It has sold more than 5m units since its June launch. Samsung is also launching its Galaxy Tab tablet computer, seen by analysts as the strongest rival to Apple’s iPad so far.In June Samsung reported record quarterly profits thanks to an increase in sales of smartphones and memory chips.The South Korea-based company expects consolidated operating profit of between 4.6 trillion won and 5 trillion won (£2.6bn to £2.8bn) for the three months ended 30 September. That would be higher than the 4.22 trillion won recorded in the third quarter last year but less than the 5.01 trillion won racked up in the second quarter of 2010. Samsung estimated consolidated sales of between 39 trillion won and 41 trillion won for the third quarter. whatsapp Thursday 7 October 2010 7:31 pm center_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times KCS-content Samsung hit by downturn in TV sales Share Tags: NULLlast_img read more

first_img Image source: Getty Images. Peter Stephens | Thursday, 5th November, 2020 | More on: BDEV RMV Enter Your Email Address The 2020 stock market crash has caused many UK shares to experience challenging operating conditions.Among them are property-focused stocks such as FTSE 100 businesses Barratt (LSE: BDEV) and Rightmove (LSE: RMV). The uncertain outlook for the UK housing market means their share prices have been hugely volatile this year.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…However, this could present a buying opportunity for long-term investors. The new bull market and an economic recovery could push their share prices higher, as well as catalyse ISA portfolios in the coming years.A declining share price in the 2020 stock market crashBarratt’s share price has been one of the FTSE 100’s major casualties in the 2020 stock market crash. It’s currently down by 30% since the start of the year. Lockdown measures and a weak economic outlook have meant that investors have become increasingly concerned about demand for new homes.However, the property market has always been highly cyclical. In other words, it generally experiences booms and busts on a fairly regular basis. Investors who can look beyond short-term risks in a downturn can pick up stocks such as Barratt while they trade on low valuations.Indeed, the company’s shares now have a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 10. This suggests they offer a wide margin of safety after the stock market crash. Meanwhile, its recent updates have shown it has a solid balance sheet and that demand for its homes has been relatively robust. As such, it could offer recovery potential relative to other UK shares as the new bull market gains momentum in the coming years.A leading market position to act as a growth platformRightmove is another UK share that has experienced disappointing performance as a result of the 2020 stock market crash. Its shares have been volatile throughout the year, and have only recently recovered to trade in positive territory year-to-date.However, the company’s recent updates have shown that it has continued to release innovative features on its platform that are likely to help retain its competitive advantage. It has also sought to ease the financial burden of lockdown measures through offering discounted prices to the agents who use its property portal to advertise properties.Looking ahead, Rightmove could produce a sound recovery after the stock market crash. It is forecast to post a 65% rise in net profit next year. Its price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.5 suggests that it offers a wide margin of safety. This could guard against the prospect of reduced earnings growth expectations as the economic outlook changes.Therefore, now could be an opportunity to buy what appears to be a high-quality business while it trades at a low price. It could prove to be a major beneficiary of the new bull market over the coming years.

first_imgThursday Jul 9, 2020 Footage of phenomenal new Bristol Bears training facility that has ‘blown away’ anyone who has seen it Bristol Bears have shared this great footage of their new training facility in Failand, which opened for business this week. In this video, CEO Mark Tainton explains that everyone has been ‘blown away’ by it. ADVERTISEMENTBristol Bears moved to Stage Two of rugby’s return to play process at the club’s brand-new training ground this week. Stage Two allows for the resumption of close contact training, with small groups and/or teams able to interact much closer to one another.The Bears squad, including new arrivals Kyle Sinckler, Semi Radradra, Chris Cook, Max Malins, Ben Earl and Mitch Eadie, began settling into their new state-of-the-art surroundings.Mark Tainton says he and everyone involved at Bristol Bears have been ‘blown away’ by the club’s new training facility, despite it being not quite completed yet.“When you drive down the long driveway, through the trees and get the first sight of the building, it takes you aback. I’ve been blown away – and I’ve been working on it every week for the last year. For the players to see it finished, or nearly finished, it’s amazing – they’re delighted, and they were blown away too,” said the former fly half.“It’s a massive boost to everyone involved in the club that we’ve come to this new facility – and in fairness to the main construction company, Beard, they’ve done a tremendous job.“From what I’ve seen, the players have been very enthused and looking forward to the restart of the season.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

