The Americans will see attack on Saudi oil as an attack on them

-The Americans have always blamed Iran for sustaining the Yemen conflict and in a delicate region, this attack is very dangerous.

One of the two oil facilities struck in the early hours of Saturday morning was recently described by one industry expert as the the Achilles Heel of the Saudi oil industry.

Its size and production capacity makes it a critical part of the global oil supply industry.

It’s not yet clear how much damage was caused to the two plants or for how long production will be impacted, but the Saudi oil minister confirmed overnight a temporary loss of 5.7 million barrels per day of production because of the attacks.

For context, Saudi Arabia pumped 9.8 million barrels per day in August.

The Abqaiq plant was the target of a failed al Qaeda attack in 2006. Since then it has been heavily fortified but is still vulnerable from the air, especially from drones which can bypass air defence systems.

In terms of the impact on the global market and oil supply: well, short term there may be a problem which will become clear when the markets open on Monday morning.

But longer term the gap will probably be bridged by increasing production elsewhere and by releasing reserves into the market.

The much bigger concern now is the geopolitical fallout and the consequence for regional security.

The US government is in no doubt that the Saudi drone attacks were the work of Iran.

The operation was claimed by the Yemeni Houthi rebel group but they are known to get weapons and technology from their main backer, Iran, who are suspected by other nations to use relatively low-tech ‘attack drones’ as weapons.

With cheap new technologies, small attack or ‘kamikaze’ drones are proving to be disproportionately effective when successful.


Two weeks ago, Israel carried out what they said was a preemptive strike on fighters they said were linked to Iran’s elite Quds Force who were preparing to launch a drone from Syria (where Iran now has a strong foothold) to attack Israel.



US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Tehran had launched an “unprecedented attack on the world’s oil supply”, adding that there was “no evidence that the drones were launched from Yemen”.



It’s true that, geographically, the two oil refineries are closer to Iran and Iraq (where Iran has a foothold) than to Yemen

Wall Street analysts say these stocks look like safe bets in the US-China trade war

CNBC examined the most recent Wall Street research to find stocks that analysts like in the U.S.- China trade war.Stocks include Canada Goose, Akamai Technologies, Norwegian Cruise Lines, SolarEdge Technolgies and Maximus

Wall Street analysts say there are still plenty of opportunities to invest in quality stocks despite a trade war that feels never ending to many investors.

CNBC looked through recent Wall Street research to find stocks that analysts like amidst the U.S.-China trade war.
Since trade tensions ratcheted up Aug. 1, the S&P 500 is down more than 3%. Despite that, analysts say there’s no shortage of ways to play the pullback.

Data & full up to day insights:


Solar panel manufacturer SolarEdge Technologies is one company that’s not seeing a tariff disruption, according to analysts at JMP Securities.

“They shifted production to Eastern Europe a while ago,” analyst Joseph Osha told CNBC.

“SEDG’s efforts to shift away from China supply for the U.S. market appear to be working out,” Osha also said in a recent note.

The firm has an outperform rating on the stock while shares of the company are up 25% this month.

Maximus is a company that provides business outsourcing services to governments around the globe.

According to analysts at Raymond James, the company has a lack of China exposure and actually benefits during a global growth slowdown.

“Couple this with the fact that MMS is idiosyncratic to the macro, with immaterial tariff exposure, no China exposure, and a model focused on social programs that typically thrive as global growth recedes makes for a very intriguing story,” they said.

The stock is up 3% over the last month.

Content delivery network provider Akamai Technologies was recently named a “top recession” pick by analysts at Piper Jaffray.

The firm likes the company’s lack of China exposure. “The underlying market dynamics, especially due to over-the-top delivery, online gaming, and cloud security, will help Akamai’s business hold up better than most in a downturn,” the analyst said.

Explosión nuclear en Rusia cerca del Mar de Barents

MOSCÚ (Reuters) – La agencia nuclear estatal Rosatom dijo el sábado que cinco de sus empleados murieron en un accidente durante pruebas realizadas en una instalación militar en el norte de Rusia.

El accidente Ocurrió durante el soporte técnico y de ingeniería en las fuentes de energía isotópica de un sistema de propulsión líquida, dijo Rosatom en un comunicado.

