See all posts by Karl Loomes Karl Loomes | Thursday, 30th April, 2020 | More on: BARC Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. It’s been a big week for earnings. Oil and banking majors in particular have been making headlines. At the banks, the story seems the same – massive provisions for bad loans being made in anticipation of coming defaults. Even with this however, the Barclays (LSE: BARC) share price has been holding up well.Quarterly resultsOne reason for the robust Barclays share price is that not all of the news was bad. For Q1, it said this week that credit impairment jumped five-fold to £2.1bn, reducing profit by 42% to £605m. Worse than forecast, but still a decent profit all things considered.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…It was helped by a 20% increase in group revenue to £6.3bn, itself brought about from the trading arm of the branch. Barclays’ investment bank saw a 77% increase in income as volatile trading made for high volumes. This is the best performance for the trading side since 2014.It is also worth noting, of course, that the loan provisions are just that – provisions. They are preparation for the potential of loan defaults, not actual defaults themselves. Reporting standards aside, at the moment these are not realised losses. The question for those interested in the Barclays share price is, will they become real?The Barclays share price in 2020The overriding issue for the Barclays share price is how badly the lockdown and the coronavirus will impact its customers. There is a lot of potential for it to be very bad. Numerous small businesses will likely not survive. Individuals will lose jobs, and if the downturn sparks a recession, the domino effect will make things even worse.The company’s CEO Jes Staley warned: “This is unprecedented territory that we are in”. He should know, he worked in JPMorgan’s operating committee during the 2008 financial crisis.Barclays is also particularly exposed to credit card debt – its Barclaycard division accounting for more than 40% of the bad loan provisions. This is something of an unknown quantity at the moment. While government measures are in place to help prevent individuals hitting financial rock bottom, they may not be enough for many to cover their debt.For investors, the end of lockdown may be the perfect storm for the Barclays share price. Suspended dividends are unlikely to be reintroduced immediately. The extra revenue gains from high volume trading will fade as the market calms down. At the same time, the true extent of lockdown and failing businesses will start to be felt.Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying things will definitely go badly, but I think they certainly could. This is the unknown quantity for me that makes investing in banks a little too risky right now.It is perfectly possible that the Barclays share price is a bargain right now, and in six months’ time we might see it back up above 150p. However I can also see potential for a very bad year to come. If the Barclays share price goes the way it did during the 2008 financial crisis, it has room to halve yet.

Stock market crash: I think the Tesco share price could help me get rich

first_img 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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Rupert Hargreaves | Wednesday, 28th October, 2020 | More on: TSCO I think the Tesco (LSE: TSCO) share price could be one of the best assets to own for long-term investors. The company’s defensive nature also indicates it may be one of the best stocks to own to protect one’s wealth in the stock market crash. What’s more, as one of the largest retailers in the UK, Tesco has some unique competitive advantages. These should help the business stay ahead of its peers in the current uncertain operating environment. 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…Stock market crash protection As the second wave of coronavirus builds, I’ve been looking for companies that performed well the first time around. Supermarkets did exceptionally well, thanks to a surge in demand for food and essential products. As a result, the Tesco share price proved to be a safe haven in March’s stock market crash. Based on this performance, I think investors could benefit from buying the stock in the second wave. In its latest trading update, Tesco revealed that food and drink sales jumped in the first half of 2020. Although reduced fuel sales did drag on overall results, the food division’s enhanced operating performance largely offset this downturn. And thanks to this performance, the company has been able to stick by its dividend commitments for the year. Even though management has attracted some criticism for paying a dividend in the crisis, Tesco’s commitment to the payout and its investors is a testament to its diversified and defensive business model, in my opinion. At the time of wiring, the Tesco share price offers a dividend yield of 3.8%. Analysts reckon this figure could hit 4.3% next year. Time to buy the Tesco share price?However, despite all of the company’s attractive qualities, the stock has been falling this year. It’s now trading down around 25% since the beginning of the year. Further, after recent declines, shares in the retailer are trading below the lows of March’s stock market crash. This doesn’t seem to make much sense. We know Tesco’s sales remained strong in the last coronavirus lockdown, and it seems likely the same will happen the second time around. That implies investors are far too pessimistic about the firm’s outlook. I reckon this could be a buying opportunity for long-term investors. As the country’s largest retailer, Tesco has tremendous competitive advantages over the rest of the market. It’s unlikely these will disappear any time soon.The company also owns wholesaler Booker, which supplies thousands of smaller retailers around the country. Once again, this is a strong competitive advantage that would be very difficult to replicate. Therefore, I think now could be the time to take advantage of the recent Tesco share price weakness and buy a share of this business for the long term. Consumers will always need food and drink, and this supermarket giant’s countrywide network can supply these products daily, with some stores back to 24/7 hours.  Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’!

