Chief executive Lars Olofsson said in a statement: “Our transformation plan is delivering planned results and makes us confident of achieving our 2010 objectives.” The cautious comments, plus news of an unexpected €69m one-off charge in Brazil, where Carrefour also faces weak hypermarket sales, has kept the shares under pressure. Execution Noble analyst Caroline Gulliver said: “Although figures were in line with expectations, comments from the chief financial officer about the European summer sales took the shine off and it looks as though whilst the French business may be improving, some of Carrefour’s other key markets are deteriorating.” Carrefour, behind only US group Wal-Mart in sales, confirmed that it expected an underlying operating profit of around €3.1bn for the full year, having achieved €1.096bn in the first-half.

However, the NHS accounts for less than half of Healthcare’s revenues and the present uncertainty in the UK has been partly offset by strong international growth, it said. Bleasdale said trading would improve as the coalition had secured frontline spending. Tags: NULLlast_img read more

I’d avoid the Marks & Spencer share price and buy this growth stock

first_imgI’d avoid the Marks & Spencer share price and buy this growth stock See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Marks & Spencer (LSE: MKS) is one of the UK’s most storied retailers. Unfortunately, during the past few years, the company has just not been able to do anything right. The group has lurched from one problem to another. Sales have declined and so have profits. The stock price has followed suit. And I don’t think the firm is going to change direction any time soon. That why I’m avoiding the Marks & Spencer share price for the time being.But there’s one organisation I’d much rather own, as this business has a proven track record of impressive earnings and sales growth. 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…Avoid the Marks & Spencer share priceEven before the pandemic, Marks & Spencer was struggling. The group reported a net profit of nearly £500m in 2015. That made it one of the country’s largest and most profitable retailers.However, by 2020, net income had collapsed. It fell 90% to £42m in the four years to 2019. At the same time, group debt more than doubled, and return on capital employed — a measure of profit for every £1 invested in the business — fell by more than three quarters. Looking at these fundamentals, I don’t think it’s surprising that the Marks & Spencer share price has fallen by more than 75% since 2015. By comparison, Avon Rubber (LSE: AVON) shares have surged by more than 340% over the same period. This suggests Avon has outperformed M&S by 415%, excluding dividends, since 2015. The Avon way I believe the main reason why Avon has outperformed the Marks & Spencer share price over the past five years is its culture. While the retailer has changed strategy and thrown money at expansion in a tough sector, Avon has doubled down on what it does best. In this case, that’s personal protection systems. This niche business is hardly exciting, but it can be profitable if done right, which is exactly what Avon has been doing. As a result, as Marks’ profits have collapsed, Avon’s have surged. Analysts are expecting the group to report a net income of £40m for its current financial year, up 360% since 2015. As long as the personal protective equipment producer maintains this course, I’m incredibly optimistic about its potential. Not only is the group growing earnings, but it also has a strong balance sheet. At the end of its latest financial period, Avon’s cash balance was £100m. This could provide additional firepower for complementary acquisitions.Then there’s the company’s dividend. Earnings growth and a strong balance sheet have enabled management to increase the payout at an average annual rate of 30% over the past five years. Once again, I think this trend is likely to continue as the business builds on its existing market position. So that’s why I’d buy Avon over the Marks & Spencer share price. I think the former’s growth is just getting started, while I reckon the latter will continue to struggle.  Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

