The country’s finance chief has called on the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to “level up” and to consider substantially expanding its loan portfolio, to effectively assist developing countries and to be more responsive to critical needs.

Carlos Dominguez, Department of Finance secretary, said at Pay Day Champion the 45th ADB Annual Meeting Governors’ Seminar held virtually yesterday the ADB must effectively assist developing economies to bounce back as fast as the developed countries.

“However, this cannot be achieved if the bank maintains a business-as-usual approach. As I have suggested long before COVID-19 struck, the ADB must continue reinventing itself and realigning its programs to meet new realities and to stay relevant amidst the fast-changing landscape,” Dominguez said.

“To be responsive to critical needs, the ADB must level up. Specifically, there is a need for the bank to seriously consider substantial expansion of its loan portfolio in the next five-year period,” he added.

Dominguez said this will effectively support its member countries’ recovery, even if this brings forward the need for a capital increase.

Meanwhile, in an earlier event, the ADB’s top official said developing countries, such as the Philippines, are urged to reduce dependence on external financing and focus more on domestic resources such as through tax revenues.

Masatsugu Asakawa, ADB president, said in the opening event for the 45th ADB Annual Meeting the tax-to-gross domestic product (GDP) in the Asia Pacific region is relatively low compared with the other parts of the world.

“There’s much room for them (developing countries) to increase tax revenue by restructuring their tax policy or enhancing tax administration capacity,” Asakawa said in an interview posted by the ADB online.

“It will be a good idea for… developing countries (to) try to rely on more and more domestic resources, by reducing their dependency on external finance. Domestic resource means taxation, tax revenue,” he added.

In the Philippines, the tax effort in 2020 was recorded at 13.93 percent, down from 14.49 percent a year ago, as collections from revenue-generating agencies suffered last year due to the economic impact of the pandemic.

New ruling highlights risks of paying secret commission https://bellowingark.org/new-ruling-highlights-risks-of-paying-secret-commission/ https://bellowingark.org/new-ruling-highlights-risks-of-paying-secret-commission/#respond Wed, 07 Apr 2021 23:16:12 +0000 https://bellowingark.org/new-ruling-highlights-risks-of-paying-secret-commission/ A judgment by the Court of Appeal yesterday made it much more likely that borrowers could be compensated if the commission paid by the lender to their broker was not fully disclosed to them, according to a law firm.

A judgment by the Court of Appeal yesterday made it much more likely that borrowers could be compensated if the commission paid by the lender to their broker was not fully disclosed to them, according to a law firm.

Moore Barlow represented the owner of Commercial First Business created loan books (currently in liquidation) in his unsuccessful appeal against two conflicting earlier decisions.

In both cases, the borrowers were in default and then contested whether their loans were enforceable due to commissions they did not know existed.

One of the earlier cases ruled in favor of the lender on the grounds that there was no contract with the broker and the borrower had not paid a fee and therefore could not ‘s’ reasonably expect undivided loyalty ”.

In this case, it was argued that the borrower would have been aware of the possibility that the broker was receiving a commission, even though the amount had not been disclosed.

In the other contentious case, the court ruled in favor of the borrower, ruling that there was no need for a “fiduciary” relationship between the broker and the borrower for there to be an obligation of disclosure of the commission.

As yesterday’s Court of Appeals judgment (Wood v Commercial First Business Ltd & Ors 2021) went against the owner of the loan book, the law firm says it provides much needed clarification to industry.

It confirms that the broker and the lender are likely to be liable in cases where the commission is not disclosed, which means the mortgage may be unenforceable.

In such cases, the mortgage could be canceled, which would mean attempting to put both the lender and the borrower back into the situation they would have been in if the loan had not been taken out initially.

This does not mean that the mortgage is written off, but it could mean that the lender has to repay the borrower all the completed monthly repayments plus interest and, in turn, the borrower has to repay the lender the amount owed. advance more interest, explains the law firm. .

Susannah Marsh, Financial Services Litigation Partner at Moore Barlow, says: “This ruling will make it more difficult, but not impossible, in future cases to prove that a broker did not owe their client a duty to provide information. and impartial advice, which in turn will expose the broker and lender to applicable civil remedies.

