The firm raised its price target to $300 from $185. The analysts said they anticipate the stock to make “further gains in the coming months.”Roku did not provide formal Q4 guidance but said it expects the quarter’s revenue to grow in the mid-40% range year over year. The streaming provider has largely benefitted from stay-at-home orders that caused people to seek out in-home entertainment. It’s also benefiting from the shift of viewing away from traditional TV channels as people cut the cord.“We remain Positive on ROKU as we view the company as one of the few ways to play the secular linear TV-to-digital engagement and ad budget shift, which is accelerating during the pandemic,” Susquehanna analysts wrote in a Friday note. The firm also raised its price target to $275 from $185.- Advertisement – The Roku 3 television streaming player menu is shown on a television in Los Angeles, California, U.S., on Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013.Patrick T.

UK will be more welcoming to Indonesians after Brexit, ambassador says

first_imgEditor’s note: Paragraph four in this article has been changed.Topics : British Ambassador to Indonesia Owen Jenkins says the United Kingdom will be more welcoming to Indonesians to study in Britain following the country’s departure from the European Union, saying the UK will implement a new policy that will relax visa and stay permit requirements after Brexit takes place on Jan. 31.Jenkins said the policy was in line with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s intention of making the UK more open and welcoming to tourists and students from across the globe.“To Indonesians who are interested in traveling or studying in the UK, [the country] will be an even more open, welcoming and positive place for Indonesians than it has been in the past,” he said on Friday. “I am happy to give the reassurance that the situation does not change. [sic] Indonesian students who wants to travel to the UK always needed a British visa and that does not change. Indonesian students in the UK who want to travel to the rest of Europe always needed a Schengen visa and that won’t change,” the British envoy said.According to 2019 UK Immigration Statistics data, the UK government issued 2,997 student visas to Indonesians from the first quarter until the third quarter of 2019.Indonesian students can study in Britain as long as they can pay their tuition fees or obtain a scholarship, such as from the government-backed Indonesian Endowment Fund for Education (LPDP) and UK-backed Chevening.

Länsförsäkringar brings SEK23bn in equities management inhouse

first_imgThe mutual funds arm of Sweden’s Länsförsäkringar is bringing almost one-quarter of its assets in house and has poached two senior portfolio managers from Nordic asset manager Alfred Berg to take charge of the new task.The insurance alliance, which also provides pensions and is owned by 23 independent insurers in Sweden, announced its unit LF Mutual Fund Company (Länsförsäkringar fondförvaltning) would start managing all SEK23bn (€2.5bn) of its investments in Swedish equities this autumn, in its first move to take asset management in house.The mutual funds unit had SKE109bn in assets under management (AUM) at the end of 2015.Eva Gottfridsdotter-Nilsson, president of the LF Mutual Fund Company, said: “In recent years, corporate governance work has become increasingly integrated in our management, and, in this way, we will become clearer and more effective in our corporate governance of Swedish equity funds.” She said that since the firm’s customers had a large part of their fund investors in Swedish equities, it felt natural to concentrate its in-sourcing task in this area.“The change will also contribute to higher efficiency and create synergies,” she said.As things stand, around 98% of total AUM in the LF Mutual Funds Company is managed by external portfolio managers, with the unit just managing five funds-of-funds itself.The unit’s funds are used by Länsförsäkringar’s clients in unit-linked pension saving.Gottfridsdotter-Nilsson said Länsförsäkringar’s mutual funds that invested in other asset classes and abroad would continue to be managed externally.She said customers’ savings should be managed by those who had the best prerequisites for the job and the highest level of skills.“Today, we are so large in Swedish equities we ourselves can recruit the best managers in the market,” she said, adding that the firm had now succeeded in doing just that.Länsförsäkringar has hired Peter Norhammar and Petter Löfqvist to manage Swedish equities at its mutual funds arm from this autumn.Both men will step into newly created roles at the Swedish insurance group’s subsidiary, and will have the title of portfolio manager.Norhammar is currently head of Swedish equities and senior portfolio manager for Sweden at Alfred Berg.He heads the Swedish equities team there and is lead portfolio manager for Nordic listed real estate equities including the fund Alfred Berg Fastighetsfond Norden.Meanwhile, Löfqvist is senior portfolio manager for Sweden at Alfred Berg.He is the lead portfolio manager of Nordic and Swedish small caps and takes charge of the Luxembourg-domiciled fund Parvest Equity Nordic Small Cap.Norhammar and Löfqvist joined Alfred Berg in 2014.Matching the latest experience of the two new hires, Länsförsäkringar said the first step of its work to bring domestic equities management in house would be taken in the management of the Länsförsäkringar Real Estate fund and Länsförsäkringar Small Cap Sweden fund.The firm said the SEK23bn it has in domestic equities is spread across three active Swedish equity funds.last_img read more

