U.S. stock futures fell Friday after the government’s latest employment report showed much weaker-than-expected jobs growth in December. The Labor Department’s December jobs report this morning showed just 199,000 nonfarm payrolls were added last month, less than half of what analysts had been expecting. The nation’s unemployment rate fell more than expected to 3.9%. Average hourly earnings rose more than expected as the U.S. sees its fastest inflation pace in nearly 40 years.
The 10-year Treasury yield topped 1.76% following a lower-than-expected unemployment rate.
Apple (AAPL) rose in Friday’s premarket trade. However, the stock has dropped 6% from Tuesday’s all-time high and this week’s punch through a $3 trillion market value. Apple CEO Tim Cook received $98.73 million in compensation in the company’s fiscal 2021, according to an SEC filing published Thursday.
The Supreme Court on Friday will take up two major Biden administration efforts to bump up the nation’s Covid vaccination rates at a time of spiking coronavirus cases due to the omicron variant. The justices on the conservative-dominated court are set to hear arguments about whether to allow the administration to enforce a vaccine-or-testing requirement for large employers and a separate vaccine mandate for most health-care workers. The eventual outcome at the high court will probably determine the fate of vaccine requirements affecting more than 80 million people.
