The sites bought for a mere $7m (£4.5m) from Shell in 1997 now trade on the Mumbai exchange at a market value of $14bn. Cairn’s flagship oilfields in Rajasthan are predicted to churn out 90,000 barrels a day in 2011, rising to 125,000 barrels the year after.Vedanta is not the first resources group to set its eye on the diversifying properties of fuel exploration. BHP Billiton derives a decent chunk of its turnover from oil, and Brazil’s Vale is also looking to take stakes in energy assets. The aim is to flatten out revenues by hedging against high fuel costs during bull phases.But Vedanta shareholders have every reason to feel nervous. The company is halfway through a monster capex programme and, after the $1.3bn purchase of Anglo Zinc in May, would probably need to raise either fresh debt or equity to fund the deal. Although it has $7.2bn on its balance sheet, Vedanta’s existing commitments mean it is far from cash-rich.Until the market has clarity on price and funding, expect more pressure on Vedanta’s shares.

Forget the top Cash ISA rate. I’d pocket 5%+ here

Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 10th January, 2021 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today… The top Cash ISA rate on the market at the moment is just 0.6% for an easy access product. I can get a little more if I’m willing to lock my money up, although not by much. The best five-year fixed rate product on the market at the moment offers an interest rate of 1.15%. In comparison, I can achieve a significantly higher rate of return by investing in UK shares. Indeed, a handful of blue-chip stocks currently support dividend yields of more than 5%. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Forget the Cash ISAInterest rates available on Cash ISA products today are extremely disappointing. There’s also another drawback — inflation. Over the past few decades, the rate of inflation has averaged around 3% across the UK. It has fallen over the past 12 months, but many analysts expect this trend to reverse as the pandemic recedes. If the rate of inflation returns to 3%, an investor who has locked up their money for five years at 1.15% will actually see a negative rate of return after inflation of -1.85% per annum. As such, I’m extremely wary of Cash ISAs at present. I’d much rather buy UK shares instead. Not only do many UK shares offer dividend yields far above the best interest rates available on Cash ISA products, but they also offer the potential for capital growth. Company earnings tend to grow in line with inflation over the long term. That can translate into share price growth. Therefore, owning UK shares is a great way to protect my hard-earned cash from the wealth-destroying effects of inflation. A better buy A couple of UK shares stand out to me as being a better buy than any Cash ISA product right now. Some examples are the UK supermarket retailer Tesco and telecommunications giant Vodafone. At the time of writing, these two blue-chips support dividend yields of 6.6% and 3.8% respectively. When held in a portfolio together, they could provide an average yield of 5.2% per annum. Some other FTSE 100 options include defence contractor BAE Systems. This company currently supports a dividend yield of 5%, and it has an impressive track record of above-inflation dividend growth. Healthcare and pharmaceutical group GlaxoSmithKline also supports a near 6% dividend yield. This stock should benefit from the general rising demand for healthcare and health products in the years ahead. In the financial sector, shares in insurance giants Aviva and Legal & General support dividend yields of more than 7%. There has been some speculation that the former may reduce its dividend as part of its restructuring plan. However, even if the payout is cut by 50%, the stock would still offer a yield three times higher than the interest rate on the best five-year Cash ISA product on the market today. That’s why I’m confident these FTSE 100 dividend stocks will produce a better return than any Cash ISA in the long term.  Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Storm Damage Estimates Still Climbing

first_img SHARE Storm Damage Estimates Still Climbing Facebook Twitter Crop damage estimates from last week’s derecho storm are still climbing. The violent thunderstorms traveled over 700 miles from Nebraska to Indiana.The storm was so powerful, as of last Thursday, more than 300,000 people hadn’t had power restored in northern Illinois and Iowa, which was the hardest-hit state.The Washington Post says the 70 mile-per-hour winds hit more than 10 million acres of corn and soybeans in Iowa, adding more difficulty to an already challenging year for farmers. Up to 43 percent of the state’s corn and soybean crop suffered some level of damage from the storms, a big blow to the $10 billion agriculture industry that anchors Iowa’s economy.The damage was so extensive that it was even visible on weather satellites that were used to track the storm. Meteorologist Steven Bowen said on Twitter that “This has all the makings of a billion-dollar impact on agriculture in Iowa and Illinois. With that said, it will take some time for farmers to determine how much of the downed crops are salvageable for harvest.” Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Storm Damage Estimates Still Climbing By NAFB News Service – Aug 16, 2020 SHARE Previous articleFarm Bureau and Other Groups Welcome CFAP Deadline ExtensionNext articleCommentary: Big Tech Replaces Big Ag as Public Enemy No. 1 NAFB News Servicelast_img read more

