Energy stocks help push up Toronto index US markets mixed dollar slips

first_imgTORONTO – Energy stocks helped Canada’s main stock index close higher Thursday while U.S. markets were mixed and the loonie traded lower.The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index closed up 8.85 points at 16,192.78, including a 2.06 per cent climb in the S&P/TSX capped energy index.Oil and gas gains came as the July crude contract closed up US$1.22 or 1.88 per cent at US$65.95 as the price of the commodity continues to swing on supply speculation, especially out of Venezuela and Iran.The uptick in crude prices didn’t put the Canadian dollar in positive territory though, as the traditional correlation between the two has split, said Kash Pashootan, chief investment officer at First Avenue Investment Counsel Inc.“On days like today you’re seeing that correlation broken, you’re seeing oil prices higher and the Canadian dollar cheaper.”The Canadian dollar was down 0.35 of a US cent to average 77.09 cents US Wednesday as the US dollar strengthens on its stronger economy, said Pashootan.“You’re seeing the market start to identify the divergence between the overall health of the U.S. economy compared to the overall health of the Canadian economy.”The Bank of Canada said in a report Thursday that the housing market and high levels of consumer debt are still the top vulnerabilities for the financial system, but that both have shown signs of easing.Pashootan said he’s not convinced that the picture is improving and that the Canadian economy has yet to feel the full effects of recent interest rate hikes.“I disagree with Bank of Canada, I don’t think those key risks are easing. I think it’s premature to be cheering that those risks are subsiding. The fact of the matter is when you raise interest rates, it takes several quarters for the implications of higher rates to play themselves out for the average household.”He said Canada has yet to go through a credit reset cycle like the U.S., making the economy more vulnerable.“Not only have we not gone through a credit reset cycle, but we have continually grown household debt as a percentage of income,” said Pashootan.In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average closed up 95.02 points at 25,241.41. The S&P 500 index ended down 1.98 points at 2,770.37 and the Nasdaq composite index was down 54.17 points at 7,635.07.The July copper contract closed up a penny at US$3.27 a pound after climbing five cents earlier in another day of gains for the metal as labour worries at the world’s largest copper mine in Chile raise supply concerns.The S&P/TSX base metal index had seen strong gains in recent days on the price climb, but it was down Thursday as investors took profits, said Pashootan.The July natural gas contract ended up three cents at US$2.93 per mmBTU and the August gold contract was up US$1.60 cents at US$1,303 an ounce.Cheese and dairy producer Saputo Inc. closed down $1.90 or 4.3 per cent at $42.25 after releasing quarterly results that were below analyst expectations.Questerre Energy Corp. saw it’s share price plunge 31 cents or 31.31 per cent to 68 cents after Quebec released draft oil and gas regulations that the company says will effectively ban fracking and any meaningful exploitation of natural gas in the province.last_img read more

FAA is investigating engine incident on United flight

WASHINGTON — The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating what caused part of an engine on a United Airlines plane to come loose after takeoff.The Boeing 737 was scheduled to fly from Denver to Orlando, Florida, on Sunday, but returned and landed safely in Denver after the incident.An FAA spokesman said Monday that the plane had an issue with an engine panel.Video recorded by passengers showed the engine covering flapping loosely while the plane was in flight.Engines coming apart are dangerous because pieces can break off and become debris that strikes the plane.United tweeted that the plane returned to the terminal and customers were rebooked on different flights.The Associated Press read more

