Why are the Irish banks still in such a mess?

first_img Tags: NULL KCS-content Wednesday 25 August 2010 8:56 pm IRISH banks seem unable to shake off the financial crisis, in fact they seem to be in worse shape now then at the start of the year. The main casualty is Anglo Irish Bank, which threatens to squash the economic recovery under an estimated €24bn of bad loans. It has already caused credit rating agency S&P to downgrade Ireland’s sovereign rating from AA to AA-. But how does a country with a population of 4m get itself into this position in the first place? Whereas the rest of the world suffered a financial crisis because of very complicated debt structures like CDO’s, Ireland’s banking crisis is essentially home grown. It boils down to the bursting of one of the largest property bubbles in history. The genesis of Ireland’s problems go back 10 years. “Until about 2000, growth had been on a secure export-led basis, underpinned by wage restraint. However, from about 2000 the character of the growth changed: a property price and construction bubble took hold,” wrote Patrick Honohan of Trinity College Dublin – now governor of the Irish Central Bank – in a report published in 2009. Anecdotal evidence of the scale of the boom is staggering. In one prosperous Dublin suburb an acre of land sold for over €80m in 2005.This is also a tale of hubris. Philip Lane, head of economics at Trinity College Dublin, notes that the banks are in trouble not because of homeowners defaulting on their mortgages, but as a result of a small number of property developers. These guys borrowed billions during the boom years and are now facing bankruptcy. Taxpayers have been consigned to spending huge sums to prop up the banks, including Anglo Irish, which ran aground after making bad loans. Former chief executive Sean Fitzpatrick took $114m in personal loans over eight years at the bank, but recently declared bankruptcy. The government has been investigating.What is most startling in Honohan’s report is his refusal to blame the international financial crisis for Ireland’s problems. It would have happened anyway, the straight-talking central banker says, and the collapse of Lehman Brothers in autumn 2008 only exacerbated the Irish banks’ funding problems. The end of Honohon’s report sums up this chapter in Ireland’s history: “The Celtic Tiger period represented a solid convergence of Ireland to the frontier. But it ended in 2000, to be succeeded by an old-fashioned property bubble.” At least its central bank governor is under no delusion of what caused the crisis. It took a decade to grow, it may take a decade to unwind.

I think these 2 FTSE 100 stocks could surge

first_img Jay Yao | Tuesday, 19th January, 2021 | More on: HSBA STAN “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Many FTSE 100 stocks had a year to forget last year, with the overall index down 14.3% in 2020. Due to the pandemic, the leading British index fell the most since the global financial crisis.Among the FTSE 100’s components, financial giants such as HSBC (LSE:HSBA) and Standard Chartered (LSE: STAN) also lagged as both banks had to suspend their dividends in the early part of 2020.5G 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…While each bank fell sharply last year, I reckon there is potential for both stocks to surge this year. Here’s why.FTSE 100 stocks: Biden stimulusThe first reason I think FTSE 100 stocks HSBC and Standard Chartered stock could surge in 2021 is due to potential developments in the US.With a pair of Senate wins in Georgia, the Democrats will control both Congress and the presidency for the first time since Barack Obama’s first term. Given that control of the Senate, the Democrats have a higher likelihood of passing a bigger stimulus plan. If the Democrats are able to pass a sizeable stimulus, US economic growth could be higher than expected.A strong US economic recovery would also be a boost to many nations that the US does trade with and potentially help their growth (especially in emerging markets) as well. If that happens, I think HSBC and Standard Chartered could benefit given their exposure to developing markets.More sizeable stimulus could also translate into faster interest rate normalisation down the road. If the market expects faster interest rate normalisation, I reckon HSBC and Standard Chartered’s valuation could strengthen. Banks often make more money in higher interest rate environments.China recoveryI think another reason to be bullish on FTSE 100 stocks HSBC and Standard Chartered is the rather fast economic recovery in China.Because it has largely contained the pandemic, China’s economy has quickly recovered. According to Reuters, the nation’s GDP rose 6.5% year over year in the final quarter of 2020, up from 4.9% in the third quarter. Many analysts expect continued strong growth this year as well. The fast economic recovery in China is good news for HSBC, which gets a lot of profits from Hong Kong. Given how connected Hong Kong is with China, the city benefits from a strong Chinese economy.The rather fast recovery of China’s economy is also good news for many countries that trade with China. With a stronger Chinese economy, demand for the commodities and goods/services that many countries produce is also stronger.Stronger demand for commodities is good news for HSBC given its exposure to the sector. Standard Chartered also benefits from stronger growth from many countries that China does trade with.Would I buy these shares?Given the positive factors that I’ve noted, I’d be happy to buy either HSBC or Standard Chartered. Both stocks are trading well below their book values and could begin to return capital to shareholders again this year. HSBC’s price-to-book ratio is around 0.58 and Standard Chartered’s is around 0.47. If investor sentiment is positive enough and management of the two banks are successful in executing their plans, I think both stocks could surge this year as the market anticipates potentially continued growth in emerging markets and more normal interest rates in the future.

