    U.S. stocks pause after five-day rally; dollar rebounds

    Wall Street ended little changed on Friday, taking a breather following a five-day winning streak, while the dollar rebounded against most currencies from earlier losses tied to expectations the U.S. central bank is in no hurry to raise interest rates. Earlier weakness in stocks and data showing a decline in U.S. consumer prices in December stoked investor appetite for Treasuries, pushing their yields lower. Earlier Friday, U.S. stocks retreated as investors booked profits and reset positions ahead of the earnings season.

    Hitachi Sees $2.8 Billion Hit on U.K. Nuclear Halt, Nikkei Says

    The company will book a loss of between 200 billion yen and 300 billion yen ($2.8 billion) after freezing assets of its British nuclear business and writing down their value, the Nikkei reported without attribution. Investors applauded signs the company may distance itself from the nuclear power industry -- which has been saddled by cost overruns, stiff competition from cheaper fuels and tougher regulations -- as well as the Brexit turmoil that has consumed the government of Prime Minister Theresa May. “What investors want is increased profit and a lot of synergy to be captured in the near to medium term, and not long-term projects that could escalate and blowout in terms of costs,” said Damian Thong, an analyst at Macquarie Group Ltd. in Tokyo.

    Stocks rise for fifth straight day as the Fed supports

    An index of world stock markets rose on Thursday as worries over the lack of clear signs of a resolution to the U.S.-China trade spat were offset by an assurance by Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell that the U.S. central bank has the ability to be patient on monetary policy. The dollar rebounded after hitting a three-month low, while U.S. Treasury debt prices erased early gains after a soft 30-year bond auction and as Powell said the U.S. central bank will "substantially" reduce the size of its balance sheet. MSCI's all-country index, which came under some pressure after U.S. stocks briefly retreated following Powell's comments on the Fed balance sheet, recovered to trade up 0.35 percent on the day.

    Speaking at the Economic Club in Washington, Mr. Powell said the economy is on solid footing and there are few signs a recession is imminent, but the Federal Reserve isn’t committed to a set course of rate increases, echoing a more market-friendly tone the central bank has taken since a punishing fourth-quarter selloff nearly upended the long-running bull market. The Fed is open to quickly altering its pace, especially with inflation remaining subdued, he said. “We are in a place where we can be patient and flexible and see what does evolve,” added Mr. Powell.

    Apple is reportedly cutting iPhone production by 10%

    Apple is cutting down its current production plans for new iPhones by about 10 percent for the next three months, the Nikkei Asian Review reported on Wednesday. The tech giant told its suppliers in December to produce fewer of the new iPhones than what was planned for the March quarter, the Nikkei said, citing sources with knowledge of Apple's request. Last week, Apple slashed its guidance on revenue, partly blaming the revision on a weakening economy in China and lower-than-expected iPhone revenue in the Greater China region.