Fewer than 1 in 100 theft offences are being solved by police

Tens of thousands of theft offences left without chargesMore than 530,000 other theft offences were recorded but there were only 13,600 which resulted in an offender being charged, a rate of 2.5 per cent.In five of the biggest forces in Britain covering 17m people – Greater Manchester, the Metropolitan Police, West Yorkshire, Surrey and West Midlands – just one in 50 (two per cent) or fewer saw anyone charged. Out of almost 200,000 thefts, only 3,460 were charged in the five areas. “I am concerned about the overall trend which shows a decline in charging rates. We have to remember these are not just numbers. Each crime will have a victim, someone whose life has been has been affected, sometimes shattered, as a result,” she said.“It raises questions about public confidence in the police and the wider criminal justice system. If the only contact you have with the police is a burglary and you see no further action being taken, how can you feel that the justice system is there to protect you and your family.”Marian Fitzgerald, professor of criminology, warned it could lead to vigilantism if crimes where there were witnesses or CCTV evidence were not  investigated.“It has major implications for the public’s willingness to report such offences,” she said. “What you will get then is the public deciding to sort it out for themselves.” “Open avenue” to keep offendingBaroness Newlove, the government’s victims’ commissioner, said she was “shocked” by the figures which would undermine victims’ confidence to report thefts and give criminals an “open avenue” to keep offending. Fewer than one in 100 thefts in some police force areas are being solved, an analysis shows, prompting criticism of police priorities.While the number of thefts from people have doubled to 100,000 fuelled by the boom in mobile phones, the proportion where the offender was caught and charged have halved since 2014/15.In Greater Manchester, City of London, Avon and Somerset and North Yorkshire, the proportion where anyone was charged dropped to 0.6 per cent or under, according to the analysis by The Daily Telegraph of home office data.The Metropolitan Police, Britain’s biggest force, charged an offender in just 1.1 per cent of the thefts. Nationally it averaged 1.5 per cent, down from 3.2 per cent four years ago.Victims’ campaigners criticised police for downgrading investigations into theft and screening out crimes that affected tens of thousands of people. The Daily Telegraph revealed yesterday some police forces are developing algorithms to weed out hard-to-solve crimes.Search for your police force below to find out how their charge rates for key crimes compares. Thefts from vehicles are among the most common with 280,000 such crimes and have been steadily increasing in the past three years but just 1.7 per cent, or 4,700, resulted in a charge.The decline comes as police forces including the Met have introduced policies where they screen out investigations if a theft or criminal damage is worth less than £50 and where the suspect is not known.One in 20 burglaries results in chargesFewer than one in 20 burglaries (4.6 per cent) resulted in an offender being caught and charged, down from 9.3 per cent in 2014/15.In police forces with the lowest rates, there was less than a one in 30 chance of a burglar being charged. In Wiltshire and Northamptonshire  it was 2.8 per cent followed by Bedfordshire (three per cent), Hertfordshire (3.1 per cent), and Greater Manchester (3.3 per cent).The chances of an offender being charged with robbery has fallen below 10 per cent, almost halving in four years.The City of London recorded the lowest rate at 5.4 per cent followed by the Metropolitan Police at 6.2 per cent, which recorded more than 32,000 robberies but only 2,035 charges. Greater Manchester was third lowest with 8.1 per cent. Rory Geoghegan, head of criminal justice at the Centre for Social Justice, said: “Every failed detection is a missed opportunity to intervene, to cut crime, and protect vulnerable communities.“Driven in part by the continued erosion of proactive community policing, the fall in detection rates will be a boon for the most prolific and organised offenders – enabling them to continue and even escalate their offending with impunity.” Declining charge rates for violence with injuryFor violent crime where a victim was injured, the charging rate fell from more than one in four in 2014/15 (26.1 per cent) to one in seven (14.7 per cent).There was a less than one in 10 chance of an offender being charged in Wiltshire (9.8 per cent), the force with the lowest rate, followed by Devon and Cornwall (10.7 per cent), Greater Manchester (10.9 per cent), Hertfordshire (11.3 per cent) and Kent (11.7 per cent).While criminal damage offences have risen by 40 per cent to more than 560,000, the proportion resulting in charges has fallen from 8.9 per cent to 5.9 per cent in four years. By contrast, possession of a weapon including knives had one of the highest charge rates at 41 per cent. Police forces have been “forced to prioritise”Harry Fletcher, director of the Victims Rights’ Campaign, said: “The harm that people felt from burglaries and thefts was taken seriously by the police 10 years ago but because resources are so restricted, they have been forced to prioritise.“It is quite clear that what are deemed minor crimes no longer get an adequate response. This is severely letting victims down and undermining public confidence in the criminal justice system.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Treehouses are treemendouse getaways

first_imgSTEVENSON — Douglas firs are the hallmark of Skamania Lodge’s sprawling 175-acre resort in the Columbia River Gorge. When the wind kicks up, the imposing trees bow and flex with the breeze.So, it may be no surprise that the lodge’s new treehouses costing $300,000 each sit on metal stilts 15 to 20 feet off the ground — not on the trees themselves.“We really tried to be true to our original vision of this project, which was built in the branches of trees. As we got into the project, we learned that a Douglas fir can grow up to 450 feet tall. It grows for 150 years,” said Todd Gillespie, the lodge’s sales and marketing director. “We started thinking if it grows, we have a $300,000 asset attached to it. That’s a challenge. What happens if the tree gets sick and we have a $300,000 asset attached to it?”Does that mean these aren’t true treehouses? If you’ve got at least $349 to spend, you can stay the night and decide for yourself.They are nestled among the trees next to the golf course.“As far as West Coast destinations, Skamania Lodge’s treehouses differ in that we offer a full-service, upscale resort,” Gillespie said. “When you come here, you’ve got three restaurants to choose from, you’ve got a spa, you’ve got a golf course. You can get married here.”last_img read more

