Whole Foods is sliding after missing on earnings and slashing its guidance (WFM)

Business Insider, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

whole foods

Whole Foods is sliding after announcing quarterly earnings that fell short of Wall Street estimates in addition to slashing its full-year guidance. 

The upscale grocery chain earned $0.30 per share versus the Wall Street estimate of $0.39. On an adjusted basis, earnings were in-line at $0.39 per share. 

Shares of Whole Foods are down about 4% in after-hours trading on Wednesday. 

Comparable-store sales — at locations open for at least one year – fell 2.4%, greater than the expected decline of 1.7%.

The company says it sees full-year 2017 adjusted EPS of at least $1.33, which is below their previous estimate of $1.42 and short of the $1.44 that analysts were anticipating.

Wells Fargo is reportedly considering scrapping 2016 bonuses for its top executives including the CEO and CFO

Business Insider, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

Wells Fargo

Wells Fargo will not be giving out 2016 bonuses for top executives according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.

The Journal's Emily Glazer, citing people familiar with the matter, reported that the board of directors is considering witholding 2016 bonuses from current CEO Tim Sloan, CFO John Shrewsberry, and other top executives.

Wells was rocked during the second half of 2016 when the bank settled with regulators after employees opened accounts under customers names without their knowledge.

According to the settlement, employees of Wells Fargo opened as many as 2 million fraudulent accounts under customers names.

Withholding the bonuses was not due to the board placing blame on the executives for the scandal, according to the Journal, but rather holding high-level members accountable for the bank's performance.

The scandal led to a congressional investigation and the resignation of former CEO John Stumpf.

Stumpf was then replaced by Sloan, a 26-year veteran of the bank. The bank also reformed its sales incentive practices for employees.

More to come...

O'Reilly Automotive's CEO is not afraid of Amazon (ORLY)

Business Insider, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

auto workerO'Reilly Automotive CEO Gregory Henslee doesn't view online retailers like Amazon as a threat.

In the fourth-quarter 2016 earnings call on Wednesday morning, UBS Analyst Michael Lasser asked Henslee about the emerging online competition within the space, particularly on the DIY side.

"We've not seen much in our business that's led us to be very concerned about it," said Henslee. "These online retailers have been around for a long time and I realize that Amazon is the strongest and the best-run... and I'm a customer for household items and other things. But one of the things that — or some of the things that are a barrier to entry for these guys are that we're in a very technical business."

Henslee goes on to explain that when a customer has a problem with their car and they don't know really know what's wrong, whether its a battery issue, alternator, or starter motor, O'Reilly employees will go out and test it and help customers install what they need. 

"We'll get them lined up with a technician to help solve their problem if they can't," said Haslee in the earnings call. "Many times, their problems are what I call driveability problems, they're related to sensors, or emission system things that cause the check engine light to come on, or a variety of things. We have highly experienced trained professionals in our stores that help them solve these problems."

"I mean, it's just a highly technical business. And then on top of all that, learning and developing the science to know what inventory you need in different markets takes time and experience, and that's — the reason that our company, one of the reasons we've done so well is because we've been so good at that, plus there's almost 36,000 parts stores in the U.S. It's very convenient to get parts and there's a high immediacy of need when you have a car problem."

Haslee sees difficulties for online retailers to penetrate the same market, in light of the valuable services provided by O'Reilly's employees:

"When I think about the relationships that we have with our professional customers and the dependency that they have on us to provide them training and guidance and access to tools and the equipment to keep their tools running and their equipment running. And how quickly they need parts and how if they're not sure maybe in a model year change where a car might take one of two parts, we'll send them both and bring the other one back. We'll match up parts for them. Just, the list goes on and on and on of the things that we do, plus we're making a distribution center inventory available to them. In many markets, six, eight times a day, which is — I think that the online retailers, while they'll — as they have proven over the years — they'll continue to take a little bit of market share here and there, I don't see them nearly as one of our most prominent competitors."

