Best Tech Stocks To Watch Right Now

Prices and wages have been slow to accelerate throughout the U.S. economic expansion, surprising economists. Now, a new conundrum threatens to emerge: Faster inflation accompanied by more of the same paltry growth in pay.

“Broad-based wage gains, in our business at least, they’re just not going to happen,” Troy Taylor, chief executive officer at Coca-Cola Beverages Florida, said during a conference at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas last week. The company will pay for some skilled workers, but will otherwise increasingly turn to technology to fill its production needs, he said.

“As businesses do get more pricing power, because we will, what happens to that segment of the population that cannot get a wage gain?" he asked.

It’s a key question for U.S. central bankers, and is one reason to keep the pace of rate hikes slow and steady even as inflation converges to Fed policy makers’ 2 percent goal. Unemployment is at a 17-year low, but if something has changed that structurally prevents low joblessness from yielding higher pay — be it new technologies, stubborn slack in the labor market, or a coming rebound in capital spending — the contours of the economy could be totally different.

    Merger mania hit a wall Thursday. Tribune Media Co. (NYSE: TRCO) killed off its merger deal with Sinclair Broadcast Group (Nasdaq: SBGI) and filed a breach of contract lawsuit against its suitor.

The decline came after the first round of sanctions against Iran by the U.S. government. Iran, which shipped three million barrels of oil per day in July, might now see its demand for crude dry up. This is likely to exacerbate existing trade tensions between the United States and the Middle Eastern regime.
