On the day Jerome Powell attempted to moderate market expectations for further easing, the world’s stockpile of negative-yielding bonds notched another remarkable record.
The Federal Reserve’s rate cut helped swell the total of all debt with sub-zero yields to more than $14 trillion for the first time. The market value of the Bloomberg Barclays Global Negative Yielding Debt Index closed at $14.1 trillion on Wednesday, after the biggest one-day jump in a month.
Policy makers in the world’s largest economy cut interest rates by a quarter point, in a move widely anticipated by markets. In a press conference, Chairman Powell left open the possibility of further moves but said he didn’t necessarily see Wednesday’s action as the start of an extended easing cycle.
All the same, the Fed’s surprise decision to stop shrinking its balance sheet early, alongside the cut, spurred a rally in 10-year Treasuries with the yield closing at the lowest in four weeks. They retraced th..
New Delhi: Tata Power's consolidated net profit declined by 86 per cent to Rs 230.80 crore in the April-June quarter of 2019-20 mainly due to exceptional gains in the same quarter of last year, according to a regulatory filing.
The company had posted a consolidated net profit of Rs 1,735.12 crore for the quarter ended on June 30, 2018, boosted exceptional gains of Rs 1,897.24 crore from the sale of non-core investment.
Tata Power said that the consolidated net profit before exceptional items stood at Rs 254 crore in the June quarter against Rs 252 crore in the year-ago period due to lower losses in Mundra on account of lower price of coal, new capacity addition in renewables, favourable regulatory order in Maithon and steady operational performance across all segments.
Total income during the April-June quarter rose to Rs 7,874.64 crore from Rs 7,404.97 crore in the year-ago quarter.
During April-June 2019, its expenses were at Rs 7,228.49 crore as compared to Rs 7,145.55 cror..
Bitcoin bull Michael Novogratz is seeing the same rush of enthusiasm toward Beyond Meat that came at the height of the crypto bubble.
The former Fortress hedge fund manager said while big ideas — like new alternatives to animal meat and money — capture people's attention, they can also become drastically over bought.
"Beyond Meat reminds me a little bit of crypto in 2017," Novogratz told CNBC's "Squawk Box " Thursday. "You get great bubbles on big ideas. This is a great bubble."
The plant-based meat maker has been on a tear since its IPO in May. Last week, shares hit an all-time high of $208.48, a 720% rally since the IPO. But the hot streak snapped this week after posting mixed second-quarter earnings.
Shares continued to stumble Thursday after the company announced a secondary stock offering at $160 — an 18.6% discount from Wednesday's closing price. Beyond Meat plans to sell an additional 3.25 million shares with 3 million coming from investors and 250,000 from the ..
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.Getty ImagesNew officials at the heart of the EU will likely keep America's big tech firms under close scrutiny, experts have told CNBC.
The European Commission — the EU's executive arm — has fined companies such as Google for disrespecting its competition rules, it's asked Ireland to collect unpaid taxes from Apple and is currently investigating Amazon. It has also proposed different laws that seek to limit online content and there's little evidence that anything will change under the EU's new leadership.
Dexter Thillien, a senior industry analyst at Fitch Solutions, told CNBC via telephone Wednesday that Europe is keen to continue to be seen as the global leading force in tech regulation. Thillien explained that Europe saw a loophole in global tech regulation and felt the need to act. "Europeans have all the negatives but none of the positives," he said, referring to the fact that Europe has not created any large tech firms but ha..
VIDEO3:2003:20BOE's Carney: UK financial conditions are likely to remain volatileBank of EnglandThe Bank of England (BOE) pushed back against calls to cut interest rates on Thursday, leaving borrowing costs unchanged amid an intensifying risk of a no-deal departure from the European Union.
With less than 100 days to go before the country is set to leave the bloc, the BOE's nine-member Monetary Policy Committee (MPC), led by Mark Carney, unanimously voted to hold interest rates at 0.75%.
The central bank also cut its growth forecasts for the U.K. economy, amid worries about Brexit and a slowing global economy.
The BOE, which assumes Britain will avoid a Brexit shock, said it now expects to see growth of 1.3% both this year and next, down from 1.5% and 1.6% respectively in its May forecast.
The decision comes at a time of growing uncertainty over the terms of Britain's departure from the EU. Newly elected Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who officially entered Downing Street ..
