BEST OF THE BROKERS

first_img Share BEST OF THE BROKERS Tuesday 22 February 2011 7:14 pm BPUBS rates the oil major “buy” with a target price of 550p. The broker believes that BP’s 30 per cent stake in Indian explorer Reliance is worth $7.8bn (£4.8bn), slightly above the $7.2bn payment announced on Monday, and that the deal will raise BP’s gearing to around 16 per cent. UBS thinks the deal shows an aggressive reloading of exploration at the firm that will also add 93,000 barrels of oil a day to BP’s production figures.BRITISH AMERICAN TOBACCOMorgan Stanley rates the firm “equal-weight” and has raised its target price by 220p to £25.45. The broker predicts a cash return for investors as BAT’s net debt falls to around 1.5 times underlying earnings, with the possibility of further small acquisitions. Morgan Stanley views the stock as a consensus play on emerging market growth, with one of the strongest business models in global tobacco.GO AHEAD GROUPNomura rates the transport group “neutral” with a lifted target price of £14.08. The broker has raised its 2011 earnings per share forecast by 12 per cent to reflect strong gains in the UK rail business, and expects the firm’s underlying revenue growth of three to four per cent outside London to at least continue as the cost of motoring rises. However, Nomura does not expect a dividend rise until cover hits around two times earnings.

This FTSE 100 share pays a 10% yield and is down 30%. Here’s why I’m buying

first_imgThis FTSE 100 share pays a 10% yield and is down 30%. Here’s why I’m buying “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images The head of FTSE 100 investment giant Standard Life Aberdeen (LSE:SLA) says paying its 10% yield is an essential moral duty.But as I write, more than 30 FTSE 100 companies have scrapped forthcoming dividend payments. 2020’s total payout will fall to £64bn, down from £85bn in 2018 and £75bn last year.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…This leaves income investors in a very difficult position. Tens of thousands of older investors rely heavily on dividends to pay their household bills. Previous high-yield favourites like the big banks HSBC, Barclays and Lloyds, have bowed to regulatory pressure and abandoned their 2020 dividend plans.FTSE 100 income fallingStandard Life CEO Keith Skeoch has said in an interview that companies must pay the dividends they promised.He told CNBC on Friday 17 April: “There is a substantial part of our society that is dependent on retirement income, and dividends, particularly at the time when interest rates are incredibly low, are an important part of that support for retirement income.”He is right, you know. The Bank of England has now slashed interest rates to their lowest level in the 300-year history of the institution. So holding cash does absolutely nothing to improve your lot. With inflation, the purchasing power of your money will actually decrease the longer you hold it. Instead, set it to work in the stock market. That is the best chance you have to grow your wealth.Picking favouritesSkeoch’s comments were a shot across the bow for the likes of former FTSE 100 dividend specialists like Aviva, which surprised the market by cutting its final payout.Rival FTSE 100 insurer Legal & General, by contrast, committed to paying its 8.5% yield and handed out £753m to investors.As mentioned, in the interview, Skeoch added that there was a “moral obligation” to pay the 10% yield. And that he had to balance “the economic impact and our stewardship obligations“.I like his thinking. Dividends are the basis for most income investment decisions. They are obligations, not nice-to-haves. How many income investors might not return to Aviva when it abandoned them during the coronavirus crash? When they needed that money the most?The shares that have enough financial ammunition to carry out their dividend plans will jump straight to the top of investors’ must-buy lists.And Standard Life Aberdeen shares are 30.3% cheaper than they were three months ago. To me, that represents an incredibly good value buying opportunity.Turn 20 into 139We already know that a buy-and-hold strategy works best because of compounding and regular investing.Standard Life pays a 21.6p dividend per share annually. At a share price of 216p, that yield is exactly 10%.A £20,000 lump sum investment that returns 10% a year will produce £45,220 after 10 years. But add just £100 a month on top, and that figure jumps to £63,829. With an extra £250 a month in your Stocks and Shares ISA or SIPP, that single investment could yield £91,744 after a decade of compounding. Increase the additional stake to £500 a month and in 10 years your total could be £138,269.Even if the Standard Life share price grows to 300p as the economy recovers, that dividend per share will still represent a 7.2% yield. And buyers now will get the dual benefit of dividend income and capital appreciation.To me, that’s a good deal by any estimation.

