3 Top Picks From The Thriving Waste Management Industry

It doesn’t matter that we are amid a pandemic that is unlikely to dissipate any time soon, we cannot stop producing waste. The waste management industry is, thus, in a good shape, witnessing a relative shift of waste production from industry and commercial centers to medical centers and residential areas.

The coronavirus pandemic has strongly necessitated the proper disposal of trash. Hence, waste management companies are at an advantage as there has been a substantial increase in residential waste with the rise in the work-from-home trend and travel restrictions. Medical waste, too, has increased due to the rising usage of masks, gloves, suits and syringes.

Increasing population and urbanization are key drivers of the industry, as these prompt a significant rise in garbage and recycling. Also, decline in places to store or dump garbage, with the landfills being filled and closed, is considerably fueling the need to manage waste. Environmental

Exclusive: U.S. Shale Producer Devon in Talks to Acquire Peer WPX | Top News

NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. shale producer Devon Energy Corp is in talks to acquire rival WPX Energy Inc in an all-stock transaction that would create a company worth around $6 billion, people familiar with the matter said on Saturday.

The deal talks show how consolidation in the oil and gas industry is picking up, as low energy prices drive some independent producers to seek scale through mergers. In July, Noble Energy Inc agreed to be acquired by Chevron Corp for $5 billion in stock.

The deal, which would value Tulsa, Oklahoma-based WPX at a small premium to its current share price, could be announced as soon as next week, according to one of the sources.

The sources, who requested anonymity to discuss the private talks, cautioned that an agreement was not guaranteed.

Devon and WPX did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Job openings top expectations even as rate of hiring slows

Job openings rose 10% in July to a pandemic high even though the rate of hiring saw a sharp slump, according to a Labor Department report Wednesday.

The total for available positions hit 6.6 million for the month, above the 6 million expected from economists surveyed by FactSet. The estimate effectively would have been no change from the June total for the government’s Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, which runs a month behind the department’s nonfarm payrolls count.

The openings rate increased from 4.2% to 4.5%, just below the 4.6% level from a year ago.

While job openings surged, the actual hires tumbled from just shy of 7 million in June to 5.8 million in July, a decline of about 17%. The hiring rate as a share of the workforce fell from 5.1% to 4.1%. Though that was a considerable decline, it was just ahead of the 4% level
