Lemongrass will operate the lab for users for one month, with no obligation.

Lemongrass will also leverage non-RISE applications and provide initial BTP integration mapping. It starts with a funded assessment to chart a rapid migration to RISE with SAP, categorize non-RISE applications, provide an integrated approach to migration, complete with a supporting business case.
  • SAP Analytics Lemongrass Accelerator – For customers using or wanting to use cloud-native data services such as Redshift, BigQuery, Synapse, and Snowflake, Lemongrass will recreate SAP data structures in these tools to enable easier movement of data. The goal is to empower business users with self-service data capabilities to run machine learning and AI on their datasets.

“Our approach with these offerings is to help SAP users make a smooth transition to the cloud, while enabling all the best features that the best cloud providers have to offer,” said Eamonn O’Neill, CTO at Lemongrass. “Once an SAP user decides that a cloud migration is right for them, Lemongrass is the only partner they will need.”

Secondary listings on the Abu Dhabi Stock Exchange (ADX) are attracting increased interest among Emirati private and family businesses due to new exchange regulations, according to a leading developer.

New Abu Dhabi Stock Exchange regulations are attracting more international investors, improving fair price discovery and improving transparency and levels of disclosure, according to Dr. Faisal Ali Mousa, Chairman of Fam Holding, a leading property developer based in Sharjah in the UAE. Fam Holding will soon be listed on Abu Dhabi’s “Secondary Market”, which has recently been renamed “Growth Market”.

Growth market ADX, with a market capitalization of Dh62 billion, recorded a “robust performance” in 2021 with the value of shares traded exceeding Dh16 billion, while the total number of companies listed on the market went to 13.

ADX comprises two markets. The primary market is where investors buy and sell securities they already own after the company has sold its offering in the primary market; while ADX’s second market (Growth Market) is part of ADX’s existing infrastructure for listing private companies where investors can buy and sell private company securities.

The Growth Market, which replaced the Second Market, created in 2014, offers companies access to a large investor base, key support from the ADX on investor engagement and an opportunity to improve their corporate image. brand. The marketplace will allow companies to begin their capital markets journey with companies capable of listing shares directly on the stock exchange, without the need for an IPO. This ecosystem is structured to help them drive their growth while gaining the experience of having their shares publicly traded with the wider associated benefits such as access to capital and funding, improved governance and increased liquidity for shareholders.

Fam Holding will capitalize on the wave of IPOs in the second largest stock market in the Middle East, allowing it to embark on a growth phase that will transform it into a larger and more international player in the sector. real estate.

Founded in 2009, the property developer has an investment portfolio worth MAD 2 billion and 5,750 residential apartments in the UAE.

“Listing on the ADX Growth Market is a sound option for private and family businesses with strong positions and significant growth potential as it allows them to grow their businesses and businesses faster, in preparation for listing on the primary market at a later stage,” Ali said. Musa.

In response to the growing number of private and family businesses seeking to list their shares on the market, the UAE’s secondary market has recently seen tremendous momentum, he said.

This is a result of the financial market’s efforts to broaden investment opportunities by increasing the number of listed companies and providing more options to investors, he added.

Following its transformation into a private joint-stock company with a capital of MAD 50 million and obtaining the initial authorization for listing on the ADX, Fam Holding has announced its intention to list its shares on the market in ADX growth. — issacjohn@khaleejtimes.com

Dispatch in Belarus: the case of imprisoned law student Sofya Sapega – JURIST http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/dispatch-in-belarus-the-case-of-imprisoned-law-student-sofya-sapega-jurist/ Tue, 10 May 2022 22:16:41 +0000 http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/dispatch-in-belarus-the-case-of-imprisoned-law-student-sofya-sapega-jurist/ Belarusian law students enrolled at the European University for the Humanities file reports with JURIST on the current circumstances in Belarus under the constitutionally contested presidency of Alexander Lukashenka. For confidentiality and security reasons, we retain the name of the correspondent submitting this report. The text has only been slightly modified to respect the author’s voice.

Last Friday, May 6, a Belarusian court sentenced a Russian woman, Sofya Sapega, to six years in prison on several counts. It would seem that a large number of Russians sit in Belarusian prisons, but this is a special case, so let’s look at its features.

Sofya Sapega is the girlfriend of Roman Protasevich, a Belarusian journalist who was one of the organizers of the Belarusian protests in 2020. After that he worked with [Belarusian democracy movement leader] Svetlana Tikhanovskaya’s headquarters in Vilnius. Sofya is a citizen of the Russian Federation. Sofya is also a student in the International Law and European Union Law program at the European University for the Humanities, as is the author of this dispatch.

