(Recasts, adds comments and updates prices)* Gold profits from higher inflation expectations - Commerzbank* Investors await BoJ, ECB policy meetings due this weekOct 25 (Reuters) - Gold prices reclaimed the $1,800 mark on Monday, supported by persisting worries over inflation, as investors looked ahead to the next Federal Reserve meeting for its outlook on monetary policy. Spot gold rose 0.5% to $1,801.22 per ounce by 1203 GMT. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell on Friday reiterated his view that high inflation will likely abate next year, which led gold prices to ease from their September highs in the previous session. Investors will also be watching for the meetings of the Bank of Japan and European Central Bank due on Thursday. The markets are pricing higher inflation and many participants clearly believe that the current high level of inflation is no longer merely temporary, Commerzbank analyst Daniel Briesemann said in a note.

After 24 Years, a Conductor Returns to the Met Opera
  + stars: | 2021-10-25 | by ( David Allen | ) www.nytimes.com   time to read: +1 min
Has your absence as a guest conductor at the Met simply been a case of being too busy? I take the music directorship job very seriously, in the sense that the idea is to create a musical family, a family in general. So many of my colleagues are privileged to work with the chorus and orchestra of the Metropolitan Opera, why not me? Although you don’t guffaw when you’re watching this opera, it is a comic opera, and it does have a lightness, a spring in its step, that I find is physically and musically very healthy. It’s a piece about tradition and the guarding of that tradition, keeping the flame of certain truths that have been established over hundreds of years.

Wall Street sentiment indicates that the ongoing Q3 earnings season will be challenging. They revealed their top 9 stocks that will experience a material rise from positive Q3 earnings. Wall Street is clear: there's likely to be carnage this earnings season. A key indicator supporting the theory of lasting negative earnings is the strong correlation between the year-over-year change in earnings revisions breadth and the year-over-year change in forward earnings. Wilson and his team recently selected nine companies that they predict will experience material upside once their positive Q3 earnings are announced.

Cranes stand at a construction site near the headquarters of China Evergrande Group in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, China September 26, 2021. With more than $300 billion in liabilities, Evergrande, once China's top-selling property developer, faces deep scepticism on whether it can make more near-term coupon payments with its property sales tumbling 30% in the year to Oct. 20. "While obviously a positive, the coupon payment does not address the overall concerns about Evergrande's sustained liquidity through the first maturity in Q2 2022 and beyond," said John Han, a partner at law firm Kobre & Kim in Hong Kong. Evergrande faces coupon payments totalling nearly $340 million between Nov. 1 and Dec. 28 on its offshore bonds, on top of outstanding missed payments. The developer has nearly $20 billion in offshore debt.

Zimmer’s score is so prominent in “Dune” that at times the movie feels like an otherworldly equivalent of a “Planet Earth”-style nature spectacular. “‘Dune’ is by far my most musical film,” said the director Denis Villeneuve, who also hired Zimmer for “Blade Runner 2049.” “The score is almost ubiquitous, participating directly in the narrative of the film. It’s spiritual.”In fact, Zimmer wrote more music than could fit in the film. In addition to the original soundtrack, there’s “The Dune Sketchbook (Music From the Soundtrack),” comprising extended sonic explorations, and “The Art and Soul of Dune,” a companion soundtrack to the book of the same title that goes behind the scenes of the film. For one cue, he just said, ‘This needs to sound like sand.’”

China's Chang'e-5 mission brought rocks from the moon to Earth for the first time in 45 years. That's nearly 1 billion years later than scientists thought the moon could have had volcanic eruptions. They're the first lunar samples brought back since the Apollo missions in 1976. Visitors to the National Museum in Beijing look at a display of lunar rock samples from China's Chang'e 5 mission, March 12, 2021. Since past missions harvested so little rock from the moon, scientists expect to learn much more from future samples like the Chang'e-5 rocks.

Two companies — Exact Sciences and Illumina — plan to have blood tests that detect cancer available by 2022. Getting Americans to get routine screenings like colonoscopies has helped cut down deaths from colon cancer in the last couple of decades. But only 38% of colon cancer cases are caught when the cancer is in its earliest, less deadly stages, according to the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

Mid-level and senior associates skilled at handling complex client work and managing junior lawyers are in especially high demand. Kirkland had by far the largest net gain in terms of absolute numbers, at 290 associates. But the overall hiring and attrition numbers give a sense of what kinds of firms associates are attracted to — or not.

How Verizon became the Dow's worst stock
  + stars: | 2021-10-20 | by ( Paul R. La Monica | Cnn Business | ) edition.cnn.com   time to read: +4 min
New York (CNN Business) Verizon reported earnings that topped forecasts Wednesday morning and issued a more upbeat outlook for 2022. That's some much-needed good news for the company, which has been the Dow's worst-performing stock this year, falling about 10%. AT&T T T-Mobile TMUS As such, Verizon isn't the only telecom that's struggling. "There is, of course, a little bit more competitive landscape right now," said Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg during a conference call with analysts Wednesday. That makes Verizon less interesting to investors who might have only been buying the stock for its big dividend yield while willing to overlook its sluggish growth.

REUTERS/Carlos Garcia Rawlins/File Photo/File PhotoOct 19 (Reuters) - Chinese President Xi Jinping is facing resistance over a nationwide property tax aimed at curbing housing speculation, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday, citing people with knowledge of government deliberations. However, Beijing is now settling for a limited tax plan because of strong pushback, while a proposal involving state-provided affordable housing is emerging as an alternative, the WSJ reported. An initial proposal to test-run the tax in some 30 cities has been scaled back to around 10, the report said. In internal debates, the feedback to Xi's property-tax plan from both the party's elites and its rank-and-file members has been overwhelmingly negative, the WSJ report said, citing the people familiar with the deliberations.

Spot gold ticked up 0.2% at $1,770.30 per ounce by 10:33 a.m. EDT (1433 GMT), while U.S. gold futures rose 0.1% to $1,770.30. “We’re also seeing risk aversion in the market and the dollar isn’t seeing the usual support, which may be keeping gold afloat for now,” OANDA analyst Craig Erlam said. U.S. benchmark 10-year Treasury yields climbed as investors ramped up rate hike bets, while the dollar index held steady. Market participants are increasingly expecting the U.S. Federal Reserve to start tapering asset purchases soon after data showed a solid increase in U.S. consumer prices.
