SEC settles insider trading case for more than $17m

first_img KCS-content whatsapp Share SEC settles insider trading case for more than $17m THE US Securities and Exchange Commission has accepted more than $17m (£11m) from two men to settle federal insider trading charges related to the takeover of biotechnology company MedImmune.Stephen Goldfield, 46, who ran the hedge fund firm Imperium Capital Management, was charged with making $13.98m (£9.05m) in illegal profit by trading in MedImmune securities before Anglo-Swiss drug giant AstraZeneca agreed in April 2007 to buy the firm for more than $15bn.The SEC also accused James Self Jr, 45, Goldfield’s friend and former Wharton School of Business classmate, of tipping him off about the MedImmune sale process with information he learned working for a New Jersey pharmaceutical firm. Goldfield agreed to settle for $16.65m, reflecting the profit plus interest, but will only pay $600,000 because he lost all the illegal profit in several aggressive put option trades. Self accepted a $50,000 civil fine. Neither admitted any wrongdoing. The settlement comes as federal regulators have brought a spate of insider trading cases after facing a wave of criticism for having missed fraud in previous years.

The 2011 budget, aimed at convincing European leaders that it is on track to tackle its deficit crisis, would see the debt narrowed more than expected. Under an agreement with Europe, which bailed Greece out with a €110bn (£95bn) package, the country is required to cut the level of debt to 7.6 per cent of GDP.The country’s fiscal gap in 2011 would be €16.35bn, down from €18.5bn this year, according to the documents.Revenue will rise 6.9 per cent on a year-to-year basis to €56.3bn, and spending will fall 5.9 per cent to €67.5bn next year, according to the draft budget. It also forecasts that the Greek economy will shrink by 2.6 per cent in 2011 after a drop of four per cent in 2010. The country has set in motion a series of emergency measures including a blitz on unpaid tax and public sector cuts which have triggered a series of strikes. Despite the economic storm China has backed Greece’ s recovery package with a support for the country’s shipping industry and a pledge to buy Greek government bonds. Finance minister George Papaconstantinou and Prime Minister George Papandreou said yesterday that more cutting was inevitable if the Greek economy was to secure a long-term recovery.TIME LINE | HOW THE GREEK DEBT CRISIS HAS UNFOLDEDJan 14 2010 Greece unveils stability programme, saying it will aim to cut its budget gap to 2.8 per cent of GDP in 2012 from 12.7 per cent in 2009.2 Feb Prime Minister George Papandreou says the government will extend a public sector wage freeze to those making below €2,000 a month. 24 Feb Strikes against austerity measures cripples Greece’s transport and public services.5 Mar New package of public sector pay cuts and tax increases is passed to save an extra €4.8bn.11 April Eurozone finance ministers approve €30bn emergency aid mechanism for Greece but say Athens has not yet asked to activate plan.23 April Prime Minister George Papandreou asks for activation of an EU/IMF aid package €110bn.2 May Greece seals a deal with the EU and IMF opening the door to a multi-billion euro bailout and extra budget cuts of €30bn.10 May Global policymakers set up $1 trillion fund to stop the Greek crisis destroying the euro.4 Oct Greece says in budget for 2011 that it will cut debt to seven per cent of GDP.

The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC)/KPMG report showed a slower rise in both permanent and temporary vacancies during the month. Salary increases among permanent staff also rose by the lowest amount in ten months, the report shows.And hourly pay among temporary and contract staff actually decreased marginally in September for the first time in nine months.Engineering, construction and executive staff were those most in demand indicating a continuing recovery in the private and manufacturing sectors. But public sector recruitment had seen a severe drop in demand as organisations began redundancy programmes or imposed hiring freezes. There had been “a sharp decline” in the demand for healthcare professionals as a direct result of government cutbacks and efforts to reform the NHS, which KPMG partner and head of business services, Bernard Brown warned “may be only a sign of things to come.” Kevin Green, chief executive of the REC, said September’s report showed the jobs market was “starting to flatline” adding the figures could “herald a ‘double dip’ in employment”. Green said: “While there is marginal growth, these figures are the worst we have seen for a year. The government must do everything possible to avert the threat of increasing unemployment.” Show Comments ▼ Sharelast_img read more

