Jacob "Kobi" Alexander, the Woodbury, New York-based software developer's founder, entered the plea in federal court in Brooklyn, after ending his fight to avoid extradition. Benjamin Brafman, Alexander's lawyer, said he was "bitterly disappointed." It was unclear if Alexander would appeal.
HP Inc beats estimates, weak printer demand weighs on forecast
By Aishwarya Venugopal (Reuters) - HP Inc , the hardware business of the former Hewlett-Packard Co, reported higher-than-expected quarterly revenue and profit as demand recovered for its notebooks. However, HP forecast current-quarter profit below analysts' estimates, reflecting weak sales of its printers as companies cut costs across industries. HP's shares fell nearly 6 percent in extended trading on Wednesday. Third-quarter revenue from the company's computer business rose 7.5 percent from the second quarter as sales of notebooks improved. ...
U.S. banking regulators focused on cyber security after SWIFT attacks
U.S. banking regulators said on Wednesday they are focused on cyber security risks and controls for U.S. financial institutions after attacks earlier this year involving the global financial network known as SWIFT. In a letter responding to questions from Representative Carolyn Maloney, a Democrat from New York, the regulators also said the U.S. Treasury Department's Office of the Comptroller of the Currency was drafting guidance on interbank messaging and wholesale payment systems. "As part of ongoing supervision activities, the OCC's onsite examination teams regularly address emerging issues, such as the recent reports of cyber-attacks involving SWIFT," said the letter from banking regulators including the Federal Reserve Board and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
Oil prices fall as market focus returns to global supply overhang
By Henning Gloystein SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Crude prices edged lower on Thursday as brimming U.S. and Asian fuel inventories returned investors' attention to a large global supply overhang, cutting short a price rally and restricting Brent crude futures to below the $50 a barrel mark. International benchmark Brent crude oil futures were trading at $48.95 per barrel at 0132 GMT in early Asian trade, down 10 cents, after closing down 1.8 percent previously. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were at $46.68 a barrel, down 9 cents, after falling 2.8 percent on Wednesday.
SEC fines Wilbur Ross firm $2.3 million over fees
The fine is the latest in a string of actions taken by the SEC against the private equity sector, as it seeks to improve transparency and crack down on undisclosed fee collection by some fund managers. In exchange for promises to deliver annual returns higher than 15 percent, U.S. buyout firms typically charge their investors an array of fees for their services. For instance, private equity firms usually charge a management fee worth around 1.5 percent of the total cash managed.
Japanese seek bargains as economy limps, Abenomics loses shine
By Leika Kihara TOKYO (Reuters) - Three years of so-called "Abenomics", Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's bold stimulus program, has failed to dislodge a deflationary mindset among businesses and consumers. As the world's third-largest economy falters again - with a stronger yen gnawing at overseas profits and domestic consumption sapping companies' confidence to invest or sufficiently raise wages - firms that increased their prices in the hope of a sustained recovery are rethinking their strategy. "There's a sense the economy is stalling and companies' earnings are bad this year, so I'm holding off from spending on big items," she said.
Indonesian stocks dally at record peak as investors fear tipping point
By Fransiska Nangoy JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesian stocks are on a roll - with 18 percent gains this year and a boost from President Joko Widodo's economic reforms - and yet, investors worry about buying more of a market hitting historic peaks. The Jakarta Composite Index is Asia's second-best performer in dollar terms this year but its winning streak has turned share valuations uncomfortably rich. The ratio of the average price to 12-month forward earnings for Indonesia's MSCI index , or the PE ratio, is 16.44 - well above its historical average of 12.4 and at its highest since 1999.
Puerto Rico cannot enforce a Wal-Mart tax: U.S. appeals court
A U.S. appeals court on Wednesday said cash-strapped Puerto Rico cannot force Wal-Mart Stores Inc's affiliate on the island to pay a special corporate tax that the retailer claimed was discriminatory and violated the U.S. Constitution. The 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston upheld a lower court order blocking Puerto Rico from imposing its alternative minimum tax against Wal-Mart Puerto Rico Inc. Wal-Mart argued it was the only company that fit that description and effectively taxed on items from its own distribution centers but not those bought from Puerto Rican vendors.
More U.S. retailers probing phony Egyptian cotton
CHICAGO/NEW DELHI (Reuters) - U.S. retailer Bed Bath & Beyond on Wednesday said it ordered an external audit of textiles from Welspun India , after Target Corp last week accused the Indian manufacturer of passing off cheap sheets as premium Egyptian cotton for two years. This could compound the woes of Welspun, which supplies to several large U.S. retailers and has seen its shares plummet nearly 43 percent since Target's announcement on Friday. It also harms Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's efforts to spur global companies to increase manufacturing in India.
