A government drive to increase small businesses' access to credit has seen improvements, but many still report difficulties. According to BoE data published in September, Lloyds had drawn 23 billion pounds under the extension followed by Santander, with 3.18 billion pounds.

RBC Capital’s Amit Daryanani indicates that what had been though to be a “supercycle” for the iPhone is now a “super-long cycle” as sales continue into consecutive quarters. Shares of Apple Inc. (AAPL) traded flat Monday despite a bullish note from one team of analysts on the Street suggesting that investors shouldn’t be too concerned over lower sales volume for iPhones in the next few years. Despite the recent reports, the RBC analyst sees no reason for analysts to sell shares, writing that “the bull case on AAPL is more powerful today vs. 90-days ago as we morph from a ‘supercycle’ (20%+ unit growth) thesis to a ‘super-long’ cycle where units/revenues/EPS should grow double digit in FY18 and FY19.” Daryanani says Apple is on track to achieve earnings per share (EPS) of at least $11 in FY18 and potentially over $12 EPS in FY19, “driven by—Higher Average Selling Prices (ASPs), Higher Gross-margins but lower units (vs.
