  • The Dow Jones Industrial Average is gaining this morning, buoyed by earnings reports from big banks JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo. Good news from the retail sector and a U.S. budget surplus for the month of December worked their magic as well.

    Bloomberg reported that December's federal budget surplus of $53.2 billion was a great improvement over the $1.19 billion deficit of one year ago, as increased payroll taxes, big payments from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and a brightening economy helped push the excess revenue numbers higher than the $44 billion analysts expected.

    In the retail arena, sales beat predictions as well, increasing 0.2% in December from the previous month. The U.S. Census Bureau noted that both nonstore retailers and motor vehicle sales rose 2.1% from the year-ago period. The National Retail Federation chimed in, saying that holiday sales were up 3.8% for November and December, though the prior consensus was a bit higher at 3.9%.

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that December U.S. import prices showed no change from the previous month, after a decline of 0.9% in November.

    Big banks kick off earnings season Both JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo reported earnings this morning, with the former delivering an earnings beat of $0.16 per share in the fourth quarter, despite the big bank's various legal settlements. The $1.40 per-share adjusted earnings topped the year-ago figure of $1.35 per share.

    Though net income for all of 2013 came in at $17.9 bill...

  • How Important is the Tokyo Gubernatorial Election?

    Communication, Communication Design


    Andrew DeWit

    Metropolitan Tokyo, the world’s largest city-region and site of the 2020 Olympics, lost its Governor (Inose Naoki) to a YEN 50 million political-donation scandal on December 19.1 Gubernatorial elections are set for February 9, with the official campaign period set to begin on January 23. There are at present three main candidates, one on the left (Utsunomiya Kenji), one on the far right (Tamogami Toshio) and one roughly in the centre (Masuzoe Yoichi).2 They may soon be joined by a powerful, potentially winning challenger stressing green power.

    This election matters a great deal for Japan, as well as for the world. Even without the precarious backdrop of Abenomics and the mounting China-Japan conflict over the Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands and Prime Minister Abe Shinzo’s provocative visits to Yasukuni Shrine,3 the election would be worth paying attention to. Tokyo Metro boasts a total population of 37 million and a city-region GDP of about USD 1.5 trillion, nudging out second-place New York City.4 It also has 51 of the Fortune Global 500 companies, the largest number in the world, according to CNN Money’s 2011 ranking.5 Tokyo also places at least 3rd or 4th on the various comprehensive and authoritative assessments of city-region size, influence, innovative capacity and other indices.6 In a world challenged by climate change, resource crises, inequality, and other profound problems, it matters a great deal what Tokyo does to build resilience.

    After all, green po...

    Toyota Motor Corp. (7203), Japan’s biggest carmaker, expects the nation’s economic recovery boosted by the buildup to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will help domestic vehicle demand weather a planned sales tax increase in April.

    The business environment should be “sunny after cloudy,” Akio Toyoda, president of Asia’s biggest carmaker, said yesterday in Tokyo. “Along with the three arrows, there is now a fourth arrow, which is the Tokyo Olympics. There will be some impact from the sales tax increase, but it should be limited, and at most, last about three months.”

    Toyoda’s outlook is shared by executives at other Japanese automakers who project the economic recovery, led by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s efforts to end deflation, will continue through this year. In Japan, the levy will be raised to 8 percent from the current 5 percent, and is set to be increased to 10 percent in 2015.

    “What’s important is to put the economy on a virtuous path,” Abe said at a gathering of Japan’s biggest business lobbies yesterday. Japan will push through deregulation to make the nation the easiest place to do business in the world, he said.

    Last month, Abe, 59, urged companies to increase wages faster than gains in the cost of living to break the legacy of 15 years of deflation, and pledged to forge ahead with structural reforms designed to open business opportunities in industries from health care to agriculture. The Abe administration’s reflation efforts, u...

    Chase Franklin International Tokyo News

    Tokyo shares opened higher Monday, tracking a Wall Street rally on Friday driven by strong US jobs data.

    The benchmark Nikkei 225 index rose 1.37 percent, or 193.42 points, to 14,280.22 shortly after the opening bell.

    The market also won support from the weaker yen as the dollar edged up in currency markets to 99.16 yen, from 99.04 yen in New York Friday.

    Tokyo's rise came after the Dow Jones Industrial Average ended at a fresh record of 15,761.78, up 1.08 percent, fuelled by stronger-than-expected jobs data.

    The world's biggest economy added 204,000 jobs in October, double what analysts forecast.

