Ebene News – GB – What to watch: COVID hits BAT cigarette sales, Rio Tinto dividend, UK inflation and Bitcoin surge

Here are the top business, trade and economic stories you should be watching today in the UK, Europe and abroad:

British American Tobacco (BAT, BATSL) shares plunged 55% on Wednesday after earnings growth fell short of investors’ expectations as COVID-19 hit tobacco sales

The company saw its pre-tax profits drop from £ 7.9bn ($ 11bn) in 2019 to £ 8.7bn last year, but were below expectations and revenues fell by £ 25.9 to £ 25 8 billion Cigarette sales volume fell 46%, although revenues increased 28%

The company said COVID-19 hit around 25% on its revenue, and it predicts the global tobacco industry will shrink 3% in 2021 The US market outlook, which is worth about two-fifths of industry, are “dependent on uncertainties about COVID-19”

The pandemic has had a “serious impact” on consumption in a number of emerging markets, BAT says, as global travel restrictions have hit overseas sales

“The cost reduction was a major contributor to the better than expected performance and investors may be concerned about the sustainability of future growth given that Covid-19 served as an additional reminder of the health risks of smoking”, said AJ Bell investment director Russ Mold

“Like its rivals, British American is investing in so-called new categories, primarily vaping, but traditional products still account for over 90% of sales despite significant growth in this area during the year”

Consumer price inflation was 07% in January, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said on Wednesday.The January figure was up slightly from the reading of 0 in December 6%, despite a return to lockout in early 2021 Economists had forecast a rate of 05% for the first month of this year

“Inflation started 2021 in much the same vein as it ended 2020, weak and moving sideways,” said Laith Khalaf, financial analyst at broker AJ Bell

Furniture and routine maintenance costs were the main drivers of price hikes Samuel Tombs, chief UK economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, said the increase in furniture costs reflected “the impact of recent increase in shipping and Brexit costs on the price of imported consumer goods”

Food prices have also increased, which Khalaf says could be linked to Brexit “The January price change of some common food items such as cauliflower, chips and fish fingers suggests that there may also have been a temporary disruption to Brexit, “Khalaf said

The price of Bitcoin (BTC-USD) topped $ 51,000 ($ 36,734) on Wednesday, a new high as the cryptocurrency is accepted by mainstream investors Some analysts predict it could soon reach $ 70,000

It was just a day after bitcoin surpassed $ 50,000 It went as high as $ 51,140, ​​before trading at $ 50,82883 on 820h in London Its new high extends a bull run that started in October last

Simon Peters, crypto-asset analyst at multi-asset investment platform eToro, said: “Bitcoin’s incredible rise this year shows no signs of slowing down This latest milestone shows how it should now be viewed as a consumer investment asset “

Iron ore producer Rio Tinto announced the biggest dividend in its 148-year history by posting a 3% increase in revenue in 2020, and separately said it plans to spend $ 1 billion dollars ($) in emission reduction initiatives over the next five yearsRio announced ordinary dividends of 464 cents per share last year, with an additional special dividend of 93 cents The total dividend is up 26% year over year

“Rising raw material prices were key to their results, which helped the company overcome some lower production levels,” said Peter McNally, Global Sector Lead for Industrials, Materials & Energy at Third Bridge

“As long as iron ore prices are strong and Rio Tinto can deliver its volumes in a safe operating environment, its financial outlook remains healthy The new management continues to express regret for the destruction of rock shelters at Juukan Gorge and is implementing action plans for more sustainable mining activities “

Global stock rally shows “signs of slowing” as government bond sell-off forced yields to rise

European stocks fell on the open after closing lower or flat the day before UK FTSE 100 (^ FTSE) slipped 05%, Germany DAX (^ GDAXI) lost 07% after hitting a record high on Monday, and France’s CAC 40 (^ FCHI) fell 05% after hitting its own post-pandemic high on Monday

It came after benchmark 10-year US Treasuries hit a new one-year high, with strong economic data and signs of progress on the US government’s stimulus package fueling recovery hopes and inflation Tuesday saw the biggest daily rise in US yields since the market turmoil last March

“The astonishing rally in stocks we have seen in recent days has shown signs of slowing down over the past 24 hours,” Deutsche Bank analyst Jim Reid wrote in a note.

