Foxconn considering to rotate chief executives to nurture talent: Reuters

Apple supplier Foxconn is considering to implement a rotational chief executive system to nurture future talent, according to a Reuters report.

Citing people familiar with the matter, Reuters said “the plan was a response to repeated calls by investors to boost corporate governance by separating the role of chief executive from the chairperson.”

Young Liu has held both the current chairman and CEO roles since 2019 in the 50-year-old Taiwanese company. Liu took over from founder Terry Gou, who held both roles until his retirement in 2019

Yen weakens past 153 against the U.S. dollar before paring losses

The Japanese yen continued its slide against the U.S. dollar late Wednesday, crossing the 153 mark and hitting a high of 153.17.

At that level, this was the weakest the yen has been against the greenback since 1990. The currency later recovered to trade around 152.8

Early Thursday, Japan’s top currency diplomat Masato Kanda said that recent yen moves were “rapid,” and that authorities would not rule out any steps to deal with excessive exchange-rate swings, according to a Reuters report.

Attractive returns and the breadth of opportunities have historically been among the many reasons why the U.S. has reigned supreme among investors.

While the global superpower still has “some areas that look good” in terms of value, investment analyst Steven Glass at Pella Funds Management has his sights on opportunities in other geographies.

“There are still areas that look good value, but generally, it’s outside of the U.S.,” Glass, who is managing director at the investment house said, naming markets – and stocks – he is betting on right now.

Here’s what CIOs and markets strategists have to say about the CPI report:

A hotter-than-expected print on the consumer price index for March has led several investors to take a more bearish stance on the Federal Reserve’s rate-cutting timeline. Results from companies’ first-quarter earnings will be a key indication about the market’s direction after its strong rally over the past year, some investors and strategists said.

Take a look at what some of them had to say:

  • Seema Shah, chief global strategist at Principal Asset Management:“Today’s crucial CPI print has likely sealed the fate for the June FOMC meeting with a cut now very unlikely…even if inflation were to cool next month to a more comfortable reading, there is likely sufficient caution within the Fed now to mean that a July cut may also be a stretch, by which point the U.S. election will begin to intrude with Fed decision making.”
  • John Lynch, chief investment officer for Comerica Wealth Management:“Equity indexes are increasingly dependent on the upcoming earnings season, as companies must deliver to substantiate higher valuations. Any profit disappointment likely brings the possibility of a near-term correction in the 5-6% range for the S&P 500 Index.”
  • Sonu Varghese, global macro strategist at Carson Group: “This pushes out the timing of the first rate cut because labor markets and the economy are strong, and now there’s less urgency to cut.”
  • Rick Rieder, BlackRock’s chief investment officer of global fixed income:The world has clearly shifted to services, and particularly experiential, consumption…You can see that same dynamic in the amazing prices people are willing to pay to be at events, and/or together with other people, and consequently, we see in today’s data services inflation remaining sticky,” he said. “A key factor to understand here, is that many of these areas are not very interest rate sensitive, and thus the Fed has a very hard task in bringing down these price levels through the blunt tool of policy rates…it’s probable that cuts will be pushed off until late in the year, or beyond.”

CPI rises more than expected in March

A key U.S. inflation metric came in hotter than expected, raising concern that the Federal Reserve may not cut interest rates this year.

The consumer price index rose 0.4% in March from the prior month. Year over year, it gained 3.5%. Economists polled by Dow Jones expected a 0.3% gain month over month and a 3.4% increase year on year.

The March CPI increase was a reacceleration from February, when it gained 3.2%.

Core CPI, which strips out volatile food and energy prices, also rose more than expected last month.
