Greece rejects debt doubts

first_img Tags: NULL Share Greece rejects debt doubts whatsapp GREECE’S finance minister has strongly rejected the idea the country will be forced to restructure its debts, saying that a default would break the eurozone.On a two-day visit to London, Paris and Frankfurt to convince investors Greece is beginning to recover from its economic crisis, George Papaconstantinou told the Financial Times a Greek default would spark selling in other so-called peripheral bond markets such as Portugal and Ireland.The minister’s message to investors was backed up by officials from the International Monetary Fund, European Union and the European Central Bank. One senior IMF official said “no one would benefit from a Greek default”.

There are 11.4m mortgages in the UK, according to the Council of Mortgage Lenders.The figures remain considerably worse than prior to the recession. Approximately four times as many households face negative equity as in 2007.And more people could fall into negative equity if house prices drop further. Close to one in five mortgage holders have debts exceeding 75 per cent of the value of their properties, “not much changed” from last year, the report says.House prices will fall by 2.7 per cent in the coming financial year, the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) forecast last month. Previously it had expected a rise of 2.3 per cent.This month asking prices fell by three per cent, Rightmove revealed today. And asking prices could fall by five per cent next year, the property website estimates.The number of first time buyers “remains relatively low,” the Bank said. Despite low house prices and low mortgage rates, modest wage growth and tight credit conditions continue to deter buyers from the market.High deposit requirements are resulting in prospective first time buyers saving for the future, even thought interest rates remain low. “Around a quarter of renters who reported they were increasing saving, were doing so to finance a deposit,” the report said.However, the situation is positive in comparison to the US housing market, where roughly 11m households face negative equity. whatsapplast_img read more

YouView was set to launch in the second quarter of this year but industry sources believe delays may push the date back to late 2011 or early 2012.The report says Virgin Media will be the big winner over the next few years as its broadband is generally quicker and more reliable – an increasingly important consideration for consumers.Evolution is generally positive for the sector as a whole, issuing “buy” recommendations on Virgin, TalkTalk and BT, and an “add” for Sky.•Cable & Wireless Worldwide (CWW) pulled off a remarkable coup yesterday when it announced it hadwon a multi-million pound communications contract for engineering firm Babcock from BT.CWW will now be the sole provider of telecoms services to the firm, which has major contracts with the Ministry of Defence and Network Rail. The value of the deal has not been announced but sources close to the firm told City A.M. it is worth “significant single-digit millions”.CWW will focus on consolidating Babcock’s 250 sites across the UK, creating encrypted networks for its defence, communications, education, nuclear and rail businesses.

BEST OF THE BROKERS

first_img whatsapp NOKIAStandard & Poor’s Equity Research has moved the mobile maker from “strong buy” to “hold” and downgraded the target price to €8 from €9 as it feels its board has limited strategy options against competitors such as Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android. The broker says Nokia’s operating systems lack exciting apps and it should invest less in developing the platforms.OLD MUTUALGoldman Sachs rates the savings and investment group a “buy” with a 162p target price as it offers new opportunity following a strategic shift back towards insurance and is now undervalued. It offers inexpensive exposure to South Africa, has virtually no European sovereign debt exposure and the impending sale of its banking arm Nedbank should clarify its market position.TESCOEvolution Securities rates Tesco a “sell” as its performance is deteriorating and it is losing strategic position. The broker believes it should initiate a hefty price war when new chief executive Philip Clarke takes over, to reposition itself in the market and end the current store expansion drive in the sector. Tesco is likely to win a price war and should be the first mover, it says.

The London Metropolitan Police arrested five men in connection with a recent spate of attacks by Anonymous, behind last month’s revenge assault on the websites of a number of organisations that had severed links with WikiLeaks.CATERPILLAR FORECASTS RECORD PROFITSCaterpillar, the world’s largest earthmoving equipment maker by revenues, expects to make record profits this year as rising commodity prices fuel a surge in demand for mining equipment in emerging markets and the construction industry in developed economies replaces ageing equipment.GOOGLE ABANDONS PROPERTY SEARCHGoogle has abandoned its brief foray into property searches, marking a victory for specialist portals such as Realtor.com in the US and the UK’s Rightmove. In 2009, the world’s largest search engine by user numbers added a feature to its Maps service that allowed users in the US, Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Japan, to find property for sale or rent. PRADA SET FOR HONG KONG IPOPrada, the Italian fashion group, is set to list on the Hong Kong stock exchange as early as May as it seeks to tap voracious Asian demand for luxury goods. The decision by the group, which is majority owned by designer Miuccia Prada, her family and her chief executive husband Patrizio Bertelli, is a first for the European luxury goods and fashion industry. It underlines Hong Kong’s rising status as a destination for international listings.THE TIMESCOUNCILS LEFT IN THE DARK OVER BIG SOCIETY’S GRAND VISIONMany political commentators were surprised by the vigour with which ministers continued their Big Society narrative after the election — wrongly treating it as a leitmotif that would dissipate as the realities of running complex public services took over. But the Localism Bill and the health and education reforms have put some policy flesh on the bones of the vision for devolved responsibility and the Big Society.REAL PEOPLE MUST MAKE BIG DECISIONSThis week’s report from the Centre for Social Justice brings to the fore a worry that has long been on the minds of those working in and with the public sector: are cuts being made following thorough research or are they, as the report suggests, based on hunches?The Daily TelegraphJOHNSON URGES TAX CUTMayor of London Boris Johnson urges the Chancellor to state “a clear direction of travel” that will include how taxes will be reduced over the course of this parliament. Mr Johnson admits that he is shocked by the high levels of income tax that workers currently have to pay and says that he never thought he would see the day when other large European countries had lower personal tax rates than Britain. TESCO COULD MOVE INTO INDIAIndia is poised to lift foreign direct investment (FDI) restrictions for foreign supermarket giants such as Tesco and Walmart, its corporate affairs minister has indicated. Jyotiraditya Scindia said he was concerned about a 35per cent decline in foreign direct investment in 2010 and that he believed lifting restrictions could reverse the fall.THE WALL STREET JOURNALFINLAND REJECTS UPPING STABILITY FUNDFinland won’t accept any increase in the overall size of the European Financial Stabilization Facility, Prime Minister Mari Kiviniemi said Thursday. Kiviniemi said: “I’m not ready to open a discussion on eurobonds or increasing the size of the EFSF.” The “eurobonds” rejected by the prime minister refer to bonds that would be issued jointly by the members of the euro zone, an idea that has been rejected by the European Central Bank as well as the Eurozone’s richer countries.CITIGROUP SEEKS BUYER FOR EMICitigroup, which is expected to seize control of EMI Group from financier Guy Hands in coming months, has already made contact with parties that could quickly snap up the historic music company — and Hands himself is even among them. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search Ads KCS-content whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more
