    A Look Into Cinemark's Debt
    Over the past three months, shares of Cinemark Hldgs (NYSE: CNK) rose by 128.79%. Before we understand the importance of debt, let us look at how much debt Cinemark Hldgs has.Cinemark Hldgs's Debt According to the Cinemark Hldgs's most recent balance sheet as reported on November 5, 2020, total debt is at $2.52 billion, with $2.50 billion in long-term debt and $24.19 million in current debt. Adjusting for $825.71 million in cash-equivalents, the company has a net debt of $1.69 billion.Let's define some of the terms we used in the paragraph above. Current debt is the portion of a company's debt which is due within 1 year, while long-term debt is the portion due in more than 1 year. Cash equivalents include cash and any liquid securities with maturity periods of 90 days or less. Total debt equals current debt plus long-term debt minus cash equivalents.To understand the degree of financial leverage a company has, investors look at the debt ratio. Considering Cinemark Hldgs's $5.80 billion in total assets, the debt-ratio is at 0.43. Generally speaking, a debt-ratio more than one means that a large portion of debt is funded by assets. As the debt-ratio increases, so the does the risk of defaulting on loans, if interest rates were to increase. Different industries have different thresholds of tolerance for debt-ratios. A debt ratio of 35% might be higher for one industry and average for another.Why Investors Look At Debt? Debt is an important factor in the capital structure of a company, and can help it attain growth. Debt usually has a relatively lower financing cost than equity, which makes it an attractive option for executives.However, interest-payment obligations can have an adverse impact on the cash-flow of the company. Having financial leverage also allows companies to use additional capital for business operations, allowing equity owners to retain excess profit, generated by the debt capital.Looking for stocks with low debt-to-equity ratios?

    Michelob Ultra Goes Greener With Aluminum in MacBooks
    (Bloomberg) -- Michelob Ultra beer is getting an upgrade: it’ll be served in cans made from the same aluminum used in Apple MacBooks.The appeal of the metal is a better carbon footprint. Beermaker Anheuser-Busch InBev NV and metal producer Rio Tinto Group said Friday that the new cans are partly made using a “carbon-free” process that eliminates greenhouse gases. The specialty metal comes from a joint venture between Rio Tinto and Alcoa Corp., called Elysis, which has counted Apple Inc. among its backers.American consumers have been demanding and paying more for food and beverages that make sustainability claims, causing many traditional brands to scramble for an edge among shoppers.The move to lower-carbon cans advances “the transition toward more sustainable packaging” and also provides traceability, Tolga Egrilmezer, Rio Tinto’s vice president of sales and marketing, said in a statement. “Responsibly produced aluminium can play key role in helping our customers deliver the sustainable products expected by today’s consumers.”The new aluminum-making process emits oxygen instead of carbon, a process that could revolutionize the industry if it’s successful at a commercial scale.More details: The Michelob Ultra cans were manufactured at Anheuser-Busch’s Metal Container Corporation facility in Jacksonville, Florida, using the Elysis aluminum cast into sheet ingots from Rio Tinto’s plant in Quebec, Canada.The companies did not provide specific volume or mix of aluminum coming from the Elysis joint-venture.Anheuser-Busch partnered with Rio Tinto in October to market the lower-carbon cans.(Corrects which products use the aluminum in first paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

