When Emma Walmsley took over as CEO of GlaxoSmithKline (LSE:GSK) she talked about “courage”.GSK has often felt a little like a sleeping giant. The share price peaked in 1999, but over the last five years have increased by a mere 10%. The dividend remains attractive, and maybe that’s what we want from companies like GSK, whose shares are often the stalwart of a portfolio designed to bring in income — low risk, boring, safe.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…The latest results revealed an 8% increase in sales and a 4% increase in earnings. The sales performance was on par with expectations, the earnings a little below. Shares fell modestly.That’s GSK, not exactly exciting.But GSK is being divided into a sexy and non-sexy business — not that the company uses those words.There will be the consumer healthcare business, which will be part of a joint venture with Pfizer — that’s I would call the non-sexy part. And there will be the biopharma business, which is the part that requires courageous staff. This is the part that I think will be the real growth stock.The biotech revolutionI reckon that the pharmaceuticals and biotech sector is on the verge of a revolution. Advances in computer power seen over the course of this century may lie behind it. Developments in genome sequencing, AI, nanotechnology, and the remarkable potential of gene editing via a technology known as CRISPR/cas 9 (perhaps the world’s single most important discovery in the century so far) are creating extraordinary opportunity.It is certain that companies that stick with tried and tested formulae, timidity their stock-in-trade, will not be the ones to benefit from this opportunity.That’s why when I heard Emma Walmsley talk about the need for courage among staff, it was music to my ears.So, how’s it going? Is GSK really more daring these days, and if it dares, will it win?The latest results contained morsels to whet my appetite. I am not saying “corr” about the company yet, but maybe I will soon.In the transcript from the GSK earnings call yesterday, the word ‘data’ was mentioned 51 times. AI and ML (machine learning) was also referred to. I was especially pleased to see Hal Barron, GSK’s head of R&D talk about setting up a laboratory for genomics research to be headed by none other than Jennifer Doudna and Jonathan Weissman, the pioneers behind CRISPR.I think that Emma Walmsley has been successfully editing the GSK corporate DNA, such that if GSK was a sleeping giant, it is now awake. The shares might not quite shoot up like Jack’s beanstalk, but I think the company is well placed to benefit from the biotech revolution.I am expecting an exciting five years ahead for GSK shares. I think GSK, at least part of it, is becoming sexy again.   Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Michael Baxter | Thursday, 6th February, 2020 | More on: GSK Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

first_img News June 28, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two journalists arrested as pressure mounts on privately-owned media EthiopiaAfrica Receive email alerts Ethiopia arbitrarily suspends New York Times reporter’s accreditation Reporters Without Borders condemns the arrests of two journalists working for privately-owned newspapers in the past few days.The latest victim is Reyot Alemu, a young woman reporter for the Amharic-language weekly Fitih, who was arrested on 21 June, two days after the arrest of Woubeshet Taye, the deputy editor of the Amharic-language Awramba Times. Both are now the subject of a judicial investigation and are being held at the Addis Ababa centre for federal investigations in Maekelawi.The authorities have not announced any charges, but it is believed they are accused of links with “terrorist” organizations. “We call on the Ethiopian government to quickly account for these arrests, which have been carried out in an irregular manner and in which the legal limit for police custody (48 hours) has been exceeded,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The mystery surrounding their detention is unacceptable. These shady methods suggest a desire to stifle outspoken media and impose a news blackout on government abuses by scaring journalists and pressuring them to censor themselves on a regular basis. We demand their immediate release and the withdrawal of the proceedings against them.”“We are very disturbed by these arrests, which seem to have been carried out under an anti-terrorism law adopted in July 2009 and in accordance with a revision of government security policy two weeks ago. By accusing journalists of links with terrorist organizations, the government could be paving the way for repressive measures against independent media that will jeopardize diversity of opinion.”After arresting Alemu, police searched her home and seized articles she had written, CDs and copies of the weekly with the apparent aim of using this material as evidence of “terrorist activities.” After Taye was arrested by federal police at his home on 19 June, he was held in the utmost secrecy at the Maekelawi federal investigations centre before reportedly being taken before a court on 21 June. It is believed he could be accused of links with Ginbot 7, an opposition group which parliament recently declared to be a “terrorist” organization.The authorities have had Taye in their sights for years and he had to resign as the editor of the Awramba Times following the media regulation agency’s constant harassment of the weekly in June 2010.

Since 2013, the company has transferred a portion of credit risk on approximately $872 billion of UPB on single-family mortgages.

