It had “crossed the Rubicon,” he declared (although chairman Lord Rothermere soon made it clear that Williams had crossed the line). DMGT abandoned plans to sell regional arm Northcliffe in 2007, so it has none of the emotional attachment that made offloading the Standard so painful; that sale was shelved after it couldn’t find a buyer willing to stump up £1.3bn. The division is likely worth less now: the outlook for regional ad sales is bleak, while pension problems remain. But Northcliffe, which accounts for just five per cent of profits, is a distraction and relaxed merger rules mean Trinity Mirror or Johnston could be interested. It’s time to sell.

The world’s largest coffee chain has seen wholesale coffee prices increase by nearly three-quarters since last summer – due to poor weather, fears over crop failure and rising global demand. The firm reported an operating income of $501.9m (£315m) for the three months to 2 January, up from $370.9m a year earlier. Earnings per share stood at 45 cents, compared with 33 cents last year. Christmas trading, traditionally a strong period for Starbucks, saw a five per cent rise in international sales. The firm hopes to continue its aggressive expansion by opening 500 new stores in 2011, 400 of which will be outside the US. Starbucks shares, which have risen 47 per cent in the last year, lost two per cent in after-hours trading following the results announcement after the New York closing bell. “The strong momentum in our global business in fiscal 2011 positions us to deliver 15 to 20 per cent earnings per share growth compared to last year’s results, and to reaffirm our 2011 guidance despite dramatically higher coffee costs,” said chief financial officer Troy Alstead. Chief executive Howard Schultz credited some of the earnings jump to Starbucks’ foray into pre-packaged instant coffee, which grew 12 per cent in the period and now makes up six per cent of revenue.

Stock market crash: 2 cheap UK shares I’d buy in a Stocks and Shares ISA today “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.

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.

Image source: Getty Images Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The recent stock market crash means that there are a number of cheap UK shares available to buy today.Although their financial prospects may be somewhat uncertain in the near term, their low valuations suggest that investors have largely priced in a tough economic environment. Therefore, they could be worth buying today in a Stocks and Shares ISA and holding for the long run.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…With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 shares that appear to offer wide margins of safety. They could deliver sound share price recoveries after the market’s recent decline.Passive income opportunity among cheap UK sharesVodafone’s (LSE: VOD) recent stock price decline means that it appears to offer good value for money compared to other cheap UK shares. The telecoms company now has a dividend yield of 8% after its 30% stock price decline since the start of the year.Despite weak investor sentiment, the business appears to have a sound outlook. Its recent updates have shown that it is making progress in areas such as digital opportunities, investing in its infrastructure and in simplifying its business model to improve efficiencies.Clearly, cheap UK shares such as Vodafone could become even more undervalued in the coming months. However, with a solid track record of dividend payouts and a wide margin of safety, now may be the right time to buy a slice of the business for the long term.An undervalued property stockBritish Land (LSE: BLND) is another FTSE 100 company that appears to offer investment appeal relative to other cheap UK shares. The commercial property business now trades at a 60% discount to its net asset value. This suggests that investors are pricing in a very challenging period for the business, which could provide scope for a share price recovery.Certainly, the company faces significant risks. For example, demand for retail units is likely to fall as e-commerce sales rise. And, with a trend towards working from home, office space may be required to a lesser extent. However, the company’s sound financial position and diverse portfolio could mean that it is able to adapt to changing demands across the commercial property sector.Therefore, now could be the right time to buy a slice of the business while it has a relatively low valuation even compared to other cheap UK shares.Buying companies in a Stocks and Shares ISAPurchasing cheap UK shares such as Vodafone and British Land through a Stocks and Shares ISA could be a sound move. It offers tax efficiency and greater flexibility than other products such as a SIPP, with ISA withdrawals being tax-free and available at any time.Certainly, the outlook for the stock market is opaque. But through buying undervalued shares you could enjoy improving long-term financial prospects.

Here’s what I think is pushing Glencore shares upwards

Here’s what I think is pushing Glencore shares upwards 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. The share price of Glencore Xstrata (LSE: GLEN) is rocketing. Up 47.5% over the last month, compared to the FTSE 100‘s 13.8%, there is little doubt about current demand for the stock of the Anglo-Swiss multinational. Indeed, the share price is now back to pre-pandemic levels.However, short-term stock price swings are very hard to interpret. Factors outside a firm’s control can make a large difference to a share price. This is in sharp contrast to the long-term trend when price movements generally reflect the performance of the underlying business.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…So, how does this apply to Glencore?Glencore share price driversOver the last 10 years, Glencore’s share price has been underwhelming, returning a negative 54.6% in comparison with the Footsie 100’s positive 170%. Generally, it’s a firm that appears to continually weigh down the index. This is despite producing a higher-than-industry average return on equity (ROE) of 10.6% over the last five years. It appears to manage its shareholders’ funds better than the average miner. But, it’s not enough to drive increased demand for its stock over time.Things were different back in August 2020 when the mining behemoth posted a fall in its half-year profits, blamed on the Covid-19 pandemic. It also reported a 12% increase in net debt and a conditional return to paying a dividend in 2021. Investors took this news in context and reacted positively. As a result, the firm experienced a short-term spike in demand for its stock.However, no further financial results are due until next spring, so I think it’s a valid assumption that the recent share price take-off is due to external factors alone. This potentially leaves the future Glencore share price vulnerable to outside events.Although this situation is true of all companies, it is an externality magnified in a mining firm’s revenues as they are dependent on commodity prices. Coincidently, copper prices are at a seven-year high. As a key commodity for Glencore, this should reflect well in the firm’s share price. In addition, China, one of Glencore’s biggest markets, is now back to business after the Covid-19 shut-down. It has a renewed appetite for raw materials, stimulating demand for Glencore products once again.  Is Glencore a good buy?The current Glencore Xstrata share price is hovering around 241p. Given the net asset value per share is around 222p, that’s a lot of business for your money. By comparison, Rio Tinto shares are currently selling for twice the net asset value. This makes Rio relatively more expensive by this metric.The future also bodes well for Glencore as it’s positioned itself well for the energy transition from fossil fuels to renewables. Its key products of copper, nickel, and cobalt are used in batteries and infrastructure. In addition, competitors such as Rio Tinto are to divest out of coal but Glencore is holding steady and preparing to mop up any additional demand created. That said, the firm has also agreed to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 by reducing its coal production. Although the recent share price rise is likely due to external events, Glencore is well-positioned for the future. And despite the price rise, I think the stock is still relatively cheap.  Rachael FitzGerald-Finch owns shares of Glencore. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

