What’s on today

Australia housing finance, credit card and debit card lending, job ads.

Stocks to watch

Energy shares, iron ore producers.

Ben Potter banking analyst TS Lim has a “buy” on Commonwealth Bank and he’s increased his price target to $92.50 from $86.50.

CIMB has retained an “add” recommendation on Qantas and affirmed its previous price target of $3.50 a share.

Credit Suisse has increased its price target on Computershare to $13.60 from $12.60, and has raised it to “outperform” from “neutral”.

Currencies

CIMB has revised its outlook for the Australian dollar and now expects it to trade down to 77 US cents in the third quarter of this year, before rising to 84 US cents by the end of 2016.

Goldman Sachs has cut its long-term forecasts for the euro. It expects the single currency to slide to $US1.14 in three months, $US1.11 by June and $US1.08 by the end of 2015. It foresees euro parity with the greenback by the end of 2017.

Commodities

Global oil markets resumed their slide on Friday, with Brent and US crude hitting April 2009 lows and ending down for a seventh straight week.

The number of rigs drilling for oil in the United States fell by 61 last week, the most in a week since 1991, Baker Hughes reported. The rig count has fallen in 10 of the last 13 weeks, from a record high of 1609 in mid-October. The current count of 1421 in the week to January 9 is the lowest since February.

Oil analysis firm Wood Mackenzie said in a report on Friday that even at $US40 levels, less than 2 per cent of global crude production was at risk of making losses.

United States

US stocks fell on Friday following a two-day rally as December’s jobs report gave a mixed view of the economy, with financial shares leading the way lower.

All three major indexes posted slight losses for the week and fell back into negative territory for 2015.

Nonfarm payrolls increased by 252,000 last month after an upwardly revised jump of 353,000 in November, the Labor Department said on Friday. The jobless rate fell 0.2 percentage point to a 6-1/2-year low of 5.6 per cent, but that was mainly because people left the labour force.

Europe

A slump in Spanish and Italian lenders sent European stocks down for a second week, the longest streak since October.

The European Central Bank is studying models for buying as much as 500 billion euros of investment-grade assets, reports said. The amount is far lower than some market participants have been expecting.

Banks were the biggest losers among the 19 industry groups in the Stoxx 600, falling 3.2 per cent to their lowest level since September 2013. Spain’s Banco Santander shed 14 per cent.

German exports fell sharply in November and industrial output also declined. Later in the day, S&P affirmed the AAA rating it has for Germany.

I hope Santa was very kind to everyone and you all welcomed in 2015 in fine style.

The 12-Hole Wednesday Summer Competition began again on Wednesday December 31 after the little Christmas break.

Marg Hollow won with 23points (a new hip must be what we all need to play well) with Marie Cornish runner-up on 22pts.

The last game of 2014 was played on Wednesday December 17 which saw Carmen Cohen take home the Christmas turkey with 24points from Marie on 23pts.

Last Wednesday, many ladies must have decided their new year’s resolution was to get out and enjoy the earlier start of 8am for the summer months.

Thirteen turned up with 12 playing – Captain Sue Martin decided to be Marie, Lois Lang and Heather Peiper’s caddie for the morning due to stitches in her hand, but she assures us she will be back among the trees next week.

Congratulations girls on such a good roll-up with Marie winning on 25points from Carmen Cohen with 20pts.

After Wednesday’s play, onlyHamilton, Wimmera-Mallee andWarrnambool Blue remainedundefeated.

Wimmera-Mallee, in thirdplace, was scheduled to againstsecond-placed WarrnamboolBlue on Thursday for a spot inFriday’s grand final.

However, rain washed outThursday’s games, ruiningWimmera-Mallee’s chances at afinals bid.

Instead, Warrnambool progressedthrough to the grandfinal on percentage.

Horsham Cricket Associationsecretary Darren Chesterfieldsaid it was disappointing onlyone game could be played on thefinal two days.

‘‘It had been a really goodweek until then, we’ve had lots ofgood cricket played and a fewgood individual performances,’’he said.

‘‘But the kids all had smiles ontheir faces and they were lookinga bit tired so that means they’veprobably had a good week.’’

Mr Chesterfield said it wasgreat to see Wimmera-Mallee goundefeated after years of beingtowards the bottom of the tablein the competition.

