The insurer, formerly known as Fortis, reported profits of £16.6m for the first nine months of the year, 50 per cent lower than the previous year’s profits of £33.2m. Ageas also blamed lower investment yields compared to last year for the lower set of results.

The committee will publish a keenly awaited draft later this year for dealing with a bank’s bonds when capital levels move below minimum requirements but the lender’s problems are not yet terminal.“Tier 2 capital instruments [mainly subordinated debt], and in some cases Tier 1 instruments, did not absorb losses incurred by certain … banks that would have failed had the public sector not provided support,” the committee added. center_img KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Thursday 13 January 2011 8:38 pm Basel tightens rules on bank hybrid debt last_img read more

Centamin’s share price just crashed. Here’s what I’d do now

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Edward Sheldon, CFA | Friday, 2nd October, 2020 | More on: CEY Image source: Getty Images. Enter Your Email Address Shares in gold miner Centamin (LSE: CEY) have crashed today. As I write this, Centamin’s share price is down 22% to 157p.So why did the FTSE 250 gold miner’s share price crash? And what should an investor do about it?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…Centamin: Reduced production outlookThe reason behind the miner’s share price tumble today is that the company has announced it is reducing its production forecast for the fourth quarter of 2020.In an operational update, Centamin advised that it has detected movement in a localised area of waste material in its Sukari mine. As a result, it has decided to immediately defer open pit mining operations in this zone. This decision is a preventative measure to protect the health and safety of its workforce and the long-term potential of the Sukari gold mine.It expects that production for the fourth quarter will be reduced to approximately 70,000 ounces. That compares to preliminary gold production for the third quarter of approximately 120,000 ounces.Gold stocks are a risky way to invest in goldThis update today from Centamin is a great example of why I don’t invest in gold stocks and generally advise investors to steer clear of them.Gold stocks like Centamin can perform well when the gold price is rising. The higher the gold price, the higher the potential profits for a gold miner. But there’s no guarantee they will perform well. This is because there are so many moving parts to a gold mining company from an operational point of view. So many things can go wrong. All it takes is one operational blip, like we have seen today from Centamin, and the share price of a gold mining stock can crash 20% or more in the blink of an eye. A setback or delay in production can result in nasty losses for investors, even if the gold price is rising.I learned this the hard way. A little over a decade ago, I owned a number of gold mining stocks. Most turned out to be very poor long-term investments. Today, I avoid the sector completely.Better ways to make money from sharesIf you’re looking for growth stocks, my suggestion is to forget about gold mining stocks and focus on stocks in other sectors of the market. Gold stocks are just too unpredictable.One sector that offers a lot of attractive opportunities right now is technology. Many UK tech companies are benefiting from the digital revolution the world is experiencing. Some names that stand out to me in this sector include ASOS and Boohoo, which are both benefiting from the shift to online shopping, and Softcat and Gamma Communications, which are both benefiting from the work-from-home trend.In my view, these kinds of highly profitable businesses are much better long-term investments than gold stocks such as Centamin. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Edward Sheldon owns shares in ASOS, Boohoo, Softcat, and Gamma Communications.

