Increased profits for JPMorgan Chase (JPM) in the third quarter demonstrated the company’s resilience in the face of industry challenges this year. New York’s megacorp recorded $13.2 billion in profits, a 35% increase from the prior-year period. Its profit increased by 21% to $40.7 billion.

On Friday, when the third-quarter earnings season began with reports from UnitedHealth (UNH) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM), the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose. Meanwhile, Netflix (NFLX), the industry leader in streaming, fell on a downgrade from analysts. UnitedHealth (UNH), JPMorgan (JPM), Citigroup (C), and Wells Fargo (WFC) were all Dow Jones stocks with significant earnings announcements on Friday.

After the United States increased sanctions against Russian petroleum shipments on Friday, driving up supply fears in an already expensive energy market, oil prices jumped by more than 4 percent.

Core inflation (excluding food and energy) came in hotter than predicted in the September consumer-prices report, causing a drop in stock prices. The possibility of a rate increase has investors concerned.

The merger between Microsoft and Activision Blizzard, valued at $69 billion, has been approved by Britain’s competition watchdog.

As previously reported by Dollar General, former CEO Todd Vasos will once again be in charge of the company. Because of decreasing sales growth and stakeholder criticism that the corporation provides a dangerous workplace for employees and customers, the stock price has dropped by around 60% over the past year.

After a busy summer, Delta saw a 60% increase in quarterly profits, and it expects that trend to continue into the fall.

This week, the EU issued a warning to Meta, saying that the company risks steep fines if it fails to comply with the EU’s new moderation guidelines and remove pro-Hamas information. Users searching social media for combat updates have had to wade through a sea of misinformation, archived footage, and computer game snippets.

Although Walgreens’ bottom line fell short of projections, the company was able to reduce its losses by decreasing expenses. Sales of Covid test kits are down, and pharmacists are on strike because of poor working conditions.

Another new function is the ability to amend a thread after it has been posted. X, a competitor to Facebook founded by Mark Zuckerberg, has announced the addition of an edit button that will give users five minutes to make changes to their postings after they have been published. Most notably, this function does not cost anything. Another much-requested addition, voice threads, has recently begun rolling out.
