Fed loses bank disclosure appeal

first_imgMonday 23 August 2010 8:40 pm whatsapp Share The Federal Reserve will have to appeal to the Supreme Court if it wants to avoid having to disclose details of its emergency lending programmes to banks bailed out with taxpayer money during the financial crisis. The US Court of Appeals denied the Fed’s motion on Friday to rehear the case in which Bloomberg, the parent of Bloomberg News, and News Corp’s Fox News Network sought information on the US central bank’s emergency lending programmes that began in late 2007.

Osborne to soften blow of fuel costs

first_img GEORGE Osborne’s Budget will contain a raft of measures designed to mitigate the soaring cost of fuel. The chancellor has scrapped plans to raise air passenger duty (APD) for the fourth time in three years, City A.M. understands. He had been expected to increase the tax on holidaymakers and business travellers in line with the retail price index (RPI) measure of inflation.That would have brought the APD on a business class ticket to Australia to £179, a £9 increase. But with airlines already planning to raise their fuel surcharges in response to surging oil prices, the chancellor decided to remove the increase from Wednesday’s Budget. The decision to freeze APD at current levels – essentially a real-terms tax cut – will cost the Treasury around £150m, although Osborne could mitigate the cost by widening the APD net to include private and corporate jets. Meanwhile, Osborne is expected to scrap a planned above-inflation increase in fuel duty, which would have added up to 5p to a litre of petrol. Yesterday, he said he was “looking very carefully” at whether he could afford to “do something” about the duty hike. The chancellor is keen to neutralise attacks from Labour opponent Ed Balls, who has put rising fuel prices at the centre of an attack on the rising cost of living. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepedia center_img KCS-content Tags: NULL Sunday 20 March 2011 11:57 pm Osborne to soften blow of fuel costs Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

£5k to invest? I’d buy these 2 FTSE 100 stocks for a second income

first_img Image source: Getty Images. Buying FTSE 100 stocks with high dividend yields is one of the best ways to improve your income prospects.However, not all dividend stocks are created equal. Some have much better income credentials than others.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 that in mind, here are two companies that offer both high dividend yields today, and the potential for dividend growth over the long term.BHP GroupShares in mining conglomerate BHP (LSE: BHP) have some of the best income credentials in the FTSE 100.During the past few years, this enterprise has transformed itself. It used to be dependent on debt and wasted tens of billions of dollars on large mining projects, which didn’t produce attractive returns.This strategy ended up in a $6.4bn loss for the group in 2016. Since then, management has prioritised efficiency, cash generation, debt reduction and sensible growth.As a result of these efforts, BHP’s net debt has plummeted, and cash returns to investors have surged.At the time of writing, the stock supports a dividend yield of 6.3%. On top of this, shares in the mining conglomerate are trading at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 10.8. This seems to suggest that the stock offers a wide margin of safety at current levels.Moreover, in recent years the company has been distributing special dividends to investors if cash generation outperforms expectations. As such, there’s a good chance the total dividend yield could exceed current forecasts if BHP’s profits come in ahead of internal projections in its current financial year.RSA Insurance GroupThe other FTSE 100 stock that also stands out as an income investment is RSA Insurance Group (LSE: RSA).Just like BHP, this insurance group has been through a rough time. However, it has come out the other side with a much stronger balance sheet and a renewed focus on returning cash to investors, rather than chasing unprofitable growth.The stock currently offers a dividend yield of 4.2%. This could hit 5.2% next year, according to analysts’ current forecasts. Further, shares in the international insurance group are dealing at a P/E of 13.7 and PEG ratio of 0.8. These numbers imply shares in RSA could offer growth at a reasonable price for investors.There has also been some speculation that RSA could offload its international firms in 2020. The company has operations in Canada and Scandinavia, which give it some international diversification. These businesses are also significant contributors to the bottom line and growing steadily.Nevertheless, a sale would unlock capital, which would give management extra firepower to double down on RSA’s core UK market. The group could also return a significant amount of cash to shareholders in the event of a significant disposal.Therefore, considering RSA’s valuation, the stock’s dividend and potential for special payouts if disposals go ahead, it could be worth adding this company to your long-term income portfolio.

Michigan Poor People’s Campaign unites unions, communities

first_imgLansing, Mich. — The Michigan Poor People’s Campaign action on June 11 was the largest yet. Some 500 activists protested in Lansing, the state capital, around the themes of “Education, Living Wages, Jobs, Income and Housing.” An especially strong and dynamic contingent of mostly young African-American workers from the D-15 movement played a leading role in the demonstrations.The rallies at a church gathering spot and the Michigan Treasury Department, organized by the Moratorium Now Coalition and D-15, reflected a coming together of union and community activists. Speakers included disability rights activists Lisa Franklin from Warriors on Wheels and Baba Baxter. Helen Moore from the Vote No Takeover Coalition spoke on the education struggle.City retirees Yvonne Jones, representing Moratorium Now, and Donald Roberts, from the Detroit Active and Retired Employees Association, discussed the war on public workers, and especially retirees in Michigan. Shannon Kirkland from the Communications Workers spoke on a potential Midwest strike against AT&T, and a representative of the Lecturers Union discussed their contract battle at the University of Michigan.A United Auto Workers representative spoke on the fight of Colombian workers against General Motors. Jonathan Roberts rallied support for the One Fair Wage campaign, a referendum scheduled for a vote this November to lift the Michigan minimum wage for all low-wage workers and specifically to abolish the subminimum wage for restaurant servers.The direct action included a sit-in, resulting in a number of arrests at the Michigan State Housing Development Authority. The sit-in supported a Moratorium Now Coalition contingent that went inside to demand MSHDA use the remaining $200 million in Michigan’s federal Hardest Hit Funds to keep families in their homes, as intended under the program.In Michigan, the bulk of the Hardest Hit Funds are being illegally diverted to a corrupt blight removal program, administered by Detroit and Flint land banks. Moratorium Now is demanding that the funds be used instead to prevent the eviction of thousands of families from all the occupied homes facing tax foreclosure this fall.Under the Moratorium Now proposal, the city or county would remove thousands of occupied tax foreclosed homes from the fall auction by exercising their right of first refusal. Hardest Hit Funds would be supplied to pay delinquent property tax bills, and the homes would then be turned over to the occupants, whether they are owners, renters, land contract vendees or even squatters. Based on the strength of the action on Monday, MSHDA agreed to present this proposal for agreement by the federal Department of the Treasury.The Michigan Poor People’s Campaign action June 11 was part of weekly demonstrations that have occurred every Monday, beginning May 14, in over 30 state capitals across the U.S. The state protests will culminate with a national Stand Against Poverty Mass Rally & Moral Revival on Saturday, June 23, at 10 a.m., on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

Williams said working with Dixon has been great.
