A vocal investor in Yahoo Inc (YHOO.O) and Viacom Inc (VIAB.O) is calling for the boards of both companies to seek outside investments from strategic partners in the vein of legendary investor Warren Buffett to help boost the value of their stocks.

In an article reviewed by Reuters that is to be published on the Internet on Thursday , New York-based SpringOwl Asset Management managing director Eric Jackson said Yahoo and Viacom would benefit from outside investment, and pointed to Goldman Sachs Group Inc's (GS.N) weathering the financial crisis after taking on a $5 billion investment from Warren Buffett in 2008.

SpringOwl holds undisclosed stakes in Yahoo and Viacom.

"Although some shareholders of both Yahoo and Viacom think that a simple sale or break-up of both companies is the best way to create value for shareholders, we believe that both companies could benefit from their own version of the "Buffett Convert," Jackson said.

Jackson said that while the stakes of investors would be diluted if an outside investor stepped in, "they would still be better off because their shares would likely get re-rated upwards substantially with this new partner sitting around the board table."

Yahoo and Viacom declined to comment.

Both Yahoo and Viacom have become targets of activist shareholders.

Yahoo has been under pressure to separate its Asian assets and auction off its core business. Its shares have fallen about 40 percent over the last year.

Viacom is the subject of a lawsuit claiming that its executive chairman, Sumner Redstone , is incapacitated.

According to Jackson, Yahoo should turn to Liberty Media Corp (LMCA.O), whose chairman John Malone is a whiz at finding tax efficiencies, or telecommunications companies Verizon (VZ.N) or AT&T (T.N), which could also bring traffic to Yahoo's properties.

For Viacom, it could benefit from investment and insight from China's Alibaba (BABA.N) , Amazon (AMZN.O) or AMC Entertainment holdings, he said. Jackson has previously suggested that Viacom consider a merger with AMC.

Jackson added that Paramount, the movie studio owned by Viacom, could become more valuable to investors if Amazon, Alibaba, Apple or Google invested.

BEIJING , May 4 (Xinhua) -- China's Ministry of Finance (MOF) said Sunday that it will issue 15 billion yuan (2.44 billion U.S. dollars) in book-entry discount treasury bonds this week.

The bonds will be sold on a discounted basis with a maturity term of 273 days, and the discount rate will be set through competitive tendering this Friday, the ministry said in a statement.

It added that the bonds will be sold on the interbank market from May 10 to 14 and will become tradable on the secondary market on May 16.

Interest calculation will start on May 12 and the maturity date will be Feb. 9, 2015.

This is the MOF's second issuance of book-entry discount treasury bonds this year.

BEIJING, April 8 (Xinhua) -- Chinese shares have fallen to levels which are well below their five-year average, and are "too cheep to ignore" , HSBC said in its latest China investment atlas.

"No matter whether it is in terms of price-to-earnings or price-to-book terms, some Chinese stocks are valued even lower than during the global financial crisis," said HSBC's Head of China Equity Strategy Steven Sun in the report.

In the past few weeks, China has been producing a series of tepid macro economic data, and has had no shortage of bad news. The onshore bond market may soon witness its first bond default in recent history, while the Chinese currency Renminbi has fallen to the lowest level in a year.

The HSBCMarkit manufacturing purchasing managers' index (PMI) , which sampled small- and medium-sized enterprises, dipped to an eight-month low of 48 in March, from a final reading of 48.5 in February. It also signaled the sharpest fall of output since November 2011.

Although the timing of a stock market bottom is difficult to call, downside risks have been alleviated by the depressed valuation, Sun said.

Against the rest of the region, China also offers clear value. In terms of price-to-earnings multiples , the discount that Chinese equities trade at is the widest it has been since 2007, he said.

The market hopes that policy makers in China take fresh steps to boost the country's flagging economy.

"We think a rally might be underway due to the cheap valuations, but this is more likely to be a short-term rebound than a new cyclical bull market," Sun said. "We maintain our cautious stance on 2014 stock market performance, given the structural challenges that China needs to overcome."

Sun said most of HSBC's 2014 index target forecasts are unchanged, with Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) China at 68 and Hang Seng Index at 24 ,000.

But HSBC slightly lowers Shanghai Composite Index to 2,400 from 2,500 and the Hushen 300 Index of the leading Shanghai and Shenzhen A-share listings to 2,600 from 2,800.

These targets imply potential returns of 11 percent to 24 percent by the end of next year, including dividend yield. Potential return equals the percentage difference between the current index level and target level , including forecast dividend yields when indicated, Sun said.

On Tuesday, the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index opened lower at 2,054.53 points, down 0.21 percent. The Hushen 300 Index opened at 2,179.92 points , down 0.25 percent.
