Markets rallied strongly right around the world this week, no doubt bringing relief to retail investors and money managers alike. Some commentators continue to say it’s just a relief rally, but as many markets set new highs for the year, the bears are getting quieter. The rally was largely on the back of stronger than expected data out of China, as exports rose at the fastest pace in a year. Overnight, US inflation data came in lower than expected, supporting the US Fed’s decision to keep rates on hold. Holders of China-exposed consumer stocks had a scare this week; after closing at $203.88, Blackmores plunged as low as $144 (-29.4%) before paring some of the losses to be sitting around the $169 mark at the time of writing. After a week focussed on economic data, I thought I’d bring you a change of pace this weekend, with 3 wires with a stock focus.
