Carrefour declined to comment.Europe’s biggest supermarket chain might look to sell or spin off assets in an attempt to revive its share price after two profit warnings last year, according to analysts.Colony Capital and Groupe Arnault, which hold 13.5 per cent of Carrefour, are still down on their 2007 investment, which was made at about €50 a share.“Board members, advised by BNP Paribas are working on a simultaneous spin-off of Dia (discount) and Carrefour Property (real estate), which would both be listed in Paris,” a source told French newspaper Le Figaro.RBS analyst Justin Scarborugh said: “There could be some value creation (for shareholders from spinning off the two businesses). But these rumors have been around for some time, and so it’s hard to know how much of this is already in the price … Plus, there would be some earnings dilution.” Share Show Comments ▼ by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal 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 AthletesBetterBeLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Applications up for City jobs

first_imgMonday 14 March 2011 8:39 pm CITY firms are struggling to hang on to staff despite plans to increase salaries and bonuses by more than inflation, according to two surveys by recruitment firms.Financial recruiter Robert Half says that a survey of 280 chief financial officers (CFOs), shows 61 per cent of listed firms are planning to put up salaries in coming months, more than two thirds of them by five to six per cent and a fifth by seven to 10 per cent.The research also shows that increases in bonuses will just about match inflation, with a third of CFOs planning to put them up by three to four per cent, and half planning to raise them by five to six per cent.Numbers from rival City recruiter Astbury Marsden show why: it says the number of applications it received in February has soared to 7,400, a 47 per cent jump year-on-year as disgruntled employees consider options and prepare to ditch their current employer.The data shows that non-top tier investment bankers, in particular, are upset about their pay levels. Astbury Marsden chief operating officer Mark Cameron: says “Dissatisfaction about pay is inevitable among such a hyper-competitive cohort as investment bankers – they see bonuses as the way to keep score and they hate to lose.”He added that some investment banks are reporting staff turnover for the first quarter of 20 per cent – way above the usual churn that follows bonus season.The rise in applications has not quite been matched by an equivalent jump in vacancies, but there were nonetheless 30 per cent more jobs added to the recruiter’s register this February than last. whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ Applications up for City jobs center_img whatsapp 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 TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Herald KCS-content More From Our Partners Killer drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org Tags: NULLlast_img read more

NYSE rejects merger bid from Nasdaq

first_imgSunday 10 April 2011 11:42 pm whatsapp Show Comments ▼ THE DIRECTORS of NYSE Euronext have snubbed a rival merger bid from Nasdaq OMX Group, giving rise to the possibility of a hostile takeover attempt. The firm said it still firmly backs an offer from Deutsche Boerse, saying the joint Nasdaq / InterContinental Exchange offer carried significant execution risk and was less likely to close.The board of directors also raised concerns about the level of debt involved in the merger proposal.The bid proposed a radical restructuring of the exchange, which would see Intercontinental Exchange snap up NYSE’s European assets.NYSE Euronext chairman Jan-Michiel Hessels said: “Breaking up NYSE Euronext, burdening the pieces with high levels of debt, and destroying its invaluable human capital, would be a strategic mistake in terms of where the global markets are going, and is clearly not in the best interests of our shareholders. “The highly conditional break-up proposal from Nasdaq / ICE would also require shareholders to shoulder unacceptable execution risk. “We are confident that the combination with Deutsche Boerse will create compelling value for our shareholders.”The outright rejection of the bid – understood to be 16 per cent higher than the Deutsche Boerse offer – is likely to anger some NYSE Euronext shareholders, who will question whether it has been thoroughly considered.Frankfurt-based Deutsche Boerse has agreed to acquire the NYSE owner in a stock bid worth $9.5bn (£6.8bn). The combined entity would be the world’s largest exchange. It is the latest development in a wave of consolidation sweeping through the world’s exchange markets.