Sofya and Roman were returning from Athens to Vilnius on May 23, 2021 when their Ryanair plane was forced to land at Minsk National Airport. After that, both were arrested. Ryanair pilots said they were ordered to land the plane at the Belarusian airport from dispatchers in Minsk. It is important to note that an international commission has recognized this fact. Simply put, Belarusian authorities, violating all principles of international law, hijacked a plane in order to rob two people.

A few days later, the whole world saw Roman’s confession with bruises on his face. There was also a video in which Sofya said that she was the administrator of the Telegram channel “Black Book of Belarus”.

“Black Book of Belarus” is a Telegram channel that publishes the names, surnames, addresses and functions of people who were involved in violence against citizens of Belarus in 2020: police officers, prosecutors, judges and other officials.

As proof of Sofya’s guilt, law enforcement posted her “thesis”, titled “The Black Book of Belarus as a Creative Project of a New Belarus”. But even this, Belarusian officials could not do it right and they made several mistakes:

1. The book indicated the Faculty of International Law. There is no such faculty at EHU. The program is entitled “International Law and European Union Law”.
2. The job pointed to a teacher who had never worked at EHU.

We can already conclude that such a document never existed. Later, representatives of the University announced the real subject of Sofya’s thesis, which had nothing to do with the “Black Book of Belarus”.

In June, Roman and Sofya were placed under house arrest. After that, nothing was known about Sofya until May 6 this year. But Roman was used as an actor in an attempt to discredit the opposition. It was very painful to see her tears and emotions during these “talks”.

We return to the courtroom. Sofya was sentenced to six years in prison on two counts: inciting social discord and unlawfully collecting and disseminating information about private life. But six years is not all. Sopya can apply for clemency (she has already done so, but it was refused). Pardon in the Republic of Belarus is one of the powers of the president. After the court’s decision, Sofya must pay $70,000 to seek clemency a second time. This is “compensation” for the victims. In total, 238 people would be victims in this case.

These are incredible numbers, especially for Belarus. But there is another way – an application for a transfer to Russia. Sofya, as a citizen of the Russian Federation, can apply to be sent there. After that, the verdict must be reviewed. She can also ask for Putin’s forgiveness. But, as you have already read in this article, there are a lot of Russians in Belarusian prisons, and Russia does not care about its citizens at all.

However, this is the best option for Sofia. Hopefully everything will end well for her and she will be free as soon as possible.

Investment theme

Risk and reward live in many activities. Few companies are as vocal about it as the entertainment industry. Wealth creation is the most important portfolio goal for most investors, due to the risks of unexpected financial emergencies, large planned and overly deliberate expenses. preparation for delayed retirement. The expansion of longevity through advances in bioscience technology compounds these latter financial shortfalls for many individual investors.

Difficult times in loose companies can attract the attention of depressed investors, but no matter how bad the market averages seem to be, there are always a few stocks that show just how good things can be, even now.

We monitor over 4,000 stocks, ETFs, REITs and indices each market day to see what derivatives market sharks in options, futures, swaps and other exotics identify as ways to turn certain parties from uncertainty to certainty. What weighted investors are willing to pay for insurance to get there indicates how far prices are still likely to go.

On more than half of these monitored issues, past history paints periods of rewarding picks with very believable odds. More than two decades of daily observation helps to know which ones and when to believe what they say.

Today’s Survey of Over 4,000 Stocks Reveals Hundreds of Stocks Exercise the Market-Maker [MM] capital liquidity capabilities, some of which, such as Monarch Casino & Resort (NASDAQ: MCRI) reveal strong, previously reliable indications of near-term capital gains ahead.

Big Picture: Risks vs. Rewards

We have grouped MCRI with other similar gaming and resort companies that are frequently compared by individual investors. The predictions implied by the MM hedging actions facilitating bulk volume trades ordered by the big dollar funds provide a likely future price outlook for comparison. Actual market outcomes for these stocks following previous guidance with today’s higher forecast proportions add perspective to valuations.

Figure 1

Risk-reward trade-off

The trade-offs here are between short-term upside price gains (green horizontal scale) considered worth protecting by market makers with short positions in each of the stocks, and past actual price declines experienced during of the holding of these shares (red vertical scale) . Both scales are percent change from zero to 25%.

The intersections of these coordinates with the numbered positions are identified by the stock symbols in the blue field to the right. The S&P 500 Index ETF (SPY) Market Index Compromise Standard Is In Place [4], an unusually high level of decline. Our primary interest is in MCRI at [5].

The dotted diagonal line marks the points of equal upward price change predictions derived from Market-Maker [MM] hedging actions, and actual worst-case price declines from positions that could have been taken as a result of earlier MA predictions like today’s.

