(Reuters) – United Parcel Service Inc’s multi-billion-dollar effort to revamp its network helped it exceed profit expectations in the crucial holiday fourth quarter, driving down costs as e-commerce deliveries surged to record levels. Shares jumped 5.2 percent to $106.47 in midday trading after UPS also said its efforts would propel growth in adjusted operating profit by around 13 percent this year. “Our strategies are paying off and giving us profit improvement,” UPS Chief Executive David Abney told Reuters cool cufflinks.

UPS and rival FedEx have undertaken massive network revamps to better manage a surge in packages driven by an increasing shift by consumers to online shopping. Those home deliveries are pricier because there are fewer of them in general than those heading to business addresses cool cufflinks. UPS spent $6.6 billion in 2018 as part of a three-year plan to automate package-sorting hubs, make routes more efficient and to upgrade airplanes and other equipment. The effort is beginning to pay off, said Cowen & Co analyst Helane Becker..

“UPS posted its strongest peak shipping season since at least 2013 .. and these trends should continue as new global sorting hubs come online,” she said. The earnings report lands as growth in European and Asian economies decelerates and the U.S. shows signs of cooling. UPS rival FedEx Corp last month slashed its 2019 forecast, citing slowing global trade cool cufflinks. UPS gets 20 percent of its revenue overseas. It is less exposed than FedEx, which gets one-third of its revenue from outside the United States..

UPS is also pushing to recruit more small business customers and to increase expedited services, which are more profitable than delivering e-commerce parcels to shopper doorsteps. Those factors helped “buffer the impacts of global economic softening,” Abney said. To be sure, some impact of the global slowdown on future earnings is expected, with UPS forecasting 2019 earnings per share between $7.45 and $7.75, largely below analysts’ average estimate of $7.69 per share, according to Refinitiv data cool cufflinks.

That outlook “likely factors in the .. continued uncertainty regarding U.S.-China trade relations and Brexit,” Becker said. Atlanta-based UPS affirmed planned capital spending of 8.5 percent to 10 percent of 2019 revenue, in line with 2018. Net income fell to $453 million, or 52 cents per share, in the fourth quarter ended Dec. 31, from $1.10 billion, or $1.26 per share, a year earlier, when it booked a gain from changes to U.S. tax law cool cufflinks. UPS booked a $1.2 billion after-tax pension charge, double that from a year earlier, as the U.S. stock market swooned in the fourth quarter..

NEW YORK (Reuters) – The United States and China made “some progress” in addressing differences over intellectual property rights and market access issues, but still have gaps in other structural issues, U.S. Chamber of Commerce officials briefed on the trade talks said on Thursday. “What we’re really seeing right now is a focus around piracy and criminalization of certain IP activity. We’re not even really seeing clarity around trade secrets,” said Myron Brilliant, head of international affairs at the business group swank 10k gold cufflinks.

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Blackstone Group LP, the world’s largest manager of alternative assets, said on Thursday fourth-quarter earnings slumped 42 percent from a year earlier to $722 million, hurt by lower performance fees. Distributable earnings – the actual cash available for paying dividends – were 57 cents per unit in the fourth quarter, compared with $1 per unit a year earlier, when earnings were boosted by a windfall from the sale of European warehouse firm Logicor. Fee-related earnings, the amount Blackstone earns from management fees and a component of distributable earnings, were up 23 percent year on year at $433 million swank 10k gold cufflinks. Assets managed by Blackstone hit a record $472 billion at the end of 2018..

Despite the earnings drop, the results were described as “modestly positive” by Credit Suisse analyst Craig Siegenthaler, who rates the stock “outperform.”. At midday, Blackstone shares were up 1.7 percent at $33.70. Blackstone, which manages assets like private equity and real estate, also said it would pay a quarterly distribution of 58 cents per common unit, slightly ahead of analysts’ estimates for 57 cents, according to Refinitiv data. The firm’s private equity portfolio was down 2.9 percent in the quarter as the benchmark S&P 500 stock index dropped about 14 percent, its worst three months in more than 7 years. Its private equity portfolio surged 19.1 percent for 2018 swank 10k gold cufflinks.

Peer Apollo Global Management on Thursday reported its private equity fund depreciated 10.9 percent in the quarter and was down 9.8 percent for 2018. Blackstone said its dry powder – the amount it has raised from investors but yet to invest – hit $112.9 billion, and firm President and Chief Operating Officer Jonathan Gray said the recent market volatility has created a buying opportunity. “With pricing for risk assets down meaningfully over the past 6 months, it’s a more interesting time to deploy capital globally,” Gray said in an earnings call swank 10k gold cufflinks.

