Gas prices in North Korea jump on rumors of possible embargo

first_imgNewsEconomy News A pressurization system linked to the North Korea-bound oil pipeline located in the Chinese border city of Dandong, Liaoning Province. Image: Daily NK. North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) News US dollar and Chinese reminbi plummet against North Korean won once again At the beginning of this month, gasoline prices in North Korea’s capital city of Pyongyang began to sharply rise. Now, oil prices in other regions of the country have started climbing as well. This news was ascertained and delivered to Daily NK on September 7 by inside informants on the ground in North Korea.After the UN Security Council adopted another round of international sanctions against North Korea (Resolution 2371) on August 5, there were no major price fluctuations. However, oil prices did start to rise in certain regions after the North conducted its sixth nuclear test earlier this month.  According to the inside sources, one kilogram of gasoline rose from KPW 18,000 in Pyongyang at the beginning of September to KPW 23,000 on September 7th. Diesel prices also exceeded the KPW 12,000 mark.  Up until the fourth week of August, diesel was selling for KPW 12,800 per kilogram in Pyongyang. The cost of diesel actually fell in August. At the beginning of the month, it sold for about KPW 15,100.  But then it started to climb again towards the end of the month, jumping to KPW 14,100 at the end of the month, and then surpassing KPW 20,000 within a week after that.  Asked about these quickly elevating prices during a phone conversation with Daily NK  a source in Pyongyang said, “Gasoline prices started to rise at the end of August to KPW 18,000, and then jumped up to KPW 20,000 at the beginning of September. As a result of this increase, motorbikes disappeared from the streets of Pyongyang. The presence of taxis and cars is down by at least half. The streets are totally empty.” AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article? Contact us at [email protected] Gas prices in North Korea jump on rumors of possible embargo Facebook Twittercenter_img A newly constructed gasoline station near North Hamgyong Province’s Sunam Market (in Chongjin). Image: Daily NK Rumors of a potential oil embargoThere are a few reasons that might explain the increase. First, it is possible that the authorities are controlling the supply. The ongoing debate in the UN Security Council includes the possibility of levying an oil embargo, and it is therefore possible that the regime is aiming to increase its stock of reserves by restricting the supply to ordinary residents. There would be a precedent for this. In the past, during construction of state facilities and preparations for large-scale events, the regime has instituted unofficial measures that restrict the supply of oil. Normally, this means curtailing the flow of gasoline to regional state-operated gas stations that sell gas to ordinary residents. Other times, it involves Ministry of People’s Security officers (the police)enforcing controls on privately-run (non-state) gas stations.  However, there is no direct evidence yet available indicating that the authorities have instituted such a measure to reduce supply to private or public gas stations. Instead, it appears as it market forces responded to the rumor that the next UNSC Resolution (i.e., 2375) would include a limit on imports of oil into the country. An increasing proportion of oil merchants are acting on their own volition, it appears, to restrict supply.“As the rumor about a possible suspension of oil imports swirls around, the gasoline merchants have drastically reduced supply,” said the Ryanggang Province source. “This appears to be a natural market reaction rather than a measure enforced by the authorities.”  Another factor could also be at play. Ever since the recent nuclear test, smuggling routes between North Korea and China have become paralyzed. Less oil availability from these unofficial sources could also have the effect of driving prices up.  The sources say that the amount of oil smuggled into the country to date has been significant. This amount is in addition to the oil that comes from pipelines originating in China and Russia and brought into North Korean ports via ships. This smuggled oil gets carried into North Korea from China on freight trains and through other methods. Ever since the adoption of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2371, crackdowns and controls over Sino-Korean smuggling have strengthened. The oil that had been transported through these smuggling routes into North Korea has thus been affected, and it appears that this sharply cut the supply of oil into the country. Using sources with knowledge of the matter in China, Daily NK recently reported on this trend of Chinese authorities increasingly targeting smugglers in the border area. Some have raised the concern that increasing oil prices will most likely affect the price of essential items like rice and corn. There are no signs of a large scale knock-on effect at the moment, but corn prices have started to rise in certain regions, such as Hyesan.  Proposal to shift “general markets” to “specialized markets” finds little support among N. Korean leaders SHARE RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR “Some autobike drivers are concerned because the gas price jump will make it harder for them to make a living transporting people and goods,” the source added. “The possibility is large that related industries will also be hurt by the price increase.” There are signs that the gasoline price increase is also affecting areas far from the capital city, such as Hyesan City, Ryanggang Province. A source from that region said, “The cost of gasoline in Hyesan increased to KPW 21,600 per kilogram.” As recently as the third week of August, the price was at a mere KPW 12,050. Towards the end of the month, it climbed to KPW 14,400, and then kept climbing in September.  The source added, “Gas prices are also rising in rural areas of the country. Some areas feature gas prices approaching the price in Hyesan, and others have surpassed that. Merchants are baffled because the price dipped and then rose suddenly.”  By Daily NK – 2017.09.15 11:34am News last_img read more

