In fact I’m expecting it. People accuse me of heresy and say I should be strung up but I don’t care if inflation gets to 4 per cent because we have got such a brittle economy.”JAMES HUGHES | CMC MARKETS“The fact that the US has now had to do more – not necessarily normal quantitative easing, but a form of stimulus – means that a lot of people think it’s inevitable that the UK and Europe will have to go the same way. If the vote started to move that way, it would not be too much of a surpise.”MICHAEL SAUNDERS | CITIGROUP“Last week’s inflation report did not imply that further quantitative easing (QE) is needed. If the MPC did want to add extra stimulus then QE may not be the most effective way. They’re able to add stimulus simply by forecasting that inflation will be below target, which allows them to give the signal of low rates for an extended period.” whatsapp Sunday 15 August 2010 10:51 pm KCS-content Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofThe Truth About Bottled Water – Get the Facts on Drinking Bottled WaterGayot Tags: NULLlast_img read more

They also disclosed the largest amount of information regarding carbon reduction plans.Other large companies to contribute to the report, included Tesco, BT, BSkyB and Shell.The annual carbon report is funded by over 500 banks and institutional investors.

Rio Tinto in $3.1bn expansion

first_img Global miner Rio Tinto approved a $3.1bn (£1.9bn) iron ore expansion, staking a claim to become the world’s top producer and defying industry concerns over a new Australian mining tax.Iron ore miners are ramping up production to meet booming demand from Asia, with most of the growth in output set to come from Australia where two of the world’s biggest producers, Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton, dominate.Rio Tinto’s move to boost output by 28 per cent follows this week’s demise of a planned joint venture with BHP Billiton in northwest Australia’s Pilbara region aimed at saving the companies $10bn in costs. Wednesday 20 October 2010 2:49 am John Dunne BHP Billiton unveiled a six per cent rise in quarterly iron ore output on Wednesday and is also planning to expand its Australian iron ore operations to meet booming Asian demand.Rio Tinto’s announcement, combined with BHP Billiton’s production surge, eclipsed news reports on Wednesday that suggested they and other miners risked being double-taxed under Australia’s proposed 30 per cent tax on iron ore and coal. whatsapp Share center_img Tags: NULL whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Read This NextThe Truth About Bottled Water – Get the Facts on Drinking Bottled WaterGayotRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

More than half of MGM’s individual debt holders voted to approve the Spyglass plan that will place the US firm’s co-founders Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum as co-chief executives of MGM. The creditors rejected a rival offer from Canadian film producer Lionsgate, owned by billionaire Carl Icahn who already has an $800m (£499m) stake in MGM’s debts.MGM had been struggling with $4bn (£2.5bn) debts due to poor box office returns and a slump in DVD sales. The deal allows lenders to restructure the deficit and exchange $4bn in debt for equity in the company upon its emergence from Chapter 11 bankruptcy.Under new direction from Spyglass, MGM will look to produce fewer big budget films in order to put the studio on a secure financial footing.MGM said in a statement that creditors had “overwhelmingly approved its proposed plan of reorganisation” under the Spyglass deal.Securing an agreement for the struggling studio will mean that production of several big budget films, including the 23rd James Bond picture, can resume.

Smiths makes explosives detectors which are widely used in America, where regulations that came into force on 1 August 2010 say that 100 per cent of cargo must be screened for explosives, although up to 25 per cent of cargo is currently untested. A spokesman for Smiths Group said: “The industry as a whole has been pressing for explosives screening to be extended to air cargo for some time. This latest incident illustrates that merely checking that freight matches its inventory – the most common current practice – is not enough. “Stricter, standardised regulations on screening air freight for explosives should be applied internationally.” The home secretary hinted that stricted regulations could soon come into force in the UK.The share price of courier UPS, on whose planes the bombs were found, ticked higher in early trading onwall Street, regaining some of the losses it suffered at the end of last week.

Hiscox warns on impact of mild storms

first_img Monday 8 November 2010 9:24 pm whatsapp Show Comments ▼ KCS-content Share whatsapp BERMUDA-based insurer Hiscox saw premiums remain largely flat in its third quarter trading update but warned that pricing pressure later this year will come to bear, particularly in the US. The firm yesterday blamed a lack of severe summer hurricanes for the likelihood of hot competition during the January policy renewal period.In years with a large number of hurricanes, less well-financed insurers are driven out of the market due to pay-outs to policyholders, but in milder years they remain capitalised and compete on pricing. Overall, written premiums shrank very slightly by 0.6 per cent to £1.2bn, with Hiscox London seeing the largest drop: premiums fell 13.9 per cent to £495.8m. Third-quarter investment returns were strong at 3.2 per cent, with Hiscox citing the prospect of low interest rates into next year as driving up corporate bonds and equities. However, the firm plans to reduce its exposure to non-government debt and is monitoring its government bonds closely.Analysts reacted largely positively: Numis’ Nick Johnson maintains a “hold” rating but suggests that Hiscox’s current share price around 350p could be a good buying opportunity. And finnCap’s Charles Coyne recommends a “buy”, saying that the firm is successfully reducing its concentration in more difficult areas such as US property. Sales for the first nine months of 2010 were £1.2bn, broadly unchanged on the period last year, the company said. Hiscox warns on impact of mild storms FAST FACTS | HISCOXHiscox provides home insurance for 40,000 UK?homes and other insurance for over 100,000 small and medium-sized UK businesses.Originally based at Lloyds, it has grown into a FTSE?250 firm with a presence in 13 countries.ANALYST VIEWS:?Is hiscox a good buy given its third- quarter statement?Interviews by Juliet SamuelJOY FERNEYHOUGH | EXECUTION NOBLEHiscox has already stated it intends to reduce capacity next year in order to be disciplined on price and with the high net worth business continuing to thrive we continue to believe its stock remains the cleanest ‘buy’ story.CHARLES COYNE | FINNCAPAn investment return of 3.2 per cent may not look spectacular but it is acceptable in the insurance segment where returns are de minimis [minimal] in the bond market. Hiscox may cash in its chips here.NICK JOHNSON | NUMISThe shares have recently slipped back towards the bottom of the 12-month trading range and now trade at a price-to-net-asset ratio of 1.13 times. We see this as good value for a high-quality name such as Hiscox. Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Dozens were injured as protestors threw smoke bombs and firecrackers and fought baton-wielding police in running street battles in the historic city centre. The result underlined Berlusconi’s reputation as one of the great survivors of Italian politics, but left him unable to ensure the stability of the government at a time of major economic problems and a menacing Eurozone debt crisis.The no-confidence motion, brought by the centre-left opposition, was defeated by 314 votes to 311, and vote counting in the chamber was briefly interrupted by a scuffle between deputies from rival camps.The result was secured after a fevered campaign of back room deals.
