Norwegian sovereign fund returns 10.7% despite oil price crash

first_imgAt the end of the year, the equity portfolio accounted for 58.1% of assets, with 47.9% in Norwegian equity and a further 10% in stocks listed in Finland, Sweden and Denmark.Its largest single holding was Statoil, closely followed by banking group DNB and Telenor.Combined, the three companies accounted for one-third of the fund’s equity holdings, spread across 144 companies.Due to the fund’s sizeable shareholding in Statoil, Folketrygdfondet has previously called for the oil firm to improve its disclosure around shale gas.Svarva credited the 9.8% return on fixed income to falling interest rates, and cautioned that the returns would not be easily repeated.“We are concerned about what low and negative interest rates could mean for how capital is invested, and for the economic development over time,” she added, accepting that the challenging times ahead could also offer “opportunities”.The GPFN, funded with the historic surplus of national insurance contributions, has achieved an average return of 7.8% over the last decade.Read more about the GPFN, the smaller sibling of the NOK6.7trn Government Pension Fund Global One of Norway’s sovereign wealth funds achieved above-benchmark returns of nearly 11% last year, boosted by strong equity growth despite declining oil prices.The NOK185.7bn (€20.5bn) Government Pension Fund Norway (GPFN) noted that the Oslo Stock Exchange was down 5.5% over the end of the fourth quarter – with energy sector stocks falling in value by 25% – but nevertheless finished the year up by 5% due to the consumer and materials sectors.Olaug Svarva, managing director at Folketrygdfondet, which runs the GPFN, said the fund’s 2.1 percentage point benchmark outperformance was its best since 2008 but cautioned that a return of 10.7% – resulting in asset growth of nearly NOK18bn – was unlikely to be repeated.She added that the 10.6% return on the fund’s equity portfolio – 3.3 percentage points above benchmark – was largely down to the listed firms benefiting from low interest rates and the weakening kroner.last_img read more

September Fest checkers fly for Grabouski, Saathoff

first_imgBEATRICE, Neb. (Sept. 26-27) – Two IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified drivers more than a little familiar with victory lane at Beatrice Speedway found their way there again during September Fest.Jordan Grabouski was the Friday night winner and Johnny Saathoff led the way to the Saturday checkers. Each Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifying win was good for $1,500.Grabouski had won both the Spring Nationals main event and his career 100th IMCA feature at Beatrice earlier this season; Saathoff’s numerous accolades at that venue now include his career eighth victory in the traditional season-ending special. After starting fourth on opening night, Grabouski passed Cory Wray for the lead on the third of 25 laps. The final caution came near midway and he stayed on the top groove until catching lapped traffic with seven to go. Dylan Smith, Hunter Marriott, Saathoff and Chris Abelson completed the top five.Saathoff drew the sixth starting spot on Saturday and needed 22 laps to find his way to the front, sneaking inside leader Lyle Shepard in the first set of turns and getting the win by three car lengths.Shepard, Smith and Anthony Roth were next across the stripe and Abelson repeated his fifth place showing from Friday. Kyle Vanover paced both IMCA Sunoco Stock Car features while Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod winners were Greg Metz on Friday and Tyler Frye on Satur­day. All four of those events paid $500 to win.Brendon Stigge swept the $300 to win IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock mains. Ramsey Meyer scored the $200 Saturday Mach-1 Sport Compact victory. Vanover started fifth, took the lead on lap three and led the rest of the way in a 20-lapper on Fri­day that ran green the last 19 circuits. He built up a big lead running the bottom groove and won ahead of Shane Stutzman and Lance Borgman. From the ninth starting spot, Vanover was up to third before the halfway mark on Saturday and wound up with the checkers in a photo finish over Brad Derry to complete his second sweep in as many weekends. Completing the top three was Chad Borgman.The extreme high line took Metz from sixth starting to the front in Friday’s SportMod main. Lance Borgman took the lead away following a restart at midway but Metz returned the favor following a caution with three laps left. Borgman was second and Kyle Prauner ran third.Saturday’s SportMod feature played out much the same way: Frye started sixth and was also in front when the fifth lap was scored. The final caution came with three laps to go.Frye pulled away following the restart, with Borgman and Prauner repeating their 2-3 finishes.The opening night Hobby Stock feature ran green to checkered with Stigge in front for the last 12 of 15 circuits. Russ Specht was a close second after Stigge was slowed by a lapped car. Adam Armstrong was third. Stigge led every lap on Saturday but his margin of victory was just half a car length over Arm­strong. They’d gone side-by-side for most of three laps following a late restart. Next across the stripe was Tejay Mielke. Meyer won for the third time in as many outings this season at Beatrice, charging from 10th to the lead just after halfway in the 12-lapper for Sport Compacts. Matt Moyer was second and Codie Mielke was third. Meyer counted wins at eight different tracks in three states in 2014. Sept. 26 Feature Results Modifieds – 1. Jordan Grabouski; 2. Dylan Smith; 3.

