Customer numbers grew 14 per cent year-on-year: impressive versus tough comparatives. Its price to earnings multiple looks high versus peers, but we believe this reflects its excellent long-term structural growth story.JAMES HAMILTON | NUMISWe believe we are near the beginning of a structural growth opportunity for the company as opposed to nearing the end. We believe the group will have seen its margin expand with this volume growth and so forecast 50.8 per cent pre-tax profits growth for final year 2011, which is ahead of consensus.ROBIN SAVAGE | COLLINS STEWARTGrowth of six per cent in assets under administration is impressive and investors should recognise that asset growth in one quarter grows the revenue receivable in the subsequent quarter. We think market forecasts for final year 2012 need to rise a further six per cent and for 2013 a further ten per cent. Tags: NULL ANALYST VIEWS: HOW MUCH GROWTH IS STILL TO COME AT HARGREAVES?

Aled Brew enjoying French leave with Biarritz

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Between now and the start of the Heineken Cup Brew is focusing solely on the Top 14, with perhaps  a little bit of bodyboarding thrown in if he’s not learning French or taking his Vespa for a spin. “I want to surf eventually,” he says, laughing, “but I’ve got to ease myself into it. One or two of the boys have said they’ll give me lessons.”So far Brew has proved a quicker learner in his new environment so what odds he’ll be ‘hanging ten’ by Christmas? French resistance: Despite plying his trade in France, Brew (left) still hopes to represent Wales in the futureBy Gavin MortimerHE’S GOT the Vespa, he’s learning French and Aled Brew has even been bodyboarding in the famous Biarritz surf. Yes, the former Dragons’ wing is enjoying his new life in the Basque Country – both on and off the pitch.When Rugby World caught up with the 26-year-old, he’d just played a blinder in Biarritz’s 22-17 defeat of Top 14 champions Toulouse. The victory leaves Biarritz top of the pile in the French league, unbeaten in three matches and ahead on points difference of Toulon, the only other club with a 100 per cent record thus far. Not a bad start considering  Biarritz’s talismanic No8 Imanol Harinordoquy is still recovering from a long-term injury.Brew was instrumental in last weekend’s win, creating Biarritz’s only try of the match with an explosive burst that split open the Toulouse defence before sending Damien Traille over the tryline with an impeccably-timed pass. Brew’s form hasn’t gone unnoticed by Midi Olympique, France’s rugby bible, with the newspaper lauding the Welshman as the “decisive” factor against Toulouse and an “invaluable recruit” to the club’s ranks. “I’m very pleased with how things are going,” admitted Brew. “The way Biarritz are playing is how I enjoy playing. They like to move the ball about and it’s been easy to integrate. And the atmosphere at games is incredible, the crowd generate so much noise that it’s a big lift for the players. There are things to work on [in my game] but I’m having a great time.”Brew is also putting in the effort away from the training ground. He has three French lessons a week – a total of 4 1/2 hours in total – and he and his young family (his fiancée and two young children) are determined to immerse themselves in all aspects of  French life. “Before signing for Biarritz I discussed the move in depth with my fiancée,” explains Brew, who’s had spells with the Ospreys and Blues, as well as the Dragons. “We both wanted to sample a new culture and I wanted to improve my rugby by playing in France. My son has just turned six so it was the right time for him; any later and it would have been hard for him to move schools.” Biarritz’s winger Brew Aled (L) is tackled by Agen’s fly-half Barnard Conrad during their friendly rugby match Biarritz Olympique Pays-Basque vs SU Agen Lot et Garonne on July 27, 2012 at the Aguilera stadium in Biarritz, southwestern France . AFP PHOTO GAIZKA IROZ (Photo credit should read GAIZKA IROZ/AFP/GettyImages) Brew isn’t the only Welshman at Biarritz, there’s also prop Ben Broster, and with the likes of Iain Balshaw, Magnus Lund and American flier Takudzwa Ngwenya in the squad the dressing room has its share of English speakers. Across the Top 14 as a whole Brew is one of an increasing number of Welshmen earning his crust in France. He caught up with Jamie Robinson after Biarritz had beaten Agen last month and at the end of September Brew will came face to face with Mike Phillips of Bayonne in what should be a fiery Basque derby.The fact the Top 14 contains so many Welsh players gives Brew hope that he’s still very much in the thoughts of the national selectors. “I definitely want to win more caps,” he says emphatically. “Obviously the first thing I have to do is play well for Biarritz  but with there being so many Welsh players in France I think I’m still on the radar. Hopefully if they do watch me more opportunities to play for Wales will come my way.”The Heineken Cup will give Brew a good opportunity to show the selectors how his game’s improved in France. The Dragons have never been one of Europe’s powerhouses but Biarritz have pedigree in the competition, twice reaching the final and finding themselves this year in a pool featuring Harlequins, Connacht and Zebre of Italy. Brew acknowledges the draw could have been a lot worse. “It’s pretty good for us. We haven’t really discussed the Cup yet but I imagine we’ll expect to do fairly well in our group.”last_img read more

