Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” It stands to reason that FTSE 100 stock Tesco is dominating the financial headlines on Wednesday. The UK’s largest retailer is a perfect barometer for the issues the broader sector has experienced since the coronavirus outbreak.With the grocery goliath all over the news, another Footsie share updating the market today has gone under the radar. DS Smith (LSE: SMDS) has put out a much brighter update than its blue-chip colleague. In fact it should be commanding much stronger attention given its success in these turbulent times. As a shareholder in this particular share, I am very happy with what I saw.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…Geographical diversity creates strengthFor the uninitiated, DS Smith is a business that provides packaging requirements for consumer goods companies. This includes, most notably, FMCG firms, and to a more limited extent, industrial firms. The FTSE 100 share operates in almost 40 countries and has a significant and rising presence in Europe and the US. Its sprawling presence has been underpinned by a strong appetite for acquisitions over many years.It has a critical role in the supply of essential goods like foods and household products. And this gives it the sort of defensive strength needed in times of challenging economic, political and social times like these. That’s a quality it highlighted today when declaring that “trading since our update on 4 March 2020 has remained resilient with relatively limited impact from Covid-19 seen to date.”Corrugated box volumes have been “good”, the firm adding that demand has actually picked up during the first six months of the current fiscal year (to October). Its operations in Southern Europe have endured some weakness, sure. But the impact has been much less in the north of the continent. And in Eastern Europe, the pandemic has had no “meaningful effect” at all. Recent trading in North America meanwhile is described as being “robust.”One of my favourite FTSE 100 stocksAs one would expect, panic buying means that its activity within the grocery sector has been particularly strong in recent weeks. This is not the only reason why it has thrived, however. It has also benefited from rising online demand for both discretionary and essential items. No doubt this is a reflection of increased numbers of shoppers switching to internet retailing because of lockdowns. E-commerce is a segment in which the business has ramped up investment in recent times.A fly in the ointment is that DS Smith decided to axe the interim dividend given the uncertain outlook for the global economy. But this is a prudent step in the circumstances. And it’s certainly no suggestion of a weak balance sheet. Its net debt-to-EBITDA ratio should still come in at a healthy 2 times as of the end of April. And it has £1.bn worth of undrawn loan facilities.At current prices DS Smith trades on a forward P/E ratio below 10 times. This is far too cheap given its mighty defensive qualities, I believe. And let’s not forget its exceptional long-term outlook. I’m tempted to load up on some more of this FTSE 100 share at current prices.

first_imgArsenal boss Emery: We’ll keep playing out from the backby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveUnai Emery admits Arsenal must improve their passing out from the back for Thursday’s Europa League clash with Eintracht Frankfurt.The Gunners’ sloppy distribution against Watford on Saturday saw them blow a two-goal lead to settle for a draw.And Emery is expecting similar high pressure from Frankfurt on Thursday.”To learn is first to have analysis on how we can improve, how we can recover our confidence playing with our objectives, starting and controlling the match, what we are doing with the ball.”Really on Sunday we needed more, that’s what we wanted. We made some mistakes and conceded some goals.”We spoke and we are working yesterday and today on how we can play tomorrow. Frankfurt are usually doing a very high press, with very fast players around the opponents.”Tomorrow we need to improve on the mistakes we made on Sunday to do better. Also we want to achieve another way on the pitch, how we can break the pressing.”After we want to control every game with the ball, with the positioning. We did that on Sunday in the first half, but in the second half we didn’t. And tomorrow is a new challenge, how we are improving, our positioning, our control and our ability to break the press.”Also how we can play the long ball and make some actions in the attacking third, to get the ball, to score and to win the match. Tomorrow is another challenge for us to show we can improve from the game on Sunday.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Cabinet Approves Drafting of Local Government Legislation

