Mike Dunleavy unveils his budget on Wednesday, December11, 2019, at the Capitol in Juneau, Alaska. (Photo by Rashah McChesney/KTOO)Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s proposal for next year’s budget would spend a similar amount to the budget he signed this year. But there are some significant differences — both reductions and increases.Dunleavy explained why the state made changes in his budget announcement this week.“The budget this year absorbs about $160 million in increases from formula-driven programs,” Dunleavy said of programs like Medicaid and public education, where spending is supposed to be set by formulas written in state law. Dunleavy said the state moved money around to allow that to happen.“We absorbed that internally through efficiencies,” he said. “And we offset those costs by reductions in other areas.”The biggest increases were in the Department of Corrections budget, including $19 million more for prisoners’ health care, driven by an increase in the number of inmates. And there’s $10.9 million more for public education, driven by projected growth in the number of students.Another increase is $8.3 million more in state Medicaid funding for adult preventive dental services.The program originally was slated to be eliminated in the current budget. But the administration has maintained the services, through a temporary extension from July through September; services that will be retroactively funded from October through December; and the continuation of the program on Dec. 31, according to a Department of Health and Social Services spokesperson.The proposal to restore the dental services funding received praise from an advocate for health care providers.“We think it’s a really smart investment of health care dollars,” said Jared Kosin, president and CEO of the Alaska State Hospital and Nursing Home Association. “Adult dental is one of those services that is invested in preventative care. And when you don’t make those investments, you end up driving health care to unnecessarily expensive settings, like hospital emergency rooms.”One of the biggest reductions in the budget was a $25 million cut to the University of Alaska budget. This cut had been announced in August as part of an agreement between Dunleavy and the university’s Board of Regents.The budget projects spending $95 million dollars less next year on fire suppression than the state expects to spend this year.But the state Office of Management and Budget said this change shouldn’t be considered a “real” decrease. That’s because the state traditionally budgets only for spending to respond to a typical wildfire season. And the state then supplements this money with more spending in extreme fire seasons like this year. So whether the spending actually goes down won’t be known for another year.The Legislature’s work on the budget will begin when the session starts on Jan. 21.Share this story:last_img read more

The 2014 Sonoma Valley Reserve Chardonnay received 92 Points and a Gold Medal, while the 2014 Sonoma Valley Reserve Sangiovese scored 96 Points and Best Sangiovese.The 2014 Sonoma Valley Reserve Chardonnay ($25) is characterized by the extremely fruity high notes and great complexity in the aromas. The flavors are well mixed and remind one of fresh grapes with soft fruity tones of citrus, melon, and slight pineapple. One of the most fruit-forward vintages in the last several. Only 730 cases produced.In the nose of the 2014 Sonoma Valley Reserve Sangiovese ($35) there is bright red fruit up front, notes of sour cherry, raspberries, dried floral and cherry tomatoes. On the palate there is more of the sour cherry, thyme cola nut and cedar. Bright acidity with light tannins round out this wine. Only 95 cases produced.La Chertosa is named for the magnificent 14th century Renaissance monastery in the Tuscan valley of Farneta, Italy where the Sebastiani ancestral roots began. Here Sam’s grandfather Samuele Sebastiani learned from the monks to make wine in the “Old World” style. Samuele came to Sonoma in 1893, and found that Sonoma closely resembled faraway Farneta in three ways; it boasted a mild Mediterranean climate, had the same Mediterranean red soils and was blessed with gently sloping hillsides. He founded Sebastiani Winery in 1904, one of the first wineries in California and employed the time-honored techniques taught him by the Carthusian monks in Farneta, to create in Sonoma, the winemaking style Sam continues in crafting the harmonic flavors in La Chertosa wines.La Chertosa wines can be purchased at fine wine locations in California, Nebraska and Colorado or by visiting www.lachertosawines.com. La Chertosa will release its 2014 Sonoma Valley Reserve Chardonnay, a 2014 Sonoma Valley Reserve Sangiovese, and the 2014 Amador County Zinfandel shortly.

Doctors at Abu Dhabi’s Brujeel hospital said that multiple co-morbid complications including heart disease and kidney dysfunction led to her death.Ahmed, who was originally from Egypt, weighed around 500 kg when she was first brought to Mumbai’s Saifee Hospital to undergo weight loss surgery in February. Before her trip to India, Eman’s family used to take care of her. Her sister, Shaimaa Selim and her mother Sana Selim spent 7,000 Egyptian pounds each month to look after the bed-ridden Eman.The 36-year-old was then flown to India in a special aircraft to undergo obesity management. She was treated by a group of 15 doctors led by Dr. Muffazal Lakdwala at Mumbai’s Saifee hospital.

News / Reduced price of Hapag-Lloyd share offer means heavy losses for existing investors

