WASHINGTON — U.S. consumer confidence rose in January as Americans became more optimistic about the future. The Conference Board reported Tuesday that its consumer confidence index increased to 89.3, a rebound from December when it dipped to 87.1. The increase was fueled by the board's rising expectations index, which measures perceptions about the future path of incomes, business and labour market conditions. The present situation index weakened further, however, reflecting concerns over the resurgence of COVID-19. “The slow rollout of the vaccines and the still raging pandemic continue to depress consumer confidence despite the prospect of further fiscal aid and a brighter and a brighter health situation,” said Kathy Bostjancic, chief U.S. financial economist at Oxford Economics. For January, the report showed that the views on current conditions weakened with the percentage of consumers who ranked business conditions as bad rising from 39.7% to 42.8%. Consumers' perceptions of the labour market also declined with the percentage of consumers saying that jobs are plentiful declining from 21% to 20.6% while those claiming jobs were hard to get rising from 22.9% to 23.8%. In terms of future prospects, the per cent of consumers expecting business conditions to improve over the next six months increased from 29.5% to 33.7%. The survey found that the number of people expecting to buy a home in the next six months improved to a reading of 7.2%, up from 6% in December. Economists took this increase as a good indication that sales of existing homes should show improvements in coming months. Robert Frick, corporate economist at Navy Federal Credit Union, said this increase could indicates people are becoming more willing to move once virus levels drop. “That could free up tight housing inventories as an unusually high number of homeowners are choosing to stay in their homes during the pandemic,” he said.

CALGARY — Enerplus Corp. is increasing its bets on the Bakken light oil region in North Dakota through the purchase of a private rival for US$465 million. The Calgary-based company says it has agreed to buy Bruin E&P HoldCo, LLC, which has current production of about 24,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. Enerplus says it will fund the purchase with a new US$400-million term loan and a C$115-million equity financing. It says it will not assume any of Bruin's debt. It says most of Bruin's production and development prospects are located in the Fort Berthold area near Enerplus's main property. Enerplus reported fourth-quarter production of 86,200 boepd and said that is expected to rise to an average of about 106,000 boepd in 2021 on capital spending of between C$335 million and C$385 million if the Bruin deal goes through by early March as expected. Enerplus produces oil in Canada, but most of its production comes from the U.S., with oil and gas wells in North Dakota and Montana and natural gas in the northeastern United States. “With immediately adjacent acreage offering strong operational synergies, Bruin’s assets are highly complementary to our existing tier 1 position in the Bakken and will enable us to accelerate free cash flow growth and further support our focus on providing long term sustainable shareholder returns," said Enerplus CEO Ian Dundas.

(Bloomberg) -- China is so hungry for American crops that it’s driving earnings of one of the world’s largest agricultural commodities traders to a record.Archer-Daniels-Midland Co. delivered all-time high earnings of $3.59 a share on an adjusted basis last year, and Chief Executive Officer Juan Luciano expects another record year in 2021. China is scooping up U.S. crops, pushing combined American corn and soybean exports to a record in the fourth quarter, according to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture compiled by Bloomberg.Profits at the Chicago-based company’s traditional business are a stark turnaround after years of bumper crops that curbed the volatility traders need to thrive. They also come on top of growth from ADM’s diversification away from trading, with bets on things like veggie burgers, pet food and probiotics.“Our Ag Services and Oilseeds team delivered outstanding results in 2020, crossing the $2 billion profit mark by capitalizing on our unparalleled and flexible global footprint to meet strong demand,” Luciano said in a statement Tuesday. “We expect strong growth in segment operating profit and another record year of EPS in 2021.”ADM shares, which rose to a record last week, rose 0.4% before falling 1.5% by 10:47 a.m. in New York.“The equity market has been expecting a big 4Q from ADM given outstanding operating conditions during the quarter and the company delivered,” said Vincent Andrews, an analyst at Morgan Stanley. “The question now is how good 2021 will be.”The company also beat expectations for the fourth quarter, delivering adjusted earnings per share of $1.21. That’s 12% higher than analysts had forecast. ADM’s traditional business, which consists of grain trading and handling and oilseeds processing, set a record adjusted operating profit in the quarter.“Ag Services results were significantly higher than the prior-year period, driven by great execution in North America, where the business capitalized on strong global demand, particularly from China, to deliver higher export volumes and margins,” the company said in the statement.Profits from soybean processing were also “substantially higher” than a year earlier due to tight supplies and strong demand for meal, a key ingredient in animal feed, as well as oils used for cooking and biodiesel. Demand for soybean oil for renewable diesel could reach 0.5 billion pounds a year, Luciano said.ADM’s nutrition business delivered 24% growth in operating profit and the company expects “solid revenue expansion” and profit expansion from the unit in 2021. Results for its Vantage Corn Processors unit, which contains the three dry ethanol mills ADM wants to offload, were higher versus a year earlier, “though they continued to reflect the challenged ethanol industry environment.”The company increased its cash dividend by 2.8% from the previous quarter. It also expects a better environment for its ethanol business as China has already bought a record amount of the biofuel, said Chief Financial Officer Ray Young.READ: World’s Largest Crop Traders Are Finally Rewarding Wall Street(Updates with analyst comment in sixth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
