President Xi says China should not focus on growth rate only -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsPresident Xi says China should not focus on growth rate only

Jinping speaks during a media conference in the Great Hall of the People in BeijingChinese President Xi Jinping said on Saturday that the country should not focus on its economic growth rate only, reiterating China's push for a more sustainable, higher-quality expansion. Chinese leaders have announced an economic growth target of around 7 percent for this year, below the 7.5 percent goal in 2014 and the slowest rate in a quarter-century. Analysts anticipate further interest rate cuts in China this year.



Fed's Yellen sees gradual rate hikes starting this year -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsFed's Yellen sees gradual rate hikes starting this year

U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen arrives for a luncheon at the Federal Reserve in San Francisco, CaliforniaBy Ann Saphir and Michael Flaherty SAN FRANCISCO/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen signaled that the U.S. central bank will likely start raising borrowing costs later this year, even before inflation and wages have returned to health, but emphasized the return to normal interest rates will be gradual. A downturn in core inflation or wage growth could force the Fed to delay the first increase to borrowing costs since 2006, the central bank's chief said on Friday, but policymakers should not wait for inflation to near the Fed's 2-percent goal before tightening monetary policy. The Fed has held short-term borrowing costs near zero since December 2008. After the first rate increase, Yellen said, a further, gradual tightening in monetary policy will likely be warranted.



Intel in talks to buy Altera, shares of firms surge -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsIntel in talks to buy Altera, shares of firms surge

Dancing spider-like robots are displayed at the Intel booth during the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas(Reuters) - Intel Corp is in talks to buy fellow chipmaker Altera Corp in a deal likely to top $10 billion, according to a source familiar with the matter, making it Intel's biggest purchase ever and the latest merger in the quickly consolidating semiconductor sector. The acquisition of Altera, which makes programmable chips widely used in cellphone towers, the military and other industrial applications, would underscore Intel Chief Executive Officer Brian Krzanich's determination to expand into new markets as the personal computer industry loses steam. Earlier this month, Intel slashed nearly $1 billion from its first-quarter revenue forecast to $12.8 billion, plus or minus $300 million, as small businesses put off upgrading their personal computers. Shares of Altera shot up about 28 percent after the talks were first reported by the Wall Street Journal, closing at $44.39 per share on the Nasdaq.



Stocks likely to drift as investors await Fed, earnings -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsStocks likely to drift as investors await Fed, earnings

Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock ExchangeWall Street investors may find little reason to make big moves next week as they await monthly U.S. jobs data and any news that could change expectations for the first interest rate hike in almost a decade. The Labor Department report is due on Friday, when the stock market will be closed for Good Friday, leaving investors unable to trade on the data until the following week. In the meantime, investors will continue adjusting to lowered earnings forecasts for the first quarter and the uncertain direction of the dollar. Stocks have trended downward since rallying on the Federal Reserve's March 18 statement, in which it suggested a less-aggressive approach to raising interest rates than investors had expected.



Chevron exits Caltex Australia stake for $3.7 billion -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsChevron exits Caltex Australia stake for $3.7 billion

A Caltex sign is seen at a petrol station in MelbourneBy Morag MacKinnon PERTH (Reuters) - U.S. energy giant Chevron sold its entire stake in refiner Caltex Australia Ltd for A$4.7 billion ($3.7 billion) in Asia’s biggest block deal this year, as falling oil prices and high costs hurt margins. Offshore institutional investor demand for the 50 percent stake in Australia’s biggest refiner was strong, with bidding driving the final price to A$35 a share, a spokeswoman for Goldman Sachs, the sole underwriter for the deal, confirmed on Saturday. The $3.7 billion deal is Asia's largest block transaction this year, eclipsing the government of India’s $3.6 billion sale of its stake in Coal India Ltd in January. Australia has seen a rush of block trades in the past month as investors look to capitalise on strong valuations following a share market that is rising on hopes of more interest rate cuts.



Oil dives 5 percent as worries about Iran talks trump Yemen -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsOil dives 5 percent as worries about Iran talks trump Yemen

A general view shows oil tanks at the Bashneft-Ufimsky refinery plant outside Ufa, BashkortostanOil tumbled 5 percent on Friday, erasing the previous session's gains, as Yemen's conflict looked less likely to disrupt Middle East crude shipments and investors turned their focus to talks for a potential Iran nuclear deal that could put more supply on the market. Oil prices still notched their second straight weekly gain, boosted by the dollar's weakness in recent sessions. On Thursday, oil jumped 5 percent on fears that the conflict in Yemen could disrupt cargoes on the neighboring Bab el-Mandeb Strait, where 3.8 million bpd of crude and oil products flow. Yemen's Houthi rebels made broad gains in the country's south and east despite a second day of Saudi-led air strikes meant to check the Iranian-backed militia's efforts to overthrow President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.



U.S. economic growth slows in fourth quarter; corporate profits fall -  BlackRock Global Allocation Inv A(MDLOX) newsU.S. economic growth slows in fourth quarter; corporate profits fall

A man pushes his shopping cart down an aisle at a Home Depot store in New YorkBy Lucia Mutikani WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. economic growth cooled in the fourth quarter as previously reported and after-tax corporate profits took a hit from a strong dollar, which could undermine future business spending. Corporate profits from outside the United States fell at an 8.8 percent rate, the steepest decline since the 2007-2009 recession. "Slower profit growth could mean slower investment in the coming months," said Thomas Costerg, an economist at Standard Chartered in New York. For all of 2014, after-tax corporate profits fell 8.3 percent, the largest annual drop since 2008.

Woman waves a flag with Petrobras' logo as she takes part in a demonstration in defense of Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff and the state-run oil company Petrobras, in Rio de JaneiroBy Caroline Stauffer SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazilian police on Friday arrested the CEO of Grupo Galvão, the latest executive seized in a corruption probe focused on state-run oil firm Petroleo Brasileiro SA. Dario Galvão, chief executive of the construction group, and Guilherme Esteves, a lobbyist who is being investigated for funneling bribe money, were taken to federal police headquarters in the southern city of Curitiba, a court spokeswoman said. Trials are underway in Curitiba, in what has become Brazil's biggest-ever corruption probe known as Operation Car Wash. In December, prosecutors accused the CEO of participating in a cartel of construction executives that fixed prices on contracts at Petrobras, as the oil company is known.
