John Cryan - Deutsche Bank

Our goal is to strengthen our position as a leading European bank with global reach, supported by our strong position in our home market, Germany. A solid capital base is essential if we are to succeed in our future strategy and capture growth opportunities for Deutsche Bank. Thanks to a stronger balance sheet, we have the ability to increase business. Prudent growth should be our byword going forward.feedback

Sundeep Gantori - UBS

By 2025, we think that the talent in India and China together will exceed what we'll have in the U.S. At the same time, the region generates a lot of data, which is very handy in AI.feedback

Carla Dearing

The point is to learn to be mindful of where your money is going. This allows you to prioritize and make targeted changes to your spending.feedback

Jamie Novak

It's tempting to run to the store when we need something. Instead, shop at home. There's a really good chance you already own what you need.feedback

Jonathan Murray - UBS

Credit cards can be the instrument of the devil because you're unaware of how much you're spending.feedback

Jonathan Murray - UBS

Cable companies are sneaky. They'll raise your rates without telling you.feedback

Andrea Woroch

Now that the weather is beginning to get warmer outside and the days are longer, you have more opportunity to work out outdoors before it gets too hot. Duct leaks, dirty filters and broken window seals all contribute to wasted energy and money.feedback

Jonathan Murray - UBS

Come armed with your goals for the year and make a professional argument about how you're exceeding them.feedback

Jonathan Murray - UBS

If you can pack your lunch at night and eat dinner at home, you can save hundreds a month.feedback

Chris McNally - Evercore ISI

Third parties have flagged that auto delinquencies are at or close to record levels. Similarly, outsiders have noted an uptick in credit losses. However, it needs to be recognized that delinquencies are high in absolute terms because lending is at an elevated level. Delinquency rates do not look concerning and, in fact, remain at very low levels.feedback

Joni Teves - UBS

Gold's failure to break convincingly beyond key psychological and technical levels for now is likely acting as a challenge to sentiment, especially considering how reflation hopes and U.S. fiscal optimism recently came under some pressure. Despite an underlying positive bias towards gold, the hesitation and lack of urgency to build positions at this point was evident in recent changes in Comex positioning.feedback

Andrew Brenner

Fed speakers are pretty much irrelevant right now.feedback

Art Cashin

They declare their divorce. It's something you want to be alert to. I think this was a turnaround Tuesday and we'll wait and see. The market wants it to look like [Washington] is getting something done. People are pushing for [Trump] to get off taxes and do infrastructure. It looks like everybody's got an opinion on taxes. I don't think he hurt. He was just in the chorus helping out.feedback

Andrew Brenner

Window dressing for our quarter end will probably happen more towards Thursday.feedback

Andrew Brenner

One, can they get the deficit approved so they don't have to shut down the government? And two, will they get a tax plan that will be meaningful? There's a lot of people that don't believe Trump can get it through. I'm not one of those people. If equities get sloppy, sell in May is not far away.feedback

Andrew Brenner

I'll be watching Brexit but I don't think it's going to have much effect. I think the negotiations will be going on for two years.feedback

Steven Milunovich

We also assume buybacks are on the aggressive side relative to the last few years.feedback

Wayne Gordon - UBS

In the short term, the French elections make a bit of a mess of the European story. So all of a sudden you get this Goldilocks scenarios for Europe where the data is better, the macro looks better, the risk has come off because you no longer have this challenge of a potential very important election in France. And so then that's when see really the euro-dollar getting some traction there.feedback

Wayne Gordon - UBS

Everyone's concerned about, well what if she gets elected? But if our base case transcends and we have anyone else but her elected…then the risk will come on for Europe.feedback

Liam Bailey - Knight Frank

In a European context, London is without doubt the dominant city for the wealthy. London is just more accessible for more wealthy people, it is more convenient, more connected and more open than other cities. London attracts talent from around the world, and it will continue to do so.feedback

Ryan Detrick - LPL Financial

We went 109 days without a 1 percent close lower on the S&P, which was the longest since 1995. When you have these long stretches without a 1 percent drop, the returns going out six to 12 months are actually very strong. It's kind of opposite of what you might think.feedback

Ryan Detrick - LPL Financial

We're still modestly off the all-time highs, and our general opinion is this could come in a couple more percent or so, but when you look at the economic backdrop, which is positive, it doesn't signal a major correction and it could signal a buying opportunity. Small caps continue to break down. That's obviously a warning sign. Crude and small caps are the two big ones. Both of these were cracking before today. Those are the harbingers we're watching. If those continue to weaken that could be a sign there's a little bit of a sign that more weakness could be coming into equity markets.feedback

Ari Wald - Oppenheimer Holdings

If you were to break below 2.3 percent, I would worry. I generally view that the direction is equally important as the level.feedback

Julian Emanuel - UBS

We've been saying that we expect a 5 to 10 percent correction. We've been saying that for weeks now. What happened was the market began to question whether it was a policy error … so for us there is unexplained softness in consumption that may or may not correct itself once the tax refunds get into peoples' hands, but there's no signs that's going to be the case.feedback

Julian Emanuel - UBS

It's pretty easy to see this as almost a risk reset. That's what we've been looking for and we think you are in the midst of it. To us the most important things going forward are two things: Can confidence figures be maintained where they are now, and will the public continue to be the incremental buyer? If either one of those degrades at all, that opens up the case for more downside.feedback

Gabriela Santos - JPMorgan Asset Management

Looking forward, the shift in tone is important but you also have to see the implementation of change.feedback

Gabriela Santos - JPMorgan Asset Management

There are very many different models and in Latin America specifically, Brazil is learning from the countries Mexico, Colombia and Chile.feedback

Alejo Czerwonko - UBS Wealth Management

As a result of many years of a wary attitude to trade, the comments you hear from Brazilian officials today have a different flavor, a more open flavor. The new rhetoric toward more trade openness in Brazil is important. You cannot really make a straight comparison between what happened in Brazil under the Brazilian Workers' Party and what could happen in the U.S. One of the reasons the Brazilian recession was so deep was this corruption scandal that erupted. It looks like the U.S. has a different level of institutional development that should prevent such widespread practices.feedback

Nitesh Shah

We expect gold to rise to US$1300/oz by mid-year (over 5% gain), before declining back to current levels by year-end. A dovish Fed will be met by inflation surprises over the coming quarter, which will lead to further decline in real interest rates. Although we agree with consensus that the Fed will deliver only two further rate hikes this year, Fed members may be forced to talk tougher in the second half of the year, which could tighten yields and lead to a stronger US dollar. For now a dovish Fed is likely to support gold.feedback

Henrique Meirelles

We had adopted during the last years some protectionist measures for some sectors of the economy and the net result was not positive. At the end of the day the products became more expensive and Brazil...became less competitive, In Brazil, we are moving towards a more open trade policy.feedback

