El-Mokadem’s four-year turnaround of Compass, as well as stints at Centrica companies British Gas and OneTel, have earned him a reputation for successfully growing and overhauling service sector UK firms. At Exova, which tests materials and products for companies such as Rolls-Royce and GE, he sees himself as a catalyst for growth, he told City A.M. “This move makes perfect sense as it’s another service business, this time very clearly growth. The challenge is to continue its growth story,” he said. “I think the emphasis is going to be on organic growth.”El-Mokadem was credited with restoring trust in Compass, which he joined in 2005 after three profit warnings, a scandal over its contract to supply UN peacekeepers, and the ousting of chief executive Mike Bailey. At Centrica he was British Gas’ head of marketing before being tasked with growing its telecoms operator OneTel from startup in 2000. He made it the UK’s largest fixed-line provider, and sold it to Carphone Warehouse in 2005.Exova was bought out from materials testing firm Bodycote by Clayton Dubilier & Rice in 2008. Life in a private firm will be different from a plc but the same standards apply, he said. “This job is about running the business in the right interests of customers and shareholders. Whether it’s Compass, Centrica or Exova, the mindset the leadership team needs to have is very similar.” Tags: NULLlast_img read more

These FTSE 100 stocks slumped badly in 2019. Here’s what I’d do now

Alan Oscroft has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended NMC Health. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Pearson. 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. Alan Oscroft | Tuesday, 31st December, 2019 | More on: CNA PSON See all posts by Alan Oscroft The FTSE 100 has certainly been through a year of contrasts, with some impressively high flyers soaring in 2019, but there were some depressing falls too.EnergyOn the final day, it’s a one-on-one clash between NMC Health (which wasn’t even in the running until December’s big crash) and Centrica (LSE: CNA), both down around 34% at the time of writing.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…Centrica’s fall has been longer in the making, with the shares down 66% over five years as the British Gas owner suffered multiple blows including falling customer numbers, the energy price cap, and pressure on its upstream exploration and production business.According to forecasts, this year will see earnings per share having dropped by 60% since 2014, and earlier in 2019 the company slashed its dividend from 2018’s 12p per share to 5p — but that would still yield 5.5%. Analysts are finally forecasting a return to an earnings rise in 2020, which would drop the P/E to approximately 10.I’m wary of recovery stocks, but is Centrica on the turnaround? I think there are signs it is. For one thing, the share price has actually been recovering in recent months and is up 40% since August’s lowest point — helped by the Conservative Party’s election victory that put paid to Jeremy Corbyn’s nationalisation plans.I could be tempted, but the company is still in the restructuring phase of its recovery plan and is disposing of non-core assets. And the real measure of success won’t be seen until the new slimmer company starts showing repeatable earnings growth. I think I’ll wait a while and at least see how things go in 2020.PublishingShares in Pearson (LSE: PSON) have fallen almost as much as Centrica’s in 2019 with a drop of 31%, and their five-year loss of 45% looks almost desirable compared to the energy firm’s slump.The publisher has suffered from a fall in demand for its traditional products, and it’s been working on remaking itself as an online educator. But it’s been slow progress, and the pending departure of the CEO doesn’t look like a particularly good omen to me.But Pearson is selling its remaining stake in Penguin Random House for £530m (after some other big disposals), and that amount of cash will give it some breathing room. It will also leave a surplus to the tune of £350m, which the company will use for a share buyback.A buyback suggests the board sees the shares as undervalued now, so that might inject a bit of confidence. But I’m really not sure I agree. On a forward P/E of 11.5 for 2019, rising to 12 on 2020 forecasts, the shares don’t look an obviously cheap buy to me.It probably adds a bit of support for the dividend, currently set to yield 3.1%, but if the shares keep on falling into 2020, then the buyback might turn out to be badly timed.I also fear the online focus will hit some heavy competition, which should mean tighter margins, and I’m not seeing where the competitive advantage lies.While I think 2020 could see a continued upswing for Centrica shares, I’m not optimistic for the Pearson price.

