Airline passenger traffic was down slightly, though this followed the week with the Labor Day holiday.

Dow Jones Volatile on Elevated Unemployment Claims; Nike, Home Depot, and Goldman Sachs Talked Up by Analysts

The number of Americans filing initial jobless claims rose slightly in the week ended Sept. 19 to 870,000, still far above pre-pandemic levels and higher than economists were expecting. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES:^DJI) managed to rise nonetheless on Thursday, up around 0.25% at 11:45 a.m. EDT. The Dow was volatile throughout the morning, so that gain may not hold.

Shares of Nike (NYSE:NKE) failed to rise along with the Dow even after an analyst talked up the company’s digital transformation. Positive analyst commentary did help Home Depot (NYSE:HD) and Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) stocks, both of which were in positive territory by late morning.

Weekly jobless claims rise unexpectedly, total 870,000

The number of first-time filers for unemployment benefits were slightly higher than expected last week as the labor market continues its sluggish recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

The Labor Department reported Thursday that initial jobless claims for the week ending Sept. 19 came in at 870,000. Economists polled by Dow Jones expected first-time claims at 850,000, down slightly from the previous week’s 860,000.

“Bottom line, we have a mix of people going back to work because they are now greater incentivized to do so without the extra $600 per week and those that are still challenged in finding a job that matches their skills in this unfortunate pandemic landscape,” said Peter Boockvar, chief investment officer at Bleakley Advisory Group. He was referring to the expiration this summer of the $600 a week in supplemental benefits paid to people who lost their jobs during the coronavirus pandemic.

Ellen DeGeneres publicly addresses workplace toxicity claims for first time

Ellen DeGeneres kicked off Season 18 of her talk show by publicly addressing the controversy surrounding the show for the first time.

“If you’re watching because you love me, thank you,” DeGeneres said at the top of Monday’s Ellen DeGeneres Show. “If you’re watching because you don’t love me, welcome.” She went on to quip, “How was everybody’s summer, good? Mine was great. Super terrific.”

DeGeneres’s namesake program has been the subject of troubling reports for months with claims of intimidation, racial insensitivity and sexual misconduct in the workplace. The 62-year-old host, who apologized to staffers twice for the workplace toxicity, was accused of fostering the environment, and an investigation is ongoing, though three senior staff members — Ed Glavin, Kevin Leman and Jonathan Norman — were let go so far. She addressed all that in her monologue in front of a virtual audience.

N.J. unemployment claims drop below 20K for first time in 5 weeks. $300-a-week extra payment expected next month.

New weekly unemployment claims dipped 14% for the week ending Sept. 12, bringing the weekly claims filing to a new low for the first time in five weeks, the state Department of Labor said.

About 19,600 new unemployment claims were filed last week — the fewest applications since the 13,822 during the week ending Aug. 8, which saw the lowest number of new claims during the pandemic.

It brings the total number of New Jersey workers who applied for unemployment benefits since the pandemic hit in mid-March to 1.58 million people, with 1.38 million of those being eligible. Of those, 96% have received at least one payment.

“We’re grateful to see more New Jerseyans returning to work, but we are also keenly aware of how many employees and small business owners remain unemployed, often for the first time in their lives,” said Labor Commissioner Robert Asaro-Angelo. “It’s these workers —
