  • 8/27   In Jerusalem hotel, eviction fears dampen Christmas cheer
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    The Christmas tree is up at the entrance to the Imperial Hotel in Jerusalem, but for its Palestinian hosts there is little festive cheer amid fears they could be evicted in favour of Israeli settlers.  In June, Israel's Supreme Court finally concluded that the settler organisation Ateret Cohanim had legally bought the hotel, along with two other nearby buildings, from the Greek Orthodox Church in a controversial and secret 2004 deal.  While it appears he will still be there at least for Christmas, the proprietor of the 48-room hotel, Abu Walid Dajani, said he didn't know whether the decision would be a turning point or just another obstacle in the 15-year legal battle.

    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- Oil extended gains as OPEC crude output dropped before the group and its allies meet this week to set the path for future production cuts.Futures added 0.5% in New York even as Asian stocks declined following the announcement of fresh tariffs by President Donald Trump. Output from the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries slipped by 110,000 barrels a day last month, according to data compiled by Bloomberg, while analysts forecast U.S. crude fell last week for the first time since mid-October.Crude has climbed since early October on signs the U.S.-China are close to a breakthrough on an initial trade deal. Iraq said on Sunday that OPEC+ may consider deepening output cuts, contrary to expectations, while Saudi Arabia has signaled it will no longer tolerate cheating by other members on quotas.“OPEC+ doesn’t seem like it’s going to make a further cut in its agreed output,” Kim So Hyun, a commodities strategist at Daishin Securities Co., said by phone in Seoul. “If the group extends the current plans without making deeper cuts, prices are likely to retreat to near $50 a barrel.”West Texas Intermediate for January delivery added 28 cents to $56.24 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange as of 7:40 a.m. in London.

  • 10/27   China Hints U.S. Blacklist Imminent in Threat to Trade Talks
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- Terms of Trade is a daily newsletter that untangles a world embroiled in trade wars. Sign up here. Chinese state media said the government would soon publish a list of “unreliable entities” that could lead to sanctions against U.S. companies, signaling trade talks between the two nations are increasingly under threat from disputes over human rights in Hong Kong and Xinjiang.The Communist Party-backed Global Times said in a tweet early Tuesday that the list was being sped up in response to a bill sponsored by Republican Senator Marco Rubio requiring sanctions against Chinese officials involved in alleged abuses of Uighur Muslims in the far west region of Xinjiang. Beijing has threatened to publish such a list of companies since May, after the U.S. placed restrictions on Huawei Technologies Co.December 2, 2019 China’s foreign ministry later sidestepped a question about the report, saying only that the country’s determination to oppose foreign interference was unwavering. “China will take further necessary measures according to the development of the situation,” ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a regular news briefing.Any response from China on the Xinjiang issue that hits U.S. companies would add another obstacle as the world’s two biggest economies struggle to finalize a phase-one deal to de-escalate their trade war. Investors are looking for any signs of progress ahead of a Dec. 15 deadline for President Donald Trump to add yet more tariffs on Chinese imports.Stocks were mixed in Asia as investors contemplated the latest developments in China, as well as Trump’s move to threaten new levies on France and slap steel tariffs on both Brazil and Argentina.Hong Kong BillOn Monday, Trump said that trade talks with China had been complicated by legislation he signed last week threatening sanctions on officials who undermine Hong Kong’s semi-autonomy from Beijing. That legislation, along with a bill that bans the export of crowd control devices to Hong Kong police seeking to stem pro-democracy protests, led China to threaten sanctions on some human rights organizations and halt U.S. naval visits to the city.Trump Signals Hong Kong Law Complicates China Trade TalksGlobal Times Editor-in-Chief Hu Xijin said Tuesday that the Xinjiang bill would spur more retaliation from China, writing on Twitter that U.S. officials may face visa restrictions and U.S. diplomatic passport holders could be banned from entering the province. China stands accused of incarcerating as many as a million Uighurs as part of an anti-terrorism campaign, actions it describes as voluntary re-education.China hasn’t specified which companies would be affected by the blacklist, though courier firm FedEx Corp. has been under particular scrutiny this year. Any move from President Xi Jinping’s government must also weigh the costs on China’s economy, which is growing at its slowest pace in decades.The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote Tuesday on the Xinjiang bill, which amends a version passed by unanimous consent in the Senate in September. It adds provisions that require the president to sanction Chinese government officials responsible for the repression of Uighurs, a predominantly Muslim and Turkic-speaking ethnic group, and places restrictions on the export of devices that could be used to spy on, or restrict, the communications or movements of group members.Year-End GoalLawmakers are working to resolve differences between the House and Senate versions of the bills to find a version that can pass swiftly through Congress before the end of the year. Rubio said that means any changes would need to be “pre-cleared” by the relevant committees so the bill could be passed by unanimous consent in the Senate.Among other provisions, the bill requires the president to submit to Congress within 120 days a list of senior Chinese government officials who have committed human rights abuses against Uighurs in Xinjiang or elsewhere in China. That list would include Xinjiang Party Secretary Chen Quanguo and officials responsible for mass incarceration or reeducation efforts targeting Uighurs and other predominantly Muslim ethnic minorities.The president would be required to impose visa and financial restrictions under the Global Magnitsky Act on the listed individuals.

