CITY WELCOMES A DOSE OF FESTIVITY AND OPTIMISM

first_img Show Comments ▼ Thursday 28 October 2010 8:54 pm KCS-content whatsapp Tags: NULL “AN EVENING of festivity and optimism” was the way in which our editor Allister Heath introduced City A.M.’s inaugural awards ceremony last night, and the evening did not fail to live up to expectations.After years of gloom-mongering and banker-bashing, what better way to acknowledge the role of the City in bringing the economy back to life than to have the finest stars of the Square Mile gather at one of the most impressive new hotels in London – the Grange at St Paul’s – for an evening of good food, wine, catching up with friends old and new, and celebrating the finest the business world has to offer.Receiving the headline award – the personality of the year – in absentia was the ever-jovial Mayor of London Boris Johnson, who elicited the heartiest cheer of the evening when his prize was announced. “I’m so glad you agree with me, and I’m glad we are sticking up for financial services,” Boris told the gathered guests via a video link. “I will continue to do so as long as I am Mayor and as long as I have breath in my body.”WORTH FIGHTING FORSticking up for the financial services industry and wider business community happily became something of a theme for the evening, with former athlete-turned-politician Seb Coe joining in during his keynote speech.Coe thanked the industry for its help in securing the 2012 Olympics for London, admitting that there had been “a lot of pavement-pounding” on the part of the Olympic bid committee in order to achieve that end. “Thanks to the City for being willing to stick its head above the parapet and say, yes, this is worth fighting for,” he said, to cheers from the audience.Mind you, The Capitalist finds it hard to believe that the campaign was as difficult as Coe made out, if his anecdote about Russia’s bid is to be believed.“Moscow nearly blew its chances in the early days,” Coe joked. “The city’s strapline was “one girl, one night, one vote…”.Cheeky chappie.PARTY ANIMALSOf course, the aim of the evening was to relish the celebrations – and enjoy them our audience did, right down to the good-natured booing of less popular shortlisted candidates. Well, what else can you expect from a City audience? If the Financial Services Authority’s enforcement tsar Margaret Cole – a contender for the lawyer of the year award – hadn’t managed to elicit a few hearty jeers from those she’s supposed to be policing, she wouldn’t have done a very good job, now would she?Away from the actual awards, compered by TV presenter Katie Derham, guests were treated to music from a classical quartet of glamorous ladies, Raven, and a rock ‘n’roll performance from Berlin-based band The Baseballs. As City A.M. went to print last night, the hard-core among the attendees were still boogying away in the Grange’s own nightclub, so there’s bound to be a fair few sore heads in the City this morning.

The FTSE 100 crashes! Here’s how I’m going to profit

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Tom Rodgers | Tuesday, 10th March, 2020 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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. These are scary times for investors. Take a look at the FTSE 100 or any other stock market now and only one word comes to mind. Wow (and not in a good way). We’ve not only seen not red across the board, but also some of the largest and heaviest price plunges any of us have experienced in our investing lifetimes.As markets opened on Monday morning traders struggled to cope with the volume of panic selling.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…What happened?Over the weekend, two major oil exporting economies went to war. Russia denied an OPEC call to cut oil production. Vladimir Putin’s government is under heavy pressure because the country’s public spending is heavily tied to the price of oil. In response, Saudi Arabia threatened to flood the market with 2m more barrels per day at a massively discounted rate. The oil price fell by 25%. That’s its largest one-day drop since the start of the Gulf War in 1991.When that news hit the market on Monday, already shaken by the spread of the coronavirus, all hell broke loose.The FTSE 100 fell below 6,000 points for the first time since 2016, plummeting by 8.5%. By the end of the day, £125bn was wiped from the value of the UK’s 100 largest companies.The Dow Jones Industrial Average, a benchmark of the 30 largest US companies, fell by over 2,000 points to settle 7.5% lower, its largest single-day fall in years.Trading was suspended on Wall Street after indexes tumbled more than 7%, automatically halting trading for 15 minutes just minutes after the opening bell. For most investors this is uncharted territory.How to reactWhen share prices start to rebound, and they will, investors will see that this has been an incredible buying opportunity. Companies you previously thought attractive but unaffordable, perhaps at high P/E ratios, are as cheap as chips. And businesses with strong balance sheets that perhaps paid only a 3% to 4% dividend now pay 5% or 6%. As share prices fall, dividend yields rise.But I’m not buying immediately. I’m sitting in cash on the sidelines and watching, and waiting. The best 12 or so companies are on my watchlist and I’m monitoring their prices very closely.They include FTSE 100 giants with record profits, hefty capital surpluses and high yields like Aviva and Legal & General. You’ll get the dual opportunity here not only for strong dividends but also share price growth and capital appreciation.Also on my list are high-profit AIM-listed shares generating huge amounts of cash that will be helped by a general culture of people staying indoors. These include video game shares like Team17 that I’ve covered in detail elsewhere.Hold onNow isn’t the time to sell. Following the herd over the cliff will make you poorer in the long run.It’s never good to see the value of your portfolio go down. But even worse for your long-term financial health is to realise losses at the bottom or near the bottom of the market.If you’re an income investor focused on FTSE 100 high-yield dividend stocks and you sell in a panic, you undo all the work that compound interest has been doing for your money.But now isn’t the time to buy either, I feel. Volatility is at an all-time high, and there’s much further these markets could fall. Trust me. Keep calm, and carry on watching and waiting.

