Summary: The newsletters say Asciano’s business improvements program is paying dividends – with more funds likely to be returned to shareholders in the future from the rail and ports operator. has posted solid earnings in challenging market conditions, but it’s more rocky for Bendigo and Adelaide Bank due to the low quality of its results. Amcor may be shelving plans for an acquisition in the short term, while Coca-Cola faces more challenges in its return earnings growth, analysts say.