Heineken Cup Round Six: Winners and Losers

first_imgIt’s snow joke: Edinburgh’s form has been poorOspreysFair play to Benneton Treviso, but fans of the Welsh region must be spitting vitriol following a narrow loss in Italy, especially after their side performed so fantastically against Leicester Tigers a week before.They may not have had the same strength of squad they had in their last outing, and perhaps there is a hint of old-world rugby snobbery here, but the contrast in approach and accuracy is something coaches despise.Dan Biggar is a confidence player, and Wales will be hoping this minor setback will not be carried into camp. As a region, they are well placed and can still improve further in the RaboDirect Pro12. However, if they do not, it will be no surprise if the highly sought after Kahn Fotuali’i signs elsewhere.Edinburgh RugbyNo wins. No draws. No bonus points. No points at all. Three tries for. A whopping 18 against. That is a team who were semi finalists last season. You’d rarely see this level of regression anywhere outside of a Star Wars convention. Big changes are needed from the Scottish franchise, if they are to live up to any potential that was displayed a year ago.If not, that victory against Toulouse in last year’s quarter finals, and those games against Racing Metro, will become a one-off memory. Nothing more. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Over and out: Four-times champions Toulouse have dropped down to the Amlin Cup and will draw big crowdsBy Alan DymockAFTER THE final pool matches at the weekend we now know the quarter-finalists, who drops into the Amlin Challenge Cup and who goes back home, wondering what could have been and desperately trying to fool everyone else into thinking that the lack of ‘European hangovers’ on the horizon is a good thing.Here are the winners and losers from Round Six.WinnersThe Amlin Challenge CupIt seems odd to state that another competition has benefitted so much from the last round of the Heineken, but it is true. With current champions Leinster, former champions Toulouse and former Amlin champions Biarritz tumbling out of the Heineken Cup and landing in the Amlin quarter-finals there is a feeling that the perpetual bridesmaids may get their day. After all, London Wasps versus Leinster, Gloucester versus Biaritz and Perpignan versus Toulouse should draw big crowds. Picking a winner in this tournament could be harder than picking a finisher in the Grand National.Hat-trick: Simon Zebo has been on fireSimon Zebo and MunsterAfter his hat-trick heroism, Simon Zebo should be the name on every Munsterman’s lips.Indeed, after his side’s loss to Saracens on Sunday, Michael Bradley revealed that he had shared a conversation with Zebo the week before, in which he urged the back-three speedster to make amends for missed opportunities in Edinburgh by scoring three tries the following week.  Someone should have nipped off to the bookies, because he completed the job in quick time against Racing Metro on Sunday. The haul was enough to see Munster squeeze past rivals Leinster and take a spot in the last eight. They face a tough ask at the Stoop against Harlequins in the quarters, but their showing against the Parisian outfit showed a glimmer of the efficiency of old.Leicester TigersToby Flood may have had another disciplinary setback, earning a yellow card for a slapping a ball down, but his kicking from the tee was enough to see the Tigers past Toulouse and into the quarter-finals, with a 9-5 victory at Welford Road. Despite a Yoann Huget try coming from a bumbling Mathew Tait, it was not the French giants’ day. Brawny hulk Louis Picamoles was denied what looked like certain try by the TMO and Lionel Beauxis and Luke McAlister were as accurate as an online dating profile when it came to kicking at goal. Beyond this, though, it was really the Tigers’ tenacity that saw them triumph. Pete HorneIf you have not seen a clip of the Scot’s weaving run at the death, which gave Glasgow Warriors the win and ensured that Saints could not even parachute into the Amlin, then do yourself a favour and check it out [clip below]. This is the definition of timing. Not only was it in the final throes of a match, but it came two days before Horne was due to roll into the Scotland Six Nations camp. Big play from a promising player.LosersTom JohnsonThe redoubtable Exeter Chiefs flanker may be no stranger to succeeding against the odds, but he faces a tough battle getting back into Stuart Lancaster’s back row for the Six Nations after injury scythed him down at the weekend. Exeter’s Rob Baxter said he doubted reconstructive surgery was needed after Johnson hobbled off with a damaged knee during the Chiefs’ loss to Leinster on Saturday. However, he will almost certainly miss the Calcutta Cup clash and with Tom Wood, Tom Croft or James Haskell in the mix, it could be very hard for Johnson to find an opportunity to plead his case to Lancaster. A cruel blow.