Eric Sheridan - UBS

In our view, these fears place an undue emphasis on the role of advertising impression growth for core Facebook and ignore the key drivers of new ad products, better measurement/attribution tools & sustained levels of engagement across the Facebook ecosystem.feedback

Hakan Enver

Brexit has pushed institutions into two camps. On one side, we've got the 'business as usual' team, and, on the other, we have the institutions that are tired of the government's hemming and hawing and have already begun to move jobs to other EU countries. It's the latter group that's contributed to the quarter drop in jobs available. Large institutions…are currently using up incredible institutional resources to project years out and plan for a future that changes from one day to the next. For many, it's simply proving easier to get ahead of the worst-case scenario and get out of London now.feedback

Colin Langan - UBS

This is at the low end of the $1-2bn we expected and could imply another raise later if the Model 3 is delayed. If the launch is delayed (note the Model 3 beta prototype is not yet approved by the board), cash burn would be worse, putting them close to the $1bn cushion they need. Liquidity and cash burn remain key near-term risks, and investors may grow weary of continued raises as this is the second capital raise in a year.feedback

Alastair Newton

In short, although I think that we are seeing something of a pushback against populism in Europe today and that we should feel some relief at the Dutch outcome, populism is far from dead, including in the Netherlands, and we should treat the French election on its own merits.feedback

Art Cashin

Initially, futures looked like they were going to sell off and then they shot around and spiked higher, suggesting that the hesitation was tied to the lack of policy details in Trump's wide-ranging address. That left a feeling in some of the guys who were trading that some of the initial buying may have come out of Europe, and that they were perfectly willing, since the speech was much more presidential and somewhat conciliatory, to buy into that.feedback

Art Cashin

That's an interesting way to look at it, that if he didn't give you detail, that nobody can stand up and rail against it. And so the absence of opposition may encourage some people. It's a bit of a stretch, but I can understand it.feedback

Art Cashin

To get a positive reaction, you need the president to say just the right things, to give enough detail, hope and timing that the market picks up on it. Then you need Congress, both the Democrats and Republicans, to sound like they might be able to work along with it and get it passed. Now, if either of those don't happen, that would raise the possibility of a logical, negative reaction from the market.feedback

Steven Milunovich

Apple appears more interested in AR [augmented reality], which connects people, than VR [virtual reality], which potentially isolates experiences. Apple may be well equipped to lead given its core competencies in hardware design and software/hardware integration as well as its large base of affluent iPhone and iPad owners.feedback

Steven Milunovich

According to some industry sources, the company may have over 1,000 engineers working on a project in Israel that could be related to AR [augmented reality]. Our work suggests that AR could be the next major innovation from Apple and that its competencies could make the company a winner ... Augmented reality is an area where Apple could leapfrog competition in providing a superior user experience. This could result in sustained iPhone retention rates and more switchers.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I think we're really coming to a point where you're going to see things change. I think the president is going to have to give at least some hint of details. If he just gets up and says 'I'm still working on this package and it's wonderful,' the market will be disappointed.feedback

Art Cashin

Well, we're significantly overbought now. I mean, I think we're really vulnerable in the sense that things like the advanced decline indicator is not keeping up with the rate of the rally. We're above, 8 percent above the 200-day moving average, getting very close to 10 percent above in the S&P. That's usually a warning signal.feedback

Javier Lodeiro

It makes no sense for UBS to tie up resources in this business. Even so, Monday's transaction has neither the dimensions nor the strategic significance to have an impact on UBS shares.feedback

Kirt Gardner - UBS

We expect Wealth Management's net new money growth rate to remain around the lower end of our 3 per cent to 5 per cent target range for 2017.feedback

Colin Langan - UBS

We struggle to understand the run-up, particular as Q4 deliveries missed, though positive spin on the Musk-Trump relationship, reconfirmed Model 3 launch timing, and expectations of new reveals (including more autonomous features) are likely factors. We remain cautious with expected accelerated cash burn ahead of the Model 3 launch … [and] negative earnings revisions with the inclusion of SCTY.feedback

Art Cashin

It's not a very broad rally as it had been a couple weeks ago. So when it begins to narrow, you do worry about that. The volume was nothing to write home to mother about. So you look at those things and say, How much of this is an illusion and how much of it's real? If they punch through there, they could possibly get a tailwind and ... kind of another minor breakout.feedback

Axel A. Weber - UBS

(Tax reduction and infrastructure spending are) going to happen slowly and what we are seeing at the moment is whilst those medium to long-term prospects are good, the tailwinds that we were getting from that are going to materialize at the end of this year. The headwinds that are coming from some of the trade policy are likely to set in earlier, so we could face some period of volatility until actually most of the government is in place, appointments have been confirmed in the hearings.feedback

Alex Weber - UBS

Political uncertainty is now the name of the game, almost in every country.feedback

Axel A. Weber - UBS

In Britain we've seen that over the last summer. I'm pretty sure Marine Le Pen will be one of these candidates (in the final round) but I don't think she will be the winner of the race.feedback

Jim Cramer

I still continue to think it's undervalued. This is the first time that I felt that Apple has something that would make it so we really could be surprised by what it is.feedback

Steven Milunovich

We consider the installed base and retention rate the primary drivers of device and services value. … If Apple services were valued similarly to PayPal, the stock would be at least 10% higher.feedback

Dominic Schnider - UBS Wealth Management

The economy is expected to accelerate a bit this year versus last year but there's not going to be an awful lot of acceleration taking place. You can argue Trump is going to able to bring a huge fiscal stimulus and that's why growth is going to accelerate 4 percentage points. We think that is unlikely to happen; we have yet to see it's going to pass (the U.S.) Congress.feedback

Dominic Schnider - UBS Wealth Management

There's a lot of uncertainty here. For the Fed, in the current environment, this means: 'yes guys, we are going to normalize rates but it's going to be slow moving. Give us a little bit of time, let us assess the situation.feedback

Matthew Mish - UBS

You are lending increasingly to the type of person that has cash flow pressures.feedback

Jeremy Zirin - UBS Wealth Management Americas

Dividend paying stocks should benefit from demographics as aging Baby Boomers seek income growth in a low interest rate environment. Strong balance sheets, solid free cash flow generation, and low dividend payout ratios support corporations' ability to fund continued dividend growth.feedback

Eric Sheridan - UBS

No one thinks that's the best solution here but the opposite – making another change – also doesn't seem like good solution. Facebook and Google are going to continue to grow at very fast rates and continue to innovate and I think that would leave Twitter far behind at this point.feedback

Wayne Gordon - UBS

If you have a weaker currency, things that are more exogenous to just the politics of exchange rates begin to work a bit more in favour of (certain outcomes), for example capital flows out of China, which is really what's putting a lot of pressure on the yuan over the last year or so.feedback

