It follows Ladbrokes and William Hill in setting up their gambling licenses offshore.Chief executive David Yu told City A.M. the “lions share” of savings will be through tax but the firm will also benefit from synergies.The firm also announced its revenues were up 6.2 per cent on the same period a year earlier, despite poor weather and a decrease in average poker spending.

No savings at 50? I’d buy bargain FTSE 100 dividend stocks in this market crash

first_img Enter Your Email Address The FTSE 100’s recent market crash could prove to be a buying opportunity for many investors.Certainly, there is scope for the index to fall further. After all, the coronavirus outbreak could get worse before it improves. However, for investors with a long-term time horizon, there may be scope for a recovery over the coming years.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, even if you have no savings at age 50, now could be an opportune moment to start planning for retirement.Short-term risksClearly, investing in FTSE 100 shares is likely to be a risky move in the short run. The index’s past performance suggests that it could fall further than it has done in recent weeks, with previous bear markets such as the financial crisis causing a 50%+ decline in the index’s price level. And with the number of coronavirus cases unfortunately set to rise over the coming weeks, investor sentiment could be highly changeable.Recovery potentialHowever, over the long run, the FTSE 100 appears to offer strong recovery potential. It has a solid track record of producing improving performances following its downturns. In fact, no bear market or bull market has ever lasted in perpetuity. Therefore, there is likely to be a high chance of the index returning to its previous record highs over the coming years.For most people, this presents a buying opportunity. For example, if you are currently 50 years old, you are likely to have at least 10 years until you retire. This is likely to provide you with sufficient time for the FTSE 100 to successfully recover from its present lows. And through buying undervalued shares now, you could benefit from their prices including a wide margin of safety. This may ultimately lead to higher returns in the long run, as well as lower overall risks.Dividend opportunitiesWhile you may not require a passive income today, buying dividend shares could prove to be a shrewd move. They may become increasingly popular among investors over the next few years as low interest rates push income investors away from cash and towards equities.Furthermore, a large proportion of the FTSE 100’s past total returns have been derived from the reinvestment of dividends. Therefore, with the FTSE 100 currently having a dividend yield of around 6%, and many of its members offering even higher income returns, it may be possible to generate strong total returns from buying a range of income stocks and holding them.Clearly, there could be more difficult times ahead for all FTSE 100 companies. But through buying a diverse selection of businesses that have strong balance sheets, you could improve your return prospects. Over time, this may increase your chances of enjoying a passive income in retirement – even from a standing start at age 50.

I think the National Grid share price could be the FTSE 100’s best buy now

In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. National Grid (LSE: NG) is a favourite among dividend investors, and it’s been one of the safest during the Covid-19 crash. The National Grid share price did fall 25% in the early days of the pandemic-induced lockdown. But thanks to a strong start to the year and a recent recovery, it’s actually up 3.5% so far in 2020.But, during the kind of stock market crash we’re experiencing now, shouldn’t we ignore the safe and unaffected ones? Should we not, instead, look among the biggest fallers for the most promising recovery stocks? With the National Grid share price in positive territory this year, there’s little recovery to be had there.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…Always buy the bestWell, I definitely do see a stock market slump as a great time to buy oversold fallers. But I also think that some of the best stocks to buy during a slump are the very same ones to buy all the time. In my view, that’s solid FTSE 100 stocks paying dependable dividends.Now, there are plenty of those, so why National Grid? Especially when the year ended 31 March produced a profit fall? Full-year results showed a statutory pre-tax loss of 5%, leading to a fall in earnings per share (EPS) of 17%.But there’s more to it than that. National Grid reported a small underlying pre-tax profit gain of 1%, while underlying EPS dropped 1%. That’s plodding rather than exciting. But the National Grid share price isn’t supposed to be an exciting one. And it’s not a company to pursue for year-on-year growth.Long-term fortunesNo, National Grid’s long-term fortunes will reflect the wider markets and the economy. When we have tough years and weaker demand, it will reflect that. On that basis, I’m satisfied with that 2019-20 outcome, and with the share price’s progress.The bigger part of the lockdown hit has come after National Grid’s year-end. So shareholders should expect further weakness for the current year due to falling energy demand too. And, I do see that as a threat to some of our energy suppliers.British Gas owner Centrica, for example, has been struggling against smaller new competitors in recent years. And it’s suffered a loss of customers who have jumped ship for better deals. It’s still stuck with poor opinions on customer service too. That’s perhaps institutionalised from the days when British Gas’s monopoly status meant it didn’t need any, but it has to change.Solid income streamI see both threats and opportunities for the end-user energy suppliers. But how that competition goes really shouldn’t have much effect on the National Grid share price. If consumers decide to get their energy from Centrica or one of the other big suppliers, or if they plump for the smaller newcomers, it just doesn’t matter.They all have to send their electricity and gas through the national distribution networks. And that’s National Grid.And among tumbling FTSE 100 dividends, the National Grid one has kept up. For 2019-20 it has been boosted by 2.6%, for a 5% yield. In the short term the dividend might come under some pressure, but in the long term I expect a solid income stream. On a price-to-earnings multiple of around 16, I rate National Grid a buy.

