whatsapp MINING firm BHP Billiton pressured the Australian government to prevent rival Rio Tinto teaming up with Chinese company Chinalco, according to a diplomatic cable released to the Australian media at the weekend. The country’s then-treasurer Wayne Swan told US diplomats last year that BHP had lobbied the government to delay any decision on the $19.5bn (£12.3bn) investment, according to the Wikileaks cable. “BHP has been lobbying extensively to block the deal, highlighting concerns about Chinese investment and the possibility that seats on the Rio board would give the Chinese representatives important insights into the producer side of the annual iron ore price negotiations,” the cable reportedly said. “Treasurer Wayne Swan’s chief of staff has told us on several occasions that BHP has played its cards with consummate skill, in part due to the increasing marginalization of BHP CEO Marius Kloppers as BHP chairman Don Argus has taken the lead in lobbying.” State-owned Chinalco blamed Rio when its plan to buy around 18 per cent of the company collapsed last year, claiming that disagreements over board members and a bond issue thwarted its plans. Swan said yesterday that the report might not be accurate, telling reporters: “Just because there is reportage of conversations and they are contained in cables, doesn’t necessarily mean those cables are accurate, well grounded or in context.“Because it was a commercial matter it wasn’t a matter that ultimately came to government for decision,” he added.In a separate cable, diplomats discussed claims that Rio Tinto privately gave the Chinese government information on former staff during a corruption investigation.According to media reports on the cables, Rio found small amounts of cash on several employees that it could not vouch for, and passed this information on to China’s public security bureau.The FTSE-listed company publicly backed its staff before their convictions last year, describing the allegations as “wholly without foundation”. Several ex-Rio staff are still serving jail terms in China. Neither company commented on the cables.

One of the key aspects of the Foundation’s mission is to educate, empower and create greater opportunity for at-risk children to become independent, productive and contributing members of society.The commitment from the Larry and Helen Hoag Foundation further solidifies the early momentum that the Institute has gathered after its initial launch in early August. For the second consecutive year, the Foundation will support the Rose Bowl Institute’s Women’s Empowerment Symposium which will take place virtually as a free educational platform for high school juniors and seniors and college-aged students on September 16th, 17th and 18th. The Symposium program aims to develop strong leaders among students with a goal of expanding nationally due to the growth of virtual and digital platforms.The three days of the symposium will focus on programming surrounding the three key pillars of the Rose Bowl Institute that include sportsmanship, leadership, and citizenship.

May 23, 2019 942 Views Home / Daily Dose / Latest Look at Housing Trends Tagged with: New Homes Prices Sales New home sales were at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 673,000 in April 2019, 6.9% below March’s estimate but 7.0% higher year over year, according to the latest joint release from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The median sales price of new houses sold in April 2019 was $342,200, and the average sales price was $393,700.Genworth Mortgage Insurance Chief Economist Tian Liu notes that the below-average data is not all bad news. Liu notes that the homebuilding season is still progressing well.“New home sales for April came in below expectations. This does not necessarily mean that the spring home selling season is not going well for homebuilders,” Liu said in a statement. “Instead, homebuilders may be taking advantage of the lower interest rates and surging buyer interests by raising prices. As a result, sales volume came in slightly below expectations. The spring selling season is still progressing well for homebuilders, as the run rate for the year to date is still ahead of last year’s level.”According to realtor.com Chief Economist Danielle Hale, April’s data indicates potential increases later in the year.“This trend supports the fact that even though there will be ups and downs, lower mortgage rates have started to entice buyers this spring and will likely lead to an eventual pick up in existing home sales in the months to come,” Hale said. “We could see further improvement in new construction over the next year as home building still remains behind population and job growth in most areas. Strength in orders has already boosted builder confidence, as well as new construction. The median new home sales price, which had moderated the past few months, picked up as we see an increase of sales in the median and higher price tiers.”LendingTree Chief Economist Tendayi Kapfidze notes that new home sales data is “always messy.” Kapfidze notes that sales fell despite interest rates moving lower and aiding affordability.“The Census Bureau notes in the release that ‘it takes 6 months to establish a trend for new houses sold’ as they are among the most volatile and revision prone economic data series,” Kapfidze said. “At LendingTree we prefer the 3-month average to balance timeliness with information value. The 3-month average of 688,000 is the highest since the financial crisis.”Inventory declined in April as well, and Kapfidze notes that the decline from 7.4 months supply in December to 5.9 in April may lead to price pressures.“A lack of supply for lower valued homes may also be contributing to the mix of homes sold including more homes above $500,000,” he states.
