EMEA Morning Briefing: Stocks to Waver After Wall Street Rally 08 December 2021 - 06:42AM Dow Jones News Print Share On Facebook MARKET WRAPS Watch For: OECD Harmonised Unemployment Rates. Opening Call: European stocks could waver at the open, while U.S. stock futures point to extended gains on Wall Street. The dollar strengthens against the euro and yen. Treasury yields rise. Oil is mixed and gold prices are down. Equities: European stocks could waver at the open after another broad rally on Wall Street as investors wagered that the new variant of the COVID-19 virus won't pose a big threat to the economy. The balance of the latest Omicron updates appears to indicate that another major economic shock isn't coming, which has sparked short covering and a scramble to buy after a few weeks of losses, said ThinkMarkets analyst Fawad Razaqzada. "It's a relief rally," he said. Eventually, though, investors will likely refocus on monetary policy and the pace of the Federal Reserve's tapering program, said Mr. Razaqzada. "That's going to be the next big thing for the market," he said. The Fed is scheduled to hold a two-day meeting of policymakers next week. Uncertainty over Covid and Fed policy, however, may challenge the usual holiday cheer. Additionally, lower trading volumes in the lead-up to the holidays are likely to cause exaggerated moves in either direction, analysts say. "We're in this period where investors are grappling for any news they can find and that, coupled with low liquidity, is leading to some big moves," said Hugh Gimber, a strategist at J.P. Morgan Asset Management. Stocks advanced in Asia, while Japan downgraded its growth estimate for the last quarter to minus-3.6% from an earlier reported contraction of 3.0%.

Gas prices across Europe have pushed higher after the US warned of "nuclear" sanctions against Russia if it invades Ukraine.US President Joe Biden is reportedly weighing up a string of tough measures, including blocking Russia's access to the Swift financial payments system or limiting its ability to convert rubles into dollars, euros or pounds.The threats, which came ahead of talks between President Biden and Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on Tuesday, ratcheted up tensions and fuelled further concerns about the supply of gas to the continent.Benchmark Dutch gas prices rose 6.9pc, while the UK equivalent gained 6.7pc....

11:56amAbandoning new oil and gas risks social unrest, warns Aramco chiefGlobal leaders risk unleashing social unrest unless they keep investing in fossil fuels, the boss of Saudi Arabia's state-owned oil company has warned, .My colleague Matt Oliver has more:Amin Nasser said attempting to switch to renewable energy "virtually overnight" would lead to soaring prices and erode public support for the changes."I understand that publicly admitting that oil and gas will play an essential and significant role during the transition and beyond will be hard for some," he told an industry conference in Texas."But admitting this reality will be far easier than dealing with energy insecurity, rampant inflation and social unrest as the prices become intolerably high, and seeing net-zero commitments by countries start to unravel. The world is facing an ever more chaotic energy transition centred on highly unrealistic scenarios and assumptions about the future of energy."Saudi Arabia relies heavily on hydrocarbon exports and has pledged to become carbon neutral by 2060. However, it cannot do so without continuing to pump out millions of barrels of oil for decades to come.Read Matt's full story here.... Daily Telegraph

Pope Francis has compared the EU to a dictatorship in its attempt to impose 'woke' rules on language.The pope, 84, said the bloc risked falling apart if it became a vehicle for "ideological colonisation" as he left Greece following a four-day trip.Brussels last week withdrew a 32-page guide on inclusive language that advised staff to say "human-induced" instead of "man-made" and to avoid reference to Christmas during the holiday season.Facing an outcry, Helena Dalli, the European Commissioner for Equality, said the guidebook "clearly needed more work....

Ukraine and Nord Stream 2DECEMBER 7, 2021 12 COMMENTSThe EU protests against Russia's seizure of Crimea. The EU says it does not want Russia taking any more of Ukraine. At the same time Germany encourages Russia to put in Nord Stream 2, a second direct pipeline from Russia to Germany to increase German and EU dependence on Russian gas. It also provides a way of diverting gas that might otherwise have flowed through a pipe across Ukraine, with revenues accruing to Ukraine, to a different route and no Ukrainian revenues. For Russia Nord Stream 2 is a double win, weakening  the EU and Ukraine at the same time.Both Germany and the EU are delaying signature on the regulatory arrangements and the contracts to supply gas via the pipeline. They are trying to place more of it under EU law. That will not of course make much difference should Russia at some date in the future decide to use the leverage it could exert from being a major gas supplier to the EU to demand concessions or changes of policy to its liking. For the legal route to work the other side both has to accept the jurisdiction of the EU court and to willingly submit to the views of the other party in the dispute. Russia would  not necessarily do that in practice whatever the initial documents might say.The SPD led new German coalition government includes the Greens and is meant to be taking the faster pursuit of net zero seriously. Greens do not usually welcome new sources of fossil fuel delivery. I guess in this case they will be so hard pressed to find ways of implementing their new pledge to try to phase coal out of their electricity generation by 2030  that they will not think they can do without this extra gas as well.Today President Biden will have a video conference with President Putin. Ukraine will doubtless  be high up the agenda. The USA has told the world of a build up of Russian troops near Ukraine's eastern border. One of the many things Presidents Biden and Trump agree about is the undesirability of Nord Stream 2. As it gets close to going ahead President Biden will need to find ways to warn Russia off using Ukraine's greater weakness to his advantage..... John Redwood