Blackstone said last week it would focus on distributable earnings as its primary performance metric, instead of economic net income, or ENI, a non-GAAP measure that reflects the mark-to-market valuation gains or losses on its portfolio. The move follows those of peers KKR & Co and Carlyle Group in dropping the esoteric ENI metric, as they try to make their businesses easier for investors to understand. Under generally accepted accounting principles, Blackstone posted a net loss attributable to the firm of $10.9 million for the quarter swank 10k gold cufflinks.

Culp ruled out selling GE’s $40-billion aircraft leasing unit, quelling concerns that jettisoning the profitable unit would sink GE Capital. He also said GE is “reviewing every single project and contract” in its power unit. Investors seemed euphoric, if a little myopic. “The only relevant data in the quarterly numbers is that actual sales and the free cash flow from the industrials business were better than expected,” William Blair analyst Nicholas Heymann said. GE’s lengthy presentation contained numerous warnings and unknowns personalised cufflinks for groom from bride. Cash is likely to decline in 2019, but GE would not say by how much; GE is still in “early innings” of turning around its power business, where revenue will fall again in 2019; and GE will provide detail about its toxic long-term care insurance liabilities in February. It took a $65-million charge for insurance in the latest quarter, compared with a $6.2 billion charge and $15 billion in provisions a year ago..

It also did not provide more detail on ongoing regulatory investigations of its accounting for long-term care policies and power-plant services contracts. “The results are better than expected because expectations were so low,” said Erik Gordon, a professor at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business. “The company still faces the huge challenges of managing its mountain of debt and restoring investor confidence in the accuracy of its numbers.”. But some said Culp’s new candor and an investor relations chief plucked from Wall Street had gone a long way to restoring credibility after years of happy talk, earnings landmines and a class-action lawsuit that alleges accounting fraud personalised cufflinks for groom from bride.

“Power is still in free-fall,” said Scott Davis, analyst at Melius Research, in a note. But GE is providing “an honest assessment of the problems and (a) realistic plan to fix them .. So the relief rally is explainable.”. The results showed GE had strengthened its cash position and chipped away $21 billion from its massive debt, two issues that hit the stock in tumultuous 2018. The 127-year-old conglomerate was booted from the Dow Jones Industrial Average, had its credit ratings cut to three notches above junk, slashed its quarterly dividend to a penny, restated earnings for the prior two years and saw a $10 billion fossil-fuel power acquisition turn sour as wind and solar power gained momentum while GE’s gas-turbine business struggled with faulty turbine blades personalised cufflinks for groom from bride.

GE said its power unit took $400 million in charges in the fourth quarter, including a small amount for blade repairs at dozens of customers around the world. That was on top of $240 million for blade repairs in the third quarter personalised cufflinks for groom from bride. GE booked a $666 million profit for the fourth quarter and revenue rose 5 percent to $33.3 billion, above analyst estimates of $32.6 billion, according to Refinitiv IBES. Industrial free cash flow of $4.9 billion in the quarter, topped the $4 billion threshold that investors were looking to beat, Gordon Haskett analyst John Inch wrote in a note..

FRANKFURT (Reuters) – Time is running out for Deutsche Bank to turn around on its own, making a merger with rival Commerzbank more likely, two people with knowledge of the matter said on Thursday. Bank executives, analysts, government officials and some investors thought until some months ago that both banks had more time to turn around independently, but that opinion has recently changed, one of the people said.

Whitworth said it was one of the industry’s most successful new products of 2018, boosting sales and margins and bringing in more female drinkers father of the bride cufflinks i loved her first. The company hopes some Bud Light Orange drinkers will become regular Bud Light fans. Bud Light has partnerships with 28 of the 32 NFL teams, including this season’s finalists, the Los Angeles Rams and the Boston-based New England Patriots. But its marketing efforts with them have been modest to date, including special cans showing each team’s logo..

Earlier this season, Bud Light focused on Cleveland, whose team, the Browns, was experiencing one of the longest losing streaks in the sport. When the Browns finally won, the brewer set up “victory fridges” in bars across the city father of the bride cufflinks i loved her first. Bud Light’s share of core beer sales there grew as a result, Whitworth said. Citing another localized effort, Whitworth pointed to Philadelphia, the nation’s sixth largest city. Bud Light offered free beer to fans of the Eagles when they won their first Super Bowl in 2018. This season the company unveiled a statue to commemorate the “Philly Special,” a trick play in which the quarterback turned receiver for a touchdown in the championship game..

Whitworth said the approach led to Bud Light sales growth of 9 percent in Philadelphia in the first half of 2018. “They had an army of people handing out beer at the parade,” said Pete Ciarrocchi, chief of Chickie and Pete’s, a popular chain of sports bars in the Philadelphia area. The brewer’s U.S. arm is hoping the sales boost will help build long-term loyalty. In one potentially positive sign, Philadelphian Peter Rosa, who normally chooses regional craft brands such as Dogfish Head and Troeg, said he turned to Bud Light this season when watching his beloved Eagles father of the bride cufflinks i loved her first.

