While institutions realise they have been helped by an improving trading environment, they argue they have made strenuous efforts to shrink their balance sheets and sell off non-essential assets.S&P said a sustained upturn in UK banking performance remained “far from certain” despite a series of forecast-smashing results earlier in August. Stronger players Barclays and HSBC generated pre-tax gains of £4bn and £7bn respectively, while state-owned Lloyds Banking Group earned £1.6bn and Royal Bank of Scotland made a profit of £1.1bn.But the fortunes of banks are closely tied to an uncertain economy, S&P said, with several lenders still deeply reliant on government-guaranteed wholesale funding and in need of further refinancing in the coming years.The report concludes that the future credit ratings of British banks are likely to largely remain out of the hands of their management teams. S&P’s key concern is government economic policy, which it expects to squeeze incomes.Analysts wrote: “While a range of management actions have contributed to the improved performance, in our view, the more important contributory factors were the developments beyond the control of banks’ management… We expect economic and market developments that are largely beyond the control of banks’ management teams will continue to disproportionately influence UK bank ratings throughout the remainder of 2010.”Angela Knight, chief executive of the British Bankers’ Association, said: “The UK banks have done substantial capital raisings and have been repairing their balance sheets, writing off bad loans and so on. That has been widely recognised – a lot of work has taken place.”A source close to one of the part-nationalised banks emphasised the efforts being made by Lloyds and RBS’ management teams to shed non-core units to comply with European Union rules on accepting state aid. RBS has sold its share of a commodities trading joint venture, Sempra, to JPMorgan and offloaded 318 high street branches to Santander.“Banks are working on their core businesses too, trying to attract more deposits,” the source said. last_img read more

French Open : Djokovic through to quarterfinals, Rublev & Tsistsipas also…

French Open 2020: Stefanos Tsitsipas and Andrey Rublev advance to their 1st Roland Garros quarter-finalsGreek tennis star Stefanos Tsitsipas took down No.18 seed Grigor Dimitrov 6-3, 7-6 (9), 6-2 to make it to his first Roland Garros quarter-finals.Along with it, he has gone on to create history of sorts as he is the first Greek player, man or woman, to reach the French Open quarter-finals.He will now square off with Russian Andrey Rublev, for the second time in 10 days. Just last Sunday, the two players had met at the finals of the Hamburg Open, a day prior to the start of Roland Garros and the Russian had beaten Tsitsipas in three sets.On Monday, however, Tsitsipas was just too good for the Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov. The 22-year-old converted 3 out of 12 break points and won 71 per cent of the points on both his first and second serve en route to a two-hour 26-minute victory.Speaking after the game, he said, “I felt comfortable and I think playing Grigor, he can be very unpredictable, he has a very good game, so coming into the match you don’t really know what to expect.“We have a similar style of play, so I knew if I can be as aggressive as possible and play with forehand, use my serve to create opportunities, they’re eventually going to come. That was a very high quality of tennis from both of us.”Andrey Rublev had to fight it outHis opponent in the quarter-final, Rublev had to show more fight as he triumphed over Hungarian Marton Fucsovics 6-7 (4), 7-5, 6-4, 7-6 (3).Rublev battled for nearly four hours before leaping into the Roland-Garros quarter-finals for the first time in his career.Rublev is now on a nine-match winning streak and he’s through to a second consecutive Grand Slam quarter-final, having reached the same stage at the US Open last month.“I expected a match exactly like this. I expected it to be really, really tough. I’ve played him two times before. In Davis Cup I lost to him in five sets, so I knew it was going to be really tough. But in the end I’m really happy I won today,” the Russian said. Bengaluru S. Tsitsipas (5) beat G.Dimitrov (18) – 6-3, 7-6, 6-2A.Rublev (13) beat M.

