  • StockBeat: Deutsche Bank - Commerzbank Merger Hits the Rocks

    April 25, 2019, 08:12

    By Geoffrey Smith

    Investing.com -- A flurry of news from the banking sector stands out amid a generally weak start to Thursday in Europe’s stock markets.

    Germany’s two biggest private-sector banks, Deutsche Bank (DE:DBKGn) and Commerzbank (DE:CBKG), have called off their merger talks, under pressure from shareholders, regulators and unions.

    The mooted merger was never the preferred option of either bank, as both are more preoccupied with trying to turn round chronically unprofitable operations. The talks only came about largely because of political pressure from Germany’s finance ministry to ensure the survival of a national champion.

    Such logic convinced neither regulators, who feared the creation of a new ‘too-big-to-fail’ bank that would hold German policy-makers hostage, nor the labor unions of both institutions, who feared up to 30,000 job cuts.

    Deutsche was up 3.2% on relief at having escaped the nightmare of such a politically charged merger, although the shares’ valuation at only 0.24 times their book value shows that it still has huge challenges ahead. Commerzbank’s stock is down 2.0%, reflecting the loss of a potential buyer.

    Even so, it’s not impossible that a bidding war of sorts could still emerge for the bank: Italy’s Unicredit (MI:CRDI) SpA and Dutch-based ING (AS:INGA) have both indicated interest, according to recent reports, and BNP Paribas (PA:BNPP) had also looked at Commerzbank a couple of years back. None of those shares is reacting with any enthusiasm to the notion that they may now be more likely to get their hands on it.

    Elsewhere, Barclays (LON:BARC) was down 2% despite a generally decent set of results notable for its investment bank division again faring better than many U.S. rivals in the turmoil of the first quarter. That should bolster the position of CEO Jes Staley, who will face a motion at next week’s shareholder meeting to admit activist investor Edward Bramson on to the board. Bramson is pushing for the investment bank to be scaled back drastically.

    Meanwhile, Royal Bank of Scotland's (LON:RBS) shareholder meeting was preceded today by news that CEO Ross McEwan is to step down. He’ll still serve for the next year. Under McEwan, RBS has returned to profitability and settled most of the governance-related scandals that plagued it for the last decade.

    None of this is stopping a wave of profit-taking in markets across the continent, however, The benchmark Euro Stoxx 600 was down 1.10 points, or 0.3% at 389.78, while the FTSE 100 was down 0.5% and the German DAX down 0.3%, depressed by more gloomy statements from central banks in Canada and Japan, and by weak economic data out of South Korea.

  • XRP Dips Below 0.29759 Level, Down 6%

    April 25, 2019, 07:45

    Investing.com - XRP fell bellow the $0.29759 level on Thursday. XRP was trading at 0.29759 by 03:45 (07:45 GMT) on the Investing.com Index, down 6.46% on the day. It was the largest one-day percentage loss since April 11.

    The move downwards pushed XRP's market cap down to $12.57304B, or 7.13% of the total cryptocurrency market cap. At its highest, XRP's market cap was $79.53400B.

    XRP had traded in a range of $0.29619 to $0.30130 in the previous twenty-four hours.

    Over the past seven days, XRP has seen a drop in value, as it lost 11.78%. The volume of XRP traded in the twenty-four hours to time of writing was $1.47768B or 2.81% of the total volume of all cryptocurrencies. It has traded in a range of $0.2923 to $0.3354 in the past 7 days.

  • Dollar Surges to New High on Dovish BoJ, BoC Outlooks

    April 25, 2019, 07:09

    Investing.com -- The dollar has come off Wednesday’s highs in early trade in Europe on Thursday, but is still well bid on the back of news flow suggesting the U.S. economy remains a pillar of relative strength.

    The euro fell to its lowest level in nearly two years against the dollar late Wednesday, at $1.1141, after disappointing business surveys from Germany and France earlier in the day. It has barely recovered since. By 03:00 AM ET (0700 GMT), it was at $1.1160. The British pound also continues to languish at around $1.2911.

