Financial Services are behind the global average on climate change disclosure

Datamaran – the leading platform that analyzes ESG disclosure – releases a brief on the TCFD signatories’ disclosure of climate change risks

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, August 20, 2018 / — Financial Services are lagging behind all other industries when it comes to climate change disclosure according to a new data brief released by Datamaran. Datamaran is the global leader in Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions for non-financial risk management.

Primarily dominated by financial services, there are over 200 of The Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) signatories across all sectors, which account for $44 billion in average market capitalization. Coupled with the fact that financial services are one of the biggest sectors in terms of market capitalization, approximately $17 trillion, their potential impact on climate change can be far reaching.

In the data brief that will be released Monday the 20th of August 2018, Datamaran compares the TCFD financial services signatories to other (non-financial services) sector signatories and explores how they disclose on climate change related risks in their annual financial reports. The brief reveals a gap between the two. Twice as many non-financial services signatories report on climate change with a high emphasis compared to financial services. [Financial services make up 50% of the TCFD signatories.]

Dr Donato Calace, Director of Innovation at Datamaran commented: “It is not surprising that climate change is not seen as a material topic in the financial services sector itself, however they have the power to influence the market through impact investments, green bonds, and loans. The time is ripe for financial services to take the lead as there are signs that show the tide is changing, such as, the EU action plan or the TCFD recommendations.”

Further findings include that non-financial services are more proactive in climate change reporting. They started to put more emphasis on climate change in their reports a year before the TCFD recommendations were released, going from 31% in 2014 to 43% in 2015. The study shows that financial services signatories are observed to be more reactive. It was only the year after the TCFD recommendations were introduced that an increase was seen in high emphasis reporting on climate change topics. Interestingly, in 2018, financial services saw a 10% drop in high emphasis reporting on greenhouse gases but saw a 14% rise in climate change disclosure.

Three years after the TCFD recommendations were released, the gap between the sectors on high emphasis reporting has been reduced, moving from 31% in 2016 to 15% in 2018.

Further details of the research could be found in Datamaran’s data brief available here.

Harding and Company – US Markets – What to Watch in the Week Ahead

Earnings Season is Drawing to an End

Harding and Company looks at the week ahead as Alibaba, one of the biggest China listed stocks in the US markets reports mid-week.

MANHATTEN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, August 20, 2018 / — Harding and Company looks at the week ahead as Alibaba, one of the biggest China listed stocks in the US markets reports mid-week.

A steep downturn in heavyweight Chinese internet stocks and recent weakness in half of the so-called FANG group have some investors worried that a key component of Wall Street's near-decade long rally may be low on fuel.

Outstanding gains in Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Alphabet have underpinned much of the U.S. stock market's rally in recent years, along with the broader tech sector, but the group is widely viewed as overbought and valuations remain expensive.

Backed up by strong earnings growth and investor confidence in Silicon Valley's innovation track record, the S&P 500 technology index is up 16 percent in 2018, making tech Wall Street's top performer.

But a recent slump in China's own superstar technology stocks, brought into sharper focus after Tencent Holdings reported its first profit drop in almost 13 years on Wednesday last week, has increased worries about Wall Street dependence on a handful top-shelf growth companies.

Shares of Tencent, China's largest social media and gaming company, have fallen over 6 percent in the past two days and are down by nearly a third from their record high close in January.

"Tencent is a good proxy for global growth and risk. Nowadays, with everything being so momentum driven in the market, if one thing goes, everything can go," said John Preston, senior advisor with Harding and Company.

Also, unnerving tech investors: Netflix and Facebook, which along with Amazon and Google-parent Alphabet make up the FANG stocks, have fallen sharply since their June-quarter reports.

With Netflix down 22 percent from its record high close in early July, and Facebook down 19 percent since July 25 due to fallout from privacy scandals, some investors are questioning whether "FANG" may be turning into "AG". Even with those worries, investors continue to make the group a centerpiece of their portfolios.
Amazon has surged over 60 percent in 2018 and on Tuesday closed at a record high. Alphabet is up 17 percent year to date.

"FANG stocks will continue to play a huge role over the next two to three years," said John Preston. "They're expensive, but you have to hold your nose and buy them."