Everyone Raving About Drake Playing Fortnite With Ninja Makes Me Feel Old

first_img Late last night, the gaming world was brought together when superstar rapper Drake played Fortnite with streamer Ninja on Twitch. Well, everyone except me. I haven’t actively listened to pop music for about 20 years, so I only know about Drake because of the memes on Twitter. And despite being a qualified gaming journalist, I legit had no idea who this Ninja guy was. I stream on Twitch, but I still do not fully understand the concept of watching someone play games. As I often do when things like this happen, I was left feeling like an old man.So how did this all go down? Apparently, this had been in the works for months (according to the BBC). Drake is a fan of Fortnite and often plays the game to relax after recording sessions. The rapper is also a fan of Ninja, who regularly streams Fortnite on Twitch. Drake plays Fortnite on PS4 and Ninja plays on PC. Thanks to the newly introduced crossplay feature, the two were able to play with one another. As it turns out, this unique collaboration resulted in one of Twitch’s biggest streams yet.According to Polygon, the stream reached 635,000 concurrent views. That’s short of the all-time record held by ELEAGUE Major: Boston 2018 with over 1.1 million concurrent viewers. Still, 635k is nothing to sneeze at. Thanks to the stream, Ninja gained 90,000 new followers on Twitch. The streamer also ended up making $250,000 in revenue off the stream. Even Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster joined the stream.I didn’t watch the stream myself since it was late at night, but I did toss out these tweets before bed. As always, my feelings are best summed up by quoting The Simpsons.So Drake (a rapper I don’t know a single song from) and some Twitch streamer I don’t know about is the biggest thing going on tonight on Twitter? I don’t get it. pic.twitter.com/16YpNIhGr2— Tony Polanco (@Romudeth) March 15, 2018 Stay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Drake is that dude who does the funny dancing right? The only Drake I recognize is Nathan Drake, thank you very much!— Tony Polanco (@Romudeth) March 15, 2018No one batted an eye when I admitted to not knowing who Ninja was. However, nearly everyone was shocked I didn’t know about Drake. I mean… I know who Drake is. He’s the rapper who dances funny and has countless memes associated with him. It’s just that if you were to play me a song from him, I’d have no idea it was him. I am perfectly comfortable being the old man of the internet.Despite my confusion over the whole thing, I’m happy that this event brought joy to people. There’s a lot of (stupid) divisions in gaming, so it’s nice when something brings the community together. Will we see something like this happen again? Given the numbers this stream pulled in, you can bet your ass it will. When it does, I’ll be ready with this all-too-appropriate video.

Artificial Intelligence | July 03, 2019 VIDEO: Artificial Intelligence May Assist in Pediatric Imaging Sudhen Desai, M.D., FSIR, interventional radiologist at Texas Children’s Hospital, editor of IR Quarterly for the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) and on the Board of Directors for the Society of Physician Entrepreneurs, explained how artificial intelligence (AI) can assist in pediatric imaging and the pitfalls of training AI systems. He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

