In what their owner considers an unlikely friendship, a chicken was filmed riding on the back of a horse on a farm in Cranbrook, Tasmania.Tracey Johnston filmed her Friesian thoroughbred-cross, named Reinah, calmly moving around a paddock with the chicken on its back.“I have never seen this happen before!” Johnston told Storyful. “If you knew the mood of Reinah you’d know this is an unusual event. If that horse didn’t want a chook on its back, there would not be a chook on its back!”Johnston told Storyful her pet beagle likely scared the chicken, forcing the bird to jump onto the safety of the horse’s back.“I could hear the chook making a ruckus and I walked outside and the chook was sitting on the horse” Johnston said.

A gauge of the greenback has climbed in the past two weeks.Yellen’s confirmation hearing as Treasury Secretary is scheduled for Jan. 19 in front of the Senate Finance Committee, the day before President-elect Joe Biden is sworn into office.Bullion has dropped almost 4% this year as U.S. Treasury yields and the dollar advanced. Still, the metal is staying above $1,800 an ounce and is expected to receive support from massive stimulus packages from central banks and governments.

In the last days of his administration, U.S. President Donald Trump took what may be his parting shot at China's Huawei. Reuters sources say Trump has pulled licenses from companies including Intel that let them sell to Huawei, another push to weaken a company the U.S. considers a threat to national security. The notices came amid a flurry of U.S. actions against Beijing just days before President-elect Joe Biden takes office on Wednesday. A source familiar with the decision said eight licenses were taken from four companies and that the Department of Commerce intends to reject dozens of applications for new ones. When asked, Commerce said it would not comment on specifics but did say their policies protect 'U.S. national security and foreign policy interests.' Huawei has been in Washington's crosshairs for years, saying the company's equipment could be used for state spying. Back in May 2019, The Trump administration attempted to restrict suppliers from selling U.S. goods and technology to Huawei, but some sales were still allowed- with a license. Restrictions have ratcheted up since, mostly targeting products that can make use of 5G technology. Huawei's chief finance officer, Meng Wanzhou, has also been detained in Canada since 2018 on a U.S. warrant. Wanzhou is accused of violating U.S. sanctions against Iran and conspiring to steal trade secrets from American technology companies.

As much of the world tightens lockdowns to stem coronavirus, Dubai has flung its doors open, branding itself as a sunny, quarantine-free escape -- despite a sharp rise in cases. While mask-wearing and social distancing are strictly enforced, life in the tourism-reliant emirate looks much like normal, with its restaurants, hotels and mega-malls open for business.Daily detected cases hover in the mid-3,000s across the United Arab Emirates, which has a population of under 10 million, with 745 deaths from Covid-19 since the pandemic began.
U.S. defense officials say they are worried about an insider attack or other threat from service members involved in securing President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, prompting the FBI to vet all of the 25,000 National Guard troops coming into Washington for the event. The massive undertaking reflects the extraordinary security concerns that have gripped Washington following the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by pro-Trump rioters. Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy told The Associated Press on Sunday that officials are conscious of the potential threat, and he warned commanders to be on the lookout for any problems within their ranks as the inauguration approaches.
It's a modern-day classic.
(Bloomberg) -- HDFC Bank Ltd., India’s largest private lender by assets, posted third-quarter profit that beat analyst expectations after earnings were buoyed by strong loan growth. Shares jumped.Net income was 87.6 billion rupees ($1.2 billion) in the three months through December compared with 74.2 billion rupees a year earlier, exchange filings on Saturday showed. That beat the average estimate of 76.4 billion rupees from 18 analysts, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.India’s most valuable bank by market capitalization is the first lender to report third-quarter results. While banks largely withstood the coronavirus pandemic’s economic fallout due to a revival in consumer spending, a six-month moratorium and a loan restructuring program has masked some of the soured debt.Shares in HDFC Bank surged as much as 2.3% in Mumbai on Monday to a record 1,500 rupees, while the S&P BSE Bankex Index fell.HDFC Bank’s 18% profit growth may be “among the strongest performance reported by the larger Indian banks in fiscal 3Q ended December,” said Diksha Gera, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence, adding that “peers Axis, ICICI and Yes Bank are likely to lag.”The gross bad loan ratio at the bank led by Chief Executive Officer Sashidhar Jagdishan narrowed to 0.8% at the end of December from 1.08% three months earlier. The ratio would have been 1.38% without the relaxation of rules regarding the recognition for bad debt, the bank said in the filing.To read about the boost to banks’ consumer loan bookHDFC Bank’s loan book grew by an annual 16% in the October to December period, outpacing the sector’s average growth of 6%. Last year, the bank was ordered to curb some digital and credit card operations following a series of technical glitches, a rare step by the financial regulator as online transactions surge in the nation.In 2020, “there were worries on unsecured loans, growth, management transition and tech-related issues during the later part of the year,” said Suresh Ganapathy, an analyst at Macquarie Capital Securities (India) Pvt. “Despite all the challenges, HDFC Bank has done well.”(Updates with analyst comments and share reaction.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- One of India’s top fund managers is turning bullish on higher-yielding rupee corporate bonds based on the view that the nation’s recovery will outpace the consensus estimate of economists.Maneesh Dangi, who oversees $25 billion of debt assets at Aditya Birla Sun Life AMC Ltd., expects India’s economy to expand by 13% in the fiscal year starting April, compared with a median forecast of 9% by economists surveyed by Bloomberg. Dangi bases his outlook in part on optimism about the jobless rate falling after lockdowns were eased as well as policy steps helping minimize insolvencies.Aditya Birla Sun Life Corporate Bond Fund is the third-best performer among India’s mutual funds focused on the company note category in the past year with an 11.4% return on its regular investment plan, according to data from the Association of Mutual Funds in India.“We will start dialing up AA risk,” said Dangi, 44, referring to corporate bonds with credit ratings in the AA category. “Quality AA rated papers where yields have not compressed to pre-Covid levels are offering attractive returns.”That approach must contend with numerous risks. While the government has said economic indicators suggest a broad-based recovery ahead, it forecasts the worst contraction since 1952 for the current fiscal year. Recent Covid-19 resurgence in countries that, like India, had success after strict earlier lockdowns is also a reminder of how unpredictable the crisis can be. And the nation is still home to one of the world’s largest outbreaks globally.Dangi said the “biggest risk” to his strategy would be any premature withdrawal of support measures to counter the pandemic, and he stressed that officials face a delicate task in communicating with debt markets.Last week brought a stark warning on that account. Yield premiums on rupee corporate bonds jumped after falling to record lows in 2020, following an announcement by the central bank that it would drain cash from the market in an effort to normalize liquidity operations.Dangi had been reducing holdings of all but the safest corporate bonds in recent years until of late. He had done so because of a credit crisis triggered by the failure of a large shadow bank in 2018 that stung local markets even before the pandemic.Read about RBI assuring bond investors over its easy monetary stanceNow, though, he is keen on buying debt from firms that are likely to get upgraded to AA in the near future. He has also shortlisted a few non-AAA rated borrowers from sectors including commodities, chemicals and automobile components, which could benefit from any sharp economic recovery.(Adds chart showing rising yields for corporate rupee notes)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
