  • Welsh pension funds eyeing investment in tidal power project

    first_imgA collaboration of Welsh public sector pension funds is considering backing a £1.3bn (€1.5bn) tidal power project.The £16bn Wales Pension Partnership (WPP) – formed by the country’s eight local authority funds – has committed to consider investing in the Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon project. Under the terms of its investment parameters, WPP can spend up to 5% of its pension assets on infrastructure projects – potentially up to £800m.The much-vaunted – and much-delayed – tidal lagoon was a “viable project to invest in”, according to councillor Mark Norris, chair of WPP. He added: “We’re all in favour of looking at investing. It is now dependent on the Westminster government to back the project – and then from there we would take it forward to decide how much to invest.”Although the fund is able to invest up to 5%, Norris said it would “probably be a little less than that to start off”.However, he said the project could provide a viable source of energy to the region – and was much cheaper than building a nuclear power plant. In 2016, pension fund investment was suggested as a solution to a long-running debate about the construction of a nuclear plant on the island of Anglesey on Wales’ north coast.“This is why am little surprised by reticence by the Westminster government not to jump at it,” Norris said. “If you look at solar or wind power, both are sustainable but one relies on whether the sun is out one day and whether there is wind; whereas with tidal energy it is four times a day every day and never stops.”The UK government has been encouraging Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) funds to dedicate more money to infrastructure investments for several years. The eight LGPS asset pools have been encouraged to be “ambitious” with their targets for the asset class.  Source: TidalLagoonPower.comAn artist’s impression of the Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon developmentDevelopment delaysFirst mooted in 2003, the tidal lagoon, which formed part of the government’s 2014 UK National Infrastructure Plan, could create thousands of jobs for the local economy.In 2016, the government commissioned former energy minister Charles Hendry to conduct a report into the role of tidal lagoons. In his final submission, Hendry noted “the evidence is clear that tidal lagoons can play a cost-effective role in the UK’s energy mix”.“My recommendation is… that the Tidal Lagoon Swansea Bay [is] one which would incidentally bring very real and substantial economic and recreational benefits to the Swansea Bay area,” he added.Earlier this week, the Welsh government signalled its approval for the project. In a letter to the UK’s business secretary, Greg Clark, Wales’s first minister Carwyn Jones said there was “a Welsh government commitment to an equity and/or loan investment of £200m”.Alun Cairns, secretary of state for Wales, told UK MPs on Wednesday that he “would really like the tidal lagoon to go ahead, but of course it must prove to be value for money”.Last month the Financial Times quoted a senior government figure as saying the project had not a “cat’s chance in hell” of going ahead. However, Cairns responded: “No announcement has been made on the tidal lagoon because we are still looking at the numbers.“We are doing anything and everything possible to try to make this fit.”A spokesperson for the UK’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy said that the government was considering the findings of the Hendry review into tidal lagoons and “an announcement will be made in due course”.last_img read more

  • McGinley opts for three wild cards

    first_img Press Association Europe captain Paul McGinley has announced he will have three wild cards for next year’s Ryder Cup at Gleneagles. The European points list comprises points gained by players from all Race to Dubai tournaments during the qualification process – which starts at the Wales Open from September 5-8 – with one point equalling one euro. The world points list comprises official world golf ranking points gained in sanctioned tournaments around the world during qualifying. The decision brings McGinley in line with American counterpart Tom Watson, who announced in March that he was reducing his number of picks from four to three. “I have said on a number of occasions that if something ain’t broke then don’t fix it, and I think that applies to the qualification process for the European Ryder Cup team,” said McGinley, whose proposal received unanimous backing from the European Tour’s Tournament Committee during their meeting at Wentworth on Monday night. “You only need to look at the record books to see that we haven’t done too badly of late so I didn’t see the need to make sweeping changes. “I’ve kept the qualification list order the same as Olly (Jose Maria Olazabal) had it for Medinah, the only difference being that I’ve increased the number of picks from two to three. “I’ve done that to give myself a little bit of extra flexibility when it comes to making my selections. Hopefully this will ensure that I have the right players to face the examination paper that Gleneagles will set out next September.” center_img His predecessor Jose Maria Olazabal had just two selections to make for the 2012 match against the United States at Medinah, when he selected Nicolas Colsaerts and Ian Poulter. However, McGinley will be given more of an opportunity to tailor his side with the addition of the third wild card, which means nine automatic qualifying places will be available for the 12-man team, four via the European Tour points list and five from the world points list. last_img read more

