No InstallTaonga: The Island Farm whatsapp BANKS and miners pushed Britain’s top share index higher yesterday, lifted by further proof that the economic recovery in the United States is on track. The FTSE 100 index closed up 42.25 points, or 0.7 per cent, at 6000.07, extending Tuesday’s 1.6 per cent rise.The index has recovered from a sharp dip at the beginning of the week as the focus has shifted from the political troubles in the Middle East to the health of the global economic recovery.Yesterday’s strong reading on the labour market in the United States backed up strong manufacturing data on Tuesday from the world’s biggest economy, and gave a steer ahead of Friday’s January US jobs report. The data shored up investor appetite for riskier assets such as mining stocks, which had been dented due to fears over the impact of the political unrest in Egypt.ENRC added 3.8 per cent after the miner reported a rise in fourth-quarter ferroalloy production.Miners Lonmin and Rio Tinto were also among the top risers yesterday, climbing 4.1 and 3.8 per cent respectively. Banks saw good support on the back of improved investor sentiment, with Standard Chartered up 1.7 per cent.There was promising news from the Europe, where Germany and France reached a consensus on steps to boost economic coordination within the Eurozone as part of a comprehensive anti-crisis package that will also see the scope of Europe’s bailout fund bolstered.“Investors are looking for more proper answers to all the issues that are still there from the financial crisis,” said Lothar Mentel, chief investment officer at Octopus Investments. “Once they have been answered, then those doom-mongers will have a less of an argument to cause these short-term stampedes,” he said, referring to recent volatility on the FTSE 100.Chipmaker CSR rose 2.9 per cent after its rival Broadcom speculated that Qualcomm, another chipmaker, could buy the British company to bolster its Bluetooth and FM radio range.Imperial Tobacco added 5.9 per cent after the cigarette maker surprised investors with a return to volume growth in the last quarter of 2010.“We think this should put a stop to the recent rot in the share price and create a platform for a more balanced ticket of top line delivery in FY11,” Investec Securities said in a note.Peer British American Tobacco added 1.4 per cent.On the second tier, Pace, the world’s largest maker of set-top boxes, gained 10.6 per cent after traders highlighted a newspaper report saying the British firm has won a key contract with an Indian pay-television provider.On the downside, defensives such as International Power, down 3.4 per cent, were among the top fallers yesterday. National Grid shed 2.1 per cent as Investec kept its “sell” rating on the utility, saying Ofgem’s seminar on Tuesday only served to highlight the regulatory uncertainty facing the industry.Drugmaker AstraZeneca and TUI Travel fell 2.8 and 1.8 per cent respectively after going ex-dividend.GKN dropped 4.9 per cent after broker Credit Suisse suggested that their profit margins were at risk from rising commodity prices. center_img whatsapp Wednesday 2 February 2011 7:28 pm KCS-content More From Our Partners I blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org Sharelast_img read more

In fact, after recent declines, shares in the oil and gas giant are currently changing hands at a 25-year low. However, I think this could be an excellent opportunity for long-term investors to snap up a share of this business at a discount price. Today, I’m going to explain 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…BP share price valueInvestor sentiment towards BP has plunged this year for two primary reasons. For a start, the oil price has collapsed. This has had a significant impact on the company’s profits. At the same time, the shift away from dirty hydrocarbons towards renewable energy has accelerated.These two factors seem to have caught the company and its management by surprise. The group is now struggling to catch up, and the BP share price may continue to languish in the short term for this reason. Still, the company is taking action. Management is planning to invest more in renewable energy projects, and the business is starting to cut costs. That said, it could be some time before these efforts begin to filter through to the group’s bottom line. Long-term outlookBP is currently facing a challenging operating environment. But I reckon it’s only a matter of time before the company’s turnaround starts to gain traction.The firm remains one of the largest energy businesses in the world, and is still generating billions of dollars in cash from its oil and gas activities every year. By reinvesting these profits back into the business, the company should be able to adapt to the new normal in the energy world. At the same time, as cost-cutting efforts filter through the business, the BP share price should benefit from improved investor sentiment as profit margins begin to recover. City analysts are expecting this to begin to happen next year. Based on current oil price and profit margin expectations, analysts currently expect the business to report earnings per share of 20p for 2021. That puts the stock on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of just under 11. Meanwhile, the BP share price is projected to support a dividend yield of 7.3% in 2021. This is significantly above the market average, which sits at around 3.5%. UndervaluedAll of the above suggests to me that the BP share price is undervalued at current levels. As the business progresses with its plans to invest more in renewable energy and cut costs, profits should rise in the years ahead. At the same time, investors can look forward to that market-beating 7.3% dividend yield. In my opinion, there aren’t many other companies that offer this combination of potential growth, value and income. As such, I think it’s likely BP could produce high total returns for investors from now on, when owned as part of a diversified portfolio. last_img read more

