Downward trend in share prices will not last long: Analysts

first_imgMSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan fell 0.7 percent, Japan’s Nikkei and Korea’s KOSPI were in the red, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng fell 0.6 percent and the Shanghai Composite was 0.1 percent weaker.Fears of the coronavirus outbreak, which has severely hurt the world’s second largest economy, also further undermined Indonesia’s economic growth, which has been stuck at about 5 percent for the past three years.Investors began to sideline the market as fears mounted. The volume of stocks traded in the last week of January was recorded at only 40.82 billion shares, with a total value of Rp 32.23 trillion, far lower than the 75.99 billion shares valued at Rp 80.98 trillion recorded during the same period last year, according to the IDX data. (ydp)Topics : Most securities analysts believe share prices on the local market have bottomed out, with many countries now committed to halting the spread of the virus. As of Saturday, the deadly virus has killed more than 813 people worldwide, mostly in China, and infected more than 37,549 people in over 25 countries, according to the Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE).“The drop in prices this month was mainly caused by panic selling amid fears over the spread of the coronavirus,” Artha Sekuritas Indonesia vice president Frederik Rasali told The Jakarta Post on Tuesday via text.Read also: BI injects $1.8b to stabilize Indonesian markets as investors flee over coronavirus fears Indonesian stock prices appear to have bottomed out following a nearly 6 percent drop in January as investors feared the spread of the coronavirus, which started in China in late December 2019, would further drag down global economic growth.The JCI, the main index at the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX), only gained a modest 1.7 percent in 2019 to close the year at 6,299 in the backdrop of sluggish economic growth. The index was under selling pressure through most of January due to fears over the impact of the coronavirus outbreak.Declining by 5.7 percent in January to close the month at 5,940, the index showed signs of recovery at the start of February following growing optimism that the outbreak could be kept under control. The JCI gained ground in the last two weeks to close at 5,999 on Friday. The JCI’s fall contrasts with the upward trend typically recorded in January, known as the “January effect” — a phenomenon wherein investors go on a shopping spree during the first month of the year.As documented by Bloomberg, between 2010 and 2020, the index’s performance fell only three times in the month of January. The index fell 7.95 percent in January 2011, 0.05 in January 2017 and 5.7 in January 2020. In other years, the index grew considerably, with the highest growth recorded in January 2019 at 5.46 percent.“[The downward trend] will not last for the long term, of course, because governments of each country have responded swiftly [to the outbreak],” said Frederik, adding that he predicted the index would return to the 6,000 level following the release of full year financial reports for 2019, which typically occurs before the end of February.Bank Negara Indonesia (BNI) Sekuritas’s head of research Kim Kwie Sjamsudin wrote in a report that during previous viral outbreaks, the market tended to bottom out several months after the first reported case.“As investors tend to overreact during the onset of a virus outbreak, the subsequent rebounds have been quite swift as well,” Kim wrote, adding that the JCI’s current valuation level offered “an attractive risk to risk to reward proposition”.Jakarta Composite Index (JCI) movement from March 2019 to Feb. 7, 2020.

German metal employers slam coalition’s basic pension deal

first_imgAccording to the agreement, the basic pension (Grundrente) is to be paid from January 2021 to anyone who has paid contributions for 35 years, with periods of parenting and caring for relatives counted. This will be subject to a comprehensive income test, but not an assessment of property.Gesamtmetall director general Oliver Zander said:  “Anyone who has paid little into the pension system over a lifetime is now getting a significantly higher pension — higher than the contributions he has made, and higher than the pension of other pensioners who have paid in more but don’t meet the requirements for the basic pension.”He said this new injustice would have to be made up for in a few years, and then the country would end up with a political unconditional minimum pension.“This has nothing to do with the basic principles of our pension system. It’s a break with the system,” Zander said.He accused the federal government of ignoring demographic change.“We do not know today how our country will pay the pension burden in 10 years. But instead of finally changing course and doing without more pension gifts, billions more euros are being added to the pensions burden,” he said.Anyone who pretended to be concerned about the future of young people should not support such a pension policy, said Zander.Also included in the coalition agreement are measures designed to strengthen the system of occupational pensions, reduce the contribution to unemployment insurance for a limited period, double the tax allowance for employee equity investments as well as the subsidy amount for low-paid occupational pensions.A fund for future technologies of up to €10bn, particularly in the areas of digitalisation and climate, is to be set up by the Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau.According to the wording of the pact, the parties aim to change the current situation where occupational pension payments trigger additional statutory health insurance (GKV) contributions, “in order to strengthen the acceptance and trust in occupational pensions”.They said the exemption limit for pensions would be changed into a “dynamic” free allowance, with a deduction creating relief for all compulsorily-insured company pension recipients.The resulting shortfall in contributions will be financed entirely by the GKV resources, according to the agreement. The lobby group for Germany’s largest industrial sector has harshly criticised a hard-won political compromise over a guaranteed state pension for working people.Gesamtmetall, which speaks for 23 member associations representing more than 7,100 companies in the metal and electrical engineering sector, branded the deal, formed on Sunday, a break from the principles of the German pension system.Chancellor Angela Merkel’s bloc, consisting of the CDU and CSU parties, agreed yesterday with the SPD — its coalition partner since early last year — a package to increase retirement income for what the SPD said would be as many as 1.5m long-term earners from 2021.The issue had been key for the SPD, and the failure so far to secure a deal was seen as a threat to the stability of the ruling coalition.last_img read more

