  • UK analyst recommendations lag behind wider market - Feb 9, 2017
    By Financial Times

    The future of “sellside” analysis,or that produced by investment banks and brokerages is in question with the spending on global investment research set to shrink drastically, according to the BCA, an independent research group.

  • Eurozone economy quietly outshines the US - Feb 6, 2017
    By Financial Times

    Dhaval Joshi of BCA Research argues that growth in credit has partly fuelled the surprising improvement — and that since the credit growth began to slow towards the end of last year, the “[Eurozone] economy’s latest ‘mini-upswing’ is likely approaching its end.”

  • The Fragile Economic Foundation of Dow 20000 - Jan 25, 2017
    By Wall Street Journal

    It isn’t that rising trade barriers will cause a recession. There is little historical precedent for that, notes Peter Berezin of the Bank Credit Analyst, an investment research service, in a recent report. (Historians now agree the Smoot-Hawley tariff of 1930 was only a minor contribution to the Depression.) If companies repatriate production from abroad, that could temporarily boost investment and jobs. The real problem, he says, is that protectionism means foreign products aren’t as readily available to satisfy strong spending at home, which leads to inflation pressure and higher interest rates. It also corrodes international cooperation and destabilizes geopolitical relations.

That’s because machines find it hard to replicate the movements of humans in everyday tasks. “The hard problems that are easy for AI are those that require the application of complex algorithms and pattern recognition to large quantities of data – such as beating a grandmaster at chess”, says Joshi. “Or a job such as calculating a credit score or insurance premium, translating a report from English to Mandarin Chinese, or managing a stock portfolio.”
