Lead times suggest Pacific Blue iPhone 12 Pro models are most popular

A check of iPhone pre-order lead times on Friday suggests that the iPhone 12 Pro models appear to be Apple’s most popular in 2020, according to Loup Ventures.

In a short note published Friday, Gene Munster and David Stokman assert that lead times for the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max have “essentially mirrored” the two 2020 iPhone models released in October.

“Importantly, we were not expecting changes to lead times this morning given supply for the two most recent iPhones is likely greater than the supply for the two iPhones that began pre-orders on Oct. 16th,” the duo wrote.

However, iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini delivery dates began slipping soon after pre-orders became available at 5 a.m. Pacific (8 a.m. Eastern).

Lead times for the larger 6.7-inch model clocked in around seven to 17 days depending on color, capacity, and carrier. As of

Treasury Volatility Bet Is Paying Off as Blue Wave Hopes Fade

(Bloomberg) — A large option wager that Treasuries will see less volatility than many had expected over the U.S. elections is paying off.

The bet was simple. A short position was built up in a so-called strangle on 10-year Treasuries — a pair of upside and downside options — which generated more than $31 million in premium.

It pays off if 10-year bond yields remain between 0.65% and 1% to the options’ expiry on Dec. 24. A break out in either direction though could have left the volatility seller with potentially unlimited losses.

Canon, Nidec Outlooks Offer Early Hints for Japan Blue Chips

(Bloomberg) — As earnings season kicks off in Japan, forecast upgrades by two major manufacturers could be an early indication of a profit recovery among the nation’s blue chips.


Load Error

Canon Inc. and Nidec Corp., two of the earliest major manufacturers to report earnings, both upgraded their full-year outlooks on Monday. Canon is now forecasting operating profit 42% higher than the figure it gave previously, while Nidec lifted its outlook by 12%.

Both companies cited the impact of improved sales and cost cuts, and the newly released predictions were each broadly in line with the average analyst estimates. The upgrades follow that of Murata Manufacturing Co., which gave preliminary first-half earnings well above its forecasts on Friday, while also suggesting it may lift its full-year outlook when it gives full earnings on Oct. 30.

With the companies among the earliest to report of Japan’s major manufacturers, investors will be
