    UPDATE 2-Europe closes in the red as Broadcom warning rocks chip sector

    Trade-sensitive technology stocks led losses in European markets on Friday after U.S. chipmaker Broadcom's sales warning and disappointing industrial data out of China came as the clearest signs yet of the damage trade war may do to global growth. The pan-European STOXX 600 index closed down 0.4%, with Frankfurt's DAX index, which lists Europe's largest chipmaker Infineon, falling 0.6%. Broadcom, one of the biggest U.S. players in the chip sector, blamed the $2 billion hit to its 2019 sales on trade tensions and the ban on doing business with Huawei Technologies.

    Trump strikes "supportive" tone in meeting with British business leaders -sources

    U.S. President Donald Trump struck a positive, conciliatory tone with top British and U.S. business leaders at a meeting in London on Tuesday, sources familiar with the talks told Reuters, despite tensions between the two countries over China's Huawei. In a breakfast gathering with 10 executives at St James' Palace, Trump mentioned the strong historical ties between the two countries and praised British investment in the U.S. healthcare sector in particular, the sources said. Trump had earlier promised Britain a substantial post-Brexit trade deal, during a state visit to Britain being cast as a chance to celebrate Britain's "special relationship" with the United States and boost trade links.

    Let's deepen economic ties, Britain's May tells Trump

    British Prime Minister Theresa May will call on U.S. President Donald Trump to deepen transatlantic economic cooperation on Tuesday, saying a bilateral trade deal could make their partnership "greater still". At a meeting with 10 British and U.S. businesses at St James' Palace, the Queen's official residence, May will tell companies such as defence contractor BAE Systems and pharmaceuticals giant GlaxoSmithKline that greater cooperation would boost the two countries' economic partnership. "It is a great partnership, but one I believe we can make greater still," she will say, according to advance extracts from her office.

    Britons set for £6 billion energy windfall from network curbs

    Britons could see a 6 billion pound cut in energy bills over five years from 2021, saving the average household 40 pounds per year, under plans to curb what gas and electricity network firms can pay shareholders. Regulator Ofgem, which introduced a price cap on standard energy bills in January after lawmakers said customers were being overcharged, is now targeting the operators whose network fees make up around a quarter of British household energy bills. Ofgem said it plans to cut the amount network firms pay their shareholders, known as the "cost of equity range" by almost 50% for the next regulatory period starting in 2021.

    Investors slap discount on UK utilities amid election worries

    British utility stocks are trading at a growing discount to euro zone peers as investors fear the country's deepening political crisis could trigger a general election that ushers in renationalisation of the industry, worth $76 billion (£59.9 billion). The opposition Labour Party has said it wants to nationalise energy and water infrastructure if it can oust Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives from power, reversing decades of pro-privatisation policies. Simon Webber, lead portfolio manager on the global and international equities team at Schroders said those fears were "another overhang" for utilities, already subject to a discount like other UK assets because of Brexit uncertainty.

    British gas network company Cadent pays record penalty for supply failures

    British gas network company Cadent has paid a record penalty of 44 million pounds for failing to properly supply gas to some customers, regulator Ofgem said on Wednesday. The penalty, which will see Cadent pay 24 million pounds for improvements and compensation and set up a 20 million pound community fund, comes a week after Britain's opposition Labour party set out plans to nationalise the sector if it comes into power. Cadent Gas generated an operating profit of 724 million pounds in 2018.

    UK business group condemns Labour nationalisation plans, Brexit delay

    Plans by Britain's opposition Labour Party to nationalise utilities including the country's electricity grid will damage investment as well as hurting many small shareholders, one of the country's main business groups warned on Tuesday. Last week, Labour published plans to renationalise the country's 60-billion-pound energy networks, taking companies such as National Grid, Scottish Power and SSE into public ownership. Utilities warned this would damage investment, and on Tuesday the Confederation of British Industry's president, John Allan, said he feared the impact would spread beyond the businesses directly affected.

    Factbox: What would a Labour Party government nationalise, and how?

    Britain's opposition Labour Party wants to nationalise energy and water infrastructure if it can oust Prime Minister Theresa May's ruling Conservatives from power, reversing decades of pro-privatisation public policy. Despite a national election not being due until 2022, the prospect of nationalisation is worrying investors. Analysts have valued the regulated asset values of water and energy networks potentially facing nationalisation at around 125 billion pounds.

    U.K.’s National Grid Creates More Jobs in America Than at Home

    National Grid Plc, the U.K. gas and power network operator borne from Margaret Thatcher’s privatization drive in the 1980s, offers the same services in the densely populated area spanning New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The U.S. now accounts for most of the London-based utility’s revenue and it gets the biggest share of investment. National Grid’s shifting center will come as cold comfort to a company that now has to deal with the threat of nationalization should Britain’s opposition Labour Party win the next U.K. general election.

    National Grid attacks Labour's renationalisation plan as profit dips

    Labour plans to take National Grid into public ownership

    In a radical plan, the Labour leader says low-income households would benefit from the changes, which could see millions lifted out of fuel poverty. Labour says the scheme could provide free energy and save an average of £117 a year on household bills. Any unused electricity generated by the programme would be used by the National Grid, which it is claimed would raise an additional £66m a year for local authorities.

    National Grid says nationalisation would delay green energy progress

    National Grid has said plans by Labour to renationalise UK energy networks would damage investment and delay progress towards greener energy. According to the Financial Times, a paper to be set out later this week will explain how a Jeremy Corbyn government would nationalise the networks - cables and pipelines that deliver gas and electricity - soon after winning an election. National Grid said in a statement that it was one of the most reliable networks in the world and also "at the heart of the decarbonisation agenda".

    UK energy network firms rattled by Labour state ownership plan

    Britain's opposition Labour Party intends to take energy networks back into state ownership if elected, prompting infrastructure owners to warn of damage to investment, high taxpayer costs and a slower transition to green energy. Labour's shadow business and energy secretary, Rebecca Long-Bailey, late on Tuesday published party plans via twitter to renationalise the country's 60-billion-pound energy networks and establish a National Energy Agency. Britain's energy infrastructure, such as gas pipes and electricity cables, is owned by several firms including SSE, National Grid and Iberdrola's Scottish Power.
