It says VW remains in an excellent position in the medium term with what it expects to be €20bn industrial net cash at the end of the year, a strong double-digit EBIT margin and good sales prospects from its highly important Audi division.ELECTRA PRIVATE EQUITYWinterflood said Electra Private Equity produced a good set of results, which benefited from the sales of some recent opportunistic investments as well as from some of its older investments. In share price terms, performance has been impressive; it calculates that over the last 12 months, the fund’s share price has increased by 32 per cent, compared with the FTSE All Share which has risen 11 per cent.SHIRE PHARMACEUTICALS Shore Capital has reiterated its “buy” recommendation for Shire, saying the pharmaceutical firm is in a enviable position. Shire has delivered 15 per cent sales growth as well as 15 per cent earnings per share growth. The broker says Shire is positioned to continue to do well despite warnings over earnings momentum in 2011 and a possible FDA review of one the companies core franchises. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was The Dream Girl In The 90s, This Is Her NowMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity Timesmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

G20 bows to Chinese demands

first_imgSunday 20 February 2011 11:45 pm whatsapp Tags: NULL KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Sharecenter_img CHINA forced a series of tough concessions from the G20 over the weekend as finance leaders thrashed out which indicators should be used to measure risks to the global economy.The talks were overshadowed by the feud between China and the US over the Eastern power’s perceived manipulation of its exchange rate to devalue the yuan and keep its exports cheap.Western finance ministers led by the US had hoped to include exchange rates and currency reserves among a list of indicators that would be used to monitor the economies of member countries. But with the talks ready to collapse and China refusing to countenance their inclusion, they were forced to cave to China’s demands. China also succeeded in removing a reference to current account imbalances in favour of the more narrow trade balance, in which Beijing expects its surplus to shrink as it boosts domestic demand.Chancellor George Osborne attempted to put a positive spin on the gruelling set of negotiations, saying the meeting was an important step forward. China had previously hoped to avoid having to adhere to such a strictly defined list of indicators and the inclusion of net investment income flows was also seen as a victory.The problem now will be in agreeing on how to implement the list, with talks in April expected to be fraught with difficulties.

Union urges government to support William Hill workers

With Wet Southern Soils Northern Indiana may be First to Plant

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News With Wet Southern Soils Northern Indiana may be First to Plant SHARE Indiana soil updateIf a farmer is going to wait to plant corn until soil temperatures are at least 55 degrees, how close to that mark are soils around Indiana? Associate State Climatologist Ken Scheeringa located at Purdue says many locations have met or exceeded that mark through Sunday, but temperatures are dropping again.Early Monday afternoon he told HAT, “I’m noticing in the last few hours I’m seeing our soil temperatures are dropping some. I’m seeing some upper 40 degree temperatures in far northern Indiana. Most of the state is still in the 50’s as this cold air is just starting to move in now, but in the last few days with the really nice weekend that we’ve had we have been able to get our soil temperatures in the desirable range.”Although soil temperatures drop slower than air temperatures, there will be a shift in the soil with cooler weather coming in.“The data I was looking at is for the 4 inches below the surface level and you can watch that drop slowly during the day. It started out in the midnight hours in the low 50’s but it has dropped perhaps 4 or 5 degrees, especially in the northern area where it’s been colder a little longer.”Scheeringa told HAT that typical April weather of rain every 3 days is expected in the short term. And when it comes to actual planting, soil moisture now points to a quicker start in northern Indiana.“If you remember from last week we had some pretty heavy rains in the southern part of Indiana and that’s still going to play a factor in when they’re able to get out there. They probably had some drying over this nice weekend, but overall the soil moisture situation is still wetter in the southern part of the state, and probably most favorable in the northwest corner. They did not get those heavy rains and we had not nearly this much rain over the last seven days up there, so if I had to throw some dice and put a gamble on which area might be ready to start first, I’d say it would be the northwest.”And even with warmer soils, planting in far southern Indiana may bring up the rear this year.