Lionel Messi is the Face of Soccer: Antoine Griezmann

first_imgBarcelona: Barcelona’s last signing Antoine Griezmann has said that his new teammate Lionel Messi is the best soccer player in the world and the face of the sport.“For me, he (Messi) is the number one, like Lebron (James) in basketball. They’re the ideal,” the French international forward told Barcelona media on Tuesday, reports Efe news.“Lebron is the face of the NBA, and for me, Messi is the face of soccer because he has something different that others don’t have. We can only see (such talent) every 30 years or so,” Griezmann added.Griezmann, the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner with France, also praised the La Liga champion side, saying that “all teams are different from Barcelona at the level of playing style.”He spoke directly to the club’s fan base as well, reiterating that he intends to entertain the crowd on and off the Camp Nou pitch. “I want to play in front of my new fans,” Griezmann said.“I believe that they already know me, I’m someone who gives everything on the field and I’m sure we’ll enjoy together.”Barcelona announced last Friday the signing of the 28-year-old on a five-year deal. The announcement came after the player’s international representatives paid his $134.6 million buyout clause included in his contract with Atletico Madrid at the La Liga offices. Atletico said the fee Barcelona had paid at the La Liga headquarters was not enough to cover the total amount of the buyout clause given the deal was struck before it was reduced.

Japanese star Shohei Ohtani chooses Angels over 6 other MLB teams, including Dodgers

first_img Does Shohei Ohtani move help the Angels keep Mike Trout long term? Japanese media brace for Shohei Ohtani arrival with Angels after experiencing Ichiro madness A right-hander who throws 102 mph and hits tape-measure homers, Ohtani, 23, is expected to try to do both in the majors, which would be an historic achievement. Dodgers’ bid for Shohei Ohtani falls short Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Miller: Shohei Ohtani brings a bat, an arm and much more to suddenly blessed Angels Eppler, speaking to the Angels’ flagship radio station (KLAA), said he felt Ohtani was swayed by their face-to-face meeting on Monday night in Los Angeles.“I think he felt some comfort with the organization,” Eppler said. “He felt comfort with Arte Moreno and the things Arte said to him and the things (club president) John Carpino said to him. He felt there was a family-like atmosphere here and something he was wanting to and willing to be a part of for a lot of years to come.”Ohtani was so coveted because he has the talent to be a top-of-the-rotation starter, as well as the potential to be a major league power hitter. The Angels are expected to use him primarily as a starting pitcher. He could be the designated hitter a few times a week, with Albert Pujols shifting back to first base. PreviousDuring parts of five seasons in Japan, two-way star Shohei Ohtani’s best season at the plate was 2016, when he batted .322 with 18 doubles, 22 home runs, 67 RBI and 65 runs scored in 104 games. In 382 plate appearances, he had a .416 on-base percentage and a 1.004 OPS.