Even though some investors who were early to Bitcoin made fortunes by buying and owning the crypto. Indeed, there are people around today claiming that Bitcoin made them millionaires.And it’s easy to see how that happened when, just 10 years ago, a Bitcoin was near $1. Today, it’s close to $20,000. Meanwhile, the price of gold has also been strong since finding a low near the beginning of the century.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…Why I’d shun Bitcoin and gold for UK sharesGold has a reputation for providing investors with a safe haven in troubled economic times. And some argue Bitcoin could be behaving like a gold standard to cryptocurrencies. But whatever the truth about that, much of what drives the price of Bitcoin and gold is pure speculation.And in their elevated positions, both Bitcoin and gold have a lot of clear blue sky beneath them. It doesn’t take a big stretch to imagine economic times becoming less troubled. And if that happens, we could see Bitcoin and gold losing their updrafts and floating back down again.For example, an end to the Brexit saga is in sight. And it’s a similar story with the coronavirus pandemic. If the economic news flow from the real world gains positive traction, shares could blossom while alternative assets such as Bitcoin and gold wilt.But even in the worst of economic times, I’m inclined to invest in shares and share-backed vehicles such as funds and trackers. For me, equities are a superior asset class. I think of them as active assets because the underlying businesses can build value while I hold shares. And there’s no such advantage from holding Bitcoin and gold because they are inactive, inert assets.I’d target quality businessesUnderlying operational progress in a business can push a share price higher. And that makes sense because the valuation has to accommodate rising profits, cash balances and other internal assets owned by the business. But that kind of value-driving engine is missing from Bitcoin and gold.So, I’d invest in UK shares backed by strong, high-quality businesses. And I tend to find those at the defensive end of the defensive/cyclical continuum. To me, those businesses with cyclical operations don’t often make good long-term investments. I’d describe them as poor-quality enterprises. So, I’m wary of stocks in sectors such as banking, oil production & exploration, mining, retail, hospitality, travel and others.However, I’m keen on sectors such as utilities, energy supply, fast-moving-consumer goods, food supply, healthcare and others. And, right now, I’d aim to own shares such as AG Barr, Britvic, Computacenter, Cranswick, National Grid, Nichols and PZ Cussons. I’d buy each share and hold it for decades while reinvesting dividends to compound my long-term gains. Bitcoin and gold could drop like a stone in 2021.

Harshil Patel | Wednesday, 16th June, 2021 | More on: DFS FUTR SCS Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares UK shares are performing well so far this year. The FTSE 100 is up by 13% year-to-date and a pleasing 18% over the past year. UK shares are still relatively cheap versus other global markets, but I think their upward momentum could continue.So, I’m looking at shares that have recently reported business strength. When a company reports trading that’s better than management expectations, it can understandably result in a rising share price. Not just for the day, but for months or even years.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…Future stock market returnsOne example is Future (LSE: FUTR), a global platform for specialist media. In May, it reported record first-half revenue and profit, materially ahead of market expectations. Its share price responded positively on the day and has risen even higher since then.I reckon these hot UK shares have further momentum that could drive the share price higher over the summer. Management also expects full-year results to be “materially ahead” of market expectations.Future has two main divisions — media and magazines. The performance was driven by digital advertising and e-commerce growth in the media division. It also reported record user engagement with online user growth of 31% year-on-year.A word of warning, however. The company remains cautious about the wider macroeconomic outlook associated with Covid-19.  Also, changing user habits could affect Future’s advertising revenues. With an increasing use of mobile devices, Future will need to ensure its advertising offering stays relevant.That said, these UK shares are still cheap in my opinion. Offering growing earnings, reasonable profit margins and a glowing outlook, I’m tempted to add some to my Stocks and Shares ISA.So far so goodDFS Furniture (LSE:DFS) recently reported a strong trading performance. Total orders were up a staggering 92% in Q4 vs the same period in 2019.This performance was driven by customers who’d been waiting for showrooms to open post-lockdown. In addition, it looks like people have increased their spending on home items in the past year. A combination of higher savings and spending more time at home seem to have sparked the desire for a new sofa.It’s worth pointing out that more recent revenue growth could be affected by sector-wide shipping delays, Covid-19 disruption of factory production and higher raw material costs.Overall, the business is still set for growth. Its share price is up by 69% over the past year, but I still think there’s room for further gains.UK shares to sit and hold ontoI think the trends that DFS is seeing bode well for SCS (LSE:SCS) too. In fact, I’m tempted to buy both. SCS has a stronger balance sheet with plenty of cash. It also reported strong performance in its last interim results. That was several months ago in March, so I reckon it’s likely due another update soon.Some of the best UK shares to invest in are those of smaller companies, in my opinion. With a market capitalisation of £115m, I’d say SCS falls firmly in this group.The downsides that SCS is facing are likely to be similar to DFS, namely higher material costs and shipping delays. That said, I see SCS as a well-managed company and it’s well-funded too. At a price-to-earnings ratio of 13x its shares are relatively cheap, in my opinion. In conclusion, I’d consider buying all three shares this summer.  Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.center_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Video – Archbishop of Canterbury’s New Year Message

