Wall Street hails better jobless claims

first_img Share whatsapp REPORTS of shorter jobless queues in the United States gave Wall Street some much-needed cheer yesterday after poor housing market and durable goods figures earlier this week heightened fears of a double-dip recession.Initial jobless claims for state unemployment benefits fell 31,000 to a seasonally-adjusted 473,000 last week, far fewer than the 490,000 that the market had been expecting. The better-than-expected data boosted shares and helped the US dollar to gain ground against the yen as traders moved out of safe-haven assets and bought back into the dollar. “No one was bullish on the labour market, but it was not as bearish as some people had thought. Our call is still that we are not heading toward a double-dip,” said Thomas Simons, a New York-based economist at Jefferies.Although traders welcomed the less bearish jobs data, analysts said the claims are still much too high to indicate a substantial shift in what remains a weak labour market.Analysts also pointed to the four-week average of new claims, which is considered to be a more reflective measure of the underlying trends in the US jobs market. This rose 3,250 to 486,750, which is the highest number since late November.The outlook for August’s headline unemployment rate, which will be published next Friday, is still extremely weak. On average, US economists forecast 110,000 layoffs, mostly Census-related. This would put the jobless rate at 9.7 per cent. FAST FACTS | A BAD WEEK FOR US DATABoth new and existing home sales fell at the sharpest monthly pace in July since records began in 1963. Durable goods orders were weak, supported only by a rise in commercial aircraft orders.

ARC prepares for redundancies as FOBT stake cut nears

first_imgHorse racing Arena Racing Company (ARC) has confirmed that compulsory redundancies are likely as the UK racecourse operator looks to mitigate the impact of betting shop closures resulting from the decision to slash fixed odds betting terminal (FOBT) stakes to £2. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 30th January 2019 | By contenteditor ARC prepares for redundancies as FOBT stake cut nears Arena Racing Company (ARC) has confirmed that compulsory redundancies are likely as the UK racecourse operator looks to mitigate the impact of betting shop closures resulting from the decision to slash fixed odds betting terminal (FOBT) stakes to £2 (€2.29/$2.62).ARC estimating that around 1,000 licensed betting offices will be closed as a result of the decision to cut maximum stakes from £100 to £2, it has told staff that it will be forced to reduce its headcount.The closures are expected to significantly impact media rights revenue, which expected to fall by up to £60m this year.The racecourse operator was unwilling to share any information on how many positions it expected to cut. It currently employs around 650 permanent staff, and thousands more across its 16 UK racetracks.ARC has already reduced its executive contribution to prize money for the horse racing industry in 2019, with its prize budget for the year set at £15.3m, down 13% from the £17.5m allocated for prizes in 2018. This is expected to impact 3,406 races across its portfolio.At the time ARC chief executive Martin Cruddace said the business could not continue to maintain its executive contribution to prize money, and predicted that the impact of the closures would be felt in the racing industry for years to come.The move to cut maximum FOBT, or B2 machine, stakes from £100 to £2 is set to come into force from April 1, after the UK government was forced to push forward its original plans to bring in the stake cut from October 2019 after MPs rebelled against the perceived delay. It will be accompanied by a 6% rise in remote gaming duty to 21% of gross revenue.The Association of British Bookmakers has predicted that as many as 4,500 shops will be closed due to the cut, with 21,000 jobs at risk as a result.

They usually achieve this by buying an undervalued stock and resisting the urge to sell, even when the financial markets are in turmoil. This can be a tough concept for new investors to grasp, but the reason is simple — compound interest works wonders.What is compound interest?Compounding is the power of earning interest on your investment, and as that investment grows, so does the amount paid (earning interest on interest), compounding the starting pot exponentially. This is way more powerful than it first seems, even though a buy-and-hold strategy may not seem lucrative at first. But I think its beauty lies in its simplicity and perceived ability to achieve the impossible.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…For example, if you take 1p and multiply its value every day for a month, by day 30, you will have over £5.3m.That is a crude example of the power of exponential compounding, but it illustrates how the acceleration of wealth occurs towards the end of a long period. Following this premise, stocks that pay dividends, which are reinvested to accumulate more shares, enjoy a similar trajectory.This explains why dividends have always been the lifeblood of a value investor’s portfolio. Unfortunately, the pandemic has thrown a spanner in the works, resulting in 445 London listed companies cancelling, cutting, or suspending their dividend payments in recent months.Is value investing a wise strategy?As there is no sign of a quick recovery from the Covid-19 situation, it is unlikely many of these dividends will be reinstated quickly. So, is value investing still a wise strategy to follow in these times?I believe it is. Financial markets have always been subject to peaks and troughs, but the overall trend has moved upwards. Of course, past performance is not a definitive guide to future performance, but as long as there is a stock market, I think there will be listed companies enjoying long-term growth and expansion. With that in mind, this is a great time to buy into stocks that are currently undervalued and are likely to recover with time. Some companies with a reduced dividend still offer a decent yield. If it looks like a company can sustain the headwinds and eventually recover, this could be a great time to buy.  Set and forgetFocusing on the big picture and ignoring the short-term landscape is the key to building long-term wealth. If you invest a lump sum with dividend reinvestment activated, it will eventually accumulate. For example, if you invest £1,000 and add no additional capital, but reinvest the dividends at a rate of 5%, your final sum after 40 years will be over £7,000.If you do the same, but also invest an extra £100 a month, your final total will be over £155,000.If you increase the interest rate to 11%, the above scenarios will increase the final total to more than £65k and £804k, respectively. The more you can afford to invest and the higher the interest rate, the better your investment will perform. If you want to get rich and retire early, I think you should follow in the footsteps of stock market billionaires. Follow a value investing strategy that takes full advantage of the power of compound interest.last_img read more