McDonald, deputy chief operating officer and director of mission for the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society.“The significance is that this is the first major, sizable grant the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society has made in support of sustainability,” said McDonald.Since 2013, the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society has been working with all Province IX dioceses – the Dominican Republic, Ecuador Central, Ecuador Litoral, Colombia, Venezuela, Honduras and Puerto Rico – to develop a plan for financial self-sustainability and to further secure their ministries.The 18-year-plan to secure mission and ministry in Province IX is consistent with the second of Anglican Communion’s Five Marks of Mission: To teach, baptize, and nurture new believers. The current triennium’s budget was based on the Five Marks of Mission.The Province IX dioceses adopted self-sustainability as a focus in 2012; in addition to the Dominican Republic, Honduras and Ecuador Central have made significant strides toward securing their mission and ministry.The 2013-2015 budget allocated $2.9 million in block grants over the triennium and also included an additional $1 million for Province IX with the goal of “strengthening the province for sustainable mission.”The Province IX sustainability plan was adopted by Executive Council in 2014.General Convention will be asked via Resolution A015 will to continue its support of the plan in the 2016-2018 triennium.The Mark 2 plan signified a remarkable shift in the church’s approach to aiding overseas dioceses, and was a direct result of sustainability work that began in 2011 during a Church Pension Group-sponsored conference in Tela, Honduras, that brought together the Province IX dioceses to explore sustainability, said McDonald.“The really remarkable aspect of the Mark of Mission plan … is the courageous leadership and vision of the leaders of the dioceses of Province IX. While we often talk about ‘securing ministry’ and ‘sustainable plans,’ the leaders of Province IX talk about how they believe it’s good for the spiritual life of Province IX. They are breaking old colonial models of dependency and leading us all into a model of ministry that is built on partnership. McDonald said.  “That is the true vision for this work.”Each of the Province IX dioceses considered in the plan will eventually receive a focus grant based on a strategic plan for self-sustainability in addition to the block grants distributed annually.In the coming years, the block grant amount received by the Dominican Republic will decrease, and in 10 years’ time it will stop. The same will happen in the remaining five Province IX dioceses as they reach financial sustainability. As each diocese becomes sustainable, they have committed to working with the province’s other dioceses to help them achieve the same goal.“We give infinite thanks to God for the initiative taken by the Presiding Bishop, the General Convention to designate the funds to contribute to the dioceses of Province IX to gradually overcome the financial dependence, by taking their own initiatives, which lead to sustainability of the mission in their respective places,” said Holguín.The Dominican Republic received the first focus grant because the diocese had an existing plan and was further along the path toward financial sustainability.For instance, in the Dominican Republic:Local congregations, most of which have limited resources, have begun to take responsibility for some of their own costs, stewardship, utilities, maintenance, clergy salaries, Christian education and social programs.Congregations have started entrepreneurial programs.The diocese’s schools, conference centers and institutions continue to grow in their own administrative capacities and the services they offer, increasing their income and contribution to the diocese and its mission in the country.The Dominican Development Group and the Episcopal Church’s annual subsidy provide continued support.In 1998, the Dominican Development Group was formed with the primary goal of seeking the “human, material and financial resources that are required to maintain the diocese’s rate of growth and to provide the diocese with the ability to maintain ‘quality’ programs.”In some 15 years, the DDG has raised more than $10 million to finance the building of infrastructure, including churches, schools, day care centers and medical clinics, in the Dominican Republic. It is held up as a model of entrepreneurship across Province IX.The $950,000 focus grant will shore up the diocese’s existing endowment, which is invested locally in the Dominican Republic’s financial markets. Currently, the Dominican economy is one of the fastest growing in Latin America.In 2014, the diocese earned a 15 percent return on its investment. Its sustainability plan stipulates that 20 percent of the gains be added to the endowment, said Holguín.— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter with the Episcopal News Service.

