Tags: NULL OCADO chiefs were yesterday upbeat about the company’s prospects and had seemingly justifiable reasons for optimism with an almost 30 per cent sales hike. But the figures cannot be looked at in isolation and come on the back of a torrid flotation which saw chief executive Tim Steiner and crew pitched against some analysts who claimed the stock was still overpriced. Indeed the way the share price has gone since the issue at a much reduced 180p would suggest that the sceptics were correct to rein in the company as it sought to bankroll expansion.The neigh sayers were again out in force yesterday helping the share price to close around 146p. Jonathan Pritchard at Oriel dismissed the stock saying: “No changes to forecasts and the fundamentals will reassert themselves. The fundamentals, from this valuation, look poor.” Meanwhile the company said it was “very focused on where it (the stock) will be trading in two or three years time, not where it will be trading at lunchtime”.However, what the stock is doing at lunchtime – and indeed next week – is being watched closely and the company cannot afford to appear aloof and dismissive if it is to build its reputation.Ocado is also facing a challenge from Morrisons which is expected to announce a foray into online retail. With the picture so mixed a “hold” as advised by Keith Bowman at Hargreaves Lansdown would appear to be the best option. whatsapp Tuesday 7 September 2010 10:59 pm Share whatsapp KCS-content Read This NextNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’Sportsnaut’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proof Ocado Show Comments ▼

Royston Wild | Tuesday, 7th April, 2020 | More on: HSV Tuesday has brought another welcome rise across global stock markets. The FTSE 100 is up by triple-digits as I type as infection rates slow and there are hopes that the world economy might not be hit as badly as first feared.It still pays to dig out top defensive shares to protect your portfolio though. Those with resilient profits that should be able to ride out the worst of the coronavirus crisis. A growth hero with such characteristics I’d be happy to buy today is Homeserve (LSE: HSV). And fresh financials released today illustrate why.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…Home comfortsProfits have been powering higher at the emergency callout specialist despite severe Covid-19-related lockdowns in many of its territories. Homeserve says that adjusted pre-tax profits are expected to have soared 12% during the fiscal year to March 2020, to £181m. This is also above analysts’ expectations.The FTSE 250 growth stock continues to operate resolutely despite the coronavirus crisis. It has resisted the temptation to either furlough or make redundant its employees, it said. Around 6,000 of its office-based workers are now operating from home, while its emergency repair teams continue to answer around 150 callouts every hour. A growth stock for uncertain timesThe safe-haven appeal of utilities stocks is no secret. It doesn’t matter how badly the economy is performing or whatever political chaos is raging. It also matters not whether other crises like public health disasters are developing. We all need running water to wash, electricity to boil the kettle and gas to put the heating on. And this keeps profits rising at these growth heroes. It’s what makes the likes of FTSE 100 giants National Grid and Severn Trent such brilliant buys for turbulent times like these, I feel.It’s clear, too that Homeserve can be added to the list. If your plumbing is blocked or leaking, your boiler is kaput, or your home’s wiring system shorts out, this company’s services remain in demand, whatever troubles are going on outside.A top buyThe essential nature of its services has helped keep annual earnings barrelling higher at Homeserve in recent times. But this is not the only story. Through a steady stream of acquisitions and partner agreements, customer numbers continue to boom, rising by 100,000 year-on-year to stand at 8.3m as of March. It is making huge waves in the gigantic North American marketplace in particular. Its client base here swelled to 4.4m from 4m over the same period.City analysts expect earnings at the growth stock to rise 8% in fiscal 2021, and by 15% the following year. And this creates expectations of more meaty dividend growth, resulting in yields of 2.2% and 2.5% for this year and next. It might be expensive on paper, sure. At current prices Homeserve commands a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 26.1 times. I consider this to be a fair price considering its exceptional defensive characteristics and ambitious growth plans, however.