    The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of six major currencies, surged to its highest since May 2017 overnight after the Bank of Japan joined its counterpart in Canada in talking down the economic outlook.

    The BoJ said it would hold off from any interest rate increases for at least another year, sending the dollar briefly to a new 2019 high of 112.38 yen, although it has since retreated to 111.78, failing yet again to make a sustained break through the 112 level.

    The dollar also hit a three-month high of $1.3509 against the Canadian dollar Wednesday, when the Bank of Canada cut its growth forecast for this year to 1.2% from 1.7%, and dropped language about the possible need for future interest rate hikes from its policy statement.

    Meanwhile, the drumbeat of weak economic news from elsewhere across the globe continues. The South Korean won fell to its lowest in over two years against the dollar after data showed the economy contracted by 0.3% in the first quarter, while the Indian rupee has fallen to just above 70 against the dollar on fears that the sharp rise in oil prices this week will hit its current account. India is one of the world’s largest oil importers.

    The dollar’s rally may still be tempered by disappointments from the ongoing corporate earnings season, although results so far have generally outperformed expectations. That leaves Friday’s U.S. GDP report as the next likely big trigger for the greenback.

  • Oil Prices Mixed Amid Unexpected Jump in American Crude Inventories

    April 25, 2019, 05:10

    Investing.com - Oil prices were mixed on Thursday in Asia after a surprisingly big jump in American crude inventories.

    U.S. Crude Oil WTI Futures traded 0.1% lower to $65.81 by 1:01 AM ET (05: 01 GMT). International Brent Oil Futures rose 0.1% to $74.61.

    Crude stockpiles in the country rose about five times more than expected last week, the U.S. Energy Information Administration reported.

    Inventories rose by 5.48 million barrels in the week ended April 19, compared with forecasts for a build of 1.26 million barrels. In the previous week to April 12, crude stockpiles fell by 1.4 million barrels.

    Meanwhile, imports grew the most since mid-March amid new momentum in the market's four-month long rally.

    Oil prices are on track for possible gains of 3% this week, boosted by reports that the U.S. would scrap all sanction waivers for importers of Iranian oil after May 2, heightening concerns about supply in the market.

    On Wednesday, Brian Hook, U.S. Special Representative for Iran and Senior Policy Advisor to the Secretary of State, said the sanctions have slashed Iran’s government more than $10 billion in oil revenue.

    "Before sanctions...Iran generated as much as $50 billion annually in oil revenue. We estimate that our sanctions have already denied the regime more than $10 billion since May (2018)," Hook said.

    Saudi Arabian Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih said there is no need for immediate action, while the International Energy Agency said “comfortable” levels of spare capacity remain.

  • Crypto Down; Japan Crypto Exchanges Hit with Sudden Inspections

    April 25, 2019, 04:46

    Investing.com - Major cryptocurrencies traded in the red on Thursday morning in Asia, with Bitcoin losing steam after hitting a one-month high the day before.

    Bitcoin dropped 2.25% to $5,409.4 by 12:46 PM ET (04:46 GMT), after rising to a one-month high of $5,586.3 mid-week.

    Other coins also went downward. Ethereum shed 3.38% to $163.4, XRP lost 6.88% to $0.29792 and Litecoin slid 0.60% to $72.451.

    The drop in crypto prices pushed the market cap down to $176.7 billion.

    Sudden on-site inspections at the crypto exchanges in Japan two days ago shocked the crypto community.

    Japan’s Financial Services Agency reportedly inspected crypto exchange Huobi Japan and Fisco Digital Asset Group without notice. Reuters reported that the regulators aimed to find out if the crypto exchanges have been doing enough to protect their customers and check for legal compliance.

    Reuters also said that the regulators believe that Huobi and Fisco have failed to protect their customers adequately and comply with the anti-money laundering requirements. This could lead to a suspension of their operating licenses.

