Elon Musk exercises Tesla options for 175,000 fresh shares


This news was published by : MARKETWATCH exactly at 2 hours 40 min ago

Tesla Inc. Chief Executive Elon Musk exercised options on 175,000 shares in the automobile company, adding to his stake at prices less than one-third the going rate. Musk's options on more than 5 million Tesla shares matured years ago, and he previously exercised more than 500,000 options at a lower price. According to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Musk exercised the fresh shares Monday at a price of $31.17, paying the cost of exercising the options -- nearly $5.5 million -- as well as the taxes without selling other shares. Musk still has access to about 4.6 million vested options, according to the SEC filing, and they expire in a little more than three years. Before Monday's option exercise, Musk owned 19.5% of Tesla stock, according to FactSet. Tesla stock closed Tuesday at $205.08, after declining about 29% in the past 12 months.

Bloomberg: US May Pay $2 Per Bushel for Soybeans to Help Farmers


This news was published by : Voice of America -Economy exactly at Tue, 05/21/2019 - 22:33
The Trump administration is considering payments of $2 per bushel for soybeans, 63 cents per bushel for wheat and 4 cents per bushel for corn as part of a package of up to $20 billion to offset U.S. farmers' losses from the trade war with China, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday. Caitlin Eannello, spokeswoman for the National Association of Wheat Growers, said that 63 cents per bushel for wheat is the number the organization has been hearing for the next round of U.S. trade aid. "That is the number that we've been hearing, she told Reuters. Those payments would exceed the rates paid last year to farmers in a similar aid package. President Donald Trump earlier this month directed the Department of Agriculture to work on a new aid plan for farmers as Washington and Beijing intensified their 10-month-old trade war by raising tariffs on each other's goods. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue last week said the new aid package was likely to be $15 billion to $20 billion, exceeding the up to $12 billion in aid rolled out last year to farmers. Most of it was likely to be direct payments, sources told Reuters. A spokeswoman for the Department of Agriculture said the details of the aid package would be released soon, without commenting on the reported payment rates. One lobbyist source said the plan was likely to be announced this week. The USDA spokeswoman added that the aid was designed to avoid skewing planting decisions. "Farmers should continue to make their planting and production decisions with the current market signals in mind, rather than some expectation of what a trade mitigation program might or might not look like," she said in emailed comments to Reuters. However, the aid was seen encouraging more soy planting at a time when supplies are already at record-high levels. "That [proposed $2 bean payout] is a pretty enticing carrot, and that tells me that they [farmers] are going to try to get as many bean acres in as possible, at the expense of corn," said Matt Connelly, analyst at the Hightower Report in Chicago. "The reason is beans [futures] went south is, they saw that $2 a bushel, and that will entice them to plant beans until the July 4th weekend." Chicago Board of Trade soybean futures turned lower on the report on worries that farmers would plant more of the crop. Top importer China continues to shun U.S. soybeans. The administration last year paid $1.65 per bushel for soybeans, 14 cents per bushel for wheat and 1 cent per bushel for corn. Negotiations between the United States and China have soured dramatically since early May, when Chinese officials sought major changes to the text of a proposed deal that the Trump administration says had been largely agreed. The dispute between the world's two largest economies has cost billions, roiled global supply chains and rattled financial markets. American farmers, who helped carry Trump to his surprise 2016 election win, have been among the hardest hit. Bloomberg, citing anonymous sources, said growers of other commodities were also to receive payments in this year’s aid package, but it did not provide rates. It said the plan could change as Trump could make adjustments. The Trump administration wants any trade deal with China to include purchases of more than $1.2 trillion worth of American products, including agricultural commodities and industrial goods.

New Coke, an Infamous Blunder, Is Making a Return to Celebrate ‘Stranger Things’ Season 3


This news was published by : TIME BUSINESS exactly at Tue, 05/21/2019 - 22:12

(NEW YORK) — Coca-Cola drinkers will get a chance to relive one of the company’s darker chapters as New Coke makes a comeback under a partnership with the Netflix drama “Stranger Things,” the companies announced Tuesday.

Season 3 of the show will take place in the summer of 1985, when Coca-Cola changed its formula for Coke. New Coke was considered one of the biggest marketing blunders of all time and the new version was dropped after 79 days, though sales of the original Coca-Cola rebounded.

“The summer of 1985 did in fact change everything for us with the introduction of New Coke, which was also arguably one of the biggest pop culture moments of that year,” said Oana

Vlad, director of Coca-Cola Trademark, Coca-Cola North America.

Workers had to retrieve the New Coke recipe from the safe for the “Stranger Things” partnership.

“All told, everything took about six months and was top secret,” said Peter Shoemaker, director of sparkling category commercialization.

Workers also had to recreate the logo and the slightly different Coke red for the cans from more than 30 years ago.