Magners League Award Winners 2010/11

first_imgMagners LeagueThere were pre-Play-Off boosts for all four Magners League semi-final teams as they picked up trophies at the annual Magners League Awards dinner in Dublin.Table-topping Munster led the way as they picked up three major awards on the night with head coach Tony McGahan picking up the Coach of the Season title from one of his predecessors, Irish coach Declan Kidney.Ronan O’Gara won the ‘Gilbert Golden Boot’ after emerging as the league’s most consistent marksman during the regular season, while Munster stalwart Alan Quinlan was named as the recipient of Andy Irvine’s ‘Chairman’s Award’ following his remarkable 15 year career.Munster host reigning champions the Ospreys at Thomond Park on Saturday, 14 May in the second Play-Off semi-final and the Welsh region also left Dublin with a trophy after centre Ashley Beck was voted as the winner of the ‘Try of the Season’ for his effort against Glasgow Warriors at the Liberty Stadium.Leinster, who welcome Ulster to the RDS on Friday, 13 May for the first semi-final, left the Awards ceremony at the Carton House Hotel with the ‘Specsavers Fairplay Award’. That title, which comes with a £10,000 prize to put towards youth development, is given to the team that gathers the fewest yellow and red cards over the 22 rounds of the regular season. The final award went to the rising forward star of Welsh rugby, Toby Faletau. The Newport Gwent Dragons back row man was voted as the ‘Young Player of the Season’ by a panel of 19 journalists from around the four nations involved in the Magners League.PLAYERS’ PLAYER OF THE SEASON – Ruan Pienaar (Ulster)COACH OF THE SEASON – Tony McGahan (Munster)YOUNG PLAYER OF THE SEASON – Toby Faletau (Newport Gwent Dragons)CHAIRMAN’S AWARD – Alan Quinlan (Munster)TRY OF THE SEASON – Ashley Beck (Ospreys)GILBERT GOLDEN BOOT – Ronan O’Gara (Munster)SPECSAVERS FAIRPLAY AWARD – Leinster LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img But there was also a major fillip for Ulster ahead of one of their biggest assignments of the season as South African recruit Ruan Pienaar was handed the top prize on the night after being voted ‘Players’ Player of the Season’.“It has been an unbelievable first season for me at Ulster. I came to a place that I didn’t know but, thanks to the team, I settled in very quickly and enjoyed myself,” said Pienaar.“It is going to be a massive challenge for everyone this weekend, but we will go to Dublin and enjoy the whole experience.”last_img read more

