We believe that this will ensure that GDP growth remains positive in the fourth quarter of 2010, albeit at a slower pace than in the third quarter. “With manufacturing output now expanding faster than services and total GDP for four consecutive quarters, we may at last be seeing the much-needed rebalancing of the economy.” Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Codere to investigate LatAm financial inconsistencies

first_img Email Address Tags: OTB and Betting Shops Slot Machines 8th October 2019 | By Daniel O’Boyle Topics: Casino & games Finance People Bingo Slots Codere has launched an investigation into inconsistencies in the financial reports of some of its Latin American subsidiaries for the first half of the year, which the operator has warned may reduce its full-year earnings by up to €20m.  Codere has launched an investigation into inconsistencies in the financial reports of some of its Latin American subsidiaries for the first half of the year, which the operator has warned may reduce its full-year earnings by up to €20m (£17.9m/$22.0m).A preliminary investigation has revealed that these unnamed subsidiaries may have overstated their reported results by between €13m and €18m, which would ultimately have an effect on its full-year earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation.However, Codere added, it had not yet detected any additional impact on its liquidity position, nor had any inappropirate cash outflows been uncovered.“[This] is believed to be an isolated incident that only affects the numbers of the year in these markets,” the company said.An “independent and highly regarded” external advisor will conduct the investigation, the results of which Codere said “will be informed through the appropriate channels.”In September, Codere saw its net loss for the first half of 2019 fall by 78% for H1, despite political uncertainty in Argentina — Codere’s largest market in 2018 — leading to a 36.4% fall in EBITDA in the country.The company’s total EBITDA was €165m, of which €114.6m came from Latin America. Of the company’s Latin American EBITDA, €34.1m came from Argentina, €61.6m from Mexico, €5.8m from Panama, €10m from Uruguay and €3.1m from Colombia.The company previously projected full-year EBITDA of between €280m and €290m, meaning the new expected figure would be in the range of €260m to €270m.In unrelated news, Codere also announced the resignation of director Alberto Manzanares Secades.The company’s announcement of his resignation quoted a portion of Manzanares’s resignation letter, in which he states the resignation was for “strictly personal reasons, mainly due to the difficulty of reconciling the dedication required by his position as a proprietary director of Codere with his other professional obligations.”Manzanares also works as a senior associate at law firm Ashurst, a counsel in the corporate and finance area for law firm Ontier and is a professor of law at Madrid University and at IE Law School in Madrid.

Stock market crash: I’d buy these 2 cheap FTSE 100 shares to retire early

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Peter Stephens | Wednesday, 22nd April, 2020 | More on: MRW PSN Image source: Getty Images. Peter Stephens owns shares of Morrisons and Persimmon. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The FTSE 100’s market crash means that many large-cap shares now trade on low valuations. Although their prices could fall further in the near term if economic challenges continue to be high, over the long run they may offer recovery potential.With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 stocks that appear to offer wide margins of safety at the present time. Buying them now and holding them over the long run could lead to high returns that improve your prospects of retiring early.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…PersimmonThe UK’s lockdown means that housebuilder Persimmon (LSE: PSN) has closed all of its sales offices. They look set to remain shut over the coming weeks. And this is likely to cause a significant decline in the company’s financial performance in the short run.Investors appear to have factored-in a difficult period for the business. The company’s share price has declined by 28% since the start of the year. This suggests that it offers a wide margin of safety, and may have recovery potential in the long run.Looking ahead, Persimmon could benefit from a supportive monetary policy. Low interest rates may make housing more affordable to a wider range of consumers, which could support rising demand for properties at a time when supply shortage is set to continue.Clearly, there is uncertainty regarding when the UK will exit its lockdown. However, it has a solid balance sheet that includes a cash balance of £610m and the company has cancelled its latest return of capital. So it seems to be in a relatively strong position to overcome its present challenges. As such, buying it today and holding over the long run could produce high returns for investors.MorrisonsAnother FTSE 100 share that offers long-term total return potential is Morrisons (LSE: MRW). The retailer’s shares are down by around 7% since the turn of the year, and could produce a successful turnaround in the coming years.Clearly, recent weeks have been a period of intense change for the supermarket sector. This trend could continue over the long term, with measures such as social distancing likely to exacerbate the shift from in-store purchases to online delivery.Morrisons’ recent results showed that it is making progress in enhancing its delivery service. For example, it has extended its service so that it now covers around 90% of the UK population. It is also ramping-up click & collect services at many of its stores as consumers’ shopping habits continue to change.The company is on track to meet its target of £1bn annual wholesale revenue. This could provide it with a robust growth opportunity over the long run that catalyses its sales and profitability. As such, now could be the right time to buy a slice of the business, despite it currently experiencing unprecedented operating conditions.center_img Stock market crash: I’d buy these 2 cheap FTSE 100 shares to retire early Enter Your Email Address Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Vodafone shares: 4 reasons why I’m not buying

