London’s ETF market generated turnover of £185.4bn last year, up from £3.9bn in 2004, according to figures from the London Stock Exchange. “The growth of ETFs over the last 15 years has been extraordinary, radically transforming investment strategy and placing increased focus on passive management,” boss of the FTSE Group Mark Makepeace said. The first ETF to trade in London – the iShares Core FTSE 100 Ucits ETF – was launched by Barclays on 27 April 2000. There are now 791 ETFs listed on the London Stock Exchange, which is the largest trading platform in Europe with 33.4 per cent of market share. Barclays’ fund management arm, Barclays Global Investors, created the ETF by drawing on the growth of similar products in the US. It launched about 40 ETFs in 2000 under the iShares brand, which was later sold to US manager BlackRock. “ETFs are one of the success stories of 21st century investing in Europe,” said BlackRock’s head of Europe, Middle East and Africa iShares Rachel Lord. ETFs, which are baskets of stocks and bonds traded on a market like a share, have soared in popularity in recent years with 2014 seeing inflows of €77bn (£55bn) ­– triple the amount in 2013. EXCHANGE TRADED FUNDS■ European ETF assets now total £330bn and have grown 10 times since 2005.■ There were £24bn worth of trades on the London Stock Exchange last month.■ Just 7.8 per cent of ETFs listed in London track FTSE indices.■ The first ETF in Europe listed on the Deutsche Boerse on 11 April 2000.■ The first equity ETF to list in London is now the biggest – it is worth £3.7bn. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailzenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekPost FunKate & Meghan Are Very Different Mothers, These Photos Prove ItPost FunInvestment GuruRemember Cote De Pablo?

Comment / Analysis: the ‘Black Horses’ that may find riding out a sluggish freight market difficult

