Murdoch's new Sky bid should be probed, UK opposition politicians say

Sat, 10 Dec 2016 10:59:59 -0500

(image) Rupert Murdoch's new takeover approach for British pay-TV firm Sky should be investigated by the UK's competition authorities, according to opposition politicians, though analysts said a deal should be easier to get through this time round. Liberal Democrat Vince Cable, who was Britain's business secretary at the time of Murdoch's first bid in 2010-11 told BBC radio the media tycoon's new takeover attempt would not be in the public interest. Cable referred Murdoch's original bid to regulator Ofcom and said his latest offer should face the same scrutiny.

Hawkish Fed a potential speed bump for stock bulls

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 20:20:34 -0500

(image) Next week's Federal Reserve meeting and possible signals on the pace of rate hikes for next year could pose the biggest risk yet to the rally the U.S. stock market has seen since last month's presidential election. While investors have long anticipated the Fed will raise rates at the Dec. 13-14 meeting - in what would be its first such move in a year and second in nearly a decade - the worry for some stock investors is that the Fed takes a more aggressive stance on inflation and future hikes. Stocks have set a string of record highs since the Nov. 8 election on hopes of a pickup in U.S. economic growth, thanks to President-elect Donald Trump's promises of increased infrastructure spending, lower taxes and easier regulations.

Lawyers seek to launch fresh Brexit challenge in Irish courts

Sat, 10 Dec 2016 06:50:06 -0500

(image) A group of British and Irish lawyers are seeking to challenge Britain's decision to leave the European Union in the Irish High Court to try to establish if Brexit can be reversed once divorce talks have been triggered. The lawyers hope the court in Dublin will ask the European Court of Justice, the EU's highest court, to determine whether Article 50 can be revoked and also if leaving the EU means that Britain automatically leaves the European Economic Area (EEA). European Council President Donald Tusk has said that Britain might ultimately decide not to leave the EU and that if it unilaterally withdrew its request to leave before the two years were up, then it could stay in the Union.

Sat, 10 Dec 2016 13:09:22 -0500

OPEC, non-OPEC agree first global oil pact since 2001

Sat, 10 Dec 2016 13:55:28 -0500

(image) OPEC and non-OPEC producers on Saturday reached their first deal since 2001 to curtail oil output jointly and ease a global glut after more than two years of low prices that overstretched many budgets and spurred unrest in some countries. With the deal finally signed after almost a year of arguing within the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and mistrust in the willingness of non-OPEC Russia to play ball, the market's focus will now switch to compliance with the agreement. OPEC has a long history of cheating on output quotas.

Coke CEO Muhtar Kent hands reins to Quincey in widely expected move

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 13:58:00 -0500

(image) Coca-Cola Co said on Friday that Muhtar Kent would step aside as chief executive next year and be replaced by James Quincey, a company veteran credited with several recent changes to help the company cut its dependence on sugary drinks. Quincey's ascension was widely expected since he became chief operating officer in August 2015 after jobs that included running Coke's businesses in Europe and Mexico over two decades. Kent, 64, will have completed nine years at the helm when he steps down in May, but he will continue as chairman of the board, a post he has held since 2009, Coke said.

All eyes focused on clues for future Fed hikes

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 20:37:15 -0500

(image) Just how fast the Federal Reserve hikes rates next year will be the all-important question global investors will be hoping to get answered when the U.S. central bank meets next week. There is little doubt that the Fed will raise interest rates for the first time in a year on Wednesday, with markets pricing in a near 100 percent chance for a quarter percentage point increase in its target range. "While financial markets have gotten excited about the prospects of fiscal stimulus by the incoming administration, we expect that FOMC members won't incorporate such a scenario into their forecasts until it has been approved," they added.
