REUTERS/Staff/File Photo Acquire Licensing RightsLONDON, Nov 28 (Reuters) - The EU is falling behind Britain in tapping into savers' money to boost the stock market, despite reforms in continental Europe being a step in the right direction, an official with Germany's bourse told Reuters. For Maassen there is an opportunity in Europe to rival US capital markets. Maassen urged policymakers to speed up the implementation of the Capital Markets Union, a longstanding project to create a single market for capital beyond national borders. Earlier this month, European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde called for a capital markets union, with a single supervisor and trading infrastructure, to finance its digitalisation and green transition.

Shein has not determined the size of its offering or the valuation at IPO, the sources said. Shein, Goldman and JPMorgan declined to comment, while Morgan Stanley did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The most valuable China-founded enterprise to go public in the United States so far is ride-hailing giant Didi Global's (92Sy.MU) debut in 2021 at $68 billion valuation. In 2021, the comparable number was $300 billion when the IPO market was close to its peak. Fast fashion retailers have been gaining popularity in the United States, with Shein taking away market share from the likes of Gap (GPS.N) as shoppers look for fresher styles.

Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase and Morgan Stanley have been hired as lead underwriters on the offering, and Shein could go public sometime in 2024, the sources said. Shein has been planning to go public for the last few years, but halted plans almost twice since then. The fast-fashion giant's decision now comes at a time when the broader market for new issues remains laggard. Fast fashion retailers have been gaining popularity in the United States, with Shein taking away market share from the likes Gap (GPS.N) as shoppers look for fresher styles and trendier clothing. Shein's confidential IPO was first reported by the Wall Street Journal earlier on Monday.

Hashtag searches for dupes of major brands - including Skims underwear and Deckers' (DECK.N) Ugg boots - have been viewed millions of times on TikTok. Graphic shows pictures of four original products and their original prices under named brands compared with the prices of their 'dupe' counterparts. Newer technologies like the Google Lens app allow people to take photos of items they like and find similar products for sale. In other cases, dupe sellers opt to replicate the look of higher-priced originals with cheaper materials to maximize profit. However, experts say dupe sellers have grown increasingly skilled at avoiding brand logos and other design features that could infringe existing patents or copyrights.

Bain has been interviewing investment banks to hire financial advisers that will help the private equity firm come up with a plan to cash out on its majority stake in Varsity Brands, the sources said. Varsity Brands generates more than $400 million in 12-month earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, the sources added, asking not to be identified because the matter is confidential. Varsity Brands and Bain declined to comment. Varsity Brands consists of two main businesses, BSN SPORTS and Varsity Spirit.

"That was a big wet blanket" for the IPO market, Greg Martin from Rainmaker Securities told me. Buy now, pay later firm Klarna, another oft-mentioned IPO candidate, told CNBC it has no immediate plans to go public. This is in stark contrast to most years, when big IPOs went public in November and December. A month earlier, in November 2020, Sotera Health raised $1.1 billion, and Miravai Life Sciences raised $1.6 billion. By contrast, a normal year should see at least $50 billion raised.

Nov 6 (Reuters) - Wall Street brokerages largely initiated Birkenstock (BIRK.N) with their top ratings, pointing to a likely boost from the German luxury sandal maker's recent investments to increase capacity, expansion into newer styles and brand loyalty. Birkenstock's shares dropped to as low as $35.83 in the days after listing on Oct. 11 and has traded below the IPO price of $46 apiece. Citigroup was among the most bullish, with a price target of $52, a more than 26% jump from the last close. Telsey Advisory Group analysts said Birkenstock has further avenue to expand into footwear categories such as orthopedics and professional, outdoor and active, kids, home, and sneakers. Morgan Stanley assigned a price target of $41 and an "equal-weight" rating, saying most catalysts were already priced in.

Birkenstock made its New York Stock Exchange debut last month at $41, below its initial public offering price. The company priced its IPO at $46 per share, in the middle of its indicated price range. Goldman Sachs sees an opportunity for market share gains, supported by the easing of supply constraints, as well as Birkenstock's pricing ability. Morgan Stanley is skeptical of any upside, assigning a price target of $41 and an "equal-weight" rating, as it sees most catalysts as already priced in. Birkenstock has since recovered, but barely breached its debut open price, closing on Friday at $41.16.

