San Jose, California (PRWEB) July 24, 2014

Follow us on LinkedIn Level measurement represents a critical process in industries where fluids and fluidized-solids are handled. Chemical, petroleum refineries, petrochemical, and food and beverage industries among others, routinely perform level measurement in order to ensure reliability of manufacturing processes. Level sensors in this regard, help detect level of different fluids (including those in production or those produced as end-product) to prevent overflows. Besides process industries, level sensors are also used extensively in water and wastewater management where they find applications in measuring drinking water, sewage, raw water, brackish water, industrial effluent, and sea water desalination.

Demand for level sensors is primarily reliant on the health of industrial processing and manufacturing industry. Rising focus on water conservation and recycling and subsequent rise in water & wastewater management projects, and growing power sector investments are driving demand for level sensors. While growing demand for petroleum products fuels demand for level sensors in petroleum refineries, steady consumption of a range of chemicals and their increased production drives use of level sensors in the chemical industry. Increasing application of level sensors in the oil and gas industry for identification of leak detection and fuel loss, measuring cooling water flow level, hydraulic fluid flow level and process gas flow level, and measuring discharged water level for environmental compliance, is also benefiting market growth. Stringent regulations such as Wastewater Systems Effluent Regulations and Clean Water Act in Europe and the United States are fueling growth in the market. Technology developments and product enhancements that help expand application possibilities will spur opportunities for growth in the coming years. Sensor manufacturers are increasingly focusing on the development of new, miniature, electronic level sensors, featuring low power consumption and ease-of-use as primary benefits.

hows the government handling the housing market?

Query by iceshot1: hows the government handling the housing marketplace?

Ideal answer:

Answer by Baz
The US housing market place is in significant difficulty, far worse than in nearly any other developed nation. Since 2006, housing prices have fallen 30 to 40 percent in most areas millions now owe much more on their mortgages than their homes are worth, and millions a lot more have only slivers of equity. The typical homeowner today has 7 % equity in his or her home, versus 45 % as recently as 1990. The private housing finance program has virtually disappeared, and the government system that remains is pursuing the identical policies that created the current troubles. The affordable housing targets imposed on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in 1992 have been the major contributors to each the deterioration in underwriting standards between 1992 and 2008 and the development of an unprecedented ten-year housing bubble that suppressed delinquencies and stimulated the development of a private securitization marketplace for subprime loans. But other government policies are also to blame for the deterioration in the US housing marketplace, such as the thirty-year fixed-rate mortgage, the mortgage interest tax deduction, the appropriate to refinance with out penalty, and the Community Reinvestment Act. Until Fannie and Freddie’s industry dominance and the government’s role in the housing finance system are substantially decreased or eliminated, the United States will continue to have an inferior and unstable housing market.

Q&A: Explain the two main causes of market failure and give an example of each?

Question by zaar: Explain the two main causes of market failure and give an example of each?

Best answer:

Answer by LucaPacioli1492
One kind is the divorce of market prices from reality: sometimes called “irrational exuberance.” These occasion asset “bubbles” of various kinds that have occurred throughout history. The Dutch Tulip bubble of the 1630s, as do many, envisaged the continual, monotonic increase in the price of tulip bulbs. The fundamental idea that tulips represented an attractive future market ( Holland’s present market for tulips is larger than the total trade in tulips during Tulipomania ) but the prices outstripped any reasonable valuation. More to the point of similarity with other bubbles, the use of credit, leverage and new financial instruments ( such as options contracts, futures, etc. ) allowed unbridled buying that would have been less had it been limited to cash deals. Stock market crashes that are more familiar are 1929, the tech bubble of 2001 and the recent one starting in Summer 2008. The latter was initiated by the asset bubble in housing and, most importantly, the credit expansion that fueled it ( both the low interest rates artificially maintained too long by the Fed, the artificial stimulation provided by government through the Community Reinvestment Act and the provision of unsound credit through the sub-prime (meaning “bad risk”) lending fostered by the CRA. The invention of new financial instruments followed the historical pattern with mortgaged-backed securities ( combined with irrational ratings from agencies ) adding to the innovation of securitization to allow other financial markets to be tapped and the mortgage pool to be reloaded.

Another kind of market failure is when there just isn’t enough liquidity to sustain transactions ( usually where, as a consequence, the bid-asked spread becomes impossibly large.) A recent example of this is the market for “Auction-rate Preferreds” where seven-day paper was touted widely for almost 20 years as an alternative to money-market funds until February 2008 when the auctions failed and those backing these markets just withdrew and the whole market froze into illiquidity.

Can someone explain Wall Street, market capitalization, company equity, *stock exchange & more?