first_img It has been tumultuous week for Hapag-Lloyd as the German carrier pressed to push through its partial stock market listing – otherwise known as an IPO – while existing shareholders have seen the value of their stakes fall.And in the case of CSAV, the company’s largest single shareholder, this could lead to a write-down of almost €1bn, according to one analyst.With open trading of the shares set to commence on Friday, the company has had to twice lower the price range of the new issues it hopes to trade, as well as extending the initial offer period.Originally priced at €23-29 per share, the company downgraded that to €20-22, as a result of “ongoing market volatility”, and announced yesterday that it had raised $300m from placing 13.2 million shares priced at €20 each. By Gavin van Marle 04/11/2015 Another two million “over-allotment shares” are to come from the holdings of TUI, and these are expected to raise another $45m, taking overall capital raised from the exercise to $345m, or €304m. The cash will be used for new investment in vessels and containers, the company said.However, Alphaliner pointed out that weak demand and the low pricing of the offer meant that the line’s existing four major shareholders – CSAV, Kuehne Maritime, TUI and the Hamburg municipality – would likely have to “revalue their investments in Hapag-Lloyd to reflect the lower market value of their shares”.Alphaliner calculated that at the beginning of June, CSAV’s 34% stake had a book value of €1.66bn, which at a €20 per share price would need to be revalued at €713m, meaning some €953m had been wiped off its shareholding value.Likewise, travel company TUI, which has been looking to exit the company for a number of years and had hoped this would be achieved through the selling its shares on the Frankfurt and Hamburg bourse, has seen its 13.9% stake written down.“The stake is currently classified as “financial assets available for sale” at a value of €489m, but would only be worth €291m at the lower end of the IPO offer price, implying a potential hit of some €192m for TUI,” Aphaliner said.The looming write-down had forced TUI to withdraw 300,000 shares from the over-allotment portion, but will see an immediate loss on those that it does sell.“HGV (the city of Hamburg investment arm) and Kuhne Maritime do not reveal their current holding value of their Hapag-Lloyd shares but they are also expected to take a significant loss on the IPO,” Alphaliner concluded.And Loadstar sources in the German shipping hub report that some city figures are have begun to ask why the flotation was not delayed until market conditions improved.last_img read more

Politics and stock surges: Investment experts weigh in

first_img 2 House committee poised to advance SECURE 2.0 retirement savings bill Subscribe for original insights, commentary and analysis of the issues facing the financial advice community, from the InvestmentNews team. “We don’t invest in most of these stocks — so it hasn’t affected our client portfolios. But I do think it’s a sign of where we are in the markets,” DeSisto said. “What we watch for is whether there’ll be potential ramifications of seeing all this activity.” For example, Robinhood placed restrictions on GameStop, AMC and other shorted stocks last week, and lawmakers like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, expressed deep concern. 3 So far 2021 has brought a Democratic White House, GameStop Corp.’s short squeeze, and cautious optimism about an economic recovery that hinges on the success rate of the coronavirus vaccines that are now being distributed.  The Gates divorce: Lessons for financial advisers Why Tony Robbins, tax shelters and financial advisers don’t mix 5 PIABA pushes for more transparency on firm culture Newsletters 4 1 InvestCloud to acquire Advicent and NaviPlan planning software House panel unanimously passes SECURE 2.0 “It’s very difficult to grow an economy when you have a shrinking population,” Essele said. “This is the situation that we see from a lot of other developed nations like Japan and Germany. So from my perspective and Commonwealth’s perspective, we’re less focused on the administration piece and more focused on the demographic shift over the next five years.” When it comes to higher taxes and regulations, Chattopadhyay expects these to take second place for the Biden administrations behind its first objective — pushing more money out the door into the hands of people and small businesses, he said. “Given the balance of the Senate, I think further taxes increasing, especially on the corporate side, is highly unlikely,” he said. “More money comes into the economy with the fiscal policy that feeds into corporate profits, and the proof is in the pudding, with corporate profits almost making a full V-shaped recovery.” The economy might start to feel the hangover from this additional economic relief once inflation effects start kicking in, DeSisto said. “That’s when the Fed has to actually do something,” she said. “They’ve changed their policy in the last year to allow for higher inflation … Once they start to see higher inflation is when they start adjusting interest rates higher, and that’s potentially when you can see some issues with the higher debt levels in this country.” Missed the show? Check out the full webinar on demand here.  While final decisions around other impending factors such as stimulus checks and interest rates are still uncertain, investment experts from Commonwealth Financial Network, Carson Group and Anchor Capital Advisors talked about their expectations for how the year will shake out during an InvestmentNews webinar last Wednesday. The gamification of investing, which spurred a market — and media — frenzy last week as the historic GameStop rally played out, was mostly “noise” and not necessarily something that will permeate other areas of the market, said Peter Essele, vice president of investment management and research at Commonwealth. “I absolutely agree with the gamification,” Essele said. “The [GameStop] activity was the result of gamers trying to squeeze out hedge funds, but it’s a bit of noise … The GameStop phenomenon overshadowed the Federal Reserve’s dovish tone in regards to the softening of the economy in the latter portion of 2020.” Still, it’s tough to ignore how the GameStop stock surge shed light on a larger industry issue, which is trader-induced market volatility, said Saumen Chattopadhyay, chief investment officer at Carson Partners. “We have seen this before, what I call ‘flows before pros,’” he said. “Volatility is on the rise with Robinhood and the GameStop surge that’s happening in the market.” What’s also notable is the way the free trading app Robinhood and social media drove these stocks higher with no other market fundamentals contributing to the surge, said Jennifer DeSisto, chief investment officer with Anchor Capital Advisors. In light of the new political atmosphere as the Biden administration enters the White House, conventional wisdom suggests a Democratic administration results in higher taxes and more regulation, which are not good for the economy, Essele said. “At Commonwealth, we tend to be big believers in not mixing politics with the economy or market,” he said. “I tell my clients to vote in the booth, not in your portfolio.” This strategy reflects the fact that there’s “very little evidence” to prove that the political party in power has longer-term impacts on the direction of the economy or stock market, Essele said. “We all know that politicians like to take credit for wins or blame opponents for failures,” he said. “But the fact of the matter is, overall they have very little influence over the direction of things because the two most important inputs for long-term economic growth are technological innovation and population expansion within the framework of a free market system, and 200 years of our economy will tell you that.” Given that, advisers should focus more on an aging demographic in the U.S. and the declining birth rate, Essele said. The birth rate is at 11.6 births per 1,000 people, according to the CDC. And estimates show that from July 1, 2019 to July 1, 2020, the population grew by just 0.35%, according to the Census Bureau, which is the lowest annual growth rate since at least 1900.
