Goldman warns buybacks are 'plummeting,' ending a big source of buying power for the market

[Mon 12:58] Corporate buybacks are "Plummeting" as companies tighten their purse strings, and it could have a big impact on the market, Goldman Sachs warned in a note to clients. In the second quarter, S&P 500 share buybacks totaled $161 billion, about 18% less than the first quarter, the firm found. The House Financial Services Committee is currently looking at ways to potentially reform buyback spending laws. The slowdown in buybacks is part of a larger trend of spending cuts, Goldman found, as trade uncertainty and stalling global growth weigh on the market. Total cash spending fell by 4% year-over-year in the first half of the year, according to the firm, and they anticipate cash spending for the entire year will decline by 6%, making it "The sharpest annual decline since 2009.". "Companies spend less cash when policy uncertainty is high. During August, global economic policy uncertainty registered the highest level in at least 20 years. Historically, growth in aggregate S&P 500 cash spending has been weaker during periods of high policy uncertainty. The combination of an ongoing trade conflict and next year's US presidential election will likely result in lingering uncertainty," Goldman's David Kostin wrote. The 2021 median yield for S&P companies is 2.2%, according to the firm, while the median dividend in the Goldman Sachs Rising Dividend Growth Fund, which includes the companies noted above, is 4%. - CNBC's Michael Bloom and Yun Li contributed reporting.  Top ^   Read on CNBC >   Google the news >>

Five key themes that Aviva Investors think will drive financial markets

[Mon 12:28] Global economic growth has continued to slow in 2019 and, as the outlook remains "Fragile and uncertain", is likely to cast a shadow over investor sentiment. Looking at the longer historical context, the economist noted that just nine of the past 40 years have seen weaker global growth, so 2019 is looking like it will a year of bottom-quartile macroeconomic performance. Looking ahead, Robertson said the outlook "Remains one of low growth rather than no growth" - although this could change if labour markets weaken or consumer confidence plummets. "The absence of such pressures today provides the monetary authorities with almost total freedom to react to growth concerns and downside risks and that is what they are doing. Until growth revives and/or risks dissipate, they will be comfortable in adopting such an approach." In keeping with Aviva Investors' close watch on weakening global growth, the firm also expects the US-China trade war to frame the investment landscape for the foreseeable future, predicting periods of calm followed by US president Donald Trump ratcheting up his 'America First' agenda and China responding. "In the event that trade tensions ease, global growth could be stronger, but the most likely scenario is one where uncertainty persists and that this in itself will be sufficient to hurt growth," the economist said. The asset management sees a return to the large-scale Keynesian fiscal interventionism of the 1960s and 1970s as "Highly unlikely" but added that fiscal policy seems set to add a small boost to growth in coming years - which is a big difference from drag created by years of austerity.  Top ^   Read on FE Trustnet >   Google the news >>

Made in Taiwan: Seeds of Future Bond-Market Volatility

[Mon 11:02] Asia's insurance behemoths, particularly in Taiwan, pose a growing risk to the U.S. corporate-bond market after a multiyear binge on greenback debt. Insurers in Asia's more developed economies have promised returns far greater than their government-bond markets can provide, and they need to hold far more assets than their domestic bond markets can satisfy. Corporate bond markets in the U.S. and the eurozone are 81% and 41% of the size of their life insurers' total assets, respectively. In Korea, Taiwan and Japan, the respective figures are 10%, 8% and 4%. SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS. How do you think this will affect the U.S. bond market? Join the conversation below. The IMF notes the risk posed by U.S. dollar bonds with call options. In August, Verizon Communications redeemed a callable 2046 Formosa bond worth just north of $2 billion. Taiwanese insurers alone own 4% of U.S. corporate credit and 9% of the dollar bonds of non-U.S. companies, with even higher proportions at longer maturities.  Top ^   Read on Wall Street Journal >   Google the news >>

[Mon 11:00] The Company continues to expect to be adjusted EBITDA break-even in the fourth quarter of 2019, which is historically the Company's strongest quarter. Estimates of financial results are inherently uncertain and subject to change, and actual results may differ materially due to the completion of management's final review, final adjustments and other developments that may arise before the Company's financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2019.

Investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or as superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, the non-GAAP financial measures presented by the Company may be different from similarly named non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The Company's outlook for fourth quarter of 2019 earnings is provided on a non-GAAP basis because certain reconciling items are dependent on future events that either cannot be controlled, such as interest rates, or reliably predicted, such as stock-based compensation.

Brexit uncertainty drags on again as major markets lack conviction [Video]

[Mon 10:59] Markets have opened on Monday in a state of renewed limbo again. The major damp squib has come from the "Super Saturday" session of UK Parliament which has failed to provide markets with any further clarity of whether the UK will be leaving the EU on 31st October or not. Broad market sentiment also reflects a lack of direction, as Treasury yields continue to crab sideways, and commodities consolidate. Wall Street closed lower on Friday with the S&P 500 -0.4% at 2986, whilst US futures are a shade higher today at +0.1%. Asian markets have been mixed, with the Nikkei +0.3% whilst the Shanghai Composite is -0.4%. European markets seem set to add to the caution with FTSE futures all but flat and DAX futures +0.1%. In forex majors there is a mixed look to USD across the majors, gaining against EUR and JPY whilst AUD and NZD are mild outperformers. Higher lows and higher highs have significantly improved the outlook and now Thursday's strong bull candle breakout above $0.6805 is a key move that opens a test of the $0.6895 key September high. Positive momentum indicators are driving the move, with the RSI pushing into the 60s, Stochastics strongly configured and MACD lines accelerating higher. Oil is another market that has been a real slog in the past couple of weeks.  Top ^   Read on FXStreet >   Google the news >>

As required by law, Johnson sent an unsigned letter to the EU late Saturday seeking a delay to Britain's upcoming October 31 departure from the bloc, but then sent a signed letter saying he does not favor another Brexit extension. "My view, and the government's position, that a further extension would damage the interests of the U.K. and our EU partners, and the relationship between us," Johnson wrote to European Council President Donald Tusk.Johnson has long stated that he plans to take the U.K. out of the EU on October 31 come what may, and his minister in charge of Brexit again emphasized that position.  Top ^   Read on YAHOO! >   Google the news >>

Ex-Bank of England chief fears new economic crisis: Mervyn King warns slow growth could unleash 'financial Armageddon'

[Mon 06:53] The world is heading for a political and economic crisis which could unleash a 'financial Armageddon', former governor of the Bank of England Mervyn King has warned. The world is caught in a slow growth trap,' King said.

Delivering the keynote lecture to financial leaders at the International Monetary Fund, the former governor argued that the rules introduced by the US Congress after the crisis of 2007-09 meant that US central bank, the Federal Reserve, lacked the powers to act and that could result in a 'financial Armageddon'. King says the priority for policymakers is to get the world out of the trap of slow growth and 'to prepare for the next financial crisis'. The former governor stepped down from the Bank of England in 2013 after ten years in the job, having helped steer the UK through the storm of the financial crisis and the meltdown in the euro area.

[Mon 05:52] A stark warning was made by the former Bank of England governor, Mervin King, who was BoE governor during the 2008 crisis, that the global financial system was heading for a devastating financial crisis. At its meeting, the IMF said the world was experiencing a synchronised growth slowdown, concentrated in the major economies. As the Financial Times noted in its report on the latest data: "The debate over the past five years, as growth has shown signs of slowing, is whether China and its political system can shoulder the pressures associated with a cooling economy. These include higher unemployment, distressed banks and waning prospects for many people in less developed regions that have yet to benefit from the country's growth from the decades-long opening up of the economy." In another expression of the global slowdown, the German government has revised down its forecast for growth in the world's fourth largest economy for next year, from 1.5 percent to 1 percent, and projected only 0.5 percent growth for 2019. IMF managing director Kristalina Georgieva opened her contribution to the discussion urging policymakers to undertake measures to boost the world economy. Referring to the situation in financial markets, where some $15 trillion worth of bonds- around one quarter-were trading with negative yields, she indicated the consequences of low growth. Zhu Min, a former deputy managing director at the IMF, and now chairman of the National Institute of Financial Research at Tsinghua University, said the real challenge was not just a recession as classically defined, whether growth was above zero or below.  Top ^   Read on World Socialist Web Site >   Google the news >>

I expect markets to remain bid."

