Wall St drops but S&P, Nasdaq register quarterly gains

Tue 3:34pm   U.S. stocks fell on Tuesday as energy and healthcare shares retreated, but the S&P 500 and Nasdaq registered their ninth straight quarterly advance. The S&P's 500 quarterly winning streak was its longest since 1998, while the Nasdaq's was its longest ever. During the session, all 10 S&P 500 sectors declined, with healthcare leading the way down.

Euro posts record quarterly drop; Wall St ends day lower

Tue 2:12pm   Investors are betting that the U.S. Federal Reserve will raise interest rates this year, while the European Central Bank's one-trillion-euro economic stimulus program is weakening the euro. On Wall Street, energy shares were among the biggest drags, falling in tandem with a decline in crude oil prices, offsetting a lift from two days of corporate takeover announcements, including several biotech deals on Monday and Charter Communications' plan to buy Bright House Networks for roughly $10 billion.

Wall St. earnings estimates may not foretell currency impact

On Jan 7, before the dollar's biggest moves of the quarter, the company said currency issues would reduce its 2015 earnings by between 15 cents and 20 cents, similar to 2014, when the dollar rose 12.8 percent against a basket of major currencies. At Monsanto, for example, other factors such as an improving outlook for corn planting may help offset currency losses, said Paul Massoud, analyst at Stifel. “The rapid devaluation of nearly every foreign currency versus the U.S. dollar is not news, yet surprisingly only about 30 percent of the sell-side analysts who follow Red Hat have updated their models at current rates,” said Charles Peters, the CFO.

Wall St retreats but S&P, Nasdaq post quarterly gains

Tue 1:36pm   U.S. stocks ended down on Tuesday in a retreat from the previous session's sharp rally as energy shares declined and the dollar edged up, but the S&P 500 and Nasdaq registered their ninth straight quarterly rise. The S&P's 500 quarterly winning streak was its longest since 1998, while the Nasdaq's was its longest ever.

Here’s why more Wall Streeters are heading to Silicon Valley ...

Here’s why more Wall Streeters are heading to Silicon ValleyGetty Images/Chip Somodevilla Ruth Porat. Last week, Morgan Stanley’s chief Tue 9:17am   Getty Images/Chip Somodevilla Ruth Porat. Last week, Morgan Stanley’s chief financial officer of four years, Ruth Porat, announced she plans to join Google as its new CFO. She’s not the only one leaving Wall Street and heading to Silicon Valley. Goldman Sachs has lost several top people to West Coast tech companies over the past few years, including Anthony Noto and Sarah Friar. Noto took over as Twitter’s CFO, and Friar left for Salesforce and is now the CFO at Square.  It’s not just veterans who are making a change; more elite college graduates and MBAs are foregoing pinstripes and moving West. Only 10% of MIT undergraduates went into finance last year, according to a recent New York Times article — a startlingly drop from the 31% who took Wall Street jobs in 2006. “Software companies, meanwhile, hired 28% of graduates in 2014, compared with 10% in 2006,” it reports. Similarly, in 2014 San Francisco and the Bay Area drew slightly more Harvard Business School graduates than New York. Why are so many people headed to the Valley? “Young grads, as a general rule, are going to follow opportunity,” says Scott Rostan, who began his professional career with Merrill Lynch and now teaches investment banking and financial modeling courses at UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School. “If the opportunity for jobs are on Wall Street, they’re going to go that way. If they’re perceived to be in Silicon Valley technology companies, they’re going to go that way.” And while Wall Street may be known for its fat bonuses, tech companies are paying huge sums to attract top people. The Brookings Institution recently released a report showing the top 5% of earners in San Francisco far exceed the top incomes in other major US cities, making at least $423,000 a year. Beyond just economic opportunity, Wall Street may be leaking talent in the aftermath of the 2008 recession, Rostan says. “There still is a perception problem from the financial crisis that Wall Street is a more challenging environment. They still have that dark cloud, whereas a hot technology startup sounds awesome and exciting.“  Justin Sullivan/Getty Many Wall Streeters are trading in suits for hoodies. And for the older set who cut their teeth on Wall Street, Silicon Valley may offer the promise of a healthier lifestyle. Over the past 20 years, Rostan has observed that the Wall Street vets who switch careers are usually making “a lifestyle choice.”  “Wall Street right now is under a lot of regulatory scrutiny,” he says, “and there are a lot of pressures on them that are outside of their individual day-to-day control. Going to a high-profile technology company can be more liberating and freeing because you can then be creative instead of reactionary.”  Wall Street banks are notorious for their 100-hour weeks and grueling work experiences. While many Silicon Valley startups and established tech companies also require long hours, they maintain a reputation for innovation, creative freedom, and meaningful work.  In Google’s announcement that Porat would be joining the company, she said: “Growing up in Silicon Valley, during my time at Morgan Stanley, and as a member of Stanford’s Board, I’ve had the opportunity to experience firsthand how tech companies can help people in their daily lives. I can’t wait to roll up my sleeves and get started.” NOW WATCH: 14 things you didn’t know your iPhone headphones could do Please enable Javascript to watch this video Read more stories on Business Insider, Malaysian edition of the world’s fastest-growing business and technology news website.

Tue 7:23am   European shares fell on Tuesday, taking a breather from their sharp rally of the past three months triggered by the drop in the euro, with Germany's DAX index set to record its biggest first quarter gain since its creation in 1988. As the quarter draws to an end, the DAX is up 22 percent, while the FTSEurofirst 300 index of top European shares is up 16 percent, strongly outpacing Wall Street where the S&P 500 is up 0.8 percent since the start of the year. A survey of around 50 fund managers and strategists conducted in the past week predicted the pan-European STOXX Europe 600 index would rise more than 6 percent from current levels to 425 points by the end of 2015. "The question is whether being a late starter has left the ECB and Europe too far behind and too close to deflation.

Chuck Schumer: 15 Things You Didn’t Know

Chuck Schumer: 15 Things You Didn’t KnowWhen Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid surprised Washington last week with Tue 5:15am   When Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid surprised Washington last week with the announcement he would retire from the Senate in early 2017 and not seek reelection, one of the first people he told was New York Sen. Chuck Schumer. Reid almost immediately endorsed Schumer, 64, to replace him as key Senate Democratic leader. Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, the number-two Senate Democrat, said he wouldn’t stand in the way, and now Sen. Patty Murray, also mentioned as a potential Reid replacement, said she’ll support Schumer for the role. “Sen. Chuck Schumer has spent his entire career carrying water for Wall Street interests,” Becky Bond, political director for the liberal group CREDO Action, told The Los Angeles Times.