The Sirius Minerals share price is falling, but it’s this FTSE 100 stock’s 8.2% dividend yield I like

More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. There are fresh developments in the Sirius Minerals (LSE: SXX) story. Last week, hedge fund Odey Asset Management bought a 1.3% stake in the challenged polyhalite miner. It subsequently urged the FTSE 100 multi-commodity miner Anglo American to increase its bid price for a potential SXX acquisition. Odey has now increased its share in SXX to 1.51%. This gives it greater weight in the shareholders’ vote next week that will decide if AAL’s offer price of 5.5p a share is acceptable or not. Assessing what’s next for SXX The possibility of the shareholder vote going against AAL’s current bid has increased. This in turn means that the likelihood of SXX going into administration in the next few months has risen as well. After its alternative funding proposal failed earlier this month, the Sirius board had cautioned investors of this outcome if they chose not to vote in favour of AAL’s offer. 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…With fresh question marks on the company’s future along with the stock markets’ fall this week, Sirius Minerals’ share price has fallen. As I write, it’s trading 11% below AAL’s offer price.  This may look like a tempting, if risky gamble, if we were looking to make a quick buck. But let’s not go there. I think there are enough gains to be made from safer stocks that are trading at significant discounts thanks to the latest sell-off in the stock markets. A high dividend yield Among mining stocks alone, one example is the FTSE 100 Anglo-Australian miner Rio Tinto (LSE: RIO). It has a high 8.2% dividend yield right now. It also increased the ordinary dividend payout by 29% from last year, making it even more attractive to me.   Note that its total dividend has actually fallen from 2018. This is because RIO paid a big special dividend on account of divestment in 2018, that led to the increase in total payout. It paid a special dividend in 2019 as well, but it was smaller than the one in 2018. I’m not terribly worried about that, however, because the dividend yield estimates don’t take the special dividends into account in any case, only the ordinary one. Despite that, RIO has a high yield.  In fact, if I add the special dividend of around 50p per share, which was paid along with the interim dividend, then the yield rises to an even higher 9.5%. I think the key takeaways from this are that RIO’s yield is worth investor consideration and that there’s a possibility of even higher passive income because it may just pay another special dividend.  But dividends aren’t the only reason I like Rio Tinto. Since 2016, its share price has seen a consistent rise, which isn’t a trend all miners can boast of. Moreover, it ended up discovering lithium deposits recently when it went looking for gold. This could bode well for the future, as electric vehicles’ demand increases overtime. I think RIO has enough going for it to be a winning stock in the future.                                    Image source: Getty Images. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Manika Premsingh owns shares of Sirius Minerals.