The S&P 500 in recent days has struggled just short of its January record high and is up 6 percent year to date.

Even after recovering from a steep sell-off in February, the S&P 500 is trading at a relatively inexpensive 16.5 times expected earnings, compared to 18.6 times earnings in January, according to Thomson Reuters data.

The S&P 500 technology index is trading at 18.7 times earnings, compared to its high-point of 19.6 in late January.

The FANG stocks, plus Apple and Chinese stocks Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent, in August were the most crowded trade on Wall Street for the seventh straight month, according to survey of fund managers. In crowded trades, most investors share the same opinion, increasing the potential for a volatile sell-off if sentiment changes.

“We have seen a significant draw towards the China heavyweights this year and despite the geopolitical issues between China and the US over the recent months, we still believe that there is value in these companies.” “Alibaba releases its earnings this week and we expect the stock to react very positively.” – John Preston.
Shares of U.S.-listed Chinese technology companies in recent years have been caught up Wall Street's tech rally, but changes in their prices can also reflect the outlook for China's economy and government regulation.

Facing possible losses on China tech trades, global investment funds that own those stocks may be tempted to sell some of their U.S. tech stocks to lock in profits.

Amazon recently traded at 87 times expected earnings, its lowest in over a year. But many investors focus on the Internet retailer and cloud infrastructure company's explosive revenue growth. By that measure, Amazon appears expensive, at 3.5 times expected revenue, its highest level ever.

Knight Investment Limited –Alibaba Due to Report Earnings on Wednesday

Knight Investment – Alibaba Earnings Report on Wednesday

Knight Investment believes Alibaba is still the best value top level Chinese stock available on the US markets.

HONG KONG, HONG KONG, HONG KONG, August 20, 2018 / — Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. dominates online shopping in China, but the company has bigger plans in mind.

The Chinese e-commerce giant is investing aggressively as it tries to profit from more aspects of the retail experience, including food delivery and physical stores. These are part of Alibaba’s “new retail” initiatives, which are meant to merge online and offline commerce.

“We think Alibaba is years ahead of any competitor in driving digital commerce forward,” Knight Investment senior advisor James Warner, who rates the stock a buy with a $250 target price, wrote earlier this summer. “Of greater consequence is Alibaba’s foray into digitizing offline commerce (new retail), which we think is even further ahead and has potential to multiply Alibaba’s addressable market.”

Alibaba’s investments have weighed on recent results, and the question is whether investors will show patience going forward as the company plays the long game. The company is due to report results Thursday before the market opens, and management will likely provide some commentary on investment spending and progress.

If last quarter’s results and subsequent stock performance are any indication, Wall Street seems willing to settle for less on the profit front in the near term if it means bigger opportunities a few years out.
“We remain comfortable with the lower long-term margin profile as it will allow the company to generate a higher level of absolute profit over the long term and should lead to increased efficiencies across Alibaba’s entire ecosystem,” Warner commented.

When the earnings report hits, look for information about Alibaba’s recently announced partnership with Starbucks Inc. that is meant to bolster its Hema supermarkets as well as the consolidation of, a food-delivery startup that the company recently acquired. Consolidation ended up happening later than analysts were expecting.

Tariff concerns have pressured Alibaba shares in recent months, and analysts will likely use Alibaba’s earnings call to ask executives about the impact of trade tensions’ impact on the company’s performance and overall e-commerce spending in China.

“Despite the Chinese government’s efforts to boost lending over the past month, it appears U.S. tariffs are having a larger impact on the retail landscape than we had previously anticipated,” Warner said. He’s upbeat about Alibaba over the long term but warns of “near-term volatility as trade-related headwinds and negative sentiment persist.”

Alibaba’s cloud business is another important issue for investors and analysts, and the company has made some recent moves in this space. Autonomic Partners, a company owned by Ford Motor Co. , recently announced a partnership with Alibaba Cloud that centers on connected cars. Executives might be pressed to discuss this further during Alibaba’s earnings call.

Knight Investment believes Alibaba is still the best value top level Chinese stock available on the US markets.

Knight Bridge Investment Consultants Limited – Alibaba Reports Later This Week – What to Look For

BABA 2yr Chart – Solid Growth Amongst its Peers

Alibaba's report arrives on the morning of Aug. 23, and an earnings call will be held at 7:30 a.m. ET. Here are some things for investors to keep an eye on.