Here’s a growth stock I rate among my best shares to buy now

first_img Image source: Getty Images. I’ve seen On The Beach (LSE: OTB) as a tempting growth stock for a while now. I like simple, straightforward, business models that cater to high demand. Want a holiday on the beach? No need to investigate general packages to see which are best suited. Just head for On The Beach — the clue is in the name.But there’s been a problem. Well, more than one. Firstly, On The Beach shares suffered from that oh-so-common growth stock bubble. When its shares hit a high in 2018, they were trading on a trailing price-to-earnings ratio of 35. For some growth stocks, that can be cheap. But, while I like the approach, this is just a company that’s hit on a slightly different way of selling holidays.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 share price fell back. And then 2020 and the Covid-19 pandemic arrived. Growth shares in general suffered, with those in the travel business hit especially hard. At one point in March, the OTB price had dropped more than 70% year-to-date. But I think those who bought in the summer made a canny move.Second growth stock run?Since November, the OTB share price has rebounded strongly, and we’re now looking at a more modest loss of 25%. We’re likely to see more short-term pain as European travel restrictions continue to bite. But I’m convinced On The Beach is a long-term growth stock selling at a bargain price now.Before I explain why, let’s first have a look at full-year results delivered Thursday, and get them out of the way. The numbers were, in a word, horrible. But they were far from unexpected.In adjusted terms, revenue fell 52%, with pre-tax profit down 98% to just £0.6m. In GAAP terms, it’s even worse, with revenue down 76% and a pre-tax loss of £46.3m. The differences in accounting approaches, including adjusting for the impact of Covid-19 and other one-offs, means it’s hard to take much away from these figures. Well, except it’s not what growth stock investors back in 2018 were expecting.Liquidity statusBut right now, for me, it’s all about the balance sheet. On that score, I reckon chief executive Simon Cooper sums up the company’s key strength when he speaks of “The flexibility and asset light nature of our business model together with our recently strengthened balance sheet.”OTB raised £65.1m from a share placing in May. That left the company with net cash and equivalents of £51m at 30 November (excluding ring-fenced customer prepayments). It also has an undrawn £75m credit facility. How long might all of that last? The company puts its monthly cash burn at £2m in the complete absence of revenue. That indicates no problems on the survival front for the foreseeable future.The question for me is, do I expect On The Beach to get back to profit before its cash runs out? And my answer is a huge yes. I’m seeing a very tempting growth stock here, with an attractive business model, and the financial strength to see it comfortably through the crisis. It’s on my shortlist of ISA candidates. Alan Oscroft | Thursday, 10th December, 2020 | More on: OTB Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Alan Oscroft has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Photo: Bruce Myers/Anglican Church of Canada[Anglican Journal] The heads of the Anglican Church of Canada, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC), the Episcopal Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) have agreed to co-ordinate their responses to “events that transcend” their borders, such as natural disasters.They could, for instance, issue a joint pastoral letter in response to a natural calamity and invite their members to contribute to relief and recovery efforts through one of their four relief agencies, said Archdeacon Bruce Myers, the Anglican Church of Canada General Synod’s coordinator for ecumenical and interfaith relations. Myers served as staff support at the meeting.Leaders of the four churches reached this agreement when they met for a day and a half of informal talks last December in Winnipeg. Since 2010, the heads of these four churches have met for informal talks, “becoming colloquially known as the ‘Four-Way,’ ” said Myers.The Anglican Church of Canada’s primate, Archbishop Fred Hiltz, ELCIC Bishop Susan Johnson and Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori were joined in the meeting by the new presiding bishop of the ELCA, Elizabeth Eaton.“Broadly speaking, these informal conversations are aimed at exploring ways to extend the implications of our Anglican-Lutheran full communion partnerships across the international boundary,” said Myers. “What more could we be doing as North American churches in full communion?” The Anglican Church of Canada and the ELCIC have been in full communion since 2011, as have the ELCA and the Episcopal Church.The leaders also agreed to explore ways of addressing the Doctrine of Discovery“as a step towards reconciliation with indigenous people in North America,” said Myers. The Anglican Church of Canada and the Episcopal Church have both repudiated the Doctrine of Discovery.The Anglican church, however, “has only begun to try to give tangible expression to that renunciation,” said Myers. When it renounced the Doctrine of Discovery at the 2010 General Synod, the church pledged a review of its policies and programs to expose the doctrine’s historical impact and end its continuing effects on indigenous peoples. The Doctrine of Discovery was a principle of charters and acts developed by colonizing Western societies more than 500 years ago.[The Episcopal Church renounced the doctrine at its 2009 meeting of General Convention.]At the meeting, Hiltz also informed the other bishops about his church’s recent decision to designate the seventh Sunday of Easter as Jerusalem Sunday. In response, the other three churches “pledged to explore the possibility of making it a common observance,” said Myers.Each leader also agreed to prepare a devotional piece for different Sundays in Advent, to be made available for individual or congregational use in their churches during the 2014 Advent season.They also agreed to look at what they might be able to say collectively in response to an ecumenical convergence text on ecclesiology called The Church: Towards a Common Vision. The document was issued March 2013 by the Faith and Order Commission of the World Council of Churches (WCC). Described by Myers as “groundbreaking,” the text addresses what churches might say together in areas such as peace and justice in the world, and how they might grow in communion and overcome past and present divisions. Theologians “from the widest range of Christian traditions and cultures” produced the text for the WCC. Mary Frances Schjonberg says: January 9, 2014 at 4:53 pm Story is updated to reflect that.
