3 Big Stories to Watch: China's Economic Data, Tilray Earnings, CBS-Viacom Deal
U.S. futures are indicating a sharp decline Wednesday morning as global economic recession indicators mount.
China reported a decline in July investment, retail spending and manufacturing.
Whether that is a function of the U.S.-China trade war or a wider economic downturn that could infect other global economies.
In the U.S., an inversion of the 10-year and two-year yield curves is weighing on futures ahead of the open.
CBS and Viacom agreed to a merger that will create a company with $28 billion in annual revenue and a $30 billion market cap.
Finally, Tilray shares are dropping double digits premarket after the Canadian cannabis company reported a second quarter net loss that was wider than expected.
However, analyst at Piper Jaffray believe that long-term, Tilray has a good chance of being the industry's standard bearer.
"We expect Tilray to remain in investment mode to drive growth and do not expect positive earnings in the near-term," the firm's note said.
