China stimulus just first step to market stabilization

Wall Street is desperately in search of shock absorbers to help the stock market stabilize, and China’s move earlier Tuesday to cut interest rates and free up more cash for banks to lend is a first step.

But Wall Street would like to see a few more things happen before they have more confidence that the recent bloodletting has played itself out and isn’t the start of a bigger problem for markets.

The general consensus on Wall Street is that the latest financial market crisis was “made in China.” Market strategists interviewed by USA TODAY cite China’s surprise decision two weeks ago to devalue its currency as the trigger for the latest market instability. The devaluation of the Chinese yuan, experts say, was viewed as a major negative, as it smacked of panic on the part of the Chinese government and suggested that the world’s second-biggest economy was in more dire straits than previously believed.

The Greece Effect: German stocks sink then soar

Emerging-market investments are widely expected to get clobbered when the Federal Reserve begins raising interest rates as soon as September. Not according to one analyst. Economist David Rees of Capital Economics says emerging-market stocks are “set for a revival in 2016-17.”

That defies many predictions that such investments will be pummeled much as they were in 2013, when Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke signaled the central bank was poised to phase out a U.S. bond buying program that had been pushing down long-term interest rates. Money poured out of countries like Brazil and South Africa and into the rising yields of Treasury bonds and other U.S. fixed-income assets. More

Disney shares fall after lower profit outlook

Shares of Walt Disney Co. plunged more than 8% Wednesday after the media giant revealed fiscal third quarter revenue that fell short of estimates and lowered its estimate for the cable networks’ profit.

The Burbank, Calif.-based company, which owns ESPN, ABC and family resorts worldwide, said Tuesday afternoon that quarterly income rose 11% from a year ago to $2.5 billion as all major business lines reported higher revenues. But its revenue for the quarter, $13.1 billion, fell short of $13.2 billion estimated by analysts. More

Netflix stock rallies, closes at record high
Netflix (NFLX) has been on fire lately. Shares of Internet streaming powerhouse climbed to a record high Tuesday, closing the trading day up nearly 8% to $121.15.

The company reported second-quarter earnings last month and indicated growth that passed even its own expectations. The company recorded an addition of more than 3 million subscribers in Q2, and revenue of $1.64 billion (compared to $1.34 billion a year ago). More

Here’s the ‘wild card’ for a Fed hike this year
Kudos to the Atlanta Fed GDPNow model forecast, which nailed that ugly GDP number while plenty on Wall Street didn’t. “Wall Street doesn’t control it or pay for it and can’t fire it if it says the wrong thing. It can destroy myths without having to worry about flipping hamburgers for the rest of its life,” writes Wolf Richter in his Wolf Street blog that deftly explains how that model works.

A one-two punch from growth-data aftershocks plus a view from Bill Gross and others that a June interest-rate hike is out to pasture continue to maul the dollar this morning.

William Adams, head of research at FastMarkets, says the dollar is on its way to a long-overdue correction. With a rate hike now pushed back to September or later, he says the market will finally “realize the dollar has run ahead of the fundamentals.” More

U.S. stocks turn lower after jobless claims, earnings
NEW YORK (MarketWatch) — U.S. stocks edged lower on Thursday as investors assessed weekly jobless claims and mixed earnings reports from Alcoa, Bed Bath & Beyond and other companies.

The number of Americans filing for initial unemployment benefits rose by less than expected, while the rate of layoffs remained historically low. Meanwhile, wholesale inventories edged up, as sales fell, in a sign that demand over the winter slowed down.

Market participants were gearing up for more earnings reports, after aluminum giant Alcoa unofficially kicked off the first-quarter U.S. earnings season on a downbeat note. More

Pope's key science advisor is atheist who believes in 'Gaia, not God'...
St. Francis of Assisi’s hymn Laudato Si’ spoke of “Brothers” Sun and Fire and “Sisters” Moon and Water, using these colorful phrases figuratively, as a way of praising God’s creation. These sentimental words so touched Pope Francis that he named his encyclical after this canticle. More