    (Bloomberg) -- Kuwait’s government will invest as much as $1 billion in the initial public offering of Saudi Aramco as the kingdom asks regional allies to bolster the record share sale, according to people familiar with the matter.The Kuwait Investment Authority had been reluctant to commit significant funds to the IPO, but was told by the government that a stake was in the country’s strategic interest, the people said, asking not to be identified discussing a confidential matter. Kuwait communicated its decision to Aramco on Monday.Kuwait’s move follows Abu Dhabi, the oil-rich member of the United Arab Emirates, which has decided to invest $1.5 billion in Aramco, people familiar with the matter said last week.Bringing in another major investor from the Gulf region will be a relief for Saudi Arabia after plans to market the IPO globally were abandoned.

  • 13/27   Here’s What Happens to Markets If U.S. Tariffs on China Kick in Dec. 15
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- Terms of Trade is a daily newsletter that untangles a world embroiled in trade wars. Sign up here. U.S. President Donald Trump’s moves to slap an assortment of trading partners with tariffs Monday served a rude reminder to investors that a major deadline is looming with China.Global equities came within a whisker of their all-time high last month, propelled in part by swelling optimism that at least an interim U.S.-China trade deal was in the offing. Meantime, the clock kept ticking towards Dec. 15, when Trump has threatened to impose 15% levies on $160 billion of Chinese imports.“If tariffs scheduled for Dec. 15 are implemented it would be a huge shock to the market consensus,” said Sue Trinh, managing director for global macro strategy at Manulife Investment Management in Hong Kong. “Trump would be the Grinch that stole Christmas,” she said.With about two weeks to go on the China front, the Trump administration Monday hit Brazil and Argentina with steel tariffs and proposed levies on France as punishment over a tax that’s hit large American tech companies.The reminder of Trump’s self-styled tariff-man bent was enough to trigger the biggest Wall Street sell-off in eight weeks -- with a little help from a weak U.S. manufacturing report. The following are the views of a number of market participants on what happens if the tariffs on China kick in Dec. 15.‘Gloomy Future’It will be “definitely risk-off across the screen,” Tongli Han, chief investment officer at Deepblue Global Investment, said in an interview with Bloomberg TV. “What happened recently makes this trade deal more costly for Chinese leaders -- so I’m seeing a gloomy future for the short term, one-to-two months.”Better Luck Next YearWith the clock running down on 2019 and a prospects of a trade deal looking more remote it’s time for investors to take a little bit of risk off the table, said Steve Brice, chief investment strategist at Standard Chartered private bank, on Bloomberg TV.“It looks like it’s going to be pushed to the beginning of next year at the best case,” Brice said.

