DE Shaw slashes its headcount by 10pc as investors lose faith

first_img KCS-content Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Share DE SHAW, one of the world’s largest hedge fund managers, is to cut its global headcount by 10 per cent.The cuts, which equate to roughly 150 jobs, are the largest in the firm’s history and are expected to significantly impact its London and New York offices. DE Shaw’s decision to scale back on staff numbers came as part of a lengthy review by the fund manager’s senior staff after it suffered from a large outflow of investors this year. A statement from the group said: “The DE Shaw group has taken steps to strengthen our business and maximise value for our investors over the long-term.”At the start of the month, DE Shaw managed around $21bn (£13.2bn) across its funds. The New York based firm, however, has suffered from roughly $7bn in redemptions made during the last few months.The cuts comes after one of the worst periods for the hedge fund sector.DE Shaw, which was founded in 1988 by David Shaw, currently employs 1,500 people in the US, UK, Europe, Middle East and Asia.Shaw no longer manages the day-to-day functions of the firm. whatsapp DE Shaw slashes its headcount by 10pc as investors lose faith Tags: NULL More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Tuesday 28 September 2010 11:23 pm last_img read more

The NASDAQ hit a record too, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is within a few percent of one. By contrast, the FTSE 100 is still down close to 20% this year. And at 6,087 points, it’s way below 2018’s all-time high of 7,903.5.If stock markets genuinely reflected the real long-term earnings of their constituent companies, then we might expect new records to be a regular occurrence. But the real world is volatile, and I find this latest US stock market boom scary. It makes me feel twitchy about our dear Footsie too.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…ValuationThe S&P 500 is currently on a P/E multiple of a little over 29. That is, the price of an S&P share on average is 29 times the value of its earnings. The long-term average for that index comes in at around 15 to 16 — an average that’s similar to the FTSE 100.We’re not looking at forecast earnings here, which we’d expect to raise an index’s apparent valuation in the short term. No, this current S&P 500 valuation is a trailing one, based on reported earnings. So it’s mostly unaffected by the pandemic slowdown yet.Earnings forecasts are really not very reliable right now. But America is in its worst economic downturn since the Great Depression (as is much of the world). And as more and more weak earnings reports come in, that P/E is going to rise further and further. Unless, of course, there’s a correction in share prices.DividendsTo look at it another way, we can turn things round and look at dividend yields. That is, the ratio of the average dividend to the average share price. At the moment, the S&P 500 is on a dividend yield of 1.8%. Again, that’s a trailing figure based on reported dividends. And if dividends are cut during the recession, that yield will drop too.But what does the FTSE 100 look like in similar valuation terms? Well, the Footsie is on a trailing P/E of approximately 16 at the moment. So S&P stocks are valued a full 80% higher than FTSE 100 stocks. And looking at dividends, the FTSE 100 yield stands at around 3.5%. That’s down from last year, even after the index’s fall, but it’s still around twice the S&P 500’s yield. What does this all say to me about the prospects for the FTSE 100?FTSE 100 set for a fall?Firstly, I think US stocks are overvalued. They’re high by historic standards, but the Covid-19 havoc makes today’s valuations look like madness to me. I really can see a correction coming. And when the US stock market falls, the rest of the world tends to follow suit. That leads me to rate the probability of a further UK stock market downturn as significant.But it looks like we have a far wider safety margin with the FTSE 100, as P/E multiples are not going crazy and dividend yields are holding up better than we might have feared. What should UK investors do? I think the secret to successful investing has not changed. If we find shares in top FTSE 100 companies on attractive values, especially ones with a defensive edge, we should carry on as usual and buy for the long term.

