-year yield rising above 0.8%. Oil slipped. The yuan climbed to the strongest since July 2018 and copper hit its highest in more than two years. In the latest developments, Pelosi said Tuesday she's hopeful for a stimulus agreement this week, which would be bigger, better and retroactive. Still, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has warned the White House against a bigger Pelosi-led deal before Nov. 3. The administration's offer is now $1.88 trillion, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said on CNBC. Pelosi has pushed for $2.2 trillion along with a number of requirements for how the money should be deployed.A rally built on stimulus hopes has investors weighing the chances of striking a deal against speculation that the looming election will prove too much of a hurdle to overcome. Yet with Federal Reserve policy makers urging for more fisca

Netflix Slides After Results Suggest Pandemic Boom Is Waning
(Bloomberg) -- Netflix Inc. tumbled in late trading after missing Wall Street's estimates for subscribers, renewing doubts about its ability to maintain growth as pandemic lockdowns go away and competition intensifies.The world's largest paid streaming service added just 2.2 million new subscribers in the third quarter, well short of the 3.32 million predicted by analysts, as well as the company's own more conservative projection. Netflix also predicted that it will sign up 6 million new subscribers this period, below the 6.54 million Wall Street estimate.Netflix added 25.9 million customers in the first half of the year, its strongest start ever. Yet throughout the pandemic, the company has warned that the subscriber boom wouldn't last -- and in fact, that its surge in new customers could suppress growth in the future."We expected and knew there would be some level of slowdown," Chief Financial Officer Spencer Neumann said during a video discussion after the results were released.But predicting subscriber growth in such a climate has proved trickier than ever. While Netflix's forecasts for the second quarter proved too cautious, its outlook for the third quarter was too rosy.Many viewers -- especially in Europe and Asia -- have returned to something closer to normal day-to-day life, reducing the amount of time they can spend on Netflix binges. And pro sports have returned to Americans' TV screens. All of that hampered subscriber gains last quarter, with growth suffering in all three regions."It'

Pelosi, Mnuchin Move Closer to Stimulus Deal Amid Senate Doubts
(Bloomberg) -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday she's hopeful for a stimulus agreement this week, which would be crucial to getting a bill passed by Election Day, although Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has warned the White House against a bigger Pelosi-led deal before Nov. 3."That's the plan. That's what I would hope," Pelosi said about reaching a compromise this week. She spoke to reporters after her latest call with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin Tuesday.The White House also expressed some optimism on progress. Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said on CNBC that "everybody is working real hard" to get an agreement by the weekend, although he cautioned that there are still some outstanding issues. "I want to stress: We're not just down to a difference of language and a few dollars," Meadows said. "We still have a ways to go."Even if remaining differences can be bridged, Senate Republicans remain a key roadblock, as many oppose a bill on the scale of what's now under negotiation. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has warned the White House not to rush into an agreement before the election, according to a person familiar with the matter.The administration's offer has increased to $1.88 trillion, Meadows said. Pelosi is pushing for $2.2 trillion, while President Donald Trump reiterated Tuesday he could be willing to go even bigger.Stocks RoiledThe twists and turns of the stimulus talks have been roiling equities. The S&P 500 Index slumped 1.6% Monday, then climbed as much as 1.5% Tuesday

Shale Oil M&A Accelerates With Pioneer Strike to Buy Out Parsley
(Bloomberg) -- The series of mergers reshaping the beleaguered U.S. shale oil industry accelerated Tuesday when Pioneer Natural Resources Co. agreed to buy Parsley Energy Inc. for $4.5 billion in stock, creating one of the largest producers in the Permian Basin.The deal came a day after ConocoPhillips announced its $9.7 billion takeover of Concho Resources Inc. and underscores the view that oil companies must be big to survive in a new, pandemic-maligned world that's oversupplied with crude. Earlier this month Chevron Corp. completed its takeover of Noble Energy Inc., while Devon Energy agreed to merge with shale driller WPX in late September.The sector is in full-on merger mode in response to oil prices that have been stuck at around $40 a barrel in recent months after the Covid-19 pandemic hit global demand. While that's put pressure on energy companies around the world, the pain is most severe in U.S. shale. The industry is weighed down by massive debts, the result of years of break-neck expansion that made America the largest crude producer but also disappointed investors with poor returns.Energy has slumped to less than 2% of the S&P 500 Index, down from more than 11% a decade ago, even as the wider market rose to record levels."There's only going to be three or four independents that are investable by shareholders" after the recent market rout, Pioneer Chief Executive Officer Scott Sheffield said on a conference call with analysts. The "real survivors" will be Pioneer-Parsley, EOG Resource