Boris Rjavinski - Wells Fargo Securities

What will keep getting attention is what's coming from the new administration. Politics, as opposed to central banks, have become the primary driver of yields in the near term, and the main source of volatility. …It does seem to make a difference when a certain account tweets more or tweets less.feedback

Art Hogan

We would have prioritized what the president did in the first two weeks with the things that please us most. Building walls, changing immigration laws on the fly, starting trade wars … all that has the market saying, Wait a minute, you ran on tax cuts.' Whether it's done by reconciliation or done by legislation, it's going to take time. The shift back to focus on fundamentals, it's not going to take us substantially higher. It's taking us back to where we were two weeks ago.feedback

Scott Redler

This could keep the Dow above 20,000 this time. Earnings have been pretty good with 72 percent of companies beating.feedback

Julian Emmanuel - UBS

We continue to think they will converge to our number, which is 5.9 percent, because the legislative process is a long and complex thing. It's clear there are other things higher on the agenda than tax reform. Literally every issue with regard to tax reform is open for negotiation.feedback

Julian Emmanuel - UBS

The question is, have investors fully factored in this whole idea that the legislative and policy agenda is full enough such that tax reform is going to be very late 2017 or 2018 issue? And for us the most interesting thing sort of below the surface is that earnings estimates which we have believed for months are too high, actually have come down over the last week pretty dramatically.feedback

Dan Suzuki - Bank of America Merrill Lynch

Our perspective has been that in the very near term, while there's no more 'central bank put,' it's been replaced with a 'Trump put.' The 'Trump put' is reliant on not getting much detail on the eventual policies we're getting, in the near term, which keeps the hope trade alive.feedback

Dan Suzuki - Bank of America Merrill Lynch

Predicting Donald Trump's tweets is bordering on the impossible. Next week is the last major week of earnings season so that's going to be ongoing, but I think with all the political news, the earnings have taken a back seat. I don't anticipate there being any change. The bottom line for the earnings season is things are pretty good.feedback

Art Hogan

My guess is we're kind of running out of tape bombs that come out of the White House, for the short term. It feels as though my guess is we get any glimmer of a shift back to the fundamentals, the market finds a path higher.feedback

Dan Suzuki - Bank of America Merrill Lynch

The market is beginning to focus on some of the negatives that fall within the policy options. Right now the negatives of border adjustment, losing interest deductions and concern about trade friction … and overall social unrest. People are talking more about that stuff because we're not getting much clarity.feedback

Steven Milunovich

It's a great revenue line... and helps offset the fact margins are coming down on the iPhone. Given we don't know what Trump policies will be it's very difficult to model. We're sticking with iPhone price and modeling from there.feedback

Art Cashin

That thousand point move from 19,000 to 20,000 was accomplished in 42 days. And, that's very fast. That's the second fastest thousand point move in the history of the Dow. Most of the traders here think you may get a little bit of a pause or a slowdown. That's happened before. They think we may see a bit of a pullback in February, . That's rather consistent with a first time president, and the pattern that follows him. I think then you can get another leg to the upside that may be multi-month and then you will have a longer correction after that.feedback

Art Cashin

Will there be a test from North Korea? Will there a be a test from Russia? You can't get too, too comfortable.feedback

Tomasz Grzelak

Considering that the ... negatives are to be seen as phasing out in 2017, the results support our buy rating.feedback

Neil Wilson - ETX Capital

Tesco shares soared after it announced plans to merge with Booker Group, a major strategic play for the UK's largest retailer at a crucial moment for the industry and in its turnaround process. At first glance Tesco's merger with Booker makes perfect sense. Tie up the end-to-end wholesale/retail business and make savings in the process.feedback

Martin Blessing - Commerzbank

We must also see that we still earn decent money. That will certainly be the biggest challenge in 2017.feedback

Koen Straetmans

Increased geopolitical risk or an increase in protectionism could just as easily lead to commodity supply disruption, sending prices higher in the near term despite negatively impacting commodity demand, too. Over longer periods, correlation between broad commodity prices and policy uncertainty is low to slightly negative. Exceptions include precious metals with a more pronounced positive correlation, and a strong negative correlation with the energy segment.feedback

Tan Teck Leng - UBS Wealth Management

I think there is a big mispricing on the euro-dollar right now because the market is actually happily still using the euro as a funding currency for now because Draghi is extremely dovish. By the middle of this year, once the medium-term inflation expectation touches its target of 2 percent, we actually can expect a strong hint that he can reduce the program a lot more. There is a political premium right now on the euro and in fact, we don't think there will be big accident out of those events. So right now the price on the euro, you are getting a good discount.feedback

Jon Rigby - UBS
William Featherston - UBS
Joseph Head - UBS

Incorporating the IEA's (International Energy Agency) baseline demand revisions would, all else equal, bring forward our projected rebalancing from 2Q17 to 1Q17.feedback

William Featherston - UBS

We estimate XOM is now trading at 12.4x and 11.6x our 2017 and 2018 DACF [debt-adjusted cash flow] estimates, respectively, well above its historical average of 8.2x and the global integrated average of 7.2x and 6.4x.feedback

Cemil Ertem

The central bank could also use the rate tool, it's also on the table. The central bank's hands are not tied.feedback

Julian Emmanuel - UBS

The wall of worry which has supported stocks for 8 years has given way to a deep sense of hope and optimism. Such optimism is often seen near the end of bull moves/beginning of corrections rather than at the early or mid-stages.feedback

Julian Emmanuel - UBS

The laggards will lead in the new year, and there's a lot to choose from, particularly in the beaten-down areas of health care, certain consumer discretionary and software stocks.feedback

Eric Sheridan - UBS

Continued issues with user verification, bots and negative social behavior by users could cause any momentum to dampen.feedback

Eric Sheridan - UBS

We believe Twitter's ad revenue will likely be pressured (and grow below industry levels of mid-teens CAGR [compound annual growth rate] the next three years) given lackluster advertiser demand (among heightened competition), executive turnovers and challenged ad execution.feedback

Sergio Ermotti

We are happy to see that post-elections (in the U.S), we see both people that supported (President-elect Donald) Trump and people that were supporting (Hillary) Clinton becoming more positive about the economic outlook and being willing to consider investments going forward. Now, we need to see them translating that desire into reality.feedback

Sergio Ermotti

But it is starting to affect savings, most pension fund systems, insurance companies and the confidence of people who have been saving money thinking that they can leave a little bit out of their income to continue to prosper. It is creating this sense of inequality that goes on in Europe.feedback

Sergio Ermotti

I think if the collateral damage of low (interest) rates or negative rates would only affect banks, it would be okay.feedback

Sergio Ermotti

We need a higher degree of certainty in order to take action, it will be extremely expensive otherwise.feedback

Sergio Ermotti

We have a Frankfurt base where we house our wealth management operations and not just that... We have a framework in place and infrastructure that can be expanded if needed.feedback

Brendan Dillon - UBS

In terms of the LBO space, I think there's going to be a ton of activity.feedback

