    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Visits Washington Amid Scrutiny

    (Bloomberg) -- Facebook Inc. Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg is visiting Washington as the company confronts growing scrutiny over its privacy and marketplace practices.Zuckerberg will “meet with policy makers and talk about future internet regulation,” Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said in a statement.Senator Mark Warner, a Virginia Democrat and the ranking member of the Intelligence Committee, and other senators had dinner with Zuckerberg in Washington, Rachel Cohen, a Warner spokeswoman, said in a statement released Wednesday night.“The participants had a discussion touching on multiple issues, including the role and responsibility of social media platforms in protecting our democracy, and what steps Congress should take to defend our elections, protect consumer data, and encourage competition in the social media space,” Cohen said.Her statement did not identify the other senators, but said that Warner had helped organize the dinner “at Facebook’s request.”Zuckerberg is scheduled to meet with Senator Maria Cantwell of Washington State, according to a person familiar with the plans. Cantwell is the top Democrat on the Senate Commerce Committee, which is weighing privacy legislation.Zuckerberg will also meet with House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff of California, said another person familiar with the matter, who on Wednesday night declined to say exactly when the meeting would take place or provide additional information.Senator Jerry Moran, a Kansas Republican, is also working on scheduling a get-together with Zuckerberg, a senior Senate aide said.Zuckerberg is not scheduled to meet with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, according to a person familiar with the matter. Democrats castigated the company earlier this year after it failed to remove a doctored video of Pelosi. She has snubbed at least two meetings with him, Bloomberg has reported.Zuckerberg’s Washington visit comes as Facebook is battling criticism from lawmakers over its handling of users’ personal information, the proliferation of violent content and election interference by foreign operatives. The company is also facing antitrust investigations of its business practices from federal, congressional and state authorities.On Wednesday, lawmakers from the Senate Commerce Committee grilled executives from Facebook, Twitter Inc. and Alphabet Inc.’s Google over the spread of extremism and violence on digital platforms.Separately, the Federal Trade Commission has opened an antitrust probe of the company, and New York is leading a coalition of states in a wide-ranging investigation of the social media giant. In July, Facebook agreed to pay $5 billion to settle FTC allegations it violated users’ privacy.The House Judiciary antitrust subcommittee is also investigating competition issues in the technology industry. Last week, the panel sent a letter to Facebook seeking information about its acquisitions as well as communications from Zuckerberg, Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, former general counsel Colin Stretch and policy chief Kevin Martin.The company is trying to win over lawmakers threatening to stymie its launch of a new digital currency called Libra that its executives say can lower costs and expand access to the banking system in developing countries. The project faced bipartisan scorn during congressional hearings in July, even leading to legislative proposals that would kill it.(Updates with Warner dinner, starting in third paragraph.)\--With assistance from Billy House, Joe Light and Ben Brody.To contact the reporters on this story: Naomi Nix in Washington at nnix1@bloomberg.net;Rebecca Kern in Arlington at rkern21@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Sara Forden at sforden@bloomberg.net, John HarneyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    This Less-Known Singapore Property Play Pays 51%

