Reliance is expanding the plant to take advantage of a large recent natural gas find in India’s Krishan Godavari basin. GE expects to ship the turbines in the second half of 2011 to meet Reliance’s deadline of beginning operations at the expanded plant by March 2012, said Paul Browning, a GE vice president.GE expects demand for electricity, and thus turbines, to rise in India as the fast-growing economy exploits the new gas find, Browning said.

Africa Dashboard – August 2019

first_img Africa Dashboard – August 2019 Bingo 29th August 2019 | By Joanne Christie Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Mobile Online Gambling H2 Gambling Capital and iGaming Business present the latest Africa iGaming Dashboard Topics: Casino & games Lottery Sports betting Bingo Poker Email Address H2 Gambling Capital and iGaming Business are pleased to bring you the latest Africa iGaming Dashboard, which has been prepared ahead of ICE Africa in October.The estimates follow the evolution of the African igaming sector from 2012 with projections up to 2024. H2 predicts that African igaming gross win will more than double in the next five years, rising from US$996.2m (£812.2m) this year to $2bn in 2024.Due in part to poor internet connectivity, African gaming generally remains heavily retail dominated, however, H2 predicts that igaming as a percentage of African GGR will rise from 18% this year to 24.4% by 2024.After several years of rapid growth, mobile’s percentage of this looks set to remain relatively flat at about 63% over the next five years. It’s worth pointing out that this percentage was just 14.4% in 2012.With countries in Africa – particularly the biggest gaming markets – increasingly moving to regulate online gambling, the white market percentage of igaming is set to increase from 83.6% this year to 89.2% by 2024.Across both igaming and land-based gaming, casino is the most popular product in Africa, accounting for 41.9% of gross win this year.Betting is the second most popular vertical on the continent, capturing 35.8% of the market. While land-based betting currently accounts for the highest share of the sports betting total, the estimates show that by 2024 the percentage of revenues coming from online will be almost equal at 47.9%.Interestingly, however, the percentage of online sports betting GGR coming from mobile seems to have peaked over the past year or so, and H2 predicts this will tail off by a few percentage points over the coming years.Similarly, the white market percentage of online sports betting revenues will rise only a few percentage points further by 2024.H2 Gambling Capital is the gambling industry’s leading consulting, market intelligence and data team. The company has a track record of nearly 15 years focused on the global gambling industry, its projections have been influential in shaping legislators’ and investors’ views of the gambling sector across the globe.

We can also look at how brokers view these stocks. Brokers issue buy, outperform, hold, underperform, and sell recommendations. As of 7 May, 82% of broker recommendations for Persimmon were either buy or outperform, the highest percentage for our group of five.Building for the futureIn scoring highest in the analysis and being overwhelming recommended by brokers, Persimmon looks like a cheap and good company. But given the state of the UK economy at present and the pain that is to come, what does the future look like for housebuilders?The UK’s listed housebuilders are starting construction again this week, which is good news for the industry. I would imagine finishing off partly built homes will be the priority. Social distancing at building sites and a depressed housing market will make laying new foundations a challenging prospect. Homebuilders will be building less.Showrooms remain closed, and homebuyers are still cautious about taking on mortgages, which will make the backlog of houses challenging to clear. But things will pick up as the months roll on. Interest rates will remain low, which is a boon for borrowers. The banks are not in trouble like they were in the great financial crisis, and mortgage availability should pick up quickly this time around.Persimmon focuses on cheaper homes and first-time buyers. Demand for these types of properties tends to bounce back faster. During the last financial crisis, many homebuilders had shocking balance sheets. Persimmon currently operates with very little debt and appears to have ample liquidity.Cheap stock, good valueI believe that at the current share price, there is an opportunity to buy into Persimmon cheaply. Based on the analysis, broker recommendations, and thinking about the company’s prospects, I think Persimmon looks like a good company. FTSE investors should be on the lookout for cheap shares in good companies.

