Porsche’s supercharged market debut Shares in Porsche rose in their trading debut this morning, after the sports car maker priced its initial public offering at the top end of its expected range last night. The long-awaited offering was an increasingly rare bright spot for I.P.O.s, but it may not be enough to revive the moribund market on its own. Porsche’s stock opened at 84 euros, up nearly 2 percent over its I.P.O. price. (Fun fact: The company’s stock ticker, P911, and overall share count of 911 million are nods to its iconic 911 model.) Underwriters had expected strong demand for some time: The deal’s order book was oversubscribed within hours of being opened last week, DealBook has learned. Investors clamored for a piece of the I.P.O., with some going so far as to send pictures with their 911s to prove their Porsche fandom. Among the points that Porsche emphasized during its I.P.O. roadshow were its healthy operating profit margins of 20 percent and the success of its … [Read more...] about Porsche Takes off in Trading Debut
'Multiple' Tory MPs are said to be in talks with Labour to bring down the PM's bombshell mini-budget after it sent the UK market into chaos. Parliamentary sources confirmed that the alliance will put special pressure on the government to reverse the abolition of the 45p top rate of tax, LBC reported. Although the government has a significant majority, it would only take around 35 Conservative MPs to put any legislative proposals at risk. Tory MP Steve Double said today that the current economic crisis is the 'most difficult time' so far in his seven years in Parliament. Whilst the government will try and ensure that some elements of their plan don't go to a parliamentary vote, it will not be possible for everything if there is a large enough proportion arguing it. Budget measures are not usually subject to rebellion and are traditionally considered issues of confidence - but after the market meltdown, it is not wholly surprising that rebels are coming forward. If voted … [Read more...] about ‘Multiple rebel Tory MPs are in talks with Labour’ to bring down Liz Truss’s bombshell mini-budget
It is a horrible time for stocks, which have spent the year in a bear market . But guess what? When you look at the historical record, bonds are worse. This year is the most devastating period for bonds since at least 1926, the numbers show. And, in the estimation of one bond maven, 2022 is shaping up to be the worst year for bonds since reliable record-keeping began in the late 18th century. Yet as bad as things are now, history and basic fixed-income math tell us that bond investors will begin to experience relief when interest rates stop rising. You can count on that eventually, though we don’t know when it will happen. Much as truly long-term investors are likely to be better off if they can ignore the turmoil in the stock market and just hang onto well-diversified holdings in low-cost index funds, most bond investors can expect to benefit if they can ride out this upheaval and hold onto their bonds, whether owned individually or in diversified funds.

LONDON — Prime Minister Liz Truss of Britain campaigned as a tax cutter and champion of supply-side economics, and she won the race to replace her scandal-scarred predecessor, Boris Johnson. Now she has delivered that free-market agenda, and it may sink her government. Four days after Ms. Truss’s tax cuts and deregulatory plans stunned financial markets and threw the British pound into a tailspin, the prime minister’s political future looks increasingly precarious as well. Her Conservative Party is gripped by anxiety, with a new poll showing that the opposition Labour Party has taken a 17 percentage point lead over the Tories. It’s a treacherous place for a prime minister in only her third week on the job. Labour is seizing the moment to present itself as the party of fiscal responsibility. With some experts predicting the pound could tumble to parity with the dollar, economists and political analysts said the uncertainty over Britain’s economic path would continue to hang … [Read more...] about Truss Takes a Bold Economic Gamble.