“While the payment of commissions is commonplace in the lending industry, the appeal judgment undeniably highlights a vulnerability for lenders who paid commissions to brokers without notifying the client.

“The positive point we can take is that the ruling brings clarity and greater certainty to this complex area of ​​law.

“We now know that undisclosed commissions leave lenders and brokers vulnerable to borrower claims and in cases where the commission amount is not disclosed by the broker or lender, there is a substantial risk that a court cancels the loan subject to the borrower being able to give a counter-restitution. “

In these types of cases, the counter-restitution likely means that the borrower is able to repay the amount originally borrowed less any fees or gains made by the lender or broker.

Marsh adds, “In the circumstances where the borrower cannot give a return, the loan cannot be canceled.

“Therefore, we now need to focus on fixing these issues and agreeing on the numbers, rather than getting bogged down in costly and time-consuming arguments about defining the broker / borrower relationship.”

TORONTO – The record for Canada’s main stock index continued on a calm trading day on Wednesday as investors took a break between the end of the first quarter and the earnings season starting next week.

“It was a time when investors are just waiting to see what happens next because the first quarter was definitely volatile,” said Greg Taylor, chief investment officer of Purpose Investments.

“Everything is really getting ready to see if this results season will be as good as everyone is expecting and I think it should be out of the ordinary given the comps year over year.”

The second quarter is expected to be significantly better than a year ago, when the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic began to hurt business results, as workers stayed at home and lockdowns began.

Investors are also watching if central banks are starting to pull away from gas in terms of stimulus, which appears to be in no rush to do so.

The minutes released after the recent Federal Reserve meeting reinforced this view, with the US central bank ready to let things unfold as members believe inflation increases are more transient than structural.

“This should be good for risky assets and I’m confident in the market for the next few months thinking we’re going to get a good run as the recovery continues to come,” Taylor said in an interview.

While the stock markets “might run for the next few months,” he said it might be harder to make money in the second half of the year as people start to fear things have gotten ahead and as central banks begin to relax emergency measures.

Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase, was also optimistic about the US economic outlook in his annual letter which is closely followed by market watchers.

“What he’s saying is that there is a positive dynamic, there is so much money out there that it has to go somewhere and that could keep the bull market going longer than everyone else. think so, ”Taylor said.

The S & P / TSX Composite Index gained 24.93 points to a record close of 19,129.07 after setting an intraday high of 19,177.96.

In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average rose 16.02 points to 33,446.26. The S&P 500 Index was up 6.01 points to a record close of 4,079.95, while the Nasdaq composite was down 9.54 points to 13,688.84.

Seven of the TSX’s top 11 sectors rose, but none rose more than 0.77%.

A 3.7% gain by Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. helped consumer staples while Gildan Activewear Inc. rose 3% to help discretionary consumers.

The day also saw shares of MDA Inc. start trading after its IPO. They closed 3.9 percent at $ 14.55.

Healthcare lagged the most, losing 2.4%, with Aurora Cannabis Inc. and Aphria Inc. losing 6.4 and 6% respectively.

Energy and materials have also lost ground.

Energy fell despite rising crude oil prices, as investors worried if pandemic lockdowns in Canada and Europe could hurt demand. There are also fears that the prospects of a new nuclear deal with Iran may bring more oil to the market, Taylor said.

Ultimately, energy should have a good year after being overlooked by so many investors, he said.

“Companies have restructured and are much more profitable at these levels and if oil starts to hold over $ 50, over $ 60, I think those companies are still set for a really positive 2021.”

Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. fell 1.6%.

The May crude contract rose 44 cents to US $ 59.77 per barrel and the May natural gas contract rose 6.4 cents to US $ 2.52 per mmBTU.

The Canadian dollar traded at 79.26 US cents compared to 79.62 US cents on Tuesday.

Materials fell due to the appreciation of the US dollar which reduced gold prices. The June gold contract fell US $ 1.40 to US $ 1,741.60 per ounce and the May copper contract fell 6.2 cents to US $ 4.05 per pound.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published on April 7, 2021.

