Stocks swept lower as bonds, dollar struggle to steady -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsStocks swept lower as bonds, dollar struggle to steady

An employee of the Tokyo Stock Exchange looks at a stock quotation board as he works at the bourse at TSE in TokyoBy Marc Jones LONDON (Reuters) - World financial markets were unsettled again on Thursday as a week-long sell-off in benchmark government bonds, stocks and the dollar, and a race up in oil prices, was compounded by UK election uncertainty. London's FTSE , the region's biggest share market, meanwhile, was down 0.6 percent and sterling was a fraction lower at $1.5234 as attention turned to the day's national election which remains too close to call. Britain’s ability to hold on to Scotland and its place in the European Union are both potentially up for grabs depending on which party, or more likely parties, prevail.

Though it ended a stimulative asset-purchase program last October, the Fed is still buying mortgage and Treasury bonds to replenish its $4.5-trillion portfolio as holdings mature.

Row of Tesla Model S sedans are seen outside the company's headquarters in Palo Alto, CaliforniaTesla Motors Inc reported a wider first-quarter net loss on Wednesday, but outperformed expectations and stuck to key milestones for the year ahead, despite pressure on margins.

Over time, it was possible stationary storage could be a bigger business for Tesla than selling cars, he added.



Hedge fund manager Loeb takes aim at 'Oracle of Omaha' Buffett -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsHedge fund manager Loeb takes aim at 'Oracle of Omaha' Buffett

Daniel Loeb, CEO, Third Point LLC, participates in the 2010 Milken Institute Global Conference in Beverly Hills, CaliforniaBy Svea Herbst-Bayliss LAS VEGAS (Reuters) - Hedge fund mogul Daniel Loeb on Wednesday took aim at the "Oracle of Omaha," calling beloved billionaire Warren Buffett a hypocrite. "I love how he criticizes hedge funds yet he really had the first hedge fund. He criticizes activists but he was the first activist," Loeb, who runs $17.5 billion hedge fund Third Point, said about Buffett who has been running conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway for 50 years. Loeb, known in investment circles for his sharp tongue and top returns, made the comments at the SkyBridge Alternatives Conference, known as SALT, less than one week after Buffett hosted his company's shareholder meeting in Omaha.

Alcatel-Lucent defends Nokia deal as weathers U.S. slowdown -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsAlcatel-Lucent defends Nokia deal as weathers U.S. slowdown

Media people attend a news conference with Nokia and Alcatel-Lucent in ParisBy Leila Abboud and Gwénaëlle Barzic PARIS (Reuters) - Telecom equipment maker Alcatel-Lucent , which is set to be bought by larger rival Nokia , improved profit margins in the first quarter despite a marked sales slowdown in its biggest market, the United States. Although it reported a net loss, higher software sales, a weak euro, and strong demand for its Internet routing products - which help telecom operators handle heavy broadband traffic from online video - helped the French firm post a better quarter than Nokia and mobile market leader Ericsson . Both those competitors saw steep drops in their shares after missing profit targets, and Nokia's misstep prompted some Alcatel shareholders to say the takeover deal terms should be renegotiated. Alcatel-Lucent Chief Executive Michel Combes dismissed the idea on Thursday, saying there was no need to change the deal since both companies were sticking to their annual targets.



Paulson, Bernanke: What's said in Vegas stays in Vegas -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsPaulson, Bernanke: What's said in Vegas stays in Vegas

President and Portfolio Manager of Paulson & Co. Paulson speaks during the Sohn Investment Conference in New YorkWould you like to know whether sage investor and mammoth hedge fund manager John Paulson is bullish on stocks? We're also dying to share what former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke had to say, but we weren't even allowed in the room. At one of the world's biggest hedge fund industry conferences, two of the most closely followed market figures, required that every word they uttered stay unreported. Paulson, who earned billions with a bet against the overheated housing market in 2007, was a marquee speaker, but all of what he said to a packed ballroom of hedge fund managers and investors was strictly off the record.



Fox says U.S. cable customers like bundles, pay-TV strong -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsFox says U.S. cable customers like bundles, pay-TV strong

Rupert Murdoch, Executive Chairman News Corp and Chairman and CEO 21st Century Fox speaks at the WSJD Live conference in Laguna BeachTwenty-First Century Fox President Chase Carey said on Wednesday "a vast majority of customers want a bundle of channels" rather than to cherry pick networks, an option cable providers are increasingly offering in the face of declining subscriptions. Carey, who is also co-chief operating officer, made the remarks during a quarterly earnings call after Fox posted a 1.2 percent rise in adjusted revenue, helped by growth in its cable network business and the box office success of "Taken 3" and "Kingsman: The Secret Service." Letting consumers choose what networks they would like to pay for "a la carte" rather than a pricey cable subscription that includes hundreds of channels is a trend that is pitting cable providers and networks against each other. Verizon Communications Inc is the latest distributor to challenge the traditional pay-TV universe when it launched in April a new slimmed-down package of channels with the option to add on genres such as sports, kids or news.



U.S. private payrolls growth eases; productivity falls -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsU.S. private payrolls growth eases; productivity falls

Workers prepare outgoing shipments at an Amazon Fulfillment Center, ahead of the Christmas rush, in Tracy, CaliforniaU.S. private employers in April hired the fewest number of workers in more than a year, further diminishing hopes of a strong rebound in economic growth after the first-quarter slump. The tepid private job gains combined with other data on Wednesday showing a second straight quarterly decline in productivity make it less likely the U.S. Federal Reserve will raise interest rates in June as had been expected at the start of the year. Private payrolls increased 169,000 last month, the smallest gain since January 2014, the ADP National Employment Report showed. Private sector job growth has slowed since November.
