(Reuters) – European shares hit a five-week high on Monday as optimism about a stable economic recovery in China and hopes of more U.S. fiscal stimulus helped offset concerns around surging COVID-19 cases across the continent.
The pan-European STOXX 600 <.STOXX> marked a third straight day of gains to end 0.7% higher, led by utilities <.SX6P>, technology <.SX8P> and autos <.SXAP> stocks.
The Trump administration on Sunday called on the U.S. Congress to pass a stripped-down coronavirus relief bill after talks stalled on a more comprehensive stimulus deal.
“Investors have not lost faith that further stimulus measures will follow and that an effective COVID-19 vaccine will soon be placed on the market,” said Milan Cutkovic, market analyst at Axi.
But a jump in domestic coronavirus cases has raised the spectre of fresh lockdowns and cast a shadow over a nascent economic rebound.
With Italy preparing for nationwide curbs, the European
The public benefit corporation that runs Nassau University Medical Center could run a deficit of up to $197 million next year without significant outside subsidies, and must change the way it does business in order to survive, a consultant for the hospital’s financial control board has found.
NuHealth, which runs Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow, faces large annual deficits for the foreseeable future, and “cannot continue operating as it currently does and expect to grow its way out of its financial problems,” consultant Alvarez & Marsal, of Manhattan, said in a 38-page report.
The report, commissioned by the Nassau Interim Finance Authority, a state board that controls NuHealth’s finances, said NuHealth faces an operating loss of $112 million to $197 million in 2021.
“Sometimes you find a place that has been so undermanaged, that when you do a productivity report, you are able to close the gap. In
This week: A sugar-hit budget lacking in big ideas, James Packer faces the music (sort of), and Jacinda-mania part II.
A billion dollars here, a billion dollars there, pretty soon you’re talking real money.
Australians were reminded of this political maxim when Treasurer Josh Frydenberg on Tuesday unveiled a record A$213.7 billion ($153 billion) budget deficit, equal to 11% of GDP, for the financial year started July 1.
The optics couldn’t be more different from last year, when Frydenberg proudly forecast the first budget surplus in more than a decade. (The Liberal Party even started selling A$35 “Back in Black” coffee mugs to mark the occasion). But that was before Covid-19 upended the world and before a government that won an election on promises of fiscal rectitude once again discovered we’re all Keynesians now.
The centerpiece of the budget was a near-A$100 billion cash splash of personal tax cuts, wage
(Reuters) – U.S. stock index futures were subdued on Tuesday as investors booked profits after a rally that sent the S&P 500 and the Dow to their highest levels in more than two weeks, while awaiting signs Washington was close to agreeing on more fiscal stimulus.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin spoke by phone on Monday about fresh relief measures and were preparing to talk again on Tuesday.
Comments from officials that a deal was still possible had lifted Wall Street’s main indexes in the previous session, helping them recoup losses from last week that were sparked by news that President Donald Trump had contracted COVID-19.
Trump returned to the White House on Monday from the Walter Reed Medical Center military hospital, but faced fresh backlash for removing his mask upon his return and urging Americans not to fear the disease that has
Cobra Kai undoubtedly became the success that no one expected in 2020. The series that continues the Karate Kid saga premiered two years ago on YouTube Red, but it was thanks to its arrival on Netflix that the show starring Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) and Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) has become the most followed of the moment.
The show has numbers to prove it. According to the latest audience report from consulting firm Nielsen , Cobra Kai surpassed the streaming audience for even highly anticipated movies like Mulan .
Personally, I adore this new installment of the Karate Kid saga so I decided to ask the Cobra Kai Latin America group what were their favorite phrases from the series. Beyond the Cobra Kai dojo “Strike first, strike hard, no mercy” mantra (which I personally believe will be modified in the coming seasons) we find several business