Malaysian court lets off Aussies who partied in swimsuits

first_imgTags: Malaysia Source: The Associated Press Malaysian court lets off Aussies who partied in swimsuits Thursday, October 6, 2016 KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Nine Australians charged after stripping down to skimpy swimsuits at the Malaysian Formula One Grand Prix walked free Thursday without a conviction after pleading guilty to causing a public nuisance and apologizing.The nine were detained Sunday after they partied in Budgy Smuggler-brand swimsuits decorated with the Malaysian flag and drank beer from shoes in full view of thousands of spectators at the Sepang track after Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo won the race.Budgy smuggler is Australian slang for a tight swimsuit worn by men, and the drinking out of a shoe was done to honour Ricciardo, who drinks out of his shoes to celebrate winning.Defence lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah said the court accepted his argument that it was a trivial offence and that the nine, dressed in suits in the court, were ignorant of the local culture and remorseful. He said one of them read out an apology to the court, admitting to an “error of judgment.”More news:  Beep, beep! Transat hits the streets with Cubamania truckShafee said their actions were not illegal in most countries, including Australia.“We are sensitive about it but they didn’t know. They sincerely thought it was a respect and a celebration with Malaysians,” Shafee said.“The court accepted my mitigation that this was a trivial offence and under extenuating circumstances because they misunderstood the local culture. They have been admonished by the court and released without conviction,” he added.He said one of the men fainted in court briefly due to dehydration.The nine, mostly Sydney University graduates in their 20s, left the court without speaking to reporters. The men included Jack Walker, an adviser to Australian Defence Industry Minister Chris Pyne.His father John Walker said they were very thankful.“There’s no charge, there’s no fine and the boys apologized. They recognized what they did was unacceptable but they have been completely cleared and are free to travel and resume their lives,” he said.More news:  Windstar celebrates record-breaking bookings in JulyRicciardo, the driver whose success inspired the Australians’ beer-fueled revelry, described the incident as “pretty harmless.”“I respect the laws of Malaysia, but beyond that I don’t think they deserve any further punishment,” Ricciardo told Sydney’s The Daily Telegraph newspaper.“In Australia, it’s a bit different, but I’m very sure they didn’t intend to offend anyone,” he said.Budgy Smuggler, the Sydney-based, family-owned swimsuit manufacturer, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The company features on its website and social media photographs of customers wearing its swimwear in public locations, including in front of Westminster Palace in London and the Eiffel Tower in Paris.The Australian media has dubbed the men the Budgie Nine, using a spelling variation of the abbreviated name of the budgerigar, a small Australian parrot. The name plays on nine Australians arrested in Indonesia for heroin trafficking in 2005 who became known as the Bali Nine. << Previous PostNext Post >> Sharelast_img read more

Prosecutors accused Patton of killing Cynthia Iannarelli, of Cecil, Pennsylvania, because he was traumatized over his parents’ divorce. Police said Patton left the wrapped body on a sand dune near the Osian resort and was arrested at the airport as he tried to fly home.Patton, who was 16 when he was arrested, has said he is innocent and has accused police of forcing him to confess.The teenager’s father, Richard Patton, said the family was overjoyed at his acquittal.“While this does not in any way lessen the tragic death of Dr. Iannarelli, both the Patton and Iannarelli families are relieved and joyful with Joncarlo’s acquittal, an outcome we have believed in and expected from the very beginning,” Richard Patton said in a written statement.The teenager’s lawyer, Rahul Mehra, said Patton had been turned over to U.S. Embassy officials for repatriation.U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner said U.S. officials “are aware of the case and are providing appropriate consular assistance.” He declined to comment further citing privacy concerns.

