Wednesday October 1st 2014: Latest financial news from the worldStock futures begin fourth quarter flat, data awaited
By Ryan Vlastelica NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures were little changed on Wednesday as investors looked ahead to a number of economic reports that could set the tone for the fourth quarter on Wall Street. * Markets are coming off a positive third quarter with a seventh straight quarterly gain for both the S&P 500 and Nasdaq, but also a decline for major indexes in September. * The S&P has largely traded in a range for the past six weeks, finding resistance at its record close and support at its 50-day moving average. ...
Ackman's Pershing Square raises $3 billion in fund listing
LONDON (Reuters) - Pershing Square Holdings, a fund managed by activist investor Bill Ackman, raised $3.07 billion ahead of a stock market listing in Amsterdam, the company said on Wednesday. The fund boosts the firepower of billionaire Ackman, famed for aggressive moves such as a $1 billion bet against U.S. nutrition firm Herbalife and a battle to broker a sale of Botox maker Allergan to Valeant Pharmaceuticals.

Special Report: In foreign hands, British automakers overtake France
By Costas Pitas and Gilles Guillaume LONDON/PARIS (Reuters) - When Britain lost its last native car company 20 years ago, it was lamented across the political spectrum as a national catastrophe. "The sheer stupidity and immorality of this betrayal is too scandalous to be ignored," wrote a columnist in the conservative Times of London. The left-leaning Guardian bemoaned: "No one can conceive of Renault, Fiat or indeed BMW fattening themselves up after years of emaciation, ready for sell-off to a foreign rival. ...
Asian factories slow in September, push inflation ever lower
By Wayne Cole SYDNEY (Reuters) - Factory activity stumbled across much of Asia in September, with slowdowns in India, Japan and Taiwan and an outright decline in South Korea delivering a setback to hopes for a pick in world growth this year. The lackluster performance helped lift the U.S. dollar above 110.00 yen for the first time since mid-2008 while punishing commodity prices globally, a positive for consumers but also a force for disinflation. Indeed, subsiding price pressures was a feature of many of the manufacturing surveys out on Wednesday. ...

By Emma Thomasson PARIS (Reuters) - German sportswear maker Adidas, facing investor discontent after a series of profit warnings, plans to return as much as 1.5 billion euros ($1.9 billion) to shareholders over the next three years. The shareholder return program would be financed mainly from the group's free cash flow, with buybacks to start in the current quarter and be completed by the end of 2017, Adidas said in a statement on Wednesday. The buybacks would not come at the expense of a planned hike in investment in marketing, an Adidas spokesman added. ...

JPMorgan to face U.S. class action in $10 billion MBS case
By Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - A federal judge on Tuesday said JPMorgan Chase & Co must face a class action lawsuit by investors who claimed the largest U.S. bank misled them about the safety of $10 billion of mortgage-backed securities it sold before the financial crisis. U.S. District Judge Paul Oetken in Manhattan certified a class action as to JPMorgan's liability but not as to damages, saying it was unclear how investors could value the certificates they bought, given how the market was "not particularly liquid. ...

By Yasmeen Abutaleb NEW YORK (Reuters) - Earnings conference calls that inspire little more than silence are not a great sign for the company's shares in the days that follow, according to a study released on Wednesday.