“The partnership with Coke gives Netflix the opportunity to reach a massive audience via one of the most recognizable brands in the world in a deeply authentic way,” said Netflix Head of Global Partner Marketing Barry Smyth.

Beginning Thursday, Coca-Cola will release a limited number of cans of New Coke as part of a “Stranger Things” package. An “upside-down” Stranger Things-inspired vending machine will also pop up in select cities this summer to dispense free cans of New Coke for a limited time.

Stocks stage comeback as Dow ends nearly 200 points higher


This news was published by : MARKETWATCH exactly at Tue, 05/21/2019 - 22:03

U.S. stocks ended solidly higher Tuesday after equity investors were buoyed by Washington's decision to grant a temporary reprieve on restrictions to China telecom giant Huawei Technologies Co.. The S&P 500 climbed 0.9% to finish near 2,864. The Dow Jones Industrial Average advanced 198 points, or 0.8%, to end around 25,877. The Nasdaq Composite climbed 1.1% to finish around 7,786. Equities rebounded from Monday's selloff in technology and chip-maker stocks after U.S. officials said they would give a 90-day exception to an export blacklist against Huawei, which has been in the cross sights of Washington. However, Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei said his company would outmuscle its rivals in 5G in a few years, and that the company was ready for the export ban. In company news, shares of J.C. Penney Co. Inc. fell 7.4% after the department store chain missed analysts' expectations for first-quarter earnings.

Portugal's Economy Rebounds, Though Problems Persist


This news was published by : Voice of America -Economy exactly at Tue, 05/21/2019 - 21:18
The Portuguese economy is resisting the prevailing gloom in Europe. Activity remained strong, with GDP rising by 0.5% in the first quarter, or 1.8% at an annual rate, compared with 1.2% in the euro zone, forecasts Brussels. Following the trend of 2018, Portugal's good economic health comes mainly from private consumption fueled by rising wages and employment dynamics. The preliminary data, says the national statistics institute, "reflect a significant acceleration in investment." The government deficit has fallen from 7.2% of GDP to 0.5% of GDP since 2014, and the unemployment rate from a peak of 17.9% in early 2013, to about 6% currently. "The tourism sector has been the largest driver of the export recovery in Portugal," Ben Westmore, the head of the Portugal desk in the Economics Department of the OECD, confirmed to VOA. These numbers make Portugal the darling of international financial institutions. The head of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde, praised Portugal's economic recovery recently in Lisbon. "Portugal and the Portuguese people deserve huge credit for their efforts, for which they should be proud," Lagarde said. Low wages Despite the spectacular recovery and the fall of unemployment, a sense of precariousness and low wages are everywhere in Portugal. The minimum wage is only $669 (€600) per month — a number that has not prompted the return of many young adults, who left during the crisis. Between 2008 and 2014, 120,000 people left Portugal per year. Twenty percent were highly skilled workers, according to professor Joao Miguel Trancoso Lopes. This sociologist undertook a study and interviewed many of them to understand their motivations to stay abroad or come back in their country. "They do not feel Portugal is full of opportunities. The low wages are a real hurdle for them. They look for better jobs, outside of the country. Unlike the previous generations, the young Portuguese leaving abroad do not dream of returning home," he explained to VOA. This professor used to be paid $3,345 (€3,000) per month before the crisis. Today, he earns $2,901.99 (€2,600) per month. The health care system is another sector that was heavily targeted for budget cuts during the crisis. Bruno Maia is a neurologist in Lisbon. He acknowledges the current government took some measures to lift the burden, such as hiring of doctors and nurses. "The damages made to our health care system are so pronounced that these new jobs do not compensate what was lost during the crisis. It is not enough. Problems are accumulating and we are struggling," he underscores to VOA. For example, Maia says non-emergency procedures, like an MRI, could take up a year to be performed in Portugal. Besides these issues, Antonio Costa, the Socialist prime minister who vowed in 2015 to overturn austerity, remains popular in Portugal. His party and its allies likely will win the coming European elections on May 26. "Euroskepticism, which grew a lot during the crisis, it is not as important today. We do not expect a defeat as the Socialist Party is popular in Portugal," Andre Freire, a political science professor at Lisbon University Institute, told VOA. Portugal has 21 seats at the European Parliament.

