Financial Orbit wrap 27/08/15

Five sentences or graphics which sum up the Financial Orbit output over the last 24 hours across the website, twitter account and anything else thought about...

A day of travelling today so some brief thoughts...

1. Why China matters...(via the front page of today's Financial Times):

2. I have been perceiving value due to the dividend yield signals for a while: mega oil rally

3. Hang on...didn't US Q2 GDP second estimate look rather good?

US GDP Annualized (QoQ) Q2 S: 3.70% (est 3.20%; prev 2.30%)

Bit of life in the US consumer...although note did follow a bad Q1 hence really need at least another quarter to confirm...and patchy macro tells you that it is not a slamdunk.  

4. Was surprised to see Pernod Ricard shares marked down on their results report as I thought their Asian consumer readacross was solid:

5. Ah...Jackson Hole key highlights (via here):

  • 1130 GMT - Fed's Bullard speaks to Bloomberg
