whatsapp Show Comments ▼ KCS-content whatsapp Sunday 30 January 2011 10:42 pm PROPERTY investors plan to cash in on the fragile parts of the residential market over the next 12 months, according to survey figures released today. Just 13 per cent of the 146 property professionals surveyed by Investec believe that residential property values will go up in the next year. Almost half (49 per cent) expect average prices to decline, and one in eight predict a fall of between six and 10 per cent during 2011. Housing was ranked the most attractive buy for property investors this year, with retail and leisure properties ranked joint second best. One in three investors surveyed expects yields to increase this year, while 14 per cent predict a drop. The findings support a poll of economists by Reuters last week that suggested a decline of around two per cent in average UK house prices over the next year. Gary Dobson of Investec’s Structured Property Finance division said: “Residential property values in the UK remain depressed compared to their peak. “This should create some great opportunities for investors as they take advantage of low valuations and higher yields.” Share Property experts tip residential as a prime target for investment by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

We have now identified capex synergies of at least £30m in addition to the £130m cost synergies and we are well placed to deliver those savings while driving top line growth.“We are gaining market share in all our key markets and we will look to reinvest to further strengthen our market position.”Alexander also said that the US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn a federal ban on sports betting in May had carved out new market openings for the company.“The repeal of PASPA by the US Supreme Court in May provides a significant new market opportunity and we are delighted to have announced a joint venture with MGM Resorts to provide sports-betting and online gaming services in the US,” he added.“The combination of MGM’s leading brands together with GVC’s proprietary technology, and both businesses’ combined betting and gaming expertise, puts the group in the best possible position to benefit from what could become the world’s largest regulated sports betting market.”Image: GVC Email Address Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Casino & games Company notes additional savings following Ladbrokes Coral takeover
PAGCOR plays down igaming industry impact on China A senior figure at the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) has played down the impact of the country’s online gambling industry on China amid heightening tensions.Victor Padilla, senior manager of PAGCOR’s policy and offshore gaming licensing division, was speaking during the House budget hearing on the agency’s 2020 budget just days after Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said that the Philippines should “ban all online gambling”.Padilla claimed that Philippines-licensed sites were not active in any country that prohibits online gambling, per PAGCOR regulations. He also cast doubt on claims that Chinese employees of offshore gaming operators were being mistreated, suggesting it was an issue of “perspective”.It emerged at the start of this week that PAGCOR had opted to suspend the award of licences to offshore operators (POGOs) until at least the end of this year due to concerns about illegal operations and security.This followed a Chinese embassy spokesperson in the Philippines accusing PAGCOR of issuing licences to operators that illegally target Chinese nationals. The spokesperson warned the Philippines to adopt “concrete and effective measures to prevent and punish the Philippine casinos, POGOs and other forms of gambling entities for their illegal employment of Chinese citizens and crack down related crimes that hurt the Chinese citizens”.The Cambodian Government has also ceased awarding new online gambling licences with immediate effect in an effort to clamp down on illegal gambling activities.However, although Geng said at his regular press conference this week that he “appreciates” the steps taken by the Philippines and Cambodia, he called for the Philippines to “go further and ban all online gambling”.The budget hearing also saw PAGCOR assistant vice president Sharon Quintanilla reveal that the regulator expects total revenue for 2019 to reach P73.88bn (£1.15bn/€1.27bn/$1.41bn), down from 2018’s total of P104.12bn. Of this sum, P51.53 is expected to be allocated to “nation-building” projects, such as constructing schools and accommodation, she said. Revenue for the first six months of 2019 amounted to P38.08bn.Representatives at the hearing praised PAGCOR for being a partner in support in rebuilding efforts following natural disasters. 23rd August 2019 | By contenteditor Legal & compliance Topics: Legal & compliance AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Online Gambling A senior figure at the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) has played down the impact of the country’s online gambling industry on China amid heightening tensions.

