ECB Concerned About Strong Euro

European Central Bank (ECB) minutes show concern that the strong Euro could hamper its ability to hit inflation targets.
Editor's Remarks: Eurozone growth has been buoyant in the first half of this year, leading to increased inflationary expectations and speculation that the ECB may start to ease back on its €60bn a month quantitative easing programme. But this has led to a strong Euro, which is at a two and half year high against the US dollar and up by close to 12% year to date. The ECB’s July meeting minutes’ show concern that the high Euro may choke off growth and hamper the central bank’s efforts to hit its 2% inflation target, indicating a wish to prevent any further appreciation. Minutes from the July meeting of the US Federal Reserve show a similar problem – weak inflation data is leading to growing doubts about further US interest rate rises. A tricky balancing act for both central banks at their upcoming September meetings.

Corporate America Squeezes Alt-Right

Major US technology and payment companies are banning right-wing groups from using their services.
Editor's Remarks: US businesses are reacting to the violence in Charlottesville by prohibiting hate groups from using their services on the grounds that the violence incited by these groups violated their terms of service and acceptable-use policies. Silicon Valley tech firms such as GoDaddy, Twitter, Apple and Squarespace have led the way by ditching a number of right wing groups and websites. And now payment companies such as MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discovery have followed suit by shutting down the use of their payment systems on websites that espouse far right views. The Charlottesville violence, and Donald Trump’s continued support for Confederate symbols in southern US states, is set to become an increasingly divisive issue in the US, and the debate about whether banning right wing groups is a freedom of expression issue has not even started.

Buffett's Utility Acquisition Founders

Berkshire Hathaway’s $9bn cash bid for Texan power utility Oncor may fall through.
Editor's Remarks: Warren Buffett’s investment company has been finding it difficult to find investment targets and is sitting on $100bn of cash. A move earlier this year, with Brazilian PE Fund 3G Capital, to acquire Unilever for $143bn failed and Buffett’s latest acquisition could suffer the same fate. Berkshire had agreed to buy EFH, the 80% owner of Texan electricity transmission business Oncor, in a deal that values Oncor at $18bn including its debt. But activist fund Elliot Asset Management claimed that the deal did not maximise bond holder interests, counter-bidding with an offer valuing Oncor at $18.5bn and has now bought Oncor debt that gives it the power of veto on any future deal. As the US market hits all-time highs, acquisition targets are difficult to come by, and funds are looking to extract as much value as they can from whatever is out there.

China Tech Earnings Beat Estimates

Tencent recorded its highest ever quarterly earnings while Alibaba’s easily beat expectations.
Editor's Remarks: Alibaba and Tencent shares have been on a roll, climbing close to 80% and 70% respectively so far this year, and they have released quarterly earnings that back up this rise. Tencent’s second quarter 2017 net income was up 70% to $2.17bn, driven by a 54% rise in gaming revenues and a new record of 963m monthly active users of its messaging and payment app WeChat. Alibaba’s first quarter 2017/8 earnings doubled to $2.07bn on a 56% rise in revenues due to strong growth in its e-commerce business, which made up 86% of revenues. Both are looking at new areas of expansion – Alibaba is focusing on cloud computing, and Tencent is investing in AI. The Chinese tech giants are definitely in the big league now – Tencent’s market cap is $387bn, and Alibaba’s is $392, compared with Amazon’s own $474bn and Facebook’s $492bn.

HBO Hacked Again

Several of the TV station’s social media accounts have been hacked only a month after Game of Thrones scripts were stolen.
Editor's Remarks: Hacking group Ourmine has previously hit the accounts of the Spotify, Facebook, Google and Twitter CEOs. And it has now hit several HBO Twitter and Facebook accounts, including those for its Game of Thrones show, leaving a message to the HBO team to “please contact us to upgrade the security.” This hack comes at an embarrassing time for Time Warner owned HBO as only last month a different hacker had stolen company data and Games of Thrones scripts, which led to HBO offering the hacker $250,000 as a reward for identifying security vulnerabilities. TV station hacking is getting quite common now – a hack on a post-production company working for Netflix earlier this year resulted in the leaking of the latest season of Orange is the New Black.

