G20 agreement on currencies propels FTSE 100 up despite fall in bank stocks

first_img Share KCS-content whatsapp Monday 25 October 2010 8:14 pm G20 agreement on currencies propels FTSE 100 up despite fall in bank stocks BRITAIN’S top shares ended higher yesterday, supported by strength in miners as metals and crude prices rose amid a weaker dollar after G20 finance ministers agreed to avoid competitive currency devaluations.At the close, the FTSE 100 was up 10.61 points, or 0.2 per cent, at 5,751.98, just below last Thursday’s six-month closing high. It hit a 5,794.31 high during the session.Heavyweight miners led the blue chips advance as copper prices rose to a 27-month high after the dollar fell following the agreement at the weekend G20 meeting of finance ministers.Chilean copper miner Antofagasta was the top FTSE riser, up 4.1 per cent, helped by a Goldman Sachs upgrade to “buy” from “neutral”.“Miners provided London’s fuel but as the session wore on there was little else to keep up the momentum, and so Wall Street saw its early gains eroded, along with the FTSE,” said Mic Mills, head of electronic trading at ETX Capital.Away from commodities, Burberry was a strong gainer, up 3.2 per cent as investors speculated LVMH’s purchase of a minority stake in Hermes may spark bid interest in the sector.On the second line, spill-over speculative interest saw the London Stock Exchange gain five per cent after Singapore Exchange’s A$8.4bn (£5.3bn) agreed takeover bid for Australian ASX.Banks, were weak, however, with Lloyds Banking Group the worst blue-chip perfomer, down 5.4 per cent after Credit Suisse cut its target for the state-backed bank.Elsewhere, Invensys shed 2.8 per cent as UBS cut its rating to “neutral” from “buy” in a review of capital goods stocks, saying the sector may have “overshot fair value”.

JD Wetherspoon and Carnival shares: is now the time to buy ahead of a second lockdown?

JD Wetherspoon and Carnival shares: is now the time to buy ahead of a second lockdown? Image source: Getty Images. Investors in JD Wetherspoon (LSE: JDW) and Carnival (CCL) shares have already had a year to forget. Now, with some of the country poised for tighter lockdown restrictions — akin to a second lockdown for millions of people — things look like they’re about to get even worse.Tighter restrictions mean that pubs will now close in the highest-risk areas. Nobody knows how long these restrictions will last. Likewise, with Covid cases escalating rapidly in most of Europe, companies that rely on travel look set for a prolonged bout of misery. There are now very few places abroad that UK citizens can travel to freely.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…While this undoubtedly affects a great many companies, Wetherspoon and Carnival could be impacted immediately. If I held either of these two FTSE 250 shares, I reckon I’d sell out now and invest in something that would help me sleep a bit better at night.Last ordersWetherspoon was quick to reopen after the initial lockdown closed all of its pubs back in March. By the end of August, more than 95% of its pubs had reopened. But not even Rishi Sunak’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme was enough to maintain revenues at last year’s levels. From the beginning of July to mid-August, like-for-like sales were 17% below the prior year.Following lengthy pub closures and the erosion of profit margins, the company expects to make a loss for this year. That’s not exactly surprising. But Wetherspoon’s shares still look overpriced, in my opinion. The shares trade at 16 times last year’s earnings, a period that was unaffected by Covid. That wouldn’t be cheap in a normal year. New restrictions mean the group will remain unprofitable for longer and will take longer to recover. In my mind, that’s still not reflected in the Wetherspoon share price.Carnival shares have further to sinkCarnival has been more affected by Covid than most, with its cruise business effectively shut down for six months. Only in the last month has the company resumed a very small number of its cruises. This is reflected in its financial performance. In the nine months to the end of August, the group made a whopping net loss of over £6bn, with revenue down 67% from the year before.A deteriorating Covid outlook has forced the group to cancel the majority of its cruises until next spring. It still has £6bn in cash, but a monthly cash burn of over £500m means that might not last long. What’s more, the group has borrowed so much just to survive the next year that repayments are going to eat into profits for the foreseeable future. It owes £5bn in repayments in 2023 alone. The Carnival share price has already fallen over 70% this year, but I think it’s got further to fall yet.Holding Wetherspoon or Carnival shares isn’t just about whether the companies will survive the next year or two. It’s also about what the travel and hospitality sectors will look like in a few year’s time. I have no doubt that the hospitality sector will eventually recover. But I do have doubts about what the cruise industry will look like in the future. For a good night’s sleep, I think it’s best to sell shares in these companies now.

