Record Highs For All Four U.S. Equity Indexes

There were no Thanksgiving surprises from markets this year as stocks made new all-time highs and bonds continued their recent slide. All four major U.S. equity indexes - the Dow Jones Industrial Average, Standard & Poor's 500, Nasdaq Composite and Russell 2000 - set record highs this week, the first time that's happened since the last millennium (December 31, 1999). Treasuries continue to head in the opposite direction as investors anticipate higher inflation under President-elect Donald Trump. Yield on 10-year U.S. government debt added another eight basis points this week up to 2.29%. While the recent bond sell-off has punished investors chasing the long-end of the curve, it has also produced big winners. Pension funds struggling to find yield instruments matching long-term liabilities are due for a $100 billion reprieve. Providing the impetus for this week's risk-on sentiment was another bullish piece of U.S. economic data. Durable goods orders, a measure of business investment in long-lasting manufactured goods like construction equipment and computers, rose 4.8% in October, the fastest growth in a year. Economists had predicted a 2.7% gain. With economic growth and inflation already showing signs of picking up, President-elect Trump's pro-growth infrastructure plan and tax reform proposals are seen forcing the Federal Reserve into accelerating its current pace of monetary tightening. Futures markets are now pricing in 100% odds of a December interest rate hike, up from 95% a week ago. Oil Rallies On Opec Deal Hopes Oil prices surged this week as reporting on a potential Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) production cut followed a similar pattern. OPEC members are meeting next week in Vienna for another crack at agreeing on a compromise to cut crude production levels. Saudi Arabia, the group's largest oil producer and most influential voice, wants to curb global oversupply to ease pressure on its domestic budget. However, Iran and Iraq, OPEC's second and third largest producers, want to open the spigots to make up for disruptions over the past decade. Iran was just recently allowed to re-enter global crude markets after having economic sanctions lifted while Iraq's ongoing wars have hindered production. Leading up to each OPEC meeting this year, delegates from countries supporting a cut have expressed optimism over a deal. Leaked reports of productive talks trigger a spike in oil prices, only for non-cooperation from Iran and Iraq to derail any agreement, leading to a sharp sell-off. Rinse, repeat. The first act of the drama played out Monday when a delegate from Nigeria said negotiations on assigning quotas to individual countries made good progress. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude prices climbed 6.9% to more than $49/barrel Tuesday, the biggest two-day gain since September, before paring gains back to $47.50 by week's end. The issue is Iran and Iraq hold greater leverage. While both would like to see higher oil prices, their greater priority is short-term revenue maximization. The two countries, which together account for a quarter of OPEC crude production, also want an equal relationship with Saudi Arabia, which may ultimately have to make significant concessions to get a deal done. And then there is the matter of enforcing quotas, which historically is very difficult. IMF Warns Over Chinese Bank Debt Securitization With the dollar climbing to new 14-year highs, the yuan fell to fresh eight-year lows this week. Meanwhile, Chinese companies continue to buy up foreign-currency denominated assets. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is concerned Chinese banks are hiding bad debts through securitization much like American banks did with sour mortgages prior to the 2008 financial crisis. The resulting illiquid shadow credit, they warn, could soon become an untradeable ticking time-bomb. "The real issue isn't the volume of debt but rather the liability-side 'plumbing' that underlies the debt boom. If there's going to be financial crisis in China, this is where it will come from," said Jonathan Anderson, a principal at Emerging Advisors Group, in an interview with the Financial Times. One way to help Chinese banks cope with mounting bad debts would be a large currency devaluation, which the communist government insists is not necessary and will not happen. But as we've noted before: watch what they do, not what they say. China's Anbang Insurance Group, which has opaque ties high up in the Chinese government, continues to diversify its global real estate holdings. The company is reportedly set to pay Blackstone Group up to $2.3 billion for a portfolio of residential properties in Japan. Anbang already owns New York's famous Waldorf Astoria Hotel, which it bought for $1.95 billion in 2014, and Strategic Hotels & Resorts Group, which it purchased earlier this year for $6.5 billion (also from Blackstone). The Chinese insurance giant agreed a $14 billion deal earlier this year to buy Starwood Hotels & Resorts only for the transaction to fall apart when Starwood sought clarity on the company's funding sources. Anbang's latest deal with Blackstone would be its first foray into Japanese real estate. President-elect Trump's decision to pull the U.S. out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) could allow China to further dictate the free trade agenda in Asia and Latin America. China's delegate to recent trade talks in Peru said several countries previously party to TPP have expressed interest in joining the 16-country China-led Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP). -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