first_img The legislation will facilitate the modernisation of the local government system in Jamaica. The proposed Local Governance Act was created by consolidating several existing acts and will introduce several new concepts. Story Highlights Cabinet has approved the issuing of drafting instructions for the three strategic laws in the local government reform process. Cabinet has approved the issuing of drafting instructions for the three strategic laws in the local government reform process.These are: the Local Government Act, the Local Government and Financial Management Act, and the Local Government Unified Services and Employment Act.Minister of State in the Ministry of Local Government and Community Development, Hon. Colin Fagan, made the announcement as he addressed a Community Development Committees Conference held on Wednesday, November 13, in Savanna-La-Mar, Westmoreland.He said that the legislation will facilitate the modernisation of the local government system in Jamaica and enable local authorities to more effectively respond to the citizenry.“What this will do is allow for the local authorities to have more autonomy and be responsive to their citizens once these laws come into being. We still have some stages to go; drafting instructions will now be issued to the Chief Parliamentary Counsel and so they will have to look at all the laws, cross check to see which one interferes with which law and so on. It will take a little time,” Mr. Fagan said.He stated that the Government is serious about local government reform, and will be seeking to expedite the process by “engaging the services of some lawyers outside of what exists in government.”The State Minister said that the proposed Local Governance Act was created by consolidating several existing acts and will introduce several new concepts and tenets which “better reflect a modern approach to local governance and would strengthen local self-management, making local authorities autonomous and responsive to their citizenry”.“The primary focus is on issues of good governance, including accountability, transparency, inclusiveness and equity, local self-management, participation of civil society in the local governance process.  The Local Governance Act is an important piece of legislation that will certainly facilitate the bid to identify additional means of driving local economic development, which will, in turn make a significant contribution to national economic growth.  It will also allow for a certain level of independence … for local authority to tap into the communities’ powerful reservoir of energy and common sense for local economic development,” Mr. Fagan noted.He said that effective governance was the pathway to economic development, both at the local and national levels.“We pride ourselves on being a transparent government, a government for the people, by the people and as such, we will continue to forge ahead with plans/legislation that will see citizens getting more involved in the governance process,” he stated.The conference staged under the theme: ‘The governance framework: the pathway to local economic development,” was part of a series being carried out across the island as part of Local Government and Community Development Month.The events are organised by the Social Development Commission (SDC) and the National Association of Parish Development Committee (NAPDEC), through sponsorship from National Integrity Action (NIA).last_img read more

Unifor says ruling on its Suncor Energy random drug testing injunction on

first_imgEDMONTON – A judge hearing an application from a union for an injunction to stop Suncor from starting random drug tests at oilsands facilities in northeastern Alberta is to make his ruling next Thursday.Unifor Local 707-A says such random testing would be a violation of the worker’s rights and privacy.The union says Suncor Energy already tests workers who are involved in accidents.Calgary-based Suncor has said random tests are needed to bolster safety at its work sites.Suncor and the union have been battling over random drug tests since 2012, including at arbitration hearings and in court.Unifor says it has also filed for leave to appeal to the Supreme Court an Alberta court ruling in September that was in favour of the energy giant.Unifor Local 707-A President Ken Smith said the case could set a precedent for other safety-sensitive workplaces.“Random drug testing of workers that have done nothing wrong is a violation of their basic rights,” Smith said Thursday in a statement.“We will work with Suncor to achieve the highest possible levels of workplace safety with education and prevention, not invasive medical procedures.”Suncor (TSX:SU) officials were not immediately available for comment.last_img read more

Scheer marks oneyear countdown to federal election with campaignstyle speech

first_imgOTTAWA – Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer marked the start of the one-year countdown to the 2019 election with a campaign-style speech that took direct aim at the Liberal government’s record — on everything from carbon taxes, to ethics, to budgetary deficits.Scheer even did an impression of the man he succeeded as leader of the Tories — former prime minister Stephen Harper — as he criticized the Trudeau government’s handling of the federal finances.“Remember those? Remember those teeny, tiny temporary deficits?” a smiling Scheer said Sunday inside an Ottawa convention centre as he held up his right thumb and index finger for the laughing crowd of party supporters.Scheer was referring to the Liberals’ 2015 pledge to run annual shortfalls of no more than $10 billion and to balance the books by 2019.After winning power from Harper, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau abandoned the vow, citing a weaker-than-expected economy and a need to invest in the country’s long-term growth. The Liberals produced a shortfall of $19 billion last year and have yet to provide a timetable to return to balanced books, despite the stronger economy.The deficits are expected to be central to the Tory attacks in the lead up to the next election on Oct. 21, 2019.Back in 2015, Harper frequently targeted Trudeau’s deficit promise while he was on the campaign trail. Harper, widely known for being serious, made a bit of a splash with meme-makers on social media when he made a similar teeny-weeny hand gesture about the Liberals’ shortfall pledge.“He’ll run, he says, a modest deficit, a tiny deficit — so small you can hardly see the deficit,” a sarcastic, hunched-over Harper said of Trudeau at the time.In his speech Sunday, Scheer ran through a list of other areas where he believes the Liberals have vulnerabilities.He focused on the Liberals’ centrepiece carbon tax plan — which he called a “revenue plan” to fill government coffers — and on the ethical issues that have led to reprimands from the federal ethics commissioner.Scheer noted how the ethics commissioner ruled Trudeau himself had contravened the Conflict of Interest Act in relation to his vacation on a private island in the Bahamas owned by the Aga Khan.He also pointed to the failed Energy East pipeline that was to transport crude east from Alberta — a project he vowed to revive, if elected — as well as an updated North American trade agreement he argued failed to bring any gains for Canada.In the “one-year sprint to the finish,” Scheer told his supporter the Liberals will throw everything they have at the Tories.“It’s going get worse, it’s going to get nasty,” said Scheer, who insisted Trudeau also has the news media and pundits on his side.Recent polls have suggested the Liberals are in a relatively good position ahead of the Tories and the NDP — but a lot can change in 12 months.The Tories have enjoyed bursts of momentum in recent months.First, the Conservatives won a key byelection in the Saguenay region of Quebec, a province that will be a critical battleground ahead of next year’s vote. Last month, former Liberal MP Leona Alleslev stunned colleagues by announcing she would cross the floor from the governing party to join their Tory rivals.“I may be a little late to the party — but better late, hopefully, than never,” Alleslev told the crowd Sunday before Scheer took the stage.In his speech, Scheer also underlined the encouraging emergence of new conservative governments in the provinces, including the two biggest ones: Ontario and Quebec.“We’ve got more and more allies in premiers’ offices across the country who will help us implement our vision of low taxes, smaller government and greater individual freedom for Canadians from coast to coast,” he said.The Conservatives, however, have also suffered setbacks.Maxime Bernier — one of Scheer’s rivals for the Tory leadership — left the party in the summer and called his former leader and colleagues “intellectually and morally corrupt” on his way out the door.The Quebec MP later launched his own federal conservative political party.Bernier’s move angered Conservatives, who have argued that adding another party on the right side of the political spectrum will split the vote and allow the Liberals to easily win another majority government.last_img read more

