Men’s accessories and its Prorsum menswear range also sold well.Chief executive Angela Ahrendts (pictured) said that “ongoing initiatives in retail, digital, product development and new markets underpin our confidence in the future”.Burberry’s strong sales figures – following impressive results from Cartier owner Richemont Group – suggest the luxury goods market is profiting as the economy improves. Burberry recently bought out its trading partner to take closer control of operations in China as it pins its growth plan on emerging markets.Ahrendts also said she expects to open another 50 stores in China over the next five years.Analysts group Numis Securities increased its pre-tax profits forecast from £271m to £287m yesterday. Burberry chief financial officer Stacey Cartwright said: “It’s not just China – we’re seeing growth in the global luxury consumer generally. “We have a big year ahead and have pumped a lot of money back into the company through capital expenditure.” Tuesday 18 January 2011 7:38 pm whatsapp whatsapp Show Comments ▼ KCS-content last_img read more

Betsson launches DFS in Brazil with Scout Gaming

first_img Fantasy sports and betting supplier Scout Gaming has launched its fantasy sports product in Brazil with Betsson Group. The companies have worked together since 2017, when they formed an agreement under which Scout Gaming would deliver a DFS platform, with Betsson able to offer the complete solution across its subsidiaries and to all customers. DFS Results published last month showed that Betsson posted a net profit of almost SEK1bn (£86.8m/€98.9m/$119.6m) in 2020, following an increase in year-on-year revenue driven by a series of new acquisitions. “In order to provide the largest network of pooled DFS operators we must ensure that we partner with the biggest names in the business and we undoubtedly count Betsson Group among these must-have operators,” said Joakim Renman, chief commercial officer at Scout Gaming Group. Betsson’s Brazil-based customers will be given access to two types of daily fantasy sports game, free-to-play, and fixed buy-in, offering larger prize pools.

3 cheap dividend stocks I’d buy now

first_img The high-calibre small-cap stock flying under the City’s radar I’ve recently been looking for cheap dividend stocks to add to my portfolio. Here are three companies I would buy for my portfolio right now. Dividend stocks to buyThe first company I would buy is (LSE: MONY).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 group’s biggest challenge right now is the recently introduced regulation that insurance companies have to charge existing customers the same as new customers. This may reduce the need for customers to shop around, reducing the need for platforms like Moneysupermarket. This could have a significant impact on the group’s growth and income potential. Usually, high-growth internet stocks don’t offer much in the way of income. That’s not the case with Moneysupermarket. This online platform currently supports a yield of 4.4%.The company is highly cash generative, which means it can afford to return lots of money to shareholders while investing in its brand. Over the past five years, its dividend has grown at around 5% per annum.What’s more, the stock looks cheap. It is trading at a forward P/E ratio of 16.6, compared to the IT sector average of 28. That’s why I’d own the business as part of a portfolio of dividend stocks. Royalty incomeThe Hipgnosis Songs Fund (LSE: SONG) generates income from music royalties. The company’s goal is to produce a steady, predictable income stream for its shareholders that not influenced by economic trends. It is targeting a dividend of 5p per share in the long term. If it hits this target, the stock could yield 4.1%. Of course, there’s no guarantee the company will successfully meet this objective. One of the challenges the group faces is having to acquire enough music royalties. It isn’t the only enterprise chasing these assets. As a result, Hipgnosis has to pay higher and higher prices. This could impact shareholder returns if the business ends up overpaying consistently.Another threat to the group’s long-term potential is illegal downloads of music. If there’s an increase in illegal downloads, Hipgnosis will struggle to earn a return on its investments.Despite these risks, I think this is one of the best dividend stocks to buy. That’s why I would acquire the shares today. Investing for growth Premier Miton (LSE: PMI) is rapidly becoming one of the UK’s premier asset management businesses. The group has seen its net profit increase from just under £1m in 2016 to £11m in 2019. Analysts are expecting the firm to report a net income of £20m for 2021. It is trading at a forward P/E of 11.2 based on these figures, compared to the financial services sector median of 14.This growth has funded explosive dividend expansion. For the current financial year, analysts reckon the company can distribute 7.9p, which would give a dividend yield of 5.5%, based on the current share price. These are just forecasts at this stage and should be treated as such. However, I think they show the company’s potential. Asset management is all about achieving good results for clients. This is the biggest challenge the corporation faces. If it fails to achieve good results for clients, they could desert the business. This may cause profit margins to fall, and the company may have to cut its dividend as a result. Still, I would buy this company as part of a portfolio of dividend stocks.

The greatest scrum-halves of all time: Danie Craven

first_imgThe outbreak of World War Two meant his international career finished with the victory over the 1938 Lions, and on 16 caps, but after the conflict Craven’s power grew. He coached the Springboks to 17 wins from 23, helping the 1949 and 1951-52 teams etch their places in South African history, and became chairman of the South African Rugby Board in 1956. He held posts at the IRB and was instrumental in keeping his country in touch with the rest of the rugby world whilst they were in sporting isolation.Craven had secretly negotiated with the African National Congress in 1988 – a year before president FW de Klerk had started the dismantlement of apartheid which led to South Africa’s reintroduction to rugby in 1992 and its hosting of the 1995 World Cup. He died in 1993, aged 82, two years before he could see his greatest triumph. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Major team: Western ProvinceCountry: South AfricaTest span: 1931-38Test caps: 16 (16 starts)Test points: 6 (2T)Danie Craven was such a towering figure in South African rugby as a coach and administrator that his playing career is sometimes overlooked, yet he was probably the most influential scrum-half the Springboks had before Joost van der Westhuizen.A further common oversight is the fact Craven played in three international positions for the 1937 South African team, led by Flip Nel, that many still regard as the Boks’ finest. On the tour to Australasia, Craven played scrum-half, fly-half and in the back row as his side beat Australia 2-0 and the All Blacks 2-1. But it was a scrum-half that he’s best remembered, and it was in that role that he scored the winning try against Scotland in 1932, a match in which he was knocked unconscious. A PE teacher in Grahamstown at the time, Craven is credited with inventing the dive pass and, true or not – because ‘Lammetjie’ Luyt has his champions – Craven perfected it as a way of getting quick ball away to his half-back partner. The great Danie Craven Craven’s all-round status is emphasised by the fact that he is known as South Africa’s ‘Mr Rugby’. The scrum-half was one of the greats TAGS: The Greatest Players last_img read more

