Foxconn Q2 profits

Just keeping an eye on Apple, which is an old session stock on IG. This is after mega Apple supplier Foxconn said Q2 profits slipped 1% and downgraded its annual sales outlook.

Apple stock

Now, just taking a look at Apple's stock because it has risen, as you can see there. But that pattern is really kid has dropped off and that is also due in part to Apple's results and outlook which indicated soft demand for its latest iPhone and weakness in the global economy.


However, this number from Foxconn is terribly important because the Taiwanese company is the world's biggest contract electronics maker. And when it makes that sort of comment, the world of investing lessons. Now, the group or the unit in Foxconn, which includes smartphones and makes up about half of Foxconn's total revenue while this division is expected to report sales that slightly will fall year on year in the third quarter.

Baidu and JD

All this, of course, feeds into this slow down picture, just showing you a picture of Baidu and JD in a moment. As you can see that these stocks have also tipped slightly lower. So, you are there a similar picture and it has come down.

Both JD and Baidu's shares fell after Beijing's recent economic support measures failed to lift stocks like Alibaba and Baidu and JD Chip stocks across the board also fell. Japan in Japan's chip makers and chip related stocks fell early in the session.

So where is the salad dressing now? If we don't see more support measures come through to boost demand, especially in China, we could see a continuation of weak consumption for tech goods makers going into the second half.

    • The crypto market appears to be showing signs of recovery, with significant improvements in the Sharpe Ratios of Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum, according to an article published on Friday.  The Sharpe Ratio, a measure used to understand the return of an investment compared to its risk, has seen a notable increase for both cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin's Sharpe Ratio has risen from -2.4 to 0.68, while Ethereum and BGB have also experienced a similar uptrend. This change signifies higher returns at lower risk, which is expected to attract more investors to the crypto market. In addition to the improved Sharpe Ratios, increased network activity and trading volume as shown on CEXs like Bitget, Binance, and a few DEXs are suggesting a healthier market state. The current trading prices of Bitcoin, reflect this overall positive market sentiment. As of Friday, Bitcoin was trading at $27,069.73, BGB at $0.454 and Ethereum at $1,677.89. These developments are significant as they indicate reduced risk in the crypto market. The increase in the Sharpe Ratios for Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum suggests that these cryptocurrencies are becoming less risky investments, which could potentially lead to an influx of new investors into the market.  Could this rise in Sharpe Ratios coupled with increased network activity and trading volume point towards a recovering and less risky crypto market?
