Thursday’s business headlines

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Here’s a look at Thursday’s business headlines.

Trump – Biden

By one measure, Joe Biden beat President Donald Trump.

Social Cred, a tool that measures and ranks online influence in a scientific manner, says despite having only a quarter of Trump’s Twitter followers, Biden is more influential.

It says this because his posts record a relatively higher engagement rate, more positive audience sentiment and better original-shared post ratio.

Tech companies

The four biggest tech companies announce their earnings and tell you a lot about where we are as consumers.

Amazon, Apple, Google and Facebook all will report.

All are expected to have benefited from the pandemic as people relied more on technology.


The U.S. will likely report the fastest economic growth on record Thursday.

GDP is the broadest measure we have of the economy.

The huge jump is due to the economy opening back up after being suddenly shut down earlier in the year.


The down has lost about 1,500 points this week.