All Bets are Off: Cuba Policy in the Era of Donald Trump

Donald Trump won Florida. Marco Rubio kept his Senate seat. Cuban-American Representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Mario Diaz-Balart and Carlos Curbelo are still in Washington. Does this all-Republican political configuration automatically mean that the Trump administration will roll back President Obama's bipartisan normalization policy advances? Not necessarily. On Cuba policy, as on many other fronts, the Trump presidency presents a whole new set of complex dynamics. What we know: What Cuban-Americans do in Congress When it comes to Cuba policy, Rubio, Ros-Lehtinen, Diaz-Balart and Curbelo are certainly one-trick ponies. They will continue to oppose the Castro regime, will continue to support the embargo and will try to reverse Obama's Cuba overtures in every way they can. What we don't know: Where Trump really stands on Cuba During his 11th hour visit to Florida in early November, Donald Trump made several lukewarm remarks about how his administration would roll back Obama's rapprochement. That promise may indeed have won him some votes from the hard-right Cuban-American community, but there is scant evidence that Donald Trump is beholden to the Cuban-American community in any way. Even if post-election analysis proves that the hard-right Cuban-American community voted en masse for Donald Trump, this is more likely a result of their visceral loathing of Hillary Clinton, Democrats and Obama's normalization policies than of anything that Trump did, said or promised. Sadly, for the once electorally invincible Cuban-American community, Dade and Broward countries where many of them live, voted for Hillary Clinton. There goes the neighborhood. Some of Donald Trump's greatest foes during the Republican primary contest were Cuban Americans--Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. There is no bromance between these men. And there is no bromance between Trump and the Cuban-American community. They represent different strains of the Republican Party. In this context, the election of Rubio, Ros-Lehtinen, Diaz Balart and Curbelo could actually be regarded not just as the traditional Cuban-American vote, but as a countermeasure to Trump's shoot from the hip, 'cut and paste', business first, unpredictable brand of Republicanism. Trump is not a cold-war warrior. On the contrary, he sees himself as a Washington outsider, an admirer of Putin and, first and foremost, a businessman. Will Trump's very Republican pro-business instinct override the Cuban-American Congressional lobby's very Republican anti-Castro sentiment? Which lobby will have more power, the business lobby being organized by groups like Engage Cuba, the US Chamber of Commerce, the Cuba Consortium, Cuba Now and the US-Cuba Trade and Economic Council or the remnants of the Cuban-American National Foundation and the Cuban-American Washington establishment? Three scenarios in a Trump/Cuban-American line-up One: Rubio and Trump kiss and make up and Rubio and the Cuban-American Representatives convince Trump that rolling back President Obama's overtures is 'the right thing to do' just because it rolls back Obama's policies. The official Republican Party Platform is to do just such a thing. What would remain to be seen if this option prevails is how the human rights discourse of the anti-Castro forces adapts to the rounding up of illegal immigrants, to racial profiling and the barring of Muslim immigrants in the US. Two: Rubio and Trump kiss and make up and Trump convinces Rubio and some of the Cuban-American Representatives that the best way forward for the United States, for Cuba and for their constituents in Florida (and for Rubio's career) is to continue moving forward with normalization on a pro-business platform. Three: Trump and Rubio (and Cruz) continue despising each other but Trump moves forward with the US business lobby no matter what the Cuban-American Representatives and the anti-Castro lobby have to say. Should an advancing pro-normalization scenario win, the sticking points in the negotiations are likely to get stickier. Take, for example, immigration, Guantanamo, reparations and the complete lifting of sanctions. If Trump builds any kind of wall on the US-Mexico border and moves forward on his promise of reduced immigration, the preferential Cuban Adjustment Act will find itself up against the wall too. Its suspension would mean that dissatisfied Cubans would have no preferential entry into the US, and this increases political volatility and the potential for civil unrest in Cuba. In anticipation of such a move, a slow-trickle mini-Mariel exodus is already in the works. A hawkish State Department is not likely to look favorably at the dismantling of the US Naval base in Guantanamo or give any play to Cuban demands for its return. Given Trump's campaign promises to Venezuelans that his government would strongly oppose President Maduro, US military strategist are probably busy coming up plans that give the Naval base a key role in the process of signalling that the US ready to act. As for reparations, the US-Cuba business lobby