United Airlines pilots overwhelmingly voted against a tentative contract, the union representing the workers said on Tuesday, saying the proposal fell short of what members were seeking.
The Air Line Pilots Association said 94% of the nearly 10,000 pilots voted to reject the contract offer and said pilots would immediately begin a series of pickets.
The tentative agreement, announced in June, offered more than 14.5% cumulative pay increases and enhanced overtime and training pay. However, some pilots were not happy with the deal, prompting the union to renegotiate its terms.
The development comes one day after Delta Air Lines pilots voted to authorize a strike.
99% of Delta pilots voting cast ballots in favor of a strike authorization.

Mondelez International Inc raised its full-year sales and profit forecasts on Tuesday, betting that consumers would continue to purchase its chocolates and biscuits despite higher prices.
While surging inflation and fears of a recession have dampened consumer spending, shoppers still seem willing to indulge on “affordable luxuries” such as their favorite snacks and beverages instead of switching to cheaper brands.

The Oreo maker said it now expects 2022 organic net revenue to increase more than 10%, compared with its prior estimate for a more than 8% jump.
It forecast 2022 adjusted profit to grow over 10%, on a constant-currency basis, compared with its previous expectation for mid-to-high single-digit growth.

The vacation rental firm expects fourth-quarter revenue between $1.80 billion and $1.88 billion, the midpoint of which missed analysts’ expectations of $1.85 billion, according to Refinitiv IBES.

However, quarterly loss came in at $1.2 billion, hurt by Uber’s equity investments.
Monthly active users on Uber’s apps rose 14%, exceeding the levels seen in September 2019, helped by airport trips, while revenue from the rideshare segment rose 73% in the third quarter.

Kuwait’s Haitham Al Ghais, Secretary-General of OPEC speaks during the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, Oct. 31, 2022. (Reuters/Amr Alfiky)

The world must act swiftly to invest in oil to prevent future energy emergencies as global demand for the hydrocarbon grows in the long term, OPEC Secretary General Haitham Al Ghais said on Tuesday.
“If we don’t get it right this time we are sowing the seeds for future energy crises — not just one, but multiple,” he told Reuters in an interview.
He was speaking a day after the organization released its 2022 World Oil Outlook which estimated that $12.1 trillion were needed in investments to meet rising oil demand in the long term.
Of the total, $9.5 trillion would be for exploration and production, or upstream, investments, he said.
The OPEC forecast, which saw demand for oil plateau by 2035, put demand at 109.8 million barrels per day by 2045.
Oil prices rose on Tuesday, recouping losses from the previous session, as a weaker U.S. dollar offset widening COVID-19 curbs in China that have stoked fears of slowing fuel demand in the world’s second-largest oil consumer.
U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude rose $1.63, or 1.88%, to $88.16 at 1429 GMT after falling 1.6% in the previous session.

BP sign outside a gas station in central London, Britain, Aug. 2, 2022. (Reuters/Henry Nicholls)


BP more than doubled its third-quarter profit from a year earlier to $8.15 billion and expanded its share buybacks by $2.5 billion, joining rivals in reporting bumper profits that have sparked renewed calls for energy companies to pay more taxes.
Shares traded flat.
Sales and other operating revenue came in at $55 billion, lower than last year’s total of $67.9 billion, reflecting lower sales in gas and low carbon and also the customers and products division.
“BP continues to enjoy exceptional cash flows, helped in no small part from high prices in fossil fuels. It notes supply cuts by OPEC+, together with ongoing uncertainty about Russian oil exports as factors that are keeping prices elevated.
However, we are seeing some signs that these prices are starting to dent consumption by end users. BP is deploying its cashflows wisely by investing in strategic initiatives such as Cypre, BP’s third subsea gas development in Trinidad and Tobago,” wrote Derren Nathan, Head of Equity Research at Hargreaves Lansdown.
London-based BP joins rivals including Shell, Exxon Mobil and TotalEnergies which also reported bumper profits last week that also saw the sector pay out a record $29 billion to shareholders.
President Joe Biden on Monday called on major oil companies who are bringing in big profits to stop “war profiteering”, threatening to hit them with higher taxes if they don’t increase production.
BP, which increased its dividend by 10% in the quarter, will buy back $2.5 billion of shares after repurchasing $7.6 billion so far this year. BP has committed to using 60% of its excess cashflow for shareholder returns.

Ocado, the British online supermarket and technology group, has entered South Korea, one of the most mature e-commerce markets in the world, through a partnership deal with Lotte Shopping, the companies said Tuesday.
Lotte becomes Ocado’s 12th partner across 10 countries.
Six CFCs are planned by 2028, with the first scheduled to go live in 2025. Ocado’s in-store fulfillment technology will also be rolled out across Lotte stores from 2024.
“This is welcome news for a group that’s been struggling to drum up tangible deals for the Solutions businesses,” said Matt Britzman, equity analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown.
Ocado Group announced an exclusive US partnership with Kroger — America’s largest grocery retailer — in May 2018, and an initial commitment to build capacity equivalent to 20 CFCs across the US.
In 2020, the partnership was extended to also include Ocado Group’s in-store fulfilment solution (ISF), which was scheduled to be rolled out across Kroger stores from 2021 to support curbside pickup.

