  • 5/27   Avowed Apple Fan Jeb Bush Realizes His Apple Watch Can Take Phone Calls

    Jeb Bush's love of Apple products has been widely documented, and the Republican presidential candidate continues to wear his Apple Watch on the campaign trail. Yesterday, in a meeting with The Des Moines Register editorial board documented by USA Today, Bush stumbled upon a feature he didn’t realize his smartwatch was capable of: taking phone calls. Somehow Bush managed to take a call without picking up his iPhone, and the sound of a person’s voice saying hello breaks through the meeting noise, to which Bush responds, “My watch can’t be talking.”

  • 7/27   Markets live: Lloyds PPI costs could reach £1.8bn
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Post-Brexit jobs boom to create 2.7m jobs FTSE 100 closed Friday at 7271, pound at $1.23 DOW closed at 26728 on Friday, Asian markets edge higher overnight Stevenson: Why the current Brexit deadlock is good for investors 7:38AM BA pilot strike gets underway British Airways has grounded most of its flights as a two-day strike by pilots gets underway today. There was little progress over the weekend to end the dispute over pay, meaning that pilots will walk out en-masse today and tomorrow. It's estimated it could cost the airline up to £80 million.  Industrial action is also planned for Sep 27, with disruptions mainly expected to affect London, where BA operates from Heathrow and Gatwick airports.    7:30AM Lloyds PPI claims costs could reach £1.8bn A surge in the number of PPI claims at Lloyds ahead of the Aug 29 deadline will force it to make a separate provision as part of its third quarter numbers, the bank has revealed.  Having previously expected to see around 190,000 claims a month, Lloyds said it received between 600,000 and 800,000 claims per week in the final month alone.  This could lead to a one-off charge in the region of £1.2 billion - £1.8 billion, although the bank warned it is still processing claims and the final number could be higher or lower than this initial estimate.  It echoes similar statements from RBS and owner of Clydesdale Bank CYBG which both unveiled higher than expected PPI costs last week.  7:15AM And we're off: Good morning, as markets prepare for another day of political turmoil with a fresh general election vote, investors will be watching for upcoming GDP figures later today and any other market shifts from action at Westminster. However, there has been some good news, according to economists from BNP Paribas and CEBR. Britain ought to be in line for a long-term jobs boost thanks to booming science and technology sectors, come what may on votes this week. Economists at the bank warned against “falling into the trap of short-termism”. Words to live by. Here are the rest of today's talking points. 5 things to start your day 1) The pound could face further shifts today, but its recent weakness is affecting different sectors. These are the winners and losers, writes Tim Wallace.  2) Ahead of its results this week, could Morrisons find itself in the bargain bin as a retail takeover target? 3) Car dealer Pendragon has been conducting a beauty parade of advisers to help repair the seller as car sales continue to suffer. 4) British Airways has urged passengers not to show up as it faces its first ever pilots strike. More than 1,600 flights have been cancelled at the IAG airline. 5) There has been a call for a free ports boost by scrapping business rates. The boss of Port Zones UK, a group promoting a wave of new UK free ports, has called for extra incentives. What happened overnight  Asian stocks tip-toed higher on Monday amid a cautious market mood as investors hoped for stimulus to support growth in the world's major economies. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan added 0.1%. The Shanghai Composite Index was up 0.4%. Australian stocks edged up 0.1%, South Korea's KOSPI rose 0.7% and Japan's Nikkei was up 0.4%. Hong Kong rose 0.2 percent but gains were tempered by profit-taking after last week's surge as well as ongoing worries about months-long protests in the city, with fresh violence over the weekend. China’s exports unexpectedly contracted in August, with sales to the US tumbling amid the escalating trade war between the two nations. Exports decreased 1% in dollar terms from a year earlier, while imports declined 5.6%, leaving a trade surplus of $34.84 billion, the customs administration said on Sunday.

