HOUSTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Higher natural gas futures prices for 2021 and a continued glut of crude oil are prodding U.S. shale firms to boost gas drilling and production. REUTERS/Shannon Stapleton/File PhotoShale producers are increasing spending on natural gas, a change from the past, amid forecasts for a 45% jump in gas prices next year compared to a 15% gain for Brent prices. The number of U.S. rigs drilling for natural gas, an indicator of future output, has climbed 13% to 77 since July. Natural gas “has not been hit as hard as crude,” by the COVID-19 pandemic, said Bernadette Johnson, a vice president at data provider Enverus. GAS SHARES CLIMBGas prices are benefiting in part from oil drilling cutbacks that reduced associated gas, or gas produced as a byproduct of oil output.

BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s biggest private steel producer, Jiangsu Shagang Group, said on Monday it will invest 14.8 billion yuan ($2.25 billion) in buying up and modernising steel mills in central Henan province in a project to create a high-end manufacturing base. Led by Anyang Yongxing Special Steel Co Ltd, a unit of Shagang based in Henan, the project targets annual iron capacity at 4.94 million tonnes and steel capacity at 5.5 million tonnes when complete, the company said, confirming a local media report. The company declined to identify potential acquisition targets by name, but said private mills in the Anyang city area would be involved. Anyang Yongxing currently has iron and steel capacity at 1.85 million tonnes and 2.22 million tonnes, respectively. Henan produced 32.99 million tonnes of crude steel in 2019, data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration is poised to add China’s top chipmaker SMIC and national offshore oil and gas producer CNOOC to a blacklist of alleged Chinese military companies, according to a document and sources, curbing their access to U.S. investors and escalating tensions with Beijing weeks before President-elect Joe Biden takes office. Slideshow ( 2 images )Reuters reported earlier this month that the Department of Defense (DOD) was planning to designate four more Chinese companies as owned or controlled by the Chinese military, bringing the number of Chinese companies affected to 35. A recent executive order issued by President Donald Trump would prevent U.S. investors from buying securities of the listed firms starting late next year. “The Company has no relationship with the Chinese military and does not manufacture for any military end-users or end-uses.”The DOD, the Chinese embassy in Washington and CNOOC did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The directive is unlikely to deal the firms a serious blow, experts said, due to its limited scope, uncertainty about the stance of the Biden administration and already-scant holdings by U.S. funds.

TIKRIT, Iraq (Reuters) - A rocket hit a small oil refinery in northern Iraq on Sunday, causing a fire at a fuel storage tank and forcing a complete shutdown of operations after the blaze spread to a nearby pipeline network, two refinery officials said. Islamic State claimed responsibility for attacking the Siniya refinery, in a statement posted on the group’s official channel. A spokesman for the state-run Northern Refineries Co, which manages a number of Iraqi refineries, earlier told Iraq’s state news agency that two rockets had hit the Siniya refinery, causing a fire that it said had been controlled. Officials said halting operations at the Siniya refinery, which has refining capacity of 30,000 barrels per day, was a safety measure to prevent further damage. There were no reports of casualties at the facility, which is near Iraq’s largest oil refinery of Baiji in the Northern Salahuddin province.

Krawiec said that rather than let him go, the Germans placed him and hundreds of other Polish prisoners into a cattle car and transported them to Auschwitz. Three weeks later, Krawiec said, he and the other captured Poles were abruptly transported to the Buchenwald concentration camp, which was in Germany proper and where the factories needed workers. A few years later, Krawiec moved to the rival paper Dziennik Związkowy and was appointed editor-in-chief, a post he held until he retired in 1985. Joanna Marszałek, a Dziennik Związkowy reporter, said Krawiec was long gone by the time she joined the paper. On Fridays, he drove into Chicago from his apartment in the suburb of Evanston and bought copies of the Polish newspaper for himself and his shut-in friends.

As Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season in the US, few companies have had to prepare quite like e-commerce and logistics giant Amazon. But the unprecedented nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on online shopping means even with those preparations, Amazon's logistics empire will be in for one of its toughest challenges yet. The spokesperson told Business Insider that Amazon has expanded its logistics network square footage by around 50% this year. That's a 50% increase from the 798,000 workers Amazon employed as of December 31, 2019. Multiple warehouse workers told Business Insider that it's rare to see coworkers last more than six months in the job due to the grueling conditions.

The Fear and Greed index, known for gauging investor sentiment, moved into "extreme greed" territory this week and was at 92 out of 100 on Friday. Some investors took note of Warren Buffett's famous advice to "be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful" this week when CNN Business' Fear and Greed index moved into "extreme greed" territory on Wednesday. The higher the index reading, the greedier investors are. His team tested market returns based on the seven indicators of the Fear and Greed index and found that results range from better-than-normal returns to just below-normal returns when greed is high. However, even after putting aside the high reading on the Fear and Greed index, not all is rosy for the markets.

In 1985, Ivan Boesky reportedly told the graduates of the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley that greed was "healthy." Legend has it the sentiment and Boesky himself inspired the iconic character Gordon Gekko in the 1987 movie "Wall Street." Today, Boesky's name may no longer be synonymous with Wall Street millions or corporate greed. But in the early 1980s, Boesky was an investment banking titan who made hundreds of millions of dollars betting on corporate takeovers. Boesky reportedly became the highest-paid trader on Wall Street in 1985, according to the Associated Press.

The automaker's finance arm, General Motors Financial Company Inc, has been talking to federal and state banking regulators for months about forming an industrial loan company and could file its applications as early as December, the report said here. “Industrial Loan Company” charters allow non-banks to originate loans and collect insured deposits. GM did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Wall Street stocks advanced, with the Nasdaq closing at a record high, on Friday in a holiday-shortened week as retailers kicked off the year-end shopping season amid record COVID-19 hospitalizations. The Nasdaq outperformed as investors favored tech-related, market-leading stocks that have fared well during the pandemic, while economically sensitive cyclical stocks weighed. All three indexes rose for the week, in which the S&P 500 reached a new closing high and the blue-chip Dow ended above 30,000 for the first time ever. Of the 11 major sectors in the S&P 500, healthcare companies enjoyed the largest percentage gains while energy shares had the biggest percentage loss. The S&P 500 posted 23 new 52-week highs and no new lows; the Nasdaq Composite recorded 154 new highs and nine new lows.

How Will Co-Living Survive the Pandemic?

Co-living residents often pay a higher price per square footage for a bedroom than what their neighbors in traditional buildings might pay. In the East Village, StreetEasy puts an apartment with three or more bedrooms at a median rent of $4,400. But in the long run, he says, after the pandemic is over, people will be drawn back to the co-living properties that provide more than just a room to rent. The most elusive amenity that co-living companies originally offered is that of community. In the pandemic, co-living companies have emphasized other aspects of their model, since many of their common areas are closed or limited, and meeting new people presents a health risk.
