BEST OF THE BROKERS

first_img BEST OF THE BROKERS KCS-content Monday 4 October 2010 8:18 pm AHOLDRBS has lowered its target price, but still rates the food retailer a “buy” with a target of €11.80. The broker has cut earnings per share forecasts for 2010 to 2012 by four to six per cent, chiefly due to the recent strength of the euro against the dollar. It believes the departure of chief executive John Rishton will make little difference.ALEXONBrewin Dolphin rates the clothing retailer an “add” with a 12-month target price of 21p. The broker has cut its earnings per share forecasts by 25 per cent for 2011 due to what it sees as delays in improvement. It maintains that the firm shows promise but believes investors will be wary of adding to retail exposure in the run-up to Christmas.PETROFACArden Partners has downgraded the oil group to “neutral” from “add” with a target price of £13.67. While the broker views last week’s interim results as strong, it sees better value elsewhere in the sector. It has raised its earnings per share by 5 cents to $1.20 in the current financial year, on the back of $4.17bn sales.

US home prices fall for sixth straight month

first_img Share Tuesday 22 February 2011 10:11 am Show Comments ▼ whatsapp US single-family home prices fell for the sixth month in a row in December, bringing them closer to the low seen in 2009, a closely watched survey has found.The S&P/Case Shiller composite index of 20 metropolitan areas declined 0.4 per cent in December from November on a seasonally adjusted basis. The figure was in line with analysts’ expectations.For the year 2010, prices fell 2.4 per cent, slightly more than the 2.3 per cent analysts had forecast.“Despite improvements in the overall economy, housing continues to drift lower and weaker,” David Blitzer, chairman of the index committee at S&P, said in a statement.While the composite held above its 2009 low, 11 cities hit their lowest levels since home prices peaked in 2006 and 2007, the report showed.Unadjusted for seasonal impact, home prices fell 1 percent for the month, leaving them just 2.3 per cent above their April 2009 troughs, S&P said.Eighteen of the 20 cities showed annual price declines in December and 19 out of 20 saw monthly price drops.During the fourth quarter, home prices declined 3.9 per cent from the previous quarter and were down 4.1 per cent compared to the fourth quarter 2009. whatsapp US home prices fall for sixth straight month alison.lock Tags: NULL Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe Wrap’Sex and the City’ Sequel Series at HBO Max Adds 4 More ReturningThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Playtech’s Quickspin moves into Italy with PokerStars deal

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tech & innovation Playtech’s Quickspin moves into Italy with PokerStars deal Quickspin is to launch its gaming content in Italy for the first time after entering into a new partnership with The Stars Group’s flagship PokerStars brand. The Playtech-owned games studio will initially roll out a selection of slot titles such as Sakura Fortune, Dragon Shine and Phoenix Sun, with more content to follow in the coming months. “We are delighted to have secured a deal with Pokerstars. Going live with them is exciting for us and continues our exciting plans for expansion,” Quickspin chief executive Daniel Lindberg said.“We live and breathe slots and are passionate about what we do,” he explained. “Our mission is to create ones that players love, and we’re looking forward to taking the country by storm with some of our most exciting games.”PokerStars joins the likes of LeoVegas, Betsson, Mr Green, JackpotJoy’s Vera&John, Kindred Group and Danske Spill as operators that have content deals in place with Quickspin. The studio was founded in 2011, before being acquired by acquired by iGaming solutions giant Playtech in 2016. PokerStars was awarded an online casino licence in Italy earlier this year. It was one of around 80 operators that submitted applications to the Agenzia delle Dogane e dei Monopoli after the Italian regulator opened a new licensing window for the country’s iGaming market in January this year. Last month, The Stars Group reported a 74% year-on-year increase in revenue to $572m (£449.5m/€504.2m) for the third quarter of 2018, including 12% growth in revenue from Italy to €37.8m.

