Global trucking demand is on the rise with the consistent increase in capacity, need for faster transfer influenced by economic developments, new business ventures, and changing buying patterns. However, the trucking industry in general is plagued by concerns like driver shortage, vehicle price increases, fuel price volatility, road safety, and performance limitations amidst rapidly transformative freight handling, stocking, and distribution practices as well as infrastructure changes. Trucking, however, has remained conventional in general. Digitalization and the advent of technology have helped identify gaps and harness efficiency to the best.

Autonomous trucks are viewed as the next logical leap to overcome existing bottlenecks and to keep pace with the rapidly evolving ecosystem. The COVID-19 pandemic has underlined the need for autonomous trucks and their effectiveness during emergencies. With this pandemic, the industry faces issues such as driver shortage and severe commodity demand triggered by panic shopping. Autonomous vehicles (AVs) offer a solution to both the aforementioned with the capability of driving longer hours and safely. Logistics and shipping operators have been provided with a strong case to include self-driving trucks in their fleet as the means of a response action plan in the event of unforeseen emergencies.

Unlike humans with the limitation of operating hours, systems can operate trucks 24×7 effectively, increasing commodity flow within the freight value system. Perception and visual systems can acts as additional eyes to the driver, while analytics and predictive algorithms enhance attentiveness, thus helping the driver traverse through unforeseen events. Cost effectiveness of autonomous trucks will aid fleet operators achieve faster return on investment (RoI) and help address freight supply pressure.

Although the technology required to make trucks completely autonomous without drivers is still very nascent, the achieved capabilities have a variety of application scope. Features such as Advanced Emergency Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Change Assist, and Reverse Assist are the first steps towards achieving a working package in the near future, while individually acting as safety and driver assist functions.

On the basis of SAE classification of the levels of autonomy, the industry is already well accustomed to absorb Level 1 and Level 2 technologies. The Level 1 feature is already predominant in the medium and heavy commercial vehicle (MHCV) segment with an estimated penetration of 45%, which is expected to grow exponentially, driven by regulatory stimulus, and reach 70% by 2020. All trucks are expected to possess at least Level 1 capability by 2030. Widespread launch and commercialization of the Level 2 feature is expected starting 2020, with its penetration forecast to reach 72% by 2040. OEMs are expected to skip Level 3 autonomy due to its similarity in terms of technology, functionality, and incremental costs with Level 4.

Achieving Level 4 trucking capability will be a major milestone that will enable trucks to operate without human intervention at any stage. Although deployment is still distant, Level 4 is the major focal point for manufacturers and start-ups, with several pilot runs and trials already in progress. Level 4 trucks are expected to be commercialized by 2025 and contribute to ~6.4% of the total general freight tonnage carried annually in the United States by 2040, which will lead to savings of ~$4.75 billion on the annual freight bill.

North America and Europe are leading the global autonomous truck transition with many industry stakeholders based out of or testing vehicles in these regions. Cross-brand platooning trials were conducted in European test beds to understand the applicability scope of the technology. Many cities are upgrading their underlying infrastructure to enable V2V and V2X transmissions needed for trucks to operate autonomously. Government-funded initiatives with collaborative efforts from multiple and diverse industry participants are being done to fast-track the development of autonomous trucks.

Liability remains one of the most significant hurdles for autonomous driving. Regulations remain rudiment and not exhaustive in terms of functional requirements and are very conservative with respect to deployment on public roads. In effect, they mandate a certain level of safety features to be a requirement for the sale and registration of trucks. Industry stakeholders need to be provided with a comprehensive framework and guidance plan to explore, take next steps, and invest suitably in relevant development areas.

Incumbent OEMs such as Daimler, Volvo, Paccar, Scania, and MAN are spearheading the transition with development already having reached the testing phases. Level 1 and Level 2 features are being offered both as standard and optional based on regional preferences. Start-ups such as Peloton Technology, TuSimple, Embark Trucks, and Waymo have taken noticeable steps to potentially capture market in large volumes. Technology and algorithm providers are key players in development of technology; hence OEMs are acquiring and engaging in partnerships and alliances to leverage domain expertise and to keep pace with the transition.

Vikings suggested as team who could trade for speedy Bengals receiver

Vikings suggested as team who could trade for speedy Bengals receiver

Back in March, the Minnesota Vikings made a gigantic decision to trade Stefon Diggs to the Buffalo Bills. Diggs had developed into one of the NFL’s best receivers during his five years with the Vikings, but the deteriorating relationship between the pass-catcher and Minnesota reached a point where a change needed to be made.

