* Graphic: World FX rates in 2020 https://tmsnrt.rs/2RBWI5E * Dollar grinds lower against many currencies * Improving risk appetite draws funds from dollar * Traders closely monitoring moves in yuan By Stanley White TOKYO, Nov 26 (Reuters) - The dollar was on the defensive on Thursday as downbeat U.S. economic data and optimism about coronavirus vaccines prompted investors to seek out riskier assets tied to global commodities and emerging markets. "A China-led recovery in the global economy and commodities should benefit commodities currencies," said Masafumi Yamamoto, chief currency strategist at Mizuho Securities in Tokyo. Investors have rushed to riskier currencies and emerging-market assets in recent weeks after positive data on COVID-19 vaccine efficacy and signs of stability in U.S. politics, which has weighed broadly on the dollar.
NEW YORK, Nov. 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of K12 Inc. (“K12” or the “Company”) (NYSE: LRN). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at email@example.com or 888-476-6529, ext. 7980. The investigation concerns whether K12 and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices. [Click here for information about joining the class action]K12 operates virtual learning systems. As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, school districts across the U.S. have increasingly shifted learning activities to online and blended instruction, creating a unique opportunity for K12 to acquire a significant stake in the rapidly growing market for online education. On August 26, 2020, reports began to surface that teachers in the Miami-Dade County school system were extremely unprepared for the new school year because they were unfamiliar with K12’s learning platform, and lacked “hands-on experience” and “adequate training for [K12’s online learning platform].” The United Teachers of Dade President Karla Hernandez-Mats issued a statement, in which she disclosed that the “the training for K12 has been ineffective and the time allotted to learn it has been unacceptable.” On this news, K12’s stock price fell $5.87 per share, or 13.5%, over the following two trading days, to close at $37.70 per share on August 27, 2020. After classes began, K12 experienced major technical issues and disruptions, with teachers and students of Miami-Dade County being unable to even log into the platform and utilize its contents, which prompted local officials to publicly scold K12 for being “not ready” for the opening of the school year. By the third day of classes, September 2, 2020, Miami-Dade County students and teachers reported numerous additional technical issues and a total of twelve intermittent cyberattacks that led to K12’s learning platform effectively being dysfunctional. In response to the ensuing complaints by parents, the Miami-Dade County School District called a Board meeting to discuss K12’s many failures. During the meeting, Miami-Dade County Public Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho disclosed that he never signed the $15.3 million no-bid contract with K12 and the school district had never paid K12 for the provision of its services and products. On this news, K12’s stock price fell $3.96 per share, or 10.2%, over the following two trading days, to close at $34.89 per share on September 3, 2020. The following week, after another Board meeting, the Miami-Date Public Schools Board voted to terminate its $15.3 million contract with K12 on September 10, 2020. On this news, K12’s stock price fell $3.21 per share, or 9.5%, to close at $30.55 per share on September 10, 2020. Meanwhile, the Beaufort County School District in South Carolina engaged K12 to provide virtual learning programs for their students. However, the introduction of the program had to be delayed until the second week of instruction. Shortly thereafter, a member of the Beaufort County School District board John Dowling stated that he had lost confidence in K12’s ability to provide educational solutions for the district and moved to terminate the contract, which was duly terminated two days later. On this news, K12’s stock price fell $1.09 per share, or 3.9%, to close at $27.21 per share on September 18, 2020.The Pomerantz Firm, with offices in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Paris is acknowledged as one of the premier firms in the areas of corporate, securities, and antitrust class litigation.

Too many of Britain's companies use formulaic explanations about diversity, climate change policy and leadership that provide little detail for investors, the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) said on Thursday. The FRC supervises how companies comply with its Stewardship Code of governance best practice, requiring them to explain in a "clear and compelling" way if they choose to ignore some parts. "Unfortunately, some companies continue to treat the Code as a box-ticking exercise," the FRC said in a review.
Bird flu has been detected in a third Japanese prefecture, the agriculture ministry said, as a wave of infections at poultry farms sparks the country's worst outbreak in more than four years. Avian influenza was discovered at an egg farm in Awaji city in Hyogo prefecture west of Tokyo, which is near Kagawa prefecture where the first infections were discovered in poultry earlier this month, the ministry said on its website. The 146,000 chickens at the Hyogo farm will be slaughtered and buried, while movement in a 3 km (1.8 mile) radius around the farm will be restricted.
A Cambodian court on Thursday began hearing the cases of nearly 130 opponents and government critics charged with treason for taking part in nonviolent political activities over the past three years, in what one of them described as a sham trial. Most of those being tried by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court are former members or supporters of the Cambodia National Rescue Party. As the sole opposition party in Parliament, it had been expected to offer a strong challenge to Prime Minister Hun Sen’s ruling Cambodian People’s party in the 2018 general election.

