Facebook Shares Jump on Strong Fourth Quarter Results



Facebook Inc. posted solid financial results during the fourth quarter. Earnings and revenue surpassed expectations, driven by strong growth in its mobile advertising business as companies continue their push to reach consumers on mobile phones.

The company showed no indications of slowdown in growth, as quarterly profit came in at $3.57 billion, more than twofold of the $1.56 billion it posted a year ago. The social media firm also reported sales rose 51% to $8.81 billion, surpassing analyst estimates.

Monthly active users on Facebook also rose 17% on-year to 1.86 billion, with 1.23 billion checking their accounts daily and 1.74 billion users accessing it through their mobile phones.

Facebook has now solidified its position as the number 2 in the mobile advertising market, following Alphabet Inc.'s Google.

In November, the company cautioned that ad growth would slow significantly due to ad load limits . But the results showed little indication of this flagged slump as revenue jumped to $8.81 billion from $5.84 billion a year prior.

Adjusted profit is at $1.41 per share, higher than the estimated $1.31 average by analysts. Facebook shares jumped as much as 3.6% in late hours trading after the report and settled at $133.23 in NY trading

Australia Retail Sales Dip 0.1% In December



The total value of retail sales in Australia was down a seasonally adjusted 0.1 percent on month in December, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Monday - coming in at A$25.611 billion.

That missed forecasts for an increase of 0.3 percent following the downwardly revised 0.1 percent gain in November (originally 0.2 percent).

For the fourth quarter of 2016, retail sales advanced 0.9 percent on quarter to A$74.985 billion.

That was in line with expectations following the 0.1 percent contraction in the three months prior.

Yahoo Japan Surges as Profit Gets Boost from Ads, E-Commerce



Yahoo Japan Corp. posted its biggest increase since 2013 after quarterly earnings easily topped estimates as profit was bolstered by the strong performance in advertising and online shopping from mobile phones.

The company's shares jumped as high as 17% intraday in Tokyo trading, hitting their daily upward limit. As of 10:35 a.m., the stocks were trading 15% up, adding around $3.4 billion in market value.

Operating income during the December quarter came in at 51.8 billion yen or $460 million, against the estimated 49.5 billion yen. Sales hit 221.4 billion yen, easily topping the 219.5 billion yen.

The strong financial results come amid the company's continued expansion into the mobile platform, which represented for over half of the total advertising revenue for the first time in the company's history. Online shopping via its auction service platform also strengthened its performance, thanks to strict cost management and higher spending by users. Its financial services business also posted a stronger than anticipated performance.

Analysts, who initially had doubts regarding its future performance have changed their view on its potential and sees sustainable growth for the company. Analyst at Cantor Fitzgerald Naoshi Nema upgraded the price target from 400 yen to 660 yen per share.

Euro Weakens on Political Concerns, as Dollar Falls Against Yen



The euro dropped to a one-week low versus the U.S. dollar on uncertainty regarding French politics prior to the presidential vote along with other upcoming elections in Europe. Investors eyed French politics, with far-right National Front leader Marine Le Pen launching her presidential bid, pledging to combat globalisation and withdraw France out of the eurozone.

In late trading, the euro weakened by 0.4 percent versus the US dollar to $1.0742. It fell to $1.0705, its weakest level since Jan. 31. The greenback fell to two-month lows versus the Japanese yen amid a decline in U.S. Treasury yields. The spread between U.S. two-year and Japanese two-year debt yields shrank to nearly 136 basis points, the narrowest in two months. The greenback last fell 0.7 percent at 111.81 yen, and had previously weakened to 111.63, its lowest since late November.

According to analysts, strong equity markets and upbeat U.S. economic data have supported the previous year's bullish U.S. dollar demands. However, the lack of clarity on expected pro-dollar-tax-and-spending-initiatives by the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump as well as concerns on the outlook of the dollar and global trade have weighed on the currency.

Disney Posts Strong Quarterly Profit, Unexpected Revenue Drop



Disney posted first-quarter profits that topped estimates, but revenue fell short of expectations.

In its quarterly earnings report, the company reported first-quarter earnings of $1.55 per share on a revenue of $14.78 billion. The figures denote a 3% annual decline in revenue and a 10% decline in per-share profit. Analysts anticipated the company to report earnings per share of $1.49 per share on a revenue of $15.26 billion. Profit was boosted by a 13% jump from Disney's theme parks across the globe.