first_img Virgin Money’s charitable foundation the Virgin Money Foundation has announced its first round of individual grants to the North East.Almost £900,000 will be shared between 25 charitable organisations across the region.  Grants of up to £50,000 each are being awarded to a range of community projects from social enterprises creating jobs in a healthy food takeaway and a specialist garment manufacturing business, to a housing service for vulnerable women and children.The Foundation formally launched in August 2015 with £8 million of funding over the next four years, contributed by Virgin Money and the Cabinet Office. Also in August, the Foundation invited applications from community projects in the region looking for funding of between £10,000 and £50,000, and eligible applications were judged against criteria including overall impact, enterprising behaviour, jobs created and the amount of additional investment likely to come into an area.Nine grants will go towards helping disadvantaged young people into employment, while a further nine will support a new or existing social enterprise, and seven will be linked to helping homeless people find and keep a home.Recipients include social enterprise Food Nation (pictured), Lynemouth Community Trust’s Weave project, and housing service Nacro.Edward Wakefield, chairman of Virgin Money Foundation, said:“The Foundation has been set up to help people deliver real, sustainable change in the communities that need it most.  We received high-quality applications from a wide range of good causes throughout the region.

Arctic air locked in over Midwest as several snow storms move from Midwest to the East

first_imgABC NewsBy JON HAWORTH, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A quick moving storm brought heavy snow to the Northeast on Sunday as the snow came down at rates up to 2 inches per hour in some spots.Fourteen inches of snow was reported in Pascoag, Rhode Island, and 12 inches of snow was reported in Norfolk, Massachusetts.Parts of New Jersey, and New York reported up to 9 inches of snow and some spots in Connecticut and Pennsylvania reported over 10 inches of snow while Central Park in New York City reported 4.5 inches.In the Midwest, polar air continued to grip nearly the entire region on Sunday morning as parts of northern Minnesota and North Dakota reported wind chills below -50 degrees and Chicago reported a wind chill of -24 degrees on Sunday morning.On Monday, wind chills are not as bad but it is still absolutely frigid across much of the Midwest.It feels like the -20s in Minneapolis Monday morning while in Chicago, it is feeling like 5 degrees.Elsewhere, wind chills are in the teens and single digits as well in much of the Northeast.The Arctic air is locking into place over the Midwest, with no real significant warm up in sight.Additionally, at the southern edge of the Arctic air is a stalled frontal boundary that is going to cause numerous weather concerns through the week.A quick moving storm will develop Monday in the central U.S. as it races towards the East Coast and, as it arrives near the Northeast by Tuesday, it will be just organized enough to bring a thump of snow to major northeast cities.The burst of snow will arrive in the morning hours of Tuesday and the snow should have no problem accumulating, and although accumulations should be limited to a couple of inches, it will likely cause hazardous travel.Another system will arrive in the Midwest by Wednesday and this one will bring snow from Kansas City to Chicago as well as a wintry mix from Oklahoma to Kentucky.Once again accumulations should be rather light but likely just enough to cause impacts on roadways in the region.On Thursday morning, this latest round of snow and ice will arrive in the Northeast — once again for the morning hours meaning dangerous road conditions are expected.Through Thursday, the combination of these systems should bring a wide swath of 3 to 6 inches of snow from Missouri to New England with a few locations likely to exceed 6 inches.This snowfall forecast is from both systems so many people could see 2 to 3 inches by Tuesday and another 2 to 3 inches by Thursday — just enough to cause treacherous roads.Believe it or not, this pattern doesn’t seem to change too much over the upcoming weekend and there will likely be more opportunities for snow in these regions.While there is some indication a more organized storm could be an issue later this upcoming weekend, there is not nearly enough agreement with the forecast models to place the magnitude or scope of potential upcoming snow.However, one thing that does seem certain is the cold air that is really locked in place.Saturday’s wind chill is looking pretty similar to Monday’s and this weekend’s wind chill with some of the Arctic air reaching further south and further east.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

When your ZIP code costs you more

first_imgWhat if you can save hundreds of dollars on SAT tutoring by one weird trick? Try a different ZIP code.When researching the Princeton Review website for SAT tutoring, four Harvard College students discovered that the site required a ZIP code be entered prior to learning the cost of the private online tutoring services. With this information, Keyon Vafa, Christian Haigh, Alvin Leung, and Noah Yonack tested 33,000 ZIP codes. The results? The Princeton Review would charge you from $2,760 to $3,240 for 24 hours of private online SAT tutoring depending on your ZIP code. The student researchers learned that it even made a difference whether you lived in ZIP codes 13901 or 13905 in Binghamton, N.Y., where you’re charged $2,760 versus paying $3,000 if you live in 13903 or 13904.Their research, which appeared online in Technology Science, published by the Data Privacy Lab at Harvard University, was advanced by ProPublica’s data journalists Jeff Larson, Surya Mattu, and Julia Angwin, who published an accompanying paper in Technology Science that found areas with high Asian populations are 1.8 times more likely to be paying more for the tutoring services than similar areas without Asians.