Question by KAI: Can someone explain Wall Street, market capitalization, company equity, *stock exchange & more?
I’m really stupid, and would like to know.

was unsure of what section to put this in, sorry.

Best answer:

Answer by juicebox
wall street: a financial district in New York, home of various stock exchanges, like the New York Stock Exchange. It’s essentially the financial center of the world.
Market Capitalization: the number of shares a company has multiplied by their market price. So if a company had 1,000,000 shares at 5$ each, it’s market capitalization would be $ 5,000,000. A share is basically a security that represents ownership in a company.
Company Equity: the assets of a company minus its liabilities. Assets are anything that generate revenue for a firm or increase its value, like plant equipment, cash, inventory, and accounts receivable (accounts receivable is very simply “money owed to a company by its debtors”. An example would be when you purchase a car. You don’t normally pay the whole thing up front; you enter a plan where you make monthly payments to pay it off). Liabilities are financial obligations a company has. So this means, in the future they will have to spend revenue to meet those obligations. An example would be a company that has financed itself through bonds which are debt instruments.
Stock Exchange: a stock exchange is the market for securities and equity derivatives trading (the trading of company shares, equity derivates: search options and futures).
Search “equity financing investopedia” or “share investopedia” and there will be a more clear and comprehensive definition with articles that will give you a walk through. Investopedia is actually the best site for finance and economics; it has articles and definitions for introductory financial and economic concepts all the way up to the more complex ones like derivatives, securitization and hedging. Sorry if this wasn’t any help

What is the private-label securitization market ?

Question by nomethinks: What is the private-label securitization market ?
I have the idea that it is where private investors hold bonds backed by subprime mortgages (in the past, now); I want to know, what is the expanse of the private label sec market? That is to say, what other assets and such can be included in this beyond subprime loans (if any)?

Thanks in advance- I really appreciate all the people who devote time to educate others on Yahoo! Answers.

Secretary Henry M. Paulson, Jr.
Statement on Covered Bond Best Practices

Washington – Good afternoon. Thank you all for coming today. Joining me on stage are FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair, Federal Reserve Governor Kevin Warsh, OCC Comptroller John Dugan and OTS Director John Reich. We also welcome representatives from Bank of America, Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase, and Wells Fargo. I will make a few remarks, my colleagues will also address you and then Jeff Brown with Bank of America will speak.

As we are all aware, the availability of affordable mortgage financing is essential to turning the corner on the current housing correction. And so we have been looking broadly for ways to increase the availability and lower the cost of mortgage financing to accelerate the return of normal home buying and refinancing activity.

The housing government-sponsored enterprises, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Home Loan Banks, and the Federal Housing Administration are funding more than 70 percent of residential mortgages during these months of market stress. They must continue to be active here.

At the same time, private-label securitization, another important source of mortgage finance, has become severely strained and credit conditions have tightened. In addition to securitization done by housing GSEs, private mortgage-backed securitization benefits the American consumer and our markets. The private-label market will evolve in response to current challenges, and I expect it to return with greater risk-awareness and investor discipline. We also believe it is useful to explore additional mortgage financing options to complement more traditional funding models.

One option we have looked at extensively is covered bonds, which are a $ 3 trillion market used widely in Europe for mortgage funding. I believe covered bonds have the potential to increase mortgage financing, improve underwriting standards, and strengthen U.S. financial institutions by providing a new funding source that will diversify their overall portfolio.

Treasury has been working with our regulatory counterparts to look at ways to support the emergence of the covered bond market in the United States. We consulted with our European counterparts, including the UK Treasury. We also spoke with potential U.S. market participants, including issuers, investors, underwriters and ratings agencies. While many European countries have dedicated covered bond legislation, the U.S. regulatory environment is different. Covered bonds are a promising financing vehicle and we believe this market can grow in the United States absent federal legislative action.

To help achieve our goal of broader choices in mortgage finance, today Treasury is publishing a Best Practices guide for U.S. residential covered bonds. This document is intended to outline practices that will promote covered bond market simplicity and homogeneity, using high quality mortgages as collateral. It is a starting point and complements the FDIC final policy statement of July 15th.

I appreciate the FDIC’s strong leadership in advocating covered bonds and providing clarity to potential investors. Together, the FDIC final policy statement and a Treasury Best Practices guide should give market participants the tools to build a market that will benefit U.S. families and the U.S. economy. A U.S. covered bond market also will present new opportunities for further international investment in the United States.

We knew that this initiative would be successful only if the largest banks paved the way. And so I welcome the announcement by America’s four largest banks, Bank of America, Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo, that they intend to establish covered bond programs and kick-start this market in the United States. And, I am also pleased to know that the two existing domestic issuers of covered bonds intend to align their programs with these new practices.

