first_img Share LONDON landlord Shaftesbury yesterday tapped investors for £102m in a share placement to help fund acquisitions as more assets come up for sale in its core West End market. The real estate investor, which owns more than 500 shops, restaurants and bars in the West End, said it had placed 22.7m new ordinary shares at 450p each – a five per cent discount to its Wednesday closing price. Shaftesbury said opportunities to buy property assets in West End locations were increasing as the government and local authorities sold assets, and as building sales delayed by the global financial crisis returned to market.The firm said it has spent the majority of the £149m raised during its last rights issue in 2009 on acquiring new buildings. “This placing will ensure we have the financial resources to take advantage of an acceleration in rarely available long-term investments now emerging, particularly in and around Berwick Street,” said chief executive Jonathan Lane. JPMorgan Securities and Execution Noble were the joint bookrunners for the placing, equivalent to 9.99 per cent of existing Shaftesbury shares.The group also said it was evaluating new long-term debt options to bolster its capital structure.

first_img23rd October 2018 | By contenteditor Betting on NFL American football propelled Mississippi’s sports wagering revenues up to $31.8m (£24.4m/€27.7m) in September, according to the latest figures.The total represented a sharp increase on the first full month of legalised sports betting in Mississippi, which went live with its regulated market on August 1.American football was responsible for more than half of all bets in September, with sportsbooks taking a total of $22.9m in wagers. The 2018 NFL season kicked off in early September.Punters generated $5.5m of taxable revenue for the stake – a huge increase on $644,000 of taxable revenue, $7.7m in sales, in month one.The state’s win percentage of 17.3% – the total revenue divided by the taxable revenue – was also a significant improvement on the 10% registered in August and placed Mississippi some way ahead of the Nevada average of between 5% and 7%.Mississippi was also boosted in September by the launch of a host of sportsbooks that were not live until late August.During the first month of regulation, just two sportsbooks were open and taking bets for the entire period. MGM was the only company to be live on day one.Another 18 sportsbooks opened on August 17 or later, with the total number now standing at 22 active sportsbooks across the state.Mississippi, one of several states to have legalised sports betting in the wake of the Supreme Court’s ruling on PASPA, is still some way behind New Jersey in terms of betting activity.New Jersey, which also moved to regulate sports wagering post-PASPA, took a total of $40.6m in its first full month and $95.6m in August, the latter of which included revenue from online and mobile.However, Mississippi does not yet offer sports wagering via online or mobile platforms, placing it at a disadvantage to the likes of New Jersey and Nevada.Mississippi, with about three million inhabitants, is also a considerably smaller market than New Jersey, which is home to three times as many people.According to the latest statistics, Mississippi also has the lowest median household income of all of the country’s mainland states.Image: leyla.a NFL drives Mississippi sports wagering Sports betting revenue rockets to $31.8m in September Finance AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwittercenter_img Topics: Finance Sports betting Regions: US Mississippi Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Addresslast_img read more

