After the deal, Hitachi will own 10 per cent of Western Digital. Western Digital said it had secured a term loan of $2bn and a revolving credit facility of $500m to fund the deal. The largest tech deal to be struck this year caps years of consolidation for a beleaguered industry that has battled persistent sales growth declines, and now faces a longer-term threat from wireless devices like Apple’s iPad.

Espirito Santo, which bought London stockbroker Execution Noble last November, said pre-tax profit fell 3.2 per cent to €678.6m.Fees and capital market income grew 13.6 and 7.8 per cent respectively, delivering more than €1bn to net income, but a 10 per cent rise in operating expenses dented gains. The bank said an agreement with the Portuguese government to lower wages in 2011 would pare losses this year. “Overall recurrent income remained healthy despite a difficult operating environment, it said. The bank added: “Increased interest costs relating to [our] commitment to maintaining a strong capital position, as required under Basel III, contributed to a fall in overall results.” whatsapp Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndoautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comUndoElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldUndoDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaUndoPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayUndo Espirito Santo profits fall on Basel III cost KCS-content last_img read more

2 cheap FTSE 100 shares I’ll buy to boost my portfolio

first_img2 cheap FTSE 100 shares I’ll buy to boost my portfolio Andy Ross | Tuesday, 9th February, 2021 | More on: BA TSCO Image source: Getty Images. There are mean Cheap FTSE 100 shares available on the back of the Covid-19-induced market slump. Despite a partial recovery, the FTSE 100 is still below its level of a year ago. That’s why I intend to pick up bargain shares now in the hope of drawing a passive income from the dividends for years to come.Cheap FTSE 100 shares I likeBoth the shares I’d pick to boost my portfolio are ‘defensive’. They’re BAE Systems (LSE: BA) and Tesco (LSE: TSCO). I think that can do well in the long term, given that their products or services (defence and groceries respectively) should always be in demand, no matter what’s happening in the economy.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…BAE Systems has a dividend yield approaching 5% and the shares trade on a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 10. The P/E is the ratio of the share price to the company’s earnings per share. It can be used to assess whether companies are good value. BAE’s reading of 10 indicates good value to me.Looking at its financials, revenue has increased from £16.8bn in 2015 to £18.3bn in 2019. And operating profit went from £1.4bn to £1.7bn. So there’s steady growth at the defence company.It has high barriers to entry given its strong government relationships and the cost of capital to set up a defence manufacturing firm. This means I’m confident it can continue to be a steady performer, whatever happens to the UK and global economy. It looks to me to be cheap and able to provide a passive income for my portfolio.I’d be concerned though if ESG investing means institutional investors shun the shares. Another risk of course is the company’s reliance on a small number of countries’ defence budgets.A much improved business in recent yearsUnder the previous CEO, Tesco became a much steadier and better business than it had been, in my opinion. It’s become more UK-focused and expanded here with the acquisition of wholesaler Booker in 2017.The shares are on a P/E of 13 I think they look cheap. On top of that, when it comes to the income the shares will generate, the dividend yield is just under 4%. And this month the grocer will also be paying a large special dividend to shareholders.There’s also a relatively new CEO at the helm, which could in itself provide a boost for the shares.It’s not entirely without risk, as that relatively low P/E indicates. I feel the biggest danger for investors remains the threat of margin-crushing price wars. There’s also the issue of discounters continuing to take market share from Tesco and preventing it from getting back to the kind of margins it enjoyed a decade or so ago.Be wary of value trapsAs always, when it comes to shares that appear cheap, I’m wary. They can be value traps, which means a share is cheap because the business is out of favour with investors as its future looks uncertain. Even an already cheap share price can continue to slide, so value investing isn’t without its risks.Value investing may not be everyone’s favoured strategy, but I intend to add these two cheap FTSE 100 shares to my portfolio and hope they steadily grow over the next few years. See all posts by Andy Ross 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.