HONG KONG, HONG KONG, HONG KONG, August 20, 2018 / — After soaring from early 2016 to mid-2017, Alibaba's shares have mostly tread water over the past 12 months amid spending and macro worries. A sharp pullback and tepid second quarter results from rival Tencent hasn't helped sentiment around Alibaba.

That might set the Chinese e-commerce giant up well to rally following its June quarter (fiscal first quarter) report, should the report show that Alibaba's top-line momentum remains strong going into the back half of 2018. The consensus among analysts polled by FactSet is for June quarter revenue of RMB81.39 billion (up 65% annually and equal to $11.8 billion) and non-GAAP EPS of RMB8.28 ($1.20).

Jack Ma's company also provides full-year revenue growth guidance in its reports. In May, the company guided for revenue to officially grow over 60% on an RMB basis in fiscal 2019 (ends in March 2019), and over 50% if one excludes the impact of deals to take a majority stake in logistics firm Cainiao and full ownership of food delivery/local services firm

Alibaba's report arrives on the morning of Aug. 23, and an earnings call will be held at 7:30 a.m. ET. Knight Bridge earmarks some things for investors to keep an eye on.

#1. Taobao/Tmall Revenue Growth

While Alibaba's revenue growth doesn't depend on its giant Taobao and Tmall marketplaces to the same degree that it once did, Taobao and Tmall still accounted for 55% of its March quarter revenue and the lion's share of its gross profit.

"Customer management" revenue for Alibaba's China Commerce Retail segment, which is driven by ads shown on Taobao and Tmall, rose 35% last quarter to RMB17.1 billion. And the segment's commission revenue, which is driven by Tmall, rose 39% to RMB8.2 billion. Helping out: A still-growing shopper base, higher spending per shopper and higher monetization rates for Taobao/Tmall transactions.

#2. The Top and Bottom-Line Impact of Offline Retail and Logistics

Thanks to both acquisitions and organic investments, the "Others" reporting line for Alibaba's China Commerce Retail segment rose more than 10-fold annually in the June quarter to RMB5.8 billion. Among other things, this line covers Alibaba's offline stores, such as its Intime department stores and innovative Hema supermarkets, as well as (set to be merged with Alibaba's Koubei local services JV) and its Tmall Direct Import online store.

Alibaba also reported RMB2.9 billion in revenue for Cainiao. These businesses are contributing strongly to Alibaba's revenue growth, but — both due to large investments and their business models — also weighing on its margins. In the March quarter, offline retail and Cainiao investments contributed to Alibaba's cost of revenue equaling 53% of revenue, up from 40% a year earlier.

#3. Content and Cloud Services Growth

Alibaba's Cloud Computing revenue, which is driven by its AliCloud public cloud platform (#1 in China), saw revenue rise 103% to RMB4.4 billion. For the June quarter, the consensus is for Cloud Computing revenue to rise 95% to RMB4.7 billion.

Meanwhile, Alibaba's Digital Media & Entertainment revenue, which among other things covers its Youku Tudou online video unit and its popular UCWeb mobile browser, is expected to see revenue rise 37% to RMB5.5 billion. Both of these segments, which are also seeing large investments made in them, lost money during the March quarter.

#4. International Growth

Thanks in large part to the growth of its Lazada unit (a major e-commerce player in Southeast Asia), Alibaba's International Commerce is expected to grow 49% in the June quarter to RMB6.2 billion. During the March quarter, Alibaba's retail international revenue (this includes Lazada) rose 63% to RMB4 billion, and its wholesale international revenue rose 13% to RMB1.7 billion.

#5. The Impact of Macro Trends

After falling sharply relative to the Chinese renminbi in 2017, the dollar has done the opposite since April. That's set to have an impact on the dollar-based growth that Alibaba reports. Whereas Alibaba saw 61% RMB-based growth and 76% dollar-based growth in the March quarter, the consensus for the June quarter is for 65% RMB-based growth and 59% dollar-based growth.

A weaker renminbi also of course makes imports on Alibaba's Chinese marketplaces more expensive. Albeit while making Chinese exports on its international marketplaces cheaper.