first_img By Alessandro Pasetti 06/01/2016 © Georges Kyrillos | Dreamstime.com A few technical analysts predict more pain ahead for transport, but here at The Loadstar we abide by fundamentals, so it’s quite easy for us to argue that not all the companies we monitor daily are in the same boat.Our team has selected four black horses that could find it difficult to ride out of this sluggish freight market, but certainly can deliver plenty of shareholder value in 2016, for different reasons.The four are CH Robinson, Kerry Logistics, Echo and Expeditors.Best of breed Just like many of its rivals, US 3PL CH Robinson didn’t have a great run in 2015, and shareholders suffered in spite of heavier stock buybacks, which rose 25% to $159m in the nine months ended 30 September. Share repurchases make sense at times and came on the back of rising operating cash flow, which was boosted by working capital and higher net profits, but they did little to lift confidence among investors.Its shares lost 16% of value in 2015, and challenging trading conditions now mean that the CH Robinson must seriously fight smaller competitors – such as loss-making XPO Logistics – that are pulling all the stops to grow and gain market share in a flash. The stock of XPO Logistics has almost halved in value in recent months, and CH Robinson should make sure that the pressure builds up on its rival.When reporting quarterly results in late 2015, CEO John Wiehoff said the firm was able “to continue to take market share in the third quarter while maintaining discipline and focus on our customer service and efficiency initiatives.”That was good news. Demand is soft in the US, and organic growth could have become more difficult to achieve – both elements indicate that an acquisition could be just around the corner, but only if the opportunity is right. Operationally, its strategy is paying dividends, and that shows in the performance of its growing core truckload business, which was responsible for almost $1bn of revenue in the in the nine months ended 30 September (almost 60% of group revenue, up 9.6% year on year).CH Robinson has been overly cautious with regard to its capital allocation strategy; it drew some criticism from our team in early 2015, but it has all it takes to bounce back, and its latest quarterly results show that revenue is under pressure but earnings are holding up relatively well. On top of that, the board is managing expectations; it could be more aggressive with regard to capital deployment, “but benchmark returns already set the standard in the industry”, one of its banking advisors reminded me today.“In this market, its corporate strategy makes a lot sense, when you consider what investors want,” he added.Well, its quarterly dividend recently rose, and CH Robinson is now offering investors a forward yield in the region of 2.5%, which is above average and indicates that its shares could have room to appreciate further from its current levels. It’s a yield play rather than a growth story, and these elements – combined with a lowly beta of 0.4 – are pivotal when it comes to attracting investors, particularly if volatility in the stock market springs back.The Asia specialist An integrated logistics and freight forwarding businesses, Hong Kong-based Kerry Logistics is a rather different story, and one that needs growth as well as a higher free float, in my view, in order to reward shareholders. Its shares currently trade on paltry multiples based on projected earnings, cash flows and book values, but it couldn’t be otherwise given its focus on Asia and China.The business is properly financed, however, and its relative valuation also reflects end markets that aren’t exactly in great shape. Less than a year ago, Kerry made a move into regional express deliveries, securing a number of Chinese courier licences. The market is highly fragmented, and weak freight volumes are an obvious risk, but analysts are unfazed: over the medium term, they expect it to add about HK$1bn (US$130m) of revenue annually, a performance that would be consistent with its track record.Challenging market conditions notwithstanding, Kerry is not wasting time and is shoring up its management teams around the globe. Furthermore, it this week opened a new IT development centre in Penang “to harness internet technology in support of its rapidly growing international operations”. We’ll keep an eye on how things develop there.Finally, its forward yield is about half that of CH Robinson, but the market expects it to deliver higher growth rates, and that is what Kerry needs to attract new investors and volumes, hence liquidity, to its shares.OutliersExpeditors and Chicago-based Echo Logistics have enjoyed differing fortunes in recent times. The shares of the former, backed by strong fundamentals and record profits, were in positive territory in 2015, while those of the latter fell over 30% last year, with most of the losses in the second half.Not only has volatility had a big impact on the value of many freight forwarders since last fall, but investors also decided to ditch the shares of transport companies that had pursued very aggressive, acquisition-led strategies in order to gain market share. As such, Echo shareholders suffered.Given its size (market cap $650m), however, and its valuation (based on core cash flows), Echo stands out as one of the most appealing takeover targets in the industry. I think management has made a great effort so far, and is investing to grow the business while paying attention to returns and value. Its latest quarterly results were particularly good and pleased investors.If Echo continues to deliver – I have reason to believe it will – and its relative valuation based on cash flows doesn’t rise accordingly, then it would be a great time to have your name on the shareholder register.“I wouldn’t be surprised to see an opportunistic offer of at least $1bn for the enterprise” one senior rainmaker in London told me on Monday.Of course, Expeditors is a very different play in the logistics industry, and not only because it dwarfs Echo. Its different appeal shows in its recent stock performance as well as in its track record, which is truly impressive, although 2015 was a year of tumultuous executive changes, as we previously argued.Expeditors is one of the first companies I covered for The Loadstar back in November 2014. Since then, the all-in return associated to its shares has been barely acceptable, which is not exactly what shareholders should aim for after years of little joy, but the downward pressure in the second half of 2015 was felt all across the industry, and, in fairness, Expeditors is still changing a lot in terms of management.Its shares are stuck around the levels recorded in mid-2011, and “it takes a huge leap of faith to be upbeat about its prospects, given its recent performance on the market”, a cash trader told me yesterday.I do not share the feeling: Expeditors is set to record one of its best years on record, and were it not for volatile trading conditions – which, incidentally, are here to stay – it would have likely delivered stronger returns in the second half.That, at least, is our take, and is based on its solid fundamentals.last_img read more