Here are the fourth-quarter results from O'Reilly Automotive:

  • 18% increase in earnings to $2.59 per share in the fourth quarter of 2016 from $2.19 in the fourth-quarter in 2015. 
  • Quarterly revenues went up 8% to $2.10 billion from $1.95 billion a year ago.
  • Comparable store sales increased 4.8% in the reported quarter compared with a 7.7% rise in the prior-year quarter.
  • Gross profit rose 8% to $1.11 billion (53.1% of sales) from $1.03 billion (52.7% of sales) a year ago.
  • Earnings for full-year 2016 increased 17% to $10.73 per share from $9.17 in 2015
  • Revenues for 2016 improved 8% to $8.59 billion from $7.97 billion in 2015

The stock is up 4.36% at $273.61 a share on Wednesday afternoon.

Trump's obsession with Mexico makes him miss the bigger picture on Latin America

Business Insider, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

venezuela

Latin America is a big place — or, as Donald Trump might put it, muy grande.

While the new US president appears fixated on trade battles with Mexico and halting immigration from the southern border, deep economic and political crises in countries like Venezuela and Brazil threaten to spiral out of control.

Once referred to pejoratively as “America’s backyard,” Latin America has a long but tortured relationship with its large and wealthy northern neighbor.

But in recent years, the region has for the most part been remarkable for the consolidation of democratic institutions that were once threatened by military dictatorships, and economic policies that, on the whole, have moved many countries in the right direction.

There are of course plenty of exceptions, and these should keep the new US president up at night. Trump must look beyond the immediate Southern border to others parts of Latin America. For one thing, the US immigration problem stems in great part from America’s failed war on drugs which, having taken its toll on Mexico, has since moved downstream and engulfed much of Central America.

Further south, post-Hugo Chavez Venezuela has deteriorated into a dangerous state of political chaos, and Brazil, whose political system is teetering and where drug wars have escalated to the type brutal mass killings and prison battles once confined to Colombia and Mexico. 

Monica de Bolle, senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington and a former IMF economist, worries about the risks posed by Trump’s neglect of the broader region.

Brazil, Latin America’s largest economy, is reeling from a widespread corruption scandal that has implicated much of the legislature and indirectly led to the impeachment of ex-President Dilma Rousseff. Now there’s talk that her successor and former vice president, Michel Temer, could be next on the chopping block

As the power vacuum deepens, increasingly organized drug traffickers have filled the void.

"The international press has really slept at the wheel on this one

The international press has really slept at the wheel on this one

. They portrayed [an armed group] as a gang when the prison riots were happening, but it has long ceased to be a gang. They are a cartel," said de Bolle. 

"Currently, they operate out of Brazil, but have connections with drug lords all over Latin America. Given that the government has done so little to contain them — and now states have run out of cash, along with the federal government — I sincerely fear that we’re seeing something reminiscent of Colombia in the late 80s/early 90s. Really, really scary stuff. That is something that’s not on anyone’s radar, especially not Trump’s as regards Brazil.” 

Conditions in Venezuela are incomparably worse, by orders of magnitude. The country has become a large, dictatorial failed state in the middle of the region that has generated heartbreaking stories of personal struggle but little in the way of international action to address rising hunger and violence. 

"Lack of attention to Venezuela just escalates this story, since [the same armed militia] operating in Brazil is all over that particular failed state," said de Bolle.

dilma rousseffTrump’s lack of attention to Latin America’s other big players also leaves open room for China to assert even greater dominance over the region, as did the US withdrawal from the TransPacific Partnership (TPP) agreement between 12 Pacific Rim nations.

"The United States is creating a strategic opportunity for China to dramatically strengthen relations with Latin America," said Sean Miner, fellow and associate director of the Atlantic Council’s China — Latin America Initiative. "The US could be left out of the new trade architecture in Latin America, as countries look everywhere but North."

Indeed, one small silver lining in Trump’s narrow focus on Mexico is a nascent rapprochement between Latin American countries that once viewed themselves as rivals.

A new study shows that areas in Europe hit hardest by trade saw a rise in support for nationalist parties

Business Insider, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

marine le pen

Nationalism has come back in vogue across Western Europe, prompting analysts to investigate underlying, big-picture trends that might be correlated with this political phenomenon.

And one such trend folks have fixed on is globalization.

In a new working paper, Italo Colantone and Piero Stanig from Bocconi University looked into the relationship between the impact of globalization and electoral outcomes in fifteen European countries between 1988 and 2007. More specifically, they looked at the relationship between the economic shock due to the surge of imports from China and voter behavior.

