from_Tiffany_report

A predominantly brick and mortar retailer- Tiffany & Co (NYSE:TIF) has reported poor fourth-quarter and full-year results. There are several reasons for these results, but analysts will also seek to get insights if e-commerce retailers like Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) and eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY) have penetrated this premium jewelry segment.

The results of Tiffany &Co report:

Tiffany & Co (NYSE:TIF) reported both fourth quarter as well as full year results before the markets opened today. The quarterly sales fell for the first time in five years. The company reported revenues of $1.29 billion for the fourth quarter of 2014 as compared to $1.3 billion reported for the same period last year. Adjusted diluted EPS were higher at $1.51 as compared to $1.47 for the fourth quarter of 2014. The results were in line with the expectations of the analysts though investors were not impressed.

Revenues for the full year of $4.25 billion were higher than those reported for last year. The only silver lining was that sales from Asia/Pacific region, particularly China, Australia and Singapore were encouraging. The guidance for 2015 were also not very encouraging with Tiffany & Co (NYSE:TIF) expecting net earnings to fall by 30% in the first quarter. The company expects to touch $4.42 billion in revenues in 2015.

Foreign exchange was one main culprit foreign exchange effects were responsible for reducing net sales by almost 7% for the full year and 3% for the last quarter.

E-Commerce platforms continue to soar:

Though Tiffany had a bad quarter due to foreign exchange fluctuations, many other traditional brick and mortar retail giants are facing heat from e-commerce platforms like Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) and eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY).

These companies are now focusing on their supply chains so that they can target the reach of traditional retailers. These companies are exploring newer technologies so that their material can reach their customers faster. Opening more distribution centres is not solving the problem. Last mile deliveries still remain problematic and also costly. Amazon is taking a giant step in overcoming this problem.

The company has always expressed their desire to use drones for this purpose. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was not willing to play ball. Current rules restricted the use of drones for commercial purposes. But, there has been a softening in their stance. FAA has granted Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) a limited license to test its drone delivery system over private land in Washington state. This is only a tiny step as Amazon will have to address several issues before drone deliveries can be started. The foremost concerns relate to privacy and safety.

Other issues relate to technological aspects and need to be sorted out. However, the giant strides made by mapping technologies are very encouraging. Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) has achieved tremendous success with its driverless car and Amazon will be interested in some of the technologies deployed by Google. The company is also a leader in mapping technologies.

It continues to appear that brick and mortar retail chains will continue to be hammered by the new upstarts of the retail chains.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) is also feverishly finalising plans for its Wearable product. Innovation, for Apple, is a necessity as its models and features are copied by competitors as soon as they hit the market.

It has also played a major role as a game changer in many industries; all of us still remember what the iPod and iTunes did to the music industry. Chinese manufacturers are able to bring out cheaper versions of the smartphones with most of the features of iPhones.

This business is now becoming a commodity business. Google Inc (NASDAQ: GOOG)’s Android can match Apple’s iOS. A new line of business is required if Apple wants to match the growth and profitability it has achieved so far.

Wearables is expected to be the new battleground. Early players like Samsung may not have had great success, but insiders feel that Apple has the capacity to create a new market in itself. The company is also gearing up to face this challenge. This will also ensure that Chinese manufacturers get left out in the race and spend their money and time fighting for shrinking market shares and profits in the smartphone market.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) has several innovative strategies to stay ahead in its field. In fact, it is one company that does not define its market but looks at creating it. That is also one of the reasons that it is the darling of the Wall Street.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) is gearing up to give a tough fight to Chinese products in their home turf; China. Asia, particularly China and India are weak points in Apple’s world dominance strategy as these markets are very price sensitive.

Apple would not like to lower its price or its quality; hence it has to contend with lower sales in these critical markets. These markets are currently logging high sales growth in the smartphone industry particularly in the low-cost segment.

New strategies to corner market share:

As Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) is caught in a tight bind, it is exploring other strategies. One clever strategy that it debuted last September during the launch of iPhone 6 is to offer Google Inc (NASDAQ: GOOG)’s Android users facility to transfer data to iOS; Apple’s own operating systems.

Transferring data from one operating system to another is a big headache; many people do not switch over, for this reason. As Android is installed in maximum smartphones, shifting from one manufacturer to another is an easy task. Consumers used to face difficulty in transferring data from iOS to Android and vice-versa. Apple is now planning to go a step ahead.

They had always maintained a robust recycling program under which consumers could trade in their old iPhones for newer versions. Respected industry sources aver that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) is thinking of rolling out this program to cover all models across the industry.

This move may not appear to be aimed at Chinese or Indian markets, but it will pay dividends as most Asians are averse to disposing of old products. It will also help Apple capture a higher market share in the rest of the world.

binary options trading strategy

As the Binary options trading is highly lucrative, lot of traders and investors fall in this trap without knowing its strategies.

Today we are going to teach you to “EUR/USD” binary options trading strategy.

Why should we use the EUR/USD to trade binary options?euro usd trading strategy

In the Binary options trading you will be trading on familiar assets which is traded normally in the market. In this article, we are going to study the simple strategy to win EUR/USD binary options trading. Many binary options guru will teach you with some autotrading tool which will end up in signing up with a binary option broker.!!

Be careful with the guys who teach you using auto-trading tools. We are not opposing the auto-trading strategies, but we are just asking you to be careful.

List of Indicators we are going to use in this strategy:

-The Momentum indicator to find the strength of the EUR/USD signal

-Charting and Technical Indicators

-MACD Indicators

-Trading EUR/USD using the Parabolic SAR Indicator

-Bearish Market Signs

-Bullish Market Signs

How to apply Parabolic SAR and MACD Indicator in trading EUR/USD Binary options?

EURUSD-Parabolic SAR  binary strategy

In this Binary trading Strategy we will use Charting and Technical Indicators. We will explain how to use the Parabolic SAR indicator and MACD to buy and sell EUR/USD.

When to Buy or Sell EUR/USD?

When Parabolic SAR gives a green signal to buy, wait for the MACD signal. The MACD will verify that signal by crossing the zero line. This is the right time to buy the option. Similarly, when Parabolic SAR gives a signal to sell, wait for the MACD to cross the zero line. If MACD didn’t crosses, then there is no buy or sell trading at this time.

Does this Binary trading strategy work well?

My answer is : This strategy works well.

No.1 reason is that this strategy calculated using trusted and reputable signals and indicators.

No.2 reason is that this strategy depends upon single strategy, it focused on two indicators.

How to use Bullish Market Signs

There are two types of market signs, one is bullish and another one is bearish. If you want to find EUR/USD options currency pair tends to go bullish, look for two scenarios.

bullish market strategy EUR USD

Look at the parabolic SAR indicator shown in the figure. EUR/USD is trading above the parabolic SAR indicator.

Check out the graph below, MACD indicator just crosses from being negative to positive. i.e: crossing the ZERO line. Now you have the clear signal to go bullish.

How to use Bearish Market Signs and win EUR/USD binary trading

bearish market sign EUR USD binary startegy

Now it’s time to find whether the market tend to go bearish or not. For this, you are going to reverse the strategy we used in the above method. The EUR/USD binary options will be trading below the Parabolic SAR indicator. At the same time, MACD indicator will cross the zero line, but from positive to negative.

If you have any ideas about trading binary options EUR/USD, please comment below. We’ll add them in the article later.
