Chinese firms ordered to pay Disney, Pixar $194,000 for copying ‘Cars’: Xinhua

A Shanghai court ordered two Chinese firms to pay Walt Disney Co and Pixar more than 1.35 million yuan ($194,440) compensation for copying parts of their hit movies “Cars” and “Cars 2”, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Saturday. The ruling is the latest in a slew of intellectual property wins for large foreign firms, who have complained about widespread copyright infringement in China. Disney and Pixar took the Chinese firms to court saying the characters, titles and posters from local animation “The Autobots” were substantially similar to those from “Cars” and “Cars 2”.

Investors brace for 2017 shocks after surprise 2016 run

After a late-year rally fueled by the U.S. election pushed stocks to surprising new peaks, investors are wary that the market could be primed for a spill to start 2017. From here, though, investors expect the S&P 500 to rise by mid-single-digits in 2017, according to a Reuters poll earlier this month. Meanwhile, a market lifted in part by hopes for Trump's policy agenda could be deflated should any of those hopes be dented once he begins in office.

Yen up after attacks in Germany, Turkey, stocks steady on Yellen comments

The safe-haven Japanese yen was up in early Asian trade on Monday after attacks in Germany and Turkey spooked investors, while regional stocks were steady as financial markets pondered upbeat comments from the Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen. Traders were also looking ahead to the Bank of Japan's rates decision later in the day, and while policy settings are set to be kept steady the focus will be on Governor Haruhiko Kuroda's take on surging global bond yields and the impact on rates in Japan. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rose 0.2 percent in early trade on Tuesday, while Tokyo's Nikkei was flat.

Dow, S&P hit record highs; Fed meeting in focus

The Dow is less than 1 percent away from hitting the 20,000 mark for the first time. President-elect Donald Trump's expected agenda of economic stimulus and reduced taxes and regulations has fueled a market rally, with the S&P 500 rising 5.5 percent since Nov. 8 to Monday's close. “This market is still in the “Trump-trade” mode where it is anticipating a growth in the economy and the GDP and expects the incoming administration's policies to benefit the labor market,” said Andre Bakhos, managing director at Janlyn Capital LLC in Bernardsville, New Jersey.
