    Earnings Review: Qihoo results raise more questions than answers
    In my earnings preview, I stated that Qihoo needs to give more information on the state of its privatisation bid, which is looking more likely to be abandoned. However, Qihoo’s management gave no new commentary on the bid, and took the unusual step of not providing third-quarter guidance and not hosting an earnings conference call. This leaves investors in limbo.

Nyshka Chandran writes office stock in the capital city, Phnom Penh, is set to surge 64% by 2018, according to new research by Knight Frank, as both foreign and local developers bet on revived interest ahead of an economic integration plan by The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

    Yuan's fall tiny compared to sliding yen, euro

    Cuffelinks
    The real story of the past year has been the rise of the US dollar as the Fed prepares to raise interest rates with the improving US economy while other major markets are slowing, cutting rates and printing money. The Chinese were remarkably patient watching the yuan being dragged upward by the US dollar peg. Over the past year, the yuan has fallen a tiny 4% against the US dollar, including the 3% “shock” devaluation in August. By contrast the euro has fallen by 15% and the yen has slid by 14% over the same period. Japanese and European company earnings and share prices have benefited from the falling yen and euro.
