Italy's benchmark borrowing costs dropped to their lowest in over a week on Wednesday after its government won a confidence vote in the senate and averted a collapse. Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte narrowly won a confidence vote in the upper house Senate on Tuesday, allowing him to remain in office after a junior partner quit his coalition last week in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Italian benchmark 10-year bond yields dropped to their lowest since Jan 11 - before Conte lost his majority - at 0.533%, down 2 basis points on the day.

The move makes Grieg Seafood the first global salmon producer to invest in land-based salmon farming. The joint venture Årdal Aqua will produce at least 3 000 tonnes of post-smolt annually and grow fish all the way to harvest size in a new land-based facility in Rogaland in Southern Norway. Grieg Seafood owns one third of the company. “We are working hard to improve biology and fish welfare, and to reduce our impact. For a long time, we have invested in post-smolt, where we keep the fish longer on land before we release it into the sea, as an important part of the solution. With Årdal Aqua we will be able to develop this farming method further. We aim for all of our fish in Rogaland to spend less than one year in the sea,” says Andreas Kvame, CEO of Grieg Seafood and Chair of Årdal Aqua. Land-based production to complement ocean farming The project is currently in the design development phase, and the company aims to start construction during the autumn of 2021. The facility will be built in Årdal in Rogaland, and has a production capacity of 5 000 tonnes annually according to current plans. The company aims to increase the production capacity further. With the current plans, the Årdal Aqua will create 25 local jobs in Rogaland. The company will deliver at least 3 000 tonnes of post-smolt annually to Grieg Seafood’s sea farms in Rogaland. In addition, the company aims to gradually produce fish to harvest size on land. “Through our post-smolt investments we acquire competence on how to produce larger fish on land. Based on this knowledge, Årdal Aqua will also grow fish all the way to harvest size. We will take a step-by-step approach, as we know how complex biology is,” Kvame continues. He is convinced that different farming technologies and methods will complement each other in the future. “With continuous improvements that reduce the impact from our sea farms, something we work a lot on, farming in the seas will still be the main component of the industry going forward. Land-based farming is, however, a great supplement, and we look forward to taking part in the development of this technology. What we know for sure is that the world will need a lot more healthy and nutritious food with the lowest possible impact,” says Kvame. Årdal Aqua is owned one third by Grieg Seafood, one third by the smolt and post-smolt company Vest Havbruk and one third by the Stavanger-based investor group Omfar. The company will release information about the investment cost when the design development phase is completed. It estimates an investment cost of 120 NOK/kg. About Grieg Seafood’s post-smolt strategy To reduce the time that the fish spends in open net pens in the sea is central to Grieg Seafood’s efforts to reduce our impact, improve fish welfare and increase biological control.Grieg Seafood is piloting our post-smolt strategy in Rogaland with post-smolt production at the fresh water facility Trosnavåg and the post-smolt joint venture Tytlandsvik Aqua. The company is also investing in post-smolt at the new fresh water facility under construction in Gold River in British Columbia, at the new fresh water facility in Newfoundland and at the post-smolt joint venture Nordnorsk Smolt in Finnmark.

Goldman Sachs Group reported better-than-expected earnings and revenues in the fourth quarter, driven by strong performance in its investment banking and global markets divisions. However, shares of the banking giant slipped 2.3% on Tuesday. Goldman Sachs’ (GS) 4Q earnings more than doubled to $12.08 per share from $4.69 per share in the year-ago period, surpassing analysts' expectations of $7.47 per share. Total revenue jumped 18% to $11.74 billion during the same period and came ahead of the Street's estimates of $9.99 billion. The bank’s top-line growth was fueled by a 27% growth in investment banking revenues. Meanwhile, global markets revenue grew 23% year-over-year. The bank's asset management revenue grew 7% year-over-year, while the consumer & wealth management business posted revenue growth of 17% on a year-over-year basis. In 4Q, net interest income increased 32% to $1.4 billion, while the provision for credit losses declined 13% to $293 million, due to reserve reduction on wholesale loans. As of Dec. 31, 2020, loans increased 6.4% to $116 billion, while deposits rose 36.8% to $260 billion. (See GS stock analysis on TipRanks) Following the earnings release, Oppenheimer analyst Chris Kotowski raised the stock’s price target to $445 (51.3% upside potential) from $407 and maintained a Buy rating. The analyst said, “Goldman has multiple levers to boost ROE [return on equity] over time (buybacks, shrink equity investments, costs, interest, payments revenues); shares are very attractive at only 1.3x TBV [tangible book value].” Kotowski added, “Goldman is less at risk than peers of significant COVID-19- related loan losses and is well poised to take advantage of heightened activity in global capital markets.” Overall, the rest of the Street is cautiously optimistic on the stock. The Moderate Buy analyst consensus shows 8 Buys, 2 Holds and 1 Sell. The average price target of $315.80 implies upside potential of about 7.3% to current levels. Shares have gained 20.8% over the past year.

With around 1.34 million total cases and 37,449 deaths as of Monday, South Africa is by far the African nation hardest hit by the pandemic and is grappling with a second wave of infections driven by a new variant of the virus first identified in the country. The government has said the first vaccine doses will arrive by the end of January, and South Africa will aim to vaccinate 40 million people by the end of 2021.
