CGS-CIMB launches online trading platform for retail investors

first_img“We’re going to promote capital investment starting with senior high school students, so they become more active as time goes by,” Sugiharto said.Sugiharto said that, with such a business strategy, the securities firm was optimistic that it could book 10,000 new retail accounts this year.Companies such as CGS-CIMB Sekuritas are tailoring their business strategies to lure retail investors, as the low participation of individuals in Indonesia’s stock market at less than 1 percent of the population leaves ample untapped potential.The number of single investor identifications (SID) registered at the Indonesian Central Securities Depository (KSEI) stood at 2.4 million as of Dec. 27. The majority of investors were aged 21 to 30, with that age group accounting for 44.62 percent of total investors.The iTrade platform is equipped with historical stock charts, a heatmap feature to monitor stock price performance and stock analysts to provide investment guidelines to the retail investors.Sugiharto said iTrade had features for investors to receive assistance and market information from the company.“Through iTrade, we are offering a one-stop-shop for investment services. For young buyers, there may be some investment that we won’t introduce to them, as we tailor our wealth management to [a client’s] profile,” CGS-CIMB president director Lim Kim Siah said. (mpr)Topics : Securities firm PT CGS-CIMB Sekuritas Indonesia, a joint venture between China Galaxy International Financial Limited and CIMB Group, has launched an online stock trading platform to attract retail investors, including high school and university students.The company’s retail equity director, Sugiharto Widjaja, said on Wednesday that the online trading platform, called iTrade, would give individual investors easier access to the equity market.The securities company, previously known as PT CIMB Sekuritas Indonesia, had also opened stock market galleries at several universities in the country, such as Islamic University (UII) in Yogyakarta, to disseminate information about the capital market to students, he said.last_img read more

Stratford residents tend to stay for the long haul

first_imgStratford man Dan Reardon.. PICTURE: BRENDAN RADKESTRATFORD is only small but has a knack for attracting people for the long haul – like beekeeper and motorbike enthusiast Dan Reardon. The suburb is wedged between Freshwater and Aeroglen on the northern side of Mt Whitfield, with its median house prices among Cairns’ highest at $550,000.Mr Reardon and his wife Gail have lived in the same Cochrane St home for 52 years.“The views from our house are panoramic and it’s so nice and quiet here,” the 74-year-old said. “We’re five-minutes from the airport and seven-minutes from town – it’s got all the benefits.”Mr Reardon said they bought the block for just $700 all those years ago, with the house costing just $8000 to build.One of his great thrills is enjoying cups of coffee on the home’s large veranda.“We get breezes here all year-round,” he said More from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms3 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns3 days agoHome to several quaint shops and a medical centre, Stratford can at certain times be buzzing with activity.The picturesque Jalarra Park is a popular destination for family picnics and barbecues. Vanessa Robinson of LJ Hooker Cairns Edge Hill said the suburb was “highly sought-after”. “There’s a lot of character homes and beautiful Queenslanders at Stratford, and people appreciate its proximity to schools, the hospital and airport,” she said. “You’ll definitely get strong numbers through the door at open homes.”Stratford median house prices have grown by more than 30 per cent over the past three years. According to CoreLogic, the average Stratford home spends 120 days on the market. A large four-bedroom home at 39 Kamerunga Rd was sold in February by Elite Real Estate for $475,000, while a striking five-bedroom Queenslander at 39 Behan St fetched $622,500 in January. According to Cairns Regional Council, the suburb was named after Harry Stratford, one of the first Australian troops to land on the shores of Gallipoli in World War I.last_img read more

