ANALYST VIEWS: ARE ITV’S RESULTS AS GOOD AS THEY LOOK?

first_img ANALYST VIEWS: ARE ITV’S RESULTS AS GOOD AS THEY LOOK? Show Comments ▼ whatsapp LORNA TILBIAN | NUMISITV was one of our key picks for 2011 and we retain our ‘buy’ recommendation. The first-quarter is up 12 per cent and April is currently 8-12 per cent better, though comparatives get markedly harder through 2011, particularly due to the World Cup. We are raising our target price to 115p.PAUL GOODEN | RBSThe key questions is where will earnings settle in 2011. Management is guiding to a 23 per cent tax rate in 2011, and interest costs are expected to be around £65m, so our initial guesstimate is that consensus earnings per share for 2011 will be in the 7.5p-8p range.STEVE LIECHTI | INVESTECResults are as good as we expected with a few extra positives, for example a lower tax charge. ITV remains a company still clearly in transition with an aggressive new management team driving change. We are unsure if long-term pressure on TV ad revenues can be offset at this stage, so retain our ‘hold’.

Ban on LA County In-Person Dining to Take Effect on Wednesday; Pasadena Restaurants Not Affected

first_img Top of the News STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week Photo by James CarboneA ban prohibiting in-person dining at L.A. County restaurants will go into effect at 10 p.m. on Wednesday.Pasadena will not be impacted by the ban.At Monday’s Pasadena City Council meeting city officials announced they were still monitoring the data and were not shuttering in-person dining.But late Tuesday afternoon, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors rejected a motion by Supervisors Kathryn Barger and Janice Hahn to reconsider the ban on outdoor dining being imposed due to a surge in coronavirus cases.The ban was announced Sunday night when the county’s five-day average of daily new cases topped the threshold of 4,000.The threshold was established by the county last week, along with a more restrictive tier that would trigger a new stay-at-home order if the daily five-day case average topped 4,500. The county reached that threshold Monday.The county restriction ends in-person dining for three weeks.“Businesses have made incredible sacrifices to align with safety protocols to remain open in order to pay their bills and feed their families,” Supervisor Barger said. “Our hospitalization rates are among the lowest we’ve seen. Yet, the rationale for further closures is tied to the number of patients in the hospital. We’ve come a long way to support workers and residents who are struggling to stay afloat and should not regress on the progress we’ve made.”The Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation predicted that approximately 700,000 jobs in the food industry would be lost during this shutdown.The LAEDC also highlighted that approximately 75% of all projected job losses would be those earning $50,000 or less.The California Restaurant Association unsuccessfully attempted to stop the action with a restraining order. A judge did allow a lawsuit to continue.“The recent order with no stated scientific basis from L.A. County singles out a specific industry and could jeopardize thousands of jobs,” Jot Condie, president/CEO of the California Restaurant Association, said in a statement announcing the legal challenge. “There are thousands of restaurants and many thousands more employees who could be out on the street right before the holiday season.”Association attorney Dennis Ellis told reporters he was disappointed in the ruling, but said the organization hasn’t seen any evidence that outdoor dining — which was already restricted to half of overall capacity last week — has fueled the coronavirus surge.“We have not been able to see what the county has to support the notion that outdoor dining at 50% capacity, consistent with what the governor has authorized in his blueprint, is inappropriate and needs to be shut down,” Ellis said.“Outdoor dining is probably more dangerous in terms of contagion than any other kind of business,” Supervisor Sheila Kuehl said earlier. She said diners at restaurants “sit for hours with no masks on” and are in close proximity to servers and patrons walking by.Long Beach, which has its own health department, also plans to bar in-person dining Wednesday night. The Long Beach Restaurant Association blasted the move and plans to hold a news conference Wednesday demanding a meeting with city and county health officials.In a statement, the association accused health officials of attacking an “easy target” to blame for the surge in cases, without any evidence.

New accommodation needed for trafficking victims

first_imgWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Thomond Community College to hold its annual Multicultural Day RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement by Kathy MastersonSign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up [email protected] migrant rights organisation Doras Luimní is calling on Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald to provide alternative accommodation for victims of human trafficking, who are currently housed in direct provision centres.“We would be very critical of the Government policy since 2007 of housing trafficking victims in direct provision centres while the investigations are ongoing.“Victims of trafficking, and sex trafficking in particular, are especially vulnerable, they have suffered a lot of trauma and some would be suffering with post traumatic stress,” explained Patricia Stapleton, anti-trafficking officer with Doras Luimní.This week a report was submitted to Minister Fitzgerald criticising Ireland’s treatment of both asylum seekers and victims of trafficking.The report, compiled by the Immigrant Council of Ireland, Focus Ireland, Sonas Housing and Nasc, has called for short-term emergency accommodation and more support facilities to be made available to victims of sex traffickers.The submission of the report coincides with the release of figures from the Central Statistics Office showing a 133 per cent increase in human trafficking offences in Ireland between June 2013 and June 2014.According to Ms Stapleton, direct provision centres are “wholly inappropriate” for the needs of human trafficking victims.“They have to share rooms with other people, there is open access and they don’t get the support they need. They are victims of human rights abuses and they should be entitled to more appropriate accommodation for their needs.We would be advocating for the Minister to create an alternative housing solution for victims of human trafficking,” she saidMs Stapleton revealed that, like asylum seekers, victims of human traffickers can also be left living in direct provision centres for extended periods of time, which can have a negative impact on mental health.She added that the living conditions can cause some of the victims to suffer “secondary trauma in addition to the trauma they have already suffered”.