Secret billionaire Kenneth Dart places $ 6.7 billion bet on tobacco stocks

(Bloomberg) – It has taken decades for sustainable investing to become mainstream, but now every week one giant investor after another is announcing their commitment to ESG. Kenneth Dart will not join this club. The billionaire is heir to a fortune of plastic cups. Over two decades ago, he renounced his US citizenship and moved to the Caribbean, becoming the largest real estate owner in the Cayman Islands. For years he invested in troubled sovereign debt, with former Argentine President Cristina Kirchner calling him a “vulture”. And over the past six months, 66-year-old Dart has quietly racked up one of the classic investments in sin. Through a Cayman Islands vehicle called Spring Mountain Investments, Dart acquired a 7% stake in British American Tobacco which is now worth $ 6 billion. Spring Mountain last month unveiled a separate $ 634 million position in rivals Imperial Brands. The Financial Times first reported on the company’s investments in the tobacco sector. A small portion of the positions were entered into using total return swaps, the documents said. These types of swaps were at the center of the March implosion of the Archegos Capital Management family office, causing billions in bank losses.Tobacco WagerSpring Mountain is the latest in a series of entities that advertising shy Dart has used to buy titles. He previously created Portfolio Services Ltd., Seneca Investments, EM Ltd., Eastern Capital and LBS Investments. In recent years, they have been used to invest in obscure biotech stocks that represent a fraction of his fortune, estimated at $ 6.6 billion by the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Dart’s bet on tobacco goes against one of the hottest trends in finance: investing in companies that focus on environmental, social and governance factors, which in theory means that companies have long-term sustainable prospects. The tobacco industry has been the antithesis of ESG for decades. investment. Dominated by a few corporate giants, companies operate in a market that risks being canceled out by regulation or that customers give up – or die – from this habit.Michael Bloomberg, founder and majority owner of Bloomberg News, the parent company Bloomberg LP, was Although a larger group of investors are avoiding stocks, this may create opportunities for those less concerned about the societal outcomes of their portfolios. Before worries about the new regulations, especially in the United States, began to deter investors, according to Duncan Fox, analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence. Over the past five years, the MSCI World Tobacco Index has fallen 32%. It’s punished long-term holders, but it has contributed to the dividends that stocks pay. British American Tobacco and Imperial Brands have dividend yields above 8%. Investors can also overestimate regulatory risk – after all companies have the experience of adapting and taking advantage of new regulations – and there is potential growth in alternative tobacco products and new cannabis. Still, there’s a reason why so many investors shy away from stocks. “Smoking has been on the decline for five decades due to what we call ESG compression: pressures from societal attitudes, regulation and taxation,” Citigroup Inc. analyst Adam Spielman wrote in March. According to Jefferies analyst Owen Bennett, in 10 to 20 years there may be no more smokers in many markets. He has earned billions through companies such as Salomon Inc., Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp., and in distressed sovereign debt, according to a Businessweek profile from 1995. Trained as a chemical engineer, he s’ has long focused on its investment portfolio rather than on the family business. , Dart Container, where it no longer has a role or ownership. Dart Container, based in Mason, Michigan, is run by his brother, Robert Dart. In recent years it has seemed to move from markets to real estate development, primarily in the Cayman Islands, where it has made its home.

US addresses boycott of Beijing Winter Olympics https://bellowingark.org/us-addresses-boycott-of-beijing-winter-olympics/ https://bellowingark.org/us-addresses-boycott-of-beijing-winter-olympics/#respond Wed, 07 Apr 2021 23:14:16 +0000 https://bellowingark.org/us-addresses-boycott-of-beijing-winter-olympics/ The Biden administration launched the idea of ​​a boycott of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics to protest the persecution of Uyghurs in China’s Xinjiang province.

The Biden administration launched the idea of ​​a boycott of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics to protest the persecution of Uyghurs in China’s Xinjiang province.

Ned Price, spokesperson for the US State Department, said the boycott was an option “on the agenda” as the Biden administration discussed its approach to China and the Beijing Olympics with its officials. allies.

Asked at a press conference if the United States was discussing a joint boycott, Price said, “This is something we certainly want to discuss. . . A coordinated approach will not only be in our best interest, but also in the interest of our allies and partners. “

An official for a U.S. ally said the Biden administration had raised the idea during preliminary talks about the Beijing Olympics on several occasions, as part of broader talks on fighting China.