Bidders prepare for National Lottery tender battle

first_img Tags: Charitable Gaming Mobile Online Gambling CSR 17th December 2019 | By contenteditor Bidders prepare for National Lottery tender battle A number of high-profile gaming businesses look set to compete in the tender process, which could see the contract to operate the UK National Lottery wrestled away from long-term incumbent Camelot for the first time.While Camelot has operated the lottery since its inception in 1994, winning new contracts in 2001 and 2007, it looks set to face significant competition in the 2020 tender process.Gambling Commission chief executive Neil McArthur has previously suggested there was “significant untapped potential” in the franchise, and that he hoped to see technology giants compete for the contract.Fighting for the tender will be the likes of Health Lottery operator Northern & Shell. It told iGamingBusiness.com that after 25 years under Camelot’s control, it was “time for a change” to the lottery’s management when the current contract expires.Northern & Shell, which previously owned a number of national newspapers including the Daily Express and Daily Star, has assembled a team to manage its bid, and has already received the draft invitation to apply (ITA) from the tender managers.It pointed out that having run the Health Lottery since 2011, it was the only other provider to have a national retail presence in the UK, which it said would give it an advantage over challengers.It expects that bids will be filed in March 2020, with the final decision of the tender panel being announced towards the end of the year.Czech gaming conglomerate Sazka Group, meanwhile, has long been credited with an interest in running the National Lottery. The business, which also runs the Sazka brand in the Czech Republic and holds a controlling stake in Greece’s OPAP, was previously expected to float on the London Stock Exchange ahead of challenging in the tender.However, these plans were ultimately shelved due to market volatility. Sazka has since competed for tenders in Italy’s SuperEnalotto and Turkey’s Milli Piyango. However, in each case it was unsuccessful, with Sisal prevailing in both cases, in partnership with Demirören Holding in the Turkish process.Sazka would not confirm nor deny that it will participate in the National Lottery tender.“As one of the Europe’s largest and most successful lottery companies, operating national lotteries in Greece, Italy, Austria and the Czech Republic, Sazka Group is aware of the upcoming license renewal process for the UK National Lottery,” a spokesperson for the business told iGB.“Once the UK Gambling Commission has announced the terms and conditions for bids we will evaluate them to determine the Sazka Group’s response.” Other potential bidders include Sir Richard Bransons’s Virgin Group, which media reports suggest has already met with the tender managers.Overseeing the tender is John Tanner, a manager brought in from Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs by the GB Gambling Commission to lead the process. He is being supported by Andrew Wilson, as commercial director, with investment bank Rothschild & Co as lead financial advisor.For the first six months of Camelot’s 2019-20 financial year, the operator reported a 13.5% year-on-year increase in sales to £3.92bn. This was aided by a 40.0% jump in digital sales for the six months to 28 September 2019, which climbed to £1.16bn.

