Strong German retail sales keep European shares near seven-year highs -  Prudential Jennison 20/20 Focus A(PTWAX) newsStrong German retail sales keep European shares near seven-year highs

The German share price index DAX is seen at Frankfurt's stock exchangeBy Marius Zaharia LONDON (Reuters) - European shares rose close to seven-year highs on Tuesday as better than expected German retail sales further buoyed investors days before the European Central Bank kicks off a trillion-euro bond buying program. The gains follow a rise in Asia and another record day on the Wall Street . Euro zone government bond yields were slightly higher but remained near record lows as investors anticipated the ECB's purchases. German retail sales rose 2.9 percent month-on-month and 5.3 percent year-on-year in January, more than economists had forecast, helping lift Germany's DAX index 0.4 percent.



Barclays gives information to U.S. precious metals probe -  Prudential Jennison 20/20 Focus A(PTWAX) newsBarclays gives information to U.S. precious metals probe

A branch of Barclays bank is seen in central LondonBarclays has been providing information to an investigation into precious metals by the U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ), the bank said in its 2014 annual report on Tuesday, a week after a similar statement by HSBC. The DoJ and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission are investigating at least 10 banks for possible rigging of precious metals markets, the Wall Street Journal reported last week, citing people close to the inquiries. Tuesday's acknowledgment of its involvement in the investigation comes after HSBC said in its annual report on Feb. 23 that the DoJ had issued a request to HSBC Holdings in November seeking documents related to a criminal antitrust investigation it was conducting.



Brent crude up $1 to over $60.50 as global markets firm -  Prudential Jennison 20/20 Focus A(PTWAX) newsBrent crude up $1 to over $60.50 as global markets firm

An oil well is seen near DenverBy Henning Gloystein SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Brent crude oil prices rose more than a dollar to above $60.50 a barrel on Tuesday, tracking firmer Asian markets, but analysts warned the market remained oversupplied. Most Asian stock markets edged up on Tuesday, bolstered by a record day on Wall Street, while a resurgent yen helped knock the U.S. dollar index off an 11-year high, making commodities priced in the greenback slightly cheaper for holders of other currencies. A drop in U.S. rig counts is also boosting oil prices, analysts said. "Brent crude prices (are) attempting to rally on rapid week-on-week reduction in U.S. ... rig count," Morgan Stanley said on in a note on Tuesday.



What would the Dow look like if it included Apple? -  Prudential Jennison 20/20 Focus A(PTWAX) newsWhat would the Dow look like if it included Apple?

Apple logo is pictured inside the newly opened Omotesando Apple store at a shopping district in TokyoBy Rodrigo Campos and Chuck Mikolajczak NEW YORK (Reuters) - It may be by far the most valuable American company but Apple Inc still can’t get into at least one exclusive club – the 30-member Dow Jones Industrial Average. It is, though, hurting those who tie their investments to the performance of the venerable Dow, which was first calculated in 1896 and is still probably the best-known stock index in the world. Since Apple split its shares seven-for-one last June 6, it’s delivered investors a gain of more than 43 percent including dividend payments, and that has contributed almost one third of the Nasdaq 100’s return of 18.6 percent, according to ETF.com. By comparison, the Dow’s total return has been only 8.97 percent over that period, and it has also underperformed the S&P500 – which does include Apple – and has a 9.56 percent return.  Had Apple been substituted for 29 of the 30 Dow components last June, the index would have been higher.



Connecticut launches probe into Lenovo use of Superfish software -  Prudential Jennison 20/20 Focus A(PTWAX) newsConnecticut launches probe into Lenovo use of Superfish software

Lenovo tablets and mobile phones are displayed during a news conference on the company's annual results in Hong KongConnecticut Attorney General George Jepsen's office said on Monday it has launched an investigation into Lenovo Group Ltd's sales of laptops pre-loaded with Superfish software, which the U.S. government last month warned made users vulnerable to cyber attacks. The office said that Jepsen last week sent letters to Lenovo, the world's biggest personal computer maker, and privately held software maker Superfish asking them to provide information, including contracts and emails that discuss their partnership. Reports that the pre-loaded software tracks users' web searching and browsing for advertising purposes are "alarming revelations" that suggest Lenovo may have "seriously undermined computer users' online security and privacy," Jepsen said in his Feb. 27 letter to Lenovo. A Lenovo spokesman said the company has seen Jepsen's letter "and will cooperate in responding to the query." Superfish has not yet received the letter but expects to cooperate fully with the investigation, according to an email from a spokeswoman.



Barclays takes $1.2 billion charge as FX settlement looms -  Prudential Jennison 20/20 Focus A(PTWAX) newsBarclays takes $1.2 billion charge as FX settlement looms

A man passes automated teller machines at a Barclays bank branch in LondonBy Steve Slater and Matt Scuffham LONDON (Reuters) - Barclays took a 750 million pound ($1.2 billion) charge in the fourth quarter as it prepares to settle allegations its traders manipulated foreign exchange markets, overshadowing the bank's efforts to slash costs and boost profits. Past conduct problems continue to dog Barclays Chief Executive Antony Jenkins, but despite the burgeoning budget for litigation he accepted his first bonus since taking charge three years ago, helping to boost his total pay to 5.5 million pounds from 1.6 million in 2013. Barclays increased its litigation provision by 250 percent to 1.7 billion pounds, but Jenkins said the bank would make significant progress this year in resolving the forex probes. Barclays pulled out of settling allegations its traders tried to rig foreign exchange benchmarks in a deal between U.S. and UK authorities and six rival banks in November because it had not reached a deal with New York's regulator.



United Airlines sees potential fit for Boeing 777-300ER, not yet 777X -  Prudential Jennison 20/20 Focus A(PTWAX) newsUnited Airlines sees potential fit for Boeing 777-300ER, not yet 777X

United Continental Airlines CFO John Rainey speaks during Reuters Aerospace and Defense Summit in Washington(Reuters) - United Airlines has no immediate interest in purchasing 777X aircraft from Boeing Co but views the plane's predecessor, the 777-300ER, as a potentially good fit for its network, the carrier's Chief Financial Officer, John Rainey, told Reuters in an interview Monday. While Rainey has said the 777-300ER interests United, he noted Monday that the aircraft could be a quick fix in markets where United needs additional seats to satisfy demand so customers are not forced to book on United's competitors. United currently is considering whether to swap Boeing 787 Dreamliners it has on order for its first 777-300ER aircraft, which can fit more seats. The swap would be a victory for Boeing, which has long insisted it can sell the 100 777-300ERs it plans to produce annually before it shifts toward building the 777X, starting in 2017.

IBM shareholder sues company, alleging it overvalued chip unit -  Prudential Jennison 20/20 Focus A(PTWAX) newsIBM shareholder sues company, alleging it overvalued chip unit

A worker is pictured behind a logo at the IBM stand on the CeBIT computer fair in HanoverBy Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - IBM Corp was sued on Monday by a shareholder that said it committed securities fraud by failing to write down a money-losing semiconductor unit before agreeing to pay another company $1.5 billion to take that unit off its hands. The lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court arose from IBM's announcement last Oct. 20 that it would sell the unit to GlobalFoundries Inc, and take a related $4.7 billion pre-tax charge. Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc is among IBM's largest shareholders. According to the complaint, IBM inflated its stock price before selling the semiconductor unit by carrying the unit's property, plant and equipment assets on its books at $2.4 billion, when it should have known the assets were worthless.
