  • With sales sputtering, Apple's iPad looks to IBM alliance
    Apple Inc's iPad is losing steam just four years after its release, but an alliance with International Business Machines Corp could rejuvenate a flagging product by entering into a largely untapped corporate market. Apple shipped 13.2 million iPads in the June quarter, 8 percent fewer than a year earlier and lagging Wall Street's forecast for 14 million or more. Apple helped create the tablet market in 2010 with its first iPad. Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook described iPad sales as "very bifurcated" - they continue to grow at 50 percent or above in emerging markets such as the Middle East and China, but in developed countries like the United States, the "market is weaker."More

  • NY Fed found serious problems at Deutsche Bank's U.S. arms: source

    A man walks past Deutsche Bank offices in LondonThe Federal Reserve Bank of New York has found serious problems in Deutsche Bank's U.S. operations, including shoddy financial reporting, weak technology and inadequate auditing and oversight, a person close to the matter told Reuters. In a letter to the German lender's executives last December, a senior official with the New York Fed described financial reports produced by some of the bank's U.S. divisions as "low quality, inaccurate and unreliable", said the source, who is familiar with the letter. The New York Fed, as the U.S. central bank's eyes and ears on Wall Street, directly supervises the biggest U.S. and foreign banks, partly through embedded regulators who go to work each day inside the banks. Deutsche Bank shares lost 1.8 percent in early trading, the biggest decliners on both Germany's blue-chip index and among the European banking sector, on fears that U.S. regulators could take action against the bank.

  • European shares edge up on earnings, risk aversion remains

    A trader works at Frankfurt stock exchangeBy Lionel Laurent LONDON (Reuters) - European equities edged higher in early trade on Wednesday, extending gains from Tuesday after a batch of positive earnings and U.S. economic data briefly calmed worries over stretched valuations and the pace of economic recovery. The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 share index was 0.3 percent higher at 0742 GMT, buoyed by better-than-expected earnings from German automaker Daimler and Dutch paint-and-chemicals firm AkzoNobel. Gains were more muted in Europe - where the pace of economic recovery and the impact of a Russia slowdown have worried investors - than in much of Asia or the United States, where stocks hit fresh milestones and where earnings from bellwethers such as Apple Inc and Verizon topped forecasts. "Geopolitical tensions are preventing a better market development in Europe," said Christian Stocker, equity strategist at UniCredit.

  • Wall Street rejects Ackman's Herbalife 'death blow'

    A Herbalife logo is shown on a poster at a clinic in the Mission District in San FranciscoBy Svea Herbst-Bayliss and Ryan Vlastelica NEW YORK (Reuters) - Billionaire investor William Ackman's latest volley of accusations against Herbalife Ltd on Tuesday missed its mark on Wall Street, with investors sending the stock price soaring 25 percent. Ackman, who has been battling the California-based nutrition company for 19 months and has a $1 billion bet it will eventually go bust, told 500 people in a New York auditorium - and thousands watching the webcast - that Herbalife is a criminal enterprise that targets minorities, counts non-existent customers, and breaks labor laws. Ackman's $14.7 billion hedge fund Pershing Square Capital Management unveiled its $1 billion short bet against Herbalife in December 2012, calling the company a pyramid scheme where members earn more money from recruiting than by actually selling products to end users. Herbalife has rejected the claims.
