Wednesday October 22nd 2014: Latest financial news from the worldWall St. turns lower after shooting at Canadian parliament
By Yasmeen Abutaleb NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. stocks turned lower in afternoon trading on Wednesday, with major indexes erasing earlier gains as a shooting at the Canadian parliament unnerved investors and Boeing and Biogen sold off following results. Indexes had traded in positive territory for much of the session, putting the S&P 500 on track for a fifth straight day of gains. Earnings initially drove the move higher, with technology and material shares up on the back of strong results. ...
U.S. inflation muted in September as energy costs drop
By Lucia Mutikani WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. consumer prices rose marginally in September, painting a weak inflation picture that should give the Federal Reserve ample room to keep interest rates low for a while. The Labor Department said on Wednesday its Consumer Price Index edged up 0.1 percent last month as a rise in food and shelter costs offset a decline in energy prices. ...
Boeing profit jumps 18 percent; raises 2014 earnings view
By Alwyn Scott (Reuters) - Boeing Co reported an 18 percent increase in quarterly profit and raised its full-year core earnings forecast for the third time, reflecting booming commercial aircraft demand and increasing profitability in its defense business. But shares of the Chicago-based aerospace and defense giant slipped 1.5 percent in early trading, as analysts viewed the profit gain as a given and raised concern about signs that the costs of the 787 Dreamliner were creeping higher. The company earned $1.36 billion, or $1.86 per share, for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, up from $1. ...

Divided U.S. SEC adopts mortgage rule, decries lax lending
By Sarah N. Lynch WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. securities regulators adopted a rule on Wednesday designed to avert another financial crisis, but two officials dissented, saying it did not do enough to discourage banks from lending to borrowers with shaky credit and then passing the mortgage risk to investors. The Securities and Exchange Commission approved the so-called "risk retention" rule by a 3-2 vote, while the U.S. Federal Reserve is expected to approve it later Wednesday. The rule requires banks to keep at least 5 percent of the risk on their books when they securitize loans. ...

U.S. safety regulators on Wednesday expanded the number of vehicles in the United States affected by recalls for this problem by 28 percent to 7.8 million vehicles. Toyota has the second largest number of vehicles affected by the U.S. recalls at 877,000, trailing only Honda Motor Co's 5.1 million vehicles, according to the U.S. ...