Lions commit to South Africa tour

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Lions centre Jamie Roberts tries to break through South Africa’s defence in 2009 (Getty Images) Lions commit to South Africa tourThe British & Irish Lions are committed to touring South Africa this summer as scheduled in July and August.There has been lots of speculation over the 2021 tour due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with contingency plans of hosting matches in the UK and Australia considered, but the Lions Board has now confirmed its preference to proceed with the tour to South Africa.British & Irish Lions chairman Jason Leonard said: “After reviewing information relating to the various contingency scenarios being considered, I can confirm that the Board’s intended position is for the tour to go ahead as scheduled in South Africa in 2021.“We acknowledge that there is a significant amount of work still to be undertaken to deliver a robust Covid-19 countermeasure plan to ensure a successful, safe and uninterrupted tour. SA Rugby will have our full support to help implement this plan.”Packed stands during the 2009 South Africa v Lions series (Getty Images)However, there are still big question marks over whether fans will be able to attend matches – either those based in South Africa or travellers from overseas. Having to play matches behind closed doors would have a significant financial impact on SA Rugby and could still put the tour in doubt.SA Rugby president Mark Alexander said: “We appreciate the Lions’ faith and share their desire to see a safe and successful tour.“We have been in regular contact with our government to make that a reality against the backdrop of the pandemic and its predicted progression over the coming months.“There are serious financial implications for SA Rugby, should the event take place without any supporters in attendance, and we cannot ignore that in our considerations. But we are determined that the eventual outcome will deliver the best occasion and experience for players, supporters and our commercial partners.”The original 2021 Lions tour schedule could also be changed because of those considerations.Jason Leonard leads out the Lions during the 1997 tour to South Africa (Getty Images)Leonard added: “Every British and Irish player dreams of wearing the famous red jersey, and players from the southern hemisphere aspire to be part of a Lions series. We owe it to the current players vying for a place in both squads to ensure they can become part of Lions history.“We are very much looking forward to taking on South Africa for what promises to be a highly-competitive series against the reigning world champions.”The pre-tour Test between the Lions and Japan, which is due to take place at BT Murrayfield on Saturday 26 June, is still in the schedule, but a decision on crowd size will be made closer to the time to ensure it is in line with UK Government regulations.Lions commit to South Africa tour – Rugby World VerdictLet’s start with the positives, writes RW editor Sarah Mockford. The announcement gives us clarity on what the plans are and proceeding with the South Africa schedule maintains the Lions’ touring ethos. Preference of Lions Board is to stick to scheduled playing window The beauty of the Lions is the best players in Britain and Ireland travelling to the other side of the world to try to overcome the odds of playing in hostile environments, and Jason Leonard and his board are sticking with that tradition.However, fans are also an integral part of the Lions and it still looks extremely unlikely that the usual red hordes will be able to head south from the UK and Ireland. Even having home fans in attendance is far from assured, with matches played behind closed doors still a distinct possibility.Having said that, fans are also integral to the Six Nations and 2021 has still delivered a cracking championship without them, although it would have been even better with them! It’s also hard to see this announcement as 100% confirmation that the tour will go ahead – the Lions themselves describe it as an “intended position”, so there are no guarantees. If the Covid situation worsens over the coming months, we could be looking at a postponement until 2025.There is still much to iron out in terms of Covid protocols as well. If there is an outbreak in a team, it could see one or even two matches cancelled – there’s no room in the schedule to postpone – so minimising the risk of transmission is crucial.Jumping on a plane to a new venue every few days is the normal way of things on a Lions tour, but given the pandemic could matches be limited to one or two locations? It may be easier to reduce the risk if each team sets up camp in a single hotel, creating a ‘bubble’ where they can control the environment, but that can hardly be described as a ‘tour’.So plenty of unanswered questions and much work for the organisers to do, but at least there is a plan of action. And let’s hope fans, even if limited in number, are permitted in stadiums when the tour begins in July. Can’t get to the shops? Download the digital edition of Rugby World straight to your tablet.

We also know what it is like to walk down a street in our own neighborhood and fear for our safety. As mothers and grandmothers, we know the challenges of raising a child in today’s world, especially the risk of being judged and profiled for a particular style of clothing.Trayvon’s tragic death calls us all to recommit ourselves to the dismantling of racism and all forms of oppression. Our nation, neighborhoods and religious communities have been given a wake up call about the lethal combination of prejudice, violence and the appalling lack of gun control and vigilantism which has led to a rise in violent shootings and murder. As Christians gather to observe Holy Week and remember the last days of the life of Jesus and the consequences of power unchecked by prophetic witness, it is an especially appropriate time to consider the effects of violence and mob mentality.We call on all Episcopalians and all people of faith to continue to raise our voices in protest and demand answers so that justice might be served. In the timeless words of Martin Luther King Jr., injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.Let us heed the words of the Prophet Micah (6:8). Perhaps, if each one of us walked more humbly, more young men of color, women from all walks of life and all targeted minorities would be able to walk freely, without fear of sexual assault, violence or murder. And, more of God’s justice and mercy would be done.