In exchange for Diggs, the Vikings received the Bills’ first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. That selection was then used by Minnesota to add former LSU receiver Justin Jefferson to the roster and the rookie pass-catcher has been playing outstanding so far this season.

With Jefferson and Adam Thielen, the Vikings still have one of the best receiving duos in the league despite the departure of Diggs. But should Minnesota look to add another weapon for their passing attack before this year’s trade deadline?

On Tuesday, it was revealed that Cincinnati Bengals receiver John Ross has reportedly requested a trade according to NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo. Ross was selected with the No. 9 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft by the Bengals, but his time in Cincinnati hasn’t gone very well.

Ross has only appeared in 50 percent of the Bengals games since 2017 and he’s never finished a season with more than 28 catches or 510 receiving yards. During Cincinnati’s most recent matchup against the Indianapolis Colts, the 25-year-old receiver was on the field for a grand total of one snap.

In 2017, Ross was regarded as one of the top receiving prospects after an impressive 2016 campaign at Washington that saw him catch 81 passes for 1,150 yards and 17 touchdowns. Then when he ran his 40-yard dash at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine in 4.22 seconds, his draft stock skyrocketed.

So with the report of Ross wanting the Bengals to trade him, there’s already been speculation about where he could land if he’s dealt before this year’s deadline. Surprisingly, there’s someone who believes the Vikings could potentially end up as the new home for the current Cincinnati receiver.

CBS Sports’ Bryan DeArdo recently listed seven teams who could trade for Ross and Minnesota was included in the group. DeArdo thinks that Ross could take on the role as the Vikings’ No. 3 receiver behind Jefferson and Thielen.

“After trading away Stefon Diggs this past offseason, Minnesota’s passing game has yet to find a third reliable option behind Adam Thielen (32 catches, 415 yards, and seven touchdowns) and rookie Justin Jefferson (28 catches, 537 yards, and three touchdowns).

Tight ends Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith have just 20 catches between them thus far, while receiver Bisi Johnson has just five catches for 93 yards through six games. The addition of Ross could make things easier for quarterback Kirk Cousins, who has thrown a league-high 10 interceptions through six games.”

Kirk Cousins has been playing poorly this year, but adding another receiver to the mix doesn’t seem like it would be the answer to his problems. Cousins is still slowly gaining trust in other receivers not named Adam Thielen and giving up assets to acquire someone like Ross doesn’t seem like it would be the best decision for Minnesota to make.

If the Vikings could add the Bengals receiver in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick, then maybe they would make a deal. But giving up anything more than that feels like too much to acquire someone like Ross who, in four seasons, only has 196 more career receiving yards than Jefferson.

Minnesota might make a trade or two before this year’s deadline, but it shouldn’t be one that adds another pass-catcher to their roster. They’ve got plenty of other more important needs right now than finding a No. 3 receiver.

Trade ideas thread - European session 21 October 2020

Trade ideas thread – European session 21 October 2020

WCRS 21-10

Asian equities are generally higher, though Chinese stocks are dragged lower by property shares for the most part. But US futures are sitting more optimistic and that is fueling better risk sentiment so far on the day.

Treasury yields are also marked higher with 10-year yields hinting at a breakout, trading up 4 bps to 0.83% – the highest level since early June.

That does throw some questions about the reflation trade and what the market is anticipating amid continued stimulus talks and how election odds are being priced in.

Back to the dollar, it is being stretched technically with EUR/USD now at a one-month high near 1.1850 on a break above the 9 October high @ 1.1831.

There is some resistance from the 61.8 retracement level of the swing move lower from 1.2011 to 1.1612 @ 1.1859 but there is little else in the way stopping a push towards the late September highs around 1.1890-17 next.

Meanwhile, GBP/USD is looking to try and keep above its 200-hour moving average @ 1.2973 but the daily trendline resistance – now @ 1.2993 – and the 1.3000 handle still poses some key challenges for buyers as the Brexit standoff continues this week.

Elsewhere, AUD/USD is looking to make some positive progress as it moves towards its 100-hour moving average @ 0.7077 and NZD/USD likewise trying to keep above its own 100-hour moving average @ 0.6602.

On the latter, keeping above the 100-day moving average @ 0.6587 will also be a key challenge ahead of the close later today.

Other than that, GBP/JPY continues to see price action more trapped around its key daily moving averages @ 136.32-53 for the most part while EUR/JPY is continuing to push towards some short-term resistance closer towards 125.00.

And amid the possible reflation trade narrative in bonds, gold is also aiming for a topside breakout with price trading up 0.6% to $1,918 to start the day.