Mark Okada

That's going to be very bullish for risk assets. It's going to take a long time for all this to materialize, but it does change the way someone like me looks at the world.feedback

Mark Okada

This handoff from monetary to fiscal is a very powerful change in the way capital is being allocated and earned.feedback

Brendan Dillon - UBS

I think that the big difference between the last administration and now is that there will be a major shifting of priorities, including certain sectors falling out of favor and others becoming more attractive; and that makes for increased activity and repositioning which fit very well with the sponsored finance universe.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Nobody has enough power to topple this country with economics, terror, unrest or cruelty.feedback

Orhan Ökmen

To protect the lira's resistance against the U.S. dollar, investors' perception that the central bank will be unable to raise interest rates must be shattered as soon as possible.feedback

William Jackson - Capital Economics

An outright rate hike is the only way the central bank can take action and assure markets it will not let the lira plunge. The longer they go without doing it, the more aggressive action will be needed.feedback

Manik Narain - UBS

The longer you wait, the more inflation expectations and confidence get contaminated and the harder the problem becomes to arrest. They will need to move at least by 50 bps and indicate more tightening is ahead.feedback

Geoffrey Yu - UBS

You want to be somewhat defensive heading into March. We haven't had any event risk in sterling for quite a while now and we do think that triggering Article 50 is probably the next somewhat binary event risk.feedback

Geoffrey Yu - UBS

I still think there is a dollar component there if you compare to a relatively robust reaction to Friday's numbers but on the back of the prime minister's comments. The latest reading on the labor market provided evidence of strong wage growth and revived expectations of higher inflation, providing support to the greenback's well-established bullish trajectory.feedback

Geoffrey Yu - UBS

If we get it right probably we could see actually a structural upward move but if we do get it wrong then a downward move but again those would be areas given the valuations where we look at getting back into long sterling again.feedback

Russ Mould

The big upward revision to November and a 2.9 percent increase in average hourly wages are going to be enough to let markets keep their faith in the Trump reflation trade, and the U.S. Federal Reserve plans further interest rate increases.feedback

Brennan Hawken - UBS

We believe we are entering a period where earnings power may inflect for bulge bracket investment banks due to lesser regulatory constraints.feedback

Dennis Geiger

Shares appear to largely reflect improved fundamentals and refranchising benefits. Despite confidence in the long-term outlook, we're lowering our rating ... we'll likely wait for greater conviction into traffic and sales acceleration and more upside to consensus estimates before revisiting our recommendation.feedback

Brendan Dillon - UBS

First quarter 2017 will be one of our best quarters ever at UBS for leveraged finance.feedback

Daniel Major

Despite the uncertain gold price backdrop, looking into 2017 the European gold miners are in good shape from a cost and balance sheet perspective.feedback

Henry Croft - Accendo Markets

Today's focus will be the afternoon's U.S. jobs report, not so much for the notorious volatility-inducing non-farm Payrolls but for accompanying metrics. The unemployment rate is seen ticking up from December's 9-year low, while wage growth accelerates, something which could imply rising inflationary pressures that force the Fed to hike (interest rates) more quickly in 2017.feedback

Ian Lyngen

The response to Trump provided the Fed enough cover to move forward with the process of normalization. There are clear worries about the secondary impact of what a tighter monetary policy is going to do.feedback

Julian Emmanuel - UBS

A lot of the fixation is clearly on Dow 20,000, and how that reacts, but the idea is that with those numbers, you get roundaphobia. … I just think there's some natural hesitation around this round number. By virtue of the concept of a watched pot seldom boils, if it does boil, there's going to be information on whether crossing 20,000 is met with a buy or a sell. Our inclination is I think it could be met with some resistance.feedback

Julian Emmanuel - UBS

In our view, at 19-time earnings, we think it's fully priced in now. We think it could be deeper than the conventional wisdom is because of this newfound optimism and belief that [the Trump program's are] generating growth that is going to cushion the downside. Is a test of the 200-day moving average possible in the next couple of weeks? Absolutely. Is it a buying opportunity? Absolutely.feedback

Thomas Simons - Jefferies

…Prices are starting to go up. That's had an impact going up the chain. I think that was the message we go from that today.feedback

Art Cashin

It was mostly oil, but some of it was the Ford Motor Co acquiescing, and that had people worried about global trade. The transports went negative as soon as that came out. But then you got bailed out at the end because there was big market on close buyers.feedback

Thomas Simons - Jefferies

Janet Yellen said some members built fiscal stimulus into their forecasts. She didn't say how many there were and what it means. How do they look at 2017? How do they view the risks given the new administration and what does that mean for policy response? That was the biggest question I had coming out of the last meeting.feedback

Greg Valliere

The 'sugar high' stock market rally after the election was entirely warranted because there's a good prospect of stronger GDP growth in the next two years – stimulated by tax reform and reduced regulations. But the legislative process is often glacial: This will not be a 1,000-mile sprint, it will be one step at a time, starting at noon today.feedback

Steven Milunovich

Last year Apple initially provided the supply chain with high numbers only to cut numbers later. Given last year's misread on demand, its clear visibility beyond one quarter is limited causing Apple to play it safe for now. Apple could keep inventory lean through Dec in order to support what could be a difficult Mar.feedback

Brendan Dillon - UBS

In the LBO space, 2017 will be, if not a record year, a top two or three year. There's a lot of pent-up dealflow.feedback

Adam Brown

It would be great to see new issuers come to market - true new-money, new issuance that could soak up some of that cash that's on the sidelines.feedback

Adam Brown

We're not making major portfolio changes based on assumptions about what the new administration will actually be able to get done.feedback

Pat Keon - Thomson Reuters

Theoretically, less rules should make it easier and more profitable to lend money out.feedback

Brendan Dillon - UBS

It's a combination of record dry powder from financial sponsors, very healthy inflows, and strong 2016 performance from leveraged loan and high yield accounts.feedback

Adam Brown

Whether the Affordable Care Act is repealed or reformed, there will be changes and our view is that any changes to that act will be negative for hospitals.feedback

Manik Narain - UBS

The likelihood is rising that the central bank will consider some FX intervention. It won't be very aggressive but you would expect, given the loss in the reserve funds, that they would look to use the opportunity to lean against this strength in the currency. So you are probably talking of modest intervention rather than a sea change.feedback

Paul Donovan - Ubs

Both countries have banks in problems but if you see what is going on in Germany, banks are still lending. As an economist that's what I care about. As individual banks, do what you like, but what I am interested about is do we have credit going into economy? Is this supporting normal activity? Whatever is going on with the German banking system, they are still supporting the economy. Italy is rather depressing to look at.feedback

Jean-Frederic de Leusse

With this transaction, UBS France strengthens its roots and its ambitions in France.feedback

