SEANA SMITH: Taking a look at what to watch next week. First up, Apple's big event where the tech giant is expected to launch its highly anticipated iPhone 15. The debut coming after shares took a huge hit this week, following reports that China is going to broaden its ban on iPhones for government employees and state businesses.
Also, get the latest check on inflation. CPI, the Fed's favorite measure, could give investors clues on future Fed policy. Prices did cool last month. But energy prices have jumped since then, potentially complicating the Fed's battle to tame inflation.
And Thursday is the deadline for the UAW and the big three Detroit automakers to reach a deal in order to avoid a strike. Stellantis joining Ford and General Motors in offering the unions significant wage increases in an effort to avoid a work stoppage. Stellantis' offer of a 14.5% increase is larger than its rivals.
And all week, Yahoo Finance will help answer your student loan questions. We will be speaking with education and personal finance experts in a week-long series, "Student Loans: Smarter Strategies." That kicks off Monday morning right here on Yahoo Finance.