How much is your vote worth?

first_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Reply Well, if there were, say, 30,000 of those folks in states like Pa and Wisconsin, they could have changed the outcome of the election. As far as the elephant in the room, the Electoral College, I for one DO NOT want states like California and NY driving politics for the entire country based on their large populations. Every State in the Union should have a say in the Presidential Election. The anatomy of a voteOpinion By Greg Jackson, Esq.A few days ago, I found myself in an Apopka-area chain drug store speaking to a young man about a number of topics: sports, school, music, and then somehow the conversation turned to politics. After expressing his displeasure with the outcome of the most recent elections, the young man said, “it doesn’t matter to me anyway, because I don’t vote.”Greg JacksonI was a bit taken aback by his nonchalant, matter-of-fact way of admitting to me that he willingly gave up a right that so many fought and died for. But, I resisted the urge to say what was truly on my mind and simply asked “why not?” The young man expressed a view that far too many young people are taking in this age and told me that he didn’t vote because he felt his vote did not matter and would not have counted. He told me that he would not vote until he knew his vote would put who he wanted in office and accomplished what was important to him.It was at that moment that I realized what the true problem may be with young voters or those who turn their backs on the political process. Aside from being turned off by the tactics and antics of some political groups and candidates who only come around during election time to pander for votes, many young people view their votes as this mystical-thing that can grant wishes. They feel that their singular vote should be able to put people with their ideas in office. They feel that their vote should change overnight the condition of entire communities. They feel that their vote should entitle them to make all the ills of the world disappear and life will be as easy as pie.But, in actuality a vote is quite simply a formal expression of opinion or choice, either positive or negative, made by an individual or body of individuals. It is a right and privilege bestowed upon all eligible citizens of this great Country of ours. A vote is a very personal thing that is not to be wasted, compromised or taken advantage of. A vote is not a magic wand that you wave to create a better life; it is, however, a mechanism through which change has been brought about. The best we can hope for is that we live in a society where a collection of likeminded people see things (i.e., issues, candidates etc.) the same way and their collective voices will come together to bring about change. Whether good, bad or indifferent we have seen what singular voices coming together can do in 2008, 2012 and 2016.To those who are reluctant to vote, what I say is this, always cast a vote, express yourself through this process. The fact that people try to control communities by controlling votes should be an indication of its importance. But what makes a vote important is not that it can be controlled. What makes a vote important is that it is uniquely and distinctly yours to express how you want to shape society. Your vote is an extension of you and is your contribution to becoming an agent of change for the greater good of all. The worst thing you could ever do is silence yourself by failing to vote; even if things don’t turn out how you want them to, at least you can say you expressed yourself.Greg Jackson is a past Assistant Attorney General for the State of Florida, military veteran, current Orange County District 2 Representative on the Board of Zoning Adjustments, and General Counsel for the Community Redevelopment Agency.

Code of practice for Irish charities launched

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. The Irish Tax Reform Group (ITRG) is inviting charities to sign up to a new code of practice which includes a donor’s charter for fundraising. The code is supported by a complaints and feedback procedure for the public and a monitoring body to ensure compliance.The donor’s charter allows a right to know about the causes for which a charity is fundraising and whether its fundraisers are employees or third party agents.The code of practice applies to all fundraising including door-to-door and street collections, telemarketing, direct mail, emergency appeals, internet donations, raffles, church-gate collections and bequests.Signatories to the code will be required to adhere to five key components – a commitment to good practice, a donor charter, a complaints procedure, a monitoring group and publication of an annual report.The ITRG hopes that the voluntary code will demonstrate that statutory regulation, which may come with the 2009 Charities Act, will not be necessary.“The Irish give more to charities than many of their international counterparts and open and honest fundraising is absolutely crucial to public trust,” Sheila Nordon, executive director of Irish Charities and Tax Research, told the Irish Times.www.ictr.ie Howard Lake | 15 March 2011 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  18 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Code of practice for Irish charities launchedlast_img read more

Bold Atlanta action hits detentions, deportations of migrants

first_imgOn Nov. 19, in a bold action directed at the detention and deportation practices of the Obama administration, 15 undocumented immigrants and citizen supporters chained themselves to the fence surrounding the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) headquarters in Atlanta.Sponsored by the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights, Southerners on New Ground (SONG) and Project South, this direct action was part of a national “Not One More” campaign, which has conducted dramatic protests across the country. In Chicago, activists chained themselves to a deportation bus preventing it from carrying detainees away.The immigrant rights movement is refusing to accept the lack of congressional progress in passing comprehensive, fair immigration reform while hundreds of thousands of people continue to be detained and deported. The campaign demands presidential action now to stop the separation of families.To read the statements of those who were arrested in Atlanta and accounts of actions in other cities, please go to notonemoredeportation.comFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