    “The FSA conducted detailed checks with a view to administrative setup, considering that there are insufficient points in the management systems of the two companies and their efforts to protect customers,” Reuters reported.

    Both Huobi and Fisco have not made a statement regarding the reported event.

    In other news, South Korean tech giant Samsung (KS:005930) has invested $2.9 million into crypto hardware startup Ledger. Ledger manufactures hardware cryptocurrency wallets.

    Samsung is reportedly tapping into the crypto and blockchain space. Earlier this year, it unveiled that its upcoming smartphone the Galaxy S10 series will support cryptocurrencies with crypto wallet functionality. It is also said to be developing its own private Ethereum-based blockchain.

  • Yen Edges Up After BOJ Meeting; Yuan Down on PBOC’s Comments

    April 25, 2019, 03:46

    Investing.com - The Japanese yen edged up on Thursday in Asia following the release of the Bank of Japan (BOJ)’s interest rate decision.

    The BOJ said it would keep interest rates extremely low until at least 2020. The key monetary stimulus settings were also left unchanged unchanged.

    The central bank noted that it mostly likely will not hit its 2% inflation target in the next three years.

    The USD/JPY pair last traded at 111.90 by 11:30 PM ET (03:30 GMT), down 0.2%.

    Meanwhile, the USD/CNY pair was up 0.1% to 6.7259.

    The People’s Bank of China is not planning to tighten or relax monetary policy. Liu Guoqiang, vice governor of the central bank, said on Thursday at a briefing in Beijing, adding that the current policies are “appropriate.”

    The USD/KRW pair was up 0.3% to 1,157.81 following the release of data that showed South Korea’s GDP shrank the most in a decade in the first quarter of 2019.

    A South Korean Deputy Finance Minister reportedly said on Thursday that the government would intervene if there are any abnormal moves, including intensified volatility, in the foreign exchange markets.

    Meanwhile, the euro was flat against the USD. Overnight, data showed German business sentiment unexpectedly fell in April.

    The GBP/USD pair was also largely unchanged after Conservative lawmakers decided Wednesday against tweaking leadership rules that would have allowed a fresh attempt to oust U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May.

    The USD/CAD pair rose 0.04% to 1.3492 after the Bank of Canada kept rates at 1.75%, citing a decline in global growth activity due to trade concerns.

    “Ongoing uncertainty related to trade conflicts has undermined business sentiment and activity, contributing to a synchronous slowdown across many countries,” the bank said in a statement.

  • Asian Markets Mixed; KOSPI Slips on Weak GDP Data

    April 25, 2019, 03:07

    Investing.com - Asian markets were mixed in morning trade on Thursday. Chinese stocks continued to underperform while South Korea’s KOSPI slipped following the release of weak GDP data.

    China’s Shanghai Composite and the SZSE Component were down 0.5% and 0.6% respectively by 10:45PM ET (02:45 GMT). Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index traded near flat.

    Chinese stocks were under pressure this week as traders questioned the likelihood of further stimulus in China after a politburo statement issued on Monday said regulators are getting increasingly concerned of asset bubbles.

    Trade headlines are in focus as China and the U.S. prepare for another round of trade talks next week.

    The discussions “will cover trade issues including intellectual property, forced technology transfer, non-tariff barriers, agriculture, services, purchases and enforcement,” according to a White House statement.

    South Korea’s KOSPI slipped 0.1% after data showed the country’s GDP shrank the most in a decade in the first quarter of 2019.

    Exports, which account for about half of Korea’s GDP, were weaker than expected amid weak demand from China, the nation’s biggest market.

    Chipmaker SK Hynix Inc (KS:000660) surged 2% after the company reported a 69% drop in first-quarter operating profit, which was in line with expectations, but added that it expects demand for memory chips to recover later this year.

    Meanwhile, LG Electronics Inc (KS:066570) also rose as much as 2.5% following the company’s announcement that it would move manufacturing to Vietnam, a lower cost location. The move could boost annual production capacity by 83%, the company said.

