Oil prices drop on possible Iran deal, dollar -  Permanent Portfolio(PRPFX) newsOil prices drop on possible Iran deal, dollar

File photo of an oil derrick is seen at a fracking site for extracting oil outside of WillistonBy Christopher Johnson LONDON (Reuters) - Oil prices fell on Monday as officials from Iran and six world powers discussed a possible deal over Tehran's nuclear program that could bring an end to sanctions and allow an increase in Iranian oil exports. "Regarding Iran, there are two possible outcomes: a framework deal or an extended deadline," Bjarne Schieldrop, chief commodities analyst at SEB Markets in Oslo, told the Reuters Global Oil Forum. Brent crude was down 47 cents at $55.94 a barrel by 0800 GMT as the market began to price in a deal with Iran. Barclays said a build in U.S. stocks would make its way into an oversupplied global market in the second quarter and that demand would unlikely be strong enough to support oil prices once that happened.

Exclusive: Fidelity moves to end DuPont proxy battle - sources -  Permanent Portfolio(PRPFX) newsExclusive: Fidelity moves to end DuPont proxy battle - sources

A pedestrian walks past a stock ticker at a Fidelity Investments office in BostonBy Nadia Damouni and Mike Stone NEW YORK (Reuters) - Fidelity Investments, a major investor in DuPont , has put pressure on activist fund Trian Fund Management LP and the chemical conglomerate to reach a settlement in what it sees as a detrimental proxy fight, according to people close to the matter. Fidelity, whose 2.5 percent stake makes it DuPont's sixth largest shareholder, has not publicly revealed what sort of compromise it was seeking. Yet its unusual intervention as peacemaker could influence other mutual fund investors in DuPont and pre-empt what could be this year's biggest battle over board representation. In a filing with the U.S. Security and Exchange Commission last Wednesday, Trian disclosed that on March 11 it received a call from one of DuPont's largest stockholders encouraging Trian and the company to resolve the proxy contest and avoid a costly and disruptive conflict.



Hong Kong retail rents drop as Chinese shoppers stop -  Permanent Portfolio(PRPFX) newsHong Kong retail rents drop as Chinese shoppers stop
A drop in Chinese tourist numbers is driving down shop rentals in Hong Kong, with vacancies increasing in the same prime areas that just three years ago pipped New York's Fifth Avenue to become the world's most expensive retail real estate. Spooked by months of cross-border tensions and pro-democracy protests, tour groups visiting Hong Kong from China plunged about 80 percent this month, dealing a blow to the retailers that had built their businesses around these mainland visitors' once insatiable demand. "If they don't cut the rent, I will leave," said the head of a consumer goods chain that also has a shop in Causeway Bay. Hong Kong retail sales in January fell to their lowest level since 2003, a factor property agents said prompted more retailers to negotiate lower leases, or just move out.

A Volvo logo is seen on a car at the Brussels International Auto ShowBy Laurence Frost PARIS (Reuters) - Volvo Cars will invest $500 million in its first U.S. assembly plant under plans announced on Monday, plugging a longstanding gap in the Swedish carmaker's manufacturing base as it pursues a global comeback under Chinese ownership. Volvo is in advanced talks with several U.S. states and will announce a location within weeks, Chief Executive Hakan Samuelsson said in embargoed comments made before the announcement. Following its sale to Zhejiang Geely [GEELY.UL] by Ford in 2010, Volvo has stepped up investment in new models and production, adding a pair of Chinese factories to its two older European plants. North American manufacturing is "the last piece in establishing our global footprint", Samuelsson told Reuters.