    The broad-based S&P 500 advanced 1.34 percent, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite added 1.60 percent.

    The figures raised the likelihood that the Federal Reserve would wind down its stimulus drive sooner than later. The central bank has said it would start reeling back on its bond-buying -- credited with propping up global equity markets -- once the economy shows firms signs of recovery.

    "Equity sentiment remains generally strong globally -- enough so to resist the fear of Fed tapering for now," said SMBC Nikko Securities general manager of equities Hiroichi Nishi.

    "Hopes for more robust economic growth in the world's largest economy should support confidence in a broad sense, while the weaker-yen factor in particular should buoy Japan shares for today," he told Dow Jones Newswires.

    Meanwhile, the Japanese go...

    [at MarketWatch] – J.P. Morgan, whose board is under pressure following the 2012 London Whale trading loss, adds a new board member with financial chops: the former CEO of GE Capital. JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM), with a current value of $220.49B, began trading this morning at $58.29.

    Today’s price range has been between $58.21 and $58.95 per share with its 52-week range being $44.44 to $58.95.

    J.P. Morgan (JPM) shares are currently priced at 13.20x this year’s forecasted earnings, which makes them relatively expensive compared to the industry’s 10.99x earnings multiple for the same period.

    And for income investors, the company pays shareholders $1.52 per share annually in dividends, yielding 2.60%.

    Consensus earnings for the current quarter by the 27 sell-side analysts covering the stock is an estimate of $1.32 per share, which would be $0.07 worse than the year-ago quarter and a $0.01 sequential decrease. What we find to be interesting is that the full-year EPS estimate of $4.41 is a $0.79 worse when compared to the previous year’s annual results.

    The quarterly earnings estimate is based on a consensus revenue forecast of the current quarter of $23.79 Billion. If realized, that would be a 2.42% decrease over the year-ago quarter.

    Recently, Standpoint Research downgraded JPM from Buy to Hold (Jul 24, 2013). Previously, Standpoint Research upgraded JPM from Hold to Buy.

    Scandal-hit JPMorgan Chase reveals it paid average HK$25.7m to more than 100 staff in London in 2012, as EU brings in rules limiting bonuses

    The biggest US bank, JPMorgan Chase, paid more than 100 of its London staff an average of £2 million (HK$25.7 million) in 2012.

    The disclosure came as fresh evidence emerged of the massive deals being paid in the City of London financial district despite an outcry over banking "fat cats" after the 2008 credit crisis.

    Goldman Sachs has already said its high-fliers received an average of £2.7 million in 2012 - up by half on the year before - fuelling fresh anger about bankers' bonuses.

    The banks are required to provide the information about their operations in the UK to comply with an EU rule introduced after the 2008 crisis. Banks must give details of the pay of "code staff", those deemed to be taking and managing risk.

    The details of the pay awards come as new rules from Brussels come into force to restrict top bankers' bonuses to one times their salary, or twice with the approval of shareholders.

    Sharon Bowles, of the European parliament's economic and monetary affairs committee, said the move was intended to change the culture of banking.

    "The bankers' bonus cap is part of building a much-needed culture change, putting an end to the sort of short-termism and excessive risk-taking that led to the financial crisis," she said.

    Royal Bank of Scotland also gave its new chief executive, Ross ...

    Buying real estate in Franklin TN will be the largest purchase you will ever make. You want to make sure you're protected during this transaction. The best way to do that is to hire a Buyer's Agent.

    What is a Buyer's Agent? In the late '90's real estate laws changed to protect buyers from the common-law practice of caveat emptor ("let the buyer beware"). Prior to this change, all real estate agents worked for the seller, even if, they were using an agent other than the listing agent. While sellers benefited from this arrangement, buyers began to question whether their financial interests were being protected. Buyers demanded accurate, factual information, as well as, objective advice. Their demands resulted in a change to agency law and the Buyer's Agent was born.

    Can I Call the Listing Agent? While Buyer Agency was created to protect the fiduciary interests of home buyers, many still contact the Listing Agent when purchasing a home. Primarily, because buyers think they will be able to negotiate a better price for the home if they use the Listing Agent. Actually, that is rarely the case.

    The Listing Agent has been hired by the seller to represent the seller's fiduciary interests. The Listing Agent's commission is negotiated at the time the Listing Agreement is signed. It is common practice for the Listing Agent to split that negotiated commission with the Buyer's Agent. However, if the Listing Agent brings the buyer, then he rece...