The bulk of the grant goes towards paying staff, with the rest spent on items like stationery, laundry and garden parties.Osborne said: “Going forward, she has also agreed that total Royal Household spending will fall by 14 per cent, or £6m, in 2012-2013 while grants to the household will be frozen in cash terms.”Buckingham Palace costs taxpayer £38m, a year, excluding security costs.A palace spokesman said: “The household obviously has some challenging times ahead, like many areas of government.” The monarch, under pressure to reduce costs, had already agreed to the £7.9m cost of the Civil List being frozen for 20 years from 1990. That arrangement expired this year.In October Buckingham Palace announced it had scrapped its Christmas party after it was deemed inappropriate to celebrate while the economy was still recovering. whatsapp whatsapp Tags: NULL Queen agrees to £6m cut to annual civil list budget last_img read more

Osborne: News vindicates cuts

first_img Osborne: News vindicates cuts whatsapp GEORGE Osborne yesterday hailed a “double dose of good news” as proof his austerity cuts will underpin confidence in the British company.The chancellor’s comments came after the latest GDP figures showed the British economy grew by 0.8 per cent in the third quarter, much faster than economists predicted. Meanwhile, Standard & Poor’s revised its outlook for the UK economy to stable from negative, citing Osborne’s spending cuts as the main reason for its decision. It also reaffirmed Britain’s coveted AAA rating for sovereign debt. Osborne said both pieces of news were “a vote of confidence in the government’s economic policies” and said Britain now had “the confidence to look to the future with some optimism. The chancellor also dismissed talk of a double-dip recession. “I think what you see today, in an uncertain global economic environment, is Britain growing, growing strongly – the strongest growth we’ve seen in this part of the year for a decade,” he said. And Osborne said the electorate understood that Britain’s deficit needed to be urgently dealt with, despite polls showing the public thinks the government is going too fast with spending cuts. The GDP figures and statement from Standard & Poor’s put the Labour party on the back foot. It argues that the economy is too weak to withstand Osborne’s austerity measures, but strong growth numbers blunt that line of attack. “There’s no sign yet in the private sector of the kind of momentum we need to create jobs to replace the million or so that will be lost as a result of the cuts,” said shadow chancellor Alan Johnson. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesDiscovery23+ Sports Stadiums Around the World That Are Abandoned NowDiscoveryMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Herald 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?

MPC forecast to hold back from more QE

first_img MPC forecast to hold back from more QE Share KCS-content Show Comments ▼ whatsapp whatsappcenter_img Tags: NULL Sunday 31 October 2010 11:16 pm UNEXPECTEDLY strong growth in the three months to September and stubbornly high inflation will force the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) to hold back from loosening policy further when it meets later this week, according to a majority of City economists.The news last week that the British economy had expanded at a quarterly rate of 0.8 per cent during the third quarter prompted a number of City economists to revise their outlook for interest rates and quantitative easing (QE). The expansion was twice as fast as the consensus expected. Many had seen November as the most likely month for the MPC to move on policy because the committee benefits from fresh growth and inflation forecasts, which will be made public in the quarterly Inflation Report on 16 November.Even Capital Economics, which had been extremely dovish, admitted last week that the strong rise in GDP significantly reduced the chances of additional quantitative easing (QE) being announced at this Thursday’s meeting, barring a big shock the purchasing managers’ indices which are released over the next three days.Vicky Redwood at Capital Economics still thinks that further asset purchases in early 2011 are likely. Societe Generale’s Brian Hilliard agrees, suggesting February 2011 as a likely month. But he adds: “If [governor Mervyn] King were to give even the slightest hint that the MPC might soon move to QE2 then we would have to revise our forecast of the timing of the move from February 2010 to December 2010.”Last month’s three-way split among policy members is expected to maintained, with hawk Andrew Sentance on one side and dove Adam Posen on the other. Sentance had voted to raise rates by 0.25 per cent while Posen was in favour of expanding QE by £50bn to £250bn. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyDiscovery23+ Sports Stadiums Around the World That Are Abandoned NowDiscoverySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Herald 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?
