Das Fed-Statement im Wortlaut

Markus Fugmann



„Information received since the Federal Open Market Committee met in September suggests that economic activity is expanding at a moderate pace. Labor market conditions improved somewhat further, with solid job gains and a lower unemployment rate. On balance, a range of labor market indicators suggests that underutilization of labor resources is gradually diminishing. Household spending is rising moderately and business fixed investment is advancing, while the recovery in the housing sector remains slow. Inflation has continued to run below the Committee’s longer-run objective. Market-based measures of inflation compensation have declined somewhat; survey-based measures of longer-term inflation expectations have remained stable.

Consistent with its statutory mandate, the Committee seeks to foster maximum employment and price stability. The Committee expects that, with appropriate policy accommodation, economic activity will expand at a moderate pace, with labor market indicators and inflation moving toward levels the Committee judges consistent with its dual mandate. The Committee sees the risks to the outlook for economic activity and the labor market as nearly balanced. Although inflation in the near term will likely be held down by lower energy prices and other factors, the Committee judges that the likelihood of inflation running persistently below 2 percent has diminished somewhat since early this year.

The Committee judges that there has been a substantial improvement in the outlook for the labor market since the inception of its current asset purchase program. Moreover, the Committee continues to see sufficient underlying strength in the broader economy to support ongoing progress toward maximum employment in a context of price stability. Accordingly, the Committee decided to conclude its asset purchase program this month. The Committee is maintaining its existing policy of reinvesting principal payments from its holdings of agency debt and agency mortgage-backed securities in agency mortgage-backed securities and of rolling over maturing Treasury securities at auction. This policy, by keeping the Committee’s holdings of longer-term securities at sizable levels, should help maintain accommodative financial conditions.

To support continued progress toward maximum employment and price stability, the Committee today reaffirmed its view that the current 0 to 1/4 percent target range for the federal funds rate remains appropriate. In determining how long to maintain this target range, the Committee will assess progress–both realized and expected–toward its objectives of maximum employment and 2 percent inflation. This assessment will take into account a wide range of information, including measures of labor market conditions, indicators of inflation pressures and inflation expectations, and readings on financial developments. The Committee anticipates, based on its current assessment, that it likely will be appropriate to maintain the 0 to 1/4 percent target range for the federal funds rate for a considerable time following the end of its asset purchase program this month, especially if projected inflation continues to run below the Committee’s 2 percent longer-run goal, and provided that longer-term inflation expectations remain well anchored. However, if incoming information indicates faster progress toward the Committee’s employment and inflation objectives than the Committee now expects, then increases in the target range for the federal funds rate are likely to occur sooner than currently anticipated. Conversely, if progress proves slower than expected, then increases in the target range are likely to occur later than currently anticipated.

When the Committee decides to begin to remove policy accommodation, it will take a balanced approach consistent with its longer-run goals of maximum employment and inflation of 2 percent. The Committee currently anticipates that, even after employment and inflation are near mandate-consistent levels, economic conditions may, for some time, warrant keeping the target federal funds rate below levels the Committee views as normal in the longer run.

Voting for the FOMC monetary policy action were: Janet L. Yellen, Chair; William C. Dudley, Vice Chairman; Lael Brainard; Stanley Fischer; Richard W. Fisher; Loretta J. Mester; Charles I. Plosser; Jerome H. Powell; and Daniel K. Tarullo. Voting against the action was Narayana Kocherlakota, who believed that, in light of continued sluggishness in the inflation outlook and the recent slide in market-based measures of longer-term inflation expectations, the Committee should commit to keeping the current target range for the federal funds rate at least until the one-to-two-year ahead inflation outlook has returned to 2 percent and should continue the asset purchase program at its current level.“

Apple-Quartalszahlen: iPhone-Verkäufe sehr schwach, andere Bereiche retten

Claudio Kummerfeld



Ein Apple Mac Book

Die Apple-Quartalszahlen wurden soeben veröffentlicht. Hier die wichtigsten Kennzahlen.

Der Umsatz liegt bei 64,7 Milliarden Dollar (Vorjahresquartal 64,04/erwartet 63,7).

