Forget this momentum stock and its 5% dividend yield! I’d avoid it in January

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Royston Wild | Saturday, 11th January, 2020 | More on: DC Image source: Getty Images. With Dixons Carphone (LSE: DC) due to release its next trading statement on January 21, I fear that a heavy share price drop could be lurking around the corner.Christmas 2019 was a period for many retailers to forget as the persistence of Brexit uncertainty caused many consumers to keep their pursestrings firmly tightened. According to the British Retail Consortium (BRC) on Thursday, total retail sales in the UK sank 0.1% last year, making 2019 the worst year on record.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…And chillingly for Dixons Carphone et al, spending levels declined even further over the festive period, down 0.9% year on year according to the BRC.John Lewis is one of the latest retailing giants to underline the growing stress on Britain’s retailers through less-than-cheery Christmas results that were also unpacked on Thursday. The department store group saw like-for-like sales drop 2% between November 17 and January 4, it said, continuing the steady deterioration in its top line.Tech sales tankWhat will come as particular concern to Dixons Carphone and its investors, though, is that sales of electricals and home technology products at John Lewis fell 4% from the same period 12 months earlier, suggesting that things have hardly improved in the wider market since FTSE 250 company Dixons Carphone’s own trading update of December.Then it advised that adjusted pre-tax profits had shrunk to £24m in the six months to October from £60m in the corresponding 2018 period. The company’s update indeed suggested that trading conditions have worsened here too of late, a 2% drop in like-for-like sales recorded in the second fiscal quarter versus the 2% rise recorded in the prior three-month period.It’s not a shock to see City analysts predicting that DC’s profits will drop 34% in the financial year ending April 2020. And in the current climate, it’s difficult to see how or when the tills will start getting noisier, what with Brexit uncertainty threatening to persist all the way through to the end of next year at least.More dividend woe?What’s more, the collapsing profits at Dixons Carphone, and the massive investment it is making in its staff and its stores to pull customers back through its doors, casts doubt over whether the business will grow again following last year’s dividend cut.According to current analyst consensus, a total payout of 6.88p per share is due this year, up from fiscal 2019’s 6.75p dividend. But I think that the retailer’s gigantic £1.6bn net debt pile (as of October) and its murky sales outlook suggests that another cut in fact could be in order.So despite its bargain forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 10.2 times and large 5% dividend yield, I’m not buying. Indeed, the inexplicable (at least in my opinion) 12% share price ascent since the beginning of December heightens the risk of a whopping share price drop later this month, in my opinion. It remains a share to be avoided at all costs.

Investigation launched into World Cup qualification in Europe

first_img Expand Eligibility controversy in World Cup 2019 qualifying Cook Islands replace Tahiti in Rugby World Cup 2019 qualifying Eligibility controversy in World Cup 2019 qualifying Ugly Scenes As Spain Fail To Automatically Qualify For RWC 2019 As for the reactions of Spain’s players at the end of the match, which cannot be condoned, Rugby Europe has appointed an independent judicial panel to look into their conduct.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Cook Islands replace Tahiti in Rugby World Cup… Depending on the findings of the committee, teams could be fined and removed from the World Cup qualifying process, and match results could be overturned.There is a precedent for this in that World Rugby overturned Tahiti’s win over Cook Islands after they were found to have fielded two ineligible players.However, it took seven months from that game last August to the sanctions being announced. World Rugby simply cannot take so long this time given the time constraints involved.The grand prize: The Webb Ellis Cup will be lifted in Yokahama on Saturday 2 November 2019. Photo: Getty ImagesThe play-off qualifier between Portugal and Spain was due to take place this month, but that obviously cannot be played until it is determined which team should qualify automatically from the Rugby Europe Championship and which team should be playing Portugal.The winner of that fixture – when eventually played – is then due to face Samoa in the summer in a two-legged play-off, while the loser will go into the four-team repechage tournament at the end of the year.Time is clearly of the essence and World Rugby have stressed the committee will be meeting on an “emergency basis” to get an outcome as soon as possible. There could still be a Belgium v Spain replay, but it will be dependent on the results of the eligibility investigation.Boiling over: Spanish players confront the referee after the Belgium defeat (Getty Images)Questions will now no doubt be asked about the eligibility of players at all levels of international rugby and how the capturing of players is monitored (it is the responsibility of the union to ensure all players that represent the national team are eligible to do so). The recent controversy could result in an overhaul of the processes surrounding Regulation 8 and possibly even changes to the rules. Spain’s defeat by Belgium saw Romania qualify automatically for Japan 2019, but with Romanian officials in charge in Brussels – something Spain raised concerns about before the fixture – World Rugby deemed it was a serious enough incident for the match to be replayed. If Spain had beaten Belgium, they would have qualified automatically as Europe 1.World Rugby’s statement said their concerns specifically related “to the process and perception of Rugby Europe’s appointment of a match official team that was not neutral in the context of qualification and failing to act on Spain’s concerns in respect of the appointment”.Since the match there have been various reports of teams fielding ineligible players in the Rugby Europe Championship and World Rugby have now convened an independent disputes committee to look into all these issues.World Rugby said: “Given this information concerns potential breaches of World Rugby regulations, and given the complexity and interconnectivity of the issues, a full and independent review is warranted. This is in the best interests of the sport, teams and fans and is fully supported by Rugby Europe.”Related: What are rugby’s eligibility rules?