Frontiers frustrate parcels giant

first_imgWhich single company provides US railways with the most revenue? According to Bob Longenecker, Vice President Transportation, it is United Parcels Service at $500m a year. He assured the Intermodal 96 conference in London on December 5 that ’UPS is a customer of every American railroad’; while this is hyperbole (there are some 500 US operators), the commitment to work with rail managers to develop high quality service at competitive prices is plain to see. UPS has dedicated piggyback trains on Burlington Northern Santa Fe that take priority over everything else on the tracks, including passengers. Longenecker says US railways ’are commercially aware, listen to customers, and give the operating flexibility and commitments we need.’He would dearly like to set up similar services in Europe, where it handles 127 million packages in Germany alone. Aside from potential cost and speed advantages, Longenecker sees rail as ’a better environmental alternative’ which ’can overcome the increasing delays involved in using the congested road network, familiar to all of us here in Europe.’ Unhappily, rail use remains limited to ’a small segment’ handled by DB. A memorandum of understanding is being drafted that could see UPS using the TGV Nord Europe network, but ’this is very small.’ Longenecker applauds the vision of Transport Commissioner Neil Kinnock of freight freeways spanning the continent, on which freight and passengers would get ’equal priority’ and any licensed carrier could operate trains with minimal delay and formalities. The high quality track is there. Schedules to beat those of BNSF’s hotshot freights are maintained without difficulty – for passengers. Only absent is the collective will to make it work. olast_img read more

High-deficit pension sponsors ‘could outperform’ in 2017

first_imgCompanies with high pension deficits could see their stock prices outperform if bond yields continue to rise, a strategist has predicted.Ankit Gheedia, European equity and derivative strategist at BNP Paribas, argued in a strategy note that a basket of 40 European companies with the highest pension deficits relative to their market capitalisation would outperform European equity indices if liabilities fell this year.“Since August, credit yields have risen sharply amid the global bond market sell-off,” Gheedia said.“Higher yields should be a relief for pan-European companies struggling with pension deficits as a result of low interest rates, and we expect a reversal in the pension liability trend as yields climb back up to pre-Brexit levels.” Companies in BNP Paribas’s ‘Pension Deficit Basket’ had an average pension shortfall of 37% of market capitalisation.The basket included a significant exposure to industrial, material and consumer discretionary companies.Gheedia reported that the stocks were valued at “near three-year low levels”.A number of reports in recent years have sought to highlight the danger to shareholders posed by sponsors’ obligations to large pension funds.For example, a 2014 study by Pension Insurance Corporation and Llewellyn Consulting found that, for every £100 (€117) increase in a FTSE 100 company’s reported pension deficit, its market capitalisation declined by £160.The study said: “The implication is that reported pension liabilities are regarded by markets as being systematically undervalued; that markets give larger weight to pension liabilities than to pension assets; and/or that a higher level of liabilities is viewed as representing a higher risk.” UK 10-year government bond yields have risen from an all-time low of 0.518% in mid-August to 1.335% on 4 January.BNP Paribas strategists have predicted a continued rise towards 2.15%, which Gheedia said should push corporate bond yields higher.“This could drive a substantial reduction in the pension deficit reported by companies during the latest earning season,” he said.#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*#last_img read more

Stars aligning for buyers as sellers meet market: Auctioneer

first_img Don’t let a property flip become a flop Ian and Kylie Weir with their son Julius in Indooroopilly, Brisbane. Their home was sold by Martin Hood of Remax Riverside on February 1 for $1.05m. Picture: AAP Image/Claudia Baxter.During January and February, in capital cities, we have fewer auctions than other months because most auction are preceded by four weeks of advertising and open houses.This means March is when auctions start to tell the story of the year and the last couple of weeks have painted a very interesting picture.There has been a real sense of unpredictability in the market. My first significant insight came on March 9 when I stood in front of a large crowd on Griffith Street, New Farm, and sold an incredible riverfront residence under the hammer marking Brisbane’s highest ever residential auction sale $7.75m. A very strong early sign in the Brisbane market. MORE REAL ESTATE NEWS 49 Conifer Street, Alderley, sold under the hammer for $590,000. Agents were Scott Darwon and Robert Freeman of Ray White — New Farm.Then on Saturday March 16, I suited up and headed out to call five auctions — with four out of the five selling under the hammer! 9am — 49 Conifer Street Alderley $590k11am — 4 Strut Street Kedron $900k12 noon — 6 Hollins Cres New Farm $1.95m.1pm — 71 Robe Street Grange $1,000,0013:30pm — 59 Haven Street Pullenvale (passed in) $1.8m Clayfield home to be demolished to make way for ‘monster’ Australia’s cheapest suburb is by the beachcenter_img 6 Hollins Crescent, New Farm, sold for $1.95m.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus13 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market13 hours agoThis strong weekend of sales had me intrigued, so I called Mitch Peereboom a fellow auctioneer to hear how his day had played out.He had seven auctions and sold all seven under the hammer!10am — 10 Union Street Clayfield $1.25m11am — 81 Laurel Ave Chelmer $1.25m12 noon — 9 Glen Street Highgate Hill $725k1pm — 20 Vista Circuit Runcorn $660k2pm — 23 Arcoona Street Sunnybank $650k3pm — 18 Beattie Street West End $850k4pm — 7 Jabiru Drive Mango Hill $572k 10 Union St, Clayfield, sold for $1.25m. Agents were Shenal Yigitbas and Dwight Ferguson of Ray White — Ascot. These auctions show strong sales and there is a temptation to jump on the ‘boom’ bus. But you can’t shape the market as thumping simply due to under the hammer sales. What it does show is there are buyers in the market and Brisbane owners were happy to accept their prices — which means the market is moving forward.Next week I will close out March with 20-plus auctions at Ray White New Farms ‘Auction Under the Stars Event’ and it will be another great barometer of how the market is shaping up.It is fair to say that these results, if continued, could see a lift in prices. But to gauge it on a couple of strong weeks could be a little optimistic. *Haesley Cush is a licensed real estate agent and auctioneer, based in Brisbane. He’s been a columnist with News Corp since 2015 and regularly travels Australia and New Zealand working with agents, seeing first hand how the various markets are moving around the country.