Two things the father of value investing once said Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Benjamin Graham, commonly known as father of value investing, is the author of The Intelligent Investor. This book is widely read all over the world and cited as a must read by many professional investors. Benjamin Graham described the difference between the market price of a stock and the intrinsic value of the stock as the ‘margin of safety’. For example, if an investing company has a net asset value of 20p per share, but is available to buy at 15p, then the 5p difference is the margin of safety. This is because we would be able to buy the stock at a discount to its actual value. If the business shut up shop the next day, then surplus assets would be distributed to their owners – the shareholders.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…Graham was a firm believer that investment is a business, rather than a game of speculation or betting. It involves a disciplined method that must be followed. The stock investor is not defined as right or wrong by the stock price, but by the facts and analysis.Warren Buffett’s idea of the stock market being a place where everyday somebody turns up and offers a different price for your shares came from Graham.Here are two pieces of wisdom from Benjamin Graham.The intelligent investor is a realist who sells to optimists and buys from pessimistsThe intelligent investor looks at every piece of the puzzle – they use all available information to come up with a fair value for a stock. If the current stock price is above this fair value, then the market is being optimistic. Graham would be interested in buying a stock that the market views optimistically.Instead, he’d rely on there being a margin of safety, and buy a stock that the market is pessimistic about.In the short run, the market is a voting machine but in the long run, it is a weighing machineGraham believed that a proper investment decision is made on analysis of the financials and numbers alone. By focusing on what could be quantified, he did not take into account any exuberance or hatred of the stock, and went to work by focusing on what he knew best.Graham understood that the market would change every day. He knew that people would always be buying and selling, and that this activity affects prices. But he also knew that ultimately the price would eventually reflect the valuation if he stuck around long enough and waited patiently.He also knew that by ignoring the price action of a stock and focusing solely on the business, he would never succumb to the lure of a fast moving price.It’s a lesson as relevant today as it was then. There’s always a reason to buy and sell every single day, as Mr Market turns up and offers us new prices on a daily basis. But just because there’s a reason, doesn’t mean that it’s a good one.

How I’d start earning passive income for the cost of weekend brunch “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address As spring bursts forth and lockdown restrictions are set to ease, outside eating is set to return. Weekend brunch in the park or a café is ordinarily a staple of many people’s social diaries. But while brunch only lasts a mealtime, a passive income stream could last a lifetime.Here’s how I’d start earning passive income for just the cost of weekend brunch.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…Regular savingThe cost of brunch varies a lot. But let’s say that one spends £20 a week on brunch. Putting that away each week comes to a little over a thousand pounds a year.I would use that money to start buying shares instead. It wouldn’t even mean I couldn’t have brunch in future – but whether I did or not, I’d still make a point of keeping this saving habit.In the beginning I couldn’t afford to buy many shares so I’d seek to manage my risk by buying only a conservatively run, blue chip company. For example, a company like Tesco or National Grid would be on my consideration list here. Both yield between 5% and 6%, so I would expect £50–60 a year in passive income per year from them in future from my first year of saving if the dividends are maintained. That passive income could pay for a few brunches!Over time, though, I would try to buy a wider selection of shares to diversify. Tesco faces risks from fast growing discount retailers, while National Grid could have profits constrained by regulatory changes. Investing in a broader basket of shares as my cash pile grew could help expose me to more names and so reduce my overall risk from any one investment.Two passive income picksI find good passive income ideas often emerge in industries that are mature and maybe even in their sunset years.That is because the companies are able to throw off substantial amounts of cash thanks to their long-established customer base. However, there are limited opportunities to redeploy that cash in the business for growth. So it can be distributed to shareholders as dividends, although as with any shares there is no guarantee of future dividends no matter how good the dividend history.An example is tobacco. The two leading FTSE 100 tobacco companies are British American Tobacco and Imperial Tobaccco. BAT yields 7.5%, while Imperial yields 9.5%. That is a very attractive yield to me. Instead of spending money buying cigarettes after brunch, I could be earning passive income from millions of customers doing that.However, high yields can sometimes signal higher risk. For example, cigarette use is declining in many markets and the industry operates within very tight marketing constraints. Both companies are looking into next generation products like vaping, but for now I don’t think they will be as popular or profitable as cigarettes once were.I hold both names and they are passive income favourites of my portfolio – but I am also realistic about the threats to the industry. That is why I am constantly looking for other passive income ideas I can use to build a profitable, diversified portfolio. That sounds as tasty as brunch!