    (Bloomberg Opinion) -- Singapore is a major Asian refining hub, though it doesn’t have a drop of crude petroleum. Now, the tiny country is punching above its weight in data. The upshot for investors: An asset class that pays 51% in a world where earning even zero is increasingly a luxury.There’s a limit to how many bits and bytes even a busy financial center of 5.6 million people can produce. Yet, measured by power supply, Singapore is now the world’s largest repository for storing and processing data. Facebook Inc. alone is setting up an 11-story facility, its first such custom-built center in Asia. Data-center real-estate investment trusts, or landlords who take money from public shareholders to own and manage server farms for rent-paying tech clients, are now a globally popular investment.  Singapore has unique attractions. Some are technical, such as low-latency connectivity. Another is that its investors are wealthy and old. Assured returns today excite them more than uncertain growth tomorrow. If global tech is a gold rush, Singaporeans are happy to pour money into the picks and shovels.Consider two current deals. Keppel DC REIT, which is seeking a combined S$478.2 million ($347.8 milion) from a private sale of shares and a preferential issue, saw the placement fully covered within the first hour of bookbuilding at the top of the price range. Shares have risen 44% over the past year. Including dividends, the returns have been 51%. Keppel DC will use the newly raised funds to expand its portfolio to S$2.58 billion, spread across 17 data centers globally.A world awash in cash helps boost the attractiveness of REIT dividends for small savers who would otherwise have to lunge for risk to earn decent yields. Not surprisingly, Mapletree Industrial Trust increased the size of its private placement to S$400 million after it was covered 6.3 times. The Singapore REIT, which wants to acquire data centers in North America, has handed 30% returns to investors over the past year. Will the good times last? Singapore has its drawbacks. The island became the “Houston of Asia” because it had a deep-water seaport and a large rig-building industry.The oil of the 21st century is a different industry. Data travels along copper wires and gets stored in micro-thin wafers of metal compounds, which have a tendency to heat up. The ideal storage center would be in a place where the electricity consumed in keeping servers cool isn’t as high as in tropical Singapore. Every watt of power that goes into computing as much as 0.78 watts has to be set aside to beat the year-round heat and humidity.Neither does it help that real estate is scarce. Even with land reclaimed from the sea, Singapore remains smaller than Rhode Island.Still, Singapore’s long-term advantage comes from being tiny, especially if Hong Kong founders as a rival.Sprawling data centers in China’s Inner Mongolia, as well as India or Indonesia, will primarily serve domestic digital content and commerce. They’ll also be fraught with politics. Populous countries will insist on being able to trace their citizens’ online behavior in the name of national security. Localization is one price global tech firms will have to pay to access these sizable markets. With New Delhi weighing a law that would make local storage mandatory, mining tycoon Gautam Adani wants to invest $10 billion in server farms in just one state. He’s waiting to sign up the likes of Amazon.com Inc. and Google. Alphabet Inc.’s Google, which has no data centers in China, has been in talks with Tencent Holdings Ltd. and several other Chinese firms to bring in its cloud services. However, in China’s case, an additional complication is the trade war. It’s not clear if Alphabet’s plans to offer Google Drive and Google Docs on the mainland will proceed apace amid increasing scrutiny by a hawkish establishment in Washington.Singapore, run by the same political party since 1959, offers predictable rule of law and infrastructure to give tech companies a comfort level for storing their most valuable resource. On land costs alone, neighboring Malaysia would be cheaper. But when deciding to set up a data center, investors assign a far bigger weight to future risks. And that’s where small, stable Singapore earns its big payoff.To contact the author of this story: Andy Mukherjee at amukherjee@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Patrick McDowell at pmcdowell10@bloomberg.netThis column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Andy Mukherjee is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering industrial companies and financial services.

    Stock Market Today: Federal Reserve Cuts Rates; Roku Tumbles

    After a couple of quiet days for equity investors, we finally got some action in the stock market today. The move comes after the Federal Reserve announced a 25 basis point reduction in the Fed Funds rates.Just the day before, we had noted that the likelihood went from a sure-fire rate cut a few weeks ago to a coin toss. Well, the Fed delivered with lower rates and Fed Chair Jerome Powell said the Fed will be accommodating in the future.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThe SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSEARCA:SPY) climbed 0.1%, the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (NYSEARCA:DIA) rallied 0.2% and the Invesco QQQ Trust (NASDAQ:QQQ) slipped 0.04%. Fed CutsWhile the Fed statement says it will be accommodating, the group does not seem interested in a spree of rate cuts. That's according to the voting members and where they stand in regards to cutting rates both this month and throughout the rest of the year.That's not to say they will not cut rates -- the Fed overall sees at least one more rate cut this year -- but the group's stance caused some dovish investors to recoil initially. * 7 CBD Stocks to Buy That Are Still Worth Your Investment Dollars Have no fear, though. While Powell said he doesn't anticipate negative interest rates, such as in the European Union, he also said the Fed may have to raise its balance sheet sooner than expected. Further, the Fed will only stop taking accommodating action once it is warranted.If anything, it was a reassuring meeting where equity investors got the rate cut they wanted and heard the Fed has their back. Powell called it an "insurance" move, and that's exactly what it was. Roku WreckedDespite the accommodating stance of the Fed, Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) was smashed on the day. Shares had already declined notably from its highs near $176, but they were holding up pretty well between $140 and $150 as the 20-day moving average was buoying the stock.That is, until today.Despite Guggenheim analysts maintaining their "buy" rating and moving their price target from $119 to $170, the stock plunged more than 14% at one point. The stock came within this close of hitting its 50-day moving average on the decline.From a trading perspective, it's got some investors wondering if ROKU will test and hold this mark, or if it will knife right through it like so many other red-hot tech stocks did earlier this month.In any regard, the decline comes as both Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) announce over-the-top products and platforms. Increasing competition, especially from these juggernauts, dealt a blow to Roku today. Let's see where it ends up finding support. Movers in the Stock Market TodayAdobe Systems (NASDAQ:ADBE) initially took a tumble after reporting earnings. The company beat on earnings and revenue expectations, but provided lower-than-expected guidance for next quarter. As such, shares sank 1.8% on the day.(Here's how to trade Adobe stock now, by the way).Shares of FedEx (NYSE:FDX) were creamed on Wednesday and deservedly so. Revenue was flat year-over-year and in line with expectations, while earnings missed analysts' expectations. Worse, the company cut its full-year revenue and earnings outlook, with the midpoint of the latter coming in roughly 16% below consensus estimates. Shares fell almost 13% and hover just above its 52-week lows. The result is also ushering in a slew of Wall Street downgrades.Chewy (NYSE:CHWY) fell 6.2% after the company reported earnings. Revenue grew 43% year-over-year and topped expectations, while earnings missed estimates. However, margins expanded and EBITDA topped estimates. Let's see how this recent IPO does in the coming days and weeks.General Mills (NYSE:GIS) slipped 0.9% after beating earnings and missing on revenue expectations. Management reaffirmed its full-year outlook and while the quarter wasn't great, it wasn't terrible either. With that 3.6% yield and the Fed cutting interest rates again, it may be enough to keep investors going to GIS.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.