ESG investing is in vogue and this share could capitalise

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares ESG investing is in vogue and this share could capitalise Our 5 Top Shares for the New “Green Industrial Revolution” ESG investing is increasingly popular with both private and institutional investors. I think that will be the case for many years to come, which could benefit shares with good ESG credentials. That means those companies that have good environmental, social and governance standards.This is borne out by the evidence. Clients of stockbroker Hargreaves Lansdown have upped their net purchases of responsible investment funds forty-fold in four years. That’s quite a pace of change.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…On the basis that ESG stocks should do well as money pours in for ESG-friendly investments, I’m thinking SSE (LSE: SSE) could be a good pick for my portfolio.SSE is ideal for ESG investingThe energy company has been transitioning to renewables for a long time so has a head start on many of the oil companies that are now trying to catch up. That lessens the risk that SSE is simply greenwashing and to me indicates that it’s ahead of the curve when it comes to helping the UK become carbon-neutral – something that has serious political support.SSE has a portfolio of around 4GW of onshore wind, offshore wind and hydro. It’s aiming to treble its renewable energy output from 2019 levels to 30TWh by 2030.It operates in the UK and Ireland so is in very socially and politically stable countries, which lessens the risk of nasty surprises that can come with operating in some parts of the world.I think SSE presents a turnaround opportunity as well, so has some appeal for me as a value investment. The financials have been getting consecutively worse for a few years, but I believe much of that is down to investment in the future and building the energy-generating capacity.It’s this investment, known as capex, which is an ongoing risk. The amount of money needed to meet its ambitions for producing renewable energy is very high. That puts pressure on the dividend and the balance sheet.However, with a dividend yield above 5%, SSE is a decent income stock, in my opinion. It’s also well positioned for ESG investing and has made good progress over recent years. Management deserves a lot of credit and I’d be prepared to back them with my own money.How else to invest ethically?If I didn’t want to pick an individual share to benefit from the rise of ESG investments, then I’d instead pick a fund or a trust with a good record. Examples include Royal London Sustainable Leaders and Liontrust UK Ethical. The former invests in Prudential, Experian and Unilever, while the latter has National Express, Countryside Properties and Prudential as its top three holdings.Investing ethically is no longer just for the socially conscious, in my opinion. I think ESG investing could be good for the planet and for the value of my Stocks and Shares ISA. Andy Ross owns no share mentioned.

Report: Some labs only reporting positive COVID-19 test results to Florida…

Please enter your name here In recent days, the Florida Department of Health noticed that some smaller, private labs weren’t reporting negative test result data to the state. Larger, industrial-sized labs, which do the bulk of the testing, are including full results, including negative tests, the DOH said.By John Haughey | The Center SquareSeveral private labs contracted to process COVID-19 tests in Florida are reporting “incomplete data” that artificially could be boosting the state’s positivity rate for the coronavirus, the Florida Department of Health (DOH) said.

John Raoux / AP Please enter your comment! The Anatomy of Fear LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter DOH maintains that “incomplete data” is negative test results, noting several labs are returning only 100 percent positive results and others are reporting positivity rates in the 80- and 90-percent range.Orlando’s FOX 35 News was the first to report the discrepancy Tuesday after an investigation revealed one testing site reported 83 tested people all returned positive results and another reported an 88 percent positivity rate.Orlando Health sent 522 tests to a lab that returned 512 positive results, a 98 percent positivity rate. Orlando Health maintains when it asked the batch to be reprocessed, only 9.4 percent, less than 50, were actually positive.Orlando’s Veterans Affairs hospital reported tests returning with positivity rates of 31, 46 and 76 percent on a combined 710 tests sent to various labs, according to the Orlando Sentinel.DOH reported Wednesday that 2.74 million coronavirus tests have been conducted in Florida, with 2.43 million testing negative, for an overall 11 percent positivity rate. How significant the unreported negative tests – and how many there could be – is uncertain.“The department immediately began working with those labs to ensure all results were being reported in order to provide comprehensive and transparent data,” a DOH spokesman said Tuesday. “As the state continues to receive results from various labs, the department will continue educating these labs on proper protocol for reporting COVID-19 test results.”According to DOH, the discrepancies are emerging from smaller labs that may be following the same reporting guidelines for COVID-19 as they do for other infectious diseases, such as gonorrhea or HIV, that don’t report negative results.“Private and public laboratories are required to report positive and negative test results to the state immediately,” DOH told FOX 35 News in a Tuesday email. “In recent days, the Florida Department of Health noticed that some smaller, private labs weren’t reporting negative test result data to the state. The department immediately began working with those labs to ensure all results were being reported in order to provide comprehensive and transparent data.”Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said the state’s Merlin system for reportable illnesses requires positive test results only be forwarded to DOH. In March, he said, “We said report the negatives, too. There were a lot of labs doing what the default is, sending the positives only. I know some of the major labs were submitting the positives only first in April and May and then they would dump the negatives later. We’d have a positive rate of 0.6 (percent)” which officials recognized as inaccurate.Larger, industrial-sized labs, which do the bulk of the testing, are including full results, including negative tests, DOH said.Among them are Quest Diagnostics in Tampa, which has reported an 11 percent positivity rate for 540,816 tests; Laboratory Corporation of America, 12 percent positive out of 455,836 tests; Bio Reference Laboratories, 13 percent of 360,286 tests; and AdventHealth, 11 percent positive out of 103,000 tests.DOH and others are increasingly questioning how a matrix of private labs analyzing tests are not following the same guidelines and often file results in “data dumps” days, even weeks, after being processed, skewering the “snap shot” of the coronavirus’ spread that public health officials say is necessary to combat COVID-19.DOH reported 15,300 COVID-19 positive test results Sunday, the nation’s highest single-day total. More than 7,000 were reported by GENETWORx, a Virginia lab that has accounted for 52,000 of the 301,810 COVID-19 cases reported in Florida despite handling a lesser volume of testing than other labs.Gov. Ron DeSantis said Tuesday the state can “create a case the way this is reported,” a claim made Monday in a Just The News analysis that said DOH may have inflated case counts since mid-June by as much as 30 percent.It’s essentially the same claim in reverse made by Rebekah Jones, the geographic information system analyst fired by DOH in May. Jones said the way DOH reports “case date” and “event date” underreports cases.