But just because a share is cheap does not mean it is worth buying. Cheap shares in good companies are what long-term investors should be looking for, and a simple stock screen can help find them.Shares trading at between 5 and 12 times earnings per share and less than 3 times book value per share can be considered cheap. Companies that have had negative five-year growth rates in either revenue or profit or with market caps of less than £5bn should be screened out.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…It’s cheap but is it good?The screen leaves five companies for consideration: Barratt Developments, Mondi, Persimmon, Rio Tinto, and Ryanair.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img Roland Head | Sunday, 31st May, 2020 | More on: AML It’s been a crazy year for Aston Martin Lagonda (LSE: AML) shareholders. The Aston Martin share price has crashed from 175p to a low of 27.5p, before doubling to around 55p. What’s next?I think that even the company’s biggest fans will admit it faces some problems at the moment. But I can see potential opportunities, too, with fresh funding and new management on board.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…Today I want to take a fresh look at this situation. Are Aston Martin shares a bargain, or are shareholders heading for a wipeout?New money, new managementThere’s definitely been some good news for shareholders recently. After Canadian billionaire Lawrence Stroll took a 20% stake in January, he installed himself as executive chair.Stroll contributed to a £500m fundraising that’s given the company some breathing room and is now taking steps to shake up Aston Martin’s management. Former boss Andy Palmer left the company on 25 May. Palmer will be replaced by Tobias Moers, who is currently chief executive of Mercedes-AMG.If you’re not familiar, AMG produces high performance versions of Mercedes-Benz cars. AMG sales have quadrupled since Moers took charge in 2013.In my view, Moers’ career experience makes him a good hire for Aston Martin. But I think there’s more to it than that.Aston Martin already has a technical partnership with AMG owner Daimler AG. Meanwhile, Stroll’s Racing Point F1 team uses Mercedes-Benz engines. And from 2021, this team will become the official Aston Martin F1 works team.Aston already has a history of using AMG engines. I suspect Aston Martin’s partnership with Mercedes will deepen. Mercedes might even buy the British company.I understand that purists might want to Aston Martin succeed on its own. But technology sharing is the norm these days. Remember that Bugatti, Porsche, Lamborghini, and Bentley are all owned by Volkswagen Group.I think investors should cheer Merc’s involvement with the British company. It could be good news for Aston’s share price.Worries, I’ve got a fewStroll controls a 20% equity stake in Aston Martin, so he faces some of the same risks as smaller shareholders. But Stroll is already a billionaire and this forms part of a bigger project for him, linked to his F1 team.The reality for small shareholders is that Aston Martin’s finances remain in a pretty shaky condition. At the end of the first quarter, the company reported a net debt/EBITDA leverage ratio of 10.4 times. That’s very high – I usually prefer to see this ratio under 2.5 times.Of course, earnings have been hit by the coronavirus lockdown. But Aston was already losing money and heavily indebted before this happened.The Aston Martin share price: my verdictI think that Aston Martin is in a much better position to succeed than it was six months ago. The launch of the new DBX SUV could boost sales and the business should get a marketing boost from the new James Bond movie later this year.However, I think equity investors still face a lot of risk due to the group’s high debt levels.Aston Martin has a great story. But I’d only buy these shares with money I could afford to lose. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images.

Is the Marks & Spencer share price too cheap to ignore now?

first_imgIs the Marks & Spencer share price too cheap to ignore now? Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE. If you’re 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio, and that you can consider building a position in all five right away. Marks & Spencer (LSE: MKS) was suffering long before the Covid-19 pandemic arrived. Over five years, the M&S share price is down a whopping 80%. And if you want something really scary, this year it fell lower than it’s ever been since the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 were born.Since lockdown, the retail rout has hit even harder. As I write, the M&S share price has fallen 50% since the start of the year.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…How low is too low?Is M&S oversold and a stock to buy now? To answer, I ask myself one key question: is it going to go bust? And I think the answer is a clear no. Profits are well down since the glory days, but I really don’t see much liquidity risk.At 28 March, net debt excluding lease liabilities (that is, the old way of doing things before new accounting rules came in) stood at £1.46bn. That’s for a company with annual revenue of £10.2bn. It doesn’t overly worry me.On valuation, the Marks & Spencer share price looks low, on a trailing price-to-earnings multiple of just six. Analysts, however, are forecasting a big earnings per share fall for the current year, though they do have a reversal penciled in for 2022. But right now, that seems a long way away.A tale of two businessesI see two major factors behind Marks & Spencer’s chances of making it through its chronic crisis. (Can you have a chronic crisis? I’d say M&S can.) The first is, inevitably, clothing. M&S is firmly failing to reach the younger end of its potential customer base. It’s been failing not just for years, but for decades. And that’s solidly behind the M&S share price slide.Unless it can turn that around, it’s going to keep relying on older people. Older folk might usually be seen as technically less clued up and not ones for shopping using only their thumbs. But during the Covid-19 crunch, more and more mature shoppers have been turning online. And M&S is not the obvious first stop.The other side to the business is, of course, food. And that’s going well. The nearest M&S to me is a food-only store, and it’s clearly doing great business. The tie-up with Ocado is also a very big move in the food direction, though many see it as an expensive and risky one.M&S share price survivalAs far as I can see, food seems to be the only hope. The survival of Marks & Spencer surely depends on it. But is that enough for me to want to buy the shares? It would be firmly abandoning the M&S that my generation grew up with. And, for investors, that means forgetting all we previously knew about it and revaluing it as a brand new business.And if a move to 100% food really is the future, what’s going to happen to all those big stores dotted around the country?There’s simply too much uncertainty here for me. And I have no clear idea of what M&S will look like in another five or 10 years. Buying into a company when I have no view of its future shape is not for me. Image source: Getty Images.