Gasoline prices nationwide in the US fell early Tuesday while diesel prices experienced a slight rise overnight. (

The nationwide price for a gallon of gasoline fell early Tuesday, one day after a temporary uptick.

US stocks edged higher early Tuesday as investors wait for word from the Federal Reserve about interest rate action. (Getty Images)


U.S. stocks edged higher early Tuesday morning as investors awaited word from the Federal Reserve on possible interest rate hikes by as much as 75 percentage points. 
The widespread expectation is for it to push through another increase that’s triple the usual size at 0.75 percentage points.
Wall Street is roughly split on whether it will do the same in December or shift to a smaller increase, according to CME Group. 
The benchmark S&P 500 index closed down 0.7% at 3,871.98. That gave it an 8% gain for October, but the index still is down 18.8% from its Jan. 3 peak. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 0.4% to 32,732.95. It ended the month up 14%. 
A market pullback in August and September, plus better quarterly earnings than expected at many companies, helped put investors in a buying mood. That was helped by optimism that the Federal Reserve might be ready to ease up on the aggressive pace of interest rate hikes as it tries to squash inflation. 
Stocks gained ground throughout October as investors shifted focus to the latest round of corporate earnings. More than half of the companies within the S&P 500 have reported results and shown overall earnings growth of 2.3%, according to FactSet. 
Companies have so far given investors a mixed bag of results and forecasts as Wall Street tries to get a better picture of the economy. Inflation is stubbornly hot. The Fed has been trying to rein that in by raising interest rates to slow economic activity. Investors worry that might send the economy into a recession. 
Meanwhile, Hong Kong stocks jumped more than 5% and other Asian markets also rose and a survey showed Chinese manufacturing improved. The Hang Seng index in Hong Kong surged 5.1% to 15,441.77 and the Shanghai Composite Index gained 2% to 2,940.75.
The Nikkei 225 in Tokyo added 0.3% to 27,678.92. The Kospi in Seoul jumped 1.8% to 2,335.22 and Sydney’s S&P-ASX 200 gained 1.6% to 6,976.90. India’s Sensex opened up 0.6% at 61.124.72. New Zealand declined while Southeast Asian markets advanced.

Oil prices were higher by more than 1% early Tuesday morning as a weaker dollar and Chinese COVID restrictions affected the commodity. (Getty Images)


Oil prices rose more than 1% on Tuesday, paring losses from the previous session, as a weaker U.S. dollar offset widening COVID-19 curbs in China that have stoked fears of slowing fuel demand in the world’s second-largest oil consumer. 
Brent crude for January delivery rose $1.53, or 1.7%, to $94.34 per barrel at 0718 GMT. The December contract expired on Monday at $94.83 a barrel, down 1%. 
U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude rose $1.38, or 1.6%, to $87.91 a barrel, after falling 1.6% in the previous session. 
The Brent and WTI benchmarks both ended October higher, posting their first monthly gains since May, after the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and allies including Russia said they would cut output by 2 million barrels per day (bpd). 
“Oil prices cut early losses as the U.S. dollar weakened, with the major global equity markets rising in today’s Asian session ahead of the U.S. Federal Reserve’s rate decision later this week,” CMC Markets analyst Tina Teng said. 
The greenback sank on Tuesday from a one-week high against a basket of major peers, as traders weighed the odds of a less aggressive Federal Reserve at Wednesday’s monetary policy meeting. 
A weaker dollar makes oil cheaper for holders of other currencies and usually reflects greater investor appetite for risk. 
“OPEC+’s upcoming oil output cuts and the U.S.’s record oil export data also support oil prices fundamentally,” Teng said. 
OPEC raised its forecasts for world oil demand in the medium-and longer-term on Monday, saying that $12.1 trillion of investment is needed to meet this demand despite the transition to renewable energy sources.
COVID-19 curbs in China forced the temporary closure of Disney’s Shanghai resort on Monday and have spurred worries of lower fuel demand in the world’s top crude oil importer as it persists with its zero-COVID policy. 
Strict pandemic restrictions have caused China’s factory activity to fall in October and cut into its imports from Japan and South Korea.
Keeping a check on oil prices, though, U.S. oil output climbed to nearly 12 million bpd in August, the highest since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, even as shale companies said they do not expect production to accelerate in coming months. T
hat is likely to lead to a rise in U.S. crude oil stocks in the week to Oct. 28 of about 300,000 barrels, a preliminary Reuters poll showed, while distillate and gasoline inventories were expected to fall. The poll was conducted ahead of reports from the American Petroleum Institute due at 4:30 p.m. EDT (2030 GMT) on Tuesday, and the Energy Information Administration due at 10:30 a.m. (1430 GMT) on Wednesday.
