But Comet sales plummeted 7.3 per cent as tough competition, lukewarm consumer sentiment and poor weather took its toll. Kesa said that the pre-Christmas snowfall in the UK and continental Europe during its key trading period, knocked at least two per cent off sales.The company also said that sales had “softened” since the VAT rise to 20 per cent. Kesa, which also runs market leader Darty in France, said it would respond to the challenges at Comet by cutting costs, improving its website and refocusing stores on its most profitable categories.The retailer said full-year adjusted profit before tax would be towards the lower end of analysts’ forecasts range of €98 to €119m (£82m to £99.5m). Chief executive Thierry Falque-Pierroton said there were no plans to spin off Comet or to switch the company’s listing to France, as had been suggested by analysts. He added: “We remain confident in our strategy and committed to our plans to implement the Darty concept in all our markets and we have in place a number of additional measures to improve revenue and reduce costs.”Matthew McEachran of Singer Capital Markets said: “Trade did pick up in the week after Christmas, once the snow melted.” last_img read more

Is it finally time to buy shares in Barclays for that fat dividend?

reqtqoas

first_imgThe shares bottomed out at about 90p in the spring of 2009 after plunging almost 90% in the wake of the financial crisis back then. But by the autumn of that year, the price had rebounded to around 335p. Sadly, that’s as high as they’ve been since. The chart shows a lot of swinging up and down, but with a clear trend lower. The underlying business has been turning around, but the stock hasn’t.And I don’t believe the shares in Barclays will handbrake-turn and embark on a sustained uptrend anytime soon. Because of the firm’s inherent cyclicality, I see a great deal of risk that the shares could plunge again at some point and limited potential for them to rise. Therefore, for me, the dividend is unattractive. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

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. Enter Your Email Address Today’s full-year results report from banking giant Barclays (LSE: BARC) revealed to us an increase in the total shareholder dividend for the year of just over 38%, to 9p per share.City analysts following the firm have pencilled in a further lift in the payment for 2020 of between 7% and 8%. Meanwhile, with the share price close to 176p, the forward-looking dividend yield is running around 5.5%.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…But that’s not the only indicator suggesting decent value. The price-to-book value sits around 0.5, and the earnings multiple is below eight. Is it finally time to buy shares in Barclays to lock in that stream of generous and growing dividends?Trading wellAfter all, the company is trading well. Overall profit before tax came in almost 26% higher than the year before at £4.4bn. But that did include a massive provision for Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) claims of £1.4bn, much higher than the £400m allowed in 2018. There was a last-minute surge in applications because of the deadline for claims, which occurred during the period.One day — and it looks like being soon — the whole PPI scandal will be behind the banking sector. Maybe that’s another reason to pick up a few shares in Barclays now. The figure for profit before tax, ignoring litigation and conduct costs, was £6.2bn, up from £5.7bn in 2018. Perhaps that’s a good indicator of the underlying progress Barclays has been making.Looking ahead, chief executive James E Staley said in the report he expects future earnings to “drive increased returns to shareholders.”  He anticipates a “significant reduction” in charges related to litigation and conduct from the current trading year onwards. Staley said the company intends to pay a progressive ordinary dividend supplemented with additional cash returns to shareholders, “including share buybacks.”So, why not pile in now and buy some shares? After all, the garden looks rosy. However, there’s something that bothers me about the Barclays share price, and it’s keeping me away from the stock.The problem, as I see itIndeed, one popular share research website has the firm listed as a turnaround opportunity. And the financial fortunes of the company have been getting better for some time. But the improvements in the business have not been reflected in the share price chart.