    U.S. Approves Copper Mine Land Swap on Native American Land
    (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. government published a report Friday that triggers a swap involving Native American land for an area that could become North America’s largest copper mine, pushing the project into the next phase of a permitting process.The U.S. Forest Service’s final environmental impact statement finalizes a land swap at Oak Flat in Arizona for Rio Tinto Group’s Resolution Copper mine, which has received increased scrutiny from indigenous groups in recent weeks and months. The agency also published a draft record of decision indicating it will issue, pending review, permits for use of power lines, pipelines and roads in the area.Rio Tinto said in a statement following the publication that it will continue to engage with Native American tribes and seek consent before any decision on the development of the project. The company is trying to avoid repeating mistakes it made on the other side of the world.Resolution Copper’s project manager wrote to 11 Native American tribes last month, saying the company welcomed the opportunity to increase direct engagement with the groups while emphasizing that the development remains in the early stages.The outreach comes as indigenous groups are getting more vocal about the finalization of the Oak Flat land swap, less than a year after London-based Rio Tinto provoked public and investor outrage when it leveled Aboriginal heritage sites in Australia during a mine expansion. The actions led to the departure of the firm’s then-Chief Executive Officer Jean-Sebastien Jacques and two other key managers.Read more: Rio Names New CEO as Scrutiny Over Australian Blasts LingersResolution will pose a key early test for new CEO Jakob Stausholm, promoted into the role with a task to improve ties to local communities. The project may also show whether President-elect Joe Biden can both preserve the environment while speeding a transition to clean energy, which will require more copper and other metals.It’s likely the decision in the draft Record of Decision document will be made after the transfer of the Oak Flat parcel to Resolution Copper, the government said in its report.“Following the land exchange, all mineral extraction operations will take place on private land,” the document said. “In addition, Resolution Copper has indicated that it intends to place the tailings storage facility on private lands or Arizona State Trust lands.”The only decision to be made by the Forest Service concerns the proposed use of roads and land of the National Forest System for a tailings pipeline and power lines, the document said.Apache Stronghold, which represents the San Carlos Apache tribe, filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Phoenix this week seeking to stop both the land transfer and the Forest Service’s statement. A judge denied the request late Thursday.Resolution, which Rio says would be able to supply 25% of U.S. copper needs, is committed to “careful and respectful treatment” of any Native American artifacts or ancestral remains found on the property, project manager Andrew Lye said in a Dec. 23 letter seen by Bloomberg.“We will comply with all laws related to Native American cultural heritage and will strive to do more,” Lye said. “I would welcome the opportunity to discuss these commitments with you and hear your views and ideas on these and any other matters you may wish to raise as we seek to work together in a way that can provide mutual benefit for us all.”The language of the letter contrasts with the company’s disastrous handling of Western Australia’s Juukan Gorge, where blasts in May flattened natural rock shelters that showed a record of life more than 40,000 years ago. Rio faced criticism over poor communication with traditional landowners of the sites.The San Carlos Apache tribe has been one of the most vocal groups opposed to the project, with its Chairman Terry Rambler drawing comparisons between the Australian debacle and the U.S. situation.“Like the rock shelters at Juukan Gorge, Oak Flat is a sacred and holy place that Resolution Copper greedily seeks,” Rambler said last year in a letter to a committee of Australian lawmakers. “If the land transfer occurs, Resolution Copper’s block cave mine will decimate Oak Flat, swallowing it whole by massive subsidence and collapse, leaving a huge crater almost two miles across and a thousand feet deep.”Land SwapIt’s a critical point that also comes as some worry the outgoing Trump administration is attempting to push through approvals, despite the land swap being part of Congressional legislation signed by the Obama administration years ago. That law said the formal handover would not be approved until after the EIS.Rio Tinto has reiterated that the project isn’t being fast-tracked and remains in the permitting and study phase. The Biden administration will oversee permitting that must be approved in the next few years, and the company says the decision to invest in construction hasn’t been made. BHP Group, the world’s top miner, is Rio’s partner in the project.“BHP recognizes the Resolution Copper project area has historical cultural significance for Native American tribes, and their members,” BHP said in an emailed statement after the U.S. publications. “BHP funding decisions in relation to Resolution Copper will be contingent upon the project satisfying both commercial considerations and alignment with our values, policies and practices in relation to the rights of indigenous peoples.”Oak Flat will remain untouched for decades and the land swap includes area around the sacred Apache Leap, which will be protected in perpetuity, according to Rio.The vice chairman of the White Mountain Apache Tribe, Jerome Kasey III, in a November letter acknowledged its inclusion in the consultation process with the Forest Service on the Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Resolution Copper project “ensuring the inclusion of the tribal voice.”(Updates with BHP statement in third-to-last graph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

U.S. District Judge Steven Logan said in his ruling that because tribal representatives were not able to contact U.S. government attorneys on Wednesday to indicate they were filing a temporary restraining order, the court will not approve the restraining order.

    S. Africa Stocks Slip From Record as Miners Fall Most in a Month
    (Bloomberg) -- South African stocks retreated from a record as shares in miners tumbled the most in a month, with metals prices falling amid doubts regarding the approval of a U.S. stimulus package.The benchmark FTSE/JSE Africa All Share Index dropped 0.5% from Thursday’s all-time high. The gauge still narrowly eked out a third consecutive weekly gain for the first time since August after closing at record peaks on five days this month.Anglo American Plc led declines, sliding 3.4%, while global diversified mining peer BHP Group Plc dropped 2.1%. African Rainbow Minerals Ltd. was the worst performer in the local index of mining stocks, falling 5.2%. The sector gauge lost 1.5% in its sharpest descent since Dec. 18, tracking declines in European peers, which headed for their worst session since October.Some metals have been trading at multi year highs and the mining index had risen 12% in January as of Thursday’s close, boosted by investor optimism that President-elect Joe Biden’s long-awaited relief package will help economies rebound. But the focus on Friday turned to how much of the proposals, unveiled overnight, will ultimately be approved by lawmakers in Washington.Locally, traders were also digesting the latest developments in South Africa’s coronavirus response, with the government announcing that the reopening of schools will be delayed by two weeks. The country is also in the second of four days of rolling power cuts after the state-owned utility reported a malfunction at a newly built plant and other operational issues.Declining stocks outnumbered gainers by 79 to 58 in Friday’s session.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

    3D Systems stock pulls back from a near 6-year high after J.P. Morgan analyst turns bearish
    Shares of 3D Systems Corp. tumbled 11% in afternoon trading Friday, after J.P. Morgan analyst Paul Coster turned bearish on the 3D printing company, citing an "unfavorable" risk-versus-reward profile at current prices. The stock has skyrocketed more than four-fold (up 329.7%) over the past three months, to close Thursday at the highest price since April 2015, while the S&P 500 has gained 8.5%. Coster cut his rating to underweight from neutral, but raised his price target to $18, which is 37% below current levels, from $14. He said a strong rebound in the economy will raise activity levels in 3D printing, especially in the auto and aerospace markets, and in the elective surgery and dental markets once the pandemic passes, but he said that view is likely already priced into the stock. He also downgraded fellow 3D printer maker Stratasys Ltd. to underweight from neutral, and the stock fell 2.4% after closing Thursday at the highest price since July 2015.
