tesla: tesla beats estimates, ships 25,000 vehicles in first quarter


san francico: tesla inc set a record for deliveries and production in the first quarter, beating analysts’ estimates as chief executive officer elon musk prepares to begin building the model 3 in july. the maker of electric cars and energy-storage devices shipped just over 25,000 vehicles in the year’s first three months, palo alto, california-based tesla said in a statement on sunday. that topped the average forecast of 24,200 from three analysts and should bolster confidence in tesla’s target of delivering as many as 50,000 autos in this year’s first half. “it’s all about the model 3 right now, but this is very good news,” ben kallo, an analyst at robert baird & co, said in an interview. “25,000 units is the best we could have thought, and people are looking at model 3 fo...






the cbo just delivered a huge blow to republicans’ obamacare replacement

netflix stock continues its rocket rise


streaming-video giant netflix reported first-quarter subscriber gains monday that fell short of estimates — largely because there wasn’t a “house of cards”-style hit to draw new viewers and retain others.but the lack of big-budget productions also boosted the company’s net income. next quarter, with the return of “house of cards” and three major movies on the release schedule, profit will miss estimates while customer gains will improve, netflix said.the conundrum whipsawed netflix investors late monday, with the stock dropping on the subscriber figures before recovering later and moving higher. the shares rose 1.4 percent to $149.30 in extended trading after results were announced. they have gained 15 percent this year through april 13.the world’s biggest paid video ser...






the republican health-care arguments that were most severely hurt by the cbo rep

trump voters taking hit? health bill estimates show seniors facing high costs


raising a political problem as much as a financial one, newly released budget estimates show elderly americans could be hit hard by premium hikes under republicans' obamacare repeal bill -- affecting a key constituency for president trump. the congressional budget office report released monday shows 64-year olds making $26,500 would see premiums increase by an estimated 750 percent by 2026.under current law, they pay $1,700. but according to cbo projections, under the new bill, this group would have to pay almost $14,600—more than half their income. office of management and budget director mick mulvaney pushed back tuesday when asked about a politico report suggesting the “clear losers” of the american health care act would be trump voters between the ages of 50 and 64, right be...

babies born to muslims will outnumber christian births by 2035: pew research cen


new delhi: more babies are born to christian mothers than to anyone else currently, but in 20 years, the number of infants born to muslim mothers will be higher, by a modest amount, according to new estimates released by the pew research center, a us research body. "less than 20 years from now, the number of babies born to muslims is expected to modestly exceed births to christians", new pew research center demographic estimates show. that's because in recent years, as well as looking ahead, christians have had and will have a disproportionately large share of the world's deaths because of their populations' relatively advanced age. by contrast, the relatively young population of muslims has meant higher fertility rates as a whole across muslim populations.

but do these numbers add up?


now that the brouhaha over budget 2017 is all but over, all eyes shift to urjit patel and the reserve bank of india’s (rbi) monetary policy announcement this wednesday. the statement following the budget is always of special interest as it is read as a signal of whether the government and rbi see eye to eye on broad macroeconomic umptions underlying budget numbers.much, therefore, depends on the credibility of the budget numbers. finance minister arun jaitley has apparently been fairly restrained: deviation from the fiscal deficit target is relatively small at 0.2 percentage points. so should the rbi supplement his efforts with a monetary stimulus? in layman terms, should the monetary policy committee (mpc) cut interest rates? or should it take the view that monetary policy is already easy