Der Gewinn liegt bei 0,73 Dollar pro Aktie (Vorjahresquartal 3,03, nach Aktiensplit umgerechnet 0,76 Dollar/für heute erwartet 0,70).

Der Umsatz im Services-Bereich klettert im Jahresvergleich kräftig von 12,5 auf 14,5 Milliarden Dollar (14 erwartet).

Die Aktie notiert nachbörslich mit -4,6 Prozent.

Die iPhone-Verkäufe im letztem Quartal liegen bei  26,4 Milliarden Dollar (Vorjahresquartal 33,3/für heute 27,9 erwartet). Alle anderen Teilbereiche bei Apple wachsen aber spürbar, und können die deutlich sinkenden Umsätze im Kernprodukt auffangen.

Der Umsatz in China ist von 11,1 auf 7,9 Milliarden Dollar gesunken. Europa legt zu von 14,9 auf 16,9 Milliarden Dollar. Nordamerika wächst von 29,3 auf 30,7 Milliarden Dollar.

Keine Aussicht für das aktuell laufende Quartal.

Apple in der Headline-Aussage:

“Apple capped off a fiscal year defined by innovation in the face of adversity with a September quarter record, led by all-time records for Mac and Services,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “Despite the ongoing impacts of COVID-19, Apple is in the midst of our most prolific product introduction period ever, and the early response to all our new products, led by our first 5G-enabled iPhone lineup, has been tremendously positive. From remote learning to the home office, Apple products have been a window to the world for users as the pandemic continues, and our teams have met the needs of this moment with creativity, passion, and the kinds of big ideas that only Apple can deliver.”

“Our outstanding September quarter performance concludes a remarkable fiscal year, where we established new all-time records for revenue, earnings per share, and free cash flow, in spite of an extremely volatile and challenging macro environment,” said Luca Maestri, Apple’s CFO. “Our sales results and the unmatched loyalty of our customers drove our active installed base of devices to an all-time high in all of our major product categories. We also returned nearly $22 billion to shareholders during the quarter, as we maintain our target of reaching a net cash neutral position over time.”

Facebook Quartalszahlen stark – Aktie dennoch schwächer: „Unsicherheiten“

Markus Fugmann



Die Facebook-Quartalszahlen wurden soeben veröffentlicht. Hier die wichtigsten Kennzahlen (die Erwarungen im Vorfeld sind durch die starken Zahlen von Snap zuletzt gestiegen, hier Analysten-Prognosen):

Der Umsatz liegt bei 21,47 Milliarden Dollar (Prognose war 19,8 Milliarden). Der Umsatz liegt also deutlich über den Erwartungen.

Der Gewinn liegt bei 2,71 Dollar pro Aktie (Prognose für heute 1,91, Flüsterschätzung bei 2,03 Dollar). Damit übertrifft Facebook die Analysteneinschätzungen bei weitem.

Die Zahl der täglich aktiven Nutzer (DAU) liegt bei 1,82 Milliarden (Prognose war 1,79 Milliarden).

Die operative Marge liegt bei 37% .

Interessant: der effektive Steuersatz bei Facebook liegt bei 4% (!) – kein Wunder, dass der Gewin pro Aktie stiegt

Die Aktie notiert nachbörslich mit -2,0%, weil Facebook von „Unsicherheiten“ für den weiteren Ausblick spricht:

Looking ahead to 2021, we continue to face a significant amount of uncertainty.

We believe the pandemic has contributed to an acceleration in the shift of commerce from offline to online, and we experienced increasing demand for advertising as a result of this acceleration. Considering that online commerce is our largest ad vertical, a change in this trend could serve as a headwind to our 2021 ad revenue growth.

In addition, we expect more significant targeting and measurement headwinds in 2021. This includes headwinds from platform changes, notably on Apple iOS 14, as well as those from the evolving regulatory landscape.“

Das Headline-Statement von Facebook:

„We had a strong quarter as people and businesses continue to rely on our services to stay connected and create economic opportunity during these tough times,“ said Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder and CEO. „We continue to make significant investments in our products and hiring in order to deliver new and meaningful experiences for our community around the world.“
