BP sets $1.5 billion charge for U.S tax changes but sees long-term boost

Tue, 01/02/2018 - 2:38pm

Oil giant BP (BP.L) will take a one-off $1.5 billion (1 billion pounds) charge to adjust to new U.S. tax rules, but expects a long-term boost from the corporate-friendly tax rates, it said on Tuesday. BP's rival Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) said last week it would incur a one-off charge of $2-$2.5 billion for the U.S. tax changes. Like BP, Shell and many other international companies said they expected a long-term positive impact to U.S. earnings from the massive $1.5 trillion tax overhaul that U.S. President Donald Trump signed into law last month.

Gold hits 3-month peak after late December rally

Tue, 01/02/2018 - 10:39am

Gold hit its highest since late September on Tuesday, extending a year-end rally that saw the metal rise 4.4 percent in the last three weeks of 2017, as a further retreat in the dollar drove prices above $1,310 an ounce. Palladium prices meanwhile bounced to a new 17-year high, within $5 of their all-time peak, as tightening emissions controls and a swing away from diesel cars in Europe fuelled fears of a shortage of the metal after years of market deficit. Spot gold was up 0.8 percent at $1,312.52 an ounce at 1505 GMT, while U.S. gold futures for February delivery were up $4.90 an ounce at $1,314.20.