They found that a stronger import shock from China at the district level was linked to an increase in support for nationalist parties, a general shift to the right in the electorate, and an increase in support for radical right parties.

To measure the effects of trade, the team built a region-specific indicator based on the idea that different regions' exposure to growth in Chinese exports depends on what industries are concentrated in each region. By looking at those regional industry concentrations and national-level trade data for the products of the various industries, the researchers were able to estimate the overall impact of Chinese trade on different regions.

In the paper, the team found that the shock from an increase of imports from China to Europe "had a heterogeneous impact across European regions, depending on their historical employment composition." Using data from 76 legislative elections across the fifteen countries, they found that areas with a stronger regional exposure to the trade shock saw a larger increase in support for nationalism and the radical right than regions with less trade exposure.

The countries examined by the team include Austria, Belgium, Findland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. All are EU members save Norway and Switzerland.

Leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) Nigel Farage speaks to media after a launch for an EU referendum poster in London, Britain June 16, 2016.

Europe is not the only part of the world where trade shocks have been correlated with political shifts.

Back in November, economists David Autor, David Dorn, Gordon Hanson, and Kaveh Majlesi found that areas in the US hit the hardest by trade shocks were more likely to shift away from centrist politicians. Notably, the move to more extreme political positions wasn't caused so much by incumbent politicians shifting their views away from the center, but rather the electorate voting in new representatives who espoused more left- or right-leaning ideas. 

Although the authors of the paper looked at elections between 2002 and 2010, trade was a huge issue in the 2016 US presidential election. We saw a similar pattern with the emergence of nontraditional candidates like Donald Trump and — to a much lesser degree, but still espousing a shift away from the center — Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders. Both pointed a finger at trade with China.

Even Hillary Clinton, more centrist than either Trump or Sanders, eventually abandoned support of the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal — after previously calling it the "gold standard" of trade agreements — ostensibly in an attempt to address voters' concerns.

Ultimately, we should note that a trade shock is, of course, not the sole variable affecting voters' decisions. The relationship of economics, race, social trends, institutions, and politics in both Europe and the United States is far too complex to be limited to two studies — not to mention the fact that sometimes these factors are interconnected. And even within economics, trade is not the whole story. Automation, for example, has also affected American jobs. In short, trade is just one part of a bigger picture.

But these studies do raise questions about not only how politicians will continue to respond during elections to voters' grievances amid a shifting socioeconomic landscape, but more importantly how they will respond when it comes to actually making policy. And regarding that, Colantone and Stanig offered their own analysis.

"The main message of this paper is that globalization might not be sustainable in the long run in the absence of appropriate redistribution policies aimed at compensating the so-called 'losers' of globalization: those segments of society that bear most of the adjustment costs of international trade," the authors wrote in their paper.

They continued (emphasis ours):

"The unequal sharing of the welfare gains brought about by globalization has resulted in widespread concerns and a general opposition to free trade. Such a sentiment is interpreted and promoted especially by nationalist and radical-right parties, whose policy proposals tend to bundle support for domestic free market policies with strong protectionist stances. This policy bundle has started to be referred to as 'economic nationalism' also in public discussion. As parties offering such a policy mix become increasingly successful, we might see the end — and possibly even a reversal — of globalization."

Here's when we'll know if Mexico's economy is 'coming off the rails'

Business Insider, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

bridge collapsed railway flood

President Donald Trump has made no secret that he thinks Mexico is taking advantage of the United States. 

Throughout his campaign and during the first few weeks of his presidency he has railed against our neighbor to the south — specifically over the issue of trade.

Trump called NAFTA the "worst trade deal in the history of the country" and blamed the free trade agreement with Canada and Mexico for job losses, declining wages, and companies shifting manufacturing to Mexico.

Additionally, Trump has threatened to impose a 20% border tax on any imports from Mexico to help pay for his proposed border wall. 

Investors are obviously nervous, something that's best reflected in the volatile peso. But while the Mexican economy has started to show some signs of cracking under the pressure, most notably with consumer confidence cratering to a record low in January as Mexico's stock market tanked following the election, the hard data still points to a relatively sound economy.

