Stock futures: Today's volatile market may be more dangerous than a bear market, because investors still have hope. Top stocks clear buy points but struggle to stay up.
Most investors tend to think that hedge funds and other asset managers are worthless, as they cannot beat even simple index fund portfolios. In fact, most people expect hedge funds to compete with and outperform the bull market that we have witnessed over the past few years. However, hedge funds are generally partially hedged and […]
The government has not suspended its controversial “golden visa” programme for wealthy foreign investors, despite a Home Office announcement last week stating that it had. “The tier 1 investor visa is not currently suspended, however we remain committed to reforming the route,” a spokesperson for the department said on Tuesday. The embarrassing climbdown for the Home Office comes just days after it said “sweeping reforms” would be conducted as part of efforts to prevent the visas being used for money laundering.

Walmart Inc. and Target Corp. want the Federal Reserve to help them get paid in real time. The retail giants are among the companies urging the Fed to develop a service to settle interbank transfers in real time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Such a service could ultimately eliminate the lag between when consumers use debit cards to pay for items and stores receive the funds.

Facebook Inc's (FB.O) losses are becoming other companies' gains. Concerns about the social media giant's declining profit margins and battered reputation have prompted 93 U.S. mutual funds to completely sell out of their positions in the company so far this year, exacerbating a roughly 35 percent decline in Facebook's share price from its highs, according to Refinitiv’s Lipper research service. The selling by fund firms including Fidelity Investments, The Hartford and Putnam Investments combined for a total of nearly 12 million shares, and came amid similar moves to liquidate positions in the company by prominent growth-focused hedge funds.
European Union regulators said Tuesday Mastercard Inc. and Visa Inc. have agreed to lower fees assessed to merchants when they accept debit or credit cards issued outside the region, a move that comes after merchants alleged that networks and banks colluded to inflate those fees. The European Commission said both companies made offers to lower these fees—known as interregional interchange fees—by a minimum of 40%. Card networks like Visa and Mastercard set interchange fees.
Shares of Square Inc. dropped 11.7% in Tuesday trading, marking the payments stock's largest single-day percentage decline since November 2017, when it fell 16.1%. The drop shaved about $3.5 billion from Square's market value, which now stands at roughly $26.7 billion, according to FactSet. Late on Monday, Stifel analyst Scott Devitt cut his price target to $95 from $100, though he maintained his buy rating on the stock. The stock closed at $63.51. Other payments stocks lagged the S&P 500 in Tuesday trading, including Mastercard Inc. , whose shares fell 4.5% after the company issued a filing regarding its resolution to a European interchange issue and also announced a dividend increase. Visa Inc. shares ended down 4.4%, while PayPal Holdings Inc. shares fell 4.3% and the S&P 500 dropped 3.2%.
Mastercard Inc. announced Tuesday that it was boosting its quarterly dividend to 33 cents a share, up from 25 cents a share previously. The company also said that it has received board approval for a new share-repurchase program that will allow it to buy back up to $6.5 billion of its Class A shares, which will become effective after the company's prior $4 billion repurchase program is complete. The dividend announcement didn't help Mastercard's stock much, as shares are down roughly 4% in afternoon trading Tuesday amid a general market selloff and a early-morning filing from Mastercard that discussed inter-regional interchange fees in the European Union. Mastercard said it would reduce the interchange fees on cross-border transactions coming into European Economic Area companies to 0.2% for debit and 0.3% for credit, for card-present transactions. The company said it would lower card-not-present, or e-commerce, interchange fees to 1.15% for debit and 1.5% for credit. Mastercard also said it would pay a $650 million fine in the fourth quarter related to this issue. "The issue appears to be resolved voluntarily, eliminating the risk, cost, and distraction of outstanding litigation, and even the potential negative impacts to the networks are modest," MoffettNathanson analyst Lisa Ellis wrote Tuesday. Mastercard shares have gained 33% so far this year, while Visa Inc. shares have risen 22%. The S&P 500 is up 1.4% in that time.

China and the U.S. struck a deal to halt the tariff rhetoric so that they can negotiate a long-term trade deal between the two countries. The fear that the U.S. and China would bog down global growth with tariffs has driven a lot of market volatility this year. Year-to-date — while not a financial disaster — equities have been under pressure and in see saw from one headline to the other.