first_imgVideo – Archbishop of Canterbury’s New Year Message Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK [Episcopal News Service] In his 2016 New Year message, Archbishop Justin Welby says Jesus’s example shows us why we must love and welcome refugees and strangers.Read the transcript of the message: Marsh Academy is a school in my own diocese of Canterbury. Today, I’ve been meeting and chatting to some of the students – an experience I found very uplifting.I had the honour to meet, privately, an inspiring boy, who at just 14 fled his homeland in North Africa after soldiers stormed his school and attempted to abduct him. He was saved by a courageous teacher but was so terrified that it would happen again he decided to escape. This is just one example of the many desperate journeys children are making on their own to save their lives.This school represents the best of what we can do in this country. It welcomes, it loves, it serves, it teaches and equips people and demonstrates our ability to live up to our long established tradition of warmth and hospitality.It’s not a rich school; many families in the area are struggling on a day-to-day basis. And yet this school and surrounding community are astonishingly generous. If they can do it so can we all.Visiting here brings to mind a chapel in Canterbury Cathedral that was set aside in the sixteenth century for refugees fleeing persecution in France.An inscription outside the chapel calls it a “testimony alike to the large and liberal spirit of the English church, and the glorious asylum which England has in all times given to foreigners flying for refuge against oppression and tyranny.”Jesus was a refugee – fleeing as a baby with his parents, returning years later to a strange new ‘home’. He tells us to be those who welcome the alien and stranger, the poor and weak. As a nation we have always done so. In today’s world hospitality and love are our most formidable weapons against hatred and extremism.I have met some extraordinary people today, from this area and those who have risked their lives to find safety. The hospitality of people here brings love, hope and joy. If we imitate them society becomes a far better place. I wish you all a happy New Year filled with hope.

