    South Africa ETF, currency hold gains as President Zuma resigns

    South African assets held their whopping daily gains as President Jacob Zuma resigned from office in a televised speech late Wednesday. His resignation had been expected after the leadership of the African National Congress party had given him 24 hours before facing a vote of no confidence. However, Zuma had refused to step down for much of Wednesday. His resignation ends a presidency that began in May 2009 and was plagued by corruption allegations and South Africa's deteriorating public finances. The iShares MSCI South Africa ETF closed 4.2% higher on Wednesday, while the South African rand rallied 2.1% against the U.S. dollar.

    U.S. stocks close higher for a third straight session

    U.S. stocks closed higher for a third straight session on Tuesday, with banks and consumer staples leading the market higher in a broad advance. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 40 points, or 0.2%, to 24,641. The S&P 500 added 7 points to 2,663, a rise of 0.3%. The Nasdaq Composite Index was up 32 points, or 0.5%, to 7,013. All three indexes had opened in negative territory but regained ground throughout the session. Despite that, at current levels they remain about 7% below record levels hit late last month, meaning they are still in correction territory. Financial stocks were among the biggest gainers of the day, with the sector up 0.5%. Wells Fargo & Co. jumped 2.7% after CEO Timothy Sloan reassured investors that the Federal Reserve's action capping its assets wouldn't hurt the bank. Separately, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. rose 0.9%. The day's gains were broad, with nine of the 11 primary S&P 500 sectors ending higher on the day. Energy was one of the two decliners, dipping 0.4% as oil prices stalled. In company news, Under Armour Inc. spiked 16% after it reported stronger-than-expected revenue.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    MoviePass lowers monthly subscription price to $7.95

    The cinema-going subscription service MoviePass, under fire Friday for abrubtly and irreversibly revoking the membership of a number of users over terms-of-service violations, has lowered its monthly price to $7.95 from $9.95. The lowering last summer of the monthly cost to less than $10 from earlier levels that were several times higher caused the company, in which Helios & Matheson Analytics Inc. holds a controlling interest, to experience a surge in demand. It explained to MarketWatch at the time that it was able to take its price that low, allowing movie goers to attend as much as one screening a day for less than the average cost in many cities of a single theater ticket, because its subscriber rolls and data held value to third parties. In a news release late Friday, MoviePass said it drives more than 5% of the total U.S. box office.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

But Germany has an even tighter job market without higher inflation, and one measure of job market tightness — the number of people who quit jobs to take new ones — remains low.

    Align Technology rockets higher after earnings, then turns around

    Align Technology Inc. shot more than 7% higher in late trading Tuesday after announcing earnings, sending one of the best-performing stocks of 2017 toward yet more record highs, but shares turned around later in the extended session. The maker of Invisalign orthodontics reported fourth-quarter earnings of $10.3 million, or 13 cents a share, down from $1.01 a share a year ago due to charges related to the new tax law. Without the tax charge, Align said it would have reported earnings of $1.19 a share, easily beating average analyst estimates of 96 cents a share, according to FactSet. Revenue was $421.3 million, up from $385.3 million a year ago and well higher than analysts' average estimate of $396 million. Align's first-quarter forecast also handily beat analyst estimates, as the company said it expects to report earnings of 94 cents to 98 cents a share on revenue of $400 million to $410 million. Analysts on average expected first-quarter earnings of 88 cents a share on revenue of $396 million, according to FactSet.

    Dow, S&P 500 end at a records but Nasdaq finishes flat in choppy trade

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished firmly higher on Thursday buoyed by stronger-than-expected quarterly results in a pair of industrial heavyweights, but the day's trade wasn't without its bumps. The Dow closed up 140 points, or 0.5%, to end at 26,392, marking a fresh all-time high for the blue-chip benchmark. It had slipped in to negative territory in the morning. Dow components Boeing Co. and 3M Co. combined to contribute about 90 points to the average. Shares of Caterpillar, which saw up-and-down action throughout the session, added about 7 points. 3M and Caterpillar both reported earnings that were better than Wall Street expectations, while Boeing has been one of the best drivers of the price-weighted equity gauge. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 index also closed with a slight gain but enough to log a record, up less than 0.1%, at 2,839. The Nasdaq Composite Index , however, finished in negative territory but mostly flat on the day as technology shares have bounced around over the past two sessions. Investors reacted mostly to upbeat earnings but comments from an interview from President Donald Trump, where he endorsed a strong dollar , added to day's volatility, pushing the dollar gauge into positive territory and off a three-year low. A stronger dollar can create a headwind for multinational companies doing business abroad but a firmer greenback also has been viewed as underlining a strong U.S. economy.

    Apple stock falls after Morgan Stanley lowers target

    Apple Inc. shares fell 0.8% in Thursday morning trading after Morgan Stanley analysts weighed in on the question of iPhone X supply and demand Thursday, lowering their price target to $200 from $205 but maintaining an upbeat view on the company's prospects. Rumblings of weak supply chain orders for the first half of the 2018 calendar year are "largely noise," wrote the analysts, led by Katy Huberty, though they acknowledge that "late adopters" might be more sensitive to iPhone prices as the year goes on. Huberty also believes that analyst estimates for March-quarter average selling prices "mis-modeled" the mix of higher-priced phones. She forecasts iPhone ASPs of $815 for the period, far above consensus estimates for $752. Apple shares are up 43% over the last 12 months, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 31%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

The move happened while the European Central Bank, which left interest rates unchanged on Thursday, held its news conference. ECB head Mario Draghi's mention of the strong eurozone economy helped propel the shared currency higher.