  • Nigerian referee Edibi makes Nations Cup list

    first_imgNigeria’s foremost referee Peter Edibi has been invited to officiate during the 30th Orange Africa Cup of Nations taking place between January 17 to February 8 in Equatorial Guinea.A CAF invitation letter dated December 8, addressed to the General Secretary of the Nigeria Football Association, carried the information, requesting Mr Edibi to report in Bata by January 7 2015 at the latest to take part in the fitness test scheduled for January 9, followed by the refresher course for those who will scale the fitness hurdle.Signed by the CAF referees manager Eddy Maillet, the NFF is to ensure that Edibi “arrives in Bata in the best possible  physical condition.”Peter Edibi, one of Africa’s best assistant referees narrowly missed going to the world cup in Brazil after he had been selected to officiate at the FIFA World Club Championship last year in Morocco and was on duty in the third place match.Before then, he was also selected by FIFA for the FIFA U20 World Cup in Turkey. As far back as 2007, Edibi was in the CAF Delegation to the U17 tourney in Togo, graduating to the Africa Cup of nations in Ghana in 2008 and did so well that in the CHAN competition that held in Cote Divoire in 2019 he was in the final match involving Congo DR and Ghana.Again in the Nations Cup in Angola 2010,Edibi  was picked and was also on duty in Sudan for CHAN where he officiated in the semi-finals. That Nigeria did not qualify for the Nations Cup   in Equatorial Guinea /Gabon did not stop CAF from inviting him for the finals in 2012 and     in South Africa in 2013, Edibi was good enough for the final match , but because Nigeria had qualified for the final, was made to handle the third place match.The current appointment is therefore, his fourth Nations Cup appearance in as many tournaments.last_img read more