A New Marijuana REIT Rival for Innovative Industrial Properties Is Coming to the Market

A New Marijuana REIT Rival for Innovative Industrial Properties Is Coming to the Market

Since its debut on the stock market in late 2017, Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR) has been the only publicly traded cannabis-focused real estate investment trust (REIT). But in the near future, a new kid will arrive on the block.

Like Innovative, this company will concentrate solely on the grow spaces, processing facilities, retail stores, and other real estate required by the marijuana industry.

The new kid — just what name it will go by remains something of a question mark — will come to the public market via a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) now called Subversive Real Estate Acquisition REIT (OTC:SBVR.F).

In a move that has become trendy in finance lately, an existing company — in this case, Inception REIT  — will park itself within Subversive in a nearly $183 million “qualifying transaction” that will merge the two. This maneuver is essentially a backdoor initial public offering that should be completed next Friday, Oct. 30.

The resulting company will be significantly smaller than Innovative. At the moment, Subversive’s portfolio consists of 12 properties under binding agreements and five first-lien loans; these are located in nine U.S. states, chiefly California. According to the SPAC, this real estate is worth $201 million.

Inception REIT, meanwhile, holds three properties and one mortgage to a retail store, all located in southern California.

By comparison, as of Sept. 21, Innovative had 63 properties in a portfolio. Its real estate assets totaled more than $815 million at the end of its most recently reported quarter.

Similarly to Innovative, the new company will concentrate on sale-leaseback transactions. Such deals are popular with cannabis companies because they unlock capital that operators in the cash-strapped and frequently money-losing marijuana industry sorely need.

The growth of the late stage chronic kidney disease drugs market is mainly attributed to the factors such as high prevalence of diseases leading to chronic kidney diseases and favorable reimbursement policy for the late stage chronic kidney disease drugs. However, delay in the diagnosis of chronic kidney disease is expected to hamper the growth of the market up to certain extent during the forecast period.

Late-stage renal disease, also called end-stage kidney disease, occurs when chronic kidney disease (the gradual loss of kidney function) reaches an advanced state.In end-stage renal disease, kidneys are no longer able to work as they should to meet the body’s needs.

At this advanced stage, the kidney loses its ability to function effectively, and eventually dialysis or a kidney transplant is needed to save the life.

At present, there is no cure for chronic kidney disease, and treatment involves the managing of the disease.Blood pressure medications, such as angiotensin receptor blockers or angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, are frequently prescribed to control hypertension, and expectantly, to slowdown the progression of chronic kidney disease.

Therefore, the manufacturers in the market are focusing on adopting strategies such as product launches and approvals, R&D investments, government funding, and partnerships to develop new drugs and provide easy access for the patients worldwide.
Some of the manufactures are mentioned below:

• DiaMedica Drugs

On February 14, 2019 DiaMedica Drugs Inc, a clinical-stage biotechnology company, announced that it has initiated dosing patients with chronic kidney disease in a Phase Ib clinical study evaluating DM199. The course is conducted in the U.S., is a multi-center, open-label clinical trial to assess the tolerability, safety, and pharmacokinetics of three dose levels of DM199 in 32 patients with moderate and severe CKD. This study will help determine the dose levels required to restore normal KLK1 protein levels in patients with CKD and provide extra insights about the specific CKD patient populations that may benefit most from DM199 treatment and guide the upcoming design Phase II studies.
• Cara Drugs, Inc.

Cara Drugs, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing new chemical entities designed to improve pruritus and pain by selectively targeting peripheral kappa opioid receptors, on July 2017 announced that it had dosed the first patient in its Phase 1 pharmacokinetic and safety trial of Oral CR845 tablets in patients with stage III-V chronic kidney disease (CKD) who are not on dialysis.
• Akebia Drugs

Akebia Drugs, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company engaged in the development of the with the purpose to better the lives of people impacted by kidney disease, on June 2020 announced the first regulatory approval of vadadustat, its oral hypoxia-inducible factor prolyl hydroxylase inhibitor (HIF-PHI), for the treatment of anemia due to chronic kidney disease (CKD). Moreover, Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation, Akebia’s collaboration partner in Japan for vadadustat, has received manufacturing and marketing approval of vadadustat as a treatment for anemia due to CKD in both dialysis-dependent and non-dialysis dependent adult patients by the Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare in Japan. Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation will market Vadadustat in Japan under the trade name VAFSEO.

Based on product type, the market is segmented into calcimimetics, vitamin D, potassium binders, calcium-based phosphate binders, and others.
