“As a developer long ago, and continuing to this day, the politicians ran Chicago into the ground. I was able to make an appropriately great deal with the numerous lenders on a large and very beautiful tower. Doesn’t that make me a smart guy rather than a bad guy?” Trump tweeted.

Analysts Estimate Huron Consulting (HURN) to Report a Decline in Earnings: What to Look Out for

The market expects Huron Consulting (HURN) to deliver a year-over-year decline in earnings on lower revenues when it reports results for the quarter ended September 2020. This widely-known consensus outlook is important in assessing the company’s earnings picture, but a powerful factor that might influence its near-term stock price is how the actual results compare to these estimates.

The earnings report, which is expected to be released on November 2, 2020, might help the stock move higher if these key numbers are better than expectations. On the other hand, if they miss, the stock may move lower.

While the sustainability of the immediate price change and future earnings expectations will mostly depend on management’s discussion of business conditions on the earnings call, it’s worth handicapping the probability of a positive EPS surprise.

Zacks Consensus Estimate

This consulting company is expected to post quarterly earnings of $0.28 per share in

Business Economists Report Favorable Economic Conditions and Improvement for Next Year | National News

A survey released Monday of 92 business economists found most firms are continuing to recover from the economic downturn set off by the coronavirus pandemic and expect stronger growth over the next year.

Despite the rosy outlook, which has improved since a similar survey in July, the survey conducted earlier this month found hiring remains depressed and companies continue to allow employees flexibility in working at home.

Political Cartoons on the Economy

The survey “shows that firms are continuing to gain ground since the sharp economic downturn experienced in the first half of the year, said National Association of Business Economists President Manuel Balmaseda, chief economist at materials group Cemex. “The momentum is expected to continue though 2020.”

Report forecasts major small business job losses in Denver and beyond as winter chill sets in

The “Game of Thrones” tagline “winter is coming” is especially ominous for small businesses in this COVID-19 battered year.

A new report from online payroll and benefits platform Gusto predicts dire outcomes if more government relief funding is not made available to help businesses through the cold weather months.

The report, authored by Gusto economist Luke Pardue, outlines a scenario where retailers and leisure and hospitality businesses including restaurants hemorrhage 1.4 million jobs as cold weather makes pandemic adaptations like outdoor dining and queuing outside shops with capped capacities untenable in large swaths of the northern and western U.S.

If coronavirus cases spike, as they already are in Colorado and other parts of the country, and economic activity slows even more, Pardue predicts that small businesses in those sectors could shed 2.8 million jobs.

Denver would not be spared. Gusto, which has a large office in the city, predicts that
