Investors are getting picky

first_img KCS-content Sunday 13 February 2011 11:14 pm whatsapp LET’S face it; for most of the rally off the 2009 lows, equity investors could have got a decent return from buying just about any mainstream index. It’s been pretty much one-way traffic and even the most inept of investors could be sitting pretty on a big double-digit return. But is the going about to get a lot tougher?To recap, the S&P is up circa 95 per cent from March 2009, the Euro Stoxx 50 is up 22 per cent ahead of its twelve month low and our very own FTSE 100 has gone up 16 per cent in the last 52 weeks. So far, so good – but the current earnings season may be proving that the time to be a little more stock specific could be upon us.This past week has seen a whole host of disappointments for the market: from Cisco to Air France-KLM, from Nokia to L’Oreal. In the UK, Diageo fell last week as sales missed taregts on the back of the economic woes of Greece, Spain and Ireland.So are the wheels falling off the earnings story? The answer, by and large, is a resounding “no”. If, for example, you look at the US reporting season so far, 71 per cent of companies have beaten forecasts, according to Capital IQ, a market analytics research group. Capital IQ says this is being led by a strong performance from the financial sector. In fact, virtually no sector is showing a net miss on numbers. The problem appears to be an asymmetrical response from the market when looking at beats compared with misses. UBS strategist Nick Nelson pointed out to me last week that companies beating expectations in Europe are being rewarded with a 3.06 per cent rise in their share prices on average on the day or reporting. However, companies missing are being hit by an average 5.43 per cent fall. The conclusion is clear – investors are getting fussier. They want more bang for their buck.In its most recent report on the European earnings season so far, UBS reports: “We are now approaching halfway through the season, and the developing trend has been of consensus expectations catching up with the early positive reporting, leading net reporting to nearer to in-line.”Nelson believes though that the top line growth story for companies remains strong, but it is the capex increases coming through to the bottom line that are hurting for some companies. Higher costs are materialising for companies across the board but it is the ability, or lack of ability, to pass them on to the consumer that is the key. The nearer you are to the consumer, then the harder it is to pass on price increases. That, at least, is how the logic goes.So while it’s not exactly the moment to call time on the equity market rally of the past two years, with much of the easy money now well and truly in the price, it is undoubtedly time to return to good old – and tricky – stock picking. How inconvenient for most of us.Steve Sedgwick is a presenter on Squawk Box Europe each weekday morning on CNBC. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”Wanderoam Share whatsapp Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ Investors are getting picky last_img read more

Football Pools launches full sportsbook service for first time

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 5th October 2018 | By contenteditor Tags: Mobile Football Pools launches full sportsbook service for first time The Football Pools is targeting a whole new generation of customers after adding a full sportsbook to its offering for the first time.The famous operator, which was founded in 1923, has launched its FSB-powered platform this week, adding a full portfolio of sports markets along with casino, live casino and its classic pools games.The enhancement to its service comes after London private equity firm OpCapita bought what was The New Football Pools brand from Sportech via its FP Acquisition division last year for £83m. The Football Pools, the world’s oldest football gaming company, was created when Littlewoods and Vernons Pools combined in 2008.Since last year’s acquisition the company – “one of the most trusted and respected names in football betting” according to FSB’s Richard Thorp – has been considering how to attract the mobile betting and gaming generation, and conducted extensive research and testing ahead of this week’s launch.“We’ve been working diligently to grow the business digitally, creating new content for new audiences while also remaining true to our heritage,” Football Pools CEO Derek Lloyd told“In short, we’re reimagining and reinvigorating The Pools for the modern customer, not only better serving our loyal client base, but also appealing to a fresh one.“Sports betting is obviously central to this changing landscape, so we were certain that we had to branch into a domain which speaks directly to consumer demand.”The FSB platform will integrate the core Classic Pools football score prediction game as well as products such as ‘Footie5’, a free-to-play, five-match predictor game “specifically designed to attract and engage a football loving, betting-savvy audience”.Lloyd explained that the company has opened its ears to its customers who have been crying out for an expanded service beyond football for some time.He added: “Sports betting was never previously incorporated amongst our portfolio, despite our customers telling us they wanted to play with us. Now we’re taking the opportunity to give play to their enthusiasms across a selection of their preferred sports.”While Lloyd said that The Football Pools for now is focusing on its mobile offering, new games and “unrivalled” service, he added that the company was keen to work with a partner whose tech would allow it to enhance the product further in the coming years.“We are coming back to the Great British public with an offering that is going to be more relevant to people who like to play with mobile devices,” he told“FSB’s sportsbook solution allows us to do all this, and evolve the complexity of our offering over time anytime we see fit. Therefore, The Football Pools now runs off an engine which can go through the gears as our customers’ needs require.” Tech & innovationcenter_img Iconic firm seeks ‘relevance’ in UK market following mobile-first overhaul Topics: Tech & innovation AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Addresslast_img read more

