Underlying or organic growth — which strips out currency effects and acquisitions — at Nestle’s food and beverages unit stood at 5.7 per cent. “We have increased investment in our brands, people and capabilities and have prepared the company for a more challenging second half,” chief executive Paul Bulcke said in a statement. Jon Cox, an analyst at Kepler Capital Markets, said: “This is an excellent set of figures and a clear raise in guidance despite talk of reconfirmation.” Anglo-Dutch rival Unilever warned last week the second half would be tougher due to increased competition and higher raw material costs.

DraftKings signs with Kambi for US sports betting push

first_img Regions: US Email Address 20th June 2018 | By contenteditor Sports betting DraftKings has entered into a sportsbook partnership with Kambi as part of its effort to roll out sports betting services in the US. Under the multi-year deal, Kambi will provide various sports betting technology and services to DraftKings. Earlier this month, DraftKings announced its first US sports betting deal when it linked up with Resorts Atlantic City in New Jersey to offer such services in the state. New Jersey last week began accepting sports wagers after passing legislation to regulate sports betting, following last month’s Supreme Court ruling on the issue. Kristian Nylén, chief executive of Kambi, said: “I am delighted Kambi has been selected to partner DraftKings as it enters the sports betting market. “The Kambi technology is unique in that it empowers operators to innovate and create differentiated sports betting experiences, providing the flexibility which will be crucial in the developing US market.”Related article: DraftKings in sports betting deal with Resorts Atlantic City DraftKings has entered into a sportsbook partnership with Kambi as part of its effort to roll out sports betting services in the UScenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter DraftKings signs with Kambi for US sports betting push Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Sports betting Tech & innovationlast_img read more

Short-term gain, long-term pain: 2 FTSE 100 stocks I think could damage your wealth

Royston Wild | Sunday, 14th June, 2020 | More on: KGF TSCO 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images. DIY giant Kingfisher (LSE: KGF) has been one of the FTSE 100’s success stories following spring’s stock market crash. The blue chip’s share price has exploded 60% from the troughs struck in the middle of March. By comparison, the broader index has edged 15% over the same period.It’s not a mystery as to why Kingfisher has boomed. While much of the broader UK retail sector has struggled, sellers of home improvement and garden products have exploded. With lockdown measures now being rolled back, though, I fear that the Footsie firm will start to feel the heat again.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…The swift deterioration in economic conditions mean that demand for its goods from both individuals and trades is likely to come under pressure. A possibly protracted decline in the UK housing market threatens to put its revenues on the back foot again. The outlook is even worse in France than it is on these shores, too; sales there have continued to tank in the first half of 2020.Kingfisher’s share price has risen more recently, sure. But the 45% decline posted over the past five years illustrates its earnings prospects more accurately, in my opinion. This is a FTSE 100 stock I think should be avoided.One more FTSE 100 trap?Tesco (LSE: TSCO) is another Footsie firm whose share price bounced from the lows hit following the stock market crash. Investors ploughed into Britain’s biggest supermarket as a bet on its exceptional defensive qualities. Whatever economic and social upheaval we face as a society, we all still need to eat, right?A slew of industry data boosted dip buyers’ appetites, too. Kantar Worldpanel data, for instance showed UK grocery sales rocket 14.3% during the 12 weeks to 17 May. This was the biggest jump since records began a quarter of a century ago. And Tesco led the so-called Big Four operators with a 12.5% increase.Too riskyOn paper buying into food retailers is a great idea. But in practice buying Tesco shares is a dangerous idea. The groceries goliath may have outperformed cut-price operators Aldi and Lidl in the aforementioned 12-week period. This reflects in large part the FTSE 100 firm’s extensive online operations, demand for which naturally rocketed as the UK entered lockdown.However, with lockdown restrictions being eased and citizens getting out and about again, Tesco again faces loses swathes of its customers to the German discounters. In fact, with the UK facing the sort of economic meltdown not seen for three centuries (not my own view, but that of the Bank of England), it’s likely that it will continue losing market share to its cheaper rivals. The fact that Aldi is dipping its toe into the online grocery sector should come as further alarm, too.Now Tesco’s shares aren’t expensive. At current prices around 225p per share they trade on a forward price-to-earnings ratio of 15 times. They’re not cheap enough to tempt me in, though. This is a share whose long-term outlook remains cloudier today than ever.center_img Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE.

