Glencore tries to tame its new outspoken chair

first_img Glencore tries to tame its new outspoken chair KCS-content whatsapp Share COMMODITIES trader Glencore knew it would be entering an unpredictableworld when it appointed 71-year-old former French legionnaire and mountain climber Simon Murray to be its chairman earlier this month ahead of its multi-billion pound flotation.Even so, Murray’s comments over the past few days have raised more hackles than the most sceptical City adviser could have dreamed of. He described England as “economically, absolutely shambolic” in an interview and then described women as “not so ambitious in business as men”. “They have better things to do… pregnant ladies have nine months off.”Yesterday, as a host of City grandees took aim at the new chairman’s indiscretions, Murray was being taken through his steps by financial public relations advisers to the float.“I wouldn’t say we’re trying to rein him in exactly,” said one adviser, “but sometimes Simon can say things the second he thinks of them.”Some working on the float were suggesting Murray’s quotes be checked by advisers before being given to reporters. Others advised he takes some time off from interviews to let the City focus on Glencore, not its chair, again. Those working on the deal took a largely sanguine approach.“Glencore is so up there in all sorts of ways that in the long run these comments will have little impact.” Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofHomemade Tomato Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tuesday 26 April 2011 8:56 pm Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Enter Your Email Address 2020 is a year best forgotten, but this year is already looking good for investors. Stock markets are steady and are likely to remain so. Dividends are coming back. Initial public offerings (IPOs) are in the pipeline. I think this is a good time to consolidate my efforts at achieving financial freedom. What’s financial freedom?Financial freedom for me is the ability to afford my life without having to actively earn either a salary or business income. 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…To me, this means that I have to set up my finances in such a way that my investments do the work for me. To do this, I have to ensure a healthy return on my investments. How should I become financially free?I think a straightforward way to do this is by investing in stocks that earn me a passive income. Broadly reliable dividend income that meets my financial requirements would make it possible for me to feel more secure. The good news is that many FTSE 100 companies make dividend payments. Dividend payouts suffered in the pandemic, but are coming back thick and fast. Just this week three big companies reinstated them – BHP, Glencore, and Barclays.Investing in banksBarclays’ announcement earlier today is of particular significance, since it leads the way for other FTSE 100 banks. Banks’ dividend payments were paused on Bank of England’s direction last year as a precautionary measure when the pandemic took root in 2020. The restriction has been lifted and the likes of Lloyds Bank and Standard Chartered are expected to restart dividend payments this year. Their broadly uninspiring performance at the stock markets and strong correlation with the economy, which has been in slowdown, has kept me at a healthy distance from them in the recent past. But things are beginning to look up, which is why they are on my radar now.Miners look goodThere are other sectors to look at too. For instance, yesterday I wrote that the idea of a commodities supercycle is doing the rounds. Miners like Rio Tinto, BHP, Anglo American, and Glencore are all stocks that can benefit, if this is indeed the case. So can oil stocks like Royal Dutch Shell and BP. All these FTSE 100 companies pay dividends, and if we believe in the idea, they can be expected to do so in the foreseeable future as well. Utilities are stableUtilities like National Grid, United Utilities, and Severn Trent are also shares I’d consider. With dividend yields ranging between 4% and 6%, and largely consistent share price growth, they would make for good purchases for me. Risk to considerThe only big risk as I see it is that dividend payouts are always at the discretion of companies. So in a sudden crisis, like the pandemic, a bunch of companies can stop these payments. And I can be left high-and-dry without any source of income. Fortunately, these situations are few and far between. But it is something I need to keep in mind while investing in stocks.  See all posts by Manika Premsinghlast_img read more