first_img As 2020 draws to a close, I am looking at potential UK companies to add to my portfolio. Vodafone (LSE: VOD) shares are on my radar but I am not convinced about investing in the stock. Here’s four reasons why I am not buying yet.#1 – Mountain of debtAt time of writing, Vodafone has a market cap of £34bn. Recent results highlighted that its net debt amounts to €44bn (approximately £40bn), which exceeds the market value of the company.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…As an investor, this does not make sense to me. I don’t like the idea of buying Vodafone shares when I know that huge mountain of debt will take so much time to pay down. The management team has implemented a cost cutting programme and is improving its customer focus to tackle the leverage on the balance sheet.#2 – Vantage TowersVodafone is spinning off its Vantage Towers business through an initial public offering (IPO) in early 2021. The proceeds from this stock listing will be used to help pay down the debt position and possibly pay a bumper dividend to investors.I am not getting sucked in Vodafone’s prospects of paying a special dividend. Vantage Towers is Vodafone’s European tower infrastructure business. It is a network of ground-based and roof-top towers across key locations. I believe the sale will mean that the company is losing an attractive asset, as Vantage Towers’s revenue is inflation-linked.The requirement for data as well as the roll-out for 5G technology means that the growth potential for Vantage Towers is huge. While the FTSE 100 company will continue to be Vantage Tower’s tenant, the remaining business will be much smaller and debt laden. The remaining prospects for Vodafone shares do not sound appealing to me.#3 – Liberty GlobalIn July 2019 the mobile operator completed its acquisition of Liberty Global’s assets in Germany and Central Eastern Europe. While the deal added to Vodafone’s debt burden, it was part of its convergence strategy, whereby it can sell multiple services to customers.Germany is Vodafone’s largest market be revenue. By cross-selling mobile, broadband, and television services in this region, the customer retention will improve. But this does not prevent Vodafone’s competitors copying the strategy if it proves to be a winner.While the convergence strategy makes sense to me, the benefits are likely to take time to manifest and is unlikely to reduce the debt in the short term.#4 – Dividend payerVodafone has a history of paying large dividends that are not covered by earnings. In May 2019, it reduce its dividend by 40% in order to preserve cash and pay down debt.The Vantage Towers IPO could result in a special dividend. But I think future dividend cuts could be in the pipeline especially when earnings do not cover the payment.My viewDespite Vodafone investing billions in the mobile spectrum, there is not much differentiating the company from its competitors. Customers typically just go with the cheapest deal, which could impact the telecom provider’s revenue and thus the security of its dividend.In summary, the strategy and changes make sense to me but I am sceptical Vodafone shares can thrive from here. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Vodafone shares: 4 reasons why I’m not buying Nadia Yaqub | Wednesday, 23rd December, 2020 | More on: VOD Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Jonathan Durley, community development officer for Llandaff Diocese, said the church had a responsibility to ensure those in power were fully aware of the extent of the poverty it was seeing.He said, “Social need changes on a daily basis initiated by the impact of closures of projects and services, redundancy and subsequent unemployment, which to illustrate from some of our experiences, may impact on families who may not be able to feed their children before and after school due to loss of income and available finance, even for essential such as food.“We have a prophetic responsibility to ensure those who hold political and statutory power in our communities are able to hear the voice of those we walk with. We need to ensure such power holders remain informed of the changes we see and the gaps in the services we witness.”Durley warned that poverty was not just about lack of money but also people’s dignity and that was being affected by government policies. He said, “Poverty is not necessarily solely financial, but also includes social, emotional and physical. Through the extensive network of initiatives within parishes and the wider diocese we are confronted by the serious life diminishing issues which are manifest through concrete images of individuals, families and communities experiencing increasingly uncertain futures.“This dimension of ministry in our church works to oppose attitudes and policies which fail to respect the Christian understanding of the nature and dignity of people, whether they are general social attitude, government policies concerning the impositions of sanction on those receiving benefits, mandatory detention of asylum seekers; or policies of the Church concerning justice and God’s preference for the poor and those who experience exclusion and marginalization.”The Governing Body heard about examples in which local churches are stepping in to help their communities. Each of its six dioceses have social responsibility officers who help develop initiatives, such as family centers, in partnership with communities. Local churches are helping to run night shelters for homeless people, job clubs, debt centers, soup kitchens, library services and food banks, while rural life advisers are providing much needed pastoral support in areas facing increased isolation due to cuts in transport services or poor communication networks.Durley called on local churches to have regular contact with local councillors, local Assembly Ministers and Members of Parliament, inviting them to events and consultations. He asked, “With the General Election looming fast and Welsh Government elections next year, are we encouraging our neighbors to use their democratic right to vote or holding their candidates to account about their policy?”The Governing Body members voted in favor of a motion to “call upon the Welsh Government to do all that it can to minimize the impact of poverty, austerity and recession on the people of Wales”. The motion on poverty also welcomed the Churches’ Mutual Credit Union, which was launched earlier this year, the Church’s progress towards becoming a Fair Trade Province and its revised ethical investment policy.The Governing Body, made up of 144 clergy and lay people from across Wales, met at the Pavilion, Llandrindod Wells, on April 15-16.

The neighbor continues: “It’s totally different than the standard industrial buildings you see here. It takes some getting used to, but it is special and nice. ” Save this picture!plan 01 The building houses a warehouse, with an extensive range of machinery for the (re) building of electric boats. An indoor exhibition space where the boats floats in water.And an office space. These three functions have been given their own character, both in morphology as in appearance. Save this picture!© Sebastiaan Jansen The black volume, which seems to float over a full glass exhibition space, created by interplay be-tween context and sustainability. The rotation angle in the plot can be read at the base, while the upper surface focuses the sun. This creates a sculptural architectural gesture with a nod in the front elevation. The roof which faces south, creates a surface that is suitable for processing PV cells. On the cor-ner volume 72 solar panels are fitted (about 91m ²). These panels provide approximately 11,072 kWh each year, which allows recharging 1385 electric boat. Besides solar panels, there are plenty of sustainable solutions applied. Rainwater is collected in a tank. With this water boats are washed and the toilets are flushed. For heating and cooling of the building a earth mouth linked heating heat pump (HCS) is installed. The cradle to cradle concept is reflected in the design and materialization of the building. In the assembly of the building, where possible, there are mechanical connections chosen. Furthermore, there are materials used in its purest form. Only a few materials have a finish in the form of paint-ing.
