The Green Dollar

Suggestions from the public & consequences

– Outright ban of plastic bags and styrofoam boxes: extinction of suppliers, loss of jobs

– Ban of energy inefficient appliances: Time frame required for phase out of appropriate appliances while others have yet to have energy efficient alternatives

– Grants for low-income families to adopt greener technologies: personal view is there can be more that can be done besides giving grants all the time

Blackrock: Profile

Blackrock is focused on companies that

1. have individual stock specific catalysts to release additional value

2. benefit the most from an improvement in the macro environment, through either higher oil prices or increased industry capital expenditure.

3. oil services

(Backdrop of oil price driven earnings revisions is a positive one, there are many company-specific factors to highlight even in flat price environemnt. Companies that are low-cost producrs and have strong resource positions, and high impact exploration programmes that are attracting value.)

Robin Batchelor, MD, portfolio manager and joint chief investment officer of blackrock's natural resources equity team, or Poppy Allanby: fund manager of Blackrock's natural resources equity team.