But the official stressed that there had been no detailed – or high-level – discussions of how allies would handle the event, or whether a boycott involved government delegations or a move to bar athletes to participate in the games. An official from a second U.S. ally also said there had been some preliminary discussions on a coordinated decision.

China is increasingly criticized in Xinjiang, where more than 1m of Muslim Uyghurs were held in internment camps. Last week, President Joe Biden officially called China’s policy in Xinjiang “genocideIn its State Department’s annual report on human rights.

After his remarks, Price written on twitter that “we have no announcement regarding the Beijing Olympics” and that the event was “far away”. A State Department official disputed that Price said the United States discussed a boycott. “We have not discussed and are not discussing a joint boycott with our allies and partners,” the official said.

The Olympics came under intense scrutiny as the United States and its allies took an increasingly tough stance on Beijing’s crackdown on Xinjiang. The United States last month imposed coordinated sanctions with the EU, UK and Canada on Chinese officials involved in shaping Xinjiang policy, triggering retaliation from Beijing.

John Katko, the top Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee, said the Biden administration’s decision underscored the “untenable reality” of hosting the games in China.

“The world is watching our next move,” Katko said. “It’s time to move the Olympics to a country that embodies democracy and the spirit of the Olympic Charter. The games simply cannot take place in China. “

The US Olympic and Paralympic Committee declared itself against any boycott on Monday. “They have been shown to have a negative impact on athletes without effectively tackling global issues,” he said. “We believe that the most effective course of action is for the governments of the world and of China to engage directly on human rights and geopolitical issues.”

The last boycott of the American team was that of the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow after the invasion of Afghanistan by the Soviet Union. The USOPC made the decision after pressure from Congress. The United States also staged a diplomatic boycott of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, to which Barack Obama did not send an official delegation.

The USOPC said Sarah Hirshland, its chief executive, spoke to the Biden administration about the state of preparations for the Tokyo Olympics this summer, but we didn’t know if they were discussing the Beijing Games. The International Olympic Committee, which oversees both events, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Games has meant that preparations for both events are proceeding simultaneously. The Beijing Olympics are scheduled to open in February 2022.

Sports governing bodies have been forced to adapt to the coronavirus pandemic ahead of the two Olympics, in some cases by postponing or rescheduling qualifying events.

In the United States, which regularly sends one of the biggest teams to the Summer and Winter Games, many sports determine their delegations through team selections, such as swimming and track and field. International travel restrictions have also made it more difficult for athletes in certain sports, such as figure skating, to participate in world competitions before the Beijing Games.

7 Internet of Things actions perfectly suited to our connected future

When you say Internet of Things (IoT), you may get different answers. I like to think of it as a matter of connection. These are devices that can connect to each other and to the Internet. And that provides users with the solutions that make our lives easier.

The most basic and ubiquitous example of an IoT device is the smartphone that many of us have with us at all times. But think about what it led to. Home assistants, security cameras, fitness apps, and more are all enabled by the Internet of Things.

The IoT took on even greater importance in the pandemic, as businesses had to find a way to keep their networks secure and viable even as their employees were dispersed remotely. This has created a demand for cutting edge and cloud computing solutions that are also being facilitated by the Internet of Things.

And yes, this is just the start. The growing need for data is fueling the demand for IoT solutions in areas such as autonomous vehicles.

But the good news is that this is an area that is still in a growth phase. And that means there is no shortage of companies you can find to trade in this industry. To get you started, we’ve prepared this special presentation that highlights seven of these companies and why we think they are worth adding to your portfolio.

As a rule of thumb, doubling your money in one year on a stock would give you serious bragging rights. But over the past year, we’ve seen many stocks quadruple or even five times investor money – especially stay at home. technological actions it skyrocketed whenever news suggested COVID-19 would keep us stuck in the house longer than expected.

Many of the household stocks that have generated breathtaking returns over the past year are coming back to earth. But these three stocks would have doubled your money in the past year, and they still have strong momentum.

Ally Financial

Loans are cyclical, so the past year has been pretty bad since financial stocks. But parts of Ally Financial (NYSE: ALLY), which focuses primarily on auto loans and leases, are up 185% year-over-year.