APNewsBreak US Navy reviews rules on Japan bases

first_img Get a lawn your neighbor will be jealous of Anger on Okinawa was already rising because of the military’s decision to deploy the Marines’ MV-22 Osprey hybrid aircraft to a base there last month, despite local opposition over safety concerns after two recent crashes elsewhere. Tens of thousands of protesters held the largest rally in years to oppose the deployment.But crime has long been the most sensitive trigger to anti-U.S. military emotions on Okinawa.The rape of a 12-year-old schoolgirl by two Marines and a sailor in 1995 sparked a huge outcry there. It led to a broad review of military regulations and an agreement to reduce the military footprint on Okinawa, including a plan to move about 9,000 Marines off Okinawa to the U.S. territory of Guam or other Pacific locations. The plan has not yet been implemented.Over the past decade, base-related crime on Okinawa has generally been decreasing.According to statistics released by the Okinawan government, the number of felonious crimes _ murders, rapes, arsons or violent robbery _ committed by service members or their dependents on Okinawa dropped from 13 in 2008 to four last year, and the overall number of crimes has dropped by about 50 percent since 2003 and remained fairly stable. “The decision to cancel the liberty card program is in recognition that the vast majority of our sailors are overwhelmingly outstanding,” the commanders said in the Oct. 12 memo, adding that lower-level leaders would be able to keep the small number of potential troublemakers in line.The alleged rape was reported Oct. 16. In a statement Tuesday to The Associated Press, Cloyd stood by the assessment he made in the memo.“The vast majority of our sailors have demonstrated overwhelmingly outstanding behavior while serving and living in Japan,” he said in the statement, his first public comment since the incident. “We continually focus on training that reinforces the exceptionally high standards of professional and personal conduct of all service members here in Japan and throughout the world.”Following last week’s rape allegation, Lt. Gen. Salvatore Angelella, the commander of U.S. forces in Japan, announced that all U.S. military personnel in the country are subject to a curfew from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. and will have to take “core values training.”Cloyd said the Navy is also reviewing its liberty policies. But Cmdr. Kenneth Marshall, a spokesman for the Commander U.S. Naval Forces, Japan, told The AP the loosening of the liberty card policy would not have affected the suspects because their squadron was still enforcing it _ an option that the top commanders left open to the lower-level leadership. The Navy says the policy change played no role in the alleged attack on a woman outside her apartment building. But the U.S. ambassador immediately apologized, and the head of all 52,000 U.S. troops in Japan announced a new curfew for them as the case sparked intense anger on Okinawa and a brought a sharp rebuke from the Japanese government.The uproar has deepened a dilemma nagging the U.S. military for years: It wants to improve relations on Okinawa, home to most of its Japan-based force and one of America’s most important Pacific military outposts, but it also wants to be fair to its sailors. Many Okinawans believe the troops cannot be trusted to behave themselves off-base despite falling crime rates, and many sailors believe they are being unfairly judged because of a few notorious cases.Less than a week before the rape was reported, 7th Fleet commander Vice Adm. Scott Swift and Rear Adm. Dan Cloyd, commander of U.S. Naval Forces, Japan, issued a memorandum ending the nearly decade-old “liberty card” program, which regulated off-hours activities by sailors in Japan.They said the program treated sailors of lower rank “as if they are expected to engage in misconduct,” when in fact very few sailors “have difficulty adhering to minimum standards of conduct.” Top Stories Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Associated PressTOKYO (AP) – Weary of rules limiting the freedom of their “overwhelmingly outstanding” sailors, the top commanders of the U.S. Navy in Japan eased after-hours restrictions this month. Just four days later, two sailors were accused of rape on Okinawa, a small island that has long had a tense relationship with the large American force stationed there.Now, in his first comments since the incident, one of the commanders has told The Associated Press the policy change is under review. But he also stands by his assessment that the U.S. troops under his watch display “exceptionally high standards of professional and personal conduct.” “This is really about the investigation of a violent crime: If these reports are substantiated, these actions are a complete disregard of the personal moral and ethical standards that the U.S. expects of service members,” he said.Okinawan police allege Seaman Christopher Browning of Athens, Texas, and Petty Officer 3rd Class Skyler Dozierwalker of Muskogee, Okla., raped and robbed a local woman in her 20s last week outside her apartment building. The sailors, both 23, were temporarily deployed to Japan with their unit, the VR-59 reserve air detachment based at Joint Naval Air Station, Fort Worth, Texas.According to police, the two arrived in Okinawa two days earlier on a brief stopover and were staying in an off-base hotel. They were reportedly drinking before the alleged rape took place, between 3 and 4 a.m. They are now in Japanese custody awaiting trial.The U.S. military has an outsized presence in Okinawa, which was a major battlefield during World War II and a U.S.-administered territory until 1972. The prefecture (state) of 1.4 million hosts about 28,000 U.S. troops _ mostly Marines and Air Force personnel, with smaller contingents of sailors and soldiers. U.S. bases occupy nearly 20 percent of Okinawa’s main island.center_img Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Takuya Kobashigawa, of the Okinawa prefecture’s base relations department, said U.S. troops or their dependents account for about 1 percent of all crime on Okinawa. He said there had been two sexual assaults on Okinawa by U.S. personnel over the past three years and no rapes since 2008, when there were four cases.The downtick in overall crime, however, has done little to change Okinawan perceptions.“The preventative measures currently taken by the U.S. military and its efforts to educate its personnel can only be called dysfunctional, and we are outraged,” Okinawa’s prefectural assembly said in a resolution adopted Monday. “The repeat of this kind of incident tries the patience of the Okinawan people beyond their limits, and has generated calls for all U.S. bases to be removed from our prefecture.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