We certainly could not pass by a discussion of the World Cup legacy. We look forward to continuing to work together with FIFA and other stakeholders. It is our duty to make football truly inclusive for LGBT+ persons both in Russia and globally.”FIFA this year had introduced a new protocol to handle incidents of discrimination. Personal involved in the anti-discrimination drive were given extensive training.Earlier, FIFA had underlined the commitment to promote diversity and anti-discrimination in football during the opening ceremony of the new football festival that was organised by the Russian LGBT Sport Federation during the ongoing World Cup.Founded in 2010 as a non-governmental and non-profit organisation, the Russian LGBT Sport Federation had used the World Cup as an opportunity to raise awareness about diversity, inclusivity and anti-discrimination issues by running the festival from 15 June to 15 July.

There are only a handful of companies on the market that I’d consider owning for a decade or more. The Vodafone (LSE: VOD) share price falls into this basket. The business has most of the characteristics I look for when considering a buy-and-forget investment. The qualities are relatively straightforward. I want to own companies with a powerful brand, robust cash flows and an international presence. I also like to hold corporations with strong balance sheets. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Vodafone ticks all of these boxes, apart from the last one. The company’s balance sheet is loaded with debt. However, after the planned spin-off of its European tower business (Vantage Towers), debt should fall dramatically. And when that happens, the firm should meet all of the criteria I look for in a buy-and-forget investment. Attractive qualities of the Vodafone share priceVodafone has come into its own this year. The telecommunications giant has provided a vital service for millions of people across Europe throughout the pandemic. Over the past decade, the company has spent tens of billions of euros upgrading its network across the continent. This investment has paid off. Vodafone has been able to offer its customers an uninterrupted high-speed service in 2020. New customers have flocked to the business as a result. Vodafone reported 65m European mobile contract customers at the end of the first half of its 2021 financial year. That was up from 63.8m in the prior period. The number of customers using the company’s African networks hit 84.5m up from 81.2m. Moreover, mobile contract customer loyalty improved year-on-year for the eighth successive quarter. These numbers suggest to me the business has built a strong customer base, which should help it drive growth in the years ahead. That’s good news for investors. The more customers Vodafone has using its networks, the higher the company’s return on invested capital. Growth potentialBased on the above, I’m optimistic about the outlook for the Vodafone share price. With customer numbers expanding, the group’s profits should grow in the years ahead. That should help support the dividend payout. The stock already supports a market-leading dividend yield of around 7%. Payout cover has increased to 1.5 times. This suggests to me the distribution is well-covered and is unlikely to be reduced by management. As such, I’m considering adding this income stock to my portfolio today. After several years of standing still, the company finally looks as if it’s returned to growth. This could lead to large total returns for investors in the years ahead.And even if the Vodafone share price goes nowhere for the next 10 years, investors will be paid to wait. The dividend should provide a 7% annual return for the foreseeable future, even if earnings stagnate. All in all, I think I should be able to achieve large profits over the next decade by owning this stock.  See all posts by Rupert Hargreaveslast_img read more

