Why the Bankruptcy Code is turning into a double-edged sword for banks
Are banks getting boxed in after introduction of the Bankruptcy Code? The signs are pointing that way. Not only are they looking at prospects of steep haircuts (write-offs) on their loans; the Code would mean banks losing their business to the bond market. The Code is also upsetting the traditional rules of the games, where banks sold the personal guarantor's assets if a company was in default. This Monday, the Chennai bench of the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) ruled against State Bank of India (SBI) trying to do so. The case in question is between Veesons Energy Systems and SBI, in which the bench ruled in favour of the former's promoter and managing director, V Ramakrishnan, who gave personal guarantees to banks. SBI notified Veesons and Ramakrishnan on November 12 last year that the personal assets would be sold off. The company challenged it, stating it had applied to the Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction and till its application was decided, dues could not .

Regulator settled with Wells Fargo for 100 times less than law allowed: report
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau could have fined Wells Fargo $10 billion instead of $100 million last year for the unauthorized customer accounts fraud, Reuters reported Tuesday. The regulator settled for so much less to resolve the matter quickly, according to documents sent to Republican staff on the House Financial Services Committee whose chairman, Representative Jeb Hensarling, released a 929-page report on Tuesday entitled, "Did the CFPB let Wells Fargo 'beat the rap'?" One memo CFPB staff sent to Director Richard Cordray in July 2016 that was included in the report recommended the smaller figure, saying it was enough to act as an effective deterrent and close the matter quickly. CFPB spokesman David Mayorga told Reuters the agency has not had a chance to review the report, but defended its work policing Wells Fargo.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

FBI was wiretapping ex-Trump campaign chairman Manafort as late as this year: report
Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was secretly wiretapped by the FBI before and after the presidential election, CNN reported late Monday. The report said the surveillance continued until early this year, a time period when Manafort and President Donald Trump were still communicating, though it was not immediately clear if his conversations with Trump had been captured. CNN said special counsel Robert Mueller's investigative team has been given details of Manafort's intercepted communications. While sources told CNN the evidence may not be not conclusive, FBI investigators were reportedly concerned that Manafort was encouraging Russian meddling in the election. The secret surveillance order was first approved by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court in 2014, and renewed at some point last year. Earlier this summer, Manafort's home was raided by the FBI and his spokesman subpoenaed by the Mueller investigation. In late August, it was reported that Mueller was working with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in his Manafort investigation to share potential evidence of financial crimes. In a separate report Monday, the New York Times said Mueller's investigators told Manafort during the raid on his house that they planned to indict him.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Equifax executives subject to criminal probe: report
The U.S. Justice Department has begun a criminal investigation into sales of stock by Equifax Inc. executives, Bloomberg News reported, citing people familiar with the investigation. The probe will look into the stock sales of its chief financial officer, John Gamble; its president of U.S. information solutions, Joseph Loughran; and its president of workforce solutions, Rodolfo Ploder.

The transactions were not disclosed in regulatory filings for pre-scheduled trading activities. Lawmakers, state attorneys general and several regulators are scrutinizing the breach that compromised the privacy of 143 million U.S. consumers, according to Equifax statements. Equifax shares have fallen 35% since the breach was disclosed on Sept. 7 after the market close.