For the six months ended November 30, revenue rose 10% to £312.9m and adjusted operating profit increased 14.8% with growth in all geographical regions. It offers investors a 2.8% dividend yield. I’d like to buy and hold shares in this UK stock. “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. Kirsteen has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended PZ Cussons. 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. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img Two UK shares I’d like to buy in 2021 are THG (LSE:THG) and PZ Cussons. That’s because I think both companies are set for a bright future. THG is a progressive business, and I think it has all the makings of a future tech star. Its technology powers many successful companies. As the pandemic has accelerated demand for e-commerce, THG could be in the right place at the right time.A UK share I’d like to buy in 2021Under its THG Ingenuity division, it delivers an e-commerce package to big name customers. It leads them from product creation to delivery, covering every step in between. This part of the business could become a real money-spinner as it brings in recurring income and builds long-term contracts with customers all over the globe. THG has also recently partnered with Splitit to improve its payment systems and give additional options to its client base.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…It also builds cult brands from the ground up. It owns Europe’s number one online beauty retailer lookfantastic and currently sells a selection of hot brands, some of its own making, such as Myprotein. Owning such brands gives it wider margins, which is an important edge in such a competitive marketplace. It’s also known to rely on social media influencers to promote and move products, which is a scalable business model that companies are desperate for a piece of.Growing with acquisitionsTHG has been making impressive acquisitions and may well continue to do so as the economic climate is favourable for those companies looking to snap up bargain growth prospects. It only publicly listed in September, but its latest trading statement was upbeat and it has a £7bn market cap. It showed strong growth and predicts further revenue improvement this year of between 30% and 35%. Image source: Getty Images But a couple of worries I have regarding this stock are the current economic climate and the fact it sells prime brands. If the pandemic drags on, consumers might not have spare cash to spend and sales could fall. So far that doesn’t look to be the case. While unemployment rates are up, sales of luxury items continue to grow. According to Statista, revenue in the luxury goods market, which includes cosmetics, is projected to reach £250m this year with an annual growth of 4.8% to 2025.And if THG Ingenuity’s clients struggle and pause marketing spend, then it could see a decline in business. But once vaccines rollouts ramp up further, I’m hopeful the economy will bounce back quickly, and I think THG stands to benefit.Strong and steadyFTSE 250 firm PZ Cussons is another UK stock I’d like to buy for my Stocks and Shares ISA in 2021 because it’s a strong company with products that are staples on supermarket shelves. The pandemic brought excellent sales to its Carex hand wash, and its half-year results show a good performance. Nigeria is its largest single market, but it’s been a poor performer in recent years. The company is now streamlining its presence there. It’s incurred costs in this process, but is hopeful these will pay off in the future.

Felipe Contepomi trysaver prevents Munster scoring a classic try vs Toulon

first_imgSunday Oct 24, 2010 Felipe Contepomi trysaver prevents Munster scoring a classic try vs Toulon While this weekends rugby hasnt quite come to an end yet, here is a short video from the Heineken Cup round 2 game where Munster thought theyd scored a sensational Johne Murphy try, but were denied by Toulons Felipe Contepomi.The match got off to a great start as Toulon scored in the first minute of the game, a try that is included in the Best Tries from Round 2video that was posted on Friday.Munster came back though and in the 13th minute as Contepomi – arch nemesis from his Leinster days – attempted to put them in the lead with a penalty kick but missed, sparking a fantastic Munster counter attack from deep.Doug Howlett showed that theres life in the old dogs legs yet as he streaked down field and gave Murphy the space to sprint for the corner. Somehow Contepomi got across though to make a telling tackle that pushed Murphys leg onto the line. Many replays later, it was judged that he was out, a decision that is still being debated.In the end it didnt matter as Munster came out convincing 45-18 winners. Toulons Phillipe Saint-Andre played down the big win though, stating that the Top 14 is his teams priority right now.“The Magners League is not as important to Munster as the Heineken Cup but next week we play Stade Francais in front of 80,000 people and then we are away to Toulouse and Perpignan so, at the moment, the Top 14 is more important for us.”Captain Joe Van Niekerk was a little more complimentary and less matter of fact.“The experience of playing in the Heineken Cup for the first time against Munster was amazing… the scoreboard wasn’t so amazing,” said the eighthman.“Physically, Munster were really up to the challenge and you can see that they are a well-drilled side, with a lot of experience. We were playing probably the best side in Europe, the level of intensity was a lot more than in France,” he added.Many of you had requested this clip so while it happened a week ago, I’m sure you still have your own opinion about whether or not this ‘try’ should have been awarded. Great play nevertheless.

