For the 13th consecutive meeting, the BOJ kept its overall assessment unchanged that economy continued to recover moderately as a trend. BOJ also affirmed its assessment of exports, investment, employment, consumption, and inflation, while lowering its view on housing to state the decline in housing investment following front-loaded increase has continued. Also of note out of Japan, earlier Nikkei report indicating Japan Economic Council may push forward its regular meetings to as early as Sept 16th from previously scheduled Oct to allow for more deliberation regarding the next round of sales tax increases. USD/JPY hit its lows after the BOJ but still remained within a 20-pip 101.75-95 range for the session.- Australia economic data for July were mixed. Growth in retail sales at 0.4% m/m was in line with consensus but slower than 0.6% prior. Terms of trade were in deficit for the 4th straight month, albeit narrower than anticipated. Exports rose 1% m/m and imports were flat. Shipments to China fell about 10% to A$7.6B, iron ore exports were up slightly, while coal shipments were little changed. AUD/USD briefly rose above $0.9360 after trade figures before retreating below $0.9350. - Shares of Yum Brands were down 3.5% in extended session, warning about significant negative impact related to poor food handling in China. Q3 SSS are expected to fall 13% after rising 15% in Q2.***Equities***Market Snapshot (as of 03:30 GMT):US markets: - MITK: USAA and Mitek Settle Lawsuit; +70.5% afterhours- BOLT: To be acquired by Teledyne at $22/shr in cash valued at $171M; +34.8% afterhours- TIBX: Announces review of strategic alternatives; +10.3% afterhours- PVH: Reports Q2 $1.51 v $1.43e, R$1.98B v $1.99Be; +7.8% afterhours- HRB: Reports Q1 -$0.40 v -$0.41e, R$134M v $129Me; +3.0% afterhours- YUM: Sees China Q3 SSS -13%; cites significant negative impact from bad publicity about food handling by supplier Shanghai Husi - filing; -3.5% afterhours- AVAV: Reports Q1 -$0.16 v -$0.08e, R$51.9M v $49.4Me; -6.4% afterhours- GNE: Considering Alternative Ways Forward for Oil Shale Pilot Project in Israel; -8.8% afterhours- MTRX: Reports Q4 $0.28 v $0.37e, R$344.4M v $357Me; -15.3% afterhours Notable movers by sector:- Consumer Discretionary: 361 Degrees 1361.HK +4.0% (strategic alliance with Baidu); Holdings WTF.AU -5.7% (regulator update)- Financials: China Vanke 2202.HK +3.2%, Poly Real Estate 600048.CN +1.0% (property developers allowed to issue bonds); BJ Capital Land 2868.HK +3.9% (Aug sales result); Hulic 3003.JP +0.3% (comments from President)- Materials: Panoramic Resources PAN.AU +4.9% (FY15 production guidance)- Technology: SK Hynix 000660.KR +1.5% (press speculation on DRAM production); Samsung Electronics 005930.KR +1.9% (unveils products) - Source