Saints and Sinners: the weekend’s talking points

first_imgScott WilliamsThe Wales centre was Man of the Match in the Scarlets’ impressive 28-11 win over Sale Sharks in the Champions Cup and one passage of play after 62 minutes encapsulated Williams’ contribution. He stripped the ball from big No 8 Josh Beaumont in contact then, as the Scarlets charged up the pitch, Williams took a pass from Jonathan Davies and almost immediately flipped the cleverest of passes behind his own back, knowing Gareth Davies was there. Davies kicked the ball through and although the move didn’t lead to a try, it showed what skills Williams has in both defence and attack. Leonardo’s masterpiece: Sarto scored two tries for Glasgow Warriors. (Photo: Getty Images)Glasgow WarriorsThe Scottish team walloped Leicester 42-13 in the first Champions Cup match of the weekend and it was Glasgow’s power and physicality in the rucks, mauls and tackles, and their extraordinary speed and precision in attack which was the Tigers’ undoing.Leonardo Sarto was named Man of the Match but this was a fabulous team performance against high-quality opponents. The Warriors mean business in Pool One. Inspirational: Danny Cipriani was in top form for 12-try Wasps. (Photo: Getty Images)Danny CiprianiThe quality of Wasps’ opponents – Zebre – left a lot to be desired but any team which scores 12 tries in a Champions Cup match deserves praise and Wasps beat their previous highest winning score, winning margin and try total in their 82-14 trouncing of the Italians.Cipriani was the inspiration behind the win, with his quick hands, pin-point kicking out of hand and excellent vision creating try after try for the English side. Toulouse away will provide a much sterner test next week, but Wasps won’t be short of confidence. Mathew Tait and Freddie BurnsThe Leicester Tigers defence has been horribly porous this season and they conceded another hatful this week as Glasgow Warriors beat them 42-13. They didn’t help themselves by gifting two interception tries to the Scots when they were chasing the game near the end.First, with 67 minutes gone, Tait spilled the ball under the pressure of a tackle from Nick Grigg when he was trying to offload to Greg Bateman and Mark Bennett picked up the loose ball and raced 80 metres to score the bonus point try.Nine minutes later Burns zipped a pass to the left but the only person there to take it was Man of the Match Leonardo Sarto and he sprinted from his own half to score his second try. Gordon Reid and Aaron ShinglerThese two forwards had a chance to grab a bit of personal glory in their respective teams’ Champions Cup triumphs, but both fluffed the opportunity. Prop Reid was celebrating his 100th appearance for Glasgow Warriors and looked like he was going to crown the special occasion with a try when the ball came down the line to him on the left wing. However, with just a few steps between him and the line he failed to catch the ball and the chance went begging. Reid raised a smile in the immediate aftermath with a superb comedy punching of the corner flag – a definite knock-out blow.Shingler had an opportunity to set up a score for the Scarlets in the second half of their clash with Sale Sharks. He only needed to catch the ball as it came swiftly down the line, and then pass to DTH van der Merwe outside him, but he dropped it. Centre of attention: Craig Ronaldson did superbly for Connacht. (Photo: Inpho)Craig RonaldsonConnacht centre Ronaldson landed a last-quarter conversion to put his side ahead against Toulouse and ultimately seal a 23-21 Champions Cup win for them. Bundee Aki battered his way over the line with 64 minutes on the clock to tie the scores at 21-21. Ronaldson made no mistake with the kick, having taken over the duties from Jack Carty who had missed two conversions and a penalty.Ronaldson also caught the eye in the first half when he came within inches of scoring a spectacular try after a length-of-the-field move. The centre was stopped just short, but Niyi Adeolokun was on hand to finish in the corner. Hair-raising: Mattieu Bastareaud’s hair upstages even Ma’a Nonu’s. (Photo: Getty Images)Mattieu BastareaudThere was plenty of eye-catching rugby to enjoy during Saracens’ 31-23 win in Toulon, but the French centre stole a little bit of the limelight himself with this season’s version of his always slightly crazy hair. The dreadlocks have had a prolonged encounter with a bleach bottle and the effect is pretty startling. As if Bastareaud didn’t already stand out enough… Juan-Martin Fernandez LobbeHis team were losing 28-23 with 76 minutes on the clock, so the Toulon back row could have been forgiven for not being in the best of moods. However, when referee John Lacey told Fernandez Lobbe he was being substituted, the Argentinean exchanged a quick low-five and slap on the back with the official before trotting off. At a critical point in a high-stakes game, it was great to see such a fine bit of friendly sportsmanship. