Squawk On The Street

Big Earnings Day For Retail, AT&T Tumbles One Day After Agreeing to Merge its WarnerMedia Unit With Discovery, An Eye-Opening Survey on Bitcoin, and Is Amazon About to Let Out a Lion's Roar in Hollywood?

Carl Quintanilla, Jim Cramer and David Faber began the show with a look at retail earnings: Walmart, Home Depot and Macy’s each posting better-than-expected quarterly results. Walmart and Macy’s citing government stimulus as one of the catalysts behind their numbers. The anchors explored what the retailers’ results tell us about the recovery and the role that increased vaccinations are playing in getting consumers back into the stores. They also discussed the jump in lumber prices and how they figured into Home Depot’s results. M&A also in the spotlight: AT&T shares down sharply one day after announcing it has agreed to merge its WarnerMedia unit with Discovery. Looking back at Monday’s appearances by AT&T CEO John Stankey and Discovery CEO David Zaslav on the 10am ET hour of “Squawk on the Street”, the anchors reacted to two comments: What Stankey said about AT&T’s dividend — and Zaslav’s remarks on succeeding with production and content. Meantime, sources say Amazon is in talks to acquire MGM Studios. Other stories in focus: A report from the New York Times saying that “In China, Apple Compromises on Censorship and Surveillance”, why being long Bitcoin was the most crowded trade in Bank of America’s fund manager survey for May, the Elon Musk effect on cryptocurrency, the road ahead for auto-related SPACs, and regulators getting ready to review CN’s takeover offer for Kansas City Southern.
