UPDATE 1-Euro zone bond yields edge down on oil ahead of expected Fed cut

UPDATE 1-Euro zone bond yields edge down on oil ahead of expected Fed cutEuro zone government debt yields edged lower on Tuesday as geopolitical uncertainty following the weekend attack on Saudi oil facilities underpinned a cautious tone in bond markets ahead of this week's expected U.S. rate cut. Topped by uncertainty around Brexit, this halted a sell-off in euro zone government bonds after yields reached six-week highs last week. U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday he did not want to go to war, and added that the United States was still investigating if Iran was behind the Saudi strikes.

Oxycontin maker Purdue begins bankruptcy in push to settle opioid lawsuits

Oxycontin maker Purdue begins bankruptcy in push to settle opioid lawsuitsPurdue, which filed for Chapter 11 on Sunday, has said it sought bankruptcy to implement a settlement with the state and local governments who have accused it of deceptive marketing of opioids by overstating benefits and downplaying risks. The settlement, which is estimated to be worth up to $12 billion, would require the Sackler family to cede ownership of Purdue to a trust, to sell their non-U.S. pharmaceutical businesses and to contribute at least $3 billion. The company has said in court filings it was facing an "unmanageable" amount of litigation over its alleged role in a public health crisis that has been blamed for nearly 400,000 overdose deaths between 1999 and 2017, according to the latest U.S. data.

ANALYSIS-Euro zone's 140 billion-euro interest windfall could allow spending boost

ANALYSIS-Euro zone's 140 billion-euro interest windfall could allow spending boostRecord-low borrowing costs and falling debt payments could give the euro zone a 140 billion-euro windfall by the end of 2021, freeing cash for projects ranging from new roads to climate protection. With Germany teetering near recession and the European Central Bank's monetary policy looking maxed out, many now regard government spending as the key to lifting growth and inflation. At current yields, euro zone governments will save an average 0.10% of gross domestic product in interest this year, or almost 12 billion euros, Frank Gill, senior director in the sovereigns team at ratings agency S&P Global, estimates.

Saudi Aramco pursues IPO planning despite attack damage doubts

Saudi Aramco pursues IPO planning despite attack damage doubtsRIYADH/LONDON, Sept 17 (Reuters) - Saudi Aramco is pressing ahead with its listing plans this week, although some investors and analysts doubt it can now meet its timeline as it has not said when oil output will be restored after attacks on its facilities. Reuters has reported it could take months for Aramco, the world's biggest oil firm, to restore output after Saturday's attacks, which cut production by 5.7 million barrels per day, some 5% of world oil supply. The state-owned oil group will meet local Saudi banks to discuss the initial public offering (IPO) plans, but bankers at international lenders working on the IPO told Reuters there had been no communication from Aramco's management on any delay.

Indian tax panel unlikely to favour tax rate cut for auto sector -sources

Indian tax panel unlikely to favour tax rate cut for auto sector -sourcesIndia's goods and services tax (GST) panel is unlikely to approve lowering the tax for the auto and allied components sector this week, as a study has warned of major revenue losses, two government officials said. A government study, attached to the agenda of a Sept. 20 GST panel meeting, has said the total annual revenue loss could be as much as 500 billion rupees ($6.95 billion), if the panel decided to lower tax rates for the auto sector to 18% from 28%. Meanwhile, state officials in Kerala, Punjab and West Bengal say they are also opposed to any cut in tax rates in the autos sector, or even consumer goods, because of lacklustre tax collections this fiscal year.