    4 Top Stock Trades for Thursday: ROKU, ADBE, BYND

    It has been a quiet week, but stocks were on the move Wednesday after the Fed announced it would cut interest rates by 25 basis points. Let's look at a few top stock trades going forward. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 1: RokuRoku (NASDAQ:ROKU) was by far the top focus on Wednesday, with shares falling more than 14% at one point. The fall comes despite the stock consolidating at its 20-day moving average and receiving a nice price target increase on the day. However, both Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) announced over-the-top streaming products for its customers.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsIt seems like investors were just looking for an excuse to sell Roku. After all though, shares ran from ~$100 pre-earnings to more than $175 a month later. As if a 75% rally in one month weren't absurd enough, shares were up almost four-fold from the December lows before that rally. * 7 CBD Stocks to Buy That Are Still Worth Your Investment Dollars So what now?Shares puked right down into the 50-day moving average. Is it still enough to unwind that overbought condition? We won't know until ROKU puts in a few more sessions. Right now, it certainly looks like more losses could be on the way.Perhaps not in the next day or two, but looking forward to the intermediate term. That said, we don't have a crystal ball and we need to keep watch day by day.At $120, Roku stock would be back to its gap-up post-earnings open and at the 38.2% retracement. Should we get a Q4 swoon where the market is hit hard, one could see a scenario where Roku is back down into the $100 to $110 level.A reversal could change the tune for Roku, with bulls back in control if shares reclaim the 23.6% and the 20-day moving average. Let's start with the 50-day and see how Roku does from there. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 2: Adobe SystemsAdobe Systems (NASDAQ:ADBE) fell after reporting earnings, but held a very key spot. Support came into play from the 200-day moving average and uptrend support (blue line).I would love to see ADBE stock reclaim the key $277 level, as well as the 20-day moving average. In this event, look for a possible rally up to the 50-day moving average.Below Wednesday's low is cause for concern for longs. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 3: Beyond MeatBeyond Meat (NYSE:BYND) is on the move lower after Tim Horton's will reportedly pull BYND's products from most of its locations.So far though, BYND remains mostly range-bound. Below uptrend support near $145, and range support at $140 is on the table. Below that mark certainly raises a red flag for bulls, but if it holds, a rebound could be in store.Should support hold or should Beyond not even fall to that point, look for a possible rally to range resistance near $170 and the 50-day moving average, currently near $168. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 4: Bristol-Myers SquibbAfter hitting a low point in July, Bristol-Myers Squibb (NYSE:BMY) stock has been slowly but surely making its way higher. Remember it's in the midst of acquiring Celgene (NYSE:CELG) too.In any regard, look to see if we can get a move over $50. If so, it puts a run up to $53 on the table. * 7 Momentum Stocks to Buy On the Dip On the downside, I want to see prior short-term resistance near $48 act as support. Below uptrend support and/or the 20-day moving average, and BMY may need more time to setup.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell. As of this writing, Bret Kenwell is long CELG.

    Facebook's Portal enters crowded streaming market

    Facebook has taken its first steps into the crowded market for TV streaming, with a new version of its Portal video-chat device. The tech giant is pivoting towards more private forms of communication after data-sharing scandals, anger over its hands-off approach to offensive content, and slowing growth. Portal's focus is on video-calling, using a wide-angle camera that means you can walk around the room and stay in focus as you chat. It can be used for WhatsApp calls too. Facebook is already one of the biggest players in private messaging -- some 2.4 billion people a month use its WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram apps. It's hoping the social side of Portal will be its big selling point -- it lets users watch shows together via video call, for example. But it'll face stiff competition. It has few music apps and limited TV programming compared to established and content-rich rivals like Apple TV, Netflix and Roku. And it has had to lower prices to compete with smart speakers from Amazon and Google that sell for under 100 dollars. The new Portals will go on sale in November.
