Tencent’s Cash Dividend Weighs On Meituan
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Key News Asian equity markets were mixed overnight on light volumes as investors worried about financial contagion. Hong Kong had a volatile day as Jack Ma’s visit to China lifted Alibaba and the market, a rally that ran out of out of steam in the afternoon. Baidu fell -3.17% due to rumors of a delay in its ERNIE chat bot launch. Meituan fell -6.28% and was today’s most heavily traded in Hong Kong by value after the company’s Q4 financial results, which were announced after the close on Friday, beat estimates. The stock’s drop is likely driven by Tencent’s decision to deliver a cash spinoff of Meituan, rather than shares, which obviously requires selling Meituan shares in the open market. Healthcare was the only positive sector in both Hong Kong and Mainland China after CSPC Pharma’s mRNA Covid-19 vaccine was approved. Mainland markets were off though “outperformed,” i.e. they fell less than Hong Kong as CNY and the … [Read more...] about Tencent’s Cash Dividend Weighs On Meituan
Educator at Denver’s Bruce Randolph School arrested after being found with loaded gun on campus
An educator at a Denver school is on paid leave after being arrested for allegedly possessing a loaded handgun on campus — a weapon that was discovered after security staff searched for a student who had said he brought a gun to school. Dante Quint, 25, was arrested on suspicion of the felony charge on March 1 after school security allegedly found a gun in his backpack on Feb. 28 at Bruch Randolph School, court records show. Quint works as a paraprofessional at the school and is on paid leave while the investigation continues, Denver Public Schools spokesman Scott Pribble said in an email. The arrest came as Denver’s school district grapples with gun violence among its students. Quint was arrested the same day a 16-year-old student died of gunshot wounds after being shot outside East High School and three weeks before a 17-year-old student shot two and wounded administrators at the same high school before taking his own life hours later. Denver police responded to Bruce … [Read more...] about Educator at Denver’s Bruce Randolph School arrested after being found with loaded gun on campus

Ukraine And Russia Are Both Deploying Old T-55 Tanks. Ukraine’s Are Much Better.
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Desperate to make good some of the 1,900 or so tanks it has lost in 13 months of hard fighting in Ukraine, and struggling to build new tanks, the Kremlin has begun pulling out of storage 70-year-old T-55 tanks that the Soviet army retired back in the 1980s. Observers were aghast. The T-55 was obsolete decades ago. In a direct clash with better-equipped Ukrainian forces, the life-expectancy of a T-55’s four crew might be ... minutes? And Russian leaders know it. One Russian expert told Volya Media the tanks are “expendable.” But wait! Doesn’t the Ukrainian army have T-55s, too? Aren’t the ex-Slovenian tanks also death-traps? In fact, no. The T-55s that Ukraine got from Slovenia last fall are heavily-upgraded M-55S models . They have modern stabilized guns firing modern ammunition plus effective fire-controls and sights, as well as enhancements to their armor and engines. The Ukrainians have just 28 … [Read more...] about Ukraine And Russia Are Both Deploying Old T-55 Tanks. Ukraine’s Are Much Better.