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS After three tough away Magners League games in the space of 12 days, Edinburgh aim to exploit home comforts to the full when they return to Murrayfield for the first time in six weeks to face Cardiff Blues on Friday night (kick-off 7.30pm). The match is interim head coach Nick Scrivener’s first in front of the capital crowd, who will share his determination to gain revenge for the 21-14 defeat sustained against the same opposition in Edinburgh’s last home fixture on January 22.Scrivener has made five changes to his team for a game he describes as a “vital opportunity to lay a marker for the rest of the season.”Up front, Edinburgh welcome back tight-head prop Geoff Cross, who came off the bench to win his third Scotland cap in the RBS 6 Nations Championship match against Ireland last Sunday.Esteban Lozada will line up in the second row alongside Steven Turnbull, while David Denton makes a first Magners League start for the club at blindside flanker. With Alan MacDonald and Roddy Grant both ruled out of this game through injury, Struan Dewar gets an Edinburgh debut at openside.In the backs, Simon Webster will make his first tournament start of the season on the wing.Scrivener confirmed: “Webbo has been fit and itching to get game-time for a couple of months now, but he’s had to show a degree of patience, mainly because of the form of our other wingers.“He deserves this chance to show he can sustain over a longer period the sort of lively showing we’ve seen from him off the bench of late.“The changes we’ve made in the pack are designed to see us get more from our front five. We want our big guys to really make an impact, particularly in contact, and the players we’ve brought in have the ability to do that.“As we’ve seen on a number of occasions in the last couple of months, Geoff Cross is really coming on as a ball carrier and offers excellent leg-drive.“Esteban Lozada is another who is at his most effective when focussed on his core role – being what you’d call a tight lock, hitting rucks, hitting opposition players and carrying the ball. He’s strong in the lineout in both an attacking and a defensive sense, and will complement Steven Turnbull well.“We’ve decided to give David Denton a start because of the size, desire and energy that he brings to the table. There’s no doubt that he’s a raw talent, but he’s first and foremost a talent, and we want to exploit the ability that he offers in the here and now while continuing to work on him.“I’ve been watching Struan closely with Heriot’s and the Scotland 7s team, and I’ve been impressed by his energy and all-round game. He’s confident on the ball and is a good link player. He’s also happy in the wider channels: he can offload and he can pass.”Scrivener has demanded that his players give a rugby-starved Edinburgh audience reason to get behind them from the off.He said: “It’s great to be playing in front of our own crowd after three games on the road, and we know we’ve got a responsibility to perform in a way that lifts them and makes clear the hurt we all feel about our recent results.“All three of the Cardiff games to date this year have been typical of our season: we’ve competed well in patches but not over the 80 minutes. We’re looking for consistency of performance, both within games and from week-to-week. That’s the challenge to the players over these last six games of the Magners League regular season.”Tickets for Friday’s game are available via www.edinburghrugby.org, by calling 0131 346 5180 or by visiting the Murrayfield Ticket Centre (just off Roseburn Street) in person.

The government agencies believe that the case should be situated in Washington, D.C., while Quicken recently submitted a renewed request to move the case to Detroit, Michigan, according to a report from The Detroit News.The report said on Wednesday, U.S. Attorney Brian Hudak filed a 376-page motion stating, “The Court should not reward Quicken Loans’ filing of meritless pre-emptive suit by granting it its favored forum when this district is an appropriate forum for the case to proceed,” Hudak said.Jeffrey B. Morganroth, Managing Partner of Morganroth & Morganroth and attorney for Quicken Loans, sat down exclusively with DS News to explain the lender’s case in further detail and the company’s reason for wanting to move the case from Washington, D.C., to Detroit, Michigan.Morganroth said in an interview Friday that Quicken deems Detroit to be an “appropriate, proper and convenient location” to hold the proceedings of the case.”Quicken Loans is the number one FHA lender both in quality and quantity,” he stated. “That is based on FHA’s own published statistics. Quicken also has the lowest default rate for the loan that they originate for the FHA out of any large lender. Their default rate is three times better than the FHA pool of lenders.”Jeffrey B. MorganrothMorganroth said that the case was filed in the Detroit Federal Court in April 2015 and “that is the most appropriate, proper, and convenient location for a case like this.”The lender filed a suit in April 2015 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan against the U.S. Department of Justice and the Department of Housing and Urban Development, claiming the agencies have been trying to bully the company into making “blatantly false” statements and demanding the company pay “an