Photo : Michael Pipkin/Facebook[Episcopal News Service] Les aumôniers épiscopaux et interconfessionnels étaient sur le point de monter une tente dans le camp d’Oceti Sakowin, le 4 décembre lorsqu’un messager s’est approché et les a invités à rejoindre la foule déjà réunie autour du feu sacré au centre du camp. Ils ont laissé la tente, les poteaux plantés dans la terre et y sont allés.Alors qu’ils rejoignaient des centaines de personnes rassemblées autour du feu, Dave Archambault II, président de la tribu Sioux de Standing Rock, a pris le micro pour annoncer que le gouvernement fédéral avait déclaré qu’il n’autoriserait pas le passage de l’oléoduc de Dakota Access sous le fleuve Missouri au lac Oahe, à travers la source d’eau potable pour environ 8 000 personnes vivant dans la réserve de Standing Rock, qui couvre près d’un million d’hectares dans le Dakota du Nord et le Dakota du Sud.« C’est très important pour tous les gens qui nous ont soutenus, qui se sont montrés solidaires avec nous », a déclaré Dave Archambault. « C’est énorme. C’est géant ».Il a invité les personnes présentes à remporter chez elles les enseignements du mouvement « l’eau c’est la vie », pour guérir leurs familles et leurs communautés et créer un meilleur avenir.« L’heure est venue pour nous maintenant d’aller de l’avant et de ne pas oublier. Je vous suis tellement reconnaissant à tous », a déclaré Dave Archambault.La foule, dont un grand nombre campe depuis des mois pour s’opposer au projet controversé d’oléoduc, a réagi par un tonnerre d’applaudissements, en versant des larmes et a manifesté sa joie en s’étreignant.Des milliers de personnes, dont des Amérindiens et des autochtones représentant environ 300 tribus venues du monde entier, sont arrivées au Dakota du Nord ces derniers mois dans une manifestation sans précédent de solidarité avec la Nation sioux de Standing Rock.« Au nom de l’Église épiscopale, j’exprime ma gratitude au Président Barack Obama et à son administration pour leur défense des droits des peuples autochtones des États-Unis. Nous applaudissons la décision prise par l’Army Corps of Engineers des États-Unis de refuser le permis de passage de l’oléoduc sous le lac Oahe », a déclaré l’Évêque Primat Michael Curry, qui s’est rendu à Standing Rock en septembre. « Je tiens à remercier personnellement tous ceux qui ont œuvré pour faire entendre les voix du peuple de Standing Rock, en attirant notre attention sur des erreurs historiques et des injustices, et en nous exhortant tous à envisager une nouvelle vision de la façon dont nous pourrions aimer Dieu, nous aimer les uns les autres et aimer la création.« Je dois reconnaissance et humilité aux protecteurs de l’eau de Standing Rock dont le témoignage fidèle sert d’exemple de courage moral, d’intégrité spirituelle et de réel souci pour la famille humaine tout entière et la création de Dieu. J’apprécie aussi grandement le sacrifice et l’exemple des anciens combattants, du clergé interconfessionnel et des aumôniers spécialisés en traumatismes qui ont accompagné les protecteurs de l’eau lors des moments critiques de la lutte ».La décision du 4 décembre est arrivée alors que d’anciens combattants des États-Unis débarquaient dans le camp pour former un bouclier entre les protecteurs de l’eau non violents et les forces de police devenues chaque fois plus violentes et militarisées dans les affrontements. À un certain moment, il semblait que les protecteurs allaient être forcés d’évacuer le camp d’Oceti Sakowin, situé sur les terres fédérales juste au sud du fleuve Cannonball sur la route 1806.« Sans voix… complètement bouleversé, j’ai toujours attendu ce jour avec espoir » confie, à la suite de l’annonce, le révérend John Floberg, prêtre qui supervise les églises épiscopales de la partie de la réserve de Standing Rock située dans le Dakota du Nord et qui a été à la tête du soutien que l’Église épiscopale a apporté aux protecteurs. Des larmes coulaient sur ses joues alors qu’il exprimait sa gratitude « à tous ceux qui ont répondu à l’appel et manifesté la solidarité de l’église avec Standing Rock. C’est un moment de Kairos et nous nous trouvons au beau milieu ».« Je tiens à remercier tous ceux de toutes traditions religieuses qui sont venus nous soutenir…. C’est le point de rencontre de la tradition catholique romaine à la tradition wiccane en passant par la tradition orthodoxe, c’est le point de rencontre de nos traditions religieuses, nous sommes parvenus à un nouveau point ».L’Église épiscopale a soutenu les protecteurs de l’eau et leurs alliés depuis le mois d’août lorsque l’opposition à l’oléoduc de Dakota Access a véritablement commencé. « Et ce soutien va continuer » a ajouté John Floberg.L’Église continuera à apporter soutien, réconfort et accompagnement pastoral aux gens sur place et John Floberg encourage les épiscopaliens à continuer à venir à Standing Rock pour montrer leur solidarité.

Midweek Madness – Tom Varndell sneaks in for a great try

first_imgWednesday Sep 17, 2008 Midweek Madness – Tom Varndell sneaks in for a great try When the Leicester Tigers hosted London Irish in front of a capacity crowd in November of 2006, there was one man who left the field with his head held high after scoring two special tries, and another who was looking for the nearest ditch to bury his in. The Tigers came out tops 26-18, mainly due to a great kicking display from Ian Humphreys, but more importantly, two tries from speedster Tom Varndell, the second of which came from a moment of extreme opportunism. A huge clearing kick from Humpreys sailed downfield, travelling the length of the pitch before appearing as if it would run over the dead ball line. Michael Horak, former Leicester and England full back, delayed touching the ball down as he seemingly presumed it would go dead, and had not been alerted of the impending threat posed by the rapidly advancing Varndell. The England winger sprinted over 90m and came out of nowhere to beat the oblivious Horak to the ball, thus scoring a truly remarkable try. This defensive howler was just as much down to poor judgement, communication, and awareness, as it was to Varndells tremendous speed and determined chase. Its very similar to two other tries weve seen over the years, one being the famous Rob Howley incident of 2004, and the other from January this year with another flyer, Richard Haughton . Great to watch, but never nice if it happens to you. :: Related Posts :: Tom Varndell late winning try for Leicester gets them into the Semis Bizarre Richard Haughton Try vs Glasgow Rob Howley’s miraculous try to win the Heineken Cup 2004 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries , See it to Believe it Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