En todos los lugares afectados, iglesias locales están poniéndose en contacto con sus comunidades para evaluar las necesidades y acompañar a la gente que lidia con las secuelas inmediatas de la emergencia. Además de los cuidados pastorales, las iglesias están proporcionando asistencia de vivienda y suministros de emergencia, como alimentos, agua, combustible y otras necesidades específicas de los lugares.En Texas llovió hasta 20 pulgadas entre el 17 y el 18 de abril, en partes del norte y el noroeste del Condado de Harris, afectando la ciudad de Houston y zonas aledañas. El gobernador de Texas, Greg Abbott, declaró un estado de emergencia en Harris y en otros ocho condados en reacción a este evento, en el que 8 personas perdieron la vida, se inundaron más de 1,100 viviendas y hubo daños de más de US$5,000 millones.En esta etapa temprana de la reacción, la Diócesis Episcopal de Texas empleará Equipos de Cuidados Espirituales para evaluar las necesidades e identificar supervivientes vulnerables que se puedan beneficiar de ayuda para solicitar asistencia y pasar por su proceso de recuperación. Apoyados en parte por Episcopal Relief & Development, los equipos podrán brindar cuidados pastorales y tarjetas de regalo para las necesidades inmediatas, así como ofrecer ayuda para el pago de alquileres de viviendas temporales en los casos en que la gente haya sido evacuada de sus hogares y no pueda permanecer en un refugio. Los equipos están organizados por el Ven. Russ Oechsel, archidiácono de Texas y Coordinador Diocesano de Desastres desde hace mucho tiempo.“Desgraciadamente, la Diócesis de Texas tiene mucha experiencia en responder a desastres de esta índole por haber sufrido de todo, desde el huracán Ike en Galveston hasta los incendios en tierras incultas en Bastrop”, dijo Katie Mears, directora del Programa de Desastres en EE UU de Episcopal Relief & Development. “La diócesis aporta tantos dones a esta reacción: un coordinador diocesano experto y sumamente capaz, una red de voluntarios capacitados, una enorme cantidad de conocimientos y relaciones desarrollados en desastres pasados y una robusta red de iglesias y ministerios con excelentes vínculos en la comunidad. Como siempre, apoyamos a nuestros asociados en su trabajo de asistencia y en el proceso de recuperación, y oramos por ellos y por sus familias y por las comunidades en las que trabajan”.En Ecuador, al menos 570 personas perdieron la vida y 155 han sido declaradas desaparecidas tras un terremoto de magnitud 7.8 ocurrido el 16 de abril, centrado cerca del litoral ecuatoriano. La Secretaría de Gestión de Riesgos de Ecuador informa que hubo más de 7,000 lesionados y que 25,000 personas están en refugios de emergencia. Entretanto, fuertes réplicas siguen conmocionando el país, obstaculizando los esfuerzos de búsqueda y rescate y prolongando el trauma del desplazamiento y la incertidumbre. Se ha declarado un estado de emergencia en 6 provincias, con acceso a zonas impactadas limitado a causa de la destrucción de carreteras y de otras infraestructuras. El peor daño fue informado en Pedernales, una ciudad costera con 55,000 habitantes que fue declarada “zona de desastre”.Hay una fuerte presencia de la Iglesia Episcopal en comunidades afectadas por los terremotos. Especialmente dos de ellas, San Esteban, en el barrio de Cuba, y San José, en el cercano 15 de Abril, se están movilizando para alcanzar a 300 familias en las zonas más afectadas, con apoyo de Episcopal Relief & Development mediante la Diócesis Litoral de la Iglesia Episcopal de Ecuador (parte de la Provincia IX de la Iglesia Episcopal). Las necesidades más inmediatas son alimentos, agua, ropa y otros artículos, como mosquiteros y suministros de primeros auxilios. Las iglesias también proporcionan cuidados pastorales y coordinan con organizaciones civiles y gubernamentales para facilitar los esfuerzos de ayuda y concientizar sobre las necesidades de sus comunidades.“Estoy sumamente agradecido a nuestras iglesias asociadas en Ecuador, que inmediatamente se movilizaron para evaluar las necesidades en sus comunidades”, dijo Nagulan Nesiah, Funcionario del Programa de Reacción a Desastres y Reducción del Riesgo de Episcopal Relief & Development. “La vulnerabilidad es una experiencia cotidiana para muchos, es por eso que las conexiones a largo plazo y los cuidados de la Iglesia en la comunidad son sumamente valiosos cuando ocurren desastres y algunas personas pueden pasar desapercibidas”.Episcopal Relief & Development también transmitió oraciones y ofreció apoyo a la Nippon Sei Ko Kai (NSKK, la Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana de Japón) tras el terremoto de Kumamoto, ocurrido el 16 de abril. Hay 45 muertes confirmadas y las actividades de búsqueda y rescate continúan.Por favor ore por las personas impactadas por estos eventos recientes y por los que están proporcionando la ayuda y asistencia que tan urgentemente se necesita.Hay disponibles encartes para boletines dirigidos a generar toma de conciencia y apoyo a los esfuerzos de ayuda de Episcopal Relief & Development en Ecuador y Texas:Media página inglés (PDF) (JPG)Media página español (PDF) (JPG)Para apoyar las actividades de ayuda de Episcopal Relief & Development en Ecuador y Texas, por favor done al International Disaster Response Fund o al US Disaster Response Fund, respectivamente.Por más de 75 años, Episcopal Relief & Development (La Agencia Episcopal de Alivio y Desarrollo) se ha desempeñado como una compasiva reacción al sufrimiento humano en el mundo. La agencia trabaja con más de 3 millones de personas en cerca de 40 países del mundo entero para combatir la pobreza, el hambre y las enfermedades mediante programas multisectoriales empleando Objetivos de Desarrollo Sustentable como un marco de referencia. Como una organización independiente sin ánimo de lucro de tipo 501(c)(3), trabaja en estrecha colaboración con la Comunión Anglicana y con socios ecuménicos para ayudar a las comunidades a crear estrategias de desarrollo a largo plazo y a reconstruir después de haber sido afectadas por un desastre.

