Northern Rock , which was nationalised after nearly collapsing during the credit crisis, said the size of the transaction was expected to represent around two per cent of its £18.6bn balance sheet – implying it could be worth roughly £370m. The retail and mortgage bank added that the cash raised would help diversify its funding base. Northern Rock was nationalised three years ago after becoming the first major British bank in more than 150 years to suffer a bank run. The government has long been keen on returning the bank to the private sector, since selling Northern Rock would raise cash to cut the UK deficit and analysts consider an eventual sale likely.

FDJ smashes records thanks to World Cup glory

first_img Regions: Europe Western Europe France French gaming giant Française des Jeux (FDJ) will not be privatised until at least next year the company has confirmed as it announced record sports betting and digital takings boosted by France’s FIFA World Cup win.As it released its H1 results, FDJ said it took €333m ($390m) in bets over the course of the World Cup, which was up 75% on the 2014 tournament, and well above the conservative pre-tournament estimate of €200m, as punters warmed to France’s triumph in Russia. FDJ’s total was just less than half the €690m in total bets made in France during the tournament, according to new industry-wide figures released by Arjel.The France-Croatia final itself generated €67m across the sector, according to Arjel, with FDJ’s €32m a record for bets on a single match.FDJ said in a trading update: “These good results are explained by the extraordinary career of the Blues [national team], by the efforts of the company in terms of supply, accessibility and listing, as well as by the influx of French [punters] in the bar-tobacco-press following the games.”FDJ said that in the six months to June 30 – so just half way through the World Cup – digital bets amounted to €1.2bn, up more than 54%. They made up 15% of total bets, which is still some way short of the company’s goal of reaching 20% by 2020.In total the company brought in €7.9bn in the first six months of the year up 5.3% on last year. €1.6bn in sports betting takings was up by almost 25%.By the time France come to defend their World Cup title in 2022, FDJ – which is part state-owned – could well be a private entity. Last June, a draft law was introduced which set out plans to sell off at least some of the government’s 72% share.Speaking about the future of the company, CEO Stéphane Pallez told AFP that parliamentary debates lasting until at least the end of this year mean there will be no progress until 2019.Pallez said that the proposed sale would offer an opportunity for the company to “remain one of the leaders in the sector. You need to be able to continue to grow, especially internationally.”She added: “Having open capital can be an opportunity to involve partners. If the state decided to quote the company, it could also be an opportunity to have an offer to the general public, but that is only one of the options.”Meanwhile, FDJ will be a more visible presence in French football next season after it announced partnerships with Lyon, Monaco and Nantes. It also agreed a deal with Marseille last month, with the four partnerships following a previous agreement with the Professional Football League (LFP). Future looks bright for French gambling giant, but CEO says privatisation won’t come any time soon  FDJ smashes records thanks to World Cup glory Finance Topics: Finance Sports bettingcenter_img 20th July 2018 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Addresslast_img read more

Imperial Brands shares have rebounded. Here’s why I think they can keep rising

The share price of Imperial Brands (LSE: IMB) has been trending down for what seems like an eternity. Since rising above 4,000p in mid-August 2016, shares in the tobacco manufacturer have just gone down…and down…and down.Yet recently, the FTSE 100 stock has shown signs of a recovery. Since I covered IMB on 13 December, it has risen more than 10%. Can the shares keep rising? I believe so. Here are three reasons why.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…Shift towards valueValue stocks such as Imperial Brands have been out of favour for a long time now. However, just recently, there have been signs that value could be making a comeback.For example, in the final quarter of 2019, the S&P 500 value index outperformed the S&P 500 growth index by more than 1.5 percentage points (9.93% vs 8.32%). With many growth stocks now trading at lofty valuations, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this shift towards value continue. “Ignore value at your peril,” says John Linehan, chief investment officer of equities at T Rowe Price Group.Given that Imperial Brands currently trades on a forward-looking P/E ratio of an incredibly low 7.2 (less than half the FTSE 100 median of 15.6), I think it could benefit if investors continue to focus on value.Sentiment towards tobaccoWhile the tobacco sector remains out of favour for a number of reasons, I have seen a small improvement in sentiment recently. For example, just yesterday, analysts at JP Morgan said that they see further upside for big tobacco due to the “sustainability of earnings and cash.” They lifted their price target for Imperial Brands to 2,100p from 1,900p – an increase of 10.5%.Similarly, after the US Food and Drug Administration recently exempted menthol and tobacco from a list of popular e-cigarette flavours that it banned under its new guidelines, analysts at Jefferies said: “We are actually bullish on implications of this final guidance.” So not everyone hates the tobacco sector at the moment. Insiders are still buyingFinally, it’s also worth pointing out that insiders continue to buy here. In November, I noted that Imperial’s group innovation and science director David Newns had spent £1.4m on the stock, following purchases from outgoing CEO Alison Cooper, CFO Oliver Tant, and chairman Mark Williamson in September.Since then, a number of other top directors have loaded up on the shares, including strategy director Amal Pramanik (10,000 shares) and senior independent non-executive director Sue Clark (5,000) shares. When company insiders are spending a large amount of their own money on stock, it’s generally a good sign.RisksOf course, I won’t deny that there are plenty of risks to the investment case here. Sustainability is likely to become more of a focus for investors in the years ahead and regulatory pressure is also likely to remain intense.However, when you consider the stock’s absurdly low valuation and its huge dividend yield, and the fact that the company remains cash generative and highly profitable, the risk/reward proposition looks favourable, in my view.

