US authorities will announce string of insider dealing cases

first_img KCS-content whatsapp US authorities will announce string of insider dealing cases whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL Monday 22 November 2010 6:10 amcenter_img Share Federal authorities are closing in on a series of high profile targets as part of a drive to purge insider trading from Wall Street.They are understood to be on the verge of announcing cases against hedge fund traders, consultants and Wall Street bankers within weeks, according to lawyers working on the cases.Prosecutors and securities regulators are likely to file a number of cases targeting the $1.7 trillion hedge fund industry rather than a single spectacular case, said the lawyers.They are likely to reveal suspicions of multiple, highly organised insider trading rings suspected of reaping tens of millions of dollars for their members over a period of years.The probe is said to include up to three dozen companies.The new round of prosecutions could start before Christmas, lawyers said, adding that they could rival last year’s arrest of Galleon Group hedge fund manager Raj Rajaratnam and nearly two-dozen others in one of the largest insider trading cases ever brought.Authorities are still deciding whether to pursue cases against several individuals who were implicated but never charged in the Galleon case and another case involving a former UBS investment banker. 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 PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Nomura hit as US expansion limits profits

first_img Nomura hit as US expansion limits profits NOMURA plans to expand into China in the next 18 months, according to the chief operating officer of its wholesale business Jesse Bhattal, who spoke as the firm’s fourth quarter results missed forecasts.“It is one of the most important geographies. We would like to over the next 12 to 18 months have a local market presence in China,” Bhattal said.But the bank will need to convince investors that expansion will provide the jumpstart needed after yesterday’s results.The bank reported a net profit for the fourth quarter of 2010 of ¥13.39bn (£101.3m) – well short of consensus forecasts of ¥17.4bn. In line with US convention, it regards the fourth calendar quarter as its third financial quarter, and will report “full-year” results in March. The bank has struggled since buying up the non-US assets of Lehman Brothers. During the past 18 months it has added more than 1,000 staff in the US in a bid to break into the top tier of investment banking. But it has yet to reap the rewards of its investment. Its wholesale business, which includes investment banking, was particularly badly hit: the division recorded a ¥22bn loss over the nine months to December. Nine-month fees from investment banking fell 11.8 per cent to ¥79.2bn. The disappointing profits were in part on the back of costs rising in relation to revenues: nine-month non-interest expenses fell 2.6 per cent to ¥775.5bn, whereas nine-month revenues fell 4.8 per cent. Overall, its nine-month pre-tax profit was down 27.2 per cent to ¥55.8bn. The bank’s asset management division, however, helped to prop up its earnings, bringing in ¥17.1bn for the nine months to December, a rise of 25 per cent on the previous nine months. whatsapp whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeBlood Pressure Solution4 Worst Blood Pressure MedsBlood Pressure Solutionautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Herald More From Our Partners Fans call out hypocrisy as Tebow returns to NFL while Kaepernick is still outthegrio.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgPorsha Williams engaged to ex-husband of ‘RHOA’ co-star Falynn Guobadiathegrio.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comLA news reporter doesn’t seem to recognize actor Mark Currythegrio.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgKansas coach fired for using N-word toward Black playerthegrio.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFort Bragg soldier accused of killing another servicewoman over exthegrio.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comMan on bail for murder arrested after pet tiger escapes Houston homethegrio.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comColin Kaepernick to publish book on abolishing the policethegrio.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.com center_img Share KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Wednesday 2 February 2011 7:43 pm Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Another journalist disappears in Yahya Jammeh’s country