Since the existing house is made from precast concrete walls and panels, it will be unappropriated to modify and add more façade loads to the building structure. Thus, from the limitation, we created a new façade layer as a “Shell” covering both buildings by composing with the exterior and landscape wall and space.Save this picture!Courtesy of Kirin Design & Living“White Canvas” is the designing concept we brought up as the modern minimalist white planes with a composition of textures which are steel mesh, aluminum composite panels, and simple paint finish wall.

first_imgVirgin Money Foundation opens first grants round Tagged with: Funding North East Howard Lake | 14 August 2015 | News The Virgin Money Foundation has announced its first round of funding, which is open to organisations that achieve long term impact in communities in the North East of England.The funding will be for organisations that:• enable homeless people or people at risk of homelessness to find a home, especially through increasing the supply of affordable rented properties.• provide opportunities for youth education, training and enterprise.• create and support community and social enterprise.• fund feasibility studies into larger capital projects that will bring people and money into a deprived community.Applications are invited for funding from £10,000 to £50,000 from organisations working in  the local authority areas of Darlington, Durham, Gateshead, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Newcastle upon Tyne, North Tyneside, Northumberland, Redcar and Cleveland, South Tyneside, Stockton on Tees, and Sunderland.Grants are for running costs, not capital costs. They are for one year only.The closing date for applications to the Virgin Money Foundation’s first funding round is 28 September 2015.The Foundation, the creation of which was announced last year, will subsequently extend its funding activities across the UK.“Not enough” says Labour MPThe North East of England was where the Northern Rock Foundation was active before it closed. Virgin Money took over the Northern Rock bank following its nationalisation in 2012 following the financial crisis of 2008.Chi Onwurah, Labour MP for Newcastle Upon Tyne, criticised the amount being provided by Virgin Money Foundation, contrasting it with the work of the Northern Rock Foundation. She said:“Before it got caught up in the consequences of casino type financial speculation, Northern Rock reflected the values of the North East by generously investing in local good causes. I would like to see Virgin Money do the same.” Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  24 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Rumors of White House Action on RFS False

first_img Rumors of White House Action on RFS False Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Mar 1, 2017 Facebook Twitter SHARE Corn and soybean futures spiked sharply higher on Tuesday based on rumors that President Trump was going to issue an executive order that would incrase the demand for ethanol and biofuel products. This had been reported by several media organizations. Late Tuesday afternoon, however, a leading industry organization said the rumors were false.  Growth Energy thanks the White House for putting a stop to the circulating rumors that an alleged “deal” had been made to change the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) point of obligation. Tuesday afternoon the White House confirmed to several media outlets that no executive order is imminent.“We look forward to a constructive, ongoing dialogue with this administration and lawmakers on Capitol Hill about policies that will continue to uphold what has been the nation’s most successful energy policy, reducing oil imports and cutting transportation-related emissions,” Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor said. “Under the RFS, the point of obligation – which obligates oil refiners to blend renewable fuel into our transportation fuel supply – is working as intended and is making sure that consumers have a choice of fuel at the gas pump. President Trump has voiced a strong commitment to the RFS and continued progress for homegrown fuels, and we are heartened by the White House’s quick efforts to silence these rumors. We look forward to a constructive dialogue with the administration on biofuel policy.” Home Energy Rumors of White House Action on RFS False SHARE Previous articleGrowth Energy Denounces Illegitimate Efforts to Rewrite RFSNext articlePOTUS Rolls Back WOTUS Gary Truittlast_img read more