France thumped at home by rampant All Blacks

first_imgSaturday Nov 28, 2009 France thumped at home by rampant All Blacks The All Blacks, wearing all white, outclassed France in Marseilles as they ended their end of year tour with another win by beating the French 39-12.Despite having a poor Tri Nations, New Zealand ended their northern hemisphere tour unbeaten after wins over Wales, Italy, England, and now France.Tonight they showed a brand of rugby thats been missing over the past few weeks, and lacking in their own game for some time. They got it back though, as they showed all the flair and skill that made them the most feared team in the world for many years.Five tries were scored by the All Blacks, namely from Sitiveni Sivivatu, Mils Muliaina, Jerome Kaino, Cory Jane and Conrad Smith. Dan Carter was back to his best too, kicking 14 points.Owen Franks was yellow carded late in the match after tempers flared between the two sides. The All Blacks played a few minutes with 14 players, but it made no difference to the result as theyd done more than enough to secure the great win.Captain Richie McCaw has since been named IRB Player of the Year, a somewhat surprising choice as he beat out favourites Fourie Du Preez and Brian ODriscoll.“It’s a huge honour,” said McCaw. “One guy gets this but you can’t do it without your mates.” McCaw was also quite naturally delighted with the convincing display against the French.“It was an incredible Test match between France and New Zealand and we appreciate that,” he said.The All Blacks play the Barbarians in London next weekend, a match which will see them up against a strong Baa Baas side. A win there will cap off a fantastic end of season tour.

Cyber-dissident sentenced to 11 years in jail

first_img Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) today called for the release of Li Dawei, who has just been sentenced to 11 years imprisonment for having downloaded and printed out pro-democracy texts from the Internet.”As far as we know, this is the most severe sentence ever imposed by the Chinese justice system on a web user or cyber-dissident”, said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard, who addressed a letter on 6 August to Justice Minister Fusen Zhang asking him to do everything possible to ensure Li Dawei is released.”Arrests, blocked sites, self-censorship, torture, police surveillance andclosure of cyber-cafés, the Chinese State now has a repressive arsenal that testifies to its hostility toward freedom of expression on the Internet”, Ménard said.According to the Information Centre for Human Rights and Democracy, Li Dawei was sentenced on 24 June by a court in China’s northwestern province of Gansu after having been found guilty of trying to “subvert the state power”. A former policeman, he was accused of having downloaded more than 500 texts form Chinese democracy sites based abroad, especially, and having edited them in a number of unpublished books. He was also said to have been in contact with “reactionary” organisations based abroad.Aged 40, Li Dawei was arrested in April 2002 and his trial began in May. His lawyer, Dou Peixin, said the province’s highest court had accepted the appeal filed against the conviction.At least 20 cyber-dissidents are currently detained in China, including Huang Qi, a web site’ creator, who was arrested on 3 June 2000 and is still held without having been tried. Yang Zili and three animators of the site have been held without trial since March 2001.

