U.S. equities ended a five-day winning streak on Tuesday as mega-cap technology stocks including Apple Inc. and Microsoft Corp. tumbled ahead of their earnings reports. The tech-heavy Nasdaq (-1.21%, -180.14) posted its biggest drop in more than two months as all three of the major American equity indexes fell from all-time highs. The Hang Seng Index (-4.22%, −1,105.89) sank the most since May 2020 as speculation swirled that U.S. funds are offloading China and Hong Kong assets. Amid the dismal sentiments, Dow Jones slightly dropped 0.24%, or 85.79.

As Apple’s third-quarter results released and the conference call just ended, we offer you 5 key takeaways from Bloomberg Top Live Blogs:

  • Apple shattered revenue expectations, topping $81 billion for an all-time Q3 and growing 36% year-over-year. The iPhone generated nearly $40 billion, while Services topped $17 billion to a record.
  • Apple said that while Q4 (current quarter) sales will grow strong double digits, the growth rate will slow from Q3. Apple cited Services revenue slowing as one of the main reasons for the slowed overall growth. Services grew 33% in Q3, which won’t happen in Q4, Apple said.
  • Apple also said that the iPhone and iPad are seeing supply constraints in the current quarter, and Apple CEO Tim Cook said that the company is paying too much for freight. He added Apple is taking on the supply chain issues one quarter at a time.
  • Asked about the iPhone, Cook said Apple feels “really good” about the future of the product and that the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max saw a particularly strong response in China. Apple said that it also saw strong growth in India, Latin America, and Vietnam.
  • Cook explained that Apple is experiencing shortages, like other companies, of so-called legacy-node semiconductors. That means fewer high-tech chips like power and data converters. He said it’s not so much on ‘leading edge’ which would imply they’re getting enough of the M1 and other processors that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. makes for them.

Main Pairs Movement

The dollar dropped, despite a generalized dismal mood. Global stocks edged lower, while demand for government bonds increased, pushing yields lower. Market players were cautious ahead of the US Federal Reserve decision on monetary policy.

US data was mixed. Durable Goods Orders were up 0.8% MoM in June, much worse than the 2.1% expected. The core reading, Nondefense Capital Goods Orders ex Aircraft, surged 0.5%, also missing expectations. On a positive note, CB Consumer Confidence improved to 129.1 from an upwardly revised 128.9 in June.

Commodity-linked currencies were the worst performers, losing grounds despite the weakened greenback. Safe haven yen were sharply appreciated, while CHF gained a little bit.

Traders are gearing up for a busy week of corporate earnings results from the mega-cap technology stocks this week, including Apple (AAPL), Microsoft (MSFT), Amazon (AMZN), Facebook (FB), and Alphabet (GOOGL). This will come alongside a slew of economic data reports and a monetary policy decision from the Federal Reserve. As a reminder, Dow Jones rose 0.58%, or 238.20, and Nasdaq closed green (+1.04%, or 152.39) last Friday.

China unveiled a sweeping overhaul of its $100 billion education tech sector, banning companies that teach the school curriculum from making profits, raising capital, or going public.

Beijing on Saturday published a plethora of regulations that together threaten to up-end the sector and jeopardize billions of dollars in foreign investment. Companies that teach school subjects can no longer accept overseas investment, which could include capital from the offshore registered entities of Chinese firms, according to a notice released by the State Council. Those now in violation of that rule must take steps to rectify the situation, the country’s most powerful administrative authority said, without elaborating.

In addition, listed firms will no longer be allowed to raise capital via stock markets to invest in businesses that teach classroom subjects. Outright acquisitions are forbidden. And all vacation and weekend tutoring related to the school syllabus is now off-limits.

The regulations threaten to obliterate the outsized growth that made stock market darlings of TAL Education Group, New Oriental Education & Technology Group, and Gaotu Techedu Inc. They could also put the market largely out of reach of global investors. Education technology had emerged as one of the hottest investment plays in China in recent years, attracting billions from the likes of Tiger Global Management, Temasek Holdings Pte, and SoftBank Group Corp.

Main Pairs Movement

The dollar retained its strength heading into the weekly close but was unable to extend gains. Appetite for high-yielding assets dented demand for the greenback as US indexes closed at all-time highs. Government bond yields maintained the positive tone, and settled near the upper end of their weekly range, also reflecting a better market mood.

Data released on Friday indicated that the economic recovery continued at an uneven pace in July. Markit published the flash July PMIs. European indexes were mostly upbeat, while in the US and the UK the services sector contracted.

Majors remained range-bound at the end of the week, consolidating losses against their American rival, as the US Federal Reserve looms. Choppy trading will likely prevail ahead of Wednesday when the central bank will announce its decision on monetary policy. The focus is on tapering. The central bank will likely hint at some action for the last quarter of the year.

Gold finished the week with modest losses just above the $1,800 mark. Crude oil prices posted a nice comeback by the end of the week, with WTI settling at $72.15 a barrel, and Brent trading at $74.20.