Knight Bridge expects a positive earnings call on Wednesday, with possible profit taking over the next couple of days prior and a strong rally once the official data has been fully analysed.

SCH Advisors – Week Beginning 20th August – Greece Exits EU Bailout

Greece Avoids Exiting the European Union

Greece has successfully completed a three-year eurozone bailout programme designed to help it cope with the fallout from its debt crisis.

MANHATTAN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, August 20, 2018 / — SCH Advisors is a leading independent stock advisory firm that works with a variety of clients from institutional and corporate to retail and private investors. Our objective is to offer uncompromised advice, enabling our clients to make pertinent investment decisions. Specializing in sectors known for exceptional growth, SCH Advisors is here to guide, advise and execute your wealth management strategy.

Greece has successfully completed a three-year eurozone bailout programme designed to help it cope with the fallout from its debt crisis.

For the first time in eight years, Greece is now free to borrow money on the financial markets
The European Stability Mechanism (ESM) provided the country with €61.9bn (£55bn; $70.8bn) over the three years.

This supported the Greek government's efforts to reform the nation's troubled economy and recapitalise its banks.

Together with assistance from International Monetary Fund, the loans given to Greece since 2010 amounted to more than €260bn – the biggest bailout in global financial history.

As a condition of the loans, the Greek government was forced to introduce a series of unpopular austerity measures.

The Greek economy has grown slowly in recent years and is still 25% smaller than when the crisis began.

'Grexit avoided'

The ESM is a fund set up by the countries that use the euro currency to deal with a financial crisis.
It had made available another $27bn to Greece but said the country had not needed to call on it.

"Greece can stand on its own feet," said ESM chairman Mario Centeno.

He thanked the Greek people for their co-operation, and also said there would be "no more follow-up rescue programmes" for the first time since 2010.

However, Greece's freedom to manage its own economic affairs will be tempered by enhanced surveillance from the European Union's executive, the European Commission. This is designed to ensure Athens does not backtrack on reforms agreed with its lenders. Eventually, the bailout loans will have to be repaid.

Professor Kevin Featherstone, director of the Hellenic Observatory at the London School of Economics, said Greece had helped to safeguard the future of the eurozone by agreeing to the terms of the bailout programme.
"By enduring this period of austerity, we have avoided a Grexit [Greek exit from the European Union].

"It's certainly the case that the third bailout of 2015-imposed terms which were very, very demanding and very painful indeed.

"For a political system to have gone through these years of austerity, this depth of economic hardship, and maintained a functioning society, a functioning democracy, is testament to the robustness of Greece as a modern state. Greece has saved the euro."

Trinity Investments Limited – Bitcoin Looking to Bounce Back?

Bitcoin set to Bounce Back?

Trinity Investments looks at Bitcoins latest moves and what is likely to happen toward the end of the year.

HONG KONG, HONG KONG, HONG KONG, August 20, 2018 / — Trinity Investments Limited has been an advocate of Cryptocurrencies since Bitcoin first started to make investor headlines.

Bitcoin continues to “lick its wounds” after a devastating correction at the start of the previous week, pushing the total market cap up to $216 against lows at $189 billion, the lowest level since late October 2017. This recovery can barely be considered as strong despite the TOP-100 coins being mostly in the green zone, as their rates are significantly lower than they were before the correction.

Increased volatility rates and mining on the edge of profitability suppresses activity and provokes pressure for exchange rates.

The market critics often blame the second largest cryptocurrency Ethereum (ETH). The rapid growth in the number of ICOs, most of which were conducted on Ethereum basis, turned market participants against the cryptocurrency market. This puts the current successful projects in hurry to withdraw (or cash in) gathered coins due to unstable price.

Miners also aim to sell much of their coins, albeit inflow of the new investors is very limited now. The industry veterans try to wait out the losses or turn into long-term investors. From this point of view, the market is in a deep depression and we might be looking at a mass-scaled liquidation of both the investments and the mining capacities.

