After the German Finance Ministry spoiled hopes for a tentative agreement overnight by dismissing the Greek proposals for not having enough "substantive solutions", subsequent reports have been somewhat more encouraging. Greek PM Tsipras and German Chancellor Merkel reportedly held a 'constructive' phone call, and a meeting of deputies was said to have brought the two sides closer to the framework for compromise. ECB's Weidmann appears to have maintained his unyielding stance in the same vein as his principled Bundesbank predecessors however, noting that Athens request to allow its bonds' use of collateral would be granted only if Greece abides by prior conditions.- After some improvement in trade data out of Japan yesterday and an upgrade of output and exports by the Bank of Japan earlier this week, today's preliminary Markit manufacturing PMI for February is a disappointment. Resident economist acknowledged some progress in operating conditions, but also noted that employment growth weakened for the second successive month in February despite reports of an improving economy. The report follows earlier findings from the Labor Ministry that wages of full-time workers rose for the first time in 2 years and were also the highest in 18 years at 1.3%. BOJ Gov Kuroda responded to press speculation of potential delay in achieving 2% inflation target by noting the central bank has a variety of policy tools to meet its objectives. Kuroda added that a sustainable fiscal structure for the economy is still desirable, adding the central bank is also paying great attention to stability in JGB markets.- Australia's Santos headlined today's earnings calendar down under, faring notably worse than Woodside Petroleum reporting results earlier this week. Santos posted a net loss A$935M vs profit A$516M y/y, maintained dividend payment, and reaffirmed FY15 production outlook, and also signalled it would continue cost reductions to deal with lower oil prices.***Equities***US markets: - ANN: Ann Taylor parent said to be working on sale - financial press; +9.0% afterhours- INTU: Reports Q2 -$0.06 v -$0.13e, R$808M v $784Me; +3.4% afterhours- JWN: Reports Q4 $1.32 v $1.35e, R$4.04B v $4.02Be; +1.5% afterhours- BRCD: Reports Q1 $0.27 v $0.24e, R$576M v $570Me; +1.4% afterhours- NEM: Reports Q4 $0.17 (adj) v $0.13e, R$2.02B v $1.83Be; +1.4% afterhours- ENB: Reports Q4 $0.49 v $0.50e (1 est), R$8.8B v $8.3B y/y; Raises dividend; flat afterhours- AAPL: Follow up: Said to push team to start production on electric vehicle as early as 2020 - financial press; flat afterhours- MRVL: Reports Q4 $0.25 v $0.24e, R$857M v $893Me; -3.3% afterhours- EQIX: Reports Q4 $0.56 v $0.98e, R$638.1M v $630Me; -5.0% afterhours- FUEL: Reports Q4 -$0.18 v -$0.25e, R$139.5M v $145Me; -22.8% afterhoursNotable movers by sector:- Consumer Discretionary: STW Communications Group SGN.AU -23.4% (FY14 results); Skymark Airlines 9204.JP +18.5% (may receive support); Hokuetsu Kishu Paper 3865.JP +1.4% (acquisition)- Financials: Cover-More Group CVO.AU -6.5% (H1 results)- Energy: Santos Ltd STO.AU -3.0% (FY14 results)- Industrials: Transpacific Industries Group TPI.AU -12.9% (H1 results); James Hardie Industries JHX.AU +1.8% (Q3 results)- Technology: Japan Display 6740.JP +7.8% (speculation to build manuf plant for Apple)- Telecom: Vocus Communications VOC.AU -5.4% (H1 results) - Source