  • 9/27   EM Rally Hinges on Draghi Being the Dove Traders Want Him to Be
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- Investors looking for signs that the strongest rally in emerging markets in months is more than just a temporary reprieve will probably get it when the European Central Bank meets.The monetary authority is set to unveil a fresh salvo of stimulus, which may further embolden traders to look for yield across emerging markets. More than 80% of economists surveyed by Bloomberg predict ECB President Mario Draghi will announce the central bank’s resuming bond buying, and forecasters see the deposit interest rate falling to a record minus 0.5%.If those estimates are proven right, developing-nation stocks, bonds and currencies will probably extend a rally that was sparked earlier this month by the prospect of a meeting between U.S. and Chinese officials to discuss trade issues. The yuan’s one-month implied volatility fell last week the most in two years ahead of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China on Oct. 1.“The ECB meeting on Thursday will be crucial for setting the tone of sentiment in emerging markets,” said Paul Greer, a London-based money manager at Fidelity International, whose emerging-market debt fund has outperformed 97% of peers this year.The triggers of last week’s rally, “coupled with some cheap valuations in currencies after the August sell-off, make us tactically optimistic on the asset class for the next three weeks,” he said, adding that his fund is tactically overweight currencies and “more strategically overweight” credit and local duration in emerging markets.Listen here for the emerging markets weekly podcast.Turkey’s Big CutGiven the muted reaction from financial markets to the central bank’s 425-basis-point rate cut in July, slowing global growth, falling inflation and political pressure, the monetary authority will probably cut borrowing costs by 300-basis point this week, according to Bloomberg Economics“We are lowering and will lower interest rates to single digits in the shortest period,” President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a televised speech on Sunday. “After it falls to single digits, inflation will also slow to single digits”The lira has outperformed all of its peers this quarterMore Rates DecisionsEconomists see Bank Negara Malaysia maintaining its key rate at 3% on Thursday after the nation’s economy grew more-than-estimated in the second quarterING Groep NV is among the minority, expecting a cut, arguing that Malaysia’s economy will find it challenging to outperform in an increasingly unfriendly external trade environment.

  • 10/27   Hong Kong August visitors plunge 40% year on year, hotels half-full: finance chief
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Hong Kong visitor arrivals plunged nearly 40% in August from a year earlier, deepening from July's 5% fall, the finance secretary said as sometimes violent anti-government protests take a rising toll on the city's tourism, retail and hotel businesses.  Hotels in some locations had seen occupancy rates drop to about half, while room rates plunged 40-70%, Paul Chan said, citing industry sources.  July tourist arrivals fell 4.8% on the year, according to the Hong Kong Tourism Board, the first annual decline since January 2018 and the biggest percentage drop since August 2016.

  • 12/27   S&P Advice to South Africa: Beware What You Say About Eskom Debt
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- Talks around restructuring Eskom Holdings SOC Ltd.’s bonds must be approached carefully to avoid spooking the market, according to S&P Global Ratings.Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan said on Thursday the government will consult with the power utility’s debt holders on any reorganization and that there isn’t any real concern about haircuts.“Whether you are talking about a haircut or a re-profiling or a restructuring, one has to tread very carefully because it could possibly lead to what is seen as a distressed-debt exchange and be called a default,” S&P’s managing director and regional manager for Africa, Konrad Reuss, said in an interview on Friday. “That would be quite unsettling for the markets.”Eskom, which supplies about 95% of South Africa’s power, has amassed 450 billion rand ($30.5 billion) of debt and turned to the government for bailouts to remain solvent as it confronts massive cost overruns at two partially completed coal-fired plants. The government has proposed splitting the utility into generation, transmission and distribution units under a state holding company -- an option rejected by labor unions that fear it will lead to privatization and job losses.“We understand various options are being discussed to deal with Eskom’s financial distress,” Reuss said while attending the World Economic Forum on Africa in Cape Town. “For us, at this point, it is wait-and-see and get more information.”‘Need Details’S&P in March changed the outlook on its CCC+ ratings of Eskom to stable from negative after Finance Minister Tito Mboweni announced the allocation of 69 billion rand over three years to support the company. In July, Mboweni said the government will give Eskom an extra 59 billion rand over two years.“Eskom has various kinds of debt -- domestic, foreign, government-guaranteed and unguaranteed -- which makes it highly complex.” Reuss said. “The last thing you’d want to see is that unintentionally a default is being triggered.

