Diageo (LSE: DGE) has been one of the best performing investments in the FTSE 100 this year as the Diageo share price has risen strongly. Year-to-date, the stock has produced a total return of nearly 19%. Moreover, in the past 12 months, it has returned 22%, including dividends. Shares in the drinks giant fell around a third in the first quarter of 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic spread around the world.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…However, since then, the stock has experienced a steady recovery as the fallout has not been as bad as initially expected.In fact, sales and profits have recovered so quickly that Diageo said it would resume plans to return £4.5bn to shareholders earlier in the month. It suspended this plan in April last year after returning just £1.3bn through buybacks. Diageo share price outlookIt seems the market is hoping Diageo’s recovery will continue. I think the chances are it will.While it’s still early days, initial sales figures from the hospitality industry in the UK show that consumers have been happy to splash the cash as they’ve returned to bars and restaurants. And this trend is echoed around the world. Diageo’s North American sales grew 12% in the first quarter. The reopening of the US economy powered growth. But the Diageo share price is far more than a reopening investment. The owner of alcoholic beverage brands such as Guinness and Johnnie Walker is also a play on emerging markets growth.It owns 50% of India’s largest spirits business and has a foothold in the Chinese market. The growing middle class in these regions could lead to increased demand for Diageo’s higher-value brands. I believe this potential is the main reason why the stock has performed so well over the past few months. As the global economy starts to move on from the pandemic, Diageo’s global footprint and premium brands may register strong growth.Risks and challengesDespite the above strengths and opportunities, Diageo does have its risks. For one, borrowing is a little on the high side.Net debt was equivalent to 3.4 times cash profits at the end of December 2020. This level of borrowing appears sustainable, but it could be a considerable risk for the enterprise if interest rates rise significantly. The company may have to reduce shareholder returns to free up capital to pay down debt.At the same time, higher commodity costs could hurt profit margins. This may once again lead to lower shareholder returns. Still, despite these risks, I’m pretty content to own Diageo and would buy more of the stock for my portfolio today. I think the company’s portfolio of billion-dollar brands gives it a substantial competitive advantage. Further, its position in emerging markets should enable the group to profit from these regions’ economic growth.Overall, I reckon the trends that have pushed the Diageo share price higher over the past year may continue.  Rupert Hargreaves | Tuesday, 25th May, 2021 | More on: DGE Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free.

Amazon.co.uk adds second-hand goods sales to its site

Amazon.co.uk adds second-hand goods sales to its site AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 21 March 2002 | News Amazon.co.uk’s new second-hand good service could offer charities another channel for selling their donated goods.Visitors to Amazon.com’s UK and German sites can now buy and sell second-hand goods via the site. Users can sell new and used items on the same pages that Amazon sells its own inventory. Visitors can choose whether to buy from Amazon or from an individual seller.With many charities using online auctions to sell donated goods and collectable items, this new service is worth testing to see if it too can convert donated goods into cash. For example, it could prove particularly attractive for charities with books that are currently unavailable from the Amazon site, or which would take a long time to order. Some clever selection and positioning of items by charities could yield better and faster income than selling the items in a shop.

It has proudly published at no charge to its readership, yet made a profit within months of its launch. Indeed, that model is holding up well as we enter our 12th year: indeed, turnover this financial year is expected to double.The past year has seen the site’s team of contributors grow, new services launch and the first of our ventures into offline activities, namely our Perfect Pitch events.Indeed, in keeping with our tradition of giving away birthday presents on our birthday, we managed that a day early this year with yesterday’s Perfect Pitch – Gift Aid event in London. Over 100 delegates were treated, at no charge, to the latest practical information on how to make the most out of Gift Aid: organisations which presented included HM Revenue and Customs, Bmycharity, Blackbaud, CAF and GAIN. And at the end we treated them to free wine at a reception. Feedback at the event and that received subsequently suggests its content proved very useful to many of the delegates.This past year has seen our network of associates grow. We now have a dedicated writer on fundraising in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, a news reporter, a team of three people adding commercial advertising to the site, a team of two advertising sales staff, our two web development experts, and now two financial staff. Needless to say, most are not full-time, but then from our earliest days we’ve striven to run a lean organisation and exploit the benefits of a virtual organisation.On top of that, during the year we have received enquiries from the UK and overseas about buying the site which demonstrates, in our mind, that others can see the value in the site, and perhaps have ideas of improving it further.So, plenty for UK Fundraising to feel satisfied with as we look back, but the site would not succeed without the extensive, warm, and insightful support and contributions it receives from its readership and the wider fundraising community. We receive excellent industry news tips and intelligence from all kinds of people, and our discussion forum remains the most active by far in the fundraising sector in the UK.So, thank you to all our readers and contributors for making and keeping UK Fundraising the successful resource and business that it is. If you think it needs to improve, tell us and we’ll see if we can act on your suggestions in the coming year. About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Lending a hand: how TCU resident assistants helped serve food during February’s winter storm

(Photo courtesy of Swati Bharathi) Maizey Edgarhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/maizey-edgar/ printThe freezing temperatures and icy roads that brought much of Texas to halt in February triggered an emergency protocol for TCU Dining Services as the university scrambled to keep students fed.For four days – the longest emergency stretch in a decade – resident assistants (RAs) and hall directors pitched in to help dining staff. Although TCU provided hotel rooms so the dining hall staff wouldn’t have to risk driving to and from their homes during severe weather conditions, there weren’t enough people on hand and the protocols were enacted.RAs wiped down tables and provided a sense of community building for their residents, using a rotation created by hall directors for each mealtime, according to Director of Housing and Residence Life (HRL) Craig Allen. Some residential staff even served food when staff numbers were at their lowest.  Read More: TCU extends use of campus recreation center as shelter for studentsThe prolonged storm, which left many off-campus students without power for multiple days, added to the strain.  “[We] served more meals in those first few days than we serve on an average day any day of the semester, and we did it during a shorter time period because everyone just came at once,” Allen said.Not an everyday occurrenceThe last time TCU Dining Services utilized the protocol was in February 2015.Allen said many hall directors and RAs were unaware they would be asked to step up.Resident Assistant team assisting dining hall staff. (Photo courtesy of Swati Bharathi)“I was personally not aware of the emergency protocol until about a week before we were forecasted to experience severe winter weather,” said Emily Morales, junior mechanical engineering major and an RA in King Hall.Allen said that moving forward, HRL will be sure to mention the protocols and make sure that residence staff know that it is a possibility. Some RAs said working in Market Square and King Family Commons was an opportunity to help develop their sense of community during the storm.Junior nursing major Zea Maroon, who is an RA in Clark Hall, said she developed an appreciation for the hard work carried out daily by dining staff, and she had time to interact with residents more than she usually would. Allen said the RAs and hall directors won the appreciation of students. He also said a group of students brought in a bag of thank you notes to give to dining staff on Feb. 19, and that the graciousness of students and staff really “boosted morale” and allowed for the functioning of the dining halls under such unprecedented conditions.
