Institutional Shareholder Services, a proxy adviser, said Edward Bramson, the activist investor, had “not presented a sufficiently compelling case” in his campaign to convince other investors to vote him on to the Barclays board at its annual meeting on May 2. Mr Bramson has built up a 5.5 per stake in Barclays via his Sherborne Investors vehicle and is pushing for the UK-based lender to scale back its underperforming investment bank in an attempt to boost overall returns.

British bank Barclays and hedge fund Red Kite Group have settled a legal dispute in which the fund accused the bank of manipulating the copper market and causing it to lose money. "Legal proceedings between the Red Kite group as Claimants and Barclays Bank PLC as Defendant have been concluded on mutually acceptable terms," Barclays said in a statement on Thursday, without giving details of the settlement. Red Kite in 2017 sued Barclays for $850 million, alleging in court documents that the bank's proprietary traders were able to see the hedge fund's confidential trading positions on the London Metal Exchange (LME) that were being executed by another division of Barclays.
[Editor's Note: This story was previously published in February 2019. It has been updated and republished.]Cheap stocks are never "sure things." There are many cheaply traded companies, even penny stocks, under $10 right now that deserve to be there and will only get cheaper. Keep in mind that share value is all relative, however, among cheap stocks as well as expensive ones.For instance, Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) is worth about $1,865 per share right now. What will make it go up or down? Surely not its size alone, but rather its growth potential and Wall Street sentiment. The same is true for cheap stocks. You simply have to look deeper than the share price and explore the fundamentals and future growth potential.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsYes, some picks have fallen from great heights, but the only thing that matters is where they go from here -- not whether they ever get back to all-time highs from a decade ago. * 10 S&P 500 Stocks to Weather the Earnings Storm Staying objective is important, and you should always do your own research. But if you're looking for tips on cheap stocks to invest in, here are a few names that haven't went out of style yet: Cheap Stocks to Buy: AgroFresh (AGFS)Source: Shutterstock Share Price (as of 4/18): ~$3.29AgroFresh Solutions (NASDAQ:AGFS) is one of the best cheap stocks to buy now to capitalize on increased demand for healthier eating.AgroFresh specializes in technologies to keep produce like apples and avocados fresh and attractive to customers. Considering how once-seasonal fruits and veggies are in continuous demand in every geography, this is a no-brainer investment no matter the price.But with shares well under $10 a share and with AGFS hovering just above two-year lows but coiling up, this is a lock for any investor looking for cheap stocks to buy now. Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS)Source: Elliott Brown Via FlickrShare Price (as of 4/18): ~$7.03Royal Bank of Scotland (NYSE:RBS) may sound like a crazy bet on this list of the best cheap stocks to buy now, given the continuing malaise surrounding Brexit and continued anemic growth in the U.K. and the nearby eurozone.However, keep in mind that getting an over $40 billion bank for under $8 a share at present prices is a rare occurrence. The last time we saw massive banks like this trade at bargains, patient investors made a killing.Think Bank of America (NYSE:BAC), which traded for $7 or so as recently as 2012 as investors shunned the stock in the wake of the financial crisis and continued troubles. Now, BAC trades for $30. * 7 Stocks to Buy for Spring Season Growth RBS provides the same potential opportunity for patient and determined investors, as its shares are trading for just 67% of book value. Kinross Gold (KGC)Source: Jeremy Vohwinkle via Flickr (Modified)Share Price (as of 4/18): ~$3.36Kinross Gold (NYSE:KGC) is a bit risky, but what cheap stock isn't an aggressive investment?After struggling to find traction last fall, gold prices have been moving sideways thanks to uncertainty in the markets about if stock market growth will continue. If we see a market correction or an increase in uncertainty across the summer, gold prices and KGC stock will benefit nicely.And unlike a junior miner without much room for error, Kinross is a $4-billion-plus company with much better access to credit and capital so don't worry about it imploding because of short-term volatility in gold prices. Harmonic (HLIT)Source: Shutterstock Share Price (as of 4/18): ~$5.68Harmonic (NASDAQ:HLIT) is a video and audio systems company that helps digital media companies and traditional broadcast outlets process and produce their content. As podcasts and streaming video become the norm, HLIT services are increasingly in demand, particularly as the video and soundbites of an intensely partisan media environment are difficult to ignore.HLIT is scheduled to turn a profit of just 10 cents per share this year, but that's much better than previous fiscal years in the red. And if predictions hold, Harmonic will post 22 cents in earnings-per-share next year, more than doubling! * 7 Stocks That Can Outperform for Years As American consumers increasingly use alternative media sources and those digital outlets try to meet demand with audio and video, Harmonic should see continued growth in 2017 and beyond. That makes HLIT one of the best cheap stocks to buy now. BlackRock Capital Investment (BKCC)Source: Shutterstock Share Price (as of 4/18): ~$6.12BlackRock Capital Investment (NASDAQ:BKCC) is not to be confused with its $67 billion parent, investment management company BlackRock (NYSE:BLK).The smaller and more focused BKCC is a business development company that provides loans to small- and mid-sized firms, and the regular payments on that debt can provide for a juicy revenue stream and fuel big dividends. Right now, the company pays more than 11% in annual yield.The risk is that those dividends could be cut, as they were reduced from 21-cents-per-share in 2016 to the current level and even that 21-cent payday was down from 26 cents back in 2014. And of course, there's also a risk of share declines if companies BKCC lends to can't make good on that debt.But a mammoth dividend yield and a great brand like Blackrock are reasons to give this cheap stock the benefit of the doubt.Furthermore, if you believe in an economic expansion, then more midsize companies will look to expand and tap into BlackRock Capital to fuel that growth.Source: Shutterstock Avon Products (AVP)Share Price (as of 4/18): ~$2.68Avon Products (NYSE:AVP) is hardly the powerful cosmetics brand it once was. But remember: Many cheap stocks are often cheap for a reason as they've fallen from previous highs.Just because Avon trades for under $4 a share right now doesn't mean it's doomed. Rather, it just means that investors need to get realistic about what to expect. And frankly, it's realistic to expect a nice double-digit gain from here, even if the company doesn't revisit 2013 levels over $20 ever again.That's because AVP is expected to grow revenues over the next couple of years, even if it's only in the low single digits. * 7 AI Stocks to Watch with Strong Long-Term Narratives Sure, Avon stock has fallen on hard times, but it's up over 80% since Dec. 24. This is one of the best cheap stocks to buy now based on its current valuation and outlook, so long as you can look past the pain of a few years ago.

Retail sales “smashed expectations” in March as consumers continued to power the UK economy, despite a sharp rise in credit card defaults, official figures showed on Thursday. Retail revenues were up 1.1 per cent last month compared with February, much better than economists’ expectations of a fall of 0.3 per cent, the Office for National Statistics said on Thursday. The figures, which relate to the first three months of this year, raise questions over the sustainability of consumer spending.

AMSTERDAM/SEOUL (Reuters) - ASML Holding NV denied on Wednesday any involvement by its top client Samsung Electronics Co Ltd in an intellectual property theft case between the Dutch chip equipment maker and a competitor. ASML last week disclosed that former employees took company secrets to U.S. software maker Xtal Inc, which is funded by entities in South Korea and China and set up to sell a competing product to an existing ASML customer in South Korea. Speculation of Samsung's involvement was raised in media reports partly due to the South Korean firm's partnership with Xtal, which filed for bankruptcy in December after losing a $223 million judgement to ASML over the matter.
