What to expect from Apple’s ‘scary fast’ event

today 10/29/2023
Apple is preparing to hold its second product event of the season, following the release of its new iPhone 15 lineup. The event, which will be held online, is scheduled to begin at an unusually late start time of 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT. Some analysts speculate that the late start time suggests that this event may not feature major announcements from Apple. The event's tagline, "scary fast," hints at the unveiling of Apple's next-generation silicon chip, M3, as well as the Halloween season. It is expected that Apple will showcase new iMac computers powered by the M3 chip, which could boost Mac sales. Apple's transition away from Intel chips to its custom-made silicon chip, Apple Silicon, has gained attention in recent years. The performance of Apple Silicon has been praised for its processing power, thermal efficiency, and battery life. Apple computers currently hold about 8% global market share, with a 10% year-over-year growth in the second quarter of 2023. In 2020, Apple introduced its first in-house M1 silicon chipset, followed by the M2 chip in the MacBook line last year. This year, Apple is expected to introduce the M3 chip in a 24-inch iMac and potentially some MacBook Pro models. It is unclear if these new computers will be available before the holiday shopping season. The performance improvement of the M3 chip compared to its predecessor remains to be seen. Additionally, Apple may showcase new accessories as it transitions to a USB-C universal charging system. There are no rumors of a new iPad launch at this time. Apple's annual September event is typically its largest of the year, where it recently unveiled the iPhone 15 devices with various updates and features.

Japan'€™s Nikkei 225 surpasses all-time high reached in 1989

Pedestrians in Tokyo observed a surge in the value of shares on Japan's Nikkei 225 on February 22, 2024. The Nikkei 225 surpassed its all-time peak during trading, briefly reaching 39,029, exceeding the previous record set in 1989. The rally was driven by a rise in chip stocks, particularly after US chipmaker Nvidia reported strong earnings. The market had a successful year in 2023, with the Nikkei up 28%, and so far in 2024, the index has jumped 17%. The weak yen is a key factor in driving the stock market up, benefiting Japanese exporters and making shares cheaper for foreign investors. Demand for AI is also boosting the outlook for Japanese technology companies. To sustain the rally, Japan will need to deepen its corporate governance reforms to enhance shareholder returns.

China'€™s economic troubles are hurting global banks

One of the branches of HSBC in Hong Kong was pictured on February 19, 2024. HSBC reported a significant decline in quarterly profit due to a $3 billion hit on its stake in China's Bank of Communications and charges related to exposure to the country's troubled real estate industry. The bank's pretax profit dropped by 80% in the last three months of 2023 compared to the same period in 2022. The impairment of $3 billion was calculated after a December evaluation, which included an estimate of future cash flows at BoCom. Additionally, HSBC made provisions of $3.4 billion to cover expected credit losses and other charges related to its exposure to the commercial real estate sector in mainland China. Despite the challenges, the bank maintained a positive view on China's economy. Other European lenders have also been impacted by China's property woes.

Mortgage rates rise to 6.9% in third-straight increase

An aerial photo of a housing subdivision in Las Vegas, taken on Feb. 8, 2024, shows the layout of the neighborhood. Mortgage rates have increased for the third consecutive week, nearing 7%. The average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was 6.90% in the week ending February 22, up from 6.77% the previous week and 6.50% a year ago. Despite smaller fluctuations in rates over the past two months, recent indications from the Federal Reserve have led to higher mortgage rates. Strong economic and inflation data has influenced this trend, causing concern for homebuyers in already unaffordable markets. The potential impact of these rising rates on the housing market is being closely monitored.
