The broker added that Old Mutual “offers attractive emerging market growth superior to most European peers, with a competitive progressive dividend policy supported by cash earnings”. TETHYS PETROLEUMCantor Fitzgerald is keeping its recommendation and target price for the oil firm under review, following the news that Nostrum has pulled out of the race to buy it. The broker said the group is underfunded to carry out its short-term strategy in Kazakhstan, and with debt on the balance sheet, “it is looking increasingly likely that the company will need further injections of liquidity sooner rather than later”. TED BAKERCanaccord Genuity reiterated its “buy” recommendation on the retailer, following its interims which showed growing global traction. The broker said it is “sanguine on an August retail performance that fell shy of management’s expectations, especially with September broadly back in line with expectations”, adding: “We remain long-term fans and advocates.”  whatsapp whatsapplast_img read more

Do drug makers have an obligation to warn consumers about possible risks in languages besides English?This is a key question being raised by an interesting case in California, where an appeals court has just reinstated a lawsuit brought by four people who claim they have the right to sue GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) because they read and speak only Armenian. As a result, they argue they were not aware of the warnings issued about the Avandia diabetes pill until long after Glaxo did so, and a deadline for filing a lawsuit arguably expired.last_img read more

It is not the only way out.“I thought my problems were the worst problems in the world. Life is too easy to lose and you can’t throw it all away on a split second decision.“It was only in the days after that I realised how many people are there and care for you. At the time you don’t think it but everyone cares.“You don’t realise it but you would be an incredible loss to everyone in the community.“At the time I felt there was no other way out.

I know there are other lads my age who think they can’t talk, think they have nowhere to go or think they will be judged for mental health problems.“But it is 2018 and things have changed. People’s opinions and perceptions of mental health have changed.“My main objective of this is that I want people to know that it is not the answer.

Effects from tighter U.S. monetary policy likely limited for sovereigns: Moody’s

Related news Sovereign downgrades to follow Covid-19: Fitch Share this article and your comments with peers on social media “The recent market volatility indicates some nervousness among investors about the consequences of U.S. monetary tightening,” says Lúcio Vinhas de Souza, Moody’s managing director and sovereign chief economist. “However, while this tightening will present short-run challenges for particular countries, over the longer term the adjustment in financial markets should facilitate a relatively swift return to previous growth trajectories.” The report notes that recent movements in financial market prices could be negative for a number of foreign countries, “although the precise impact will depend on financial and economic linkages with the U.S., and how domestic policymakers respond,” it says. “In particular, the impact of potential capital outflows will depend on the nature of a country’s monetary policy regime, and the nature of domestic borrowing.” Moody’s says its analysis suggests that developing economies that were receiving significant capital inflows prior to the tightening in monetary conditions are most vulnerable to reversals in capital flows. “However, in the medium-term improved competitiveness from currency depreciations and greater demand for exports from a stronger U.S. economy will mitigate the negative effects of tapering,” it says. It also observes that the impact on the creditworthiness of private sector issuers within countries, such as riskier banks or corporate borrowers “is likely to be more pronounced.” Stranded assets a downgrade risk in a low-carbon economy Keywords Sovereign rating The impact of tighter U.S. monetary policy on the creditworthiness of other sovereigns may be negative, but should be short-lived, says Moody’s Investors Service in a new report.

However, it notes that the overall credit implications of tighter U.S. monetary policy are likely “to be limited and temporary at the sovereign level.” Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Fitch drops Canada’s AAA rating James Langton read more

