When David Green stands down as Director of the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) in April, after six years, it will bring to an end a period that has seen major developments for the organisation. And yet many questions still remain about its effectiveness and its future role.

Speaking to the Justice Committee last year, Green pointed to the SFO's conviction rate of almost 70% under his tenure. This, however, does not paint the full picture. The conviction rate has fallen well below this figure at times during Green's reign. Less than two years ago, the SFO failed to secure the convictions of six bankers in relation to Libor and a nine-year investigation into a boiler room operation ended with two men being acquitted and the SFO being dubbed incompetent by one of the defence teams. It has secured the Libor conviction of Tom Hayes and gained guilty verdicts for two Barclays traders in relation to Libor. But it twice failed to secure convictions against two others.

Similar to the article 2227 posted on Friday. Guess we will be revealed on Tuesday!

BP is poised to unveil a surge in annual profits this week on the back of stronger oil prices, but charges over the fatal Deepwater Horizon incident and US tax changes are set to dent the results.

Brent crude oil prices rose steadily over the second half of 2017 from a low of $46 a barrel in June. At the start of 2018, Brent hit more than $70 a barrel for the first time in about three years.

Michael Hewson, chief market analyst at CMC Markets UK, noted that BP's break-even price was $49 a barrel at its last trading update, and last quarter oil prices averaged $58 a barrel, allowing profits and revenues to show a "significant increase".

Thanks. I've downloaded the forms, just need to start filling them in. I believe it can take anything from 3/6 weeks!

t was a domino effect that no company, or its investors, ever likes to see. First came the analysts’ note, then a rush for the exit and a consequent slide in the share price. And all this for a presumably unimpressed Domino’s Pizza Group, confronted with talk of a possible waning in appetite for its wares.

Investec started the chain reaction with a “sell” rating on the FTSE 250 company, citing rising competition and discounting in the takeaway market. Down went the shares, closing 20½p off at 295p.

The chain’s main customer base of 18 to 34-year-olds was “becoming increasingly value-driven, which could limit any future upside to gross margins”, the analysts said, adding that “increasing health consciousness could put further pressure on volumes”.
They noted that the most popular pizza on Domino’s menus was the pepperoni passion, which — with 1,813 calories — covered 91 per cent of the female daily recommended intake and 73 per cent of that for men.

Initiating coverage with a target price of 271p, Investec predicted that the rise of digital competitors such as Just Eat and Deliveroo would put pressure on Domino’s like-for-like volumes. It also told clients that, while “aggressive discounting” by Pizza Hut had forced the company also to cut prices, Pizza Hut’s offering remained “significantly cheaper”.
