Sales were expected to pick up a bit more in November although retailers were keeping an eye on the latest rise in coronavirus cases in Britain. But the survey's measure of stock adequacy sank to -23 in October, the seventh month in a row that it hit an all-time low. The shortages were expected to ease only moderately in November. "Disruption to supply chains, combined with staff shortages and uncertain public health conditions mean retailers are finding it difficult to plan for the winter ahead," CBI economist Ben Jones said. The CBI has long argued that the system is out of date and penalises companies which invest in energy efficiency.

Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT) sign is seen at their headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden October 1, 2018. Citi analysts said the company had achieved a solid beat of expectations in international subscriber growth, which should give the market increased confidence in the group's growth trajectory. The company's international markets include Estonia, Latvia, Poland and Lithuania, and it plans to launch in Britain, Canada, Germany, Austria and Switzerland, taking the number of markets to 16 by the end of 2023. Its subscriber count also got a boost due to streaming of sporting events such as the Bundesliga, English Premier League, UEFA competitions and Formula One. Costs will increase along with the expansion and a significant chunk of that will come in 2022, Jensen said.

LONDON, Oct 26 (Reuters) - Sterling touched a new 20-month high against the euro on Tuesday, driven by diverging interest rate expectations for Britain and the euro zone, though concerns over economic growth and EU ties kept the currency broadly flat on the day. Money markets are pricing in a rate hike by the Bank of England at its Nov. 4 meeting, helping the pound rally around 2% versus the euro and the dollar so far this month . Short-dated gilt yields too have slipped from 17-month highs hit last week, with fears growing that impending policy tightening will exacerbate the slowdown. “Euro-sterling is trading close to the bottom end of its post-referendum low on BoE hike expectations. But UK growth momentum is weakening, which could see euro-sterling turn,” Bilal Hafeez, head of the MacroHive consultancy, told clients.

REUTERS/Stephen Hird(Reuters) - Reckitt Benckiser Group on Tuesday raised its full-year forecast after reporting higher-than-expected third-quarter sales, driven by price hikes and a spurt in demand for Mucinex cold and flu remedies as well as for sexual wellness products. The Lysol cleaning products maker reported a surprise 3.3% rise in like-for-like sales for the third quarter, beating the 0.7% decline analysts had expected, according to a company-supplied consensus. The company also raised its full-year net revenue like-for-like sales growth forecast to 1-3% from flat to up 2% earlier, but cautioned that growth would be “softer” in the fourth quarter. Reckitt said it was seeing a 10% rise in raw material prices, compared with an 8-9% rise it had estimated previously.

He confirmed he would attend 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow. Brendon Thorne | Getty ImagesAustralia will target net zero carbon emissions by 2050, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Tuesday, but it will not legislate the goal and instead rely on consumers and companies driving emission reductions. They're taking action on climate change, but they also want to protect their jobs and their livelihoods. While Australia will introduce a 2050 target, Morrison said Canberra will not strengthen its 2030 target of reducing emissions by 26-28% from 2005 levels. However, Australia will surpass that target, reducing emissions by 2030 by between 30-35%, he said.

JAKARTA, Oct 26 (Reuters) - The United States and Indonesia on Tuesday called for the launch of a forum to prepare for future pandemics, urging members of the Group of 20 leading economies to seize an opportunity this month to plan for an international response system. "We have all personally grappled with the deep human and economic cost brought on by this borderless, unforgiving pandemic. The United States and Indonesia, which have similar size populations, have been among the worst affected in their respective regions. The G20 includes the United States, Japan, Britain, Russia, Brazil, China, Germany, Canada, Australia and South Korea, among others. It called for greater inclusiveness and less bureaucracy and said a joint response was critical for poorer counties that lack resources to respond fast, including with vaccinations.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and David Attenborough speak with school children during a conference about the COP26 UN Climate Summit, at the Science Museum in London, Britain February 4, 2020. Britain has cast the United Nations COP26 climate conference which begins in Glasgow on Oct. 31 as the last big chance to slow rising temperatures, and hopes to persuade leaders to adopt tougher climate targets. "Every day that goes by in which we don't do something about it is a day wasted," he said. The U.N. said on Monday greenhouse gas concentrations had hit a record last year and the world was "way off track" in capping rising temperatures. Attenborough said leading nations had a duty to help poorer countries because industrialisation had been one of the major factors in driving climate change.

Slideshow ( 2 images )(Reuters) - U.S.-based ride hailing app owner Uber Technologies and Europe’s largest retailer Carrefour are to launch a new rapid grocery delivery service in Paris, extending their 18-month partnership, the two companies said on Tuesday. Earlier this year, the French retailer agreed to take a minority stake in the newly founded start-up Cajoo, which operates “dark stores” across the country. “Over the past 18 months people have increasingly come to expect quick and reliable delivery ... in Europe alone we’ve seen a triple-digit increase in demand for grocery delivery,” Eve Henrikson, Regional General Manager, Uber Delivery EMEA, said in a statement. Uber and Carrefour are already offering 30-minute deliveries in France from Carrefour’s almost 2,000 shops available on Uber’s app under a deal agreed last year. Uber and Carrefour plan to expand the 15-minute service to other major French cities such as Lyon, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Lille and Montpellier in coming weeks, they said.

REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach/File PhotoThe pan-European STOXX 600 closed largely unchanged at 472.21 points, with concerns over rising inflation and slowing economic growth also weighing on sentiment. But rising yields weighed on industrials and utilities, as they made future returns from the sectors, which are largely dividend-linked, appear less attractive. The STOXX 600 finished at over six-week highs last week, buoyed by optimism about the earnings season. Of the 18% of STOXX 600 companies that have issued third-quarter reports so far, 63% topped analysts’ profit estimates, as per Refinitiv I/B/E/S data.