includes those seeking reparations for nationalization during the early Revolution. Will Trump saddle up with Starwood Hotels and their new hotel concessions in Cuba or with Bacardi and their claims over the Havana Club brand among many? Lastly, as far as the end of the sanctions regime, there are too many other things to worry about now. Moreover, the partisan conflict between Democrats and Republicans over all kinds of policy platforms will be accompanied by an even more vociferous conflict between the various strands of a Republican party in major disarray and in search for what it means to be a Republican. Thus, repealing the Helms-Burton Act, something that seemed like a slam-dunk in a Clinton administration, is now too touchy an issue for the Republicans to put on the agenda. With Rome burning, Cuba is once again relegated to the back burner, unless a mini-Mariel exodus starts a kitchen fire. And this definitely will upend the normalization policy. What we know about how the Cubans might react to Trump In its usual blunt style, though not officially directly linked to the election results themselves (Trump and the Cuban-American Congress members), on November 9th, Cuba announced the launch of five days of nationwide military exercises to prepare troops to confront what the government calls "a range of enemy actions". A 'show of force' Cuban style, just in case. President Trump will have to develop an arm's-length relationship with his business interests to avoid accusations of conflict of interest. However, how his politically active and highly visible progeny divvy up the family business interests and the spoils of their newly acquired political booty remains to be seen. For a corporation with real estate, leisure, travel and entertainment interests, an aggressive move in Cuba seems like a natural. And Trump was actually ahead of the curve. In 1998, the company made an embargo-violating corporate scouting trip to Cuba. Trump casinos will definitely not be on the agenda since their disappearance from the Cuban scene is still regarded as highly symbolic of the integrity of the Revolution. Golf courses are a hot potato in Cuba because the island's water resources are already strained. Trump Towers developers would have to come to terms with erecting (or brand-licensing) their building on leasehold land owned by the Cuban state. Trump wines would meet stiff competition from European products already distributed on the island. A very worrisome part of a President Trump-led business promotion effort is the kind of business that a climate change-denying, pro-coal US administration is likely to promote and facilitate in Cuba. Moreover, Trump has political debts to pay to coal, Midwest big agri-business and the rust belt. A Trump administration is likely to protect the interests of these sectors over more sustainable ones such as renewable energy, organic agriculture and sustainable tourism. A Trump corporate advance is also not likely to have sustainability as a top of mind concern. The Trump corporate website does not appear to contain a corporate sustainability report. The promotion of these outmoded and unsustainable business models would be most unfortunate. The confluence of Cuba's '2030' development plans, the rapidly evolving and well-financed post-COP21 low carbon economy dynamic, and the US-Cuba normalization process presented the island with an ideal scenario in which to develop sustainably. The business case for a sustainable Cuba may now fall on deaf ears when it comes to Trump-promoted business prospects. Despite Cuba's highly publicized recent round of 'open for business' measures, the opening of American hotels and US airline concessions, the Cuba leaders remain deeply suspicious of the American government and its commercial interest in Cuba. The 'deals' have not materialized and the US business community is quickly souring on Cuba. Will they continue to press for further openings if there is no quick return on investment? If the business community gives up its pressure to end the embargo (because the Cuban themselves are driving them crazy with their inaction), the easiest thing for President Trump to do is to align with the Cuban-American lobby and follow the Republican Party platform as a demonstration of his willingness to follow along with traditional Republican stances. This is a low political-cost/high symbolic-value trade-off. President Obama's negotiating team and the Josefina Vidal-led Cuban negotiating team have done wonders to move the normalization agenda forward. Even if this process were to continue with the support of a new bi-partisan coalition, President Trump's bluntness and impatience, his sheer ignorance of the give-and-take of foreign policy-making and trade negotiations, and the touchiness of Cuban diplomats and negotiators does not augur well for a smooth normalization process. With President Trump at the helm, figuring out Rubik's Cuba just got a lot harder. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Без учета некоторых статей прибыль составила 91 цент на бумагу при средних прогнозах аналитиков на уровне 88 центов на бумагу. Выручка за рассматриваемый период увеличилась на 10,2% г/г до $3,94 млрд, хотя аналитики в среднем ожидали $3,89 млрд. Согласно ожиданиям компании, в текущем квартале прибыль на акцию окажется в диапазоне от 80 до 85 центов на акцию, тогда как средний прогноз аналитиков составляет 87 центов на акцию.