Saints and sinners: The weekend’s talking points

reqtqoas

first_imgJust something without the words ‘sweet’ and ‘Caroline’ in it.Noisy lot: Kiwi fans at QBE Stadium where the song that shall not be named reared its head again LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS For that matter, could Jack Clifford get back on the scene after returning from his shoulder surgery? A try-saving scramble tackle on Joe Simpson at Wasps reminded us of what we’ve been missing. Questions, questions. It will be fascinating to see how things pan out.Tree feller: Bath’s Sam Underhill cuts down Saints centre Rob Horne at Franklin’s Gardens (Getty)Beau masterA few chinks had recently appeared in New Zealand’s armour, or so we had been led to believe. On Saturday they made a nonsense of such talk, dismissing a Springbok side that had gone unbeaten all year by 57-0 at Albany.It was the All Blacks’ biggest-ever victory over South Africa and of their 24 more emphatic Test wins, only the 60-0 rout of Ireland in 2012 can even begin to compare.Whether or not Beauden Barrett kicks his goals is utterly irrelevant when he and the All Blacks play like this. The Hurricanes pivot was involved in the pick of the eight tries, tearing up the pitch to catch up with Nehe Milner-Skudder after he got an interception. Barrett took the pass from the winger and then returned the favour with a delicious reverse pass that foxed the two covering defenders.It was a wow moment but just one of many on a sobering day for the rest of world rugby.Wow factor: Beauden Barrett’s reverse pass sets up Nehe Milner-Skudder for a try against the BoksFolau’s hot streakIsrael Folau is well and truly over his quiet spell. Against Argentina in Canberra, the Wallaby full-back grabbed his fourth try double of the year following braces against Fiji, Scotland and Italy in June. FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HERE He bagged ten tries from 15 Tests in 2013 and he’s matched that tally from just seven Tests so far this year. One more score will give him the outright Wallaby record for a calendar year that he currently shares with Lote Tuqiri (ten tries from 12 Tests in 2004).The Pumas led 13-10 at half-time but yet again faded to lose 45-20. They missed 34 tackles.You have to wonder whether the demanding travel schedule is playing a part and equally, the strength of their bench is clearly not what it could be, because so many of their players are engaged in European club rugby and not available under current Argentinian policy.Since beating South Africa in Salta last year, they have lost all but two of their 15 Tests – with the wins coming against Japan and Georgia. They are a much better team than recent results suggest but should they think again about allowing off-shore players to represent them? Yes.Scoring for fun: Israel Folau dots down against the Pumas, one of his ten Test tries in 2017 (Getty)Dragons deliverFor the first time in eight years, the Dragons were the only Welsh region to register a victory. It came courtesy of a 21-8 defeat of Connacht that was even better than it sounds, because injuries to Tyler Morgan and Zane Kirchner prevented a makeshift back-line from building on a 21-3 half-time advantage.The first try was a beauty, with Kirchner and Jack Dixon inter-linking, Elliot Dee offloading ‘round the back’ and Harri Keddie putting Hallam Amos away down the left.Having a new (artificial) pitch is doing wonders for the now WRU-owned region and let’s hope local supporters get behind them in numbers after so many years of mediocrity.Joy: Elliot Dee and Lloyd Fairbrother after the Dragons’ first win since January (Huw Evans Agency)The SinnersEnergy lackingFor all the commendable community coaching work that took place in the Philadelphia region last week, Premiership Rugby’s latest excursion stateside must be viewed as a flop.The attendance of 6,271 for the Newcastle-Saracens match at the Talen Energy Stadium was well short of expectations and unfortunately the match was a stinker.Chris Wyles’s early try aside, there was little to inspire as both sides struggled to handle a sweaty ball or come to terms with the heat and humidity.John Mitchell, who quit as USA coach in May to take a job with South Africa’s Blue Bulls, has argued that taking occasional Premiership matches to rugby backwaters like Pennsylvania is a “waste of time” and that the focus should be on areas where the game is better established.Certainly the quality of the match becomes ever more important if you are dealing with a new audience, so what a pity that those Americans who attended or tuned in at the weekend didn’t see rather more razzle-dazzle.Tasty: at least the cheesesteaks were good in Philadelphia, as Newcastle’s Juan Pablo Socino discoversRash momentLondon Irish have come back to earth with a bump since upsetting Harlequins in round one of the Premiership. A heavy defeat at Exeter is one thing, a trouncing at Sale quite another.Scotland international Blair Cowan didn’t help their cause at the AJ Bell Stadium when, having already been sin-binned for a technical offence, he returned to stick a forearm on Jono Ross’s head as the Sale man lay prone at a ruck.A senseless action that saw Cowan sent off and Irish hampered for the remaining dozen minutes.Bad day: Blair Cowan tackles Sale’s Mike Haley as the Exiles went down heavily in Cheshire (Getty)It’s not sweet to meEnough now, I’m starting to crack. The endless playing of Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline at sports venues is wearing thin.According to Wikipedia, the Sixties hit is played after every Carolina Panthers home win, by Northern Ireland’s football team, by Castleford Tigers, Sydney Swans, Oxford United and Twenty20 matches.It’s certainly popped up at rugby events plenty of times, including New Zealand’s match with South Africa at the weekend. Well, it’s time to change the record. How about Happy House by Siouxsie and the Banshees? She even wore a Harlequin outfit in the video. Courtney Lawes (in exceptional form) would give them that, so too Maro Itoje, should Jones decide to move either from their usual second-row position. Or could Tom Curry provide that third jumper?center_img The battle of the Sams, Simmonds v Underhill, niggle at the Ricoh, the All Blacks’ near perfection, Israel Folau’s hot streak, Dragons firing and Philadelphia spectacle goes flat The SaintsHandbags with edge After the drabness of the Newcastle-Saracens match (see below), how refreshing to see the bite and niggle of the Wasps-Harlequins clash at the Ricoh.Perhaps it’s contentious to say so, but the contretemps between James Haskell and Joe Marler was compelling theatre, more so because such outward aggression (by Haskell) is rarely seen in this modern era of multiple camera angles, TMOs and unforgiving disciplinary panels.In short, Marler provoked the Wasps flanker by tugging on his scrum cap and then squirting water at him, and Haskell wasn’t one for turning a blind eye. Marler was fortunate that Haskell alone was yellow-carded.The incident was part of a fantastic match of thrust and counter-thrust and once again, Quins centre Joe Marchant gave notice that he’s ready to challenge for England’s No 13 shirt.Just as impressive, Marcus Smith, Quins’ 18-year-old fly-half, once more looked completely at ease on a demanding stage. He won Man of the Match and you start to wonder just what this season might hold in store for him.No ordinary Joe: Quins centre Joe Marchant shows his pace in the 24-21 success at the Ricoh (Getty)Super SamsWe’re two years out from the next World Cup, so who should get first dibs on the England No 7 shirt? There’s a hell of a battle going on.Shooting up the list is Sam Simmonds, who isn’t even playing seven at Exeter but instead is used at No 8 where he can get his hands on the ball more often.The 22-year-old has the pace of a threequarter – he played centre until the age of 17 – and the strength of a back-row, and his explosive power from the base is remarkable.He’s already made more than 50 carries in the Aviva Premiership this season and at nearly four metres a carry, he’s giving Exeter the go-forward we’ve come to associate with Thomas Waldrom.But Waldrom wouldn’t have made the defender-scattering clean breaks that Simmonds has, and when you throw in the younger man’s four tries and one assist, it’s hard to imagine a more impressive start to a season.Admiring Simmonds’s step that helped bring him his second try at Worcester on Saturday, ex-England lock Mouritz Botha likened him to a bigger version of Schalk Brits.Powerful package: Sam Simmonds slides in for his second try at Worcester (Action Plus/Getty)Who knows whether Simmonds is in Eddie Jones’s thoughts. It’s not as if the England coach is short of options.Sam Underhill, 21, made his Premiership debut for Bath and produced what Ugo Monye called “one of the most impressive destructive performances I’ve seen. Any kids listening to this, watch that performance – it’s picture perfect”.Underhill made 23 tackles and officially one turnover in less than 70 minutes, but the thumping intensity of his hits was worth several more turnovers because he sometimes causes the ball-carrier to spill the ball.Both he and Simmonds are around 6ft in height and neither are presently lineout options. With the similarly built Billy Vunipola installed at No 8, the issue for England is whether, at a time when the lineout is assuming greater importance, they are willing to forego a tall, athletic jumper in the back row – as they once had with Tom Croft.