Moderately positive 2017 expected for Canada

first_img Stagflation is U.S. economists’ biggest fear, SIFMA says Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Related news OECD raises outlook for Canadian economic growth this year Canada’s economy and financial markets will be helped by moderate improvement in oil prices and reasonable growth in the U.S. economy but hindered by Canadian consumer debt levels in 2017, according to Toronto-based Russell Investments Canada Ltd.’s 2017 Global Market Outlook, which was relelased on Tuesday. Tessie Sanci “For that reason, we expect domestic equities to be positive, but without the exuberance of 2016,” says Shailesh Kshatriya, director of Canadian strategies at Russell Investments Canada, in a statement. “On balance, we see 2017 economic growth in the range of 1.6% to 2%.” Meanwhile, Canadian 10-year bond yields are expected to head slightly higher and trade within a range of 1.5% and 1.9% by the end of 2017, the report states. “With our anticipation that the U.S. Federal Reserve [Board] will raise the federal funds rate, potentially as many as three times by the end of 2017,” Kshatriya explains, “we believe the upward bias in the U.S. yields could help pull domestic yields higher.” The Bank of Canada’s overnight interest rate will remain steady, the report predicts. Although the central bank entertained the notion of an interest rate cut in its October 2016 meeting, current market conditions may leave such a move ineffective, the report states. “Cutting rates in the near term, while recession probabilities are low, is a view that is difficult to reconcile,” says Kshatriya. “As such, we expect the central bank will keep their target rate steady at 0.5% in 2017.” On a global scale, Russell’s investment strategists warn of a challenging market environment. Global economic growth is likely to improve in the short term as political leaders move away from austerity and into providing fiscal stimulus. However, the growing emphasis on trade protectionism that helped lead to the U.K.’s successful vote to leave the European Union and the election of Donald Trump in the U.S. could lead to slower growth and higher inflation in the long term.

(May 21, 2019) – Portland Cider Co., which is known for making cider based on English traditions with Northwest ingredients, has announced the release of six of its most popular ciders in 19.2-ounce cans. The single serving ciders are ideal for a 20-ounce imperial pint glass, known in the U.K. as a “proper pint.”The products available in the new size include Portland Cider’s two original flagships, Kinda Dry and Sorta Sweet; its fruity Sangria, made with seven different Northwest-grown fruits; Hop’ Rageous, featuring Citra and Amarillo hops; Concord Grape, the company’s popular winter seasonal which will now be available year-round; and Pineapple Rosé, Portland Cider’s current seasonal that’s bursting with juicy, fresh pineapples and a touch of Oregon blueberry juice.When co-owners Jeff and Lynda Parrish began exploring new packaging formats, they questioned why a 19.2-ounce can even existed, as it seemed like such a random size. They then discovered the can originated in Europe for the conversion to a proper pint.“Portland Cider is an English cider company at our core,” explained Lynda Parrish, who grew up in the Somerset region of the United Kingdom. “So offering our customers a proper pint of proper cider made a lot of sense.”“Who doesn’t like more?” added co-owner Jeff Parrish. “This is the most exciting release we’ve made here at Portland Cider in awhile.

News / TSA carriers reapply cancelled surcharges for congested US west coast ports

first_imgBut it added that the line reserved the “right to implement again with immediate effect”.And now, according to a customer advisory from Evergreen, seen by The Loadstar, and anecdotal reports from shippers, it seems that the carriers intend to reintroduce congestion surcharges of around $800 per 20ft and $1,000 per 40ft to shippers – but  significantly, only when export cargo is received on the quay either in Asia or the US.This may not be the end of the story, however, because the FMC said it intended to investigate the cause of the congestion, which has impacted the two biggest US gateway ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and led to waiting times of several days for ships at anchor in San Pedro Bay.The justification given by carriers for the surcharge is that the congestion is a direct consequence of “labour-related terminal delays”, but FMC Commissioner William Doyle said last week that ocean carriers had had “a substantial hand in the formation of port congestion”.Commissioner Doyle said that, in his view, there were three reasons causing congestion at US west coast ports: the use of bigger ships on the tradelane causing volume surges; the decision by carriers to no longer provide chassis; and the bunching of vessels caused by poor schedule integrity.He believed “ocean carriers should not be adding surcharges for port congestion under any circumstance, now or in the foreseeable future”.Meanwhile, following the expiration of the labour contract on 1 July, negotiations for a new deal between the terminal operator and shipping line representatives and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union have stalled and are unlikely to resume until after the Thanksgiving holiday in early December. By Mike Wackett 24/11/2014 After withdrawing port congestion surcharges last Wednesday – two days after they had been implemented – ocean carrier members of the TSA are preparing to reinstate them for troubled US west coast facilities.Carriers in the Transpacific Stabilisation Agreement cancelled the surcharges to be applied on all cargo following a challenge from the US Federal Maritime Commission on their legality.The FMC argued that the surcharges couldn’t be applied to cargo already in transit and on the water. There was also strong criticism from shippers’ councils.The carriers appeared to back down and a customer advisory from MSC announcing the cancellation of the surcharge said: “We recognise the concern there is in the market as to how this charge is applied.”last_img read more