Nestled in its hillside location with breathtaking views over Lake Constance and Reichenau Island, this typical 1970’s building was in desperate need of rehabilitation regarding current energy standards. The new owner and developer Thomas Tanner saw potential in its strong and rough form, reminiscent of architecture during this time. From a sustainability perspective, the large amount of grey energy already built into the existing structure speaks for rehabilitation rather than demolition.Save this picture!© Jan KellerSave this picture!© Jan KellerIts lake-ward tilting rectangular body rests on a solid base creating a strong dynamic that gives this building its character. This sloping gesture was maintained and enhanced by carefully reworking the window sizes to form horizontal window strips. The pre-existing lakeside facade was gutted out, neatly exposing its bold slanting wooden double beams that support the large overhanging body.Save this picture!© Jan KellerSave this picture!Elevation WestSave this picture!© Jan KellerA fine black metal railing presents the only barrier between the lake and its beholder in this extended outside living area. Replaced with a welleternit cover, the roof now folds around the entire hill facing the facade on the backside of the building. The lateral facades to the east and west of the building are cladded with vertical timber planks.Save this picture!© Jan KellerThe art of an energy rehabilitation project is to preserve the architectural quality and character of a building. The house of Salenstein achieves this by forming a mature character, form, and function. The shell of the building is now completely insulated and the old oil-fired heating replaced with an energy-efficient heat pump. Through diligent detailing, we achieved the harmonic transition of a 50-year-old building into a lasting family home with modern standards, which would have otherwise had to be destroyed and disposed of.Save this picture!© Jan KellerProject gallerySee allShow lessIndah House / Siqueira + Azul ArquiteturaSelected ProjectsSnøhetta Designs the New Central Building for Ford’s Research & Engineering Campus i…Architecture News Share Tanner House / Bauatelier Metzler Tanner House / Bauatelier MetzlerSave this projectSaveTanner House / Bauatelier Metzler Save this picture!© Jan Keller+ 18Curated by Paula Pintos Share Architects: Bauatelier Metzler Area Area of this architecture project Switzerland ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/960619/tanner-house-bauatelier-metzler Clipboard Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/960619/tanner-house-bauatelier-metzler Clipboard Houses 2016 “COPY” “COPY” Photographs CopyAbout this officeBauatelier MetzlerOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationOn FacebookSwitzerlandPublished on April 26, 2021Cite: “Tanner House / Bauatelier Metzler” 26 Apr 2021.

Although survival rates are over 70%, cancer remains the single largest cause of death from disease in children in the UK.The incredible sum raised will help fund CLIC Sargent specialist nurses at every children’s cancer centre across the UK. The nurses will act as key workers and coordinate all the children’s care in hospital and in the community. This will change the way children are cared for and allow them to spend more time at home and less time in hospital.David Reid, Tesco Chairman, said: “Raising £7.2 million and outstripping the £5 million target is an outstanding achievement. The money raised will allow CLIC Sargent to make a huge difference to the quality of the every day lives of children with cancer and their families. We are grateful to every single customer, supplier and staff member who contributed to this vital cause.”Lorraine Clifton, Chief Executive at CLIC Sargent said: “I would like to say a huge thank you to Tesco staff and customers for helping to makethe partnership such a phenomenal success. It’s a fantastic accomplishment.”“Smashing the £5 million target will not only allow us to establish key worker roles to help us coordinate care for children with cancer. The additional £2.2 million raised will provide local support and care for over 500 more families. This includes financial help to meet extra costs, free accommodation close to treatment centres and practical and emotional support for the whole family.” Advertisement  91 total views,  3 views today About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Let’s travel back in time to a simpler and easier period in America… A time when ground beef cost 89 cents for 3 pounds! Onions were 15 cents for 5 pounds and coffee was 15 cents per pound.The menus at a 50’s Diner were always there to give hungry customers comfort food that always made one think of Moms Cooking. Items like Country Fried Steak with Herb Gravy, Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits, Apple Pie, Patty Melts, Loaded Potato Skins and Banana Cream Pie (hungry yet?) have long been dazzling taste buds of Diners across the Nation and this summer, a new generation of kids 7-17, can experience the great tastes of the 1950’s in the Cooking Camp’s (www.summerartacademy.com) fun and creative hands on Cooking class series called the 50’s Diner.Teens and Kids will be able to bring home creations like Cheese Dogs with from scratch Chili, Country Cole Slaw and Mini Sweet Potato Pies all taught to them by Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts Pasadena trained Chefs.The brainchild of Executive Chef Chris Allen, also a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts Pasadena in 2001 began the Cooking Camp to serve Pasadena kids in 2005. “I’m so happy we are heading into our 8th year teaching the Teenagers and Kids of Pasadena the art of Cooking. I feel it is these creative courses that I try to create an learning environment that can give the whole family something that spans generations and spawns conversation that everyone can be a part of. Like talking about the blend of creaminess and crunchiness in perfectly cooked Chicken Fried Steak with Country Gravy!!”“The 50’s style Diner is fading away slowly and this is my way to try to make sure that the next generations can appreciate the delicious taste of the 50’s Diner. I think there is no better way to make it a long lasting memory then to let Kids make it themselves and be actively involved in creating something delicious and give them a link to a time long ago and have something they can share memories with their Parents and Grandparents.”So help keep the memories of the 50’s Diner alive with your Teens and Kids where they can learn about a generation gone by and experience it via the delicious food selections of the 50’s Diner.For more information visit Summer Art Academy’s Cooking Camp at www.summerartacademy.com.

