(Bloomberg) -- Major cities across Taiwan, home to some of the world’s biggest chip industry players, were hit by a widespread power outage Thursday after a power station in the southern city of Kaohsiung suddenly went offline.The outage hit parts of Taipei and Kaohsiung as well as Tainan, home to a science park housing facilities of companies such as Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. and Innolux Corp., according to the Taipei-based Apple Daily newspaper. Taipower, the nation’s major provider of electricity, said power supply returned to normal at 8:00 p.m. local time.Some TSMC facilities experienced a brief power dip but the power supply is currently normal, the company said in an emailed statement. Operations at ASE Technology Holding Co., the world’s largest chip packaging and testing services provider, had been affected, the company said in a text message, but the full impact was yet to be determined.All three major science parks throughout Taiwan were at least partly impacted, the Ministry of Science and Technology said in a statement. Employees and shoppers reported outages had affected offices and department stores in Taipei City.Four units at the Hsinta plant coal- and gas-fired plant stopped generating power shortly after 2:30 p.m., according to a text message from the government’s public warning system. Taiwan’s water shortage was one of the key reasons behind the slow return of power, Economics Minister Wang Mei-hua said at a briefing late on Thursday.Almost 6.2 million households would be affected by three rounds of power cuts between 3pm and 5:30pm, the state-run utility Taiwan Power Co. said in a text message.(Updates with Taipower resuming supply in second paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg) -- U.S. stocks snapped a three-day slide, with the technology sector leading the rebound. Bond yields, the dollar and crude oil all declined, reversing Wednesday’s increases. The benchmark S&P 500 rose after posting its biggest one-day drop since February on Wednesday. The tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 also pushed higher, led by Apple and Advance Micro Devices. A report earlier showed producer prices increased by more than forecast in April, and jobless claims fell. Bitcoin dropped to around $50,000 as Tesla suspended purchases using the cryptocurrency.“Taking a step back from inflation, the fact that jobless claims hit another pandemic-era low suggests we’re inching even closer to full reopening, which is no doubt a good thing,” said Mike Loewengart, managing director of investment strategy at E*Trade Financial.U.S. Producer Prices Top Forecasts, Adding to Inflation PressureConfidence that reigned supreme until two weeks ago on the U.S. economy and continued Federal Reserve stimulus has been jolted in the past week with non-farm payrolls falling far short of expectations and inflation rising by the most since 2009. While some investors insist the surge in consumer prices is a one-off reopening burst, the broader markets are hedging against the possibility it may persist and force the Fed to consider tapering its stimulus.“Markets have lost a little bit of confidence that the Fed has control of inflation” and the concern was that the central bank might wait too long to address the rise, Victoria Fernandez, Crossmark Global Investments chief market strategist, said on Bloomberg TV. “I am not sure the market is extremely comfortable with that at this point.”Tesla gained even after Elon Musk tweeted that Tesla will no longer accept the digital currency for vehicle purchases due to environmental concerns.Alibaba dropped after reporting fourth-quarter results. While revenue beat estimates, the company posted a net loss after an antitrust fine.In Europe, earnings disappointments sent the benchmark gauge lower. BT Group Plc dropped 6% as it missed estimates.

