At The Movies: The Personal History Of David Copperfield, Deliver Us From Evil, I’m Livin’ It, and more, Entertainment News & Top Stories

dhita yudha


The infectiously joyful The Personal History Of David Copperfield offers a rare combination of factors: beautiful dialogue spoken by good actors; editing that makes the two-hour film feel like 60 minutes; and a storytelling style that feels modern and meta while staying true to – and sincerely in love with – its source material.

The work comes from British film-maker Armando Iannucci, best known for acid-etched portraits of political figures (BBC series The Thick Of It, 2005 to 2012; HBO series Veep, 2012 to 2015). But when he is not making parodies of politics or society, he is also a Dickensophile, having written and presented a documentary on the English writer in 2012, Armando’s Tale Of Charles Dickens.

“The true Dickensian world is our world,” says Iannucci in the documentary (available on YouTube). And to that end, he has cast British-Indian actor Dev Patel

dhita yudha

The pace of business bankruptcy filings in the U.S. slowed significantly in August from previous months, though chapter 11 filings were up from last year as the coronavirus pandemic continued to roil the economy.

A total of 525 businesses filed for chapter 11 protection from creditors in August, down 18% from 642 businesses in July but up 17% from August 2019, according to legal-services firm Epiq Systems Inc.


The numbers reflect continued distress in retail, energy, entertainment, and travel and leisure, Epiq said, based on data from its Aacer business unit.

In the first eight months of this year, chapter 11 filings rose 28% to about 4,800.

“Large corporations are benefiting from robust capital market activity which is providing access to capital at an attractive cost,” said Deirdre

Goldman Sachs: These 3 Stocks Are Poised to Surge by at Least 50%

Is it time for the bears to break out the champagne glasses? Not so fast, says Goldman Sachs. Volatility has ruled the Street for the last few weeks, leading some to conclude that those with a more pessimistic outlook had been vindicated, but the firm believes stocks can still climb higher.According to Goldman Sachs’ head of U.S. equity strategy, David Kostin, the S&P 500 could still hit 3,600 by the end of the year, and 3,800 by mid-2021, on the back of vaccine-related optimism and progress with the economic reopening. This would reflect gains of 10% and 16%, respectively, should the index ultimately reach these targets.“Despite the sharp sell-off in the past week, we remain optimistic about the path of the U.S. equity market in coming months.

TD, CIBC close out better-than-expected quarter for Canadian banks; outlook uncertain

dhita yudha

TORONTO (Reuters) – Toronto-Dominion Bank TD.TO and Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce CM.TO beat analyst expectations for third-quarter profit on Thursday as strong earnings growth in their capital markets businesses helped offset weakness in almost every other unit.

The results close out a reporting season that saw all but one of Canada’s six major banks beat expectations, as conservative provisions in the prior quarter and a jump in trading revenues helped limit the hit from the coronavirus pandemic.

Even so, the banks warned of an uncertain environment ahead as government assistance and loan deferral programs wind down in the fourth quarter. While they anticipate an increase in delinquencies as a result, the lenders said the allowances they have built up should cover an increase in bad loans, as long as current economic assumptions hold.

Shares of TD, Canada’s second-largest lender, rose 0.9% to C$66.97 in Toronto, while CIBC shares climbed

By Scott Murdoch and Patturaja Murugaboopathy

HONG KONG/BENGALURU (Reuters) – Indian companies have raised a record $31 billion in equity capital in 2020, Refinitiv data showed, as banks strengthen their balance sheets to prepare for future economic uncertainty and corporates tap into the elevated global liquidity levels.

The record raising comes despite India’s economy contracting 23.9% in the June-quarter, year on year, which puts it on track for the first annual contraction since 1980.

The rush of deals though has not been extended to initial public offerings (IPOs), which have fallen to a five-year low to be worth just $1.5 billion, in the eight months year to date, the data showed.

Black developers in NYC often face hurdles in obtaining capital to get their projects off the ground

dhita yudha

The Black developers Crain’s interviewed all agree the federal and state governments can provide greater incentives for institutional investors to provide Black businesses with necessary capital. But the greater, more substantive changes must come from the institutional investors themselves, in how they hire and what they aim to do with their money.

One guiding light can be found at Goldman Sachs’ Urban Investment Group. Led by Margaret Anadu, one of the few Black American women in finance, the fund manages a $4 billion portfolio and invests $1.5 billion each year.

Marshall first tapped Anadu’s Urban Investment Group for $20 million in 2007. Since then his firm has been able to source $1 billion from her team.

“We raised $10 million from a family office, but I don’t think we’d have the trajectory we’ve experienced without Margaret Anadu’s Urban Investment Group,” Marshall said. “It would’ve been quite difficult, quite frankly.”
