HSBC warns over UK banking exodus

first_img KCS-content HSBC warns over UK banking exodus A LITTLE-KNOWN private equity firm stunned Wall Street by taking over troubled fast food chain Burger King in a $4bn (£2.6bn) deal yesterday.Analysts began talking about a potential wave of takeovers in the restaurant sector after 3G Capital, a New York-based vehicle run by three Brazilian billionaires, agreed a $24-per-share offer with the company’s board. The generosity of the 46 per cent premium to Burger King’s undisturbed share price surprised many market participants.3G will take on the eatery operator’s £750m debt pile and keep chief executive John Chidsey as co-chairman alongside 3G partner Alex Behring. Headhunters will be searching for a fresh candidate to succeed Chidsey as chief executive.3G said it had raised financing from JPMorgan Chase and Barclays Capital. The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter.Burger King, which returned to public ownership in 2006 after a spell under the control of private equity groups TPG, Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital, has struggled during America’s lengthy downturn.Its reliance on working class, male customers meant soaring joblessness hit the franchise hard. Last week Burger King said worldwide sales were down 2.3 per cent this year, with sales in the US down 3.9 per cent. In contrast, bitter rival McDonald’s grew its global sales 4.8 per cent in the second quarter, with US sales up 3.7 per cent. Burger King has been trying to fight back with thicker, steak-like premium products.Jake Bartlett, an analyst at Susquehanna Financial Group, said: “This buyer has a more optimistic view of the future than most of the Street does on the stock. Everyone was just shocked to see the bid at nine times 2010 earnings.”Tom Forte, an analyst at Telsey Advisory Group, predicted a “wave of mergers & acquisitions” for the casual dining space. Forte named Mexican grill Brinker International and ribs restaurant Ruby Tuesday as targets.“We won’t have any companies left to cover pretty soon,” he said. “The restaurant sector is an interesting space for private equity looking for companies to generate free cashflow.” whatsapp Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼center_img Share Thursday 2 September 2010 8:43 pm whatsapplast_img read more

No savings at 40? I reckon these tips could help you retire rich

first_img If you are in your 40s, you are in a powerful place. By now, there’s a head full of wisdom sitting on your shoulders and you are still young enough to do almost anything you want with it.Let me suggest that you turn your attention to building up a nest egg for your retirement, among other things you may want to do. After all, the new full State Pension is a pitiful £175.20 per week right now. And I can’t imagine the government being flush enough to raise its real spending power by the time you retire.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…Stressed government financesIn fact, it could go the other way. Perhaps you’ve noticed that the government’s finances are in a vulnerable state right now. The coronavirus crisis has piled on top of the credit-crunch from the noughties. And government borrowing has gone through the roof.If all that sounds a bit grim, it is. Usually, when governments find themselves in a mess over money, they often aim to inflate their way out of the mammoth debts that pile up. And that’s one thing I’m expecting in the years ahead – inflation. That’s certainly what happened following the credit crunch, for example. I clearly recall my household expenses doubling in short order.Meanwhile, I’ve got to wait until the age of 67 before collecting my State Pension. Yet, my father got his at 65. You may need to wait longer than me. And it’s possible for the goalposts to move for both of us before we get there. Indeed, there’s a clear trend for the state retirement age to move further away – and stressed government finances will probably only make thing worse.The case for building a second income in retirement to use alongside your State Pension is stronger than ever. And if you are 40, you’ve got the best part of three decades to build up a nest egg. Even if you are starting from scratch today, that’s enough time if you put your mind to it. Here’s how I’d proceed:A three-step planFirstly, I’d cultivate the savings habit. Saving a regular monthly sum is essential to building wealth over time. You can set up a standing order that takes the money out of your current account before anything else. Treat that savings expense as untouchable. If need be, you can scale down your lifestyle a little to accommodate it.Secondly, I’d look for ways of making the saved money work hard for me. The key to building wealth is to compound your money by ploughing all the interest and gains back in so that they also earn a return and so on. To me, there’s only one way to go. The stock market has delivered greater returns over time than most other asset classes such as property, bonds, and cash savings. So its shares and share-backed investments all the way for me.Thirdly, I’d aim to hold my investments in tax-efficient wrappers such as a Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) or a Stocks and Shares ISA.

