Ocado hit by boss share sale

first_img Share OCADO shares took a tumble yesterday after chief executive Tim Steiner sold £5m worth of Ocado stock. Steiner’s move – plus the announcement that Waitrose was planning to revamp its own online delivery service – saw the stock close down 7.75 per cent at 239p.Waitrose, which has a ten-year contract with Ocado to supply the online retailer with goods, said it would be targeting customers inside the M25; Ocado’s home turf.The John Lewis pension fund last week sold its stake in Ocado, also adding to the company’s woes. Meanwhile, a potentially lucrative tie-up with Morrisons to deliver its groceries seems to be off the agenda. Ocado’s float last year saw the price slashed before going to market but since early wobbles the shares had gone from strength to strength. Steiner sold two million shares at 254p, something he always intended to do post float, according to the company.Ocado sceptic Clive Black at Shore Capital said: “We continue to believe that many folk believe Ocado is a division of Waitrose and when the light bulb comes on that a), it is not, that b), it is a competitor and that Waitrose is providing online direct, then our aforementioned fears about competition may come to the fore.”However, an Ocado adviser said: “There is room for everyone in the market”, adding that the Waitrose move was not a worry.

The Shell share price rallied 10% last week. Here’s what I’d do right now

Image source: Getty Images. The Shell share price rallied 10% last week. Here’s what I’d do right now Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Jonathan Smith | Monday, 30th November, 2020 | More on: RDSB There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’! Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today…center_img The Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) share price was one of the best performing FTSE 100 stocks last week. If we extend the time period to look at the past month, it’s up almost 50%. It’s true that the FTSE 100 has enjoyed a strong performance as a whole, but the Shell share price is still outperforming its Footsie peers. What’s been going on here?Why have Shell shares rallied?One of the reasons the Shell share price has performed well in the short term is the oil price. Crude oil was trading around $35 at the beginning of the month. Now it’s trading above $45. Historically, there’s been a strong correlation between the Shell share price and oil. After all, the business is what we call “vertically integrated” with oil. This means it’s active in all stages of the process. From exploration projects in oil fields, to refining it and then selling it in different forms.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…Therefore, it’s logical that the share price is heavily impacted by the oil price. On top of this, there’s been another external factor benefiting the company. The positive news last week, and in preceding weeks, about several different vaccines proving effective is a huge boost for Shell.If we rewind to Q2 results, oil products sales volumes were down 39%. This was mostly due to the aviation and retail sectors, as the pandemic meant consumers were staying at home. Demand for oil products simply wasn’t there. Now, if we flip to the prospect of a viable vaccine, flight demand should increase. I wrote a piece recently on how this could benefit the easyJet share price. Indirectly, demand for the refined products Shell offers will increase. This should have a knock on impact via a higher share price.What would I do now?The Shell share price still sits at a large discount compared to its level in January 2020. At 1,340p, the January level of 2,200p seen a long way away. So as a long-term buyer, Shell is definitely on my watchlist.But would I buy today? Perhaps not. In the short term, the reasons causing the rally aren’t really Shell-specific. The oil price and vaccine news benefit lots of other businesses as well. The rally hasn’t come from Shell doing something amazing. This makes me cautious of investing right now, and so I’m going to sit on the sidelines for the next few weeks. More in-depth Q4 results should be due in January. This, along with guidance for 2021, should give me a clearer picture on whether Shell should be my oil major of choice, instead of BP or other oil-related stocks. A big driver for me would also be any news about reinstating the full dividend that was cut earlier this year. I remember when I used to own Shell stock, I picked up a dividend yield of 5%-7%. A very generous yield returning would likely further boost the Shell share price as income investors buy the stock.