I think these FTSE 250 stocks could double your money

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Image source: Getty Images. Enter Your Email Address See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves The FTSE 250 has rebounded by over 35% since hitting a multi-year low of 13,000 in March. However, despite this performance, several shares in the index still appear to offer excellent value for money.These companies continue to face significant risks. For example, a second wave of coronavirus could cause another market slump. 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…Nevertheless, over the long run, these shares could offer improving total returns. With that in mind, here are two FTSE 250 stocks that may have the potential to double investors’ cash over the next few years when owned as part of a portfolio.FTSE 250 stocks on offerLockdown measures introduced over recent months have had a significant impact on the financial performance of FTSE 250 outsourcing group Capita (LSE: CPI). In its latest trading update, the company pulled its earnings projections for the year citing the coronavirus outbreak. However, the company isn’t as exposed as many other businesses. Around 50% of revenues come from the UK government, for which Capita runs a range of essential services. The group has also been winning new contracts over the past few months.  Management has taken salary cuts and staff have been furloughed to help cushion the impact of the outbreak on the firm’s bottom line. The FTSE 250 group expects these efforts will be enough to help see Capita through the crisis. As such, Capita seems well-placed to navigate the crisis and could come out stronger on the other side. Indeed, before coronavirus, it was making encouraging progress in delivering on its new strategy. The group’s reputation, size and diverse range of services mean it may offer long-term recovery potential after its 73% share price decline since the start of the year.ForterraAnother FTSE 250 company that could help double investors’ money is Forterra (LSE: FORT).A leading UK producer of manufactured masonry products, Forterra’s sales took a big it when the UK went into lockdown at the end of March. But, it has staged a rapid recovery as the economy has started to open up again. Its latest trading update reported that sales had recovered to 50% of corresponding 2019 levels in May. In April, sales had fallen a staggering 90% year-on-year. For the full-year, management is projecting a decline in sales of around 20%. Despite this, the overall share price performance of Forterra has been relatively underwhelming over the past two months. The FTSE 250 stock is only trading slightly above the level it was when the UK went into lockdown at the end of March. Therefore, now could be an excellent time to snap up a share in the business as its recovery takes shape. Even though the company is forecasting a decline in sales of only 20% for 2020, the stock has fallen 50% since mid-February.This suggests the shares offer a margin of safety after recent declines and could help investors double their money when owned alongside other undervalued FTSE 250 stocks like Capita.  Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned. 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. Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before!