REVIEW: The 1975 delivers another promising single on love in the digital age

first_img(Photo courtesy of Wikimedia Commons / Begoña from Errenteria, España) “If You’re Too Shy” sounds straight out of a coming-of-age movie, right when the main character and their love interest suddenly fall for each other in a dreamy montage sequence. Although that sort of fanciful scene probably won’t happen while social distancing, the song still makes you want to joyfully dance in your bedroom.   Along with Thursday’s release, the band has released the tracks “The Birthday Party” and “Jesus Christ 2005 God Bless America” as singles for its upcoming album. In comparison to these mellow tracks, “If You’re Too Shy” is more rose-tinted and tech-themed. An edit of “If You’re Too Shy” was also released with backup vocals from English singer and songwriter FKA Twigs.  The 1975 is back, with its seventh single from the highly anticipated upcoming album, “Notes On A Conditional Form.” Filled with catchy lyrics and a lively saxophone, the track “If You’re Too Shy (Let Me Know)” is the type of serotonin boost that we all need right now.  The band also released a black and white music video the same day, April 23, to accompany the new single. In the video, the group plays side-by-side with frontman Matty Healy sporting a punk aesthetic and happily dancing along to the song.  Throughout the song, Healy sings about wanting to see the girl he saw on the screen, an allusion to either pornography or a girl he just met on the internet. Although he has feelings for her, she easily intimidates him: “But I see her online, and I don’t think that I should be calling / All the time, I just wanted a happy ending / And I’m pretending I don’t care ‘bout her stare / While she’s giving me a tough time.”  The song could be interpreted in different ways, especially when its bold and merry tempo enhances the risqué lyrics. In an interview with Annie Mac from BBC Radio 1’s “Future Sounds,” Healy said “It’s about the idea of chasing connection, it’s about getting naked on FaceTime … It’s the lighter version of some of the observations of what we’re up to on the internet.” center_img Although the song was formally released April 23, the band originally debuted the track during a February concert; from that moment, fans have eagerly anticipated the new single.  The single begins with a soft instrumental, jumping into an upbeat track that is energetic, fun and easy to dance to. Healy goes on to describe his relationship with a mystery girl he met online. The lyrics are provocative and lustful, especially at the chorus when Healy sings: “She said, Maybe I would like you better if you took off your clothes / I wanna see and stop thinking / If you’re too shy then let me — too shy then let me know.”  The 1975’s fourth studio album “Notes On a Conditional Form” is set to release May 22. The band has previously tackled themes of love in the digital age since their third album “A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships.” Their forthcoming album is a continuation of these themes, and “If You’re Too Shy” plays as a perfect introspective social commentary.  The sound of “If You’re Too Shy” is reminiscent of the band’s alternative music that appeared in its debut self-titled album. With its ’80s-inspired synth pop sound and double entendres, “If You’re Too Shy” is similar to the band’s other songs “Chocolate” and “Girls.” It’ll most likely become a 1975 classic, combining the band’s take on online love with a pop-rock style and giving us a reason to smile and dance amid quarantine. last_img read more

