Berita heboh ttg apa nih pak tenkai hehe
Bisa dioper ke gigi 3 nga nih? hehe U.S. Stocks Rise for 2nd Day as Bernanke Speaks; Deere Advances By Michael Patterson Feb. 14 (Bloomberg) – U.S. stocks rose for a second day, pushing the Dow Jones Industrial Average to a record, as Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke said inflation pressures are easing because of falling energy and commodity prices. Bernanke''s remarks allayed concern sparked by comments last week from Fed officials that highlighted rising prices and signaled borrowing costs may head higher. Results from Deere & Co. and Applied Materials Inc. that surpassed analysts'' estimates also aided the market''s advance. ``This is a very bullish statement and somewhat out of character because the Fed is usually more balanced,'''' said Timothy Ghriskey, who manages more than $1 billion at Solaris Asset Management LLC in Bedford Hills, New York. ``The Fed is decidedly on the sidelines and if they''re leaning any way, it''s towards lower and not higher interest rates.'''' Deere, the world''s biggest maker of farm equipment, climbed the most since August 2002 after its first-quarter net income unexpectedly rose. Applied Materials led semiconductor companies higher as the largest maker of chip-production equipment said orders will increase this quarter. The Dow average rose 66.02, or 0.5 percent, to 12,720.87 at 10:46 a.m. in New York. The measure last closed at a record 12,673.68 on Feb. 1. The S&P 500 added 9.17, or 0.6 percent, to 1453.43, its highest since September 2000. The Nasdaq Composite Index advanced 23.42, or 1 percent, to 2483.30. Stocks yesterday snapped a three-day decline and the Dow average had its biggest rally this year as takeover speculation boosted mining shares. `Diminish'' Declining energy and commodity prices are likely to reduce inflation, Bernanke said, though it will be a while before the Fed relaxes its guard. The Fed chief also said there are ``tentative signs'''' of stabilization in the housing market and consumers continue to be the ``mainstay'''' of economic growth. ``He gave a very solid report on the consumer and on inflation,'''' said Quincy Krosby, who helps manage $325 billion as chief investment strategist at The Hartford in Hartford, Connecticut. ``Short of coming out and saying `We want to give you a rate cut just for the sake of a rate cut,'' this is the best it could get.'''' Fed regional bank presidents William Poole, Sandra Pianalto and Richard Fisher last week said in separate speeches that inflation remains a concern and higher interest rates may be needed. After his testimony to the Senate Banking Committee today, Bernanke will address the House Financial Services Committee tomorrow. Retail Sales Earlier today, a government report showed retail sales stalled last month as cheaper gasoline limited service station receipts and dealerships sold fewer cars. Purchases excluding fuel and autos increased. January sales were unchanged after a 1.2 percent gain in December, the Commerce Department said. Sales excluding autos and gasoline rose 0.5 percent after increasing 1 percent in December. The slower growth indicates spending is falling in line with the Fed''s goal of achieving moderate economic growth that doesn''t cause inflation to accelerate. Deere surged $7.44, or 7.3 percent, to $110.11, a record. The company said first-quarter net income rose to $1.04 a share from 99 cents a year earlier as it tightened inventory and offered more new machines and services. Earnings beat the 81-cent average analyst estimate compiled by Bloomberg. Rival Agco Corp. increased $1.27 to $37.22. Applied Materials A measure of chip-related companies jumped 1.4 percent for the top advance among two dozen industry groups in the S&P 500. Applied Materials gained 31 cents to $18.50. Chief Executive Officer Mike Splinter said fiscal second-quarter orders will rise, helped by deals with makers of both dynamic random access memory, or DRAM, and flash memory. Analysts including Bill Ong at American Technology Research predicted a drop in orders of as much as 10 percent. Intel Corp., the world''s largest semiconductor maker, added 27 cents to $21.17. Advanced Micro Devices Inc., the second- biggest maker of personal-computer processors, rose 9 cents to $14.69. Companies posted a 9.7 percent gain in fourth-quarter profit through yesterday, with 78 percent of the S&P 500 members having announced results, according to data from Bloomberg. Earnings this quarter will probably rise 4.1 percent, according to analysts'' estimates. Average profits have climbed by at least 10 percent since the third quarter of 2002. First Solar First Solar Inc. surged $7.63 to $41.91. The maker of rooftop solar-power panels said fourth-quarter profit excluding some items was 11 cents a share. On that basis, analysts surveyed by Bloomberg had estimated a 4-cent loss, on average. Macrovision Corp. added $1.92 to $27.40. The maker of software to prevent copying of digital music and DVDs said fourth-quarter profit almost quadrupled to 31 cents a share and that the government ended a probe into the company''s stock-option grant practices. Analysts expected profit of 26 cents. DaimlerChrysler AG''s U.S. traded shares climbed $2.66 to $67.11. The German automaker may sell or seek partners for its unprofitable Chrysler division. The company said Chrysler will cut 13,000 jobs, or 16 percent of the workforce, after posting a 2006 operating loss of 1.12 billion euros ($1.46 billion).

U.S., Italian Ambassadors Hurt in Sri Lanka Artillery Attack By Anusha Ondaatjie Feb. 27 (Bloomberg) – The U.S. and Italian ambassadors to Sri Lanka were wounded in an artillery attack by suspected Tamil Tiger rebels, the Sri Lankan military said. Ambassadors Robert Blake and Prio Mariani were injured when mortar and artillery shells fired by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam struck an air force base at Batticaloa in eastern Sri Lanka at about 8:45 a.m. Sri Lankan time today, Flight Lieutenant Kanishka Rajapaksa, an air force spokesman, said. Blake has minor injuries, military spokesman Upali Rajapakse said. Mariani was taken to a hospital in Colombo. They were among diplomats accompanying Mahinda Samarasinghe, the human rights minister, on a visit to the region. A 2002 cease-fire between the government and the LTTE faltered last year as fighting erupted in the north and east of the country and two rounds of peace talks in Geneva failed to make progress.