Springboks come good against the Wallabies at Loftus

reqtqoas

first_imgSaturday Aug 28, 2010 Springboks come good against the Wallabies at Loftus Victor Matfield celebrated his 100th Test match in style as the Springboks ended their four match losing streak with a 44-31 win over the Wallabies at Loftus Versfeld in what was a thrilling Tri Nations match. Australia came out firing as they streaked off to a 14-0 lead after just five minutes, silencing the Pretoria crowd. The Boks bounced back but were later trailing 21-7 in what proved to be a frantic, free flowing Test. Five tries were scored in the first 15 minutes. The game was finely poised at 28-24 to the Wallabies as they went into the second half, but they only managed another three points, while South Africa scored in the 49th minute through the returning Francois Steyn, and sealed the win later with a JP Pietersen try, their fifth of the match. It was a much improved display from the Springboks, who ironically defended really well throughout most of the match. The Wallabies looked lethal on attack at times though, especially early on, finding gaps and slipping through a little too easily for the home sides liking. In the end the match produced nine tries and the South African win meant that the Wallabies still havent won on the Highveld since 1963.

African Swine Fever Continues to Spread in Vietnam, South Africa

reqtqoas

first_img African Swine Fever Continues to Spread in Vietnam, South Africa SHARE SHARE Government officials in Vietnam say the country has culled more than 1.2 million pigs infected with African Swine Fever. The virus is continuing to spread quickly through Southeast Asia. Vietnam’s 95 million people consume most of its 30 million pigs domestically. Pork makes up 75 percent of the total meat consumption in Asia. The virus has spread into 29 Vietnamese provinces. Many Vietnamese provinces weren’t able to cull pigs properly once the outbreak got going. Some of the biggest challenges to culling pigs in Vietnam were a lack of funding and available space to bury the dead pigs.In March, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization advised Vietnam to declare the ASF outbreak a national emergency. Meantime, a fourth South African province has reported an ASF outbreak. The affected areas in South Africa are quarantined and investigations are underway to trace the origin of the outbreaks and identify other farms that may be infected.Source: NAFB News Service Previous articleCash Rental Rates Stay Mostly Steady in 2019Next articlePerdue Urging Japan to Reach a Quick Trade Deal with the U.S. NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News African Swine Fever Continues to Spread in Vietnam, South Africa Facebook Twitter By NAFB News Service – May 14, 2019 last_img read more