This offshore Villa is located in a prime locality along the East Coast Road in Chennai. Apart from the requirement of having private and semi-private spaces, we wanted the user to experience the coastal breeze along with the water, within his zone of proximity without having to access the beachfront. The concept behind this design relies on the spatial segmentation of semi-public areas which maximizes the virtual connectivity within the house through light which we call the exponent.Save this picture!© Dinesh JayavelTo achieve this experience, the design consists of a solid plane which protects the residence from the secondary southern heat, and the west consists of a solid volume which contains the private spaces – bedrooms. The rest forms the exponent which holds the semi-private space.Save this picture!© Dinesh JayavelThe detraction of volumes from the exponent felicitates the formation of open spaces which comprises of the swimming pool and the parking below. Successively, it helps the user from inside to interact with the space outside. The design and location of the swimming pool area is an important integral to this residence as it provides an exhilarating experience for the user who can appreciate the view of the beach being in the water or from the appending deck area.Save this picture!© Dinesh JayavelThe home-theater becomes the remnant volume in this process of detraction which in turn opens out to the terrace formed. It extends as a gathering space after an evening movie.Save this picture!SectionThe conceptualization of the semi-private area involves intersecting ‘L’ volumes. Their internal interaction and the interaction with outside are marked as a frame which accentuates the view. This setup facilitates a well-lit double height living space. The junction created by these ‘L’ volumes houses the vertical circulation elements, the lift and the staircase. The staircase as a structure enhances the aesthetic quality of the living space and promotes visual interaction within the house.Save this picture!© Dinesh JayavelThe void frame on the north complements the solid frame introduced on the south side and it adds to the overall form of the design.Save this picture!2nd Floor PlanThere are two forms of water which becomes part of this residence which completes the design. One is the internal form, which is from the infinity type swimming pool and the other is the external form which is collected from the inverted roof. Both water forms are collected onto a small ‘mere’ which adds to the aesthetic value of the landscape at the entry. The idea was to associate water as an entity which flows from all the levels, inviting every individual who enters this residence. Likewise, an individual at the entry, to his vista will be able to relate the water at each level – The ‘mere’ – landscape water body, the “Reflected Swimming pool water” which is casted on the ceiling and “Gutter Water” from the inverted roof as it rains or overflows from tank.Save this picture!© Dinesh JayavelProject gallerySee allShow less2017 RIBA Stirling Prize Shortlist Announced for UK’s Best New BuildingArchitecture NewsWallan Veterinary Hospital / CrosshatchSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Dinesh Jayavel Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/876103/villa-in-chennai-inventarchitects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeInventarchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesChennaiIndiaPublished on July 19, 2017Cite: “Villa in Chennai / Inventarchitects” 19 Jul 2017.

Kids, which helps disabled children, was chosen from 200 charity applicants. It is the first UK charity to be selected by the no-frills airline.The charity, whose income for 2008/09 was £7.1m, will use the money to provide more short breaks for disabled children and their carers.Kevin Williams, chief executive of Kids, said the charity was satisfied that both the calendar and Ryanair were reputable. He said that, contrary to some reports last year, Ryanair staff were not forced to take part.“It’s great when a bit of fun can serve such a serious purpose,” said Williams.Eight hundred of Ryanair’s 4,000 cabin crew applied to pose for the 2010 calendar. AHomelessness organisation Dublin Simon Community and respite care charity Angels Quest have previously benefited from sales of the calendar.www.kids.org.uk About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Ukrainian journalist dies of head injuries sustained in attack

Combatting impunity for violence against journalists should be a matter of the utmost urgency for the Ukrainian authorities, RSF said.Komarov was well known for his investigative reporting on corruption in Cherkasy and had been the target of several murder attempts in recent years. An investigation was opened into the brutal attack – now a murder – in the city centre on 4 May but it remains unpunished.Komarov’s death comes less than two weeks after cameraman Vadym Makaryuk was attacked and badly beaten while filming a violent clash between traders, war veterans and far-right activists in a market in the northeastern city of Kharkov on 7 June, with the result that he was hospitalized in a critical condition with cerebral haemorrhaging. His life is no longer in danger but he has amnesia and his right hand is paralysed.“Vadym Komarov’s murder highlights the alarming level of violence that journalists face in Ukraine and the urgent need to combat impunity for this violence,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “It is time to get to grips with this problem in order to prevent a climate of intimidation from taking hold. We call on the authorities to do everything possible to ensure that this murder and the other attacks against journalists do not remain unpunished.”After falling for several years, cases of violence against journalists in Ukraine began to rise again in 2018. According to the Institute of Mass Information (IMI), an RSF partner organization, at least six journalists were beaten or injured during the first five months of 2019, 12 were threatened and 48 were subjected to various forms of obstruction including assault, smashing of equipment and denial of access. Most of these attacks went unpunished, as did well-known journalist Pavel Sheremet’s shocking murder in Kiev in 2016.Ukraine is ranked 102nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.
