    Boon for big banks: More consumers leaned on credit cards in Q1

    More consumers leaned on their credit cards in the first quarter, across Citi (C), JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM), and Wells Fargo (WFC) cards. Yahoo Finance reporter David Hollerith joins Wealth! to discuss what this tendency means for consumers and their finances. Spending and credit card loan balances have gone up year over year, Hollerith says. As business loans have been growing at a slower pace, Hollerith calls the increased consumer spending and balances a "bright spot" for these banks in terms of loan growth. However, it is difficult to pinpoint sticky inflation as the direct cause of higher credit card spending, Hollerith adds.

    Consumer credit signals 'outright weakness,' spending may drop

    Stocks are facing pressure as the markets digest the disappointing earnings reports from major banks, including JPMorgan (JPM), Citigroup (C), and Wells Fargo (WFC). NewEdge Wealth Chief Investment Officer Cameron Dawson joins Yahoo Finance to discuss the market outlook. Dawson notes that she is closely following bank discussions about credit health for both consumers and corporations — in other words, how end customers are dealing with a higher-for-longer environment. Despite bank conversation about post-pandemic normalization, Dawson questions whether new levels of delinquency and higher balances compared to disposable income actually represent "outright weakness" in credit. Dawson acknowledges that consumers have been able to "keep on spending" despite higher interest rates. However, she points out that other factors, such as rising debt levels and flatlining wage growth, could start to impact consumer spending going forward. Regarding recession fears, Dawson indicates that GDP growth estimates will be a key data point to monitor.