Rugby World Cup Daily – Player numbers around the world

first_imgTuesday Sep 13, 2011 Rugby World Cup Daily – Player numbers around the world After a few days break, we’re heading into the next round of the World Cup, as three games take place in New Zealand tomorrow. The latest Rugby World Cup Daily show catches up with some of the teams, and previews the games. As yet there have been no major upsets, but the so called minnows have all performed well, proving that great progress is being made in those countries. As if often the case, when they’re able to get their best players together and find some continuity as a squad, they’re able to put up a good fight.Japan, Namibia, Romania, and the USA have all put in strong first half performances and in some cases, really tested the opposition. Neutrals will be hoping to see more of the same tomorrow as Namibia, Canada, and Georgia take to the park. For the latter two, it’s their first game of the tournament.Samoa play Namibia in what you’d think will be a brutally physical contest, but you’d pick the Samoans to come out on top with their experience and strike power out wide. Tonga against Canada will be an interesting one, but the same applies, and the Tongan might should be too much for Canada’s fight. Once again, massive physical contest, and those Cannucks won’t back down.In fact all three games come in similar moulds, as Georgia will throw themselves about the park against Scotland too, so that game will be worth watching. You’d Scotland won’t have too much trouble with them, although stranger things have happened. Remember Ireland in 2007?In today’s RWC Daily show a lot of emphasis us put on the smaller nations, with some interesting insight from the Namibian camp. Now is as good a time as ever to share this great infographic with you, created by the talented guys at Ruggerblogger, using IRB Stats as reference.As explained on their website, the large circle for each nation is the Total Number of Registered Rugby Players (TRP) in that country, men, women, boys and girls. Each large circle has a smaller circle inside it, in proportion, and that represents how many of those players are Senior Males (SM).Have a look  at the graphic above and video below, and feel free to share your thoughts as a comment about either, both, or your predictions for the next round of matches.

Leota appeared before an RFU discplinary panel last night. With time almost up in the match, Brew and Leota got in one another’s path and the New Zealand born Samoan flung him to the ground. He then charged at him a bit, before flinging him to the turf a second time. A scuffle broke out but soon died down.Upon referall to the TMO, referee Tom Foley chose to only yellow card Leota, despite the TMO hinting that it may have been a little more severe. The commentators seemed to concur.Brew was not injured, despite coming very close to landing awkwardly on his head.Leota was charged with dangerous tackling – Law 10.4(e) – by the citing commissioner and subsequently given a two-week ban at the discplinary hearing.He will be free to play again on October 25th.ALSO: View 5 Amazing Tries from the Aviva PremiershipBelow are match highlights, with the incident at the end (not available in all regions)credit: premiership rugbyADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