Plenty of stocks have seen share price falls due to the global pandemic this year. But some stocks have seen outperformance against a benchmark index such as the FTSE 100. For investors, there are two main ways to play this. Either you can jump on the bandwagon and buy a firm that’s already rallying higher. Or you can buy into a firm that’s struggling (and has a low share price) in the hope of a turnaround. If you’re interested in the Tullow Oil (LSE: TLW) share price, the latter definitely applies!Before we dig into the reasoning behind buying Tullow at present, it’s worth reminding ourselves of two things. Firstly, that our aim as good investors is to generate profits, and substantial ones at that. It’s not unreasonable or impossible to aspire to make a million from investments over time. Secondly, with the aim of making a million, we need somewhere to house the profits. That is why I use a Stocks and Shares ISA, with an annually resetting allocation. This allows investors to buy and hold stocks without having to pay large capital gains tax on profits when selling a share.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…The story so farThe Tullow Oil share price has been falling since late last year. The company announced several production cuts, as a result of new oil fields being found to be too high in sulphur content to be viable. As a result of this, free cash flow was downgraded as well. In the middle of last year it was forecast at around $450m, and by the end of last year this was reduced to $150m.Add into this a recent dividend suspension and resignation of the CEO and exploration director, and you can see why the share price was at multi-decade lows even before the pandemic. As with most firms, Covid-19 dealt a further blow to the share price. This was compounded by falling oil prices.The turnaround of the decade?But from a historically low share price, there are some green shots appearing. For example, Tullow confirmed the sale of a project in Uganda to another firm for $575m in late April. These funds will be used to reduce debt as part of a larger $1bn fundraising plan to support the balance sheet. This is positive in both the short and longer term for the share price. Not only does it help liquidity now, but it also reduces expensive debt interest payments going forward.In the Q1 trading update, it was noted that the average oil price Tullow got was $56 per barrel. The actual oil price was far below this, but the hedging and derivatives the firm used protected it from the fall. Again, this shows to me that the management team at Tullow is being smart in terms of strategy and thinking.I think Tullow could be a millionaire-maker given the green shoots were are seeing and the historically low share price. With a £20,000 ISA allocation each year for the next 10 years, a return to the 12-month share price highs in the long term would be enough to secure millionaire status. But it’s risky and so not for everyone. More risk-averse investors may want to see further signs of stabilisation before taking the plunge.

Designed as a single floor dwelling, this house is a luxurious sprawl in the lap of a natural surrounding. The house is responsive to the series of palm trees that existed before and essentially orients itself towards it. It is designed to be inclusive of the natural elements- the sun, earth, water, air and fragments of the blue sky. The layout segregates through a level difference, the parent’s and son’s living units and yet unites through a meeting place, which is the more open central bay. It’s a linear organization that separates the front street side from the rear garden and gives the garden a sense of privacy. From the garden side it’s a low stretch of a horizontal formation, parallel to the line of the ground.Save this picture!© Vishal Solanki / Radhika PanditThe house is basically a three bay organization with the first bay towards the street that forms the parents, guest and kids bedrooms, the central which forms the transition areas the living area and rear court, while the last bay towards the garden is master bedroom, sitting area, the formal drawing and dining area.Save this picture!© Vishal Solanki / Radhika PanditThe front yard is stark having cement and sand finished base that matches with stark exposed concrete walls and complemented by white walls. The flooring of internal spaces is Italian marble while the semi open verandah and courts have brown river finished kotah stone.

