The news is still dominated by corporate earnings this morning, contrary to the rule that Fridays should be quieter than other days during the periods when figures are announced. About 150 companies with a stock market value of more than $5 billion are publishing their results today! US stock-index futures retreat, along with Asian and European shares.


US MARKETS:

S&P 500 futures down 0.2% to 2,922.00
Brent futures down 1.1% to $73.56/bbl
Gold spot up 0.4% to $1,282.33
US Dollar Index down 0.1% to 98.11

GLOBAL NEWS:

Earnings season. On today's agenda: AstraZeneca, Deutsche Bank, Safran, Air Liquide, Daimler, Electrolux, Amundi, Saab, Sanofi, Total, Exxon, Chevron, Colgate, Aon, Bank of China, NTT Docomo, BOC Hong Kong, and Sony.

Amazon aims for one day. While releasing its first-quarter earnings, Amazon said that it will shorten standard delivery for Prime members to one day from two. The move was welcomed by analysts, who consider it as a way to boost growth while beating competition.

IPO of Uber. Uber is due to announce today the terms of its initial public offering, which will take place between USD 44 and 50 per share, with a valuation of USD 80 to 90 billion. The Wall Street Journal reports that PayPal has planned to inject $500 million into the transaction.

Glencore under surveillance. Glencore is the subject of an investigation by the US Futures Regulator (CFTC) and the US Department of Justice into suspected corruption in Africa and Venezuela. This announcement caused the share price to fall by 3.8% yesterday in London.

See you on May 23 for the B737MAX. The United States Civil Aviation Authority (FAA) is convening a meeting with other global regulators on May 23 regarding Boeing's B737 MAX. The FAA invited the chief executive officers of civil aviation authorities around the world to discuss its actions to ensure the safe return to service of the Boeing 737 MAX. One of the objectives of this summit between regulators is to reassure on procedures within the American agency, shaken by recent revelations about malfunctions in certification.

A way for the Switch. Nintendo is working to bring the Switch into China with Tencent. China is still not very permissive in terms of video games, even if the original rigor is beginning to crack. The Japanese has never sold under its own brand in the country.

Renault wants to move forward. The French auto maker, which published its quarterly results today, reportedly asked Nissan to create a joint holding company, according to Nikkei, with an identical number of representatives. Renault reportedly made an initial offer that went further in terms of integration, but the Japanese reportedly rebuked it on April 12.

US earnings. Ford gets post-closing boom on Wall Street after the release of higher-than-expected quarterly figures. Amazon.com, Starbucks and Mattel performed well, Intel disappoints (-7% out of session). The publications of semiconductor players are quite difficult to identify, since Xilinx collapsed yesterday by 17% after disappointing accounts while Lam Research took 5% on solid figures.

In other news. The dispute between Elon Musk and the SEC over the Tesla tweets will take longer than expected to be resolved. S&P is increasingly concerned about the bankruptcy of Pier 1 Imports. Recticel's directors unanimously reject Kingspan's offer to acquire two of its divisions.