USC swimming and diving posts strong showing at Pac-10s

first_imgThe No. 6 USC women’s swimming and diving team took third place overall in the Pac-10 championships, finishing behind Stanford and California.Strong performance · Over the weekend, junior Katinka Hosszu was named Pac-10 Swimmer of the Meet after posting first-place finishes in the 200 individual medley, 400 individual medley and 200-yard butterfly. – Tim Tran | Daily Trojan The Trojans took home eight titles from the competition, one off the school record for Pac-10 wins (nine wins in 2003).“I am proud of the fact that we came away with eight individual championships, by far the most in nearly a decade,” said USC coach Dave Salo. “Those eight wins can turn into eight wins at the NCAA championships which attests to the perennial strength of the Pac-10 conference.”USC started off on a positive note, ending the first day of the Pac-10s tied for second place with Stanford.As the meet progressed, No. 4 Cal led the rankings during the opening competition, but by Saturday, No. 1 Stanford had managed to come back and take its second-straight Pac-10 title.Though USC did not take home the Pac-10 title, it swept the individual titles.Junior Katinka Hosszu was named Swimmer of the Meet, while junior Victoria Ishimatsu was named Diver of the Meet. Junior Harrison Jones, who participated in the men’s diving Pac-10 championships that also took place last week, was named men’s Diver of the Meet.“I’m really happy with my times and placements,” Hosszu said. “I hope I can be faster at NCAAs and I’m excited to see how much faster I can go.”Hosszu won three titles, the 200-meter and 400-meter individual medleys and the 200-yard butterfly, while sophomore Haley Anderson won two in the 500- and 1560-yard free.Senior Lyndsay DePaul also finished strong for the team on Saturday, taking second place behind Hosszu in the 200-yard butterfly.Although the Women of Troy stressed that the Pac-10s are not as important to the team as the NCAA competition coming up in two weeks, their third place finish was significant. To some, it is an indicator of what they can do better at NCAAs.“It’s good we have this meet so we know what we need to improve in two weeks,” Hosszu said. “For example, I know I was slow on a couple of turns, so I can work on that. Hopefully we can improve and do much better at NCAAs.”The NCAA competition will be March 17-19 in Austin, Texas. The team has high hopes for the last competition of its season.“We had a strong showing at the Pac-10 conference championships and finished third to two very strong teams,” Salo said. “We are looking to move into the top 5 at NCAAs in a few weeks.”last_img read more

No. 3 seed Boeheim’s Army advances to Elite Eight with late run, downs No. 7 seed Team Fancy 65-61

first_img Published on July 20, 2017 at 9:18 pm Contact Matthew: mguti100@syr.edu | @MatthewGut21 NEW YORK — As Brandon Triche’s corner 3-pointer soared in the air, Trevor Cooney stood up. He clenched a towel as Boeheim’s Army’s chances to take a lead hung in the air. Fans clad in orange and blue stood up from behind him, some cracking smiles, others nervously holding their breaths. The gym, once vibrant, fell into an anxious hush.Triche drilled the shot, giving the Syracuse alumni a 61-59 lead. And Triche, who landed on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 2012 and led Syracuse to the Elite Eight in 2013, sunk four free throws in the final seconds to seal the game. For No. 3 seed Boeheim’s Army, his 3-point shot punched a ticket to the Elite Eight. A “Let’s go Orange” chant broke up from the Syracuse-dominant stands. For No. 7 seed Team Fancy, which upset the No. 2 seed in the tournament to earn a date with Boeheim’s Army, Triche’s shot was the dagger in a run that seemed like it would go on when they took a lead in the final minutes.“I feel like I was due for one,” Triche said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAlly Moreo | Photo EditorBehind Triche’s shot, Boeheim’s Army avenged its Super 16 loss a year ago with a 65-61 victory. For the second time in three years, the Syracuse alumni will play in the Elite Eight of The Basketball Tournament, a 64-team, single-elimination tournament that awards a $2 million grand prize, played at Long Island University-Brooklyn. Boeheim’s Army now boasts an 8-2 record over three summers and will look for win No. 9 Sunday on the same court for a shot at the Final Four.“We have shooters all over the floor,” Devendorf said. “Pick your poison.”It was a seesaw game in every sense, in front of an audience that included the CEO of Starbucks and Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones. And, via the ESPN2 national broadcast, likely SU head coach Jim Boeheim.Each team started slow in the opening minutes that included errant passes, missed layups and stagnant offense. Triche broke away twice but failed to convert at the rim. Eric Devendorf needed only three hard dribbles to make it from 3-point range to underneath the hoop, but he too couldn’t get the bucket to go in off the glass. After John Gillon tossed a cross-court pass into the hands of Team Fancy, head coach Ryan Blackwell rolled his eyes and replaced him with Triche. Gillon finished with zero points in seven minutes.But deep into the first half, James Southerland came sweeping through the paint. Uncovered, he caught took a pass chest-high in stride and threw the ball down with his right hand. It was met with applause by the several hundred fans donning orange and blue, and the play spurted a 7-3 Boeheim’s Army run.Ally Moreo | Photo EditorA Devendorf drive to the rim stretched the SU lead to five with nine minutes to go. Once again shortly after, he did almost the same, bumping Boeheim’s Army’s lead to seven, its largest of the game. The next time down, he dropped off a pass to CJ Fair for an easy lay-in.And just when Southerland, fresh off a couple of weeks in the NBA Summer League with the Utah Jazz, looked slightly out of place with an awkward pivot, he dropped in a nifty teardrop to make it a five point game. “We have to be right there in striking distance at the end of the game,” said Devendorf, who finished with a team-high 19 points.Boeheim’s Army did that, as now finds itself three victories away from the grand prize.