More short-term technical analysis, however, shows a slightly more optimistic picture. BTC successfully fought off bears’ attack and managed to stay above $6000. Cautious purchases have returned the benchmark cryptocurrency to $6500 mark and are causing its growth for the third day in a row. Despite the depressive market condition investors prefer to buy dip Bitcoin, and this is definitely a good sign. The growth in trade volumes in periods of strengthening also confirms positive mood among the market participants.

There is no doubt that Bitcoin has lost the momentum of last years meteoric rise. With the SEC delaying judgment and severalal governments still holding out on supporting the cryptocurrency, there is still significant upside to a crypto investment. To find out more, visit or email us at and we will happily get back to you.

SAN GABRIEL, CA, USA , August 20, 2018 / — As real estate markets stagnate across the United States, realtors, home buyers, and home sellers are each starting to feel the pinch. In the San Gabriel Valley, near Los Angeles, Rudy L. Kusuma Home Selling Team is bucking the downtrend with its Titanium Certified RBID homes process, and guaranteed house sales that net home sellers more money than other realtors in the area.

Los Angeles, California, United States of America – August 20th, 2018 – The Los Angeles real estate markets might be sagging, but Rudy L. Kusuma Home Selling Team is showing home buyers and sellers that the market is more buoyant than ever, selling homes in minutes at profits which are attracting interest across the city.

As Bloomberg Businessweek reveals a US housing market heading in decline and CNBC’s Realty Check segment notes that it costs home buyers some 59% of their annual income to purchase, the average Angelino could be forgiven for thinking that it's not just millennials who are beleaguered in their search for a home, sweet home.

While Rudy L. Kusuma Home Selling Team extensive catalog might not include “The Mountain,” the sprawling $1bn property that Fortune reports as Los Angeles’ most expensive real estate listing ever, it is helping home sellers to make a profitable sale, while home buyers and sellers alike enjoy a speedy transaction.

Titanium Certified RBID homes include several types of property from foreclosures and bank owned properties through to corporate homes, builder closeouts, and more. The certification also offers a 12-month homeowners’ warranty and a hassle-free bidding process, unique in an industry often fraught with unforeseen roadblocks.

Rudy L. Kusuma Home Selling Team dynamic and successful approach to real estate sales during a time when real estate markets are slumping in Los Angeles has seen it ranked as one of the fastest growing companies of 2017 in the United States by Inc. magazine.

“It’s no secret why we’re successful: we just make it easy. With over 25,000 buyers in our database looking for homes in Los Angeles, we’re able to help homeowners to sell in just 29 days on average – typically, the process takes 88 days. Not only is that three times faster, but we also average 3.1% more for home sellers upon purchase. For a $400,000 home, that’s $12,000 more in their pocket,” explained Rudy Lira Kusuma, CEO of Titanium Real Estate Network, Rudy L. Kusuma Home Selling Team.

“We also offer exposure across the United States and internationally, bringing you to new real estate marketplaces that others simply can’t. Due to all these factors, we sell over twenty times the amount of homes than the average realtor – who is struggling to generate interest in property listings – and we’re able to guarantee a home sale because if 25,000 people don’t want to buy your home, we will; nobody else in Los Angeles can say this!”

The realty business’ success comes from an approach that focuses on an active marketing campaign. Rather than rely on MLS listings and a trickle of individual open house visits, Rudy L. Kusuma Home Selling Team broadcasts properties to its 25,000-plus home buyer network.

Prospective home buyers then attend mass open days where an auction takes place, building demand until a final sale is made. The process can be seen in the video below, where the speedy Los Angeles real estate team sold a home in San Gabriel Valley. Over two hundred pre-qualified, pre-approved cash buyers attended the auction, which resulted in the home being sold in a remarkable sixty minutes with a profit of $100,000 extra for the home seller.

“Buying a first home can be an overwhelming experience, but Rudy helped a lot throughout the whole process. His knowledge is second to none, and he explained all the information that we needed prior to buying a house in Los Angeles,” said Lucas Chino, a client of Titanium Real Estate Network. “He makes the home buying process a breeze, and we are very satisfied with the service which he provided – thank you so much!”

Rudy L. Kusuma Home Selling Team has multiple homes for sale across Los Angeles County, Orange County, and San Gabriel Valley. For more information about the business, its exclusive RBID Home Selling system, and to view its property listings, please contact Rudy L. Kusuma at 626-789-0159
