    LG Elec reports highest first-quarter profit since 2009 as TV earnings jump

    South Korea's LG Electronics Inc reported its highest first-quarter operating profit since 2009, as record profits from its TV business more than made up for another loss for the mobile division.

    Trump's next $100 billion tariff dilemma - hit Wal-Mart or Apple Store?

    U.S. consumers may be about to directly feel the effects of the trade fight started by U.S. President Trump with China and other countries this year when a new list of Chinese imports to be taxed is announced in coming days. After imposing import tariffs on solar panels and washing machines in January, Trump moved to levy steel and aluminium in March along with about $50 billion in other goods. After China responded with a list of U.S. goods that would be subject to tariffs, Trump raised the stakes on April 4 by directing the U.S. Trade Representative to consider $100 billion in additional levies.

    U.S. ban on sales to China's ZTE opens fresh front as tensions escalate

    LONDON/NEW YORK/HONG KONG (Reuters) - The United States has banned American firms from selling parts and software to China's ZTE Corp for seven years, potentially devastating for the telecoms equipment maker and exacerbating tensions between the world's two largest economies. The U.S. Commerce Department imposed the ban following ZTE's violation of an agreement on punishing employees that was reached after it was caught illegally shipping U.S. goods to Iran. China responded swiftly, warning it is prepared to take action to protect the interests of Chinese firms and saying it hopes the United States can deal with the issue in accordance with the law.

    U.S. strike on China's ZTE another blow for Qualcomm

    SHANGHAI/BEIJING (Reuters) - A move by the United States to ban American firms selling components to the Chinese telecom equipment maker ZTE Corp will also hit a target closer to home: Qualcomm Inc, a U.S. company that is a major supplier of chips for ZTE's phones. The U.S. Department of Commerce slapped a seven-year ban on sales to ZTE on Monday for breaking terms of an agreement reached last year after it was caught illegally shipping goods to Iran. Caught in the crossfire is Qualcomm, whose products account for the lion's share of chips inside ZTE smartphones.

    LG Electronics tips highest first-quarter profit since 2009

    South Korea's LG Electronics Inc said it expects first-quarter operating profit to rise 20 percent from a year ago to its highest in 9 years, beating market expectations.

    U.S. washer tariffs put Samsung, LG supply chains through the wringer

    When South Korea's Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics last year announced plans to build home appliance factories in the United States, they hoped to sidestep any fallout from President Donald Trump's "America First" manufacturing and jobs mantra. Last week's decision by the U.S. government to impose tariffs of up to 50 percent on imports of washing machines and key components showed that wasn't to be. The inclusion of hefty tariffs on components in particular had moved the goal posts in a long-running trade dispute, upending supply chains and threatening investment across other industries, officials from the companies and the South Korean government said.
