The shares have climbed by 30 per cent since touching a low in early July and have outperformed the mining index by nine per cent so far this year.Even with the reduced forecast, 2010 output is due to rise 20 per cent from last year due to the plant expansion at Los Pelambres.Pre-tax profit rose to $932.1m (£605.6m) for the six months to 30 June, from $477.6m in the same period for 2009, on a 50 per cent rise in turnover to $1.76bn. Antofagasta declared an interim dividend of four cents up from 3.4 cents. last_img read more

IG eyes turbulence after revenues rise

first_img Share SPREADBETTING and derivatives specialist IG Group is eyeing an uptick in trading activity as the prospect of further government debt woe in the Eurozone looms.Chief executive Tim Howkins said he was “quite gloomy” about the outlook for global equity markets given the need to gradually withdraw fiscal props in the wake of 2008’s financial collapse.Howkins told City A.M.: “Particularly there’s a degree of burying heads in the sand about how serious the sovereign debt issue could be in Europe. There’s a genuine possibility of another banking crisis.”Greece would have severe difficulties trying to impose austerity measures in the fact of popular discontent, he said. Howkins acknowledged the turbulence would be harmful for long-only investors, but added: “If you did see a crash it would be a busy period for us, at least in the short term.”His comments came as IG revealed a 16 per cent rise in fiscal first quarter revenue to £79m, driven by higher business volumes in the UK, Europe, Singapore and Australia. Sales in the UK grew by 8.5 per cent to account for more than half the total. whatsapp Read This NextNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’Sportsnaut’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily 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 ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proof Tags: NULL whatsappcenter_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming to Scottsdale (Take A Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search Adsautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Herald KCS-content IG eyes turbulence after revenues rise Thursday 9 September 2010 8:10 pm Show Comments ▼last_img read more

Monday 15 November 2010 8:18 pm Show Comments ▼ Q.WHAT FINANCING OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE?A. The European Union safety net consists of the European Financial Stability Mechanism (EFSM), which can lend up to €60bn and the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF), which is backed by €440bn worth of Eurozone government guarantees. On top of that, the International Monetary Fund (IFMF) can lend additional money and the IMF has said it was ready to provide up to 50 per cent of what Europe was providing.Q.WHO WOULD LEND IRELAND MONEY FIRST?A. If Ireland asks for and is granted a financing package, it would be from all three sources. Money from the EFSM would be paid out first, but EFSF cash and the IMF would also be involved, because the EU wants to avoid a situation where one country uses up all the funds available under the EFSM. The EFSM is available to all 27 EU members while the EFSF will lend only to the 16 countries of the Eurozone.Q.HOW LONG WOULD IT TAKE TO EFFECT A RESCUE?A. The mechanism has never been used before, but EU officials estimate it would take between three and five weeks from the application for assistance and the first disbursement of money.Q.WHAT CONDITIONS WOULD AID CARRY?A. The EU could insist Dublin reneges on an agreement with public sector unions not to cut jobs or push through further wage cuts. Brussels may also demand Ireland raises its corporation tax rate, viewed as sacrosanct by Dublin, from its current low level of 12.5 per cent.Q.HOW MUCH MONEY WOULD IRELAND NEED?A. Any bailout needs to be big enough to bring to a close uncertainty over whether future Irish bank loan losses could rattle the sovereign and destabilise the Eurozone. Eurozone sources estimate €45 to €90bn depending on whether Dublin needs money for its banking sector, or not.Q.CAN IRELAND USE THE MONEY TO SUPPORT ITS BANKS?A. Yes. While the EU funds cannot be accessed by Irish banks directly, the Irish government can borrow from the EFSM or EFSF and use the cash to support its banking sector.Q.WHY IS IRELAND NOT KEEN ON EU HELP?A. An EU bailout would mean a big loss of face for a country once feted for its rags to riches transformation and proud of its struggle for independence from Britain. last_img read more

Global economic recovery will pick up pace around April 2011, OECD predicts

first_img GROWTH in economies across several continents is set to accelerate, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) said yesterday.However, economic growth in Britain is merely showing “signs of stabilisation,” the report said.The OECD’s indicators, measured in November, are designed to anticipate turning points in economic activity six months in advance.“We expect [British] GDP growth to stabilise at 0.3 per cent in the second and third quarters of 2011,” said IHS Global Insight’s Howard Archer, commenting on the latest figures.China, the US, France and Japan showed clear signs of increasingly expanding economies, the OECD revealed.The report’s headline rate for the OECD area increased to 102.8 in November, up from 102.6 in October. All readings over 100 points indicate growing economic activity.Brazil was the only country to record an impending economic contraction, with a score of 98.6.The highest levels were recorded in Germany (104.9) and Russia (105.3).