    Dow makes a run at best one-day gain in 7 weeks as Boeing's stock provides 80-point lift

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average Wednesday afternoon was on track for its best single-session rise in about seven weeks on the back of a sharp rise in shares of Boeing Co. The Dow was rising more than 320 points at at 26,113, which would mark a fresh intraday high. Boeing's share rally , up 3.5%, or around $12, was contributing about 80 points to that burst higher. A $1 move in any one of the price-weighted Dow's 30 components equates to a 6.83-point swing. Moves in Boeing's stock have been the the most influential for the blue-chip average over the past several months. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 index was up more than 1%, driving past a round-number at 2,800, while the Nasdaq Composite Index also was rallying sharply higher, up 1.2% at 7,300. The run-up for equities followed an upbeat report from the Federal Reserve's Beige book, an anecdotal account of business conditions in the central bank's key business districts. The report suggested that stubbornly low wage growth may be on the rise. Wednesday's move for stocks also comes after the market experienced a reversal on fears of a government shutdown and weakness in the energy market.

    President Trump says stock market's 'new number' may be 30,000 for the Dow

    President Donald Trump on Thursday suggested that the next milestone for the closely watched Dow Jones Industrial Average after it broke above 25,000 is about 20% higher. Offering comments to media, the Republican president said breaking through the milestone was a "big barrier" because critics didn't think that it could be achieved soon. On Thursday, the Dow broke through 25,000, and if it ends at that level, it would represent the fastest 1,000-point climb to the round number, 23 days, in the benchmark's history. Trump, however, intimated that further moves ahead may be his administration's goal, by way of promoting a raft of fiscal stimulus measures that include corporate tax cuts and increases to spending. "I guess our new number is 30,000," he told reporters. Trump has more directly, than other presidents, gauged his overall performance in terms of the Dow and jobs. Most recently, the Dow was up 140 points, or 0.6%, at 25,060, the S&P 500 index was up 0.4% at 2,724, while the Nasdaq Composite Index was climbing by 0.2% at 7,076.

    Dow on pace for fastest 1,000-point surge to a milestone in history

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average on Thursday appeared set to surge above 25,000 for the first time, carving out a fresh intraday record, but also notably notching its fastest climb to such a milestone ever. The blue-chip benchmark is on track to post a close above 25,000 in a blistering 23 trading days, which would represent the fastest rally to such a mark, outpacing the 24 sessions it took to ascend to 21,000 last March and the move to 11,000 back in May of 1999. Of course, its worth noting that with each climb higher that the percentage moves become less significant. In fact, the move to 25K represents a meager 3% advance for the Dow average compared with the more than 10% surge to 11K about 19 years ago.The moves for the Dow come as investors have grown increasingly bullish about an array of fiscal stimulus measures espouse by President Donald Trump's administration that are being viewed as pro-business. Meanwhile, volatility in the market has been curiously absent, fostering a relatively steady climb for equity markets. To be sure, these advances toward milestone are largely psychologically significant rather than having more meaning to investors. On Wednesday, the S&P 500 index broached its own psychologically important level above 2,700, while the Nasdaq Composite Index eclipsed 7,000 on Tuesday. Both benchmarks are looking to join the Dow in positive territory. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Video game publishers have 'significant upside' as industry trends continue to shift

    Analysts at BTIG on Wednesday initiated coverage on video game publishers Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. and Activision Blizzard Inc. with buy ratings, and on Electronic Arts Inc. with a neutral rating. The BTIG analysts, led by Brandon Ross, wrote in a note to investors that they believe there is still significant upside for video game publishers, even with the multi-year run stocks have enjoyed as profits have climbed higher and multiples have expanded. "Activision, Take-Two and EA have all seen significant gains over the past four years. As we began to research the space, our knee-jerk reaction was 'we missed it' and we wished we had covered these names earlier," Ross wrote. "The transformation of games from standalone packaged media to connected entertainment services is not a finite tailwind for publishers. As players engage with games, publishers are better able to monetize and continuously create richer and more valuable experiences for consumers, leading to further engagement and profits." The reason for EA's neutral rating is analysts have concerns about the company's ability to execute on the industry trends. Shares of Take-Two have gained close to 132% in the trailing 12-month period, while shares of Activision have gained 78% and EA shares have gained 39%. By comparison, the S&P 500 index is up 20% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 25%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Eurozone business activity at its strongest since 2011: IHS Markit

    Business activity in the eurozone revved higher in December, led by strong factory output and an upturn in the service sector, data firm IHS Markit said Thursday. The preliminary, or flash, composite purchasing managers' index came in at 58.0, the highest since February 2011, and above FactSet's consensus estimate of 57.2. "The PMI is signalling an impressive 0.8% GDP increase in the fourth quarter," said Chris Williamson, chief business economist at IHS Markit, in a statement. The manufacturing PMI rose to a record of 60.6 in December. Overall, French business-activity growth outpaced that of Germany's for a third straight month, said IHS Markit. "France has been the big surprise this year, rapidly pulling out of its malaise to help shift the eurozone expansion into a higher gear," said Williamson.

    The digital currency bitcoin rallied on Monday, hitting its latest in a series of records in the first full day of trading for bitcoin futures. The price of a single bitcoin rose 14.5% to $17,209.28, according to data and news website Coindesk.

    Mattel's credit downgraded to a 'junk' rating at Moody's

    Mattel Inc.'s senior unsecured bond ratings were downgraded three notches to a "junk" rating of Ba3 from Baa3 at Moody's Investors Service, which cited the toy maker's weak performance this year and the lowered profit expectations for the holiday season. Moody's also cut Mattel's short-term rating to Not Prime from Prime-3. The rating outlook is stable. Moody's said it expects the lowered profit outlook to contribute to "much higher than previously expected year-end leverage." Separately, S&P Global Ratings downgraded on Monday Mattel's credit rating, which it already had rated "junk," one notch to BB- from BB, with a negative outlook.
