Share Standard?Life reports 10pc profits boost whatsapp whatsapp STANDARD LIFE delivered a higher operating profit and cranked up its dividend yesterday, but investors were underwhelmed by weaker UK performance and shrinking margins.The Scottish life and pensions group hailed “the progress we have made as a business” as David Nish announced his first interim results as chief executive. Strong sales in Canada and Asia helped push operating profits up 10 per cent to £182m on an International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) basis, with the post-tax figure also standing at £182m after a loss of £20m last year. Standard?Life also boosted its half-year payout 4.8 per cent to 4.35p. But disappointed investors sold Standard Life paper, sending the stock down 2.4 per cent to 151.1p. Given a share price rally of almost a quarter over the past month some analysts said profit-taking was to be expected, but others said concerns were more deep-seated.UK operating profits were down five per cent to £76m, partially depressed by an investment programme, while the margin slipped 30 basis points to 1.5 per cent.Barrie Cornes at Panmure Gordon said: “What they’re doing in terms of investing all comes through in 12 to 18 months’ time. In the meantime I’m not convinced growth will be as stellar as it could be.”Marcus Barnard at Oriel Securities said it was difficult to gauge the outlook for the company as it was still in transition from mutual to large-scale seller of savings products. “You can give them the benefit of the doubt but it’s difficult to get any great deal of comfort from these numbers.”Nish insisted the group was more focused after the sale of its banking and healthcare units and said the board was unfazed by the prospect of a weak economy. “In a lower-growth environment you often see the savings rate go up because individuals still have money,” he told City A.M.

In the tradition of Black actors and artists like Harry Belafonte who used their celebrity to help advance the Civil Rights Movement, Blackout for Human Rights organized a free public event, #JusticeforFlint, at Flint’s Whiting Auditorium on Feb. 28, as well as an online fund drive. A surprise appearance by Michigan-born Motown music legend Stevie Wonder capped the performances by artists from Michigan and around the country.On-stage testimony by Flint residents and young organizers highlighted a spirit of resilience and struggle, but also the personal cost imposed on them by the state government. A high school student who was told only a few weeks ago that water at her private school was unsafe said students had originally been directed to buy water from vending machines. Elementary school students talked about skin eruptions and other illnesses from washing with lead-laden water and of bathing with baby wipes.Filmmaker Ryan Coogler opens#JusticeforFlint Feb. 28.Photo: Blackout Team PhotosDr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, the Flint pediatrician who sounded the lead poisoning alarm, pointed out that Flint families have been fighting for justice for almost two years, but no one heard their voices. “They needed evidence that our kids were being poisoned. And our water is still not safe. The 18 months of corrosive untreated water damaged our infrastructure, and we still cannot drink from our taps. That is not justice.”Dr. Hanna-Attisha continued: “Lead, even before this, was an environmental injustice. Our Flint kids had higher lead levels than those kids in the suburbs, even before this. And after this, those disparities significantly widened. That is the last thing our kids need. They already have too many obstacles for success.” She cited Flint’s 40 percent poverty rate and lack of nutrition sources. “Our work is just beginning. It will continue for decades to come.” She thanked the performers for providing the best medicine — laughter and enjoyment.Clarence Thomas and Stacey Rodgers, ILWU Local 10.WW photo: Cheryl LaBashLatino/a community representatives sat on stage with actor and author Hill Harper and explained that without Spanish language information many Latin American families attempted to make the water safe by boiling it — which only concentrated the lead levels. Undocumented residents are fearful of bringing their children in for testing because of the climate of repression. Harper spoke strongly for Black-Brown unity against common oppression.Fighting to stop human rights violationsFilmmaker Ryan Coogler, the founder of Blackout for Human Rights, is from Oakland, Calif., the home of militant International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 10. A delegation from Local 10 came to Flint, including its past Secretary-Treasurer Clarence Thomas and Stacey Rodgers, who authored a resolution “For Labor Action to Stop Flint’s Poisoned Water Crisis and Hold Michigan’s Governor Snyder Accountable.” It was passed unanimously by not only Local 10 but the San Francisco Labor Council. Read the full resolution at tinyurl.com/j6gx2ao.Coogler’s first film, “Fruitvale Station” (2013), followed by the critically acclaimed “Creed” in 2015, was made to expose and stop blatant police killing like that which took Oscar Grant’s life in 2009, captured for all to see on cellphone video. As the videoed killings of Black and Brown men, women and children have continued and accelerated, Coogler and his colleagues founded Blackout to use their considerable creativity and talent for the same purpose.According to a press release for the event, Blackout for Human Rights is a collective of filmmakers, artists and activists “devoting their resources to address the staggering number of human rights violations in the United States.” The collective includes Michael B. Jordan, Ava DuVernay, David Oyelowo and many others. In January Blackout hosted #MLKNOW at Riverside Church in Harlem. That event didn’t shy away from the revolutionary words of slain Black Panther leader Fred Hampton, which were also heard in video clips shown on the Flint screen.As of Feb. 29, #JusticeforFlint raised more than $145,000 in donations to help Flint organizations. A Flint People’s Hearing is planned for March 5, sponsored by Flint Rising, Flint Democracy Defense League and Michigan Faith in Action.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

About Author: Seth Welborn The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles May 21, 2019 1,978 Views The black homeownership rate is not vastly different now than what it was when the 1968 Fair Housing Act became law, according to an article by economist John Wake in Forbes. Wake notes that black homeownership increased by 20% from 1950 to 1970, before housing discrimination was outlawed. Since the Act, however, the rate has remained flat. Wake offers some possible explanations. Wake notes that, as a form of compromise, the Fair Housing Act did not include strong enforcement powers. “Just four months after the Fair Housing Act was signed into law, the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 was signed into law,” Wake said. “It included the soon to be infamous Section 235 program from FHA that let lower-income people who couldn’t qualify for other mortgages get these new subsidized mortgages with down payments as low as $200 and subsidized, below-market interest rates as low as 1%.”On top of a lower homeownership rate, black and hispanic neighborhoods have also experienced a higher rate of foreclosure, on average, especially in the years following the financial crisis. A recent report from Zillow stated that, based on the gap in housing between communities of color and white communities, homes in black and Hispanic neighborhoods are 2 and 2.5-times more likely to experience foreclosures than those in white communities, respectively.What has led to the flat black homeownership rate, even in recent times? According to Wake, the answer is an “inelastic supply,” over-stretched homeowners, high foreclosure neighborhoods, and what Wake calls a “Super Slo-Mo Feedback Loop.” “Sometimes things happen so fast they’re hard to see. With real estate, sometimes things happen so slow they’re hard to see,” Wake says.Bridging the Black Homeownership GapA recent report by the Urban Institute suggested five possible solutions to help increase homeownership rates among African-Americans. According to the report, bridging this gap will require several approaches:Advancing policy solutions at a local levelTackling housing supply constraints and affordabilityPromoting an equitable and accessible housing finance systemOutreach and counseling for renters and mortgage-ready millennialsA focus on sustainable homeownership and preservationEarlier this year, the American Mortgage Diversity Council (AMDC) also presented a webinar delving into the topic, entitled “The State of Housing in Black America.” During that webinar, Charmaine Brown, Director, External Outreach and Engagement, Office of Minority and Women Inclusion at Fannie Mae, pointed out that “African-American homeownership rates are the same as it used to be in 1968, whereas the number of incarcerations in the community as well as the wealth gap between black and white families tripled between 1968-2016.”Click here to view that webinar.
