Many financial analysts have rushed to describe the current global stock market turmoil as a historic event, unprecedented, a bloodbath, however its evolution has so far been quite traditional. The correction, if that’s what this is, has been building since 2011/12 when many analysts began to question the numbers attached to Chinese growth, peaking earlier this year when markets reached new optimism, April marked historic highs for global indices. And while markets around the globe rally to retake losses, China remains the question on everyone’s lips.
Globally this current selloff started as a repricing of growth outlooks, in the main based on believable or unbelievable numbers out of China over the past 5 years, mounting evidence of economic weakness in the worlds second largest economy, coupled with persistent low growth in Europe and Japan, made it hard for markets to ignore the impact on earnings and profitability of what looked suspiciously like a global slowdown :: Read the full article »»»»

Twitter told shareholders it lost $US511 million/$AU573 million in the last three months of last year, that’s despite a doubling of revenue from 12 months ago to a better-than-expected $US243 million/$AU273 Million.
Financials aren’t the only woes the micro-blog are suffering, Twitter seems to be testing a new heavier design and it’s users haven’t been receptive of the changes. The new layout is reported to include a look described by many as a cross between Facebook and Google plus. Format changes in the past – including their most recent small change – have upset a bunch of users :: Read the full article »»»»

Microsoft’s outlandish chief executive Steve Ballmer has announced he’s got his heart set on retirement. The gregarious CEO reckons he’s pensioning himself off within the coming 12 months.
It is the opinion of this blogger that Microsoft, under Ballmer’s helmsman-ship has missed many obvious opportunities, leaving the once mighty company languishing in cyber-nomans land.

The tech-behemoth has faced a slurry of criticism for not keeping pace with this fast-evolving tech-sector, my personal criticism includes not eyeing-off it’s market correctly.