The following excerpts are from a statement the North Carolina Environmental Justice Network prepared for its summit meeting in Whitakers, N.C., on Oct. 16-17, 2015. To read the entire statement, visit tinyurl.com/y34agngt/.Humans are responsible for the greenhouse gases that come from fossil fuels used in transportation, agriculture, industry and power generation, as well as carbon and methane from deforestation, livestock production and solid waste disposal. Underdeveloped communities exposed to racial and class exploitation will be more impacted by climate change than wealthy communities. This makes climate change an environmental justice issue. The injustice of disproportionate impact is magnified by the fact that people with fewer material resources are less responsible for producing greenhouse gases than wealthy people.The climate change movement is composed mostly of privileged people who didn’t object to fossil fuels as long as they were not directly impacted. They didn’t step in to protect people living next to refineries, pipelines and chemical plants; they didn’t fight for workers exposed daily to injuries, disabling dusts, carcinogens, and periodically to catastrophic and fatal accidents, refinery explosions, coal mine collapses. Now that fossil fuels threaten everybody, a segment of the privileged classes realizes that we have to do something. This movement is important; however, it will not succeed if it only involves people of privilege. Major change comes from the bottom up, more than from the top down. In the case of reducing greenhouse gases, change requires fundamental restructuring of the global economy and abandonment of production of fossil fuels that are currently counted as part of the assets of global energy companies.The North Carolina Environmental Justice Network was created to help communities experiencing injustice to transform power relationships and to support their self-determination. Our base communities face immediate threats of polluted homes, lack of basic amenities that the government provides to others, exploitative working conditions, lack of access to services and racist treatment in housing, education and policing. Although these communities will be disproportionately impacted by climate change over generations, we need to address the everyday concerns that people face right now. Slowing greenhouse emissions cannot occur without a mass movement, and it must be a movement that puts justice first. We are not fighting for a new order that reduces greenhouse emissions but leaves other injustices in place. Crimes of the corporate-government alliance extend far beyond greenhouse emissions and climate change. Climate change is a symptom of global capitalism, just like fever is a symptom of infection. Treating climate change as the fundamental issue is like practicing medicine in the era before germs were identified as the causes of infection. Because fossil fuel is the lifeblood of the global economy, the climate justice movement must engage with the infection — capitalism — and not just the fever, climate change. Treating the symptoms will not prevent disaster. To treat the infection we have to build a movement that is inclusive, which requires putting racial and economic justice and self-determination first. Our job is to bring this environmental justice perspective to our allies and the communities we serve.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Home / Daily Dose / They Don’t Spend Like They Used to Share Save A recent report published by Bankrate suggests that younger millennials aged 18 to 26 spend more on daily, habitual expenses, such as eating out, coffee, and alcohol, than any other generation, which can limit their long-term ability to save for a downpayment on their mortgage. According to the data, 54 percent of the people in their age group say they have a meal away from home at least three times per week, compared to the 33 percent of Gen-Xers. Thirty percent say they buy coffee at least three times a week. Fifty-one percent of younger millennials aged 21 to 26 (for legal reasons) said they go a bar at least once a week.Millennials also have another problem that previous generations didn’t face: soaring student debt. Cumulative student loan debt has reached $1.3 trillion dollars in the U.S., and college tuition continues to rise each year. Coupled with a trip to the neighborhood watering hole, a week’s worth of morning coffee, and lunch out on the town, where will millennials find the time—and the money—to save for a downpayment? One option, aside from completely cutting off vice spending and tightening the belt, is the rise in popularity of low-down payment mortgages, which are now offered by major banks such as, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and Fifth-Third. Veterans and active-duty service members can get a private loan guaranteed by the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Navy Federal Credit Union offers a zero-down mortgage option. Millennials that aren’t in the military but have impeccable credit can qualify for low down payment mortgages with mortgage insurance, either through a private firm or through the FHA. The Chicago Tribune has reported that nearly 35 percent of millennials that opted to go the route of homeownership did so using FHA mortgages, which is 14 percent higher than the overall market share, which sits at 21 percent.
