“This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The FTSE 100 index rallied 249 points yesterday! I like these 2 stocks that caught the surge I’ve been starting off several articles recently flagging the volatility we’re seeing on the FTSE 100 index at the moment. Yesterday was a perfect example of this. The index gained around 4.3% in a single day. This was put down to some positive results coming out from the US about a successful vaccine trial. Markets were further helped by the Federal Reserve Chairman, who offered some upbeat projections for the US economy. Even though this news is coming from across the pond from our American cousins, stock markets around the world are correlated. So the FTSE 100 index reacted well to the news from the US. Markets throughout Europe and beyond also posted gains. Amidst all this, there were some standout performers.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Come fly with usOne firm that was an obvious winner yesterday was easyJet (LSE: EZY). As I write, the share price is up over 10% so far this week, largely driven by market sentiment. Rival Ryanair also saw its shares rally by a similar amount. This despite reporting expectations of a £175m loss for the first quarter!Obviously, any effective vaccine would enable governments to not only ease, but completely remove, lockdown measures and travel bans. So for easyJet, it would mean more people could fly, which would boost revenues quicker than currently projected.Remember, a lot of pessimism has been priced-in to the share. It has a P/E ratio of just over 6, and a price-to-book ratio of 0.76. The latter ratio highlights that the market currently values the firm at less than the intrinsic value (assets etc) of the business. So from here, there’s plenty of room for the share price to move higher without it flashing red as being overbought.Keeping connectedVodafone (LSE: VOD) is another firm that gained from the general positive momentum yesterday. I think some of this is being carried over from last week, with the news that Vodafone is still going to pay a dividend to investors. Given the many FTSE 100 giants that have cut dividends, this news is very welcome. Naturally, if you’re an income-seeking investor, Vodafone might suddenly have become top of your buy list. It currently has a dividend yield of 6.39%, so higher than the FTSE 100 average.Aside from the good news on the dividend, recent trading updates said that Vodafone shouldn’t see a material downturn in earnings this year. Profit is expected to be flat or slightly down, but not falling off a cliff. Add to this a solid 2019/20 financial year to March, when the business grew revenues by 3%, and I can see why investors are feeling positive on the stock.Further gains ahead for the FTSE 100 index?Given the positive sentiment, there’s nothing stopping the FTSE 100 index moving higher throughout this week. If we see this continuing, I’d once again expect to see the sectors most sensitive to the virus outperforming.

Organisation RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance Receive email alerts United Arab EmiratesMiddle East – North Africa The Emirati authorities have been harassing and arresting users of BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) who allegedly tried to organise a protest against an increase in the price of gasoline (one of the highest in the Arab world). The protest was eventually called off. BBM user Badr Ali Saiwad Al Dhohori, an 18-year-old resident of Ras Al Khaimah, has reportedly been held in Abu Dhabi since 15 July. The authorities were able to trace the organiser, known as “Saud,” because he included his BlackBerry PIN in a BBM message he sent calling for the protest. They held Saud for a week and interrogated him to trace those he had been messaging. Accused of inciting opposition to the government, he has lost his job. At least five other members of the group have reportedly been summoned by the police or are still being sought.“We call for an end to this government witch-hunt against BlackBerry Messenger users who tried to get their fellow citizens to join them in a protest,” Reporters Without Borders said. “These young people did nothing bad. At first they planned a peaceful demonstration but they ended up calling it off because they did not want to break the law. They must not be made to pay for the government’s dispute with BlackBerry’s services, which it cannot control as it would like.”The press freedom organisation added: “Because they cannot decipher BlackBerry’s encrypted data and thereby gain access to its clients’ personal data, the security forces have decided to intimidate users in order to combat their potential for disseminating information. These summonses must stop. Al Dhohori and others potentially held at the moment in relation to this case must be freed without delay.”Any demonstration in the United Arab Emirates requires a special permit from the security forces which is extremely hard to obtain.The arrests come at a time when the authorities have been make increasing hostile comments about BlackBerry, accusing it of providing services that could cause security problems.