    Japan’s Nikkei 225 rose 0.4%. The Bank of Japan is set to release its monetary policy statement later in the day. Markets widely expect the central to keep interest rates unchanged.

    Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will meet leaders of the European Union today and U.S. President Donald Trump later this week.

    Down under, Australia’s markets are closed due to a holiday.

  • Facebook Tops Q1 Earnings Estimates; Shares Rise

    April 24, 2019, 07:48

    Investing.com – Shares of Facebook rallied in after-hours trade on Wednesday as first-quarter results topped expectations on both the top and bottom lines.

    Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) rose more than 6% postmarket after closing down 0.85% to $182.58 in regular trading.

    The social media giant reported earnings per share, excluding items, of $1.89 on $15.08 billion in revenue for the first quarter. Earnings were up That beat expectations from Investing.com for earnings of $1.61 a share on $14.97 billion in revenue.

    Monthly active users (MAUs), one of the key metrics that analysts use to gauge the health of the company, increased 8% to 2.38 billion in the first quarter, above estimates for 2.36 billion. Daily active users (DAUs) showed robust growth for the quarter, rising 8% to 1.56 billion.

    "(W)e estimate that more than 2.1 billion people now use Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, or Messenger (our "Family" of services) every day on average, and around 2.7 billion people use at least one of our Family of services each month," Facebook said in a statement.

    Mobile advertising revenue represented about 93% of advertising revenue for the 2019 first quarter, up from approximately 91% of advertising revenue in the first quarter of 2018.

    The social media company saw margins more than halve to 22% for the quarter from 46% a year earlier as costs surged 80% to $11.8 billion. Costs included $3 billion set aside for legal expenses due to the FTC inquiry. That reduced earnings under GAAP rules to 85 cents a share.

The matter remains unresolved, and there can be no assurance as to the timing or the terms of any final outcome," Facebook added.

  • Dollar Rides Euro, Loonie Weakness Higher

    April 24, 2019, 05:54

    Investing.com - The U.S. dollar inched higher against a basket of major currencies Wednesday on a slump in the euro. But gains in the greenback were limited somewhat as the Canadian dollar moved off lows after the Bank of Canada governor left the door open to future rate hikes

    The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, rose 0.36% to 97.675.

    USD/CAD rose 0.39% to C$1.3474, but eased from its highs of C$1.3521, after Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz suggested that a rate hike was more likely rather than a cut if growth forecasts of Canadian GDP bouncing back to 2.2% by the end of 2020 are correct.

    The less dovish remarks comes after the Bank of Canada left its target rate unchanged at 1.75% and dropped its bias for future rate hikes, citing concerns about economic growth.

    “Governing Council judges that an accommodative policy interest rate continues to be warranted,” the new policy statement says. “We will continue to evaluate the appropriate degree of monetary policy accommodation as new data arrive.”

    The dollar was also supported by a drop in the euro as German business sentiment unexpectedly fell in April, raising fears that a significant rebound in euro area economic growth in the second half of the year is unlikely.

    EUR/USD fell 0.33% to $1.1188.

    GBP/USD fell 0.06% to $1.2929 after Conservative lawmakers decided Wednesday against tweaking leadership rules that would have allowed a fresh attempt to oust U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May.

    The move comes as lawmakers within the prime minister's party call on her to step down as Brexit talks with opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn have reportedly hit a snag.

    USD/JPY rose 0.08% ahead of the Bank of Japan's monetary policy announcement due later today.

    The central bank is expected to stand pat on monetary policy, but its inflation and GDP projections will likely garner attention. Reuters reported last week that CPI is not expected to approach the Bank's 2.0% target by the end of the forecast period.

  • Stockbeat - Anadarko Rallies as Occidental Tops Chevron's Offer

    April 24, 2019, 04:58

    Investing.com - Anadarko Petroleum surged Wednesday after Occidental Petroleum topped Chevron 's takeover bid for the company, setting the stage for a bidding war in the Permian Basin.