    (Bloomberg) -- Terms of Trade is a daily newsletter that untangles a world embroiled in trade wars. Sign up here. U.S. President Donald Trump’s moves to slap an assortment of trading partners with tariffs Monday served a rude reminder to investors that a major deadline is looming with China.Global equities came within a whisker of their all-time high last month, propelled in part by swelling optimism that at least an interim U.S.-China trade deal was in the offing. Meantime, the clock kept ticking towards Dec. 15, when Trump has threatened to impose 15% levies on $160 billion of Chinese imports.“If tariffs scheduled for Dec. 15 are implemented it would be a huge shock to the market consensus,” said Sue Trinh, managing director for global macro strategy at Manulife Investment Management in Hong Kong. “Trump would be the Grinch that stole Christmas,” she said.With about two weeks to go on the China front, the Trump administration Monday hit Brazil and Argentina with steel tariffs and proposed levies on France as punishment over a tax that’s hit large American tech companies.The reminder of Trump’s self-styled tariff-man bent was enough to trigger the biggest Wall Street sell-off in eight weeks -- with a little help from a weak U.S. manufacturing report. The following are the views of a number of market participants on what happens if the tariffs on China kick in Dec. 15.‘Gloomy Future’It will be “definitely risk-off across the screen,” Tongli Han, chief investment officer at Deepblue Global Investment, said in an interview with Bloomberg TV. “What happened recently makes this trade deal more costly for Chinese leaders -- so I’m seeing a gloomy future for the short term, one-to-two months.”Better Luck Next YearWith the clock running down on 2019 and a prospects of a trade deal looking more remote it’s time for investors to take a little bit of risk off the table, said Steve Brice, chief investment strategist at Standard Chartered private bank, on Bloomberg TV.“It looks like it’s going to be pushed to the beginning of next year at the best case,” Brice said. The message to investors is “maybe trim a little bit of equity exposure, or certainly not chase the market at this stage. But look to do so in the next few weeks if we see a 5-to-7% pullback.”Longer term, Brice remains optimistic “the U.S. and China will still strike a deal of some sort. That will reduce uncertainty and help the global economy do well.”Optimism DashedFor Kerry Craig, global market strategist at JPMorgan Asset Management, a key concern is markets have already priced in the prospect of a trade deal that has yet to be signed.“There had been a lot of optimism built in around a trade deal and it’s still the thing that will weigh on markets over the coming months,” Craig said on Bloomberg TV. “In the meantime we need to see more of a pick-up in the global economy to really offset some of those uncertainties.”Buy the DipFor some, the retreat in equities at the start of the week already presents a buying opportunity.“I’d fade the correction today,” Eli Lee, head of investment strategy at Bank of Singapore, told Bloomberg TV.The renewed tariff pressures on South America and Europe are likely an effort to bolster Trump’s “tariff man” image ahead of a trade deal with China, he said.“With the economy in a very delicate situation, if this came on, it would seriously ratchet up the risk of a recession -- and the White House wouldn’t want this situation going into the 2020 presidential election next year,” Lee said.‘Wild Day’There may be some massive initial market swings in store, said Chris Weston, head of research at Pepperstone Group Ltd. in a note to clients.“We could face a wild day,” he said.

  • 14/27   Italy’s UniCredit to Eliminate 8,000 Jobs
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- Want the lowdown on European markets? In your inbox before the open, every day. Sign up here.UniCredit SpA Chief Executive Officer Jean Pierre Mustier will reward investors with 2 billion euros ($2.2 billion) of share buybacks in a new four-year strategic plan that will see about 8,000 job cuts as the bank grapples with slow economic growth and negative rates.The Milan-based lender, announcing new targets through 2023, will boost shareholder payouts through a combination of dividends and stock repurchases. The employee reductions, equal to more than 9% of the workforce, will come in part through the closure of about 500 branches. UniCredit also announced a separate buyback equal to 10% of this year’s earnings.Mustier is seeking to drive investor returns through cost cuts and greater efficiency while signaling that the bank -- in common with many of its peers -- is struggling to boost growth in a time of negative interest rates. Revenue and costs are expected to be little changed through 2023 and the bank will focus on eking out what it can on its own rather than attempting major acquisitions.The plan’s targets are “pragmatic and achievable,” Mustier said in the statement. “They are based on a realistic set of macroeconomic assumptions, being more conservative than those assumed by the market.”UniCredit expects to deliver 1 billion euros of savings in Western Europe which will in part be achieved through the job and branch cuts. The expected 1.4 billion-euro cost of the initiative will be booked in 2019 and 2020.Simpler StructureThe CEO will focus on further simplifying the bank’s structure and improving the way it allocates capital. UniCredit plans to create a sub-holding company to control its international businesses and it will further reduce its non-performing loans. The bank also set out the following plans for shareholder returns:UniCredit will distribute 40% of underlying profit from 2020 to 202230% will be a cash dividend and it will buy back stock equal to 10% of its earnings. Dividend will increase to 40% in 2023 with purchases boosting total payout to 50%. Buyback based on 2019 earnings will increase the payout to 40% from 30% previously.Ahead of the new strategic plan, UniCredit took a number of steps this year to get out of businesses that aren’t key to its operations. The bank agreed to sell a direct stake of 9% in Yapi ve Kredi Bankasi AS to Koc Holding AS, unwinding their joint venture in the Turkish lender in a move that will lead to 1 billion euros of losses. The company earlier this year also sold its holdings of Italy’s Banca Fineco SpA.UniCredit has disclosed or hinted at many of the plan’s details in recent weeks. Mustier has said that he expects to see consolidation among European financial only after stock values rise and that the Italian lender would prefer to repurchase shares instead of doing large deals. One sign of the tougher environment: the bank is expect a return on tangible equity -- a key profit metric -- of more than 8% in the plan, down from more than 9% in 2019.Despite tougher regulation in the coming years, UniCredit plans to keep its common equity Tier 1 ratio at 200-250 basis points over regulatory requirements throughout the plan. Revenue is expected to rise by just 0.8% a year through 2023, as low and negative interest rates continue to hurt earnings from lending at banks across the euro zone.UniCredit posted a better-than-expected 26% rise in adjusted profit in the third quarter and boosted its CET1 ratio, a key measure of financial strength, after the sale of businesses.(Updates with charts on buyback, jobs.)To contact the reporter on this story: Sonia Sirletti in Milan at ssirletti@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Dale Crofts at dcrofts@bloomberg.net, Ross LarsenFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    The Caribou-Palermo transmission line was identified as the cause of the Camp Fire last year, which virtually incinerated the Northern California town of Paradise and stands as the state's most lethal blaze.  'PG&E failed to maintain an effective inspection and maintenance program to identify and correct hazardous conditions on its transmission lines ... as are necessary to promote the safety and health of its patrons and the public,' a 700-page report by the California Public Utilities Commission said.  The probe concluded that PG&E's inspection shortcomings were part of a pattern of 'inadequate' execution of those tasks.