He is a University of Alabama graduate with a degree in journalism and a minor in communications. He has worked for publications—both print and online—covering numerous beats. A Connecticut native, Albanese currently resides in Lewisville. Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Commentary from realtor.com found that despite the impacts of COVID-19, a recession, a presidential election, and disputes over systemic racism, the housing market is not only rebounding but surging.Realtor.com reported median home prices rose 6.2% annually for the week ending on June 27. Homes are selling faster than they did in 2019 and bidding wards are rising.A prior Redfin report that more than half of its offers faced competition in June. Specifically, 54% of homes offer placed by the real estate agency’s representatives faced bidding wars. This marks the second consecutive month that the bidding-war rate for new home purchases has been on the rise.”The housing recovery has been nothing short of remarkable,” says Ali Wolf, Chief Economist of Meyers Research, a national real estate consultancy. “The expectation was that housing would be crushed. It was—for about two months—and then it came roaring back.”Additionally, realtor.com revealed 61% of consumers said it was a good time to buy, according to data from Fannie Mae. This is a 9-percentage point increase from May. Also, 41% of respondents said it was a good time to sell—also a 9-percentage point increase from the past month.That optimism translated to a surge of mortgage applications for home purchases. They rose 33.2% year over year in the week ending July 3, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association.Another moment of optimism that came earlier this month was when Black Knight announced that active forbearance plans fell an additional 435,000 weekly—the largest drop since the onset of the pandemic.As of July 7, 4.14 million homeowners were in forbearance plans, which represents 7.8% of all active mortgages—down from the prior week’s 8.6%. This represents around $900 billion in unpaid principal.Black Knight stated that 6% of all GSE-backed loans and 11.6% of loans backed by the Federal Housing Administration and the VA are currently in forbearance plans. An additional 8.2% of loans in private-label securities (PLS) are also in forbearance.GSE loans saw the largest declines in forbearances, falling by 200,000—an 11% drop. Portfolio and PLS also fell by 11%, which is 136,000 fewer active forbearance plans.FHA and VA loans saw marginal improvements, dipping 6% for a reduction of 93,000.”This latest decline in the number of homeowners in active forbearance is an encouraging sign of continued improvement,” said Andy Walden, Economist and Director of Market Research for Black Knight. “The reduction of roughly 435,000—the largest single-week drop yet—was driven at least in part by the fact that more than half of all active forbearance plans entering the month were set to expire at the end of June. While the majority of those have been extended, this week’s data suggests a significant share were not.” Subscribelast_img read more

first_imgTop StoriesBREAKING : Allahabad High Court Says Compensation Must Be At Least ₹ One Crore For Death Of Polling Officers Due To COVID During Election Duty Akshita Saxena11 May 2021 12:29 PMShare This – xThe Court has asked UP Government and State Election Commission to reconsier the Rs 30 lakh compensation announced.The Allahabad High Court on Tuesday observed that the State must grant at least Rs. 1 crore as ex-gratia compensation to the families of polling officers who died due to COVID-19 while after the UP Panchayat polls. “It is not a case that somebody volunteered to render his/ her services during election but it was all made obligatory to those assigned with election duty to perform their duties during election even while they showed their reluctance,” observed a Division Bench of Justices Siddhartha Varma and Ajit Kumar. Delete BREAKING : Allahabad High Court says compensation must be at least Rs One Crore for death of those officers who died due to COVID-19 while performing election duties during UP local body election, as it was mandatory for them to perform their duties.#UttarPradesh#COVID19India pic.twitter.com/Y1d9gW7G8p— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) May 11, 2021 On Friday, the UP Government had announced compensation of Rs. 30,00,000/- for the bereaved families. After Allahabad HC’s Notice To SEC, UP Govt. Announces 30 Lakh Compensation For Families Of Polling Officers Who Succumbed To Covid-19 Today, the High Court observed that the amount of compensation is very less and the families must be granted at least Rs. 1 crore as compensation for the loss of their loved ones. “To compensate the loss of life of the bread earner of the family and that too because of the deliberate act on the part of the State and State Election Commission to force them to perform duties in the absence of RTPCR support, the compensation must be at least to the tune of Rs.1,00,00,000/-” it observed. It further noted that the State Government as well as State Election Commission were well aware of the threat of pandemic and yet the teachers, investigators and Shiksha Mitras were forced to take risk. “It appears that neither the police nor, Election Commission did anything to save the people on election duty from getting infected by this deadly virus,” the High Court had said earlier. “We hope that the State Election Commission and Government will rethink over the amount of the compensation and come back to us on the next date fixed,” the Bench said. In related development, a Single Bench of Justice Siddhartha of the Allahabad High Court observed that the Election Commission, the Higher Courts and the Government failed to fathom the disastrous consequences of permitting the elections in few States and the Panchayat elections in the State of Uttar Pradesh.Last month, the High Court had taken judicial notice of reports about the death of 135 persons, who died after contracting COVID during their election duty.”It appears that neither the police nor, Election Commission did anything to save the people on election duty from getting infected by this deadly virus”, the Court had observed then.In April first week, the High Court had dismissed a plea seeking postponement of the UP Panchayat elections amid COVID second wave, saying state has put in place adequate safety protocols.
