    Consumers could get up to $20,000 apiece in Equifax settlement — how to get your share

    Two years after Equifax revealed that hackers accessed the personal information of up to 147 million people, the credit bureau's newly-announced settlement for up to $700 million will provide cash payments for those who have been affected — but there are some key requirements people should be aware of before they file a claim. Under the terms of the settlement announced Monday, the major credit bureau is paying a mix of government fines, legal fees and, most importantly for consumers, setting up a fund that will underwrite free credit monitoring, identity theft protection and individual cash payments to people affected by the breach, which are capped at $20,000 per person. Some 147 million American consumers had their personal information stolen, according to the class-action lawsuit being settled in the deal.

    Has NetEase, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTES) Improved Earnings Growth In Recent Times?

    After reading NetEase, Inc.'s (NASDAQ:NTES) most recent earnings announcement (31 March 2019), I found it useful to look back at how the company has performed in the past and compare this against the latest numbers. However, this one-year growth rate has been lower than its average earnings growth rate over the past 5 years of 12%, indicating the rate at which NTES is growing has slowed down. In terms of returns from investment, NetEase has fallen short of achieving a 20% return on equity (ROE), recording 15% instead.

    Here's the next disaster in retail. Hint: it's not J.C. Penney dying

    Thanks to shoppers spending cautiously on clothes in recent months — despite a rallying stock market and low 3.7% unemployment rate — retailers of all kinds are sitting on mountains of excess inventory. Now that inventory must be worked off at profit-margin-busting prices in order to make way for the lucrative, full-price garb targeted to back to school shoppers in August and September. That backdrop sets the stage for scores of earnings misses, lowered profit outlooks and downtrodden earnings calls with Wall Street when the retail sector begins to release results in mid-August.

    3 Things to Watch When Yamana Gold Reports Q2 Earnings

    Expectations regarding expenses Reporting all-in sustaining costs (AISC) of $930 per gold equivalent ounce (GEO) for the first quarter, Yamana entered the second quarter on track to meet its 2019 AISC per GEO forecast of $920 to $960. In addition to confirming that the company, overall, remains likely to meet that forecast, investors can monitor how well its individual mines fared during the second quarter. In particular, attention should be paid to the company's two assets located in Chile, El Penon and Minera Florida, which reported Q1 AISC per GEO of $1,081 and $1,208, respectively -- both of which were higher than their 2019 guidance: $1,050 for El Penon and $990 for Minera Florida.