first_imgRashida Hameed leads march in San Diego, June 29.WW photo: Gloria VerdieuWomen and men from all over San Diego County gathered at the Tubman/Chavez Center on June 29 for San Diego’s First All Women’s March. Marchers called for “Peace, unity, justice and an end to violence in our communities.” This call to action was organized by Rashida Hameed, a lifelong resident here, community activist, and president and founder of Epiphany Women of Focus.San Diego’s mayor, Bob Filner, and District 4 Councilwoman Mertle Cole cut a ribbon to start the march, which began at the center on the corner of Euclid Avenue and Market Street. This corner is a great starting point because the Institute of Science, the Malcolm X Library and the Euclid trolley station/bus stop share this intersection.Even though police cars and the police who were present on foot pretty much stopped auto traffic, cops told marchers to stay on the sidewalk.Family members of victims who had been killed participated in the march and spoke at a ceremony after the march.The ceremony following the march honored women who are actively involved in actions aimed at ending the violence. Tokens of appreciation were presented by Rashida Hameed, who facilitated the rally. Among those honored were Beverly Bravo and Beatrice Johnson.Bravo, a mother who for years has comforted families victimized by gang violence, spoke about her son, Jaime Bravo, who was killed in the San Diego community of City Heights in June of 2012. Jaime, who was 21 years old, was not a gang member.Beatrice Johnson of Justice for Oscar Grant recently returned from Florida, where she was supporting the family of Trayvon Martin in preparation for the trial of George Zimmerman. Johnson attended the San Diego People’s Power Assembly at the World Beat Center in March.Johnson said that the conviction of Officer Johannes Mehserle, Oscar Grant’s killer, was the result of his family speaking out and taking the struggle to the streets. Johnson also spoke about the film, “Fruitvale Station.” This film won the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award for U.S. Dramatic Film at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and the Best First Film Award at the Cannes Film Festival. It is scheduled for general release in theatres in July.Johnson encouraged everyone to see this film because it shows the true human character of Oscar Grant.Oscar Grant’s mother, Wanda Johnson, spoke from a cell phone. She said that every life is precious and that we must work together to stop the violence. This was the same message offered by the mother of Billye Venable at a meeting to support the family of Victor Ortega earlier. Venable was killed by San Diego Police Officer James Hunter 10 years ago, in October 2003. Victor Ortega was killed by San Diego Police Officer Jonathan McCarthy in July 2012.The family of Reginald White Jr., one of three people shot in southeast San Diego last January, was holding a graduation picture of Reginald. The 18-year-old Reginald was not a gang member.The message from all the families and supporters is that the pain of losing a loved one from violence is constant because in many cases there is no closure, no answers, no reasons. Police officers who kill are not held accountable, and random killers that are seen as gang members are never found.“Women are the ones left to pick up the pieces after these murders take place,” said Hameed. “It is time for the women in our community to speak out.”The flyer given out at the event read, “We are tired of violence in our community and we will not wait for men to lead us. A people can rise only as high as our women. … Women it’s time to rise!”The march was supported by many community organizations, including the NAACP, 100 Men Strong, the Black Contractors, Overcoming Gangs and Beyond, Project New Village and the Chicano Prison Project.Other speakers included District 79 Assembly Member Shirley Weber and Councilperson Mertle Cole.This All Women’s March is a first step in bringing this community together to begin the discussion on ending violence in our communities.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgThe risk to public health is low and there is no danger to the food supply. Avian Flu Moving Closer to Indiana The Associated Press reported this weekend that four more turkey farms in the Midwest have confirmed cases of H5N2 avian influenza – which means 24 farms have been infected and more than 1.2-million birds have been killed by the disease or authorities trying to contain the disease. The latest cases are in Kandiyohi County Minnesota, McCook and McPherson Counties in South Dakota and Jefferson County Wisconsin. The most recent outbreak in Wisconsin has impacted a commercial flock of 200,000 chickens – the first confirmed case in a commercial chicken farm in the region.

