first_img Fears over turmoil in Egypt weigh on FTSE as banks fall WORRIES over the impact of the political unrest in Egypt saw Britain’s top share index fall yesterday, but losses were limited by gains from heavyweight energy issues as the crude price firmed.At the close, the FTSE 100 index was 18.43 points, or 0.3 per cent lower, at 5,862.94, having shed 1.4 per cent on Friday when worries over the situation in Egypt intensified.“Unsurprisingly, the situation has hit travel firms hard, with both TUI Travel (-2.69 per cent) and International Airlines Group (-2.30 per cent) among today’s losers. Right now December’s rally seems to be a distant memory and market confidence is fragile. While the situation in Egypt has taken attention away from the Eurozone crisis, we shouldn’t forget that this is still out there, with figures released today showing Eurozone inflation in January has jumped more than the ECB’s initial forecast, giving rise to speculation that the ECB will have to raise interest rates sooner than later,” said Will Hedden, sales trader at IG Index.Protesters further stepped up their campaign yesterday to force Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak to quit as world leaders struggled to find a solution to a crisis that has set a fire under the Middle East’s political map.Travel firms were big fallers, with traders citing worries over the disruption caused by the protests in Egypt and the impact of a strong crude price. Tour operator TUI Travel shed 2.6 per cent, with mid cap peer Thomas Cook down 3.1 per cent, and International Consolidated Airlines Group losing 1.8 per cent.Risk-sensitive banks were a drag on the blue chips as investors remained nervous about the global picture, with RBS falling.BG Group rallied after sharp falls on Friday as it said it has suspended drilling in Egypt but gas production remained normal.Traders highlighted the greater impact of BG’s recent new oil discovery in the Santos Basin, offshore Brazil.“BG Group remains a dark horse among leading FTSE 100 oil & gas explorers even though the ongoing exploration developments in the massive Santos Basin should be uppermost on trader’s radar,” said Andrew Gibson, head of research at Galvan.“Rising tensions in Egypt set the tone for the FTSE as an early drift lower saw the UK index slide over one per cent. Investors seemed spooked by the scale of the protests and the increasing uncertainty over the leadership in Egypt,” said Giles Watts, head of equities at City Index speaking yesterday.But BP bucked the firmer oil sector trend, shedding 0.4 per cent, ahead of its fourth-quarter results due today.There were concerns over BP’s dividend, as Russian shareholders in its TNK joint venture convened to consider withholding the $1.8bn payment.Miners rallied led by Xstrata, up 2.2 per cent, excited by merger activity among US coal miners.Massey Energy agreed to a $7bn takeover offer from Alpha Natural Resources.US blue chips were 0.2 per cent higher by London’s close as merger activity, and solid earnings from Exxon Mobil, helped offset concerns about the unrest in Egypt.Among individual gainers in London, Rexam added 2.1 per cent after the can maker signed a contract in North America and a long-term deal with its largest customer in Brazil.

first_img7th August 2018 | By contenteditor Sports betting Online bookmaker will work with the Professional Players Federation Betway has announced a joint venture with the Professional Players Federation (PPF) as part of an effort to promote betting integrity in British sport.The online gambling operator will work with the PPF to produce a series of short films to highlight the importance of integrity and the dangers that gambling can present to professional sportspeople.Based on a Q&A format, the new films focus on key issues such as betting, match fixing and the passing of inside information.The films will also showcase ongoing efforts across both the sports and betting industries in tackling corruption. Various player associations and sports integrity experts will feature in the series.Anthony Werkman, chief executive of Betway, said: “Our support of the PPF is an extremely important part of our wider work in the areas of sporting integrity and player education around gambling.“Our aims dovetail with that of the PPF in that we want a clean, competitive and ultimately fun environment for our customers to test their knowledge against. To our mind these videos will help ensure that both players and the customers of Betway continue to compete and play solely for the love of the game.”PPF chairman Brendon Batson (pictured) OBE added: “Player associations do a great job in educating players about betting integrity and these new films are designed to complement this education by giving bite size information and advice for players who may either want to learn more or seek support from their player association.“We are grateful to Betway and our other betting integrity partners for their funding of player education in this area.”Betway has established strong links with the world of professional sport through a number of sponsorship deals.The operator recently struck a deal to become the training gear sponsor of Italian Serie A football club AS Roma, prior to a new ban on gambling advertising coming into force in the country.Betway also recently agreed deals with Spanish LaLiga football club CD Leganés, as well as ESL esports competitions Intel Extreme Masters, ESL One and the CS:GO Pro League.

