William Hill US seals major league first

first_img Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The Vegas Golden Knights NHL ice hockey franchise has become the first team from the four established major leagues to secure a partnership with a sportsbook operator by sealing a “multi-year” deal with William Hill US.Under the agreement, William Hill and the team, which is preparing to start its second NHL season on October 4 after entering the league as an expansion franchise last year, will exploit cross-promotional opportunities across various platforms.William Hill’s brand will be advertised on the dasher board of the team’s T-Mobile Arena, as well as the videoboard above the rink during breaks in the play, starting with the Knights’ pre-season clash with the Colorado Avalanche this coming Monday. The two parties will also work together to host fan viewings for away games.Neither the length nor the financial value of the deal was disclosed.“This partnership between a major professional team and a sports book operator is a historic, landmark agreement, and we are delighted to be leading the way with William Hill in this space,” Knights president Kerry Bubolz said.William Hill US chief executive Joseph Asher said in June that the company had been “inundated” with approaches from major US sports teams about sponsorship deals since the US Supreme Court overturned the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in May.Last month, the NBA basketball league entered into a landmark partnership with MGM Resorts International, while earlier this month the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys franchise set a league first by linking up with WinStar World Casino.The NFL relaxed regulations on franchises signing commercial partnerships with casinos ahead of the start of the 2018-19 season two weeks ago, but the league still prohibits teams from promoting sportsbooks.In the NHL, New Jersey Devils president Hugh Weber told Bloomberg TV this week that the team expects to generate commercial revenues of up to $5m per year through gambling-related partnerships, taking advantage of the state’s expanding sports betting market, which generated wagers totalling $95.6m in August alone.“Being the only (NHL) team in New Jersey gives us a huge advantage,” he said. “We see sports betting as additive to the experience for our fans. There’s a lot on the horizon.”Image credit: Michael Miller Marketing & affiliates Vegas Golden Knights NHL team is first major league franchise to strike sportsbook deal Topics: Marketing & affiliates Sports bettingcenter_img Regions: US Nevada William Hill US seals major league first Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 19th September 2018 | By contenteditorlast_img read more

A dirt-cheap dividend stock to buy and retire early with!

first_img Image source: Getty Images. Revenue and profit history “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Buying undervalued dividend stocks is one of the most popular ways to build wealth. Here I’ll talk about one dirt-cheap utilities company,  SSE  (LSE:SSE), one of the largest companies specialising in electricity and gas.My colleague Kevin Godbold wrote an excellent article about this utilities company. He considers SSE to be a great investment opportunity. Generally speaking, I agree with his view but I’d look at the firm from another angle.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…What utilities company is it?First of all, the firm aims to become the leader in renewable energy. Therefore, being environmentally friendly is one of the company’s top priorities.Nevertheless, some analysts say that renewable energy has many drawbacks. One of them is higher costs. The consumer demand for alternative energy, on the other hand, is not very high. This is because gas and oil are really cheap now. Moreover, being eco-friendly is a popular topic and there is, arguably, too much hype about it.As a matter of fact, investing into necessary long-term energy generation projects requires a lot of capital expenditure. In the current situation, of the coronavirus pandemic and uncertainty about Saudi-Russian relations, renewables would face decreasing investment. However, many governments, charities and even investment funds strongly encourage sustainability. The UK aims to produce “net zero” emissions by 2050, reflected in the legislation. Undoubtedly, after the end of the crisis the government should invest more into renewable utilities.  SSE considers private households to be its potential customers. It also aims to produce electricity for public transportation. Many experts think that electric vehicles have a great future.Quite recently, SSE sold its energy services business to OVO Energy, one of the biggest electricity suppliers in the UK. It is part of SSE’s decarbonisation initiative. Indeed, it was a large benefit for the SSE’s balance sheet. Is it a dirt-cheap stock?I will find out if SSE is undervalued according to the following criteria: P/EP/BDividendyieldCurrentratioDebt-to-equityCredit ratingS&PCredit ratingMoody’s Dividend cover ratio0.691.041.14 Anna Sokolidou | Tuesday, 14th April, 2020 | More on: SSE Year201920182017 Revenue in £ millions26,316.827,250.429,037.9 Dividend per share (pence)97.594.791.3 Earnings per share* (pence)67.198.8104.3 I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. 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.

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. *Please note that adjusted earnings per share are taken as opposed to reported earnings per share.The balance sheet position of the utilities company needs improvement, since the current ratio barely allows SSE to pay its current debts. The debt-to-equity ratio is not ideal. However, it is common for many companies these days to have such a financial position. Moreover, S&P and Moody’s consider the company’s financial strength to be sound although not completely risk-free.The price-to-earnings ratio is not high, but if we were to take reported earnings per share, it would be lower. The dividend yield is excellent. Even though the dividend cover ratio suggests that the yield is not sustainable, management seems to be optimistic and even issued a dividend plan for several years. The fact that SSE keeps raising dividends in spite of falling earnings per share inspires some hope. I also like the fact that the total net profit increased between 2018 and 2019.  What next?The company is likely to successfully complete its restructuring process, and offers great dividends. Yet, I would not buy it just yet.  Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 18.632.227.8%1.0283.34BBB+ stableBaa1 stable 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.