Highway maintenance workers reminding motorists to slow down in work zones

first_imgDAWSON CREEK, B.C. – Officials with highway maintenance contract firms in the Peace Region are reminding motorists to slow down and respect signs in work zones now that summer construction season has arrived.The Work Zone Safety Alliance says that between 2008 and 2017, 12 roadside workers were killed and 218 were injured and missed time from work as a result of being hit by a motor vehicle. To help keep roadside workers safe, the Alliance is launching the 2018 Cone Zone Campaign, an annual road safety awareness initiative to encourage safe driving behaviours around roadside workers.The Alliance says that safe driving behaviour helps to ensure that roadside workers such as first responders, road builders, municipal workers, landscapers, flag persons, tow truck operators and utility workers return home safe to their families. The organization has released a list of things that workers need drivers to do while travelling this summer:Pay attention to temporary road signs, traffic cones and directions given by a traffic control person.Leave your phone alone.Safely slow down before reaching a Cone Zone and obey the posted speed limit.Respect the roadside as a workplace.Reduce your speed when driving near work vehicles with flashing amber, red and blue lights. If the posted speed limit is greater than 80 km/h, slow to 70km/h. If the posted speed is less than 80 km/h, slow to 40 km/h. Drivers who fail to adjust their speed or who fail to move over may receive a $173 violation ticket and three penalty points.last_img read more

The car that hit Thakur’s vehicle had a ‘police’ sticker on its windscreen. The frontal portions of both the vehicles were damaged due to the accident. Following the incident, BJP workers went on a rampage ransacking the police vehicle. The incident sparked off tension among the locals. The BJP workers sat on the road and shouted slogans. Thakur, along with two others, was immediately rushed to Bongaon Sub-divisional hospital where they have been undergoing treatment. Thakur has received head injuries in the accident. According to hospital sources, all the injured victims are stated to be in a stable condition. CT scan was performed on Thakur immediately after he was admitted to the hospital. The Election Commission has sought a detailed report on the incident from the District Magistrate of the North 24-Parganas who happened to be the Chief Election Officer of the district.

BJP alleged that TMC leaders might have hatched a plan and demanded a thorough inquiry. The district TMC leaders, however, rubbished the allegation saying that BJP was trying to politicise the whole incident after they lost the political foothold in the area. Trinamool Congress district president Jyotipriya Mallick termed it as ‘an orchestrated incident’ and an attempt to win the sympathy of the people ahead of the fifth phase of elections when Bongaon goes to poll. “The car in which Thakur was travelling bears a registration of Uttar Pradesh. Five RSS people were travelling in the car. There was around Rs 25 lakh cash in the car. The BJP candidate from Bongaon was going to distribute the money among the people. The accident occurred when they were trying to flee after being chased by the locals,” Mallick told the reporters during a press conference in the district. Mallick also clarified that the other vehicle involved in the accident was not a police vehicle but was being used by the Central Forces. An FIR has been lodged against those who attacked the police who went to the spot following the incident.last_img read more

