After President Biden joined striking auto workers on the picket line in Michigan, the United Auto Workers (UAW) union has confirmed its plans to expand its strike on Friday, September 29, if no progress has been made in labor negotiations. Investors are left wondering how long Big Three automakers Ford (F), General Motors (GM), and Stellantis (STLA) can hold out. Tom Narayan, RBC Capital Markets Lead Equity Analyst — Global Autos, sits down with Yahoo Finance Live to discuss what the profit margin squeeze could look like if the strike continues. "There is some degree of political theater here, right? Both sides that don't really want to cave in," Narayan says. "UAW coming in with a very unprecedented high demand — 40% increase in labor costs — and then the OEMs they have a situation they're facing which is coming off really high price mix that's probably going to start normalizing. So that is going to pressure their profitability, they definitely don't want to pay higher wages on top of that." Narayan also reacts to Tesla (TESLA) CEO Elon Musk's beliefs that the UAW strike could ultimately bankrupt the Big Three operators.

Striking auto workers have yet to formally endorse President Biden after he joined a United Auto Workers (UAW) picket line in Michigan on Tuesday. Wayne State University Business Professor Marick Master explains why unions' presidential endorsements may not be as significant now than in previous election cycles. "The auto workers have never been of a single mind when it comes to politics," Master states. "There's always been division, and there is a sizable conservative or populist wing in the auto workers membership, and trump appealed to that in 2016.

Costco (COST) topped earnings and revenue estimates as other retailers are reporting weakness across the sector. Forrester Research Retail Analyst Sucharita Kodali joins Yahoo Finance Live to react to Costco's fourth-quarter earnings report and how it compares to the consumer narratives playing out in the larger retail space. "Costco's business does tend to be fairly recession-proof, similar to other mass merchants like Walmart, in large part because when a consumer may have lower expectations for the future, they're going to fly to value," Kodali says. "Costco absolutely offers that." For more expert insight and the latest market action, click here to watch this full episode of Yahoo Finance Live.