Adrian Zuercher - Agricultural Policy Advisory Committee for Trade

That could be an additional boost for Asia once the U.S. dollar strength starts to roll over. That should be a boost for corporates, bringing back earnings power. Return on equity should go up and we think Asia will have double-digit earnings growth next year. [It] should be around 11 percent.feedback

Adrian Zuercher - Agricultural Policy Advisory Committee for Trade

We think European companies will have solid earnings growth next year. If you look at valuation on European high-yield spreads, I think they're attractive.feedback

Adrian Zuercher - Agricultural Policy Advisory Committee for Trade

There's still 60 billion euros out that will start to buy corporate bonds, particularly the investment grade side. That should basically also lead to more purchases form market participants in the high yield space.feedback

Adrian Zuercher - Agricultural Policy Advisory Committee for Trade

We actually think the U.S. dollar is highly overvalued at this stage and particularly over the past couple of weeks. The rally is unjustified. We also think inflation in Europe will go up, inflation in Japan will go up and they will start to reduce quantitative easing, which should be positive for these two currencies.feedback

Adrian Zuercher - Agricultural Policy Advisory Committee for Trade

If Mr. Trump wants to spend more, he has to finance it, so fiscal deficits should become more negative. That's historically not something positive for a currency, also not for the U.S. dollar, and I think this will also start to weigh on the currency.feedback

Julian Emmanuel - UBS

The difference between this year and last year is that people are much more comfortable owning stocks with prospects of higher growth out there this year than they were last year.feedback

Scott Redler

The postelection move has been very technical. The market would break above barriers or records, extend and then pullback and the retest would hold. This has been healthy, as those who missed the first, second or third move had some time to position on the slight pullbacks.feedback

Scott Redler

Oil might be the sector that brings the Dow over 20,000. It was a broad-based rally that got us over 19,000. It's been a lot of rotation and the same stuff that got us up to 20,000.feedback

Julian Emmanuel - UBS

The temptation is to say that correlation correlates inversely to equity market direction, and I will say in down markets, correlation tends to rise.feedback

Julian Emmanuel - UBS

But just because dispersion in the market is as great as it is right now, doesn't imminently say we're due for a pause. In our view, what argues for a potential pause in the market is the fact that we're trading 19.2 times 2016 earnings and consensus expects 2017 earnings to grow by 12.4 percent, so there is a very hopeful case priced into the equities market right now.feedback

Scott Redler

We started out the week trying to figure out if the market would hold higher, to have Santa take it to 20,000. The small caps held higher. The techs that broke out last week retested the breakout level. The banks, which everyone says are overbought, haven't pulled in, and oil broke $51/$52, retested it and held.feedback

Julian Emmanuel - UBS

You're going to see a continued rotation but towards the laggards. You see a lot of them in tech and health care and some of those have lagged since the election in particular. It's probably a less discrete rotation away from the winners and more of a distinct rotation into the laggards.feedback

Art Cashin

I think what you're really seeing here is that Trump was, to some degree an unknown quantity. What would he do, shoot from the hip?feedback

Art Cashin

He has high expectations and he wants it done and I think the market believes that too.feedback

Art Cashin

But the people that he's putting in or nominating for these roles are highly professional. You may not agree with what their status is, but each one is very, very capable, and that has reassured the market in many ways.feedback

Manik Narain - UBS

There is some relief there has not been an escalation of tensions, unlike what we saw last year with the downing of the Russian plane.feedback

Manik Narain - UBS

In the medium term it could introduce some downside to expectations of a rebound in Russian tourism next year but for now markets see the risks as contained.feedback

Manik Narain - UBS

It's not entirely clear they perceive a need to tighten. The central bank has not been incrementally tightening liquidity in recent weeks as the lira has weakened so there is a risk they don't come up with a more hawkish intent.feedback

Steve Sawyer

I'm not concerned for refineries. Diesel for passenger cars is just one part of the demand pool.feedback

Art Cashin

I'm of the mind that I think the post-election rally will modify somewhat, but I don't think the correction we'll see go straight down because of all those people who want to buy the dip. You know, the market got away from me, but if I could only get a small selloff, I'll get myself back in.feedback

Michael Hewson - CMC Markets

It's also been a good week for oil and gas producers ... on the back of further gains for oil prices this week, while the weakness of sterling in the last couple of days is also helping.feedback

Art Cashin

I think it's good because this is the sign as we call them, buy the dippers. The people who said, My goodness, the rally started without me. I can't get in. I need a pullback.' And this was their first sign of a pullback.feedback

Art Cashin

Recall that it was the emerging markets that dragged us down after last December's hike. That will be a danger.feedback

Michael Binetti

We're lowering our FY17E EPS based on ongoing heavy markdowns and our view that F2Q revs & GM's [gross margins] are likely trending below plan. We believe NKE's current headwinds are temporary, but a re-acceleration will likely require reinvestment in more impactful innovation, a price/value equation reset, new pinnacle brand expressions (like the new Soho store) and more marketing.feedback

Mike van Dulken - Accendo Markets

Colour on cost-cutting has been scant at best and they haven't offered anything to make me think there is any recovery potential. No-one knows what Brexit means yet and their clients don't know either, so potentially it's a vicious circle.feedback

Rory McKenzie

They clearly haven't been repositioning to adapt to changes in the market. The reliance on discretionary spend at both Capita and (rival) Mitie (MTO.L) has not just been huge, but a huge surprise.feedback

Andrew Brooke - RBC Capital Markets

We see the disposals as a reaction to the balance sheet position rather than having any clear strategic logic.feedback

Julian Emmanuel - UBS

The active managers that we speak with who've had their head down for the last several years are for the first time showing smiles on their faces. The game in our view has changed for the medium term.feedback

Julian Emmanuel - UBS

The change in [market] psychology is very profound ... to us, it's essentially getting away from eight years of worrying about zero interest rates as the guiding principle for alpha generation, for searching for yield and for stock selection, which actually has also led to more passive investment.feedback

Richard Nguyen

We think this generous premium could deflate rapidly if investors begin to fear a sharp slowdown in Subscription growth.feedback

Brent Bracelin - Pacific Crest

Delays of a couple large deals tempered the company's outlook for subscription revenue and billings next quarter and will likely pressure shares tomorrow.feedback

Jim Paulsen - Wells Fargo Asset Management

In some ways, given the yield move, the market's doing pretty good in here. I still think the market probably goes higher. It's probably OK with a 2.5 yield but not if it keeps going up 10 basis points a day.feedback

Stephen Stanley - Amherst

The average [job growth] so far this year has been 180,000. We did 160,000 in October. 200,000 in November just gets us back to that.feedback

Stephen Stanley - Amherst

What's left to prove at this point? … I think we're down to debating the little nooks and crannies of whether there's 98 percent or 100 percent full employment.feedback

Stephen Stanley - Amherst

They're just pushing higher and higher and nobody has the conviction to stand before the freight train. At some point it will turn around, either before or after the Fed. I would argue that the level of yields we're getting into now are more consistent with where they should have been.feedback