Required fields are marked * This is the first image of Asteroid 2020 QG, captured by Caltech’s Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF) after the asteroid’s closest approach to Earth at a distance of 1,830 miles above the planet’s surface. The asteroid shows up as a streak because it is closer than the background stars, and zipped past ZTF’s camera.Credit: ZTF/Caltech Optical ObservatoriesNear Earth Asteroids, or NEAs, pass by our home planet all the time. But an SUV-size asteroid set the record this past weekend for coming closer to Earth than any other known NEA: It passed 1,830 miles (2,950 kilometers) above the southern Indian Ocean on Sunday, Aug. 16 at 12:08 a.m. EDT (Saturday, Aug. 15 at 9:08 p.m. PDT).At roughly 10 to 20 feet (3 to 6 meters) across, asteroid 2020 QG is very small by asteroid standards: If it had actually been on an impact trajectory, it would likely have become a fireball as it broke up in Earth’s atmosphere, which happens several times a year.By some estimates, there are hundreds of millions of small asteroids the size of 2020 QG, but they are extremely hard to discover until they get very close to Earth. The vast majority of NEAs pass by safely at much greater distances – usually much farther away than the Moon.“It’s really cool to see a small asteroid come by this close, because we can see the Earth’s gravity dramatically bend its trajectory,” said Paul Chodas, director of the Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. “Our calculations show that this asteroid got turned by 45 degrees or so as it swung by our planet.”Zipping along at almost 8 miles per second (12.3 kilometers per second) – a little slower than average, Chodas noted – 2020 QG was first recorded as just a long streak in a wide-field camera image taken by the Zwicky Transient Facility. The image was taken six hours after the closest point of approach as the asteroid was heading away from Earth. A sky-scanning survey telescope funded by the National Science Foundation and NASA, the Zwicky Transient Facility is based at Caltech’s Palomar Observatory in San Diego County. NASA’s Near-Earth Object Observations Program funds data processing for NEO detections.Asteroid 2020 QG enters the record books as the closest known nonimpacting asteroid; many very small asteroids impact our planet every year, but only a few have actually been detected in space a few hours before impacting Earth. On average, an asteroid the size of 2020 QG passes this closely only a few times a year.In 2005, Congress assigned NASA the goal of finding 90% of the near-Earth asteroids that are about 460 feet (140 meters) or larger in size. These larger asteroids pose a much greater threat if they were to impact, and they can be detected much farther away from Earth, because their rate of motion across the sky is typically much smaller at that distance.“It’s quite an accomplishment to find these tiny close-in asteroids in the first place, because they pass by so fast,” Chodas said. “There’s typically only a short window of a couple of days before or after close approach when this small of an asteroid is close enough to Earth to be bright enough but not so close that it moves too fast in the sky to be detected by a telescope.”A division of Caltech in Pasadena, JPL hosts CNEOS for NASA’s Near-Earth Object Observations Program in NASA’s Planetary Defense Coordination Office.

CEO Brian Moynihan and CFO Paul Donofrio delivered the remarks.The bank reported a net income of $5.3 billion, which was a 10 percent increase. Earnings per share also increased at a rate of 12 percent, stopping at $0.46 per share. These numbers are in comparison to previously reported net income of $4.8 billion and an EPS of $0.41. Revenue was also on the rise at a rate of 7 percent, jumping from $21.3 billion to $22.8 billion.Net interest income was reported to be $11.0 billion, an increase of 9 percent, which, according to the bank, is a reflection of the Fed’s increased interest rates and loan grown. Noninterest income was $11.8 billion, an increase of 6 percent. BOA attributes this to higher investment banking fees and the sale of the non-U.S. consumer credit card business.In the realm if consumer banking, total active users on the bank’s mobile app jumped to 22.9 million, an increase of 13 percent, and Merrill Edge brokerage assets were up 21 percent. Loans, deposits, and net income were all up, at $18.6 billion, $56.3 billion, and $2 billion, respectively.”Against modest economic growth of 2 percent, we had one of the strongest quarters in our history. All of our businesses delivered strong results, with several setting new records,” said Brian Moynihan, CEO of Bank of America. “The investments we made to transform how we serve clients produced 500 basis points of operating leverage in the quarter. We achieved our 60 percent efficiency ratio target, and we continued to manage credit risk carefully in line with responsible growth. This supports our plan to return $17 billion in capital during the next four quarters, including a 60 percent increase in the quarterly common dividend.”You can read the full quarterly report here.last_img read more

