JP Morgan disappoints as Wall Street’s dire December claims another scalp

first_img Callum Keown Tuesday 15 January 2019 2:34 pm JP Morgan disappoints as Wall Street’s dire December claims another scalp whatsapp Fixed income trading fell to $1.9bn (£1.5bn), its lowest since the financial crisis.It comes after Citi’s disappointing fourth quarter results yesterday, which saw the income at the bank’s bond trading division slashed by 21 per cent.The third-largest US bank reported a surprise two per cent fall in revenue yesterday, again due to market volatility, particularly in December.Despite volatile trading conditions, JP Morgan reported a 67 per cent rise in profits to $7.1bn, a fourth quarter record.But at $1.98 per share, it came in slightly below analysts’ expectations of $2.20 per share. whatsappcenter_img It is the first time the bank has posted quarterly profit below forecasts in 15 quarters.Annual earnings jumped 33 per cent to a record-high of $32.5 billion.“Despite a challenging quarter, we grew markets revenue in the investment bank for the year with record performance in equities and solid performance in fixed income,” chief executive Jamie Dimon said.Dimon also turned his attentions to the ongoing political turmoil in the US, and said if the government shutdown continues for the full quarter it could cut growth to zero.He said: “We urge our country’s leaders to strike a collaborative, constructive tone, which would reinforce already-strong consumer and business sentiment. Tags: Trading Archive Share “Businesses, government and communities need to work together to solve problems and help strengthen the economy for the benefit of everyone.” US bank JP Morgan saw its bond trading revenue plunge 18 per cent at the end of last year as Wall Street’s dire December claimed another major scalp.The bank – a bellwether for the financial industry – said “challenging market conditions” caused revenue declines in credit trading, rates and commodities, as it published results for the fourth quarter of 2018.last_img read more

News / Logistics sector welcomes Whitehall plan for Brexit transition period

first_img© Palinchak | – Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Theresa May “Exiting the EU was always going to involve some uncomfortable negotiations, but we just need to keep calm and hold firm. Ultimately we will get a deal that works for us.“I remain extremely optimistic about the opportunities post-Brexit.”Brexit policy advisor at the UK Chamber of Shipping Matthew Wright also welcomed the prime minister’s comments, noting the importance of EU nationals to the UK’s shipping sector.Mr Wright said the comments would help “allay” concerns of seafarers, while also setting the technical discussion of their position off to a “better start”.“Securing the ability of UK companies to employ EU nationals with EU certificates has been at the forefront of the UK Chamber’s concerns,” he added. “It will be interesting to see this week just by how much the PM’s intervention will re-set the formal negotiations when they start again.”The Freight Transport Association (FTA) said it had been lobbying for a transitional period since Article 50 was triggered in March.Head of European policy Pauline Bastidon said it showed government “finally recognised” the complexities surrounding negotiation and implementation of new trading relationships.She said: “Calling for a transitional period, to give enough time for negotiators to conclude an agreement, and for authorities and businesses to adapt, is a huge relief for the logistics industry.“The government has finally acknowledged the scale and complexities of the task ahead to ensure frictionless trade across borders with the European Union, both mainland Europe and in Ireland.“This will come as a relief to our members, who have expressed concern while facing the task of ensuring that goods and services still reach their destinations.”During the proposed transitional period, the UK would continue to abide by membership arrangements, including the terms of market access, and would contribute financially to the EU budget. This would stagger the effects of the UK’s withdrawal from the bloc, which the UK Chamber of Shipping described as a “sensible approach”.“Shipping is highly integrated with EU regulations and with a new regulatory framework unlikely to be established before Brexit, maintaining status quo in the meantime is essential,” said Mr Wright.“Mrs May said the transitional period should last as long as it would take to introduce the new processes required after Brexit. Despite this seemingly open-ended expectation, the prime minister stated it would be ‘strictly time-limited’.”Both the UK Chamber and the FTA said the period “must not” lead to inactivity in determining the exact terms of future customs and trade agreements.Ms Bastidon called on the government to follow the proposals with “concrete actions”, adding that logistics affects every part of our daily life and needs to be prioritised in Brexit negotiations.“Customers need certainty that vehicles and planes can keep moving, drivers can operate across borders and supply chains will not face insurmountable challenges overnight on Brexit day,” she added. Members of the UK logistics industry have commended prime minister Theresa May for making the “right noises” during a Brexit speech, but warned government must follow through on its promises.In Florence on Friday, Mrs May not only called for a transitional period following the UK’s 2019 exit, but said EU nationals would be eligible for permanent residence.Managing director of Europa Worldwide Andrew Baxter told The Loadstar he thought the speech was both “very balanced” and “sensible”.He said: “I welcome the transitional period and find it unsurprising that we might have to continue to make contributions to the EU budget while we are in that phase.center_img By Alexander Whiteman 27/09/2017last_img read more