first_img Related Articles Previous: Cash Sales Share Falls to Lowest Level Since September 2008 Next: CFPB Deputy Director Announces Departure Fannie Mae announced its intention to auction three pools of residential single-family non-performing loans (NPLs), the GSE’s second-ever bulk NPL sale.This sale includes two larger pools and a Community Impact Pool, which is a smaller geographically-focused, high occupancy pool. Fannie Mae is marketing the Community Impact Pool to encourage bidding by nonprofits and minority- and women-owned businesses (MWOB).The loans being offered for sale are deeply delinquent, sometimes by two years or more, meaning many of them are likely either in some stage of foreclosure or loss mitigation.”The goal of our non-performing loan sales is to be able to offer borrowers additional options to avoid foreclosure, while also reducing the number of seriously delinquent loans in Fannie Mae’s portfolio,” said Joy Cianci, Fannie Mae’s SVP for Credit Portfolio Management. “We hope to inspire opportunities for non-profit organizations, smaller investors, minority- and women-owned businesses and community groups to work together to help more borrowers avoid foreclosure and collaborate on neighborhood stabilization efforts. We recently held a training forum to bring diverse stakeholders together to explore ways to participate in upcoming NPL sales. We’ll learn and evolve our strategy over time to ensure we meet our goals.”Approximately 3,900 loans are contained in the two larger pools with an aggregate unpaid principal balance (UPB) of about $777 million, while the Community Impact Pool contains approximately 75 loans totaling about $11 million in UPB focused in the Tampa, Florida, area. The loans are available for purchase by qualified bidders and are being marketed in collaboration with Credit Suisse, Wells Fargo, and the Williams Capital Group, according to Fannie Mae.Interested bidders should click here to register for ongoing announcements, training, and other information related to the NPL sale, including information about specific pools. Interested nonprofits, MWOBs and community groups should contact Nadja Fidelia at the Williams Capital Group.Fannie Mae held its first-ever bulk NPL sale in May. That transaction included approximately 3,000 deeply delinquent residential single-family mortgage loans totaling about $762 million in UPB. The loans were sold in two pools; the winners were SW Sponsor and Neuberger Berman Fixed Income Funds.Bidders in NPL auctions must meet qualifications set forth by FHFA, Fannie Mae’s conservator. In early March, FHFA issued enhanced requirements for the buyers and servicers of Agency non-performing loans that call for bidders to identify servicing partners at the time of qualification and complete a questionnaire to demonstrate a record of successful loan resolution through foreclosure alternatives. As part of the new requirements, servicers who purchase non-performing Agency loans must apply a “waterfall of resolution tactics” before resorting to foreclosure. in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Secondary Market Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago  Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

Labor market conditions continued to strengthen and business spending generally expanded across most Districts.”For the reporting period, construction and real estate activity generally expanded while contracts maintained a positive outlook for the rest of the year across Districts. Residential real estate activity generally strengthened (on balance) with the most robust growth being reported in the Districts of San Francisco, Cleveland, and Boston, while the Districts of Dallas, Kansas City, and Atlanta reported more mixed residential real estate reports.While multi-family construction remained strong in most Districts during the reporting period, the Districts of Chicago, Cleveland, and St. Louis noted improvement in the demand for single-family home construction, according to the Fed. The San Francisco District noted improvement in the demand for single-family home construction and reported a backlog of more than six months for new single-family units, the Fed reported.Most Fed Districts reported improved credit conditions (on net); in the Dallas District, however, contacts reported that the lending outlook remained cautious, according to the Fed. Most Districts noted growth in lending for commercial real estate; for consumer lending, the New York, Cleveland, and San Francisco Districts all reported that the demand had increased for residential mortgages. The Dallas District indicated, however, that growth in mortgage loan volumes had slowed during the reporting period, according to the Fed.Click here to view the entire Beige Book for April 2016.

first_imgHR was behind success of Lloyds TSB mergerOn 24 Oct 2000 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article An entirely new set of terms and conditions was a key HR contribution to the success of the Lloyds TSB merger.Peter Chadwick, head of employee relations at Lloyds TSB, told the recent Involvement and Participation Association annual conference at Grantham that HR positioned itself close to the new management team during the merger to avoid being seen as “peripheral” to the process.He said, “When we suggested a new set of terms and conditions the executive practically fell over. They asked if we really thought it was practicable.”But Chadwick said HR pushed ahead with the move, believing it crucial to creating a forward-looking culture that would help the two organisations mould together. He said, “In eight months we went from researching, debating, and negotiating, to implementing it in January 1997.”It brought people together. They didn’t talk about what they used to do. They were part of a new set of terms and conditions.”Lloyds employed 69,000 staff at the time of the merger four years ago, compared to TSB’s 28,000. The merged organisation has 87,500 employees.Chadwick said around 12,000 jobs have been lost since 1996 but without any compulsory redundancies.Another potential difficulty was that each organisation had a distinct identity based on customers with different backgrounds.Although the Lloyds TSB brand was launched 15 months ago, Chadwick said he views it as a measure of the merger’s success that people often say they thought the name was introduced much earlier.Chadwick said the changing political environment four years ago and management’s determination to make the merger work influenced the decision to closely involve the unions. This, he said, had creating a working relationship that has continued.He added, “In comparison with the first few weeks there has been a real step change in union management relations. Union consultation is now a fundamental part of everyday life.”By Helen Rowe Comments are closed. last_img read more