According to preliminary data, the Mexican economy posted growth of 2.2% year-over-year in the fourth quarter, roughly where it has been for the past two years. While that data is from before Trump took office, it does include the weeks leading up to the election and the weeks after Trump's victory — a time at which he was particularly outspoken about Mexico.

Additionally, Mexico's auto production rose 4.1% year on year in January. While that's down from the 8.8% clip experienced in December, it still represents solid growth in the face Trump's efforts to stop US automakers from importing Mexico-made cars and parts. 

Trump has negotiated deals to prevent Ford, GM, Toyota, and others from shifting production to Mexico. 

So while the data is sending mixed signals, Capital Economics says there a few things to pay attention to that will indicate whether or not the Mexican economy is "really coming off the rails." 

That list includes a few key indicators, of hard data, like 
industrial production, retail sales, and private consumption that will provide better clues as to the health of the economy.

As you can see from this data calendar provided by Capital Economics, we'll get a better picture of Mexico's economy starting in March:

Trump and Intel's CEO are touting a $7 billion plant that has been under construction since 2011 as a new jobs creator (INTC)

Business Insider, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich announced that the chipmaker will be investing $7 billion in a semiconductor plant in Arizona after meeting with President Donald Trump.

Krzanich said that the company will complete the construction of a factory in Chandler, Arizona that will create its new 7 nanometer semiconductors.

At the meeting in the Oval Office, Krzanich said that the company has "been working on this factory for several years" but decided to fully finish the project as a result of some of Trump's policies.

"It's really in support of the tax and regulatory policies that we see the administration pushing forward that really make it advantageous to do manufacturing in the US," said Krzanich in the Oval Office.

Intel began construction on the factory, known as Fab 42, in Chandler, Arizona in 2011 and had left the plant vacant since 2014. Back then, the Arizona Republic said the plant was supposed to create 1,000 jobs after a $5 billion investment from the company.

It is unclear if the $7 billion investment is on top of the previously announced $5 billion number and whether the added investment is for an expansion of the existing building or for equipment. An Intel spokesperson told Bloomberg that the investment will not increase Intel's planned capital expenditure budget for 2017.

President Barack Obama also visited the site while it was under construction in 2012, saying the Fab 42 was an example of an "America that attracts the next generation of good manufacturing jobs" according to the 2014 report.

A press release accompanying the announcement on Wednesday said that the plant will directly employ 3,000 workers in Arizona when it is completed in three to four years.

"Great thing for Arizona, unbelievable company and product," said Trump. "And we're very happy and I can tell you the people of Arizona are very happy. It's a lot of jobs."

Time Warner beats thanks to 'Fantastic Beasts' (TWX)

Business Insider, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

fantastic beasts

Time Warner Inc reported higher-than-expected fourth-quarter results, largely due to box office hits such as the "Harry Potter" spinoff "Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them."

The New York-based media company, which is set to be acquired by AT&T Inc in an $85.4 billion deal, reported an 11.5% rise in quarterly revenue and said the merger remained on track to close later this year.

Time Warner topped Wall Street's estimates as the company, which owns film studio Warner Bros as well as the CNN and HBO television channels, confronts the challenge of more viewers going online to watch their favorite shows and movies.

On its earnings call with analysts, Time Warner announced that its streaming service, HBO Now, which launched in 2015, has 2 million US subscribers.

Here are the numbers: 

  • Revenue rose to $7.89 billion from $7.08 billion. Analysts on average expected $7.72 billion, according to Thomson Reuters.
  • Revenue from Warner Bros, the company's biggest revenue generator, rose 17% to $3.87 billion.
  • Revenue from HBO, home to popular shows such as "Game of Thrones" and the new breakout series "Westworld," rose 5.6 percent to $1.49 billion.

"Fantastic Beasts" grossed more than $800 million globally as of February 5, according to tracking firm Box Office Mojo. 

Shares are up .35% at $96.56 a share on Wednesday afternoon.

Greece’s crisis flare-up couldn’t come at a worse time — for France

Business Insider, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

Markets are dreading the outside chance that right-wing anti-immigrant Marine Le Pen could score a surprise victory in France's upcoming presidential elections, particularly in the wake of Donald Trump’s huge electoral upset and the pro-Brexit vote in the UK.

