Bernstein’s Crystal Amber Asset Management, which owns 15.8 per cent of JJB Group, has also demanded a seat on the board of the troubled sports retailer in order to steer it towards recovery.Others said to be considering their options over the rights issue include JJB’s biggest investor Harris Associates, which owns 20 per cent of the stock, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which owns five per cent. JJB released a statement on Friday announcing that it is likely to breach its £25m financial covenant with the Bank of Scotland at its next test in January.Its most recent financial statement puts net debt at £16.6m and while sales are up 13 per cent on last year the increase has been by less than anticipated, in part due to the bad weather.The group has also had to contend with investigations by the Financial Services Authority and the Serious Fraud Office, contributing to a halving of its share price since early November.

Investors back Thales despite €100m loss

first_img alison.lock Investors shrugged off a profit warning from French defence company Thales as its chief executive lashed out at previous management for handing him a legacy of flawed contracts and cost overruns.Europe’s largest defence electronics company is to post an operating loss of close to €100m (£84.5m) for 2010 after higher-than-expected charges linked to problems in making Thales’s share of the Airbus A400M military plane.“We now see light at the end of the tunnel regarding this difficult contract portfolio inherited from the past,” chief executive Luc Vigneron told a news conference.Thales makes radars for the French Rafale and Mirage jet fighters, military and commercial satellites and equipment for civil passenger jets and railway signalling equipment.The warning, issued ten days before the group’s results, has put an end to speculation about extra charges, which had weighed on the company’s shares.Thales shares were up 2.6 per cent at €27.05 at mid-session, bucking a slightly weaker market.“They had the choice – either put it (the bad news on charges) on 2010 or spread it over 2011,” said Christophe Menard, analyst at Kepler Securities.“They chose the first option, which is relatively neutral from a share price point of view, even if the level of charges and provisions seem to me to be excessively high.”Thales said it would book charges and provisions totalling €700m for 2010, while analysts had expected something close to €100-150m.Amid a spate of negative press reports and staff criticism, Vigneron has been struggling to impose his authority on the company he has led since Dassault Aviation became its largest industrial shareholder in 2009.French newspaper La Tribune reported last week that France’s highest defence policymaking body, chaired by President Nicolas Sarkozy, had discussed a possible ouster of Vigneron on January 31.Vigneron denounced what he called a “campaign of destabilisation” against Thales, which has been at the centre of political and industrial jockeying for power since well before it was privatised in 1999.“These rumours have nothing to do with the reality of the company as I see it,” a visibly angry Vigneron told reporters.Vigneron said he believed speculation about his future came from unnamed former Thales staff who were “trying to distract attention from the nice little legacy they left behind them”.Thales said it was aiming for an operating margin of five per cent in 2011, rising to six per cent in 2012. It said revenues should “grow slightly” led by aerospace and transport and its order intake should be “more or less in line with revenues”.Thales said it expected 2010 revenue to rise two per cent to €13.1bn.

Don’t waste the stock market crash! I’d invest in FTSE 100 dividend 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 | Friday, 10th April, 2020 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. The FTSE 100’s recent market crash means many of its members now have relatively high dividend yields. Of course, a number of them have already cut, postponed, or even cancelled shareholder payouts for the current year. As such, buying FTSE 100 dividend stocks may not seem to be a sound idea at present.However, over the long run, they could offer recovery potential due to their low valuations. Furthermore, their dividend prospects could improve as the world economy recovers from its current challenges. This could improve your portfolio’s returns, and help you to retire 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…Recovery prospectsIn the short run, FTSE 100 dividend stocks could experience further price declines. News flow regarding coronavirus is incredibly difficult, if not impossible, to accurately predict. As such, investor sentiment may rapidly change over the coming weeks. This may cause investors to experience paper losses from their holdings.However, the valuations of many FTSE 100 stocks suggest investors have priced in a substantial amount of economic challenges in the coming months. Since many investors who are planning for retirement have a long time horizon, there’s scope to buy undervalued FTSE 100 shares and benefit from their subsequent recovery. Ok, a return to their previous highs isn’t guaranteed. But the FTSE 100’s track record of recording higher highs following each of its past bear markets suggests this is a likely outcome.Income potentialSince a large portion of the FTSE 100’s past total returns have been derived from the reinvestment of dividends, reductions in shareholder payouts could harm near-term total returns.However, the fiscal and monetary policy response to coronavirus has already been significant. For example, interest rates in a range of countries have been cut. Also, governments across the world are providing loans and even grants to businesses to help them survive economic challenges.This could mean many businesses are able to quickly recover from the difficulties presented by coronavirus. They may, therefore, be able to resume dividend payments at a very similar level to where they’ve been in recent months. This could boost your income return. It could also strengthen your total returns in the long run.CyclicalityThe FTSE 100 doesn’t experience bear markets frequently. Historically, they’ve occurred every 5-15 years. Investors who buy stocks during them have the opportunity to make high total returns. That’s because high-quality stocks trading at low prices experience strong recoveries in the following years.Such an outcome this time isn’t guaranteed. But it seems likely high-quality FTSE 100 dividend stocks will experience improving operating conditions in the long run. As such, now could be one of the relatively few exceptional buying opportunities for FTSE 100 investors.At its current price level, the index could help you to build a larger nest egg… and retire early.