‘‘They’ve put a lot of work intotheir junior cricket and it is goodto see some of that work pay off,’’he said.

In the Country Week grandfinal, Hamilton batted first andposted 167, while WarrnamboolBlue was not quite up to thechase, scoring 9-138 from its 45overs.

Hamilton coach Robbie Cooksaid his team had played wellthroughout the week.

‘‘We thought we had a goodside but you never know whoyou’re going to play against andhow you’re going to performagainst other teams’ best,’’ hesaid.

‘‘It was a great week undertrying conditions with the hotweather early on and then therain.’’

Cook said everyone from theteam chipped in during Friday’sfinal.

Hamilton captain and numberthree bat Daniel Kerber was thetop-scorer for Hamilton with 48runs, while Ben Annett did damagewith the ball with fourwickets for 16 runs off five overs.

Lachlan Field had a great all-roundperformance for the team,with 26 runs, a wicket and fourmaidens from nine overs for only12 runs, and a catch.

Warrnambool Blue opener Damon Cooper top-scored for histeam with 47 runs, with NickRobertson the second-highestscorer with 20.

Lewis Eldridge took threewickets and conceded 16 runsfrom five overs with the ball.

Mr Chesterfield said after thecompetition swelled to 10 teamsthis year, compared with sevenlast year, he was happy with itssize and there were no plans toexpand it.

TALGOONA Charolais stud genetics are achieving top results in the commercial market.
Nanjing Night Net

Neighbours of the stud,Lester and Kellie Noske use the Talgoona genetics andregularly top the Wagga cattle market with their Charolais-cross calves.

In fact the heifer calves have made the same amount of money as the steers.This is a major advantage of the Charolais cross that the heifers weights and cent per kilogram are above the straight British-bred heifers.

Another client Alan Geppert, topped the Wagga Market with calves making$2.07c per kilo.

This resulted in a return of $200/head more than the Angus-sired calves from the same cows sold by Mr Geppert a year earlier.

Valda Parr, is always in the top quotes when she sells her crossbred calves each year.

Chug Kennedy was exstactic with the price of his calves and couldn’t believe the extra weight in these crossbred calves.And Matt Armstrong from Marrar regularly tops the wagga market with his vealers.

Livestock agent Anthony Cummins praised the genetics saying many of the clients he represents had achieved success in the market using Charolais.

Talgoona has recently purchased a Poll bull from Rosedale Charolais Stud.

Rosedale Charolais has an excellent record for carcase quality, and the cattle have performed well in feedlot trials. Talgoona have eight-month-old calves on the ground by the Rosedale bull and they are looking very impressive.

Talgoona is a small herd that concentrateson breeding commercially-focused bulls that are moderate framed, quiet and easy doing with good muscling and excellent finishing ability.

Talgoona will have bulls for sale on January 27 to coincide with Beef Week.

RIVER tourism operators are claiming a booming summer season, despite statistics showing a downturn.
Nanjing Night Net

Statistics released by the South Australia Tourism Commission (SATC) revealed the number of visitor nights spent in the Murraylands decreased by 239,000 nights between July 2012 and June 2014.

Shadow Minister for Tourism David Ridgway said the fall in the number of night visitors was disappointing.

“Decreasing visitor nights is affecting small tourism business operators and jobs growth throughout regional South Australia,” he said.

“South Australia prides itself on its regions so it is very disappointing to see seven of our 12 tourism regions record a decrease in visitor nights.

“The loss of more than one million visitor nights in the past two years is a substantial loss of investment in our regional economies.”

Across the State, there were one million less nights spent in regional areas in the past two years according to SATC’s statistics.

Minister Ridgway criticised the State Government for neglecting regional South Australia and said regional areas would benefit from more targeted investment.

But Mannum caravan park manager Bronnie Allen said bookings had not quietened down at all.

“I disagree, I think we’ve had more people to the region and more and more new people,” she said.

“We’ve been crazy busy … our occupancy is up somewhere in the vicinity of 18 per cent.

“We’re one of those places that’s busy and popular pretty much all year round.”

In the middle of an otherwise abandoned paddock east of Braidwood (halfway between Canberra and Bateman’s Bay), a proud Croatian man in an Akubra is roasting meat for hordes of Canberrans headed to the south coast.

Robert Azbajic, the man behind the newly opened Spitshack store on Lonsdale Street in Braddon, said his countryside project on Kings Highway was a life’s ambition to create the perfect meat.