The Pros and Cons of San Franciscos Tech Boom

first_img in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News, Technology A booming tech sector and overall job and income growth have helped fuel a real estate boom in San Francisco, according to a recent special commentary from the Wells Fargo Economics Group. The group found that the city’s perennially tight housing market has gotten even tighter, pushing rents and home prices up.One emerging trend is the increased numbers of younger tech workers living and working around downtown San Francisco. The group comments that major tech companies—Twitter, Dropbox, Square, Trulia, and Salesforce.com—are setting up shop in downtown San Francisco. A wave of new office construction for the recently relocated tech giants has set off a wave of accompanying apartment development.The group notes that jobs in the tech sector increased 6.9 percent in the last year alone. By comparison, the financial and legal sectors in San Francisco have declined 0.7 percent in the same time. The area’s unemployment rate has also fallen, down to 6.4 percent, its lowest level in almost six years.Due to the increase in employment in and around the Bay Area, the supply of homes and apartments available for sale or rent remains exceptionally tight. San Francisco has a 2.8-month supply of homes on the market, down from 4.0 months a year ago.Although rising rents and tight inventories have led to a surge in new construction, the new supply is barely able to keep pace with demand. “Multi-family permits, which include both apartments and condominiums, surged 30.4 percent in Santa Clara County during 2013 and have eclipsed previous highs for this market,” the group said.Single-family home building is rebounding, but only “slowly and off exceptionally low levels.”Concerns over the rapid expansion of the tech industry are rising to the surface, as lower income residents are feeling the effects from higher costs of living. The group cautiously noted, “There is little doubt that San Francisco’s near-term economic fortunes ride with prospects for the tech sector, which has directly accounted for 25.3 percent of the jobs created in San Francisco over the past year and more than 32.1 percent of job growth in Silicon Valley.”The group is careful to note that while concerns over the Bay Area’s economy becoming another dot-com crash are possible, “traditional valuation measures are much different than they were during the run-up during the tech bubble in the late 1990s.”The group cited a lower price/earnings ratio of the NASDAQ, as well as the diversification of tech firms as signs of more stable growth for the economy, and thus, housing.

Wells Fargo to Settle With FHA Over Reckless Mortgage Claims

first_img February 3, 2016 724 Views Wells Fargo to Settle With FHA Over ‘Reckless’ Mortgage Claims San Francisco-based bank Wells Fargo announced Wednesday that it has reached a billion-dollar settlement agreement to resolve claims surrounding its Federal Housing Administration lending activities.Since 2012, the lender has been involved with the U.S. government regarding allegations that it was “reckless” in certifying the credit and underwriting quality of FHA loans it originated. The FHA had to pay out insurance claims on default FHA-insured mortgages.According to a Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) 8-K filing on Wednesday, Wells Fargo reached an “agreement in principle” with the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of California, and HUD.The SEC filing noted that Wells Fargo has agreed to pay $1.2 billion to resolve civil claims that the Federal Government had pending against the bank concerning its lending program from 2001 to 2010, including other potential civil claims relating to the lender’s FHA lending activities for other periods.”Although the Company and the Federal Government have reached an agreement in principle to resolve these matters, there can be no assurance that the Company and the Federal Government will agree on the final documentation of the settlement,” the bank said in the SEC filing.Catherine B. Pulley, SVP, Consumer Lending Communication at Wells Fargo told MReport, “Wells Fargo and the United States government have reached an agreement in principle to resolve claims regarding our FHA lending activities, and the company has made an addition to its previously announced reserves to reflect this development. However, we can’t provide any additional details at this time.” The 8-K filing showed that the settlement will knock $134 million, or $0.03 per share, off the company’s 2015 profits, dropping earnings down to $22.9 billion, or $4.12 a share.The net income numbers for Wells Fargo in Q4 and for the full year of 2015 were little changed year-over-year, according to Wells Fargo’s Q4 2015 earnings statement. Wells Fargo’s Q4 2015 net income of $5.7 billion, price of $1.03 per share, and full year net income of $23 billion were all virtually the same as the year before (the full year net income did slightly decline, from $23.1 billion in 2014 down to $23.0 billion in 2015).“Full year and fourth quarter 2015 results demonstrated the benefit of our diversified business model as we again generated strong financial results, maintained our risk discipline and continued to invest across the company for future growth,” Wells Fargo Chairman and CEO John Stumpf said. “We remained focused on the building blocks of long-term shareholder value, with continued growth in loans, deposits and capital. For the fifth consecutive year, we returned more capital to shareholders than the prior year. I am proud of the dedication of our team members and their focus on helping our customers succeed financially.”Click here to view Wells Fargo’s SEC 8-K Filing. in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, Newscenter_img Federal Housing Administration Settlement U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Wells Fargo 2016-02-03 Staff Writer Sharelast_img read more
