A doctor who had volunteered in Africa and recently returned to NYC was reported to have checked into the hospital this afternoon with symptoms. Subsequent tests have now come back positive. The rest of the story still seems somewhat murky but the key factors as reported are as follows: 1) Patient left Guinea on Oct 14th; 2) He did not show symptoms on the flight; 3) He quarantined himself to minimise the risks; 4) At some point during his quarantine, he ventured out to a bowling alley in Brooklyn while taking public transportation (subway and Uber); 5) He has been in close contact with 4 people who are now under observation; 6) First symptoms appeared this morning; 7) The patient is treated at Bellevue, one person under observation has also checked in, and the others are quarantined at home. US equity futures briskly sold off by as much as 15 handles following reports of confirmed infection, while USD/JPY fell over 25pips below 108 as Treasuries rallied.- China released another troubling report on the housing sector, with property prices rising y/y in just 10 out of 70 cities vs 48 in the prior month. M/M declines across the all-70 locations maintained their trend of -1.0%, while y/y prices fell 1.1% after rising 0.5% in Aug. Separately, Conference Board released its China Sept economic index. Despite another modest rise, resident CB economist warned that "sharp weakening in demand for both bank credit and real estate point to sluggish private investment in the last quarter of 2014."- New Zealand put out its trade data for the month of September, registering a record high and also a 3rd consecutive trade deficit. Export volume was roughly in line with estimates, even as shipments to China fell an outsized 30% y/y. Exports of dairy were also down low double-digits. Imports were the key driver of the deficit, coming in at a record high with inclusion of the Dreamliner aircraft for Air New Zealand. NZD/USD hit a 2-week low below $0.78 on the release.***Equities***US markets: - RUBI: Reports Q3 $0.05 adj v -$0.05 y/y, R$32.2M v $29.1Me (2 est.), raises FY14 -$0.06 to -$0.03 v -$0.36e, R$122-123 v $119Me (prior -$0.41 to -$0.34, R$117-119M); +19.2% afterhours- KLAC: Reports Q1 $0.47 v $0.46e, R$643M v $622Me; Intends to pursue a leveraged recap; to issue special $16.50/share cash dividend; to buyback an additional 3.6M shares; +15.9% afterhours- DRIV: To be acquired by investor group led by Siris Capital Group for $26.00/shr in cash; deal valued at approx $840M; +15.1% afterhours- RP: Said to have been approached by possible buyers - FT; +13.4% afterhours- MXWL: Announces Development Agreement with Corning to Advance Ultracapacitor Technologies; +12.9% afterhours- N: Reports Q3 $0.11 adj v $0.04e, R$143.7M v $141Me; +4.3% afterhours- MSFT: Reports Q1 adj $0.65 v $0.49e, R$23.2B v $21.9Be; +3.1% afterhours- CB: Reports Q3 $2.17 v $1.95e, R$3.38B v $3.37Be; +2.0% afterhours- IM: Reports Q3 $0.62 v $0.62e, R$11.2B v $10.9Be, guides Q4 $0.95-1.02 v $0.98e; Rev +8-12% y/y (implies $12.7-13.2B v $12.5Be); +1.8% afterhours- CBI: Reports Q3 $1.51 v $1.39e, R$3.38B v $3.45Be; +1.2% afterhours- JNPR: Reports Q3 $0.36 v $0.35e, R$1.13B v $1.13Be; +0.9% afterhours; Approves $1.1B increase in buyback program (11% of market cap); +0.9% afterhours- LMT: Said to have reached a $4B F35 jet deal with the Pentagon - financial press; +0.6% afterhours- ALTR: Reports Q3 $0.38 v $0.37e, R$499M v $491Me; guides Q4 Rev -6% to -2% q/q implies $469.6-489.6M v $487Me; -3.7% afterhours- OLN: Reports Q3 $0.33 v $0.42e, R$593.6M v $612Me; -6.0% afterhours- FLS: Reports Q3 $0.93 v $1.00e, R$1.21B v $1.29Be; -6.6% afterhours- UFCS: Reports preliminary Q3 EPS -$0.03 to $0.01 v $0.30e (1 est.); -8.5% afterhours- P: Reports Q3 $0.09 (adj) v $0.08e, R$239.6M v $238Me; -8.7% afterhours- AMZN: Reports Q3 -$0.95 v -$0.73e, R$20.6B v $20.8Be; -10.7% afterhours- SYNA: Reports Q1 $1.04 v $1.18e, R$282.7M v $287Me; -12.3% afterhours Notable movers by sector:- Consumer Discretionary: Qantas Airways QAN.AU +3.4% (AGM comments)- Financials: AMP Limited AMP.AU +3.2% (Q3 results); Monex Group 8698.JP -2.4% (H1 results)- Industrials: GWA Group GWA.AU +1.1% (FY15 guidance); Great Wall Motor 2333.HK -2.2% (Q3 results)- Technology: ZTE Corp 763.HK +1.4% (Q3 results); Kingsoft 3888.HK -7.4% (Q3 results); Hitachi High-Technologies 8036.JP +2.2% (H1 results)- Telecom: China Unicom 762.HK +2.4% (Q3 results) - Source
