MarketWatch - 43min

President Trump has no events on his public schedule, White House officials said Wednesday, contradicting reports overnight that the president planned to attend an event about election fraud sponsored by Republicans in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

The so-called "hearing" is not an official act by the Pennsylvania legislature, but organized by the PA Senate Majority Policy Committee, a policy arm of the Pennsylvania Senate's Republican conference.

Morgan Stanley raises its Q4 GDP tracking estimate to 5.6% rate from 4.3% after data

MarketWatch - 1hr

Economists at Morgan Stanley said Wednesday they are raising their fourth-quarter tracking estimate to a 5.6% annual rate from the previous estimate of a 4.3% rate after the economic data released earlier in the morning. In a note to clients, Morgan said the 1.3% jump in orders for durable goods last month along with strong inventories and the 0.5% gain in consumer spending were factors behind the upward revision. Looking ahead, "after a difficult winter," with consumer spending declining for two straight months, there should be a pickup in the spring along with the broad-based dissemination of a COVID-19 vaccine, the firm said. The economy grew at a record 33.1% rate in the second quarter as businesses reopened from the depth of the pandemic.


Amazon Web Services service suffers amid widespread issues with online applications

MarketWatch - 1hr

The problems stemmed from the company's core eastern U.S. hub in northern Virginia; a problem with AWS's S3 service at that facility in 2017 caused widespread outages for popular online services. The website downdetector.com, which tracks online services, reported problems from several popular offerings Tuesday morning, including the popular videogame "League of Legends," Sirius XM satellite radio, and the Ring doorbell system, which is owned by Amazon.

Tesla Inc. is recalling more than 9,000 Model Y and Model X vehicles over issues with bolts and, in the case of the Model X SUV, a roof trim that could detach over time, potentially causing accidents or creating a road hazard.