So much so that investors have started pushing up French bond yields, which used to trade more like a safe-haven during the height of the eurozone crisis. That's why the latest outbreak of panic over Greece’s debt sustainability, sparked by a long-run assessment published by the International Monetary Fund, could not come at a worse time for champions of a moderate, integrated and liberal Europe. 

As French bond spreads widen versus their German counterparts, seen as the euro zone benchmark, they reinforce European Central Bank President Mario Draghi’s stated intention to keep interest rates at very low levels for the foreseeable future. They also reintroduce public concerns about the long-term viability of the eurozone. Le Pen has vowed to pull France out of the common currency, which would most likely lead to its collapse.

France spreads

"The rapid widening of French yield spreads over German and Dutch equivalents is so difficult to justify given we do not believe French election odds have materially changed in recent weeks," write analysts at BMI research.

"The euro and eurozone equities have been broadly stable in recent weeks, but rising intra-eurozone yield spreads are sending ominous signals with regards to investor sentiment amidst elevated political risk and a busy election schedule in 2017."

The IMF study on Greece’s debt levels appears intended to push the country’s European Union lenders to cut the government additional slack by offering an actual reduction of debt principle, which would make the country’s finances more manageable. This is a sound goal. However, if the document triggers the very crisis it is seeking to avert, one must wonder about its wisdom and timing.

To be clear, the eurozone debt crisis was more of a banking crisis than a sovereign bond crisis, even though it is often portrayed as the latter. It was excessive lending by banks in Northern Europe, including Germany and France, to poorer governments in the south that led to an unsustainable build-up that eventually came crashing down, not, for the most part, runaway government spending.

"Apart from Greece, the nations that ended up with bailouts were not those with the highest debt-to-GDP-ratios," concluded a memo signed by several highly-regarded economists in 2015.

Short sellers are getting steamrolled by Tesla (TSLA)

Business Insider, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

Short sellers are getting steamrolled by the rally in Tesla.

The company's shares have soared more than 40% since the company closed on its acquisition of SolarCity. Traders who bet against the stock have been saddled with a loss of 31%, or $2.3 billion when taking into account financing costs, according to S3 Partners.

Bets against Tesla surged since the beginning of November as investors like Greenlight Capital's David Einhorn have targeted the company for "years of under-promising and over-delivering." 

In the weeks following the January 3 announcement that Tesla missed its 2016 deliveries targetshort interest climbed to more than 35% of the float, or shares available to the public. But the stock kept rallying, and the shorts continued to pile in. As of Tuesday, short interest totaled $9.2 billion, its highest on record, S3 says.  

"Having weathered over $2.3 billion of losses in three months, it might take a large price move to squeeze out these shorts, but if they begin to cover their positions there would be several billion dollars of buy to covers hitting the tape providing quite a tailwind to Tesla’s stock price," S3 said. 

Tesla is scheduled to report its fourth-quarter results on February 22. Wall Street is currently expecting a loss of $0.75 per share on revenue of $2.09 billion.

REPORT: Hillary Clinton's son-in-law is shutting down his hedge fund

Business Insider, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

Screen Shot 2017 02 08 at 10.40.25 AMMarc Mezvinsky, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's son-in-law, has shut down his hedge fund, Bloomberg reports.

New York-based Eaglevale Partners, the hedge fund co-founded by Marc Mezvinsky, closed in December and is in the process of returning money to clients, according to Bloomberg.

Mezvinsky's foray into the hedge fund world has been plagued with troubles. In May 2016, Mezvinksy closed down Eaglevale Hellenic Opportunity, which was betting on a possible Greek comeback from the depths of the country's years-long financial crisis.

The Wall Street Journal reported in February that the Greece-focused fund lost 48% in 2015 because of the continuing economic issues in Greece as well as the difficult environment for hedge funds in general.

Eaglevale Partners was cofounded in 2011 by former Goldman Sachs traders Bennett Grau, Mark Mallon and Mezvinsky, who worked together on the bank’s global macro proprietary-trading desk. Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein was one of the firm's earliest investors.

