HSBC Made $120 Million In One Day As Turkish Lira Imploded

Countless Japanese amateur FX traders and Mrs. Watanabes were crushed last summer when the Turkish lira, one of Japan's favorite FX pairs, tumbled in an accelerating avalanche following a sharp deterioration in the Turkish economy and a major deterioration in US-Turkish relations over the ongoing arrest of Pastor Brunson which resulted in brief US tariffs. Yet while the losers were known, the big winners remained under the radar. Until now. As part of its (disappointing) earnings results...

Fly Intel: Top five weekend stock stories

Catch up on the weekend's top five stories with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. The U.S. Commerce Department sent a report to President Trump that could unleash steep tariffs on imported cars and auto parts, provoking a sharp backlash from the industry even before it is unveiled, the agency confirmed to Reuters' David Lawder and David Shepardson.

Economists Can’t Forecast Retail Sales, But You Have an Edge Because You Can

I had to chuckle when I saw how surprised the Wall Street media crowd was by Thursday's monthly retail sales report for December. The consensus of economists guesses for the month was for a 0.2% increase. Instead, they got smacked with a drop of 1.2% in the seasonally adjusted headline number. How could they have been so wrong? The funny thing is that if they had been paying attention all these years, they would know that, retail sales track the stock market with a slight lag...

Aradigm announces plans for reorganization under Chapter 11

Aradigm has filed for protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in the Alameda County Court District to facilitate the sale of its assets. On February 11, 2019, Aradigm determined that without confirmation of funding from its primary investor and partner, the company would not have enough funds to meet all of its future financial obligations. Therefore, the company had no alternative but to consider filing for bankruptcy protection in order to preserve its going concern value. As a result, Aradigm's...

Here Are The Hedge Funds That Got Crushed Buying PG&E In The Fourth Quarter

Are hedge funds, especially of the value-investing bent, merely trackers, hoping for stock price mean-reversion? That's one conclusion that emerges when looking at all the names who flooded into PG&E stock in the fourth quarter, when the now defaulted utility tumbled by 48% as its exposure to the deadly California fires emerged to be in the tens of billions, even as its escalating solvency and liquidity troubles became apparent to everyone. And yet, despite facing...

UMich Sentiment Rebounds In Feb But Inflation Forecast Hits Record Low

After plunging in January, UMich Sentiment was expected to rebound modestly in February (helped by the biggest rebound in stocks in a decade) but it dramatically beat expectations, jumping from 91.2 to 95.5 (93.7 exp). Current Conditions and Expectations rebounded (the latter notably more than the former) but none of the indices managed to regain the December levels...Despite a rebound in hope, inflation expectations (both short- and long-term) tumbled in Feb (the latter to a record low)...