Clermont Auvergne beat Perpignan in high scoring try-fest

first_imgThursday Sep 6, 2012 Clermont Auvergne beat Perpignan in high scoring try-fest Clermont hosted Pepignan for one of the more bizarre, and entertaining, games of the weekend in the French Top 14 last Saturday. A total of eleven tries were scored as Clermont took the 53-31 victory in front of their home fans. The hosts’ win meant a third successive defeat for Perpignan this season, despite the Catalans having managed to score four tries on the road.Clermont scored seven, with Julien Bonnaire crossing twice, while Morgan Parra, Noa Nakaitaci, Loic Jacquet, Elvis Mermeulen, and Benson Stanley all scored good tries. Things got worse for Perpignan after the game as they now have to deal with significant injury losses. Veteran prop Nicolas Mas will be out for three to four weeks with a torn hamstring, while the man that replaced him, Kisi Pulu, went on to break his arm.Pulu is ruled out until December, so they are now searching for a ‘medical joker’ to fill the void.Flanker Jean-Pierre Perez ruptured his knee ligaments, so his season looks to be over after he underwent surgery earlier this week.There were plenty of great tries scored, so while the quality of this video isn’t great, it’s worth seeing, especially for the pinpoint cross-kicks.

Wales centre Jonathan Davies ruled out of Rugby World Cup with injury

first_imgWednesday May 27, 2015 Wales centre Jonathan Davies ruled out of Rugby World Cup with injury Wales centre Jonathan Davies has ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament, ruling him out of the 2015 Rugby World Cup. The 27-year-old, who has played 48 times for Wales, suffered the injury for his club side Clermont Auvergne against Montpellier and will undergo surgery in the coming days. The Welsh Rugby Union and Clermont medical teams have been in constant dialogue and Davies is likely to be unavailable for 6-7 months. Wales head coach Warren Gatland said: “It’s a disappointment for Jonathan and for us, but the advice is for him to have the surgery straight away. “Obviously the injury rules him out of the 2015 Rugby World Cup but our focus is his long term career and we will be working closely with him during his recovery looking towards the 2016 RBS 6 Nations.”How big a blow would you say this is for Wales?

Northern Ireland philanthropists urged to speak out

first_img Northern Ireland’s top business leaders have been urged to speak out about their charitable activities to help persuade others to follow their lead.Leading philanthropy expert Ellen Remmer, of US-based The Philanthropic Initiative, said philanthropy in Northern Ireland was being held back because of philanthropists’ desire to be anonymous.“One of the biggest challenges will be the very private culture you have in Northern Ireland. There do not seem to be a lot of donors who are willing to stand up, challenge and inspire their peers to give,” she told business leaders at an event organised by the new philanthropic organisation, Giving Northern Ireland in association with the Institute of Directors.