“For me, this started as a hobby and a dream and now I want to be doing this full-time for the next 20 years,” he said.

“I’ve cooked lamb and pork on a spit thousands and thousands of times in my life for someone else, but this is the first time for business.”

Despite having minimal signage and no other buildings within sight, Mr Azbajic’s meat store already has loyal support from local customers and people travelling though to the coast.

“It’s a perfect location, with a safe entry, five acres of parking plus if you want to come with a boat or trailers it’s very easy to stop and park out the front,” he said.

With plenty of empty land to spare, Mr Azbajic intends to install a jumping castle during summer for children who need a break from the long drive to the coast.

Mr Azbajic, who has lived in Canberra for the past 25 years, said he first learned from his family in Croatia how to spit-roast meat, and he had been perfecting the craft ever since.

“First of all, my meat is fresh from Moruya abattoir and has never been frozen before – it’s usually only a few days old when we cook it,” he said.

“The quality of meat in this area is better than anywhere else because salt comes into the grass from the ocean, and lamb eating salty grass makes for better quality.

“The meat is cooked for nearly four hours while paying careful attention to how quickly it is cooked – too quick and the outside will burn and lose moisture while too slow will leave it dry.”

On a busy day, the small shack, which can barely fit two people, sells more than 500 kebabsand will go through nine pork legs and two lambs.

“I use 80 per cent wood and 20 per cent charcoal when roasting the lamb and pork,” he said.

“The charcoal helps keep the temperature while the wood brings the flavour out of the meat.”

Mr Azbajic said his store was similar to the Spitshack operations in Braddon but kept to more traditional methods of cooking, with a wood fire in open spaces.

A man has died in police custody after he was believed to have been Tasered outside a McDonald’s restaurant in the NSW Southern Highlands.

Police have launched a critical incident investigation into the death of the man, thought to have been aged in his 40s, who died at Bowral police station on Sunday night.

A NSW Police spokeswoman said officers were called to the fast-food restaurant on Bowral Road in Mittagong about 8.50pm on Sunday in response to a man claiming he had been attacked.

 

Fairfax Media understands the man had walked up to the restaurant’s counter and reported that he had been assaulted outside. The man was believed to have been acting aggressively at the time, and staff called police.

The police spokeswoman said officers from the Hume Local Area Command arrived a short time later and the man “was involved in a confrontation with police”.

Police have not detailed the circumstances of that confrontation. Fairfax Media understands police used a Taser on the man during the confrontation.

However, when questioned, the police spokeswoman would not comment on whether police used a Taser.

The man died at Bowral police station a short time later, police confirmed.

“A critical incident investigation team from Cootamundra Local Area Command will now investigate all circumstances surrounding the incident,” police said in a statement.

“That investigation will be overseen by the Professional Standards Command.

“All information will be provided to the Coroner who will determine the cause of death and make any findings about the events leading up to the man’s death.”

Police are due to give a briefing on the incident on Monday morning.

Police are appealing for witnesses to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

10.31am – Victoria Country 0-30 off eight overs v SA Country at Kangaroo Flat. McNeil is on 10 and Wilson 18. Both of these teams just playing for pride now. Can’t win the title, but Vics could finish as high as second, while SA could force its way into top four.

10.30am – WA Country 1-31 off 7 overs v Qld Country. WA needs to score 250 plus to give itself a chance of securing two bonus points. Knoll is 20 not out and Joyce 6 not out. Nicholson run out by Kaden Dickfos for 3.

10.15am – We’re underway on the final day of the Australian Country Cricket Championships.

Queensland Country won the toss in the all-important clash with WA Country and elected to bowl.

That makes it extra hard for WA Country to collect the two bonus points it needs to move ahead of Queensland Country on the ladder.

Going into today’s play, QLD Country heads the ladder on 19, from WA Country on 14 and Vic Country on 13.

Victory with one bonus points would move WA Country into a tie with Qld Country.

However, that won’t be enough to secure the title. If the teams finish level the title will be decided by outright wins and Qld Country is the only team to win a game outright – versus East Asia Pacific in round one.

In other games today, Victoria Country has won the toss and decided to bat against SA Country at Kangaroo Flat, while East Asia-PAcific is batting first against NSW Country at White Hills.