Justice of the Supreme Court, he alleged close connections of the judge with the ruling BJP Government based on an article published in ‘The Wire’ titled ‘Family Ties of Former DGP, SC Judge Cast Conflict of Interest Shadow on Vikas Dubey Probe’ “…two immediate/close relatives of Justice (Retd.) B.S.Chauhan viz. his brother and ‘samadhi’ being legislators with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which runs the government in Uttar Pradesh” – Upadhyay’s plea stated.As regards Shri KL Gupta, the petition avers that he is related with the IG of Kanpur Zone, Shri Mohit Agarwal, where the alleged encounter of Vikas Dubey took place. “Shri K.L. Gupta is related with IG, Kanpur Zone, Shri Mohit Agarwal, where the alleged encounter of Vikas Dubey took place and who is alleged to be involved in fake encounters and thus, is bound to come under the scanner of enquiry/probe”In light of this, the plea contends that “aforesaid two members of Judicial Commissions are disqualified from being part of the commission on account of conflict of interest and bias or likelihood of bias on their part”.The plea goes on to state that the conduct of the State and its functionaries of concealing “vital material facts which go to the very root of the matter” need to be viewed seriously by the Top Court.This, the plea contends makes it discernible that the aforesaid two members are in “active collusion and connivance with the State administration” since BJP is the ruling party in UP and the Chief Minister is alleged to be involved in fake encounters of six accused and “appears to have provided all support to UP Government in contesting the issue pertaining to an independent inquiry into Dubey’s killing.Upadhyay states that not only the aforesaid two members but Shri Shashikant Agrawal & Ravinder Gaur must also be removed from the commission as the “State administration cannot be trusted anymore” and the Judicial Commission/SIT needs to be wholly reconstituted afresh by the Court.”Since the aforesaid members on account of their conflict of interest and being likely to be biased, are disqualified from being members of the Judicial Commission and that being the case, it is not only desirable but also necessary in the interest of the justice, good conscious, equity and fair play that they are removed from the Judicial Commission/SIT and substituted with persons suggested/named by the Petitioner”The list suggested by Upadhyay includes former Chief Justices of India TS Thakur and RM Lodha, and former Justices Santosh Hegde, Anil R. Dave, Kurian Joseph, Fakkir Mohamed Ibrahim Kalifulla, MY Eqbal, AK Patnaik, Vikramjit Sen, KS Panicker Radhakrishnan, and HL Gokhale.The plea also delves into the issue of discerning what constitutes bias by stating that the “likelihood of bias” but be paid heed to.”Appointments of aforesaid persons/members in Judicial Commission/SIT, are against the basic tenets of Articles 14 and 21 of the Constitution of India and principle of natural justice, which is implicit in Articles 14 and 21 of the Constitution of India and thus, ultimately, violation of fundamental rights of the people of the country to have fair and impartial investigation/trial”Upadhyay had earlier filed an application seeking removal of K L Gupta from the Commission alleging that he had issued press statements supporting the police version of the encounter and was therefore biased. On July 28, the SC dismissed that plea, observing that after considering Gupta’s statements in their entirety, no right minded person would think that he was biased.It was on July 22 that the SC constituted the committee and appointed former SC judge Justice B S Chauhan to lead it, acting on a writ petition field by Upadhyay..The names of the committee members were proposed by the Uttar Pradesh government. Justice Sashi Kant Agarwal, a former judge of the Allahabad High Court, is the third member of the commission, apart from Justice B S Chauhan and K L Gupta.Click Here To Download ApplicationSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
