Gaddafi and his family, who have ruled with an iron fist for 41 years, vowed to fight “until the last bullet” yesterday, despite protesters taking control of the country’s major cities.In an appearance on state TV, aimed at scotching rumours that he had fled the country, Gadaffi asserted: “I am in Tripoli and not in Venezuela.”Foreign minister William Hague had said he had seen information suggesting Gaddafi was on his way to Caracas, reports dismissed by Gadaffi as “malicious rumours” spread by “hating channels”.Protests initially centred in Benghazi, the second city, and other eastern cities, swept across Libya. The burning shell of the “Hall of the People” parliament building in the centre of the capital Tripoli became one of the defining images of the clashes. Gaddafi yesterday ordered jets to bomb his cache of weapons and planes to stop them being reclaimed by the opposition, with civilians among the scores of casualties.An army unit in Benghazi, is said to have switched sides and helped fight off Gaddafi supporters, who appear to have retreated from the region.Members of Libya’s mission to the United Nations made a stinging attack on Gaddafi, branding him a genocidal war criminal.Senior politicians, sensing a sea-change, also jumped ship, with both public security minister Abdul Fattah Younis al-Obeid and justice minister, Mustapha Abdeljalil renouncing their leader.In a dramatic sign of Gaddafi’s weakening grip on his own military, two Libyan pilots used their jets to defect to Malta, where they have claimed asylum.David Cameron, who became the first world leader to visit Egypt since Hosni Mubarak was ousted, branded the Libyan response to protests “completely appalling and unacceptable”. He said: “Libya is using the most vicious forms of repression against people who want to see their country make progress.” The incredible scenes sent investors running for cover, with gold prices rocketing and the price of oil rising to more than $107. whatsapp Show Comments ▼last_img read more

It’s fascinating to see which UK shares other private investors are buying and selling. And trading data is sometimes a great source of ideas. But it doesn’t always pay to follow the crowd.In this piece I’m going to look at three stocks that were heavily sold last week by clients of DIY investment platform Hargreaves Lansdown (LSE: HL). Oddly enough, Hargreaves shares were on the list, so let’s start with a look at the latest from this FTSE 100 firm.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…Sell Hargreaves? No thanksHargreaves Lansdown has never been a cheap share, but the firm’s performance has justified a premium rating over many years. I don’t see any obvious reason for this to change.Despite the stock market crash in March, the company traded well through the first half of 2020. Client numbers rose by 94,000 during the four months to 30 April, and by a further 44,000 in May and June.Hargreaves’ financial results backed up this growth. Assets under management rose by 5% to £104bn, despite the effects of the market crash. The group’s pre-tax profit rose by 24% to £378m last year, while the dividend was lifted 31% to 54.9p per share.The shares may seem pricey on 30 times forecast earnings. But for a business with a market-leading position and an operating profit margin of 68%, I think the price is fair. I’d rather be buying than selling.This UK share could be a box office flopCineworld Group (LSE: CINE) has been one of the biggest casualties of the lockdown. Of course, all cinema chains were affected equally in terms of closures. But Cineworld’s heavy debt load means that in my view, the business now looks quite fragile.Investors appear to agree. The Cineworld share price has fallen by more than 70% this year. One concern for me is that I feel Cineworld’s management has been a little vague about the group’s financial situation since lockdown.My analysis of the numbers that are available suggests that the company’s debt levels are unlikely to be sustainable without some kind of refinancing.Cineworld’s half-year results are due towards the end of September. These should provide a clearer picture.Until then, I’d avoid this stock. Although the cinema group’s shares may look cheap on five times forecast earnings, I don’t think they’re worth much more at the moment.US tech giants are powering this UK shareThe last stock I want to look at is a little different. Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust (LSE: SMT) sounds pretty dull and worthy. But the SMT share price has risen by more than 60% this year, thanks to the trust’s holdings in US tech giants such as Tesla, Amazon and Netflix.If that isn’t enough growth for you, SMT also holds shares in Chinese tech stars such as Tencent and Alibaba. It’s a focused portfolio that’s performed well for investors over many years. A £1,000 investment in SMT back in August 2000 would be worth £10,000 today.Can this continue? There’s no doubt that SMT has a track record of picking long-term winners from the US tech market. Although I think we’ll see a correction at some point, I wouldn’t bet against the trust’s continued growth.My view on Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust is neutral, but I’d consider selling if I needed to cash in some investments.last_img read more

Trump administration can’t ask about citizenship status in 2020 census, federal judge rules

first_imgliveslow/iStock(NEW YORK) — The Trump administration cannot ask a question about citizenship status in the 2020 census, a federal judge in New York ruled Tuesday.U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman concluded that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross had violated the public trust in his decision to include a citizenship question on the next census, calling Ross’s decision “arbitrary and capricious.”In the 277-page decision, Furman wrote that such a question would be constitutional, but that Ross had not followed proper procedures when he decided to add it.“He failed to consider several important aspects of the problem; alternately ignored, cherry-picked, or badly misconstrued the evidence in the record before him; acted irrationally both in light of that evidence and his own stated decisional criteria; and failed to justify significant departures from past policies and practices,” Furman wrote.

On-the-job award is revolutionary

Lastmonth the first Investment Administration Management Awards were presented tostaff who had completed a year-long training programme designed to improvetheir knowledge, business acumen and ability to manage.  Work-basedand focusing on the development of confident team leaders and administrationmanagers, I believe that the nationally accredited award is revolutionary atleast within the investment funds sector – and thought Training readers may beinterested to find out more. Ibelieve that it is revolutionary from two important aspects: –Participants meet award requirements, through continual, on-the-job assessmentrather than one-off exams, and each candidate works under the direction andsupport of a personal “mentor”. They have to complete five modules comprisingcourse work and an assignment, set in conjunction with their line manager. Theyconclude with a project, based again on a real business issue, specific totheir organisation.    –The training represents an unprecedented investment in training foradministration staff oft neglected relative to fund managers and other “frontoffice” staff. Member firms of this association got together to identifythe  skills needs in their respectivefast-moving, hi-tech “back offices” that could not easily be met by piecemealin-house programmes. The evaluation now demonstrates that benefits are alreadybeing realised by award winners and their firms.  Feedbackfrom candidates includes the comment that choosing real subjects forassignments meant that information from workshops and manuals was “retained andput to good use rather than gathering dust in a file”.  Seniorline managers comment that staff have grown in confidence, encouraging otherteam members to work more effectively and identifying opportunities to increaserevenue.TheInvestment Administration Manage-ment Award is a joint-venture project betweenourselves, the investment funds trade association; Edexcel, the leadingawarding body; and MDA, a training provider with relevant expertise.  Successful participants are given a BtecProfessional Development Award.    VictoriaNyeDirector, training and educationAssociation of Unit Trusts and Investment Funds Related posts:No related photos.