Link between domestic violence and mass murder

first_imgAfter Devin P. Kelley murdered 26 people and wounded 20 others in a Texas church on Nov. 5,  the media reported studies showing a clear correlation between mass murders and domestic violence.Kelley had been found guilty of kicking, beating, choking and constantly threatening his first spouse with a loaded gun (with which he also fractured his toddler stepson’s skull) in an Air Force court-martial in 2012.  He was sentenced to a year in military prison and given a bad conduct discharge in 2014.Over the intervening years Kelley was repeatedly investigated for violence against women and even charged with sexually assaulting and raping a woman. He was also known to brutally attack his dog. What precipitated his carrying out the assault at the church using a military style semi-automatic rifle was an argument with his current mother-in-law who was a member there.However, because of the Lautenberg Amendment passed in 1997, Kelley should have been prohibited from purchasing or possessing guns and ammunition due to his domestic violence conviction. But the Air Force — whether through deliberate neglect or routine omission — failed to record his conviction in the FBI National Crime Information Center database. Those statistics are used by the National Instant Check System to flag prohibited purchases and lead to follow-up investigations. So Kelley slipped through the cracks and was free to act out his cruel, misdirected rage.There is a glaringly consistent pattern of domestic violence by mass killers that has not been reported until now.  This applies to Omar Mateen, who killed 49 people and wounded 58 at the Orlando Pulse nightclub in June 2016; Tamerian Tsarnaev, whose bomb at the Boston Marathon in April 2013 killed three and injured 264; and Adam Lanza, who killed his mother before entering the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., where he killed 2o children between the ages of 6 and 7 and six adults in December 2012. Nine of the 10 deadliest mass killings in the U.S. in the past 50 years were perpetrated by men with histories of domestic violence. (Village Voice, Nov. 8)A 2014 study by Everytown for Gun Safety showed that 59 percent of the 100-plus mass shootings (where four or more people were killed)  in the U.S. between January 2009 and June 2014 involved the murder of an intimate partner or family member.A deadly pattern of misogynyYet it took the tragedy in a Texas church on a Sunday morning to expose the deadly connection between mass murder and age-old misogyny — one of the pillars of capitalism that drives U.S. society.While such statistics have been around since the 1990s, they are not well-known, even by those who follow the movement for women’s liberation. It took years of struggle, beginning in the 1970s when women first set up battered women’s shelters, to see that the federal Violence Against Women Act was passed in 1994 and updated in 2013 to include same-sex relationships and visas for battered immigrants. However, the VAWA is woefully inadequate and viciously racist in how it is currently applied.According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 1 in 3 women have been physically abused by an intimate partner during their lifetime. Every day three women are killed by male intimate partners in the U.S. Half of all women murdered in this country are killed by men they know intimately.The critical factor is if there is a gun in the home. According to a study published by the U.S. Department of Justice in 2004, which compared abused women who were murdered by a partner and those who survived partner abuse, the presence of a gun more than triples the risk of death in a domestic violence situation.Police families lead in domestic violenceIronically, which families have the highest rate of domestic abuse? According to two studies cited by the National Center for Women and Policing, at least 40 percent of families headed by police experience domestic violence in contrast to 10 percent of other families. The NCWP states: “Victims of police family violence typically fear that the responding officers will side with their abuser and fail to properly investigate or document the crime.”The 2012 jailing of Marissa Alexander, an African-American mother of three, for firing a warning shot at her abusive spouse who was threatening her life, is Exhibit A of why that is not a paranoid fear and how the VAWA can be turned upside down.While here are many socioeconomic conditions and widely accepted cultural behaviors that lead to domestic abuse, in addition to racist, gendered and class oppression, there is no question that the solution will not come under capitalism. In fact, if the predator in chief in the White House has his way, domestic abuse and its link to mass killings will only increase. In the first round of proposed budget cuts, Trump put 25 grants exploring ways to prevent violence against women on the chopping block.But the good news is that the current spotlight on domestic violence and mass murders coincides with an upsurge in activism against sexual harassment and misconduct in the workplace. They are two sides of the same patriarchal coin.  A coin that needs to be tossed into the cesspool of sexist history, along with all other manifestations of toxic capitalism.This is the first of several articles about domestic violence in the U.S.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
