There's some good news and some bad news here from the Office for National Statistics.The good news is that we, as a nation, are really getting it together when it comes to doing our Christmas shopping in advance.The bad news is we're doing it really far in advance in November, on Black Friday, and are therefore contributing to the dramatic erosion of the high street retailers.The ONS says Black Friday is now the official start of the Christmas buying season for us, as we spread our festive purchasing out more thinly over November and December now, rather than make the traditional dash to Argos on December 24.The total volume of UK retail sales actually managed to fall during last December – by 0.9 per cent – with the timeshifted earlier Christmas Day of Black Friday on November 23 this year pushing November to a 1.3 per cent rise.Obviously these things do not cancel each other out, as Black Friday is the time of super cheap, margin-smashing discounts, so the tiny additional profits made during November's virtual trolley dashes are not as useful for the real world retailers as our traditional December weekend department store trudges of old.

Huawei says it expects 2018 sales revenue to rise by a fifth despite a difficult year in which governments around the world increased their scrutiny of the company’s role in their telecommunications networks.The Chinese firm has agreed 26 commercial contracts for 5G, and has shipped more than 10,000 5G base stations, while it has also shipped more than 200 million smartphones.The critical and commercial success of the Huawei P20 has helped Huawei overtake Apple to become the world’s second largest mobile phone manufacturer.This performance, combined with ongoing investments in cloud and software, means Huawei anticipates a 21 per cent rise in annual turnover to $108.5 billion.Rotating Chairman Guo Ping said it would press ahead with its product roadmap and would overcome any challenges it faces from governments and regulators.We will keep our policy consistent especially for our US suppliers and firmly collaborate with them for shared success.”

A lawsuit accusing Tesla of inflating its stock by pitching unattainable production numbers for its Model 3 sedan has been dismissed by a US judge in California.In a decision published late last night, US district judge Charles Breyer said shareholders had not provided enough evidence to suggest Tesla needed to be clearer that Model 3 production could fail to reach its high targets.Chief executive Elon Musk unveiled the Model 3 in March 2016 to widespread public approval, pitching it as an affordable electric car for everyday users.However, Tesla experienced a number of setbacks when manufacturing the cars, turning to quick-fix measures such as building an extra tent at its Fremont factory site and dismissing nine per cent of its salaried staff to cut back on costs.The company received deposits from more than 500,000 customers after the car formally launched in July 2017, largely powering a 62 per cent rise in its share price to date since its 2016 reveal.The news lightens the pressure on Musk at a time when Tesla faces a number of separate lawsuits and a federal investigation into whether he misled shareholders about having secured funding to take Tesla off the public stock market.