LARRY FINK: The US is facing 2 major crises

Business Insider, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

Larry Fink

Larry Fink is worried about two impending crises in the US.

During an interview at Yahoo Finance's All Markets summit, Fink identified two long-term problems that are looming over the US economy.

One, according to Fink, is the deficiency of infrastructure — roads, bridges, and more — in the US.

"It's now getting late for preparing cities for new technologies," said Fink during an interview with Yahoo Finance editor-in-chief Andy Serwer.

Fink noted that much of the infrastructure spending is currently going towards repairing existing roads and bridges, and not towards the large-scale investments needed for the US to compete in the future. 

The infrastructure issue was one of the main concerns Fink brought up during the meeting between business leaders and President Donald Trump on Friday, he said. Fink also reiterated his commitment to working with Trump to help on infrastructure despite, as Serwer noted, being a Democrat.

The second, said Fink, is the pending retirement crisis facing Americans.

The BlackRock CEO said that American investors have "too much in cash" and low interest rates are not allowing savers to generate enough capital to retire.

Additionally, the public pensions that once helped people retire are facing their own issues since the state and local governments that once funded them are facing funding short falls while also having to deal with deficient infrastructure.

Fink has mentioned the retirement crisis before in his annual letter to the CEOs of every S&P 500 company in January.

"If we are going to solve the retirement crisis – and help workers adjust to a globalized world – businesses need to hold themselves to a high standard and act with the conviction that retirement security is a matter of shared economic security," said Fink in the letter.

During the discussion, Fink also noted that he sees "dark shadows" in the market as governments pull back from global trade and that the looming threat to jobs from automation could lead to instability in the future.

All of this has led to a "bi-polar world" in which stocks could face "setbacks" and the US Treasury 10-year yield could drop under 2% or jump over 4%, depending on the policies from President Donald Trump, Fink said.

ROUBINI: The Trump rally is about to smack into a wall of worry

Business Insider, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

roubini

The record-setting stock market rally that followed Donald Trump’s election victory will soon peter out as investors realize the economic negatives in his political agenda vastly outweigh the positives, according to crisis-famed economist Nouriel Roubini.

“It is little wonder that corporations and investors have been happy," the New York University Stern School of Business professor and Chairman of Roubini Macro Associates wrote in an opinion piece for Project Syndicate. “ This traditional Republican embrace of trickle-down supply-side economics will mostly favor corporations and wealthy individuals, while doing almost nothing to create jobs or raise blue-collar workers’ incomes.”

He cites a study from the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center showing nearly half of Trump’s proposed tax cuts would be directed at the top 1% highest-income Americans.

“Yet the corporate sector’s animal spirits may soon give way to primal fear: the market rally is already running out of steam, and Trump’s honeymoon with investors might be coming to an end,” Roubini concludes.

Destroying jobs

His reasoning is as follows. As the markets became hyped up about the possibility of a fiscal stimulus that is still largely undefined, they have pushed up bond yields and mortgage rates, making it more costly for firms and consumers to borrow. In addition, the dollar strength that accompanied Trump’s victory is deeply harmful to the very manufacturing export sectors the Republican president has promised to help.

“The US dollar’s appreciation since the election could destroy almost 400,000 manufacturing jobs over time,” Roubini argues.

TrumpRallyBecause he also foresees high spending with low economic returns under Trump's presidency, the cycle of higher rates and a stronger dollar could be self-reinforcing. 

“Trump’s fiscal-stimulus package might end up being much larger than the market’s current pricing suggests,” he says, seemingly confident that Republican fiscal conservatives in Congress will naturally bow to their president. “If this happens again under Trump, fiscal deficits will push up interest rates and the dollar even further, and hurt the economy in the long term.”

A weakening economy could force Trump to double-down on the heavy-handed protectionism that has already become a hallmark of his administration, triggering a prolonged and damaging trade war. 

The US has already spooked its trading partners by unilaterally pulling out of a long-negotiated and hard-fought Transpacific Partnership agreement, or TPP. If pushed further, “America’s trading partners will have little choice but to respond to US import restrictions by imposing their own tariffs on US exports,” Roubini says. “The ensuing tit-for-tat will hinder global economic growth, and damage economies and markets everywhere.”