Manager Monitor: Erin Greenfield, Trimark Investments

first_img Change to Counsel Global Small Cap Fund Erin Greenfield, who took over the lead role in managing Trimark Global Balanced in mid-2013, has stayed the course with the $611-million fund by keeping the asset mix stable and portfolio turnover low.Greenfield is a vice-president and portfolio manager for Trimark Investments, a division of Invesco Canada Ltd. in Toronto. After co-managing Trimark Global Balanced since 2009, he was appointed lead manager in June 2013, and continues to work with co-manager Jeff Hyrich. Since 2008, Greenfield has also co-managed Trimark Global Endeavour with Hyrich. NEO, Invesco launch four index PTFs Keywords Fund managersCompanies Invesco Canada Ltd. Though Greenfield and Hyrich have the flexibility to vary the asset mix, the balanced fund has remained at approximately 70% equities and 30% bonds over the past five years. On the equity side of this fund, which ranges between 25 and 35 holdings, the duo has added a few more names since mid-2013. Otherwise, there have been no significant changes over the past 14 months.This is despite being given a free hand. “With a lot of the Trimark funds, there’s not many handcuffs,” says Greenfield, who joined the Trimark team in 2005 and started out in Canadian equities. “And any time you remove handcuffs from portfolio managers, you increase the chances of outperforming.”Greenfield is responsible for the overall asset allocation of Trimark Global Balanced, but the bond components are chosen by a three-member fixed-income team. “We’ve told the bond managers to be opportunists,” says Greenfield. “Use that Trimark approach of trying to find great bargains.”There is considerable overlap in stock positions between Trimark Global Balanced and Trimark Global Endeavour, but the latter does not hold any fixed-income securities.Another difference has to do with the market capitalizations of equity holdings. Trimark Global Endeavour is primarily a mid-cap fund. Trimark Global Balanced is approximately one-third large cap, one-third mid-cap and one-third small-cap.Many of the “best ideas” of the two managers have come from smaller companies. “Often smaller companies can grow faster than larger companies,” says Greenfield, “but they can certainly be more volatile.”Following a fundamentally driven, bottom-up process, the Trimark team emphasizes quality management with a strong track record. Other sought-after qualities include profitability, competitive advantage, barriers to entry, growth opportunities, balance-sheet strength and valuations.Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq:MSFT), the current top holding in Trimark Global Balanced, “ticks many of the boxes,” says Greenfield. The information-technology giant has at times been unloved in the market, he says, “so it shows that we can be somewhat contrarian. It’s not a fast grower, but it does have some opportunities for growth in mobile and cloud platforms.”A top-five holding in the balanced fund and in Trimark Global Endeavour is Hyundai Mobis Co. Ltd., a South Korean auto-parts provider. The company has had very strong growth over the last 10 years, supplying parts to Hyundai Motor Co. and Kia Motor Corp., which make vehicles that are “really gaining in popularity,” says Greenfield. Hyundai Mobis sells globally and also handles most of the aftermarket parts. “So it’s somewhat of a royalty business for people getting their cars fixed, regardless of what’s going on in the economy.Greenfield and his Trimark colleagues don’t pay much attention to market indexes or sectors, but they aim to have a fairly diversified portfolio of separate ideas. For example, even if they consider U.S. banks to be cheap, the fund would generally include only one U.S. bank. “That way you have a portfolio of uncorrelated ideas,” says Greenfield.Currently, Trimark Global Balanced has invested close to 40% of its portfolio in the U.S., spanning both equities and fixed-income securities. The fund’s equity portion does not hold any Canadian companies. Most of the U.S. equity holdings are in companies that are global in scope.There are certain areas of the world that “we would shy away from,” says Greenfield. For example, “Russia is a place that I’ve always had a tough time with, and China I find is tough to understand at times.”When investing in China, Greenfield says he favours companies that are managed out of Hong Kong. The reason, he says, is that these companies have “a much longer history there of investor protection, better governance and more regulatory filings in English that you can review.”Greenfield, 41, received a BBA (honours) from Wilfrid Laurier University in 1996. After graduation, he joined NCR, owned by AT&T, as a cost accountant in Waterloo for about a year. He then returned to Wilfrid Laurier to take courses toward the CA designation.In September 1997, Greenfield joined KPMG in Toronto, auditing financial statements, before being transferred to the company’s Bermuda office in 1999 as a senior manager. He received the CA designation in 2001 and the CFA designation in 2002. He believes his experience in auditing a broad range of companies “is a great background to have as a portfolio manager.” Diana Cawfield center_img Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Franklin Templeton renames funds with new managers Related news Facebook LinkedIn Twitterlast_img read more