TCU Football: Breaking down the defense

first_imgFacebook Twitter Sydney Ringdahlhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sydney-ringdahl/ ReddIt printTCU football is known for its defense.The Horned Frogs totaled 26 interceptions last season — 11 more than the next best Big 12 teams, Kansas State and Texas, who each had 15.  Head coach Gary Patterson’s 4-2-5 defense is uniquely designed to slow and ideally stop the offenses that have been bombarding defenses. DEFENSIVE LINEThe defensive line is the deepest and most experienced part of the defense, led by seniors James McFarland and Davion Pierson. They will be heavily relied on to be leaders of the defense and the team.Pierson is the foundation of the defensive front. He received 2015 Preseason All-Big 12 honors while also appearing on watch lists for the Chuck Bednarik Award, Rotary Lombardi Award and Outland Trophy.Pierson had 8 1/2 tackles for loss, including three sacks, among his 30 stops last season. He was a team captain in all 13 games.His 31 career starts lead all active team members going into his fourth year.Sophomore Chris Bradley came out of the spring in a first-team tackle position. He played in all 13 games as a freshman, recording 12 total tackles, including two for loss and 1 1/2 sacks.Junior Tevin Lawson played in all 25 games the last two seasons and is competing for a starting position.McFarland earned Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Defensive Most Valuable Player honors after an interception in the end zone for a touchdown, in addition to totaling two tackles for loss, including a sack last season.McFarland led TCU with seven sacks last season, while his 12 tackles for loss placed second. He also tied for the team lead with three forced fumbles. He totaled 41 stops on the year.Junior Josh Carraway is competing with McFarland at left end. Carraway, who had a team-best eight quarterback hurries, totaled five tackles for loss, including two sacks, last season. He also had a 33-yard interception return for a touchdown at Texas.Seniors Terrell Lathan and Mike Tuaua return at right end.Lathan’s 5 1/2 sacks last season were the third highest on the team, while his 10 tackles for loss ranked fourth. He also had a 40-yard fumble return for a touchdown at Texas.Tuaua, who appears on the watch list for the Polynesian Player of the Year Award, was among the TCU leaders with 8 1/2 tackles for loss and five sacks last year. He tied for the team lead with three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.LINEBACKERSA group of young players, including seven freshmen out of 10 linebackers on the 2015 roster, are competing to replace the experience and production of Paul Dawson and Marcus Mallet.Junior Sammy Douglas and true freshman Mike Freeze entered fall camp in first-team positions.Douglas saw most of his action on special teams last year. His eight special teams tackles tied for the team lead. He totaled 17 tackles last season.Freeze was an early enrollee who took part in spring drills. The Graham High School graduate was sidelined his senior season due to injury.Redshirt freshman Ty Summers is competing for a starting position. Summers suffered a season-ending injury in the 2014 opener and received a medical redshirt. CORNERBACKS Sophomore Ranthony Texada is a returning starter at one corner, while the other spot is under competition after the graduation of lockdown cornerback Kevin White.Texada earned Freshman All-America honors last season. He started all 13 games, while his seven pass breakups were second on the team. He had a sack against Oklahoma and an interception versus Iowa State.Sophomore Nick Orr, who saw action in 12 games as a true freshman and posted his first career interception in the win at SMU last season, will push Texada.Sophmore Torrance Mosley came out of the spring as the starter at the corner spot opposite Texada. Mosley appeared in five games as a true freshman last season.Pushing Mosley for a starting job will be senior Corry O’Meally and freshman DeShawn Raymond.O’Meally, a junior college transfer last season, saw action in eight games last season.SAFETYTCU plays with three safeties on the field: strong, weak, and free safety. Two safety positions will be filled with new faces after Sam Carter and Chris Hackett, both major parts of the Horned Frog defense as both leaders and players, graduated in May.Senior Derrick Kindred is the only returning starter at safety.At free safety, Kindred earned All-Big 12 honors after placing third on TCU last season with 80 tackles, including 4 1/2 for loss. His four interceptions, including one returned 44 yards for a touchdown versus Iowa State, tied for second on the team.Kindred appears on 2015 preseason watch lists for the Chuck Bednarik Award and Lott IMPACT Trophy.Pushing Kindred are Orr and sophomore Steve Wesley. Orr played in 12 games at cornerback as a true freshman last season and could contribute at that position as well in 2015. Wesley appeared in two games last season.Junior Denzel Johnson opened fall camp in a first-team position at strong safety. He totaled 16 tackles, including one for loss, while playing in all 13 games last season.Sophomore Travin Howard will compete with Johnson. Howard appeared in all 13 games as a true freshman last season, primarily contributing on special teams.The weak safety spot has senior Kenny Iloka and redshirt freshman Ridwan Issahaku in competition.Iloka arrived at TCU from Tyler Junior College last spring as the nation’s top-rated JC safety. He totaled 15 tackles in a back-up role to All-Big 12 selection Chris Hackett.The Horned Frogs have led the nation in total defense four times under Patterson. Last season, TCU gave up the fewest rushing yards per play and tied for the most interceptions nationally.TCU also led the Big 12 in nearly every meaningful defensive category last year, including scoring defense, total defense, and pass efficiency defense.

Prosecution of Taricani could be dropped after source identifies himself

Bevilacqua Jr., has identified himself to the authorities. An expert said this could result in the dropping of the case against Taricani for refusing to reveal his source. He was found in contempt of court on 18 November and sentencing was due on 9 December.————————————————————–19.11.2004 – Jim Taricani found guilty of criminal contempt of courtReporter Jim Taricani of WJAR-TV, who is refusing to name the person who gave him a videotape that was made in the course of an FBI undercover investigation into corruption, was found guilty of criminal contempt of court at the end of a 45-minute appearance before federal judge Ernest C. Torres yesterday and is now facing the possibility of six months in prison. The sentence will be announced on 9 December. The judge said, however, that it will take account of Taricani’s health. The reporter underwent heart surgery in 1996.The Democratic senator for Connecticut, Christopher J. Dodd, meanwhile today presented a bill on the protection of sources. It would prohibit federal courts, congress and the executive from forcing journalists to reveal their sources, whether or not they had promised confidentiality. The ban would include journalists’ notes, negatives and files. According to the bill, journalists would only be forced to a reveal a source if this information was decisive in a legal case, could not be obtained elsewhere and was of absolutely vital public interest.Dodd presented the bill on his own at the end of the congressional session, but promised to re-submit it at the start of the next session in January. He hopes to obtained bipartisan support, pointing out that several Republican-led states have laws protecting sources. In all, 31 states and the District of Columbia have such laws, but so far there is no federal legislation.————————————————————–17.11.2004 – Reporter faces six months jail for not revealing his sourceReporters Without Borders expressed concern today at a federal judge’s threat to imprison journalist Jim Taricani, of the Providence (Rhode Island) NBC TV station WJAR-TV, for up to six months if he did not say by tomorrow who gave him a secret FBI videotape made during a corruption enquiry.”If journalists have to reveal their confidential sources, nobody will risk telling them anything,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “The privacy of sources is at the heart of freedom of expression and we hope the judge will not carry out his threat.”The fine of more than $75,000 imposed on Taricani will clearly discourage journalists from publishing sensitive information despite its possible value to the public and society,” it said.Federal judge Ernest C. Torres ordered Taricani to pay a rolling fine of $1,000 a day on August 12, which amounted to more than $75,000 before the judge cancelled the fine on November 4, rejecting the prosecution’s call for the fine to be doubled.He then gave Taricani 14 days to reveal his source, after which he would be found guilty of contempt of court, which would thus be considered a criminal and not a civil offense and so punishable by up to six months in prison. Taricani refuses to tell the court who gave him the tape, which was broadcast on February 1st and showed a former top state official taking a bribe from an FBI informant.Another judge last month ordered the jailing of Time magazine reporter Matthew Cooper and New York Times reporter Judith Miller for refusing to say who illegally revealed to them the name of a CIA agent. Cooper was also fined $1,000 a day for the next 18 months or until he revealed the source. Both journalists have appealed, automatically suspending their sentences.