first_img News January 27, 2020 Find out more August 6, 2020 Find out more to go further RSF_en News Three journalist arrested, two radio stations closed in Gambia July 9, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Another journalist disappears in Yahya Jammeh’s country A member of his family said he was bundled into a car on 17 July and was driven away to an unknown location.After his second abduction, the family knew nothing of his whereabouts until 22 July, when persons identified by relatives as members of the National IntelligenceAgency (NIA) arrived with him at his home, searched the house, and then left with him again. Follow the news on Gambia GambiaAfrica News Reporters Without Borders is very concerned about Radio Teranga FM manager Alagie Sisay’s disappearance since the evening of 2 July, when two suspected members of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) abducted him outside the radio station.His abduction came a day after the NIA questioned all of the staff of the independent newspaper The Voice for two hours at the agency’s Banjul headquarters.Sisay had just finished the meal ending the daily Ramadan fast when a friend told him that two men outside the radio station were asking to see him. Sisay went outside to speak to them and neither his family nor his colleagues have seen him since then.An eye-witness said the two men bundled him into their 4WD vehicle and drove away. His brother said Sisay managed to call him on his mobile phone and had time to say he had been taken by NIA officers before the call was disconnected. His family and colleagues reported his disappearance to police and intelligence officials, who claimed to know nothing of his whereabouts.“We are extremely worried about Alagie Sisay’s disappearance,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Africa desk. “Journalists disappearing after being kidnapped is nothing new in Gambia. The disappearance nine years ago of Chief Ebrima Manneh is still unsolved.“Every day that passes increases our concern about Sisay’s fate. We join the Gambia Press Union in urging the authorities to do everything possible to locate this journalist as quickly as possible.”Radio Teranga FM has long been in the government’s sights. Several members of its staff have been questioned by the NIA in the past. Launched in 2009, it has been shut down three times in recent years by the government. When it last reopened in 2014 (after being closed for 16 months) it was banned from broadcasting press reviews.The Voice staff members who were interrogated by the NIA on 1 July were editor Musa S. Sheriff and reporters Sulayman Ceesay, Bakary Ceesay, Mafugi Ceesay and Amadou Bah.Sheriff was questioned about the way the newspaper operates, its funding and its contacts abroad. They were all also questioned about their families, friends and place of residence, and their photos were taken. The NIA said it was gathering this information in order to be able to guarantee their safety, because “so much is being talked about the paper and its reporters.” Ceesay was detained for an hour by the NIA a month ago for covering a political rally by President Yahya Jammeh. In 2014, Sheriff was the target of an 11-month-long prosecution on a charge of publishing false news that was eventually dismissed.Ranked 151st out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, Gambia has been ruled since 1994 by President Jammeh, who is on the Reporters Without Borders list of “Predators of Press Freedom.”The government deals ruthlessly with troublesome journalists such as Agence France-Presse correspondent Deyda Hydara, who was shot dead in his car in 2004, or Chief Ebrima Manneh, who has been missing since the NIA arrested him in 2006. The few privately-owned media outlets censor themselves and live in fear of arbitrary prosecutions.center_img “This second abduction is very worrying, not only as regards Alagie Ceesay’s safety but also for all Gambian journalists, who could be the victims of similar arbitrary abuses carried out with complete impunity,” Reporters Without Borders said.“We call on the government to launch a serious and thorough investigation with the aim of locating Ceesay, obtaining his release, and punishing the perpetrators and instigators of his abduction.” Gambia: former president must stand trial for journalist’s murder News Gambia still needs to address challenges to press freedom ******************************************* Reporters Without Borders calls on the Gambian government to locate Radio Teranga FM manager Alagie Ceesay, who was released on 13 July, 11 days after his abduction on 2 July, but was kidnapped again four days later.

HUD: Housing Improves; Still Needs Further Recovery

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago  Print This Post Colin Robins is the online editor for DSNews.com. He holds a Bachelor of Arts from Texas A&M University and a Master of Arts from the University of Texas, Dallas. Additionally, he contributes to the MReport, DS News’ sister site. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released its April 2014 Housing Scorecard, noting that home prices remained stable, foreclosure completions continued to their lowest levels since mid-2007, existing home sales stabilized, new home sales slowed, and the administration’s foreclosure mitigation efforts continued to provide relief for troubled homeowners.The agency found that as of February 2014, the FHFA purchase-only house price index rose 6.9 percent year-over-year, and ticked up .6 percent from January, seasonally-adjusted. The seasonally adjusted purchase-only index for the U.S. found that home values are on par with prices from mid-2005.Foreclosure completions totaled approximately 29,000 in March, down 5 percent from February and down 34 percent from March 2013. The drop in foreclosures represented the lowest level seen since July 2007. Newly initiated foreclosures were roughly 55,700, up 7 percent from February.Regardless, foreclosure starts were still down 24 percent from last year.HUD found that existing-home sales stabilized in March, remaining virtually unchanged. Existing-home sales were below year-ago levels for the fifth consecutive month. The report from HUD cites a National Association of Realtors report that attributed the stagnation in sales to low inventory, fewer distressed properties, strict banking lending standards, less favorable affordability, and the unusually harsh winter.New home sales also experienced a slump, dropping 14.5 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 384,000 in March—an eight month low. “New home sales were down 13.3 percent from a year earlier, the first annual decline since the third quarter of 2011,” HUD found.The government’s loss mitigation programs provided a bright spot in HUD’s report. The government agency found that 2 million homeowner assistance actions have taken place through the Making Home Affordable Program, which included nearly 1.4 million permanent modifications through the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP).HUD found that the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) has offered nearly 2.3 million loss mitigation and early delinquency interventions through March. Additionally, mortgage aid was extended 7.7 million times, outpacing foreclosures. Housing counselors also continued to provide assistance, counseling 10.3 million households since April 1, 2009.In total, more than 8.3 million mortgage modifications and other assistance arrangements were completed between April 2009 and the end of March 2014.HUD tempered its good news with a word of caution:”Encouraging news notwithstanding, there is a need to continue with recovery efforts as home sales have slowed, too many homeowners remain underwater, and mortgage delinquencies rates remain elevated. There is also considerable geographic variation in market conditions not captured in the national statistics, which suggests some markets are improving at different rates than others.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / HUD: Housing Improves; Still Needs Further Recovery Tagged with: April Housing Scorecard Existing Home Sales Foreclosures HAMP HUD New Home Sales Previous: Fannie/Freddie Reform Bill Stalls in Senate Next: GSE Quarterly Report Card Positive Share Save Sign up for DS News Daily The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agocenter_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News Subscribe April Housing Scorecard Existing Home Sales Foreclosures HAMP HUD New Home Sales 2014-05-09 Colin Robins Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago May 9, 2014 794 Views HUD: Housing Improves; Still Needs Further Recovery Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago About Author: Colin Robins Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Related Articleslast_img read more