CU Boulder to host first symposium on feminist labs

first_imgThe Blow Things Up (BTU) Lab, in the Roser ATLAS Center is one of the labs participating in the symposium. As research labs have proliferated in recent years, it has increasingly become necessary to examine them through a feminist lens. Feminist approaches to the cultures within research labs are gaining traction as an important form of interdisciplinary scholarship. Cue the “What Is a Feminist Lab?” Symposium, taking place at the University of Colorado Boulder this month. This is the first event of its kind to be held at the university and is likely to serve as a model for other symposia that consider the intersection of feminism and labs.The symposium will bring together lab leaders and collaborators from across the U.S. and Canada with representatives from many of the university’s interdisciplinary labs to address best practices for restructuring equitable and inclusive research spaces. The event organizers are Associate Professor and Director of the Media Archaeology Lab (MAL) Lori Emerson, Ph.D. candidate and Curator of the MAL, Maya Livio, and Professor and Director of Digital Scholarship for the Center for Research Data & Digital Scholarship (CRDDS), Thea Lindquist. Emerson, Livio, and Lindquist said the symposium is about re-thinking what feminist thought in-practice can look like and how they can be further implemented across the campus community and beyond.“The symposium is a great opportunity for people to engage with thinking through what a feminist lab is, and why feminist labs are important, as well as to get to know several labs here in Boulder— a nice interplay between theory and practice over the one-and-a-half days of the event,” said the organizers.Feminist practice draws attention to the ways in which researchers acknowledge the range of labor that takes place in a lab in a way that is non-hierarchical and that does not privilege some forms of labor over others. It also seeks to address the equity of social needs that impact the quality of work such as personal health, childcare, and wellbeing. “There is such a long lineage of labs, going back at least to the 16th century, which is entirely bound up with enlightenment notions of reason and rationality, which are in turn bound up with patriarchal structures, that it’s difficult to know where to begin with transforming a lab into one that’s feminist,” said Emerson. Livio said that time and resources are among the challenges labs face when restructuring practices to be more feminist oriented. “Feminism takes time,” she said. “It involves slowing down and addressing what can sometimes feel bureaucratic and mundane in comparison to the other kinds of work a lab might do, such as generating research and producing new knowledge. However, I believe that making the effort will inevitably produce better research and knowledge.”Presentations will take place on Wednesday, April 17 from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Norlin Library, Room N410. Lab briefs and tours of campus labs such as the Blow Things Up (BTU) Lab, Media Archaeology Lab, and CRDDS will occur on Thursday, April 18 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., also starting in N410. Fifty seats will be available on a first come, first served basis. Lindquist said that the University Libraries promote openness, experimentation, and collaboration in partnering with researchers and learners both on and off campus.“This approach is probably best seen in the launch of the Center for Research Data and Digital Scholarship last year,” said Lindquist. “These values, I think, resonate for many feminist labs as well, so collaborating with Lori and Maya on this symposium was a natural outgrowth of this development.” For the most up-to-date schedule, go to Categories:CRDDSCMCITags:research Published: April 4, 2019 last_img read more
