View photo Steve Rothgeb examines a Swansea City club looking to bounce back after a difficult 2013/2014 season 2013-2014 Season Summary Sometimes in the Premier League, success can be a dangerous thing, particularly if you are a club without deep pockets. That was the story with Swansea City last season, as they reaped the reward of a superb 2012-2013 season with a ticket to European competition for the first time in over 20 years. Those added matches to their schedule stretched their squad thin though, and with their superstar from 2012-2013, Michu, missing a huge chunk of last season, the Swans found themselves at times in the middle of the campaign lingering just above the relegation zone. They managed to advance from the Group Stage in the Europa League but bowed out in the Round of 32 to Napoli , so they were left with a damaged side that now needed to focus on getting their mojo back in the PL. This led to a managerial change. Despite a new boss however, the Swans improved only just and it had very little to do with Michu, who was ineffective after returning from injury. The star of last season was the signing of Wilfried Bony , who developed into a top class striker with 16 league goals (25 in total) and carried the club to some results that helped steer them closer back to a mid-table finish. Swansea are once again the only Welsh side in the top flight, after a one year cameo by Cardiff City went south. So will the Swans continue to fly South or is a Renaissance in Wales on tap? Let’s see- Manager The managerial change referred to above occurred back in February when Michael Laudrup was dismissed and Swansea promoted from within as veteran center back Garry Monk, who was still an active player upon his hiring, was given the position, though there was little he could do from a personnel standpoint, as the January window had closed and he could only act more as a caretaker. Now, with a bit of tactical seasoning under his belt, Monk has made some significant changes to his roster this summer, all of which will be discussed below.

New Zealands central bank last year required loans for more than 80 percent of a propertys value to account for less than 10 percent of a banks new lending. In response, home sales fell 11 percent between October and March, the bank said in May. Global Measures The Bank of England last month proposed capping mortgages of 4.5 times a borrowers income at no more than 15 percent of a lenders new home loans, and required banks to reject those who fail a new repayment test. Governor Mark Carney in May called surging home prices the No. 1 risk to the economy, and Deputy Governor Jon Cunliffe this month warned low borrowing costs hide the real extent of Britons mortgage burden. Denmarks central bank is pushing to require interest-only loans to be no more than 60 percent of a propertys value, from 80 percent. In Sweden , lenders are in talks to require borrowers to cut mortgage debt to less than 70 percent of home values, and have capped borrowing at five times household income. More Stretched Across Australia, the average mortgage is at least four times pretax annual income in more than 2,200 postal codes out of a total 2,800, according to Digital Finance Analytics. Loan-to-income ratios are spread between 2.5 times and 8 times, compared with 0 and 6 times in the U.K., the data show.

Australian Regulators Watch as Debt Drives Up Prices: Mortgages – Bloomberg
Two creditors, Financial Guaranty and Syncora Corp., have argued strenuously that a sale of museum assets would net far more than the $816 million grand bargain worked out by the museum, foundations and the state, and which was just approved by city government pensioners. The grand bargain was designed both to protect the art from sale, and minimize cuts to city retiree benefits. One New York art-world financier, Asher Edelman of Art Assure, said he was unfamiliar with Wiener or VWA, but called the new figure perfectly possible. Edelman added that in terms of what the art could fetch at auction, The devil is in the details that is, whether or not the collection were sold all at once, flooding the market and diminishing returns, or spaced out over a number of years. Museum officials could not be reached on Saturday for comment. According to the report, Wiener served for 20 years as the executive director of the Appraisers Association of America. His online biography says he was also director of fine arts for Christie’s in Rome. The report also says Wiener was an expert witness in several high-profile art cases including matters concerning the estates of Andy Warhol and Louise Nevelson, and litigation concerning two of the most important works by Damien Hirst. The VWA appraisal, conducted with the help of 11 experts in various fields, anticipates that the collection would be used as collateral for a loan to the city, not sold. This echoes one of five proposals for monetizing the collection put forward by Christies Appraisals when it issued its report in December. That assessment, which only looked at 2,800 works, or about five percent of the museums collection, put the value between $454 million and $867 million. VWA, like Artvest, considered the entire DIA collection, both on display and in storage. Because of the compressed time period in which the VWA report was prepared, however, no actual inspection of art by experts took place.

Boulder, Broomfield, Weld commercial deals: July 28, 2014 – Boulder Daily Camera
Yesterday, activist investor Bill Ackman gave the “most important presentation of his career,” regarding his short position on Herbalife. During Ackman’s presentation, Herbalife shares rallied. If you were long shares of Puma Biotechnology before last night’s close, your position is now worth almost 3 times as much. If you were short shares of Herbalife ahead of yesterday’s open, your holdings are now worth almost 20% less. On Twitter, Dan Davies made this point even more succinctly. @TheStalwart that’s what biotech investment is all about … also NB this is three times as much as Pershing’s best case scenario in HLF Dan Davies (@dsquareddigest) July 23, 2014 (This is all oversimplified, of course. Investors will have an “average cost basis,” which depends on exactly what price they bought stock at in the past, not to mention broker fees, advisor fees, and so on. There are probably very few if any people who bought Puma for the first time at $60 yesterday and sold it at $230 today. If you did, take vacation.
