TOKYO–Japan’s consumer prices rose for the first time in more than a year in January as rising global oil prices gave Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and the Bank of Japan a helping hand in their campaign to overcome deflation.

The fractional increase in prices still leaves the central bank far from its 2% price goal, but it may fuel speculation over when the bank might consider raising its ultralow interest rates.

The core consumer price index rose 0.1% from a year earlier in January after falling 0.2% in the previous month, according to data released Friday by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications. The rise was the first since a 0.1% increase in December 2015.


The core index excludes fresh food but includes energy. The reading matched a forecast by economists surveyed by the Nikkei.

    Sanchez Energy’s stock has continued to run higher in 2017 and is up nearly 50% since the start of the year. Fueling that surge is the announcement that the company found an exceptional place to put its liquidity to work. In mid-January, the company unveiled a strategic partnership with a private equity giant, Blackstone Group (NYSE:BX), to acquire Anadarko Petroleum’s (NYSE:APC) Eagle Ford shale assets for $2.3 billion. Under the terms of the deal, Sanchez and Blackstone entered a 50-50 partnership to own the Anadarko assets, which consist of 155,000 net acres that currently produce 67,000 BOE/D and hold more than 4,000 drilling locations that are economic at current prices. Sanchez will finance its share of the deal with cash on hand, a new bank lending arrangement, and a preferred equity issuance to Blackstone’s credit arm.
