Investing.com -- Stocks fell on Wednesday as Wall Street absorbed mixed data on the U.S. economic recovery, including worse than expected progress on jobs but improvement in services demand.

ADP’s private payrolls report showed employers added 330,000 jobs in July, far lower than the 695,000 expected. The government’s own nonfarm payrolls report is due out Friday.

The Institute for Supply Management reported its non-manufacturing activity index hit 64.1 last month from 60.1 in June, the highest reading in its history.

Contributing to the market sentiment on Wednesday, Federal Reserve Vice Chair Richard Clarida commented that the economy is on track to meet the employment and inflation goals the Federal Reserve has set for raising interest rates.

But the news was also filled with concerning stories about the spread of the highly contagious Delta variant of coronavirus. Cases and hospitalizations are spiking, especially in areas of the South and California where vaccination rates have been relatively low. 

In New York, the annual auto show was canceled for the second year, and organizers cited spiking cases of Covid. It was to have started August 20 at the Javits Center, a giant exhibition space that functioned as a vaccination megasite during the spring.

Earnings continue to roll out this week. Here are three things that could affect markets tomorrow:

1. Pharma earnings

Covid-19 vaccine maker Moderna Inc (NASDAQ:MRNA) is expected to announce second-quarter earnings per share of $5.96 on revenue of $4.21 billion. Listen for what they say about their plans for an mRNA vaccine for malaria.

2. Home decor earnings

Buying stuff for your home was a big pandemic activity, but that was all bound to end at some point. Home decor ecommerce site Wayfair Inc (NYSE:W) is seen posting revenue of $3.95 billion and EPS of $1.17 for the second quarter, according to analysts tracked by Investing.com.

3. Fake meat results

Plant-based food maker Beyond Meat Inc (NASDAQ:BYND) is expected to post a loss of 22 cents per share and revenue of $141 million for the second quarter.

$MRNA got pumped hard into earnings >> makes sense/cents with the Delta Variant spreading & covid here to stay, but you got to think there is the "possibility" of an offering announced tomorrow. They may need to raise additional funding to meet demand & expand production. This is just pure speculation on my part.......

"Federal Reserve Vice Chair Richard Clarida commented that the economy is on track to meet the employment and inflation goals the Federal Reserve has set for raising interest rates." You've just got to be kidding me????? I don't know what those goals are, but they aren't what the mainstream is believing they are - we're heading for total economic collapse and OK if the FED has inflation goals of 20+ per cent, then yeah, perhaps that goal will indeed be achieved - it is the only way the government can ever pay off its debt - make every USD worth a tenth of what it is today - and they'll do that within five years!

Venkat Raman  well the FED will have failed then - this is totally and deliberately set up for massive inflation - it's the only way the US can draw down their 40 trillion (and rising rapidly) debt - it's the only way out of governments not going broke. This is how all empire fall in the end - with more extreme measures for currency devaluation. the pandemic was the planned backdrop to allow the whole thing to happen.