That’s an unfair message. This social awareness campaign sets the culture that sexual violence is absolutely not tolerated on our campus.”SGA received scrutiny from sexual assault survivors with the “Not on My Campus” initiative, Widick said.In order to increase campus involvement, SGA created a full “It’s on Us” week to combat sexual assault.The events began Monday with a banner signing at the Brown-Lupton University Union.Signs supporting the movement can be found all over campus. (Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.)Students walking to Market Square for lunch were greeted by Widick and fellow SGA members, smiling from ear to ear and asking students to sign a banner.Many students also wrote the three simple words, “It’s on Us,” on their hands to support victims of sexual violence which were shared through the SGA’s Facebook Page.More than 800 students signed the banner.Widick introduced the initiative along with Kat Nestor, director of sexual assault prevention and awareness. As director, Nestor is in charge of coordinating the events that occur throughout the week. Nestor also serves as a resource for victims.For Widick, going forward with the initiative was a no-brainer.“Any issue that prevents someone from having the full TCU experience needs to be addressed,” Widick said. “Whether that’s struggling with mental health or a sexual assault that they had in the past. It’s an incredible opportunity to establish the culture that sexual assault is not allowed in any way here and to help empower victims that they matter and their story matters.”Nestor said she wanted to go forward with “It’s on Us” this semester from hearing the stories of many victims across campus.“It’s not an easy thing to do,” Nestor said. “Especially on TCU’s campus which is so dominated by social culture. It’s all about fitting in and having a lot of friends. I think people are afraid to be vulnerable, so when people are vulnerable in a community like this it speaks even louder volumes.”According to the nation-wide “It’s On Us” data, 11 percent of all students experience rape or sexual assault during college. However, only six percent of college student body presidents believe that rape is a problem on their campus, according to FiveThirtyEight.SexualAssault_statVenngage Infographics“Those are heartstopping statistics,” Widick said. “This is something we need to actively address and the first step to improving something is realizing and recognizing it’s a problem.”Widick said there are two different facets of outreach: movement and bystander intervention training.The movement aspect happened by taking pictures and SGA hosted a bystander intervention training dinner Tuesday night to teach tips to listen, believe and support victims. Wednesday night featured a men’s sex and healthy relationships workshop.The events ended Friday with a keynote presentation on relationship violence by TCU’s Title IX Victim Advocate Leah Carnahan.A senior communications studies major and sexual assault survivor, who asked her name not be used, is grateful the university acknowledges the issue of sexual assault but wishes the university took greater steps.“They should do more than post about it on social media,” she said. “I think they should remind students about the issue once every month. It wouldn’t be too difficult and people may become more passionate about it.”She also suggested that all students should attend a mandatory meeting on sexual assault prevention. By forcing the idea onto students for one week only and forgetting about it for the rest of the school year not a lot of progress is made, she added.Two other schools in the Big 12 conference are involved with “It’s on Us:” The University of Texas and West Virginia University.Nestor said that TCU’s version stemmed from both schools.“Last year was the pilot year for ‘It’s on Us,’” Nestor said. “There were logistical things we needed to figure out. People weren’t completely sure what it was but this year we’ve been able to talk to a lot of other schools.”Widick said she was proud of the student body by the way they took part in the campaign.“I have felt very grateful for the way this community has approached this from trying to do everything they can to stop the problem,” Widick said. “I would love to keep this momentum going to be powerful bystanders against sexual assault.”Nestor and Widick had one goal for this week: placing the power in the survivor’s hands.“If we can help one person feel that they’re not alone and that their community believes them, then we’ve done our job,” Nestor said. “It would be great to have more than one person, but we should let people know that this is a community where they’re safe to share, encouraged to get help and will not be judged if they don’t choose to proceed with legal action.” Facebook Robbie Vaglio Snow temporarily stepping down as honors dean I am the executive editor of TCU 360 from Raleigh, North Carolina.

Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago On Tuesday, January 7, Puerto Rico was struck by a magnitude 6.4 earthquake south of Indios. Puerto Rico, still recovering from the effects of Hurricane Maria in 2017 when the island felt economic losses exceeding $1 billion in Ponce alone. Following the earthquake, CoreLogic expects the economic loss to be maintained within the $1 billion mark.“I am concerned because Puerto Rico hasn’t yet fully recovered from Hurricane Maria, and many of the homes on the island are designed for hurricanes and floods – they’re basically built on stilts, which makes them very vulnerable to earthquakes,” said Leisha Delgado, Founder & CEO, Hello Solutions. “Our experience from Maria tells us that there will be challenges coordinating assistance efforts, and communicating with people in parts of the island without power, so they may not know how to get aid, or know that help is on its way.”According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), this event has been identified as the main shock event (with 97% probability). A magnitude 5.8 event that struck on January 6 in a similar location is now identified as a foreshock.With Hurricane Maria in mind, much of the damage to homes in Puerto Rico is likely the cumulative effect of damage from different events. While in many cases of earthquakes, the cumulative damage refers to the foreshock, CoreLogic notes that damage is rather from the buildings that were partially damaged from Hurricane Maria in 2017 that have yet to be repaired, causing added uncertainty in loss estimation.CoreLogic also notes that there is uncertainty from the effect of demand surge, where materials are in short supply from the repairs from Hurricane Maria.“As such, there could be an additional spike in the cost of building materials and reconstruction work,” CoreLogic notes. “Because the island has been struck by two events in close proximity, repair costs could easily increase by up to 33% without federal or local government intervention.” January 9, 2020 3,452 Views center_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Related Articles Subscribe Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: Veteran Homeownership Rate Surpasses That of Overall Population Next: Detroit Expands Efforts to Prevent Property Tax Instigated Foreclosures Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days agolast_img read more

The bench has asked the UT administration to apprise it with the previous years’ data so it can take an informed decision on the viability of opening the “Darbar Move”. “In order to enable a considered view to be taken, it is necessary to have firm information with regard to the implications of the Darbar Move in these times; its impact on the necessary resources at this stage; on the personnel involved (positions and number); financial implications; arrangements (transport, accommodation, security etc) involved and other relevant matters. Past experience would lend guidance to our consideration,” the bench comprising of Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Rajnesh Oswal observed while directing the Registrar General of the High Court to place a report on relevant aspects of the Darbar Move before the next date of hearing. The order has been passed in the backdrop of announcement of formal opening of the Darbar Move from last week of April 2019/ 1st week of May, 2020, by the UT administration on Friday. During the course of hearing being conducted via video conferencing, Advocate Shafqat Nazir appearing for the Petitioner pointed out that the Move involves shifting of thousands of Government personnel at all levels and the shifting of complete administrative machinery, records etc. this in turn would cause “unnecessary squandering” of financial resources of the Government and will also violate the requirements of social distancing. He thus urged the court that the Move be postponed till COVID-19 infection issues have been addressed and the matter is under full control with mobility restored after removal of lockdown. Further, Advocate Faisal Qadri also appearing for the Petitioner submitted that if the administration shifts from Jammu to Srinagar at this point, the security personnel who are critically needed for COVID-19 functions and deployments, as also transport vehicles, would need to be withdrawn for providing security to the Government personnel, securing VIPs and important persons who would all shift to Srinagar. The Advocates also contended that there is a possibility of persons moving, carrying infection. Based on these submissions, the bench has sought information with regard to the implications of the Darbar Move in these times; its impact on the necessary resources at this stage; on the personnel involved (positions and number); financial implications; arrangements (transport, accommodation, security etc) involved, etc. Accordingly it has directed: The Secretary, General Administration Department, Union Territory of J&K to provide details of the government officials at all levels (position/category-wise) who were involved in the four Darbar Moves in the year 2018 and 2019.The Secretary, Finance Department, Union Territory of J&K to provide Move-wise categories/ heads, figures of the finances incurred on the four Darbar Moves for the years 2018 and 2019.The Secretary, Finance Department, Union Territory of J&K, to provide details of the financial benefits (as Move Allowance; Temporary Move Allowance and any other) admissible to the employees, in the four Moves for the years 2018, 2019 be provided.The Director General of Police, J&K to provide the details of the police personnel who were involved in providing security cover to personnel involved in the Darbar Moves in 2018 as well as 2019.