(Photo by Getty Images)ExpandThe Angels, who already boasted the best player in the majors, are about to add the player called “the Babe Ruth of Japan.”Shohei Ohtani, who drew comparisons to one of the most iconic major leaguers in history because of his ability to pitch and hit, surprised the baseball world on Friday morning by deciding to sign with the Angels.AdChoices广告Ads by TeadsIn the months leading up to being posted by his Japanese team, Ohtani was widely expected to sign with a high-profile team such as the New York Yankees or Dodgers or a team with a rich history of Japanese players such as the Seattle Mariners.Related Articles Eppler said the plan of how to incorporate both roles will evolve according to his preferences and needs, with the medical staff keeping a close eye on him to prevent overwork.“He’s going to really be an active participant in this plan,” Eppler said of Ohtani. “At this moment in time, we’re just thankful to be able to make this union and go forward and watch him make an impact in spring training and see where it goes from there.”The cost to get Ohtani was minimal, with the Angels limited to paying him a $2.315 million bonus by international signing restrictions. After using most of their allotment for international players, the Angels had to make two trades in the past 10 days to acquire another $2.21 million worth of spending space.The Angels will also have to pay Ohtani’s Japanese team, the Nippon Ham Fighters, a $20 million posting fee, which does not count as part of their payroll for purposes of the luxury tax.Ohtani now joins the Angels on a minor league deal, just like any other foreign prospect. He will be paid the major league minimum, $545,000, in 2018. He won’t be eligible for arbitration until after at least three seasons. He won’t be eligible for free agency until after at least six.Having Ohtani changes the complexion of an Angels team that has not made the playoffs since 2014 and has not won a playoff series since 2009.“Anytime you can add a bat and an arm like his automatically makes us a better club,” starting pitcher Garrett Richards said via text. “I was already optimistic about our club in 2018 and this makes us even more of a threat.”Ohtani’s most immediate impact is likely to be on an Angels rotation that had been ravaged by injuries in recent years. Richards is the only pitcher who profiles as a true No. 1 starter. He has been hurt for most of the past two seasons, although he is healthy now.Ohtani had a 2.52 ERA with 624 strikeouts in 543 innings in Japan. He did walk 200 batters, though.“Time will tell, but he has the talent to pitch at the front end of a championship-caliber rotation,” Eppler said last week.One issue could be his durability. In Japan, starters pitch every seven days, as opposed to every five in the majors. Also, he missed much of last season because of an ankle injury, pitching just 25-1/3 innings in 2017.It has been suggested that going to a six-man rotation might be the best way for a major league team to fold Ohtani into its pitching staff.While his talent as a pitcher is unquestioned, there is more skepticism about how it will work with him hitting in the majors.A left-handed hitter, Ohtani hit .286 with an .859 OPS and 48 homers in 1,170 plate appearances in Japan. In 2017, he hit .332 with eight homers in 231 plate appearances.In Japan, Ohtani did not hit on the days he pitched or on the days immediately before and after. He also has been limited to designated hitter for the last three seasons, after playing 62 games in the outfield in his first two seasons in Japan. The Angels, with an outfield of Justin Upton, Kole Calhoun and Trout, aren’t likely to try Ohtani in the outfield.If Pujols has truly improved his health and conditioning – the result of his first winter without surgery since 2014-15 – he could play more games at first base, clearing the way for Ohtani to be the DH.“I think we’ll just see how Albert feels when he gets into spring training,” Eppler said. “I’ve had positive feedback from our guys that have been around him. I think Albert is embracing a winter where he can get more into an accustomed offseason routine for him. I do know that Albert likes playing first base. … We’ll keep an open mind and see how much he can handle over there.” The Angels now could have two mold-breaking players, in Ohtani and superstar Mike Trout.“We are honored Shohei Ohtani has decided to join the Angels Organization,” the club said in a statement. “We felt a unique connectivity with him throughout the process and are excited he will become an Angel. This is a special time for Angels fans, the Ohtani family, and (agent) Nez Balelo and the team at Creative Artists Agency.”The Angels will introduce Ohtani at a press conference on Saturday at 3 p.m. at Angel Stadium. It will be televised by Fox Sports West. The press conference is also open to the public. General Manager Billy Eppler, Manager Mike Scioscia and owner Arte Moreno will be on hand to discuss the signing at that time.Ohtani was posted a week ago, and within a few days he had narrowed his choice to seven teams: the Angels, Dodgers, Padres, Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers, San Francisco Giants and Chicago Cubs.His agent, Balelo, released a statement on Friday announcing his choice: “While there has been much speculation about what would drive Shohei’s decision, what mattered to him most wasn’t market size, time zone or league but that he felt a true bond with the Angels. He sees this as the best environment to develop and reach the next level and attain his career goals.” Shohei Ohtani’s career in Japan: Inside the numbers last_img read more