3 FTSE 100 ‘coronavirus stocks’ I’d buy right now

first_img 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.

Rupert Hargreaves | Friday, 24th July, 2020 | More on: AZN HLMA RKT Enter Your Email Address Many FTSE 100 stocks have suffered significantly in the coronavirus pandemic. However, some companies have seen an increase in the demand for their products over the past six months. As such, now may be the time to buy a basket of these companies, ahead of a possible second wave later this year. Here are three FTSE 100 coronavirus stocks that might be worth considering today. 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…FTSE 100 coronavirus stocksAstraZeneca (LSE: AZN) is working flat out to produce a vaccine to help control the pandemic. It has already started production on Oxford University‘s leading candidate, which is still in its early phases of testing. If the treatment is given the green light, AstraZeneca could benefit significantly. The FTSE 100 pharmaceutical group could see its sales and profits jump as virtually every country in the world is currently clamouring for a treatment. This wouldn’t be a one-off for the group. Increased profits would allow Astra to reinvest more cashback into research and development. That could help improve the company’s growth for many years to come. Therefore, there’s a strong chance investors buying this FTSE 100 coronavirus stock today could see high total returns in the years ahead.HalmaHalma (LSE: HLMA) has reported a surge in demand for its health and safety kit over the past six months. This has helped the company outperform many of its FTSE 100 peers, which have seen sales fall. Once again, this could help the company’s growth going forward. Halma has an excellent track record of buying up smaller businesses. It then integrates them into the wider group where they can benefit from its overall size and scale. This approach has helped the company generate some of the best total returns for shareholders in the FTSE 100 over the past decade. Over the next few years, it may even accelerate its acquisition programme. Smaller peers may struggle in the current economic environment. This may mean they’re more susceptible to a takeover from Halma. It could use its excess profits generated over the past six months to fund an acquisition spree.What’s more, considering the FTSE 100’s company’s performance in the first half of this year, a second wave of coronavirus may help support the group’s strategy. Long-term investors could be well rewarded here. Reckitt BenckiserReckitt Benckiser (LSE: RB) has also seen the demand for its products rise over the past six months. As one of the world’s leading producers of disinfectant products, the FTSE 100 company struggled to keep up with demand at the beginning of the crisis. However, over the past few months, management has got to grips with the situation. As a result, the company is well-placed to meet the world’s higher demand for cleaning and disinfectant products. Like the two companies listed above, the group may also be able to use profits produced over the past six months to help support growth in the years ahead. Following a series of strategic missteps, Reckitt’s growth was floundering at the beginning of the year. But it now looks as if the company is back on track thanks, in part, to the pandemic. Only time will tell if the business has really put its problems behind it, but with its top-line set to grow significantly this year, it seems likely. 3 FTSE 100 ‘coronavirus stocks’ I’d buy right now Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: The Motley Fool Share prices are sliding again as Covid-19 fears mount. And there’s growing talk of a second stock market crash as lockdowns spread across Europe. At time of writing, the FTSE 100 has fallen to 5,643, erasing a chunk of its post-March recovery.These are unnerving and unprecedented times, and you can hardly blame investors for being nervous. At moments like these, it’s worth listening to somebody who has seen it all before. US billionaire investor Warren Buffett has been through plenty of stock market crashes, and knows the importance of keeping a cool head when the heat is on.