  • Twitter Prepares for IPO Launch - 31 October 2013
  • As Twitter prepares to launch its initial public offering, analysts are comparing every move the company makes to Facebook's problem-plagued May 2012 IPO through Nasdaq. Twitter aims to raise $1.6 billion with its IPO, and analysts have predicted that when the company starts trading it may be worth between $12 billion and $20 billion. As of June 30, 2013, Twitter had 218.3 million active monthly users, reflecting an increase of 44 percent over the same period of last year. The company, which has been operating for seven years, has noted that as the size of its user base increases, user growth rate will slow down.

  • Reid-McConnell Act Averts Default - 17 October 2013
  • Stock markets rallied in response to an eleventh-hour agreement to end the partial US government shutdown, with the S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average and Nasdaq all closing up by more than one percent on Wednesday just prior to confirmation of the deal which will fund the US government until January 15, 2014, and extend the debt ceiling to February 7. The S&P 500 rose 23 points to 1,721, the Dow Jones climbed by 206 points to close at 15,374 and the Nasdaq rose 45 points to 3,839 on Wednesday amid an upbeat mood on Wall Street.

  • Talk of US Debt Default Unsettles Markets - 7 October 2013
  • Global markets continue to be affected by the grim possibility that the US government's partial shutdown could result in the world’s largest economy defaulting on its debt. Japan's Nikkei index dropped by more than 1 percent to 13,853.32 on Monday, with the Hang Seng index of Hong Kong falling 0.7 percent to 22,973.95 and India’s BSE 30 losing 0.5 percent to close at 19,808.71. Markets were closed for a public holiday on mainland China. Following Friday's modest gains, markets slumped ahead of the opening bell on Wall Street on Monday. The Dow Jones industrial average index futures dropped 0.8 percent, with the Nasdaq index futures falling 0.9 percent and Standard & Poor's 500 index futures slumping 1 percent. As the impasse between Republicans and the White House continues, investor anxiety has risen. The news that there would not be a vote on a straightforward bill to grant the government borrowing authority before the October 17 deadline has shaken markets as is evident in major indexes.