At a seasonally adjusted rate of 4.88 percent of all loans outstanding, the rate was up 64 basis points from Q2 2017 and 36 basis points higher from Q3 2016.Foreclosure action starts represented 0.25 percent of all loans in Q3, a one basis point decrease from the previous quarter and five basis point decrease from a year ago.According to Marina Walsh, MBA’s VP of Industry Analysis, Q3 2017 Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria caused disruptions and destruction in numerous states. Florida, Texas, neighboring states, as well as devastated Puerto Rico, saw substantial increases in their past due rates.“In future surveys, we may see a temporary drop in foreclosure starts in hurricane-impacted states due to storm-related foreclosure moratoria, as was seen during Hurricane Katrina in 2005,” Walsh said.The seriously delinquent rate, which combines loans that are 90 days or more past due with those loans in the process of foreclosure, was 2.52 percent in the third quarter, up 3 basis points from the previous quarter, but 44 basis points lower than one year ago.Mortgage delinquencies increased on a seasonally adjusted basis. The FHA delinquency rate increased to 9.40 percent from 7.94 percent in the second quarter, a 146 basis-point increase and the highest quarter-over-quarter increase reported in the history of our survey.Other delinquency increases included conventional (3.97 percent in Q3 2017, 3.47 percent Q2 2017), and VA (4.24 percent in Q3 2017, 3.72 Q2 2017).”While the storms played a critical factor in explaining the rise in the overall delinquency rate, there are other factors to consider, especially given delinquency rate increases in other states not directly impacted by the storms,” Walsh said.The first factor noted was the timing issues associated with the last day of the month being a Saturday. Second, delinquency rates were already at historic lows in Q2 2017.Meanwhile, other considerable factors include seasonality, rising loan-to-value and debt-to-income ratios for certain product types, normal loan aging, and declining average credit scores on new FHA endorsements since 2014 as the agency has withdrawn from its counter-cyclical role during the crisis.

Also, one in three homebuyers up to the age of 44 don’t know if they are insured. More than 30% of homeowners between the ages of 45 of 54 do not have insurance. The South was found to have the most homeowners with insurance at nearly 60%. One in three homeowners in the Midwest reported not knowing if they have insurance and nearly 20% of homeowners in the Northeast not having insurance—the highest in the nation. Analysis from ValuePenguin found that around 81% of people say they worry about environmental changes, and two-thirds of people don’t think enough is being done to combat its effects. While more than half of the respondents who worry about environmental change are homeowners, up to 47% of all homeowners in the survey weren’t confident they have enough insurance to protect their property from climate-induced natural disasters. Also, almost 42% of homeowners wouldn’t pay more to insure their homes due to climate change. Just 18% would pay $500 or more annually to insure their homes against natural disasters.A report by Zillow in August reveals half of the residents in major U.S. metro areas believe environmental changes will impact their homes or communities.  The Zillow Housing Housing Aspirations Report reveals that young adults and people who live in coastal metros are the most likely to anticipate their lives will be impacted by climate change.The report states that around 62% of people ages 18 to 34 say their homes or communities will be affected either “somewhat” or “a great deal” in their lifetimes, compared with 51% of people ages 35 to 54, and only 39% of those 55 and older.