All reports and other forms of content are checked before publication. In the past two months, Etemad-e Melli has been printed several times with columns left blank because articles were censored. Help by sharing this information March 18, 2021 Find out more Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 Follow the news on Iran Reporters Without Borders is concerned about the situation of imprisoned journalists, especially Kivan Samimi Behbani and Henghameh Shahidi, and reiterates its condemnation of government harassment of the print media, in which the latest case was yesterday’s suspension of former presidential candidate Mehdi Karoubi’s daily, Etemad-e Melli, for publishing reports about torture and rape in Iran’s prisons. The onetime editor of Nameh (“The Letter”), an independent weekly that was suspended in 2005, Behbani is now a freelance journalist. He has not been able to contact his family since his arrest on 13 June. Shahidi, who writes for various pro-reform publications, was arrested on 29 June. Her mother, who has only been able to visit her once, on 13 August, says she is very worried about her health because she has heart problems. News All these releases are provisional. The journalists can be summoned and re-imprisoned at any time while waiting for their cases to come to trial. June 9, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders has learned that Kaveh Mozafari, an online journalist who was arrested on 9 July, was freed yesterday, while photographers Marjan Abdolahyan and Satyar Emami were freed on 10 August. Documentary filmmakers Mahnaz Mohammadi and Rokhsareh Ghaemmaghami, who were arrested on 29 July in south Tehran’s Behesht-e Zahra cemetery, were released in the first few days of August. Yesterday, the Tehran public prosecutor’s office notified the ministry of culture and Islamic orientation’s press office that Etemad-e Melli had been suspended “until further notice” for “publishing illegal reports and articles threatening national security.” IranMiddle East – North Africa Receive email alerts June 11, 2021 Find out more Organisation News News Government agents prevented yesterday’s issue of Etemad-e Melli from leaving the printing press on the evening of 16 August because of an article by Karoubi – one Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s rivals in the June presidential election – responding to attacks and criticism made against him in pro-government newspapers. to go further News As regards detained journalists, Reporters Without Borders is particularly worried about Behbani and Shahidi because it has been told that they have been in solitary confinement since their arrests and are being subjected to a great deal of pressure. “Like every other kind of person jailed since the 12 June presidential election, journalists are being tortured and mistreated,” Reporters Without Borders said. “No one, not even their lawyers, has been able to get information about their cases. The lives of these imprisoned journalists are in danger. We would like representatives of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to be allowed to enter Iran and visit the prisons.”last_img read more

Irshad Hanif.The petitioner advocate, Miriam Fozia Rahman, stated that the instant petition was all about right to dignity and honour. “Disease does not have a religion. There cannot be a Muslim Tuberculosis or a Christian Cancer,” she said.Drawn by M. Qayam Ud Din & Fozia Rahman, the plea states that the the medical and public health emergency during outbreak of a pandemic may cause distress, anxiety and social stigma and therefore escalate prejudices against people and a particular community which amounts to them being targeted for spreading the novel Coronavirus.Petitioner draws references to the Tablighi Jamaat incident which made national headlines,”….the media, instead of exercising restraint, reported the entire incident with a communal colour with phrases such as Corona Jihad, Corona Terrorism, Islamic Insurrection, Corona Bomb etc. It was thus apparent that the unfortunate incident of the Tablighi Jamaat was being used to demonise and blame the entire Muslim community”This, the plea states was done by the ruling Government to distract the public from the failures of its own policies.Further, the plea states that a number of several fake news and videos circulated on different social media platforms, showing muslims in a bad light. “…social media was flooded with such videos which resulted in collected demonisation and vilification of the Muslim community because of its religious identity” It is averred that the “propaganda” in a time when the country is fighting the pandemic should be harmony and unity among citizens of Indian but shockingly, Arvind Kejriwal, in his capacity as chief minister of Delhi, supported by reporting in his tweets and other modes, deliberately used a separate caption “masjid markaz”.”It is submitted that such reporting has triggered communal antagonism and has also perpetrated hate and resulted in fissiparous tendencies gaining foothold and affected the communal harmony…”Next Storylast_img read more