After 50 years, Rolling Stone is up for sale: report
Rolling Stone, the iconic music magazine, is being put up for sale, according to a New York Times report Sunday. Founder Jann Wenner is ready to give up control of the independent magazine, the Times reported, putting Wenner Media, which owns a majority stake in Rolling Stone, on the market. The move comes in response to financial difficulties, largely related to the decline in print advertising in recent years. Last year, Wenner Media sold a 48% stake to Singapore's BandLab Technologies Ltd. Wenner has hired bankers to explore a sale, the Times reported, but no potential buyers have emerged yet. Wenner started the magazine in 1967 in San Francisco with music critic Ralph Gleason, and it made its mark in the 1970s with rollicking articles by the likes of Hunter S. Thompson, P.J. O'Rourke and Cameron Crowe. "I've enjoyed it for a long time," Wenner told the Times, but selling is "just the smart thing to do."Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Goldman's stock surges after revenue growth target unveiled but some analysts are 'skeptical'
Shares of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. rallied Tuesday, to provide the biggest boost for Dow Jones Industrial Average , but some Wall Street analysts weren't as enthusiastic as investors about the details of Goldman's outline for growth. The stock climbed $6.29, or 2.8%, in afternoon trade. That added about 43 points to the Dow's price, which was up 63 points at 22,121, above the Aug. 7 record close of 22,118.42. Goldman said earlier it targeted $5 billion in incremental revenue over the next three years, including more than $1 billion from its fixed income, currency and commodities (FICC) trading business, another $1 billion from its investment management business and over $2 billion from its lending and financing efforts. JMP analyst Devin Ryan appreciated the "good detail" around where the biggest opportunities are seen, but characterized the areas of focus as "largely incremental more than transformational." Buckingham Research analyst James Mitchell reiterated his neutral rating, saying while Goldman's revenue growth target was "laudable," he remained "somewhat skeptical," as much of the growth is expected from "challenging markets where rivals are fiercely competing for market share." Goldman's stock has lost 5.3% year to date, while the SPDR Financial Select Sector ETF has rallied 6.7% and the Dow has run up 11.5%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Cohn exit from White House would be 'terrible' for markets: Ray Dalio
If Gary Cohn, a top economic adviser to President Donald Trump, were to leave the White House it would likely be "terrible" for financial markets, billionaire hedge-fund manager Ray Dalio said Tuesday at the Delivering Alpha conference in New York. "It would undermine future economic progress, in terms of reforms, and it would present a challenge in putting together the administration," said Dalio, the founder of Bridgewater Associates, the world's largest hedge fund. News reports have said Cohn, the former Goldman Sachs chief operating officer who was appointed to head up Trump's National Economic Council, has fallen out of favor with Trump. Cohn, along with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, is spearheading the administration's push for a corporate tax overhaul.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Alexion to fire 20% of global workforce in restructuring
Alexion Pharmaceuticals Inc. said early Tuesday that it plans to fire 20% of its global workforce as part of a restructuring effort. Alexion expects pre-tax savings of about $270 million in GAAP and about $250 million in non-GAAP each year by 2019, and said that expenses associated with the restructuring are expected to total $340 million to $440 million. The changes will affect GAAP EPS guidance but not the company's 2017 revenue guidance or 2017 non-GAAP EPS guidance. Alexion said the restructuring savings will allow it to meet financial ambitions, "including growing GAAP operating margin to 37% and non-GAAP operating margin to 50% in 2019," and that it plans to invest about $100 million a year into research and development starting next year. As part of the restructuring, the company said it plans to eliminate spend and workers associated with de-prioritized drug pipeline programs, close multiple company sites, including its Rhode Island manufacturing facility and certain regional and country-based offices, and outsource certain non-core finance and IT roles. Alexion also plans to relocate its headquarters from New Haven, Ct. to Boston, Ma. by mid-2018, with about 400 jobs based in Boston; New Haven will be Alexion's "Center of Excellence" with about 450 jobs based there in research labs, clinical supply and quality teams, nurse case management and enterprise business services. Alexion shares were not active in premarket trade. Shares have surged 33.7% over the last three months, compared with a 2.4% rise in the S&P 500 .Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

S&P 500 logs 31st closing record of 2017 as stock market bounces in 'relief rally'
U.S. stocks on Monday kicked off the first full week of trading in September with a bang, underlined by the S&P 500 ending at a record, as a raft of meteorological and geopolitical jitters gave way to a re-emergence of appetite for assets perceived as risky. The S&P 500 index closed up 1.1% at 2,488, marking its first record close since Aug. 7, buoyed by gains in the technology and financials sectors. Financials, as gauged by the PowerShares KBW Bank Portfolio and the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF booked their best daily rises since June 9, according to FactSet data. Bank stocks benefited from a resurgence in benchmark Treasury yields, with the 10-year Treasury note rising to 2.13%, compared with 2.05% late Friday. Higher yields support a banks's business models. The Dow Jones Industrial Average , meanwhile, jumped about 260 points, retaking is perch above 22,000, while the Nasdaq Composite Index closed up 1.1%. The technology sector has often been viewed as a gauge of Wall Street's tolerance for risk, seeing heavy bidding when investors feel bullish on the market. Monday's bounce was attributed to Hurricane Irma hitting Florida with less force than feared and North Korea refraining from conducting another missile test in the Korean Peninsula, factors that last week had helped push stocks and bonds mostly lower. The relatively milder impact of Hurricane Irma helped insurers, bracing for bigger liabilities from the storm, rally, highlighted by a 3.1% advance in the PowerShares KBW Property & Casualty Insurance Portfolio , a popular exchange-traded fund used to invest in the in the sector. Art Cashin, UBS's director of floor operations, on CNBC described Monday trading as a two-pronged "sigh of relief rally." In corporate news, shares of Apple Inc. bounced 1.8% ahead of what is expected to be the debut of a fresh lineup of iPhones and other products from the Cupertino, Calif.-based tech giant.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was trading firmly higher on Monday, aided by a pop in shares of Apple Inc., and Goldman Sachs Group.

A $1 move in any Dow component equates to a 6.89-point swing in the Dow. Overall , the market was enjoying a broad-based rally power by the financial sector and technology shares , both leading gains for the S&P 500 index . Most recently, the Dow was up 210 points, or 1%, at 22,008, the S&P 500 was 0.8% higher, while the Nasdaq Composite Index was looking at a gain of 1.2% at 6,433.