Trump Orders Chinese Trade Investigation

Trump signed a memo on Monday to investigate China’s trade practices with the US – specifically their abuse of intellectual property.
Editor's Remarks: The memo is intended to investigate the “theft of intellectual property by foreign countries” which Trump claims has cost the US “billions and billions of dollars each and every year”. After the investigation, the President will have the authority to fight back with a range of penalties including controversial tariffs. While this sounds serious, officials at the White House have hinted that the probe could take over a year to complete so don’t expect results any time soon. This comes at a time when China is increasing their efforts to climb to the top of various high-tech industries by embarking on an initiative coined “Made in China 2025". Considering this new focus, Trump’s memo might be an attempt to put pressure on China to help deal with the North Korea situation, especially considering the White House has already made clear that they will implement more generous trade policies should China do so.

Air Berlin Files for Insolvency

The German government has stepped in to provide €150m of financing to keep planes in the air after shareholder Etihad stops sending money.
Editor's Remarks: Etihad’s investments in European airlines are going from bad to worse. The Gulf airline owns 49% of Alitalia, which went into administration in May, and now it has decided to cut-off funding to Air Berlin in which it owns a 29% stake. The German airline has lost around €2bn over the past six years, covered by Etihad’s cash injections, but Etihad itself lost $1.9bn in 2016 and may have reached the end of the road in keeping Air Berlin going. The German government has stepped in with funding and Germany’s largest airline, Lufthansa, is said to be in advanced talks to buy the ailing airline’s assets. Easyjet, Europe’s second biggest low-cost airline, is also said to be interested in a purchase. But Ryanair, Europe’s largest low-cost airline, is not happy with Lufthansa’s involvement which it says would run counter to German and EU competition rules.

IMF Warns Over China Debt

In its annual review of China’s economy, the IMF says GDP growth will average 6.4% until 2020, but debt will continue to build.
Editor's Remarks: The report highlights one of the major imbalances in China’s economy and forecast that non-financial sector debt could hit 290% of GDP, compared with 235% in 2016, as the government expands credit to fuel growth. But China’s IMF representative, Jin Zhongxia, has rejected the findings saying that China’s fast growth reflects structural adjustments and rebalancing and was not “merely driven by policy stimulus.” President Xi Jinping’s major focus ahead of the crucial Communist Party Congress this autumn is financial stability, and his government has been active in reigning in private corporations’ highly leveraged overseas acquisitions as well as trying to wean state-owned enterprises (SOE’s) off domestic bank debt. The IMF may be critical, but they are talking about the same issues that Xi is focusing on.

Uber Settles Privacy Violation Case

The company must submit to audits of its privacy and security systems for 20 years in its settlement with the US Federal Trade Commission.
Editor's Remarks: The FTC said that Uber’s “deception” – where it allowed executives and drivers to access its customers’ private location and trip data – had caused “substantial harm” to clients and misrepresented its privacy practices. Uber was also accused of failing to provide sufficient security against hackers to its drivers, leading to a 2014 breach when the personal details of 100,000 drivers were hacked. As part of the settlement, Uber will now have to submit to external audits of its privacy and security systems every two years for 20 years. Uber is getting used to court appearances – it is stuck in a lawsuit with Alphabet’s self-driving company Waymo, who alleges that Uber stole trade secrets, and is also fighting with shareholder Benchmark Capital over allegations that ex-CEO Travis Kalanick is blocking replacements for his position.

Amazon Hits Debt Market

The world’s largest online retailer raised $16bn in bonds to pay for its $13.7bn takeover of Whole Foods.
Editor's Remarks: Amazon has not been a big issuer of bonds in the past – its last one was in 2014, and it currently only has $7.8bn of debt outstanding. The $16bn issue, across seven tranches ranging from 3 to 40-year maturities, will be used to fund its entry into the grocery business and has been well received by investors despite general bond market weakness. This will be the third big corporate debt issue this year after AT&T raised $22.5bn and British American Tobacco $17.25bn. The 10-year tranche has been priced at a 3.17% yield, compared with 3.84% for the 10-year paper when it last issued $6bn of debt in 2014. Investors seem comfortable with Amazon’s strategy to blend Whole Foods' bricks-and-mortar grocery stores with its online business, and Amazon has the scale and balance sheet to benefit from low-interest rates available in the bond market.