Stocks Stage Comeback on Upbeat Data Thursday March 1, 2:39 pm ET By Madlen Read, AP Business Writer Stocks Stage Comeback on Upbeat Manufacturing Report, Indexes Turn Positive NEW YORK (AP) – A still skittish Wall Street staged a comeback Thursday, with the Dow Jones industrials erasing almost all of 209-point drop after an upbeat assessment of manufacturing activity eased some worries about a flagging U.S. economy. ADVERTISEMENT The blue chip index nudged into positive territory in midafternoon, then fluctuated in a narrow range. Several hours earlier, the broader Standard & Poor''s 500 index made its first foray into the plus column. Investors, relieved that manufacturing is still expanding, bought some of the stocks pummeled in Tuesday''s drop that sliced 416 points off the Dow. Fears about the U.S. economy contributed to that plunge, and a halfhearted rebound on Wednesday followed soothing words from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. The Institute for Supply Management''s index of February manufacturing activity came in at 52.3, stronger than the 50.0 reading analysts expected and up from 49.3 in January. The index is an important measure of a part of the economy that has given investors headaches in recent months. Manufacturing has suffered from the listless housing market and hard-up auto industry, and at times has given off signals that a recession might be in the offing. A reading at 50 and above indicates expansion, while anything below 50 signals contraction. The ISM data helped the market regain lost ground, but anxiety still plagued the Street, with the indexes bouncing around choppily as many investors bailed out of equities and fled to safe havens like Treasurys, fearing that stocks could see a bigger correction. "The aftermath of Tuesday''s major selloff will linger for the next couple of days. I don''t think we''re totally out of the woods yet," said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at New York-based brokerage house Avalon Partners Inc. In midafternoon trading, the Dow Jones industrial average was down 17.06, or 0.14 percent, at 12,251.57, after dropping as low as 12,056.54 in the first hour of trading. Broader stock indicators also dipped after briefly turning positive. The Standard & Poor''s 500 index was down 1.20, or 0.09 percent, at 1,405.62, and the technology-dominated Nasdaq composite index was off 5.05, or 0.21 percent, at 2,411.10. Stocks plunged early on Tuesday amid growing worries that the U.S. and Chinese economies are slowing, then recovered slightly on Wednesday as Bernanke predicted the U.S. economy would continue to grow moderately. The market appears to be in a pattern set during past big downturns, dropping sharply one day, regaining some ground the next and then resuming its slide or waffling as investors were unable to recoup their lost confidence in stocks. "The early morning hours raised the concern that we haven''t hit our bottom yet," said Jack Caffrey, equities strategist at J.P. Morgan Private Bank. "It''s probably going to be a grinding, sideways movement over the next few days as people realize there are risks out there." Bond prices rose as stocks fell, with the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note falling to 4.55 percent from 4.57 percent late Wednesday. Gold prices fell, while the dollar was higher against most major currencies, except for the Japanese yen. The dollar has been losing ground to the yen, as traders unwind so-called yen carry trades – borrowing the low-yielding yen to invest in the dollar, a technique that many market watchers say helped accelerate the U.S. market''s recent decline. The dollar traded at 117.62 yen by early afternoon on Thursday, down from Wednesday''s levels but higher from an earlier low of 116.94. U.S. investors began the day rattled by another series of declines in Asian and European markets. "It''s kind of the tail wagging the dog today. There''s no stability in Asian markets, and no stability in European markets. We''re trading the market as the rest of the globe is," said Arthur Hogan, chief market analyst at Jefferies & Co. Overseas, Japan''s Nikkei stock fell 0.86 percent, and the Shanghai Composite Index lost 2.9 percent. Britain''s FTSE 100 fell 0.90 percent, Germany''s DAX index tumbled 1.12 percent, and France''s CAC-40 dropped 1.12 percent. But the U.S. market began recovering by midmorning, as investors examined the U.S. economic reports released Thursday. "As far as data goes, there''s more good news than bad news," Hogan said. The Commerce Department said personal incomes rose in January at the fastest pace in a year, fueled in part by executive bonuses and pay hikes for federal workers. Personal incomes rose by 1 percent in January, the largest advance since January 2006, while consumer spending was up by 0.5 percent. A confident consumer willing to spend is a good sign for Wall Street that the economy won''t slow down too suddenly. The report also showed inflation excluding sometimes volatile energy and food prices rose 0.3 percent in January, the largest one-month gain since August. But the gauge that leaves in energy and food rose by only 0.2 percent, has moderated to 2 percent year-over-year – at the top of the Fed''s 1 percent to 2 percent target. "It''s slipped back into their comfort zone. It takes the Fed tightening question right off the table," Hogan said. Not all the economic snapshots Thursday were upbeat: Construction activity fell by 0.8 percent in January, double the decline that analysts had been expecting, and the Labor Department reported that the number of newly laid off workers filing claims for unemployment benefits rose by 7,000 last week to 338,000. Economists had been expecting a drop in claims. But taken together, the data over the past week still paints a picture of moderating economic growth and cooling inflation – technically, an ideal long-term situation for stocks. "The fear of recession is overblown. I don''t think we''re headed for recession in 2007," Cardillo said. Until the stock market stabilizes, though, every piece of data released will be gnawed on and digested by jumpy investors, meaning a single snippet of bad news could trigger another huge selloff. Declining issues narrowly outnumbered advancers on the New York Stock Exchange, where volume came to a heavy 1.55 billion shares. The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies was down 0.56, or 0.07 percent, at 792.74.
