5 Stocks That Could Get Rocked By May’s ‘Horrible’ U.S. Jobs Report

Friday’s release of U.S. Nonfarm Payrolls for May came in at near six-year lows, which when compared to estimates will likely impact the stocks on our list

SmallCapPower | June 6, 2016: U.S. Nonfarm Payroll data, released on Friday, showed 38,000 positions created for May, falling far short of analyst estimates of 159,000. Removing the 34,000 lost by the Verizon strike (which is now over), payrolls would have still increased only by 72,000. Perhaps the most significant ramifications pertain to the expected June rate hike by the Fed, which could no long be on the table. Fed Chair Janet Yellen mentioned that continued job growth and stable inflation would promote a rate hike in June, however with this being the most significant jobs figure until the June meeting, a summer rate hike now appears unlikely. Certain stocks could take a hit as expectations on the U.S. economy are lowered, which could include the names on our list today.
