Goldman Sachs said Nokia’s shares offered long-term opportunity for value after falling around 30 per cent from early February when the firm decided to dump its Symbian software platform in favour of Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7. It is understood Microsoft paid Nokia $1bn (£600m) to develop handsets to run the platform.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. This year overall was very tough for the Cineworld (LSE:CINE) share price. But in one week, the stock has managed to rise by 23%. For shareholders, is this worth celebrating?Cineworld share price surgeMy colleague Jonathan was probably right in saying that the lockdown easing might have been behind the rally in Cineworld stock. Many restrictions were lifted in the UK on 15 August. Some cinemas only started reopening on 21 August, but Cineworld had reopened its UK sites on 31 July. Indeed, it looks like the situation with cinema visits has improved overall compared to April. In theory, there should be a boost to the company’s revenue.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…But let us not forget that Cineworld is an international cinema chain. This means it is reliant on many countries’ regulations. Of its locations, 70% are located in the US. The UK market is important for the company too, with 128 cinemas operating here. The map below shows just how important each country is for the firm’s revenue.Source: CineworldIn the US, the cinema chain started reopening a week ago. Cineworld reopened a third of its theatres on 21 August. Another third resumed operations on Tuesday, with the final third reopening on Friday. As concerns Europe, most EU countries have reopened cinemas long ago. All that sounds very positive for the Cineworld share price and the company’s cash inflows. But is it too early for the shareholders to drink Champagne? Coronavirus fearsAlthough the lockdown easing rally is quite pleasing, the coronavirus fears are here to stay, I think. In spite of all the safety measures in place, many customers are still unwilling to go out. What’s more, social distancing and all the extra precautions might in fact discourage people from going to cinemas. They may simply not feel comfortable and relaxed, while following these regulations.  But most importantly there’s the possibility of a second lockdown both in the UK and the US. Although the infection rates have stabilised somewhat, it is quite likely that there’ll be another Covid-19 wave. So, the possibility remains that governments might have to ban indoor public gatherings. As concerns the Cineworld’s financial position, it is not perfect. The company’s credit rating is B3, which is speculative or high risk. That’s mainly because of the high debt level. At the same time, ratings agency Moody’s considers the company’s cash balance to be sound because of the money it has borrowed. What’s more, the company is also now leaner and fitter because of its cost-cutting initiatives.But the key question here is when will the pandemic be over. There’s plenty of uncertainty here but I personally believe that it might last for a while. Obviously, the longer it lasts, the worse it is for the company.Will the Cineworld stock rally continue?Technically, the rally can continue for a while. The 52-week high reached by the Cineworld share price was 244.70p. Now the stock is trading at around 60p per share. So, it seems that there is some potential for growth. At the same time, I still think that there’s not enough clarity right now. Overall, I think it’s too early for the shareholders to celebrate. The Cineworld stock might be an attractive investment for people willing to accept some additional risks. Otherwise, I’d recommend conservative investors to look elsewhere.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.last_img read more

Media barred from trials of regime opponents

first_img News RSF_en March 8, 2021 Find out more Organisation Follow the news on Syria May 24, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Media barred from trials of regime opponents News to go further News February 3, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts News SyriaMiddle East – North Africa Toll of ten years of civil war on journalists in Syria SyriaMiddle East – North Africa Journalists have been barred from covering recent state security court trials of regime opponents, including the elderly Riad Al-Turk (photo), for”spreading false information.” Reporters Without Borders protested to Syria today about the exclusion of journalists from recent trials of regime opponents and said it showed that the authorities there had “no wish to answer to international public opinion” for their rule.”This attitude is clearly a sign of the hardening of the regime and the jailing of these opponents shows a complete contempt for freedom of expression,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to interior minister Ali Hamud.”We urge you to reverse this decision and allow the media and international observers to attend the next hearings of these cases.” Journalists were barred from the second hearing on 19 May in the state security court trial of regime opponent Riad Al-Turk (see photo), except for a reporter from the government-controlled news agency SANA. They had been allowed to attend the first hearing on 28 April.Turk, a 71-year-old communist ex–lawyer, was arrested last 1 September after having called for a “transition from dictatorship to democracy” during a meeting at a private home in Damascus last 6 August. In mid-August, he appeared on the Qatari TV station Al-Jazeera and criticised President Bashar el-Assad. He had already spent 17 years in prison without trial before being released in 1998.When the trial of Habib Issa and Walid Buni opened before the state security court on 14 May, journalists and diplomats were not allowed in except, again, for a SANA reporter. The defence lawyers refused to allow the judge to start cross-examining and demanded that the trial be open to the public. The next hearing for Buni, a doctor and member of a civil society organisation, has been set for 12 June and for Issa, a lawyer, former journalist and spokesman of the Jamil el-Atassi meeting club, for 19 June. “The things they are accused of saying are simply free expression – just words, statements, press articles and remarks in political company,” lawyer Abdel Azim told the Agence France-Presse.Journalists were also not allowed into the state security court trial on 9 May of economist Aref Dalila and businessman Habib Saleh. The same went for diplomats and the families of the accused. The next hearing will be on 3 June.Turk, Issa, Buni, Dalila and Saleh are among a group of opposition activists arrested last summer and charged with “trying to change the Constitution by illegal means, incitement to religious dissent and sedition, spreading false information and trying to harm the image of the state.” Two members of parliament in the group, Riad al-Seif and Mamoun Homsi, were jailed for five years each by the criminal court in Damascus on 4 April for having allegedly tried to change the Constitution “by unlawful means.”Last August and September, several foreign journalists based in Damascus were repeatedly intimidated by the authorities just as these major civil society figures were being arrested. Some were warned not to write anything about the arrests.