Kevin Godbold | Tuesday, 11th August, 2020 | More on: LLOY center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares US analyst Thomas Lee predicts a big rally in beaten-down shares on the stock market – soon! But he’s not the only investor expecting stocks to stage a recovery. Most of us reckon businesses will turn up at some point – why else would we buy cheap shares?Lee’s analysis of the imminent timing of an upsurge in the markets hinges on Covid-19 infections peaking around the world. He thinks we’re about there, and lagging stocks will surge as infection rates fall.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 shares look cheapIf he’s right, we could be seeing a fleeting window of opportunity to buy shares in Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) below 30p. As I write, the shares change hands at just over 28p, and the company sports some tasty-looking value metrics.For example, the price-to-book ratio runs near just 0.4. And the price-to-free-cash-flow ratio is about 0.8. Looking ahead, City analysts following the firm expect a rebound in earnings during 2021 of just over 350%. That puts the anticipated earnings multiple a little under eight. It’s hard to make a case for the valuation being too demanding. Although the bank has halted dividend payments for the time being as required by the regulators.However, the dividend will be back. As will earnings, revenues cash flow, and everything else desirable in a stock. That’s how cyclical businesses behave. Earnings cycle up and down along with share prices and dividends. And you’ll be hard-pressed to find a business more cyclical than a bank.The big question is, when? To me, Lloyds looks more attractive now than it has for years. Earnings, the share price and the dividend have all collapsed. Theoretically, that’s the best time to buy any cyclical stock in anticipation of the next cyclical up-leg. And if history is anything to go by, the upsurge will be rapid when it comes.Will history repeat?Just look at what happened to Lloyds in 2009 after the credit crunch – it soared almost 200% over just a few months. And it rose from a similar level to what we’re seeing now. If Lee is correct and beaten-down sectors rebound strongly soon, it’s hard to imagine Lloyds being left behind.Indeed, banks are known for being the first in and the first out of recessions. So, if economies continue to pick up and trading goes well for fallen sectors, Lloyds could be one of the stocks leading the charge higher. And there would be decent fundamental support from the underlying business — when the bank’s customers are doing well, Lloyds does well. And it also benefits when stock markets are buoyant.However, the main risk is things could get worse before they get better. It’s not hard to imagine Lloyds plunging another 50%, say, from where it is now if we see Covid-19 bubbling up again and causing more lockdowns. If you buy shares in Lloyds now, you must carry that risk. 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.

Cardiff Blues v Gloucester Challenge Cup final preview Gloucester are aiming to equal Harlequins’ record of winning three European Challenge Cup finals in Bilbao on Friday night as they take on Cardiff Blues in the final.The Blues also have pedigree in this tournament having beaten Toulon 28-21 in the 2010 final to become the first, and so far only, Welsh side to win a European title. The Cherry and Whites previous triumphs came in 2006 and 2015.In the pink: Ed Slater in action against Connacht in the knockout stages (Getty Images)Taufa’ao Filise starts this final, just as he did in 2010, but Gethin Jenkins has been ruled out by injury, as has Alex Cuthbert. Ellis Jenkins, a co-captain for Wales’ summer tour, will lead the Blues with Ed Slater named as skipper for Gloucester.Related: Wales squad for the 2018 summer tourHere’s what else you need to know in the lead-up to the game…How did the two teams reach this stage?Cardiff Blues topped their pool, despite losing to Sale, and then beat Edinburgh 20-6 at Murrayfield in the quarter-finals and overcame Pau 16-10 in the last four.Gloucester lost twice in their group games – to Pau home and away – before a 33-28 win over Connacht put them through to the semi-finals, where they saw off Newcastle 33-12.Rematch: Willis Halaholo and the Blues lost to Gloucester in last year’s quarter-finals (Getty Images)What have the coaches said?Cardiff Blues head coach Danny Wilson: “It promises to be an electric occasion between two sides that like to run the ball and play attacking rugby.“Gloucester will be highly motivated for a European final, will be well prepared and emotionally in a place that they will be bouncing to try to turn us over but that will be no different to ourselves.”Gloucester head coach Johan Ackermann: “Cardiff are deservedly in the final. They’re a team with a lot of threats – a very good loose trio and a very good back-line. “They’re a side who will fight for everything and I think it will be a great final between two sides that play a decent brand of rugby.”Any interesting statistics?These two sides have met once before in the Challenge Cup, Gloucester beating Cardiff Blues 46-26 in last year’s quarter-finals.Gloucester have won 98% of their own scrums this season, losing just one of 58 against the head, which is a better record than any other team in the Challenge Cup.In form: Jake Polledri has been a key performer for Gloucester (Getty Images)Gloucester flanker Jake Polledri has beaten more defenders than any other forward in the competition (28).The teams appear to play in contrasting styles, with Cardiff Blues averaging 16.9 points and 1.9 tries a game in the Challenge Cup while Gloucester average 39.9 points and 5.6 tries.The Blues do fare better in the turnover stats, winning an average of 8.6 a game to Gloucester’s 7.1, and average fewer missed tackles too.When does it kick off and is it on TV?Bilbao’s San Mamés Stadium is hosting this year’s Challenge Cup final, which will kick off at 8pm UK time (9pm in Spain). It is being televised live on both BT Sport and Sky Sports.It’s an all-French refereeing group with Jerome Garces holding the whistle and Romain Poite and Pascal Gauzere on the touchlines.Related: Downtime with Jerome GarcesYoung gun: Jarrod Evans has impressed at ten for Cardiff Blues (Getty Images)What are the line-ups?CARDIFF BLUES: Gareth Anscombe; Owen Lane, Rey Lee-Lo, Willis Halaholo, Blaine Scully; Jarrod Evans, Tomos Williams; Rhys Gill, Kristian Dacey, Taufa’ao Filise, Seb Davies, Josh Turnbull, Josh Navidi, Ellis Jenkins, Nick Williams.Replacements: Kirby Myhill, Brad Thyer, Scott Andrews, Damian Welch, Olly Robinson, Lloyd Williams, Garyn Smith, Matthew Morgan.GLOUCESTER: Jason Woodward; Tom Marshall, Billy Twelvetrees, Mark Atkinson, Henry Trinder; Billy Burns, Callum Braley; Josh Hohneck, James Hanson, John Afoa, Ed Slater (captain), Mariano Galarza, Jake Polledri, Lewis Ludlow, Ruan Ackermann.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Same again?

