Business - Asia stocks reach three-year peak, China on the rise


Hong Kong`s key stock index rose 0.5 percent to its loftiest level in over 3-1/2 years on optimism that the economy has turned a corner and as investors wagered on more growth-friendly policies from Beijing. The charge had been led by Chinese banks after a Reuters report said the country`s fifth-biggest bank by assets planned to seek more private investors. `The recent rally of Hong Kong and China stock markets is pretty much liquidity-driven due to favourable fund flow. MSCI`s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan added 0.33 percent to be just a whisker from a peak last touched in April 2011.

Business - Exclusive: Goldman unit eyes foray into China amid metals financing scandal


By Josephine Mason, Melanie Burton and Susan Thomas NEW YORK/SYDNEY/LONDON (Reuters) - Goldman Sachs Group Inc`s metals warehousing unit is exploring its first foray into China, and privately held C Steinweg has expanded capacity there, sources said, as a financing scandal in a major Chinese port fuels a scramble for market share. It has intensified a battle between new entrants and entrenched rivals in the multi-billion dollar business of securely storing the world`s commodities in China, the world`s biggest producer and user of base metals. As Goldman ponders a possible move into China, Western warehousing companies already operating there, including Glencore Plc unit Pacorini Metals and Trafigura-owned Impala [TRAFGF.UL], are scrambling to defend their turf. Detroit-based Metro International Trade Services, a major warehousing company that Goldman bought in 2010, is looking at setting up shop in Shanghai and other bonded locations in the country, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters.

Business - Jaded Argentines brace for looming debt default


By Eliana Raszewski and Richard Lough BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Factory owner Norberto Garcia was poised to launch a series of new toys this year after grafting hard for the past decade to rebuild his business following Argentina`s 2001-2002 economic crash and debt default. Garcia`s wait-and-see attitude is typical of other businesses who anticipate a slowdown in sales in a country grappling with a surging inflation rate but are convinced any economic downturn will be moderate. While unsettling, the debt crisis today is a far cry from the turmoil of Argentina`s $100 billion default in 2002, and Garcia is optimistic things will ultimately improve. Argentina`s record default sent shockwaves through global capital markets and millions of Argentines lost their jobs as the economy collapsed.

Business - China brands beat global rivals with tea toothpaste & pickled plums


By Adam Jourdan and Clare Baldwin SHANGHAI/HONG KONG (Reuters) - With green-tea flavored toothpaste and pickled plum juice, an army of Chinese retailers is tapping local tastes to whittle away market share from global rivals that are banking their future growth on the world`s second-largest consumer market. Senior executives at companies such as The Coca-Cola Co , Procter & Gamble Co and Colgate-Palmolive Co are being forced to adapt as the challenge posed by local firms intensifies in a slowing economy. Last year, China`s 1.15 billion yuan ($185.31 million) consumer goods market grew at 7.4 percent annually, half the rate of three years ago, according to a report this month from Bain & Company and Kantar World Panel. In this tougher market, both local and foreign brands are targeting the same customers, and increasingly, the domestic firms are winning: nearly two-thirds of foreign brands surveyed lost market share in China last year, according to the report.

World - Factbox: EU paper details options for sanctions against Russia


European Union countries are considering tougher sanctions against Russia over its role in the conflict in eastern Ukraine and the downing of the Malaysian airliner that killed 298 people last week. Ambassadors of the 28-nation bloc met on Thursday to discuss options drafted by the executive European Commission, that could be turned into legal measures and approved as early as next week. Following are the key points of a Commission options paper that was the basis for the discussion: CAPITAL MARKETS * Russian banks with state ownership over 50 percent would not be able to raise capital through new share or debt issues on European Union`s capital markets * The ban would apply to debt, equity and other financial instruments with maturity longer than 90 days issued by state-run financial institutions after the ban enters into force * The ban would include both primary and secondary markets * The sanctions are expected to boost Russia`s borrowing costs, undermine public finances * Russian government debt would not be part of the ban in the initial stage.

Business - Results, jobs data buoy Wall Street, S&P eyes 2,000


By Rodrigo Campos NEW YORK (Reuters) - The S&P 500 hit a record high for a third straight session on Thursday, lifted by jobs data and earnings, but a weak reading in new home sales kept other key stock indexes little changed. Stocks had opened higher on strong job market data in the United States and overseas factory readings, while Facebook shares rallied after results beat expectations. Jobless claims fell to the lowest since mid-February 2006, pointing to continued strength in the labor market, but new home sales fell 8.1 percent in June, the most in almost a year, and May`s initial reading of a more than 18 percent gain was revised to just above 8 percent, putting a damper on sentiment as the housing market struggles.