Flyhalf Tom Takes the Stage in Toulon, with Jonny Wilkinson

first_imgWednesday Apr 18, 2012 Flyhalf Tom Takes the Stage in Toulon, with Jonny Wilkinson For the last decade Jonny Wilkinson has been one of the most recognisable players on the planet, and an idol to young flyhalfs the world over. One lucky guy was selected to not only meet him, but travel to Toulon and train with him too, thanks to Adidas.  Tom is a flyhalf who has idolised Wilkinson for many years, and after entering the Take The Stage campaign, was picked to travel to France for a one-on-one kicking session with the great man.“Jonny Wilkinson is probably one of the most famous rugby players in history. He changed flyhalfs, and the way people look at flyhalfs,” said Tom, who was whisked away to Toulon.As you’ll see in this great video, he took full advantage of the time he had over there, and not only learnt valuable lessons in technique, but also picked Jonny’s brain when he could.“This is where you do it. Without hard work, it’s definitely not possible,” said Wilkinson after being asked how he keeps his focus when having to take an important kick. “You have to have done a certain amount of repititions in your life, and gone through a certain amount of hard times, and learnt enough to be able to say sod it to 80 000 people, who may be booing you, and wishing that you’re going to miss.“You earn the right to win, and to have your moment.. you earn the right to do that.”If you think you’ve got what it takes, prove it at http://www.adidas.com/all2012, and you too could be training with a famous athlete in not only rugby, but your other favourite sports too.

Birds’s Nest Atami / Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP

first_imgArchDaily “COPY” Houses Collaboration:Treehouse CreationsMain Structure:Steel Three-Dimensional TrussUpper Structure:Timber FrameworkFoundation:Diamond PierSite Area:65,000 m2City:AtamiCountry:JapanMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Koji Fuji / Nacasa & Partners IncText description provided by the architects. I am often struck by the nests that crows build using clothes hangers. Hangers are not only durable but also highly elastic, and they offer more hooks to connect than branches and hence are easier to assemble. Crows, flying deftly across the dichotomy of natural and artificial, are creating a functional and comfortable environment.Save this picture!PlanWhen I was thinking about how I would like to make a building like those hanger nests, I received a request from Takashi Kobayashi, a tree house builder. A tea house of 10m2 or less was desired as the showpiece of “RISONARE Atami,” a new athletic zone built by Hoshino Resorts. The host tree was a great camphor tree over 300 years of age, 6m in girth and 22m tall, enshrined in a lush, virgin forest overlooking the ocean. It being a facility for the general public, we thought it should be structurally safe and easy to explain, hence we decided to create an independent building that does not touch the tree in any way.Save this picture!© Koji Fuji / Nacasa & Partners IncThe site, however, was a steep slope inaccessible to heavy machineries, and the house itself would have to be established among complexly intertwined branches 10m above ground. Therefore, to enable construction by manpower using light structural members, we chose a composition employing square and hexagonal solid steel rods, 3cm in diameter. Assembling the rods by connecting the surfaces, we constructed a truss held at two points by strong hexagonal bolts. For the foundation, we carefully inserted pier type foundations between the roots in order to avoid the use of concrete and large-scale excavation. Using the structure itself as scaffolding, we assembled it by avoiding the branches as birds create their nest, adding or taking out components based on structural analysis. We mortared the room interior to be like a swallow’s nest. The design leaves open the possibility for visitors to experience nest building by picking up branches from the mountain side and fitting them into walls inside. The exterior appearance and interior space have a gentle and comfortable atmosphere reflecting the bodily scale of the builders.Save this picture!SectionIt is architecture assembled by intertwining components small enough to carry. The architecture can adapt flexibly to the tree form (as opposed to “site form”) and melts into the forest crowded with dark branches.Save this picture!© Koji Fuji / Nacasa & Partners IncProject gallerySee allShow lessLianzhou Museum of Photography / O-office ArchitectsSelected ProjectsImmanuel Church / Kim Seunghoy (Seoul National University) + KYWC ArchitectsSelected Projects Share 2014 Structural Design: Projects Takashi Kobayashi & Treehouse Creations Photographs CopyHouses•Atami, Japan Arup Area:  10 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Birds’s Nest Atami / Hiroshi Nakamura & NAPSave this projectSaveBirds’s Nest Atami / Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP Manufacturers: Hinoki Cypress, Japanese Ash, Japanese Cedar, Plastering Mortar ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/885670/birdss-nest-atami-hiroshi-nakamura-and-nap Clipboard Photographs:  Koji Fuji / Nacasa & Partners Inc Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Contractor: Architects: Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Koji Fuji / Nacasa & Partners Inc+ 8 Share Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/885670/birdss-nest-atami-hiroshi-nakamura-and-nap Clipboard Birds’s Nest Atami / Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP Japan “COPY” CopyAbout this officeHiroshi Nakamura & NAPOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAtamiJapanPublished on December 22, 2017Cite: “Birds’s Nest Atami / Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP” 21 Dec 2017.