The German shoe brand's IPO missed the mark, but analysts say the company has upside. I visited the Birkenstock store in Soho to see how the company is approaching its retail footprint. In other words, it's as safe a bet as fashion brands come. Although it isn't a designer brand, Birkenstock falls in the luxury category with prices ranging from $50 to $475.

THINK OF the bed nook as the fluffy fur-lined Birkenstock of the home: chic, snuggly and engineered to encourage maximum coziness. We spend a lot of time scouting social-media inspiration boards and, as autumn shifts into hibernation high season, nooks seem to be everywhere. Veere Grenney, a London-based interior designer known for insistently inviting nooks, notes that, historically, recessed and curtained beds served a purpose: protecting dreamers from unwelcome drafts. “There’s so much friction in the world right now, the ability to retreat into a safe place at home is very appealing. There’s something embryonic about it.”

The Wall Street giant's net profit slumped 33% to $2.06 billion, or $5.47 per share, it said on Tuesday. Goldman's investment banking fees of $1.55 billion was largely unchanged from last year as debt underwriting activity resumed and the market for initial public offerings picked up. Goldman had taken a charge of $504 million on GreenSky in the second quarter. Solomon has shifted the firm's focus back to its traditional strengths - investment banking and trading, and aims to grow in asset and wealth management. Investment banking results have been mixed for peers, with JPMorgan Chase (JPM.N) reporting a 6% decline in revenue, while Citigroup (C.N) said fees jumped 34%.

Mandel Ngan | Afp | Getty ImagesTop economists and central bankers appear to be in agreement on one thing: interest rates will stay higher for longer, clouding the outlook for global markets. Despite the pause, Fed officials have signaled that rates may have to remain higher for longer than markets had initially expected if inflation is to sustainably return to the central bank's 2% target. The European Central Bank last month issued a 10th consecutive interest rate hike to take its main deposit facility to a record 4% despite signs of a weakening euro zone economy. "We may have more shocks that may drive inflation up, and that's why of course we have to remain very cautious about inflation developments."

The July-September period, which analysts usually see it as a weak quarter, saw a 17% rise in funding to $3 billion for 103 companies, venture capital firm Space Capital said in the report. The upbeat figures could mean that investors are returning to startups that could tap government funding and develop tech crucial to space programs. The companies funded in the third quarter included Axiom Space which raised $350 million, and Sierra Space which saw an inflow of $290 million. "Despite continued headwinds in financial markets, the world is waking up to the importance of space-based technologies," Space Capital said.

LONDON, Oct 13 (Reuters Breakingviews) - St James’s Place (SJP.L) is in a tricky spot. Wealth managers around the world are finding it harder to justify their fees as interest rates in countries like the UK have topped 5%. Friday’s 16% drop in the 4 billion pound UK wealth manager’s shares reflects its problematic twist on that trend. The UK firm is under pressure from regulators to overhaul its fee structure to comply with new rules brought in by the Financial Conduct Authority. SJP, run by CEO Andrew Croft, has been facing intense scrutiny due to its complex fee structure and stiff penalties for clients who look to withdraw their cash.

X pushed back, with Musk exchanging combative posts with Breton on the website. While the process drags on, any problematic posts can just keep proliferating on X and other sites.

REUTERS/Toby Melville/ File Photo Acquire Licensing RightsOct 12 (Reuters) - Shares of Birkenstock (BIRK.N) dropped 6% on Thursday, deepening losses after the German luxury sandal seller stumbled the day before in its Wall Street debut. In its first session on Wall Street on Wednesday, Birkenstock tumbled over 12% from the $46 price set in its initial public offer, raising $1.48 billion. Last trading at about $37.79 on Thursday, the stock has now dropped 18% from its IPO price.

Shares closed nearly 30% higher on Rivian’s first day of trading. Investors’ money wasn’t tied to making loan payments as much, so they could invest more in the stock market. All in all, the US IPO market fell 94.8% to $8 billion in 2022, a 32-year low. Fast forward to 2023Even though the Fed continued to raise interest rates, the stock market started to get out of its slump, and suddenly the IPO market came out of hibernation. Sometimes companies even purposefully set their IPO prices low so investors get super excited and rush to buy shares, boosting the prices up.
