    Could Australian Vanadium Limited's (ASX:AVL) Investor Composition Influence The Stock Price?

    If you want to know who really controls Australian Vanadium Limited (ASX:AVL), then you'll have to look at the makeup of its share registry. Warren Buffett said that he likes 'a business with enduring competitive advantages that is run by able and owner-oriented people'. Australian Vanadium is a smaller company with a market capitalization of AU$24m, so it may still be flying under the radar of many institutional investors.

    Facing farmer anger, Trump scrambles Cabinet to brainstorm on biofuel policy: sources

    WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump, faced with mounting anger in the farm belt over policies that allow oil refineries to use less corn-based ethanol, summoned Cabinet members on Thursday to discuss ways to boost biofuel demand, four sources familiar with the matter said. Throughout his 2016 campaign that brought him to power, Trump championed ethanol but also courted the oil industry. Trump met with Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Andrew Wheeler at the White House, the sources said.

    'It's devastating'. End of GM in Ohio town as Trump fails to bring back midwest jobs

    For years, the General Motors plant in Lordstown, Ohio, employed 8,000 workers in the Mahoning valley. In a rust belt region that has become synonymous with industrial decline, following the closure of its once mighty steel mills in the 1970s, the presence of the Chevrolet factory in Lordstown, and its well-paid manufacturing jobs, was particularly important. The company had already scaled back workers at the Lordstown plant, and this closure saw 1,500 workers, the last of the once huge workforce, out of their jobs.

President Donald Trump wasted no time responding, hinting on Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) that he is preparing to take action to stop the U.S. dollar's rise to record highs. As a reminder, China responded to Trump's last salvo of import tariffs with an aggressive weakening of their currency — which then caused the U.S. Treasury to label the country a currency manipulator.