The municipality of Wilhermsdorf is located west of Nuremberg in immediate vicinity of the Nature Park Frankenhoehe. The plot is situated on the edge of a typical German family house settlement and impresses with its south-facing hillside.Save this picture!© Simone OttingerThe development plan provides here a single-storey building with gable roof. Client and architect have tapped the full potential of the rules and reinterpreted them in their favor. The result is a house that integrates well in the context despite of his individual appearance.Save this picture!SectionThe whole building stands on a base of garage and utility rooms. This pedestal bears the glassy ground floor, which is in fact rated as second basement. Above it hovers a black cuboid with a slightly inclined gabled roof.Save this picture!© Simone OttingerThe glassed floor is the main entrance of the house. Kitchen and dining area are aligned to the terrace from which you can overpeer the whole valley.

Tom takes his talent to a different stage

first_imgAdvertisement Facebook FORMER Limerick Fine Gael TD Tom Neville has firmly set his sights on Hollywood having agreed terms with leading acting agency Northern Gold PM.Neville from Croagh, West Limerick, who lost his Dail seat in last February’s General Election, joins his wife and Fair City star Jenny Dixon, on the agency’s books.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The UK-based firm represents actors across television, film and theatre, including legendary British soap ‘Coronation Street’ and BBC America’s top drama ‘Killing Eve’.“I’m absolutely delighted to sign with them. They work with a lot of the UK soaps, and also the likes of ‘Killing Eve’, ‘Doctors’ and ‘Casualty’, so it’s really really exciting. I’m really delighted to have the chance to work with these guys and see where it goes,” the 44 -year-old told the Limerick Post.The covid-19 lockdown, which arrived soon after the General Election, provided “time to take stock and submit my showreel to casting directors”.“I have been concentrating on my acting and getting my own consultancy business off the ground.”Neville’s acting skills came to the fore in 2015 when he received a nomination for Best Monologue at the Richard Harris International Film Festival for his performance as heroin addict Mark Renton, made famous by Ewan McGregor in cult hit movie ‘Trainspotting’.Before the Covid-19 pandemic, he was riding high on the back of his performance in ‘Everything Looks Better in the Sunshine’ which “got a great run at the Galway Film Fleadh”.While continuing to flatten the Covid curve, his acting star is once again on the rise.“I’m shooting an Irish movie in the middle of September. I’m playing a priest, which I’ve done before,” he explained.“There are a number of projects on the boil that Northern Gold are looking at for me, so I’m just looking forward to getting moving on them – I’m really looking forward to the next chapter on this, so we’ll see where it goes.”The former politician has “predominantly worked in film” but loves “the feedback from a live audience, and working on the edge”.“In theatre, you only get one chance and you’ve also got the atmosphere from the crowd, but obviously a lot of that has changed in the current environment, which is really difficult for theatre actors and theatres, and hopefully they will return sooner rather than later.”The atmosphere of the political stage was “slightly different, because the Dáil was real life, and a lot of people are effected by the decisions you make, so it’s a completely different dynamic”.Neville and Dixon celebrated their first wedding anniversary last July. Paying tribute to his wife, he said: “It’s great to have somebody else in your coroner who has been a rock for you, someone who has great advice and a great outlook, and someone who is very talented in the acting area as well.”“We work with each other in relation to that and I’m blessed to have that support, I’m lucky to have it.”The husband and wife acting duo role play when a script comes in the door.“We do. We rehearse for scripts, we help each other with rehearsals or analysing characters, or what the plots or subplots are, particularly around audition,” said Tom, who is son of retired former Fine Gael parliamentary party chairman Dan Neville.While presently concentrating on his acting as well as his consultancy business, he hasn’t ruled out a return to politics.“Politics is in my blood, it’ll always be there and there will always be a political grá within my genetic make up – how that will pan out over the next couple of years, I don’t know, but politics is so fluid and dynamic, and things change so quickly, and things arise.”“At the moment I’m playing the cards in front of me.” LifestyleEntertainmentFilmNewsLocal NewsTom takes his talent to a different stageBy David Raleigh – September 5, 2020 388 Linkedin Printcenter_img Twitter Email WhatsApp Previous articleLittle Mollie needs help to stop injuring herselfNext articleLucky Limerick winner scoops €50,000 with Prize Bonds David Raleighlast_img read more

High court puts off wall, asylum cases at Biden’s request

first_img FILE – Crews construct a section of border wall in San Bernardino National Wildlife Refuge, Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2020, in Douglas, Ariz. President Biden on Wednesday ordered a “pause” on all wall construction within a week, one of 17 executive edicts issued on his first day in office, including six dealing with immigration. The order leaves projects across the border unfinished and under contract after Trump worked feverishly last year to reach 450 miles, a goal he announced was achieved eight days before leaving office.
