A2M share price

The A2 Milk Company Ltd (ASX: A2M) share price is trading lower on Monday.

At the time of writing the infant formula and fresh milk company’s shares are down 0.35% to $14.32.

Why is the a2 Milk Company share price trading lower?

Today’s decline appears to be down to general weakness in the share market on Monday.

This has been caused by a disappointing finish to the week on Wall Street following a softer than expected U.S. jobs result.

Combined with lower than anticipated wage growth in the United States, this sparked concerns over U.S. consumer spending and the economy in general.
