Retailers boost recovery hopes

first_imgMonday 7 February 2011 9:41 pm KCS-content Spending on the UK’s high streets bounced back in January after December’s sales were hit by heavy snow, it will be revealed today.The news comes after the FTSE jumped 53.65 points yesterday – a rise of 0.89 per cent – breaking through the confidence-boosting 6,000 mark to close at 6,051.03.Retail sales were up 2.3 per cent on a like-for-like basis from January 2010, when sales had fallen 0.7 per cent, according to the British Retail Consortium (BRC) which released its findings today. Total sales were 4.2 per cent higher, against a 1.2 per cent increase in January 2010. “Pent up demand after December’s snow” was a factor behind the boom, the BRC said. In December annualised total sales increased by a modest 1.5 per cent, while “like-for-like” sales – which ignore shop floor expansion – fell by 0.3 per cent.The BRC played down January’s uptick, partly attributing it to a rush at the beginning of the month to avoid the 2.5 per cent hike in VAT.And it warned the government against any further squeeze on consumers. “A range of pressures is bearing down on customers,” said BRC director general Stephen Robertson. “As it considers the budget, the government must not add any more cuts.”A series of positive economic releases, combined with rising inflation, has increased the chance of the Bank of England raising interest rates this Thursday, observers said. While an actual hike would still come as a shock, there is a near-certainty of an increase by May at the latest, according to economists.UK gilt yields rose yesterday, with 10-year gilt yields reaching a nine-month high of 3.868 per cent, as investors considered the risk of a hike in rates.Meanwhile, the global economic recovery continued apace, with world equities approaching a 29-month high, and copper – seen as a bellwether of economic activity – reaching $10,121 (£6,268) a tonne in London. European shares rose to their highest close since September 2008. The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index of top shares closed up one per cent at 1,176.81 points.“Moving on from where it left off last week, I think the equity markets are focusing on the growth that is out there and are being supported by strong earnings,” said Mike Lenhoff of Brewin Dolphin. The Dow Jones and S&P 500 jumped to their highest levels since June 2008 yesterday, driven upwards by a wave of merger news and solid earnings. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Retailers boost recovery hopes whatsapp Share Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”WanderoamUndoZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndo Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Some top UK companies are now trading at dirt cheap valuations, ideal conditions for long-term investors.Moments like these are a great time to top up your portfolio as you work towards your long-term goal of building a million-pound pot for your retirement. Ian Lance, equity income fund manager at RWC Partners, reckons today’s best opportunities can be found in unloved ‘value’ stocks that have been overlooked by the market but offer great long-term potential.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…Lance, a fund manager for more than three decades, has unearthed several companies with profitable subsidiaries that are actually worth more than the entire group’s valuation.It is hard to love broadcaster ITV (LSE: ITV), which trades 70% lower than five years ago. The ITV share price was in long-term decline even before the pandemic. Competition from streaming services, squeezed advertising revenues and slowing growth at its much-heralded ITV Studios division have hit profits.Check out these bargain FTSE stocksThe ITV share price is down by half this year alone, as advertising revenues fell 42% in the pandemic, while the group was forced to pause programme making.As Lance points out, ITV is in effect two businesses: broadcasting and content production. In 2019, content production delivered profits of £267m. This would suggest a company valuation of £3.5bn, measured at 13 times earnings. Yet the entire group has a market cap of just £3.18bn today. This means the broadcast business, which made £500m last year, is effectively available for free. That looks like a bargain FTSE stock to me.Here’s another figure that might tempt you. Netflix spends around $15bn a year on content production, Lance notes. “For a fraction of this, they could have ITV’s entire back catalogue and all future content.”This is likely to be a tricky year for ITV, but it still looks like a tempting bargain FTSE 100 stock to me.Another dirt-cheap stock to considerThe outsourcing industry was hit hard by the collapse of Carillion and Interserve, while Kier Group and Capita Group (LSE: CPI) survived by the skin of their teeth.The Capita share price took another beating in the Covid-19 crash. Its face-to-face training, resourcing, contact centres, consultancies and corporate travel agency operations have been locked down. However, investors spotted a bargain FTSE stock and piled in, driving the stock up 30% in the last month.Capita’s high-margin software division made just over £100m of EBIT in 2019, which valued at a modest 15 times earnings would be worth £1.5bn, while the rest of the group delivered £200m of earnings. Yet today, the group has a market cap of just £681m.Lance says ITV and Capita are undervalued by a market that is fixated on short-term earnings momentum. He reckons these are genuine bargain FTSE shares and so do I, if you are investing for the long term.You will not make a million from investing in shares overnight. However, by identifying bargain FTSE stocks like these during a crash, you can accelerate your progress. Enter Your Email Addresslast_img read more

NAFTA Talks Continue in Washington

first_img Facebook Twitter NAFTA Talks Continue in Washington Trade officials from Canada returned to the U.S. Wednesday as part of the North American Free Trade Agreement talks. Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland resumed talks with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, but there are so far no major developments on the contentious issues being discussed, including dairy market access and the dispute settlement mechanism, top issues for Canada, which wants protection to remain in place for its dairy market.Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that Canada will not sign a revised agreement without the dispute settlement mechanism and a cultural exemption that will prevent the sale of Canadian media organizations to U.S. companies, according to the Hagstrom Report. While President Trump has offered a ‘go it alone’ approach for the U.S. and Mexico, U.S. lawmakers appear to refuse to support a deal that doesn’t include all three nations.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News NAFTA Talks Continue in Washington By Hoosier Ag Today – Sep 5, 2018 Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleGMO Labeling Rule Sent to OMBNext articleFMC Recommits to Research and Innovation Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

China: Three journalists sentenced to prison terms

first_img On December 25, 2018, the Nanjing Intermediate People’s Court sentenced Sun Lin, a former contributor to the US-based Chinese news website Boxun, to four years imprisonment for “inciting subversion of state power”. Already detained for more than two years, Sun did not appear in court as he was “emotionally unstable” according to the authorities.On December 28, Zhen Jianghua, the executive director of  Human Rights Campaign in China,  following a secret trial in August, was sentenced to two years in prison by the Zhuhai Court (Guangdong) under the same charge. Arrested in September 2017, Zhen had been cut off from the world for more than six months, detained in a “black jail” under the regime’s “residential surveillance in a designated location” (RSDL).On the same day, Ding Lingjie, editor of the human rights news website Minsheng Guancha (Civic Rights and Livelihood Watch), was sentenced to 20 months in prison by the Shijingshan District Court in Beijing for sharing a video satire of president Xi Jinping on social networks, and had already been held in pretrial detention for over a year.”The Chinese authorities have developed the deplorable habit of sentencing the defenders of information during the Christmas season, because they hope to limit the attention from the press and international public opinion”, denounces Cédric Alviani, Director of the East Asia Office of Reporters Without Borders (RSF), which calls on the international community “to increase its pressure on China to release all journalists held in jail”.On 26 December, 2017, anti-corruption blogger Wu Gan had been sentenced to eight years in prison for “inciting subversion of state power”. RSF award winner Liu Xiaobo, who was later awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and died in detention in 2017, was also given his 11-year jail term on December 25, 2009.China is the largest prison in the world for journalists, with more than 60 individuals behind bars. In the 2018 World Press Freedom Index published by RSF, the country stagnates at 176th out of 180.