Backing our local manufacturing businesses to grow

first_imgBacking our local manufacturing businesses to grow Joint media release with the Minister for Industry, Science and Technology, The Hon Karen Andrews MPThe Morrison Government’s game-changing investment to super-charge manufacturing and grow jobs is now open to local businesses, with applications sought under the $1.3 billion Modern Manufacturing Initiative (MMI).Assistant Minister for Industry Development Jonno Duniam said he urged Tasmanian businesses to apply so they can benefit from the new grants, create jobs and take on the world.“The MMI is not about providing our manufacturers a sugar hit, it’s about backing our manufacturers to improve their competitiveness and scale them up to compete on the world stage,” Assistant Minister Duniam said.“If you have an exciting project in our priority sectors this is your opportunity to receive funding support and be part of an important national effort to expand and enhance our manufacturing sector.“This initiative is the centrepiece of our Modern Manufacturing Strategy, with two of the three investment streams under the MMI are currently open.The Manufacturing Translation Stream (MTS) will support projects to translate good ideas into new or enhanced commercial outcomes, while the Manufacturing Integration Stream (MIS) will support projects that integrate Australian businesses into global value chains, or that upgrade their existing position in a value chain.“I certainly encourage local manufacturing businesses to be part of our practical plan to secure the future of manufacturing and help create jobs and a stronger Tasmania.”Through the MMI, funding is being provided to successful applicants in six national priority sectors.First rounds are now open for Resources Technology and Critical Minerals, Medical Products, and the Space sector.Other priority sectors opening in the coming weeks are: Food and Beverage, Recycling and Clean Energy, and Defence.Minister for Industry, Science and Technology Karen Andrews said the opening of the MMI is delivering on the Government’s commitment to transform Australia’s manufacturing base.“Under the Modern Manufacturing Initiative, co-funded grants are available for projects which have outstanding merit, commercial potential and will provide value to Australia in advancing the development of the our manufacturing priority sectors,” Minister Andrews said.“Taken together all the projects we fund under the MMI are designed to build Australia’s reputation as a reliable and high-value manufacturing nation and are a central element of our Modern Manufacturing Strategy.”To guide the types of projects the Government will back in each sector under the MMI, an industry-led road map is also being released.“The road maps set out our vision for manufacturing investment in each sector.They’ll continue to be built on over time to ensure we’re capturing new opportunities to grow these priority sectors and create jobs,” Minister Andrews said. /Public Release.

CU-Boulder Space Scientists Gear Up For Mercury Mission Flyby Of Venus

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: June 3, 2007 University of Colorado at Boulder researchers will scan Venus during a spacecraft flyby this week using an $8.7 million instrument they designed and built for NASA’s MESSENGER Mission, launched in 2004 and speeding toward Mercury. Built by CU-Boulder’s Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics, the instrument will make measurements of the thick clouds and shrouded surface of Venus during the June 5th flyby, said LASP Senior Research Associate William McClintock, a mission co-investigator who led the CU-Boulder instrument development team. Known as the Mercury Atmospheric and Surface Composition Spectrometer, or MASCS, the instrument will compare the atmosphere of Venus with data from other spacecraft that have visited the planet in the past four decades. “This is our first opportunity for a close flyby of a solar system object with MESSENGER, and we should be able to tell if the atmosphere of Venus has been changing in recent years, ” said McClintock. “As importantly, we are using Venus as a test case to learn more about our instrument performance in preparation for the spacecraft’s ultimate destination of Mercury.” Carrying seven instruments, MESSENGER will be the first spacecraft ever to orbit Mercury and the first to return data from the hot, rocky planet in more than 30 years. The circuitous, 4.9 billion mile journey to Mercury, which requires more than seven years and 13 loops around the sun, is using the gravity of Venus during its flyby this week to guide it closer to Mercury’s orbit. MESSENGER will make its first flyby of Mercury in January 2008, zipping by it again at a top speed of 141,000 miles per hour in October 2008 before flying by a third time in September 2009 and finally settling into orbit in March 2011. “This is a mission that requires some patience,” said Mark Lankton, LASP’s program manager for the MASCS instrument. “We are anticipating a brief symphony of action at Venus, and we have a lot of data to take in a hurry.” Dozens of CU-Boulder undergraduate and graduate students will be involved in data analysis from MESSENGER in the coming years, said Lankton. MASCS’s ultraviolet and visible spectrometer will be looking at the cloud composition of Venus. While the surface of Venus is hot enough to melt lead and its atmosphere is filled with noxious carbon dioxide gases and acid rain, Earth and Venus were virtual twins at birth, scientists believe. The miniaturized MASCS instrument, which took more than three years to develop, weighs less than seven pounds and was built to last, said McClintock. “Many space instruments have a lifetime of only three to four years,” he said. “But we knew we had to make this one robust enough to work for more than a decade under harsh conditions.” The MESSENGER spacecraft is about the size of a small economy car and is equipped with a semi-cylindrical thermal shade to protect it from the sun. More than half of the weight of the 1.2-ton spacecraft consists of propellant and helium. “We like to call it the little spacecraft that could,” said McClintock. “This event at Venus will be a very good tune-up for our first flyby of Mercury next January,” said LASP Director Daniel Baker, also a co-investigator on the MESSENGER team. “The first encounter with Mercury will be extremely valuable, as it will essentially double the amount of information we now have about the planet.” A space physicist, Baker is interested in the magnetic field of Mercury and its interaction with the solar wind, including “substorms” associated with Mercury’s magnetic field that occur in the planet’s vicinity. Understanding Mercury’s surface, tenuous atmosphere and magnetic field are the keys to understanding the evolution of the inner solar system, he said. Mercury was visited only once before by a spacecraft, in 1974 and 1975, when NASA’s Mariner 10 spacecraft made three flybys and mapped roughly 45 percent of the planet’s rocky surface at the time. MASCS will probe the mineral composition of Mercury’s surface, the distribution of gases in its tenuous atmosphere and the workings of a giant, comet-like sodium gas cloud enveloping the planet, said McClintock. The researchers also hope to determine if Mercury ever had volcanoes on its surface and if the permanently shadowed craters at Mercury’s poles contain water-ice. MESSENGER is equipped with a large sunshield and heat-resistant ceramic fabric because Mercury is about two-thirds of the way nearer to the sun than Earth and is bombarded with 10 times the solar radiation. Sandwiched by the sun and Mercury — which has daytime temperatures of about 800 degrees Fahrenheit — the spacecraft will “essentially be on a huge rotisserie,” said Baker. Managed by Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Laboratory for NASA, MESSENGER involves about 20 scientists. Sean Solomon of the Carnegie Institution in Washington, D.C., is MESSENGER’s principal investigator. Data from MESSENGER will be sent to NASA’s Deep Space Network tracking antennas, then to Johns Hopkins and finally to LASP’s Space Technology Building in the CU Research Park.last_img read more