Click CVID on the terminal for global data on coronavirus cases and deaths.Tokyo Joins Surge in Bond Sales to Fund Pandemic Relief (10:17 a.m. HK)The Tokyo Metropolitan Government plans to price a 60 billion yen bond ($575 million) Friday, with the proceeds used to offer small-to-mid sized companies long-term funding at low interest rates.Borrowers globally sold more than $100 billion of so-called social debt in the first 10 months of the year, much of it fueled by government demand for funds during the pandemic. This is the first such bond from a Japanese municipal government that specifies the money must be used exclusively to help with the pandemic, and comes as cases in Japan are hitting a record this month.Mexico Reports More than 10,000 New Cases (9:36 a.m. HK)Mexico reported 10,335 new Covid-19 cases Wednesday night, bringing the total to 1,070,487, according to data released by the Health Ministry.

The government also will impose a 50,000 ringgit ($12,240) fine per worker on employers that house foreign workers in crowded spaces.Hanmi Pharm Rises on Vaccine Manufacturing Report (8:57 a.m. HK)Shares rise as much as 11% after Maeil Business Newspaper reports the Korean company is in talks with global pharmaceutical firms to make genetic vaccines for Covid-19 on contract.

Korea Disease Control & Prevention Agency on Thursday reported 583 coronavirus infections in the past 24 hours, compared to 382 a day earlier.South Korea has raised the social-distancing alert level twice in the past two weeks, highlighting the challenge of containing the latest spread as the number of infections continues to rise. The country has been held up as a model for managing the virus spread without having to lock down or impose draconian measures after quelling two previous severe outbreaks in February and August.U.S. Considers Lifting European Entry Rules (5:26 p.m. NY)Several federal agencies have recommended that the White House lift an entry ban on non-U.S. citizens arriving from Europe put in place to slow the spread of Covid-19.The organizations, which participate in the White House Coronavirus Task Force, have signed off on lifting the restrictions, said two people who were briefed on the discussions.

It’s brought us pain and loss and frustration, and it has cost so many lives -- 260,000 Americans -- and counting,” he said in a speech in Wilmington, Delaware.Biden went on to draw an implicit contrast with President Donald Trump by calling for a different approach to combating Covid-19. “It has divided us. Angered us. And set us against one another,” he said. “I know the country has grown weary of the fight. But we need to remember we’re at war with a virus -- not with each other.”Germany Extends Curbs at Least Three Weeks (4 p.m. NY)Chancellor Angela Merkel extended a partial lockdown for at least three weeks, to just before Christmas.Europe’s largest economy tightened limits on private gatherings but kept schools and most businesses operating under a deal hashed out Wednesday by Merkel and the leaders of Germany’s 16 states. The restrictions -- slated to expire at the end of November -- will run until Dec. 20 and will likely be extended into January unless there’s an unexpectedly rapid decline in contagion rates.With infection rates surging, German officials this month ordered the closing of restaurants, gyms and cinemas.

Health Secretary Mark Ghaly warned Tuesday that hospitalizations and deaths, which trail infections by two to three weeks, are poised to surge further as cases accelerate.N.J. Changes Quarantine Policy (1:55 p.m. NY)New Jersey has stopped advising 14-day quarantines of visitors and residents returning from U.S. hot spots. The policy, started in June and put into effect by New York and Connecticut as well, relied on voluntary compliance. But as cases and positivity grew, all save for a few states landed on the list. By mid-October, New Jersey, amid its second wave, achieved the three states’ definition of a hot spot.Governor Phil Murphy said in a statement that New Jersey no longer will use “previously outlined metrics to inform its travel advisory.” The state continues to discourage non-essential travel and intends to issue a new policy, he said.New York on Nov. 4 started allowing people to test and isolate for just three days. Connecticut on Tuesday listed 48 states and territories still subject to the quarantine rule.France’s Pace of Cases Falls to 6-Week Low (1:50 p.m. NY)France registered 16,282 new Covid cases Wednesday, health authorities reported.

The total death from the virus rose by 168 to 12,840.Turkey’s opposition parties and medical associations have been criticizing the minister for portraying a rosy outlook and the government for prioritizing economic gains over lives. The change also came after the surge in new symptomatic “patients” more than doubled this week compared with the previous one, to a pace not seen since the early stages of the pandemic in Turkey.N.Y. Sees Most New Cases Since April (11:45 a.m. NY)New York state had 6,265 new coronavirus cases Tuesday, the highest since April 24, according to a briefing from Governor Andrew Cuomo.