Joe Donnelly of Indiana.The award was given for his work on behalf of Indiana rural communities, agriculture and the Farm Credit System. ADFCC members are in Washington to meet with members of Congress about issues important to farmers and ranchers in AgriBank’s Midwestern District. The current deliberations on the Farm Bill are foremost on their agenda.“The leadership Senator Donnelly provides through his service on the Senate Agriculture Committee and the Senate Banking Committee is critical to the well-being of our rural communities and our agricultural producers across the country,” said Tony Wolfe, a grain and cattle farmer from Hazleton, Ind.; board member of Farm Credit lender Farm Credit Mid-America; and ADFCC member. “In particular, we greatly appreciate Senator Donnelly’s efforts to ensure the crop insurance program remains an effective risk management tool to help producers deal with the vagaries of weather and the markets. While the counter-cyclical programs also are important to our producers, crop insurance is a vital component of ensuring there is an adequate safety net. The Senate version of the Farm Bill includes several provisions championed by Senator Donnelly to improve risk management, conservation and export promotion programs, as well as to help address opioid abuse and food insecurity.”“I’m honored to have received this award,” Donnelly said. “I’m proud to advocate for Hoosier farmers through efforts to protect crop insurance, to make sure they have access to credit, and to do all I can to help farmers navigate significant challenges – from depressed commodity prices to chaotic trade markets and unforeseen weather events.”Farm Credit supports rural communities and agriculture with reliable, consistent credit and financial services, today and tomorrow. Farm Credit has been fulfilling its mission of helping rural America grow and thrive for more than a century by providing farmers with the capital they need to make their businesses successful and by financing vital infrastructure and communication services.

Facebook TCU quarterback Kenny Hill looks to pass against the Texas Tech defense.(Sam Bruton/TCU 360 staff photographer) printTCU and Texas Tech resumed their rivalry Saturday afternoon in Fort Worth. Texas Tech leads the all-time series over TCU 30-25-3. TCU has won the last two games, having defeated the Red Raiders 82-27 in Fort Worth and 55-52 in Lubbock.Here are five things to know about the first half between the Horned Frogs and Red Raiders.1. Defense starts off strongTCU defense dominated Tech offense early, forcing turnovers on first two possessions.Safety Nick Orr intercepted Red Raider quarterback Patrick Mahomes II at the TCU one-yard line for his team-leading fourth pick of the season. The interception was Orr’s sixth of his career, most among active Horned Frogs.TCU defensive end Matt Boeson forced a fumble on Mahomes and defensive tackle Chris Bradley recovered. TCU kicker Brandon Hatfield missed just his second field goal of the year from 37 yards on the Frogs’ following possession, so the Horned Frogs couldn’t capitalize on the second turnover.2. TCU offense emphasizes run game early Running back Derrick Green lined up as the wildcat QB and plunged into the end zone for a two-yard TD that gave the Horned Frogs the first lead of the game, 7-0. Green’s score capped off a 17-play, 99-yard scoring drive. TCU altered their play-calling on the first drive of the game, as they ran the ball 12 times on 17 plays. TCU’s game plan appeared to be to run to keep the clock moving and keep Tech’s high-flying offense off the field.3. KaVontae Turpin can still make people missWide receiver/returner KaVontae Turpin returned to the starting lineup at wide receiver and didn’t disappoint. Turpin led TCU in receiving in the first with three catches for 31 yards, and he also mixed in some of his patented jukes and cuts. That’s what they call a jump cut folks pic.twitter.com/VZgVOVQXIG— Mitchell Stehly (@StehlyMitchell) October 29, 2016However, he did not return any kicks or punts.Turpin hadn’t played since injuring his knee Sept. 17 against Iowa State.4. Patrick Mahomes II held in check Mahomes and Co. scored 59 points on 854 yards of total offense, 734 of which came from the arm of Mahomes. In the first half in Fort Worth, Mahomes totaled just 139 yards passing, a touchdown and interception on 28 attempts. Keeping him out of rhythm is one the keys to a TCU victory, and the Frogs could very well win the game if they hold Mahomes to similar second half totals.5. Brandon Hatfield has uneven first half TCU kicker Brandon Hatfield missed the first field goal attempt from 37 yards, his second missed field goal of the season, but he connected on his second field goal of the day from 23-yards out. For TCU to defeat the Red Raiders, they’ll need Hatfield to be nearly automatic in the second half.TCU will receive the second half kickoff.
