    Unending Midwest Rains Add to Wettest 12 Months Ever in U.S.

    Heavy showers will fall from Texas to the Great Lakes as a months-long pattern of storms continues for at least the next week, said David Roth, a senior branch forecaster at the U.S. Weather Prediction Center. The Arkansas River, which empties into the Mississippi, is forecast to set flood records by next week in Van Buren, Arkansas, and the Toad Suck lock and dam in Conway. The Army Corps of Engineers is monitoring the Mississippi to see if the Morganza spillway in Louisiana should be opened to mitigate the flooding.

    Lower sales in France weigh on Kingfisher's growth

    British home improvement retailer Kingfisher missed forecasts for sales growth in its latest quarter, held back by the weak performance of its French businesses. Kingfisher, whose main businesses are B&Q and Screwfix in Britain and Castorama and Brico Depot in France and elsewhere, is in the fourth year of a five-year programme that was designed to boost earnings. This year, first quarter like-for-like sales rose 3.4%, 6.2% and 24.6% in the UK & Ireland, Poland and Romania respectively but were down 3.7% in France.

    Save Indian Capitalism From Indian Capitalists

    It raises yet again a question that’s puzzled two successive governments and will continue to bedevil whichever party takes power after elections conclude next month: What’s killing capitalism in India? Jet was born in the early 1990s, when India’s closed Soviet-style planned economy had just started embracing globalization and private enterprise. An airline that was at one point the industry’s dominant player should theoretically have been able to thrive.

    What Jet’s Collapse Says About India

    India’s oldest privately owned airline suspended operations on a “temporary” basis on Wednesday after failing to secure a bailout. On one level, you could argue that this is a good sign for India: Its institutions are holding up. State-owned banks are Jet’s biggest creditors and they seem unwilling to throw more money at the airline without a clear revival plan.

    China data, trade hopes boost European shares

    China's manufacturing sector surprisingly returned to growth for the first time in four months. The country's State Council on Sunday said additional tariffs on imports of U.S. vehicles and auto parts would continue to be suspended after April 1 in a goodwill gesture. "It's the optimism coming out of China," said Naeem Aslam, chief market analyst at TF Global Markets (UK) Ltd in London.

    Kingfisher CEO to leave after profits go into reverse

    Home improvement retailer Kingfisher is parting company with Chief Executive Véronique Laury after it reported a 13 percent fall in annual profit, more than halfway through a five-year transformation plan that was designed to boost earnings. The group, whose main businesses are B&Q and Screwfix in Britain and Castorama and Brico Depot in France and elsewhere, has just entered the fourth year of a five-year programme that aimed to raise annual profit by 500 million pounds from 2021. Kingfisher said on Wednesday that separating out the 500 million pound targeted profit improvement from the rest of the business no longer reflected how it is managed -- effectively an abandonment of the target.

    FTSE 100 ends flat as another key Brexit vote looms

    The FTSE 100 was flat while the FTSE 250 was up 0.2 percent. The index was also supported by Standard Life Aberdeen which rose 2.4 percent on its best day since early January after posting full-year results and saying that it was doing away with a dual-CEO management structure. Lawmakers voted against Prime Minister Theresa May's amended Brexit deal by 391 to 242 on Tuesday, forcing parliament to decide whether to back a no-deal Brexit or seek a last-minute delay to the process.

    Kingfisher Should Try the Deconstruction Trade

    It looks as if that is what’s about to happen at DIY retailer Kingfisher Plc. The board is considering sacking Chief Executive Officer Veronique Laury, who has led the chain since the end of 2014, according to the Sunday Times.

    Facing collapse, Jet has been trying to restructure its debt and seeking bailout money from founder Naresh Goyal and leading shareholder Etihad Airways PJSC. Should those attempts fail, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will have to explain the loss of 23,000 jobs ahead of May elections. Air India, known locally as the Maharajah, has been in similarly dire straits.

    FTSE 100 manages small gains as May outlines Brexit Plan B

    London's FTSE 100 (.FTSE) closed 0.03 percent higher after hitting near session lows with sterling gaining ground following May's comments that she would seek further concessions from the EU on a back-up plan to avoid a hard border in Ireland. Trading on Monday was muted as U.S. markets remained closed for Martin Luther King day and volumes in both British indexes were a little over half the 90-day average daily turnover. Sterling (GBP=D3) hit session highs against the U.S. dollar after May promised to be more open with parliament in negotiating the country's future relationship with the European Union.

    Jet Needed Just One Rupee to Avert This Tailspin

    Since even that modest goal has proven elusive, India’s longest-surviving private airline now needs bankers with spine to keep flying. It’s been clear for some time that Jet, falling behind even on pilots’ wages, was going to skip a debt payment soon. As a full-service carrier, India’s second-largest airline spends that much more per available seat kilometer than its bigger rival, IndiGo.
