(Seeking Alpha) Stocks finished lower Friday, as optimism over President-elect Biden’s proposed $1.9 trillion stimulus plan gave way to questions around bipartisan support, leading investors to take profits ahead of the long weekend. Weak bank earnings and slumping oil prices hit cyclical stocks, and the 10-year Treasury yield finished at 1.09% after an early move to nearly 1.19% breached its highest level since March. Meanwhile, the COVID-19 vaccine rollout continues to hit snags, with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio saying the city is poised to run out of the vaccine by next week. For the full week, the Dow Jones average settled 0.9% lower, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq both fell 1.5%.

Stimulus cheer + cost worries
President-elect Joe Biden began laying out his economic agenda on Thursday night, saying he would ask Congress for $1.9T in immediate relief to fight the coronavirus pandemic. The plan includes $1,400-per-person direct payments to most households, a $400-a-week unemployment insurance supplement through September, as well as funds for COVID-testing, vaccine distribution and state and local governments. The proposal is the first phase of a two-part strategy, with a broader program to be unveiled in subsequent weeks focused on infrastructure and climate change.
Not only is further fiscal aid on the table, but Fed Chair Jerome Powell doubled down on the monetary side as weekly jobless benefit claims rose to their highest level since last August. “Now is not the time to be talking about exit” from easy money policies, he said in a webcast with Princeton University, pledging to give plenty of notice before scaling back the central bank’s bond-buying program. In addition to high unemployment, inflation isn’t on a path to reaching 2% on a sustained basis, even though it might shoot higher this year.
Thought bubble: Biden’s plan includes ideas that Republicans have rejected, including raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, while some legislation will need 60 votes in the Senate, which would require GOP members to get on board. “Joe Biden did not propose a COVID package tonight – he proposed a liberal takeover of the American economy,” said Rep. Jason Smith (R., Mo.), the top Republican on the House Budget Committee. “Americans aren’t asking for trillions of dollars in new spending. They just want our government to open our economy, get their kids back to school, and create jobs.”
Dow -0.9% to 30,814. S&P 500 -1.5% to 3,768. Nasdaq -1.5% to 12,999. Russell 2000 +1.5% to 2,123. CBOE Volatility Index +12.9% to 24.34.
S&P 500 Sectors
Consumer Staples -2%. Utilities +1.1%. Financials +0.1%. Telecom -3.6%. Healthcare -0.4%. Industrials -0.9%. Information Technology -2.6%. Materials -1.6%. Energy +3.1%. Consumer Discretionary -1.9%.
