Top Market Segment to Watch Out Today:
ORACLE: Oracle Corp topped Wall Street estimates for quarterly profit and revenue on Monday, as demand for its cloud products soars amid an industry-wide shift to cloud-based platforms.
Shares in the Austin, Texas-based company, whose fourth-quarter revenue jumped 5%, rose about 12% in extended trade.
US: U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen will visit the Rosebud Sioux Tribe next week in South Dakota to discuss COVID-19 aid funding and will travel to Toronto to meet Canadian Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland, the Treasury said on Monday.
Treasury and Rosebud Sioux officials said the visit on June 21 will give the tribe the opportunity to show Yellen the impact that some $195 million in American Rescue Plan funding is making on one of the poorest and largest tribal nations in the United States.
Officials from both the Treasury and the tribe said they could find no records of a Treasury secretary previously visiting any Native American nation. Yellen pledged last November to visit a tribal community during the next year.
In a statement, the Treasury said Yellen will “highlight the disproportionate impact the pandemic has had on tribal communities and how the American Rescue Plan funds are supporting their recovery.”
Eurozone: German consumer prices in May inched higher on a monthly basis to 0.9% from 0.8%, according to a final CPI reading from the Federal Statistical Office on Tuesday, as inflationary pressure deepens on Europe’s largest economy.
The annual figure also jumped to 7.9% in May, up from 7.4% in the previous month, suggesting that the European Central Bank will face a challenge in its bid to control soaring inflation.
The data comes after Germany’s central bank warned last week that inflation would rise by 7.1% in 2022 – far above its previous estimate of 3.6% in December. The Bundesbank added that higher prices are also set to linger into next year, with the 2023 inflation forecast now seen higher at 4.5% from 2.2%.
“Inflation this year will be even stronger than it was at the beginning of the 1980s,” said Bundesbank president Joachim Nagel in a statement.