This map is a good starting point, but it can only cover some of the investment characteristics that must often influence an investor’s choice of where to invest their capital. The table in Figure 3 covers the above considerations and several more.

The main questions for all alternatives are “how likely are these outcomes to occur” and “can their impact be improved?” »

Figure 2 presents the MM price range predictions [B] for [C] for the candidate alternative investments in Figure 1, along with the results [ I ] of their last 5 years of daily forecasts with the same proportions [G] of today’s up-to-down range index [RI] prospects. The numerical value of RI is that percentage of the whole range below the current market price.

Contributing to this comparison are the demonstrated chances of a successful profit forecast in the column [H]its complement of 100 – H, or frequency of loss, size of net gain achieved [I] and the size of the worst loss [F] experienced during previous holding periods such that, when weighted appropriately [O] and [P]they produce the Net of [Q]. Respecting the power of composition, [Q] converted to basis points per day [J] of capital commitment to [R] has a very comparable figure of merit (of) for investment preferences whose primary objective is to build readily liquidable capital to meet emergency, retirement or other planned needs.

By its use as a ranking, the merit factor (fom) [R] for each line provides an additional measure of attraction, emphasizing the capital gain potential for MCRI. Since [H] odds on wins versus losses and [J] impact of holding periods [R]the sample sizes from which past results are drawn require careful consideration, but are comparable across all types of equity investments.

Also please note the comparison of these stocks with the S&P 500 Index ETF and with the average of the 3203 stocks for which we are compiling the population-specific forecasts here. From this population, we use the dimensions shown in Figure 2 to rank the most promising and historically attested few stocks right now, each based on past MM forecasts with both up and down balances like today.

Recent trends in MCRI forecasts by market makers

The recent weakness in MCRI’s stock price approximates much of the equity market. Apparently, it caught the attention of some institutional investment organizations. Over the past couple of days, their buy orders have supported heightened expectations for prices ahead.

The current upside target of $82 offers a forward-looking gain of +20%, but its current price of $69 is at the bottom of market professionals’ expectations of $69-$83.

MM Price Range Forecast Trends

blockdesk.com

The small “thumbnail” image at the bottom of Figure 3 shows the frequency of the past 5 years of daily MCRI beach indices [RI]. At its current level of 3 (near the expected low of the range), almost all subsequent IRs, and their prices, have clearly been higher. In the past, there have been 19 of the 1261 daily forecasts with IRs of 3.

All but two of the 19 met their high-end forecasts. The historical odds of hitting past goals was 89 out of 100. And their average gains, net of those 2, were +15% in 37 market days (7 weeks) of capital commitment to the business – a rate of more than 170% per year. No guarantees, just a good chance for a big rate of return by being an active investor.

Conclusion

Comparison of Monarch Casino & Resort with its industry competitors makes it a good choice for the industry’s most desirable short-term capital gain vehicle at this point.

“Every American will see the position of every senator,” Schumer said at a news conference with heads of state in New York. Republicans “can’t dodge it anymore. Republicans tried to dodge it.”

The Democrat said he will file a closure on Monday and the 100-seat chamber will vote on the bill on Wednesday.

Schumer called the proposed ruling an “abomination,” noting that a majority of Americans want to preserve women’s right to abortion and health care.

“The choice shouldn’t be with a handful of right-wing judges. The choice shouldn’t be with a handful of right-wing politicians. It’s a woman’s right. It’s plain and simple,” he said. -he declares.

Last week, a draft decision was leaked showing a majority of the nation’s highest court would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, the legal precedent guaranteeing access to abortion for Americans.

Estimates for next week’s US investment grade bond sales are $25 billion to $40 billion. That’s well ahead of this week’s selling, which fell short of consensus for the second week in a row due to sharp swings in risk asset prices.

Barclays Plc has revised its broader investment grade spread forecast to 145-150 basis points by the end of the year, from its previous forecast of 95-100 basis points, due to the growing concerns.

Corporate bond yields are just a few percentage points from pandemic highs and could even hit them next week.

In the short term, the market will continue to react to wild swings in US stocks and Treasuries. The April report on the consumer products index, due on May 11, could be another catalyst for the markets.

Junk under pressure

Some borrowers in the U.S. leveraged loan market began to feel the heat of the volatility that rocked other markets on Thursday and Friday after demand in the primary loan market began to slump in the wake of the largest rate increase by the Federal Reserve in two decades.

Still, issuers see an opportunity to retire debt as demand in the primary market remained stable through April, albeit subdued from a year ago, and loan prices remained much higher. resilient compared to fixed rate corporate bonds. These prices fell only slightly after the Fed’s rate hike, still supported by their floating rate structure which gives investors more protection when rates rise.