Photo/Dick Davis[Episcopal News Service] A year ago, members of Episcopal congregations in the Diocese of Vermont were ferrying peanut butter, casseroles, space heaters and cleaning supplies via cars and trucks along the state’s highways in what was dubbed the “Freeway Relay” to aid Hurricane Irene flood victims.Today, the relay has ended, but the work to help people rebuild their lives and homes continues.“People are still reeling,” said Ann Cooper, who is coordinating Episcopal Relief & Development grants in the diocese. “There are people who fall between the cracks, and they’re still between them. And for all the people we help, which isn’t enough, we know that there are at least an equal number of people out there that need help. Part of the problem is finding them, and the other problem is funding them.”Relief agencies across the state “report that they are still getting new applications every day,” said the Rev. E. Angela Emerson, diocesan minister for stewardship development. “There’s still a lot of disconnection and relocation and resettling that’s going on.”An e-mail soon after the hurricane to Emerson’s office at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in White River Junction from a church needing food for its frozen-food distribution program helped launch the Freeway Relay. St. Paul’s became a focal point for the relay along Interstate 91, which runs south from the northeast corner of Vermont. Another relay route ran on the state’s western side. By early October 2011, virtually all of the diocese’s 48 congregations had participated in some way, collecting, donating or ferrying food and supplies to where they were needed, Canon to the Ordinary Lynn Bates said last fall.While that relief effort ran its course, the need continues.“The needs are so individualized that you can’t really mobilize things en masse,” Emerson said. “It really has to be tailored to the individual.”“People are still rebuilding,” she said. Some families are trying to complete construction and return home, while others haven’t begun rebuilding yet. Some need fuel assistance, others siding for their homes, still others skilled labor to tackle the renovations. The challenge is keeping in touch with people – most of whom have returned to work – and matching resources to individual needs, Emerson said.The diocese has made grants large and small, from paying shipping costs for donated blankets and delivery charges for hay to two farms to aiding the rebuilding of a flood wall and helping to fund debris removal and debt recovery for a small town. Initially, the diocese received $20,000 to $25,000 in grants from various sources plus a $20,000 Episcopal Relief & Development grant, Cooper said. Additional grants from the church agency were made for $50,000 last year and $150,000 in 2012, with probably $55,000 of that yet unspent, she said.“Many of our grants have gone to people who have fallen between the cracks, who are not eligible for FEMA funding or have been turned down, who discovered damage too late to apply for aid, small businesses, people who have flown beneath the radar,” she said. “In addition, we have tried to help communities recover and prepare for the future, are working with children affected by the flood, have helped build and/or restore community and school gardens throughout the state, etc.”Bill Sturtavent’s trailer in Sharon, Vermont, was destroyed by Hurricane Irene flooding. Photo/Dick DavisThe diocese also has been building relationships.“In addition to the money we’ve given out, what excites me and inspires me is the working relationship we’ve been able to establish with government agencies – local government and state government – and with long-term recovery committees and with other churches,” Cooper said. One grant, for example, went toward a plan to help restore a streambed to mitigate future flooding and to involve other Episcopal churches, denominations, communities and service groups in the project.“Part of my job has been to talk outreach committees or whole parishes to try to bring home the continuing serious needs for recovery work,” she said. “The streambed project came out of one such talk.”Back at White River Junction, the relief work distributing supplies that was based at St. Paul’s recently ended. A new ecumenical ministry called the After Irene Ministry – or AIM – of the Upper Valley, is forming in its place, involving other Episcopal and Congregational churches.“There are many, many needs out there, and we’re trying to sort that out,” said Holly Hall, a St. Paul’s member who visits homes to identify and record flood victims’ needs and help them manage their stress.Volunteers have continued delivering water to families who still have none and firewood to replace wood too loaded with post-flooding silt to burn. But as much as such physical needs continue, emotional needs are surfacing.“Truthfully, the pain is probably more severe now than it was eight months ago because of the reality of what’s been lost and having to still adjust,” Hall said. She’s visited a diabetic man weekly, for example. “When he saw me on Monday was the first time I really heard his anger and rage, because he was really getting in touch with it.”Over the phone, Hall choked up discussing the families she sees. Actually visiting is easier, she said. “Thinking about it is harder. What amazes me is the number of people that feel that it’s over. When you’re at the grassroots and you just simply visit once a week and you really can witness their high stress, it’s not over.”AIM is working to help rebuild community as well as aid individual families. Members are planning a Halloween service, for example, for Oct. 28 in the building of a former Congregational church in West Hartford.AIM now works with 58 clients, said Dick Davis, another St. Paul’s member. Rebuilding is a long-term issue for the area, not only in terms of infrastructure, but also in people’s lives, he said. “I think everyone from White River Junction up to Sharon, which is 20 miles, has probably spent every penny that they had in savings, and many of these people are retired. How do you replace that? So this has got some long-term rebuilding consequences.  … You could write a book on the individual stories.”Dream Builders volunteers from churches and a synagogue in Maryland erect a wall in a new home for the Hart family. Photo/Dick DavisThe work is “draining and exhilarating,” Emerson said, noting “the enormous amount of energy it takes to try and keep your own balance and take care of yourself.”“This is the kind of work that really changes lives,” she said. “You come into contact with people who are significantly traumatized, disoriented and in tremendous grief over all that they have lost. … It just evokes tremendous humility and gratitude in yourself, and just to really see the humility and the resiliency on the part of the people who are receiving the help and their desire to give back somehow – it’s just hard to put that into words.”Cooper sees the church’s rebuilding work as “evangelism by example.”“I don’t think you have to walk around with a Bible and a cross,” she said. “I think if you provide an example of Christ’s life in the world, that that’s evangelism.”The small town of Stockbridge was “devastated” by flooding, with some areas inaccessible for two weeks, she recalled. From the beginning, individual churches provided assistance. One day, one of the residents said: “You know, we all want to be Episcopalian!”“It’s evangelism by example,” Cooper said, “and that, to me, is the most effective kind.”— Sharon Sheridan is an ENS correspondent.