“In sovereign bond markets the selling continued to accelerate as investors remained stuck in the reflation trade, especially as Congress increasingly focused on passing now reiterates that former President Trump’s impeachment hearing has been ruled out “

Markets in China remain closed for the Lunar New Year holiday, but several major indexes elsewhere fell overnight The Nikkei in Japan (^ N225) lost 06%, from a 30-year high But the Hang Seng in Hong Kong (^ HSI) made gains, up 12%

(Bloomberg) – BlackRock Inc has given business leaders more details on what it is looking for in their plans to slow global warming, warning it could vote against those who do not meet its standards global shareholder on Wednesday released a five-page document outlining their expectations for how businesses should deal with climate risk.This is the first look at the details after CEO Larry Fink’s letter in January calling on companies to align with global efforts to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 “We expect directors to have sufficient control over climate risks and the energy transition to enable the entire board – rather than to a single director who is a ‘climate expert’ – to provide appropriate oversight of the business plan and goals, ”the document states. The asset manager could vote against directors if a company has not provided “a credible plan to transition its business model to a low-carbon economy.” In other cases, BlackRock is open to supporting proposals for shareholders who will force the company to make changes, if it believes “attention to the problem could be accelerated” Over the past three years, BlackRock has increased pressure on companies to take more aggressive action to reduce their environmental impact Last year, he joined Climate Action 100, an investor group with $ 52 trillion in assets that works to coordinate investor attempts to address the climate challenge. BlackRock’s activism has coincided with eight of the world’s largest economies setting net emission reduction targets This number will rise to nine if US President Joe Biden keeps his election promise Climate experts have said new instructions will not go far enough to help the world avoid catastrophic warming After years of criticism from activists, BlackRock last year voted against the management of 69 companies that were part of a group of 440 that it classifies as intensive carbon This year it expands that universe to 1,000 companies, accounting for 90% of direct emissions from all companies it invests in. BlackRock has refused to share companies on the longest list “Voting against boards is one way important for the world’s largest asset manager to take its heavy responsibility seriously, ”said Katrin Ganswindt, a finance activist at the non-profit organization Urgewald, in a statement “However, without the real threat of exclusion, this policy update remains yet another paper tiger.” Much of BlackRock’s $ 8 trillion in assets is in passive funds that track the indices. one of the reasons BlackRock avoids using the threat of divestment for companies whose climate policies are lagging behind Instead, it focuses on engagement with the company first and uses votes shareholders as a last resortStudies have shown that investors lack consistent climate data to make decisions about their portfolios The BlackRock article emphasizes that companies need to improve emissions disclosure and set tough short, medium and long term targets to reduce emissions. – These are crucial for investors to monitor progress and identify companies leading the energy transition BlackRock previously approved companies reporting climate risks based on frameworks developed by the Working Group on Climate Related Financial Disclosures and Standards sustainability accounting This year he went further by advocating that companies take these steps (Michael R Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg LP, is the chairman of TCFD) Yet companies can disclose climate risks without making plans to reduce their own emissions. “These demands are absolutely necessary, [but] they are by no means sufficient,” said Wolfgang Kuhn, chief financial officer for advocacy group ShareAction, in a statement. BlackRock must ensure that companies “explain how they will reduce their emissions” Recognizing momentum towards Paris Agreement goals, companies must manage transition risk to achieve global greenhouse gas emissions net zero by 2050, “said Sandy Boss, global head of investment management at BlackRock, in an interview” Of course, companies may need to think about physical risks for 2 ° C or other scenarios warming “The warmer the world, the more difficult it will be for companies to adapt to the risks of extreme and unpredictable weather conditions. This is why the Paris Agreement sets two objectives: to keep global warming” well below 2 ° C ”above pre-industrial levels, while aiming to limit it to 15 ° C Achieving net zero globally by 2050 is in line with the temperature target plus ambitious, but BlackRock also wants companies to show they are prepared to face the risks if global warming cannot be limited to 2 ° CThe focus on risk management “indicates that BlackRock is more concerned with protecting itself against the impacts of climate change than curbing its own contributions,” BlackRock lobby group Big Problem said in an analysis “Does BlackRock insist that companies set emissions targets compatible with limiting climate change to 15 ° C?” BlackRock expects businesses to likely find “operational efficiency gains” by meeting its climate expectations These will lower costs by lowering energy use, deploying new technologies and reducing waste , which she says will create more value for shareholders He also says that companies should only use carbon offsets, which involve paying for someone else to reduce emissions, “in addition to, but not in replacement of, substantial and long-lasting emission reductions. term“While the company’s instructions provide more detail on its climate thinking than before, it is even less specific than many advocates have requested.