Six Nations wrap: The Alternative awards 2015

first_img Award for the best use of social media – #FinnocentAs Dan Biggar, arch proponent of the ‘kick and collect’ took to the air, Finn Russell, turned, like a deer caught in headlights, before the Welshman took a tumble face first over his shoulder. Yellow card, referee Glen Jackson called. Not bloody fair the Scots crowd countered, ‘he had his eyes on the ball’.The indignation ratcheted up several notches when Russell was suspended for two weeks, leading to the obligatory hashtag #Finnocent to whistle round Twitter faster than a Kim Kardashian cleavage shot. To no avail, the ban was upheld and Russell missed the Italy game.Award for best supporting role – Vincent DebatyMorgan Freeman, George Clooney, Christian Bale. Best supporting roles at the Oscars, sure, but none of them can hold a candle to Big Vincent Debaty. Not since Graham Price gave chase in Paris, in 1975, had a member of the front row union gone so far above and beyond the call of duty.The 6ft 3in, 20st loosehead, chuntered like a moose on gasoline after fleet-footed wing Noa Nakaitaci as he sped down the wing and as the Fijian was pulled down by Mike Brown and Ben Youngs, he took the pass to plop over the line. Merci, Vincent. Merci.Award for the best impression of a crash test dummy – Jules PlissonPoor fresh-faced whipper-snapper Jules Plisson. The Stade Francais fly-half still looks like his mother made his baguette before carting him off to Twickenham to face Les Anglais. She didn’t warn him about the very big boy with the red rose on his chest by the name of Courtney.Like a Great White, the 6ft 7in lock lined up his prey, accelerated and drove unsuspecting Jules into the ground, with his head shaking like a rag doll. A more legitimate example of physical violence we’ve yet to see. Plisson lay in a heap, while his own big boys, led by Yoann Maestri, ran in to deliver some retribution to Courtney. One of the most visceral moments of the tournamentAward for the best impersonation of a game of rugby – Italy 0-29 FranceMy eyes, my eyes! Please stop this. I beg you. If martians were to land on earth and be shown the Italy v France game, they’d wonder how rugby had a 150-year history, such was the torpor in a game with no redeeming features. Thirty-seven (THIRTY-SEVEN!) handling errors countless reset scrums, a paucity of skill. It was just wretched. Imagine having to commentate on that. Not one for the highlights reel, more a flame-thrower. UNWORTHY OF VIDEO ACKNOWLEDGEMENT It’s time to draw a line under what has been a rip-roaring Six Nations and before memories of Supersonic Saturday recede, dish out some much-deserved gongs Award for the best in-flight landing – Robbie HenshawIn a game of brilliant Irish execution, the only try of the game, was a piece of surgical precision that put paid to England’s Grand Slam hopes. Conor Murray looked right, raised his right index finger to give Henshaw an indication that it was going up and dinked a delicious chip over the English defence.The ball hung for a second before dropping into the dead-ball area. Alex Goode lost his bearings as Henshaw took to the air, caught the ball and with the dexterity of a 15st ballerina, managed to land inches from touch and ground the ball. It was a worthy winning try, alright.Award for the best impersonation of a nightclub – Millennium StadiumThey like to ramp things up at the Millennium Stadium. With the crisp Cardiff air seeping into the seething cauldron, before the Wales-England game, organisers decided to blow the metaphorical roof off with a pyrotechnics and lights show that wouldn’t have been out of place in a Katy Perry concert (not that I’ve been…honest).Dance music reverberated around the stadium for what seemed like an interminable amount of time while Wales and England bickered in the tunnel. England went on to win 21-16. Before the Wales v Ireland game, the disco was conspicuous by its absence. Funny that.Award for best hit on an inanimate object – James HaskellWith Wales on the ropes like a punch drunk boxer, and the English running amok in Wales’ capital in a way reminiscent of the days Will Greenwood and co. used to plunder and score tries for fun, big old James Haskell took the ball on the hoof, 10 metres from the line.The Welsh defenders, Leigh Halfpenny Alex Cuthbert and Taulupe Faletau were able to knock Haskell’s route one trajectory and he pirouetted off balance headfirst into the uprights, before bouncing back into the field of play. Such was the ferocity of the encounter that statisticians lost count of the number of tacklers. When the figures were totted up, Wales had smashed the previous tackles record by 38, racking up 250 tackles, or one every 20 seconds. That’s bravery for you.center_img https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPRGSVnyrr4Award for the best communicator – Nigel OwensA self-confessed stand-up, Mynyddcerrig’s finest was again trotting out the best one-liners in the epic England v France match. One moment that has done the rounds on social media, is when our Nige, raised his hand for an infringement and Chris Robshaw the England captain tried to get in his ear to gain a small territorial advantage.“I’m not moving”, but Sir,” it was over there”, countered Robshaw.  Arm still aloft, Owens raised an eyebrow and said ‘Christopher’ in a head masterly tone. ‘Sorry, sir’ and Robshaw backtracked, head down. ‘Thank you’. Mike Brown was similarly put in his place. A clear front-runner for the Rugby World Cup final.Award for most outrageous brain fade – Noa NakaitaciEngland were chasing points but France clearly hadn’t read the script. With the game finely poised at 7-8 and France in possession, the ball was recycled to the Stade Francais flyer Nakaitaci. He sped in unopposed from 40m and with no defenders in sight, started to run under the posts.The nearest English defender, Ben Youngs, exerted a little pressure and Nakaitaci dotted down after he had appeared to have stepped beyond his deadball line. Nakaitaci waited, praying the replay would show he’d grounded the ball correctly. He had, by millimetres. Oh mon dieu.Award for worst skullduggery of the tournament – Pascal PapeThe French pack are not renowned for their interest in knitting, dominoes and more placid pursuits. Given an inch, they’ll resort to the dark arts, more often than not. Down to Ireland and losing patience, at a ruck, all 18st of Pape ran at speed and dropped his left knee, what he thought was covertly, into Jamie Heaslip’s back to leave him in agony.Pape was shown a yellow card and given a 10-week ban, despite offering a mea culpa on Twitter.  Fortunately Heaslip has remarkable restorative powers and three broken vertebrae didn’t stop him playing a key part in Ireland’s Six Nations title.The ‘Thierry Henry’ award for alienating an Irish nation – Yoann HugetAs the denouement to Supersonic Saturday reached its crescendo and the clock went into the red, the entire population of Ireland sat open-mouthed as Yoann Huget tossed his shaggy Gallic mop to tap and go UNDER HIS OWN POSTS. Maths may not have been a strong point for La Huge as they were 20 points down but he was having none of it.Sadly, a wave of English shirts enveloped the recipient of the Huget pass, 24st, erm flyer Uini Atonio, and within seconds they were fighting for their lives. Fortunately for France, a later infringement saw Rory Kockott hoof the ball into Row Z to end the game. Madness, but how we’ve missed you France, you crazy cats.Award for passable impression of red brick wall – WalesIn the second-half of the Wales v Ireland game, between the 49th and 56th minute, Wales endured a 49-phase defensive set against a relentless Ireland who repeatedly drove into the heart of the Welsh 22. When Ireland failed to break the line, the guttural cheer from the Welsh crowd caused ripples in the River Taff. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