Wello Seeks New Funding Wave

first_imgFinnish technology company focused on ocean-wave energy conversion, Wello, has launched a new funding campaign.Wello is looking to raise  €1 million – €2.5 million in exchange of equity between 4.34% and 10.18% until April 23, 2019.Through Invesdor, Wello is offering its shares at a minimum investment of 140 shares, at a share price of €3.73 per share.“It’s been calculated that by 2050 wave energy could fulfill one-tenth of the world’s clean energy needs. That potential is nowadays practically unexplored,” says CEO Heikki Paakkinen.Wello has already deployed and tested the first iteration of its Penguin technology in Orkney, Scotland. WEC1, as the device is called, has just passed the two years mark of continuous deployment in the water.WEC2, the newest Penguin model, will soon depart its Tallinn shipyard to be added to the Orkney grid, while WEC3, fully designed and under negotiations with the shipyard, is said to have shown massive power output promise.In the past two years, Wello has received many inquiries for commercial wave parks (arrays of grid-connected devices) from all around the world. One of them, located in Indonesia, has been approved and is currently in the design phase. With 10 MW of installed capacity, the Nusa Lembongan site is presently the largest in-the-works wave-energy park on the planet.“After much research, prototyping, and field testing we can say that everything works perfectly, the technology and survivability of the devices are proven and the Penguin is ready for commercial use,” adds Paakkinen. ”Wello is the leader in wave energy – there’s no comparable technology out there. We believe we can grow fast all over the world.”last_img read more

BHS Single-Game Scoring Record

first_imgThanks to research by Terry Giesting, I can give you the progression of the single-game scoring record in boys’ basketball at Batesville.  Earl Hazen set the record of 10 points in a 1921-22 ball game.  Stanley Barnhorst broke this record 3 years later by scoring 16 points against Moores Hill.  The first player to score 30 or more points in a game was Louis Dickman when he scored 31 points in a 1951-52 regional game against Aurora.This record was quickly broken by Ace Moorman the next season when he scored 34 against Greensburg.  The next year the record was broken again when Ham Struewing scored 36 against Cathedral of Indianapolis.  This record lasted 16 years until Jerry Bohman in 1969-70 scored 38 against Connersville.  All these records were set under the “no 3-point shot” rule.Still in the 2-point era Curt Clawson twice raised the record.  The first came in ’77 against South Decatur when Curt scored 49 points and the next season he hit 51 in an overtime win over Brookville.  The current record is held by Colt Ryan in his final high school regular season game.  With the aid of the 3-point shot, Colt scored 52 against Shelbyville.  This took place in 2009, so we have gone 5 years with no one coming near this 52-point total.  This progression in scoring took 89 years, so don’t expect a great jump in the near future.Many thanks to Terry for his research!last_img read more