Modernisation and associated costs the ‘biggest challenge’ for London Market: BLM

[Mon 05:17] Damian Cleary, partner and head of London Market at BLM. The main challenges in the re/insurance market are modernisation and the associated costs, according to Damian Cleary, partner and head of London Market at BLM. Speaking to Baden-Baden Today Cleary said his firm had continued to experience a low-return financial environment, weak investment yield and historically low pricing on the sales side. "The supply chain of insurance and reinsurance is long and thus expensive, requiring change. Coinciding with the high capital expenditure of resulting innovation and modernisation, the returns of which will take time to feed through, and significant loss creep of major events, balance sheets are coming under strain and equally severe scrutiny by the regulators," he said. He pointed to advances in technology as part of the solution to cutting costs, saying products and tools that help reduce the cost of doing business in the market were "Very likely to be analytics-based". This type of technology can leverage data, which he called "a very valuable commodity produced by every insurance and reinsurance business". He added that the London Market needs to demonstrate that it understands global clients' risk exposures and needs to provide the right price and good value. Ahead of the annual event in Baden-Baden Cleary said he expected delegates would be debating how to reconcile the high regulatory burden and cost of doing business in the London Market with capturing emerging and local markets.  Top ^   Read on Intelligent Insurer >   Google the news >>

IATA urges financial relief for Hong Kong’s aviation sector

[Mon 04:20] Hong Kong's widespread anti-government protests are taking a "Significant" and "Unprecedented" toll on the city's aviation sector that has led IATA to urge its authorities to provide financial relief for the sector. In its latest research, the trade body raised the red flag on the ongoing unrest, which is well into its fourth month, saying that it has had "Significant impact on air passenger traffic flows in one of the region's main airline hubs". In terms of year-on-year growth, passenger departures from Hong Kong saw a drop of more than 15% in August, which IATA says is a "Steep decline that is almost unprecedented for major markets". Airlines' scheduled seats are also showing a downward trend in the later months of the year, though IATA says that the size of reduction indicates "The downturn is expected to be of a temporary nature". To this end, the aviation body is urging the Hong Kong government to step in with financial assistance. "Maintaining aviation connectivity is critical to Hong Kong. The government should consider financial relief measures to support the 330,000 jobs and 10.2% of GDP dependent on the aviation and tourism sector," IATA says. IATA's ominous report comes days after Cathay Pacific released traffic figures for what it called a "Challenging" September.  Top ^   Read on Flightglobal >   Google the news >>

Trump News: Stock Market Will Rally If Trump Resigns, Pence Is President

[Mon 04:01] On the contrary, Raymond James argues Wall Street will love the conservative, evangelical - and more predictable - Pence compared to the moody Donald Trump. After the initial shock and a Wall Street dip on Trump's resignation, "We think the market rallies as Pence is a predictable, traditional, conservative choice," wrote Raymond James in a report published Wednesday. The company believes Trump resigning remains a "Low probability event." This, because Trump doesn't want to validate allegations of wrongdoing by resigning. On the other hand, Raymond James believes it's also quite "Possible" Trump will decide to resign because he wants to avoid becoming infamous as the only third president in U.S. history to be impeached. If he's convicted by the Senate, Trump will become the first president to be removed from office. A president Pence would bring back a sense of calm, argues Chris Meekins, one of the Raymond James analysts who wrote the report. Meekins said the report was one of the firm's most widely read. He also said the firm decided to write the report because Trump's impending resignation - and a Pence presidency - kept coming up in conversations among Republicans in Washington, D.C. "Independently, different people associated with Trump's orbit brought this idea up unsolicited," said Meekins in surprise.  Top ^   Read on International Business Times >   Google the news >>
