  • The Ticking Time Bomb Under The World Economy [View article]
    I blindly believed in Paul Krugman's articles circa 2010-2011. But it never happened. It's certain that ECB will step in at the right time to resolve crisis if it ever occurs.

    BTW, never bet against any central banks. They create money in a jiffy and make problems disappear. Be it Fed or ECB.

  • Financial representatives of the G7 countries came away from an informal two-day gathering hosted by Britain's George Osborne satisfied that Japan's extraordinary monetary policy maneuvers are targeted at vanquishing deflation not exchange rate targeting. Although German finance minister Wolfgang Schäuble did mention "the relatively high levels of liquidity" present in the market (the obligatory German nod to conservative monetary policy), U.S. Treasury officials said the "conversation [with Japan] was good." Osborne also noted that when it comes to fiscal policy, "there are more areas of agreement between [the G7] than is commonly assumed." [View news story]
    As far as I can remember even Japan has a year end target for Nikkei.

  • Apple (AAPL -2.3%) has tumbled below $500 following Nomura's big PT cut. Multi-Fineline's (MFLX -20.3%) warning also might not be going over well. Nomura backs up the WSJ and Nikkei's reports by stating its own checks indicate weaker-than-expected iPhone 5 sales; it now expects 48M sales in FQ1, and 39M in FQ2, but is raising its iPad forecasts. Echoing a recent CLSA note, Nomura thinks Android's Asian dominance has become a problem for Apple. Sterne Agee, meanwhile, believes all is well. [View news story]
    Whilst all these news pulling the stock down why no one from AAPL is commenting on this perceived low demand issue? Are they gonna let their quarterly results talk?

  • A little more on H-P (HPQ): The company alleges Autonomy was responsible for $5B worth of pre-merger "accounting improprieties, disclosure failures and outright misrepresentations." A senior Autonomy exec is said to have come forward after founder/CEO Mike Lynch was fired in May, after which H-P contacted the SEC. This could get ugly. The PC division's operating margin fell to 3.5% from FQ3's 4.7%, though services and printing margins rose, aided by job cuts. $124M in shares repurchased. Shares -11.1%.