Honoring Nate Greer: Killed by BART and Hayward police

first_imgFamily members call for justice for their loved one.On July 30, “A Day to Remember Our Loved Ones,” the Nate Greer family held a barbeque in Hayward, Calif., and invited others who had lost loved ones to police violence to join them.And they did! Families from across the Bay Area came out, including those of Asa Sullivan, Teo Valencia, Herman Jaramillo, Derrick Gaines and Kerry Baxter, Jr. — all victims of police killings. Also attending were supporters from the Alex Nieto Coalition, the Anti Police-Terror Project, the Idriss Stelley Coalition, Frisco 500 and Workers World Party.Workers World interviewed Nate’s wife, Deana, about the circumstances surrounding his death:WW: Why was Nate stopped by the ­police?Deana: The lieutenant told him that he pulled him over for driving “goofy.”WW: Was anyone with him when he was stopped, or were there any eyewitnesses who have come forward?Deana: He was alone. The police report states two witnesses.WW: Talk about what happened after he was stopped, leading up to his death?Deana: He exited the vehicle and proceeded to comply with the field sobriety test as instructed to do. He was then asked to walk over to flatter ground to continue the field sobriety test, and he did that as well. When he noticed many officers surrounding him, he questioned what was going on, and what were they going to do to him? It was then that the BART [Bay Area Rapid Transit] police officer pulled him down to the ground, and they all began to wrestle with him and pile on top of him. They wrapped him in a body wrap and Tased him several times. Then he lost consciousness.WW: Did they ever explain how BART police got involved in this traffic stop?Deana: No, I still haven’t gotten any info on that. It was one of my questions, too.WW: How long did it take for the ambulance to arrive?Deana: The struggle lasted on the ground for approximately ten minutes. When they rolled him over to wrap his upper body, they realized he was not breathing. They continued to wrap his lifeless body and left him over on the side unattended for approximately seven minutes before the ambulance arrived.WW: Were any family members notified at this time? When did the family hear about his death?Deana: We were not notified. The coroner’s report stated that the police department said to not notify the family until the scene had been cleared. It also stated that there was a press hold on this case. I was calling hospitals, looking for him and ended up calling the coroner’s office, and that’s when I found out that he was dead!WW: What did the police say to your family?Deana: When my son and I spoke to the detective, he said that nothing on the video showed any excessive force or anything the police officers did wrong.WW: How long did it take before the family received the coroner’s report and the police report?Deana: I don’t recall but it wasn’t too much longer after he died. I had to physically go and get the coroner’s report. I attempted several times before I was able to obtain it, same with the police report. The police report is redacted and pages are missing, so I still have yet to receive the complete police report. I believe my attorney subpoenaed that and has since received it.WW: Who is the family lawyer, and when did you first contact the lawyer? Did you need the lawyer to make the requests in order to get the above reports?Deana: We met with lawyer Stan Goff early on to seek legal advice, and he took our case. A few weeks later, he recruited Fulvio Cajina, and he became our second lawyer along with Matt Haley, who is our third.WW: When and how did you get the police bodycam footage?Deana: Stan Goff obtained it from BART.WW: When did you file the lawsuit, and what can you say about the status of the suit?Deana: It was filed right after he was killed. Trial is set for early next year.WW: Why are you organizing events like the recent barbeque? Have you met other families undergoing similar tragedies as yours?Deana: I am preparing to have a town hall meeting on August 20 to organize with families in Hayward about community awareness. Unfortunately, I have met with many families who have encountered the same type of loss.The meeting will be at 944 Central Blvd., Hayward, Calif., at 1 p.m.Please sign the petition to demand justice for Nate.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