On this day in history: September 29th, 1954The “Say Hey” kid shocks the IndiansFrom The History ChannelOn September 29, 1954, Willie Mays, centerfielder for the New York Giants, makes an amazing over-the-shoulder catch of a fly ball hit by Cleveland Indians first baseman Vic Wertz to rob Wertz of extra bases in Game 1 of the 1954 World Series. The catch has gone down as one of the greatest in the history of baseball.Willie Howard Mays was born May 6, 1931, in Westfield, Alabama. The “Say Hey Kid” learned baseball from his father, who played semi-professionally with a team from his steel mill. Willie joined the steel mill team at age 14, and then began his professional career at 16 with the Birmingham Black Barons of the Negro Southern League. He played home games for the Barons from 1948 to 1950, skipping road trips during the school year so he could attend high school. Upon graduation he was signed by the New York Giants, and made his debut at the Polo Grounds on May 25, 1951. Mays went hitless in his first 12 at-bats, hitting his first big league homer in his 13th. That season, he was named Rookie of the Year and helped the Giants to the National League pennant.Willie MaysIn 1952, Mays was drafted into the Army. The Mays-less Giants barely missed the pennant in 1952, then felt his absence more acutely in 1953, when they finished the season with a 70-84 record.Upon his return in 1954, the Giants won the National League by five games over their archrivals, the Brooklyn Dodgers, and then met the Indians in the World Series. In the eighth inning of Game 1, with the score tied 2-2 and two runners on base, Indians first baseman Vic Wertz hit a fly ball 440 feet deep into center field. Mays turned, ran and then caught the ball over his shoulder with his back to the infield, before spinning and firing the ball back into the infield to keep the runners from advancing. The catch preserved the tie, and the Giants won the game on a home run by Dusty Rhodes in the 10th inning. When he was asked later about the catch, Mays famously replied, “I don’t rank ‘em, I just catch ‘em.” The Giants went on to sweep the 1954 World Series.Mays was named the National League MVP in 1954, and again in 1965. He played in a record 24 All-Star games, winning the All-Star MVP in 1963 and 1968. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1979. His base running, power, fielding, ability to hit for average and outstanding arm in the outfield made him the prototype “five-tool” player for whom baseball scouts search. Any argument over who deserves the title “greatest baseball player in history” has to include Willie Mays. Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Gov.

March 15, 2020 is the enrollment deadline for the 2019 crop year.Although more than 200,000 producers have enrolled to date, FSA anticipates 1.5 million producers will enroll for ARC and PLC. By enrolling soon, producers can beat the rush as the deadline nears.“FSA offices have multiple programs competing for the time and attention of our staff.  Because of the importance and complexities of the ARC and PLC programs; and to ensure we meet your program delivery expectations, please do not wait to start the enrollment process,” said FSA Administrator Richard Fordyce. “I cannot emphasize enough the need to begin the program election and enrollment process now. Please call your FSA county office and make an appointment soon to ensure your elections are made and contracts signed well ahead of the deadlines.”ARC and PLC provide financial protections to farmers from substantial drops in crop prices or revenues and are vital economic safety nets for most American farms.The programs cover the following commodities: barley, canola, large and small chickpeas, corn, crambe, flaxseed, grain sorghum, lentils, mustard seed, oats, peanuts, dry peas, rapeseed, long grain rice, medium and short grain rice, safflower seed, seed cotton, sesame, soybeans, sunflower seed and wheat. Until March 15, producers who have not yet enrolled in ARC or PLC for 2019 can enroll for both 2019 and 2020 during the same visit to an FSA county office unless yield updates are requested. Additionally, farm owners have a one-time opportunity to update PLC payment yields that take effect beginning with crop year 2020. If the owner accompanies the producer to the office, the yield update and enrollments may be completed during the same office visit.last_img read more