    Occidental proposed acquiring Anadarko for $76 per share -- $38 in cash and the rest in stock. The offer values the exploration-and-production company at $57 billion including debt. That's above Chevron's $65-per-share agreement to acquire the company.

    Anadarko (NYSE:APC) rallied more than 11%, Occidental (NYSE:OXY) fell 2% and Chevron (NYSE:CVX) fell more than 2%.

    Occidental's efforts to acquire Anadarko have been rebuffed several times. The latest offer suggests that Occidental it is prepared to engage in bidding war with Chevron to land Anadarko.

    In March, Occidental laid out three acquisition proposals for Anadarko, in which it made the case that its offer represented both superior strategic and financial value.

    "Occidental believes its proposal is superior both financially and strategically for Anadarko’s shareholders, creating a global energy leader with the scale and geographic diversification to drive growth and deliver compelling value and returns to the shareholders of both companies," the company said in a statement Wednesday.

    The tie-up would create a production powerhouse and deliver $1.5 billion of cost cuts, improving free cash flow by $3.5 billion a year by 2021, according to Occidental, which is $1.5 billion more than the value Chevron believes it can extract from the deal.

    "Anadarko has great assets," Occidental CEO Vicki Hollub said in a interview on CNBC Wednesday. "We are the right acquirer ... because we can get the most out of the shale."

    Attention now turns to Chevron as many anticipate that the oil major may up its bid for Anadarko amid plans to enhance its upstream portfolio and strengthen its positions in large shale, deepwater and natural-gas basins.

  • Loonie Falls As Bank of Canada Keeps Rates Steady

    April 24, 2019, 02:32

    Investing.com - The greenback rose on Wednesday, while the loonie slumped after the Bank of Canada kept interest rates steady as expected.

    The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a basket of six major currencies, rose 0.1% to 97.41 as of 10:44 AM ET (14:44 GMT).

    USD/CAD rose 0.6% to 1.3502 after the Bank of Canada kept rates at 1.75%, citing a decline in global growth activity due to trade concerns.

    “Ongoing uncertainty related to trade conflicts has undermined business sentiment and activity, contributing to a synchronous slowdown across many countries,” the bank said in a statement.

    Elsewhere, the euro was lower, as German business morale fell in April. EUR/USD slipped 0.2% to 1.1197, nearing its lowest level since early March.

    “Trade pressure and concerns about global protectionism are weighing over Europe’s overall external position and challenging its growth trajectory. We are looking at underperformance relative to the U.S. for now,” said Karl Schamotta, director of foreign exchange strategy and structured products at Cambridge Global Payments.

  • Stocks - Wall Street Flat After Boeing, Caterpillar Earnings

    April 24, 2019, 01:51

  • Stocks - U.S. Futures Flat Ahead of Earnings Torrent

    April 24, 2019, 10:41

    Investing.com - U.S. futures were flat on Wednesday, pausing for breath after the S&P 500 and Nasdaq posted new record highs on the back of upbeat earnings reports.

    Dow futures rose 29 points or 0.1% by 6:40 AM ET (10:40 GMT), while the S&P 500 futures contract was flat. Tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 futures inched up half a point.

    There are 42 companies set to report on Wednesday, including Boeing (NYSE:BA), Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT).

    Snap (NYSE:SNAP) jumped 5.4% in premarket trading after saying its losses were less than expected for the first quarter.

  • Top 5 Things to Know in the Market on Wednesday

    April 24, 2019, 09:28

    Investing.com - Here are the top five things you need to know in financial markets on Wednesday, April 24:

    1. Boeing, Caterpillar , Facebook lead earnings parade

    A whopping 42 companies out of the S&P 500 are set to release their numbers on Wednesday.

    Ahead of the open, AT&T (NYSE:T) will be under the magnifying glass after Verizon (NYSE:VZ) reported mixed results on Tuesday, while investors digest details of how HBO plans to face off against Disney’s new streaming service.