To enable them to resume selling:Vendors will be provided with hand sanitiser and PPE, including a visor, reusable face mask and gloves.Vendors will only be able to return to the streets provided they are able to receive contactless card payments, to reduce the risk associated with cash transactions. Big Issue North is providing vendors with card payment machines, bought using public donations, and will work with them to make sure they can operate them.Vendors will only sell on a limited number of Big Issue’s agreed pitch locations, where social distancing is possible.No vendors who are shielding, or who have members of their household who are, will be able to sell the magazine. These vendors will continue to be able to access Big Issue’s hardship fund.Modifications have also been made to the offices from which the vendors buy their magazines, enabling the team to support vendors with appropriate safety measures.Vendors buy the magazine from Big Issue North for £1.50, and sell it for £3, keeping the profit they make.While vendors gradually return to work, Big Issue North will still be sold in stores, including Sainsbury’s, McColl’s, Co-Op, Asda, One Stop, Morrisons, Waitrose and Booths, and at issuu.com/bigissuenorth, as well as on the streets.Big Issue North started in December 1992 as a Manchester supplement within the London-based Big Issue, and has since grown into an independent publication, with close ties to the Big Issue, and distributed in the North West and Yorkshire and the Humber.The Big Issue’s vendors have also been unable to sell its magazines on the street due to the pandemic. Its initiatives have included launching an app and digital edition, and challenging the public to become ‘Covid Crusaders‘ and to sell the magazine on behalf of its street sellers.center_img Tagged with: COVID-19 Melanie May | 15 June 2020 | News Main image: Big Issue North seller Howard, who will be returning to work in Leeds.  356 total views,  2 views today Advertisementlast_img read more

Gov. Holcomb Signs Victim Bill With Prosecutors, IPAC Leadership

first_imgGov. Eric Holcomb ceremonially signed Senate Enrolled Act 551 on Wednesday in the Statehouse with the bill’s author and sponsor, prosecutors and two constituents all in attendance.SEA 551, authored by Sen. Mark Messmer, R-Jasper, and sponsored in the House by Rep. Wendy McNamara, R-Evansville, is a victims’ rights bill that addresses several important areas in the criminal justice world dealing with crime victims. The bill started when a constituent reached out to Sen. Messmer for help with a man who was grooming her 14-year-old daughter. Because no physical act had occurred, the mother was unable to file a restraining order. Sen. Messmer, with the help of county prosecutors, crafted language to put a stop to that type of behavior by allowing restraining orders against people who are making inappropriate contact with minors.“I am very pleased to see this legislation signed into law,” Messmer said. “SEA 551 will impact every Hoosier community by improving how we support victims as well as ensuring offenders are justly penalized for their actions.”SEA 551 contains several other provisions geared towards helping the victims of crimes, including adding confidentiality provisions for victims in court documents, barring the release of Department of Child Services reports during an ongoing criminal investigation, enhancing penalties on repeat strangulation offenders and allowing victims access to an emotional support animal or comfort item while testifying in court.The bill also addresses a gap in the current kidnapping and criminal confinement laws by creating an offense when the kidnapping or criminal confinement results in moderate bodily injuring to the victim. The legislation does away with the current practice of offenders having the opportunity to have their felony domestic battery conviction reduced to a misdemeanor.“To better protect domestic violence and child victims from their abusers, this new law will expand their privacy rights and ensure offenders are appropriately punished for their crimes,” McNamara said.  “Victims need to know that they are safe and have support, and this law will take steps to protect their physical and emotional health.”Prosecutors Bernard Carter, Lake County; Rodney Cummings, Madison County; and Patrick Harrington, Tippecanoe County, were all in attendance for the signing, along with IPAC Executive Director David Powell and Assistant Executive Director Chris Naylor.“We are thankful for all the hard work that went into this important bill,” said Powell. “We think this will be very impactful for the victims of crimes throughout Indiana.”The bill enjoyed broad bi-partisan support as it made its way through the legislature, it passed the Senate unanimously and moved out of the House with a vote of 92-4. The provision barring the disclosure of DCS reports has already become law, the rest of the bill will take effect on July 1, 2019.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
