Indonesia Slips Into Recession In Q3

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Indonesia’s economy slipped into a recession for the first time since the Asian financial crisis in 1998, data released by the statistics bureau revealed Thursday.

Gross domestic product fell 3.49 percent on a yearly basis in the third quarter after shrinking 5.32 percent in the second quarter. Economists had forecast an annual decline of 3 percent.

Technical recession is defined as two consecutive quarters of negative growth in real GDP.

On a quarterly basis, the economy expanded 5.05 percent, which was slower than economists’ expectations of 5.34 percent.

The expenditure-side breakdown showed that government spending grew 9.8 percent annually. Meanwhile, household spending was down 4.04 percent and investment plunged 6.5 percent.

Exports were down 10.8 percent and imports declined sharply by 21.9 percent.

The recovery should continue over the coming months, but it is likely to be slow and fitful as the pandemic is far from being under control, Gareth Leather, an economist at Capital Economics, said.

Fiscal and monetary policy is also likely to remain supportive, Leather said. The economist expects the central bank to ease monetary policy provided there are no further sudden sharp falls in the rupiah.

The bank had reduced the key interest rate four times this year to support the economy.

Stock Alert: Penumbra Down 5% Despite Partnership With RapidAI

Shares of healthcare company Penumbra, Inc. (PEN) are losing more than 5 percent or $13.46 in Tuesday’s morning trade at $229.00.

Tuesday, Penumbra said it has formed a new partnership with RapidAI to develop solutions to enable faster clinical decision-making for pulmonary embolism or PE diagnosis and procedures. RapidAI offers a data-driven artificial intelligence or AI platform that empowers clinicians to make faster, more accurate diagnostic and treatment decisions for stroke and aneurysm patients.

Penumbra said it will work with RapidAI to develop several clinical and communications modules for pulmonary embolism, which is a deadly condition involving blood clots in the lungs. The modules are intended to streamline triage and decision-making by processing CT scans and delivering clear, easy-to-interpret CT images directly to the physician.

U.S. stocks are mixed on Tuesday as traders continued to cycle out of tech stocks that benefited from the coronavirus pandemic and into cyclical stocks that struggled.
