Goldman Sachs slashes S&P 500 price and earnings forecasts
September 29, 2015

Citing a slower pace of growth for the U.S. and China, Goldman Sachs has lowered its S&P 500 earnings and price forecasts. In a note dated Sept. 28, but released on Tuesday, strategists led by Goldman’s chief U.S. equity strategist, cut the S&P 500 year-end target to 2,000 from 2,100. “‘Flat is the new up,’ will be the investor refrain for 2016,” said David Kostin in the note. “Our baseline forecast is that the U.S. economy will grow at a modest pace, earnings will rise, and the S&P 500 index will climb slowly while the [price-to-earnings] multiple declines as interest rates rise,” he said. The investment bank also cut its 2015 S&P 500 earnings-per-share forecast to $109 from $114, representing a 3% year-over-year decline in earnings. For 2016, Goldman sees the S&P climbing 5% to 2,100, with earnings per share for the benchmark coming in at $120, down from the previous forecast of $126.

Axel Springer buys 88% of Business Insider shares for $343 million

Axel Springer SE announced a deal to buy 88% of the shares of Business Insider for the equivalent of $343 million, which would give the German publisher a 97% stake in the digital business news site.

Volkswagen to be removed from Dow Jones Sustainability Indices

Volkswagen AG will be removed from the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices from Oct. 6 as a consequence of the car maker’s alleged cheating on emission-test data. “The [Dow Jones Sustainability Index Committee] reviewed the situation and ultimately decided to remove the Company from the DJSI World, the DJSI Europe, and all other DJSI indices,” S&P Dow Jones Indices said in a statement on Tuesday. “As a result, VW will no longer be identified as an Industry Group Leader in the ‘Automobiles & Components’ industry group,” it added. The move follows a deepening scandal over Volkswagen’s emission software in some of its diesel cars, which has allegedly been rigged to thwart U.S. pollution standards tests. Volkswagen shares were off 0.4% in Germany on Tuesday, deepening the year-to-date loss to 46%.

Yahoo to pursue spinoff of Alibaba stake despite IRS setback

Yahoo Inc. is moving forward with its attempt to spin off the company’s remaining stake in Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. , despite uncertainty about important tax aspects of the deal. Yahoo had sought early approval from the Internal Revenue Service of a tax-free standing for the spinoff, but dropped that effort earlier this month after pushback from the IRS. In a Monday afternoon filing, Yahoo said that it would go ahead with the spinoff, effectively taking its chances on a final IRS ruling as the federal agency and Treasury Department ponder new rules for these types of financial maneuvers. Yahoo is packaging the remainder of its Alibaba shares with a small operating segment, Yahoo Small Business, into the spinout dubbed Aabaco Holdings Inc., and hopes the transaction will occur in the fourth quarter. Yahoo shares jumped 3% in late trading Monday after hitting a two-year low during the regular session and closing with a 5.3% decline at $27.60.