James Horwill cleared after alleged stamp on Alun-Wyn Jones in first Test

first_imgSunday Jun 23, 2013 James Horwill cleared after alleged stamp on Alun-Wyn Jones in first Test The Wallabies appear to have dodged a bullet after captain James Horwill was cleared following an incident in the first Test loss to the British and Irish Lions on Saturday. He was cited after allegedly stamping Alun-Wyn Jones. [updated] The Wallabies are already in a bad place injury wise, and it looked as though Horwill, who had only just returned to Test rugby after a lengthy injury layoff, would be out of the rest of the series after having been cited for a stamp.Debutant centre Christian Leali’ifano left the field on a stretcher within the first minute of the game, and later both Berrick Barnes (jaw) and Pat McCabe (neck) suffered a similar fate, while Adam Ashley-Cooper appeared to have injured his shoulder. Horwill will be availble for the second Test however, as he has been cleared of stamping following a lengthy disciplinary hearing in Melbourne earlier today.Judicial officer Nigel Hampton QC found that on the balance of probabilities, the Horwill could not be found guilty of an intentional or deliberate action of stamping or trampling under law 10.4(b).“After hearing all the evidence I could not find that, when James Horwill’s right foot came into glancing contact with Alun-Wyn Jones’ face, that he was acting recklessly,” Hampton said.Horwill appeared to stamp on Alun-Wyn Jones in the third minute, with video evidence showing that his boot grazed the side of the lock’s face, who had to get stiches after the game.“I found that I could not reject as being implausible or improbable Horwill’s explanation that, as he was driving forward with his right leg raised, he was spun off balance through the impact of Lions players entering the ruck from the opposite side,” Hampton continued.“In an endeavour to regain his balance, Horwill brought his right leg to the ground unknowing that Alun-Wyn Jones’ head was in that area, due to having his sight impeded by the presence of Michael Hooper and Tom Croft who were beneath him and over the top of Alun-Wyn Jones.“Due to these reasons, I cannot uphold the citing.”The decision will no doubt anger Lions management, as well as fans, who may feel that there is a bit of history with host teams getting off lightly with incidents during Lions tours. “I played in the days of rucking and I’ve still got some scars from some good ruckings,” said Warren Gatland. “The head to me was sacrosanct… you stay away from that.” UPDATE 27-06-13 – The IRB will appeal the decisionHorwill is free to play pending the outcome, which means his selection for the second Test stands. If anything, he’ll likely miss the third and some of the Rugby Championship.View highlights from the first Test | Gatland talks about the incidentWarren Gatland on the James Horwill stamp on Alun-Wyn JonesTime: 0:25Credit: rugbymediaADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play , British & Irish Lions 2013 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.

Next week’s National Will Week to promote making a will

first_img Howard Lake | 25 July 2007 | News Chris Mole, MP for Ipswich, has backed the campaign, saying: “Making a will is something that millions of people put off because it is inconvenient or they do not understand the implications of dying without a Will. I learned a number of years ago of the problems that can be left to a partner if you die without making a will and chose to make mine. I am delighted that Sovereign, a business based in my constituency of Ipswich, are promoting the benefits of making a Will through National Will Week.” During National Will Week, Sovereign Will and Probate Services is offering couples booking an appointment one Will at no charge, and single people will receive a 50% discount on the price of their Will.Sovereign’s service involves a local Estate Planning Consultant visiting clients in their own home at a convenient time, to help them through the process of taking their instructions for their Wills. The client’s instructions are then sent to Sovereign where a leading firm of Solicitors prepares the documents and returns them to the client ready for signing and witnessing within 14 Tagged with: legacies Next week’s National Will Week to promote making a will AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img National Will Week is a week-long initiative, running from 29 July to 4 August, to promote the benefits of encouraging people to make their Wills.

Governance Code consultation ends with Charity Commission proposal to withdraw CC10 in response to overhaul

RFA Calls on AAA to Put Consumers First

first_img By Gary Truitt – Oct 28, 2013 Home Energy RFA Calls on AAA to Put Consumers First Facebook Twitter RFA Calls on AAA to Put Consumers First Facebook Twitter Previous articleUSDA says 59 Percent of Hoosier Corn is HarvestedNext articleHoosier Farmers Prepare for First FieldScripts Harvest Gary Truitt Triple-A has called for the Environmental Prteoction Agency to lower 2014 blending requirements – claiming higher level ethanol blends will hurt consumers. Renewable Fuels Association President and CEO Bob Dinneen criticized AAA – noting that E15 is the most tested fuel additive in EPA history. Further – Dinneen points out that the National Renewable Energy Laboratory recently reviewed over 40 studies on E15 – concluding no evidence of E25 damage on engines. According to Dinneen – AAA needs to stop being the puppet of Big Oil and put consumers first. He says the Energy Department and more than 40 studies say more than 60-percent of cars on the road today can safely use E15. In addition – Dinneen says more than 40-million miles have been driven on E15 without a single complaint. If Big Oil and AAA would stop obstructing consumer choice – Dinneen says American drivers could have access to a choice of higher level ethanol blends that are less expensive – yet higher in octane. Dinneen says there is nothing wrong with the Renewable Fuel Standard. In fact – he says it’s the single most effective energy policy the country has.