Jim Paulsen - Wells Fargo Asset Management

That's how far we've gone. That's like the good old days. I remember living through many, many payroll Fridays, where I was holding my breath that we had a weak jobs number. It seems like ancient history, but it's precisely what we fear for tomorrow. It is funny in a way, we're getting back there.feedback

Art Cashin

If the [jobs] number is stronger than expected, people may feel, here comes Trump with some stimulus at just the time when the labor market has tightened up, and that is going to say a lot about inflation. That's why higher rates are the fear.feedback

Jim Paulsen - Wells Fargo Asset Management

I think this is a huge success when you think about a world that for eight years has been hanging on a deflationary abyss. You've got to at least enjoy this given that we can get some inflation.feedback

John Bahnken

We think bundling this digital platform with deposit products is a powerful combo.feedback

Jeremy Sigee - Barclays

I think they probably would have wanted the unit to be reasonably well capitalized.feedback

Mike Ryan - UBS

We think 2017 will be a constructive year. However, there are still some uncertainties on the horizon. While we certainly will see a different policy prescription by the Trump administration, we still have to see what they'll be able to deliver on in terms of legislative solutions.feedback

Steven Milunovich

Procurement estimates for F1Q-2Q/17 [Fiscal quarters 1 and 2 in 2017] are down YoY [year over year], putting current consensus estimates for unit shipments growth in Dec and Mar at risk. We still believe the guide for Dec implies at least moderate unit growth.feedback

Daniel Morgan - Ubs

There's a big rotation out of fixed income. That's huge money and it needs to find a home. The world is looking more like it's on a growth footing.feedback

Daniel Meng - CLSA

In the first half of 2017, we will continue to have very strong steel prices because property sales remain very strong at least till October and PPP programme is still in early stage and supply side should remain controlled.feedback

Daniel Morgan - Ubs

For those reasons you've probably had a big shift in sentiment towards a growth stance rather than a yield stance.feedback

Simon McGeary

The EC is blessing the callable MREL structure which is good. Banks can get MREL treatment up to the call date provided that there are no incentives to redeem, which paves the way for US style callables in Europe.feedback

Geoffrey Yu - UBS

I still think that's more of a dollar move, and they (the Chinese authorities) are allowing that to be reflected more than anything else, but it's important for them to try to ensure things are under control.feedback

Geoffrey Yu - UBS

I don't think people are ready to turn around on the dollar yet.feedback

Richard Cochinos - Citi

The dollar is taking a pause but with good reason - the U.S. is on holiday tomorrow and it's going to be a very light day the day afterwards. Investors will probably end up coming back on Monday to refocus not so much on the dollar and the U.S. story but more what are their expectations for Europe going forward.feedback

Art Cashin

Quite often when stocks re-rally into something or commodities re-rally into something like that, you do get a pullback. So, I'll be watching crude here.feedback

Mike Mahler

We knew that there was an opportunity, we just didn't know how high was high for the accessories business.feedback

Michael Lasser - UBS

The mindset had been that home improvement was a less important category up until the last few years. [Home Depot] has increased their relevancy over the last few years in the holiday season, as they've realized that they can capture a greater share of the spend.feedback

Michael Lasser - UBS

The home improvement cycle still has room to expand further, and Home Depot will benefit from that.feedback

Daniel Kalt - UBS

Cash, as banks offer it, is a subsidised asset because we do not pass on negative interest rates. Therefore for banks, cash is a certain problem. With each million in cash we get, it's a loss-making business for us.feedback

Thomas Lee

That's the thing we have to imagine: In a normalized rate world, equity is a great business [and] stock selection makes a ton of sense.feedback

Robert Sechan - UBS Wealth Management

If you end up making some major change from a tax perspective as it relates to carried interest, think about the M&A boom that could come out of that.feedback

Thomas Lee

We've almost created a generation of people who've compensated for low interest rates by doing things like buying dividend, going into private equity, seeking leverage in order to juice up returns. It's made equity management a terrible business.feedback

Robert Sechan - UBS Wealth Management

You have a millennial generation that represents 25 percent of the population that is moving into peak spending and earnings years. They are the most educated generation we've ever had, and they are the most tech savvy, and that is absolutely deflationary. Because everything that they look at to buy, they can check the price immediately.feedback

Thomas Lee

The bigger move has been this huge rotation … into the value names, small caps, the laggards. The irony is these were all trades that were working into Election Day, so they just all got turbo-charged.feedback

Robert Sechan - UBS Wealth Management

People were rotating out of [technology stocks] into sectors that were working just based on that information. Presidents don't dictate economic and profit cycles, they magnify them or they dampen them.feedback

Dominic Samuelson - Campden Wealth

Ultimately families are patient investors. Most of them have been extremely successful in creating and establishing businesses and organizations, so it is quite natural for them to want to be engaged.feedback

Dominic Samuelson - Campden Wealth

We do believe strongly that this is being driven by millennials, in essence those families with children that have been born since 1980. Not only are they keen on seeing and deriving strong financial returns and performance, they're also very concerned about the social impact and the social consequences that that has in the world today.feedback

Patricia Quek

In the older days, we've got one patriarch. He runs one business. But when families grow to the second and the third generation, we need to create more opportunities ... We need to have more direct investments, so that there are more roles for the naturally more grandchildren.feedback

Dominic Samuelson - Campden Wealth

Secondly, you have to be very pragmatic about where the hedge fund industry is today. It doesn't mean that hedge funds are over, but families are challenged by the fee structures of hedge funds. They are not entirely convinced that there is alpha there at the moment.feedback

Tom Naratil - UBS

The fear of the event was greater than the outcome of the event from a financial markets standpoint. It was an emotional decision.feedback

Axel A. Weber - UBS

We have the optionality, we can use the optionality but there is no need to front load using that optionality before we actually know what the outcome of the negotiations (is).feedback

Axel A. Weber - UBS

We have a huge presence in London, we just inaugurated our new building...but at the same time we have optionality. We are present onshore in most of the European markets. For us as a European bank, moving staff between London and locations where they need to be to be with their clients is going to be an issue we solve down the road.feedback

Axel A. Weber - UBS

There will be adjustment around the edges. I don't expect a full rollback on regulation but I expect much less regulation to come.feedback

Tao Wang - UBS

We think that calling China a currency manipulator probably has a reasonable chance (of happening), but in itself it does not really carry a lot of sanction. But if they levy a 45 per cent tariff on China then that's basically a violation of WTO agreement.feedback

Tao Wang - UBS

One is what will the Fed do and the other is Trump's fiscal stimulus – [where] the market is expecting one. The third one is really the trade policy, especially on China.feedback

Eric Sheridan - UBS

During the election, many of our large cap names (AMZN, GOOG, FB) were targeted by the President-elect & investors are struggling to determine the ramifications on antitrust policy, privacy/data in enterprise/consumer, net neutrality & taxation.feedback

Eric Sheridan - UBS

Among large cap names, we continue to reiterate our top recommendations (in order) for FB, GOOG, BABA, PCLN & AMZN (though fully acknowledge that forward investment curves & the election results may overhang those shares until Q4 earnings season).feedback

Art Cashin

It's a little too early to say, but there's an outside chance that it might be our old friends the bond vigilantes who are back, saying, OK, you're going to do tax cuts and you're going to do stimulus spending, what is that going to do to the deficit and where are we going to go from there?feedback

Bruce Bittles - Robert W. Baird & Co.