‘Monica’s Law’ passes house floor

first_img Twitter Pinterest Twitter Local News Previous article041819_Paxton_WILDNext articlePríncipe Mohammed bin Salman anuncia a Soudah Development Company (SDC) Digital AIM Web Support WhatsApp TAGS  Facebookcenter_img By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 Pinterest Monica Deming is the namesake for “Monica’s Law.” Deming, 32, was murdered by her ex-boyfriend in 2015, who had two previously had two protection orders placed against him for domestic violence. State Rep. Brooks Landgraf, R-Odessa, said he breathed a sigh of relief as he watched “Monica’s Law” come to fruition.The law, which could help prevent domestic violence and protect victims, passed with a strong majority in the Texas House of Representatives 137 to 6 on Monday during the 86th Texas legislative session.Landgraf said unless the governor vetoes the bill, the law would go into effect on Sept. 1.“I’m thrilled,” Landgraf said. “This law is going to do a lot of good for a lot of people and it’s going to save lives. It’s going to prevent domestic violence.“It wasn’t easy to get where we are today, but I’m glad to see all of the hard work has paid off.”As the tallies to pass the bill rolled in, Landgraf said he reminisced on the talks he had with former Odessa Police Department officer Jon Nielsen, the father of 32-year-old Monica Deming, about his daughter being murdered in an act of domestic violence in 2015.Deming was murdered by her ex-boyfriend, despite him having two separate protective orders for domestic violence issued against him, which he was able to hide from OPD due to them being from other jurisdictions, and no database available to show history of protective orders due to domestic violence.“Monica’s Law” would create an online database available to the public and law enforcement listing protective orders issued by Texas courts as a result of domestic violence.“I kept thinking of Jon Nielsen and the heartbreak that he has endured as the father of a murdered domestic violence victim,” Landgraf said. “My heart immediately went out to Mr. Nielsen, but then also this measure is going to prevent other fathers from having to experience the grief he did.”Landgraf said “Monica’s Law” gained a large amount of traction during the 2017 Texas Legislative session, but it ran out of time on the senate floor.“Monica’s Law” passed in the Texas Senate earlier during the 86th Texas legislative session, but Landgraf said it didn’t want to think too far ahead until it also passed the Texas House of Representatives.“You can never take anything for granted in the Texas legislature,” Landgraf said. “Even though I knew we had a tremendous amount of support, I didn’t want to count my chickens before they hatched.”Throughout the last five years, there have been a total of 4,156 assaults detailed in OPD’s Uniform Crime Report.Landgraf admitted there’s not only a problem of assault in the district he represents, but a concern throughout the country.“Thanks to ‘Monica’s Law’ individuals who perpetrate violence won’t be able to work in the shadows and they won’t be able to hide behind arbitrary jurisdictional lines anymore,” Landgraf said. “This shines sunlight on bad actors in our society and it doesn’t matter where it is in the state of Texas.”The six members of the Texas House of Representatives that voted no on “Monica’s Law” were Matt Krause, Matt Schaefer, Valoree Swanson, Tony Tinderholt, Terry Wilson and Bill Zedler. Seven representatives abstained from voting. Facebook WhatsApp ‘Monica’s Law’ passes house floorlast_img read more