While Shell Resists Breakup, Rivals See Opportunity From Spinoffs Italy's Eni and other European energy conglomerates are spinning off parts of their low-carbon energy assets or considering such moves to boost returns published : 6 Dec 2021 at 04:30 writer: Ben Dummett THE WALLSTREET JOURNAL Royal Dutch Shell PLC is standing firm against Third Point LLC's call for a breakup of the oil giant to retain and attract investors. But that isn't stopping Eni SpA and other European energy conglomerates from targeting similar moves to boost shareholder returns. Shell has defended its integrated strategy by saying its legacy oil-and-gas assets are needed to fund its investments in lower-carbon energy. But Daniel Loeb's Third Point says the structure is too unwieldy to value Shell. Instead, the U.S.-based activist suggests the company, which plans to consolidate its dual British and Dutch structure and relocate its headquarters to London, should consider separating its legacy operations from its renewables investments to boost returns and accelerate carbon-dioxide-emission reductions. The standoff shows the challenges energy companies face maintaining their record of dividend payouts while managing the more recent pressures of reaping full value for their increasing investments in green energy. Eni's solution: spinning off a minority stake of its retail energy and renewables business next year through an initial public offering. The move isn't as extreme as the breakup Third Point is pushing for at Shell, but the aims are similar: Simplify the company's structure, in this case, to attract a higher valuation and a lower cost of capital. That will allow the spun-off company to raise money more cheaply to expand the alternative energy business as more investors bet on growing demand for low-carbon assets over fossil fuels like oil and gas. Analysts and investors say it is too early to know if Eni's IPO strategy will succeed over the longer term. It has paid off so far, with the stock outperforming Shell and other European rivals BP PLC and TotalEnergies SE since the plan's approval in October. The move by Rome-based Eni "is a potential experiment for the rest of the sector, and if investors are receptive, we expect others to follow suit in the coming months and years," said Biraj Borkhataria, a London-based analyst at RBC Capital Markets. Spain's Repsol SA is another major oil producer considering splitting out its low-carbon assets, and it is expected to make a decision next year. Spanish electricity utility Iberdrola SA in July indicated it may list part of its offshore wind-farm business in an IPO. Eni's renewables business oversees a network of wind-farm and solar-power projects across parts of Europe, the U.S., Asia, Australia and Africa. The company aims to expand its installed capacity of renewable energy to 60 gigawatts in 2050 from 1 gigawatt last year. That business's potential value suffers because it is dwarfed by the company's lower-growth traditional oil-and-gas business, measured by operating profit. Eni's enterprise value trades at 3.5 times to its estimated earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, according to S&P Capital IQ. By comparison, Denmark-based wind-farm operator Oersted A/S and U.S. alternative energy giant NextEra Energy Inc. each trade around 16 times that profit measurement. Eni didn't disclose a valuation target for the new business when it detailed financial forecasts for the new company on Nov. 22. Eni's shares have risen 3.6% since the IPO announcement, while Shell's have declined 1.3%, France's TotalEnergies has slipped 0.8% and BP is 1.2% lower. The recent outperformance of Eni's shares relative to its peers shows that the spinoff plan has played a central role in the stock's strength, said Giacomo Romeo, an analyst at Jefferies International. Spanish infrastructure and energy company Acciona SA has already demonstrated some of the benefits of a spinoff. In July, it listed a minority stake of its business that builds and operates wind- and solar-power projects. Corporacion Acciona Energias Renovables SA trades near 25 times its projected earnings estimates, above the parent company's multiple of 22 times. By spinning off low-carbon assets, integrated energy companies create businesses that can appeal to institutional investors like the Ford Foundation and Dutch pension fund Horeca & Catering. These institutions are part of a growing number that are ending investments in fossil fuels or selling assets to help reduce global warming. In September, Horeca & Catering sold out of its €250 million, equivalent to $283 million, worth of fossil-fuel stocks including Eni, Shell, BP and Exxon Mobil Corp. The fund, which oversees €16 billion in assets, would still be allowed to consider investing in Eni's low-carbon business following its spinout into a separate publicly traded company. That assumes any revenue from oil and gas was less than 50% of the total, said Bas van Ooijen, a senior investment manager at the fund. The Ford Foundation said a month later it planned to end fossil-fuel investments and that the move could undermine future returns. Horeca & Catering said its analysis shows no significant difference in its overall returns over the long term whether oil-and-gas stocks were included or excluded from its portfolio. "There will be more cases where [integrated] companies will see an issue between what independent [alternative energy] players are valued at and the value of their low-carbon assets, especially as these businesses grow,'' said Mr. Romeo, the analyst at Jefferies.

Chap being interviewed in Southern Arizona. He said in the summer it is so hot at night that he would need the equivalent of 10 batteries ($100,000 worth of batteries) of electricity to run his air conditioning over night - for most instances batteries are not feasible to store enough electricity to run most peoples life's.

I am staggered at how environmentally unfriendly it is to make solar panels or wind turbines. One needs to look at the LCA (Life Cycle Assessment), EV's only 30% of their LCA is the fuel the rest is based on the materials to manufacture the car then its complete disposal which is far far more environmentally unfriendly compared to a combustion engine driven cars. The sole reason I'm infavour of EV's is they when driven they produce no SO2 or NOX both terrible contaminants that combustion engine driven cars produce in vast quantities. For this reason is why I'm also very much in favour of Hydrogen power and gas to power our electricity grid system - we need more CO2 in the atmosphere, not less. CO2 is what plants need to live on and they need 1,000ppm to be healthy, to grow more leaves, to grow greener leaves and thereby giving out more Oxygen which we animals need to breathe and live.

I agree totally on the solar panels - expensive, not very efficient and ugly. As I do so few miles I will be keeping my petrol and diesel cars - both low mileage too. I have just had a new gas boiler too - fantastic! Suet the philistine.
