Ousted OpenAI CEO Goes To Microsoft

Microsoft (MSFT) shares are up 0.4% ahead of the open after news the ousted OpenAI CEO, Sam Altman, will join Microsoft to lead a new advanced AI research team. 

Microsoft’s CEO made that announcement in a post on X late Sunday night, saying, “we’re extremely excited to share the news that Sam Altman and Greg Brockman, together with colleagues, will be joining Microsoft to lead a new advanced AI research team.”

He also said the company remains “committed to our partnership with OpenAI.”

Altman was ousted from OpenAI by the board on Friday.

OpenAI is the creator of ChatGPT and considered the current leader in the AI space.

Shortened Week

This will be a shortened week for traders with the market closed for Thanksgiving Thursday and there is not much on the calendar.

Here are the data highlights:

  • Monday: Conference Board leading economic index
  • Tuesday: Existing home sales, FOMC meeting minutes
  • Wednesday: Weekly jobless claims, Durable goods orders, Consumer sentiment
  • Thursday: Thanksgiving holiday, market closed 
  • Friday: S&P flash services and manufacturing PMI, market closed early at 1:00 p.m. ET

Yields Start New Week Higher

Treasury yields are rising this morning as investors assess the outlook of the U.S. economy. 

The 10-year yield is up three basis points at 4.48%.

Market consensus is that the Fed is done hiking rates with CME Group’s FedWatch Tool showing a chance 99.8% of no rate hike in December.

But now the market is trying to determine when the bank will begin rate cuts. 

Focus will turn to the Fed’s meeting minutes set to be released on Tuesday for any clues about the discussion surrounding future rate cuts.
