Coronavirus

Daily COVID cases in England hit another record high of 117,093 over the festive period but the surge in cases has, so far, not led to a similarly large increase in hospital admissions. The government has so far refrained from introducing new restrictions in England on hospitality and large events.

Stocks

AstraZeneca (LON:AZN) - Closed global development and commercialisation deal with Ionis Pharmaceuticals for eplontersen.  The upfront payment from AstraZeneca to Ionis is $200 million. AstraZeneca will make additional conditional payments of up to $485 million following regulatory approvals. It will also pay up to $2.9 billion of sales-related milestones, plus royalties in the range of low double-digit to mid-twenties percentage depending on the region.

Anglo American (LON:AAL) - Held preliminary discussions with Vale about the possibility to jointly develop Vale’s Serpentina iron ore resource that is contiguous to Anglo American's integrated Minas-Rio iron ore operation in Brazil.

Fresnillo (LON:FRES) - Provides update on Juanicipio project. The team delivered the project for plant commissioning on schedule. However, the 'Comisión Federal de Electricidad', the state-owned electrical company, has notified Fresnillo that approval to complete the tie-in to the national power grid cannot yet be granted and the mill commissioning timeline will therefore be extended by approximately six months.

Diversified Energy Company (LON:DEC) - Closed the sale of its predominantly undeveloped Haynesville acreage in Texas for a total cash consideration of approximately $67.4 million.

Comment Guidelines

We encourage you to use comments to engage with users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind: 

  • Enrich the conversation
  • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.
  • Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically.
  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and links within a comment will be removed
  • Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user.
  • Don’t Monopolize the Conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also believe strongly in giving everyone a chance to air their thoughts. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
  • Only English comments will be allowed.

Perpetrators of spam or abuse will be deleted from the site and prohibited from future registration at Investing.com’s discretion.