Revenue in majority of its business segments also missed estimates, according to Disney. Disney's consumer products and interactive media segment cashed in around $1.48 billion revenue, missing estimates of $1.75 billion, as the segment faced toughed comparison to the success of franchises in the year-prior period.

Revenue for the firm's media networks business clocked in at $6.23 billion, under the estimated $6.42 billion. Operating income in the segment also fell 4% year-on-year. The lower-than anticipated revenue for October to December was weighed down by the decline in advertising revenue at ESPN and due to the movie business' performance compared to its record success a year earlier.

The stock was initially down 2% in extended trading, but reversed losses and was last trading 1.4% lower.

Dollar Weakens as U.S. Treasury Yields Decline



The dollar weakened after two days of gains, weighed down by the decline in U.S. Treasury yields amid market uncertainty regarding President Donald Trump's economic policies. U.S. benchmark 10-year Treasury note yields were down to a three-week low of 2.325 percent.

Trump is set to meet Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and the U.S. president is expected to reiterate his opposition to a firm dollar and a weak yen, which might further weigh on the greenback. The Japanese yen climbed, amid the unease surrounding global political risks in Europe, which eventually pulled down U.S. Treasury yields. The dollar index was down 0.2 percent to 100.27, as the US currency weakened by 0.3 percent to 112.05 yen. The euro edged higher versus the dollar from more than one-week lows. Its recent path has been tied to the developments regarding the French presidential elections.

The euro fell 0.3 percent versus the Japanese yen at 119.76 yen, and was higher by 0.1 percent against the dollar at $1.0687.

Indian Government Bond Volatility Surges on RBI’s Unexpected Decision



The Reserve Bank of India's policy making committee ruled to keep interest rates unchanged on Wednesday and shifted from an accommodating stance towards a neutral gear, catching investors and traders off-guard.

The unexpected decision caused India's 10-year yield to jump 31 bps on Wednesday and another 12 bps the following day as investors began to taper their bets for additional easing. A measure of 10-day volatility on noted has since risen to 26.7%, its highest since 2013 from the 4.6% on Thursday. Forex reserves of local government and corporate debt fell by 8.3 billion rupees or $124 million during the release of the policy statement, ending a six-day winning streak.

RBI's decision marks the third time that the panel has taken the route contrary to market expectations since it was established in October. It prompted a fivefold surge in bond volatility and caused benchmark notes to record the biggest lost in almost four years.

Authorities maintained borrowing costs despite stating that the economy was unlikely to rise beyond its inflation target of 5% in March. Consumer prices growth decelerated to 3.41% in December, the slowest since November 2014. RBI is eyeing 4% inflation through 2021 in the medium-term, while allowing it to move in a range between 2%-6%.

Greek finance chief chides IMF for delaying bailout deal



Greece's finance head lambasted the International Monetary Fund for wasting its time on internal disaccords, saying it defers a decision on their third rescue agreement.

Greek Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos urged the global institution to decide on its participation in the country's €86 billion ($91 billion) bailout package as he reiterated the latter's demands were anchored on wrong figures.

IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde previously warned Greece won't secure a special sweet accord as she implied the international organization won't withdraw its demands for reforming pension and tax policies.

She said the IMF needs to apply the principles which they apply to all nations since they lend money to the international community. It is determined to avoid repeating events which led to the country's first and second rescue deals.

Fxwirepro: Usd/sgd Consolidates Around 1.42 Mark, Bias Remains Neutral



USD/SGD is currently trading around 1.4219 marks.

It made intraday high at 1.4232 and low at 1.4191 levels.

Intraday bias remains neutral till the time pair holds key resistance at 1.4250 marks.

A daily close above 1.4250 will test key resistances at 1.4297, 1.4409, 1.4506, 1.4568, 1.4686 and 1.4851 levels respectively.

Alternatively, a consistent close below 1.4200 will drag the parity down towards key supports at 1.4136/1.4083/1.3972/1.3819/1.3775/1.3704/1.3646 levels respectively.

Important to note here that 20D, 30D and 55D EMA heads up and confirms the bullish trend in a daily chart. Current downside movement is short term trend correction only.

Positioning is inconclusive at this point, with prices offering no clear cut signal to initiate a long or short trade. We will continue to remain on sidelines for the time being.
