@CriticalInvestor @DanO Your comment on these graphite plays is spot on too, there hardly is a natural graphite market, hardly any progress among most Canadian juniors, Flinders had to halt production because of low pricing/low demand, and what's left of it will go to the likes of Syrah $SYR.AX which is probably fully funded to production

@newstracker Storage tanks are expected to remain fairly full throughout the first six months of the year and only start emptying from June. OPEC and non-OPEC oil producers have agreed to reduce their ouput but the agreement contains a provision that it can be extended a further six months. Oil traders are betting on an extension. The current structure of futures prices implies it will no longer be necessary or financially viable to store such large volumes of crude from the third quarter onward. #oil #energy http://www.arabnews.com/node/1027811/business-economy

@newstracker Super Mario is Shigeru Miyamoto’s most famous creation and Nintendo's most iconic character. He is also the foundation of Nintendo’s fortunes; David Gibson, an analyst at Macquarie Securities, a broker, reckons that his antics account for a third of the company’s software sales over the past ten years. Games in which he features have sold over 500m copies. http://www.economist.com/news/christmas-specials/21712064-pudgy-italian-plumber-who-lives-america-was-conceived-japan-and-loved?

@newstracker Mark Lyttleton, who previously ran a £2bn fund for BlackRock's UK unit, was sentenced on Wednesday at Southwark Crown Court, London, after pleading guilty to two charges of fraud and Insider trading. Lyttleton, for whom trading became a “vocation” after winning a Daily Telegraph stockpicking competition aged just seven, made £45,000 profit after trading shares in EnCore, the Aim-listed North Sea explorer, days before its £221m takeover by Premier Oil was announced in 2011. https://www.ft.com/content/26fe4fd4-c793-11e6-9043-7e34c07b46ef

@newstracker A simple contrarian​ investing strategy has produced a 31% return so far in 2016, versus about 11% for the S&P 500 Index, according to the December 15 Global Equity Strategy report from Citigroup Inc. This has been the third-best year for that strategy since 1998. Its strong performance in 2016 was driven mainly by a rebound in commodities-driven stocks, including those in the mining, metals and oil sectors. http://www.investopedia.com/news/rich-profits-how-contrarian-investors-are-winning/#ixzz4TZEt5bKO #goagainstthegrain #contrarian

@newstracker "If a person becomes a portfolio manager at a pension fund and is tasked with investing in excess of $50 billion in fixed-income assets, that person has two choices: (1) direct funds to investors on the “approved“ list to do business with and not receive bribes in exchange or (2) funnel the money to whoever is going to say thank you in the form of, among other things, prostitutes, cocaine, and weekend getaways to Canada. Navnoor Kang allegedly chose option two, and that’s why he was arrested today." http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2016/12/navnoor-kang-gregg-schonhorn-deborah-kelley

@newstracker A Forbes report authored by a former McKinsey consultant says that the UK's GDP in 2016 was £1.87 trillion, which, given the 20 per cent decline in the value of the pound over the course of 2016, translated to $2.29 trillion. The report cites India’s 2016 GDP as being Rs. 153 trillion, which converts to $2.30 trillion at an exchange rate of Rs. 66.6 per dollar. According to Indian newspaper the Hindu, this claim is false after they conducted an analysis on data from the IMF, Government of India and currency data from the central bank. http://www.thehindu.com/business/Economy/Reality-check-Indian-economy-is-not-larger-than-that-of-the-UK/article16925514.ece? #India

@newstracker From 2009 to 2015, credit in China grew very rapidly by 20 percent on average per year, more than growth in nominal GDP. The ratio of non-financial private credit to GDP rose from around 150 percent to more than 200 percent, or about 20-25 percentage points higher than the historical trend. These credit patterns are comparable to countries that experienced painful deleveraging, such as Spain, Thailand, and Japan. This could be a drag on growth for the economic engine of the world. #China https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2016/12/heres-why-china-needs-to-tackle-its-corporate-debt-problem?
