Sinochem offer for Potash Corp is now unlikely

first_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp whatsapp KCS-content SINOCHEM, China’s largest fertiliser company, may struggle to get state financial backing for a takeover of Canada’s Potash Corp, making a deal unlikely, it emerged last night.China’s government has indicated it would prefer Sinochem to finance any takeover without credit from state banks, which is likely to put the transaction beyond the company’s reach.Sinochem may still consider seeking a minority stake, a deal that would be easier to fund.China’s Sinochem has been touted as the most likely company to come up with a competing bid to rival London-listed BHP Billiton’s $39bn (£24.6bn) hostile offer for Potash Corp. Sinochem could not be reached for immediate comment.

The broker expects the firm’s recent purchase of the Trafford Centre to give a four per cent lift to cash flow and dilute net asset value by around one per cent. It also predicts a realistic rental growth of six per cent over the next three years, well below management expectations of 12 per cent.AVIVAUBS rates the insurer “neutral” and has cut its 12-month target price by 40p to 430p. The broker believes that Aviva’s forecast-beating earnings last week were driven by one-off items rather than underlying performance. UBS also notes that the firm’s balance sheet is still stretched, which suggests that dilutive disposals might be in the pipeline, but nevertheless has raised its dividend growth forecast from five to six per cent.WPPGoldman Sachs rates the media group “buy” with a target price of £10.55. WPP’s full-year results last week were slightly ahead of the broker’s estimates, implying 8.5 per cent organic growth in the fourth quarter. Goldman believes the group can deliver growth of around seven per cent over the next few years, driven by digital media, with a 0.7 per cent margin improvement this year coupled with small acquisitions or buybacks.

888 secures igaming licence in Portugal

first_img29th January 2019 | By contenteditor 888 secures igaming licence in Portugal Topics: Legal & compliance Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Online Gambling 888 has been awarded an online casino licence by Portuguese regulator Regulação e Inspeção de Jogos (SRIJ) as the operator further expands its regulated footprint.The new licence will enable 888 to offer online slots, table games and a range of poker variants via its 888.pt site.The operator plans to use its poker licence to allow Portuguese players to play with Spanish counterparts, through the liquidity sharing agreement linking the markets, along with France – where 888 is no longer active – and Italy, which is yet to join the cross-border network. This will mark the first time 888 has pooled liquidity between European markets. The Portuguese licence comes after 888 was last month also granted approval to offer its online gambling services in the newly regulated Swedish market, which launched on January 1.It is also the 16th licence to be issued by SRIJ since the country’s regulated igaming market opened for business in June 2015. Itai Pazner, who was last week confirmed as the new chief executive of 888, commented: “This latest licence approval is another important step in 888’s growth strategy which is focused on diversification and expansion across regulated markets.“The launch of the flagship 888Casino brand in Portugal provides good growth opportunities for 888 and we are also very excited about the forthcoming launch of the group’s European interstate poker network which will pool players across Spain and Portugal and deliver them a first-class poker experience on 888’s new Poker 8 platform,” he added. In addition to Portugal and Sweden, 888 holds licences in the UK, Spain, Italy, Denmark, Ireland and Romania, as well as Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware in the US. 888 has been awarded an online casino licence by Portuguese regulator Regulação e Inspeção de Jogos as the operator further expands its regulated footprint.

There’s a debate raging as to whether shares are a buy on the cusp of a V-shaped recovery or a bear trap in the midst of a global recession. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

