1. Government shutdown continues; next vote at noon Monday05:57[−]

The U.S. government shutdown will continue for a third day after the Senate failed to reach a deal Sunday night. The Senate plans to vote at noon Monday on a temporary spending measure that will keep the government open through Feb. 8. There had been hopes that a deal could be reached before the work week started, preventing federal workers from being furloughed, but negotiations were unsuccessful. It's also far from certain that the procedural vote to end debate Monday will get the 60 votes it needs to pass.

2. Germany's Social Democrats vote in favor of coalition talks with MerkelВс., 21 янв.[−]

Germany's Social Democratic Party voted in favor to start official coalition negotiations with Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats on Sunday. The vote, which took place at a special party convention, was tight with 362 party members voting in favor and 279 against the coalition, according to local reports. Chancellor Merkel was handed another term by the German people in the September election but has been unable to form a majority government since. The SPD and CDU have a history of coalition governing but butted heads on topics like immigration and taxes this time around.

3. White House says President Trump in regular contact Saturday with Hill Republicans over fundingСб., 20 янв.[−]

President Trump remains in regular contact so far on Saturday with congressional Republicans, including several conversations with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and a discussion with House Speaker Paul Ryan, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. She said Trump will not negotiate on immigration until the Democrats "stop playing games and reopen the government." Lack of a funding bill agreement overnight pushed the U.S. into its first government shutdown since 2013. Both chambers reconvened Saturday afternoon. Trump, who is marking the one-year anniversary of his inauguration on Saturday, had so far postponed a trip to his Florida resort Mar-a-Lago, where supporters are meeting for a $100,000-a-couple fundraising gala. CNN reports the party will go on even if the president remains in Washington as he has pledged to do until a funding agreement can be reached.

5. Twitter: Hundreds of thousands of Americans interacted with Russian bot accounts during electionСб., 20 янв.[−]

In a blog post released Friday afternoon, Twitter Inc. provided updated information on the use of its platform by a Russian government-linked group to spread misinformation during the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Twitter said that it would email more than 677,000 U.S. users of its social-media platform to inform them that they had interacted with accounts now linked to the Internet Research Agency. Twitter said it had identified 3,814 accounts--1,062 more than previously reported--linked to the IRA that sent more than 175,000 tweets in the ten weeks leading up to the election. In addition, Twitter said it had identified more than 50,000 automated accounts used to spread the information. "Any such activity represents a challenge to democratic societies everywhere, and we're committed to continuing to work on this important issue," the company said. Twitter said it would improve machine-learning capabilities to detect and deal with such accounts, limit some abilities within Tweetdeck and on Twitter's API to combat the spread of misinformation, and work with politicians to ensure more trustworthy information in this year's mid-term elections. Twitter stock fell about 0.3% in after-hours trading.

S&P Global Ratings raised Greece's credit rating by one rung to B from B- on Friday, marking the first time S&P has upgraded the country's sovereign debt in two years.

9. Sanmina shares plunge 15% on revenue, profit warningСб., 20 янв.[−]

Sanmina Corp shares plunged in the extended session Friday after the electronics maker warned investors about its fiscal first-quarter results. Sanmina shares fell 16% to $29.90 after hours. The company said it expects first-quarter adjusted per-share losses of 48 cents, compared with its previous guidance of adjusted earnings of 68 cents to 74 cents. Sanmina now expects revenue of $1.74 billion and had previously issued guidance of sales of $1.75 billion to $1.8 billion. Analysts surveyed by FactSet had estimated adjusted earnings of 71 cents a share on revenue of $1.77 billion. "Our disappointing financial results are driven by slower than expected new program ramps and an unfavorable program mix," said Chief Executive Bob Eulau. "Our GAAP financial results were mainly impacted by the non-cash charge to our deferred tax assets that resulted from the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. We are right-sizing our fixed cost structure and we remain confident that our pipeline is strong and our second half of fiscal 2018 will be stronger than our first half as we continue to execute on our strategy." Said it expects fiscal second-quarter profits of 40 cents to 50 cents a share on sales of $1.6 billion to $1.7 billion. Analysts modeled adjusted earnings of 70 cents on sales of $1.73 billion. Sanmina stock has gained less than 1% in the last 12 months, as the S&P 500 index rose 24%.

10. Bunge stock spikes after report of Archer Daniels Midland merger attemptСб., 20 янв.[−]

Bunge Ltd. shares roared higher just before the close Friday, after a report that Archer Daniels Midland Co. was attempting a takeover. Bunge, which trades and processes agricultural commodities, had reportedly been approached previously by Glencore PLC about a merger, which portends a potential bidding war, according to The Wall Street Journal report. Bunge had been trading close to flat for the day before the report hit just minutes before markets closed for the weekend, and then spiked to a daily gain of 11.4% at $77.56. Archer Daniels stock gained 1.2%, almost all at the very end of the session, and both stocks gained slightly in after-hours trading as well.

Apple Inc. brought on several dozen employees from Silicon Valley Data Science, according to Bloomberg, as it seeks to enhance its analytics capabilities.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average on Friday morning was being dragged lower on the back of a sharp decline in shares of International Business Machines Corp.

26. Facebook seeing strong early traction for new video platform: analystПт., 19 янв.[−]

A new Morgan Stanley survey found strong early interest in Facebook Watch, the company's newly launched video platform. Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak wrote Friday that 40% of Facebook Inc. use Facebook Watch weekly, while 24% of them use it daily. "We are encouraged (and admittedly surprised) by this early Watch traction as it speaks to Facebook's ability to drive adoption of new products," Nowak wrote. "We view Watch (and video) as the next key long-term driver of Facebook engagement and monetization." Three-quarters of survey respondents who use Facebook Watch said they view videos shorter than 20 minutes every week through the platform, while half reported weekly viewings of videos that were longer than 20 minutes. Nowak wrote that these patterns are similar to what the firm has observed among viewers of Alphabet Inc.'s YouTube service. YouTube remains the leader for video consumption, he added. Facebook shares are up 41% over the past 12 months, while Alphabet shares have gained 38% and the S&P 500 is up 24%.

28. IBM's post-earnings stock selloff cuts Dow's gain by more than halfПт., 19 янв.[−]

Shares of International Business Machines Corp. sank 3.1% in premarket trade Friday, in the wake of fourth-quarter results, which would cut the Dow Jones Industrial Average's gain by more than half. IBM's stock price decline of $5.22 would shave about 36 points off the Dow, while Dow futures were up about 22 points. The stock's pullback comes after it had run up 10% so far in 2018 to close Thursday at a nine-month high. A stock selloff after earnings isn't much of a surprise, as it is on track to suffer the 12th one-day, post-earnings decline in the past 14 quarters. Meanwhile, IBM has beat earnings-per-share expectations for 13-straight quarters.

29. Apple poised to beat iPhone ASP estimates: analystПт., 19 янв.[−]

Apple Inc. shares were little changed in premarket trading Friday after analysts at Mizuho predicted that the company would beat average selling price estimates for the latest quarter when it reports results Feb. 1.

His prediction for 80 million to 81 million iPhone units sold during the December quarter also implies upside to consensus figures. "We continue to see healthy upgrade activity within the installed base which, along with better services contribution, should help the company perform," Lamba wrote. He raised his price target on Apple shares to $175 from $160 but kept his neutral rating on the stock. Apple shares are up 50% over the past 12 months, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 32%.