The fund offers grants from up to £1,000 to £25,000.The Fund operates on a competition basis, with applicants being put to a public online vote.Last year, the Aviva Community Fund saw over 3,900 local groups enter the competition with over 800 awarded funding. Recipients included Carnkie Village Hall which needed equipment to run film nights, to ‘Urban Buzz’, a project aiming to create bee friendly spaces in Birmingham, Cardiff, Plymouth and York.The fund welcomes applications from members of the local community who can submit an idea that will make a difference to a local group or charity they are passionate about.Challenges faced by community groupsAviva launched the fund with the results of a research project which found that there has been an 18% drop in the number of people taking action and helping out in their local community over the last two years. In contrast 37% of Britons surveyed said that times of uncertainty actually encourage community spirit.Community groups surveyed said that the sums of money required to keep them going were not huge, but still a challenge. 59% of them said that as ‘little’ as £2,500 or less would secure the day to day running of their community group for the next 12 months.They added that the greatest benefit for their group would come from money (55%) and more volunteers (54%).  620 total views,  6 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis30 Howard Lake | 14 September 2017 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis30 Tagged with: Community fundraising Funding small charities How to applyTo further help local groups submit their entries to the Aviva Community Fund, an online toolkit has been created featuring a team of experts.Journalist Nina Ahmed is providing tips on how to write a compelling entry, and director Heidi Greensmith is giving advice on how to create a short film to tell the story of a project.Stuart Brown, Business Development Manager at Small Charities Coalition, said: “From our experience of working with small charities on a daily basis, we know that they are vital in providing services across the country.“As shown by the research, funding of any amount can make a huge difference to groups and therefore community wellbeing, with as little as £2,500 enough to secure the day to day running for the next 12 months.”Tom Daniell, Retail Marketing Director at Aviva said that the Aviva Community Fund expects to fund over 550 projects this year.Entries to the Aviva Community Fund are open from 12 September to 10 October 2017.Voting opens on 24th October and closes on 21st November.

Reporters Without Borders hails the long-awaited release today of Iraqi journalist Bilal Hussein, a photographer with the Associated Press news agency, who had been held by the US military in Iraq since 12 April 2006 on suspicion of terrorist links.“Hussein’s release is very good news but it comes after two years of unjustified detention,” the press freedom organisation said. “He was deprived of his freedom on the basis of baseless allegations. We regret the slowness with which the US authorities investigated this case and the lack of transparency surrounding it.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We urge US authorities to follow up Hussein’s release by freeing Sudanese journalist Sami Al-Haj, an Al-Jazeera cameraman held at the Guantanamo Bay detention centre in Cuba since 2002, and Afghan journalist Jawed Ahmad, who has been held at a US airbase in Afghanistan for the past five months.”Hussein was released from Camp Cropper, a camp located near Baghdad airport that is used as a detention centre by the US-led coalition forces. Maj. Gen. Douglas Stone, the camp’s deputy commander, announced two days ago that Hussein would be freed. “After the action by the Iraqi judicial committees, we reviewed the circumstances of Hussein’s detention and determined that he no longer presents an imperative threat to security,” Stone said.On 13 April, an Iraqi judicial commission dismissed allegations that Hussein was involved in a kidnapping. According to the Associated Press, Hussein was one of several journalists who were forced by an armed group to take photos of the body of an Italian the group had kidnapped and then executed in December 2004.On 7 April, a earlier judicial panel consisting of four Iraqi judges ordered Hussein’s release under a new amnesty law, thereby dismissing all terrorism charges against him.Hussein, 36, was arrested during an operation by US marines in his home town of Ramadi (110 km west of Baghdad) on 12 April 2006. The US military formally brought charges against him before an Iraqi court in November 2007, 19 months after his arrest.