March 6, 2018 at 3:26 pm Joseph Alice Nolan, a candidate for the Seat #2 Apopka City Commission, has had three civil suits filed against her by Midland Funding LLC, Capital One Bank, and Wells Fargo Bank, according to the Orange County Clerk of Court’s website. The status of all three cases is pending. The lawsuits range from $1,094.33 to $6,566.59 and were filed from 2016-2018, according to documents found on the site.Nolan released this statement on her campaign’s Facebook page yesterday:“There are situations in our lives that happen to us and there is no way to prepare for it. Six years ago I had a very difficult pregnancy and I was very fortunate to have given birth to what we thought was a healthy baby boy. A month after he was born we found ourselves in a hospital planning his funeral. My son was two rooms over on life support, with no explanation on how he got to that point. When the doctor walked in several hours after being at the hospital with the priest we find out that IF God willing he gets healthy enough for surgery he will have open heart surgery. The doctors were not hopeful at all that he would ever be healthy enough for surgery. But after several days of being on life support, he was rushed into the CVPICU OR where he had 8-hour open heart surgery that no one was for sure was going to work. My son had to stay in the hospital for a month for recovery and for the first year of his life we had several more visits to the hospital because his heart kept flooding. During this time with the cost of medical, the hours of work we missed, travel, and all the other expenses I had racked up several credit cards. In the six years, I have paid all but three of those credit cards and have recently started working on one of the last three. I am hopeful if I keep on the track I am on I will have them paid off by next year. This is a moment in my life that I could not prepare for or imagine to happen to me. I am personally proud of the fast pace I have paid off this debt and did not give up even when times were tough. This is something that is very personal to me and it hurts my heart that people want to dredge this up when they refuse to go to the source to ask why I made the decisions I made. I hope this clears up any confusion or misconceptions that are out there. If anyone has questions please come to me and ask.” Alice, don’t let these people, whoever they are, bringing these matters up, to smear you during this election campaign, get to you. I know it is hard to take, but who are they to judge you? I for one, will not judge you, and decent people in this community won’t either, now that you have made it clear to them, in this article with your statement, what caused you these financial problems with these lawsuits, due to your baby son’s surgery back when he was born, and his ongoing medical needs. God bless you Alice, and keep your chin up, and things will work out for you and your family, I am 100% certain. If you need me, as someone to talk to, just call me.

Somaliland authorities free newspaper reporter after seven days

He had been held since 12 July because of a controversial article about the swearing-in of a traditional leader. He was freed after the Somaliland Journalists Association (SOLJA), Jamhuuriya’s management and local human rights activists went to see the traditional leader concerned.——————–18.07.2007 – Reporter held since 12 July by Somaliland authorities, no reason givenReporters Without Borders today condemned the detention of Abdirahman Mohammed Habane of Jamhuuriya, a daily newspaper based in Hargeisa, the capital of the breakaway state of Somaliland. He has been held since 12 July.“The hostility of the Somaliland authorities towards journalists must stop,” the press freedom organisation said. “Habane is the second journalist to be arrested in three weeks. None of the basic rights that should be accorded to any detainee has been respected. They have not even given a reason for his arrest. The status of this self-proclaimed independent state offers no excuse for failing to adhere to legal procedure.”Criminal investigation police arrested Habane in the town of Borame, in the Awdal region, on 12 July. According to the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ), the Reporters Without Borders partner organisation in Somalia, he was arrested because of a controversial article on 5 July in which he referred to incidents that took place during the swearing-in of an elder as the local chief. The article caused a stir among those who had supported or opposed the choice of the elder.The fact that Habane works for Jamhuuriya may have been a factor in the decision to arrest him. The newspaper has often been the target of harassment from the Somaliland government. Its editor, Hassan Said Yusuf, has been arrested 15 times in the past 10 years.Held initially at the Borame police station, Habane has been transferred to a detention centre in Hargeisa.