HSBC Agrees to Pay Nearly Half a Billion to Settle Mortgage Abuse Allegations

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Home / Featured / HSBC Agrees to Pay Nearly Half a Billion to Settle Mortgage Abuse Allegations Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Xhevrije West is a talented writer and editor based in Dallas, Texas. She has worked for a number of publications including The Syracuse New Times, Dallas Flow Magazine, and Bellwethr Magazine. She completed her Bachelors at Alcorn State University and went on to complete her Masters at Syracuse University. By July 2016, HSBC will complete $370 million in creditable consumer relief directly to borrowers and homeowners in the form of reducing the principal on mortgages for borrowers who are at risk of default, reducing mortgage interest rates, forgiving forbearance and other forms of relief.  The relief to homeowners has been underway and will likely provide more than $370 million in direct benefits to borrowers because HSBC will not be permitted to claim credit for every dollar spent on the required consumer relief. About Author: Xhevrije West Subscribe Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Is Rise in Forbearance Volume Cause for Concern? 2 days ago  Print This Post Related Articles HSBC will be required to implement standards for the servicing of mortgage loans, the handling of foreclosures and for ensuring the accuracy of information provided in federal bankruptcy court.  These standards are designed to prevent foreclosure abuses of the past, such as robo-signing, improper documentation and lost paperwork, and create new consumer protections.  The standards provide for oversight of foreclosure processing, including third-party vendors, and new requirements to undertake pre-filing reviews of certain documents filed in bankruptcy court.  The servicing standards ensure that foreclosure is a last resort by requiring HSBC to evaluate homeowners for other loss-mitigation options first.  In addition, the standards restrict HSBC from foreclosing while the homeowner is being considered for a loan modification.“Mortgage servicers have a responsibility to help struggling borrowers remain in their home, not to push them into foreclosure,” said General Counsel Helen Kanovsky of HUD.  “This agreement is another example of how multiple agencies in the federal government and state attorneys general across the country are working to make sure the mortgage industry treats consumers fairly.” HSBC Agrees to Pay Nearly Half a Billion to Settle Mortgage Abuse Allegations Share Savecenter_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Tagged with: Department of Justice HSBC Setttlements Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago February 5, 2016 1,728 Views in Featured, News Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced Friday that HSBC Bank has reached a settlement with several federal agencies and almost every state attorney general regarding “mortgage origination, servicing, and foreclosure abuses.”HUD, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and 49 state attorneys general and the District of Columbia’s attorney general, were all other parties involved in the settlement.According to the DOJ, HSBC has agreed to pay $470 million in consumer relief and payments to federal and state parties, and will now be bound to mortgage servicing standards and be subject to independent monitoring of its compliance with the agreement.“This agreement is the result of a coordinated effort between federal and state partners to hold HSBC accountable for abusive mortgage practices,” said Acting Associate Attorney General Stuart F. Delery. “The Department of Justice remains committed to rooting out financial fraud and holding bad actors accountable for their actions.”Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Benjamin C. Mizer, head of the Justice Department’s Civil Division noted,”This settlement illustrates the department’s continuing commitment to ensure responsible mortgage servicing. The agreement is part of our ongoing effort to address root causes of the financial crisis.”“Even as the mortgage crisis recedes, the U.S. Trustee Program will continue to combat mortgage servicer abuse of the federal bankruptcy laws so that homeowners are given their legal right to try to save their homes,” said Director Cliff White of the Justice Department’s U.S. Trustee Program. “Homeowners in financial distress sometimes depend on chapter 13 bankruptcy to help them catch up on their payments. When banks violate bankruptcy laws at the expense of homeowners and other creditors, they must pay a price. This settlement holds HSBC accountable for its actions and helps to protect the most vulnerable homeowners.”The Federal Reserve also hit HSBC with a $131 million penalty on Friday “for deficiencies in residential mortgage loan servicing and foreclosure processing,” according to an separate, but related, announcement on their site.The Fed said that the penalty reviewed HSBC’s “unsafe and unsound practices and foreclosure activities” and can be resolved by “providing borrower assistance or remediation in conjunction with the Department of Justice settlement, or by providing funding for nonprofit housing counseling organizations.”If HSBC does not satisfy the full penalty amount within two years, the remaining amount must be paid to the U.S. Department of Treasury, the Fed noted.HSBC was not immediately available for comment at the time of publication.According to the DOJ, under the terms of the agreement in the settlement, HSBC is required to:Pay $100 million: $40.5 million to be paid to the settling federal parties; $59.3 million to be paid into an escrow fund administered by the states to make payments to borrowers who lost their homes to foreclosure between 2008 and 2012; and $200,000 to be paid into an escrow fund to reimburse the state attorneys general for investigation costs.