Firms to buy 10m tablet PCs this year

first_img Share Show Comments ▼ AROUND a quarter of tablet computers, such as Apple’s smash-hit iPad, will be bought by businesses this year, according to Deloitte. The “big four” accountancy giant says firms will snap up tablet devices for their employees instead of buying more costly PCs. “We predict that companies in the retail, healthcare and manufacturing sectors will buy more than 10m tablets for their staff,” said Peter O’Donoghue, head of Deloitte’s technology practice.O’Donoghue added the devices were attractive because of their ease of use and longer battery-lifeHowever, he said firms could be hit by hidden costs, as tablets – which are less robust than PCs – would need to be replaced more often. Meanwhile, combined global sales of smartphones, netbooks and tablets will overtake annual PC sales of 400m for the first time in 2011, Deloitte predicts. “2011 will mark the tipping point as the growth of applications for non-PC items outstrips traditional sales and consumers embrace a wider variety of devices,” said O’Donoghue. The demise of the desktop PC is bad news for software giant Microsoft, which derives around 62 per cent of its revenues from sales of Windows and Office. Microsoft – which has a virtual monopoly when it comes to operating system software for the desktop PC – can’t expect the same kind of dominance on new devices, Deloitte said, with tough competition from the likes of Apple and Google. whatsapp Read This Next’Pose’ Creator Steven Canals on Life After His Groundbreaking Show: ‘I’mThe Wrap’The Boys’ Star Aya Cash Took Inspiration From YouTube, TikTok and SteveThe WrapHow HGTV’s ‘Renovation Island’ Changed Bryan and Sarah Baeumler’sThe Wrap’Bridgerton’ Stars Phoebe Dynevor and Nicola Coughlan on Daphne andThe WrapBest Wine Gifts & Wine Accessories at Every PriceGayot’Hitman’s Bodyguard’s Wife’ Earns $17 Million 5-Day Opening as Box OfficeThe WrapFox News’ Mark Levin Says Capitol Riot Suspects ‘Would Be Treated Better’The WrapEverything We Know, or Think We Know, About the Time-Keepers on ‘Loki’The Wrap’The Crown’: What Went Into Finding Princess Diana and Margaret ThatcherThe Wrap Wednesday 12 January 2011 8:17 pm Firms to buy 10m tablet PCs this year whatsapp KCS-content Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Martin Weale also voted for a 0.25 per cent increase.Yet Shaw expects rates to remain at their historical low. A rate hike “could have the ‘avoid at all costs effect’ of derailing the planned fiscal consolidation,” he said. And the British Chambers of Commerce yesterday called for the Bank to keep rates on hold. “Avoiding a new setback must remain a key policy priority,” commented BCC economist David Kern.

GOING GREEN AS GREEN GOES AWOL

first_img Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL KCS-content whatsapp GOING GREEN AS GREEN GOES AWOL Tuesday 8 February 2011 8:59 pmcenter_img “HEAVY business” in the House of Lords detained former HSBC chairman Stephen Green, but the British-Israel Chambers of Commerce partied on anyway last night at the British-Israeli business awards dinner.Universities minister David Willetts stepped into the breach with Green’s speech in hand to extol the UK economy’s virtues as an exporter of everything “from whiskey to finance” (and their intersection, no doubt).Taking the opportunity to make fun of his absent peer, he recalled one lord who, upon arriving at the House of Lords had demanded: “And what is the pension?”The confused stewards looked at one another. “The House of Lords is the pension,” they said. “But maybe Stephen doesn’t need that arrangement,” Willetts observed wryly. His speech, and a generous main course, gave ample time for star speaker Shai Agassi, founder of Better Place, the world’s biggest electric car company, to write what appeared to be his speech on a scrap of paper at the top table.But the notes scribbled under the wing of a model EL Al airlines plane placed amid the flowers on each table didn’t prevent him from wowing the international crowd of businessfolk ranging from hoteliers to shipping magnates.Agassi didn’t quite ditch the jacket and roll up the sleeves Blair-style, but he shunned the podium in favour of a free-form motivational talk: “The Stone Age didn’t end because they ran out of stones,” he exclaimed. “And we will not end the oil age by running out of oil but by finding something better.”But he was keen to reassure the business-minded audience: “I didn’t start as a greenie. I’m a capitalist pig,” he said, although he couldn’t resist a dig at big oil, referring to his company, Better Place, as “the other BP”.Most of the illustrious crowd might have been revved up by Agassi’s optimism, but it didn’t take everywhere, it seems – ex-Lloyds chairman Sir Victor Blank was seen snoozing into his napkin.No such rest for Lord Green: he had a vote to cast.
