    Barclays Four 'hid payments to Qatar to stop bank looking weak', court told

    The former boss of Barclays kept payments to Qatar hidden to avoid the bank looking “weak” and potentially putting off other investors during the 2008 global financial crisis, a court heard on Wednesday. Top Barclays bankers made secret payments to Qatar in exchange for £4 billion to stave off the “dire” consequences of a government bail-out, Southwark crown court heard today in the long-anticipated trial of four former top executives. The executives at the “very top” of the banking giant believed the independence of Barclays was “in jeopardy” when it agreed to pay £322 million of fees which were hidden from the market, it is said.

After running a screen on more than three dozen pot stocks, Wall Street expects all but two to head higher, as is indicated by a higher consensus price target than the current share price for these stocks.

    Analysts Estimate Electro Scientific Industries (ESIO) to Report a Decline in Earnings: What to Look Out for

    The Zacks Earnings ESP compares the Most Accurate Estimate to the Zacks Consensus Estimate for the quarter; the Most Accurate Estimate is a version of the Zacks Consensus whose definition is subject to change. The idea here is that analysts revising their estimates right before an earnings release have the latest information, which could potentially be more accurate than what they and others contributing to the consensus had predicted earlier. Thus, a positive or negative Earnings ESP reading theoretically indicates the likely deviation of the actual earnings from the consensus estimate.
