whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Sunday 12 December 2010 10:26 pm IMPERIAL TOBACCORBS rates the cigarette manufacturer a “buy” following the announcement of price increases. It notes that this should more than offset the impact of increased excise rates in Spain. Imperial’s profit pool should remain largely unchanged from FY10 and continued cost savings should allow the group to deliver marginal profit growth. The broker notes that its investment case remains intact and reiterates its £23.80 target price.AVOCET MININGEvolution Securities retains its rating of the gold mining company as “neutral”, with exploration in West Africa key. It notes that Avocet is worth less with the likely sale of southeast Asian assets and sets a target price of 225p/200p. But, the broker says that the potential success from the drilling programme next year could replace the company’s lost ounces.BAE SYSTEMSExecution Noble reiterates its “buy” rating, with shares falling by 19 per cent since October. BAE’s P/E discount versus the US peers has widened to 160 basis points. The broker says that recent beneficial moves in BAE’s pension discount rate, and the possibility of near term closing of the Platform Solutions disposal makes the discount excessive.

Casino & games Topics: Casino & games Finance People Sports betting Strategy GVC shareholders narrowly back remuneration report Email Address Tags: Mobile Online Gambling GVC Holdings has fended off a shareholder revolt over executive pay, with a narrow majority of shareholders backing the company’s 2018 remuneration report.Investors holding 58.04% of the operator’s share capital voted in favour of the remuneration report, with 41.96% voting against at the company’s 2019 Annual General Meeting (AGM). The results were an improvement on the 2018 AGM, which saw 43.94% of shareholders vote against the remuneration report.GVC remuneration committee chair Jane Anscombe said she was “naturally disappointed” with the results.“We engaged extensively with shareholders ahead of the annual general meeting and would like to thank them for their helpful and constructive input,” Anscombe said. “We understand that some shareholders ultimately felt unable to support the remuneration report, in part due to our legacy arrangements, which going forward no longer form part of our remuneration framework. Going forward, Anscombe said the operator would seek shareholders’ views on the company’s remuneration policy, which is up for renewal at the company’s 2020 AGM.GVC had come under pressure from shareholders critical of the sums paid to chief executive Kenny Alexander and chairman Lee Feldman in 2018, prompting fears of a revolt. Alexander’s £19.1m (€21.6m/$24.3m) pay packet was largely down to a £16.4m payment, awarded as part of the company’s long-term incentive plan set out following its 2016 acquisition of bwin.party.Long-serving chairman Lee Feldman was paid £8.5m, with the vast majority coming from the legacy incentive scheme.Late last month the chief executive, whose stewardship has transformed GVC from a minor industry player to one of the UK’s largest gambling businesses, volunteered to reduce his annual salary from £950,000 to £850,000, effective June 1.The pair were also criticised after selling off shares in March, with Alexander selling 2.06m shares worth £13.7m and Feldman offloading 900,000 shares worth £6.0m. This saw GVC’s share price fall 14% in a day, its biggest fall in almost a decade, to its lowest since July 2016. Alexander has since pledged not to sell off any further shares while he remains chief executive.Feldman, meanwhile, has announced that he will step down as chairman either at or before its 2020 AGM. This, GVC noted at the time, was unrelated to the share sale and instead due to the fact that UK governance guidelines stating that chairmen should not hold their role for more than 9 years. 5th June 2019 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Europe GVC Holdings has fended off a shareholder revolt over executive pay, with a small majority of shareholders backing the company’s 2018 remuneration report.
See all posts by Alan Oscroft I saw the election result in December, and I watched the stock market start to tick up in the following days. I really thought the period of cheap Brexit-depressed shares was coming to an end.But then PM Boris Johnson launched his bombshell and committed us to a do-or-die trade negotiation timescale. If we don’t get a deal signed by the end of December 2020, we could be plunged into chaos after all.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…In recent days our EU trading partners have been making it clear just how unrealistic the PM’s target might be.Toughening stanceThere have been two developments that I think should shake naive optimists out of any complacency.French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian has warned that he sees a tough battle between the EU and the UK in the upcoming trade negotiations. He’s suggested the two sides could be set to “rip each other apart” in the struggle. Perhaps unnecessarily, he went on to add that he thought getting a deal by the end of the year would be tough.In another move, EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier has cast doubt on the UK’s plans. He appears to have scuppered the hopes of the UK’s chief negotiator, David Frost, who has called for a “Canada-Free Trade Agreement-type relationship.” Barnier reckons our “particular proximity” means things will have to be different. Oh, and just as a reminder, it took a full seven years to hammer out the Canada agreement.InvestmentThe FTSE 100 has been showing the same pessimism. Since a post-election peak on 17 January, it’s fallen 3%. That might not seem a lot, but it means the index has gained only 5.5% over the past two years. And it’s a far cry from the bullish recovery I was expecting to see in early 2020.Still, if the government hard line should dump us into recession in 2021, at least I reckon that could provide us with even better share buying opportunities. But you might ask, does it make sense to invest in UK shares at a time when the UK economy might be heading for recession?Well, if you buy shares in UK-focused companies, maybe it is a bit of a risk. As an example, I have some Lloyds Banking Group shares, and Lloyds has refocused itself as a UK retail bank. I expect Lloyds shares to suffer in any economic downturn.GlobalBut, even though all the companies in the FTSE 100 are registered in the UK, very few actually do much of their business here. Look at the biggest of all, Royal Dutch Shell. It’s a big international oil company, it generates cash worldwide, and it pays juicy dividends. Even if the UK economy completely disappeared from the world stage, Royal Dutch Shell’ profits should still be fine.What about the next biggest ones? Unilever, Astrazeneca, HSBC… they’re all multinationals and largely immune to the British economy. But in the face of continuing Brexit uncertainty, I expect them all to remain weak. And in the event of a no-deal departure, I see them suffering along with the whole index.Those are the kinds of stocks I think will offer continued, and even improving, buying opportunities. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Alan Oscroft | Friday, 21st February, 2020 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