If you don’t get an application in, through the complex process and signed up before then, you have no guarantee of future funding,” he told the Belfast Telegraph.He added:“Despite the promise of the British Prime Minister to act in the interests of all, there has been no attempt to consult with myself, the Executive or the Irish government, about the best way forward in relation to European funds.”  59 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 EU funding to be fast trackedlast_img read more

Hopefully this prepares us for going forward next year.” Boschini talks: construction, parking, tuition, enrollment, DEI, a student trustee Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Boschini: ‘None of the talk matters because Jamie Dixon is staying’ TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Linkedin Men’s basketball scores season-low in NIT semifinals loss to Texas Facebook Previous articleWomen’s basketball’s hot shooting carries them to first round victoryNext articleBeach volleyball suffers ninth consecutive loss Garrett Podell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR ReddIt + posts ReddIt Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Facebook Garrett is a Journalism and Sports Broadcasting double major.

Collier Linkedin printNo. 6 seed TCU had its chances, but poor shooting down the stretch Friday in Detroit doomed the Horned Frogs against No. 11 seed Syracuse in its attempt to win an NCAA Tournament game for the first time since 1987.“It’s tough because we just didn’t want to be continually getting in the tournament, we wanted to make a run, win some games, but we came up short and it’s tough,” TCU guard Kenrich Williams said. “It’s going to be tough for a while for me and the rest of the seniors.”Against the Orange’s signature 2-3 zone defense, three-point shooting is usually required to beat it, and after starting the night hitting on three of its first five shots from deep, TCU missed 14 three-pointers of its 17 attempts.With the exception of forward Kouat Noi, who was 2 of 3 from behind the arc, TCU’s shooters struggled. The Horned Frogs’17.6 percent from the arc is the lowest of the season, and they shot 25 percent or lower in three of their last four games this season.“Good defensive teams, I think that’s part of it, and if you look at the teams we’ve played, I think slower-tempo teams,” TCU head coach Jamie Dixon said. “You’re not going to shoot, we’re probably not going to shoot 50 percent against them.”The Horned Frogs couldn’t make a shot from the field after a Kenrich Williams dunk with 14:16 left in the game. Williams finished his career with a team-high 14 points and eight rebounds. Horned Frog forward Vladimir Brodziansky ended the drought with a hook shot that cut Syracuse’s lead to one, 46-45, with five minutes remaining. The senior scored all but two of his 13 points in the second half.TCU forward Vladimir Brodziansky finishes around the rim against the Orange defense. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.

TCU pulled to within one with 3:30 left on a Williams put-back following a miss from behind the arc 3-pointer from Bane; however, the Horned Frogs never pulled closer and Syracuse build a five-point lead with just over a minute to go.“I thought our defense was real good tonight the whole game,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said. “They’re one of the best 3-point shooting teams and our guys didn’t give them any good shots the whole game.”The Orange then scored six of the next eight points, which gave them a five-point cushion, 54-49, when Robinson went to the free throw line with 30 seconds left to play. The junior hit one of two as TCU trailed by four, 54-50.Free throw shooting also played a key role in the Horned Frogs’ first round exit with TCU missing six of its 17 shots from the charity stripe in a game the team lost by five.Even though TCU had been struggling of late shooting, rebounding was a strong suit of Dixon’s team all season long, but the Horned Frogs were unable to win the battle on the glass, being out-rebounded by three in addition to turning the ball over six more times than the Orange.“You’ve got to get second shots, you’ve got to get put-backs, and I think that’s one of the things that hurt us and keep your turnovers low,” TCU head coach Jamie Dixon said. “The field goal percentage, obviously 34 in the second half, that’s going to get you in trouble, but there was the other things, too. You’ve got to do the other things, and we didn’t do those things.”Although TCU shot 40 percent from the field, three points higher than Syracuse, the Orange were nearly automatic at the free throw line, hitting on 12 of their 15 opportunities.Ultimately, Syracuse played the way they liked to play: a slow-paced, defensive slugfest.The Horned Frogs were held to 31 points fewer than their season average of 83 points per game, which ranked second in the Big 12 and 19th in the NCAA.“You’re probably not going to shoot as high a percentage against good teams, but you’ve got to do the other things, and we didn’t do those things,” Dixon said.last_img read more