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…Buffett is famous for treating a stock market crash as a buying opportunity, urging investors to ‘get greedy while others are fearful’. As he once said: “Bad news is an investor’s best friend. It lets you buy a slice of America’s future at a marked-down price.” Not just America’s future, but the UK’s future as well.I’m seizing this stock market crash opportunityEverywhere I look, UK shares are trading at marked-down prices. However, investors shouldn’t pick up stock indiscriminately. Some sectors are taking the pandemic particularly hard. Notably the airlines, cruise liners, bricks and mortar retailers, and the leisure and hospitality industry. Others are doing better, such as technology stocks, defensive utilities and the healthcare sector.So beware of loading up on bargains, this could be a time to buy quality stocks like Unilever. I’d aim to buy and hold for the long term, rather than to make a fast buck. As Buffett said: “Time is the friend of the wonderful business, the enemy of the mediocre.” That remains true, even if we get another stock market crash.I am also resisting the temptation to dump my portfolio and exit the market. Again, Buffett said that during the 2008 financial panic it would have been foolish to sell shares in solid businesses with good long-term prospects: “True, any one of them might eventually disappoint, but as a group they were certain to do well.” You just have to give it time.Stay cool like BuffettThe pandemic may be unprecedented, but the stock market crash isn’t. Markets correct all the time, but the long-term trajectory is upwards. In 2018, Buffet listed some of the political and economic traumas the US has been through since 1942, including “a long period of viral inflation, a 21% prime rate, several controversial and costly wars, the resignation of a president, a pervasive collapse in home values, and a paralysing financial panic”. His conclusion? “All engendered scary headlines; all are now history.”One day, the coronavirus maybe history too. Let’s hope so. Dumping all my stocks today in case markets crash would suggest the world of investing is in peril. Despite current uncertainties, I don’t think the situation is quite that bad.I doubt Buffett does either.last_img read more

Los episcopales de la localidad han brindado también un ministerio de presencia en Cannon Ball, Dakota del Norte, y sus alrededores, entre ellos el campamento de Oceti Sakowin. La bandera episcopal ondeó constantemente allí hasta la reciente decisión de cerrarlo debido al peligroso tiempo invernal y al temor a una desastrosa inundación en la primavera. Foto de John Floberg vía Facebook.[Episcopal News Service – Linthicum Heights, Maryland] El  Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia episcopal, en el último día de su reunión aquí del 5 al 8 de febrero, reafirmó su solidaridad con la Nación Sioux de Roca Enhiesta [Standing Rock].Los miembros del Consejo dijeron que la Iglesia se compromete a “seguir respaldando la acción y el liderazgo de la Nación Sioux de Roca Enhiesta como la sal y la luz de la nación en su firme defensa de la sacralidad del agua, de la tierra y de los otros recursos [que] nos recuerda a todos nosotros el sacro llamado a la fidelidad”.Encomiaron a la Iglesia Episcopal y a sus asociados ecuménicos [por su participación] en las acciones que la Nación Sioux de Roca Enhiesta llevó a cabo para la protección del agua. El Rdo. John Floberg, miembro del Consejo y sacerdote encargado de las congregaciones episcopales en el lado de Dakota del Norte de Roca Enhiesta, suscitó el elogio específico del Consejo, así como “los cientos de laicos y clérigos episcopales que respondieron a su llamado de apoyo”.El Consejo respaldó también la convocatoria de la Nación Sioux de Roca Enhiesta a una marcha el 10 de marzo en Washington, D.C. La resolución decía que la marcha era “con el fin de proclamar la continua preocupación por nuestras aguas y tierras sagradas, así como para conminar a nuestro gobierno a cumplir todas las obligaciones pertinentes contraídas por Estados Unidos con todas las tribus federalmente reconocidas”. La tribu ya había comenzado a organizar la marcha, en la que Floberg ha llamado a los episcopales a participar.La Iglesia Episcopal ha abogado junto a la nación sioux en lo tocante al Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas desde el verano de 2016. Los episcopales de la localidad también han brindado un ministerio de