HARP Modifications Dwindle; Overall Refi Activity Way Down

first_imgSign up for DS News Daily The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / HARP Modifications Dwindle; Overall Refi Activity Way Down About Author: Tory Barringer The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Mortgage refinance volumes reversed course in November, turning down as the government’s refinance program continued to see its popularity dwindle.Monthly data released by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) shows Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac together reported 134,582 refinances in November 2014, down from nearly 139,000 in October.Monthly refinance numbers moved in fits and starts throughout 2014, bouncing between a low of 105,059 in March and October’s year-to-date high—though the trend in the year’s latter half was largely upward as mortgage rates fell to nearly 4.0 percent.As overall refinancing fell, so too did the number of mortgages refinanced under the Obama administration’s Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP), which targets borrowers with high loan-to-value (LTV) ratios. For November, the GSEs reported a combined 12,429 HARP refinances, putting demand for the program at its lowest point in years.Year-to-date through November, HARP refinances totaled just 201,337, less than a quarter of 2013’s full-year number (892,909).While FHFA has focused in the past year on marketing the program through town hall-style events and other borrower outreach initiatives, analysts say the drop in HARP activity stems not from lack of awareness, but from a lack of new and eligible homeowners.”Everybody that has been or could be through that program did it and has moved on,” said John Bell, a principal at United Fidelity Funding Corp., a wholesale mortgage lender.Bell says that at this point, the government would be better served by expanding eligibility requirements, as it already did once in 2012. Though FHFA Director Mel Watt has offered no signal that the agency will create “HARP 3.0″ before the program’s expiration at the end of this year, it does seem a more likely possibility, given the Obama administration’s push to make mortgage credit more affordable.For Bell—who works out of an office in Irvine, California—the first step would be to raise loan limits for certain high-cost areas. The second would be to loosen some federal regulations, such as the qualified mortgage (QM) rule, which he says has hampered some homeowners who would otherwise be eligible for HARP.”We’d be really excited to see [HARP] 3.0 come out with expanded loan limits, maybe lower FICO scores, and possibly reduced QM requirements … on some loans,” he said.

Freshman’s alleged hazing death prompts VCU move to permanently ban fraternity

first_imgCourtesy Courtney White(RICHMOND, Va.) — A suspended fraternity at Virginia Commonwealth University could be banned for life if an investigation by the school determines the Greek organization was responsible for misconduct related to the death this year of a 19-year-old freshman, whose family alleges was the victim of an alcohol-fueled fatal hazing incident.Officials at the university in Richmond announced this week that they have tentatively recommended the permanent removal of the Delta Chi chapter but will hold off on the ban until an investigation by the school’s Division of Student Affairs is complete.The move to abolish the fraternity from VCU comes as the Richmond Police Department continues its investigation into the death of freshman Adam Oakes in February at an off-campus party involving Delta Chi pledges.The Division of Student Affairs initiated disciplinary proceedings against the Delta Chi fraternity on Monday, according a statement from the school.The university said it will move forward with plans to issue a lifetime ban on Delta Chi if the allegations are found to be responsible for Oakes’ death.Once complete, the Division of Student Affairs report will be reviewed by VCU’s Student Organization Conduct Committee, which will decide the fraternity’s fate. VCU officials said they expect the school’s investigation to be completed sometime this summer.Oakes’ family welcomed the university’s probe.“I’d love to say that after Adam’s death we can change the world and we can change the culture. But I have to think realistically, you know. This happens in so many other states,” Oakes’ cousin, Courtney White, told ABC affiliate station WRIC-TV in Richmond.White and other family member allege that hazing involving alcohol played a significant role in Oakes’ death after he received a bid to rush the fraternity.Oakes was found unresponsive on Feb. 27 at an off-campus residence near the university, according to the Richmond Police Department. Police have released few details on the investigation and results of an autopsy on Oakes have not been released.VCU and the Delta Chi national chapter both suspended the VCU Delta Chi chapter in the wake of Oakes’ death.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

The ‘finger thing’ that helps estate agents avoid getting Coronavirus at work

But North Yorkshire manufacturer Sylatech says the finger appendage has a serious role to play in keeping the virus at bay.It is made of a copper-based alloy that is effective at killing a broad range of bacteria, fungi and viruses but also, the company claims, is an ideal way for estate agents in branches or those completing property viewings to avoid touch surfaces without having to don protective gloves.Charlie Breese, Sylatech’s Managing Director, says: “Our aim for the KeepSafe is simple, to help limit the spread of Covid-19 and to reduce your potential exposure to Coronavirus.“It has good application use with door handles, light switches, toilet levers, taps and more”.“The KeepSafe is not a substitute for regular and thorough handwashing, but an extra weapon in the fight against this invisible enemy.”Estate agents will also be supporting a UK engineering company whose main market, the aerospace industry, has been hit hard by the Coronavirus crisis, although it also makes components for the space, defence, medical, automotive and construction sectors.The KeepSafe costs £9.50p or £8 each if you want more than ten, and can be ordered from the Keepsafe website and can also be made to order as branded versions as well.keepsafe sylatech Charlie Breese estate aents June 2, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