Ultimately, Roubini’s stock market advice appears to come down to two words: caveat emptor.

The rupee is climbing after India's central bank unexpectedly holds rates

Business Insider, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

indian rupeeThe Indian rupee is up on Wednesday after the Reserve Bank of India unexpectedly held rates.

The currency is up by 0.4% at 67.110 per dollar as of 8:24 a.m. ET.

India's central bank held its benchmark interest rate at 6.25%, signaling the end of a loosening cycle. 

"The decision of the MPC is consistent with a neutral stance of monetary policy in consonance with the objective of achieving consumer price index or CPI inflation at 5 per cent by Q4 of 2016-17 and the medium-term target of 4 per cent within a band of +/- 2%, while supporting growth," the RBI said in its statement.

"Looking ahead, with inflation set to accelerate, we continue to think that rate hikes will come onto the agenda much sooner than is generally anticipated," argued Shilan Shah, India economist at Capital Economics, in a note to clients.

As for the rest of the world, here's the scoreboard as of 8:24 a.m. ET:

  • The US dollar index is up by 0.2% at 100.43 ahead of a quiet data day. The Department of Energy's inventories will be released at 10:30 a.m. ET.
  • The euro is down by 0.1% at 1.0667 against the dollar. Separately, the latest report from the International Monetary Fund said that Greece's debt will become "explosive" within 13 years. The IMF said that the debt-ridden country will struggle when it has to refinance its loans at market rates in 2030.
  • The Russian ruble is up by 0.2% at 59.2390 per dollar, while Brent crude oil, the international benchmark, is down by 0.3% at $54.95 per barrel.
  • The Mexican peso is up by 0.4% at 20.5382 per dollar.

Trump reportedly called his national security advisor at 3 a.m. to ask if the US wants a strong or weak dollar

Business Insider, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

phone call Donald Trump

President Donald Trump called National Security Advisor Mike Flynn at 3 a.m. to ask about the economic impact of a strong US dollar, according to a report from the Huffington Post.

HuffPo's SV Date and Christina Wilke, citing sources with knowledge of the conversation, reported that Trump asked Flynn if the strong dollar was good or bad for the US economy during the early morning phone call. According to the sources, Flynn said he was not sure and that Trump should ask an economist instead.

The Huffington Post said neither Flynn's office nor the White House responded to their request for confirmation of the call. The White House did not immediately return a request for comment from Business Insider.

Trump and his team have generally said that the stronger dollar, which strengthened significantly against other major currencies after the election but has since given back some of its gains, has been a negative for the US economy.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Trump said that the strong dollar is "killing us."

"Our companies can’t compete with [Chinese companies] now because our currency is too strong. And it’s killing us," Trump told the Journal.

Additionally, Trump's Treasury secretary pick, Steven Mnuchin, said in written responses that while the stronger dollar is generally good for the US because it represents "faith that investors have in doing business in America," but that the current strength of the dollar could have "negative short-term implications on the economy."

Recently, Trump's team has attacked China and Germany for what they believe are improper tactics to devalue their currencies against the dollar.

Generally, a strong dollar is good for American consumers because it makes it cheaper for people to buy foreign made products, it can also hurt US-based producers that export their goods since those goods become more expensive in other countries.

The US dollar index is little changed on Wednesday, higher by 0.3% at 100.50.

Bitcoin dropped sharply and suddenly on more news out of China

Business Insider, 1/1/0001 12:00 AM PST

Bitcoin tumbled more than 4% in a matter of 15 minutes after it was reported that the People's Bank of China was meeting with several local bitcoin exchanges on Wednesday to discuss a number of concerns, including money laundering, Bloomberg reports

Bitcoin has had a wild start to 2017 after gaining 120% in 2016 to become the top performing currency for the second year in a row. The cryptocurrency raced to a gain of 20% in the opening days of the year as speculators, mainly from China, poured in. 

However, bitcoin crashed 35% on fears that China would crack down on trading, bottoming near $750 a coin. Then, the cryptocurrency managed to grind higher despite news that China's three largest exchanges said they would implement a flat fee of 0.2% on all transactions. 

Currently, bitcoin trades down 1.5% at $1036 a coin. It's up almost 9% for 2017.