presencia en Cannon Ball, Dakota del Norte, y en sus inmediaciones, el punto donde se proyecta hacer el cruce [del oleoducto] y donde se han concentrado los grupos de protectores del agua.El obispo primado Michael Curry le dice al Consejo Ejecutivo el 8 de febrero que los episcopales deben participar en la plaza pública pero que deberían afinar su participación en los valores de Jesús. “Esa es la manera en que evitamos que nos cataloguen como simplemente otra parte interesada, porque no procuramos nuestro propio interés”, afirmó. Foto de Frank Logue vía Twitter.La decisión del Consejo se produjo 24 horas después de que el Ejército de EE.UU. anunciara de que cancelaba el estudio del impacto medioambiental que prometiera comenzar hace dos meses. Por el contrario, autorizará la construcción de la fase final del oleoducto. El anuncio fue el último de una serie de maniobras administrativas y legales sobre el oleoducto que está casi terminado.La obra que falta del oleoducto lo haría pasar por debajo del río Misurí a la altura del lago Oahe, a corta distancia del límite norte de la reserva de Roca Enhiesta. La compañía del oleoducto montó una plataforma de perforación muy cerca del punto de cruce propuesto, que se encuentra río arriba de las fronteras de la reserva. La tribu tiene derechos acordados de agua, caza y pesca. Los obreros ya han perforado los orificios de entrada y salida para el cruce  y el tramo del oleoducto que conduce al lago [desde los yacimientos petrolíferos] ya está lleno de petróleo a la espera de la conclusión del proyecto, según informa la Associated Press.El cuerpo de Ingenieros del Ejército de EE.UU. dijo el verano pasado que el paso [del oleoducto por debajo del lago] no tenía ningún impacto significativo sobre el medioambiente. Esa determinación provocó meses de protesta que comenzaron con un grupo de adolescentes que viven en las reservas de Roca Enhiesta y del Río Cheyenne.El 4 de diciembre, la entonces secretaria adjunta del Ejército para Obras Civiles, Jo-Ellen Darcy, revocó esa decisión y dijo que el Cuerpo de Ingenieros llevaría a cabo una revisión completa del impacto medioambiental. Ese tipo de estudio suele demorarse hasta dos años. Energy Transfer Partners, la compañía constructora del oleoducto, acusó a la administración del entonces presidente Obama de aplazar el asunto hasta que él abandonara el cargo. El Cuerpo de Ingenieros finalmente inició el estudio el 18 de enero, dos días antes de que Obama cesara en su puesto.Hace dos semanas, en una de las primeras de una serie de decisiones presidenciales, el presidente Donald Trump pidió la rápida aprobación de la fase final del oleoducto, diciendo específicamente que el Cuerpo de Ingenieros debía reconsiderar rápidamente el estudio del impacto medioambiental. El anuncio del Ejército el 7 de febrero cumplió con la demanda de Trump.La Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, dice el 8 de febrero, durante la reunión del Consejo Ejecutivo, que la “disposición del presidente Donald Trump de poner a unos grupos de estadounidenses contra otros para ver la sociedad como una partida de suma cero en el cual para que una parte suba, la otra debe caer” es peligrosa porque los cristianos que adopten esa táctica “traicionan la esencia de su fe”. Foto de Frank Logue vía Twitter.La Red Episcopal de Política Pública emitió una alerta de promoción social, inmediatamente después del anuncio del Ejército, en la que pedía que los episcopales se dirigieran al secretario de Defensa James Mattis y lo instaran a no conceder el permiso final de usufructo [a la compañía constructora] sin un estudio completo sobre el impacto medioambiental “que propiamente consulte a los sioux de Roca Enhiesta y mantenga las obligaciones contraídas”. La tribu arguye que los tratados de Fort Laramie de 1851 y 1888 obligan al gobierno federal a tomar en consideración el bienestar de la tribu cuando tome decisiones que afecten a ésta.Después del anuncio, el presidente tribal Dave Archambault II dijo que la Nación Sioux de Roca Enhiesta impugnaría la decisión del gobierno de Trump en los tribunales. “Nuestra lucha ya no se limita al sitio mismo de Dakota del Norte”, dijo. “Nuestra lucha es con el Congreso y el gobierno de Trump. Nos encontramos en Washington el 10 de marzo”.Jan Hasselman, principal abogado de la tribu, dijo que la revocación “continúa un patrón histórico de promesas incumplidas a las tribus indias y de violaciones ilícitas de derechos pactados. Tendrán que dar cuenta de ello ante el tribunal”.Trump dijo el 7 de febrero que no había recibido ni una sola llamada de protesta por su directriz al Cuerpo de Ingenieros. Esa afirmación, replicó Archambault, refleja un sentido distorsionado de la realidad. Archambault voló a Washington el 7 de febrero para reunirse con funcionarios del gobierno de Trump al objeto de discutir las preocupaciones de la tribu respecto al oleoducto. Él se enteró del anuncio del Ejército al Congreso al aterrizar y canceló la reunión.El oleoducto de 1886 kilómetros de largo y 76 centímetros de diámetro estará preparado para transportar unos 470.000 barriles diarios de petróleo [crudo] desde los campos petrolíferos de Bakken en el noroeste de Dakota del Norte —a través de Dakota del Sur y Iowa— hasta Illinois, desde donde sería embarcado a las refinerías. El oleoducto habría de pasar aproximadamente a un kilómetro de la reserva de Roca Enhiesta y los líderes tribales sioux, en repetidas ocasiones, han manifestado su preocupación de que se produzca un posible derrame de petróleo que afecte el suministro de agua de la reserva, así como la amenaza que constituye el oleoducto para algunos sitios sagrados y para los derechos [de la tribu] reconocidos en tratados con el gobierno federal. La compañía que está construyendo el oleoducto, Energy Transfer Partners, con sede en Texas, dice que será seguro.La reunión [del Consejo Ejecutivo] del 5 al 8 de febrero tuvo lugar en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo.Información adicional de ENS sobre la reunión se encuentra aquí. Algunos miembros del Consejo enviaron mensajes por Twitter valiéndose del hashtag #ExCoun.El Consejo Ejecutivo lleva a cabo los programas y políticas adoptadas por la Convención General, según el Canon I.4 (1). El Consejo está compuesto de 38 miembros, 20 de los cuales (cuatro obispos, cuatro presbíteros o diáconos y 12 laicos) son elegidos por la Convención General, y 18 por los nueve sínodos provinciales (un clérigo y un laico cada uno) por períodos de seis años, además del Obispo Primado y el Presidente de la Cámara de Diputados [que son miembros ex oficio].

For the design of Casa Tierra (Earth House) the project was developed in order to be friendly with the surroundings and with a high energetic performance respecting all the premises in the Cumbres de Santa Fe master plan and establishing how the architects consider all the XXI century houses should be done. The project is supported on the conscience that has always been Serrano Monjaraz Arquitectos trade mark when developing architecture. As any other project it is adequate to the environment and also responds to the sustainable design regulations that have been increasing in the last years. Save this picture!© Pedro HiriartThe construction system of Casa Tierra was done with Pressed Earth Blocks (PEB) made from soil of the same lot. This system was selected for being cost and energy efficient, fire and pest resistant, virtually soundproof, durable and structurally sound and aesthetically pleasing. PEB provides complete architectural freedom and is made from non-toxic readily available natural raw material. Compared to other systems, it is more flexible and does not affect the width of the walls. The soil was pressed with 3% of concrete and 7% of lime, being 90% of the material needed for the construction obtained directly from the lot.Save this picture!© Pedro HiriartCasa Tierra is an example of the rational use of all the resources and the total respect for the surrounding environment. In its design all the guidelines of the complex were followed and elements that characterize its urbanization, such as: natural stone, apparent concrete in grey, black and white shades were incorporated. The gardens around the house were integrated to the natural surroundings to create a complete atmosphere. Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Architecture of Alfred HitchcockArticlesBuenos Aires Contemporary Art Museum / MonoblockSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeSerrano Monjaraz ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesMexicoPublished on January 23, 2014Cite: “Casa Tierra / Serrano Monjaraz Arquitectos” 23 Jan 2014.