Are U.S. nuclear missiles returning to Europe?

first_imgU.S. nuclear missiles to threaten Russia, Europe?Published Nov. 17 in the Italian daily newspaper, Il Manifesto, where Dinucci analyzes military developments. Translation by John Catalinotto.More than five years ago we published a headline in the [June 9, 2015] issue of Il Manifesto: “Are the missiles coming back to Comiso?” This hypothesis was ignored by all the political parties in parliament from left to right, and dismissed by self-styled experts as “alarmist.” The alarm, unfortunately, was on target. [Comiso is a town in Sicily where the Italian anti-war movement waged a struggle against a cruise missile base in the early 1980s.]This Nov. 6, Lockheed Martin (the same corporation that produces the F-35s) signed an initial $340-million contract with the U.S. Army to produce medium range missiles, capable of carrying nuclear warheads, designed to be installed in Europe.The missiles of this category (based on land with a range between 500 and 5,500 kilometers) were prohibited by the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, signed in 1987 by Presidents Gorbachev and Reagan. The INF had eliminated the Pershing 2 nuclear ballistic missiles, deployed by the United States in West Germany, and the Tomahawk nuclear cruise missiles, deployed by the United States in Italy (in Comiso), Great Britain, West Germany, Belgium and Holland, and at the same time the SS-20 ballistic missiles deployed by the Soviet Union on its territory.In 2014, without offering any proof, the Obama administration accused Russia of having tested a cruise missile (initials 9M729) of the category prohibited by the INF Treaty and, in 2015, announced that “faced with the violation of the INF Treaty by Russia, the United States is considering the deployment in Europe of ground-based missiles.”The policy then passed to the Trump administration, which in 2019 decided to withdraw the United States from the INF Treaty, accusing Russia of “deliberately violating” it. After several missile tests, Lockheed Martin was commissioned to build a cruise missile derived from the Tomahawk and a ballistic missile derived from Raytheon’s SM-6.According to the contract, the two missiles will be operational in 2023. That means they will be ready to be installed in Europe in two years.The geographical factor must be taken into account: While a U.S. medium-range nuclear ballistic missile, launched from Europe, can hit Moscow within a few minutes, a similar missile launched from Russia can hit European capitals — but not Washington. Reversing the scenario, it is as if Russia were deploying medium-range nuclear missiles in Mexico.According to Raytheon, the SM-6 performs the function of “three missiles in one”: anti-aircraft, anti-missile and attack. The nuclear missile derived from the SM-6 can therefore be used by both ships and ground installations of the U.S. “shield” in Europe, whose launch tubes, according to Lockheed Martin, can launch “missiles for all missions.”In an Oct. 26, 2020, statement, Russian President Vladimir Putin reaffirmed the validity of the INF Treaty, calling the U.S. withdrawal a “serious mistake” and affirming Russia’s commitment not to deploy similar missiles unless the U.S. deploys theirs close to Russian territory.Putin therefore proposes to NATO countries a “mutual moratorium” and “reciprocal verification measures,” i.e., inspections of each other’s missile installations. The Russian proposal has been ignored by NATO, whose Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg reiterated on Nov. 10 that “in such an uncertain world, nuclear weapons continue to play a vital role in the preservation of peace.”No voice has been raised by European governments and parliaments, even though Europe risks being at the front line of a nuclear confrontation similar to or more dangerous than that of the Cold War. But this is not the threat of the COVID and therefore no one is speaking about it.The European Union, in which 21 of the 27 members are part of NATO, has already made its voice heard when, in 2018, it rejected at the United Nations the resolution presented by Russia on “Preservation and Observance of the INF Treaty,” giving a green light to the installation of new U.S. nuclear missiles in Europe.Will anything change once Joe Biden takes office in the White House? Or, after Democrat Obama opened the new nuclear confrontation with Russia and Republican Trump has aggravated it by shredding the INF Treaty, will Democrat Biden (formerly Obama’s vice president) sign onto the installation of new U.S. nuclear missiles in Europe?FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