Bill Clinton rallies support for wife Hillary at Tarrant County College

first_imgTo increase national and government unity, Bill Clinton said politicians need to focus on the coming generations.Bill Clinton said that “student loans are the only loan that cannot be refinanced.”  Hillary Clinton’s political platform would reform the way student loans are paid off.The proposed reform has the option to refinance student loans and remove a portion of the debt with a year of public service work, like teaching, or remove the debt entirely with two years of public service work.The former president used recent events, such as race-related police shootings, to support his wife’s platform.“We need more police…who look like the people they’re patrolling,” Bill Clinton said.He also put an importance on the need for community groups to review crime with police to find the truth.Bill Clinton used the case of water pollution in Flint, Michigan to support the creation of jobs in the United States.“We have not kept up with infrastructure demands,” he said. “Let’s keep jobs in the U.S. and clean out the pipes.”Bill Clinton also said his wife’s goal is to have every household in the country powered by clean energy, a feat that “would create thousands of jobs” for the unemployed.Hillary Clinton is a bright spot according to some in the presidential race for reasons other than her platform.Yvette Branch, a Hillary Clinton supporter, said she is more enthusiastic about this election than past elections because of her daughter.Izzy Carol (left) hopes to run for president in the election of 2040.“As a parent of a girl, I think it’s very important to have good role models she can aspire to be like,” said Branch.Hillary Clinton would be the first female president in U.S. history if she wins the democratic candidacy and beats the Republican candidate in the 2016 presidential election. Previous articleJimmy Tatro talks ambitions of a college dropoutNext articleRetiring vice chancellor started at the bottom Kat Matthews RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin print president Bill Clinton came out to the Trinity River campus of Tarrant County College Monday morning to rally support for his wife Hillary and increase voter turnout in the March 1 Super Tuesday election. Some supporters brought their children to listen to Bill Clinton at his TCC rally.“If we’re gonna win this fight, we have got to have all hands on board,” the former president said.  “And I don’t think there’s any question who can best do that.”Bill Clinton named seven aspects that make up Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s political platform.  They focus mostly on reforms, unity promotion, and continuing improvements in healthcare small business support.The former president spent much of his speech highlighting the need for unity and the importance of inclusiveness.Clinton supporter has followed Hillary rallies across Texas.

Call for suspect in Kieffer disappearance to be flown to France for questioning

first_img Côte d’IvoireAfrica March 10, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for suspect in Kieffer disappearance to be flown to France for questioning RSF_en Reporters Without Borders today urged the Ivorian authorities to cooperate with a French investigating judge’s request for Ivorian citizen Michel Legré, the leading suspect in the disappearance of French-Canadian journalist Guy-André Kieffer in April 2004 in Abidjan, to be transferred to France for two months for questioning. The organization also called on the French foreign ministry to support the judge’s initiative instead of obstructing it.

Noting that events beyond Ramaël’s control held up his work and forced him to delay his trip to Abidjan, the organization added: “It would be incomprehensible if the French foreign ministry did not now demonstrate anew its commitment to solve this case.”Ramaël and fellow investigating judge Emmanuelle Ducos were not able to interrogate Legré satisfactorily during their stay in Abidjan. Legré’s lawyers were clearly obstructive, telling their client not to answer essential questions and preventing him from talking freely.The brother-in-law of President Laurent Gbagbo’s wife, Legré was the last person to see Kieffer before he went missing. Ramaël charged him on 11 October with “abducting and holding” Kieffer. He is currently being held in an Abidjan detention centre.Kieffer, 54, married and father of two children, was last seen around 1 p.m. on 16 April 2004 in an Abidjan shopping centre. He specialised in commodities and business, working for the French business daily La Tribune from 1984 to early 2002, when he moved to Abidjan and freelanced for La Lettre du Continent and several Ivorian newspapers. to go further The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Threats against journalists in run-up to Côte d’Ivoire’s presidential election News RSF’s recommendations for protecting press freedom during Côte d’Ivoire’s elections Reports News Organisation October 16, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