  • 19/27   Europe Set to Overhaul Its Entire Economy in Green Deal Push
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- The European Union is gearing up for the world’s most ambitious policy against climate change -- requiring a radical overhaul of the economy -- at a summit in Brussels next week.The bloc’s leaders will commit to cutting net greenhouse-gas emissions to zero by 2050, according to a draft joint statement for the Dec. 12-13 meeting.To meet this target, the EU will promise more green investment and adjust its policy-making, from easing a ban on state subsidies to changing public procurement rules and taxing imports from countries that fall short on environmental standards.“If our common goal is to be a climate-neutral continent in 2050, we have to act now,” Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission, told a United Nations climate conference on Monday. “It’s a generational transition we have to go through.”The EU plan, set to be approved as the high-profile United Nations summit in Madrid winds up, would put the bloc ahead of other major emitters. Countries including China, India and Japan have yet to translate voluntary pledges under the 2015 Paris climate accord into binding national measures. U.S. President Donald Trump has said he’ll pull the U.S. out of the Paris agreement.The Commission, the EU’s regulatory arm, will have the job of drafting the rules that would transform the European economy once national leaders have signed off on the climate goals for 2050. The wording of the draft summit communique, which may still change, reflects an initial set proposals due to be unveiled by the Commission on the eve of the leaders’ gathering.Make It IrreversibleTo ensure that coal-reliant Poland doesn’t veto the climate goals, EU leaders want to pledge an “enabling framework” that will include financial support, according to the document, dated Dec. 2.The commission has estimated that additional investment on energy and infrastructure of as much as 290 billion euros ($321 billion) a year may be required after 2030 to meet the targets. Under the plan, the European Investment Bank will spearhead the funding. It has promised to mobilize 1 trillion euros over a decade.Von der Leyen told the UN meeting that the Commission will propose an EU law in March that would “make the transition to climate neutrality irreversible.” She said the measure will extend the scope of emissions trading, and will include “a farm-to-fork strategy and a biodiversity strategy.”The EU leaders will also debate the bloc’s next long-term budget next week. The current proposal would commit at least $300 billion in public funds for climate initiatives, or at least a quarter of the bloc’s entire budget for the period between 2021 and 2027.(Updates with details on draft sumit communique from second paragraph)To contact the reporters on this story: Ewa Krukowska in Brussels at ekrukowska@bloomberg.net;Nikos Chrysoloras in Brussels at nchrysoloras@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Chad Thomas at cthomas16@bloomberg.net, Flavia Krause-JacksonFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    About three dozen firms including ride-hailer Grab, Standard Chartered and Singapore Telecommunications are in talks to form consortiums that can meet tough entry norms to bid for Singapore's digital bank licences, sources said.  Singapore's biggest liberalisation of its banking sector in two decades seeks to enable online-only banks that can operate at lower costs and therefore offer different services than those of incumbents including DBS Group and OCBC.  'There is a lot of speed dating going on,' said Varun Mittal, who heads the emerging markets fintech business at consultancy EY.