5 Ways to Communicate Better with Your Man.

first_img Share Share LifestyleRelationships 5 Ways to Communicate Better with Your Man. by: – June 6, 2011 37 Views   no discussions Sharecenter_img Sharing is caring! Tweet by SHAPE magazineIt’s no secret that men and women communicate differently (a whole book was written on how we’re not even from the same planet)–but is there really no way to translate Mars talk to Venus speak? Dr. B. Janet Hibbs, a psychologist, couples therapist and author of Try To See It My Way, says there’s hope as long as you’re willing to adjust your “filter”–a.k.a. the part of your brain that processes what he says, spins it around and reacts to it. Ready for a practice run? Here are five common communication problems in relationships, no matter what stage they’re in.WHAT HE SAYS: “I’m sorry you feel that way.”WHAT YOU HEAR: “You’re being a psycho.”WHAT HE MEANS: “I just really want this argument to be over.”Women like to hash things out, talking issues through from start to finish in one DIY therapy session. Guys, on the other hand, have much more of a flight instinct when it comes to confrontation–especially if he doesn’t fully understand why you’re so upset.WHAT HE SAYS: “If you feel undervalued, ask for a raise.”
WHAT YOU HEAR: “Ugh, your problems are so simple–just fix it.”WHAT HE MEANS: “Work’s bothering you? Let me help!”The truth is, men tend to see themselves as problem solvers in romantic relationships, and so what comes across as condescending can actually be your guy’s way of trying to help.WHAT HE SAYS: “Uh huh. Right. Yeah.”WHAT YOU HEAR: “I couldn’t be less interested in what you’re saying.”WHAT HE MEANS: “I want to hear your story, but it’s been 10 minutes and still no punch line.”Men don’t process information in the lengthy, big-picture way that women do (fact: Women use three times more words a day than men), so telling him a story in the drawn-out way you would to one of your girlfriends isn’t going to work. In short, cut to the chase and you’ll get more of a reaction.WHAT HE SAYS: “It’s not a big deal.”
WHAT YOU HEAR: “How trivial.”
WHAT HE MEANS: “Let’s not dwell on it.”Men come from the school of suck-it-up, while women tend to need more reassurance if something is bothering them. If you two are out to dinner on Saturday, just about the last thing he wants to do is hear you harp on and on about your coworker’s testy e-mail–from Thursday.last_img read more

Lady Wildcats Hold On For Shutout Against Lady Patriots

first_imgThe Lady Wildcats blanked the Union County Patriots tonight 1-0 in brutally hot conditions. Shelby Pearson punted the ball to Grace Noble who scored the game winner with a well struck left-footed shot. Noble was a threat racking up 5 shots with 3 on goal and was not easily contained. Noble’s ability to explode and attack the goal is a skill the Wildcats have come to rely on.Also joining the attack was Jordan Nichols (4), Jess Parker (2), Jamie Stortz (1), Brylee Pace (1) and Abby Lucas (1).The midfielders played a key role in pressuring Union County and rejecting the ball back into the Patriots defensive third.The Wildcats defense held strong amid injuries. Shelby Pearson recorded 9 saves on the night anchoring what is proving to be a very tough defensive line and earning the first shut-out of the season.Courtesy of Wildcats Coach Cindy Adams.last_img read more

Cazenovia boys hoops takes pair of defeats

first_imgFrom the moment the Cazenovia boys basketball team dropped a last-second decision at Skaneateles on Jan. 22, things began to turn in the other direction.The Lakers followed up with a defeat to Holland Patent two nights later and then, at Buckley Gym last Tuesday, struggled again in a 47-40 defeat to Marcellus.Though it came into the game with a 9-4 record, the Mustangs had mostly lacked the kind of high-quality road win that it would get here, largely due to its defense. It was close most of the way, Cazenovia leading 14-12 through one period and, even when Marcellus took the lead, staying within a basket or two before the final minutes.Alex Moesch still had 17 points, while Keegan Bailey got 10 points and Ryan Romagnoli six points, but the rest of the Lakers were held to just two combined field goals as Tristan Jarvi and Luke Ingianni paced Marcellus with 13 points apiece.Now looking to break a three-game skid, Cazenovia hosted Syracuse Academy of Science on Friday night, but again went down to defeat, falling to the Atoms 68-58. Tags: boys basketballCazenoviaChittenangocenter_img Much of the game was played on even terms, the Lakers seeing Moesch get 17 points, Ty Freyer earn 12 points and Bailey add 11 points as Romagnoli (seven points) and A.J. Rothfeld (seven points) closely followed.Yet SAS started the game 16-8 and did a good job protecting its lead the rest of the way, led by Zachhaeus Smith, who earned 23 points and 12 rebounds, and Owyn Blue, who got 19 points and 12 rebounds.Chittenango had undergone plenty of its own struggles this winter, but had a bright moment last Tuesday when it shut down Mexico in a 44-33 victory.All the Tigers could manage was nine points in the first half, the Bears’ pressure allowing it to overcome its own up-and-down offense and maintain a steady advantage the rest of the way.Bryce Bishop paced Chittenango, earning 13 points. Tyrus Kelly had 11 points, while Brian Schermerhorn gained eight points.Looking for back-to-back wins against Hannibal on Friday, the Bears got there with ease, whipping the Warriors 56-33 in a game where it roared out to a 32-10 halftime advantage.Kelly nearly matched Hannibal by himself, finishing with 24 points, half of it from four 3-pointers. Bishop gained eight points, with Schermerhorn and James Miller earning seven points apiece.Cazenovia’s lone game this week is a Tuesday trip to Jordan-Elbridge as Chittenango would host Institute of Technology Central Tuesday and go to Homer Friday night.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story last_img read more