The competition aimed to generate fresh perspectives on the issues of gender equality, social mobility, community resilience, food security, and social housing & wellbeing.More than 100 teams from across the UK entered with six finalists awarded for their contributions. Finalist projects included a critical review of the UK’s approach to honour based crime, an exploration of social mobility through intergenerational interviews in London’s Afro-Caribbean communities and a project outlining the consequences of ignoring the UK’s social housing crisis.The winner, 19-year-old law student Felicity Abraham (a pseudonym) from London, received £5,000 for her project on honour killings. The five runners-up were awarded mentoring and speaking opportunities at global conferences.Participants were judged on their ability to tell a compelling story that provided real insight and considered a social issue from different perspectives. There were no restrictions on the media each project could use and final submissions included documentaries, social media campaigns, photography, poetry and plays.The prize was judged by experts in cross-sector social change, with the awards designed to encourage participants to continue to focus on their project long term. Judges included Caroline Mason, CEO of the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, John Upton, Managing Director of Leon, Judith Grant, Associate Director of Health and Wellbeing at Mace Group, and Indy Johar, co-founder of Architecture00 and Dark Matter Labs.John Upton, Managing Director of Leon, said:“I was both privileged and humbled to be a judge for the Koreo Prize. The creativity, granularity and passion with which all of the finalists took on their challenge was amazing. Their output, both individually and collectively, made me realise just how positive we should be about the future, and how our next generation of young people can and will make a real difference to society.”Judith Grant, Associate Director of Health and Wellbeing at Mace Group, said: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 Melanie May | 9 February 2018 | News “The prize was an outstanding opportunity for young people to showcase their exceptional understanding of, and solutions to, the UK’s most pressing issues.“At only 19, Felicity Abraham has shown us where the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals can be developed further and how the UK can address this when outlining the national strategy to implement the goals by 2030.”The Koreo Prize is running again this year and is now open for entries with a focus on the UN Sustainable Development Goals at work for people of all ages. 191 total views, 1 views today Koreo Prize winners announced with competition back for 2018 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

MOD to donate thousands of Army ration packs AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 The Ministry of Defence is to donate thousands of Army ration packs via FareShare over the next few years, to help fight food poverty.Some 20,000 unused operational ration packs will be donated. The ration packs are enough to sustain ten soldiers for a 24 hour period, containing nutritionally balanced meals and providing 4,000 calories per individual – enough to sustain an active person over a 24-hour period. They include items for breakfast, lunch and dinner, such as porridge, sausages, baked beans, pasta and rice.The military will provide the packs to FareShare, which distributes food to nearly 10,000 UK charities.Minister for Defence People and Veterans Tobias Ellwood said:“Ration packs help provide nutritionally balanced meals to our armed forces on operations around the world. But charity begins at home, and I’m pleased our partnership with FareShare will make sure no food goes to waste. FareShare does a fantastic job redistributing food across the country and I’m proud the military can support communities in this way.”Mr Ellwood also said that the donation of ration packs would not be a one off, but something the MOD would do every year going forward, and that the Department was looking at how to make them as environmentally friendly as possible. 159 total views, 1 views today 160 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 Melanie May | 18 January 2019 | News Tagged with: Donated goods
Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Japan Enters TPP Talks Japan Enters TPP Talks Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter The Obama Administration last week agreed to accept Japan into the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade negotiations. Nebraska Senator Mike Johanns says this is great news for America’s ag producers – and he looks forward to building on progress with a Japan with a strong agreement that benefits the U.S. economy, farmers and workers. Of the 11 TPP countries – Japan already has free trade agreements with seven of them. Japan’s economy is second to China’s in the region and the fourth largest U.S. agricultural export market overall. Last year alone – U.S. food and ag exports to Japan totaled 13.5-billion dollars. The American Farm Bureau Federation is pleased with this decision to allow Japan into the TPP. National Pork Producers Council President Randy Spronk says the TPP is the single most important trade negotiation ever for U.S. pork and many other U.S. ag products with Japan on board.