RSF worried by Rwandan candidate to head OIF

first_img News July 10, 2018 – Updated on July 11, 2018 RSF worried by Rwandan candidate to head OIF At their summit in Antananarivo in November 2016, the OIF’s heads of state and government reiterated their commitment to “guarantee effective protection of journalists and freedom of the press.”Every year OIF awards the “media innovation francophone Prize” along with RSF and RFI. The next secretary-general will be chosen at a summit in the Armenian capital of Yerevan on 11-12 October. Eight journalists have been killed or have disappeared in Rwanda since 1996 while 35 have had to flee the country. The number of press freedom violations tallied by RSF has fallen in recent years but censorship is still ubiquitous and journalists still routinely censor themselves to avoid being targeted by the regime. “How is the OIF going to be able to defend media pluralism and press freedom in accordance with its human rights goals if it is run by one of the top leaders of a country that has been trampling on the right to inform and persecuting journalist for the past 18 years?” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire asked. “It is the OIF’s ability to defend independent journalists and media as vital development actors in the French-speaking world that is at stake.” Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is concerned about Rwandan foreign minister Louise Mushikiwabo’s candidacy to be the next secretary-general of the International Organization of the Francophonie (OIF). Although the Rwandan government is one of the worst press freedom violators, she has significant support and has every chance of being elected. News Help by sharing this information Rwanda is ranked 156th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. Only five of the OIF’s 58 member countries have worse rankings.

Ad Campaign Targeted at Helping Homeowners Avoid Foreclosure Rescue Scams

first_img New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has announced a targeted advertising campaign and consumer education initiative to assist homeowners in his state avoid foreclosure rescue scams.The ads will appear in billboards and on Facebook in the areas that have reported foreclosure rescue scams most frequently. Typically, a scammer will promise the distressed homeowner a lifeline out of foreclosure but then take the homeowners money while not providing the help that was promised.The series of ads promotes homeowners to visit, which gives homeowners access to the Homeowner Protection Program (HOPP), a network of nearly 90 housing counseling and legal service agencies funded by Schneiderman’s office. HOPP provides free services to distressed homeowners who are facing foreclosure.”The most powerful tools to stop mortgage rescue scams are educated, vigilant homeowners,” Schneiderman said. “These scams are particularly pernicious because they take victims of the housing crash and make them victims again. My office will do all we can to ensure homeowners have the tools they need to protect themselves and we will continue to vigorously pursue scammers who target vulnerable homeowners.””The most powerful tools to stop mortgage rescue scams are educated, vigilant homeowners.” is a web-based app launched by Schneiderman’s office in December 2014 in response to complaints about the prevalence of foreclosure rescue scams in New York. According to the Lawyer Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, New York homeowners have submitted more than 2,700 complaints about foreclosure rescue scams documenting at least $8.25 million in losses. That computes to an average of about $4,183 for victim of a foreclosure rescue scam, about $900 more than the national average. Among states, only California and Florida have logged more complaints than New York in the Loan Modification Scam Database. Homeowners can often lose more beyond was directly stolen from them in the scam if their home subsequently goes into foreclosure as a result.Foreclosure rescue scammers have stolen about $100 million from more than 42,000 homeowners, according to a report by the Center for NYC Neighborhoods and the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law in December 2014.The ad campaign aims to direct information to New York homeowners who are most at risk of being victimized by a foreclosure rescue scam on how to avoid such scams and were they can go for assistance.On, homeowners can do the following:Search government-vetted companies. Consumers can search a company’s name to determine if that company is “government-vetted,” (either a member of the HOPP network or a HUD-certified counseling agency).Locate nearby counseling partners. Homeowners can find the nearest HOPP grantee by using an interactive map.Report scams: Homeowners who are working with a company they suspect of operating a scam have the option to file a complaint with the AG’s office.Get tips. AGScamHelp offers homeowners information on how to recognize a foreclosure scam, including sample scam letters.Funds from the 2012 National Mortgage Settlement, a $25 billion agreement between 49 state attorneys general (all but Oklahoma) and the nation’s five largest servicers, are supporting the site and the new advertising campaign.