Year in Review Part 4: October

first_imgA Día de los Muertos Art Installation came to the Third Street Promenade and Santa Monica Pier. Artist Ricardo Soltero shared his larger than life La Catrina statues to highlight the traditional Mexican cultural celebration of life and death.. The Fairmont Miramar project received approval from City Councilmembers, meaning Santa Monica’s 4.5-acre landmarked property featuring could soon be renovated to include new guest rooms, expanded retail space, and more. Following a 4-2 vote, with Councilmembers Kevin McKeown and Sue Himmelrich voting against the project, developers must head to the California Coastal Commission for approval.  California eased its coronavirus restrictions to allow up to three households to socialize outdoors, an expansion of rules aimed at people tempted to have even larger gatherings around Halloween, Thanksgiving and end-of-year holidays. The goal was not to encourage larger gatherings, Newsom said, but to recognize the increasing pressure for get-togethers and provide ways for people to act appropriately.  Mayor Kevin McKeown alongside 42 other mayors in the California Mayors Coalition signed a letter to Governor Newsom urging him to provide more equitable financial relief to cities. There was a significant inequity in the state’s allocation of $500 million in federal funding from the CARES Act between large and small cities. Six of California’s thirteen cities with a population of over 300,000 were allocated funding equal to $174 per person, however, cities like Santa Monica that have a population under 300,000 only received $12.28 per resident. Santa Monica City Council instituted a one-year moratorium on the operation of autonomous delivery vehicles on sidewalks in response to a company called CyanRobotics, which began deploying contactless food delivery robots in August. Since the company did not apply for a business license prior to deploying its devices, staff sent the company a cease and desist letter, which forced the company to immediately stop all deployments in the city. For 100 years, The First Baptist Church of Venice has called Venice home but a fire threatened to destroy a century’s worth of history. Residents believe it wasn’t accidental. Los Angeles Fire Department officials responded to a fire near the location and recorded it as rubbish fire from part of a homeless encampment. The Prize Patrol from Publishers Clearing House traveled to Santa Monica on Friday to award $10,000 to local resident Cheryl Pappas. Revisions to Santa Monica’s recently adopted leasing requirements were passed by City Councilmembers, allowing local homeowners to rent their homes for less than a year as long as they meet certain criteria. Council first tackled medium term rentals in August when it adopted an ordinance mandating all residential rental properties in the city must be rented unfurnished to natural persons, who intend to occupy the unit as their primary residence for longer than a year. The Santa Monica City Attorney’s Office chose the OIR Group to lead an after-action review for the looting, riots and protests of May 31. City officials said publicly that the first of two reports would be finished in August of this year but the police department said it was unable to prepare the document and handle regular police work. In response, council authorized staff to hire a third party company to combine both reports into a single document. With the prohibition on fast food restaurants in the Third Street Promenade set to expire in November, Santa Monica’s Planning Commission considered amendments that would make the moratorium on fast food uses with frontage on the Promenade permanent. When UCLA Professor Andrea Ghez was awoken by a phone call at 2 a.m. on Tuesday morning, she had an immediate fear of impending bad news. That alarm quickly turned to delight as she discovered she was being awarded a Nobel Prize in Physics for her research on black holes, making her the fourth woman selected in the award’s 119 year history. A court hearing reopened settlement proceedings for the lawsuit over alleged illegal school supply fees charged by the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District. The court needs to assign a new third party referee and decide on procedures for adjudicating the 334 school fee reimbursement claims disputed by the District. Attorney Kevin Shenkman initiated the lawsuit in 2017 on behalf of parents Vivian Mahl and Gina de Baca, claiming that SMMUSD required families pay for field trips, uniforms, and school supplies in violation of the constitutional guarantee to a free education.  