    Dividends are what matter now

    The Wall St Journal
    Dividends are playing an unusually large role in the stock market’s run to record highs, adding to investors’ concerns about stretched valuations and soft corporate earnings. The five-year rolling correlation between S&P 500 companies’ dividend yield and the index’s performance has been at 0.80 or above for the five quarters through June, according to S&P Global Market Intelligence. That is the highest since 1993 and up from an average of minus 0.1 dating back to 1941.

    PBoC's Zhou under pressure to ease further

    Bloomberg
    Zhou Xiaochuan probably isn’t finished yet. Even after cutting interest rates for the fifth time since November and telling banks they can hoard less cash, the People’s Bank of China governor remains under pressure to do more to support the world’s No. 2 economy amid the biggest slide in stocks since 1996. “A circuit breaker is needed,” says Frederic Neumann, co-head of Asian economics research at HSBC Holdings in Hong Kong. Equities rallied around the world on Tuesday after the PBoC said it will cut the one-year lending rate by 25 basis points to 4.6% and lowered the required reserve ratio by 50 basis points for all banks.