British and Irish Lions fans arriving in Australia by the thousands

first_imgFriday Jun 21, 2013 British and Irish Lions fans arriving in Australia by the thousands British and Irish Lions fans have been flocking to Australia for the series, and of course the first Test which takes place in Brisbane this weekend. Fox Sports’ Sean Maloney caught up with a whole lot of them in Sydney ahead of the clash with the Waratahs. Thousands of fans are expected at the opening Test at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday, aiming to replicate some of the famous scenes from the Gabba in 2001.“At that level you never really get intimidated by a crowd, but it was such a massive shock to see the crowd that night,” says former Wallaby Daniel Herbert, who played 12 years ago. “Nothing prepared us for that sea of red. To be enveloped by noise from the other team’s supporters was like nothing I had ever seen before. It lifted the Lions to a whole new level.”Fellow centre Tim Horan has said that they need the Wallaby supporters to lift their game and do what they can to drown out the vocal travelling Lions.“Colour is the key. The Lions taught us that in 2001,” said the 1999 World Cup winner. “We need our fans to wear as much gold as they can and stand shoulder to shoulder to support our boys.”The Australian Rugby Union have advised fans to wear green and gold clothing, and they are also giving away 15 000 gold hunting caps on the night. Impromptu renditions of Waltzing Matilda are also expected in an attempt to silence the passionate Lions fans, who will no doubt account for more than just the 8000 allotted tickets in the 52 000 seater stadium.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error British & Irish Lions 2013 Related Articles 235 WEEKS AGO Warren Gatland confirms British & Irish Lions… 399 WEEKS AGO Brian O’Driscoll’s incredible skill at training… 413 WEEKS AGO Montage of Amazing Lions Test series in Australia,… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Two-year jail terms for three leaders of journalists union

first_img News February 1, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Egypt Less press freedom than ever in Egypt, 10 years after revolution to go further EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abuses News Organisation January 22, 2021 Find out more November 23, 2016 Two-year jail terms for three leaders of journalists union Receive email alerts Head of Syndicate Yahia Qalash in early May – MOHAMED EL-SHAHED / AFP center_img Help by sharing this information February 6, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the government’s continuing harassment of Egypt’s Journalists Syndicate, three of whose leaders were given two-year jail sentences on 19 November for allegedly harbouring two journalists at its headquarters last May who were wanted by the authorities. The three are Yahya Qalash, the Syndicate’s president, Gamal Abd El-Raheem, its secretary-general, and Khaled El-Balshy, the head of its freedoms committee, who is also the editor of the newspaper Al Bedaiah. They did not attend the hearing at which they were sentenced but they decided to appeal. The court has allowed them to stay out of jail pending the outcome of the appeal on bail of 10,000 Egyptian pounds (530 euros). The first appeal hearing has been scheduled for 25 December. “The situation of journalists in Egypt is not improving,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “These unprecedented prison sentences for key figures in the Journalists Syndicate suggest an ever darker future for the media in this country. We call on the authorities to free all journalists who are being held just for doing their job.” The three union leaders were convicted of harbouring two journalists with the opposition website Yanair, Mahmoud Saqqa and Amr Badr, who staged a sit-in inside the union’s headquarters and who were arrested when police stormed it on 1 May. Accused of spreading false rumours about Egypt’s decision to return two small islands, Tiran and Sanafir, to Saudi Arabia and inciting protests against President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s government in April, Saqqa and Badr were released provisionally in August and September respectively. Another hearing was held on 19 November in the case with more than 700 defendants who were arrested then police dispersed a mass sit-in in Cairo’s Rabaa Al-Adawiya Square in August 2013. They include Mahmoud Abou Zeid, a photojournalist also known as Shawkan, whose lawyers reiterated a request for his release on medical grounds because he has hepatitis C. The next hearing is scheduled for 10 December. On 21 October, the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention said it regarded Abou Zeid’s detention as arbitrary and called for his immediate release. On 20 November, a judge ordered the provisional release of Ismail Alexandrani – a journalist specializing in the Sinai and one of the nominees for this year’s RSF Press Freedom Prize – who has been held since November 2015 on charges of spreading false information and being a member of the banned Muslim Brotherhood. However, Alexandrani’s release was blocked when a prosecutor filed an appeal against the release order and the court accepted the appeal. His detention has been extended for another 45 days. Two journalists pardoned Two journalists were among the 82 detainees who were given a presidential pardon on 17 November. One is Islam al-Behairy, a presenter on Al-Kahera wal Nas, a privately-owned TV channel, who was arrested in December 2015 and was given a one-year sentence on a blasphemy charge. The other is Mohamed Ali Salah, a photographer for the opposition news website El-Shaab el-Jadeed, who was arrested while covering a student demonstration at Al-Azhar University, in the east Cairo district of Nasr City, in December 2013. He was sentenced to three years in prison on various charges including spreading false information and participating in an illegal demonstration. Egypt is ranked 158th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