George North beats Alex Cuthbert to set up great Scarlets try

first_imgThursday Mar 29, 2012 George North beats Alex Cuthbert to set up great Scarlets try Star Welsh winger George North made his return to the Scarlets this past weekend and proved vital in their win over the Cardiff Blues, as he came on late in the match and showed more of his Six Nations form to set up a lovely try. North, still just 19 years old and already having racked up 21 Test caps, came off the bench and made his impact immediately. His strength and balance saw him burst through the tackle of Welsh wing team mate Alex Cuthbert, which allowed him to pop the ball to flying lock Dominic Day.It was 19-14 to the Scarlets at the time, so it proved to be a decisive try in their 26-14 win.Cuthbert had a mixed game as he made some awful mistakes, but then on occasion provided moments of magic, including an intercept try. North got the last laugh though, and one up on the lanky Blues winger with this strong run.North is a serious contender for the British & Irish Lions tour of Australia next year, and is arguably the most exciting young winger in world rugby right now. The Scarlets have done well to hang onto him, and earlier this week he stated that he’s not going anywhere.“I’m very happy down at the Scarlets at the moment,” he told the BBC.“I’m getting game time on the pitch and at my age that’s what you want to get, a bit more exposure and experience out there. I can’t see myself going elsewhere right now. I’m enjoying my rugby in Wales. I’m there for two years now. So happy days really.”This try may not be mindblowingly amazing as there was a straight missed tackle, but many of you will be keen to see the one-on-one between the two Welsh wingers, and of course more of North in action. The support play from second rower Day is nothing to be scoffed at either.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries 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.

This project is not about form. It is about creating something that Sweden can´t offer – a nice climate! It has been verified that the space inside the glass house has the same climate as Sevilla in southern Spain. Save this picture!© Krister EngströmIn Träslövsläge just south of Varberg on the Swedish west coast Karin and Sven-Olav acquired a parcel of farmland. This property is located along an old village street with a vast open field behind. In addition to the old traditional main building a large barn and a smaller cottage are situated on the plot. To the south there is an extensive orchard with a rich variety of trees. The buildings are placed in parallel on both sides of a courtyard whereas the traditional farm typology of this rural area dictates buildings to be placed on three sides of the yard. Since the main building was small and in poor condition the growing family needed more space. In addition to this a large glassed entrance was also required.Save this picture!The solution was to frame the courtyard with a 250 sqm greenhouse and place a smaller 70 sqm building inside. In this way the view of the orchard was saved; you see it through the glass when you enter the courtyard from the street. The total building cost equalled that of a 100 sqm house; the difference in size of the indoor space corresponds to a normal living room. So instead of 30 sqm living room in a conventional house they got 150 sqm of living space in the glazed structure. The greenhouse was built out of standard components and erected by a separate contractor. Save this picture!© Krister EngströmThe plan was reorganized so that the existing main building houses the bedrooms in order to avoid complicated technical installations in an old building. Another reason for this was the ability to lower the room temperature in these spaces to reduce heat loss from the poorly insulated house. The new house takes care of all the technology-intensive functions such as laundry, bathroom and kitchen. On the roof an Arabian Nights Terrace with North African climate is arranged. Save this picture!© Unit ArkitekturThe old building was carefully renovated – both interior and exterior – in accordance with the clients. Floor heating is installed in both buildings. The new building has a concrete slab foundation with a surface of pigmented smooth cast concrete. Generally construction materials with high thermal inertia were selected to counteract temperature fluctuations. Walls are made up of solid light-weight concrete blocks with gypsum plaster on the inside. The roof consists of prefabricated Leca* beams with 100mm hard insulation on top. Topmost is a pressure distributing walkable 30mm layer of concrete. Save this picture!© Unit ArkitekturThe greenhouse is built with standard components, including climate controlling technology such as automatic vents in the roof ridge and shading textiles with reflective aluminium coating. The ventilation and temperature is controlled by a computer. To avoid overheating in summer the inner house is supplied with pre-cooled air from ducts buried in the ground. During the cold season the same ducts help to pre-heat the fresh air and lower the need for additional heating. In the glazed space there are two climate zones, one at ground level and one – markedly warmer – in the terrace on the roof.

On the contrary there has been a gradual realization process going on since 2006 where the garden is prioritized.Project gallerySee allShow lessIn Progress: Milstein Hall Steel / OMAArticlesMonaco Pavilion / NAÇO ArchitectureArticles Share “COPY” Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/60444/glass-house-unit-arkitektur-ab Clipboard Projects Photographs Glass House / Unit Arkitektur ABSave this projectSaveGlass House / Unit Arkitektur AB CopyHouses•Träslövsläge, Swedenlast_img read more