SYDNEY (Reuters) – A former Australian lawmaker retired from the board of the local arm of China’s Huawei Technologies Co Ltd on Friday, potentially weakening the firm’s efforts to withstand government moves to restrict its market access on security grounds. John Brumby, a former premier of the state of Victoria, will leave the world’s biggest maker or telecommunications equipment on March 1 after eight years as a director of it’s Australian subsidiary father of the bride cufflinks i loved her first. Brumby’s exit reduces Huawei’s influence in Canberra at a time when Western nations increase scrutiny of Chinese telcoms equipment makers over concern that China’s government could use their products for espionage. Huawei says the concern is unfounded..

Brumby was a key figure in Huawei’s unsuccessful efforts to prevent Australia’s conservative government banning the company from participating in the country’s fifth-generation (5G) communications network last year. “The timing of my retirement from the board is completely unrelated to any recent commentary regarding China and Huawei,” Brumby said in an emailed statement father of the bride cufflinks i loved her first. “I remain a strong supporter of closer ties between Australia and China, particularly in the fields of investment, trade, education and R&D.”..

The Super Bowl’s huge and diverse audience has makers of cars, beer and other consumer goods scrambling to create eye-catching commercials that are sometimes more memorable than the game. Budweiser this year will bring back its iconic Clydesdale horses, while telling drinkers that the beer is produced with renewable energy from wind power. Bud Light has continued its mock medieval ad series. Driven by the need to pay off some $100 billion from its 2016 purchase of rival SABMiller, the company, which is known for acquisitions and cost savings, has made top-line growth its priority gucci cufflinks amazon. U.S. management, overhauled in late 2017, believes it is on course to rebound in the company’s biggest market. Part of that is the local-ad focus and fresh versions of 143-year-old staple Budweiser, as well as Bud Light – available now in an orange flavor..

The two main brands make up 56 percent of its U.S. beer sales, according to market research company Euromonitor International. That is down from more than 60 percent in 2013. Whitworth, a former Marine, CIA officer and PepsiCo Inc director, said the goal is to boost the brand’s shares and eventually halt their sales decline. AB InBev has a 36.4 percent share of the U.S gucci cufflinks amazon. beer market, according to Euromonitor, followed by Molson Coors and Constellation Brands. In general, mainstream lagers including Bud and Bud Light have fallen, while the shares of craft and imports have risen, according to market research group Nielsen. Drinkers have also shifted to wine and spirits..

Executives at Heineken, the world’s second largest beer maker, have said brewers need to work together to win back drinkers. Industry leaders say there still is a space for mainstream beer, which is cheaper and less caloric than many crafts. “When (fans)are watching an NFL game, that’s a four to five hour experience gucci cufflinks amazon. I’m not sure it’s a craft moment,” said Jonnie Cahill, Heineken USA’s chief marketing officer. Given recent trends, Anheuser-Busch needs the equivalent of a ‘Hail Mary’ pass. Its share of beer sales in the United States, its biggest market, is set to have declined 0.50 percentage points in 2018 after a 0.75 drop in 2017. That may seem slight, but the trend is in the wrong direction..

A return to growth is not imminent. “It’s a supertanker and it’s not going to turn on a six-pence. I think it’s going to be a slow journey,” said Trevor Stirling, a London-based beverage analyst at Bernstein Research gucci cufflinks amazon. AB InBev’s share of the U.S. beer market has declined every year but one since its formation in 2008, when Belgium-based InBev bought America’s Anheuser-Busch. Budweiser has steadily fallen. Bud Light’s share last rose in 2012, when it rolled out an offshoot: Bud Light Lime-A-Rita, a margarita-flavored brew with double the alcohol and calories of Bud Light..

Despite the revival, Anheuser-Busch said it has learned that the company should not stray too far from a brand’s roots. “Those extensions, they didn’t necessarily reinforce the mother brand’s position,” Whitworth said. The brewer removed “Bud Light” from Lime-a-Rita cans this year gucci cufflinks amazon. Last summer, it launched Bud Light Orange, brewed with orange peels. The product, with slightly more calories, is sweet and fruity, akin to an orange soda with alcohol, some drinkers say..

“Natural gas is becoming increasingly popular under the government’s green push. And its relatively less risky than oil under long-term off-take deals,” said a state oil executive. Companies, however, will hold off drilling in disputed territorial waters of the South China Sea due to technological challenges and the lack of experienced global partners willing to risk exploring those areas, analysts said. Beijing claims about 90 percent of the South China Sea, whose estimated energy potential varies widely, although geologists believe it holds more gas than oil tateossian compass cufflinks. Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan also claim parts of the key waterway..