As long as you're seeing these cyclical sectors outperform, the market is saying (expectations of) this recovery is a lot greater than a few weeks ago.feedback

David Lefkowitz - UBS Wealth Management

I think this is a turning point in the outlook for growth and inflation to a certain extent.feedback

David Lefkowitz - UBS Wealth Management

Even though there's some readjusting, the sectors that are getting hit are relatively small. It shouldn't stand in the way of the market making new highs.feedback

Dan Veru - Palisade Capital

At the end of the day, you're seeing a broadening out of the market – incredibly positive.feedback

Vinay Pande - UBS Wealth Management

I think we are in for a regime of higher volatility, higher volatility of volatility for two reasons. This is a gentleman that markets aren't familiar with.feedback

Vinay Pande - UBS Wealth Management

The Trump reflection … makes the argument much stronger and this has produced the trigger to release the value and the relative value we see in equities versus bonds.feedback

Vinay Pande - UBS Wealth Management

The market has to adjust from a way of thinking that has been correct for the last 20 years to a way of thinking that may not be correct going forward.feedback

Michael Widmer - Bank of America Merrill Lynch

A reflating economy, if accompanied by a dovish (Federal Reserve) has historically been one of the most bullish environments for gold. As such, the yellow metal should find support from the current U.S. policy mix.feedback

Joni Teves - UBS

Looking ahead, we think much would depend on how the latest political developments affect economic growth, inflation/inflation expectations and, in turn, Fed policy and real rates.feedback

Adrian Ash - BullionVault

But at the same time it is hard to see what is really happening to the value of money. It would be silly to view gold as a portfolio hedge minute by minute.feedback

Joni Teves - UBS

While perceived higher uncertainty strengthens the case for holding gold in a portfolio as a diversifier and hedge, possible changes in fiscal policy could push real rates higher, offsetting safe haven demand and creating downside risks for gold.feedback

Art Cashin

Incoming presidents haven't been critical of past Fed chairman. This is a little bit different here.feedback

Art Cashin

What's going to be essential here is how quickly he begins to send out signals. Who does he pick for his Cabinet? What does he want to discuss about the repatriation of the money that's offshore?feedback

Art Cashin

That may be the beginning of maybe a little test he is going to give the new president-elect.feedback

Art Cashin

I'd like someone that not only give me some relaxation, but [has] enough credibility that foreign powers would say, That's a pretty good choice.feedback

Murthy Nagarajan - Quantum

This is a long-term positive for the debt market and may lead to repo rate cut of 50 basis points.feedback

Thomas Atkinson

At the top of our priorities is listed company issues. We are particularly concerned about risk posed by corporate fraud and malfeasance.feedback

Thomas Atkinson

Corporate fraud and malfeasance pose one of the greatest threats to the integrity of the Hong Kong market. We have received a steady stream of referrals from our corporate finance division.feedback

Daniel Clifton

All of a sudden the market looks nervous. Viriginia, Georgia, those are signs that this is going to be a close race if you're not calling them.feedback

Dominic Schnider - UBS Wealth Management

I think a lot of people here are looking into gold. That's one thing people have been looking into with the polls shifting toward Hillary.feedback

Andrew Owen - UBS

I would be wrong to sit here and say there isn't an economic efficiency dimension. In and of itself, that's not the reason to do it. It would fail on that basis. It has to be of value to our staff and our structure in the way we operate. There has to be a value there.feedback

Harald Egger - UBS

Working together, talking to each other, working in a more agile way. People are probably not so fixed any more in their working environment. They work much more in projects.feedback

Ashley Davis - UBS

The trading desk is our next port of call to achieve user mobility.feedback

Andrew Owen - UBS

For me, it's opening up and allowing people to work in different ways on whatever project, whatever activity they're working on. Being chained to a desk in a singular environment is restrictive.feedback

Nick Nelson - UBS

The market would cheer an 8 percent growth rate, that would be good enough.feedback

Nick Nelson - UBS

To see that starting to improve, it's just a glimmer but it seems we may be at an inflection point there.feedback

Nick Nelson - UBS

We think there's a bit of topline growth that comes through, there's a little bit of operational leverage, you have got some base effect obviously from oil. In Q1, oil will be up dramatically - maybe the banks as well - and both of those will get you to around 8 (percent EPS growth) but we struggle to get to the mid-teens, we think that's too high.feedback

Vinay Pande - UBS Wealth Management

The challenge is (UBS's) decentralised client base. Here we're talking about, yes, huge amounts of capital... but this is distributed across many, many, many people.feedback

Steven Milunovich

Apple is now only five points above Android's retention rate, an important level as it determines net switchers to iOS.feedback

Mike Ryan - UBS

We do need to separate the M&A cycle from the election cycle. Companies will make decisions on what they see as the long-term return opportunities that they see in the market, so what you're seeing now is more strategic M&A.feedback

David Bianco - Deutsche Bank

I think [with] the election, a lot of investors are realizing that we have to see what Congress looks like, we have to see what the first 100 days of policy look like. I think what we're realizing here is that there's a lot of political uncertainty that's going to be with us beyond the election.feedback

Mike Ryan - UBS

We're sort of putting everything into the election box right now.feedback

Steven Milunovich

This time we find higher overall smartphone purchase intentions the next six months with iPhone 7 interest especially strong in the US and rising demand for the Plus. However, China, is exhibiting signs of softness in F17, including lower interest in the 7 than the 6/6s.feedback

Bruce Bittles - Robert W. Baird & Co.