2 of the best UK stocks to buy in March

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The outlook for the world economy remains fraught with peril as the Covid-19 crisis drags on. This means that investor appetite for UK stocks remains pretty fragile. The FTSE 100 for example has edged only fractionally higher during February. And it’s possible that this weakness could stretch into March as rising concerns over soaring inflation also damage market confidence.I don’t think that all UK shares will struggle to rise next month, however. I have no intention of stopping buying British stocks for my Stocks and Shares ISA any time soon. This is because there are still plenty of quality companies which are thriving despite the economic downturn.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…These particular two shares have continued to trade strongly despite the recent pandemic. And I reckon they could enjoy strong price rises in the days and weeks ahead.A top UK tech shareCompanies are investing more and more money on protecting their IT operations from cyberattacks. I think this makes Kape Technologies (LSE: KAPE) a brilliant UK share to buy right now. In fact I’d buy it for my ISA before full-year financials come out on 17 March.A string of upbeat financial statements has lifted the IT giant’s share price 16% higher over the past 12 months. In its January update it said it had been “substantially growing its customer footprint” in 2020 and that, as a consequence it expected revenues to have jumped 85% from 2019 levels. I believe sales should continue to march higher too as the popularity of both homeworking and e-commerce goes from strength to strength.The obvious threat to Kape Technologies is that hackers and cybercriminals are always working to bring down security systems. And numerous or high-profile failures by the UK share’s systems could significantly dent future business wins in the future. In the meantime the company is expected to record a 2% earnings rise in 2021. This leaves it trading on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 21 times.High growth, cheap valuationThe Mpac Technologies (LSE: MPAC) share price has also rocketed recently. In fact it’s up 90% during the past year. And I believe the release of full-year financials (also on 17 March) could be the catalyst for further gains.This UK stock provides high-speed packaging and automation systems to businesses. It’s therefore benefitting from the rising investment companies are making in robotics to improve efficiency. It’s why Mpac claimed last month that “we continue to win original equipment and service orders with robust demand” in spite of the impact of Covid-19 on the global economy.Now Mpac is smaller than many of its rivals. This, combined with the threat of further industry consolidation, could weigh on margins down the line. But I still think the automation company is still an attractive stock at current prices. City analysts reckon earnings here will soar 25% in 2021. This leaves it trading on a low forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) reading of 0.7. 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.

The proposal was to be closely related to thevegetation surrounding the property and to elements such as light and shadow,or the sound of water and the breeze. Contour lines were used for the design ofthe project, optimizing resources and creating views of the lake and river. Oneof the most noticeable features achieved was that, thanks to the collection of visualimages of the typical architecture of the area, its typology was reinterpretedto recreate it in La Lagartija.

Derryman to be sentenced for copyright infringement

first_imgHomepage BannerNews By News Highland – September 8, 2015 Nine Til Noon Show – Listen back to Wednesday’s Programme A man who set a website from his Carnhill home that could have cost film and TV producers as much as £120 million will be sentenced today.At an earlier hearing 30 year-old Paul Mahoney of 372 Carnhill in Derry admitted four charges of concealing criminal property, conspiracy to defraud and acquiring criminal property in relation to infringing copyright on films and TV shows.All of the offences occurred between April 2008 and May 2011.An earlier sitting of the court was told that it was ‘a sophisticated fraud’ that put at risk £120 million across the film and TV industry.When police searched Mahoney’s Carnhill home they found more than £82,000 in cash and they believed that overall he had made around £300,000 from his website.The webbsite enabled people to watch recently released or even unreleased films and TV shows and was free for users while Mahoney made his money from advertisers on the site.A defence barrister Mr. Martin Rodgers said that the advertising companies who used Mahoney’s website should also have questions to answer.He said his client had not been involved in ‘a sophisticated operation.’ and had lived the life of a recluse for the past ten years with only his computer for company.Mahoney will be sentenced today.

The seasonal cycle of sublimation at Halley, Antarctica

first_imgWe have used micrometeorological data collected at Halley Research Station, Antarctica, to estimate monthly totals of snow sublimation. Direct sublimation from the snow surface is calculated using bulk-transfer formulae, while the sublimation of blowing snow is estimated using a model for suspended-particle number density and individual particle sublimation rates. During the winter months, sublimation losses are negligible, but between November and March sublimation removes around 25% of the snowfall. Surface sublimation and sublimation of blowing snow make roughly equal contributions to this total. Estimates of sublimation using micrometeorological data agree well with estimates made from daily snow-stake measurements.last_img read more