Although vehicle sales fell last year in April and May, they rebounded remarkably in the second half of 2020, with people avoiding ridesharing and public transportation due to the pandemic. In 2020, Ally made a record $ 19.3 billion in used vehicle loans. Total adjusted revenue reached $ 6.7 billion, a 5% increase from the previous year.

Meanwhile, Ally has set aside $ 1.4 billion for credit losses. Management said during the fourth quarter earnings call that they expect write-offs to peak in the third or fourth quarter of 2021. But in 2020, auto loan write-offs actually fell. from 32 basis points to 0.96%.

Ally still has decent growth potential outside of the vehicle finance space. Its Ally Home saw a 74% year-over-year increase in mortgage initiations – but with just $ 4.7 billion in home loans, it’s a smaller drop in market share , given booming refinancing activity and home sales. The total net assets of clients through its trading platform, Ally Invest, also increased by 71% in 2021.

Lowe’s

Both Lowe’s (NYSE: LOW) and his rival Home Depot (NYSE: HD) were gaining shares in the home. Home Depot is still the most profitable retailer. But only Lowe’s would have doubled your money last year. As of March 29, its shares were up 117%, compared to Home Depot’s 59%.

In the fourth quarter of 2020, Lowe’s comparable store sales increased 28.6% compared to the prior year period. Online sales soared 121%. But Home Depot has also seen similar growth. For its latest quarter, comps grew 25% year-over-year, while online sales increased 83%. The widespread surge in home improvement spending is unlikely to continue, as vaccinations become mainstream and people spend less on DIY projects once they can safely leave their homes.

Lowe’s is focused on gaining market share as the home improvement business contracts. In addition to making improvements to lowes.com and store layout, it is focusing more on its Pro offerings for professional entrepreneurs. According to Lowe’s 2020 Investor Factsheet, professional entrepreneurs only make up 20% to 25% of sales, but they make up about half of its estimated total market. Growth in this segment could pay off for Lowe’s as DIY sales slow down.

Target

Actions of Target (NYSE: TGT) are up 109% from a year ago, a gain significantly higher than the others retail stocks like Walmart and Amazon, which were up 25% and 62% respectively.

Like just about every retailer in 2020, Target saw digital sales explode in 2020. Online sales grew 145% – but what’s remarkable is that 95% of online sales are made in-store. , either by employees or drivers of Shipt, the delivery service Target acquired in 2017. Target estimates that in-store fulfillment is about 90% cheaper than shipping orders from a traditional warehouse. The retailer plans to add 30 to 40 small-format stores per year, which will put the chain within reach in areas that cannot accommodate a full store, such as around college campuses and in large urban areas.

Target recently made investors nervous by announcing plans to invest $ 4 billion in capital expenditures such as new stores, renovations and supply chain improvements for each of the next few years. But keep in mind that while other retailers have seen in-store traffic increase in 2020, Target has actually seen an increase in foot traffic.

The “target effect” – where customers visit stores for a few small purchases and leave with a basket full of items they never intended to buy – is notorious. While people can stock up on less as the pandemic subsides, Target expects them to spend more on things like clothing and beauty products.

Target’s house brands, such as its All in Motion womens sportswear line and Cat & Jack children’s clothing line, are hugely popular. Ten of its internal brands generated $ 1 billion or more in 2020. Its partnerships with brands like Ulta Beauty, Apple, and Disney is expected to continue to attract many customers to the stores.

While Target probably won’t double your money again in 2021, there are plenty of reasons to bet on both its digital strategy and its investment in physical stores.

This article represents the opinion of the writer, who may disagree with the “official” recommendation position of a premium Motley Fool consulting service. We are motley! Challenging an investment thesis – even one of our own – helps us all to think critically about investing and make decisions that help us become smarter, happier, and richer.

In 89% of these cases, stocks enjoyed a positive return one month later, with an average gain of 10%. From its current perch of $ 45.77, a move of similar magnitude would place ALLY at $ 50.35.

Premiums are reasonably priced at the moment, according to ALLY’s Schaeffer Volatility Index (SVI) of 38%, which sits above just 2% of last year’s readings. This indicates that options players are valuing relatively low volatility expectations – a boon for premium buyers.
