    Trump just sent the wrong message on a brutal day in the stock markets

    On a brutal day in the stock markets the last thing investors want to see is another attack on the Federal Reserve by President Donald Trump. Trump reportedly told a group of reporters on Tuesday that he would like to see lower interest rates from the Federal Reserve. The president added that the biggest problem right now isn’t the trade war with China (among other geopolitical issues), but rather the Jerome Powell led Federal Reserve.

    Continental Aktiengesellschaft (FRA:CON): Are Analysts’ Forecast Signalling Trouble Ahead?

    Overall, analyst forecasts seem pessimistic, with earnings expected to decline by -2.1% in the upcoming year relative to the past 5-year average growth rate of 8.4%. With trailing-twelve-month net income at current levels of €3.0b, the consensus growth rate suggests that earnings will decline to €2.9b by 2019. To get an idea of the overall earnings growth trend for CON, I’ve plotted out each year’s earnings expectations and inserted a line of best fit to determine an annual rate of growth from the slope of this line.

    Xi’s two-day trip marks the first state visit to the Philippines by a Chinese president in 13 years. The visit reflects warmer ties that began when Duterte took office and pivoted toward China and away from the U.S., a longstanding defense ally. Among the 29 deals signed by the Philippines and China was a framework agreement that sets the stage for their joint oil and gas exploration in the South China Sea -- an issue that roiled ties between Beijing and Duterte’s predecessor -- according to televised proceedings of the visit.
