    [$$] Trump asks SEC to study scrapping quarterly earnings reports

    US president Donald Trump has asked the Securities and Exchange Commission to consider scrapping the demand that public companies report their earnings every three months, weighing in on a practice many blame for corporate short-termism. The unexpected intervention in a debate that has exercised executives and large investors came in a Twitter post in which Mr Trump said he had asked “some of the world’s top business leaders” what would improve business and the US job market. Indra Nooyi, PepsiCo’s outgoing chief executive, had suggested shifting from quarterly reporting to a “six-month system”, he said, predicting that such a move would “allow greater flexibility & save money”.

    Defensive shares keep FTSE aloft

    The UK's top share index held its ground on Friday, outperforming a broadly negative European market, as global trade uncertainty and political troubles closer to home spurred demand for defensive stocks and earnings filtered through. The blue chip FTSE 100 (.FTSE) index was up 0.1 percent at 7,694.98 points by 0916 GMT. The FTSE, dominated by companies with large foreign currency earnings, has found support from weakness in the pound, which has been on the backfoot this week amid signs of discord in Prime Minister Theresa May's party over her Brexit strategy.

    Unilever forecasts improved sales as it reforms structure

    Unilever expects sales growth to accelerate in the second half of the year, as it pushes through price rises to offset higher commodity costs and works to collapse its dual-headed structure. An increasing number of UK-based shareholders are voicing concern about the plan to make Rotterdam its headquarters, which will likely seen Unilever drop out of Britain's blue chip FTSE 100 index. "We don't think the changes, as they currently stand are in the best interests of the company's UK investor base and we will be urging the group to reconsider its plans," Hargreaves Lansdown portfolio manager Steve Clayton said on Thursday.

    Unilever Expects Sales Growth to Bounce Back After Strike

    Unilever said it will make up some lost ground in the second half after a strike in Brazil held back sales growth in the early part of the year.

As Chief Executive Officer Paul Polman prepares to leave after nearly a decade, he’s completing work on a plan to consolidate the company’s headquarters in the Netherlands, despite dissent from some investors.
