Shareholdersshow disdain for Dell chief

first_img DELL founder Michael Dell survived an investor savaging during his re-election to chief executive, with more than a quarter of voters withholding their support.Shareholders are furious at the firm’s fall from being the biggest computer manufacturer in the world to its current third place behind Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Acer. Dell’s stock is down more than 50 per cent since August 2008 and the company recently paid $100m (£64m) to settle a government probe into some of its accounting practices.The company has made a mix of major and small acquisitions in the past year as it tries to diversify beyond personal computers. This week it said it had agreed to pay $1.15bn to buy data storage company 3PAR.But the strategy was not enough for 25.1 per cent of Dell shareholders, who refused to back the chief executive at the firm’s annual meeting on 12 August.The firm is facing fierce competition from rivals including Oracle and Cisco Systems, which are expanding into new corporate technology markets, while smartphone and tablet technology from Apple and Google threatens to erode PC sales.Meanwhile, Hewlett-Packard (HP), which dazzled Wall Street with rock-steady performances during Mark Hurd’s five-year reign, also faces investor pressure.Its shares are down 11 per cent since Hurd announced his abrupt departure on 6 August amid a sexual harassment scandal.It will hold its quarterly earnings conference with analysts later today. The focus will be on HP’s strategy and its ability to keep up momentum across its diverse businesses.

The two southern hemisphere exporters had been expected to help offset a shortfall in Russian supply. “These are two origins that are timed for the second half of the export campaign. If there are problems with them, where are we going to go and get wheat?” one trader said. November milling wheat was up €7 or 3.17 per cent at €227.50 a tonne. It earlier marked an intraday high of €229.25, the highest level since 6 August, as it moved closer to a contract high of €236 set on 5 August. Euronext re???mained underpinned by strong export activity as French milling wheat remained highly sought-after amid a Russian export freeze and a lack of quality in Germany’s rain-blighted harvest, which boosted premiums for milling-grade wheat.Traders cited interest from Moroccan buyers in the light of the suspension of the country’s import tariffs, while data from French ports showed loadings scheduled for a range of Middle Eastern destinations including Syria as well as a cargo due for Nigeria. whatsapplast_img read more

GE closes $4.6bn of deals to build up its business…

first_img General Electric (GE) yesterday made a pair of major acquisitions despite being spurned in a third attempt to buy a UK oil firm, as the largest US conglomerate builds up its energy and finance arms.GE reached a $3bn (£1.9bn) deal to buy Dresser, a maker of gas engines used by oil and gas production firms. “Dresser has a global franchise and brand with 60 per cent of sales outside of North America, which will be accelerated by GE’s global footprint,” said John Krenicki, a GE vice chairman of its energy infrastructure division.Its GE Capital finance arm, which had been its weakest point through the recession had bought $1.6bn of retail credit assets from Citigroup.GE has been an active acquirer over most of the past decade, and chief executive Jeff Immelt has said the company will focus on deals sized at $1bn to $3bn in areas that complement its core industrial and finance businesses. The company is in the process of selling its NBC Universal media business to the biggest US cable operator Comcast.The payoff of the company’s latest round of deals is yet to be seen, said senior portfolio manager Peter Klein at Fifth Third Asset Management.

Individual greed and errors of judgment on the part of the bankers were one. But there were much more powerful forces driving the way to catastrophe. They included badly designed policy frameworks, errors of judgment on the part of government, central banks, and regulators, and bad macroeconomic management.”The CBI director-general said that persisting with laying the blame at the banks’ door would result in the “wrong responses” to the sector’s problems, including the introduction of a much higher banking levy, which he said would place the highest burden on banking customers.Lambert added that it is “irresponsible” for politicians to caricature investment banks as casinos, warning that “overheated rhetoric” has already deterred at least one foreign player from investing in the UK market.But he urged bankers to step up to the plate voluntarily to demonstrate sensitivity in the area of compensation, particularly as the public spending cuts start to bite in the New Year.“If trust has to be built on a sense of fair dealing, then the combination of pay freezes and job losses in the public sector with large bonuses in the City would be toxic in the extreme,” Lambert warned, calling on banks to act collectively on compensation and resist the temptation to “poach disaffected mega-stars”.

Pru gets lift from higher sales in Asia

first_img whatsapp Tags: NULL KCS-content Share INSURANCE giant Prudential yesterday said its sales grew on the back of growing momentum in its Asian business. The insurer, which was forced to back out of a $35.5bn bid for AIG’s Asian insurance unit AIA earlier this year, said yesterday total group sales rose 24 per cent to £2.4bn in the first nine months of the year. The company reported new business profit of £1.3bn for the first nine months of 2010, up from £1.1bn last year and in line with expectations.Group sales for the third quarter alone were £809m compared to £689m last year an increase of 17 per cent. The Pru’s Asian unit contributed a significant amount to total net business profit, adding 46 per cent of the total with Asian net business profit up 34 per cent to £621m for the year to date compared to £465m a year earlier.Sales for the year so far were up 32 per cent to £1.06bn while sales for the third quarter were £533m, up 25 per cent on the previous year ?– the highest sales figure for the Asian business in the third quarter to date. In the UK, now the smallest slice of the insurer’s business, it said it was focused on a strategy of writing new business with sustainable cash generation and capital preservation. Total sales were up three per cent to £548m for the first nine months compared to £282m a year earlier. Net business profit grew 14 per cent year to date to £192m from £169m a year earlier. Tidjane Thiam, group chief executive, said Prudential remained well positioned to deliver strong growth and generate strong returns for shareholders. “South East Asia, with its high rates of GDP growth, saving habits and low penetration of insurance products, remains the most attractive long-term opportunity in our industry and the primary focus for our growth and investment,” Thiam added.ANALYST VIEWS: what do you make of prudential’s latest results? EAMON FLANAGAN| SHORE CAPITALAnother terrific set of new business figures from Prudential which is undervalued, especially when the rating of the newly-floated AIA in Asia is factored in.JONATHAN JACKSON | KILLIK & COThe latest results show the success of Prudential’s strategy of focusing on value over volume, and capitalising on the most profitable growth opportunities.BARRIE CORNES | PANMUREThis is a straightforward set of figures and helps reinforce the strength of the group, despite the AIA loss, the company is still delivering in spades.

Indian factory output recovers well…..

first_img KCS-content Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ INDIAN industry continues to grow after suffering a decline in 2009, data accrued by HSBC revealed yesterday.In November industry growth rose to above the long-run average, accelerating for the second successive month.The Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) jumped to 58.4 in November, up from 57.2 in October.The volume of new orders and export business also grew, the former reaching its strongest rate for four months.Yet employment in manufacturing was slightly down. Respondents to the survey cited workers leaving for higher wages in other areas.And inflation remains a problem, with output price inflation now sustained for over a year.“A spike in backlogs suggest tight capacity, which together with rising prices underscores the need for continued monetary policy tightening,” said Leif Eskesen, chief economist at HSBC. whatsapp Share whatsapp Indian factory output recovers well…..

Across the UK, among the worst-hit areas were Yorkshire, the North East and Northern Ireland, all of which already suffer unemployment rates over nine per cent, and saw big drops in total employment.London, the East and Scotland saw their unemployment rates fall slightly.“The increase in joblessness is a bit of a standout and markets may focus on it as an example of what may happen in 2011,” said Investec analyst Philip Shaw.