In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img Royston Wild | Tuesday, 21st April, 2020 | More on: SCS Tuesday afternoon has brought fresh tension for ISA investors. UK stock markets are extending their decline as fears over the macroeconomic landscape mount. The troubles in the oil industry might be commanding the majority of headlines on the financial pages. But today brought more worrying signals for beleaguered retailers as well.I recently explained why fresh trading data from Associated British Foods spells bad news for Britain’s beleaguered clothing retailers. The evidence of a worsening storm continues to mount elsewhere too. John Lewis was also chiming in with troubling trading news on Tuesday.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…Sales set to sinkThe British shopping institution has been in the doghouse because of weak consumer confidence caused by Brexit uncertainty. The more recent pandemic outbreak, however, means total sales at John Lewis could crash 35% in 2020, it says. It’s a shocking forecast that assumes “significant sales decline between April and June, and weak sales thereafter,” the retailer commented.John Lewis is suffering from falling demand for its more profitable lines. As the business succinctly noted: “We are buying more Scrabble but fewer sofas.” It’s no wonder sales of big-ticket, discretionary items are slumping. Britons are prioritising essential items like groceries and putting off purchases of expensive goods in expectation of a severe economic downturn. Those final comments should certainly give ScS Group (LSE: SCS) more to worry about.Shutdown stressThe furniture retailer announced it was axing the interim dividend earlier this month in response to the Covid-19 crisis. It comes after ScS said it was shuttering its stores, its distribution network, and its head office to protect both workers and customers.The business had seen sales begin to decline before the UK-wide lockdown came into play though. It witnessed reduced footfall in the week leading up to 17 March, it said. That John Lewis update shows ScS could face a battle to get sales moving once quarantine measures are rolled back and tough economic conditions persist too.Go for better ISA buysOf course, ScS has been in some trouble owing to the uncertain political and economic picture created by Brexit. Like-for-like orders were down 4.4% during the six months to January. The UK’s future relationship with Europe might not be top of the list of Britons’ concerns right now. But it’s an extra problem that looms over the retail sector for this year and beyond.City analysts expect earnings to sink 19% in the current financial year (to July), a figure that could be chopped down should quarantine measures remain in place into the summer. Estimates of a 4% bottom-line rebound are in danger of being culled too, given the economic shock that’s rapidly developing.ScS is cheap on paper. The company sports a forward price-to-earnings (or P/E) ratio of 6.5 times. This is a signal of the enormous risks it faces in the near-term and beyond though. I’d happily avoid this particular cheap stock and put my ISA cash to hard work elsewhere. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now! According to news reports, Europe’s medical institutions are beefing up their resources in case of a second wave of Covid-19 infections. And I heard an interesting interview this morning with Mark Carney, the ex-Governor of the Bank of England. He observed that businesses could be retreating from globalised, just-in-time supply chains. Instead, perhaps there’s a trend towards localised, just-in-case procurement.Preparation is everything in choppy marketsThe theme that links these two stories is preparation. Indeed, much of the world seemed under-prepared for managing a pandemic. That seemed true when it came to personal protective equipment (PPE), ventilators and bed space. And globalised supply chains made catching up with demand more difficult.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…Indeed, when human economic activity and transport systems essentially shut down, it’s hard to make and distribute stuff. But had there been just-in-case stockpiles and local supply chains, maybe managing the pandemic wouldn’t have been as fraught with difficulty as it proved to be.And there’s a massive read-across for businesses in general, whatever they produce. This pandemic has taught the world much, and we may see big changes in the way companies and institutions operate going forward.But the lessons can be applied to many walks of life, including investing in this choppy stock market. We never know what is going to happen next. Right now, for example, I think the stock market is behaving in a conflicted way. Investors seem to be focusing on the twin possibilities of a second Covid-induced crash and a sharp recovery because of the return of economic activity as lockdowns ease.5 steps I’d take right nowMeanwhile, we investors can make ourselves ready for either outcome by preparing now. And one way to minimise the effects of a second market crash, if it comes, is to invest with a long-term perspective in mind. For example, any dip in the share-price chart that arrives over the coming weeks or months could look far less significant in your portfolio 10 years from now.Another good strategy is to forget about the market averages such as the FTSE 100. Instead, focus on the news flowing from the businesses behind your shares. If you are buying individual stocks, you are not buying the entire market. And individual shares can behave differently to the aggregated sum of all the stocks in the market.A third way to mitigate the volatility in this choppy stock market is to invest in stages. Regular monthly investments can work well. That way, you’ll rarely be committing all your funds at a general market high or a low. In some ways, such pound-cost averaging can help to iron out volatility.If you are worried about the economic uncertainty in the air, you could hold some money back rather than investing it all.  And finally, you may also wish to go through your portfolio to weed out any holdings where you have low conviction about the strength of the underlying business.But perhaps the biggest way you can prepare right now is by working hard on your watch list of great businesses that you’d one day like to own some shares in. Preparation now could pay you handsomely down the road. Image source: Getty Images Kevin Godbold has no position in any share mentioned.

Mental health charities, health support services, and organisations supporting people living in poverty were the top three issues to receive the funding through young people from throughout the country representing causes they care about in a bid to secure their school’s grant from the foundation.Pre-lockdown, students took part in a range of classroom-based activities to learn about philanthropy and the needs of their communities. An entire year group at each school was split into teams with one, deemed to have the most convincing and creative presentation, securing their school’s £3,000 grant.When lockdown was announced, The Wood Foundation announced an adaptation to the process to give students who had not completed their programme the opportunity to advocate and raise funds for the local response to Covid-19.Jonathan Christie, Deputy UK Director at The Wood Foundation, said:“The sums secured by young people for local communities is incredible. This is a unique form of delegated grant-making and puts the power in students’ hands, ensuring there’s representation of the causes which matter to them. As well as funds, there are vital awareness raising and relationship components, as well as a range of skills development opportunities for the young people themselves.”Gillian Dunsmuir leads YPI at Stewarton Academy in Kilmarnock.

first_imgThe first major protest against Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan took place outside the Redford Theater the evening of Feb. 10 as Duggan delivered his second annual “State of the City” address. Duggan is the first white mayor of Detroit in 40 years and a political cohort of right-wing Gov. Rick Snyder.Protesters demanded the mayor declare a state of emergency in the city due to 30,000 water shutoffs last year; 62,000 tax foreclosures looming this year; and no end to chronic unemployment and growing poverty. They demanded Duggan stop all water shutoffs; put a moratorium on foreclosures; restore retirees’ pensions and health benefits stolen by the banks during the city’s recent bankruptcy; and boot the Veolia corporation out of the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department.The boisterous demonstration was multinational, with youth and older activists crowding the sidewalk by the theater, undeterred by the large police presence. “Corporate money well spent, Duggan works for the 1 percent!” was one of the popular chants. The protest ended with a “people’s state of the city speakout.”Initiated by the Moratorium NOW! Coalition to Stop Foreclosures, Evictions & Utility Shutoffs, the action was endorsed and participated in by such other groups as Detroit Active and Retired Employees Association (DAREA); Detroit Eviction Defense; People’s Water Board; FIST (Fight Imperialism, Stand Together); and the Detroit Light Brigade.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