  • Taking a look at the role of USDA reports in the market

    first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The USDA report last week held few surprises. Corn carryout was slightly lower and beans were slightly higher than expected. There are still feed usage questions with all of the excess milo and wheat in the market, but that might not be resolved until sometime in the future.The corn crop continues to look amazing throughout most of the Corn Belt. Beans are also looking good, but have slipped slightly. Hot and dry forecasts dominate one day and then rain forecasts are shown the next day. Expect concern over corn kernel fill to continue while bean potential to be wide open. Weather’s effects on the corn market may be nearly over after this week.Corn harvest started in southern Texas, and so far the yields are the best ever for this region. As harvest moves north expect the basis to drift lower as corn is more available. Also with the impressive wheat harvest, storage space may be at a premium this year.While some are calling for above trend-line yields, I expect the national corn yield to be trend-line at this point. Even if a heat wave drops yields by five bushels, overall production would still leave balance sheets with more than ample supply. Above trend-line yields would likely suppress prices further. Market actionPotentially the market could trade sideways through the end of the year. So, on 5% of my planned 2016 production, I sold Dec futures at $3.72 and then sold a $3.50 Dec CALL and a $3.50 Dec PUT for 48 cents. This trade expires near Thanksgiving. What Does That Mean?• If corn is below $3.50 near Thanksgiving I sell nothing but collect 68 cents premium (Futures gain of $3.50 to $3.72 = $.22 + $.48 in option premium). This can be added to a later trade.• If corn is between $3.50 and $3.72 I’ve sold corn for $3.98 to $4.20. I collect 48 cents at $3.50 and lose 1 cent for every penny the market is off that number. For instance, I lose 22 cents premium if it is $3.72.• If corn is above $3.72 I’ve sold 5% of my production for $3.72 and I have to sell another 5% of production for $3.98. If this happens I would move this additional sale to 2017 for a 20-cent premium (which is what is available in the market today) and have a sale near $4.20.I don’t really like selling $3.72 futures, but if prices go lower I’m protected with this trade to an extent. However, if prices rally, this trade doesn’t hurt me either. I think the chance of a sideways market is really high at this point. If I’m right, this could be one of my best trades of the year. Market equilibriumUSDA reports can send significant ripples through the market after they are published. Following provides a simplistic overview of how prices are determined, USDA’s role and why it seems impossible to predict future prices with any kind of accuracy. What is job of the market?The job of the market is to “guess” final production and demand levels. The market consists of “futures” for a reason. It’s forward looking and constantly addressing new information to help it place prices at the right point. How does the USDA factor in?The USDA is an independent report that estimates grain production as accurately as possible in the U.S. and around the world. While conspiracy theorists think the USDA puts out numbers to control prices, that shouldn’t be the goal. It is in our nation’s best interest to not have any surprise shortages of food around the world, because this could lead to unstable regimes and security issues for the U.S. Providing accurate and timely reporting on crop production stabilizes prices. If prices were artificially too low, then too much grain would be sold (causing shortages). If prices are too high, it would create a situation similar to what China is currently facing, grain goes unused and begins to deteriorate. How accurate is the USDA?Every year we hear analysts say that the USDA balance sheet is tight and has “no room for margin of error.” This is pretty much the story every year. It’s the job of the market to predict the final outcome of production before it’s ever really known. Realistically, the corn balance sheet has the potential for a 10-bushel per acre swing, which is usually narrowed leading up to harvest. Thus for each bushel the USDA is off, it could cause a price swing of 20 cents.Soybeans only need a two-bushel per acre swing to cause massive volatility in the markets. So a two-bushel drop in trend-line bean yields could push prices $2 per bushel higher (and same with a two bushel increase — a  $2 decrease). This means each tenth of a bushel represents 20 cents to the market price. What happens when the USDA is off on their estimates?If the USDA is off even a bushel on its bean estimate, it’s a 2% miss. For corn a 2% mistake means missing the estimate by 3.32 bushels per acre. This narrower margin for beans is why prices are more volatile around reports. What other information in the USDA report affects prices?Many other demand components affect prices beyond yield estimates:Export counts for last year and estimates for next yearOther country’s weather conditions and crop production can affect supply and demand from that countryFeed demand, which is hard to predict because weather can change demand throughout the year needed for livestock. Maybe we shouldn’t follow the USDA reports so closelyMaybe, but what is the next best substitute? Information from private firms could easily be manipulated for their personal financial gain. Plus, how would private numbers be much better than the USDA? While there may be frustration around the USDA, most traders still use the USDA numbers for estimates as well as private firms.The bottom line is that market prices are based upon “guessing” what will be produced and what will be used. It’s supply and demand. It’s not complicated in theory, but at the same time, very complicated in reality. Weather has a huge impact, and it is still impossible to predict more than two weeks out (if that). So, until weather can be predicted more long-term, it will be virtually impossible to predict prices any better than we currently do.This is why it’s so important to have a plan in place. As a grain producer you need to sell big rallies and certainly when prices move into profitable levels. A $1 per bushel drop in less than a month, for the second year in a row should make every farmer realize that next time around. However each time the market rallies nobody ever thinks it will go back down.Jon grew up raising corn and soybeans on a farm near Beatrice, NE. Upon graduation from The University of Nebraska in Lincoln, he became a grain merchandiser and has been trading corn, soybeans and other grains for the last 18 years, building relationships with end-users in the process. After successfully marketing his father’s grain and getting his MBA, 10 years ago he started helping farmer clients market their grain based upon his principals of farmer education, reducing risk, understanding storage potential and using basis strategy to maximize individual farm operation profits. A big believer in farmer education of futures trading, Jon writes a weekly commentary to farmers interested in learning more and growing their farm operations.Trading of futures, options, swaps and other derivatives is risky and is not suitable for all persons.

  • Video: Cam Newton Is Getting Crushed For Sulking, Walking Out Of Press Conference

    first_imgCam Newton is unhappy during press conference.Cam NewtonThe people who don’t like Cam Newton have more fuel to add to that hate fire. The Carolina Panthers’ quarterback is currently getting crushed on social media for the way he handled himself after his team’s loss to the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl. At his post-game press conference, Newton sullenly sat for roughly three minutes, barely answered any questions and then got up and left. Here’s video of his exit. Panthers Cam Newton barely answered questions and here he exits pic.twitter.com/eNMDpv2sQH— Cam Inman (@CamInman) February 8, 2016And here’s some of the reaction. Cam’s presser was weak.
