Data was collected in Australia, Austria, Brazil, China, Germany, the Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, the UK, the US and South Korea. In all, 22 qualitative and 13,000 quantitative interviews were conducted representing almost 400 million consumers. Ericsson ConsumerLab’s trend reports focus on how consumers act and what they think about telecom and TV products and services, helping operators to understand their subscribers and develop revenue generating strategies  helping operators to understand their subscribers and develop revenue generating strategies. 

 

Anders Erlandsson, Senior Advisor, Ericsson Consumer Lab, said, “Our in-depth interviews, especially those in the US, which is a frontrunner in TV/video consumer trends show how social media usage is impacting viewing. The majority of families combined TV viewing with the use of Twitter, Facebook, texting, voice calls and forum discussions about what they watched. This is particularly the case when watching reality shows and sports. This communication adds another dimension to the TV experience, as consumers found an annoying reality show funnier when they were able to comment on social media about ‘terrible’ singers, ‘ugly’ clothing or when your favourite team scores a goal.”

The Dismal Jobs Report Is Not Important! January 7, 2011

Being Street Smart

Sy Harding

The Dismal Jobs Report Is Not Important! January 7, 2011.

Another month – another disappointment in the employment picture.

But it doesn’t matter!  The economic recovery continues. Employment is a lagging indicator.

A month ago the consensus forecast was that 155,000 new jobs were created in November. When the November jobs report was released in early December it was terrible, showing that only 39,000 jobs were created. (The economy needs approximately 150,000 new jobs monthly just to keep up with the growing population). It was also reported that the already high unemployment rate ticked up from 9.6% to 9.8% in November.

A month later, with the economy continuing to improve, the consensus estimate has been that 175,000 new jobs were created in December.

Wrong again. The report this morning was that only 103,000 new jobs were created in December. The consensus estimate was also that the unemployment rate would hold steady at 9.8%. That was also wrong. The unemployment rate fell quite dramatically to 9.4% (but that was probably due to so many unemployed people giving up on finding a job).

For many years I’ve called the Labor Department’s monthly employment report the Big One among economic reports. Not because it’s more important than other reports, because it is not – but because it is impossible to forecast and therefore has the record for most often coming in with a surprise in one direction or the other.

It’s also the big one because the financial media holds the report up as an important leading indicator of the economy – which it also is not.

Employment is a lagging indicator. Employers do not hire additional full-time employees until after the economy has recovered so much that their present employees cannot keep up with improved business. That, by the way, makes a number within this morning’s report particularly telling, and that is that the average workweek for all employees held steady at 34.3 hours in December. Employers normally increase the hours for existing employees before hiring more workers.

Employment therefore lags behind the economy and is not of near as much importance as the media places on it.

The leading indicators of the economy are measurements of consumer activity, obvious since consumer spending accounts for 65% of the U.S. economy. That makes retail sales, home sales, auto sales, consumer sentiment, factory orders and the like much more indicative of the economic recovery than the employment reports.

And those consumer-related indications continue to improve. Among reports of recent weeks that came in better than forecasts were consumer sentiment, retail sales, home sales, construction spending, auto sales, factory orders, the ISM Mfg Index, the ISM Non-Mfg (service sector) Index, and so on.

Additionally, the disappointing jobs report will provide the Federal Reserve, which also overemphasizes the employment picture as an important indicator, with reason to continue with its quantitative easing program, additional fuel for the economy.

So, the economic recovery is continuing, which bodes well for the stock market in 2011, the usually positive third-year of the presidential cycle.

But that does not mean investors can relax just yet.

Short-term, the stock market is overbought, and investor sentiment is at high levels of bullishness and complacency usually seen at rally tops.

The disappointing jobs report could have the effect of providing the catalyst for the stock market to correct enough to alleviate that overbought condition and cool investor sentiment off to a healthier level.

Introduction

This report provides an overview of the major competitive trends during 2010 and what the top 10 global players, including Pictet, RBC, HSBC, UBS, Credit Suisse and Wells Fargo; were doing in terms of their positioning.

* Find out what trends will be shaping the
competitive strategies of wealth managers over the coming year.

Highlights

With all of the threats – be they regulatory, economic, or financial – that can potentially impact upon other banking activities, many of the leading banking groups around the world prioritized growth in the wealth management market as a key part of their overall strategies in the lead up to 2010 and beyond.
With the credit crisis and global recession having a hugely negative effect on the financial services market in 2009, announcements concerning M&A, partnership agreements, and organic growth tapered off. The higher pace of such developments in 2010 means that wealth managers have shifted competitive strategies back to a more normal footing.
In order to combat commoditization, private banks and wealth managers of all types will engage in greater customer segmentation, setting up specialized teams and services designed to appeal to certain ethnic, geographic, national, professional, and social groups.

Your key questions answered

* What will be the major trends affecting competition in 2011?
* What geographies experienced the most staffing changes in 2010?
