    Pakistan drug firm to import potential COVID-19 treatment from Bangladesh

    A pharmaceutical company in Pakistan plans to import the antiviral drug remdesivir, which has shown promise in treating coronavirus patients, from neighbouring Bangladesh, it said in a stock exchange filing on Friday. The announcement by Searle Company Limited came a day after 56 virus deaths recorded by the south Asian nation, its highest toll in a single day. The firm said it had entered into an exclusive licensing and marketing agreement with Bangladesh's Beximco Pharmaceuticals , the first company in the world to introduce the generic variant of the drug.

    EU's Vestager denies making Lufthansa bailout more difficult

    EU antitrust chief Margrethe Vestager denied on Friday that she was putting hurdles in the way of Lufthansa's $10 billion government rescue, saying companies getting big capital injections from the state have to offset their competitive advantage. Vestager wants Lufthansa to permanently give up some take-off and landing slots at Frankfurt and Munich airports, where it commands a two-thirds market share, in return for giving the green light to the German government taking a 20% stake in the airline. Lufthansa's board, however, has rejected her demands.

    Wall Street Weekahead: Investors eye consumer discretionary stocks as U.S. reopens

    Investors are taking a closer look at the market's consumer discretionary companies as a reopening U.S. economy fuels hopes of a turnaround for some of the sector's hardest-hit names. Many companies in the sector have been battered by the country-wide coronavirus-fueled lockdowns that have weighed on growth and damaged retail spending over the last several months, though the stocks of a few, like Amazon, have soared. A gradual lifting of lockdowns in some states has stirred hopes for a bounce back for the retailers that make up much of the sector.

    Renault to slash about 15,000 jobs in €2bn cost-cutting plan

    Renault plans to cut about 15,000 jobs, shrink production and restructure some of its French factories as the carmaker seeks to slash €2bn in costs amid falling demand and the aftermath of the 2018 arrest of Carlos Ghosn. After recording its first loss in a decade last year and with sales slumping, Renault is trying to achieve more than €2bn in savings over the next three years while cutting global production capacity from 4m vehicles in 2019 to 3.3m by 2024. “The slowdown of the automotive market combined with ever stricter regulations over the past three years partly contributed to our performance decline, and the Covid crisis has only aggravated an already existing situation and led us to take tough decisions,” said Renault’s interim chief executive Clotilde Delbos.

    Focus: Pandemic saps union clout as talks loom with Chile copper miners

    Chile's powerful copper unions are headed into contract talks with a hand weakened by the coronavirus pandemic, giving an edge to miners like Codelco, Glencore and Antofagasta in negotiations that could influence wages and benefits for years. Chile's generally well-paid copper mine workers argue they should be adequately compensated for working in a riskier environment to keep pits open during the pandemic. Union leaders said it would be harder to achieve wage hikes, bonuses and benefit boosts now that the pandemic has swept through the global copper market and hit profits for miners in Chile, the world's top producer.

    Iron Ore Powers Past $100 as Supply Woes Meet Robust Demand

    (Bloomberg) -- Iron ore surged past $100 a ton as supply woes in Brazil coincide with sustained, robust demand in top steel producer China.Benchmark spot prices climbed to $101.05 on Friday as Brazil, the world’s second-largest exporter, saw a surge in coronavirus infections, stoking worries that the pandemic may curb local supply. In April, miner Vale SA cut its annual shipment guidance on bad weather and the virus’s impact on operations. Meanwhile, port stockpiles of iron ore in China have continued to decline.The industrial staple has prospered in 2020 even as the coronavirus pandemic hammered industrial activity in many economies, although Bloomberg Intelligence has been among observers warning that market may flip to a surplus in the second half. In addition to Vale, the higher prices will bolster returns at BHP Group, Rio Tinto Group and Fortescue Metals Group Ltd.The early resumption of industrial operations in China has fueled a recovery in downstream activity and steel mills continue to increase output, China International Capital Corp. analysts including Ma Kai wrote in a note. “Iron ore will fundamentally maintain a tight balance this year,” with supply gradually recovering from the third quarter, they said.Benchmark spot prices are at the highest since August. Futures in Singapore were at $97, heading for their biggest ever monthly gain. On the Dalian Commodity Exchange, futures have rallied 23% in May.Credit Suisse Group AG recently estimated that the market is now at “peak tightness,” a condition that will probably persist until July. Bloomberg Intelligence expects a 34-million-ton surplus in the second half on higher supply and stagnating demand, flipping from a 25-million-ton deficit in the first half. That’s throwing a spotlight on whether the price gains are sustainable.“There remain doubts” as to the strength of the rally over the next one to three months, said Hui Heng Tan, analyst at Marex Spectron Group. A pickup in supply in Australia and Brazil is expected to gather pace, although disruptions in the South American country will be a factor to watch in the second half, he said. That increase in volumes could potentially coincide with when China exits its peak construction period with elevated steel stockpiles, he said.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

    Decoding the Stock Market: The Vocabulary of Volatility

    When the stock market is making large up and down moves on a regular basis, you may hear that we're in a "volatile" market, but what does that mean? While the word volatility is often used to describe general stock market action, or big movements in a certain stock, there's quite a bit more to the concept of volatility than that. A more specific definition of the word volatility when it comes to the stock market is how large the price movements of a stock or index have been (or are expected to be).