Trump Hotels Buck Industry Trend, Continue To Offer Guests Porn

As much of the U.S. hotel industry has moved away from offering adult films to guests, one notable chain has resisted the change. Most Trump hotels in the United States continue to make adult films available in their rooms as an on-demand amenity. Of the eight U.S.-based Trump hotels, six offer the service to clients, making the chain a holdout in an industry that has increasingly taken steps away from profiting from pornography. Considering some of Donald Trump’s outrageously sexist statements and actions, this may not come as a surprise. The real estate mogul and GOP presidential nominee has even made a cameo in a soft-core porn movie. But Trump Hotels’ continued porn offerings further illustrate the strange-bedfellows relationship Trump has forged with the religious elements of his party, boasting endorsements from conservative activist and Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr. and Focus on the Family founder James Dobson, among others.  When The Huffington Post called various U.S. Trump hotels to ask about amenities they offered, employees in Honolulu, Chicago, Las Vegas, two New York City locales and the Washington D.C. locale on Pennsylvania Avenue ― just a few blocks from the White House ― confirmed that on-demand adult films were available in guest rooms. On-demand adult film services were not available in two other Trump properties: the Albemarle Estate at Trump Winery in Virginia and the Trump National Doral Miami in Florida, both located in the South. The two most important parameters ... are our guests’ wishes, and whether our policy decisions are ethically sound. In the case of adult films, these two add up to a clear ‘no, thank you’. Petter Stordalen, Nordic Choice Hotels While three-quarters of U.S.-based Trump hotels continue to offer pornographic films to their guests, hotels elsewhere across the country have moved to sever their ties to the adult film industry. According to the nonpartisan nonprofit National Center on Sexual Exploitation, the following hotel companies have recently changed their policies regarding adult films, and will no longer offer hardcore porn to their guests: InterContinental Hotels Group (which includes brands such as Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Candlewood and more); Starwood Hotels (which includes St. Regis, Westin, Sheraton and more); Hyatt Hotels. Those organizations have joined Omni Hotels & Resorts, Drury Hotels, Hilton Worldwide and Marriott Hotels, which either no longer sell or have never sold pornography. Nordic Choice Hotels established a new set of ethical guidelines in 2013 and “quickly concluded that offering pay TV porn did not fit with our profile, nor with our guests’ modernizing preferences,” board chair Petter Stordalen wrote in an email to HuffPost. “The two most important parameters for Nordic Choice Hotels are our guests’ wishes, and whether our policy decisions are ethically sound,” Stordalen continued. “In the case of adult films, these two add up to a clear ‘no, thank you’. I believe a lot of hotel companies have figured that out already, and that more will follow in the future.” So while many of the most recognized brands in the hotel industry no longer offer adult films, that’s not the case for Trump Hotels ― named for a man who appeared on the cover of Playboy magazine, boasted of sexually assaulting women, falsely accused one of his female detractors of making a sex tape, bragged about sneaking backstage at the Miss Universe contest to “inspect” women’s bodies and dismissed abuse allegations from an adult film star by saying, “Oh, I’m sure she’s never been grabbed before.” Trump Hotels’ porn-friendly policy also stands in stark contrast to Trump’s vow this summer to crack down on pornography by signing a pledge written by the anti-pornography group Enough Is Enough. Trump hotel publicists did not immediately reply to a request for comment from HuffPost. type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related Coverage + articlesList=57597234e4b0ced23ca71dd1,57752ed5e4b0bd4b0b13b378,57e44c0be4b08d73b8307075 Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