Eight deals are in syndication next week, including a $1.6 billion debt deal for KKR & Co.’s acquisition of cybersecurity firm Barracuda Networks from Thoma Bravo LLC.

U.S. junk bonds were heading for the fifth straight week of losses, with yields hitting a two-year high of 7.14% after credit risk rose the most in two years. Supply has fallen to the lowest in more than a decade, with year-to-date bond sales at just $54.1 billion, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The US junk bond index posted losses of 0.36% on Thursday and month-to-date losses were 0.54%. There are no current deals for next week.

But for savvy secondary market investors, there are still deals that can be found and investors can start looking to come back. With yields now above 7%, the market is becoming more attractive and it’s time “to deploy capital into high yield,” Bank of America Corp said. in a report on Friday. Investors should be aware, however, that more widening is likely to occur, strategist Oleg Melentyev said in the note.

Struggling TPC Group Inc., which entered prepackaged bankruptcy talks and failed to pay interest on secured notes earlier this year, will report results next week.

Fed hawks Waller and Bullard push back ‘behind the curve’ view By Reuters http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/fed-hawks-waller-and-bullard-push-back-behind-the-curve-view-by-reuters/ Sat, 07 May 2022 01:25:00 +0000 http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/fed-hawks-waller-and-bullard-push-back-behind-the-curve-view-by-reuters/

By Anne Sapphire

(Reuters) – Two of the Federal Reserve’s most vocal political hawks on Friday pushed back against the idea that the U.S. central bank had missed the mark in the fight against high inflation, citing a tightening in financial conditions that began long before the Fed won’t start raising interest rates in March.

“How far behind the curve could we have been in terms of timing if, using forward guidance, effective rate hikes from September 2021 were considered?” Fed Governor Christopher Waller said yields on two-year Treasuries rose last fall as the Fed began signaling the end of its ultra-easy policy.

The move reflects the equivalent of two Fed rate hikes through December, he said.

Speaking at the same Stanford University conference, titled “How Monetary Policy Lagged the Curve,” St. Louis Fed President James Bullard argued that the Fed n is “not as far behind the curve as you might think”.

Earlier this week, the Fed raised its key rate to a range of 0.75% to 1%. Critics say that’s far too low to fight inflation at three times the Fed’s 2% target.

Bullard said he agreed, calling inflation “far too high” and calling for a “rapid” hike in rates, up to perhaps 3.6%, to get inflation under control. But he noted that markets are already pricing in much of that increase.

Rate futures traders currently forecast a fed funds rate of 3% to 3.25% by the end of the year.

“It’s going in the right direction…hopefully we can get away from that characterization behind the curve soon,” Bullard said.

The two were among the first Fed policymakers last year to call for a quick removal of accommodative monetary policy and a faster start to interest rate hikes.

Bullard, in fact, opposed the Fed’s quarter-point rate hike in March, deeming it insufficient.

But both joined their colleagues in endorsing the half-point rate hike announced this week. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell, speaking after the rate decision was announced, announced further hikes to come, including half-point rate hikes in June and July.

Waller used his Friday speech to trace how the economic data appeared to first ratify, then challenge, his own view from last spring: that inflation would prove transitory as supply chains heal and the one-off fiscal stimulus would fade, and that the labor market was poised to roar as COVID-19 receded.

Most of his colleagues shared the first point of view; opinions were more divided on the second. In the end, Waller said, inflation turned out to be much higher and more persistent than he had expected.

At the same time, he described the ‘punch in the gut’ he was feeling as two weaker than expected monthly employment reports in August and September seemed to undermine the thesis of the labor market healing. .

As it turned out, subsequent data revisions showed that the US labor market had been stronger than the real-time data suggested.

“If we knew then what we know now, I think the (Fed) would have accelerated the taper and raised rates sooner,” Waller said. “But nobody knew that, and it’s in the nature of doing real-time monetary policy.”

By early November, most policymakers were of the view that high and rising inflation would not come down fast enough on its own, and that companies’ demand for workers far exceeded a sluggish labor supply. to straighten up.

“That’s when…the FOMC pivoted,” Waller said. The Federal Open Market Committee, known as the FOMC, is the governing body of the Fed.

The conference featured several former Fed policymakers and economists who argued that the Fed had fallen so far behind the curve that it would almost surely end up causing a recession as it sought to catch up by raising rates higher. rapidly.

Former Fed Vice Chairman of Oversight Randal Quarles, who says he was the Fed’s most hawkish member until Waller took over late last year, told the conference that in hindsight, it was clear “that it would have been better to start raising rates last September”.

It wasn’t a lack of nerves, politics or stupidity, he said on Friday. “It was a complicated situation with little precedent, and people make mistakes.”
