After apologizing for his post at the event on Wednesday, Musk unleashed a profanity-laced tirade against some of the advertisers for fleeing the platform. The Tesla (TSLA.O) chief acknowledged that an extended boycott by advertisers could bankrupt X, formerly Twitter, but suggested that the public would blame the brands and not him for a potential collapse. "We believe there is risk that more companies will stop advertising on X; at least on a short-term basis," D.A. Monthly U.S. ad revenue at X has declined at least 55% year-over-year each month since Musk bought the company in October 2022, Reuters reported last month. "Musk has stated that Twitter is worth a lot lesser than the $44 billion he had paid for it.

The startup's newly appointed interim head moved quickly to dismiss speculation that OpenAI's board ousted Altman due to a spat over the safety of powerful AI models. It was not clear why Murati had stepped down as interim CEO.

WeWork’s shares plunge 37% on bankruptcy reports
  + stars: | 2023-11-01 | by ( Hanna Ziady | )   time to read: +2 min
London CNN —WeWork’s shares plunged 37% in pre-market trading Wednesday, following news reports that the beleaguered company plans to file for bankruptcy as early as next week as its losses mount. The SoftBank-backed flexible workspace provider is considering filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in New Jersey, the Wall Street Journal and Reuters reported Tuesday, citing people familiar with the matter. A bankruptcy filing would mark a spectacular reversal of fortunes for a company valued at $47 billion in 2019. The company’s demise has been years in the making, after it struggled to recover from a botched IPO in 2019. At the time, listing paperwork revealed larger-than-expected losses and potential conflicts of interest related to the company’s founder and then-CEO Adam Neumann.

Company shares had plunged by as much as 20% in earlier trade. Aston Martin reported an adjusted operating loss of £48.4 million ($58.8 million) for the three months to the end of September and a net revenue of £362.1 million, below a company-compiled consensus of £370 million. "The DB12 production ramp up was temporarily affected as supplier readiness and integration of the new EE platform that supports the fully redeveloped infotainment system was delayed," Aston Martin said in its earnings report on Wednesday. Aston Martin Executive Chairman Lawrence Stroll said the launch of the DB12 has seen "extraordinary demand" and is bringing in new customers, with 55% of initial DB12 buyers new to the brand. "With the shares trading at a tenth of the level at which they listed in 2018, the optimistic comparisons Aston Martin made for itself with Italian rival Ferrari look as fanciful as they ever did."

SummaryCompanies Cuts annual profit forecastSuspends dividendsShares fall to record lowOct 12 (Reuters) - Mobico's (MCG.L) shares fell by a third to a record low on Thursday after the British transport company cut its annual profit forecast and suspended dividends, as high costs hit the group's efforts to improve profitability. The company, which changed its name from National Express to Mobico earlier this year, said it was planning to sell its North America school bus business in early 2024 to cut debt. The company was hit hard during the pandemic as lockdowns restricted travel and governments had to support transport operators. Mobico's school bus business in North America has faced high costs and labour shortages. "The profit warning just goes to show it takes more than a name change to prompt a recovery in a company's fortunes," Mould added.

In the United Kingdom, the yield on 30-year bonds also reached 5% this week, the highest level in more than two decades. Yields on Italy’s 10-year bonds hit 5% on Wednesday, the highest level since 2012, when that crisis was in full swing. Mortgage rates riseThe yields on local government bonds are usually used by banks to price mortgages. High official interest rates in America and Europe have also raised the cost of borrowing for businesses.

The US dollar is king again. Here’s why
  + stars: | 2023-09-08 | by ( Anna Cooban | )   time to read: +5 min
London CNN —The US dollar is enjoying its longest winning streak in nearly nine years. The rally comes after months of volatility, fueled by concerns that the dollar may be losing its status as the world’s reserve currency. “Rumors of the US dollar’s demise continue to be greatly exaggerated,” James Athey, investment director at Abrdn, an asset manager, told CNN. Higher interest rates tend to boost the value of a country’s currency by attracting more foreign capital, as investors anticipate making bigger returns. “The US economy continues to surprise to the upside,” Carsten Brzeski, global head of macroeconomic research at ING, told CNN.

Investors are now focused on the producer prices data due at 8:30 a.m ET that will offer more insight into inflation in the world's largest economy. U.S. Labor Department's producer price index (PPI) for final demand, is expected to rise 0.2% in July, after growing 0.1% in June. "This (PPI) data set is something of a crystal ball for consumer price inflation; when producers charge more for goods the higher costs are usually passed on to households." "Higher yields incentivize investors to park their cash in the safety of bonds, and therefore decreases demand for risky plays like equities."

But falling prices there could end up being good news for the rest of the world. However, falling prices there aren't necessarily bad news for everyone else. In China, prices are falling rather than risingData from the National Bureau of Statistics published Wednesday showed China's factory-gate prices, as measured by the producer price index, plunging 4.4% year-on-year in July for a tenth straight month of declines. Falling prices in the world's second-biggest economy could "give central bankers in the US, UK and Europe pause for thought when they weigh up their next steps," according to AJ Bell investment director Russ Mould. So deflation in China might end up being bad news for Beijing – but a blessing in disguise for the rest of the world.

The world of central banks and their policies, which include interest rates, may seem abstract — but they affect everyone. Interest rates — the rate at which you are charged or rewarded — are set by central banks, like the Fed or Bank of England. Pros and consHow consumers are affected by interest rates varies according to whether rates are higher or lower. On the flip side, higher interest rates can boost your savings, Mould added. Interest rates versus inflationInterest rates often go hand in hand with inflation (rising prices).

June 30 (Reuters) - U.S. airline stocks on Friday were set to record their strongest monthly performance since 2021, helped by easing fuel prices and signs of robust travel demand during the summer season. The outlook for the rest of summer months is also bright. The S&P 1500 airlines (.SPCOMAIR) has jumped 21.3% so far in June, the highest since February 2021 and far ahead of the S&P 500's (.SPX) 5.2% rise.
