Futures tumble after the Biden-McCarthy meeting

The Dow Jones Industrial Average briefly fell 150 points on Tuesday after President Joe Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy failed to reach an agreement in their recent debt ceiling debates. Meanwhile, a major retailer Louie (LOW) rose even after the company cut its full-year forecast.


Before Monday night’s meeting, Biden stuck to a cautiously optimistic tone, saying, “We still have some disagreements but I think we may be able to get where we need to go. We both know we have a huge responsibility.”

But they failed to reach an agreement to raise the debt ceiling, as talks centered on setting the highest level of spending for next year and determining how long to raise the debt ceiling before having to raise it again. After the meeting, McCarthy told reporters that the meeting had been “productive,” adding, “I think the tone tonight was better than any other time we’ve had discussions.”

He added, “I think we can still get there. And I think we can get that done,” and that he expected to talk to Biden every day.

On the earnings front, shares of Lowe’s rose 2% even after the home improvement retailer cut its full-year outlook due to waning demand for home improvement projects. Lowe’s beat first-quarter earnings and sales targets.

Other major drivers of earnings include AutoZone (AZO), Wholesale BJ’s (BJ), Dick’s Sporting Goods (DKS), Heiko (HEI) f Zoom for visual communications (ZM).

AutoZone shares fell 4.5% in early trade, while BJ shares lost 6%. Dick’s Sporting Goods is up about 3%, as Heico shares are down 2% in morning trade.

Finally, ZM stock was up 9.65% late Monday but was down nearly 6% Tuesday morning.

Finally, new home sales numbers are due at 10 a.m. ET. New home sales in April are expected to drop to 670,000 vs. the March jump to 683,000.
