Arm Wrestle For Auto

Arm Wrestle For Auto

What’s Going On Here?

Chip design heavyweight Arm thinks its next juicy bulking opportunity lies in the auto market.

What Does This Mean?

Arm designs the chips found in smartphones across the world, but it’s the car chip segment that’s really booming right now – and the company seems to have realized which side its bread is buttered on. After all, carmakers need an increasing number of top-dollar chips for everything from electrification to driver assistance systems, so it's no surprise that the auto chip market is set to double by 2027. What’s more, the average value of chips in each car is expected to rise a mouth-watering 60% in the next five years. But money that big never goes unchallenged: so, sure, Arm’s in an enviable position, with the top 15 auto chipmakers already using its designs – but tech powerhouses like Intel and MIPS are raring for a slice of the pie too, and they’re not likely to give Arm a walkover.

Why Should I Care?

Zooming in: Pulling out all the stops.
Cornering the auto market would be a big deal for Arm. See, the company's owner SoftBank is gearing up to list the firm on the stock market this year, and any extra oomph could help attract investors at just the right time. That prospect has Arm working hard on new chip designs, and in a bid to snag more customers, it’s even letting chipmakers test them out before committing to a license.

Zooming out: China bows out.
While Arm’s looking for new growth, it seems like China is taking a step back. According to reports out on Wednesday, the government’s putting a hold on the massive cash injections earmarked for building a world-class chip industry – a sign of the strain that Covid and other issues have put on government funds. Just one example: the fiscal deficit, or the difference between government revenue and spending, hit a record high last year.

Can An AI Tool Help You Beat The Market?

Can An AI Tool Help You Beat The Market?

By Russell Burns, Analyst

Forget about how Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools might upend the world of student essay writing.

The big news is that AI can now transform the way retail investors pick stocks, giving them the kinds of tools that used to be available only to deep-pocketed hedge funds and other institutional investors. 

So I’ve taken a look at a new AI-driven analytics tool to see how it works.

That’s today’s Insight: how AI could improve the way you invest.

Britain’s Uncertainty Express

Britain’s Uncertainty Express

What’s Going On Here?

The UK government unveiled some much-trumpeted big plans on Wednesday, designed to get the country’s economy back on track.

What Does This Mean?

It's been a rough ride for the UK government lately: after botching its budget back in fall, it lost the trust of everyone from investors to citizens – and since then, it’s watched helplessly as the economy slipped into what’s probably a recession. Plus, folks across the country are being squeezed by record-high living costs, prompting nation-shaking strikes in crucial industries like rail and healthcare. Little wonder the opposition party is leading in the polls.

Now, the government has set out a list of top priorities in an attempt to get things chugging along again: it’s aiming to halve inflation this year, boost the economy, and reduce public debt by the end of this parliament's term – 2025, at the latest.

Why Should I Care?

Zooming in: This could be a nothingburger.
The government's plan might sound decent, but when you actually peek under the lid, things aren't quite so peachy. First off, these goals aren't exactly ambitious: economists are already predicting that inflation will halve this year, and the Bank of England’s expecting the economy to grow by 2024 anyway – even under its worst case scenario. And as for that public debt pledge – to make it happen, the government is either going to have to bring in more revenue (aka raise taxes) or cut spending. Try selling that to hard-up Brits.

The bigger picture: Misery loves company.
2023's not looking too good for the UK economy, with economists predicting it'll be hit with one of the worst recessions in the whole G7. But hey, at least Britain won't be alone in that boat: the IMF’s warned that a third of the globe’s economies and half of the EU will be dealing with a recession this year. So, you know, at least there's that.