    (Bloomberg) -- Talks around restructuring Eskom Holdings SOC Ltd.’s bonds must be approached carefully to avoid spooking the market, according to S&P Global Ratings.Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan said on Thursday the government will consult with the power utility’s debt holders on any reorganization and that there isn’t any real concern about haircuts.“Whether you are talking about a haircut or a re-profiling or a restructuring, one has to tread very carefully because it could possibly lead to what is seen as a distressed-debt exchange and be called a default,” S&P’s managing director and regional manager for Africa, Konrad Reuss, said in an interview on Friday. “That would be quite unsettling for the markets.”Eskom, which supplies about 95% of South Africa’s power, has amassed 450 billion rand ($30.5 billion) of debt and turned to the government for bailouts to remain solvent as it confronts massive cost overruns at two partially completed coal-fired plants. The government has proposed splitting the utility into generation, transmission and distribution units under a state holding company -- an option rejected by labor unions that fear it will lead to privatization and job losses.“We understand various options are being discussed to deal with Eskom’s financial distress,” Reuss said while attending the World Economic Forum on Africa in Cape Town. “For us, at this point, it is wait-and-see and get more information.”‘Need Details’S&P in March changed the outlook on its CCC+ ratings of Eskom to stable from negative after Finance Minister Tito Mboweni announced the allocation of 69 billion rand over three years to support the company.

  • 15/27   Years of forex market calm sends currency funds to the wall
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    The Chinese yuan's tumble is stirring hopes of a long-awaited volatility boost for forex markets but any rise will be too late for the currency funds that have shut down this year, and it may be too small to hold out much hope for those that remain.  Currency traders who wring out more profits when prices move wildly consider themselves cursed by the prolonged calm in forex markets brought about by rock-bottom interest rates and central banks moving more or less in tandem on monetary policy.  The yuan's Aug. 12 plunge below 7-per-dollar lifted vol - shorthand for the implied volatility gauges embedded in currency options - to eight-month highs.

  • 16/27   Philippines Confirms African Swine Fever Caused Pig Deaths
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- The Philippines confirmed that African swine fever caused the deaths of hundreds of pigs in towns near its capital, becoming the latest Asian country to be affected by the highly contagious viral disease.“We are still waiting on whether the virus affecting the hog areas in the country is weak or virulent,” Agriculture Secretary William Dar said in a briefing Monday. He said majority of the 20 blood samples sent to the U.K. tested positive for the virus.President Rodrigo Duterte approved the formation of a task force that will include the police and the military to prevent an outbreak, Dar said. The virus potentially came from hotels, restaurants or even overseas Filipino workers bringing pork products from affected countries, he said.The Agriculture Department on Aug. 19 opened a probe following increased swine deaths from backyard raisers and ordered that all pigs within one kilometer radius of the infected farms be culled. Economic Planning Secretary Ernesto Pernia last month said the possible entry of the deadly swine disease that’s spreading across Asia is among the risks to inflation this year. The virus isn’t known to harm humans.“We are not in an epidemic stage yet,” Dar said. There are new incident areas from initially three locations in Rizal and Bulacan provinces, he said. “We have yet to see how fast the virus can spread.”Read: The Deadly African Virus That’s Killing Asia’s Pigs: QuickTakeHog raisers must promptly report unusual animal deaths in their farms, Dar said. The Philippines’ 260 billion-peso ($5 billion) swine industry provides livelihood to millions of Filipinos as small backyard raisers account for 65% of the industry, the agriculture department said.Livestock accounts for 17% of Philippine agricultural output. Philippine hog production was more than 2.3 million metric tons based on live weight in 2018, valued at 242 billion pesos. As of July 1, the nation’s hog inventory was estimated at 12.7 million heads, little changed from a year ago.The Southeast Asian nation in July banned pork imports from Germany, citing concerns about food safety in one of the world’s major shippers.

The trade surplus rose to 20.2 billion euros ($22.27 billion) after a downwardly revised 18.0 billion euros in the prior month.