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Heading for trouble: Matt Toomua (12) dumps Finn Russell on the floor. (Photo: Inpho)The SinnersMatt Toomua and Ma’a NonuThis duo were both sin-binned for tip tackles in their respective Champions Cup matches and Toomua was extremely lucky not to see a red card instead.The Australian centre picked up Finn Russell 12 minutes into the Glasgow v Leicester clash and upended him. The only thing which stopped Russell landing on his head was the fact he just managed to get his left elbow down onto the ground first. He landed on his back and so Toomua just spent ten minutes of his Leicester debut in the sin-bin rather than being sent off.Nonu dumped Brad Barritt on his back early in the second half of Toulon’s clash with Saracens, when Toulon were trailing 25-9. It was a bad tackle – but marginally less so than Toomua’s. JP DoyleThe referee made a controversial and important call during Ulster’s defeat in Bordeaux by sin-binning Sean Reidy and awarding a penalty try against him for an early tackle on Baptiste Serin as he attempted to score a try.Yes, Reidy did grasp Serin’s shoulder a moment before he got the ball, but the Bordeaux player still gathered it safely and fell over the line, however Reidy’s momentum took them both into touch before the ball could be grounded.Doyle said to Reidy: “You have made contact early and tackled him. That has stopped him grounding the ball.” However, I don’t think the early tackle did stop Serin touching down, as he still got the ball under full control. LeinsterThe Irish province got their Pool Four campaign off to a winning start and their star performers included Josh van der Flier, Joey Carbery and Man of the Match Isa Nacewa.Nacewa scored a crucial solo try when Leinster were 19-11 up but had a man in the sin bin early in the second half. He grabbed the ball from a ruck, burst through the fringe defence and brushed off two tackles on his way to the line.Carbery, on his European debut, made 92 metres with the ball in hand and beat 11 defenders, while van der Flier was terrific in attack and defence. The sudden and extremely sad death of Munster coach Anthony Foley cast the darkest of shadows over the opening weekend of the European Champions Cup and Challenge Cup. His loss is felt in his home province and across all the nations – but the highs and lows of the weekend’s on-field action still deserve to be acknowledged. Stephen Myler and Callum ClarkNorthampton Saints got their Champions Cup campaign off to a winning start with a 16-14 triumph over Montpellier thanks to Myler landing a penalty with the last kick of the match.Earlier in the game Clark had capitalised on a deft offload from Louis Picamoles after a sharp break and terrific pass from Harry Mallinder to score the Saints’ only try. Clark was double-tackled in the corner by Benjamin Fall and Nic White and they turned him onto his back, but still had the strength to touch down.Montpellier’s Fijian wing Nemani Nadolo also deserves plaudits for a fabulous blind offload out of a tackle on halfway to Joffrey Michel, who sprinted up the left wing and put Frans Steyn over for a try. Ulster were 14-13 down at the time, so the penalty try and yellow card were decisive and, in my opinion, too harsh. I think a fairer call would have been a penalty for the early tackle, and nothing more. Challenge Cup starsJustin Tipuric scored an astonishing solo try in the Ospreys’ 45-0 trouncing of Newcastle Falcons in the Challenge Cup.The Wales flanker leapt and reached to catch a high ball on halfway, broke up the middle, chipped over centre Craig Willis and collected his kick to score.Edinburgh achieved a 59-12 win in Romania against Challenge Cup debutants Timosoara Saracens and both Stuart McInally and Nasi Manu scored hat-tricks.Rhys Priestland kicked 20 of Bath’s points in their 25-22 win at Pau, punishing the home team’s indiscretions and not missing from the tee at all.It would be great to be able to say more about the Challenge Cup games, but as Sky Sports didn’t show a single section of action from that competition in their highlights programme and BT Sport only showed the Tipuric try, it is difficult to pick out the best performances. The SaintsSean Maitland and SaracensOnly a top-class finisher can touch down a try when the combined power of Ma’a Nonu and Leigh Halfpenny is trying to take you into touch, but Saracens’ Maitland did just that in the ninth minute of his side’s historic 31-23 Champions Cup win at Toulon.Maitland reached forward as he was tackled and grounded the ball one-handed in the right-hand corner. The officials took a long look at the replays before deciding he had scored.Saracens’ other wing, Chris Wyles, scored one of the tries of the weekend, finishing off a move which was started by a fabulous break and offload from Mako Vunipola to Man of the Match Owen Farrell. A few moments later lock George Kruis produced a magnificent long pass to Maro Itoje and he put Wyles over on the left.Vunipola wasn’t the only Saracens front-rower showing off some special handling skills at the Stade Mayol. Hooker Jamie George cut a superb line through the Toulon defence then offloaded out of the back of his hand to put Richard Wigglesworth in for Saracens’ second try.The English club resisted a second-half comeback from the modern-day Kings of Europe and became the first club to beat Toulon in the Heineken or European Champions Cup.Hooker on the hoof: Jamie George cuts through the Toulon defence. (Photo: Getty Images) Bordeaux’s comebackTrailing 13-9 with eight minutes of their match v Ulster to go, Bordeaux didn’t look like winning this Champions Cup tie. But they scored three tries before the final whistle to complete a 28-13 win and deny Ulster even a losing bonus point.Sébastien Taofifenua barged over in the corner, an extraordinary run out of defence by Metuisela Talebulamaijaina created a penalty try (more of that later) and Blair Connor ran from behind his own line at the death to score the final try. Frans SteynReferee Nigel Owens had no hesitation in penalising Montpellier centre Frans Steyn for conduct “against the spirit of the game” when the player shouted “miss” as he raced up to attempt to charge down Stephen Myler’s conversion after Callum Clark’s try.This crude attempt to put Myler off only resulted in the Saints’ fly-half being allowed to retake the kick, with no charge-down attempts allowed, and he nailed it.