News / Transpacific box trade will get a new market leader after Cosco’s OOCL buy

first_img The transpacific container shipping market is set for a fundamental change if Cosco completes its acquisition of OOCL, according to new research from Alphaliner.The combination of the state-owned Chinese giant – created by last year’s merger of China Shipping and Cosco – and Hong Kong-based OOCL would create the world’s third-largest carrier, with a combined fleet of 2.4m teu, based on Alphaliner records.The 666,140 teu currently operated by OOCL would be added to Cosco Shipping’s fleet of 1,752,800 teu, alongside a combined orderbook of 600,000 teu.While its global market share will jump up to 11.5%, overtaking CMA CGM’s 11.1%, in terms of capacity operated, the new entity would also become the largest carrier on the transpacific trade, in terms of teu volumes.Alphaliner estimates – from volume data recorded by the Journal of Commerce and its research arm, PIERS, from May and June this year – that Cosco’s current market share of 11.2% on the transpacific added to OOCL’s share of 6.9% will create a new market leader with an 18.1% share.According to JoC-PIERS, the combined liftings of the two carriers in May and June was around 450,000 teu, almost 100,000 teu more than CMA CGM, which has held a 14.3% market share since its acquisition of APL last year.And the merger of Japanese carriers NYL, MOL and K Line, creating the Ocean Network Express (ONE) container line, will push CMA CGM into third place, Alphaliner estimates.In May and June, the combined carryings of the prospective ONE partners amounted to just over 400,000 teu, giving the new firm a probable 16.5% transpacific market share.These new market shares are unlikely to trouble regulators, Alphaliner suggested.“Despite their significant combined transpacific market share, the merger of Cosco and OOCL is not expected to face any major objections from anti-trust regulators in the US, as the market remains highly competitive: No individual carrier will command more than 20% of overall market volumes,” it said.Some of this is largely academic, of course, as Cosco, OOCL and CMA CGM are all partners in the Ocean Alliance – along with Taiwanese carrier Evergreen – which is already the leading consortium on the trade.And this position is expected to be further cemented by plans to create the largest-capacity Asia-US east coast service through the Panama Canal. CMA CGM revealed that this summer its will phase its 14,400 teu CMA CGM T Roosevelt and CMA CGM J Adams newbuildings into the alliance’s AWE5/SAX/ECX1/AW5 service.They will replace two 11,300 teu vessels, Alphaliner says, giving the service “the distinction of being the first service in the trade that exclusively deploys tonnage of 13,000 teu or more”. While a 13,000 teu capacity had been considered the “maxi-neo-panamax” standard, CAM CGM’s design configurations mean absolute capacity has been increased.“The vessels have a length of 366 metres and a breadth of 48.2 metres (19 deck rows), which corresponds to the dimensions of standard maxi-neo-panamaxes rated at just over 13,000 teu. Their increased capacity is achieved thanks to a fuller hull shape, allowed by a lower speed, and by an optimised deck cargo configuration,” Alphaliner explained.

Hot rodder resurrects toasted Chevy as middle finger to California wildfire

first_img We encourage all readers to share their views on our articles using Facebook commenting Visit our FAQ page for more information. Trending Videos See More Videos Many vehicles were also lost in the fire, and with California being the mecca of hot rodding, we can gather that a lot of passionate people lost their projects.But not Steve Johnson of Santa Rosa. When Mother Nature tried to take his hot rod, he clenched it right back from her.According to Jonny Mill of WheelWell, Johnson’s ride is a 1956 Chevrolet 210, a classic hot rod done up in “gasser” style with a solid front axle and massive tires in the back. During the Tubbs fire, Johnson’s shop fell victim to the flames, as did his classic Chevelle, his Corvette, all his tools, his house, and even his Hot Wheels collection.The 210 was also caught in the blaze and almost didn’t make it, but Johnson thought ahead and put the vehicle in his driveway, hoping the fire wouldn’t be able to reach out and touch it. Johnson’s since took what was left of the gasser, and revived it.The panels are all burned to a crisp and no paint remains; the windshield is duct-taped in because the rubber seats all melted; and there’s nothing left in the interior but a shifter, a steering wheel and some pedals.To get the car going again, Johnson installed a new engine, new fuel lines and some new tires. That’s it. He even re-used the old supercharger. Without a doubt, the coolest part of the car is the melted turn signals, which became a puddle of orange goo on the bumper. Buy It!