Two legal decisions reaffirmed Santa Monica’s ability to shutter its local airport at the end of 2028. In January 2017, the city and the Federal Aviation Administration entered into a Settlement Agreement and Consent Decree. Two local resident groups opposed the proposed Consent Decree, prompting a legal battle that recently came to an end when a federal district court in Washington granted a motion by the FAA to dismiss the case due to a lack of jurisdiction. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health announced that playgrounds were cleared for safe reopening but officials gave cities the ability to decide exactly when monkey bars and slides would be safe for use again. Santa Monica’s Public Works teams prepared 12 playgrounds for reopening. Nearly 20 miles of new protected bike lanes are planned for Santa Monica streets after local City Councilmembers approved an update to the city’s Bike Action Plan.  A Santa Monica man found multiple ballots for the 2020 election in public trash bins this week alongside what appeared to be other mail from nearby homes. Osvaldo Jimenez found the first batch of ballots in an Alley between 20th and 21st in the Pico neighborhood around 4:30 p.m. and he found a second batch on Virginia Ave in a recycling bin in front of the nearby church later that night. Santa Monica Police Chief Cynthia Renaud retired from her position and was replaced be replaced by former chief Jacqueline Seabrooks who returned as Interim Chief. A Santa Monica day spa owner was charged today in federal court with accumulating N95 respirators in anticipation of the COVID-19 pandemic and then price gouging by selling the scarce masks at vastly inflated prices. Santa Monica Police Department crisis negotiators helped talk a nineteen year-old man out of a potential suicide attempt in Palisades Park on Tuesday morning. The individual sat on a bluff above the Pacific Coast Highway for two hours, during which time officers closed the 10 freeway below Lincoln Ave and a section of the northbound PCH.  School Board members approved SMMUSD’s plan to purchase a building at 1717 4th Street to become the new District headquarters. The space is adjacent to the Doubletree Suites and next to Santa Monica High School and the Civic Center. The $21 million purchase will not impact the General Fund, but will be financed through redevelopment agency funding and by leasing the District’s current office space at 1651 16th St. As America undergoes another reckoning with race, the Venice Family Clinic celebrated 50 years of fighting for justice in healthcare through a Zoom party fundraiser and a week of volunteer activism. An Irvine man was taken into federal custody on charges alleging he set fire to a Santa Monica Police Department car during civil unrest that accompanied widespread protests in late May. Nathan Wilson, 27, is charged in a federal criminal complaint with malicious damage to property owned by an institution or organization receiving federal financial assistance. Santa Monica’s Target held its grand opening at 1610 Wilshire. Word first spread about a new Target opening in the location back in January when the building’s previous occupant, Staples, announced it would be closing. L.A. County recorded a record number of white supremacist hate crimes and crimes against the transgender community in its 2019 Hate Crimes Report. The report showed that there were 524 hate crimes recorded in 2019, which is only one crime more than those recorded in 2018, but it marks a 36 percent increase in hate crimes from 2013. A Santa Monica based drug investigation has yielded one arrest in addition to fentanyl, heroin, prescription pills and seizure of $296,000 in cash. According to SMPD, officers began investigating the suspect following a drug sale in city limits.  The Santa Monica College Board delayed discussions relating to campus equity after a study session triggered strong emotional reactions from officials. At the special study session held in September, staff, students and college stakeholders gathered to discuss aspects of policy and leadership that are key to promoting equity and guided pathways reforms. Following two and a half years of negotiations between Malibu City Council and SMMUSD, Malibu decided to reinstate its petition to L.A. County Office of Education to form a separate school district. SMMUSD Superintendent Dr. Ben Drati sent a letter to the City of Malibu expressing disapproval of the petition and urging Malibu to return to the negotiating table for the sake of preserving educational equity.
