While it may be true that ENRC may be worth more as a privately held company than as a listed concern minority owners deserve more than the 260p per share offered by the group's founding oligarchs and the Kazakh government, which amounts to daylight robbery, the FT's Lex column muses.

A strong dollar and outperforming equity markets have shifted investor’s attention to more risky assets with silver suffering.
Despite general US data thus far this week coming in a little softer, the dollar retains a bid tone, as US risk markets keep on posting new highs despite much speculation on whether USD may have rallied a little too far, too quickly.
Today we await CPI numbers and US data including housing, jobless claims and the Philly Fed.)
The depreciation of the Japanese yen has been an ongoing process for many months now, and recent developments have contributed to its continued decline. However, upcoming data might change the direction upwards.

Despite the fact that it’s only mid- May, the FTSE100 looks set to record a new high for the 12th consecutive month.
Compared to the likes of the Dow, the Dax and the S&P500, the FTSE being quite heavily weighted with the financial and mining sector has dragged itsheels in re-acquiring a record high level. Perhaps it’s the mining sector that is serving as a drag which since February has seen a total decline of almost 25%.
The fine wine market is expected to continue its recent resurgence in 2013 and, if you haven’t thought about investing in this asset class before there are increasingly strong reasons for certain types of investor.