The fact [stocks are] holding up here in the face of this suggests the uncertainty out there, and we're going to have to wait until we get closer to Election Day. It's impossible to know. My gut is ... it's pretty close.feedback

Julian Emmanuel - UBS

The traditional fourth quarter rally may occur at a later date rather than right after the election.feedback

Daniel Clifton

I think the market is telling you, it's not someone that's going to have a blowout win.feedback

Julian Emmanuel - UBS

When the election is as contentious as this one has been with so much back and forth, and the prevalence of the third-party candidate, what our work has shown is the market has tended to trade very indecisively the month before and several months after.feedback

Sergio Ermotti

We delivered a strong performance across our businesses, despite seasonality and continued macroeconomic, geopolitical and market headwinds. Our strong position allows us to focus on helping our clients navigate the current environment. We will continue to execute with discipline and manage risk and resources prudently.feedback

Steven Milunovich

I'm probably not so much on that side of things, but to believe that they shouldn't be [acquiring new companies], you have to believe that the innovation is coming and that there will be some major new products over time, and I think the R&D budget suggests that that's likely.feedback

Brent Thill - UBS

Our positive thesis remains intact, we think NOW is becoming a true cloud platform and remind investors that if the company delivers on this with consistent execution, shares will see meaningful support beyond current levels. Our ongoing checks w/ NOW customers, prospects and partners remain notably positive.feedback

Simon Smiles

And that money's definitely going into the kind of risk factor, smart beta passive plays.feedback

Michael Sonnenfeldt

Hedge funds have come down over a decade from about 12 percent of our portfolios to about 8 percent, so it's been a disallocation or a reallocation away from hedge funds. Historically hedge fund returns were correlated to higher interest rates so in a low interest rate environment it's just tougher to get the juice out of them.feedback

Michael Sonnenfeldt

Most of our members are wealth-creators, first-generation entrepreneurs, so they made their money building small businesses into large businesses. When they sell it, their natural inclination is to roll up their shirtsleeves and invest in another small business because they have the expertise and the tolerance to do that.feedback

Steven Milunovich

IPhone 7 interest [is] tepid ... [UBS China] distributor checks find that iPhone 7 sales are weaker than the 6s was out of the box [after launch]. Apple [is] losing share to domestic handsets ... Apple's brand remains strong, but the App Store can be difficult to access and slow.feedback

Wang Tao - Reuters

The developers might have quickened the pace for investment, to finish the existing projects since sales performance was so great.feedback

Wang Tao - Reuters

Today (Wednesday)'s data showed developers are relatively cautious on new projects, because land has become rather expensive now, and such a strong sales momentum might not be sustainable moving forward.feedback

Dirk Klee - UBS

This is about integrating our historically fragmented infrastructure that we have globally into one platform. So we want to have the same processes, the same way of approaching UBS and we also want to raise synergies and scale in the back office.feedback

S&P 500 earnings have largely stagnated over the past few quarters, but the outlook is set to improve.feedback

John Mathews - UBS

If you think about the acceleration of billionaire wealth just over the past 10 years alone, we've been through what we call the second gilded age. These families all have decisions to be made. Do they want to pass it directly down to the next generation, or what are the other strategies and structures they can put in place?feedback

Mike Ryan - UBS

We're still likely to see divided government, we're still likely to see division of power, and we're still likely to see only incremental change because we're not going to have a mandate no matter who wins. We're kind of towards the end of the rope in terms of monetary policy. The real issue now is are we going to get some fiscal stimulus, and is it going to be targeting the right spots, for example, like infrastructure?feedback

David Bianco - Deutsche Bank

We need to see what's going to happen with the new administration and Congress in the first 100 days. This economy does need fiscal stimulus, and we might not be getting it.feedback

Mike Ryan - UBS

The Fed is in the process of resetting towards rate normalization. It's a multiyear, multistep process, but they have to continue to follow through on it.feedback

UBS SmartWealth is a strategically important move for UBS. It enables us to bring our advice and expertise to a much wider audience, at first in the UK, but in time to other geographies too.feedback

Alan Rechtschaffen - UBS Wealth Management

There is a fear of closing down markets, of lacking access to other markets, and I think that you saw that on the British pound and you see that affect the markets frequently. And [for] the candidates, that's become a front-burner item about whether or not we are going to participate in open trade.feedback

Most of the larger banks have stepped out of market making. And part of the regulation - basically don't hold proprietary positions - if you don't hold proprietary positions you are not that interested in market making.feedback

Axel A. Weber - UBS

Investors have been driven into investments where they have very little capability for dealing with what is on their plate and I think that is a sure reminder of where we were in a different asset class in 2007.feedback

Axel A. Weber - UBS

So I think the central bankers need to be very careful that they do not continue to produce disturbances in the markets, which they acknowledge - it's a known side effect - but the perception that the underlying impact of monetary policy outweighs the potential side effect in my view is starting to be wrong.feedback

Axel A. Weber - UBS

They (central banks) have taken on massive interventions in the market, you could almost say that central banks are now the central counterparties in many markets. They are the ultimate buyer.feedback

The last two weeks are a testament to that. The same kind of dynamics seven or eight years ago would have created a major fallout.feedback

Central banks can only help transition it from one place to the other. It's not the only medicine available to address the issues we have.feedback

We think the next leg of the story will prove more difficult, as investor attention shifts back towards the core workspace services business. While in our view this provides a more favourable outcome than an outright spin, we note GoTo was CTXS' fastest growing segment, and that core CTXS growth is likely to be challenged going forward.feedback

Sergio Ermotti

With respect to what we have experienced so far in the third quarter, normal seasonality, underlying macroeconomic uncertainty and heightened geopolitical tensions continue to contribute to client risk aversion and generally low transaction volumes.

A third impact to focus on is the impact of loose monetary policy globally, especially as we seem to be in a period where that policy appears to be in place for some time. In terms of what categorizes itself as a bubble, it is where we see excessive rises on a number of metrics on this index. Not just prices, we are looking at price-to-income, rents-to-prices and ultimately tracing these back to each cities history.feedback

What you have in Europe is, I think, an over-reliance on monetary policy to fix problems. Central banks have actually facilitated or at least encouraged other policymakers like finance ministers or those that do structural reforms to somewhat take a relaxed attitude towards acting fast.feedback

The market seems to be pricing in rate hikes down the road but not much change in the short term. Again, the moves (in fed funds futures) are very small, not very large.feedback

The property recovery has helped to stabilize domestic demand and the overall economy, but the recent +30 percent y/y ytd (year-on-year, year-to-date ) price rally across a number of big cities has heightened policymaker concerns that another property bubble is being reflated, especially with leverage rising so sharply.feedback

Tao Wang - UBS

A stronger property rally lasting into 2017 may increase the risk of another major round of downward adjustments thereafter. Investors should closely monitor property sales, new property starts and property investment for near-term upside risk, which may increase the medium-term downside risk.feedback

Tao Wang - UBS

The spreading of surging price momentum to more cities alongside an alarming rise in leverage could trigger more aggressive policy tightening, cooling the property rally.feedback

If it's navigated in a such a way that the (positive) spillover to the adjacent tier 3 cities continues to spread further, then maybe that's where you may get a first or second best outcome resulting.feedback

On the one hand, they need to temper the signs of froth that we are seeing in the higher-tier cities. On the other hand, they are still having to rely on the (market's) contribution to headline GDP growth that property investment as the whole–which is still reliant on the lower-tier city recovery–generates…so that 6.5 to 7 percent annual growth target is still met for this year.feedback