inexplicable penalty or face legal action,” according to a statement released by Quicken.The Detroit-based lender claims the government has enjoyed “extraordinary profitability for FHA’s insurance program” through its efforts, saying the company’s participation in FHA’s program will earn the government more than $5.7 billion in net profits “from the insurance premiums collected above and beyond claims made from over $40 billion in FHA home loan volume closed by Quicken Loans during the 2007 to 2013 timeframe.””After three years of struggling to understand the DOJ’s position and methodology,” said Quicken CEO Bill Emerson, “it is time to ask the court to intervene. It’s a shame the DOJ would choose to attack the country’s largest and highest quality FHA lender … at the very time our nation needs expanded access to credit for middle-class Americans who benefit most from the FHA program.”Just a six days after Quicken filed its suit, the DOJ filed a lawsuit against Quicken accusing the lender of improperly originating and underwriting FHA-insured mortgages, according to an announcement from the DOJ.”Those who do business with the United States must act in good faith, including lenders that participate in the FHA mortgage insurance program,” said Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Benjamin C. Mizer of the Justice Department’s Civil Division. “To protect the housing market and the FHA fund, we will continue to hold responsible lenders that knowingly violate the rules.”Quicken then filed a motion to transfer the D.C. case to Detroit, which Morganroth says is “the most appropriate, proper, and convenient forum.”There were two reasons that Quicken raised with the court in D.C. to transfer, according to Quicken’s counsel for the case. First, there was an already a case pending that had some overlap with the D.C. case in the earlier file case with control and both cases should be heard in the same location. Second, there is a statute (1404) that has various factors in terms of whether or not a case should be transferred to a different forum. “If applied, under these factors, it makes clear that Detroit is the most appropriate, proper, and convenient forum,” Morganroth reintegrated.”Essentially, all of the witnesses identified in the government’s complaint are located in Detroit, all of the documents referenced in the complaint are in Detroit, and all of Quicken’s management and employees who made decision that are at issue in the D.C., complaint are all in Detroit. There is no real link to D.C.,” Morganroth explained in the interview.The court did not initially rule on the motion. The judge decided to hold off and to stay that entire case for a determination on a motion filed by the government as to Quicken Loans’ case in Detroit they moved to dismiss. Judge Goldsmith in the eastern district of Michigan dismissed Quicken’s case on largely procedural grounds, determining that the best way to resolve these issues would be as defenses in connection with the government’s D.C. case.We then refiled our motion to transfer because the judge in D.C. said based on that motion and the decision that happened in Detroit, one of the grounds that were raised in our original motion was no longer an issue, so Quicken shifted their focus back to the 1404 statute.The government filed their opposition this week. Morganroth says, “It glaringly evidences this desperate attempt by the government to venue shop and pick a jurisdiction that doesn’t really have any link to the case and would make the case more burdensome, costly, and difficult for Quicken to defend. Their opposition is filled with mischaracterizations and disingenuous spin. They make ridiculous arguments including that Quicken sponsors a PGA Tour golf event in Washington, D.C., which benefits military families and that supposedly is one of the reasons why that jurisdiction is the right one. They make an argument that Quicken is not entitled to a transfer of their case because the Detroit case was dismissed, but the fact that it was dismissed has no bearing on the 1404 transfer motion.He continued, “Finally, what the DOJ is doing in their opposition is trying to make some argument that government employees are core witnesses in the case and they have a listing of these employees that are located in Washington, D.C., however, the employees that they list are claims and payment processing employees and the case has nothing to do with claims and processing of payments.”Morganroth said that the heart of the case is whether or not Quicken Loans knowingly engaged in a scheme to violate FHA guidelines.On March 8, Quicken filed a motion to dismiss the D.C. case. “We did that because the complaint does not allege a False Claims Act violation. It does make that assertion, but the pleating is defective because they can’t and have not asserted any factual allegations that would support any of the elements of a False Claims Act violation. This has not been done because there are no facts to support that claim.” Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago FHA Lawsuits Quicken Loans 2016-03-11 Brian Honea Tagged with: FHA Lawsuits Quicken Loans Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Quicken Still Fighting Government’s Lawsuit Over FHA Loans Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Xhevrije West is a talented writer and editor based in Dallas, Texas.