first_img Twitter Local NewsBusiness Facebook Pinterest Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – February 8, 2021 WhatsApp Global Patient Controlled Injectors Market Forecast to 2027 – COVID-19 Impact and Analysis – ResearchAndMarkets.comcenter_img DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 8, 2021– The “Patient Controlled Injectors Market Forecast to 2027 – COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis by Product; Application; Distribution Channel, and Geography” report has been added to’s offering. According to this report the global patient controlled injectors market is expected to reach $2,969.47 million by 2027 from $7,505.70 million in 2019. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 12.4% from 2020 to 2027. The report highlights trends prevailing in the global patient controlled injectors market and the factors driving market along with those that act as hindrances. Based on product, the global patient controlled injectors market is segmented into electronic wearable injector, mechanical wearable injector, and infusion pumps.

Factors such as increased patient population, shortage of healthcare resources, and ease of increased the adoption of injectors had positive impact on the market by certain extent. However, implementation of physical distancing policies and total shut down of businesses in order to prevent the viral infection disrupted the supply chain operations, which caused a negative impact on the market growth.

Chaly & M.R. Anitha made various other observations while hearing a batch of petitions filed for purposes of issues surrounding Indian stranded abroad due to the lockdown.The Court also took note of the detailed report filed on behalf of the State Government in line with steps taken for cross-border evacuation of citizens stranded Abroad as well as the Standard Operating Procedure (SOPs) issued by the Centre for the said purpose.”it is clear that an action plan is prepared by the Government of India to repatriate the expatriates stranded in foreign countries consequent to the closure of the Indian Airports employing non-scheduled aircrafts and the ships belonging to the Indian Navy. The SOP issued by the Government of India would also make it clear that strict guidelines are issued by the Government of India with respect to the protocol to be followed by the expatriates and the respective State Governments” – Bench In light of the above, bench directed that as the GOI had derived a plan for expatriation of Indian Citizens only for the period between May 7 to May 13 as on date, plans for repatriation of the registered expatriates must be made. The Court also directed that the a statement in this regard also be submitted before the bench.Further to this, the issue of conflict between the SOP issued by the Central and State Governments with regard to quarantine (post completion of evacuation) also came up, wherein the Court considered it appropriate that the Petition(s) be taken up again for further statements of the Central and State Governments on May 12.It is also noteworthy to point out that the bench also took up the issue of the Fundamental Rights envisaged in the Constitution with respect to Article 19(1)(e) and reasonable restrictions laid down under clauses (5) and (6).Apropos, this the bench stated that even though the freedom of movement to reach the territory of India cannot be curbed by the State “ordinarily” and “normally” and that “Article 21 of the Constitution of India guarantees the citizens’ personal liberty to travel abroad and return to India”, it was concious of all the commotions that have occured to the emergent situtations that have arisen due to the pandemic.”We are also hopeful and confident that all possible steps would be taken hereafter also to alleviate their grievances, and further that the Centre and the State would work in tandem to achieve the aim of repatriation and the consequential actions” – BenchWith respect to the issue of deficiency in providing medical facilities to expatriates, the Central Government’s submissions were taken on record by the bench. These included facilities for transportation to hospitals, access to medical amenities as well as coordination with concerned authorities for purposes of securing necessary registration towards repatriation.Click Here To Download OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