Bursts of color and noise wreak havoc on nesting birdsFrom Florida AudubonIndependence Day is cause for remembrance and celebration. Unfortunately, people’s celebratory fireworks can actually frighten local birds to death.This year, pounding waves during Tropical Storm Cristobal wiped out sea and shorebird nests up and down the Gulf Coast of Florida. As a result, many Black Skimmers, Least Terns, Snowy Plovers, and Wilson’s Plovers have re-nested – just in time to hatch chicks for the Fourth of July. These young birds are especially vulnerable to both disturbance and predators.Least Tern photo by William Dix“This has already been a tough year for beach-nesting birds,” says Marianne Korosy, Ph.D., Director of Bird Conservation for Audubon Florida. “If we can share the shore and give sea and shorebirds their space, this second round of chicks could be the difference between a successful and failed nesting season.”Audubon Florida urges you to let the birds nest in peace by not deploying personal fireworks on the beach. As entertaining as beachside fireworks shows are to people, the bursts of color and noise wreak havoc on coastal birds—especially for nesting species. After each fireworks explosion, birds panic and fly from their nests, scattering the chicks and exposing them to danger until their parents return. For this reason, it is better to attend a municipal firework show versus deploying store-bought fireworks on the beach.To make matters worse, debris left from the fireworks litter our beaches and near-shore waters and can be easily mistaken for food by sea turtles and other marine animals. Hungry chicks can nibble on plastic refuse, ingesting some of the smallest pieces.Audubon Florida works on multiple fronts to protect nesting birds during the summer, and especially during busy holiday weeks.On this Independence Day, enjoy the local community’s fireworks display and leave personal fireworks at home.More suggestions for protecting birds on the beaches include:Pay attention to signs and barriers and walk safely outside the roped-off sections of beach.Keep your pups on a leash, or take them to dog-friendly designated beaches.Notify beach stewards if you see eggs or nests outside the roped-off area.Dispose of trash in designated receptacles to keep the beaches clean.If you see a beach steward, ask questions! We love talking about Florida’s native bird species.Are you interested in volunteering to protect these birds over the holiday weekend?

However, a tide of well-intentioned health and safety regulations in the 50s and 60s led cities to essentially ban this type of housing across the United States. In an article for the Slate, the director of the Sightline Institute, Alan Durning, suggests that this was one of the most misguided legislations ever implemented in American cities: instead of enforcing higher quality housing for cities’ lower earning peoples, it has instead left them stranded, with fewer and fewer affordable housing options.More after the break…Although regulations have all but removed the single room occupancy hotel (SRO) from the viable housing options in the United States,  Durning describes how perspectives have changed in recent years:  “A few brave developers have been trying to reverse a century of policies on a small scale by building neo-SROs and micro-apartments in cities. They’re responding to the strong demand, especially among millennials, for small, inexpensive units in popular, pedestrian-oriented neighborhoods.” aPodment is one such rooming house in Seattle that offers 150-200 square feet for $18 per night, far below the cost of living in studio apartments nearby. Even NYC Mike Bloomberg is encouraging its resurgence: a recent competition, aDAPT NYC, encouraged micro-units (250-300 square feet) with an emphasis on community spaces within the buildings. Critics who have argued against SRO claim that they are cramped spaces that take advantage of those who cannot afford better housing. However, the resurgence of the micro-unit is also a realistic response to the current economic situation as well as a reflection in the shift in priorities of the millennial generation.