Sinopec, traditionally a refiner rather than a driller, has the smallest resource base and may lag its peers, analysts say. Sinopec’s proven oil reserves by end-2017 could last less than six years of production, versus CNOOC’s 10 years, while Sinopec’s gas reserve life of 8 years is dwarfed by PetroChina’s 24 years, according to calculations based on company filings. Sinopec is expected to boost spending this year, including in developing its second shale gas target, Weirong block, in Sichuan. But the momentum of making new finds is waning, said company officials tateossian compass cufflinks.

SINGAPORE (Reuters) – China’s national oil companies are raising spending on domestic oil and gas drilling to the highest levels since 2016, responding to Beijing’s call to boost national energy security. Below lists key basins and blocks where China’s state energy giants are increasing drilling activities and discoveries, mostly of natural gas, according to company reports over the past few months. CNPC announced in late 2018 an oil discovery at Mahu in the Junggar basin which has 400 million tonnes of oil in place, one of the largest oil finds onshore China in years. Roughly 100 million tonnes will be technically recoverable tateossian compass cufflinks.

Mahu’s annual output will top 3 million tonnes per year in three years, a big addition to the 10-million tonne per year Xinjiang field tateossian compass cufflinks. Calling it a breakthrough in an earlier untapped region, PetroChina Co Ltd in late 2018 struck sizeable oil and gas flows in exploration well Zhongqiu-1 in the Tarim basin. Zhongqiu-1 tested a daily natural gas flow of 330,000 cubic meters and condensate of 21.4 cubic meters. The well is located in the southern part of Kuche trough in the Tarim basin, part of a 5,200 square-km exploration zone..

CNPC struck daily gas flows of 225,000 cubic meters at exploration well Yongtan-1, in Sichuan province’s Jianyang city, the firm said in December, part of a 350 square-km gas-rich acreage of volcanic rock layers. Production at CNPC’s flagship shale gas play Chuannan in Southern Sichuan hit a daily record of 20.11 million cubic meters in late December, up from 12 million cubic meters in October.

“With oil prices at $50, $60 and $70..we’re making decent profits,” Yuan Guangyu, CNOOC’s Chief Executive Officer, said last week. CNPC, Asia’s largest oil and gas producer and parent of PetroChina, is boosting risk exploration investment five-fold to 5 billion yuan ($741 million) this year from 1 billion yuan last year. But with oil reservoirs maturing and new discoveries tending to be smaller and more costly, even more drilling is unlikely to reverse China’s declining oil outlook, analysts say swank lion cufflinks.

China, set to remain the world’s top oil buyer for years to come, is forecast to slip to the 10th largest global oil producer in 2020, down from No.5 for most of last decade, said Wood Mackenzie swank lion cufflinks. “China will likely continue on the same path as it has in recent years – an overwhelming focus on new gas production, leading to continued decline in its oil output,” said Angus Rodger, research director of Asia-Pacific upstream at Wood Mackenzie. GRAPHIC: China’s top-3 oilmajors – tmsnrt.rs/2HCX2As..

With Beijing pushing to reduce energy import dependence and hit environmental targets, gas output is forecast by analysts to rise at 6-8 percent a year through 2020 swank lion cufflinks. China, the world’s No.3 gas consumer, overtook Japan as the world’s top gas importer in October. PetroChina, which produces some 70 percent of the country’s gas output, will lead the drive, adding thousands of wells in southwestern Sichuan, northern Ordos and northwest Tarim basin, CNPC says on its website. The major is also ramping up shale development in Sichuan, seeking to catch up with Sinopec Corp which has pioneered China’s nascent shale push. Despite almost a decade of drilling, shale makes up just 6 percent of China’s total gas output because of complex geology and high costs of development..

PetroChina raised its shale gas output 40 percent last year to 4.3 billion cubic meters, while Sinopec’s production was largely flat at 6 bcm. “Controlling the largest and best acreage, CNPC has been ramping up aggressively capital and human resource deployment over the past 3-4 months in Sichuan shale,” said Woodmac analyst Max Petrov who tracks Chinese majors’ investment swank lion cufflinks. Sinopec declined comment. CNPC did not respond to Reuters’ request for comment. Beyond 2020, deepwater discoveries in the South China Sea, such as Linghui 17-2, some 150km (90 miles) off China’s southernmost province of Hainan, will lend growth to China’s gas portfolio..

With estimated proven recoverable reserves of 2.5 trillion cubic feet, Lingshui is CNOOC’s single-largest fully owned deepwater gas discovery. BG Group walked away with little success after exploratory drilling at the nearby Lingshui 22-1-1 well in 2010 swank lion cufflinks. Aiming to add 50 percent to gas reserves by 2025, CNOOC is expected to step up drilling in the deepwater acreage of the Pearl River Mouth basin and expand earlier major discoveries including Yacheng and Dongfang, both near Hainan province..
