ING’s Peter Vanden Houte says tightening monetary policy is “at odds” with bond purchases because higher rates will push investors into other asset classes, raising yields on bonds and further eroding the value of the ECB’s considerable stock of bonds. “Increases in official interest rates would likely push up peripheral bond yields further, thereby saddling the ECB’s balance sheet with additional capital losses,” he says.The Bank is therefore likely to push hard for the Eurozone’s bailout fund to take over bond purchases. “The ECB is probably thinking it has done enough to appease the tensions within the monetary union,” says Vanden Houte. The ECB has been buying sovereign bonds on the secondary market in peripheral Eurozone countries in order to bring their yields down. An end to its interventions would turn up the pressure on the region’s leaders to come up with a solution to the debt crisis.

Genting Singapore looks to locals in recovery plan

first_imgWhile its Universal Studios Singapore theme part and S.E.A. Aquarium – both part of Resorts World Sentosa – were able to reopen from 1 July, Genting said it continued to experience weak demand.  Email Address It will also continue with plans for a SGD$4.5bn “mega expansion” of the resort, through which it aims to consolidate the property’s position as Singapore’s leading leisure and tourism destination.  Genting Singapore, a subsidiary of the Malaysian conglomerate, is looking to attract local trade to its integrated resort as novel coronavirus (Covid-19) continues to limit international visitation to the property.

Black Friday is upon us again. Each year, the shopping extravaganza seems to get bigger and louder. Shoppers search out the biggest bargains. Retailers report huge demand. It seems like there must be some well performing Black Friday shares.But what Black Friday winners might make good shares?5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Why busy shops aren’t always good for retailersInstore and online, Black Friday is increasingly one of the busiest days of the calendar for retailers. With heavy advertising and deep promotions, the tills should be ringing frequently. It is also an opportunity to acquire new customers.But actually that isn’t necessarily good for retailers. After all, discounts cut into their profit margins. Some of the sales are clearly at a loss. On top of that, after customers load up on cheap buys on Black Friday, there is less need for them to shop again any time soon. So, when I look at Black Friday shares, I ask myself which retailers are managing to build long-term, profitable relationships with shoppers. I think that will be a more rewarding commercial strategy than a one-off “pile them high, sell ‘em cheap” approach.So when it comes to Black Friday, I don’t see any extra value in shares in the big retailers like Tesco or Morrison’s. Instead, I look for companies who benefit from a shopping surge without cutting prices.Black Friday shares I would consider buyingOne such set of Black Friday winners is the logistics companies who handle the shipping of products bought online. They aren’t discounting to get shoppers to buy their products. Instead, they are making money on every item shipped as orders fly out the door. Such a company is Clipper Logistics. It has growing operations in Germany but its main market is the UK. Its deep, multi-year relationships with clients such as Zara and ASOS means that Black Friday likely produces a sales boon. Last year, e-commerce fulfilment grew at 18%.Another group of Black Friday winners are media companies who derive revenue from the flurry of additional advertising companies place around Black Friday. For example, Daily Mail has a sizeable online business. Last year, the company’s iconic Mail Online website recorded a 17% increase in revenue from digital ads. Online advertising for events such as Black Friday looks set to grow year after year, in my opinion.Finally I would also consider as Black Friday shares retailers that can benefit from the general surge in buying without getting into deep discounting itself. I think Games Workshop fits that description well. Its customers are motivated by its unique range of products, not by cheap pricing. They often get deeply engaged with gaming products. That means the company can benefit from years or even decades of repeat custom, not just a one-off bargain buy.Black Friday offers bargains in store – but also in the stock market. It is a good time to find out more about the sorts of companies that do well from it. Beyond the biggest retailers, there are some names I find attractive. Now I need to go shopping!

Zee Ngwenya’s great try saving tackles against Leinster

first_imgThursday May 2, 2013 Zee Ngwenya’s great try saving tackles against Leinster Earlier this week we featured a great try saving tackle from Tim Nanai-Williams, but he wasn’t the only one putting in a massive effort at the weekend. Zee Ngwenya, the USA Eagles and Biarritz flyer, made two great tackles during defeat to Leinster at the RDS. The Irish powerhouses reached the Amlin Challenge Cup final with a convincing 44-16 victory, booking themselves a meeting with Stade Francais in the final in Dublin on May 17th.Zee Ngwenya, the speedster who first came to prominence at the 2007 Rugby World Cup, made two great try-saving tackles during the match, first on Sexton as he chased back and got under the ball to prevent a try, and then on Ian Madigan.Madigan intecepted and ran the eighty odd metres before being brought down just five out.As with Nanai-Williams, Ngwenya was penalised however, and received a yellow card that swung things truly in Leinster’s favour. They went on to score five tries in total.It was a game that produced few chances for the Zimbabwean born winger, but it was good to see such a great effort from a player that is not only lightning fast, but clearly always committed too.Highlights: You can view longer highlights from the match on page two hereFull highlights of Leinster vs Biarritz in the Amlin Challenge Cup Semi Final at the RDS(excuse the poor quality) Time: 11:51Credit: leinsterrugbytvADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Góes case prompts call for decriminalization

first_img Reports Receive email alerts BrazilAmericas Organisation BrazilAmericas Reporters Without Borders hopes that, in a decision due shortly, Brazil’s Federal Supreme Court will overturn journalist José Cristian Góes’ criminal defamation conviction over a fictional tale about political corruption that he posted on his blog in May 2012, for which he received an initial jail sentence.Góes was sentenced on 4 July 2013 to seven months and 16 days in prison – a sentence that was immediately commuted to community service. He was also ordered to pay 25,000 reais (7,200 euros) in damages and 5,000 reais (1,440 euros) in costs.Entitled “Me, the colonel in me,” the story criticized the clientelist methods used by those in positions of power and influence at the local level in Brazil, where they are known as “colonels.” The story was told in the first person by an imaginary “colonel” who complained about the current democracy. No names, dates, places or public positions were identified.Edson Ulisses, the vice-president of the high court in Aracaju, the capital of the northeastern state of Sergipe, nonetheless bought civil and criminal proceedings against Góes, claiming that story was insulting.“Sentencing José Cristian Góes to a jail term in 2013, even if it was commuted to community service, was a slap in the face for freedom of information and opinion,” said Claire San Filippo, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk.“We hope that the Federal Supreme Court will now correct this aberration and send an encouraging signal to Brazil’s journalists. We also urge the Brazilian authorities to decriminalize media offenses, because the possibility of criminal charges has a strong deterrent impact on freedom of information.”Ever since the repeal in 2009 of a 1967 media law inherited from the military dictatorship, journalists have often been the victims of abusive judicial proceedings on charges of insult or defamation, especially at the local level. Courts are also showing a growing readiness to use preventive censorship, especially against websites.Brazil is ranked 99th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. to go further Follow the news on Brazil News May 13, 2021 Find out more Newscenter_img RSF_en Alarm after two journalists murdered in Brazil 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Help by sharing this information March 23, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Góes case prompts call for decriminalization April 27, 2021 Find out more News April 15, 2021 Find out more RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin Americalast_img read more
