(Moody’s) International  US factory orders, auto sales buoy growth outlook – The US Commerce Department has reported that new orders for US- made factory goods increased 0.7%, for a third straight month in April 2014 and automakers reported robust vehicle sales in May, boosting the outlook for the second-quarter economic growth. March’s order data was also revised upward at 1.5% advance, which had previously been reported as 0.9%. Surprisingly, strong domestic sales from automakers in May bolstered the upbeat view on the factory sector and suggested that manufacturing was poised for further growth. According to research firm Autodata, automotive sales surged 11.4% from a year earlier to a seasonally adjusted annual 16.77mn units, the strongest pace since February 2007. Unfilled orders recorded their largest gain since November, indicating factories will be busy in the months ahead. (Reuters)  ECB poised to act on disappearing Eurozone inflation – Inflation in the Eurozone fell unexpectedly in May 2014, sealing the case for the European Central Bank (ECB) to act this week with a bunch of measures to stimulate the economy and keep it from the clutches of deflation. The EU's statistics office Eurostat said that annual consumer inflation in the 18 countries sharing the euro fell to 0.5% in May from 0.7% in April. Economists polled by Reuters had expected inflation to remain steady. The weak May inflation reading, which was the lowest level since November 2009, bolsters the case for action and will undermine any resistance by hawkish members of the Governing Council. Another Eurostat data showed that the bloc's unemployment dipped marginally to 11.7% in April from 11.8%, but still near the record high of 12% registered a year ago. Around 18.75mn people are without jobs in the Eurozone –76,000 less than in March. (Reuters)  WB approves first Russia investment since crisis – The World Bank (WB) approved an investment in Russia for the first time since President Vladimir Putin annexed Crimea, overriding opposition from Canada and lack of support from the US. WB spokeswoman Serene Jweied said that the International Finance Corp., the lender’s private-sector arm, approved parts of a €250mn package, enabling French grocery retailer Groupe Auchan to expand in Russia, Vietnam and other emerging markets. The deal thrusts the Washington-based lender into the debate over how to use economic sanctions to punish Russia for its actions in Ukraine. The WB’s planned investment – its first in Russia since February – forced countries that have slapped sanctions on Putin’s inner circle to consider withholding development aid as part of their toolkit of penalties. (Bloomberg)  Barclays to start cutting jobs in investment banking – Barclays Plc, the UK’s second-biggest lender by assets, will start cutting hundreds of jobs across its investment bank this week. About 100 jobs will go in Asia, and reductions will also be made at Barclays’s markets and investment-banking units in London and New York. These eliminations are part of the 7,000 jobs CEO Antony Jenkins said the bank will cut by 2016. Jenkins is trying to revive profitability by cutting costs and targeting fewer clients amid a decline in income from trading fixed income, currencies and commodities – traditionally Barclays’s biggest source of revenue. The reductions follow a series of senior departures from the bank including Robert Morrice, Asia-Pacific Chairman and CEO, Hugh McGee, CEO of the Americas division, and Larry Wieseneck, Co-head of securities. (Bloomberg)  Moody's lowers ratings for Citigroup's Banamex over alleged fraud – Moody's lowered its baseline credit and local currency ratings for Citigroup’s Mexican banking unit Banamex, while warning that Banamex's standalone bank financial- strength rating could be next, as the institution faces investigations into bad loans given to an oil-services company. Moody’s said that Banamex's baseline rating was cut one notch, to Baa2, which implies moderate credit risk, to take into account uncertainty stemming from a number of ongoing investigations by federal and financial authorities both in Mexico and the US, as well as Citigroup's and Banamex's internal reviews. (WSJ) Regional  PineBridge raises $140mn for GCC real estate fund – A US- based asset management company, PineBridge Investments has raised $140mn for a Shari’ah-compliant fund that would invest in income-producing real estate assets in GCC countries. PineBridge’s Middle East's fund will acquire existing real estate assets that generate stable returns, with a focus on the logistics, social infrastructure and community retail sectors.