We applaud these banks for their leadership and for recognizing an opportunity to help increase mortgage funding availability and strengthen our financial system. We are at the early stages of what should be a promising path, where the nascent U.S. covered bond market can grow and provide a new source of mortgage financing.

Covered bonds are simply one tool for mortgage financing and will not, alone, complete the housing correction. We will continue to pursue our efforts to avoid preventable foreclosures and to speed, without impeding, the necessary course of this housing correction. Thank you and now

The earliest securitized transactions date back to the early
1970s and were the sales of pooled mortgage loans by the
Government National Mortgage Association ( Ginnie Mae).
These transactions were followed by the Federal Home Loan
Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) and Federal National
Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) in the early 1980s. These
new securities were backed by full faith and credit of the
respective agencies which were either government agencies
(Ginnie Mae) or quasi-government agencies (Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac). Because of such backing and guaranties, these
securities (also known as single-class mortgage pass-throughs)
carried an implied “AAA” credit rating. However, the capital
markets were looking for more technological innovations to
satisfy their investors. They were looking for diverse “maturity
” mortgage product which gave rise to the concept of
collateralized mortgage obligations (multiclass mortgage pass
throughs, CMOs or MBS) soon to be followed by asset-backed
securities (ABS). Some of these securities have managed to
become among the most exotic securities on the street.
Today, the total outstanding issuance of CMOs, MBS and ABS
has reached a staggering level of over two trillion dollars. The
non-agency or private label multiclass mortgage-backed passthrough
market originated in response to an increased
demand for low credit risk mortgage-backed securities with
diverse cashflow and maturity characteristics. The difference
between agency and private label transactions is as follows: in
the case of agency transactions, the underlying single-class
mortgage pass-through pools are government or quasigovernment
obligations and, therefore, the credit risk of such
pools is retained by these agencies and is negligible to the
investors, and in the case of private label transactions, the risk
of the underlying mortgage loans is fully transferred to the
“willing” investors as described below.
Ginnie Mae
The primary purpose of establishing Ginnie Mae was to
fund the government-sponsored residential mortgages
originated by various lenders by creating an active
secondary mortgage market. Unlike Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac, Ginnie Mae does not purchase mortgages
from lenders.
The credit risk is relatively higher in the private label market
because the losses on the mortgage loans must be absorbed
directly by the investors. Unlike agency transactions, there is
no guarantee of timely or eventual payment of either principal
or interest to such investors. For investors, analysis of relative
priority of cashflows as well as the credit risk of the underlying
mortgage loans take a significant role in the private label
The success of securitization in the mortgage market and the
acceptance of new securities by the investors has lent application
of this concept to other assets such as credit cards, auto
loans, leases and many others. The primary focus here is to
deal with the concept of securitization in the context of some of
the other commonly securitized assets. We will assess the
needs of financial institutions and industrial firms to apply this
technology to create a source of funding for themselves.
Fixed income or derivative?
MBS/ABS are considered “fixed-income” securities as well as
“derivative” securities. “Fixed-income” pertains to the fact that
MBS/ABS generate a coupon income (not necessarily a fixed
dollar amount) periodically whereas “derivative” refers to
MBS/ABS being “carved or derived” out of an underlying pool
of assets. Unlike other fixed income securities such as corporate
bonds, MBS/ABS are fairly complex instruments to
analyze. As mentioned above, MBS/ABS are structured to
satisfy the “risk,” “return” and “maturity” characteristics of
different investors. Imagine an upward-sloping yield curve
vertically cut out into small slices where each slice represents a
“tranche” or a “class” in an MBS/ABS. Each “tranche” has a
different priority of payment of interest and principal. This
priority of payment is what makes MBS/ABS somewhat difficult
to analyze.
All “agency” securitizations are implicitly “AAA” rated and
therefore carry negligible credit risk, whereas, the privatelabel
market has produced multiclass mortgage pass-throughs
with ratings ranging from “AAA” to below investment grade.
Basic Analysis
In view of the fact that securitization technology has grown
tremendously not only domestically but also globally calls
for a better understanding of this technology. The basic
rule of thumb to understanding this innovative process is to
stick to the “basics!” “Information overload” can prevent
people from learning and understanding the benefits and
attributes of such technology. We will study some of the
0 10 20 30
attributes from both an issuer’s and investor’s perspective. We
will approach this process in two parts. First, we will determine
why securitization may be beneficial to some issuers; and
second, why investors may want to buy these securities.
• Why securitize? Issuer’s perspective.
• Why buy? Investor’s perspective.
Why Securitize? Issuer’s perspective.
Securitization offers several benefits to an issuer. Instead of
simply listing out the benefits, let’s take a methodical
approach to finding out