We’re long-term business focused investors at The Motley Fool, and we’d urge you to think that way, too. Enter Your Email Address See all posts by Owain Bennallack 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. I might not fancy buying the FTSE 100, for example, but if I were gloomy about the UK economy I especially wouldn’t want to own domestic plays – banks like Royal Bank of Scotland or estate agents like Foxtons. This means I have more options – and also more ways to be right.  Glass half-fullIt’s possible – likely – that some of the long-term holdings in my portfolio might suffer in a tough trading environment for the rest of 2020 and into next year.However, when I bought these companies, I did so knowing they’d face recessions as well as booms. I believe they are inherently superior businesses that can do better than their rivals in all economic environments, and thus deliver stronger returns over the long-term.This same logic holds true of long-term investments I make today.I recently bought shares in Davide Campari-Milano, the owner of spirits such as Campari, Aperol, and Grand Marnier. This Italian company has seen its shares hammered in the Covid-19 crisis, and I’ve no doubt 2020 will be a year to forget for the business.But do I think these brands will still be popular in ten or 20 years time?Absolutely.Provided the company survives (or is acquired at a premium) and the virus crisis ultimately fades, a company like this can be a great purchase today at the right price, even if the next year or so is rough.Pour me anotherAlternatively, if you’re an impatient sort, you can buy into firms prospering today even during the crisis.For example Admiral, Hargreaves Lansdown, Ocado and Tesco are all doing fine in 2020.The danger is you overpay for the comfort of not having to squirm your way through the rest of the year. It’s hardly a secret these firms are doing well. Hence that information and more may be in the price.However, investing is never an exact science. Ocado, say, could now be on an accelerated path towards higher earnings in a decade’s time thanks to the extra troubles in the retail sector today.And for all these companies, cash earned now – as opposed to losses sustained by other, less fortunate firms – has a real value. It can be reinvested into widening their business moats so that even when conditions normalise, they remain ahead of the competition.Thus the shares could yet be undervalued, depending on how you see such longer-term factors playing out.I think I’ve had enough…Even if I was more bearish, stock picking still gives me more options.center_img You don’t have to buy the market But the handy thing is I’m a long-term investor in stocks, not a short-term market timer buying and selling indices. Owain Bennallack | Saturday, 13th June, 2020 Owain owns shares in Hargreaves Lansdown and Davide Campari-Milano. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Admiral Group, Hargreaves Lansdown, and Tesco. But you also have the likes of you and me… Bears groan and note we still don’t have a good treatment for the virus, a vaccine won’t arrive in scale until next year at the earliest, economic growth has slumped to an unprecedented degree, unemployment has surged, Government support measures are unsustainable, and shares have already rallied despite all this.Who’s right?

Knight and Mott qualifiy for Apopka City Commission Seat #1 election

first_img The fisherman, Nik, and his partner may have had some motor trouble and with the motor off, the wind swamped them, as you can’t control the boat with just a trolling motor in that kind of wind…..maybe for awhile, until the battery started dying.

WaterAid has launched a new campaign celebrating the positive side of its work, with a film focusing on a 16-year-old student called Claudia, whose quality of life has been improved by gaining access to clean water and good sanitation.The film launched on 30th October and will run until 31st December. It asks for a £3 one-off donation, and is supported by social and digital activity as well featuring on Spotify.Created by Atomic London and shot by RSA (Ridley Scott Associates) in Lubunda, a village in northern Zambia, where people relied on dirty, dangerous and distant water sources before WaterAid brought clean drinking water and safe toilets.The film begins with a shot of a radio, positioned by a rain-soaked window, playing a UK weather report. It then moves to the village and Claudia’s walk to the community water tap.It shows Claudia singing Zoe’s Sunshine on a Rainy Day and her village community, now able to do everyday activities like laundry and farming, while also having time to chat and play because they no longer have to walk long distances to fetch clean water. Finally it highlights the fact that 650 million people still lack access to clean water and asks viewers to text a shortcode to give £3.Guy Bradbury, founding partner and executive creative director at Atomic London, said:“This was a really thought-provoking challenge for us, in moving away from the traditional format of charity advertising. Through this campaign we hope to make people feel positive, energised and willing to help continue this tremendous charitable effort worldwide. It’s been incredible learning about the progress that has been made and to see first-hand a community that has directly benefitted.”  258 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis28last_img read more

Malta: RSF files complaint in France in connection with Maltese journalist’s murder

first_img Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says News Malta is ranked 77th out of 180 countriesin RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index, after falling 30 places in the past two years. Organisation The journalists conducting this joint investigation, called the “Daphne Project,” then discovered emails between 17 Black and two Panama-based shell companies owned respectively by Mizzi and Schembri. The emails referred to money transfers of up to 2 million dollars for unspecified services. RSF and the Caruana Galizia family suspect that these transfers were used to pay these senior Maltese politicians for awarding this contract to Fenech, and that Caruana Galizia was murdered as a direct consequence of having drawn attention to this case of Maltese government corruption. Follow the news on Europe – Central Asia MaltaEurope – Central AsiaFrance Condemning abusesProtecting journalists CorruptionOrganized crimeImpunity Fenech was finally arrested on 15 November as he was trying to flee Malta and has been charged with complicity in Caruana Galizia’s murder. He reportedly named Schembri as the murder’s “real mastermind.” Following these developments, RSF and the Caruana Galizia family, who were assisted by the lawyer Emmanuel Daoud, discovered that Fenech owned major assets in France, including the Evian-les­Bains Hilton Hotel. Fenech also owns a race-horse stable in France that yielded several hundred thousand euros in profits from January 2015 to December 2017.  In the light of these facts, the plaintiffs think the national financial prosecutor’s officer or the Paris public prosecutor should open a preliminary or full judicial investigation. December 4, 2019 Malta: RSF files complaint in France in connection with Maltese journalist’s murder Caruana Galizia often wrote about Maltese political corruption on her “Running commentaries” blog and, in the course of investigating a public contract to build and operate a power station in Malta, she discovered the existence of a Dubai-based company called 17 Black that was being used for suspicious financial transfers.
