The main economic influence of share price moves is indirect, and basically negative.

Reports from the Financial sectorAnnual Report on Annual Reports - Evaluation tools
e.com has a solid track record in the assessment and benchmarking
of reports from the financial sector.
Actually, that's where and how we started our report evaluation business, back in the 90s.
Since then, we have kept on providing evaluation services to some financial institutions who strive for higher reporting standards and best practice.
However, for consistency, comparability and credibility reasons (chalk it up to the latest financial crises and other stress factors) it has been decided not to select financial sector institutions for the Annual Report on Annual Reports these last years. This does not imply that there are not high-quality reports in the sector. e.com has therefore developed specific evaluation tools for the financial sector.

A report on capitalism
e.com's founder and manager Mike Guillaume wears two hats -financial reporting specialist and international economist- and has got good vantage points for watching companies, economies and economics work (or not). In the new expanded edition of his thought-provoking book, he reviews capitalism's deadly sins (and what's left of the system's virtues) and proposes a toolbox for reinventing a model.