US Shoe Industry Protests Possible Tariffs on Chinese Imports


This news was published by : Voice of America -Economy exactly at Tue, 05/21/2019 - 21:07
More than 170 American shoe manufacturers and retailers, including such well-known athletic shoe brands as Nike, Under Armour and Adidas, urged President Donald Trump on Tuesday to exempt footwear from any further tariffs he imposes on imported goods from China. The lobby for the shoe industry, the Footwear Distributors and Retailers of America, told Trump in a letter that his proposed 25 percent tariff on shoes imported from China "would be catastrophic for our consumers, our companies and the American economy as a whole." The industry imported $11.4 billion worth of shoes from China last year, although some manufacturers have been shifting production elsewhere, especially to Vietnam and Cambodia. It said the proposed tariffs on shoes made in China could cost U.S. consumers more than $7 billion annually on top of existing levies. "There should be no misunderstanding that U.S. consumers pay for tariffs on products that are imported," the 173 companies said, rejecting Trump's frequent erroneous statement that China pays the tariffs and that the money goes directly to the U.S. Treasury. Trump has been engaged in a string of reciprocal tariff increases with China on imported goods arriving in each other's ports as the world's two biggest economies have tried for months — unsuccessfully so far — to negotiate a new trade pact. After Trump imposed new 25 percent taxes on $200 billion worth of Chinese products earlier this month, he also set in motion plans to impose a new round of levies on virtually all Chinese imports, another $300 billion worth of goods, including shoe imports, clothing and electronics. The U.S. leader said that if American companies did not like the tariffs on Chinese imports, they could move their production inside the United States or to another country whose manufactured products are not taxed when they are sent to the U.S. But the footwear lobby rejected Trump's suggestion. "Footwear is a very capital-intensive industry, with years of planning required to make sourcing decisions, and companies cannot simply move factories to adjust to these changes," the industry told Trump. The U.S. Trade Representative's office has published a list of products that would be covered by the expanded tariffs and set a hearing for June 17.

Apple expands keyboard fix to latest models


This news was published by : MARKETWATCH exactly at Tue, 05/21/2019 - 20:30

Apple Inc. on Tuesday expanded a service program to address keyboard issues to include its newest line of MacBooks, suggesting the tech giant has yet to work out design bugs for its so-called butterfly keyboards. Back in June, Apple said it would replace damaged keys or entire keyboards for free on MacBooks with defective butterfly keys going back to 2015. The keyboards use a "butterfly mechanism," or V-shaped underpinnings rather than an X-shaped scissor connection for the keys, to allow for a thinner keyboard.

‘I’m Devastated.’ Jamie Oliver Announces His U.K. Restaurant Chain Has Filed for Bankruptcy


This news was published by : TIME BUSINESS exactly at Tue, 05/21/2019 - 19:19

(LONDON) — Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s British restaurant chain filed for bankruptcy protection on Tuesday, partly due to increased competition and escalating rents in local commercial districts.

The insolvency will leave 1,000 people out of work and reignited worries about local retail and food outlets in Britain, which are struggling to attract customers much like downtowns in the United States.

“I’m devastated that our much-loved U.K. restaurants have gone into administration,” Oliver wrote on Twitter. “I am deeply saddened by this outcome and would like to thank all of the staff and our suppliers who have put their hearts and souls into this business over the years.”

I’m devastated that our much-loved UK restaurants have gone into administration. I am deeply saddened by this outcome and would like to thank all of the people who have put their hearts and souls into this business over the years. Jamie Oliver

— Jamie Oliver (@jamieoliver) May 21, 2019

Financial firm KPMG, which will oversee the process, said all but three of the group’s 25 eateries will close. They include restaurants in the Jamie’s Italian chain, as will the more upmarket Fifteen, and steak house Barbecoa.

Two restaurants and a diner at Gatwick Airport will continue to operate while joint administrators explore options for the site. Overseas branches of Jamie’s Italian, Jamie’s Pizzeria and Jamie’s Deli, are not affected, nor is Fifteen Cornwall, which operates as a franchise.

Oliver said Jamie’s Italian was launched in 2008 “with the intention of positively disrupting mid-market dining” with higher quality ingredients, animal welfare standards, better service and good value.

But the launch came just as local businesses throughout the U.K. were squeezed by the onset of the 2008 financial crisis. Rising food prices, increasing rents and competition took a toll.

The company had been in trouble for at least two years, despite Oliver’s global fame on the back of his cookbooks and television shows. Last year, it shuttered 12 of its 37 sites in Britain, while five branches of the Australian arm of Jamie’s Italian were sold off and another put into administration.

He has personally pumped 13 million pounds into his Italian chain, but it was not enough.

“I appreciate how difficult this is for everyone affected,” he said.

Will Wright, a partner at KPMG and joint administrator, said that the directors at Jamie Oliver Restaurant Group had worked hard to stabilize the business, but costs were rising and consumer confidence was brittle.

He said the priority now is to support those that have been made redundant.

Simon Mydlowski, a partner at Yorkshire law firm Gordons and an expert on the hospitality industry, said Jamie’s is the latest brand that has failed to keep pace in a rapidly changing sector where a business needs to keep evolving.

