Premarket stocks: Nothing can keep tech stocks down as Apple and Amazon shine

Expectations for the Apple event drove the company’s shares up more than 6% on Monday, and they’re up another 2% in premarket trading. Amazon’s stock jumped almost 5% Monday.

Apple’s agenda: Investors expect the company to announce the launch of a long-rumored upgrade that would allow the iPhone to connect to 5G wireless networks.

Some analysts expect the 5G iPhone to generate a “supercycle” of device upgrades, potentially prompting more people than usual to buy the new device.

“Consumers looking to buy a 5G iPhone will have no choice but to pay up and buy it directly through Apple over the next two to three years,” said CFRA Research analyst Angelo Zino.

India’s e-commerce battle: Flipkart and Amazon compete for record festive sales

But this year is particularly important as the world reels from economic fallout caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Millions of Indian shoppers are still wary of venturing into physical stores, and Meena expects online sales to grow more than 34% to $6.5 billion this year.

“This is the time when consumers are actually in spending mode,” he said, adding that the roughly one-month sales period is expected to account for 18% of India’s total online shopping for 2020. “That’s why every company wants to win the battle during the festive period.”

Flipkart’s competitive edge during the festive season

Flipkart was India’s single-largest online retailer in 2018 with 31.9% market share, according to the most recent report from Forrester. Walmart bought the homegrown company for $16 billion in 2018.

Snag Levi’s Best Selling Bandana Face Masks for $12 During Amazon Prime Day

From Good Housekeeping

As the novel coronavirus pandemic surges on, the demand for face masks has some retailers scrambling to make more — and sometimes, finding a mask that’s actually in stock and ready to be shipped is tricky. Medical-grade surgical masks are in tight supply as healthcare workers on the frontlines in hospitals and clinics are facing a shortage of supplies; while these surgical masks and N95 respirators are designed for a single-use, many doctors, nurses, and essential staff are reusing them anyway.

This is why the Surgeon General Jerome M. Adams has urged the general public to stop buying PPE. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that N95’s are the most effective in protecting those treating infected patients, but for those who are not in a medical setting, they’re actually rendered mostly ineffective without a fit test. All this being said, it makes more
