first_img KCS-content Intel is to buy German chipmaker Infineon’s wireless unit for $1.4bn (£900m) as it seeks to claw its way into the booming smartphone market and reduce its reliance on PCs.The move, agreed yesterday, is the second major deal for Intel in two weeks. The company has already announced a $7.7bn deal for security software firm McAfee.The deal is designed to help the world’s biggest chipmaker break into the rapidly expanding smartphone market. It is desperate for a foothold after selling its chip business for mobile handhelds and mobile phones to Marvell Technology for $600m four years ago.Intel dominates the market for PC microprocessors and its Atom mobile chips took the low-cost, no-frills netbook market by storm.However, pressure from tablet computers such as Apple’s iPad is chipping away at demand for notebooks and PCs.Intel plans to keep Infineon’s mobile unit independent once the all-cash transaction closes in the first quarter of 2011.Arvind Sodhani, executive vice president of Intel, said: “We have learned from our experience over the past 20 years that many of our previous acquisitions have not been as successful as we would have liked them to be, that’s why we are keeping this entity independent.”Infineon, based near Munich, supplies chips to companies such as Nokia, LG and Apple. The sale of its wireless arm could open the door on a special dividend for shareholders, who have not seen a payout in years.

Last year saw a 33 per cent increase in copper prices, including a 16 per cent jump last month.Continued demand from China is partly causing the rise, analysts said. And the rise is a positive sign according to Matthew Zeman of LaSalle Futures Group. “People are getting the message that the global recovery is gathering steam. Supply is not going to keep up with demand. China will be back in the market for additional copper,” he said.Some analysts expect global shortfalls in the coming year. whatsapp Monday 3 January 2011 11:13 pm Tags: NULL by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’Definitionlast_img read more

ITOCHU was being advised by Nomura.PAI originally bought Kwik-Fit from rival private equity firm CVC Capital Partners in 2005, when it paid £800m. But the sell-off of separate entities within the retailer since then make the venture a profitable one.Shortly after buying the auto shop chain, PAI sold off its stores and re-leased them in order to refinance its original purchase. It then sold off Kwik-Fit’s insurance business last year for £215m, before selling the last part of the retailer this week.PAI declined to comment. whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

He, however, failed to make an impact on the semi-final and will be keen to add to his tally.The Baroda team management will be more than happy that Kartik Kakade has roared back to form and that gives the middle order a strong look. They can continue to open with Ninad Rathva, so that he can put pressure on Tamil Nadu bowlers, with Smit Patel coming down the order.Also, Babashafi Pathan, will be another important cog in their wheel, with both the bat and ballBaroda’s impressive pace duo of Atit Sheth and Lukman Meriwala, will try to make early inroads. Meriwala picked up three wickets in the semi-final but conceded some runs towards the end, something he would be keen to change.However, the duo would be up against a formidable TN batting line up, and hence the challenge would be much more.The role of the spin trio of left-arm spinners Bhargav Bhatt, Ninad Rathva and offie Kartik Kakade, will also be vital in the middle overs and in deciding the match’s fate.Come Sunday, Baroda can spring a massive surprise.

first_img 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 Royston Wild | Sunday, 12th July, 2020 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now! Watching stock markets crash can be scary. Savers and investors will duck for cover and try to find other ways to use their spare cash. In the long run it can prove to be a costly mistake, but on a human level it kind of makes sense. No one wants to see the value of their investments suddenly fall off a cliff.Buying property is often seen as an attractive lifeboat by many in tough times like these. A popular belief is that the stability of bricks and mortar makes it the ultimate safe-haven investment. With the global economy facing the biggest downturn since the Great Depression, it’s becoming increasingly appealing for those fearing another market crash.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…Landlord profits are sinkingExploding rents in large parts of the UK are also encouraging many to get involved or to increase their exposure to the buy-to-let market. Some are taking advantage of falling property prices to build a bricks-and-mortar empire, too. Stamp duty reductions announced this week is encouraging many to look closely at the property lettings market also.This, in my opinion, is a big mistake. Rents might be increasing, sure. However, buy-to-let profits have collapsed in recent years as tax costs have increased, landlord fees have risen and the costs of general property upkeep have ballooned.A poll from Accumulate Capital at the top of the year showed that that more and more investors are preparing to throw in the towel as a result. Of some 750 landlords it polled, a whopping 37% said that they are planning to sell one or more residential properties in 2020. And almost two-thirds of participants said that greater regulation and higher taxes prompted their decision to sell up.Buy the market crash!This is why I believe stock investing is a better way for investors to use their cash.Studies show us that share investors tend to make an average yearly return of 8% to 10%. That’s over a long-term time horizon and accounts for the impact of stock market crashes. I’d argue that the 2020 market crash allows investors today to maximise their overall returns by buying great companies at low prices.It’s not like there’s a shortage of brilliant UK shares to buy following the stock market crash. Investors fearing a long and painful global downturn can buy resilient businesses like utilities companies, defence contractors, and healthcare providers. And many of these are at prices I see as too cheap to miss following the market crash.So which companies do I like? Residential care home operator CareTech Holdings and power station operator Drax Group, for example, both trade on rock-bottom forward price-to-earnings ratios of 10 times. Meanwhile dividend investors might want to take a close look at drugs developer Glaxo and defence play Babcock International Group. Dividend yields for these firms range between 5% and 7% at current prices. With the right strategy it’s possible for stock investors to still make a fortune following the market crash.

first_imgMumia Abu-JamalThis column was transcribed from a Sept. 12 audio column from prisonradio.org.Several years ago, a new American president charmed the crowds in Cairo with his eloquence, his seeming earnestness, and most importantly, his person.This president was the first such U.S. chief executive with caramel brown skin, and his name, Barack Hussein Obama, reflected, at least in part, an Islamic and African ancestry that sent ripples of delight throughout the North African audience.Several years later, American embassies in several Arab countries are attacked, and most potently, a consular office in Benghazi, Libya — where a young U.S. ambassador is credentialed to the new, post-Gadhafi government — is struck by RPG fire — and burned to the ground, killing at least 4 Americans, including the country’s U.S. ambassador.Reporters assign blame to an insulting and inflammatory anti-Islamic film that maligned the Prophet Muhammad.But, that said, friends don’t burn or bomb friends.Despite all the promise of Obama’s Cairo speech, his drone wars against alleged Islamic extremists, not to mention his continuing acquiescence to Israeli extremism and anti-Palestinian attacks, have burned bridges in the Arab and Muslim consciousness that finally explodes in real burning and real bombs.Nor should it be overlooked that these attacks occurred on 9/11.In Cairo, that vast, cosmopolitan and ancient city, where once the Obama name stirred hums of hope, now the embassy is raided and the U.S. flag shredded.And, as ever in life, there is irony, for the American Embassy in Libya was undoubtedly the source of the arming of the anti-Gadhafi resistance — and perhaps the source of the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, burning it to the ground.In other words, the chickens have come home to roost. It seems the Arab Spring is over.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