“A number of suppliers will have been caught unawares here, perhaps showing a little too much trust in the Jamie Oliver name, but this is not the first big restaurant chain to have suffered and it won’t be the last,” he said in a statement.

“Faced with higher rent, rising food prices and increased competition, restaurants need a point of difference — it’s no coincidence that smaller brands with the freedom and flexibility to keep things fresh are currently the ones performing well.”

No need for more talks over draft budget: Lebanon finance minister


This news was published by : ARAB ECONOMY exactly at Tue, 05/21/2019 - 19:19
Tue, 2019-05-21 20:08

BEIRUT: Lebanon’s finance minister said on Tuesday there was no need for more talks over the 2019 draft budget, seen as a vital test of the government’s will to reform, although the foreign minister signalled the debate may go on.
The cabinet says the budget will reduce the deficit to 7.6% of gross domestic product (GDP) from last year’s 11.2%. Lebanon has one of the world’s heaviest public debt burdens at 150% of GDP.
“There is no longer need for too much talking or anything that calls for delay. I have presented all the numbers in their final form,” Finance Minister Ali Hassan Khalil said.
But Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil suggested the debate may go on, telling reporters: “The budget is done when it’s done.”
While Lebanon has dragged its feet on reforms for years, its sectarian leaders appear more serious this time, warning of a catastrophe if there is no serious action. Their plans have triggered protests and strikes by state workers and army retirees worried about their pensions.
President Michel Aoun on Tuesday repeated his call for Lebanese to sacrifice “a little“: “(If) we want to hold onto all privileges without sacrifice, we will lose them all.”
“We import from abroad, we don’t produce anything ... So what we did was necessary and the citizens won’t realize its importance until after they feel its positive results soon,” Aoun said, noting Lebanon’s $80 billion debt mountain.
A draft of the budget seen by Reuters included a three-year freeze on all forms of hiring and a cap on bonus and overtime benefits.
It also includes a 2% levy on imports including refined oil products and excluding medicine and primary inputs for agriculture and industry, said Youssef Finianos, minister of public works and transport.
“DEVIL IN THE DETAIL“
Marwan Mikhael, head of research at Blominvest Bank, said investors would welcome the additional efforts in the latest draft to cut the deficit.
“There will be some who claim it is not good because they were hit by the decline in spending or increased taxes, but it should be well viewed by the international community,” he said.
Jason Tuvey, senior emerging markets economist at Capital Economics, said: “The numbers will be of some comfort to investors, but the devil will be in the detail.”
“Even if the authorities do manage to rein in the deficit, it probably won’t be enough to stabilize the debt ratio and some form of restructuring looks increasingly likely over the next couple of years,” Tuvey said.
The government said in January it was committed to paying all maturing debt and interest payments on the predetermined dates.
Lebanon’s main expenses are a bloated public sector, interest payments on public debt and transfers to the loss-making power generator, for which a reform plan was approved in April. The state is riddled with corruption and waste.
Serious reforms should help Lebanon tap into some $11 billion of project financing pledged at a Paris donors’ conference last year.
Once approved by cabinet, the draft budget must be debated and passed by parliament. While no specific timetable is in place for those steps, Aoun has previously said he wants the budget approved by parliament by the end of May.
On Monday, veterans fearing cuts to their pensions and benefits burned tires outside the parliament building where the cabinet met. Police used water cannon to drive them back.

Libya's NOC concerned about theft and lawlessness affecting oil industry


This news was published by : ARAB ECONOMY exactly at Tue, 05/21/2019 - 19:05
Author: Tue, 2019-05-21 20:03

DUBAI/BENGHAZI: Libya’s state oil firm NOC is concerned about the country’s lawlessness affecting the oil industry, it said on Tuesday.
Equipment and machinery had been stolen at the headquarters at the NAGECO exploration firm, a NOC unit, it said in a statement. In another security incident a fuel truck was seized in southern Libya, it added.
The statement followed a suspected Daesh attack targeting Libya’s Zella oilfield on Saturday, in which three people were killed. 
The death toll was confirmed by the National Oil Company (NOC), which condemned the attack in a statement on Saturday evening.
The attackers struck at an entrance gate to the field, which lies near the town of Zella about 760 km (470 miles) southwest of the capital, Tripoli, before fleeing, according to the source and local residents who asked not to be named.
Daesh, which has re-emerged in Libya since an escalation in fighting created a vacuum in which it could operate, claimed responsibility for the attack through its Aamaq news agency later on Saturday.
The Zella field belongs to Zueitina Oil Company, which pumped 19,000 barrels per day on average in the last quarter of 2018 across all its fields.
Libya’s NOC chief said on Saturday continued instability in the country could cause it to lose 95 percent of oil production.
Libya’s oil and gas revenues reached $1.87 billion in April, up 22 percent from the previous month as oil prices rose, the NOC said on Sunday.