The Court was faced with the question whether the interpretation provided to the contract in the award of the Tribunal was reasonable and fair, so that the same passes the muster under Section 34 of the Arbitration Act. Delving into the ambit and scope of the court’s jurisdiction under Section 34 of the Arbitration Act (Application for setting aside arbitral award), the bench headed by Justice N. V. Ramana acknowledged that it is a settled position that a Court can set aside the award only on the grounds as provided in the Arbitration Act. “It is also settled law that where two views are possible, the Court cannot interfere in the plausible view taken by the arbitrator supported by reasoning”, stated the bench. However, in the present case, Oil India Ltd. had argued that the view taken by the Arbitral Tribunal was not even a possible interpretation, therefore the award being unreasonable and unfair suffers from perversity. Hence, the respondent had pleaded that the award ought to be set aside. “In this context, we may state that usually the Court is not required to examine the merits of the interpretation provided in the award by the arbitrator, if it comes to a conclusion that such an interpretation was reasonably possible”, clarified the bench Facts of the case The Appellant was awarded the work order pursuant to a tender floated by the Respondent-government enterprise in 1994. The contract agreement was for the purpose of well drilling and other auxiliary operations in Assam. During the subsistence of the contract, the prices of High Speed Diesel (“HSD”), one of the essential materials for carrying out the drilling operations, increased. Appellant raised a claim that increase in the price of HSD, an essential component for carrying out the contract triggered the “change in law” clause under the contract (i.e., Clause 23) and the Respondent became liable to reimburse them for the same. The said Clause 23 is entitled ‘Subsequently Enacted Laws’, and reads, “Subsequent to the date of price of Bid Opening if there is a change in or enactment of any law or interpretation of existing law, which results in additional cost/reduction in cost to Contractor on account of the operation under the Contract, the Company/Contractor shall reimburse/pay Contractor/Company for such additional/reduced cost actually incurred”. The Arbitral Tribunal held that while an increase in HSD price through a circular issued under the authority of State or Union is not a “law” in the literal sense, but has the “force of law” and thus falls within the ambit of Clause 23. While the District Court, in a challenge under section 34, upheld the award, the Gauhati High Court, on appeal under section 37 of the Arbitration Act, set aside the award. “I am of the firm view that clause 23 was inserted in the agreement to meet such uncertain and unforeseen eventualities and certainly not for revising a fixed rate of contract. I also find that both parties had agreed to keep ‘force majeure’ clause in the agreement. Under this doctrine of commercial law, a contract agreement can be rescinded for acts of God, etc. Under clause 44.3 of the agreement, ‘force majeure’ has been clearly defined, which includes acts and regulations of the Government to rescind a contract. In this way, clause 23 is very close and akin to the ‘force majeure clause’. Besides this, I may also declare that clause 23 is pari materia to the ‘doctrine of frustration and supervening impossibility’. In other words, under clause 23 rights and obligations of both the parties have been saved due to any change in the existing law or enactment of a new law or on the ground of new interpretation of the existing law”, ruled the High Court. Conclusions of the Apex Court In as much as the High Court suggested that Clause 23 is akin to a force majeure clause, the bench proceeded to discuss “the utility and implications of a force majeure clause”- “Under Indian contract law, the consequences of a force majeure event are provided for under Section 56 of the Contract Act, which states that on the occurrence of an event which renders the performance impossible, the contract becomes void thereafter. When the parties have not provided for what would take place when an event which renders the performance of the contract impossible, then Section 56 of the Contract Act applies. When the act contracted for becomes impossible, then under Section 56, the parties are exempted from further performance and the contract becomes void” The Apex Court continued to observe that the Contract Act had already recognised the harsh consequences of such frustration to some extent and had provided for a limited mechanism to ameliorate the same under Section 65 of the Contract Act, which imposes the Obligation of restitution on the person who has received advantage under the void agreement or the contract that becomes void. The Court also noted that, in the present case, the contract has explicitly recognised force majeure events to include “systems and acts and regulations of the Government of India and other clauses”. “Further, under Clause 22.23, the parties had agreed for a payment of force majeure rate to tide over any force majeure event, which is temporary in nature”, reads the judgment. “Having regards to the law discussed herein, we do not subscribe to either the reasons provided by the Arbitral Tribunal or the High Court. We also do not completely subscribe to the reasoning of the High Court holding that Clause 23 was inserted in furtherance of the doctrine of frustration. Rather, under Indian contract law, the effect of the doctrine of frustration is that it discharges all the parties from future obligations. In order to mitigate the harsh consequences of frustration and to uphold the sanctity of the contract, the parties with their commercial wisdom, chose to mitigate the risk under Clause 23 of the contract”, held the bench. As regards the Arbitral Tribunal, the three-judge bench remarked, “The majority award utilises ‘liberal interpretation rule’ to construe the contract, so that the price escalation of HSD could be brought under the Clause 23 of the contract. Further the Arbitral Tribunal identifies the aforesaid clause to be a ‘Habendum Clause’, wherein the rights granted to the appellant are required to be construed broadly”. The top court reflected that The interpretation of Clause 23 of the Contract by the Arbitral Tribunal, to provide a wide interpretation cannot be accepted, as the thumb rule of interpretation is that the document forming a written contract should be read as a whole and so far as possible as mutually explanatory. “It is important to note that the contract price was payable to the ‘contractor’ for full and proper performance of its contractual obligations. Further, Clauses 14.7 and 14.11 of the Contract states that the rates, terms and conditions were to be in force until the completion or abandonment of the last well being drilled.From the aforesaid discussion, it can be said that the contract was based on a fixed rate. The party, before entering the tender process, entered the contract after mitigating the risk of such an increase”, inferred the bench. “If the purpose of the tender was to limit the risks of price variations, then the interpretation placed by the Arbitral Tribunal cannot be said to be possible one, as it would completely defeat the explicit wordings and purpose of the contract. There is no gainsaying that there will be price fluctuations which a prudent contractor would have taken into margin, while bidding in the tender. Such price fluctuations cannot be brought under Clause 23 unless specific language points to the inclusion”, it ruled. The Supreme Court reached the conclusion that the interpretation of the Arbitral Tribunal to expand the meaning of Clause 23 to include change in rate of HSD is not a possible interpretation of this contract, taking note of the other contractual terms which also suggest that such interpretation of the clause is is perverse- “For instance, Item 1 of List II (Consumables) of Exhibit C (Consolidated Statement of Equipment and Services Furnished by Contractor or Operator for the Onshore Rig Operation), indicates that fuel would be supplied by the contractor, at his expense”. “The existence of such a clause shows that the interpretation of the contract by the Arbitral Tribunal is not a possible interpretation of the contract”, decided the Court.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment]Next Story
