News and Results

News concerns the world at large, the wider economy, the sector of the stock, and the company itself.

An example of news that might affect the markets and stock prices is if oil prices rise wildly and the knock-on effects this could have. These effects might include higher transportation costs, leading to higher production prices, leading to higher inflation, and then higher interest rates, all of which would impact many companies negatively as their own cost bases rise, therefore impacting on their margins and overall profitability. The specter of inflation and the use of higher interest rates to combat it is a problem for many stocks in general. When sentiment is worried about the increasing risk of higher inflation, the markets will generally become more uncertain, volatile, and might fall.