La declaración no daba detalles de las fuentes de energía isotópica. Rosatom, contactado por Reuters, se negó a clarificar el tema.

Al preguntársele si se había producido una liberación de radiación como resultado del incidente, una portavoz dijo que Rosatom no tenía nada que informar, además de las declaraciones publicadas anteriormente por el Ministerio de Defensa y las autoridades regionales.

Otros tres miembros del personal sufrieron lesiones, incluidas quemaduras, y recibían tratamiento médico en instalaciones especializadas, según el informe.

Las autoridades rusas habían dicho anteriormente que dos personas habían muerto en el incidente y que una ciudad cercana había informado de un aumento de los niveles de radiación cuando un motor de cohete de propulsor líquido estalló el jueves en un lugar de pruebas en la región de Arkhangelsk.

Israeli crime boss shot dead in Mexico was underworld ‘legend’- “Times of Israel”

Ben Suthi had been in a decades long feud with one of Israel’s top criminal organizations at the time of his killing, which Mexican authorities believe was a ‘settling of scores’

An Israeli crime boss assassinated in Mexico on Wednesday was a notorious figure in Israel’s underworld, with a criminal career dating back to gang wars in the 1990s.

Tel Aviv native Ben Suthi was shot dead in broad daylight in an upscale shopping mall in Mexico City along with Alon Azoulay of Bat Yam.

In 1997, Suthi orchestrated the attempted killing of criminal rival Manny Aslan at a Tel Aviv eatery. His accomplices in the murder, the Mckayten brothers, were caught red-handed, and one turned state’s witness, implicating Suthi in the crime. Suthi was arrested, refused to reveal who ordered him to kill Aslan, and was sentenced to 16 years in prison.

He escaped from prison in 2001 and fled to Central America, where he was suspected of involvement in violent crime and drug trafficking. He was arrested in Mexico in 2004 and extradited to Israel to finish his prison sentence, Ynet reported.

“Even in the police, and in the underworld, they knew who Ben Suthi was,” Eli Senyor, a crime reporter for Yedioth Ahronot, told Channel 13. “The fact that he sat in Israeli prison for many long years, and before that was on the run, all of that didn’t undermine his status — it did the opposite. He was becoming a legend.”

Senyor described his killing as “an earthquake in the underworld, nothing less.

“There hasn’t been a killing of this magnitude in years,” Senyor said.

Police arrive at an upscale shopping mall at the south of Mexico City, July 24, 2019, where a woman wearing a blond wig disguise killed two Israeli men

Suthi was released from prison in Israel in February and was still regarded as one of the main enemies of the Mosli crime organization.

In the last year, the rivalry between Suthi and the Mosli group was likely connected to the slaying of two men in Tel Aviv’s Hatikva neighborhood, Uzi Bar Zion and Elad Sardinioff, who were killed in a car explosion. Another underworld figure, Sharon Dadon, was assassinated in a Ramat Gan parking structure in a suspected retaliation.

Mexican authorities said that Suthi’s killing may have been linked to the extradition of his associate Erez Akrishevsky, who was extradited from Mexico to Israel the day before the killing. Akrishevsky was close to Suthi, and had fled Israel with him in 2001, living for the past 18 years in Mexico under the assumed name Ricardo Lopez before he was caught by Mexican police this month and returned to Israel.

Mexican officials said Friday that the shooting, which included a diversionary attack with an assault rifle against police outside the mall, was likely linked to drug cartels and money laundering.

Mexico’s top police official wouldn’t say which cartel may have been involved in the brazen assault. Local media reported the shooters may have worked for the notorious Jalisco cartel, but officials refused to confirm that.

“These are a settling of scores between organized criminal gangs with various interests,” said Alfonso Durazo, the secretary of security and civilian protection.

NASA officials were all smiles following the AscentAbort-2 flight test of the launch abort system (LAS) for NASA’s Orionspacecraft on Tuesday, July 2.

That was a spectacular test we all witnessed this morning. It was really special for the program; a really big step forward to us,” Orion Program Manager Mark Kirasich said during a post-launch briefing about two hours after the launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. “It was a really great day all around — weather and the vehicle.”
