By: Nadeem_Walayat

Google passes $500 on the back of a wave of speculative interest, is this the start of another run up in google or are we near a potential slump in the google share price ?

Google passes $500, Is it time to sell ?

Since google floated some 2 years ago at $85, it has had strong run higher to the current price of $505, up 600% since IPO, and up over 50% on the 330 lows seen barely 3 months ago.

Canada's surprise change in income trust tax laws / Companies / Canadian Stock Market

By: Shahla_Walayat

Canada's "Conservative" government recently announced a surprise change in the tax laws that could have come straight from the Kremlin's playbook. The tax change regards a new plan to tax Canada's income trusts. Not only does it come out of the blue, it breaks a pledge made by Canada's Conservative government not to change the trust taxation rules.

Trusts, unlike corporations, pay little or no corporate tax because they were set up to take advantage of a loophole in tax rules. The supposedly offsetting factor is that owners of trust units pay higher tax on income from the trust because a break for corporate dividends doesn't apply. With trusts paying no corporate income tax to Canada or to their province of residence, foreigners paid 15-per-cent withholding tax on investment income going out of Canada.

Google Advertising revenues to pass UK Commercial TV Stations - Channel 4 / Companies / Google

By: Phillipa_Green

Google will earn more advertising revenue in the UK this year than Channel 4. Who's chief executive warned the TV industry that they had underestimated the threat from the internet. Andy Duncan said some traditional broadcasters had been slow to recognise the challenge posed by the internet and multi-channel TV, which cut into the audience and ad revenues of terrestrial broadcasters.

'This, reinforces that significant structural change has been going on and will continue to go on,' Duncan said.

Some broadcasters have been very slow to realise this. The industry as a whole is frankly rather backward looking and is perhaps underestimating the scale of change that is going on and the pace of change. Duncan said Channel 4, which is publicly owned but funded by advertising, had had an “incredibly good year”, increasing its audience share by 10% and boosting its share of the ad market. This made the comparison to the search engine all the more striking, he said.

Global Warming and Profiting from Investing in Carbon Trading / Companies / Analysis & Strategy

By: Sarah_Jones

The Kyoto pact has spurred billions of euros in greenhouse trade between companies in Europe and through a program that allows rich countries to pick up credits for investing in clean projects in developing countries.

The first phase of the pact requires about 35 developed countries to cut emissions of 5% from 1990 levels by 2008 to 2012.
But carbon dioxide-belching oil refineries and power plants, beyond some in Europe, mostly have yet to join in. That's mainly because President George W Bush withdrew US – the top polluter – from the international agreement, and as rapidly developing countries like China, India and Brazil oppose emissions limits because they have only recently industrialised.

But this is likely to change as the economic impact of global warming starts hitting and the carbon trading market could be transformed from a $10 billion a year market to a $1 trillion market. Read full article... Read full article...

Novolipetsk and Severstal, two Russian steel companies, and CSN, a Brazilian steel maker, are thought by some steel industry observers to be interested in making a counter bid.

Hedge Fund loses billions betting on Natural Gas Futures / Companies / Natural Gas

By: Shahla_Walayat

The financial media is buzzing about the reports of "enormous losses" suffered by Amaranth Advisors, a Connecticut hedge fund that reported it had lost in excess of $4 billion in the collapse of natural gas prices during 2006.

Specifically, the fund claims that its losses were due to bets that the spread between the March and April 2007 natural gas contracts would widen. That spread, in fact, did not widen but instead grew tighter as natural gas prices fell. While the fund allegedly lost money on a number of natural gas–related bets, The New York Times is reporting that the spread bet was the most costly.
