    Morning Report APAC: Nikkei slips on stronger JPY
    Asian markets were in flux this morning, without the usual overnight guidance from the US and UK markets. There seems to be a general fear that markets will be under pressure once US borrowing costs rise, amid the belief that the US President may not come good on economic stimulation

    Buffett rips Trump on tax returns and bankruptcies

    Bloomberg
    Billionaire investor Warren Buffett ripped into Republican Donald Trump Monday over his refusal to release tax returns, his business bankruptcies and his attack on a fallen soldier’s family, repeating a famous phrase from the McCarthy era, “have you no sense of decency, sir.” Buffett, campaigning on behalf of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, challenged Trump to meet him “any place, any time” with a copy of his tax returns. Buffett said he would bring his returns and the two of them would answer questions from the public. He dismissed Trump’s contention that he couldn’t release them because he’s being audited. Buffett said his return is being examined by the Internal Revenue Service as well.

    Buffett says owning IBM shares could prove a mistake: CNBC

    Reuters
    Warren Buffett, chairman and chief executive of Berkshire Hathaway Inc, told CNBC on Monday the firm's ownership of IBM shares could prove a mistake and that he was buying more US stocks overall since the end of last year. "We've owned stocks that we've lost money in," said Buffett, the world's third-richest person. "If I'm wrong, you sell them out and take a big loss. We've done that on a few occasions with stocks and bonds over the years." Berkshire, which held an 8.59% stake in IBM as of Dec. 31, 2015, said in an annual shareholder letter on Saturday that it planned to keep that stake despite a $2.6 billion paper loss at the end of last year. Buffett told the cable television network he did not think he was wrong for owning IBM shares so far, but said it "could be" a mistake.

    Warren Buffett defends 3G partnership in annual letter

    Reuters
    Warren Buffett used his annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders to launch vigorous defences of an aggressive private equity partner and a maligned mobile home unit, as his conglomerate recorded robust profits. The world's third-richest person and a revered investor, Buffett also injected himself into the contentious 2016 US presidential campaign, lambasting candidates who talk down the nation's economic future as "dead wrong" – an apparent jab at Republicans and frontrunner Donald Trump.