Ohio State club football optimistic about future

On a windy, overcast April afternoon at Ohio State, the cleats are laced up, footballs are tossed around and a new offensive scheme is being installed. New coaches and new players provide hope for the upcoming season. This is not the beloved Buckeye varsity football team, however, but the OSU club football team getting ready to enter its fourth season this fall. OSU club football began Spring Quarter 2008. A group of about 25 players made the team and stuck it out through the inaugural season in fall 2009. The team went 1-4 the first year, beating only Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, 28-12. The second year was a similar story for the club. A team of about 35 players competed for the Buckeyes and they made improvements from 2009, but the 2010 squad finished the year with a 2-4 record. Former club president and a player for three years, Nick Herrin, said that despite the tough times the team endured those first two years, it was the most fun he’s ever had playing football. “It was just 18 to 25 guys that just absolutely loved football,” said Herrin, a fourth-year in psychology. In the first two seasons, the team was not lacking in skill or talent, but was simply outmanned when compared to their opponents, Herrin said. “The first year of the club, we had 18 guys that were as good as anybody,” Herrin said. “We were just outnumbered. We go to Xavier and Miami and they’ve got 45 guys.” Despite going 3-8 in the first two years of the club’s existence, the players said the excitement increased prior to the 2011 campaign. Through tryouts, the team was able to increase its roster size to almost 50 players last season. As Herrin said, the increase in the number of players on the team helped. The Buckeyes finished the season 6-0 and ranked No. 3 in the final Intercollegiate Club Football Federation rankings. OSU practices and plays all of its home games at the Lincoln Tower Turf Field, which is located just south of Ohio Stadium. Safety George Shapiro, a third-year in industrial engineering and club president, said looking up at the fourth-largest football stadium in the country makes him feel like “the little brother” at times. He said he doesn’t mind though. “It’s still cool that it’s behind us like that,” Shapiro said. “It’s still very exciting to play in front of the Horseshoe.” The Buckeyes held tryouts last week and added 25 players to a team with 25 players from last season’s undefeated squad. Practice began Monday and will be two days each week until the end of the quarter. The team is making an offensive transition this year, similar to that of the varsity team under coach Urban Meyer. The scheme will be more of a spread offense after last year’s team was more run-oriented, Herrin said. Quarterback Jeff Porter, a second-year in operations management and club vice president, said the biggest thing for the team this spring is to get everyone together and start teaching the new guys. “We’re just trying to teach right now,” Porter said. “We’re just trying to get the new people caught up to what the veterans have learned already so that when it comes time for the fall, we can just jump right in.” Defensive back T.J. Thompson, a second-year in finance, said learning the new schemes is key, but getting everybody excited about playing is the most important thing. “This spring, we want to get everyone just excited for the autumn,” Thompson said. “Everyone just loves playing and has fun.” Looking forward to next season, coach Ray Giesige said it’s going to be hard to duplicate what last year’s team did because of the players that are graduating. Giesige played for the club team the previous two seasons before concussions forced him to switch to a coaching role. The fourth-year in sport and leisure studies said he wanted to stay involved and help continue what he helped start. “I decided I wanted to stick around and help out because it really is a great organization and we’re trying to do good things,” Giesige said. While he said he thinks the team has lost some important players from last year’s team, Giesige is looking to build off the 2011 season and is optimistic about the 2012 Buckeyes. “We lost some key contributors, but the great thing about here is there’s so many people that we can replace them at least a little bit on the talent side,” Giesige said. “We’re looking for people to step up right now and be leaders and if that happens, I think we’ll have a pretty good year.” read more

Klopp pokes fun at Super League reports

first_imgLiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has joked he would be in favour of European Super League because it would mean fewer games and more money.The German manager laughed off the notion of a European ‘Super League’ by joking it would be a boost for his team to play fewer games.Speaking after Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against Arsenal on Saturday, Klopp batted away the idea of the competition in his typically jovial style.“It sounds really nice because it sounds like much less games and much more money,” he said, according to FourFourTwo.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“I am completely fine with how the league football is at the moment. At least, it’s an idea [the ‘Super League’] that we don’t do immediately.”Klopp also claimed football governing bodies, FIFA and UEFA’s approach to proposed competition revamps are flawed because they do not seek sufficient input from clubs and other stakeholders.“I’m not even sure if somebody spoke about it, to be honest. It looks like all the other wonderful ideas of FIFA and UEFA,” he added.“They do them immediately, they don’t ask. And then you see, ‘Oh, okay, we have 20 games more and not more money’.”last_img read more