(Bloomberg) -- Prices paid to U.S. producers rose in April by more than forecast, adding to signs of a growing wave of inflationary pressure that’s extending to American consumers.The producer price index for final demand increased 0.6% from the prior month after a 1% gain in March, according to data from the Labor Department Thursday. Excluding volatile food and energy components, the so-called core PPI advanced 0.7%.A Bloomberg survey of economists called for a 0.3% monthly gain in the overall measure and a 0.4% rise in the core figure. The April advance was broad across both goods and services. The S&P 500 rose in early trading, while the yield on the 10-year Treasury note eased.As production costs continue to climb, a report Wednesday showed consumer prices are following suit, stoking the flames of an already heated debate about the path and durability of inflation that the Federal Reserve views as temporary.The PPI tracks changes in production costs, and supply bottlenecks and shortages tied to the pandemic recovery have caused commodity prices to soar. At the same time, labor costs have begun picking up. Together, the increases represent a threat to profit margins unless companies pass along the higher costs and boost productivity.Fed officials have said price pressures from pent-up demand and bottlenecks will likely prove temporary, but many others expect the pickup in inflation to prove more lasting.“There is more inflation coming,” Luca Zaramella, chief financial officer at Mondelez International Inc., said on the food and beverage maker’s April 27 earnings call. “The higher inflation will require some additional pricing and some additional productivities to offset the impact.”Consumer InflationWednesday’s data -- which showed the strongest monthly gain in the overall consumer price index since 2009 -- suggest companies are passing along at least some of the input-price inflation. The report also showed record monthly price surges in airfares and hotel stays, reflecting the impact from a broader reopening of the economy.The annual advance in the overall PPI accelerated to a 6.2% gain, a figure biased higher by the fact that it was compared to the very low reading seen in April 2020. The increase was the largest in data back to 2010.A separate Labor Department report Thursday showed applications for regular state unemployment benefits declined for a second week, to a fresh pandemic low. A slew of states have recently announced intentions to stop federal pandemic relief programs prior to their expiry in September.Producer prices excluding food, energy, and trade services -- a measure often preferred by economists because it strips out the most volatile components -- jumped 0.7% from the prior month and increased 4.6% from a year earlier.While the advance was broad-based across goods and services, about two-thirds of the monthly gain can be attributed to the 0.6% gain in prices for final demand services, the Labor Department said. The indexes for portfolio management, airline passenger services, food retailing, physician care and building materials and supply retailing all moved higher.The advance in the goods index reflected an 18.4% jump in prices received for steel mill products as well as increases in the prices for a variety of meat, residential natural gas, plastic resins and materials, and dairy products.Michael Hsu, chief executive officer at consumer-product maker Kimberly-Clark Corp., said in April that the maker of Scott toilet paper and Huggies diapers is “moving rapidly especially with selling price increases to offset commodity headwinds.”(Adds markets in third paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Could this LEGO set BE any cooler? Fans of Friends can now build the apartments from the iconic Warner Bros. TV series and recreate their favourite scenes. The 2,048-piece set, features both Monica and Rachel's, and Chandler and Joey's, New York apartments, plus the adjoining hallway. Following the hugely popular LEGO Ideas Central Perk set, which was released in 2019, the LEGO Friends Apartments set is complete with iconic features and props, such as the classic moment when Monica put the Thanksgiving turkey on her head, the one where Joey and Chandler only had a canoe as furniture and when Phoebe's dollhouse went up in flames. Other accessories from the show include the giant poking device; Gladys, Phoebe's creepy art piece; the cheesecake that falls on the floor; Pat the Dog; the chick and duck, and many more. The set also gives fans the real sense of the original filming studio with set lights, and allows you to display both apartments either separately or linked together with the hallway. Additional features of the set include new minifigures of the whole gang in some of their most memorable outfits - Rachel's iconic plaid skirt; Ross' too tight leather pants; Monica in an apron; Phoebe in a classic floral look; Chandler in a suit and loud designer tie; and Joey wearing all of Chandler's clothes. And for the first time ever, Janice will also feature as a minifigure in a classic over-the-top gaudy outfit. Anderson Ward Grubb, LEGO Set Designer commented: "Following the success of the LEGO Ideas Central Perk set, we wanted to develop another tribute to this iconic TV show with a focus on the famous apartments. We worked directly from production photos of the set as well as watching and re-watching a lot of episodes so we could capture as many iconic moments as possible. "One fun challenge was figuring out how to represent some aspects that change over the course of the show that appear in some episodes and not in others. I am looking forward to seeing if the eagle-eyed fans will spot them." LEGO® The Friends Apartments set is available exclusively for LEGO VIP members from 19th May and from LEGO Stores and www.LEGO.com/Friends-Apartments from 1st June 2021.