    Boeing (NYSE:BA) (NYSE:BA) also releases quarterly numbers with attention on the status of its grounded 737 MAX jetliner.

    Fellow industrial bellwether Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT) will also provide insight into the state of the global economy.

    The pace won’t slow at the market close as the focus shifts to numbers from Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Visa (NYSE:V). Analysts will be on the watch for the social media company’s user engagement and the progress with the computer giant’s cloud business, while Visa may offer a glimpse into the current state of credit in the world’s largest economy.

    Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) fans and short-sellers will be set for the ongoing debate with the company expected to swing back to a loss after two consecutive quarters of profit.

    2. Wall Street pauses near record highs

    After earnings sent the S&P 500 and Nasdaq to record highs a day earlier, U.S. futures pointed to a more cautious open on Wednesday after signs that China is easing up on its monetary stimulus and after another disappointing German business confidence survey.

    At 5:21 AM ET (9:21 GMT), the blue-chip Dow futures had gained 4 points, S&P 500 futures had slipped 1 point, while the Nasdaq 100 futures declined 7 points. None had fallen by more than 0.1%.

    The S&P 500 managed to erase all the steep losses it saw in late 2018 by ending Tuesday above the previous record reached on Sept. 20. It closed just 0.3% below its intra-day record high of 2,940.91 hit on Sept. 21.

    With the Federal Reserve signalling it's still in neutral gear, earnings will be the main factor determining whether the index hits news highs ahead of Friday’s reading on economic growth in the first quarter.

    3. Oil breaks winning streak on surge in U.S. inventories

    Oil prices broke a two-day winning streak on Wednesday as a larger-than-expected surge in U.S. crude stockpiles prompted profit-taking near six-month highs.

    The International Energy Agency (IEA), a watchdog for oil consuming countries, also said Tuesday that markets are "adequately supplied" and that "global spare production capacity remains at comfortable levels."

    That eased concerns about market tightness after Saudi Arabian Oil Minister Khalid al-Falih told a conference his country won't immediately increase oil output to offset the impact of fresh U.S. action against Iran. The U.S. said on Monday it would end all exemptions for sanctions against Iran, demanding countries halt oil imports from Tehran from May or face punitive action.

    At 5:24 AM ET (9:24 GMT), U.S. crude oil futures were down 36 cents, or 0.6%, to $65.94, while Brent oil was down 21 cents, or 0.3%, at $74.30.

    The American Petroleum Institute said Tuesday that crude stockpiles surged by 6.9 million barrels last week. Official government data from the Energy Information Administration will be released at 10:30 AM ET (14:30 GMT), amid expectations for a build of just 1.26 million barrels.

    West Texas Intermediate oil was still on track for gains of 3% this week.

    4. BoC set to stand pat on rates

    The Bank of Canada will announce the results of its latest monetary policy meeting at 10:00 AM (14:00 GMT) Wednesday and is expected to keep interest rates on hold.

    The Bank of Japan and Turkey’s central bank are both expected to follow suit with no changes expected on Thursday.

    The three monetary policy announcements come ahead of the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England meetings next week.

    The Fed, which was the first of the major central banks to begin policy tightening, shifted gears this year with a pledge to be “patient”. In fact, markets currently price in more than a 50% chance that Powell and team will cut rates by the end of the year, according to Investing.com's Fed Rate Monitor Tool.

    5. U.S.-China trade talks to resume next week, target draft agreement

    High-level trade talks between the world’s two largest economies are set to resume next week in Beijing with the intention to draft an agreement before June.

    U.S. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders indicated late Tuesday that Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will meet with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He on April 30 in Beijing.

    Liu will then reciprocate by travelling to Washington for more talks on May 8.

    “The subject of next week’s discussions will cover trade issues including intellectual property, forced technology transfer, non-tariff barriers, agriculture, services, purchases, and enforcement,” Sanders said in a statement.

    The two sides are seeking to have a draft agreement by the end of May, a person familiar with the matter told Bloomberg.
